Squandering the Tithe

This and other expensive homes in the Philippines as well as very pricy land, frequent vists to resorts as well as paying for servants in the Philippine islands is where YOUR TITHE goes when Craig Kalkofen receives it.


Sister White saw exactly what Craig and Ade were doing 156 years ago. Sadly, they not only did as she saw, they embraced sin in other ways as well.

"I saw that many in different places, East and West, were adding farm to farm, and land to land, and house to house, and they make the cause of God their excuse, saying they do this that they may help the cause. They shackle themselves so that they can be of but little benefit to the cause; some buy a piece of land and labor with all their might to pay for it. Their time is so occupied that they can spend but little time to pray, and serve God, and gain strength from him to overcome their besetments. They are in debt, and when the cause needs their help they cannot assist, for they must get free from debt first. And as soon as they are free from debt they are farther from helping the cause than before, for they involve themselves again in adding to their property, and flatter themselves that this course is right, that they will use the avails in the cause, when they are actually laying up treasure here. They love the truth in word, but not in work. They love the cause just as much as their works show. They love the world more, and the cause of God less; and their attraction to earth grows stronger, and the attraction to Heaven weaker. Their heart is with their treasure. They set the example to those around them that they are intending to stay here, that this world is their home. Said the angel, "Thou art thy brother's keeper."

     I saw that many have indulged in needless expense merely to gratify the feelings, the taste, and the eye, when the cause has needed the very means, and when some of the servants of God were poorly clothed, and crippled in their labor for lack of means. Said the angel, "Their time to do will soon be past. Their works show that self is their idol, and to it they sacrifice. Self must first be gratified; their feeling is, "Am I my brother's keeper?" Warning after warning many have received, but heeded not. Self is the main object, and to it every thing must bow."  {4bSG 3.1} 1864

1. Craig's house in the Philippines. (Above Pic) This is the reason why Bro Lito left the church in the Philippines. He did not approve of how Craig used the tithe. (Click here to see house #2)

Lito asked Craig why his house is so expensive and Craig rebuked him for questioning him. But now he sold it and built a small house which means he actually agreed with Lito that the other house was way too big. But sad thing is, a soul left the church for merely asking a question. (Click here for his online sale price. (Over $1900.00 a month mortgage! That type of mortgage is expensive even in the USA and a literal mansion for most in the Philippines.)

2. Taking credit for ministry work he did not participate. I heard on his mission report before that he mentioned the medical ministry that the church did in the mountains. That was the time when Novi and Jaffel went to the Philippines to help out. Ade, the sisters and the brethren went to a small baranggay and conducted fasting and blood sugar checks, blood pressure checks and health lectures about natural remedies... but guess who wasnt there to participate? Craig... actually, he showed up for a bit to scold Ade and then disappeared.

3. Craig asked Novi to pray that the business of S_____ M____ will be sold so he will get the tithe from it.

4. Craig told Nicole that she should tithe the money that the insurance paid for her hospital bills.

5. Craig lost $4400 for the used mobile home he asked Novi to buy. He never came to see the trailer. He only looked at the pictures, when he saw it in person he didn't like it because it is not good enough for his family.

6. Craig has many helpers that he pays for using the tithe of God. He has house cleaners, gardeners, a cook, a nanny, a tutor and even a driver.. he pays them a salary every month. (There are at least 10 of them. - We were led to believe that the tithe we sent him was funding Gospel workers for years. He openly lied about this.)

7. He built a big an expensive playground for the kids, but he tore it down when the eldest daughter fell.

8. He paid for expensive landscaping and even a gazebo, 3 fish ponds as well as many plants to increase profit.

9. Every time he doesn't like his very expensive phones, Craig will contact Jaffel during the time she was in Abu Dhabi to replace his cell phone annually.

10. He checks in to the expensive hotel called " vista mar" anytime he wants.

11. He sold his old house to an unbeliever and then built a smaller home with two stories having 2 kitchens (1 downstairs and 1 upstairs). His old house had 3 bedrooms and he still built another master bedroom by using credit card. The location of the Pagan white altar he preaches from is unknown at this time.

