       I was just now led to this item and so sharing with you. It is another contradiction between the authentic Spirit of Prophecy and the counterfeit.

First, the truth.

This is found in the Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.2, and we quote.

“From his childhood, Jesus conformed his life strictly to the Jewish laws.” 2SP,p.30

And a second….

“The parents of Jesus yearly visited Jerusalem, in accordance with the Jewish law. Their son, Jesus, then twelve years old, accompanied them.” 2SP,p.31

Here are the two times the following statement appears in the counterfeit SOP, which is of course, the lie.

“Christ passed through all the experiences of His childhood, youth, and manhood without the observance of ceremonial temple worship.” Mrs. E. G. White.

{BEcho, October 31, 1898 par. 7}

{RH, October 24, 1899 par. 11}


Every one must choose, believe and obey God and live, or, believe a lie and die.

  A quick reminder of our conference call scheduled for today at 1:00pm West Coast time. Details are posted below.
  Today we will be lecturing on Inspiration Defined – Part 2. This will cover a portion of the introduction to the 1919 Bible Conference, which was a secret, closed, meeting designed to alter forever the definition of inspiration, and tampering within the counterfeit SOP in 1979 and 1996.
  A recording of the lecture will be available shortly after the meeting ends. We also have a Q&A session after the lecture and the questions are not limited to the subject of the lecture.
  Feel free to join us at 1:00pm West Coast time for some good information and bring your questions.

(The following has been edited to include the time as I forgot to add that this morning)

Good News!

Beginning September 10, 2016 there is planned, in God’s providence, a conference call on the 2nd and 4th Sabbath of every month at 1:00pm West Coast time. We will be covering the many topics of the true Advent Seventh-day Keepers, or, as James called it some 135 years ago, Advent Sabbath Keepers.

Just this morning I was reading John 14:28 and came across the phrase, “for my Father is greater than I” and I had to go look it up. Off to the official SDA website and found this phrase as written, apparently by one Jo Ann Davidson, who writes this lie. “The three divine persons are equal but not identical.”

As Advent Seventh-day Keepers we want to be in harmony with the truth, not something taught by man. We are in the last days and I believe we are a few short months away from Sunday being made a test by the two-horned beast. It seems to me that Christ should come on the calendared Day of Atonement as he went into the Most Holy on that very day in October 22, 1844.

Come join us as we cover many important topics that have a direct bearing on the choices you make today.

Format will be a short presentation with a Q&A session following.

Here is what you need to join.

Call: 1-712-770-8031 (long distance charges may apply)

The conference code you will need to enter is: 861111

You will then be placed in the conference call.
Your line will be muted until the Q&A session.

A recording will be available shortly after the conference has ended.


To repeat the important information:

Who: art @ sopvindicated.org

What: A series of conference calls lecturing on the Advent Seventh-day Keepers faith, with a Q&A session.

When: On the 2nd and 4th Sabbath of each month at 1:00pm West Coast Time.

Where: Call: 1-712-770-8031 and enter this conference code: 861111

Why: To establish the true Advent faith, point out the real strait and narrow path we all must walk to be saved, and answer questions.

How: We are widely scattered; it is impossible for us to meet and fellowship as is our duty; God having provided the conference calling tool; we purpose to take advantage of it to help us all grow in faith in preparation for Christ’s coming.

On this site we prove the existence of the counterfeit SOP. When we take the time to give this point some serious thought we are forced by facts to certain conclusions.


1.) The very existence of a counterfeit proves the existence of the authentic, the real.

2.) The counterfeit seeks to take the place of the authentic.

3.) Evil intent is behind the counterfeit.

4.) There are people with evil intent behind the counterfeit because it will not come into existence on it’s own, people must create it.

5.) Because it has been 135 years since the counterfeit was begun, and, just over 100 years since it generally stopped, the original people involved in it’s creation are dead and buried. This means that those who promote the counterfeit as being of value, are more or less deceived, assuming that they are not of that small group who actually know the facts.


