The Last Countdown

Originally published on Wednesday, December 26, 2012, 8:57 pm in German at

Anyone who knew the early versions of the Orion study and the articles will know who the man was that was chosen by God, and for several years had the gift of the Spirit of Prophecy and thus fulfilled a part of the prophecy of Joel 2:28, which is repeated in Acts 2:17: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:"

The daughter of God, Ellen G. White, for the beginning of the judgment of the dead and far into the wilderness wanderings of the Advent people after 1890, had received visions from God; Now—for the end of the judgment of the dead—it was to be a son of God who was to receive dreams from God: An elder, Ernie Knoll, was chosen from an insignificant town in northeastern California by God to foresee the light of the fourth angel, dreaming of all that would happen just a little while after the beginning of his ministry.

The Role of the Spirit of Prophecy

As we have already seen in the first part of this introductory series in the new section, The Gift of Prophecy, the spirit of prophecy for a specific reason never comes alone. It's worth underlining again the importance of what Ellen G. White saw as her gift's relationship to the church work:

Again and again these brethren came together to study the Bible, in order that they might know its meaning, and be prepared to teach it with power. When they came to the point in their study where they said, “We can do nothing more,” the Spirit of the Lord would come upon me, I would be taken off in vision, and a clear explanation of the passages we had been studying would be given me, with instruction as to how we were to labor and teach effectively. Thus light was given that helped us to understand the scriptures in regard to Christ, His mission, and His priesthood. A line of truth extending from that time to the time when we shall enter the city of God, was made plain to me, and I gave to others the instruction that the Lord had given me. {1SM 206.4}

To sum up what we just read:

  1. Members of the church study the Word of God and at certain points get confirmation and guidance in their studies through the spirit of prophecy.
  2. The church leadership receives direct instructions from God regarding how to progress with their teaching and evangelistic mission.

In the same way it worked with Ellen G. White as a type, so it should work with Ernie Knoll's gift.

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? (1 Corinthians 12:27-30)

Just as the apostle Paul said, the gifts are distributed to different people. One has the gift of prophecy and another the gift of interpretation, or teaching. Thus, while the gift of prophecy is indeed inextricably linked with the gift of interpretation, it is manifested not in a single individual but within the body of the church.

But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. (1 Corinthians 14:28)

Even the gift of interpretation is a gift from God, and is particularly mentioned in connection with dreams in the Bible:

And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you. (Genesis 40:8)

The great interpreters in the Bible are Jacob's son Joseph during the hard times of famine and the removal of Israel into Egypt, and Daniel, the judgment prophet who not only interpreted the dream of Nebuchadnezzar, but was also told by God what the dream was that He had given to the ruler. Both men were great leaders of the church in times of distress and captivity in enemy territory, even attaining to second in command to the rulers of those same heathen nations. Only in Daniel was the gift of interpretation and prophecy combined, but Daniel did not interpret his own dreams and visions, only the king's dream.

These relationships need to be perfectly understood before you dare to question the dreams of Ernie Knoll, because Ernie Knoll is a very special prophet and is highly controversial for a reason. Unfortunately, the Seventh-day Adventist Church chooses not to believe this man from California for all the wrong reasons. More on that later.

Ernie Knoll was told very early in his dreams the premise for not being the interpreter of his own dreams...

I [Ernie Knoll] tell him [the Herold = the angel Gabriel] that I do not understand what he is trying to tell me or us. I state that I feel I am not appropriate for the task that has been given me—that there are others who are better suited for this. Smiling again the angel explains, “Because you do not understand, you know. If you were to know, you would not understand.... {Watch, as I AM Coming!}

In the above quotation of this dream from August 2007, Gabriel made it perfectly clear to Ernie Knoll that he does not have the gift of understanding or interpretation, to know what his dreams mean. That was reserved for another man. In the study of dreams, we should never lose sight of the fact that this principle was given once and for all by the heavenly messenger, because much later Ernie Knoll obtained dreams from other sources that contradicted this rule.

Two Men, Two Ministries

In early 2005, two men were called by God to carry together the light of the fourth angel to the world. One was to study like the Adventist pioneers that needed divine confirmation and the other was to receive the confirmation of the studies through dreams. One was John Scotram, who relocated from Mallorca, Spain, to Paraguay on God's instruction and received his first Bible study about the man with the measuring reed that indicated the year 2012, and the other was the Seventh-day Adventist elder Ernie Knoll, whose dream ministry began in the spring of that same year.

Neither man knew of the other beforehand. As for me, I met Ernie Knoll in 2007 and then in 2008 I really started to study the dreams intensively to discover the incredible messages of God in them, which would later give me the courage and the strength to publish the Orion study in 2010.

Just as Satan wanted a bridge from the European papacy, the first beast of Revelation 13, to the American superpower, the second beast who reaches across the great abyss, so God wanted to set up the ministries of Ernie Knoll and John Scotram as a bulwark against the machinations of the enemy of souls to lead the last great battle to victory. As the throne of Satan is borne by two men from two particular countries, the German Pope Benedict XVI and the U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, so God also chose two men from these countries in order to confirm his throne before the universe: John Scotram the German, and the U.S. American Ernie Knoll. Where the apostasy of the Adventist Church had reached the highest degree is where the men were called from to rebuke the transgressions of their countrymen and brothers in their mother language.

That is how one day the first beast of Revelation would unite with the second...

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Revelation 13:11-12) should the two ministries unite at the time appointed by God...

Angels were sent to aid the mighty angel from heaven, and I heard voices which seemed to sound everywhere, “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” This message seemed to be an addition to the third message, joining it as the midnight cry joined the second angel’s message in 1844. The glory of God rested upon the patient, waiting saints, and they fearlessly gave the last solemn warning, proclaiming the fall of Babylon and calling upon God’s people to come out of her that they might escape her fearful doom. {EW 277.2}

God had a great plan for the two ministries. And the man who had the “understanding” realized early on what was really behind many dream passages, namely the wonderful confirmation of the Orion Message and the Vessel of Time of the LastCountdown Ministry, which we now call the “Movement of the Fourth Angel.”

To avoid making this article too long, I will focus primarily on the basics that are necessary to understand the criminal case of cosmic proportions which revolves around Ernie Knoll—because God's plan for the Prophet did not work. Ernie Knoll would fall, unfortunately, and not just once but twice! The first time, God would still pull him out of the muddy water, but the second time he would be run over by Satan and his “black truck” and would die a spiritual death forever.

The First Ministry of the Prophet

In this new section, entire dream confirmations and correct interpretations of many dream passages heretofore not understood by his followers will be published in no particular order. Some will be re-issues of parts of once-published articles. This way, readers can convince themselves of the validity of these interpretations and of the fact that no one else can give any kind of interpretations that bear a similar seal of divinity.

A small example to start with, will suffice at this point. In 2010, I started the Shadow Series with a study of the Garden of Gethsemane. I called the study Full Moon at Gethsemane, which was to ward off a major attack against the Seventh-day Adventist Church by other faiths including the lunar Sabbath keepers. There I took a statement of Ellen G. White, who had seen in a vision a full moon in Gethsemane on the eve of Christ's crucifixion in (according to the Adventist position) the year AD 31 and tried to harmonize it using the astronomical calculations of the opponents of God's church. In so doing, I “stumbled” upon the true calendar of God, which He taught Moses in the Bible, and which today is misunderstood and misapplied by all denominations. It was the day of the crucifixion of the Lord that was the master key to understanding how the beginnings of the years and months were really calculated according to the calendar of the God of the Israelites. Only with this genuine creation calendar, the later biblical astronomical calculations were possible which led to the High Sabbath List and therefore the date of the coming of the Lord.

The focus of this study, therefore, was the question of how it could have been possible that Jesus died on the cross in AD 31 on a Friday, when the 14th of Nissan (Passover) in the two “classic” views in question came during the months of March or April, and did not astronomically fall on a Friday. The problem could only be solved with a new understanding of the divinely set year-beginning, which depends on the vernal equinox and finally proves that the Israelites—as our Adventist pioneers believed—actually performed the barley harvest test each year.

With this new calendar understanding I finally arrived at a Friday... May 25, AD 31. This article even caught the attention of some Adventists who normally are deeply sleeping and was published in a German journal of an Adventist splinter group. On the other hand, the Adventist leadership did not react or recognize it in any way, even though the problem has been represented as unsolved for 50 years in the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary.

