Much has been written in an attempt to place Ellen White in the worst light possible. On this website we will show these attacks are not founded on an honest evaluation of facts. On this page we will deal with her predications.


Prophet or Psychic

Accusation:
Where are the fulfilled predictions of Mrs. White during her seventy-one years of prophesying? What definite events did she foretell to occur at definite times and to definite cites? Where are these prophecies? At first she did venture to foretell a few things definitely, but they all failed.

Today people look to “psychics” to forecast events. However Ellen White is not a psychic, she is a prophet. A prophet has a MESSAGE, which is all about being in right relationship with God and includes preparation for meeting the future on God’s terms. It is not a matter of being a fortune teller conjuring up specific localized happenings in the future to satisfy people’s curiosity. A prophet's main function is to lead people to the Bible and to God. Thus of course her books “are devoted almost wholly to personal matters of right standing with God, expositions of the Bible, and to practical subjects regarding Christian conduct and duty.”

Moreover, she also wrote extensively about the prophecies concerning the ENDTIME DECEPTIONS and events of the world, placing them in the broader picture of the great controversy between Christ and Satan. This is a totally a different realm from then that of the “fortune tellers”. People should not confuse the role of a prophet, or messenger of God, with a fortune teller.

Her outline of prophetic happenings in this world are so accurate it amazes me that people aren't sitting up and taking note, but would rather twist things to make it appear she is a false prophet.


Endtime Prophecies are Being Fulfilled

1. EGW: The different Denominational Churches will seek to unify:

The wide diversity of belief in the Protestant churches is regarded by many as decisive proof that no effort to secure a forced uniformity can ever be made. But there has been for years, in churches of the Protestant faith, a strong and growing sentiment in favor of a union based upon common points of doctrine. To secure such a union, the discussion of subjects upon which all were not agreed--however important they might be from a Bible standpoint--must necessarily be waived. {GC88 444.1}

Today's trend is very much in that direction.

2000-FEB-29: European series of meetings: According to ENI: "One of the most basic concepts of the history of Christianity - that of the 16th-century reformation which split the Western Church - is being radically revised thanks to a series of meetings aimed at bringing Protestant denominations closer together. Theologians and officials representing a range of Protestant denominations have been meeting since 1986 to examine the nature of Protestantism. (Ecumenical News International (ENI) has a web-site at www.eni.ch
Ecumenical News

There is the "Churches Uniting in Christ" organization. They say: "Years of discussion lead to the realization that there would not be an organizational merger based on uniformity of structure, belief and practice, but rather a living relationship focusing on a union of purpose." So they advocate coming together for social, mission activities, retreats, and common causes, to break down the differences.

The idea is exactly what EGW predicted:
Setting aside theological differences, we can help each other in the things we all agree upon. That effort is commonly referred to as "ecumenism," which is defined as "the organized attempt to bring about the cooperation and unity of all believers in Christ."

2. EGW: The Protestants will reach out and clasp the hand of Roman Catholism.

Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, (GC 451)

Years ago this prediction was ridiculed and held high as one of "EGW's foolish predictions". Protestants, they claimed, would never give up their protestantism and join with Catholics. No one is laughing now! Indeed, I think they are now attacking EGW BECAUSE she predicted this movement and shows that it is not a good thing.

(ECT) Evangelicals and Catholics Together
On March 29, 1994, leading evangelicals and Catholics signed a joint declaration, "Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the 3rd. Millennium." Contained within the document, which attempts to bring ecumenical unity, are some seriously compromising agreements regarding proselytizing and doctrinal distinctions.

The 25-page document, originated by Chuck Colson and Catholic social critic Richard John Neuhaus, was signed by 40 noted evangelical and Catholic leaders including Pat Robertson, heads of the Home Mission Board and Christian Life Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Bill Bright - founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, Mark Noll of Wheaton University, Os Guinness, Jesse Miranda (Assemblies of God), Richard Mauw (President , Fuller Seminary), J.I. Packer and Herbert Schlossberg.
It called for Catholic and evangelical cooperation on social and cultural issues where both traditions share common goals,

The above declarations and cooperations signal the undoing of the Reformation and the healing of Rev. 13's beast. So now, ecumenical minded people, instead of recognizing the prophetic accuracy, do not want to hear that prophecy.

