OUR PIONEERS

  • “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the ONLY TRUE GOD, AND Jesus Christ, Whom Thou hast sent.” {John 17,3}

All menu items on this homepage compose as a mosaic the encyclopedia of the OLD TRUTH, in which Ellen White and the pioneers believed before it was trampled and replaced by proven falsifications (in small numbers). There are NO NEW “SUBSTITUTE TEACHINGS” on this homepage.

Are the claims that today’s faith in the Church is an “progress” in the knowledge of the “truth” correct?

  • “One thing it is certain is soon to be realized, the great apostasy, which is developing and increasing and waxing stronger, and will continue to do so until the Lord shall descend from heaven with a shout.” {Ellen White: Testimonies, Series B, No.7, p. 57 & NYI February 7, 1906, par. 1}
  • “But the Lord will raise up men of keen perception, who will give these truths their proper place in the plan of God.” {Ellen White: SpTB02 51.2}

Old Truth:

In addition to His heavenly Father, Jesus is also a Divine Being, and was not created. However, he has a beginning as the only born Son of God before the creation of the universe, and for this reason the Bible only calls the Father “the only true God”. The holy Spirit is not a third God of a nonexistent trinity, but an omnipresent, conscious and personal presence of God and Jesus, i.e. not just an unconscious force or dust. The word “person” just means that the holy Spirit is not an unconscious energy. The English word “person” does not just refer to a being, but has different meanings depending on the context.

  • “But to vs there is but ONE GOD, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom are all things, and we by Him. {1. Corinthians 8:6}
  • “We want the Holy Spirit, which is Jesus Christ.” {Ellen White: Letter 66, April 10, 1894, par. 18}
  • “The people come unprepared for the visitation of God’s Holy Spirit.” {Ellen White: 5T, p. 162}

76 Reasons in the Bible why the Trinity doesn’t exist

Ellen White wrote in the book “The Great Controversy” the clear fact that for all of eternity we will be ONLY with God the Father and His Son Jesus! In this eternity the Holy Spirit does not exist as a third Divine Being because it is only the Spirit of the Father and Son and represents Their literal and conscious presence in us!

  • „The glory of GOD and the LAMB floods the Holy City with unfading light. The redeemed walk in the sunless glory of perpetual day. “I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” Revelation 21:22. The people of God are privileged to hold open communion with the FATHER and the SON.” {Ellen White: Great Controversy, p. 676.3 + 4}
  • “And the passing years of eternity will bring them richer and more glorious revelations from GOD and CHRIST.” {Ellen White: The Great Controversy, p. 678.1}

A real truth always stays the same! The new “findings” that contradict the old truth do not come from God! A true development of knowledge only means expanding and deepening it, which is compatible with the facts already known (through the spirit of prophecy). God never contradicts himself!

The Trinity teaching attacks directly the FIRST COMMANDMENT and worship of only true God. This theologically accepted Trinity Doctrine in 1931 (before that only the relevant discussions were present) did not bring a “deeper understanding”, but a rotation by 180 degrees, and the return to the faith of the Babylonian churches, which we had resolved to leave in 1844!

Bible + Ellen White and the question of who or what is the Holy Spirit:

  • “But they passed through Phrygia and the Galatian countryside after they had been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the word in Asia; but when they came towards Mysia, they tried to travel to Bithynia, and the spirit of Jesus would not allow them.” {Acts 16, 6.7} German Bible Elberfelder 1905, Schlachter 1951, Hoffnung für Alle, interlinear translation
  • “This refers to the OMNIPRESENCE of the SPIRIT OD CHRIST, called the COMFORTER … There are many mysteries which I do not seek to understand or to explain; they are too high for me, and too high for you. On some of these points, SILENCE IS GOLDEN.“ {Ellen White: 14MR, June 11, 1891, p.179.2}
  • God and Christ alone know what the souls of men have cost.” {Ellen White: The Signs of the Times, January 13, 1909, par. 8th}
  • “The Father and the Son alone are to be exalted.” {Ellen White: The Youth’s Instructor, July 7, 1898, par. 2}

