The worldwide Seventh-day Adventist organization is calling for revival and reformation. Will it happen? Yes, but not with those who continue in apostasy. Those who “sigh and cry for all the abominations” that are done will not be deceived. (Ezekiel 9:4) It is false loyalty to the SDA Church that leads members to keep silent in a spiritual crisis. In order to warn God’s people, we are providing a section entitled, “Apostasy Continues,” which will be updated periodically as needed.
Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 3, p. 280
If God abhors one sin above another, of which His people are guilty, it is doing nothing in case of an emergency. Indifference and neutrality in a religious crisis is regarded of God as a grievous crime and equal to the very worst type of hostility against God.
The Great Controversy, pp. 464-465
In many of the revivals which have occurred during the last half century, the same influences have been at work, to a greater or less degree, that will be manifest in the more extensive movements of the future. There is an emotional excitement, a mingling of the true with the false, that is well adapted to mislead. Yet none need be deceived. In the light of God's word it is not difficult to determine the nature of these movements. Wherever men neglect the testimony of the Bible, turning away from those plain, soul-testing truths which require self-denial and renunciation of the world, there we may be sure that God's blessing is not bestowed.
And by the rule which Christ Himself has given, "Ye shall know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:16), it is evident that these movements are not the work of the Spirit of God.
