Words of Warning From the Pen of Ellen G. White
“The world is becoming more and more lawless. Soon great trouble will arise among the nations—trouble that will not cease until Jesus comes.”—The Review and Herald, February 11, 1904.
“We are on the very verge of the time of trouble, and perplexities that are scarcely dreamed of are before us.” Testimonies for the Church 9:43 (1909).
“We are standing on the threshold of the crisis of the ages. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another—fire, and flood, and earthquake, with war and bloodshed.”—Prophets and Kings, 278 (c. 1914).
“There are stormy times before us, but let us not utter one word of unbelief or discouragement.”—Christian Service, 136 (1905).
“There are many who do not understand the prophecies relating to these days and they must be enlightened. It is the duty of both watchmen and laymen to give the trumpet a certain sound.”—Evangelism, 194, 195 (1875).
“Let the watchmen now lift up their voice and give the message which is present truth for this time. Let us show the people where we are in prophetic history.”—Testimonies for the Church 5:716 (1889).
“There is a day that God hath appointed for the close of this world’s history: “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Prophecy is fast fulfilling. More, much more, should be said about these tremendously important subjects. The day is at hand when the destiny of souls will be fixed forever…
Great pains should be taken to keep this subject before the people. The solemn fact is to be kept not only before the people of the world but before our own churches also, that the day of the Lord will come suddenly, unexpectedly.” Last Day Events, Page 16
