Dear Pastor Jan: May 2002
Greetings in the blessed name of our [Master] and Savior, [Yahushua the Anointed]. I have received and read your newsletters for many years. I have also passed out many of your National Sunday Law books. Undoubtedly they have helped many all around the world to see the significance of [Yahuwah]’s holy Sabbath and to turn from Satan’s false sabbath. But I can’t help wonder pastor Jan, whether all your good work will be overshadowed by the erroneous and misleading message that you promote in your newsletters. What will the judgment show?
In the latest issue [Mid May Y2K + 2] you stated that “I am sending this letter to many thousands of SDAs in 67 countries around the world.” That is a lot of souls to be accountable for if the message you are giving is wrong. Oh yes, you do expose many of the wicked things that are going on in front of and behind the scenes. You are faithful in giving the warning, but there is more to it than that.
Just like you, many years ago, another man was
faithfully warning the corporate, SDA church of his day. We read: “For seven
years a man continued to go up and down the streets of
This “woe, woe” man faithfully gave the warning for 7
years, and yet he was still slain in the end. Why? We have the answer in the
very next paragraph: “Not one Christian perished in the destruction of
You see pastor Jan, as faithful as this man was in giving the warning, undoubtedly he with all the others that refused to flee––refused to separate “had no fear that Jerusalem would be destroyed, for it was [Yahuwah]’s own city...To the last, multitudes held fast to the belief that the Most High would interpose for the defeat of their adversaries.” Ibid: 30,31. Even so today, pastor Jan, in nearly every one of your newsletters you make it a point to state that [Yahuwah]’s world-wide
SDA church will soon be purified and cleansed, so there’s no need to literally separate, to flee. [Yahuwah] is going to have a pure and holy church, but He is NOT going to cleanse the corporate, SDA denomination as you constantly state.
Any distinction you may make between the corporate denomination and [Yahuwah]’s true remnant church is very blurred, for haven’t you told us that you hold membership in several [3 or 4?] conference churches? And even though you may advise people to go to those churches that are “preaching the truth,” do the tithes from those churches support the cause of truth, or serve to further the apostasy? “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matt.6:21. Also, what about their literature and study helps such as the quarterlies? Aren’t they all tainted with the heretical doctrines of the 27 Fundamental Beliefs which every SDA must submit to in order to remain a member in good and regular standing? And it cannot be denied that in just about every issue of your newsletters a reader mentions going back to, joining, or attending the local SDA church because of your book, and never once have you advised against it. You simply encourage all to remain with “[Yahuwah]’s worldwide SDA church” because He’s going to prune and purify it.
Before we get back to get back to the cleansing of the church, because so little attention has been given to some small but exceedingly significant words, I must first let the dictionary define one of these words for us. The word is “from.” The dictionary defines it thusly” “from: prep. Indicating outward movement; indicating a point of departure.”
The reason I bring this up is because you refuse to follow or acknowledge the many plain and clear statements that tell us directly the opposite of what you are proclaiming. For example: “I then saw the third angel. Said my accompanying angel, "Fearful is his work. Awful is his mission. He is the angel that is to select the wheat from the tares, and seal, or bind, the wheat for the heavenly garner. These things should engross the whole mind, the whole attention." EW: 118. What things should engross the whole mind, the whole attention?––the selection or separation process, as we shall see. [More on this angel later.] [By the way, wheat from tares in not the same as chaff from wheat––that is what happens during the 2nd separation, the sifting process!]
You emphasize that [Yahuwah] is going to cleanse and purify the church, but here we are plainly told that the third angel is to “select the wheat FROM the tares!” The wheat is removed and the tares remain where they are! But according to your teaching [Yahuwah] is going to do just the opposite, cleanse the wickedness and sin and apostasy from around those who remain faithful––separate the tares from the wheat! Please, pastor Jan, please show me a “thus saith [Yahuwah]” for that. Please show me just one instance in the Bible or the Spirit of Prophecy where [Yahuwah] has told any individual or any group to remain in the midst of sin and apostasy and He would cleanse it, purify it from around them.
The Bible tells us [Yahuwah] always works the same way praise His name, because we know that we can count on that divine consistency. We can rely on His word and be assured that we are not subject to a fickle and changing [Eloah]. But now you are preaching that He is going to act in a totally opposite way than He has ever acted before. The Bible tells us that [Yahuwah] cannot lie. It tells us that He does not change. What message are you giving about [Yahuwah] then when you maintain the position you have taken? Ever since [Yahuwah] created the world He has worked on the same principle of literal separation––the light FROM the darkness, Abraham FROM Ur, Lot FROM Sodom, the sheep FROM the goats, the gold FROM the dross etc., and finally, the righteous FROM the wicked at the end of time.
