2 DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO STAND AGAINST TYRANNY ? August Landmesser was courageous enough to stand openly against Hitler in 1936

3 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death” Revelation 12:11

4 “Thus the message of the third angel will be proclaimed. As the time comes for it to be given with greatest power, the Lord will work through humble instruments, leading the minds of those who consecrate themselves to His service. The laborers will be qualified rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the training of literary institutions. Men of faith and prayer will be constrained to go forth with holy zeal, declaring the words which God gives them. The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of enforcing the observances of the church by civil authority, the inroads of spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power--all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands will listen who have never heard words like these.” Great Controversy, page 606 Great Controversy, page 606

5 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be a witness unto me…” Acts 1:8

6 “And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Jeremiah 3:15 Jeremiah 3:15


8 The Lord called me out…

9 “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” Psalms 51:5 Psalms 51:5

10 In-iq-ui-ty \ noun 1. absence of moral or spiritual values; "the powers of darkness" 2. A grossly immoral act; a sin. From the Latin: iniquitas : in- not + aequus equal.

11 Blessing: permission for God to work in your life “Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear [the guilty]; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth [generation].” Exodus 34:7


13 Goethals – Darjeeling “Queen of the Hills, India at the border of Tibet Luciferianism is the embodiment of knowledge that acknowledges the Principles of Lucifer as the "Light of Conscious Evolution". As a god or as a principle, Lucifer is the "Light Bearer". The Light which illuminates the consciousness of sapient beings and heightens the senses and awareness to experience Higher Levels of Being. Luciferianism is the path of Self-Attainment, the Higher Self. It is the Centered Path, neither Left nor Right, for Lucifer is the Star that shines in the morning and evening, that point of light between opposing forces. Philosophical - Spiritual Luciferianism has its roots in the esoteric teachings of Western Occultism and Hermeticism. This view holds that, while Satan represents the manifestation of the Material Realm, Lucifer represents the highest spiritual ideal, one's true Will, the Holy Guardian Angel, etc. As all “material” things are energy or light, Lucifer is seen as the creating force of the universe, ever present.

Some classically-educated Free Masons used "luciferian" in the scholarly sense of "bringing enlightenment," invoking Prometheus who stole fire from the gods to bring to man.

18 “Modern spiritualism and the forms of ancient witchcraft and idol worship--all having communion with the dead as their vital principle--are founded upon that first lie by which Satan beguiled Eve in Eden: "Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof,... ye shall be as gods." Genesis 3:4, 5. Alike based upon falsehood and perpetuating the same, they are alike from the father of lies.” Patriarchs and Prophets, page 685 Patriarchs and Prophets, page 685

19 “Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.” Psalms 51:9-12 Psalms 51:9-12

20 “All that the Father giveth me, shall come to me, and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out” & “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me, draw him : and I will raise him up at the last day” John 6:37 & 44 John 6:37 & 44

21 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.” John 10:27-30

22 “The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident. One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.” Psalms 27:1-4

23 “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life : no man commeth unto the father but by me.” John 14:6 John 14:6

24 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

25 “God now calls upon you to repent, to be zealous in the work. Your eternal happiness will be determined by the course you now pursue. Can you reject the invitations of mercy now offered? Can you choose your own way? Will you cherish pride and vanity, and lose your soul at last? The word of God plainly tells us that few will be saved, and that the greater number of those, even, who are called will prove themselves unworthy of everlasting life. They will have no part in heaven, but will have their portion with Satan, and experience the second death.” Testimonies, Volume 2, page 293.3


27 “Study to show thy self approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 2 Timothy 2:15 “The Bible is the only rule of faith and doctrine.” Review and Herald July 17, 1888 Review and Herald July 17, 1888

30 William Booth Catherine Booth

31 August 20, 1912: William Booth, founder and first General of the Salvation The founder of The Salvation Army, adopted a red shield as the logo for his Christian ministry. Red Shield is pronounced “Rothschild” in German

32 Acording to a reference quoted by many (Wilson, Derek. Rothschild The Wealth and Power of a Dynasty. NY: Charles Schribner’s Sons, p. 92 Source of quote given in the book.) The Rothschilds also wielded much influence and power not only in Secret Societies, but also in Christendom’s churches. The Salvation Army under the suggestion of the Rothschilds adopted the Red Shield (Roth-red Schild-shield) for their logo. One history of the Rothschilds remarks, "The Rothschilds had rapidly propelled themselves into a position of immense financial power and political influence. They were an independent force in the life of Europe, accountable to no one and, to a large extent, reliant on no one. Popular lampoons depicted them as the real rulers of Christendom..."

33 Mark Cleminson’s grandfather was Bertram Charles Cleminson, son of Charles Wright Cleminson (great grandfather) who married Stella Kathleen Costello on Nov. 15, 1900. Bertram was the second son and second child of Charles and Stella. Stella died when Mark’s grandfather was a young child. Bertram was born in 1903 and died in 1963. Mark's father & his brother (uncle) went to a "Catholic" boarding school paid for by the Freemasons - odd since the outward Catholic Church condemn it. The boarding school still exists on the border of Tibet in the Himalayan Mountains. Mark's father' indicated that, "Irish Christian Brothers maintained the school", and "that Franciscan Friars gave mass". Mark’s grandfather was a Freemason in an aristocratic white lodge in Calcutta where many other VIPs were members. Mark’s grandmother (father's mom) had an Uncle called Bob Booth, so from this marriage to Bertram the relationship to the Booth family is actual bloodline. Mark’s father had a number of Booths in boarding school that were cousins. Mark’s father also indicated that his maternal grandmother was rumored to have ties into the Salvation Army.

