Was Ellen G. White a Modern-day Prophet? If not, God does not Exist [VIDEO]
There are many in the world today who are questioning the existence of God. I mean after all the world is falling apart all around us with earthquakes, famine, rumors of war etc. I personally have only one way to believe in God. I believe in Him because of what the Bible has told me about Him. I cannot trust the Bible unless I can prove that it is valid. The only way that I personally can show that the Bible is true is through Prophecy.
The Bible clearly shows in the book of Daniel as well as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and other books of the fall of Jerusalem and the rise of the kingdom of Babylon. As we can then read in Daniel 2, we can see that God shows a heathen king the future of the world.
The Prophecies in Daniel without a doubt layout all of the events that would unfold until the end of time. We then can see that the apostle John picks up where Daniel left off and adds greater clarity to the book of Daniel. History validates that the bible can be trusted. Prophecy is God’s way of showing that He is the only one that can foretell the future.
Having said all of that, I believe that God’s Word is trustworthy. I believe that sometime after 1798 or the Time of the End as Daniel describes that God would raise up a group He calls the Remnant in Revelation 12:17. Why does this have to be after 1798? It is because before 1798 there was no group who had the characteristics of the Remnant which are 1. Keep all of the 10 commandments and 2. Have represented among them The Testimony of Jesus Christ or as Revelation 19:10 further describes it as ‘The Spirit of Prophecy”. To be even more clear, the Remnant would have the gift of prophecy demonstrated among them.
There were 3 groups who arose around the time of 1844 which marks the final phase of the plan of salvation, the long awaited answer of the Great Controversy, the cleansing of the Most Holy Place of the Heavenly Sanctuary. Those groups were the Bahai Faith, The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The Bible shows that a remnant or a last piece of the original church that Christ, Himself, had begun in 27AD would be represented on the earth. The only one of the groups above that profess to keep the original 10 commandments as well as had a person among them that passes the tests of a biblical prophet is the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
No other group on the earth can meet the 2 characteristics of The Remnant as described in Revelation 12:17.
Why does this all matter?
Here’s why: I know of men and women that are currently members of the Seventh-day Adventist church that do not believe that Ellen White was a prophet. Then there are others that think it doesn’t matter. They disregard anything she wrote. Let me tell you something very important and I pray that my words are taken and understood in a spirit of love and you knowing as the reader that I have a burden for every soul that reads this article.
If God foretold that in the end of time, He would raise up a special group to do a special work and that He would cleanse the Sanctuary once and for all and put an end to sin, then this prophecy of the Remnant is very important because they play the main role in the last scene of this earth’s history.
If you desire to be among the group that God will soon return for, there will be only two sides in the last scene of the Bible. There will be those who choose to serve God and join His Remnant and there will be those who choose not to obey and love God and will stand against the Remnant. Only two sides we will have to choose from.
It matters because if either one of the 2 characteristics does not apply to the Church that currently makes up the Remnant, the Seventh-day Adventist Church then guess what…She is not the remnant and we should go look for the Remnant or start a new movement.
Do you realize that the Seventh-day Adventist church is the only group on the earth that rose up at the exact time of the prophecy of Daniel 8:14 at the end of the 2300 days that God said would take place and then a Remnant would arise.
If this church does not profess to keep or strive to obey God in all 10 of the commandments or if the church or your local church for that matter does not believe that Ellen G. White fulfilled the gift of the spirit of prophecy that would be demonstrated as one of the only 2 characteristics of the Remnant, then we are not the Remnant and we should look for another.
If Ellen G. White was not a prophet of God, just like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Moses, Enoch, David, Huldah, Deborah ( I had to drop a few women in there ) and the rest of the one’s who make up the many leaders of the Bible, then if she was not like them, then she is not a prophet and the Seventh-day Adventist Church is not the Remnant. The greatest prophet according to Jesus Himself was John the Baptist. A man that prepared the way for the Advent of Christ. John the Baptist never was the author of book of the Bible yet Jesus says that he was the greatest prophet.
I believe the Seventh-day Adventist Church absolutely fulfills the characteristics of The Remnant of Revelation 12:17 which was to arise after 1798. I believe that Ellen White was a prophet of God. I believe that if she was not a true prophet then the Seventh-day Adventist church is not The Remnant. If the Church is not The Remnant and I know that the Bahai Faith and Mormonism do not fulfill the characteristics of The Remnant which was to arise after 1798 and seemingly around 1844, then there is no Remnant.
If there is no Remnant, then God has abandoned the earth in the end of time. And come to think of it, if God does not have a Remnant, then I can’t trust His Word. If I can’t trust His Word, then I can’t trust when the Bible in John says ‘In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God-John 1:1
If I can’t trust that God is the Word then I can’t trust that He even exists. If His Word is not true then He is not true and He in actuality does not exist. I truly believe with all of my heart that the ministers and members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that are doubting the gift of prophecy as demonstrated through Ellen White, don’t really see how dangerous of ground they are treading. If she is no prophet, then there is no God!
Praise God His Word is trustworthy and that all that He foretold is coming to pass. Through this crisis in the last moment of earth’s history, I pray that we will pray for our brothers and sisters that are choosing to denounce God by denouncing His prophet.
The Bible shows us that the reason that the Jews asked for Barabbas was because they had denounced the prophets and only one thing happens when you denounce God’s Messengers, you soon denounce Christ.
