To Adventists: Food
had chosen the Adventist church not because the church is the “remnant”,
not because the church has “spirit of prophecy”, not because of the books
of E.White. I had chosen it because the church keeps the commandments of God, teaches the
principle of sanctification which is the preparation for Kingdom of Heaven,
because Adventist people sincere await the Second coming.
However, as it was shown above
the remnant is not only
Adventist church, and even not any one of existing churches today. As a matter
a fact, the Remnant is not even a church at all. It is people who
keep commandments of God and believe in Jesus. They are the remnant because
they will appear after the Second coming (see
ch.16): please, read again Isa.4:2,3,
or Zeph.3:8,9,11-13. You see, Bible clear says that.
I do not believe that only
Adventist church has the Spirit of prophecy
either. I do not believe that E.White was the Spirit of Prophecy, as it spoken in "27 Fundamental SDA
Doctrines"(p.221): "So the expression the Spirit of prophecy can refer
to...the medium of prophecy itself"; and as many
Adventist preach: “Read your Bible and Spirit of prophecy”, “The Spirit
of prophecy said in “Great Controversy””….
Bible says that “The
Testimony of Jesus is Spirit of prophecy” (Rev.19:10). His Testimony is the
Gospel, the good news about His soon coming. John told that he was sent on
island Patmos for the testimony of Jesus (Rev.1:9,2.See also 1Cor.1:6,2:1;
Rev.6:9; 1 John 5:10,11). He was sent to there for the spreading of the Gospel,
not for some prophet. Bible does not say that the
Spirit belongs to any particular church. Any Christian of any denomination,
who faithfully awaiting for
His Coming has the Spirit of Prophecy. A person
can have the Spirit of Prophecy but can not be it. Bible says: "thy
brethren that have
the testimony of Jesus.
Testimony of Jesus is Spirit of prophecy"
(Rev.19:10). The Spirit is Gospel, that is why Ellen White can not be called the
Spirit of Prophecy. She had it, as all devoted Christians have, but she wasn't it.
Adventist sincere believe that only
Adventist church has its own prophet that is why the church is so unique. If in
Ellen White's time people in her church could argue was she a prophet or not,
today this kind of arguing accepted as an apostasy inside of the church.
" 27 SDA Doctrines" states: "the founders of the church
developed fundamental beliefs through study of the Bible; they did not
receive these doctrines through the visions of Ellen White" (p.227). So, is
that a coincidence that all the beliefs (all of them) are described in Ellen
White's books as her visions?
n.18 it is stated: "As the Lord's messenger, her writings are a continuing
and authoritative source of truth which provide for the church
comfort, guidance, instruction, and correction".
I always thought the authoritative source of truth in the true church
of God is the Bible, and only Bible provides instruction, and correction.
How can we be sure that E.White's works can be trusted as Bible? Bible says we
should "prove all things" (1Thes.5:21).
John said: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try
the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out
into the world" (1John 4:1).
If I will tell you that I'm the prophet
of God, how will you understand that is not true?
How will you understand that
the antichrist will be the false prophet?
Will you trust in his sincere words
also as you trust in E.White's words?
a sincerity can be the indicator of the truth?
How we can differ a true
prophet from a false one?
a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to
pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath
spoken it presumptuously"(Deu 18:22);
when this cometh to pass,... then shall they know that a prophet hath been among
them" (Ezek 33:33).
From the presented material you were able to see that Ellen White did not have
visions describing the Second coming of the Lord, because of uncounted
contradictions with the Bible. Thus, she did not see Satan on empty earth,
didn't see the investigated judgment, didn't see the mark of the beast, didn't
see first and second resurrection, didn't see New Jerusalem on the old earth and
ctr. However in the preface to "Great Controversy" there she
stated: "As the
Spirit of God has opened to my mind the great truth of his Word, and the scenes
of the past and the future, I have been bidden to make known to
others what has thus been revealed.."
sincerely believed, that, as to the prophet of God, all truth of
the Bible was opened to her, and who was disagreed with her in these
matters , was accused by her of spiritual blindness (2SM 112.1), thoughtlessness
(2SM 112.3), stepping away from the right paths (2SM112.4). She spoke, that
everyone, who considers, that he has other understanding of prophecies,
not as E.White taught, is not right, for God has not given him a new understanding, because the true
understanding already was given through her (2SM114.3). She sincerely
considered, that God has appointed her to judge, if a person is right or not in
his or her opinions: “I have uttered reproofs because the Lord has given me
words of reproof…for the Church” (The Remnant Church: Its Organization,
Authority, Unity, and Triumph,p.6). Therefore she bravely gave verdicts to those
who tried to prove that she was mistaken:
am commissioned of the Lord to say to you …The Lord does not lay upon you a burden to proclaim a message”
(2SM 115.1). “It is not the Lord’s will that this matter should be brought
before His people” (2SM 115.2).
