Interest Of The S.D.A. Denomination
CARMEL NOW HONORED WITH HEADQUARTERS' HOME
happy to announce that the headquarters office of the sealing message moved from
Waco to Mt. Carmel Center on September 29 to its new and permanent home location
for the proclamation of the message of the "True Witness to the Laodiceans."
"Testimonies for the Church," Vol. 3, p. 253.
Therefore, we request all the brethren in present truth to approach the
throne of grace with thanksgiving and praises to our heavenly Father for His
merciful kindness and many blessings. May
we be true to our trust so that our dear brethren who are in the Laodicean, 'sad
deception" (Vol. 3, pp. 252, 253) may be drawn to the light of present
truth before it is too late, for thus saith the Lord.
If the watchman "seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people; then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet,
and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be
upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his
blood shall be upon him. But he
that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the
people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he
is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's
hand. So thou, O son of man, I have
set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word
at My mouth, and warn them from Me. When
I say unto the wicked O wicked man, thou shalt die; if thou dost not speak to
warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at thine hand." (Ezek.
buildings that were under construction being finished and ready for occupancy
have brought a great relief to all of us and by the 16th of this month, though
very congested, Mt. Carmel's subjects who immigrated from other states will be
living on this holy mount.
now laying the foundation for a training school building for those who wish to
prepare themselves for the declaration of this final warning to God's dear
church, and our prayers are that this building shall be finished without delay,
for there is an enormous amount of work yet to be done before we will be able to
take care of the ever increasing demand for equipment needed in the proclamation
of the eleventh hour call.
immediate necessities now are: workers' living quarters, boys' and girls'
dormitories, work shop, laundry, bakery, kitchen and dining room, children's and
old peoples' homes, garages, etc., etc. Hence,
we trust that the friends of present truth will not fail in doing their part
lest they be cursed with the curse of Meroz.
Said the angel of the Lord, "Curse ye bitterly the inhabitants
thereof; because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord
against the mighty." (Jud.
5:23.) Let us strive to obtain a reward like that of Jael.
"He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in
a lordly dish. She put her hand to
the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer. "
"Blessed shall she be above women in the tent."
these things "engross the whole mind, the whole attention."
Early Writings, 118. We have
just a little time left in which to get ready and we should not slow down now
but rather speed up. Some of our
brethren who were too zealous in raising their goals for the advancement of the
Third Angel's Message to the heathen before the light of present truth found
them are now, in the advancement of the Third Angel's Message in its "loud
cry" to their own brethren, taking a vacation!
Are you, brother, are you, Sister, doing as much for the "closing
work for the church" as you were while asleep in your Laodicean "sad
deception"? If not, ask
yourself, Why not? Are you of the
class shown to the prophet of whom the Lord said, "Thou son of man, the
children of thy people still are taking against thee by the wall and in the
doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying,
Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord.
And they come

thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as My people, and they hear
thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a
pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but
they do them not. And when this
cometh to pass, (lo, it will come, ) then shall they know that a prophet hath
been among them." (Ezek.

ten years I was happy in the truth, but later, as I saw the church of God
departing from the fundamental principles, I felt the Lord was going to do
something for us. Ever since I
received the copy of the SRod, a glimpse of light was in my spiritual eyes in
such a way that I could read this wonderful book many times... because I had a
desire to understand about the 144,000....

eating and conversation and have gained a greater love for my brethren.
Yes, it makes me sad that only so few are enough interested in their
salvation to study the truth for themselves.
Too many forget that God is just, and merciful.