34 “There seems to be no evidence to support the statement made on some masonic websites that William Booth was a freemason.” Copyright (c) 2003 The Salvation Army All Rights Reserved.

35 Freemason: Free·ma·son : a member of a major fraternal organization called Free and Accepted Masons or Ancient Free and Accepted Masons that has certain secret rituals illuminati: il·lu·mi·na·ti Etymology: Italian & New Latin; Italian, from New Latin, from Latin, plural of illuminatus 1 capitalized : any of various groups claiming special religious enlightenment 2 : persons who are or who claim to be unusually enlightened



38 “Those who stand under the blood-stained banner of Prince Immanuel cannot be united with the Free Masons or with any secret organization. The seal of the living God will not be placed upon anyone who maintains such a connection after the light of truth has shone upon his pathway. Christ is not divided, and Christians cannot serve God and mammon. The Lord says, "Come out from among them, and be ye separate,... and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and My daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.“

39 “If God has any new light to communicate, He will let His chosen and beloved understand it, without their going to have their minds enlightened by hearing those who are in darkness and error. I was shown the necessity of those who believe that we are having the last message of mercy, being separate from those who are daily imbibing new errors. I saw that neither young nor old should attend their meetings; for it is wrong to thus encourage them while they teach error that is a deadly poison to the soul and teach for doctrines the commandments of men. The influence of such gatherings is not good.” Early Writings 1882

40 “Not to Follow Salvation Army Methods.--The Lord has marked out our way of working. As a people we are not to imitate and fall in with Salvation Army methods. This is not the work that the Lord has given us to do. Neither is it our work to condemn them and speak harsh words against them. There are precious, self-sacrificing souls in the Salvation Army. We are to treat them kindly. There are in the Army honest souls, who are sincerely serving the Lord, and who will see greater light, advancing to the acceptance of all truth. The Salvation Army workers are trying to save the neglected, downtrodden ones. Discourage them not. Let them do that class of work by their own methods and in their own way. But the Lord has plainly pointed out the work that Seventh-day Adventists are to do” Welfare Ministry, page 251

41 “The Lord is testing His people to see who will be loyal to the principles of His truth. Our work is to proclaim to the world the first, second and third angels’ messages. In our duties we are neither to despise nor to fear our enemies. To bind ourselves up by contracts with those not of our faith is not in the order of God. We are to treat with kindness and courtesy those who refuse to be loyal to God, but we are never, never to unite with them in counsel regarding the vital interest of His work.” Councils on Health 1923

42 Three Biblical Characteristics of The Children of Disobedience

43 And no marvel, for Satan (Lucifer) himself is transformed into an Angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

44 “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders: insomuch that(if it were possible,) they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore, if they shall say unto you, Behold he is in the desert, go not forth: Behold he is in the secret chambers, believe it not.” Matthew 24:24-26 Matthew 24:24-26

45 “And when the woman saw, that the tree was good for food and it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, and she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband, with her, and he did eat. Then the eyes of them were opened, and they knew they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.” Genesis 3:6,7

46 “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son, or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination (foretune telling), or an observer of times (astrologer) or an inchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer (conjurer of spirits). For all that do these things, are an abomination unto the LORD, and because of these abominations, the LORD thy God doth drive out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.” Deuteronomie 18:8-13

47 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul? Or what shall a man give an exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:26

48 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.” Matthew 6:24 Matthew 6:24

49 “A power from beneath is working to bring about the last great scenes in the drama-Satan coming as Christ, and working with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who are binding themselves together in secret societies.” Testimonies Volume Eight, page 28


51 Anubis - Lord of the dead. “The duties of Anubis were guiding the souls of the dead round about the Underworld and into the kingdom of Osiris was shared by Anubis with another god whose type and symbol was a jackal, and whose name was Ap-uat, i.e., the "Opener of the ways;" formerly Anubis and Ap-uat were considered male and female. The function of each god was to "open the ways," and therefore each might be called Ap-uat, but, strictly speaking, Anubis was the opener of the roads of the North, and Ap-uat the opener of the roads of the South' in fact, Anubis was the personification of the Summer Solstice, and Ap-uat of the Winter Solstice.” Anubis was identified as the Greek god Hermes.

52 “And he said, “draw not nigh hither put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest, is holy ground you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5

53 “And Jesus answering, saith unto them Have faith in God! For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou moved and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith, shall come to pass: he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:22-23

54 …It is a solemn time for God's people, but if they stand close by the bleeding side of Jesus, He will be their defense. He will open ways that the message of light may come to the great men, to authors and lawmakers. They will have opportunities of which you do not now dream, and some of them will boldly advocate the claims of God's downtrodden law.” Selected Messages, Book 3, page 389

55 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20

56 “We are living in a time when life is most precious and most interesting. The end of all things is at hand. Startling developments will be continually unfolding before us; for unseen agencies are at work, manifesting intense activity. The powers of darkness from beneath are moving upon human agents, and evil men are cooperating with evil angels to war against the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus; at the same time a power from above is moving upon those who will yield to divine influences, and the people of God are cooperating with heavenly intelligencies. Nothing short of real, genuine faith will survive the strain that will come upon every soul of man in these last days to test and try him.” The Youth’s Instructor, August 3 1893

57 “God has called us as a people to be a peculiar treasure unto Himself. He has appointed that His church on earth shall stand perfectly united in the Spirit and counsel of the Lord of hosts to the end of time.” 2nd Select Messages, page 397

58 “Now is God's time, and His time is your time. Fight the good fight of faith, refusing to think or to talk unbelief. The world is to hear the last warning message.” Testimonies to the Church, Vol. 8, page 53 Testimonies to the Church, Vol. 8, page 53