Nevertheless, God had already shown the prophet Ernie Knoll years earlier that I would one day do this study, and it was confirmed in a wonderful way I would eventually find the real crucifixion date:

The Herald says to turn and look up. The sky rolls apart as a scroll and I watch a scene from the throne of God. I notice the image of the Father command a most noble angel that stands next to the throne to go quickly to His Son. I see the angel helping Jesus hold the symbolic cup to His lips. The angel shows Him those that will be saved because of His decision. Jesus knows His choice and for the third time says aloud, “Heavenly Father, if it is possible, please let this cup pass from Me, but may Your will be done, not Mine.” As the angel stands up, I see his face up close for the first time. I quickly turn to the Herald who tells me, “You like I are a messenger. We are to provide messages and care for those we are directed to. Who we are is not important. Remember, the only name that all should have on their lips is Jesus Christ--our Creator and Master, your Savior and Brother. The scene I have just shown you is a study all should do not only once but many times. What your Savior did is beyond your understanding now but will be the study of the saved for eternity.” {In The Heart of Jesus}

The reference to the study of the scene in the Garden of Gethsemane is repeated several times in the dream and it was even included a picture of Jesus kneeling in Gethsemane, where He is illuminated from above by the full moon.

The final confirmation of the crucifixion date is found in the dream with the distinct name The Cross. There Ernie Knoll is at the crucifixion scene which was presented in an impressive way, with Jesus saying: “What I do, I do because I love you. Tell My people I love them and that I do this so they may live. Tell them to remember what I now do for them.” Since Ernie Knoll sees back into time, and Jesus so strongly emphasizes the here and now, one should consider the dream date a little more closely... Ernie Knoll had the dream on the 25th of May 2008.

There is much more to say on this subject that I refer the interested reader to the soon-coming sub-section for Ernie Knoll, under which will appear old and new articles covering all of these interpretations. Despite my submitting this very extensive evidence that the dreams of Ernie Knoll confirmed all the light of the fourth angel up to a certain point in time, as it is shown on our website, the followers of Ernie Knoll find it incredibly difficult to think logically and to accept the evidence. They would rather follow a person than examine the word of God, and that will soon be their undoing. Ernie Knoll has been in the camp of Satan for a long time and has become one of his most powerful tools. And even this Jesus foretold to Ernie Knoll himself in several of his dreams.

The Orion clock has been widely confirmed, sometimes in literal terms and sometimes in highly symbolic representations. Here again, a few brief examples should suffice:

The Herald now states that he is to take me somewhere, along with Becky. We are now in a large, light pink-colored room. There are thousands of people dressed in many layers of clothes, including thick coats, gloves, hats and boots over their shoes. Many have back packs on their backs. They have boxes, trunks, carts and suitcases with them.

Looking at the ceiling, I notice the face of a compass without a needle. It is painted on the center of the ceiling. The north, south, and west pointers are the same length from the center. However, the east pointer is three times as long and points to the only doors in the room. There are two doors that open outwards, which form a narrow opening with barely enough room for one person to fit through.

The doors can only be opened by a device above the doors. This device looks like a clock but does not have a face, just a single hand that moves very slowly. Above and to the left is a large see-through gold hopper. It has large, round, silver balls that shimmer. When the single hand points to the top position, the balls fall from the hopper one at a time down the track and into a container, giving power to the hand on the clock. When the single hand is almost at the top, a ball has almost reached the container and another takes its place. The single hand begins its trip around the clock again. The hopper now has very few balls left. When the last ball goes through the mechanism, the doors will open for a very short time and then close, never to be opened again. Those that do not go through remain in the room forever. {Two Cars}

The interpretation of this passage involves the recognition that each of the 144,000 must receive the character of Jesus, the characteristics of the four living creatures (lion, calf, man and eagle) having absorbed with full understanding of all the doctrines of the four creatures displayed in Orion. Only then can a person be sealed.

There is even more in the dream The Good Driver:

The voice continues, “In the halls of heaven is a great clock that shows the Master’s time. Watch for when these things will happen, but know that it will be according to when the great clock displays the time of My own choosing. The pastors I will send will do My bidding. They will teach according to My own heart. My earthly sanctuary will be a holy and reverent place to all of those who seek Me.”

All is now quiet. The Herald stands up and instructs. “Watch and know that all is according to the great holy clock controlled by Him who controls time. All will be according to His time, as HE IS.

The Rebellious Prophet

I had written to Ernie Knoll in 2008, because I had noticed that the year 2012 was mentioned in two of his dreams, which apparently referred to the Mayan calendar. At that time, I had also recognized 2012 twice in the Bible and was firmly convinced that it was not about the coming of Jesus, but the closing of the door of mercy for the Adventist Church, because of the terrible machinations of Satan that were to be expected for this year. There was never before such a complex preparation for an esoteric event as for this strange year. Shouldn't this have something to do with the persecution of God's faithful?

Ernie Knoll liked to call me “friend and brother” in his negative responses to my interpretations and questions. From the outset, he sent merely anti-time-setting quotes from Ellen G. White, even though these dates were mentioned in his own dreams, and my explanations of the same he always quickly rejected or did not answer anymore for a long time. You could see that he had not really read and studied my profound and detailed explanatory mails. Therefore, our mail contact was sporadic and rather one-sided. The mails that I have in my records will be posted here soon. The evidence against Ernie Knoll will be sobering for many of his followers.

When Two Cars came out with its strange clock mechanism on March 12, 2010, I tried several times to contact the Knolls again. These attempts came to nothing, and well-researched analysis on my part has always been dismissed with statements like: “I also shy away from working with dates and times, so please excuse me if I do not get into a discussion on that.” [Mail from Ernie Knoll to John Scotram dated March 30, 2010]

It was a mystery to me how God intended to work it out for this stubborn prophet to one day recognize what his dreams really meant, so that the two ministries could fulfill their mission together. At that time, I didn't yet know about the far more dangerous things which had begun to manifest in Ernie Knoll's former 4HisPeople Ministry. And later, everything would get much worse.

Unfortunately—and I must stress this—you can't get beyond the subject of Ernie Knoll without talking about the character of this man. I know how it hurts, being that he is also attacking my character in his recent dreams. When he first started, before his face was completely set against our ministry and before he dragged my name through the mud, I was first to write a few small articles against him in which I distanced myself from him politely, but later I decided to remove all articles and notes regarding Ernie Knoll from our website (which in the majority were indeed dream confirmations of the studies), since the laundry that needed to be washed here was simply too dirty. However—as will be seen in one of the other parts of this introductory series—it's no longer my decision to air this dirty laundry, but God's, and I can't resist the counsel of the Most High, who wishes that the reader would be informed about what happened back then. How God gave this order will be explained in a different article.

Since Ernie Knoll began to speak publicly about the LastCountdown Ministry in his “dreams” from May 12, 2011 onward, I had no choice but to assume that he had fallen a second time. When you talk about Ernie Knoll, you have to talk about the fact that this prophet already fell into the hands of Satan once in order to understand that it could happen a second time, and what the reasons were for it.

The First Fall of the Prophet

Bonnie & Clyde Knoll

On July 22, 2009, I visited the home page of Ernie Knoll again and instead of a new dream there was the following message:

07/22/2009 - NOTICE FROM 4HisPeople Board: The 4 His People Ministry Board learned of some very disturbing information the week of July 15. This information has led us to believe that though the dreams appear to be of a supernatural source, we now believe that this source was of Satan. Along with the meetings being cancelled and no future meetings authorized by the board, please know that Ernie and Becky Knoll are suspended from any activity related to the 4 His People Ministry.

Please cease contributing funds to this ministry.

For those of you who read the testimony and/or received emails from someone going by the name of “Candace”, we were able to determine through tracking email IP information, that Ernie Knoll is “Candace”. When pressed, he admitted to this on July 21 at 2:43pm in a phone call to two ministry board members. We have also determined that the “Great Commission Counsel” is also Ernie Knoll.

We urge everyone who has a “dream book” to throw it away, as we now understand that there are mind control elements in it.

We sincerely apologize to all who have read and believed these messages. We pray that those whose lives have been affected, including those of us on this ministry team and our families, will find closure. Thankfully, we have a loving Savior in Jesus Christ who is willing to forgive all who come to Him with sincere repentance.

While we have concerns about some of the arguments and statements made by those who openly opposed the dreams, we apologize to you specifically. We may at some time in the future ask that you consider the unscriptural positions taken, but it is clearly not appropriate at this time.

Please know that all of us involved in this ministry, only ever wanted to serve in the cause of Christ, to win souls for the kingdom. It is our prayer that those who have returned to Jesus, as a result of these messages, will not cast Him aside. While we cannot trust in man’s opinions, we can trust Jesus. Always look to Jesus for light and strength. May He find us ready, when He returns.

4 His People Ministry Board

Months later, I learned that Ernie and Becky Knoll already sent a message to a few friends on July 17, 2009, which included not quite the whole truth. This shows that neither of them are very EARNEST in telling the truth—even after they were caught in a lie:

07/17/2009 - NOTICE FROM ERNIE: We know this will come as a shock, but we have come to believe that the dreams are not of God. Even though there was truth in them, there was also error. We believe that Candace may have been an evil angel. I also received personal dreams that were obviously not from God. We will be putting a notice on our website soon. Our future meetings have been cancelled. ... Thank you.