12. Craig is now attacking Verne Bates to try and hide his sin

Craig Is Now Attacking The Original Sop Books To Prevent Being Exposed as a False Prophet:


Click here to see proof that I pulled all my comments from this video out of love for those sinning against me
But Craig was "moved" to say this as to why I deleted my comments a day or so later

Pray Craig and his entire church repents. For it is written:
Proverbs 6:16-19  These six things doth
the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  (17)  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  (18)  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  (19)  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.


We in the obedient SDR church do not promote Verne Bates the man. (He died March 09, 2017)

We promote the KJV Bible and the original Spirit of Prophecy books. just happens to be the only ones out there that print the original writings that Ellen White said would be changed by the Jesuits and then near the end brought back into their original format so as to be the a pivitol means for the Loud Cry to go forth.

Verne Bates is a normal man just like anyone else and being a man he can and has made mistakes in his life. In fact, many years ago he owned up to a mistake he made in selling a certain chart that I called him about that had error in it. He didn't create the chart as far as I recall, but he did tell me on the phone that he regreted selling that chart after he found the mistake. And so he was not afraid to admit he is wrong.

As I looked more into this video I do believe Verne was taken completely out of context. But again, Verne was never ordained and he never preached in the SDR church. We do not promote any man. Plus Verne Bates did not write the Spirit of Prophecy books. Ellen White did. She is the one under attack here. That much is now clear. Basic reality is that I never even knew Verne said what he did on that video until Craig posted it and so to claim I am in agreement is a bold faced lie.

We in the obedient Seventh Day Remnant (SDR) church promote the present truth message as it is found in Scripture as well as in the original books of Ellen White. It just so happens that the only safe place to get those books is at And so let those that hate the truth say what they will. As prophesied, the remnant people will make sure many precious souls will get their hands on KJV Bibles as well as the original Spirit of Prophecy books no matter what the wicked will say to try and stop us.

Bottom line: Craig is right now openly promoting the books that were proven to be edited by Roman Catholic Jesuits.


Please pray for Craig as he is now attacking Verne Bates using a small section of a long video he made that speaks on the Loud Cry. He cut the video short so as to prevent Verne's futher comments. Plus, the video was many years old and I knew Verne personally before he died. I know if he made mistake he always admitted them and recanted before all.

Basic reality here is, Verne didn’t write the Spirit of Prophecy books. Ellen White did. Attacking Verne to prevent the SOP books from getting out is very telling here. It is also very telling that Craig is now promoting the books that he and everyone else knows were edited by the Jesuits of Rome deep within the SDA church.

As I was doing my Bible study this morning I came across something Jesus said in His sermon that reminded me of this strange drama cultivated by Craig regarding Verne Bates and what he said about the Father. When I thought on what Craig allowed to be shown in the video I couldn't help to wonder if Verne was describing the Father in the same way Jesus did in His sermon? The fact Craig didn’t allow the entire study to be shared in his video from front to back confirms he took Verne out of context.

Notice what Jesus said in His sermon 2000 years ago. He said in Matthew 5:8 “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” And then later on Jesus said this to Philip in John 14:9, "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?"

Since Verne is dead and cannot defend himself, and seeing how all throughout history this has been a favored attack of those that have no foundation of truth to stand on, they will attack those that can prove them wrong, but only after they have died so as to prevent embarassment. Me thinks these verses from the book of John is what Verne was referring to on that day.

One more thing I was blessed with this morning which is a week or so after I shared the above blessing from the Lord. When Jesus comes it will be an amazing event, yes. But notice what Jesus said about how He will appear in this one verse. Matthew 16:27 "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works."

If you do the line upon line and precept upon precept in your daily Bible studies as we are taught to do in Isaiah 28:9-10, we come to see many instances in the Word of our God that Jesus Christ not only came to glorify the Law, He also came to glorify His Father in Heaven. But sadly, when sin is embraced, as is the case with my still beloved but lost soul Craig; the line upon line and precept upon precept is no longer how he can see the Word. Now he is moved by the dying god of this world to only look in it for ways to vindicate his sin as well as slander those that can see the Word as it was meant to be seen. This is why he makes videos attacking the obedient people of God.

And if you will notice, his other videos are chock full of satanic hollywood movies as well as the voice overs of other men who were paid to read the bible. He is no longer able to see the Word of God or understand it so as to speak of it in how it must be preached in these final days. That is what led us in the SDR church to pray back in early June of 2020. And this is what led me to pray for him in late 2018. When I saw he could no longer understand prophecy and certain doctrines I was moved by the Lord to stop sharing Craig's sermons in our church. His last sermon in the SDR church in the USA was January 19,2019.

His confusion on prophetic topics (as we spoke privately on the phone from late 2018 to June of 2020 regarding his blindness) was very concerning for me. But in June of 2020 when he shared a video with prophecies nowhere to be found inScripture but actually found in Jesuit theology, prayer was answered and we as an entire church family now knew sin was afoot. Achan was in our camp. For the only way to lose utterance and understanding to that level was to leave the living God of creation to walk with the dying god of damnation.

And yes, Verne should have explained what he meant a little better in that clearly out of context clip Craig made 3 videos about. But when you watch the entire video of Verne Bates or even look at all the other videos he has done over the years, you will see he knows for a fact that Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh, while at the same time he knows when he looks upon Jesus he sees the Father glorified. But because of sin blinding the eyes of Craig Kalkofen an unordained pastor in the so called SSR Church, he cannot see doctrine clearly and so Verne Bates will come off to him as a heretic for what Veren was sharing was meaty truth and Craig can longer understand the milk of Scripture. So be it. As propshied, some bright lights have in fact gone out.

I called Verne many years ago to ask him about an error I found in a certain chart he used to sell and he told me on the phone that he stopped selling the chart years previously because of an error he found in it. As I recall, he also told me he alerted as many as he could that he made a mistake by selling it. Verne was never afraid to admit when he was wrong. If Verne were alive today I am sure he would either admit his error or explain his thoughts in more detail regarding that statement in the video as it has actually caused confusion for some thanks to how Craig "edited" his statement. You need to watch the ENTIRE video to understand what was being taught by Verne. Still.. Verne is not the one on trial here. Ellen White is. Verne didn't write the SOP books. Ellen White did and since both her and Verne are dead, Craig saw an opportunity to cast darkness upon the truth as it is shared in Ellen White's original books and this is a must for him since he only uses her edited books.

I just found out from Marybeth (Verne's daughter) yesterday that her father printed millions of the original books from 1955 until his death in 2017. As we now know, the Jesuits that infiltrated the SDA church edited the original books to hide the truth and many SDA leaders with Jesuit ties persecute and even kick people out of the church that promote the original books because they fear the truth that exposes them in those books. We have proven the SDA church changed the books in detail in this series of videos. Something Craig would never do. He has openly stated to me more than one time he sees nothing wrong with the edited books. So be it, his fruits already revealed that to us.

As we also discovered recently; for many years and even after learning about the original books and the amazing truths contained therein, Craig Kalkofen refused to use those books just like the SDA leaders have refused for decades. He only preached and taught from the books that the Jesuits edited even after he was warned with the rock hard evidence we presented. This is why Craig’s videos on prophecy are such a jumbled mess today. And so it appears he is doing as he is to prevent the people that donate to him from seeing the original books for he knows if they read them and discover the changes that agree with Roman Catholic theology, they will come to realize that Craig is a confirmed false prophet just like all that have done their studies know in the SDR church.

As we also know Craig was caught and refused to repent of many blatant sins against God and His truth to the point his rebellion grew to where he saw no sin in committing adultery with a 12 year old girl. He is now trying to slander the SDR people who followed the Lord’s command in 1 Timothy 5:19-21 wherein when a leader sins and refuses to repent we are to rebuke them before all so others will fear to do the same. He refuses to step down as pastor. But it is plainly written...

What we discern here is that if Craig can make us look bad for promoting Verne Bates, even though Bates never once preached a single sermon in an SDR church, Craig hopes his slander will bring donations back to him by making us look like we agree with Verne on a mistake he made, which of course we do not. This page alone confirms his motive for attacking us and Verne.

For Craig to attack the original unedited books of Ellen White for the sole purpose of trying to pull babes in Christ out of the SDR church shows just how far he has fallen. Craig’s sin has grown so blatant now that Satan is able to use Craig and his lust for money to try and stop the circulation of the original books in his area because they are the means by which the Loud Cry goes forth. Notice this…

Craig is right now fighting against the God of the Bible and His long prophesied final message of mercy unto the world. No, we do not believe Craig realizes this. Sin not only blinds the prophetic and doctrinal eye. It also blinds the man from seeing how Satan is using him. So please pray for Craig. The Lord will deal with him
very soon. Of this I am sure. Please pray for him and his wife and precious children. His many unrepentant sins confirm that he needs much prayer. It is written in Hebrews 10:31 that “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” And so again.. please pray.

The Loud Cry is about to begin and so right now Craig is being used by Satan to try and prevent it from going forth in his area so as to prevent his people from seeing he is a false prophet. Sister White literally prophesied that her books would be changed, but Craig ignores this with anger as his recent claims against Ellen White's writings confirm. She said this long ago.

These "books of a new order" were written by the Jesuits and these are the very books Craig now uses when he preaches unto the poor souls trapped in his church. He may claim we promote Verne Bates without a shred of proof, in the same way he preaches prophecy without a Bible verse to back it up. But just as we have Scripture to back up the truth we preach, we have rock hard evidence that he promotes the books of the Jesuits as well.

We tried for weeks to get Craig and Ade to do the right thing before going public. Instead of repenting and standing before the church family that brought forth many witnesses against Craig Kalkofen back in June, he decided to dig in his heals and use the deceptive tools of Satan to hide his sins instead of running to the light filled blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ to help him back unto the path to heaven. All that Craig is doing to hide his sins has failed. Many; and soon all that need to know of his failings, will know of them as per 1 Timothy 5:19-21. This is why he is on the attack. Many witnesses came forth as well as some that at first agreed to cover up his sin - but now, some do admit they sinned for him.

Please share this with those you believe need to see it.


"Our God is a jealous God. It is fearful to trifle with him. Anciently, Achan coveted a golden wedge, and a Babylonish garment, and secreted them, and all Israel suffered. They were driven before their enemies. And when Joshua inquired the cause, the Lord said, "Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against the morrow; for thus saith the Lord God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you." Achan had sinned, and God destroyed him, and all his household, with all they possessed, and wiped the curse from Israel.  {4bSG 24.2}  

     I saw that the Israel of God must arise, renew their strength in God by renewing and keeping their covenant with him. Covetousness, selfishness, love of money, and love of the world, are all through the ranks of Sabbath-keepers. These evils are drying up the sacrifice of God's people. Those that have this covetousness in their hearts are not aware of it. It has gained upon them imperceptibly. And unless it is rooted out, their destruction will be as sure as Achan's was. Many have taken the sacrifice from God's altar, and they love the world, love its gain and increase, and unless there is an entire change they will perish with the world. God has lent them means. It is not their own; but God has made them his stewards. And because of this, they call it their own, and hoard it up. But oh, how quick, when the prospering hand of God is removed from them, is it all snatched away in a moment. There must be a sacrificing for God, a denying self for the truth's sake. Oh, how weak and frail is man. How puny his arm. I saw that soon the loftiness of man is to be brought down, and the pride of man humbled. Kings and nobles, rich and poor, alike shall bow, and the withering plagues from God shall fall upon them." {4bSG 25.1}  

As much as we love Craig and his wife, we had to obey the Lord as per 1 Timothy 5:19-21. And praise the Lord, as soon as we in the SDR church obeyed our King Jesus and cast Craig and his wife from the SDR camp, the Lord confirmed His will unto us by blessing our work in a mighty way that soon many precious souls will hear the present truth.

Had Craig remained obedient he would have been able to partake in this prophesied work with many blessed duties that glorify the Lord. He could have been used by the Lord in a mighty way. But as many witnesses have now declared, he chose a different path and is now being used by Satan to attack that which the Lord declared though His prophet will help many escape damnation right before the plagues begin. So be it. As prophesied, many bright lights were to go out.

For it was also declared in SOP the following...

