Wanna to Know Why I Left
The Adventists Beliefs?
This document article may have lead you here because you end up want to know why Philip Pouliot have left the Adventists long ago. This kind document article was first written in 2012 and update again in 2016 by the old title name. That time, I've only wrote partly about the 27th Fundamental Beliefs and was able to find it online, until it wasn't any more. Today, this document is new as of update again. As of 2018, it had been 12 year since my testimony of this first shocking discovery I've learned, before I was invited to the Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) church in 2006. This first discovery was about the appointed time Shabbat (Sabbath). This was the beginning about it. When I met a man name Michael Peloquin who was visiting at the homeless shelter I once live there temporary, he was the guy who used to carry the Bible and meet people there. When I found out that he follow the appointed time Sabbath day (which is on Saturday) and worship the church which is where he had invited me to. I became a member of the SDA for almost 3 years.
If you are curious about the SDA belief or wondering why I left SDA, you will discovery number of reason why I left. One of the founders leader of the SDA who became the roll model of the Adventists and this 28th Fundamental Beliefs doctrine. Among other leaders who follow up with her were James Springer White, Ellen's husband, a retired sea captain Joseph Bates and John Nevins Andrews in the mid-19th century. Before I was baptize by the SDA, I was instructed whether I agree with the Adventists 27th fundamental beliefs after the Bible school. To understand and agree it before I confess my faith in believing these fundamental beliefs along with the name of Jesus Christ's name. To testify of my death to sin and have a newness life. I did confess that and was baptized in the lake. Over a year later, I started having a suspicion about Ellen G. White, because of how often the Adventists have been focusing on her words more than the Bible teaching. And I had troubling believing whether she may be a false prophet. One day, I decided to investigate to test her, to see whether she is a false prophet.
After examining more about the Seventh-day Adventists beliefs, along with Ellen G. White's books she had wrote and claimed she had communicate with the Messiah have failed the test. After first reviewing of the 27th Adventists fundamental beliefs back in 2009, I realized I made mistake to agrees with the 27th Adventists fundamental beliefs. Discovered that Ellen G. White have failed to be a prophet. Meaning, Adventists had been teaching people the message for many year turn out to be a cult. This all started by how William Miller's movement got Ellen fallen in to believe in him. Reader like you will find out why I no longer agree with the Adventists beliefs and why they aren't the only remnant people (church) of the Almighty ONE in heaven they claimed to be.
Base on Gift of Prophecy Fundamental Beliefs # 18, Adventists believes Ellen G. White is their prophet from the Creator ONE who made the heaven and earth. They also believe they are the identifying mark of the remnant YAH's (God) people. Adventists had mark this so-called from the two books in the Scriptures book. One is in the book of Joel chapter two, verses 28, 29 and in the book of Acts chapter two verses 14 and 21. They believe that Ellen G. White had this gift of prophecy, which was manifested in her life and work under by Almighty ONE message. As their identifying mark of the remnant YAH's church. They claimed by her of visions, writings and her miracles experience which came from HIS power.
Let start off about William Miller's movement, which Ellen was there at the time. When Miller made his first two announcement, he had failed about the Savior, the Messiah return to earth. Miller announcement was base on the 2300-day prophecy. He claimed to believe this 2300-day prophecy would end in the year 1943, but then other follow his example change for 1944. His failure had cause thousands and thousands people waiting long for HIM to return. Within many years before the form of the Adventists organization, follow by Ellen G. White movement and her supporters, why should people follow her while she still believe in Miller's movement which had failed twice? Few of Miller supporters and Ellen somehow had recalculated and maybe did the research the 2300-day prophecy book again. They believe Miller announcement did not fail but how Miller misunderstand the 2300-day prophecy. They explained that Miller though and felt that he had discovered the key verse for the Messiah returning to the sanctuary earth base on the book of Daniel chapter 8 and 9 with great earnestness at the time he discovered. They made a excuses reason based on Ellen's vision. She was still young at the time who had this vision of the Almighty ONE revealed her the correct information about the 2300-Day prophesy. Which indeed end in the year of 1844. Which was essential that there were two parties sanctuaries in heaven, not the earth. They believed that the Messiah had entered the most holy place for the first time in 1844 to fulfill the high-priestly type of "the cleansing of the sanctuary" (Lev. 16).