paying of the tithe. We have been
very slack on paying it....So after reading the Code, I am going to pay it in
full right now.
the SRod my belief in Sr. White's writings has been strengthened and now I have
a keen desire for 'Testimonies, ' and I'm going to buy the full set.
Since reading some of her books and the many citations which the SRod
contain I can't help but feel that she is a prophet.
"SRod, Vol. 2, p. 257 says the former rain is the Spirit of
Prophecy, but 'Desire of Ages, '827; 'Testimonies for the Church,' Vol. 8, p.
21; and 'The Great Controversy, '611 say the outpouring of the Spirit was in
apostolic days. Please harmonize
The questioner will find the answer to the above in Code #5, pp. 5, 6.
"SRod, Vol. 2, p. 47 says Nebuchadnezzar did not yield his heathen
heart to God and page 49 says God in His mercy saved the king. "He became a
humble child of God.' I am unable to see the harmony in these two
God "in His mercy saved the king" and not because of
Nebuchadnezzar's good deeds.
"SRod, Vol. 2, p. 240 explains that Jude 14 & 15 refer to the
coming of the Lord to His temple, but 'Testimonies for the Church, ' Vol. 6, p.
392 applies it to the second coming of Christ.
How do you harmonize these and Mal. 3:1-3?"
Jude 14 & 15 are explained in SRod, Vol. 2, p. 162, 241.
However, we may add: the perfect fulfillment of this scripture embraces a
Vol. 1 Symbolic Code
No. 16 (Texas--1935) 2
in which three judicial events are to expire: namely, first, the investigative
judgment for the dead as He came to His heavenly temple in 1844; second, the
investigative judgment for the living that is soon to take place; third,
Christ's second coming and the judgment during the millennium, and at last the
final execution of His judgment after the millennium. It takes all these events to perfectly fulfill the words:
"To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among
them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all
their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
Three first applies as a type to the purification of the earthly temple in the
days of Christ (John 2:14, 15), but the direct application finds its fulfillment
in the anti-type, that is, in the purification of the church when He comes to
His earthly temple (church) to purify the sons of Levi (the ministry--the
144,000). After this He comes for
the investigative judgment of the living to His heavenly temple to blot out
their sins. See "The
Shepherd's Rod, "Vol. 2, pp. 240-246, 214-221.
"Are the 144,000, after being sealed, to go and kill all the others
in the S.D.A. church who failed to receive the seal?"
The slaying of the tares in the church is plainly foretold that this work
is not man's duty to perform. The
prophet Ezekiel, in vision, was shown that the angels who bear the slaughter
weapons are the ones whom the Lord commissioned to "slay utterly old and
young, both maids, and little children, and women"...but to "come not
near any man upon whom is the mark." (Ezek.
9:6.) The Lord makes this
destruction of the "tares" still plainer by His parabolic