With this train of thought as a backdrop against which to observe people professing this faith today, we see that it must take time to educate and inform and we must needs be as gentle with them as God was with us in leading us in the right path, that strait and narrow way.



Some exposed to the existence of the counterfeit SOP will let it be known that they are fully confident in their reading and study to be able to discern any error that might be present. And it is exactly at this point that we want to focus for a moment.

The error that might be is present is actually hidden by the fog of darkness created by their own pride.


Three items immediately come to mind;

1.) Satan has one-hundred times greater power to deceive now than when he deceived the angels in Heaven. No.23,p.103

2.) “As we near the close of time, the human mind is more readily affected by Satan’s devices.” R&H, February 18, 1862

And, as if that were not enough….

3.) Laodiceans universally think that they arerich in spiritual discernment, when they are blind, poor, and wretched. They are doing the work of Satan, and thinking they have a zeal for God.” No.23,p.12

WOW! Good luck with that!, cause luck is all you can count on.


Many are the voices of warning for SDAs. But, it my opinion, any true warning is going to incorporate the following:

1.) The correct definition of inspiration—meaning that God, not Ellen, is the true author of the real Spirit of Prophecy and it speaks ONLY truth. No.26,p.11

2.) Total rejection of the gross errors of the counterfeit SOP for what it is—the lies of Satan.

3.) A true, not fake, love of Christ, manifested by keeping his words, John 14:22-24, by actions.

4.) A humble conformity to present truth, as defined by the pioneers that were in all three messages and firm in all the present truth.
The Present Truth, No.11,p.86

Sabbath ~ April 9, 2016


       In looking around at the world around us, there is much to distract as we see Satan’s agents struggling to incite war, racial strife, riot, bloodshed, death, destruction, &c. I say struggling because they are. Their goals they are not able to achieve. Reducing the population of the world in any way possible, is just not working.
World War III just is not happening.
The four angels are holding the four winds. Revelation 7:1
        God is in control. The four winds will be held untill Christ gets on the cloud to leave Heaven, headed for earth. EP261 (Early Publications, page 261)
        It must be a time of peace in order for the third angel to do his work. EP296 That work will end and probation will close.
       If the Loud Cry is coming as the Midnight Cry, EP413, it seems reasonable that it will go, or end, also, as the Midnight Cry; meaning, that when the third angel’s work is done, God will send everyone home. The burden for sinners will be lifted and mercy’s voice will fall silent. Life Incidents,p186
       Then it is that some will search for hearing God’s word, but they will not find it. Amos 8:11 Mankind’s probation will have closed… forever. Then there is an unknown period of time untill Christ takes his seat on the cloud to come to earth. EP261
       Then the four angels stop holding the four winds. Then it is that Satan has full control of the wicked. Then it is that people will turn on each other with satanic fury. A rage burning in their hearts, seen in their eyes, true terror stalks the land, brother against brother, sister against sister; all the while the seven last plagues will be falling and taking their toll; for that is their purpose, to destroy man off the earth. 1858GC,p200-201&1SP,p85 (1858 Great Controversy & Spirit of Prophecy, Vol.1)
       Then it is that Satan gets his way. His agents are delighted with the reduction of earth’s masses, but not with the very painful sores they bear in their bodies. Revelation 16:2 All this rage, hatred, bloodthirsty revenge, gets turned on the righteous. If they have any food, it is taken with violence. 1849 Broadside They flee. It does little good. They are followed, hunted, cornered, and mocked as the wicked prepare to slay them. 1858GC,p201-204
        Now is the time to prepare for that hour. Now it is peaceful. Now it is easy to trust in God, have faith, read God’s instructions, &c. And now it is the time of testing, this patient, waiting, watching, time. TNo.16,p96 Now we are tested by little annoyances, little things that irritate, like the drag of time passing with seemingly nothing happening.
       I look up at the stars, knowing this future that awaits, knowing that if time lasts longer I may go to my grave,… and see none of it; untill I get called from that grave, if I have been faithful. As I look at the stars, thinking these thoughts, I determine in my heart that I will set my face like a flint, I will be harder than adamant. Isaiah 50:7 & Ezekiel 3:9 I choose to trust in God’s word. I will PRAISE HIS NAME! when it hurts.
       And here comes that irritation. Again. But I know that every time I resist evil I get stronger for the next battle. God has revealed himself to me in my life a few times. He saved me physically from death at least twice. He saved me from a besetting sin I could not overcome and get the victory on my own. I know I am a sinner. I know I am a lost man if I allow pride to grow in my life. All I have to do is look back at my life, and I know, without God’s hand in my life I would be lost.
       I know that Christ is all in all for me. Without Christ I am not worthy to be a doormat in Heaven. My night cometh. I want to be found watching, faithfully. Then when Christ comes he will not say, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” Matthew 26:40 I know without Christ I am a lost man.
       I pray to the Father that he will increase my faith, help me to die to the world and it’s devices of distraction, spiritual weaknesses, the enchanted ground. He has given me a work to do. By so doing doubtless I will grow by God’s providence, spiritually.
       I heard the Robin’s evening song as even they sing God’s praise. Just a few days past I saw on the ground the feathers and the beak of a Robin that met it’s end.
       I know the end is near, it’s very near. We can trust in God, even in death and through the grave. We can… trust in God.

