SDA Fundamental Beliefs
  • 18. The Gift of Prophecy One of the gifts of the
    Holy Spirit is prophecy. This gift is an
    identifying mark of the remnant church and was
    manifested in the ministry of Ellen. G. White .
    As the Lord's messenger, her writings are a
    continuing and authoritative source of truth
    which provide for the church comfort, guidance,
    instruction, and correction. They also make clear
    that the Bible is the standard by which all
    teaching and experience must be tested.

SDA Fundamental Beliefs
  • 19. Law of God The great principles of God's
    law are embodied in the Ten Commandments and
    exemplified in the life of Christ. They express
    God's love, will, and purposes concerning human
    conduct and relationships and are binding upon
    all people in every age

SDA Fundamental Beliefs
  • 20. Sabbath The beneficent Creator, after the
    six days of Creation, rested on the seventh day
    and instituted the Sabbath for all people as a
    memorial of Creation. The fourth commandment of
    God's unchangeable law requires the observance of
    this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest,
    worship, and ministry in harmony with the
    teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the
    Sabbath. The Sabbath is a day of delightful
    communion with God and one another. It is a
    symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our
    sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a
    foretaste of our eternal future in God's kingdom.
    The Sabbath is God's perpetual sign of His
    eternal covenant between Him and His people

Fundamental Beliefs
  • 25. Second Coming of Christ The second coming of
    Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the
    grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour's coming
    will be literal, personal, visible, and
    worldwide. When He returns, the righteous dead
    will be resurrected, and together with the
    righteous living will be glorified and taken to
    heaven, but the unrighteous will die

Fundamental Beliefs
  • 26. Death and Resurrection The wages of sin is
    death. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant
    eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day
    death is an unconscious state for all people.
    When Christ, who is our life, appears, the
    resurrected righteous and the living righteous
    will be glorified and caught up to meet their
    Lord. The second resurrection, the resurrection
    of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand
    years later.

Fundamental Beliefs
  • 27. Millennium and the End of Sin The millennium
    is the thousand-year reign of Christ with His
    saints in heaven between the first and second
    resurrections. During this time the wicked dead
    will be judged the earth will be utterly
    desolate, without living human inhabitants, but
    occupied by Satan and his angels. At its close
    Christ with His saints and the Holy City will
    descend from heaven to earth. The unrighteous
    dead will then be resurrected, and with Satan and
    his angels will surround the city but fire from
    God will consume them and cleanse the earth. The
    universe will thus be freed of sin and sinners

Latter-Day Prophets?
  • The Bible warns about those who would teach
    different things
  • The Bible is complete sufficient
  • The gift of prophecy has ceased

What Is The Sabbath?
  • The Sabbath is Misunderstood
  • The Hebrew, to cease
  • Seventh Day of Week
  • Saturday

Genesis 22-3
  • And by the seventh day God completed His work
    which He had done and He rested on the seventh
    day from all His work which He had done. Then God
    blessed the seventh day and sanctified it,
    because in it He rested from all His work which
    God had created and made.

Exodus 1626
  • Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh
    day, the sabbath, there will be none.

Exodus 208-11
  • Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six
    days you shall labor and do all your work, but
    the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your
    God in it you shall not do any work, you or your
    son or your daughter, your male or your female
    servant or your cattle or your sojourner who

Exodus 208-11 (Contd)
  • with you. For in six days the LORD made the
    heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in
    them, and rested on the seventh day therefore
    the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it

Deuteronomy 514-15
  • but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your
    God in it you shall not do any work And you
    shall remember that you were a slave in the land
    of Egypt, and the LORD your God brought you out
    of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched
    arm therefore the LORD your God commanded you to
    observe the sabbath day.

Nehemiah 913-14
  • Then Thou didst come down on Mount Sinai, and
    didst speak with them from heaven Thou didst
    give to them just ordinances and true laws, good
    statutes and commandments. So Thou didst make
    known to them Thy holy sabbath, and didst lay
    down for them commandments, statutes, and law,
    through Thy servant Moses.