the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to
burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn."
shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the
wicked from among the just." (Matt.
"Please explain the last verses of Revelation Six.
If the seventh seal is the purification, what takes place under the sixth
seal to cause kings, captains, every bondman, every freeman to fear the wrath of
the Lamb to the extent that they hide themselves in the dens and in the
The answer to the above is found in the SRod, Vol. 2, pp. 175-180.
"If Jer. 25:31 takes place at the second coming of Christ, how can
He plead with all flesh?"
This question is answered by Isa. 66:16, for there, too, is stated that
He will "plead with all flesh," and the September number of the Code,
p. 7 proves that the Lord begins to plead with all flesh in the proclamation of
the sealing message and the fulfillment of Ezekiel Nine in the church and will
end at the close of probation when the Third Angel's Message shall have been
proclaimed in all the world for a witness unto all nations.
Therefore, by the manifestation of God's judgments, and by the preaching
of the message in the time of the Loud Cry "in all the world for a witness
unto all nations" He pleads "with all flesh."
"What do you advise as to the education of our children, especially
when the church school is closed to them?"
If the children are rejected by the church school, then as there is
nothing else one can do, the next best thing is to send them to the public
school until the Lord gives us further light on this subject.
However, those who take the responsibility to turn a child out from
school just because the child, according to his conscience, would rather obey
God than the traditions of men, the Lord says: "It were better for him that
a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he
should offend one of these little ones."
"A number of times the S.D.A. ministers have quoted the Rod as
saying that after the slaughter, the 'Rods' think they will have possession of
the denomination--including the churches, institutions, etc.
I have seen nothing definite regarding this and have always been of the
opinion that the 144,000 would simply inherit the truths and the message.
It seems improbable that the law would allow those left to have any of
the material things since most of them will have been disfellowshipped, and
would we want them? Do you have
anything definite on this?"
These institutions legally belong to the members of the S.D.A.
denomination and therefore, when those who do not receive the seal of
Vol. 1 Symbolic Code
No. 16 (Texas--1935) 3
their foreheads fall under the slaughter weapons of the angels, naturally the
ones who are left will be the legal owners of all the denominational assets, and
as only those who have the seal will be left, there will be no controversy about
the legal ownership of the institutions. Though
many will be disfellowshipped this would have no bearing as long as we stay with
the denomination whether they recognize us as members or not.
This condition will prove that the membership is split in factions, and
as one faction passes away the other that remains would naturally constitute the
denomination and control all its institutions.
Moreover, the ministerial faction has neither legal right nor religious
ground upon which to disfellowship any of us, for we have done nothing to give
them the right to cast us out. If
we even now went to law we could win back our membership, for we stand true to
the fundamental principles upon which the institutions were erected and the
denomination founded, but as they have departed from them and are refusing to
get back, on one hand by their conduct they will prove to the legal authorities
that they are unlawfully taking possession of the denomination, while on the
other hand we by our good behavior will prove to be the legal owners of it.
Hence, denying us membership without any legal or religious ground does
not make them right and us wrong.
"Does not this statement, "Another message of warning and
instruction was to be given to the church' ("The Great Controversy,
"p. 424) refer to the Loud Cry--Revelation 18?"
This "warning and instruction," according to the paragraph that
follows, is in connection with the purification of the church and it is this
warning and instruction that bring the Loud Cry--Revelation 18.
"Rev. 8:3 says the angel offered incense 'with the prayers of all
saints,' but the SRod says, 'Note the prayer is offered for all saints.'
Why 'for'? Was it not the
prayers of all saints instead of for all saints?"
The SRod is endeavoring to explain that the Angel offered the saints'
prayers with the incense; that is, He takes the prayers of the saints and in
their behalf offers them with the incense before the throne.
Thus the prayers of the saints are offered (brought) by the Angel before
the throne "for" all the saints and not that the Angel Himself prayed
for all the saints.
"Is Bro. Houteff paying for every convert brought to the SRod from the
Yes, Bro. Houteff is paying
for every convert but not as purported. It
cost something to carry this work and to reach the people, and therefore Bro.
Houteff is paying something to accomplish this great work.
However, if the questioner wants to know if Bro. Houteff is paying so
much per head to any one who brings in a convert, we say, No.
Those who go to work by giving studies and creating interest he helps
them with their expenses to the amount of success they have. Therefore, this
divine principle gives to every believer an opportunity to go to work in the
Lord's vineyard. This rule leaves without an excuse every one who is able to
go to work, provides the "hire" for every worthy laborer and sifts out
those who may be following for the "loaves and fishes."
Quickly find your place, my brother and my sister, for the day is far
spent and "the night cometh, when no man can work."
"In the study on 'One Taken and the Other Left, ' Matt. 13:49 is
understood by some to apply also to the literal coming of Christ.
If this be so, then how are we to apply the statement on page 24 of tract
#1, 'The Dardanelles of the Bible, ' which says: 'This separation also applies
to the purification of the church, for the bad ones were taken away from among
the good, and not the good from among the bad. The bad that were in the net
(church) were thrown out, and the good ones left.'
It is not making a double application, but is stated because of what is
said on page 23 of tract #1, and is merely showing that the two parables are
referring to the same event,--the purification of the church, which is more
clearly described on page 25. There are no wicked among the just at the time Christ comes
in the clouds, for the saints are then in companies separate from all worldlings.
See "Early Writings," 282, 283.
"Is Bro. Houteff paying for the land on Mt. Carmel from the tithe? From