Today I want to promote again this petition.


Previously I only sent out some emails, but as Brendan Valiant has stated, in the text below (which is from the petition page), that this is something “which will put all questions at rest and provide full transparency.”
The following is the text as it appears on the petition page. It gives a complete explanation of the petition.

“In July, 2015, the Ellen G. White Estate released in a searchable, digital archive, the complete extant manuscripts and letters of Ellen White. These were based off of primary handwritten and typed manuscripts and letters that were produced over the course of Ellen White’s lifetime, up to 1915. This marked a huge step for honesty and transparency in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the White Estate are to be heartily thanked for providing this access.


“The released database contains some minor editing, including grammatical and spelling additions, but there are some specific places that it does not and cannot adequately reflect the original manuscripts and letters. The handwritten and typed manuscripts and letters also contain in some instances notations by Ellen White indicating corrections to be made when the manuscripts were to be published. Also, some manuscripts or stenographic reports of sermons contain notations to say that Ellen White had read and approved of the contents, while others do not contain such notations. For full transparency to be achieved and all questions to be fully satisfied, it is necessary that researchers have access to the original, scanned copies of all extant handwritten and typed letters and manuscripts so that the database may be verified.


“The White Estate have already released scanned copies of other documents in the White household, both incoming and outgoing (though there are still some outstanding from Willie White’s letterbooks). There is nothing to prevent the release of these items which will put all questions at rest and provide full transparency to God’s people who gain a greater understanding of the Blessed Hope from these writings.

We are only a small number away from having 200 signers. It would be great if we had 2000! If you have not signed, please consider doing so.
Also, it would be nice to read a comment you have left. A different viewpoint, another voice, all combined will increase the perceived desire of the people. Your voice counts!

In spite of what you or I may feel at any time, we have a God who made us, who, with the tender care of a loving parent, watches over us ensuring our safety. He never sleeps. He lives forever. Our hope rests in the things he says.


Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isaiah 46:3-4

    You want security?, right here it is. We can trust our God. Because he never changes we have true security. We found our hope in what he says because he never changes. Because of this we know that even if we die before he sends his Son the second time, we will live again!


It’s important to keep these things in mind as we go through our day. It’s a part of the armor we can use to keep Satan’s suggestions out of our minds. It keeps our faces shining with heaven’s light, the light of faith, hope, and trust in a living God!

On my part, I plan on gathering detailed data about the Naples Idaho area relative to existing parcels, size and location, zoning and land usage restrictions, and current ownership. The purpose is to discover two to four “ideal” locations that fit our needs for the establishment of the ASK Press.