A mission discussion that Ellen White attended:

  • “Here, upon the train, we met a man of marked physical and mental powers, just returning from his missionary field in China. […] As we conversed with this gentleman, feelings of profound respect were aroused for the sacrifice he has made, and is still making. [..] But after catechizing us upon the trinity, and finding that we were not sound upon the subject of his triune god, he became earnest in denouncing unitarianism, which takes from Christ his divinity, and leaves him but a man. Here, as far as our views were concerned, he was combating a man of straw. We do not deny the divinity of Christ. [..] We believe him to be the divine person addressed by Jehovah in the words, ” Let us make man.” He was with the Father before the world was. [..] We have not as much sympathy with Unitarians that deny the divinity of Christ, as with Trinitarians who hold that the Son is the eternal Father, and talk so mistily about the three-one God. Give the Master all that divinity with which the holy Scriptures clothe him.“ {Review and Herald, June 6th, 1871, p. 196, Title: Western Tour}

Did Ellen White “understand” and “perceive” that the Trinity was “true” in 1898, or did the book “The Life of Jesus” have an addition that did not came from her from her? She has resolutely contradicted this claim that she had changed her form of belief:

  • “Those who try to bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary or concerning the personality of God or of Christ, are working as blind men.” {Ellen White: Manuscript Release 760, p. 9.10}
  • “Reject every phase of error, even though it be covered with a semblance of reality, which denies the personality of God or of Christ. Jesus Christ IS the SON of God.” {Ellen White: Manuscript 124, 1905}
  • “I assured them that the message she bears today is the same that she has borne during the sixty years of her public ministry.” {Ellen White: RH, July 26, 1906 par. 20}
  • “And now to all who have a desire for truth I would say: Do NOT give credence to unauthenticated reports as to what Sister White has done or said or WRITTEN.” {Ellen White: 5T 696.1}

She has written a sharp warning to the bearers of the apostasy, among whom A. G. Daniels and Prof. William Warren Prescott were particularly active and had by all means promoted the implementation of the Trinity Doctrine, and described their forgeries as the works of Satan:

  • Message after message has come to me from the Lord concerning the dangers surrounding you (A.G. Daniells) and Elder Prescott. I have seen that Satan would have been greatly pleased to see Elders Prescott and Daniells undertake the work of a general overhauling of our books that have done a good work in the field for years. But neither of you is called of God to that work. If you were to enter upon such a work, much time would be employed that should be given to the proclamation of the last warning message to an impenitent world……..I have been instructed that the Lord is not the author of the proposal to make many changes in books already published. If information regarding this sort of work, even as regards the few instances where revisions are needed, should become widespread, seeds of doubt would spring up in many minds. Satan would be busy at work implanting seeds of distrust and unbelief, and it would require much labor to remedy the evil that would be wrought.” {Ellen White, Lt 70, 1910, part 2+3+15}
  • “God desired that every move should be in accordance with Bible principles. There was to be no sharp dealing, and God has been displeased. For the last twenty years God has been sending reproofs and warnings regarding this. The very worst thing that could now be done would be for the Review and Herald office to be once more built up in Battle Creek. The way has been opened for it to break its association there, association with worldly men, which ought to be broken. Unjustifiable commercial business has been carried on, because the money that it brought in was needed…Pernicious matter has been published right in our office, and if some part of the work had to be delayed, it was the work on the books containing the light of truth. This was greatly displeasing to the Lord. The apprentices were being educated in the FALSE DOCTRINES contained in the matter brought in. And the Review and Herald presses were sending these false doctrines out to the world.“ {Ellen White: MS 20, 1903, April 3, par. 8}

The Pioneers and the Trinity:

George Knight, professor of Advent history at Andrews University, and one of the most prominent theologians and staunch Trinitarians in today’s GC circles, honestly described the following facts:

  • Most of the founders of Seventh-day Adventism would not be able to join the church today if they had to subscribe to the denomination’s Fundamental Beliefs. More specifically, most would not be able to agree to belief number 2, which deals with the doctrine of the TRINITY.” {George Knight: Ministry October 1993 p. 10}

Did the pioneers really believe that the holy spirit was a “god”? Does their rejection only concern the Catholic form of the Trinity? A related statement from one of the most important Adventist pioneers, whose name Andrews bears the largest Adventist university:

  • „The doctrine of the TRINITY which was established in the church by the council of Nice, A. D. 325. This doctrine destroys the PERSONALITY of GOD, and HIS SON Jesus Christ our Lord. The infamous, measures by which it was forced upon the church which appear upon the pages of ecclesiastical history might well cause every believer in that doctrine to blush.“ {J.N. ANDREWS: RH, March 6, 1855}

Much later, Ellen White clearly confirmed the OLD truth from the above quote, and called on Adventists to reprint the old books of the pioneers, which means that they should not accept the new garbage literature and books about the false god that are after 1898 had spread faster and faster:

  • “A LIAR is one that presents false theories and doctrines. He who DENIES the PERSONALITY of GOD and of HIS SON JESUS Christ is denying God and Christ. “If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son and in the Father.” If you continue to believe and obey the TRUTH you FIRST EMBRACED regarding the personality of the Father and the Son, you will be joined together with them in love. There will be seen that union for which Christ prayed just before His trial and crucifixion.” {Ellen White: Ms 23, February 8, 1906}
  • We are to repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work. They moved forward step by step under the influence of the Spirit of God. One by one these pioneers are passing away. The word given me is, let that which these men have written in the past be reproduced. And in The Signs of the Times let not the articles be long or the print fine. Do not try to crowd everything into one number of the paper. Let the print be good, and let earnest, living experiences be put into the paper.“ {Ellen White: RH, May 25, 1905, par. 2}

Why did William White fight the Trinity Doctrine in 1935 if it were true? Because God revealed to Ellen White that her son will not fall away from the truth:

  • “The statements and the arguments of some of our ministers in their effort to prove that the holy Spirit was an individual as are God, the father and Christ, the eternal Son, have perplexed me and sometimes they have made me sad.” {Letter from WILLIAM C. WHITE to HW Carr, April 30, 1935}
  • „It was also shown me that my son, W. C. White, should be my helper and counselor, and that the Lord would place on him the spirit of wisdom and of a sound mind. I was shown that the Lord would guide him, and that he would, NOT be LED AWAY, because he would recognize the leadings and guidance of the holy Spirit…“The Lord will be your instructor. You will meet with deceptive influences; they will come in many forms, in pantheism and other forms of infidelity; but follow where I shall guide you, sand you will be safe. I will put My Spirit upon your son, and will strengthen him to do his work. He has the grace of humility. The Lord has selected him to act an important part in His work. For this purpose was he born.“ {Ellen White: Selected Messages Book 1, pp. 54, 55}

Did Ellen White prophetically announce that the last people of God would abandon the old truth and accept the FALSE GOD (Trinity)?

  • “Thousands have a false conception of God and his attributes. They are as verily serving a false god as were the servants of Baal.” {Ellen White: RH, December 03, 1908, par. 2}
  • “I am charged to tell our people, that some do not realize, that the devil has device after device, and he carries them out in ways that they do not expect. Satan’s agencies will invent ways to make sinners out of saints. I tell you now, that when I am laid to rest, great changes will take place. I do not know when I shall be taken; and I desire to warn all against the devices of the devil. I want the people to know that I warned them fully before my death.” {Ellen White: Manuscript February 24, 1915}

Warning about the consequences of worshiping false gods:

  • “Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled.” {Ellen White: Letter 106, 1909}
  • “And to the others he said in mine hearing, Goe ye after him through the citie, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither haue ye pitie. Slay vtterly olde and yong; both maides, and litle children, and women: but come not neere any man vpon whom is the marke, and begin at my sanctuary: then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.” {Ezekiel 9,5.6}

The words of Ezekiel from chapter 9 herald the death penalty for worshiping a false god, which according to Ellen White refers directly and literally to the last people of God before the coming of Jesus!

