---Dr. Doukhan saw well that the blessings of Jacob, packed into their suitcases of posterity and future, the coming of the Messiah King.

---But there is some homework we need to do. The previous lesson compilor on the Book of Hebrews, was confused and confused the issues pertaining to Christ's First Coming and Second Coming and mixed the

statements of the Bible concerning them.

---The BRI members currently are writing things that were never taught in traditional Adventism of which Ellen White [traditional Adventist] is also part but not they.

---Why? Because that author of the Book of Hebrews lesson series previously studied at a Jesuit Catholic University in Mexico. He and his friends follow the ideas of C. Dodd who uses realized eschatology.

---Realized eschatology wants to park all last day events and kingship applications at the First Coming of Christ rather than the Second Coming.

---Did dr. Doukhan do the same? It is not clear. Maybe not.

---But just in case.

---Let us start with Ellen White in Patriarchs and Prophets 236. When is the application of Genesis 49:8-12 and Genesis 49:9 with the Lion symbol?

---Answer: Ellen White used the word "to whom all powers shall 'finally' bow amd all nations render homage". Finally. Thus the Second Coming.

---But confused scholars even in Adventism, wants to park information that Ellen White and Pioneers Correctly saw at the Second Coming, as at the First Coming just like Reformed Theologians and Catholics are doing.

---One should not put the chariot before the horse. It should be behind the horse. These scholars are misinterpreting the Old Testament statements for the First Coming rather than the Second Coming.

---"To Him shall be the obedience of the people" (Genesis 49:10) does not refer to the First Coming of Christ the Messiah, why? Because Isaiah said that He came to His own and they rejected Him. The First Coming is rejection and suffering. The Second Coming is rejection and gathering.

---King of Grace is the First Coming and King of Glory is the Second Coming. When the Door of Mercy closes, says the Book of Revelation, when Christ completes His Investigative Judgment since 1844, then

He receives the King of Glory phase, but not before then.

---The whole discussion on the throne of David that Christ sat on for the Book of Hebrews, was confusion. There is no throne of David that was 2424 to heaven!

---Christ and the Editor Holy Spirit with their foreknowledge of what will happen at the End Times, packed into David's poems and hymns and writings that which was applicable to Christ Himself.

---So in the New Testament, Christ just "unpacked the suitcase of Himself" that David wrote and scholars apply what is for Christ, to David! Chariot before the Horse case.

---Ellen White, says recent scholars [who want to use heretics to compose a 'new Adventist theology', using Ballenger, Waggoner [who wanted two wives and was disfellowshipped in 1906 but wrote Confessions in 1916 which these scholars are using], Fletcher 1930, Conradi, Ford [disfellowshipped at Glazier in 1980], they want to use their statements to tell us what "truth" is.

---"Everything has to be applied at the cross" they say, just like Reformed Theologians in other denominations and Catholic scholars are doing.

---We need to have eyes to see the inroads from Reformed Churches in Adventism. Their theology, their music [see Adventist youth of Korea], their thinking, and their rejection of Adventist truths from the Bible and Ellen White.

---It is the Last Days and the Last Generation Theology, so we need to pay attention to the Biblical Last Day Generation Theology and not reject it like Reformed Theologians are doing.

---God has a church and He gave Jacob the means of talking to his sons about prophecies of the future of Christ's work and their characters.

---We are part of that future. Our response is vital as we stay committed and not swing offroad.

---Even though scholars are talking to these "offroad" scholars in Adventism, they do not want to change, listen or adjust their messages back.

---They help create "Apostasy" which was predicted also by Christ.

---Thus, Ellen White, who's authority these offroads are rejecting, still have the correct understanding of the words of Jacob. So do we if we cherish these messages and abide by them.