In the beginning of any business it is very important to control costs. It is also very important in all that we do, to do it in a quality fashion. James states, I believe it is in the 1880 Life Sketches (mine is still packed in a box so this is from memory), “We have said it a hundred times that it is a discredit to S. D. Adventists to do a second class job at anything.”


In this neck of the woods there are many Mennonite believers. They have a reputation of doing excellent work. ASK believers (Advent Seventh-day Keepers) should do no less.


This applies to every part of the operation. Beginning with the planning, design, and all parts of the execution of that design. All should be done with God’s glory in mind.


Having been in the SDA church for fifty years, I have seen many schools, churches, miscellaneous buildings, &c., probably eighty percent of these exhibit the mindset that “God is coming soon, therefore we have no need to build in a quality fashion.” A small case in point. I remember walking the halls of one of the main buildings at Leoni Meadows in California, and the floor was soft, squishy, and squeaked. It was a terrible testimony from the builders.


Everything we do in this life is a preparation for eternity. Everything we do in this life is an expression of our then current character revealed in our acts. And that is why we need to do a first class job in all we do.

This is a short note to say that we will be setting up a mailing list. One of those all important items of advertizing. I think most people are rather to somewhat negative about advertizing and with good reason, however, advertizing is really just telling you about what we have. How that is done is where the problems come in.


So we do plan to advertize. To you. 😉 And let you know what we have to offer in the way of books.


Please send me your email that you would like to use for the purpose of getting our advertizing as we begin the establishment of the ASK Press.


(BTW, I rather like the ‘z’ instead of the ‘s’. Just so you know…)


Thank you!




Wednesday ~ December 2, 2015

Here are a few important passages about our subject. These are taken from Testimonies No. 1-11, a photocopy of one published ten years before James’ death, in 1871.


I will not be typing up every word, just enough to help you to find it.


“If we prove unfaithful in the management of what God lends us here, he will never give us the immortal inheritance. … Some who are aged are unwilling to make any settlement of their worldly business, and in an unexpected moment they sicken and die. Their children who have no interest in the truth, take the property. Satan has managed it as it suited him. … I saw the awful fact that Satan and his evil angels have had more to do with the management of the property of God’s professed people, than the Lord has. … And those who should be wise heirs of salvation almost willingly let their Lord’s money slip out of their hands into the enemy’s ranks. In this way they strengthen Satan’s kingdom, and seem to feel very easy about it.” No.5p.133-134


“The matters of the church should not be left in an unsettled condition. Steps should be taken to secure church property for the cause of God, that the work may not be retarded in its progress, and that the means which persons wish to dedicate to God’s cause, may not slip into the enemy’s ranks. I saw that God’s people should act wisely, and leave nothing undone on their part to place matter of the church in a secure state. Then after all is done that they can do, they should trust the Lord to overrule these things for them, that Satan take no advantage of God’s remnant people.” No.6p.149

“No name which we can take will be appropriate but that which expresses our faith, and marks us as a peculiar people. The name Seventh-day Adventist, is a standing rebuke to the Protestant world. Here is the line of distinction between the worshipers of God and those who worship the beast, and receive his mark. The great conflict is between the commandments of God and the requirements of the beast.” No.6p.168


That is enough for today. Earlier I chose the name Advent Sabbath-Keepers because that was what James’ used before the SDA name, and it is imperative that any such action avoid the names trademarked by the SDA corporation.


After some thought, the name Advent Seventh-day Keepers came to mind and I immediately bought a internet domain with that name. It is very close to what James used but it comes closer to God’s instruction to us, as stated above.


Many protestants believe they are keeping the Sabbath. The name Advent Seventh-day Keepers positively, unequivocally draws that “line of distinction” and in fact is a perfect fit to God’s instruction, in that it “expresses our faith, and marks us as a peculiar people” and it “is a standing rebuke to the Protestant world.”


It also keeps the acronym ASK, which I just happen to like. 😉


Going forward, I will be posting more often just not necessarily every day. I have a huge load of work to do to get into production of the books that are so important to the instruction of all.
