Dear Reader,



Malicious lies are being circulated concerning me, even by my own daughter and her husband. They are adamant for remaining with the apostate SDA church and it appears that they are willing to say just about anything against me to discredit my ministry.


My daughter is telling folk that I was early influenced by a Shepherd’s Rod couple. I tell you before the Lord God Almighty, that I have never even personally met a Shepherd’s Rod person and that I have never been one whit influenced by any Shepherd’s Rod person!


The couple that early influenced me were Ethel and Eugene (Harvey) Sykes. They were removed from an SDA church in Michigan for teaching about the heresies of the church in the 1950’s. They never uttered the word Shepherd’s Rod. They taught much after the order of the late Fred T. Wright who was never associated with the Shepherd’s Rod, as many of his follows today can attest. The Sykes never mentioned Ezekiel 9. I discovered that by way of my own private studies.


Many have errantly deduced that just because I teach the following statements by Ellen White, that I have been influenced by the Shepherd’s Rod. That could not be further from the truth.


I have received a number of letters and e-mail charging me with being a Shepherd’s Rod just because I teach what Ellen White teaches on Ezekiel 9. I defy anyone to demonstrate that I teach what the Rod teaches. Rather, I have exposed their errors on my Website and on SDA Internet groups.


My first realization that Ezekiel 9 had another literal fulfillment was when I read Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211, many decades ago:


"Here we see that the (SDA) church-the Lord's sanctuary-was the first ("For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God. 1 Peter 4:17) to feel the stroke of the wrath of God. ("The wrath of God"=the 7 last plagues-Early Writings, 36, 52, 64, 289; Revelation 15:1, 7; 16:1.) The ancient men, those who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interest of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say: The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. ("He loves us so much, no matter what we do, we'll always be the apple of His eye.") Thus Peace and safety' is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob (the leadership) their sins. These dumb dogs that would not bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God. Men, maidens, and little children ALL perish together." (ALL excludes nobody-not one. ALL from the leadership to the cradle roll are slain!) Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211.


Then I searched out more of what Ellen White had to say on Ezekiel 9 and found the following statements by Ellen White:


Who is modern spiritual Israel in the Statements below?


"Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled yet the time is passing, and the people are asleep. They refuse to humble their souls and to be converted. Not a great while longer will the Lord bear with the people who have such great and important truths revealed to them, but who refuse to bring these truths into their individual experience. The time is short. God is calling will YOU hear? Will YOU receive His message? Will YOU be converted before it is too late? Soon, very soon, every case will be decided for eternity. Letter 106, 1909, pp. 2, 3, 5, 7. (To "The churches in Oakland and Berkeley, September 26, 1909.)" E. G. White Manuscript Releases Volume One, p. 260.


“The time will soon come when the prophecy of Ezekiel 9 will be fulfilled; that prophecy should be carefully studied, for it will be fulfilled to the very letter.”— Ellen G. White 1888 Materials, p. 1303.


The Signs of the Times, February 12, 1880:  “The desolation of Jerusalem stands as a solemn warning before the eyes of modern Israel.” 


“The desolation of Jerusalem in the days of Jeremiah is a solemn warning to modern Israel, that the counsels and admonitions given them through chosen instrumentalities cannot be disregarded with impunity.”  Prophets and Kings, 416.  


“In some cases, BEFORE the time specified in the decree, enemies will rush upon the waiting ones to put them to death.”  E.G. White, The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, p. 447. 


I asked the Lord to show me from Scripture that Ezekiel 9 would be literally fulfilled again. He pointed me to Ezekiel 5:9 and showed me that this verse, combined with Matthew 24:21, proves that Ezekiel 9 will have another literal fulfilment at the end-time, because that is when the worst thing that God ever permits to happen, occurs.  


It is a sad day when even one’s own offspring will betray them with grievous lies. But the Bible has warned us that a man’s enemies will be of his own household.


I was a member of Karl Wagner’s group SDAIssues for a number of years. Karl did an in-depth study of the Shepherd’s Rod. He asked permission to use some of my findings against them. Someone on his group charged me as being a Shepherd’s Rod person, and Karl told them I certainly was no Shepherd’s Rodman! A person I will call Gar, who was then a member of that same forum, who knows very well I am not a Shepherd’s Rod believer, is now on Adventist-fm forum repeating the lie of my daughter to him that I was early influenced by the Shepherd’s Rod. That is a total Satanic lie on the part of my daughter and anyone else who repeats it. Those who choose to misrepresent me in such a lying misrepresentation will not fare well in the judgment.


This person, Gar, has vacillated on my message nine times as of March 12, 2010. He solicited my daughter for lying information against me. I have told him privately that against my salvation, what my daughter has told him is completely false, yet he continues his diatribe against me and against the clear and clarion truth. Those who recognize truth should be able to see his deceptiveness by having received and then denounced the truth so many times.


Interestingly enough, Gar has a daughter who has rejected the truth and tells what he regards as abominable lies against him. Yet he is all too willing to believe such lies told to him personally by my daughter. I once sent Gar’s wife $400 for pain medication until she could get on MediCare, and this is the thanks I get! The Lord has surely shown me that Gar is going to have a lot of blood on his back in the judgment, as will my daughter and her husband. Such persons seem to think that they are doing God service by defending the apostate church and that any means justifies that end. They seem to believe that God will wink at their abominable lies.


My daughter and her husband don’t have a clue as to what I was taught in my early teen years by the Sykes. Neither did my immediate family, because they did not want me to listen to the Sykes because they knew they had been disfellowshipped from the church, so I told them nothing that I learned by spending many hours with them.


The Sykes had a separate building just for their books and were very well read. They knew the truth inside and out. I have always been grateful to the Lord for their early teaching and influence in my life. They said that the Lord showed them that one day I would do a great work for Him. I did not understand that at the time, but I did years later.


In Jesus,