This whole idea about the 2300-Day prophesy they proclaimed is something I could not agree on. Here why, our savior, the Messiah had entered the Most Holy sanctuary the day he was raised up in heaven, the day he was left up to to the cloud and promise us that he will return on the last day. If Ellen fails to this first prophecy tests, she would consider already a false prophet. Here another reason why I had a doubt about her as a prophet. After the revelation book was written in time, I believe there is no more new prophet to deliver the message from heaven except the last two witness will appear in the last day some day.
Since Miller had ruined thousands of people life, Ellen is one of them who get into the mess to continue it. One thing I have learned in history about Ellen's claimed is about her visions of San Francisco and Oakland will becoming like Sodom and Gomorrah. She said that “the Lord would visit them and they would suffer under God judgments” according to September 1, 1902; Life Sketches of Ellen G. White: being a narrative of her experience to 1881 Page 412. What she said about San Francisco and Oakland in her vision never happened. Because San Francisco only was hit by the quake the most, while Oakland was not seriously damaged at all. The population in San Francisco was not totally destroyed like how she claimed Sodom and Gomorrah were all destroyed?
Here another false evidence of what Ellen had claimed about. She claimed about this great earthquake which mentioned in the Revelation book chapter six; verse 12. She point out this had occurred in the year 1755? She also claimed that year “… was the most terrible earthquake that has ever been recorded..." according to The Great Controversy, page 304. According to the data history I've discovered, the most terrible earthquake ever been recorded was actually less then 200 years before 1755. This was recorded in the cities of Shansi in China in 1556 of January 23. There are some recorded history of total death in high rate by the quake before 1755. Cities of Shansi in China was record death at 830,000 and the quake was about 8 magnitudes or more. The November first of 1755 quake in Lisbon was only 70,000 deaths? Ellen claimed about the great quake ever before which foretold in the revelation book, this book also mentioned about the sign of the darken sun and moon in the sky (chapter six; verses 12), how can be right if it did not occurred twenty-five years after 1755 quake in Lisbon? This Revelation chapter six; verse 12 actually talking about the very future end time, the last day when the Messiah return. That another test she failed.
What Ellen wrote in her Early Writings book page 64, she explained about the Mark of the Beast subject back in 1850 of June 27, how she warned people during her time saying "Get ready, get ready, get ready. Ye will have to die a greater death to the world than ye have ever yet died….now time is almost finished...and what we have been years learning, they will have to learn in a few months". This was about over 150 years ago she made that warning? All the people that Ellen had warned about are all sleeping in the grave and the Messiah haven't yet return? Her message was nonsense end time she speak of in a only few month? She failed this one as well!
There is one of Ellen testimony found in the book called Ellen G. White Critics, wrote by Francis D. Nichol chapter seven (The Astronomy Vision). What Francis had claimed in writings about Ellen White's odd testimonies of her vision of the inhabitants tall majestic people, unlike the inhabitants of earth living person on Jupiter or Saturn where sin has never entered there. This one may not be true what she claimed or even if Francis D. Nichol made up this vision against her? But the problem is, the Seventh-day Adventist members somehow do believe in this vision she had seen. The troubling here, no where in the scriptural books proclaim anything about the inhabitants tall majestic people anyway. I can't say whether she failed this one but I sure know that the Adventists have failed this. What was so importation to know or have this odd kind of message anyway.
Another odd testimonies about Ellen's miracles event. Adventists had also claimed that Ellen had hold this BIG family Bible which was size eighteen by eleven inches, four inches in thickness, and weighs a little over eighteen pounds. While she was having a vision, on her left arm, this Bible was lying open, and held it out at right angles with her body; and then for over half an hour, with her right hand, turned from to place, and pointed to different texts of Scripture, which she repeated while her eyes were looking upward, and in an opposite direction from the book. This information can be found in book The Great Second Advent Movement, page 236 and 237. This one sound like a show off and a trick of mind to fool people to believe in a miracle event that is unlike anything in the Bible?
Both of these odd testimonies people have claimed about her sound too good to be true. This remind me how the Messiah had warned people and Apostle that; “False Messiah and false prophets will arise and show signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect...” (Book of Mark chapter 13; verse 22). That exactly what Ellen have said and yet she did it too!
In the Advent Review and Sabbath Herald; 1905 May of 25th, it tell us about what Ellen had said to the people. She warned people not to fallen in other doctrines but only the Adventist teaching. She claimed that they will be led more astray from other false teaching of man. The problem here, she is right about how people are being lead astray from false teaching of man but she would be incorrect about only the Adventist teaching is to follow. The most troubling is this, why would she ever mentioned how to test a person who claimed to be a prophet, teacher or pastor. Whether they are speaking the truth of Almighty ONE message by the full working spirits? I've learned that the Messiah had taught us in the Bible how to test a prophet or teacher and see if they are speaking of the truth. And this is where and why I believe she had failed number of time and still warning people to follow up with the Adventist teaching?