Satan knows his time is short and is working to deceive even the very elect. We are so sorry and pray that the Lord will guide us into all truth.

Love & prayers
Ernie & Becky

[Emphasis mine. Sources and originals of the statements and other related e-mails can be found HERE.]

This message on the homepage came as a shock even for me, because Ernie was the only one who had seen the whole mess in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and had denounced it, not to mention the confirmations, especially of my two preliminary studies that would lead to the Orion message, which did not even exist as an idea in my head at that time yet. However, I had already discovered by that time a lot of strange numeric information in the dreams that coincided with my studies. I could not believe that all of Ernie's dreams came from Satan and so I waited. Even in my preaching I still spoke good about Ernie and cautioned not to condemn him prematurely. Later—as the followers of Knoll know sufficiently well—I would bitterly repent for my loyalty to Ernie. And so it will be for them soon too.

Eight months later, however, my former behavior would appear in symbolic form in one of Ernie's dreams:

As we walk around, I see a young woman with a large bag of fruit. She is giving it to people waiting to get on the ride. As some take the fruit, they leave the park and the woman asks a few of them to work with our group. Many state they do not want the fruit and ask the woman to leave them alone. These people remain in the park.

I now walk over to the woman and tell her I know who she is and that I have seen her before. She says, “I know very well who you are and of the work you have done, how many have accepted the truth you are shown and they are safe. I know how you fell and how you did not see me, but I was there helping you as you got up. I know of the false things others have said and how because of that many no longer are interested in eating the fruit I have to offer. They have walked away and are headed over the edge. The woman continues to approach people one at a time but very quickly offers them fruit and then continues on. {The Amusement Park}

The “young woman” represents our then very young LastCountdown Ministry and the fruits are the studies of the years since 2005. The Orion study was newly published when Ernie had the amusement park dream. We still offer our fruit quickly in the Adventist “amusement park” entering it through Facebook groups, from which, in most cases, we are promptly deleted if we do not leave them by ourselves “shaking the dust off our feet” because of the vulgar behavior of the brethren.

At that time, anyway, I still had like many followers of Ernie Knoll the hope that soon everything would turn out to have been just a “bad dream” and trusted in the providence of Jesus. And so it happened. As suddenly as the ministry had disappeared, it reappeared. On August 2, 2009, less than two weeks after the dissolution of the 4HisPeople ministry, Ernie was back. This time he was not named alone on the website, but his wife was included. In spite of the separation rumors because he supposedly did not even tell his wife that he himself was the prostitute “Candace” and the “Great Commission Council”, now in big letters on the new homepage of the newly named ForMyPeople Ministry glared: “Official Website of Ernie & Becky Knoll.” This time, they probably wanted to tackle the matter alone and have no other gods before them. Something smelled fishy even then. The “resurrection” of Ernie Knoll had happened a little too fast even for me.

To give you an idea just how far Ernie Knoll went with his lies, I'll quote here from two fake emails from “Candace”. One can picture the lively imagination of Ernie Knoll, who can not only slip into the role of a woman, but also into the role of a prostitute. Here is the original text, which could be found on the website of the 4HisPeople Ministry and other supporting sites as a “testimony”:

FROM CANDACE – November 2007
[Note: This is an edited version of an amazing testimony from a former prostitute who is now a follower of Jesus Christ.]

Greetings to Everyone:

On June 20 I was working in the evening. I was a prostitute. I had been working the streets since I was 16. The reason I started at that age is not as important as where I am now. I was a heavy drug user. Mostly crack. I drank a lot. I still am battling with cigarettes. This is the really hard part that I have shared with many of my friends who are no longer my friends but some have accepted what I have shared with them to be truth. I do not share this for you to look at me but to look at Jesus, as He is the one who forgave me in the life I was walking and now walk in a new way.

I was on my corner when a man in a convertible said he would like to speak with me. I said, “Sure.” I climbed in and we began driving. He looked over at me and called me Candace. I was shocked and thought the worst. He then said, “Do not be afraid.” He began to explain to me that he had been sent to give me a message and that message was from Jesus Christ. He told me that Jesus is coming and that He wants me to get ready to go to heaven. I was very scared and told the man that I did not want to die. The man said, “Do not be afraid because no harm will come to you.”

The man pulled into a shopping center parking lot and stopped. He told me that there is a man that is receiving messages from Jesus and that this very night Jesus would show him the importance of the cross that He died on. This man told me the man’s name is Ernie Knoll, that he has been receiving dreams from Jesus and that the dreams can be read on a web site. He told me the web site and I wrote it down. Then the man told me to find a TV show called “It Is Written” with Shawn Boonstra and another TV show called “Amazing Facts” with Doug Batchelor and that these men will teach me what I need to know. I wrote down these TV shows and their names. Then the man said that these three men have been selected by Jesus to do an important work together for Him, that I was to change the way I live and that Jesus is coming to take me to heaven. The man said to keep watching for Jesus, that there is much to learn and this is a good place to start.

The man then got out of the car and walked around to my door and opened it so I could get out. He pointed toward the buildings and said that there was a meeting going on in there and they would help me with my questions. He said he was to leave but for me to walk in the new way in which I was shown. As I looked at the man, he had the way that he looked change right before me and I fell to my knees and began crying. I watched as I saw this man change into a bright being of light. I watched as he had wings that somehow came out from behind him and he flew up and away.

After a few minutes I got up and noticed there was no car there. I started walking to the place in the shopping center where there was a religious meeting going on. I went in, sat down and tried to listen but I was numb and shaking from what had just happened. After the meeting ended I spoke to several of the people there and they made me feel welcome. They gave me a Bible and a book called The Great Controversy. I was too afraid to tell them what had happened earlier that evening and that they would laugh or think I was a crazy person and have me taken away by the police.

After I visited and asked questions for a while I returned home, took a shower, and spent time looking up and talking to God as if He was up in the ceiling. I shared what had happened and told Him that I was no longer going to live the way I had. I promised Him that I was going to change. I have, except for the cigarette problem, which I am trying to give up.

I went to bed and when I woke up the next morning I kneeled next to my bed. It was the first time in a long while since I kneeled, but I actually talked to God and I felt like He was listening to me. I got up, went over to my computer and went to the web site that the man, or whatever he was, told me about. I began reading the dreams of a man by the name of Ernie Knoll. I was glued to the computer while reading the messages and was getting wrapped up in them. I would cry and then I would be happy. I would read and reread them because I was afraid I might have missed something. Then a few days later when the dream of the cross was posted (“Stand on the Truth”), I cried while praying. This is the dream that the man was telling me Ernie Knoll would be shown that night. I have learned so much from what I have read on this web site. I read later how I am supposed to go to church on Saturday and that it is the day that Jesus wants us to go on. I continued to read these messages and started watching the It Is Written TV show with Pastor Shawn Boonstra and Pastor Doug Batchelor of Amazing Facts.

Anyway, I just wanted to share here how Ernie Knoll and the messages he has been putting on the web site has greatly affected me. I know without a doubt that these are messages from God sent to read and grow in. It has been several months for me now and I have a new way of life, a full time job and I am drug and alcohol free. I have a full time relationship with Jesus. I know if it had not been for the man or who ever it was, I would never be typing this right now. I have no doubt that Jesus is coming, that He is talking to Ernie and that what he is being shown is what Jesus wants him to share. All I can say is thank you Pastor Knoll for posting these messages. I especially thank Jesus for giving these to Ernie, for loving and forgiving me, for making me what I am now and for hearing and answering every one of my prayers. I want to go and see for myself the things Ernie has seen in the dreams. As Pastor Knoll says, keep watching for that small black cloud!

And because that was not enough, Ernie Knoll alias “Candace” had to do it yet again:

Follow-up testimony from Candace - November 21, 2007

I did want to tell you that the angel has come to me again and told me that Jesus has heard the prayers of many that have read what I shared [in my last testimony] and that many lives would be changed and brought closer to Jesus. He said that there are many others who are still walking in the same way I used to and that they will also be invited to walk in a new way. I said, “Praise Jesus,” to the angel and he said that Jesus has removed my want to smoke anymore. I have had that craving removed and I no longer smoke. It is the most wonderful thing to no longer want to pick up a cigarette and smoke. When the angel came to visit me this last time he said he had a very special present for me, that it will help me to get ready for Jesus to come and that it will teach me how I need to change. He gave me a book called Creeping Compromise and I have been reading it. Actually I have not been able to put it down. I have read it four times now.

You know there is so much more I need to change in the way I was living. All the jewelry, the meat, all my makeup--I tell you, I don’t care. It all went in the garbage. If I am going to be someone Jesus wants me to be then it all had to go in the trash. I mean, I am not going to be wearing it when I go to heaven. The angel told me that soon really bad things will begin to happen and that I am not to be afraid. He said, “Do you remember I told you that no harm will come to you?” He said that Jesus will not allow any harm to come to me, that Jesus has placed special angels to protect me.