3. Protestants will compromise doctrine to gain the favor of Roman Catholism.

EGW wrote:
There is an increasing indifference concerning the doctrines that separate the reformed churches from the papal hierarchy; the opinion is gaining ground that, after all, we do not differ so widely upon vital points as has been supposed, and that a little concession on our part will bring us into a better understanding with Rome.
BE.1887-02-01

The Roman Catholic Church is leading in this call for ecumenical unity. Dialogues between the different churches and Rome are being conducted. Yet for all the talk about "doctrine is not important, we are all one in Christ" it is the Protestants that are expected to "lay aside doctrinal differences."

(Ut Unam Sint, ("That They May Be One"), encyclical promulgated by Pope John Paul II on May 25, 1995)
"18. Taking up an idea expressed by Pope John XXIII at the opening of the Council, the Decree on Ecumenism mentions the way of formulating doctrine as one of the elements of a continuing reform. Here it is not a question of altering the deposit of faith, changing the meaning of dogmas, eliminating essential words from them, accommodating truth to the preferences of a particular age, or suppressing certain articles of the Creed under the false pretext that they are no longer understood today. The unity willed by God can be attained only by the adherence of all to the content of revealed faith in its entirety. In matters of faith, compromise is in contradiction with God who is Truth. In the Body of Christ, "the way, and the truth, and the life" (Jn 14:6), who could consider legitimate a reconciliation brought about at the expense of the truth? The Council's Declaration on Religious Freedom Dignitatis Humanae attributes to human dignity the quest for truth, "especially in what concerns God and his Church",[33] and adherence to truth's demands. A "being together" which betrayed the truth would thus be opposed both to the nature of God who offers his communion and to the need for truth found in the depths of every human heart."--

86. The Constitution Lumen Gentium, in a fundamental affirmation echoed by the Decree Unitatis Redintegratio, states that the one Church of Christ subsists in the Catholic Church. The Decree on Ecumenism emphasizes the presence in her of the fullness (plenitudo) of the means of salvation. Full unity will come about when all share in the fullness of the means of salvation entrusted by Christ to his Church

So Protestants are dialoguing with Rome. Rome has no intentions whatsoever to give up her doctrines, but Protestanism is riddled with the cry that doctrines should not separate, that doctrines are not what's important.
This we hear all the time now, it is responsible for much of the inter-denominationalism and non-denominationalism of this generation. According to modern thinking, to be "unsectarian" is to become an angel among devils! Preachers and union revivalists have founded their whole movements upon the premise that all Christians are in "the true church." They say Christians should drop their "petty differences" and work together to advance the "cause of Christ."
Protestantism is compromising her doctrines, and seeking the favor of Rome, just like predicted.

4. Protestant churches will unite and influence the State to enforce their beliefs.

EGW. Spiritual Gifts, vol. 4, page 277
When the churches of our land, uniting upon such points of faith as are held by them in common, shall influence the State to enforce their decrees and sustain their institutions, then will Protestant America have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy.

The "glue" of the ecumenical movement is to encourage Christians to unite on issues and seek to influence the laws of the land.
America has the Christian Coalition lobbying for this.
"The mission of the Christian Coalition is simple," says Pat Robertson, the organization's president and founder. It is "to mobilize Christians -- one precinct at a time, one community at a time -- until once again we are the head and not the tail, and at the top rather than the bottom of our political system." Robertson predicted that "the Christian Coalition will be the most powerful political force in America by the end of this decade." And, "We have enough votes to run this country...and when the people say, 'We've had enough,' we're going to take over!"

According to "TIME" May 15, 1995 "The Christian Coalition is one of the most powerful grassroots organizations in American politics..."

Now the US has a republican President and the question has been raised:
Has Bush breached the wall between church and state-- and if so-- what will stop the Sunday campaigns that we see gathering strength by the groups who Bush is "courting".

"Sometimes Bush comes close to crossing the line of trying to serve the nation as its religious leader, rather than its political leader," says G. Welton Gaddy, executive director of Interfaith Alliance.

