What a beautiful Sabbath Day!
May God Bless you as you study the truth.

I have just completed a brief study of the signage of the 1911 letter, alleged to be from Ellen G. White, in which evidence is presented to disprove the letter. You will have to read it for yourself and come to your own understanding.

Because of the amount of photocopies it is not yet available on this site, but soon it will be. Then you will have some tools to cope with the lies and disbelief of others.

I totally understand the shock many of you have come through or are going through. I know how it feels to leave the church of your nativity. I felt the sense of loss…. the tearing of the chords of attachment, affection, the breaking of the bands of love,…. I have been where you are now.

And here is what I have found.  Truth.  Pure truth.  Pure love.  Freedom.   Unity in truth.
There is this beautiful truth, all over glorious, all beautiful in it’s inter-connectivity, like a beautiful tapestry hung on display for all to see. Every time I look… I am captivated by the beauty, entranced with the peace of truth. I want to apply it to my life, I want to conform that I may know him, I want to drink deeper draughts of truth.

When I came home from work I found an email from this address,
(deleted)
which had come in at 9:53 am, I am posting a copy in it’s entirety for you to read.

************************
BEGIN:
> The 4 His People Ministry Board learned of some very disturbing information the week of July 15. This information has led us to believe that though the dreams appear to be of a supernatural source, we now believe that this source was of Satan.
>
> Along with the meetings being cancelled and no future meetings authorized by the board, please know that Ernie and Becky Knoll are suspended from any activity related to the 4 His People Ministry.
>
> Please cease contributing funds to this ministry.
>
> For those of you who read the testimony and/or received emails from someone going by the name of “Candace”, we were able to determine through tracking email IP information, that Ernie Knoll is “Candace”. When pressed, he admitted to this on July 21 at 2:43pm in a phone call to two ministry board members. We have also determined that the “Great Commission Counsel” is also Ernie Knoll.
>
> We urge everyone who has a “dream book” to throw it away, as we now understand that there are mind control elements in it.
>
> We sincerely apologize to all who have read and believed these messages. We pray that those whose lives have been affected, including those of us on this ministry team and our families, will find closure. Thankfully, we have a loving Savior in Jesus Christ who is willing to forgive all who come to Him with sincere repentance.
>
> While we have concerns about some of the arguments and statements made by those who openly opposed the dreams, we apologize to you specifically. We may at some time in the future ask that you consider the unscriptural positions taken, but it is clearly not appropriate at this time.
>
> Please know that all of us involved in this ministry, only ever wanted to serve in the cause of Christ, to win souls for the kingdom.
>
> It is our prayer that those who have returned to Jesus, as a result of these messages, will not cast Him aside. While we cannot trust in man’s opinions, we can trust Jesus. Always look to Jesus for light and strength. May He find us ready, when He returns.
>

If you or anyone you know has participated in this, I urge you to order your original books at once. Do not delay. We do not know how soon things will shut down in this country, but it will be soon. You may not be able to get your books later. Order now.

Here is the list of books you should get first.

Here is where you should order your books. (Notice that these books are N/A through the GCSDA church.)

Now, I do not know these people. I do not know who sent out the email. Nothing is verified at this time. I urge you to get the real SOP and start reading. Especially the 1858 GC. Truly the Holy Spirit works and teaches through the true SOP. You will not regret one dime spent on these books. As you read these books you will be drawn to Christ, the Holy Spirit will draw you to all heavenly things. Try it, just try it.

Many are searching for the truth. You have come to the fountain, drink deep and long my friend.

I have nothing for you to join, no membership, on .org, or any such thing. I point you to Christ, he is the way.

Be careful, we are living amid the perils of the last days.

Happy Sabbath!
God Bless you in your studies. May you embrace the truth with a hold that will never let go, no matter what.

I will address an issue that has been on my mind for some time. The ideas taught to me, as I was reared in the GCSDA church, regarding work and the Sabbath.

I received a great deal of help with my thinking on this subject by reading “The Present Truth” articles. In particular No. 2, which has much in it about the Sabbath and the keeping of it.

Many do violence to the 4th commandment in that it clearly states, “Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work,” yet, they cut it down to 5 days, and further more, some, usually GCSDA church offices, cut it down to 4 and ½ days. The excuse is often plead, “to get ready for the Sabbath.”

To me this looks like the same thing as capitalizing all the personal pronouns that refer to God, found in the writings of EGW, while at the same time choosing to reject all she wrote.

Let’s talk Copyright.

Here is the actual legal story.
“In most of the world, the default length of copyright is the life of the author plus either 50 or 70 years.”
You can check it out here.

The General Conference Seventh-Day Adventist Church Corporation has no copyright on any true writings of EGW.

They do have a copyright on the counterfeit EGW writings; for one simple reason, they created them.

The foisting and perpetuation of this fraud in one of the plainest examples of the perfidy of the GCSDACC.

You are totally free to use the true writings of EGW as you see fit. However, if I were you I would remember that God knows it all, and WILL bring every work into judgment. Don’t fall into the trap of Satan in thinking you can do some editing of your own. Just leave it alone.

The “Home” button above is now fixed, and will take you to our home page for this site. Every day I get to learn more and more. Someday I will be really good on WordPress.

