Thank You, Lord
Not long ago it was my intent to write an article(s) called “Debunking the Debunker’s of Ellen White”. Point by point. And why? because I wanted to stick up for Ellen White’s writings. Sometimes people need defending. And sometimes…enough is just that…Enough! I think that may be called, “zeal”?
I will tell you that it would have been quite an undertaking. Not because it can’t be done easily, but it would be time consuming. And this writing business isn’t always easy. Though mostly…for me it usually is. Did I say mostly? : ) 23 revisions and counting…
At this point in time, I can personally see right through things that are written against this dear woman who was, and remains a prophet of the Lord now. It hasn’t always been that way. And it was quite upsetting. But…I have found that if you scratch the surface of such attacks, the lies will come into view.
A lot of these claim to be ex-Adventist’s. And maybe they are? Who…also state that they had been in the church for a number of years. And some, of course are from other sources.
Do I believe that Ellen White was and is a true prophet of God. Well, as a matter of fact….yes I do. Her writings are as pertinent today as they were when they were written. Some much more so, prophetically speaking.
One day, after I was listening to something Ellen White said, I was thinking “I have to talk to Ellen White”. Then, I was thinking…silly me, you can’t talk to her…she’s dead. That’s how alive…what she said, was to me in that moment. Wow.
When I read or, listen to what she wrote…it’s like the tenderness of a loving mother telling me things about the Lord. That’s how I can best describe it.
I guess I can finally get to why I’m writing this… I found a couple of sermons? that had been already been done on the subject. It’s two parts. I have scheduled one for this week. And one for next week. They don’t cover every aspect of what is being said of course, but a few of the most common attacks.
When I have personally read some things people have “said” that Ellen White wrote, and then, read what she “actually” wrote (in context) it is miles apart. Honestly. If you don’t want to take my word for it…and that’s okay…check it out for yourselves. In fact, I think you should. Oh and I promise, I won’t be offended. Not in the least.
Lastly, we all need to be reminded that the Devil walks around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Everyone is on his list. Christians?…at the top of the list.
And then, there is this….
1 Peter 1:7 KJV
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ…
