 Ezekiel 9 Marking Same as Sealing in Revelation 7



Our words index the state of our heart; and whether men talk much or little, their words express the character of their thoughts.

Ellen G. White, Sons & Daughters, p. 180


     And the Lord said to him (the man clothed in linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side), Go through the midst of the Jerusalem, and put a MARK on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” Ezekiel 9: 4.   




From Testimonies to Ministers and Workers by E. G. White, Pacific Press Publishing Asso., Boise, Idaho, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, 1962 ed., pp. 444-48.  “Be Ye Clean” (From the tract The Sin of Licentiousness by same author).

The Ezekiel 9 angel “goes through the midst of Jerusalem,” sealing or marking men in their foreheads with an indelible mark, unalterable seal, the sign of God’s signal power and exclusive right to be worshipped as Creator, of those “who sigh and cry for the abominations done in the land and in the church. At the end of this sealing work  the merciful slaying of all those without it takes place. Read more

WHAT IS THE TRUE INTERPRETATION OF REVELATION 16: 12-16? (The Threefold Union in the Battle of Armageddon (Continued) 

 French poet Charles Baudelaire once said that “the greatest trick the devil pulled was fooling the world into believing that he doesn’t exist.”  Ellen G. White revealed back in 1884 that this deception is indeed one of the most successful agencies and heresies of the great deceiver: “Another subtle and mischievous error is the fast-spreading belief that Satan has no existence as personal being; that the name is used in Scripture merely to represent men’s evil thoughts and desires.” (Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, p. 348).

Again: “The position that it is of no consequence what men believe is one of Satan’s most successful deceptions.  He knows that the truth, received in the love of it, sanctifies the soul of the receiver [John 17:17]; therefore he is constantly seeking to substitute false theories, fables, another gospel [1 Tim. 1: 4; 4: 7; 2 Tim. 4: 4; Titus 1: 14; 2 Pet. 1: 16; 2 Cor. 11: 4]. . . .The discord and division which exist among the churches of Christendom are in a great measure due to the prevailing custom of wresting [twisting] the Scriptures to support a favorite theory. Instead of carefully studying God’s word with humility of heart to obtain a knowledge of His will, many seek only to discover something odd or original. . . . Whenever the study of the Scriptures is entered upon without a prayerful, humble, teachable spirit, the plainest as well as the most difficult passages will be wrested from their true meaning . . .  The word of God is plain to all who study it with a prayerful heart. “Light [of truth] is sown for the righteous.’ Psalm 97: 11. And no church can advance in holiness unless its members are earnestly seeking for truth as for hid treasure [Prov. 2: 4; Matt. 13: 44].”- Ibid, Maranatha, p. 132. Read more
