If we were not to be keeping the Saturday, wouldn’t Yahuwah have informed Ellen White of that fact?

Answer: I used to believe this too. But this is only an assumption based on our great love and trust for Ellen White. However, she gave a far different message. She never stated that either she or the S.D.A. church in her day had all the truth. You know she makes multiple statements to the contrary. To ignore her statements regarding not having all the truth, sets us up to ignore or turn a blind eye to any “new light” Yahuwah sends for this last generation.

Here is the evidence we do know:

There is no excuse for anyone in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed, and that all our expositions of Scripture are without an error. The fact that certain doctrines have been held as truth for many years by our people is not a proof that our ideas are infallible. Age will not make error into truth, and truth can afford to be fair. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation. Councils to Writers and Editors, p. 35

Early Advent Pioneers:

The impossibility of a Friday crucifixion on the Julian/Gregorian calendar, followed by Yahushua’s rest in the tomb on a Saturday, in A.D. 31, was a truth acknowledged by the early Adventist pioneers. This is not a “conspiracy theory” dreamed up by opposers of the truth. In fact William Miller himself originally believed that Yahushua was crucified in A.D. 33 instead of A.D. 31, simply because he was not able to harmonize Sunday (his Sabbath) of the Julian/Gregorian Calendar to Yahushua’s Resurrection. (See Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 4, by L.E. Froom, Review & Herald Publishing Association p. 478) Miller knew that the full moon for Nisan, in A.D. 31 fell on a Julian calendar Wednesday, and not on the Friday crucifixion, thus making it impossible for Him to have rested in the tomb on a Saturday, followed by a Sunday Resurrection.

This Creator’s luni-solar calendar acts as a bridge of prophetic time, connecting the past with the present on Yahuwah’s clock/calendar. He clocked in on 457 B.C., A.D. 31, A.D. 538, and on October 22, 1844. It appears that He will be clocking in again very soon. But what becomes very apparent is that the Creator’s calendation system continues to be the same yesterday, today and forever. In spite of multiple, man made wall calendars in use today, His has never changed. It is clearly different from all others; for through it and it alone, His divine appointed Feasts and Sabbaths have their fulfillment. In a vision of future last day events Sister White makes the following statement.

I saw that [Yahuwah] had children, who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They had not rejected the light on it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth [Hosea. 6:2, 3.] and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully. This enraged the church, and nominal Adventists, as they could not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time, [Yahuwah’s] chosen, all saw clearly that we had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us. Word to the Little Flock, p. 18

It is significant that Ellen White here refers to the remnant as proclaiming the Sabbath more fully. It is clear that Yahuwah, by this time, will have given additional light of truth on the subject of the Sabbath, because now it is seen that no one can refute or bring objections to this new and improved Sabbath truth.

Do Prophets make assumptions? Does Yahuwah still work with their assumptions?

Ellen White was shown by Yahuwah that “the seventh-day is the Sabbath,” but she was never shown by Him that “Saturday is the seventh-day.” It appears that an assumption was made by “all” in her day that the seventh-day was Saturday on the Roman Julian/Gregorian calendar, and Yahuwah did not correct them. After all it would have been truly the logical assumption, in light of the fact they were not aware that the Gregorian calendar was not the self same calendar as that of creation. For some, this may seem hard to believe, but is there precedence for this having ever taken place previously? Yes.

Does Yahuwah Ever Hold His Hand Over Truth?

We are told by Ellen White that Yahuwah held His hand over a few errors on William Miller’s prophetic chart because He had a purpose in doing so, and as a result many people experienced what is known as the Great Disappointment of 1844. However, many more since that time have been abundantly blessed by the truths that were brought to light.

Also, a few years later in the newly organized Seventh-day Adventist Church, an assumption had been made that they were to keep Sabbath from 6 P.M. Friday to 6 P.M. Saturday. After a period of time, perhaps even a couple years, there was divine intervention to reveal their error. Said the angel, “From even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath. Take the word of [Yahuwah], read it, understand, and ye cannot err. Read carefully and ye shall there find what even is, and when it is.” Ellen White inquired why it had been thus, that at this late day we must change the time of commencing the Sabbath. “Said the angel, ‘Ye shall understand, but not yet, not yet.’” (Testimonies, Vol.1, p. 116) Notice in the above passage that Ellen White never received confirmation that their new way of keeping Sabbath, from “sunset to sunset”, was indeed correct. In addition the angel ended the discussion with “Ye shall understand, but not yet, not yet”, which shows Yahuwah had a purpose in not revealing it to her at that time.

Perhaps our wise Heavenly Father has reserved this piece of the puzzle of “present truth” to fortify the remnant that they may gain the victory over Babylon, the beast and the dragon, and ultimately reject their mark.

Different periods in the history of the church have each been marked by the development of some special truth, adapted to the necessities of [Yahuwah’s] people at that time. Every new truth has made its way against hatred and opposition . . . [Yahuwah] gives a special truth for the people in an emergency. Who dare refuse to publish it? He commands His servants to present the last invitation of mercy to the world. They cannot remain silent, except at the peril of their souls. Christ’s ambassadors have nothing to do with the consequences. They must perform their duty and leave the results with [Yahuwah]. Great Controversy, p. 609

Pray earnestly that our Creator and Savior will open our eyes to His truth in these last hours of earth’s history. We have an awesome responsibility to be reconciled to Yahuwah and stand with the faithful in the light of His present truth. May we be willing to “follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth.” The Lamb is represented as moving and not standing idle. Our duty is to follow. Though at times it may appear impossible, He will make a way. Which will you choose? Whom will you serve?