According to the words of the prophet Ezekiel, who introduced the worship of a false God in the official Church of that time? The elders and the leaders of the sanctuary. Did the majority of the people then also accept the false God, and even then only a small number remained faithful to the true God?

Who seduces the official people of God to a false God in our day and age? Can a (not consciously) misled majority cast a correct vote? Does such a decision still have the authority of God?

  • „Yet we hear that the voice of the Conference is the voice of God. Every time I have heard this, I have thought that it was almost blasphemy. The voice of the Conference ought to be the voice of God, but it is not…“ {Ellen White, 16LtMs, Ms 37, 1901, par.18}

The Pharisees were also the most educated theologians of the time, and yet they led the nation to reject Jesus and His sacrifice. Their arguments, too, were, as in the present day, very logical and filled with the greatest authority, accompanied by the deepest knowledge of human theology, but essentially wrong.

A deepest study of theology does not automatically mean simultaneous knowledge of the truth, as today’s students often only get access to the “presented” details and the isolated or falsified quotations, which thereby carry a completely different meaning, accompanied by the established views and the authority of their professors.

  • “These men were constantly saying, “God is with us. We stand in the light. We have the truth.”  I inquired who these men were, and was told that they were ministers and leading men who had rejected the light themselves, and were unwilling that others should receive it.” {Ellen White: EW, p. 240.2}

The most stunned false claim is that the struggle for the old truth is actually a “new” “apostasy” with the “new” “apostasy teachings” with the simultaneous expansion that we would “teach” that Jesus was a “created” being. Jesus is a Divine Being! Only a Divine Being could pay the price of our sins!

Precisely because of this announced apostasy of the official theological leadership, which has gradually and thus inconspicuously seduced the people of God into the false God over the last 120 years, God had elevate individual people to fight for officially forbidden truth, so that they can prepare children of God for the coming of Jesus, fully filled with the Holy Spirit, and make those able to proclaim the message of the three angels to this world!

  • ”And when men standing in the position of leaders and teachers work under the power of spiritualistic ideas and sophistries, shall we keep silent, for fear of injuring their influence, while souls are being beguiled?” {Ellen White: ChL, p. 62.1}
  • “The Lord Jesus will always have a chosen people to serve Him. When the Jewish people rejected Christ, the Prince of life, He took from them the kingdom of God and gave it unto the Gentiles. God will continue to work on this principle with every branch of His work. When a church proves unfaithful to the word of the Lord, whatever their position may be, however high and sacred their calling, the Lord can no longer work with them. Others are then chosen to bear important responsibilities.“ {Ellen White: 14Ms, p.102, UL 131}
  • “But the Lord will raise up men of keen perception, who will give these truths their proper place in the plan of God.” {Ellen White: SpTB02 51.2}

What is the basis of today’s Trinity doctrine in the Adventist Church? The Bible and Ellen White or the teaching of Christianity that fell in the first centuries?

Has the Catholic Church, as the source of the doctrine of the Trinity, confirmed that this form of belief was only introduced 300 years after the apostles took effect?

