Ernie Knoll and the For My People Ministry
In volume one of the TRUTH, the whole TRUTH, and nothing but the TRUTH, Ernie Knoll’s critics were answered in great detail and were shown that their reasons for rejecting Ernie as a messenger of God were founded on subjective human opinions. In this volume, we turn to address the apostasy that exists within the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as instructed in Ernie’s “The Boardroom” dream. (To read the full dream, see the introduction in volume one.)

“Show how I said to not support the spiritualism which is within My church. Reveal how My church is in apostasy, but remember that I will cleanse My church. Show how it will not fall but will stand and be stronger. Show the evidence of the apostasy and the truth I have written from the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy....”
Currently, the leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are calling for revival and reformation. This should be commended, except that there is little mention about what we are to reform from. In order to have true reformation, the errors that have crept into the church must be plainly brought to view and repented of. Just as Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door of Wittenberg, so chapter one of this volume seeks to plainly reveal some of the apostasy that exists within the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Again, I was shown Martin Luther, whom God raised up to do a special work. How precious to him was the knowledge of truth revealed in the word of God! His mind was starving for something sure upon which to build his hope that God would be his Father, and heaven his home. The new and precious light which dawned upon him from the word of God was of priceless value, and he thought that if he went forth with it, he could convince the world. He stood up against the ire of a fallen church and strengthened those who with him were feasting upon the rich truths contained in the word of God. Luther was God's chosen instrument to tear off the garb of hypocrisy from the papal church and expose her corruption. He raised his voice zealously and in the power of the Holy Spirit cried out against and rebuked the existing sins of the leaders of the people. Proclamations went forth to kill him wherever he might be found; he seemed left to the mercies of a superstitious people who were obedient to the head of the Roman Church. Yet he counted not his life dear unto himself. Luther knew that he was not safe anywhere, yet he trembled not. The light which he saw and feasted upon was life to him, and was of more value than all the treasures of earth. Earthly treasures he knew would fail; but the rich truths opened to his understanding, operating upon his heart, would live, and, if obeyed, would lead him to immortality.
The church of Luther’s day rejected the call for reformation, just as the church has in most generations. Instead of accepting the messages from heaven, church leaders called for Luther’s death. Will it be different today or will history repeat itself?
The final chapter in this volume addresses a time during Ernie’s ministry where he failed to walk by faith and like so many prophets in the Bible, he fell into sin. Ernie is not proud of this time, but is so thankful that we have a merciful and loving God who looks upon the heart and sees not as man sees. We are reminded that all of us, no matter who we are, need to submit ourselves to God and resist the devil every day.
(Please note: While the TRUTH, the whole TRUTH, and nothing but the TRUTH was being prepared, the two chapters in this volume were originally known as chapters 9 and 10. To make it easier to read, it was decided to divide the book into two volumes. Volume one contains chapters 1 through 8 and volume two contains chapters 9 and 10.)