Deuteronomy 52-3
  • The LORD our God made a covenant with us at
    Horeb. The LORD did not make this covenant with
    our fathers, but with us, with all those of us
    alive here today.

Exodus 3113
  • But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel,
    saying, You shall surely observe My sabbaths
    for this is a sign between Me and you throughout
    your generations, that you may know that I am the
    LORD who sanctifies you.

Exodus 3116-17
  • So the sons of Israel shall observe the
    sabbath, to celebrate the sabbath throughout
    their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is
    a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever
    for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth,
    but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and
    was refreshed.

Matthew 517-18
  • Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or
    the Prophets I did not come to abolish, but to
    fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and
    earth pass away, not the smallest letter or
    stroke shall pass away from the Law, until all is

John 1930
  • When Jesus therefore had received the sour wine,
    He said, It is finished! And He bowed His head,
    and gave up His spirit.

Hebrews 87
  • For if that first covenant had been faultless,
    there would have been no occasion sought for a

Hebrews 88
  • For finding fault with them, He says, "Behold,
    days are coming, says the Lord, when I will
    effect a new covenant with the house of Israel
    and with the house of Judah

Hebrews 101
  • For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the
    good things to come and not the very form of
    things, can never by the same sacrifices year by
    year, which they offer continually, make perfect
    those who draw near.

Hebrews 104
  • For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and
    goats to take away sins.

Galatians 324
  • Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us
    to Christ, that we may be justified by faith.

Galatians 317
  • What I am saying is this the Law, which came
    four hundred and thirty years later, does not
    invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God,
    so as to nullify the promise.

Galatians 325
  • But now that faith has come, we are no longer
    under a tutor.

Colossians 214
  • having canceled out the certificate of debt
    consisting of decrees against us and which was
    hostile to us and He has taken it out of the
    way, having nailed it to the cross.

Ephesians 214-15
  • For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups
    into one, and broke down the barrier of the
    dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the
    enmity, which is the Law of commandments
    contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might
    make the two into one new man, thus establishing

Romans 74
  • Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die
    to the Law through the body of Christ, that you
    might be joined to another, to Him who was raised
    from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God.

Romans 76-7
  • But now we have been released from the Law,
    having died to that by which we were bound I
    would not have known about coveting if the Law
    had not said, You shall not covet.

2 Thessalonians 21-2
  • Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the
    coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our
    gathering together to Him, that you may not be
    quickly shaken from your composure or be
    disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a
    letter as if from us, to the effect that the day
    of the Lord has come.

2 Peter 33-4
  • Know this first of all, that in the last days
    mockers will come with their mocking, following
    after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the
    promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers
    fell asleep, all continues just as it was from
    the beginning of creation.

2 Peter 35-7
  • For when they maintain this, it escapes their
    notice that by the word of God the heavens
    existed long ago and the earth was formed out of
    water and by water, through which the world at
    that time was destroyed, being flooded with
    water. But the present heavens and earth...

2 Peter 35-7 (contd)
  • His word are being reserved for fire, kept
    for the day of judgment and destruction of
    ungodly men.

2 Peter 38-10
  • But do not let this one fact escape your notice,
    beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a
    thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
    The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some
    count slowness, but is patient toward you, not
    wishing for any to perish but for all

2 Peter 38-10 (contd)
  • come to repentance. But the day of the
    Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens
    will pass away with a roar and the elements will
    be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and
    its works will be burned up.

Romans 25-10
  • But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant
    heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in
    the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous
    judgment of God, who will render to every man
    according to his deeds to those who by
    perseverance in doing good seek...

Romans 25-10 (contd)
  • ...for glory and honor and immortality, eternal
    life but to those who are selfishly ambitious
    and do not obey the truth, but obey
    unrighteousness, wrath and indignation. There
    will be tribulation and distress for every soul
    of man who does evil, of the Jew first and...
