One of the most disturbing things about Ellen White is that she teaches that Satan ultimately bears the iniquities of the world. This is something I have refuted before by breaking down Leviticus 16 regarding the Day of Atonement. If you want more information on this I recommend you read that post. On this one I will only be focusing on one aspect of it.
Below notice that Ellen White teaches that Satan is the one bearing our sins and iniquities:
“It was seen, also, that while the sin offering pointed to Christ as a sacrifice, and the high priest represented Christ as a mediator, the scapegoat typified Satan, the author of sin, upon whom the sins of the truly penitent will finally be placed.” The Great Controversy, p. 422.
“As the priest, in removing the sins from the sanctuary, confessed them upon the head of the scapegoat, so Christ will place all these sins upon Satan, the originator and instigator of sin.”The Great Controversy, p. 485.
“Their sins are transferred to the originator of sin.” Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, p. 475.
Notice in particular she says the following:
“will finally be placed”
“place all these sins upon Satan”
The problem with this is that if our sins exist to be transferred to another to bear then that means they were not truly finished at the cross. You are looking at an incomplete atonement. Which means that in an SDA worldview, the one who truly finishes the atonement is the devil, bearing the sins of the world.
The Bible doesn’t teach this at all. Instead it says that all of our sins were placed upon Jesus Christ.
. . . and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed 1 Peter 2:24 ESV
The next day he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 ESV
“…and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6 ESV
“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit” John 19:30 ESV
“But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God” Hebrews 10:12 ESV
Not only were our iniquities placed on Christ and finished at the Cross, his work is referred to as a single sacrifice. There are not multiple sacrifices, only one for everyone. Satan doesn’t help Jesus pay for our sins like Ellen White teaches, Jesus finished it at the cross.
Because this work is complete the promise is assured now that we are saved. We do not have to wait for Satan to finish the work. It has already been done.
“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Cor 5:21 ESV
Notice that the above verse is in the past tense. This has already been completed.
“and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith” Php 3:9 ESV
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 5:24 ESV
The work of Christ is finished and applies to us right now. We do not have to wait for the completion of an investigative judgement where Satan bears our sins. Christ has already already taken them to the grave. Our sins our dead, and we are resurrected in newness of life in the shed blood of Christ. Now, not at some point in the future after trusting in Satan like Ellen White is teaching.
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 Jn 5:13 ESV
Of all of the false teachings of Ellen White this is the greatest heresy that has ever come out of her.
This above all proves that she is a false prophet and should not be feared.
