"I saw that Jones and
Waggoner had their counterparts in Joshua and Caleb as the children of Israel
stoned the spies with literal stones of sarcasm and ridicule!
I saw that you willfully reject what
you know to be truth, just because it was too humiliating to your dignity,
1 saw some of you in your tents mincing and making all manner of fun of
these two brethren!
I also saw that if you had accepted their message we would have
been in the kingdom in two years from that date (1888), but now we have to
go back into the wilderness and there stay forty years." GCB,
1892, May 7th.
THE 1888 MESSAGE WAS REJECTED
by Nyron Medina
A CONCEALMENT OF THE 1888 ISSUE EXPOSED
Friends, you do not
know the efforts that are being put forth by the leaders to make you think
that the church accepted the 1888 message. You do not examined the original
uninterferred, unprinted records as I have, thus
you don't really know the facts.
Many Spirit of
Prophecy statements have been kept hidden or are been unread with regards
to 1888. Dates have been perverted with the fear that the people might know
the facts should they read them. Don't be deceived my dear people, the men
in leading positions know that the message was rejected, but they are
consciously keeping this knowledge from you.
In Canada, and different parts of the world,
the leaders know that what the church now teaches is not what was presented
at the 1888 Minneapolis
meetings nor after. They are following General Conference policy and are
keeping you in the dark
For example, if in
the morning, it becomes official General Conference policy to proclaim that
the church rejected the message, you would suddenly see the ministers
teaching this. All this only shows that they are knowingly, like evil
shepherds, leading the flock astray to preserve their acceptance with the
Conference and to preserve their jobs.
In this tract I
shall honor the God of Truth by presenting to you some S.O.P.
quotations, proving clearly that the church through the actions of its
stubborn ministers, rejected the 1888 message.
In 1890, Sister
we want to have the simplicity of Christ. I know that he has a blessing for
us, he had it for us at the time of the General Conference here. But there
was no reception." E.G.W., Manuscript
So you see Mrs.
White said that there was no reception of the message. Here is
another quotation out of the many quotations that shows that the ministers
rejected the message and kept the people from it!
"Now I was
saying, what was the use of our assembling here together and for our
ministering brethren to come in if they are here only to shut out the
Spirit of God from our people?" E.G.W. Sermon
Conference Oct 24, 1888. M59
Did you see that?
At the Conference she prophesied that they would keep the message from the
The 1888 message
was called the "Loud Cry" by Mrs. White!
"The time of test
is just upon us, for the Loud Cry of the Third Angel has already begun in
the revelation of righteousness of Christ, the sin pardoning redeemer. This
is the beginning of the light of the Angel whose glory shall fill the whole
earth." RH-Nov. 2, 1892
By 1888 even onto
1892 the Loud Cry had begun.
Is the church now
preaching the Loud Cry? If so, how come the Sunday Law is not yet enforced?
How come the members are yet so worldly?
We know that the
church is presently in a lukewarm condition, so it is not preaching the
Loud Cry! So where then did the Loud Cry go? What happened to it? From
1888-1996 gives us 108 years, the Loud Cry would take a short time, so we
could not have been preaching it for all those years!
The message was
rejected, here is what Mrs. White says about this.
"The whole of
revelation 18 will be fulfilled in the glorious closing of this work. It
hasn't yet been fulfilled, and the light of the fourth Angel's message
began to shine in that strange and impressive way at Minneapolis. The only reasonable
conclusion is that the light was put out by human instrumentality's." E.G.W. Letter 106
Did you see that?
The light was PUT OUT, so the whole of Rev 18 could not be fulfilled, thus
the church rejected the message'
Here is another
startling statement from Ellen G. White:
"In 1888 at
the General Conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Angel of
Revelation 18:1 came down to do his work, and was ridiculed, criticized and
rejected. And when the message he brings again, swells into a loud cry, it
will be again be ridiculed, spoken against, and be rejected by the
majority." E.G. W. Taking up a Reproach
In this quotation
we clearly see that the message was rejected, and that it will be rejected
again, as is now happening.
Sister White says
that the majority will reject the message. Now let me give you an example
of the great deception that has been practiced over and over again in the
books about the history of 1888 that have been written by the leaders. Time
and time again, I have been called upon to explain certain claims in these
books, for these men have mixed up dates, juggled around phrases, and cut
off portions of valuable statements from the Spirit of Prophecy that proves
the church rejected the message.
illustration is seen in what was done to a letter written by a C. C. Mc
Reynolds, about the 1888 Conference. He was present at the Conference and
witnessed the whole event. The letter is placed together with one by W. C.
White (Ellen White's son) and A. T. Robinson in Appendix D of the book
"Through Crisis To Victory." Written by A. V. Olson '
(publish later under the title "Thirteen Crisis Years.").