the church's upper
echelon knows that E.White's works contain
many mistakes and contradictions. Many of them were deleted in following
editions of her books. Some works were not reprinted again because of
Many of her health advises "inspired by God" look even ridiculous in our time (that the
using of cosmetics leads to a premature death, that the wearing of wigs and hear
leads to horrible disease and death and ctr.).
encouraged those who accepted no writings or sayings
on bare faith, but checked whether or not they
are Scriptural: " These were more noble ..., in that they received the word
with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those
things were so »
(Acts 17:11). However, the church's leadership, even seeing the contradictions
with the Bible in E.White's works, still continues to teach, that all of her visions
(together with those contradictions) were received directly from God (?!).
even if we , or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel
to you than what we have preached to you, let him be
accursed" (Gal.1:9). "To
the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is
because there is no light in them" (Isa.8:20).
taught that Jesus entered Holy Holiest right after His ascension to heaven. Ellen White
taught that He did it 18 centuries later. Bible said that Satan will be placed in abyss
after the Second coming, E.White taught that he will stay on the earth. Apostles taught that every believer can be sure
in his salvation through his faith in Jesus, E.White taught that nobody can be
sure about it. Apostles taught that for salvation a person needs only
believe in Christ and love people. E.White taught that if person eats
unclean food and breaks the Sabbath that person can not be saved.
prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded
them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and
divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart" (
Jer.14:14, 23:16, 30-32).
saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit,
and have seen nothing!" (Ezek.13:3).
needs it, to cling to the false title "Remnant" and
all the time bend over backwards to
prove to all world, that we have own prophet?
to its "prophet" SDA church has received already 4 out of 5 points of a cult
organization. Hundreds of Seventh-day Adventist pastors and denomination
workers have left the Seventh-day Adventist church and many continue to leave
because of the unbiblical doctrines of the church. Instead of blaming and isolating those
people may be it is the time for the church to make a some order inside of itself.
it is the time to recognize, that Ellen
was just a
founder of the church, a honorable Christian, who all her life worked for
the boon of the church. Despite of her false predictions. Despite of the fact that many pages of her works were actually borrowed from other authors
and were submitted as her own
visions from God. She still sincerely believed, that she received visions from
According to researches of Dr. Molleurus Couperus, retired
physician and founding Editor of Spectrum magazine
the very serious trauma of the
temporal lobe of her brain, which she received in the age of 9 (as result: three
weeks in coma, many weeks in bed, nose deformities, an inability to breathe through her nose for
fruitless attempts to continue
recovering), was quite possible the reason of her
visions, which were nothing other, than sound and visual hallucinations
As a very religious person with a bright imagination, her hallucinations were
always religious and bright
given medical conclusion explains E.White's sincere belief in her prophetical
gift at its obvious absence.

belittle Ellen White's great works, which inspired many people to accept Jesus.
We just need to see
Bible above of her works always. She was not the prophet. Is that a tragedy? These church doctrines about the Spirit of
prophecy, the remnant haven't done anything good, but lead to
exclusiveness and pride of church members (another Latter Days Saints?). Some
people in the church are so proud to be Adventists, to be chosen people, that
they easy fall to this trap and forget, that to love your neighbor as yourself
is most important thing. And rest, such as vegetarian diets, prayers above the food, even the attending
the church on Saturdays are the secondary.
teachings were all centralized around the Sabbath. Jesus's teachings were all
centralized around Love.
White taught: " I saw the Holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall
between the true Israel of God and unbelievers" (Early Writings,p.85). So,
are all Christians of other denominations the unbelievers? We live on the
very edge of the present history of humankind. There is no time left to
demonstrate the others how we are differ from them (because of the day of
worship and our own "prophet") and draw people from another denominations to our church, it is time to
go to real unbelievers.
told that His church will be recognized not by the day of worship, but by love
"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another" (John 13:35). It is what the church
is lack of. Is that because the lack of love in the writings of the church
founder? The only book, which as many Adventists believe, is written by E.White
and teaches love is "Steps to
Christ", and that book wasn't even written by her (http://www.truthorfables.com/steps_to_christ.htm ).
I have received many letters from Adventists, who
without even taking a look at my work, proudly had poured out a bunch of dirt on
me only because I have told, that Е.White was wrong. Those people consider themselves as
"remnant", chosen people of God, when actually they demonstrate a
behavior of lost people. Bible says: "He that saith
he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now"
A church is not just a some business, it is God's house.
Everything must be clean before God in there. "Only
the truth can stand the tests of investigations". If
the church has wrong doctrines they have to be changed. Then
the church will be considered above traditions and will be considered as an unique
church, because it capable to recognize its mistakes.
until then Adventist
can not be considered as the true church of God.