Since the election, the White House and the Republican National Committee have tried to solidify and increase support among churchgoing Catholics. Steps have included meetings by the president with Catholic leaders —including the Pope — and presidential speaking engagements at Notre Dame University and the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington. Conservative Catholics are regularly consulted by the White House on policy questions. Link

5. The Wall between Church and State Will Be Broken Down, and Protestant American Christians will Look to the Pope.

EGW: This investing the church with the power of the state will bring evil results. Men have almost passed the point of God's forbearance. They have invested their strength in politics, and have united with the papacy. But the time will come when God will punish those who have made void His law, and their evil work will recoil upon themselves (MS 63, 1899). {4BC 1168.8}

Are Christians in America lobbying to tear down the wall between Church and State?

WASHINGTON - January 28 - Television preacher D. James Kennedy aired a nationwide television special Jan. 23, 2000, that attacked the separation of church and state. During the hour-long edition of his "Coral Ridge Hour," Kennedy maligned the concept of church-state separation numerous times, calling it, among other things, "one of the greatest deceptions of the 20th century."

The evidence is strong-- many Christians are lobbying to "flush the separation of church and state down the toilet". Some call separation of church and state: "This vile, doctrine of demons". The problem is that they site instances where STATE is restricting the church as proof the separation of church and state is evil. Yet, what they site is only more evidence that the wall is crumbling, being hammered from the other side---
When it is down, these Christians are determined to use the state to enforce their religion, just as EGW predicated.

Will they unite with the papacy?

President and Pope
meet together behind "closed doors" for 30 minutes on a Monday before July 24, 2001
That was a year ago--
The article states:

Like the two Republican presidents before him -- his father George and Ronald Reagan -- Bush sees eye to eye with the pope on some moral issues, particularly abortion In this next link we have a more recent private 30 minute meeting of President Bush with the Pope at the Vatican: May 28, 2002

This article says things like: "The Catholic Church is an incredibly important institution in our country."
As Mr. Bush said goodbye to John Paul, the pope was heard to say "God bless America."
President Bush said. "I'm also going to mention the fact that I appreciate the Pope's leadership."

6. Spiritualism joins the Church

EGW WARNED:
4SP.372.002 The very name of witchcraft is now held in contempt. The claim that men can hold intercourse with evil spirits is regarded as a fable of the Dark Ages. But Spiritualism, which numbers its converts by hundreds of thousands, yea, by millions, which has made its way into scientific circles, which has invaded churches, and has found favor in legislative bodies, and even in the courts of kings--this mammoth deception is but a revival in a new disguise of the witchcraft condemned and prohibited of old. Satan beguiles men now, as he beguiled Eve in Eden, by exciting a desire to obtain forbidden knowledge. "Ye shall be as gods,"

GC.557.002 It is true that spiritualism is now changing its form and, veiling some of its more objectionable features, is assuming a Christian guise. While it formerly denounced Christ and the Bible, it now professes to accept both. But the Bible is interpreted in a manner that is pleasing to the unrenewed heart, while its solemn and vital truths are made of no effect. Love is dwelt upon as the chief attribute of God, but it is degraded to a weak sentimentalism, making little distinction between good and evil.

Has witchcraft and the concept that "people are gods" invaded Christianity? New age philosophy, which is really the old pagan spiritualism has indeed become Christianized and now, as EGW predicted they use the Bible to promote their vain philosophies and people are blinded to by the supposed "love is all that matters" talk.


Just read this preversion of truth, while yet using the Bible.

One has to look no further to find God than within himself. These are true followers of the injunction of Jesus that "The kingdom of God is within you." (Luke 17:21) If, then, the kingdom of God is within it must stand to reason that God resides in his own kingdom and he is also within. If God is within your brother then when you see his face you also see the face of God. If God is within you then when you look in the mirror you also see the divine face. When you feel within with no illusions then you must be feeling the presence of God. Jesus preached the kingdom of God and invited all believers to come to it. Exactly what would be the nature of the inhabitants of the kingdom of God? The vegetable kingdom is composed of vegetables. The animal kingdom is composed of animals and the human kingdom is composed of humans. Therefore what kind of residents abides in the Kingdom of God? Yes. They can only be Gods.

spiritualism is indeed coming into the churches.

How could an outright spiritualistic, occult based movie receive blessings from Catholic church? Yet that has happened:

HARRY POTTER BLESSED "The Vatican has given its blessing to child wizard Harry Potter.
Church officials said the character, devised by author J.K Rowling, was good for children and helped them understand the difference between good and bad. The news comes just one month after it was announced Russian officials were to investigate claims that the books discredit Christianity.
The inquiry was launched after a complaint that Harry Potter (a young wizard) and the Chamber of Secrets promotes witchcraft and discredits the Orthodox faith.

Yes, the Catholic Church promotes "communication with the dead".

Dialogue with the dead is feasible, Vatican spokesman says
By John Hooper, London Observer Service

ROME – One of the most authoritative spokesmen of the Roman Catholic Church has raised eyebrows among the faithful by declaring that the Church believes in the feasibility of communication with the dead. The Rev. Gino Concetti, chief theological commentator for the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, denied he was signaling any change in approach. But he agreed that his remarks might come as a jolt to many believers. He said the Church remained opposed to the raising of spirits, but added: "Communication is possible between those who live on this earth and those who live in a state of eternal repose, in heaven or purgatory. It may even be that God lets our loved ones send us messages to guide us at certain moments in our life. "His comments were first made in support of an American theologian, the Rev. John Neuhaus. Neuhaus had described how a friend had seen a ghost. He said there were various explanations, but "the important thing is not to deny such things a priority." Concetti said the key to the Church’s attitude was the Roman Catholic belief in a "Communion of Saints," which included Christians on earth as well as those in the after-life. "Where there is communion, there is communication," he said. Concetti suggested dead relatives could be responsible for prompting impulses and triggering inspiration - and even for "sensory manifestations," such as appearances in dreams. Concetti said the new Catholic catechism specifically endorsed the view that the dead could intercede on earth and quotes the dying St. Dominic telling his brothers: "Do not weep, for I shall be more useful to you after my death and I shall help you then more effectively than during my life."

This article was published by the London Observer Service and was written by John Hooper.

More than one in three Americans, mainly younger adults, believe that it is possible to communicate with people who have died and are living in the Spirit World. This comes from the Barna Research Group, a marketing research company in California that analyzes cultural trends and the Christian Church.

A slight majority of adults (51%) believes that "praying to deceased saints can have a positive effect in a person's life." Not surprisingly, there is a massive difference between Protestants and Catholics on this matter, with Catholics twice as likely to embrace this idea (80% versus 41%). What is surprising is the large share of Protestants that believes in praying to dead saints, a notion dismissed by most Protestant churches. Amazingly, one out of six evangelicals (16%) and half of the non-evangelical born again Christians (50%) also believe in praying to dead saints. Six out of ten Hispanics possess this belief.

More than one-third of the public (35%) also believes that it is "possible to communicate with others after they die." This perspective is related to a person's age: half of all adults under age 38 endorse this view, compared to one-third of the Boomers (mid-thirties to mid-fifties) and just one out of seven older adults. Three out of ten non-evangelical born again Christians believe in communication with the dead. Once again, Catholics were more likely than Protestants to embrace this view (45% of Catholics, 26% of Protestants).

There is much more evidence that Ellen White's predication that spiritualism will invade the churches is being fulfilled.

 

7. Drums and Confusion will Become part of Worship

The Lord has shown me what would take place just before the close of probation. Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. 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 blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit's working.
The Holy Spirit has nothing to do with such a confusion of noise and multitude of sounds...Satan will make music a snare by the way in which it is conducted....Those participating in the supposed revival receive impressions which lead them adrift. They cannot tell what they formerly knew regarding Bible principles.
No encouragement should be given to this kind of worship. 2SM 37, Mar 234

Do we even have to document this one? Rock music, dancing, loud noise-- etc. etc. is invading the churches and is being called the manifestation of the Holy Spirit.

Thus we see that Ellen White's predications ARE COMING TO PASS.