I moved from where I used to live to another state as I did not want people to know or recognize me from my old life. I have started a whole new life with a job and found a church where I have been accepted as a new member and was baptized. I should tell you, that was the best day of my life when I was baptized. It was a new day and a new life for me as no one knew about my past and I felt like Jesus said it was no more and that I have a new life.

I did want to share how what Jesus has shown you has changed my life and that there are many, many others out there who believe and are being led by Jesus to hear Him speaking to you. I am not one to give encouragement, but I know it must be hard for you to read some of the stuff folk write about you. But just remember that it is all to the glory of Jesus. I know I want to sit and be in the back where no one will look at me but just look to Jesus. But I know that when I get to heaven I want to have my angel take me to you so I can give you a big hug and tell you thank you for putting what Jesus showed you on the Internet. The angel did say that you will soon be reaching many people as there are important people who will have you speaking and sharing what Jesus has shown you. I hope you don’t mind, but I like telling people that I am sitting on that hill watching for that small black cloud. Thank you again, Pastor Knoll, for the things you have shared.

Watching for that small black cloud, Your new sister, Candace

[The original emails from “Candace” are still visible at the following addresses:]

And then Ernie Knoll really began having fun lying and he invented the hair-raising tale of a “Great Commission Council”, which purportedly examined all his dreams and concluded that they “came from God.” Anyone who reads this now knowing that this is all pure fantasy of Ernie Knoll, knows what this “prophet of God” is capable of when the devil rides him:

The Great Commission Council

NOTE: We were sent an email with the following and asked to share it. Although it mentions names and ministries which we have refrained from doing on this website, we felt that since it is a testimony and because of where it has come from, we should add it here for all to see.

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

Before I quote this cock-and-bull story, this time allow me to make a NOTE: Displayed on the old site of the 4HisPeople Ministry, this tall tale clearly proves the rumors completely false and unfounded that Becky wanted to separate from Ernie after he was discovered. Which wife, so interested in her husband's ministry that she would later even be able to write a book of more than 1000 pages about the work and purpose of the ministry and the apostasy within the Seventh-day Adventist Church in every detail with names of all ministries and responsible people, would not have asked her husband who these ministries and pastors actually were that supposedly collaborated as the “Great Commission Council”? Ernie would then have already had to confess at this point in time to his wife! A carefully prepared fake e-mail with the names of unknown persons or of persons and ministries that Becky could verify would also not fulfill his purpose. Even a “prophet” as clumsy as Ernie Knoll, who doesn't understand Internet IPs, would have had to know that his highly intelligent wife could easily see through such a scam. Thus, only one logical conclusion remains: Becky Knoll was party to it from the outset. She fully supports her husband's lies to create an apparent success for the “work of God.” That was also fully recognized by the Board of the former 4HisPeople Ministry and therefore when the two were found out nearly a year later, the following sentence appeared in the official closing statement from the ministry (see above): "... please know that Ernie and Becky Knoll are suspended from any activity related to the 4HisPeople Ministry.” Later, we will see the true motives of “Bonnie and Clyde” Knoll.

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ.

With this document we want to share the united opinion of many who have studied and compared the dreams of Ernie Knoll against the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. However, a little background on who we are and the process is in order.

Our small weekly study group first heard of Ernie Knoll and his dreams on May 16 2007. One of the brothers in our study group brought the dream he had called Go Forth! and shared it that evening. After reading and discussing the dream we had a long season of prayer. The following week we met and it was decided that we should begin reading and study all of the dreams brother Knoll had had. We decided to compare them as we have been instructed, “to the Law and to the Testimony.” It was decided that we needed to compare these messages to the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. It was also decided as we studied to keep our findings to our self as to not promote a fore or against decision. As time went and additional dreams came we decided to broaden our group study. Invitations were sent out to 'select' individuals to participate in an in depth study of the dreams. The stipulation was set forth that the invited individual would remain anonymous along with the rest of the established group and that their name would never be shared. As the group grew the group moved to an email discussion in a closed online forum. The men in this now large study group are made up of the following individuals. Active and retired pastors from the General Conference. Select leaders from different Unions. Active and retired pastors from select Seventh-Day Adventist churches. Active and retired teachers and professors from different academies, colleges and universities. Literature evangelists. Attorneys from private as well as firm based. Select ardent students of the Bible. It was this large group that we began an ardent and exhaustive study of the dreams of Brother Ernie Knoll.

Following the example given from Spirit of Prophecy shown below we began. We know that we had to follow the council from God given to Ellen G. White. “First submitting it to brethren of experience. Lay it before them in a humble, teachable spirit, with earnest prayer; and if they see no light in it, yield to their judgment; for “in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”--Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 291-293”

In taking direction from Spirit of Prophecy on reorganization at the beginning of Solomon's reign.

In planning for the administration of the affairs of the kingdom, after David abdicated in favor of Solomon, the aged king and his son and their counselors regarded it as essential that everything be done with regularity, propriety, fidelity, and dispatch. So far as possible, they followed the system of organization given Israel soon after the deliverance from Egypt. The Levites were assigned the work connected with the temple service, including the ministry of song and instrumental music, and the keeping of the treasures. {RH, October 12, 1905 par. 3}

The men capable of bearing arms and of serving the king were divided into twelve courses of twenty-four thousand each. Over every course was a captain. “The general of the king's army was Joab.” “The courses . . . came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year.” Thus every group of twenty-four thousand served the king one month during each year. {RH, October 12, 1905 par. 4}

David appointed Jonathan, his uncle, as “a counselor, a wise man, and a scribe;” Ahithophel also was “the king's counselor. . . . And after Ahithophel was Johoiada . . . and Abiathar.” Hushai was “the king's friend.” By his prudent example, the aged king taught Solomon that “in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” {RH, October 12, 1905 par. 5}

The thoroughness and completeness of the organization perfected at the beginning of Solomon's reign; the comprehensiveness of the plans for bringing the largest number possible of all the people into active service; the wide distribution of responsibility, so that the service of God and of the king should not be unduly burdensome to any individual or class,--these are lessons which all may study with profit, and which the leaders of the Christian church should understand and follow. {RH, October 12, 1905 par. 6}

This picture of a great and mighty nation living in simplicity and comfort in rural homes, every person rendering willing and unsalaried service to God and the king for a portion of each year, is one from which we may gather many helpful suggestions. {RH, October 12, 1905 par. 7}

We set forth to either prove or disprove these messages. They were either from God or from Satan. It was decided early on that we would not rush forward with our findings. We have seen many others who have done this and we as a group will address these as well.

The other item which was decided was the testimony of a prostitute by the name of Candace which is found on Brother Knoll's Web site. The testimony is located at this address It was decided to prove her as real or made up. It was decided that a private investigator would be hired. We gave the investigator a copy of the testimony and a little information we had gathered to begin his research. In July of 2008 he was successful at locating her. It was then decided that three pastors would visit her. It was also decided to make the visit unplanned. In August of 2008 three pastors arrived at her location. One of the visiting pastors stated “when the young lady opened the door to our shock and surprise she looked at each of us and called us each by our name.” She explained that her angel had told her not only the exact day but also the hour the three pastors would arrive but also the names and what the three pastors would look like. The three pastors conducted a long interview. At the end one requested to see the Bible and the book Great Controversy she was given at the shopping center when the angel dropped her off. He also requested to see the book Creeping Compromise which the angel hand delivered to her later. It was reported that all three pastors were overcome with emotions and they all fell to their knees in supplication for God's goodness. At the end of the meeting Candace requested that the three pastors never disclose where she lives nor her real name. On behalf of the group that sent the three pastors a request was made that she not disclose the names of the three pastors.

Now dear followers of Ernie Knoll, watch out! What follows in Ernie's fictitious text is the early version of the “devastating” counter attacks against his opponents, which now permeate most of his dreams as perpetual repetitions of the same facts, but with ever-increasing threats. However, instead of the “Great Commission Council”, the lying Ernie now puts the “Herald/Gabriel”, “Jesus” or even the “Father Himself” on the stage in his “dreams” to make them condemn the same people to eternal death over and over again. And because the lying couple is working hand in hand, these people were naturally also named in Becky's “Truth Book” with an entire chapter dedicated to each one.

The following names, familiar to the readers of the dreams and the “truth book”, will now be mentioned in this order: Steve Wohlberg, G. Edward Reid, Eugene Prewitt, Linda Kirk, Vance Farrell, David Gates and Laura Lee Jones.

Only later did Ángel Manuel Rodriguez get added as an opponent on Ernie's death list, along with a former friend of his, John Scotram... the most frequently mentioned and “worst” of all, a blasphemer for the “sin” of time-setting. Whether lunar Sabbath keeper, Jesuit, or simply faithful Adventist who fervently expects his Lord, all are thrown into the same cauldron to burn in the eternal fires of Ernie Knoll's imaginary hell.

Of course, some people are listed who represent seductive doctrines and probably really will suffer eternal death, but it's certainly not because of a judgment of Ernie Knoll or of one of his “dream characters” and certainly not in the way of “being eaten alive by the earth” as he and some of his followers desire (see his latest dream Final Events and the First Supper). Such a perverse fantasy can only be developed by someone under demonic influence and something like this can only be esteemed as good and true by those people who have similarly sick minds and have never experienced the love of God.

So, those who dare say anything against Ernie Knoll, watch out! Ernie's dream-Jesus will then eat you alive, body and soul, nibbling slowly and with relish! To me at least, this imagery is very reminiscent of the Catholic Inquisition with its spread of fear and panic, and we know who the “boss” of the pope is.

Now let's proceed with “Ernie's Story Hour” where he “masterfully” intertwines truth and lies...

As a study group we have read and discussed the negative comments that have been made. We wish to briefly discuss a few of these in this document.

We found it interesting that no tangible decision had been made as to the origin of the messages Brother Knoll had been receiving till the February 5 dream called Stand Fast. The first comment was made regarding the execution of many till Revelation 20:4 was discussed. Things quickly escalated when the statement of the tithe was made. A quick decision was reached by Pastor Steve Wohlberg who is the director of White Horse Media and G. Edward Reid who is the Stewardship Director for the NAD. Both of these individuals rushed comments to discredit Brother Knoll. Brother Wohlberg quickly denounced the messenger who speaks with brother Knoll and stated the messenger was of Satan. We are cautioned against this in both the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. Not long after this comment Brother Wohlberg states that 1st John 4 1-3 is not a valid test. The entire study group had a problem with this comment from brother Wohlberg. Another item was the fact that he denies that Jesus came in the flesh as Adam after sin without the propensity to sin. This setup another red flag to the study group as to the validity of his thinking. When we studied in the April 12, 2008 dream titled Love and Rebuke, we quickly realized that this was addressing Steve Wohlberg and White Horse Media.

“Let he that rides dismount and prostrate before the Lord of hosts, the Creator of the universe, He who came to be the created. Bow before your Master and confess your sins so all will hear of your rebellion. A message was sent to a chosen messenger and you denied your Lord's ear and convinced others to turn away. Repent now and ask for forgiveness so the Father will hear and turn His face toward you. Ask this through and in the name of His Son. Kneel, confess your sins lest the streams and rivers dry up and the horse that drinks die, lest you walk the face of the earth and every ear turn away from you as the words you speak fall like rocks from your mouth. Repent lest the Lord God spew you out of His mouth as boiling seawater.”

Now we see on the White Horse Media web site a plea for emergency funds. God is fulfilling His rebuke. It appears that brother Wohlberg's ministry is dying. You can find his plea for emergency funding at this link. news_29 (webmasters note: the newsletter the original link pointed to was changed by White Horse Media so we are providing a copy for all to see.)

As for Brother Reid, it is obvious why many of this group wish to remain un-named. Many are still receiving financial support but we ask for how much longer. Brother Reid's comments he made regarding brother Knoll was unprepared. It was a quick release to discredit brother Knoll and no study was given. After a thorough in depth study of what the messenger told brother Knoll, we have found that the message is in complete agreement with the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. The other item which needs to be addressed is the usage of the story of the widow and her few mites. This is not the illustration Jesus was giving that she gave all she had to a corrupt storehouse but that she was faithful in paying a tithe. This is what brother Knoll was shown. It is important to pay a tithe but that the payer will be held accountable if the payer knows the tithe is being used against God's will. This is in agreement with Spirit of Prophecy. As we studied further in to Gods storehouse it is shown that Sister White specifically stated that the conference is not to be the only storehouse. So the question came as to where should tithe be sent. The answer was simple. To those who are doing the work of God. How would one know if they are doing the work of God? We are told by their fruits you shall know them. Some have stated that it is wrong that brother Knoll is accepting tithe but then again it is also realized that the fruit of his ministry has brought more souls back to God then many churches through a course of many evangelistic series. We have found that so many are blinded by wrong leadership that wrong decisions are being made by individuals. One final note is the group discussed how it was announced recently a conference placed the entire retirement fund for pastors in a stock and then lost all of the funds. If you the reader are hearing of pastoral layoffs and or how pastors will be now having several churches in their district this is a contribution to the misuse of Gods money. The comment is stated that tithe is at an all time low. It is also at an all time high that the tithe is being misused by the one who holds the keys. United are we in watching to see the keys knocked from brother Reid's hand. Ed this plea also comes from your co-workers. Choose you this day our brother. How long oh Lord must we watch till your church be cleansed! It was also discussed how Brother Reid contacted the churches via the NAD to not allow Brother Knoll to speak in any of our churches. We discussed who these churches belong to. We have always believed they belonged to God. We invite pastors to re-think whom you report to.

There is no question that I also agree with Ernie's substantive statements about tithing, but the fact is he is claiming to have a right to receive tithe payments for the wrong reasons, be it in this first lying letter on this subject, or be it in the more recent dreams in which he makes his dream-Jesus beg for money for him. Ernie Knoll stated in the above paragraph that he “has brought more souls back to God than many churches through a course of many evangelistic series” justifying it by the fictitious individual he invented, “Candace.” Then he invents this “Great Commission Council”, which affirms his claim. One thing is sure thus far: Ernie Knoll actually is a prostitute.

An individual named Eugene Prewitt performed a study and discredited brother Knoll. We will not take time to go over his many comments as others have already done this on other web sites. A few of the web site that go over brother Prewitt's comments is and

Linda Kirk shared a testimony regarding brother and sister Knoll. The open letter she shared was not against the message but against the messenger. We found it interesting that her letter made the Adventist email rounds but the response he made did not. We feel it is important that brother Knoll's response to Linda Kirk be given equal viewing. Following this link will take you to the response given by brother Knoll.

Vance Farrell wrote an article subjecting his view points with Linda Kirk. The article lends itself to Linda Kirk. We the group found Linda's loyalties to her former boss she used to be Steve Wohlberg's secretary.

David Gates who was sharing the messages of brother Knoll received an email from someone named LJ. In the email she discredits Brother Knoll. Brother Gates without verifying what he read was true or not quickly dismissed brother Knoll and sided with LJ. LJ are the initials of an individual named Laura Lee Jones. It was found in WorldNetDaily what Laura Lee Jones believes. It was found that David Gates had joined hands with a woman that not only promotes Feast Days but also according to her article, all of the “Sabbaths” in the month of August fall on Sunday. Here is a copy of the article with photos of LJ.

Laura Lee Jones is one of the main channels that preach the lunar Sabbath doctrine, so please spare me the further translation of this work of lies. We are really focusing on Ernie Knoll. By the way, I would be very surprised if David Gates ever had anything to do with the lunar Sabbath heresy! Ernie Knoll, however, is already bordering on character assassination!

Another note: The text is quoted exactly. Unfortunately, Ernie Knoll uses such a clumsy language that a blind man reading it would notice that it is no writing of an academic “pastor”, but rather of the awkward Ernie Knoll. The fact that Ernie's followers didn't notice it long before is a sign of the lack of discernment on their part.

These are a few of those who have taken the mantle of the ability to critique who they believe is and what God's message will be. These individuals have made their decisions and have documented their findings to convey the opinion of God's people. We the “Great Commission Council” study group will not do that. We invite each in through prayer and study to re-evaluate the messages brother Knoll has received. Call not evil good and good evil. Each will stand before God without the individuals mentioned above. We should follow the council given with “If you indulge stubbornness of heart, and through pride and self-righteousness do not confess your faults, you will be left subject to Satan's temptations. If when the Lord reveals your errors you do not repent or make confession, his providence will bring you over the ground again and again. You will be left to make mistakes of a similar character, you will continue to lack wisdom, and will call sin righteousness, and righteousness sin. The multitude of deceptions that will prevail in these last days will encircle you, and you will change leaders, and not know that you have done so. RH, December 16

Yes, Ernie Knoll, here it is: The one who does not truly repent and confess his faults because of stubbornness of heart, pride and self-righteousness will ultimately choose Satan as his leader. You did not notice that you stepped into your own trap, as you have by your own deception dedicated yourself to the Lord of Lies. Your second fall was inevitable, because your repentance was not genuine or else only lasted a short while, and so you were brought over the same ground again and continued repeating your mistakes. Today you call sin righteousness, and righteousness sin. You oppose the true message of God because of the many deceptions you succumb to by your lack of wisdom.

You continue as the “Great Commission Council” to abuse quotes from Ellen G. White for your own purposes:

How do we meet with the comments of the critics?

Those who have departed from the faith will come to our congregations to divert our attention from the work that God would have done. You cannot afford to turn your ears from the truth to fables. Do not stop to try to convert the one who is speaking words of reproach against your work, but let it be seen that you are inspired by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and angels of God will put into your lips words that will reach the hearts of the opposers. If these men persist in pressing their way in, those who are of a sensible mind in the congregation will understand that yours is the higher standard. So speak that it will be known that Jesus Christ is speaking through you.--9T 148, 149

Well now, Ernie Knoll, did you obey this advice from the messenger of God as you turned against the message of the fourth angel? Can anyone recognize in your never-ending dream-threats against your opponents that Jesus Christ speaks through you? Are the words of excessive scaremongering in your recent dreams Jesus' words or your own? Is that Jesus' voice in Final Events and the First Supper, or is it just your own imagination controlled by Satan, which promises the following to your favorite aforementioned enemies, including your arch enemy with the clock and sextant:

Suddenly, the ground opens just a little, and each one is standing in a hole up to their ankles. They are separate from each other. They try to free themselves but are not able to. As they stand there for a little while, the ground suddenly opens and closes. They are now in the ground a little below their knees. As others run to rescue them, they also become trapped in the ground. Many stand at a distance in horror, because the ground now holds all these people.

As time goes by, the ground is constantly shaking them back and forth. It looks as if the ground is hungry and literally devouring them. No one else nearby feels the earth moving, only those who are trapped. The bystanders are unable to help. Slowly, the ground continues to devour its victims, who now are held captive just a little above the knees. The more they try to free themselves, the harder the ground becomes around them. In some places it looks like they stand in the middle of a solid rock.

Many of those watching fall to their knees and beg for God’s mercy on those who are trapped. Many cry out that it was through one of those individuals that they were brought to Christ. Others mention all the great things another individual has done. However, just because someone does great things for God, does not mean they will be saved automatically. Notice the following Bible verse: “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:21.

I now look up and see angels writing cloud-like letters in the sky. The words tell how each was given ample opportunity to approach God’s throne. Each one had been contacted personally by individuals who had written them, asking them to repent. Every once in a while the ground opens up then quickly closes, and all these individuals slide further down into the mouth of the earth.

As time progresses and the earth shakes, the individuals are covered to their waist. Then they are swallowed to their ribs. Moments later the ground opens and they are under the ground up to their necks. They each have time to contemplate the things they have said and done. Each knows that the final judgment is upon him or her. They had stood proudly to dismiss God’s messages and lead people away from the truth. Now the ground opens for the last time, and each one drops slowly down, buried in the earth.

Those who do not know your schemes against us should now clearly see that you have put us under heavy psychological pressure through your “envoys” in recent months. Again and again messages that we should “Repent or die in agony!” or “What a shame it would be that everything has to end like this!” have come from your minions Edgar Rico Briñez, Elias Sanchez and Sandra Weingarten not to mention the poor Damian Nelson Alderete, who was so totally confused by you that he sent you a big part of his savings for your fairytale lecture tour, which was more like a vacation according to how Becky described it in one of your newsletters. After months of living like a parasite, you still needed another two weeks of vacation from the vacation. What a stark contrast to our farm life here, where we haven't seen a day off for seven years and folks here only have the weekly Sabbath to recover both physically and mentally. Are you not ashamed to rob people's possessions so you can take vacations on their dime to invent new “dreams” which you later make a profit on?

Ernie Knoll, do you really think that your torture threats can convince someone to leave the narrow way when he gave up EVERYTHING for Christ and out of love is doing everything possible to be faithful to Him, and wishes only that His advent is as near as the Orion and the Vessel of Time show? Can you show me one quote from Ellen G. White saying that time setting is really a sin that needs to be punished so cruelly? I would like to say something... As we read it, we all said unanimously... If that's how it is, then so be it. None of us who trust that Jesus does nothing without telling His servants the prophets both event and time, want to be together with such people in heaven whatever it would look like. We would all prefer eternal death to that!

You, a.k.a. “Great Commission Council”, go on to violate Ellen G. White's words:

The item of open forums were discussed and we noticed a couple are controlled by certain individuals. We share this if only to alert our findings. Knowing that God has said “I must warn all our churches to beware of men who are being sent out to do the work of spies in our conferences and churches,--a work instigated by the father of falsehood and deception. Let every church-member stand true to principle. We have been told what would come, and it has come.” Special Testimonies.”

Why, Ernie Knoll, did you act against your own advice as quoted here by sending spies into our private forum to siphon information that was not intended for the public? Did you want to avenge yourself because by God's providence some of your unpublished dreams came to us without us being actively involved, and have therefore resorted to the basest form of warfare of sending your followers to creep in among us under pretense of faith in the Orion message to spy on the faithful of God to find out what they have given up for God, so you can use it against them in your imaginary dreams? Have you no respect for the WORD OF GOD, which says: “Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.” (Luke 18:28-30) Where did you get the audacity to discredit people who have left absolutely everything to serve God, and in your fake dreams call them bad parents, husbands, or wives who are blindly following a “sect” leader?

Is it you, the one who “does not understand”, who missed the fact that the WORD OF GOD teaches that religious reform involves dissolution of mixed marriages with heathen or unbelieving or apostate spouses, when it would prevent them from following Christ, or if the time has come to walk only for the Lord?

Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore. And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing. Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law. Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it. Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware. Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God, and went into the chamber of Johanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away. And they made proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem unto all the children of the captivity, that they should gather themselves together unto Jerusalem; And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away. Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain. And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel. Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives. Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do. (Ezra 10:1-12)

Why do you lie, Ernie Knoll, in proposing that this little handful of people who came to Paraguay experienced “separation between husbands and wives for no good reason?” {Other Sheep} Did your spies not tell you that they all invited their spouses to come too and none of them wanted to? None of those who were left behind were left behind for a good reason! None of them wanted to be faithful to God and spat in His face. Why doesn't your dream-Jesus know this? He not only doesn't know his own time, but he doesn't even know the reasons behind people's actions. Then what kind of a judge will your dream-Jesus be? Someone like you, who only judges others but can't see the beam in his own eye?

The next part of your “Great Commission Council” tale takes the cake:

As we tried to participate in some of the forums it did not kindle a Christ like spirit. On one forum it was noticed that the testimony of Candace was deleted. We as a group feel that the individual who removed her testimony might meet with the criteria in the following statement. “I have been shown that evil angels in the form of believers will work in our ranks to bring in a strong spirit of unbelief. These powers of evil will assemble in our meetings, not to receive a blessing, but to counterwork the influences of the Spirit of God. In this time evil angels in the form of men will talk with those who know the truth. They will misinterpret and misconstrue the statements of the messengers of God.” Selected Messages.”

Ernie Knoll, how do you so cleverly swap truth with falsehood? You were the evil angel who appeared in our ranks in the form of a former prostitute who supposedly came to the faith. You are the power of evil that counter-works the Spirit of God in the studies of the Orion and the Vessel of Time, and it is you who misinterprets and misconstrues the messages of God. You clearly demonstrated here how you work, how you think, and that you will shrink back from nothing—not even a lie—to satisfy your bruised ego with your insatiable and perverse vindictiveness. You are a true child of your father Satan, if not he himself.

Therefore, your conclusion is as follows:


We have seen in a study of Zacharias and how dangerous it is and how careful we need to be before rejecting a message that comes from heaven. We recall how the leaders dismissed Ellen G. White. Are we going to make the same mistake again? Are we to reject Ernie Knoll's dreams? We have found NO error in the messages that have been presented so far. We the group aforementioned do stand behind and support the ministry of Brother Ernie Knoll. We encourage those faithful pastors to pray, study and review these messages God has sent. We have found that gross errors have been made by the critics mentioned and we watch as God deals accordingly.

It is our prayer, as a united group that we allow God to speak to all of us in unity.

Ernie Knoll, what truly believing man would dare even remotely call upon the Spirit of God while lying? It could be that it was just a different spirit that you summoned, namely the spirit of the Master of Lies. Friends, if a person is capable of such a thing as to even say a prayer within a lie, what else is such a person capable of? The least thing might be to take a dream that you only poorly remember, and turn it into something that satisfies the pride, ego and one's own claim to power. The motivation behind your dreams, Ernie Knoll, has become yourself, your alter-ego “EARNEST - the Truth.” All your recent dreams show this. Only the old ones are still inspired by God and in them you were repeatedly warned to stay faithful to Him. You were even told that you would not have any more dreams when you were unfaithful. And what today you think are dreams from God, are the same as what you received when you were “Candace”: dreams from Satan. Your own wife and accomplice says this in her “Truth Book” by citing the following passage from In The Heart of Jesus in the chapter on your “fall”:

The Herald explains the following. “I have waited to return to you but as before I had to wait till I was told to return. I come to you as a messenger. I am here to show you many things that you are to show to all. I know you wanted confirmation of what was happening. I watched as Satan began to deceive you. He shared great truth with you in some of your unpublished, private dreams, but there was always a little wrong along with all of the truth. I watched as he deceived you more and more. You were convinced that this was direction from the Father of all truth, but I watched as you received direction from the father of all lies. Our Father could have stopped him, but He allows things to happen when He knows it is for the betterment of all. Remember He knows the beginning to the end. He already knew that Satan would deceive you....