In fact, directly contrary to what you, and others
like you, [the Standish’s, the Rosenvold’s, Laurence Nelson, Ralph Larsen, Ron
Spears, etc.] are preaching, we read: “There was a coming out, a decided
separation from the wicked, an escape for life. So it was in the days of Noah;
so with Lot; so with the disciples prior to the destruction of
Has [Yahuwah] changed His mind since He gave us this message through His messenger? From the time of Noah till the last days––now, we are told that not only will there be a coming out, a separation, but a decided and marked separation. The dictionary defines “decided” as thus: “de-cid-ed adj. Clearly marked, distinct, vigorous and determined.” And it defines “marked” thusly: “Marked adj. Noticeable.” [Leaving no doubt whatsoever!]
Pastor Jan, by influencing your readers to join with the corporate, SDA conference church, aren’t you in essence telling them to “come out of your apostasy into my apostasy––leave your Babylonian whore and come associate with my 8T:250 SDA harlot”? Can you give me any evidence that the corporate, SDA church has ceased to be a harlot? And how can anyone be associated with a defiled and defiling harlot and yet be one of the 144,000 who are “not defiled with women; for...These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth.”?
And speaking of following the Lamb, we read these
statements specifically concerning the SDA church: “But the glory of [Yahuwah]
had departed from
But going back to the 3rd angel that is to do the separating, let us let the words of inspiration clarify this issue for us as we read: “I was shown that the third angel, proclaiming the commandments of [Yahuwah] and the faith of [Yahushua], represents the people who receive this message and raise the voice of warning to the world..” 1T:76.
And again: “The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message, symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of [Yahuwah]'s Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with [Yahuwah], and had refused the light from Heaven.” 4SP:177.
And once more: “No one hears the voice of these angels, for they are a symbol to represent the people of [Yahuwah] who are working in harmony with the universe of heaven. Men and women, enlightened by the Spirit of [Yahuwah] and sanctified through the truth, proclaim the three messages in their order.” 2SM:387.
And what about the reapers? We read: “All the members of the church, as reapers in the great harvest field, are to be earnestly praying and diligently working. Not once should they think or speak of failure. They are not to rely on their human ability, but wholly on the divine agency.” ST:03/07/92
“We are not only to look upon the fields, be we are to reap, and gather fruits unto life eternal.” 3RH:327.
“And he will reveal his power through us, making us as sharp sickles in the harvest field.” 6RH: 02/14/99.
By the way pastor Jan, are you aware of these
statements regarding the wheat and the tares, in light of those that are saying
that we should beware lest we pull up the wheat with the tares because we
cannot tell them apart? [Yahuwah] tells us: “The tares closely resembled the
wheat while the blades were green; but when the field was white for the
harvest, the worthless weeds bore no likeness to the wheat that bowed under the
weight of its full, ripe heads. Sinners who make a pretension of piety mingle
for a time with the true followers of Christ, and the semblance of Christianity
is calculated to deceive many; but in the harvest of the world [at this very
time] there will be no likeness between good and evil. Then those who have
joined the church, but who have not joined Christ, will be manifest.”
“The world is leagued against the truth, because it does not desire to obey the truth. Shall I who perceive the truth close my eyes and heart to its saving power because the world chooses darkness rather than light? Shall I bind myself up with the bundles of tares because my neighbors refuse to be bound up with the wheat? MR.14:21.
“Every one will reveal the character of the bundle with which he is binding himself. The wheat is being bound up for the heavenly garner. The true people of [Yahuwah] are now bound up for the heavenly garner. The true people of [Yahuwah] are now pulling apart, and the tares are being bound in bundles ready to burn. Decided positions will be taken.” 1888 Messages:995.
“Christ requires personal faithfulness of his servants, and we are to show that we have no fellowship with the secret, hidden things of darkness. The wheat is not to sow itself among the tares;” 4RH:01/10/93.