  • “Seventh-day Adventists are in harmony with the great creedal statements of Christendom, including the Apostles’ Creed, Nicea (325), and the additional definition of faith concerning the holy Spirit as reached in Constantinople (381).“ {George W. Reid: A Brief Introduction to their Beliefs}
  • „The formulation ‘one God in three persons’ was not solidly established, certainly not fully assimilated into Christian life and its profession of faith, prior to the end of the 4th century. But it is precisely this formulation that has first claim to the title the Trinitarian dogma. Among the Apostolic Fathers, there had been nothing even remotely approaching such a mentality or perspective.” {New CATHOLIC Encyclopedia: Vol. 14, p. 299}
  • “The mystery of the Most holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the “hierarchy of the truths of faith. “ (DCG 43). “{Vatican Catechism 234}
  • “But the Protestant churches have themselves accepted such dogmas as the Trinity for which there is no such precise authority in the Gospels.” {Life Magazine: Oct. 30 1950, p. 51, Graham Greene, The Assumption of Mary}

It is a sad fact that Catholics openly label the non-Biblical teachings they bring, while those whom God has called to preach the truth instead defend this heresy. Instead of the message of the three angels and the warning about the two animals, they preach ecumenical “love” and tolerance instead of calling the people of God to come out of fallen Babylon! Apart from a few preachers, this preaching has not been preached for many years, while at the same time the message about the true God is resolutely opposed!

Each of us has an obligation before God to seek the complete truth ourselves through prayer, the Bible, and the Spirit of Prophecy, and to see whether we were led in the wrong direction after the death of Ellen White.

Many Adventists thinking that the majority could not be wrong, or that this question is unimportant, and that mentioning it would only cause conflict. If the prophet Elijah and the last 7000 faithful servants of God had also had such a view, they would have indirectly worshiped Baal just like the majority of the Israelites through their silence! The prophet Elijah resolutely stood up in the struggle for the truth, and through this the majority came back to the true God! Through this God showed us what our job is today.

It is our duty before our God to teach the whole truth to honest people so that they will have the opportunity to make a right decision before the time of grace is over. Of course, without arguments or senseless discussions, but through the perfect love that God gives His true servants.

  • “Againe, when a righteous man doth turne from his righteousnesse and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling blocke before him, he shall die: because thou hast not giuen him warning, he shall die in his sinne, and his righteousnesse which he hath done shal not be remembred: but his blood will I require at thine hand. Neuerthelesse if thou warne the righteous man, that the righteous sinne not, and he doth not sinne; he shall surely liue, because he is warned: also thou hast deliuered thy soule.” {Ezekiel 3:20, 21}

One way of preaching the truth is to recommend website www.first-commandment-or-trinity.com to others.

The Trinity directly breaks the First Commandment because it introduces an additional and false God! And the First Commandment clearly states that we can ONLY believe in the true God!

And without keeping all commandments, i.e. also the FIRST Commandment, we will lose our eternal life after the end of the time of grace! May God lead each of us to His full truth before it gets too late and give us the full fullness of His true Holy Spirit.

ELLEN WHITE: JEHOVAH, JEHOWA OR JAHVE?

It is very important question!

The name JEHOVAH and not Yahweh is used on this page because the prophetess of God Ellen White wrote Jehovah in all of the original quotations. Nobody today knows whether YHVH means Yahweh or Jehovah. That is why God made it clear through His prophetess that His name is Jehovah. In our circles, after the death of Ellen White, the true name of God was rejected and the name Yahweh was introduced.

Ellen White and the old pioneers:

  • Jehovah, the eternal, self-existent, uncreated One, Himself the Source and Sustainer of all, is alone entitled to supreme reverence and worship.” {Ellen White: Patriarchs and Prophets, 305} {7ABC 439.2} 
  • “As Jehovah, the supreme Ruler, God could not personally communicate with sinful men, but He so loved the world that He sent Jesus to our world as a revelation of Himself.” {Ellen White: 9MR, p. 122.3, 1903} 
  • “Those who trample upon God’s authority, and show open contempt to the law given in such grandeur at Sinai, virtually despise the Lawgiver, the great Jehovah.”{Ellen White: 3SG, p. 294, 1864} 
  • “The great Jehovah has proclaimed from His throne, “This is My beloved Son.” {Ellen White: DA p. 579.4} 
  • Jehovah is the name given to Christ.” {Ellen White: ST, 3. may, 1899, par 18} 
  • “Christ was not only the leader of the Hebrews in the wilderness—the Angel in whom was the name of Jehovah, and who, veiled in the cloudy pillar, went before the host—but it was He who gave the law to Israel.” {Ellen White: PP, p. 366.2, 1890}
  • “At the Saviour’s baptism, satan was among the witnesses. He saw the Father’s glory overshadowing His Son. He heard the voice of Jehovah testifying to the divinity of Jesus.” {Ellen White: DA, p. 116.2}
  • “As the divine Sufferer hung upon the cross, angels gathered about Him, and as they looked upon Him, and heard His cry, they asked, with intense emotion, “Will not the Lord Jehovah save Him?” {Ellen White: FLB 76.3} 
  • “We do not deny the divinity of Christ. [..] We believe him to be the divine person addressed by Jehovah in the words, ”Let us make man.” He was with the Father before the world was. [..] We have NOT as much sympathy with Unitarians that deny the divinity of Christ, as with TRINITARIANS who hold that the Son is the eternal Father, and talk so mistily about the three-one God. Give the Master all that divinity with which the Holy Scriptures clothe him.“ {Review and Herald, 6. June, 1871, p. 196, Titel: Western Tour}{http://docs.adventistarchives.org/docs/RH/RH18710606-V37-25__B.pdf}

Name Jahwe came in SDA at first after death of Ellen White!

JEHOVAH – = JHVH

W is not letter of Jewish! JHWH – Jehowah ist wrong. JHVH – Jehovah is correct

Nehemia Gordon: Jehovah oder Jahwe? Why is it one important question?

Spirit of Prophecy = Ellen White? Do We Really Need the Spirit of Prophecy?

Does it matter whether we accept the spirit of prophecy manifested through Ellen White’s prophetic assignment? In Revelation God announced that after the first apostolic church, just the last group before coming of Jesus is going to have spirit of prophecy.

  • “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make warre with the remnant of her seed, which keepe the Commaundements of God, and haue the testimony of Iesus Christ.” {Revelation 12:17}
  • “And I fell at his feete to worship him: And he said vnto me, See thou doe it not: I am thy fellow seruant, and of thy brethren, that haue the testimonie of Iesus, Worship God: for the testimony of Iesus, is the spirit of prophecie.”{Revelation 19:10}

Does exist some other church that keeps all Ten Commandments, inclusive the Sabbath, and at the same time possesses the spirit of prophecy? No. Many adventists reject Ellen White as a prophet of God and do not realise that by doing so they themselves are rejecting the protection and guidance of God to realise what is real truth.

Without the prophetic guidance to properly understand the Bible, innumerable directions could be taken in biblical interpretation. It is not coincidence that God has expressly announced that the last generation will receive support from the spirit of prophecy, because it is precisely they who are exposed to the strongest deception in the history of the 7 churches.

Without the writings of Ellen White, we would not know whether, for example, the story of Jesus about the bosom of Abraham proves the afterlife or is just a symbolic statement that has a completely different meaning.

  • “Saying with a loud voice, Feare God, and giue glory to Him, for the houre of His iudgement is come: and worshippe Him that made heauen and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. ”{Revelation 14: 7}

  • “Those who believe on Christ and obey His commandments are not under bondage to God’s law; for to those who believe and obey, His law is not a law of bondage, but of liberty. Every one who believes on Christ, every one who relies on the keeping power of a risen Saviour that has suffered the penalty pronounced upon the transgressor, every one who resists temptation and in the midst of evil copies the pattern given in the Christ-life, will through faith in the atoning sacrifice of Christ become a partaker of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. Every one who by faith obeys God’s commandments, will reach the condition of sinlessness in which Adam lived before his transgression.“ {Ellen White: The Signs of the Times – ST July 23, 1902, par. 14}
