Greetings Brethren!

Welcome to The Shepherd’s Rod Speaks blogsite!

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord” to hear the plain facts and present truth about The Shepherd’s Rod Message directed to all Seventh-day Adventists, who, like the noble Berean’s, are willing to investigate for themselves and hear both sides of the story before passing judgment on what it teaches. This site only speaks for the original published message that was brought to the Seventh-day Adventist church by the late Victor T. Houteff from 1930 to 1954, and thus is not associated with a number of splinter groups and their teachings that have arisen since 1955.

I assume this is a site hosted by the Bashan Group being it states that it is the original and not one of the many “splinter groups”? If so let me know. I wonder why though that there are no posts? Thanks.

Dear friend in Christ,
Thank you for your post, we hope that more will be added as this site becomes more visible.
Assumptions can be misleading. We are not connected with the Bashan group or any other Davidian Association. In our extensive research over the years we have found that the various claims to be the “original” have amounted to nothing but a mirage without solid foundation in truth. We have scanned all of the original Rod literature published under the direction of Bro. Victor Houteff (1930 – 1954) located from several independent sources and have made them available on this blog and our sister website ( This work arose out of necessity since no other Rod publishing group is currently publishing the Rod literature in its exact original form (typesetting, size, artwork, etc.).
To our knowledge we have not been able to confirm that Bro. Houteff published most of the literature coming from the Bashan group over the years since his death in 1955 (Tracts Series A, B, and C; Tracts Nos. 16-19, etc.), so the claim that they are the “original” has been weighed in the balances and been found wanting.

I’m not particular of a name of a Davidian group, I don’t really believe that by the name of a particular group that would be the basis to be the “original”, as what mostly Davidian groups are claiming, to think as such is a deceit, and will be lead into falsehoods. For the only true Davidian are those who are following the truth as it advances.

Dear Edelyn:

Yes we agree, a true Davidian will be one who reads and studies the original Rod message for themselves and follows what it teaches to the letter, without resting on the arm of flesh or claiming to be from this group or that group, as if it grants them a special anointed status. Although many can claim to be the “original”, there is only one original message and many counterfeits as would be expected with the devil active in the midst seeking whom he may devour.

Dear Ruth:

Thank you for your request for original SRod tract literature. God willing we will get some sent your way soon.

To address your questions regarding the teachings coming from the Bashan group, we consider them to be heresy and a counterfeit of the original SRod message published from 1930 to 1954 by the late V. T. Houteff. Below is a website that we have established to address some of the many winds of doctrine that arise in Davidian circles. Regarding Bashan, they believe that the living Spirit of Prophecy is to be manifest in a living “porter” who “binds up the testimones” and tells people how to understand the message today. The trouble here is that people are drawn to the arm of flesh rather than trusting in a living God who directs through His two last day prophets. Below is a link to a study on the living SOP and the verse (Mic. 7:14) used by Bashan to claim we are in the bashan pasture today. Both will expose their teachings to be a contradiction to what is published in the original SRod message.

If you have any further question, please feel free to contact us anytime directly at the following email address:
