Early writings P 54-56
And I saw a throne and on it sat the father and
the son, I gazed at Jesuss countenance and
admired his lovely person, the Fathers person I
could not behold because a cloud of glorious
light covered him. I asked Jesus if the Father
had a form like himself, he said he had but I
cannot behold it for said he if you should once
behold the glory of his person you will cease to
exist. Before the throne I saw the advent people,
the church and the world and I saw two
32
companies, one bowed down before the throne
deeply interested while the others stood
uninterested and careless. Those who were bowed
before the throne will offer up their prayers and
look to Jesus then he will look to his Father and
appear to be pleading with him. A light will come
from the Father to the Son and from the son to
the praying company. Then I saw an exceeding
bright light come from the father to the son and
from the son, It waved over the people before the
throne but a few will receive this great light
33
Many came out from under it and immediately
resisted it, others were careless and did not
cherish the light and it was removed from them.
it went and bowed down with the little praying
company. This company all received the light and
rejoiced in it and their countenance shone in its
glory. I saw the father rise from the throne and
in a flaming chariot go into the holy of holies
within the vail and sit down then Jesus rose up
from the throne and most of those who were bowed
down arose with him. I did not see one ray of
light pass through the careless multitude after
he rose,
34
they were left in perfect darkness. Those who
arose when Jesus did kept their eyes fixed on him
as they left the throne And led them out a little
way. Then he raised his right arm and heard the
lovely voice saying wait here. I am going to my
Father to receive my kingdom. Keep your garments
spotless and in a little while I will return from
the wedding and receive you to myself. Then a
cloudy chariot with wheels like flaming fire
surrounded by angels came to where Jesus was. He
stepped in the chariot and was born to the
holiest where the father sat
35
There I beheld Jesus a great high priest standing
before the Father on the hem of his garment was a
bell and a pomegranate. those who rose up with
Jesus will send up their faith to Jesus and will
pray my father give us your spirit then Jesus
will breath upon them the holy ghost. In that
breath was light, power and much love, joy and
peace. I turn to look towards the company that
were still bowed before the throne, they did not
know that Jesus had left it. Satan appeared to be
by the throne. I
36
saw them look towards the throne and say Father
give us thy spirit. Satan will then breath upon
them an unholy influence in it was light and much
power but no sweet joy and Peace. Satans object
was to keep them deceived and to draw them back
and deceive Gods children.
Early writings p54 p56 Ellen G White
37
The Saints must get a thorough understanding of
present truth, which they will be obliged to
maintain from the scriptures. They must
understand the state of the dead, for the Spirits
of devils will yet appear to them, professing to
be beloved friends and relatives, who will
declare to them that the Sabbath has been
changed, also other unscriptural doctrines. EW 87
(1854)
38
The things you have described as taking place in
Indiana, the Lord has shown me would take place
just before the close of probation. Every uncouth
thing will be demonstrated. There will be
shouting, with drums, music and noise. The senses
of rational beings will become so confused that
they cannot be trusted to make right decisions A
bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts
that which if conducted aright might be a
blessings. The powers of Satanic agencies blend
with the din and the noise to have a carnival,
and this is termed as the Holy Spirit
workingThose things which have been in the past
will be in the future. Satan will make a music a
snare by the way it is conducted. 2SM 36, 38
(1900)
39
Fanaticism, false excitement, false talking in
tongues, and noisy exercises have bee considered
gifts which God has placed in the church. Some
have been deceived here. The fruits of all this
have not been good. Ye shall know them by their
fruits. Fanaticism and noise have been
considered special evidence of faith. Some are
not satisfied with a meeting unless they have a
powerful happy time. They work for this and get
up an excitement of feeling. But the influence of
such meeting is not beneficial. When the happy
flight of the feeling is gone they sink lower
that before the meetings because their happiness
did not come from the right source
40
The most profitable meetings for spiritual
advancement are those which are characterized
with solemnity and deep searching of heart, each
seeking to know himself earnestly and in deep
humility seeking to learn of Christ. 1T 412
(1864)
41
The thing that hath been done, it is that which
shall be and that which is done is that which
shall be done and there is no new thing under
the sun Ecc 19
42
There is a work of sacred importance for
ministers and people to do. They are to study the
history of the cause and people of God. They are
not to forget the past dealing of God with His
people. They are to revive and recount the truths
that have come to seem of little value to those
who do not know by personal experience of the
power and brightness that accompanied them when
they were first seen and understood. In all their
original freshness and power these truths are to
be given to the world. Selected Messages, book
1, 157.
43
We have nothing to fear for the future, except as
we shall forget the way the Lord has led us, and
his teaching in our Past history. LS196 (1902)

  • Temptations are being brought in by men who
    have been long in the truth. The truths that we
    received in 1841, 42, 43, and 44 are now to be
    studied and proclaimed. The messages of the
    first, second, and third angels will in the
    future be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will
    be given with earnest determination and in the
    power of the Spirit.
  • Manuscript Releases, volume 15, 317.

45
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion
roareth and when he cried, seven thunders
uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders
had uttered their voices, I was about to write
and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
seal up those things which the seven thunders
uttered and write them not. Rev 103-4
46
The special light given to John which was
expressed in the seven thunders was a delineation
of events which would transpire under the first
and second angels messages. It was best not for
the people to know these things for their faith
must necessarily be tested. In the order of God
most wonderful and advanced truths were to be
proclaimed, but no further light was to be
revealed until they have done their specific
work The Seventh-day Adventist Bible
Commentary, volume 7, 971.
47
The First Angels Message
The Advent movement of the 1840-1844 was a
glorious manifestation of the power of God the
first and second angels message was carried to
every missionary station in the world. GC 611
48
Second Angels Message
As the churches rejected refused to receive the
first angels message, they rejected the light
from heaven and fell from favour of God. They
trusted in their own strength and by opposing the
first angels message placed themselves were they
could not see the light of the second angels
message. But the beloved of God who were
oppressed and accepted the message Babylon is
fallen, and the left the churches. (EW 237)
In June 1842 MR Miller gave his second course
of lectures at the Casco street in Portland
Maine with few exceptions, the different
denominations closed the doors of the Churches to
Mr Miller Testimonies Volume 1,21
49
Third Angels Message
At the ministration of the Jesus closed in the
Holy place, and he passed into the holies, and
stood before the ark containing the law of God,
He sent another mighty angel with a third message
to the world. A parchment was placed in the
angels hand, and he descended to the earth in
power and majesty, he proclaimed a fearful
warning, with the most terrible threatening ever
borne to man. EW P254
50
God has given the messages of Revelation14 their
place in the line of prophecy, and their work is
not to cease till the close of this earths
history. The first and second angels messages
are still truth for this time, and are to run
parallel with this which follows. The third angel
proclaims his warning with a loud voice. After
these things, said John, I saw another angel
come down from heaven, having great power, and
the earth was lightened with his glory. In this
illumination, the light of all the three messages
is combined. The1888 Materials, 804.
51
  • After these seven thunders uttered their
    voices, the injunction comes to John as to Daniel
    in regard to the little book Seal up those
    things which the seven thunders uttered. These
    relate to future events which will be disclosed
    in their order
  • The Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary,
    volume 7, 971.

52
Rev 2210 And he saith unto me, Seal not the
sayings of the prophecy of this book for the
time is at hand.
Rev 2211 He that is unjust, let him be unjust
still and he that is filthy, let him be filthy
still and he that is righteous let him be
righteous still and he that is holy, let him be
holy still

Much of the History taken place in fulfilment of
this prophecy will be repeated. In the thirtieth

done? By forcing men to accept a spurious
Sabbath. 8T 94 (1904) LDE 198.2 -Not yet however,
can it be said thatshe made all nations drink
of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. She
has not yet made all nations do this LDE 198.3
-Not until this condition shall be reached, and
the union of the church with the world shall be
fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will
the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a
progressive one, and the perfect fulfilment of
Revelation 148 is future. GC 389,390 (1911).