"I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen, and was shown that it would be caused by the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the True Witness to the Laodiceans. This will have its effect upon the heart of the receiver, and will lead him to exalt the standard and pour forth the straight truth. Some will not bear this straight testimony. They will rise up against it, and this will cause a shaking among God's people.  There are those among us who will make confessions, as did Achan, too late to save themselves." -1T 181 (1857).  {LDE 175.3}

"When the shaking comes, by the introduction of false theories, these surface readers, anchored nowhere, are like shifting sand. They slide into any position to suit the tenor of their feelings of bitterness." -TM 112 (1897).

Please pray that Craig repents before the Lord that never changes does the same to him and "all his household" as He did to Achan when he mocked the Lord. Our God is not one to be mocked. Craig has done exactly as Achan did long ago and worse. But hopefully he still has time to do the right thing before the hand of God falls upon him and his house. Please pray for him, his wife and his precious children. For "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." -Hebrews 10:31

Brother Don's Eyewitness Account of Squandering the tithe:

Okay, based on my experience as a worker before, what I observed why there's so many workers who just keep following Craig and Ade if we dont have a leader only Christ based in Colossians 1:18, of course I know craig is a minister and same with my father, I know where they get support for everyday's food. Nothing personal but based on my observation, they have so many nannies for their kids in Cebu, so many to support, including Jonah my sister whom I told her if you are a worker for the Lord why are you working as a nanny watching their kids? Maybe the Lord will ask for recompense. And then before they will tell the workers in the field you need to budget your $70-$80/mo allowance. I did my best to make it work. The time they asked me to go to Cebu I saw the electric bill of Craig and Ade was $400+ while ours in the field our electric bills was 20$ and we were questioned why our bill was a lot. I just let it passed.

And then I have so many Bible studies pending , because there is no budget, pending handing out tracts because there was no budget, but I didnt know the truth so we just waited when we can have a budget again to do the work, I questioned myself where did we do wrong? God's promise is that if we will do the work He will suppport us, we know God has money why He will allow to hinder the work and deplete the budget for the workers in the field?

One thing also including my parents, what I observed, they always rely on Cebu church, they will say we will let Cebu know our needs, so I told them, we are different church here in the farm church, Cebu is also different, we should learn to stand as a church without manipulation from Cebu.

Please extend my greetings to the brethren in the US. We will pray for each other, and Im praying that with the help of God we will endure. We pray that Christ character will reflect in our lives because thats what God is waiting from His people , COL 69.1 When the Character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in his people, then He will come to claim them as His own.

His stand regarding the teachings: (He agrees with us)

Thats right, the wicked wont die until Christ comes back, the wicked will still gather together during the 6th plague thats why the river euphrates was dried up, so the people are gathering as one and then Revelation 17:12-16  is during the 6th plague, that was the only time they were given power

the wicked during the plagues are suffering thats why they are doing their best to kill the righteous people  because they are blaming them for all the plagues they received, thats why they will gather together to kill the righteous

Yes, during the time of trouble is when the death decree will be imposed, during the 6th plague if im not mistaken , because the kings of this earth are going to gather, thats also my understanding, tell me if im wrong

hehehe, what we read is thousands of people will be converted during Sunday Law, how can we convert if we are scared to preach because there is a death decree already? of course we understand why because salvation is still open during that time and there are still preachers during that time

The enforcement of Sunday law is for them to find out and monitor who are the sabbath keeping people, theres no death decree yet although there will be martirs

Even before I already told my mom that you need to have your own studies do not rely everthing on Craig and ade. Because if I have questions for them they will say just wait I will ask Ade about this. Why rely on human being for your salvation? our salvation we should not depend on others, we should search.

oh, so my parents believed in lies and also the brethren? thats not good, I would not allow that they will continue believing those studies manipulated by a person that is not trustworthy, anyways, I know my father, we are used  to live poor, we will continue to live

I rebuked my mom before, why every time they hand out tracts, they will go to the resort to swim, I told them what you guys did is not right, why do you have time to do happy2 when the budget for God's work is drained, you have time to happy2? night swimming, they brought me with them after the campmeeting I wasnt pleased.

I told my mom before, maybe you can give ade and craig advise, why build a house a big house in cebu, very expensive, cost millions of peso, maybe the enemy will make issue about it , and then my parents will say ah thats their money because craig's parents give much. I said, we want the work to be done fast but they are busy renovating their house.
