Investigative judgment means no assurance of salvation.
According to SDA’s, beginning on October 22, 1844, Christ entered upon the “judgment phase” of His ministry, whereby He blots out sin.
The SDA “Investigative Judgement” doctrine rests on Ellen White’s claimed revelation that Christ entered the Holy of Holies not at His ascension, but in 1844 (The Great Controversy, p.362-373).
Hebrews 9:12 contradicts White’s theory: “by His own blood he entered (past tense) in once (not in 1844) into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.’ Hebrews 9:12,25. (v.26. ‘now once in the end of the world hath he appeared (33AD) to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself’.
SDA’s teach that Christ transferred the record of believers sins to the heavenly sanctuary, which will be finally cleansed at the conclusion of the Investigative Judgment, their day of
White says in “Patriarchs and Prophets”, p.357 this heresy: “The blood of Christ, while it was to release the repentant sinner from the condemnation of the law, was not to cancel the sin. It would stand on record in the sanctuary until the final atonement.” SDAs filter all Scripture through White’s prophecies.
Hence SDA’s sins are not cancelled or forgiven yet. What a worry. No wonder they have no assurance of salvation until the imaginary Investigative Judgment is finished.
Q: If Christ can create the universe in 6 days, why does He take from 1844 until now to investigate the books? Is Christ a slow reader?
These 6 verses show the SDA Investigative Judgment to be false:
“The Lord knoweth them that are His.” 2 Timothy 2:19.
“I know my sheep.” John 10:14
“cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9.
“he had by himself purged our sins.” Hebrews 1:3
“yet now hath he reconciled...” Colossians 1:21.
“having forgiven you all trespasses.” Colossians 2:13
Christ’s judgments are after He returns, not before: “When the Son of Man shall come in his glory then shall he sit upon the throne of His glory: and before Him shall be gathered all nations.” Matt. 25:31,32.
Hebrews 4:13 exposes the SDA limitation on Christ’s omniscience: “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Since Jesus knows all cases already, why must He