Third angels message will not be comprehended
There is to be in the Seventh Day Adventist
churches a wonderful manifestation of the power
of God, but it will not move upon those who have
not humbled themselves before the Lord, and
opened the door of the heart by confession and
repentance. In the manifestation of that power
which lightens the earth with the glory of God,
they will see only something which in their
blindness they think dangerous, something which
will arose their fears, and they will brace
themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does
not walk according to their ideas and
expectations they will appose the work. Why,
they say, should we not know the Spirit of God,
when we have been in the work so many years?
LDE 209.3
59
The third angels message will not be
comprehended, the light which will lighten the
earth with its glory will be called a false
light, by those who refuse to walk in its
advancing glory LDE 210.1
60
  • In a special sense Seventh Day Adventists have
    been set in the world as light bearers. To them
    has been entrusted the last warning for a
    perishing world. On them is shining a wonderful
    light from God. They have been given a work of
    the most solemn important the proclamation of
    the first, second and third angels messages.
    There is no other work of great importance. They
    are to allow nothing else to absorb their Mind

Testimonies, Volume 9,19.
61
  • The Ellen G. White 1888 Materials (1987), page
    1078, paragraph 6
  • The influence of these messages has been
    deepening and widening, setting in motion the
    springs of action in thousands of hearts,
    bringing into existence institutions of learning,
    publishing houses, and health institutions all
    these are the instrumentalities of God to
    co-operate in the grand work represented by the
    first, second, and third angels flying in the
    midst of heaven to warn the inhabitants of the
    world that Christ is coming again with power and
    great glory. The prophet says, "I saw another
    angel come down from heaven, having great power
    and the earth was lightened with his glory. And
    he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying,
    Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is
    become the habitation of devils." This is the
    same message that was given by the second angel.
    Babylon is fallen, "because she made all nations
    drink of the wine of the wrath of her
    fornication." What is that wine?--Her false
    doctrines. She has given to the world a false
    Sabbath instead of the Sabbath of the fourth
    commandment, and has repeated the falsehood that
    Satan first told to Eve in Eden.--the natural
    immortality of the soul. Many kindred errors she
    has spread far and wide, "teaching for doctrines
    the commandments of men."

thing will be demonstrated. There will be
shouting, with drums, music and noise. The senses
of rational beings will become so confused that
they cannot be trusted to make right decisions A
bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts
that which if conducted aright might be a
blessings. The powers of Satanic agencies blend
with the din and the noise to have a carnival,
and this is termed as the Holy Spirit
workingThose things which have been in the past
will be in the future. Satan will make a music a
snare by the way it is conducted. 2SM 36, 38

Fanaticism, false excitement, false talking in
tongues, and noisy exercises have bee considered
gifts which God has placed in the church. Some
have been deceived here. The fruits of all this
have not been good. Ye shall know them by their
fruits. Fanaticism and noise have been
considered special evidence of faith. Some are
not satisfied with a meeting unless they have a
powerful happy time. They work for this and get
up an excitement of feeling. But the influence of
such meeting is not beneficial. When the happy
flight of the feeling is gone they sink lower
that before the meetings because their happiness
did not come from the right source
40
The most profitable meetings for spiritual
advancement are those which are characterized
with solemnity and deep searching of heart, each
seeking to know himself earnestly and in deep
humility seeking to learn of Christ. 1T 412

There is a work of sacred importance for
ministers and people to do. They are to study the
history of the cause and people of God. They are
not to forget the past dealing of God with His
people. They are to revive and recount the truths
that have come to seem of little value to those
who do not know by personal experience of the
power and brightness that accompanied them when
they were first seen and understood. In all their
original freshness and power these truths are to
be given to the world. Selected Messages, book
1, 157.

We have nothing to fear for the future, except as

  • Temptations are being brought in by men who
    have been long in the truth. The truths that we
    received in 1841, 42, 43, and 44 are now to be
    studied and proclaimed. The messages of the
    first, second, and third angels will in the
    future be proclaimed with a loud voice. They will
    be given with earnest determination and in the
    power of the Spirit.

And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion
roareth and when he cried, seven thunders
uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders
had uttered their voices, I was about to write
and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me,
seal up those things which the seven thunders
uttered and write them not. Rev 103-4
46
The special light given to John which was
expressed in the seven thunders was a delineation
of events which would transpire under the first
and second angels messages. It was best not for
the people to know these things for their faith
must necessarily be tested. In the order of God
most wonderful and advanced truths were to be
proclaimed, but no further light was to be
revealed until they have done their specific
work The Seventh-day Adventist Bible
Commentary, volume 7, 971.