And you yourself say as the “Great Commission Council”:

There are a thousand temptations in disguise prepared for those who have the light of truth; and the only safety for any of us is in receiving no new doctrine, no new interpretation of the Scriptures, without first submitting it to brethren of experience. Lay it before them in a humble, teachable spirit, with earnest prayer; and if they see no light in it, yield to their judgment; for “in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”--Testimonies, Vol. 5, pp. 291-293.

Ernie Knoll, you yourself have never taken this advice to examine our studies. You don't get the argument that Ellen G. White's anti-time-setting statements were only for a specific time, and then the Holy Spirit will come with The Power of the Father. You did not examine, just like the Adventist Church did not. You are guilty of the same negligence as they are. Now everyone can read your e-mails, wherein you yourself admit that you have not even read the presentation of the Orion study completely. When you saw the 2012 date, you threw away the study even though your own dreams call out 2012 twice. Has it never occurred to you that God also warns of this year twice, once in Orion and once in the Vessel of Time?

Not even your friends have examined anything. You had dreams that even stated how things must be tested (i.e. Testing the Spirits), but none of them has even taken the trouble to study the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy to scrutinize. Instead, they blindly trust in you as their spiritual leader. Yes, Ernie Knoll, the way they follow you and how you allow no other gods beside you, you are perfectly fulfilling the image of a cult leader. You always say that your dreams are to be tested, but of others you warn that they should not waste their time with them. This is sectarianism in its most unpleasant, dangerous form.

To put the icing on the cake, you end your Great Commission spectacle with:

Our prayer is that God guide each as we study and not depend upon any man. You stand alone before God in that it is your decision. May God fill you with His Holy Spirit as you study.

The Great Commission Council

One can hardly believe it! What audacity a person must have in order as a single man to point out that you should not look to a single man, who plays a whole bunch of pastors, scholars, and leaders!

But when this individual was identified as a man and was pressed, he finally admitted what he had done. Except that very soon after that, he covered his tracks. Not even two weeks of remorse passed before he was back with Bonnie Knoll for a real selling out this time.

Have the friends of Ernie and Becky never noticed that now every dream only contains a “defense” of the poor misunderstood “prophet” that still is “the Truth” himself? Ah, and what about this... Bank account and transfer order of Jesus Christ directly to the ForMyPeople Ministry! How many of you gave away your homes, life insurance and retirement to this man, who has nothing to give you in return? Not that you'd still need it, but what if you wanted to invest it in the cause of God? Why didn't you prove him then? Why do you believe everything from a “dreamer without understanding” and why have you not examined the studies of John Scotram with the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy as you should? Why do you believe the slanderous words of a man who has already proven and demonstrated to you that he has a strong tendency toward lying?

True Repentance?

In the so-called Truth Book that Becky Knoll wrote in defense of her husband, we find a whole chapter on Ernie's first “fall”. In it, Ernie's wife uses comparisons with Bible characters to excuse his fall. Abraham at one point also lied to Pharaoh and Abimelech, Jacob also deceived his own father, David had also deceived others, and sinned with Bathsheba, Peter was also a coward, Moses had also dishonored God, Solomon also strayed far away from God and Jonah even disobeyed, and therefore God also had to forgive Ernie Knoll for inventing a prostitute named Candace.

One must question why he did that!

The justifications Ernie's wife gives for the first fall of her husband are as follows:

  1. Ernie was affected emotionally because so many people were not accepting the messages he was asked to give to God’s people.
  2. The false statements that were written about him also troubled him.
  3. Instead of taking these issues to God, Ernie became discouraged.
  4. His discouragement led to a lack of faith.
  5. As a result, Ernie made up the testimony of Candace.
  6. As Ernie created the story, he noticed the words flowed easily. This led him to believe that God must have inspired him to write it like a parable.
  7. Once he had posted the testimony, Ernie was sorry he did it, but he didn’t know how to get out of it.
  8. Ernie then began to beg God to stop giving him the dreams as he felt unworthy.
  9. As time went on, Ernie began to justify that God was inspiring him to write about Candace.
  10. When opposition to the dreams grew and websites started to appear that were against the dreams, Ernie made up the Great Commission Council.
  11. For a few months before Ernie was found out, he had been sending emails to friends and the board of the ministry as “Candace” asking them to pray for Ernie as Satan was attacking him and Becky (his wife).

My follow-up questions are:

  1. Shouldn't I be much more affected emotionally if all of God's people not only reject the messages that I've studied through the influence of the Holy Spirit, but also the prophet sent by God to confirm the studies? Have I capitulated and let myself fall because of the emotional stress Ernie has caused me and the psychological pressure that his “dream-Jesus” exerted on me with his torture and death threats? Did I allow myself to be carried away into lying against Ernie and/or his ministry and attacking Ernie's character (before I received a command from God, which I am complying with in writing this)?
  2. Did I let Ernie's false statements (which we will treat individually in the second part) worry me so much that I began to lie? Did the false accusations of the BRI bring me to lash out? Did the “affectionate” tirades of my brethren in Facebook bring me to defraud them?
  3. Yes, I was often discouraged, especially by Ernie's behavior. But I've always taken it all to Jesus. I agree with Becky that that is what a true man of God should have done!
  4. No, discouragement does not lead to a lack of faith, but a lack of faith leads to discouragement. Apparently Becky herself knows nothing of that fact. By her statement she is acknowledging that Ernie has a lack of faith, and that obviously Ernie can't be a prophet of God, and moreover that he can't even be sure of his own salvation. The just shall live by faith, and it must be a very strong faith. We have to demonstrate the patience of the saints and the faith of Jesus if we want to endure, and a man who wants to be a prophet of God has to set a shining example. Faith is the only thing we can give to the Lord... and it's the only thing that is destroyed by a lie.
  5. - 11. There is no excuse or explanation for what chain of events or feelings led to Ernie inventing “Candace” and the “Great Commission Council”. Perhaps he can be forgiven before God if he truly repents, but the requirements for a prophet are extremely stringent, as I will yet show at the end of this part. What can never be required, however, by anyone—not even God, because it contradicts His own laws—is that you have to believe a fallen, lying prophet a second time. On the contrary, God warns of that throughout His Word. As I will show in the next article, we can't even allow fallen ministers to return to their posts again. There are clear statements of Ellen G. White, which Ernie Knoll completely contradicts in his recent dreams. Again, a prophet is something very special. What you can, however, see beautifully in the sequence of Ernie's wife's statements is the fact that one lie leads to another and once you get started it is almost impossible to break away and escape the vicious cycle of sin. And for a man with lack of faith it is even harder.

The Bible gives us clear indications of what a high level of responsibility the prophetic office includes, and what to do with a prophet who lies:

If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5)

But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. (Deuteronomy 18:20)

Ernie Knoll should think hard about the example of another false prophet recorded in 1 Kings 13. The man of God had to die too, because he disobeyed a simple command of God. When God knows no mercy on prophets, it is because their office carries the highest responsibility and great damage can be done. A Bible student, however, may make a mistake as he has never claimed to be a prophet and the source can be verified by each individual by himself. A prophet like Ernie, however, claims to receive direct instructions from God which cannot be easily verified and therefore only the most honest and humble people can fulfill this duty. Ernie Knoll possesses neither of those characteristics, as this article demonstrates.

Still remaining to be examined are Becky's attempts at his defense using Bible characters, which she lists in her “Truth Book” and which later increasingly appear in the more recent dreams:

  1. Abraham was not a prophet, but a patriarch and never prophesied anything. His faith was reckoned to him as righteousness, a kind which Ernie has yet to demonstrate.
  2. Jacob was also no prophet, although he tended to lie like Ernie.
  3. David was king of Israel, and Ellen G. White only called him a prophet and messenger of God because of a personal vision of Jesus he once had. This is not the same as holding the real prophetic office. Ernie, however would like to be both king and prophet in one, and only in his lust for power can he be compared to a king.
  4. Although Peter was “cowardly”, he truly and deeply repented. Ernie's remorse, however, was only superficial and he soon began to lie worse than ever when he fell for the second time (this will be discussed in the next article).
  5. To God, it was not Moses that was a prophet but his brother Aaron: “And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.” (Exodus 7:1) He was the meekest of all people, something you cannot say about Ernie Knoll, if you have read this article. It's almost a slap in the face to God for Ernie to compare himself with Moses.
  6. Solomon was also no prophet, and only his enjoyment of money and wealth can compare to Ernie's dreamed but unjustified claims to tithes and large donations.
  7. Jonah was the only prophet in the series of repentant characters applicable to Ernie. But did he ever lie? No, quite the contrary. He wanted to lie, because he did not like what God wanted to say through him, but since he could not lie he fled from God's sight, which was just as hopeless as Ernie trying to hide in his self-invented hell-hole before awaiting his eternal punishment.

