Last Day Events
Ellen White
To The Reader

Seventh-day Adventists believe they have been especially called of god to proclaim the good news of Christ's soon coming to a confused and dying world. "great pains," Ellen White wrote, "should be taken to keep this subject before the people" (FE 336). In her book the great controversy between Christ and Satan, she graphically outlined the grand and dreadful events of the future. There is no other book like it. Maranatha, a 1976 book compiled from her writings, also deals with the fulfillment of last-day bible prophecies.

As a further effort to "keep this subject before the people," we have prepared the present volume, last day events. Many of the citations in this book have been drawn from previously published Ellen white sources, but a fair percentage of the materials have never before been published. While we have not included all of Ellen White's statements on earth's closing events, we have endeavored to include the most significant ones.

At the close of each excerpt, we have provided a source credit as well as the date when the passage was written, or a date when it was published during Ellen White's lifetime. We also have included a few footnotes, where we have thought that additional information or explanations would be helpful.

We have attempted to present Ellen White's teachings on end-time events in a logical arrangement.

However, we do not claim that we have listed all future events in the exact order of their occurrence. In a matter of such great importance as the experience of god's people in the days ahead, when everyone will have to stand alone, "as though there were not another person in the world" (7bc 983), it is essential that all Christians have their own convictions, based upon their own study and their own personal relationship with the lord.

Ellen white declares that "our little world is the lesson book of the universe" (DA 19), and that the invisible world is watching "with inexpressible interest" (PK 148) the closing scenes of this world's history. May we all endeavor to catch something of the significance of earth's climactic events as we view them in their relation to the great controversy between good and evil. And may we share with others the glorious truth that Jesus is coming soon.

By: Ellen G. WhiteStudy Guide Index Chapter 1pages 11-171. Ellen White uses several phrases on page 11:"Something great and decisive is about to take place""The world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis""Great changes are soon to take place in our world""The final movements will be rapid ones"Was the end really near in Ellen White's lifetime?2. Note some of the things Ellen White predicted as yet future: "spirit of war," "lawlessness,""perplexities," "judgments of God--fire, flood, earthquake, war." How many are yet future now? (12)3. Review some Bible experiences when human beings responded to God's warnings of coming judgment. Lot and Noah are examples. (13:2)4. Why were Jesus' disciples unprepared for His death? What lesson is there for us at the present? (13:3)5. What two Bible books should have our special attention today? (15:3)6. What chapter in Daniel is especially important now? (15:4)7.
When
will the end come? (16:4)8. What are we counseled about dwelling on the time of trouble ahead of time? Why? (17:4)Chapter 2
 
pages 18-311. Read Matthew 24.2. Of what is the destruction of Jerusalem a prophetic type? (18:1)
 
3. What is our safeguard against the deceptions taught by false prophets? (20:3)
 
4. In what way are the last days similar to the days of Noah? (23:2)
 
5. How are we to understand the statements that wars are a sign of Jesus' soon return when the world isnow entering a period of peace, a sense of global community, and a new world order? (24:1, 2)
 
 
6. Are the natural disasters taking place now a fulfillment of the predictions given on pages 25:2-26:3, or are we to expect calamities that are more disastrous?
 
