The theological crisis facing the Seventh-day Adventist church is widening to an ever increasing chasm as honest seekers for truth begin to discover that many Adventist doctrines once held as pillars of the faith are seen to be at variance with the Holy Bible. Two glaring examples involve the teaching in Daniel chapter eight concerning the “daily” (vs. 12, 13) and the transgression of desolation (v. 13) also referred to as “the abomination that maketh desolate” found in Dan. 11:31, 12:11 and Matt. 24:15. Confusion abounds as the theologians at the Biblical Research Institute and the Adventist Seminaries cannot seem to agree with each other on these topics whereas various independent ministries try to push private theories to justify their erroneous conclusion that the Seventh-day Adventist church has become Babylon.
If ever there was a time for inspired interpretation of this chapter of prophecy it is now. Fortunately, by the grace and mercy of God, a completely thorough, logical, and irrefutable explanation of these important topics was introduced into the church in 1932 in the book entitled The Shepherd’s Rod, Vol. 2 published by Victor T. Houteff. Honest seekers of truth have been immeasurably blessed after the earnest study of this information from that day to the present. Now, an invitation is extended to every Seventh-day Adventist to come hear what the Rod has to say and experience the joy of having the clouds of darkness wisked away from your hearts and minds forevermore.
