This letter is specifically directed at Seventh-Day Adventists and the Seventh-Day Churches.
The claimed discovery of Christ blood on the Mercy Seat was made by an active Seventh-Day Adventist. Although Ron tried to cooperate with the church he eventually got rejected by the leadership and a large portion of his own people.
We are going to look at why that happened, and also some of the theological conflict areas Adventists think they face when they hear about this discovery. Only an intensive study can help us see if this discovery is false or true. Throughout time God’s own people kept rejecting the messengers sent to them. For that reason it is very important we learn WHY that happened and how we can avoid doing the same, and also how we can tell if something is of God or of the enemy.
Topics in this letter:
*Our Mentality, *The discovery of the Ark first given to the Adventist Church *Prophecies with multiple fulfillment’s. * The Day of Atonement 1. * Destroying the Adventist pillars? *To the law and to the testimony * Law concerning the sacrifice * Law concerning the blood * A prophet like Moses * The Day of Atonement * Both sacrifice and Priest. *Why the resurrection could take place *IF He did * Bible prophecies the two sprinklings * Why use the word “anoint” *At the border of the promised land *The Ark to search out a resting place *The Ark of the Covenant had many functions *Can the tables of stone be shown to the world?

Question and answers part of the letter:
Question 1: Wasn’t the High Priest only allowed into the Most Holy Place once a year? How then could Jesus enter at Passover? Question 2: How (or) does the Ark discovery fit with the 1888 message? Question 3: Why are so many crazy people sharing this discovery without the right message? Question 4: If it was from God, why didn’t God send this message to our leaders and have them properly present it to the Church? Question 5: Why many conservative adventists rejects it, arn’t they closesed to God? Question 6: These discoveries doesn’t seem to have anything to do with calling people out of Babylon? Question 7: Does God ever use archeology? Question 8: How can we tell what is of God and what is of the devil? Question 9: Wasn’t the Ark of the Covenant taken to heaven? Question 10: Did Ron Wyatt go against 1844? Question 11: Did Ron aspire to be an archeologist without the propher education, isn’t that deceptive? Question 12: How can one man find so many discoveries? Doesn’t that make it unlikely? Question 13: God would never expect us to believe in the Ark discovery before it is physically shown? Question 14: I believe in the Bible, I don’t need these things to believe. Question 15: This discovery, even if it’s true, means nothing to me personally. Question 16: How can you so boldly preach this when you haven’t seen the Ark yourself? Question 17: Who were to take over after Ron Wyatt? Question 18: Why does God tell about the Ark before He shows it? Question 19: Why is there only one witness to the Ark, doesn’t it has to be more than one in order for a truth to be established? And why hasn’t God been doing anything, adding any witnesses, since Ron died? Question 20: Maybe Ron was psycological unstable, and fooled even himself believing this discovery? That he saw things that «wasn’t there».
Who am I?
I’m not a pastor, I’m not a scholar. Nor am I a prophet. I’m not even a man. And if this instantly makes you want to disregard this whole letter I want to remind you how some of the greatest truth has come from God through simple people. I’m not saying I am one them, but what I am saying is that there might be something in this letter God would like you to know, and the only way for you to know for sure is to read it. For 25 years I have been acquainted with the discoveries of Ron Wyatt. For a long time, I have had to listen to people talk badly about the man who helped lead me to Christ and I’ve had to suffer harsh treatment by fellow Christians for believing him. But I know in my heart I did something at the beginning many others didn’t. I “searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.» (Acts 17,11) I didn’t trust anyone else to give me a conclution. I didn’t ask my pastor to study it for me. I went on my knees and I said to God: “If this discovery is true, the evidence is in the Bible. If so show me. And if this discovery is a deception, the Bible can expose it. If so, show me”. Then I got up and opened my Bible. I will present some of the things I discovered. Can I say that I got it all right? No, this letter is not meant to tell you how it should be interpreted correctly, but to present you with a material you yourself can use to pray over and study to find if some of it might just be right.
Remember when Rachel Oakes Preston first addressed the millerites with the Sabbath they were to busy to give her any notice. Later a couple of men decided to see if it weren’t so and accepted her bible study. Then Ellen White, who at that time already had received visions, were tested to see if she by study would receive the Sabbath before receiving a revelation on it. Yes God wanted even her to learn to study scripture when presented with something new. She did. Because of the pioneer’s willingness to study and pray to see if «it’s so» the church got it’s main pillar of faith, the Sabbath, in its very name. Now, please give me this time and hear me out and gather yourselves together and pray and study. Perhaps you can perfect this study? Perhaps you can add to it? Perhaps some is right and some are wrong? When God sends us any light we are obligated to do this work, to study. I cannot gather a large party of elders to study with me on these Biblical topics and then make conclutions and so I’m sending it out to you all. It’s now in your hands, please follow the council we have been given and study these things for yourselves.
English is my second language and so this letter is by no means literate perfect. But I hope the meaning will come across just fine.