A two-week repentance is certainly not enough to immediately begin receiving new dreams again. I have talked to people who also have dreams and are Adventists. None of them would have ever dared have their dreams appear in public again after such a fall. They all would have been happy with the judgment of Jesus, if only their life were spared and they would still be allowed a chance to enter into the Kingdom. No one would ever think of just picking up right where they left off. One would have asked God to transfer the office, which was obviously too hard for the fallen, to someone else. Ernie claims to have done that, but the fact that he's lying again today and has now even published lying dreams clearly proves that his repentance was not genuine.

Ernie was the one who was the designated “director” of the ministry of the fourth angel, who should have delivered God's counsel to the leaders in a humble way like Ellen G. White had done in the past. He wanted to be in the lead, but his pride and lust for power did not allow him to be satisfied with his position. He wanted more than what God had granted him. He wanted not only the dreams, but also the understanding, the power and the top position. Nothing but the #1 position would be enough to make him happy.

Without intending to, Becky gives us an important hint in the “Truth Book” to find out what the real reason was for Ernie's first fall:

Pray for Protection

It is interesting that the last dream Ernie had before he made up Candace was dream 25, Pray for Protection. In the dream he was being tortured. When he wakes, he finds that he is pinned down and cannot speak. It is only when Becky wakes and offers to call on the name of Jesus that he is released. God gave Ernie a warning of his imminent fall, but Ernie did not recognize this warning.

What Becky is hiding from us, is a fatal relationship between dream 24 and 25. First, notice that the dream 24 The ABC was dreamed on October 24, 2007 and the following night of October 25, 2007, the physical attack of Satan on Ernie took place in Pray for Protection. Why was Satan suddenly overcoming Ernie, and why was he permitted to attack the prophet physically? It had to be something Ernie did that separated him from God to the point that Satan's hands were untied. It had to have something to do with what he had dreamed the night before, because of the obvious temporal relationship between the two dreams.

Read the dream and decide for yourself. In examining all of the previous dreams of Ernie, the possibility was never excluded that Ernie could have been not only the prophet but also the head of the 144,000, and that, along with Becky. It is very likely that Ernie believed that, and now it is even more sure than ever as all of his recent compromised dreams indicate. But the ABC dream popped Ernie's bubble and dashed his claim to power, for suddenly there appears an ominous man who will apparently be the new head of the remnant in due time... and Ernie recognizes something terrible... it is not him!

We go outside and begin walking down a sidewalk. We walk a very short way and stop. My angel puts his right hand on my shoulder and says, “God watches all.” He tells me to watch. I see a man I do not know but sense that he is a Seventh-day Adventist and well-grounded in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy. He walks past and goes into the ABC. Moments later all the employees leave the ABC with their personal belongings. As the manager walks out and passes us, I ask him what happened. He replies, “We were all told our services were no longer needed.”

The Herald now tells me to look up. The sky rolls back, angels descend and their wings fold and fold and fold again. Their appearance now changes into human form. My angel and I quickly follow the small group back into the ABC. I watch as the SDA man instructs the “angel employees” to place empty boxes onto hand trucks and put certain books into the boxes. While they are busy doing this task, the SDA man says to one of the larger angel employees, “Please get rid of that.” He is pointing to the CD, DVD and music stand. I watch as this large angel walks over, wraps his very large arms around the whole display stand and rips it from the wall with ease. We follow as he heads toward the end of the loading dock where a large dumpster sits. He hurls the display into it and smiles at me as he presses a button on the side of the dumpster. He continues smiling as this dumpster, which has a built-in compactor and chipping machine, grinds everything into small bits and then compresses it. He keeps smiling all the time while the machine is smashing and chomping the CDs and DVDs. I turn to see angels lined up with boxes of books on hand trucks. The large angel picks up a heavy box of books and throws it into the dumpster. He keeps smiling as the books are ground to pieces.

You might have noticed the clear parallel between the cleaning of the ABC by the Adventist man and the dream of William Miller which is published in Early Writings. There is also a “second Miller” to help the first, after the jewels of the former were scattered and scoured all over the floor. The second Miller comes with a broom and takes over the cleaning and arranges all of the jewels into a much larger “casket” than the first Miller had. The first Miller found his jewels in the Bible, which is represented by the standard Bible dimensions given at the beginning of the Miller's dream. The bigger “casket” of the second Miller, however, had to be something much “larger” than the Bible.

Ernie Knoll understood. One day a man would come who would have studies just like William Miller had, and would thereby clean and raise up the foundations of Adventism once again. The Adventist man whom he had seen was the second Miller, who would be the head of the remnant. This disappointed and shocked Ernie Knoll to the core so much that he purposed to fight against this man if he should ever appear. Thus, Ernie inwardly turned against God's plan and providence, and brought the separation from God that allowed Satan to attack him during the following night.

To this day, Ernie has not overcome the shock. He has long since recognized who the second Miller is, and that the second Miller has a time message like the first. Therefore, it is especially the time message that he, together with Satan, attacks to prevent this man from getting the leadership position that God has granted him. According to Ernie, this man—along with all the other heretics and opponents—must be slowly eaten by the earth and burned in hell while Ernie alone is the Senior Pastor, who will perform miraculous healings to beguile the masses.

The Orion clock, which is the Book of Seven Seals and the larger and more decorated “casket” of the second Miller, must therefore be destroyed by Ernie's God with a hammer. In The Journey Home, Ernie dreamed his big dream about the destruction of the “casket of the second Miller”:

Next I see what resembles a ball-peen hammer, but the ball part is very large. It now looks as though an invisible hand uses it to hit the face of the clock, and all the concentric circles and numbers shatter and fall from my view. All that is left is the most beautiful, glowing view of the Orion nebula.

Is this God the Father, who destroys the Orion clock with a hammer, or is it the Germanic god Thor, who has just such a hammer and is nothing more than Satan himself who wants to rise above God, and hates John Scotram because he could see the clock in Orion, which he hates as much as God Himself? Is that God the Father who turns the earth into a murderous beast, or is it Gaya, the Mother Earth of Greek mythology who makes me puke?

Now who should be “emotionally affected”? Ernie Knoll or John Scotram?

Ernie was Satan's victim, but for his own character flaws: lack of faith, pride, thirst for power, and the tendency to lie. The prophet of God turned into a prophet of Satan, as was described in the following quote from Ellen G. White:

Satan has great advantages. He possessed the wonderful intellectual power of an angel, of which few form any just idea. Satan was conscious of his power, or he would not have engaged in a conflict with the mighty God, the everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace. Satan closely watches events, and when he finds one who has a specially strong spirit of opposition to the truth of God he will even reveal to him unfulfilled events, that he may more firmly secure himself a seat in his heart. He who did not hesitate to brave a conflict with Him who holds creation as in His hand, has malignity to persecute and deceive. He holds mortals in his snare at the present time. During his experience of nearly six thousand years he has lost none of his skill and shrewdness. All this time he has been a close observer of all that concerns our race. {1TT 217.1}

In the next article I will further discuss how Ernie and Becky Knoll have worked not only against God in the form of lies and deceit, but how they eventually managed to commit the unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit and what God's judgment was regarding Ernie Knoll as early as October, 22, 2011. However, that article probably will not be published until the horrible judgments engulf the Adventist Global Church, as Ernie describes in detail in his latest dream Final Events and the First Supper. As a prophet of Satan, he knows all about the things which Satan will be allowed to bring upon the very church that he himself separated from God. Satan will probably establish his prophet by letting everything happen according to the way Ernie dreamed it under the influence of the enemy of souls.

We will know from the true Spirit of Prophecy, combined with our previously unpublished studies, when the next article has to be published. We put great effort recently into warning many in the Adventist Facebook groups, and also presented again how close we are to the wrath of God from Ezekiel 9 in the articles The End of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Christmas 2.0, but no one wanted to hear. The door to the last ark of God was closed for many Adventists, who would not accept the messages of God from Orion and the Vessel of Time, and mocked the servants of God.

Those followers of Ernie Knoll who are still not convinced by our arguments will be very surprised when we will neither be devoured by the earth nor perish in the “sulfur fires” that will descend from Ernie's father, Satan, onto the Church that he corrupted. God is doing everything to purify His church before the big final battle begins, which will decide the Great Controversy. We are anxious to see who the main players in this end-time drama will be, but I think that some of our readers already have a pretty good idea.