“Those who have sought an excuse to avoid the cross
of separation from the world, will, with the world, be taken in the snare. They
mingled with the tares from choice. Like drew to like in transgression. It is a
fearful assimilation. Men choose to stand with the first rebel, who tempted
Adam and Eve in
Do you deny pastor Jan, that we are in the harvest
process right now [it is a process, not an event, just as the atonement is a
process rather than an event as the “New Theology” teaches]? If you do, then
you are denying the very urgency in your own newsletters, and furthermore, if
you read 2SM: 36, it states: “The things you have described as taking place in
Which connects us to another time indicator found in EW:261 which states: “I saw that [Yahuwah] has honest children among the nominal Adventists and the fallen churches, and before the plagues shall be poured out [today, “just before the close of probation”], ministers and people will be called out from these churches and will gladly receive the truth.” What else can explain the separation movement that is going on all around the world right now pastor Jan? Can you deny pastor Jan, in view of these inspired statements, that we are at the end of probationary time right now––the time of harvest, and that after probation closes the next event will be the falling of the plagues.? And yet you keep putting the cleansing of the church sometime in the future, when all around you the wheat is being separated FROM the tares, right now!
Another question pastor Jan. Please tell me which Spirit is it that compels an individual to separate from sin and apostasy and stand for unadulterated truth, righteousness and [Yahuwah]’s honor? And which spirit is it that beckons one to remain within, or go back into a denominational entity that is in an ever-increasing apostate and sinful condition––a church that claims to have the authority to change fundamental doctrines and beliefs, that upholds the Church Manual above the Bible, that patterns itself after the papacy, and that seeks to intertwine itself with the Sunday-keeping churches of Babylon? Can that possibly be the same spirit, pastor?
Pastor Jan, I’m sure you’re familiar with 5T:211 that tells us that the 7 last plagues are going to fall on the SDA church first. If the church is going to be purified and only the righteous remain, then why are ALL the “men, maidens and little children” going to be slain? How can you then insist that anyone remain within that 5T:211 church? Are you familiar with the statement that says: “The angel is to place a mark upon the forehead of all who are separated FROM sin and sinners, and the destroying angel will follow, to slay utterly both old and young.” 5T:505. Here we are clearly told that the sealing angel cannot place his mark upon any until they first separate from personal AND corporate sin––sin AND sinners.” Then the destroying angel follows to slay all the “Men, maidens, and little children” who have refused to separate––those who adamantly maintain that [Yahuwah] is going to separate the tares from the wheat, never mind that inspiration and fact tell us that the wheat always separates FROM the tares. [“Study the 9th chapter of Ezekiel. These words will be literally fulfilled.” 10MR:261.]
Pastor Jan, I would like to share this inspired statement with you that tells us what spirit is truly behind the idea that none should separate but should instead remain with the apostate, SDA organization. “I saw some who were not standing stiffly for present truth. Their knees were trembling, and their feet were sliding; because they were not firmly planted on the truth, and the covering of Almighty [Yahuwah] could not be drawn over them while they were thus trembling. Satan was trying his every art to hold them where they were, [within the apostate SDA church] until the sealing was past, and the covering drawn over [Yahuwah]'s people, and they left out, without a shelter from the burning wrath of [Yahuwah], in the seven last plagues. [Yahuwah] has begun to draw this covering over his people, and it will very soon be drawn over all who are to have a shelter in the day of slaughter. [Yahuwah] will work in power for his people; and Satan will be permitted to work also.” EW:44.
On the other hand we have the opposite statement that tells us what Spirit it is that is behind the call to separate, as we read: “I saw that [Yahuwah] had honest children among the nominal Adventists, and the fallen churches, and ministers and people will yet be called out from these churches, before the plagues shall be poured out, and they will gladly embrace the truth. Satan knows this, and before the loud cry of the third angel, raises an excitement in these religious bodies, that those who have rejected the truth may think [Yahuwah] is with them. He hopes to deceive the honest, and lead them to think that [Yahuwah] is still working for the churches. [“Don’t separate, this is [Yahuwah]’s church––stay with the ship, the ship is going through.”] But the light will shine, and every one of the honest ones will leave the fallen churches, and take their stand with the remnant.” EW:261.
My final question pastor Jan. Do you resolve, by [Yahuwah]’s grace, to henceforth faithfully bring your message into line with all of [Yahuwah]’s truth––or are you determined to be no more than just another “woe, woe” man? What will the record show?
With deepest concern for your soul and those who are influenced by you,
We have taken out from the original letter all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. Furthermore, we have restored in the Scriptures quoted the names of the Father and Son, as they were originally written by the inspired authors of the Bible. -WLC Team
