In memoriam of those in the Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement who died for their faith.
Testimonies of faithfulness and steadfastness during Germany’s dark days
More than twenty years have passed since the terrible Second World War ended. Much has been spoken and written about that time. In several places memorials have been erected as a reminder of those inexpressible sufferings. In that time of great apostasy when the fury of war did its destructive work and the god of war was worshiped and glorified by nominal Christians, there were still people who had the courage to acknowledge Jesus as their Lord. They knew that salvation could be found in only One–Jesus Christ. Through love for their Lord they fulfilled His will; they “loved not their lives unto death” and courageously stood firm for their precious faith.
Faith is proven in times of testing. Thus the period under the rulership of the swastika was also a hard test for God’s people.

Our seminar is now culminating in the most important prophecies that relate directly to us. We want to identify distinctly what Jesus is saying to us in reference to the church of that other angel – the Revelation 18 angel.

We are looking at the salvation of God’s people under the Revelation 18 angel.
In our last study we beheld God’s church of 1844 proceeding to a point in time in which they fail to repent and are spewed out by Jesus Christ. Here Jesus is speaking to the church in His time that was on its way out, and, as we will see, in the Spirit of Prophecy this is exactly the same statement that is used for the Seventh-day Adventist Church: Read the rest of this entry
On January 30, 1933 Hitler became Chancellor of Germany. With incredible speed, he transformed Germany into a totalitarian society using terror and pervasive propaganda.
W. Mueller, President of the Seventh-day Adventist East German Conference said;
“The Christian welcomes with joy the reawakening of Germany and the fight of the Hitler government against unemployment. The Christian is happy to know that he direction of the country is in the hands of a man like Hitler, who frequently emphasizes that he received his post from God to whom he is responsible. As a non-drinker, non-smoker and vegetarian, he stands close to our conception of the reform of life.” Read the rest of this entry