The First Angels Message
The Advent movement of the 1840-1844 was a
glorious manifestation of the power of God the
first and second angels message was carried to
every missionary station in the world. GC 611
48
Second Angels Message
As the churches rejected refused to receive the
first angels message, they rejected the light
from heaven and fell from favour of God. They
trusted in their own strength and by opposing the
first angels message placed themselves were they
could not see the light of the second angels
message. But the beloved of God who were
oppressed and accepted the message Babylon is
fallen, and the left the churches. (EW 237)
In June 1842 MR Miller gave his second course
of lectures at the Casco street in Portland
Maine with few exceptions, the different
denominations closed the doors of the Churches to

Third Angels Message
At the ministration of the Jesus closed in the
Holy place, and he passed into the holies, and
stood before the ark containing the law of God,
He sent another mighty angel with a third message
to the world. A parchment was placed in the
angels hand, and he descended to the earth in
power and majesty, he proclaimed a fearful
warning, with the most terrible threatening ever
borne to man. EW P254
50
God has given the messages of Revelation14 their
place in the line of prophecy, and their work is
not to cease till the close of this earths
history. The first and second angels messages
are still truth for this time, and are to run
parallel with this which follows. The third angel
proclaims his warning with a loud voice. After
these things, said John, I saw another angel
come down from heaven, having great power, and
the earth was lightened with his glory. In this
illumination, the light of all the three messages
is combined. The1888 Materials, 804.

  • After these seven thunders uttered their
    voices, the injunction comes to John as to Daniel
    in regard to the little book Seal up those
    things which the seven thunders uttered. These
    relate to future events which will be disclosed
    in their order

wrath of her fornication Rev 146-8 -How is this
done? By forcing men to accept a spurious
Sabbath. 8T 94 (1904) LDE 198.2 -Not yet however,
can it be said thatshe made all nations drink
of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. She
has not yet made all nations do this LDE 198.3
-Not until this condition shall be reached, and
the union of the church with the world shall be
fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will
the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a
progressive one, and the perfect fulfilment of
Revelation 148 is future. GC 389,390 (1911).

Third angels message will not be comprehended
There is to be in the Seventh Day Adventist
churches a wonderful manifestation of the power
of God, but it will not move upon those who have
not humbled themselves before the Lord, and
opened the door of the heart by confession and
repentance. In the manifestation of that power
which lightens the earth with the glory of God,
they will see only something which in their
blindness they think dangerous, something which
will arose their fears, and they will brace
themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does
not walk according to their ideas and
expectations they will appose the work. Why,
they say, should we not know the Spirit of God,
when we have been in the work so many years?
LDE 209.3
59
The third angels message will not be
comprehended, the light which will lighten the
earth with its glory will be called a false
light, by those who refuse to walk in its
advancing glory LDE 210.1

  • In a special sense Seventh Day Adventists have
    been set in the world as light bearers. To them
    has been entrusted the last warning for a
    perishing world. On them is shining a wonderful
    light from God. They have been given a work of
    the most solemn important the proclamation of
    the first, second and third angels messages.
    There is no other work of great importance. They
    are to allow nothing else to absorb their Mind

  • The influence of these messages has been
    deepening and widening, setting in motion the
    springs of action in thousands of hearts,
    bringing into existence institutions of learning,
    publishing houses, and health institutions all
    these are the instrumentalities of God to
    co-operate in the grand work represented by the
    first, second, and third angels flying in the
    midst of heaven to warn the inhabitants of the
    world that Christ is coming again with power and
    great glory. The prophet says, "I saw another
    angel come down from heaven, having great power
    and the earth was lightened with his glory. And
    he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying,
    Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is
    become the habitation of devils." This is the
    same message that was given by the second angel.
    Babylon is fallen, "because she made all nations
    drink of the wine of the wrath of her
    fornication." What is that wine?--Her false
    doctrines. She has given to the world a false
    Sabbath instead of the Sabbath of the fourth
    commandment, and has repeated the falsehood that
    Satan first told to Eve in Eden.--the natural
    immortality of the soul. Many kindred errors she
    has spread far and wide, "teaching for doctrines
    the commandments of men."