Now, the point here why I knew Ellen couldn't be a prophet. According to the book of Galatians chapter one; verses one to 12 and Revelation chapter 22; verses 16 to 20, these passage message evidence why there is no other book or a new prophecy message deliver to us today. Scriptures had warned us not to add or delete any of the prophecy in the scriptural books. Notice how apostle John, the last prophet; foretell us about the last Revelation prophecy, he explained to us that if any person did add the prophecy of this book, which we already have. That person would get plagues. Guess what, it seem to me that Ellen in history had a real bad troubling health and even some of her family member too. There were record of history of ill she and some of her family were very sick many time. She had been suffering many health problems and how she end up die. If we compare Ellen White and any prophets or apostles long history health condition, we would noticed the different. Almighty ONE dwell in people HE had chosen do not have them suffer any plagues like she had.
There was one subject based on how the Adventist teaches before I finally decide to leave from them. I remember how Adventists had been teaching people that the Messiah was the Archangel Michael. After long research of this matter, I finally got the clear understanding why I knew they were incorrect about Archangel. Based on prophet Daniel's vision that identifies a man who was dressed in linen, with a belt of the finest gold around his waist and his body was like chrysolit etc… (Daniel 10:5-6) is not the archangel Michael (Daniel 10:13). I understood and see why this man Daniel first saw that came to Daniel in the vision. While HE was explaining to him what will happen in the future. Than another being appear to help Daniel who was Michael the Archangel. The one that spoken to Daniel is the WORD of YAH. We have to read carefully see what the book of Daniel chapter ten said. Many of us did not clearly notice this; who appear came to response Daniel in vision (verse 5-6) before verse 13 tell us about Michael one of the chief princes who came to help him? It was Almighty ONE who spoken to Daniel before Michael appear to him.
Last additional reason why I've decided to leave from SDA. A year before I was baptize, a new statement belief (number 11) was added in the 27th Fundamental Beliefs (2005). Number 11 was based on GROWING IN CHRIST, which explain Salvation transforms how we see our world. How it said that we no longer fear our pasts or future, but embrace a present full of hope, love, passion and praise as the Spirit lives in us etc... Telling us that we are set free from the burden of our past deeds. That we're no longer do we live in the darkness, fear of evil powers, ignorance, and meaninglessness of our former way of life etc... The problem here is how Adventists practice there own beliefs that I find is NOT the true light but the darkness they have fallen in the trick, to fool them to believe in what the minister or leader of the Adventists have taught them alone. I have learned a great deal of test from the Adventists road as why we the people should not practice the pagan holiday like Christmas, Easter, Thanksgivings or any honor famous names like Christopher Columbus day, John F. Kennedy or the memorial veteran day which is what they also follow up these pagan holiday instead of the true appointed time holiday like Passover, Festival of Unleavened Bread, Day of Trumpets or the Festival of Tabernacles.
Most of all, they believe the seventh, Sabbath day start at sunset Friday to Saturday sunset is the true covenant sign of the true seed remnant of people who kept this importation weekly appointed day. A identifying seal of YAH's people (Church) who follow and kept all the commandments laws which including the Sabbath based on Revelation 12:17, Genesis 17:9, Exodus 31:12-17 & Ezekiel 20:12-20. The problem here, I've discovered to learned that this Shabbat day appointed time dose NOT start at sunset to next day sunset at all. I've learned that the beginning of the 24 hour day start at dawn of the morning. You can learned more detail about this experience of my discovered at another document article called "When Does The Creation Day Begin?". Plus, I know there are some non-Adventists people who also kept the Sabbath law, so what make ONLY the Adventists to be the seed remnant of YAH's people? This is where and why I've learned so much to realized how foolish I was to join the Seventh-day Adventists. I did not want to put this mark of this false teaching in my head and handle my hand by the worldly way of what everyone else is doing as what the beast had been tricking and brainwash people for year.
The bottom line here, we should always recheck our self with the Bible to see whether a person or group of believers speak of the truth are true or not (2nd Timothy 3:16-17).
“All Scripture is YAH-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of YAH may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Not only the Bible to recheck for the truth, we also need to check in any historical books to find evidence and proof they said are true also. This is where and how I, Bro. Pouliot have done this and want to ensure people to do the same instead of relying on what man alone teach us.
Now you can exam me to see if I speak of this article the truth before you said AMEN