Those three letters were placed there as testimonies that the church
accepted the message.
All three men were
present at the 1888 Conference, and their letters were used as proof that
the church accepted the message. The letters were not placed in the book by
Olson, for he died of a heart attack on a Friday evening as he was
completing the book. Perhaps this was retribution from God, for when his
book is read, if his source materials are referred to in their uninterfered state it would be seen that he saw clear
evidences for the rejection of the message but he deliberately hid the
facts and set out to deceive his readers. He was not deceived; he knew what
he was doing. The book is a body of deception.
The Ellen White
Estate publish the book and placed the letters in the Appendix. When the
letters are read in their original form, one is amazed at what they did to
White's letter and that of Mc Reynolds! The men in the estate consciously
twisted the facts and lied to the people to make them think that the church
accepted the message.
In his letter, A.
T. Robinson not only contradicts himself in his own letter, but he
contradicts the testimonies of both White and Mc. Reynolds when they are
read in their original forms. The letter of Robinson is completely produced
in Olson's book, but not those of White and Mc Reynolds. When White's
entire letter is studied in its original form it, would be seen that the
estate broke it up in paragraphs out of sequence with the original letter,
it would not then appear to prove that the message was accepted but that it
It is with Mc
Reynolds letter that the gross deception was practiced by the estate. The
letter has dots (...) showing that five portions were deleted. A sixth and
final portion was also removed, and there are no dots (...) showing that
this was done. When the letter is read from Olson's book, one would think
with the exception of the five deletions the letter is complete, but this
is not so, for a sixth portion has been deleted without any indication
whatsoever. Thus when one reads what was deleted, it would-be seen how
these leaders really know that the church rejected the message, but they
have been hiding this fact from the people.
I will quote some
of the six missing portions,the final quotation
will be the sixth missing read very carefully...
delegates came in from the last meeting of the day there was simple babble,
with much joking and laugher, and some very disgusting comments were made;
no spirit of solemnity prevailing. A few did not engage in the
Certainly this is
not people that accepted the message. You just read the second omission;
here is the third omission.
Waggoner had finished his eleven studies, the influence of which has in
quite a measure taken out of many the debating spirit .... However the
Some of the men
claimed at that meeting they "...have always believe in justification
by faith and preached it." But Mc Reynolds said in one of the
"That was true
in theory and with some of the older ministers, it was true that they knew
by experience what it is, but in many cases the theory was all they had,
and I know that some of our dear old brethren contend to this day that
there was no confusion and really no debate."
"Well, I was
there and was in the midst of it, both in the public meeting and in the
private quarters and I know the spirit of debate and controversy ran high
and some bitter feeling were developed, but the conference closed with a
dark shadow over many minds."
Did you read that?
How could they then claim that the church accepted the message? Now for the
In this one,
reference is made to confessions that were made by " most of the
leading men" during the next two or three years! This ploy is used
today by the ministers to prove that the church accepted the message, but
Mc Reynolds quotes from Elder Daniells book in
contrast to this! This is his quotation:
"How sad, how
deeply regrettable it is that this message of righteousness in Christ
should at the time Of its coming, have met with opposition on the part of
earnest, well-meaning men in the caus2 of
God." (Christ Our Righteousness)
Mc Reynolds was
showing that Daniells who was alive during the
1888 era knew the facts! But now, read the sixth omission in Mc Reynolds
letter, which was not indicated by the E.G.White
Estate! Here is the surprising quotation:
very much more might be added, but it is all made plain by many quotations
from message published in the booklet by Elder Daniells,
'Christ Our Righteousness' which I recommend all to read. I am sorry for anyone
"…who does not
recognize that there was opposition and rejection of the message that the
Lord sent to his people at that time. It is not too late yet to repent and
receive a great blessing." (C. C. Mc Reynolds, Lt. 1934 E. G. White
Did you see what
the estate was hiding from the people? The church did reject the message
and by 1931 when Mc Reynolds was writing that letter, the church still did
not have the message so he admonished the church to "repent and
receive a great blessing."
My dear people, do
you see how far these men would go to deceive you with regards to 1888?
Watch out, be careful, and don't allow yourselves to be deceived by lying
ministers. Mrs. White says that when the message returns, it will again be
Angel's message will not be comprehended, the light which will lighten the
earth with its glory will be called a false light by those who refuse to
walk in its advancing glory..." R.H.
27 May, 1890.
The warning of God
to church members is, not to allow yourselves to be deceived by lying
leaders who know the truth, but who consciously conceal the facts and twist
the evidences to keep the people in subjection to them. Members must be
open minded enough to consider the two sides of the issue and then choose
where they would stand.
May you make a good
choice on the basis of true evidences, in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
