Origin and Foundation of the Seventh-day Adventism

In the midst of the 19th century, a group of believers lead by William Miller misunderstood  the prophecy of Daniel concerning the 2,300 days by establishing that it was a reference to the Second Coming of Christ.  This group climbed a mountain in the state of Washington dressed in white robes (it has been known that these robes were sold at $1,000 each in 1844 dollar value!) to expect the Lord among the clouds of the sky.

Miller, in his interpretation to such prophecy, wrongly concluded that Christ was to come on October 22, 1844.  Christ did not come the day they expected.  This event has been recorded in history as “The Great Disappointment” of 1844 for the Seventh-day Adventists.  Miller had already made the same miscalculations twice on regards to establish an exact date for the Second Coming of Christ.

On the positive side of this matter, we can conclude that Miller was kind of honest with himself when he publicly admitted his error, and abandoned the group—even when his followers asked him to stay.  But a young Methodist woman known as Ellen G. Harmon—later known as Ellen G. White—reaffirmed Miller’s position by establishing that Miller was not wrong in his calculation but in the details of the event: Christ was not coming to earth but moving to Holiest Place of the heavenly tabernacle.  She concluded that there was no such thing as a disappointment, and quickly she began to support the anti-biblical concept of an Investigative Judgment (read her book, First Writings—Prologue).

Ellen G. White became the ointment that healed the wound of 1844, and encourage this stunned group to reorganize themselves to become what is known as The Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1863.  Now, some pretend to say that because they were officially registered as an organized Church in 1863 they had no link with the “Disappointment” of 1844; however, the founders of that church were those disappointed in 1844.  One well known saying among Adventists is, “We can conclude from studying the prophecy of Daniel 8:14 that Christ moves from the Holy Place to the Holiest of holies in heaven, and the Seventh-day Adventist church is born on earth” pretending this way to establish to establish that the Seventh-day Adventist church is a prophetic church.

God wanted this servant of yours to become a temporary member of the Seventh-day Adventist church to allow me to have the inside knowledge of this organization.  I know them well; therefore I can speak about them.  Just as Paul became a doctor in law for Judaism, I have become an expert in the law by means of the concept of the law from the Seventh-day Adventist.

Paul, speaking of himself in Philippians 3:5 explained how his background knowledge allowed him to understand the law as well as the Pharisees.  In just the same manner, I was sent to participate as a member of the Seventh – day Adventist church to allow me understand in depth the concept of the law as taught by this ecclesiastical organization.  From there, I discovered that the Seventh-day church do not preach the Gospel.  As a result, I joined a group known as “El Despertar” (the Spanish translation for “The Awakening”), where I confirmed and increase my knowledge of the Gospel, which allowed me to have a balanced standpoint between the Law and the Gospel by God’s good will.  Some time later, the Spirit of my greater brother Jesus, came to me with His guidance.  I have become a teacher of Bible eschatology within the background of the Eternal Gospel.  This is the reason why I am well suited to analyze the doctrines of the Seventh-day Adventist, and I can speak with full understanding that the Seventh-day Adventist teachings are a subtle, dangerous and destructive theology that opposes the Gospel of Christ Why? because it pretends to supplant the year 31 A.D. with 1844 A.D.

Daniel and the Prophecy

It is a well known fact that the book of Daniel presents one of the most interesting prophecies in the Bible.  The prophecy spans from the days of the Babylonian Empire to the Second Coming of Christ.  This prophecy is divided by a set of periods of times to foretell the notable events that will have deep effects in man’s history.  Such effects will have repercussions not only for the world, but more in particular for the People of God.

This prophecy showcases a power (represented by the fourth beast of Daniel 7:7) that stealthily opposes God.  It is imperative for every true Christian to find out who is this power to be able to distinguish it schemes and be able to counter its harmful works.

It is my responsibility to warn the world—with the true knowledge God has brought through Daniel’s prophecy—to interfere with the devil’s pretension to use the Adventist church that was born on the “Disappointment” of 1844, for the Seventh-day Adventists are the ones responsible of pretending to separate us from the most important date ever upon the face of the earth 31 A.D.  There is no way to give biblical status to 1844 A.D. (as taught by the Seventh day Adventist doctrine) without displacing 31 A.D.  Paul the apostle clearly states that it was in 31 A.D. that Jesus opened the way to the Holiest of Holies.  In other words, what Paul speaks about on Hebrews chapter 9 and 10 is that the judgment of the righteous (that is, the believer) already took place in Christ, and that all we are waiting for is to finally receive the glorious verdict of not guilty at Jesus’ Second Coming.  Bottom line: 1844 leads us to fear and suffering; 31 AD leads us to enthusiasm and to the edification and strengthening of our faith so that we can joyfully wait for the return of Our Lord.  The original members of William Miller’s Seventh-day movement (known as “The Pioneers”) at first felt the joy of their glorious expectation, but they finally end up feeling the frustration of their failure which lead them to become bitter legalists that lost forever the joy of the salvation in Christ.  Ellen G. White became a zealous despot that set rigid codes for dressing, grooming! Even rules for underwear’s! Paul the apostle wrote on Colossians chapter 2:

“Therefore if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations—“Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” which all concern things which perish with the using—according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.” Colossians 2:20-23

If you read one of Ellen G. White’s books—as we have done so—you will see how hopes can fade away.  Let us read one of her quotes:

“At the time appointed for the judgment–the close of the 2300 days, in 1844–began the work of investigation and blotting out of sins. All who have ever taken upon themselves the name of Christ must pass its searching scrutiny. Both the living and the dead are to be judged “out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”

Sins that have not been repented of and forsaken will not be pardoned and blotted out of the books of record, but will stand to witness against the sinner in the day of God.”

(Chapter 28, Facing Life’s Records, The Great Controversy, page 486)

See clearly the way Ellen G. White acceptance of 1844 takes away all  hope from you and making of you a bitter, hesitant Christian with nothing to hope for.  However, the truth is that Christ paid for our sins.  If salvation depends of the believer’s repentance—of all his sins— no one will ever be saved because no man has ever reached an inward perfection.  The reality is that a sinful person has nothing more to do but to pray as the publican,

It is clearly, my dear brotherly reader, that you must be careful of this strange theology which, in principle, is Catholic and anti-biblical.  Pay attention to the following words of our Lord:  “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life (John 5:24).

It is not that you will be accepted or found approved in the investigative judgment—Damn that heresy!—but you are already being approved by the act of the Calvary at 31 AD.  You are already a saved person!  If you persevere till the end believing and trusting the Lord’s verdict of absolution He gave you in history, you will have no more fears and worries for now you have become a member of the People of God and you will acquire eternal life in the near future.  Hallelujah!

Some may say, why does this man constantly refute other religions?  My answer is :  I am the last chair God has sent to educate the people of God, and as I have already told you to , protect them from the heresy that pretends to become an obstacle to God’s purpose of mercy and salvation.  He granted to all men of good will.

Let me say this again: My Father who is in heaven has sent for you to have knowledge, to protect you from the flood of heresies that has made of today’s the modern Babylon worldwide.

The Prophecy of Daniel 8:14

According to the blatant interpretation of the Adventist church of the prophecy of Daniel 8:14, there is no connection to the context.  How can the pioneering Adventists conclude that verse 14 is speaking of purification of the Heavenly Sanctuary or of an Investigative Judgment?  The context intends to declare the length of time of the destructive work of the Abomination of Desolation, which is a figure of the Roman Pope.  Let us read:

“Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down

And a host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.

Daniel 8:8-12


Pay attention to this question of verse 13 which leads to the answer given on verse 14,

“Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?”

And the answer is:

“And he said unto me, unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed”

The word “sadaq” is commonly translated as “purified”, but the context clearly translates this word to “vindicated”. The context is not speaking of purification but the length of time of the vindication of the work of intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ or, what is the same, the continuous sacrifice, which Rome trampled down.  In Daniel chapter 8, the Bible’s Inspiration outlines the fact that the Roman Empire springs out from the Greek Empire.  The Roman Empire is represented by a small horn that grows towards the East or, to be specific, the Holy Land.  Which is the holy land?  No doubts about it, the Middle East.  History records the fulfillment of this prophecy:  Rome (symbolized by the small horn) conquered those territories of the Middle East.  This lead to another consequence:  The encounter of the Roman emperors with the Christians, who were killed by imperial decree at the Roman Circus.

Summing up, the Adventist interpretation of Daniel 8:14 is totally out of context.  This important topic will be continued on following articles on which we will continue to bring its correct interpretation. Stay in touch with the Prophet of the Final Days and the Voice of the Third Angel, for we are the only voice bringing the whole truth without restrictions.