In every facet of life people will make a great  profession, but, their acts are not in accord with the profession.

In spiritual things this is magnified 1,000 fold.

As we near the close of time, the human mind is more readily affected by Satan’s devices. p. 83, Para. 2, [7OT].

In this degenerate age, Satan holds control over mortals who depart from the right, and venture upon his ground. He exercises his power upon such in an alarming manner. p. 88, Para. 1, [7OT].

Satan will frequently appear as an angel of light, arrayed in the livery of Heaven; he will assume friendly airs, manifesting great sanctity of character and high regard for his victims, the souls he means to deceive and destroy. p. 177, Para. 2, [24OT].

The fact of a man’s professing to keep God’s holy law, and ministering in sacred things, and taking the advantage of the confidence his position gives him to indulge his base passions, should, of itself, be sufficient for a woman professing godliness, to see that, although his profession was as exalted as the heavens, any impure proposal coming from him was Satan disguised through the minister, as an angel of light. p. 151, Para. 2, [18OT].

Your own pastor may be, to you, as it were, an angel of light, but on Satan’s side. Any one who promotes error, wrong doctrine, or anything the Word or the Spirit of Prophecy condemns, is as Satan, disguised as an angel of light.

Perhaps this is the reason so many claim we must stay with the church, the church is going through to the end. All such comments just smack of “once saved, always saved.”

Beware.

Wow, does time fly!
Here it is the 11th already. Am I ready today? Now, right now. How is it with you? Are you ready for the immediate coming of Christ? Are we ready to live in Heaven? now? Or do you have something you want to do before he shows up?

How does it feel as you read these questions?

“Solemn are the scenes connected with the closing work of the atonement. Momentous are the interests therein involved. The Judgment is now passing in the sanctuary above. Forty years has this work been in progress. Soon– none know how soon–it will pass to the cases of the living. In the awful presence of God our lives are to come up in review. At this time above all others it behooves every soul to heed the Saviour’s admonition, “Watch and pray, for ye know not when the time is.” “Watch ye therefore, . . . lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.” p. 314, Para. 3, [4SP].

“If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief; and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” How perilous is the condition of those, who, growing weary of their watch, turn to the attractions of the world. While the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain, while the pleasure-lover is seeking indulgence, while the daughter of fashion is arranging her adornments,–it may be in that hour the Judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence, “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” p. 315, Para. 1, [4SP].

Every soul that has named the name of Christ has a case pending at the heavenly tribunal. It is court week with us, and the decision passed upon each case will be final. p. 315, Para. 2, [4SP].”

(4SP is Volume IV of the “Spirit of Prophecy the Great Controversy between Christ and Satan, from the Destruction of Jerusalem to the end of the Controversy.” aka the 1884 Great Controversy.)

In these words we have a true picture of the state of our lives. The judgment is going forth and we know not when our name will come before the judgment seat. When my name comes up may well be before my death. Thus my probation may close before I breath my last. I need to be prepared for Heaven now. “Now is the day of Salvation.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of my chief troubles in doing this research is I often get caught up in the reading of a portion and following leads; suddenly it’s very late and you don’t get the benefit.

I am working on that. The addition of WordPress has been a huge help in that it automates the organization process and makes it easy for you to continue to access valuable information.

So, to continue….
I placed a note on the comparisons page, just after Testimony No. 30 regarding further testimonies. Here I will elaborate just a bit more.

I do believe that EGW did write more after James death, but, apparently everything had to pass the hand of W. C. White before it could be “released.” That W. C. was a problem is easy to prove. That he commanded the ship after James death is also easy to prove.

Here it is:  [10MR38.02] p. 7, Para. 1, [1881MS].

The above reference is to a letter purported to be from EGW to W. C. shortly after James death, in which she claims to have had a dream in which she saw, the now dead, James and he counseled her as to what action to take regarding an upcoming event, which she carried out.

The event was a meeting and James told her not to go and she allegedly told W. C. that she would not go.

I know that EGW did not write the letter. It’s simple. It is totally out of harmony with the character of truth.

Here is what I guess happened, it is an educated guess.

I believe W. C. produced the letter as ‘proof’ of why EGW was not going to the meeting, to show to some of the elders. This would get him off the ‘hook’ about going to said meeting, because for some un-guessed at reason he, himself, did not want to go.

I do not believe EGW ever saw the letter. She may not have even known it existed.

Then, I guess, that the letter got laid down or put away, perhaps with the good intention to destroy it at a later date, life just got in the way of minor unfinished intentions, and death came to steal the opportunity. Another collected the papers and kept them in a vault for safekeeping, and one day they were all placed in a computer; the rest is, as they say, history.

The file is on the CD “Prepare Ye the Way,” source found on the “Acquire Your Original Books” page.

Just to be clear. No true prophet of God ever “talks to the dead” to have that dead person give them a message from God. Never.

But then, that is the true beauty of the truth. It is from God. Without a shadow of turning. Truth sets the standard. All else must bear the test of the Word.

God Bless you as you study the truth.

UPDATE NOTE: This letter is also on the White Estate Research 2008 Edition CD.

Here is the reference: Letter 17, 1881, pp. 2-4. (To W. C. White, September 12, 1881.) White Estate Washington, D. C. March 25, 1980  {10MR 40.1}