The tract of land on which Mt. Carmel Center stands was purchased last
April and is to be used in the work of carrying the sealing message in the
ingathering of the 144,000--the "firstfruits" and, it may be also used
for the ingathering of the "great multitude"--the second fruits, and
for caring for the worthy poor, aged, and disabled who have not only accepted
the message of the True Witness to the Laodiceans, but who are also walking in
its penetrating light as revealed by the SRod.

the money derived from the sales of the SRod volumes profit and principle since

questioner has doubtless heard many fairy tales about the SRod and its great
work, for we find that most of the people, even those who claim to believe that
the teaching of the SRod is inspired, are inclined to question, criticize, find
fault, rather than to help make this charitable institution a fitting place for
God's presence and for a blessing to His people--"the poor, the maimed, the
lame, the blind" of the "streets and lanes of the city"--and sad
to say that those who have done the least to help us with their money are the
first to find fault and the most zealous that their plans and ideas should be
followed in this "closing work for the church"--the laying of the
foundation for the finishing of the great closing work for the whole world.
saying by their actions, "Let me tell you how to teach your message"
("Testimonies to Ministers," 476), notwithstanding that the Spirit of
God has forewarned them in the following plain words: "There will be those
among us who will always want to control the work of God, to dictate even what
movements shall be made when the work goes forward under the direction of the

who fall in this temptation and pride of opinion are fulfilling Luke 19:14.

not keep our friends in darkness concerning our work, and to relieve them from
overtaxing their minds, we say, This is the best we have.
It has cost them nothing and if it is not the thing they are looking for,
they need not overtax their minds as to how this great work will be carried on

the most common causes for various diseases is constipation. Those who desire to keep well should not let a day pass by
with less than two good bowel movements. It
is better to take any drug laxative than to allow the system to get filled with
poison. However, one need not use
harmful drugs when he can obtain a remedy which will be practically harmless.
An enema is a good colon eliminator in an emergency.
defective elimination can be corrected by a proper diet and bending exercise,
there is no reason why, at least in most cases, that the normal functions of the
bowels should not be restored. A
daily use of a little fruit almost of any kind, whether dried or fresh, will aid
to relieve this condition. One kind
of fruit might be an effectual aid to one person while it would not be to
another. Therefore, the individual
should exercise his judgment by personal experience as to the kind of fruit he

