PROPHETS AND THE LAW PROPHESY NO MORE AFTER JOHN THE BAPTIST per Matthew 11:13.

The book of Apocalypse (Revelation) took over prophesying because in it God the the Father revealed to Jehovah (Jesus) what will happen and Jesus dispatched Angel of Jehovah (His Angel) to John so he can record the prophecies for our education and edification. Apostle John is our last prophet.


Matthew 11:13 ASV
(13)  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.


Luke 16:14-17 ASV
(14)  And the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things; and they scoffed at him.
(15)  And he said unto them, Ye are they that justify yourselves in the sight of men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.
(16)  The law and the prophets were until John: from that time the gospel of the kingdom of God is preached, and every man entereth violently into it.
(17)  But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one tittle of the law to fall.


Ephesians 4:11-12 ASV
(11)  And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
(12)  for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ:

How does Jesus teach to weigh the worth of a Prophet or a Messenger so that we can fear such Prophet or Messenger?

To qualify as a true prophet from Jesus, the prophecy of the Prophet or Messenger must have materialized. The prophecy of the Apocalypse will come to pass. Prophet John can only speak of the last prophecy of Jesus to the world.

Deuteronomy 18:18-22 Darby
(18)  A prophet will I raise up unto them from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
(19)  And it shall come to pass that the man who hearkeneth not unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
(20)  But the prophet who shall presume to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.
(21)  And if thou say in thy heart, How shall we know the word that Jehovah hath not spoken?
(22)  When a prophet speaketh in the name of Jehovah, and the thing followeth not, nor cometh to pass, that is the word which Jehovah hath not spoken; the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: be not afraid of him.

Apocalypse or Revelation was written as a guide for all the ages of Christian Judaism (Revelation 1:3) to emphasize the witness of Jesus to avoid getting the mark of the beast, if we read, understand (hear), and keep the things in its prophecy.

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of the prophecy, and keep the things that are written therein: for the time is at hand.  (Revelation 1:3 ASV)

1. Witness of Jesus and of His word
John was at Patmos because 'of the word of Jesus and the witness (testimony) of Jesus'. In Acts 1:8, the Disciples were commissioned as Apostles to go and be witnesses of Jesus in Jerusalem and to the world (Revelation 1:9). John witnessed the word of God as we also must, and he witnessed the witness of Jesus as we also must. Ask yourself, 'what was John witnessing about Jesus besides witnessing His word which is the word of God?' John must have been teaching us who Jesus is and what He represents in Judaism for justification (Galatians 2:16) and salvation (John 3:16). Angel of Jehovah stresses to Prophet Apostle John that the witness of Jesus is the spirit or the breath of the prophecy which he is giving to John.

NOTE THAT Angel of Jesus did not make God the Father the spirit of the prophecy of the bible (biblion) of Apocalypse (Revelation).

NOTE THAT Angel of Jehovah (Jesus) emphasizes the witness of Jesus as Jesus did in Acts 1:8 (Rev_1:2; Rev_1:9; Rev_6:9; Rev_11:7; Rev_12:11; Rev_12:17; Rev_15:5; Rev_19:10; Rev_20:4) as part of our necessary martyred (Revelation 12:11, 20:4) victory over the beast.

Revelation 1:2 ASV
who bare witness of the word of God, and of the testimony [witness] of Jesus Christ, even of all things that he saw.

Revelation 1:9 ASV
I John, your brother and partaker with you in the tribulation and kingdom and patience which are in Jesus, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God and the testimony [witness] of Jesus.

Revelation 12:11 ASV
And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.

2. Adore Jesus the Creator. We did not God the Father until Jesus came. We knew Jehovah as the Creator who incarnated as Jesus according to the writings of Apostle and Prophet of the Apocalypse John.

Jesus reveals the existence of God the Father to us and teaches us that God the Father is in charge of the plan of salvation and dictates to Jesus what He must speak to us to be saved. We know that Jesus is the Faithful Witness of God the Father and Jesus wants us to be as faithful witnessing Him as He is to God the Father (Acts 1:8, Revelation 19:10).

NOTE THAT Jesus did teach us how to pray to God the Father in His name but did not make God the Father the center of adoration because we must adore or worship Jesus to please the Father so that the Father let us approach Him through Jesus. Whatever we do to Jesus or for Jesus we do it to God the Father and for God the Father. That is the witness or the testimony of Jesus that He is just the Faithful Messenger of the Father.