7. Why does God permit the several natural calamities predicted by Ellen White? (28:2, 3)
 
8. On the basis of 29:5-30:0, develop a Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of history.
 
Chapter 3
 
pages 32-421. EGW declares unequivocally, repeatedly, that the
last 
date in historical time thatcan be established from
any 
Bible prophecy is:___________________. (35:3-36:2)2. SDAs are told NOT to attempt to supply "day and date" for the occurrence of ANY as-yet "___________________ " (35:2); three particular events are especially singled out as examples:a. ___________________ (33:0, 1, 3, 4; 34:1)b. The outpouring of the ___________________(33:1)c. The close of ___________________ (35:3)3. EGW bluntly characterized the time-setters of her day (as well as ours) as:a. "___________________ " because of their "many successive failures." (34:1)b. "___________________. " (34:1)c. "___________________ ones" (35:0); participants in "___________________ and ___________________ movements." (35:2)d. "They were in "___________________" (35:3), and were "doing the work of ___________________ of  ___________________." (35:3)4. What is the
implication
of these two statements concerning time-setters:a. They "
called 
themselves Seventh-day Adventists" (32:3) (Emphasis supplied)Implication:b. SDAs "who
claim
to be led of God" (35:2) (Emphasis supplied)Implication:5. What negative results did EGW identify as following in the wake of time-setting?a. Among worldings:(1) "In a ___________________ state of ___________________ than before." (34:3)(2) They view time-setters with "___________________." (34:3)(3) "They turn away from the truth" that "the ___________________ of all ___________________ is athand. (34:3)b. Within the remnant church:(1) They lead into "false lines," thus causing "___________________ and ___________________."(35:2)(2) They create an unhealthy "excitement" which, in turn, ___________________ Holy Spirit. (35:0)c. With Satan:The enemy is ___________________. (35:2)6. In assigning various reasons for the delay of Christ's return, EGW identified:a. Specific sins (many of which delayed Israel's entrance into Canaan by 40 years):(1) ___________________ (2) ___________________ (3) ___________________ (4) ___________________ (5) ___________________ (6) ___________________ (38:1)
 
(7) ___________________ (39:1)b. The "___________________ " of "___________________ " must be "___________________"reproduced in Christ's people before "He will come to claim them as His own." (39:2)c. The gospel must be given to the ___________________ before Christ can return to earth. (38:2; 39:4;37:5)d. The "image to the beast" (Rev. 13:14-17; 14:9-11) must be formed before Jesus comes. This fills thenational "cup of iniquity," and will take the form of a legislative enactment (law) that requires Christians toabstain from work and to engage in religious worship on ___________________. (40:1)7. Christ could have come in the 19th century (indeed, EGW expected it in her own lifetime); but it hasbeen postponed to our time (for reasons listed above in #6); but it is abundantly clear that the delaywas
not 
caused by a
failure
in the ___________________ of 
God.
(38:1)8. Christians actively preparing for the second coming of Christ will educate themselves to be"___________________ and ___________________ upon the scenes of the [final] ___________________" of this world. (41:5) The Christian will "___________________ with God" daily,in an attitude of "___________________ and ___________________" (42:5)."Jesus would have us keep ever before" our minds "an awareness of the ___________________ time,"for "the is ___________________ near." (42:6)THOUGHT QUESTIONS as you reflect upon Chapter 3 as a whole:
 
1. Peter declares that Christians may actually "hasten" (or, by implication, also "hinder") the return of Jesus (2 Peter 3:12); while Paul declares that God has already "appointed a day" for the final judgment of the world (Acts 17:31). EGW also sets forth both motifs--which, for many, seem contradictory, mutuallyexclusive. Can you harmonize this seeming discrepancy? If so, how?2. According to EGW, both the promises and threatenings of God are alike conditional (38:3), andthe
time
for the 2nd Coming was conditional (36-38). What assurance do you find in Nahum 1:9 thatthe
fact 
of the 2nd Coming is
not 
conditional?Chapter 4
 
pages 43-621. According to John the Revelator, God will have a "remnant" people in the last days who will beidentified by these characteristics:a. They "keep" ___________________. (Rev. 12:17; 14:12)b. They have the ___________________ of the saints and the ___________________ of Jesus. (Rev.14:12)c. They also "have" ___________________ (Rev. 12:17), which he subsequently defines as "the Spirit."(Rev. 19:10, KJV)2. What two interesting and highly significant metaphors does EGW employ to describe the function/roleof the remnant in the work of God? "___________________" and "___________________." (45:2)3. In addition to fulfilling Isa. 58:12 (43:2), their unique task is characterized as:a. Vindicating the ___________________ of God. (43:3)b. Proclaiming "the most ___________________ and ___________________ warnings ever sent by Godto man" (45:2)--the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ___________________ of Rev. 14:8-12. "There is no ___________________ of so great importance," and "they are to allow ___________________ to absorbtheir attention." (46:0)4. In addition to the doctrine of Christ's second advent, which Bible doctrines did EGW especially singleout as significant, important "landmark" doctrines?a. The heavenly ___________________ and its ___________________.b. The ___________________ messages of Rev. 14.c. The ___________________ of God, especially the ___________________ commandment.
