“Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.” Rom. 9:27.
None of the seven churches of Revelation was saved as a body. In fact, at the end of every letter the few faithful souls are addressed – “He that overcometh. . . .”

Laodicea, the seventh church period, means “a people adjudged,” or in a special sense the people of God living during the investigative judgment which began in 1844. Of this last church the prophet Zephaniah said, “I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, . . . and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame. . . .” Zeph. 3:18,19.

The Reform Movement is a part of the seventh, or Advent Movement, period – just as the Joshua/Caleb movement was a part of old Israel that came out of Egypt, though they were under a new leadership. The Reform Movement members are orthodox Seventh-day Adventists, certainly not on the Adventist Church’s records but more importantly in the spirit and truth of the threefold angel’s message. They are the true Adventists and the Remnant Church of Revelation 12:17. They heed the testimony of the True Witness, are going through the shaking, and are preparing for the latter rain. They are separate from the nominal Adventists in organization but do not form an eighth church.