We cannot worship God the Father directly because of the death sentence in the garden of Eden. Jesus had been Jehovah the Mediator since our fall (John 3:16). Our sin did not cut us off from His presence. Moses (Exodus 33:23), Isaiah (John 12:41) saw Jesus with their own eyes, but not His deadly face (Exodus 33:23). Contrast the seeing of Jehovah by Moses and Isaiah with the declarations of Jesus that God the Father had not been seen or heard (John 5:37) or known (John 17:25).

In Acts 4:12, we learn that Jesus is Jehovah God, the only known and named Savior there is and there was to the Jews. And Jehovah had been worshipped by all believers even the citizens of heaven (Hebrews 1). The worship of Jesus pitches us against the worship of Satan who also sought the worship of Jesus in Mathew 4:10 where Jesus reminded Satan that Satan used to worship Jesus, according to Hebrews 1.

The message of the three angels details salvation and death for every man on earth (Revelation 14:6-7). Worship Jesus and be marked on our foreheads to be saved or worship Satan and receive his mark to be damned.

Revelation 19:10 ASV
And I fell down before his feet to worship him. And he saith unto me, See thou do it not: I am a fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren that hold the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

3. Keep the commandments of Jesus (Matthew 7:21) to be saved not the commandments of men (Mark 7:7).
Keeping the commandments of Jesus is one of the strategies to overcome the beast, according to Angel of Jehovah to John (Revelation 12:17, 14:12). Satan goes after those of us who, like John, possess and keep ALL the commandments of Jesus NOT of men or of Satan (Mark 7:7), possess His belief (faith, trust) and His witness, to wage a successful war by which we win our salvation.

Revelation 3:8-10 ASV
(8)  I know thy works (behold, I have set before thee a door opened, which none can shut), that thou hast a little power, and didst keep my word, and didst not deny my name.
(9)  Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are Jews, and they are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
(10)  Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, that hour which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Revelation 12:17 ASV
And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and hold the testimony of Jesus: 

Revelation 14:12 ASV
(12) Here is the patience of the saints, they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

4. Do not adore or worship the beast and his image and get his mark.
Those who get the symbolic mark or seal of Jesus on their foreheads may not be hurt by any of the plagues (Revelation 7:2, 9:4). Therefore, the seal or mark of Jesus on our foreheads is the opposite of the symbolic seal or mark of Satan on his acolytes.

Remember the clues which Angel of Jesus (Jehovah) gave of what it takes to stand out and overcome in the battlefield against the beast to know how to spot the agents or warriors of the beast, even though they are disguised as warriors of light (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).

(Revelation 7:2 KJV) 
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

(Revelation 9:4 KJV) 
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Revelation 13:12 ASV
And he exerciseth all the authority of the first beast in his sight. And he maketh the earth and them that dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose death-stroke was healed.

Revelation 13:15 ASV
And it was given unto him to give breath to it, even to the image of the breast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as should not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Revelation 14:9-11 ASV
(9)  And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a great voice, If any man worshippeth the beast and his image, and receiveth a mark on his forehead, or upon his hand,
(10)  he also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is prepared unmixed in the cup of his anger; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
(11)  and the smoke of their torment goeth up for ever and ever; and they have no rest day and night, they that worship the beast and his image, and whoso receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 20:4 ASV
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and such as worshipped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Ellen G White on ordination as if she is Moses

NOBODY (even Ellen G White), AFTER MOSES, HAS THE AUTHORITY TO LEGISLATE OR ADVISE ON ORDINATION AND ON ANY OTHER RELIGIOUS DOCTRINE. OR TO ADD TO MOSES. Deuteronomy 4:2, 4:32, Matthew 5:17-18, Mark 7:7 makes anyone who would legislate or advise on biblical religious matters besides the Torah a disguised messenger of light of Satan, according to 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.

Every law, rule, statute, commandment, ordinance, et cetera, has been written on the rock of the Torah of Moses.

Any religious observance which is not in Moses is of Satan, according to Deuteronomy 4:2, 4:32.

WHAT AUTHORITY HAS ELLEN WHITE OR ANY OTHER SPIRITUAL LEADER ON WHAT IS WRITTEN IN MOSES AND THE PROPHETS, LIKE ORDINATION?

Moses already legislates on ordination in his TORAH. Period!
