Report after conclusion of meetings: Major change has come to the Netherlands Union. Persons on the Executive Committee who have led away from the world church have been replaced. The news is very good, and a fuller report will follow. Praise be to God!

Sunday:

Friday:

Thursday:

In an unusual constituency meeting of the Dutch Union of Churches, laypeople are seeking to change the direction set by leaders there. Netherlands leaders have opposed the decision reached by delegates to the San Antonio General Conference Session in 2015. And in 2014 Dutch leaders announced support for LGBT members:

Although we acknowledge the biblical ideal of a monogamous, heterosexual relationship, we continue to emphasize that it is an ideal. The basis of Christianity is that all people fall short of God’s ideal; this is why we require God’s grace and Christ’s sacrifice. This leads to the conclusion that we, as Christians, must welcome all children of God — who all fall short of God’s ideal — into our churches with love.

We advise the churches in the Netherlands to fully commit themselves to ensuring that LGBTI individuals feel safe in the church. We would strongly advise against any steps to revoke the membership of LGBTI people, given the unsafe environment this would create in churches.

On Friday many committees will be appointed, including the new Executive Committee. Please pray for the Church in the Netherlands.

Update: Persons were elected on Friday who will help guide the Union into closer harmony with the world church! Details to be added when they become available.

  1. My “GOD”. The Netherlands too?

    This is the sure evidence that the “Holy Spirit” is
    slowly being withdrawn from the earth. Readying for
    the Second Coming of “JESUS CHRIST”! With the
    world promoting “Homosexuality, and the acceptance
    of Transgenders, and Lesbianism; brought on by the
    “Beast” and its Government! Its hard to fathom the
    Adventist church, Compromising “GOD’S” Love and
    conforming to this world! Especially after the church
    have been told; not too! “And be not conformed to
    this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of
    your “MIND”, that ye may prove what is that good, and
    acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom12:2

    The church must understand that the Men and
    Women that are called Transgender, Homosexuals,
    and Lesbians; belong to Satan; and Are The Worldly Victory Titles;
    Satan uses when he has taken control of these peoples mind.

    Wherefore the decision made recently, by the Adventist
    Executive Committee: was not of “GOD” and is flawed,
    for a lack of better understanding of the LGBTQ!

    It has come to pass, that in the Seventh-Day
    Adventist Church, there is an Achan within the camp,
    and the church has started “Shaking” ; and “Rebellion”
    has set in! There are two powerful Spirits that have
    entered into this church; brought in by Men that were
    trusted in the work! Women’s Ordination, and the LGBTQ
    Transgenderism” have defiantly taken centerstage!
    ..and these fake Brethren are promoting them!

    Yet at the same time these questionable, men making these
    vile decisions are encouraging the church to Love the
    “Transgender”and the LGBTQ people that refuse to “Repent”!

    Does this mean that the “Transgender out
    in California that was elected as an Elder, and made a
    Sabbath School teacher, at the Hollywood Seventh-
    Day Adventist Church dressed as a “Female” wearing
    a wig, in the Sanctuary; Should now be accepted as a
    new way of Leadership in the Adventist church?

    Does this also include the “Two Lesbians” that
    are married, with one being baptized at the Chico
    Seventh-Day Adventist Church, to also be accepted?

    By now it is no secret, that as of April 22,2017
    that Pastor Alicia Johnston, resigned her ministry as
    pastor, of the Seventh-Day Adventist church, she was
    entrusted with. To preach the Gospel of “JESUS CHRIST”
    and the Three Angels Message. Decided to reveal to the
    church that she was living an alternative life style, that
    she was in fact “GAY’ and Bisexual, and left the church and
    surrendered her life to the “sin” she refuses to let go!

    Alicia Johnston statement came after admitting
    the truth of her alternative life style; saying that she feels
    like she has been set free; and have decided to go out
    into the world and tell everyone struggling with their
    Sexual Identity” that it’s alright, and that “GOD” accepts
    the LGBTQ alternative life style! (This is not “Fiction”)

    But this is written: Know ye not, that to whom
    ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye
    are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of
    obedience unto righteousness? Romans 6:16.

    So Why are the Brethren allowing this “Open
    Abomination” to exist in our church? Coexisting with
    The saints?

    If we are to Love the Transgender, and “Homosexuals”
    then we must also tell them the truth! As it has been taught to all,of us that are against this wickedness; ..and
    share with them what the “Gospel of “JESUS
    CHRIST” says, and teaches!

    For The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken
    and a contrite heart,O God, thou wilt not despise.
    Psalm 51: 17

    Meaning “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to
    forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all
    unrighteousness. 1John1:9

    “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the
    unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return
    unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him; and
    to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7

    Wherefore, Gentlemen, of the “Netherlands” we cannot serve “GOD” anyway we want to and survive the Second Coming of “JESUS CHRIST”

    For if we maintain the Commission that “JESUS CHRIST” have given Unto us; and preach the Unadulterated Gospel of “JESUS CHRIST” The Devils will leave the church. For the Gospel of “JESUS CHRIST” is Extremely Offensive to A Demon!

  2. When will the discussion regarding the reversal of the Union’s stance on homosexuality and women’s ordination take place? Does anyone know yet?

    • Admin,

      This article does not give enough information as to what are the intentions of the constituents of the Dutch Union of Churches. While I celebrate what appears to be a stance, taken by the laymen, that goes against the unbiblical direction of its leaders, I am not certain as to what exactly they intend to do different than their leaders. We only have “change the direction” as a hint of what their intentions are. Need more info.

      Thanks

      • Hopefully some brother and sister Adventists from Netherlands can post a comment right here and update us all briefly about what is happening.

  3. Admin,

    This article does not give enough information to know, more precisely, what the Netherlands Constituents plan to do. Very much interested in finding out.

  4. Yes, hopefully so. In an area such as the Netherlands, the expection for reformation is extremely low.. from at least this outsiders perspective. To know that there are those taking a stand there would be a great encouragement in and out of their territory. Hopefully, someone will bring us up to date. Thanks for continuing your work as vanguards for the truth on this website.

    God Bless

  5. Conforming to the World
    “All who exalt their own opinions above divine revelation, all who would change the plain meaning of Scripture to suit their own convenience, or for the sake of conforming to the world, are taking upon themselves a fearful responsibility” (The Great Controversy, p. 268).

  6. Praise God for this encouraging news about a turn around in the Netherlands! We will keep praying that our brothers and sisters will speak out and stand up for God’s truth there.

  7. The Seventh Day Adventist Church is like NO OTHER. God is watching and guarding it very closely. We all need to tread very carefully around here. This church will not apostacize. It is will be cleaned up and made ready for translation. May God help us to walk humbly before Him and to remember He walks the candlesticks. Wow, Netherlands! God is alive yet! I tremble.
