As I said in my below post, Malvo was at a 7th Day Adventist school when he met Mohammed. There is some discussion- or was at one time, amongst the 7th Day Adventists, as to whether Jesus was the Arch Angel Michael.
This from a U.K 7th Day Adventist web page; "8. We received a letter stating that a member of an SDA Church in the West Midlands told a Christian that Jesus is Michael the archangel. Is this an official teaching of the SDA Church today, or is it something that they once taught and have now abandoned, with just a few still hanging on to it?
I have to admit that this isn’t something that I have heard much about. However, having looked it up I can tell you that apparently the Church discussed this issue some forty years ago and concluded that the precise identification of Michael was not important enough to dwell on at length. (Questions on Doctrine, p.71). The reasoning behind identifying Jesus with Michael probably comes from 1 Thessalonians 4:16 where the voice of the archangel awakens the dead, and John 5:28 where Jesus said that He would arouse the dead.
The name Michael is always used in an apocalyptic context and I don’t think that identifying Michael with Christ in any way implies that the Lord Jesus is less than fully divine. He is co-eternal and co-equal with the Father. Seven times He referred to Himself in the fourth gospel as I AM, a clear indication that He is God and not just an angel. The very expression "arch-angel" implies someone over or above the angels."
7th Days believe in something called Investigative judgement- sort of a trial of you- to decide if you life in the hereafter. Apparently this whole investigative judgement began on Oct 22, 1844. The Snipers' last victim was shot Oct 22, 2002.
From an anti SDA page;
"Do Seventh-day Adventists teach Jesus is Michael the Archangel?
Yes, Seventh-day Adventists share this belief with Jehovah’s Witnesses. Adventists are very firm in their belief that Jesus is Michael the Archangel. They must take this position because this is what their prophetess, Ellen G. White taught. They also believe that Jesus is God. There is a glaring contradiction here. Hebrews 1:13-14 says that Jesus is not an angel."
So what does this mean? I have no idea. Perhaps nothing. I am not saying Malvo was a practicing SDA. I am saying he was going to an SDA school when Mohammed met him. Ibelieve that is significant. Also, keep in mind that the letters they left for the police are full of vague Jamaican references most probably from Malvo.
Malvo wrote the letters.