cabbage, carrots, turnips, green corn, etc. which have been put through a food

or diluted canned milk will bring the desired results for some individuals.
All white flour products, pastries, and confections should be positively
avoided. Honey will take the place
of sweets. The use of bran may at
first be a good eliminator, but it has the tendency to be habit-forming, and at
last becomes ineffective and leaves the individual in worse condition than in
the beginning: and besides this a sensitive stomach can not handle it.
Soft, sticky "mushes" eaten as breakfast foods may be sparingly
used when enough roughage is taken along with them and when defective
elimination does not prevail.
nearly all nutmeats are more or less constipating, when good judgment is
exercised they can with wisdom be used with success, and vegetarians will find
them so essential that it is almost impossible to maintain health without them.
Nevertheless their being a highly concentrated food, it is very easy to
overeat of them, thus bringing more harm upon the system than by a proportionate
over consumption of more bulky articles of less food value.
For an example, if walnuts are used at each meal, two good sized ones are
all the average individual can stand. When
using peanut butter, two level teaspoons are sufficient.
If these nutmeats are used only once a day, one half of the above daily
ration is all the system can successfully handle.
This of course depends much on the richness and the food value that the
meal contains. For some individuals
even this amount is too much and will bring headache or other disagreeable
effects to which nature resorts as a warning against such transgressions.
not safe for one to try to maintain health by using the above mentioned articles
without the legumes such as beans, peas, lentils, etc., except they be replaced
if necessary, by a substitute. Dairy products should not be used at all, save
for the time being, milk, cream, and cottage cheese. Eggs are harmful to children and to youth, but may be
sparingly used by others when necessary. This,
however, is not to be understood to mean that eggs, when used now and then in
foods such as griddle cakes (not regular pancakes), rice, etc., should not be
eaten by children and youth.
should not forget that the human machine needs a lubricant to perform its daily
task. Vegetarians should have this
constantly in mind and should use a little vegetable oil in nearly all foods.
Olive oil is the best. However,
other good oils can be used. We are
not definitely clear about cotton seed oils, and imitation butter fats
(margarines). It is safest to avoid them.
It is not necessary to use butter spread on bread, but those who are in
the habit of doing so and who think they can not get along without it can use
thick cream. However, plain bread
is more healthful.
the prevailing disorders of our day is gastritis, especially among S.D.A.'s.
This sickness, as well as many others, is a warning to God's people that
it is the result of neglecting to live the principles of health reform, and that
since the time the light on this subject came to us as a people there has been a
curse resting upon us.
stomach disorder is common at all ages, and is caused principally by a faulty
diet--overeating, wrong combinations, poor cooking, spoiled food, etc.
Meals in succession consisting of fruit, such as apples, grapes, oranges,
watermelons, etc. without any other food which contains some sort of a
lubricant, when continued for some time, will bring this condition, also raw
root vegetables may bring the same effect, but a little peanut butter with each
meal will in most cases counteract the evil.
disease is often brought about by starvation through irregularity; that is, as
the stomach is constantly endeavoring to grind or digest the food by one wall
working against the other, when left empty for some time, or a number of times
now and then, the constant friction will irritate the lining and cause
inflammation, bring pain, sickly feeling, belching of gas, etc. Soon after a meal there is a relief, but as the absence of
gastric juices and the abnormal or inflamed condition of the stomach retards
digestion, fermentation sets in, and the trouble is renewed.
If and when the food and the gas leave the stomach, there should be
relief, but just then this attrition starts anew between the inflamed walls and
instead of feeling better and improving, the trouble grows worse if food is not
taken. Sometimes this condition is
brought about by an excessive flow of gastric juices, produced by
over-stimulated secretional glands, working on an empty stomach.
the only remedy for this illness is one that will heal the lining, and the only
measure which will do this is on the one hand, not to leave the stomach go empty
and, on the other, to eat easily digested

of attrition, and to reduce the flow of acid in the case of abnormal gland

less of warm cream (not hot) to which has been added some milk and the beaten

necessary minerals and elements for the upkeep of the body.
condition of the stomach is very bad, even this easily digested and soothing
food may not set well. However, as
there is nothing better that we can prescribe at this time, and as the stomach
must not be left empty to continue wearing itself out, the patient may take in
less of this liquid food at a time, but precaution must be exercised that, just
as soon as it leaves the stomach (not before nor long after), more of this
liquid be taken in. When the
digestive organs are capable of taking care of this article of food, a slice or
two of bread well and slowly toasted but not burned, may be added. Well browned zweiback does not contain the food value.
Cottage cheese made of cream is excellent too.
Buttermilk, yogurt, and sour milk are also good.
After the stage is reached where these foods are well digested, it is
advisable to try a glass of fruit juice half an hour before meals.

but they should be such as will not revive the old trouble, and of very small
quantities until there is evidence that the system can handle these articles in
who have this trouble, please inform us of the results after giving this
treatment a fair trial. But
remember that one bad combination, one wrong eating, will either entirely or
partly bring back the old trouble; therefore great care must be exercised as to
when, what, how, and how much one shall eat.
Never take a chance. Always leave the table while you are yet hungry.

remedy for every case. Therefore,

of careless habits. A little peanut
butter to which a proportionate amount of honey is added if desired, on a slice
of whole wheat bread at each meal, especially when the meal consists of fruit or
raw vegetables, will help prevent this gastric complaint coming back.
Never use roasted peanut butter if you can obtain the raw, which you will
find more delicious and healthful.
butter cooked with grains or roasts makes the food article too rich and too
heavy. Hence, it is well to avoid
such combinations. The best foods

one should think himself a criterion for all.
Not all can eat the same things. Foods

harmful, to another. Some can not

It is absurd to entertain the idea that your fine mechanism can continue

who neglect to conform to these health principles, need not think if they are
sick, or if they get sick, that God is going to work a miracle to restore them
