How To Keep The Sabbath, Part 3: “Ellen White’s & Harold Camping’s Views of the Sabbath”

“Come unto Me, all ye that labour

and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me;

for I am meek and lowly in heart:

and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

.

.

.

.

It is somewhat puzzling that these two messengers of the messages of the three angels found in Revelation 14, had two different opinions regarding which day of the week was the true Sabbath.

.

Harold Camping regarded the “Sunday Sabbath”, while Ellen White insisted that the true Sabbath had never been changed from “sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday”.

A SABBATH “REST UNTO YOUR SOULS”

.

And yet, both Ellen White and Harold Camping taught that Christ offers us a “rest unto your souls”. Yes, the greatest emphasis of both Ellen White and Harold Camping was concerning the spiritual rest which every true worshiper enjoys.

.

And this rest is actually the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God, which inspires the Believer to love the Bible, prayer, and meditating day and night on Christ, as revealed in the Scriptures. And by this indwelling Spirit, the Believer now receives a love for the things of Heaven.

.

And whether at work, or at rest, or at recreation with his or her family, the Believer strives to allow Christ to live out His life through that Christian Believer.

.

And this spiritual rest was the main thrust of both White’s and Camping’s ministries.

.

Now Harold Camping also saw the 7th Day Sabbath as the symbol of “Salvation by Grace”.

.

In other words, just as the 4th Commandment commands people to cease from doing any work on the Sabbath, likewise, God commands a person to cease from doing any work out of the hope of obtaining Salvation by that human effort.

THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN

.

And speaking of glittering diamonds, just go outside on any clear and dark night and behold the glittering diamonds of the Signs Of Heaven!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

Yes, like precious jewels, these heavenly signs sparkle brightly as they proclaim the precious truths of God’s Word.

And those who are willing to devote themselves to unceasing prayer and constant meditation of God’s Word, will begin to locate these heavenly messengers!

So why not put away our vain search for earthly treasures and begin to seach for the everlasting riches found throughout the Bible, and now to also seek after those precious gem-stones that God is revealing in the heavens…
