Ellen White writings or the Bible first? A prophet or a Messenger? What is the โ€œspirit of prophecy?โ€

Early in my youth I was asked several times, Are you a prophet?

Strange things will arise, and in your youth I set you apart to bear the message to the erring ones, to carry the word before unbelievers, and with pen and voice to reprove from the Word actions that are not right. Exhort from the Word. I will make My Word open to you. It shall not be as a strange language. In the true eloquence of simplicity, with voice and pen, the messages that I give shall be heard from one who has never learned in the schools. My Spirit and My power shall be with you. 1SM 32.2


It is not best to place ourselves in peril. I shall advise some here to make a change, in order to preserve the strength that God has given them. I cannot do otherwise, that is my mission. ๐“๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐š๐ฒ, ๐€๐ซ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐š ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐ฉ๐ก๐ž๐ญ, ๐Œ๐ซ๐ฌ. ๐–๐ก๐ข๐ญ๐ž? ๐ˆ ๐๐จ ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐œ๐ฅ๐š๐ข๐ฆ ๐ญ๐จ ๐š ๐›๐ž ๐š ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐ฉ๐ก๐ž๐ญ. ๐“๐ก๐ž๐ง ๐ฐ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ?โ€”๐€ ๐ฆ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ซ. ๐‘พ๐’†๐’๐’, ๐’˜๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’…๐’๐’†๐’” ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’Ž๐’†๐’‚๐’?

For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy: there are divers senses given of the last phrase; but of all given, there are two which seem to me most probable: either:


1. The spirit of this prophecy, by which I have revealed these things to thee, is not mine, it is the testimony of Jesus; he therefore is to be adored, not I. Or:


2. Thy preaching the gospel, which is thy testimony to Christ, is as much from the Spirit of God, as my spirit of prophecy.


Some explain this as the testimony which proceeds from Jesus. Jesus, by imparting this testimony to believers imparts to them the spirit of prophecy. Others, the witness which is born to Jesus. The way of bearing this witness, the substance and essence of this testimony is the Spirit of prophecy.

Both explanations are correct.

(3) โ€œI took the precious Bible and surrounded it with the several Testimonies for the Church, given for the people of God. Here, said I, the cases of nearly all are met. The sins they are to shun are pointed out. The counsel that they desire can be found here, given for other cases situated similarly to themselves. God has been pleased to give you line upon line and precept upon precept. But there are not many of you that really know what is contained in theTestimonies. You are not familiar with the Scriptures. If you had made Godโ€™s word your study, with a desire to reach the Bible standard and attain to Christian perfection, you would not have needed the Testimonies. It is because you have neglected to acquaint yourselves with Godโ€™s inspired Book that He has sought to reach you by simple, direct testimonies, calling your attention to the words of inspiration which you had neglected to obey, and urging you to fashion your lives in accordance with its pure and elevated teachings. {5T 664.3}


โ€œThe Lord designs to warn you, to reprove, to counsel, through the testimonies given, and to impress your minds with the importance of the truth of His word. The written testimonies are not to give new light, but to impress vividly upon the heart the truths of inspiration already revealed. Manโ€™s duty to God and to his fellow man has been distinctly specified in Godโ€™s word, yet but few of you are obedient to the light given. Additional truth is not brought out; but God has through the Testimonies simplified the great truths already given and in His own chosen way brought them before the people to awaken and impress the mind with them, that all may be left without excuse.{5T 665.1}


โ€œPride, self-love, selfishness, hatred, envy, and jealousy have beclouded the perceptive powers, and the truth, which would make you wise unto salvation, has lost its power to charm and control the mind. The very essential principles of godliness are not understood because there is not a hungering and thirsting for Bible knowledge, purity of heart, and holiness of life. The Testimonies are not to belittle the word of God, but to exalt it and attract minds to it, that the beautiful simplicity of truth may impress all.{5T 665.2}


Should we as Adventists see Ellen White's writings as another Bible? No!

The writings of Ellen White are not a substitute for Scripture. In response to people who considered her writings on the same level as the Bible she wrote:

"I took the precious Bible and surrounded it with several Testimonies for the Church, given for the people of God...You are not familiar with the Scriptures. If you had made God's word your study, with a desire to reach the Bible standard...you would not have needed the Testimonies. It is because you have neglected to acquaint yourselves with God's inspired Book that He has sought to reach you by simple, direct testimonies, calling your attention to the words of inspiration which you had neglected to obey, and urging you to fashion your lives in accordance with its pure and elevated teachings." T5 p. 664


The Bible is Godโ€™s voice speaking to us just as surely as though we could hear Him with our ears. The word of the living God is not merely written, but spoken. Do we receive the Bible as the oracle of God? If we realized the importance of this Word, with what awe would we open it, and with what earnestness would we search its precepts. The reading and contemplating of the Scriptures would be regarded as an audience with the Most Highโ€ (HP 134).


โ€œAll human teaching should be subordinate to the oracles of Godโ€ (GC 204)


โ€œHe [Christ] pointed to the Scriptures as of unquestionable authority, and we should do the same. The Bible is to be presented as the word of the infinite God, as the end of all controversy and the foundation of all faithโ€ (COL 39, 40).


โ€œLeave the impression upon the mind that the Bible, and the Bible alone, is our rule of faith, and that the sayings and doings of men are not to be a criterion for our doctrines or actionsโ€ (CS 84).


โ€œThe Bible, and the Bible alone, is to be our creed, and sole bond of union; all who bow to this Holy Word will be in harmony. Our own views and ideas must not control our efforts. Man is fallible, but Godโ€™s Word is infallibleโ€ (1 SM 416).


Guide to Salvation

โ€œIn His word, God has committed to men the knowledge necessary for salvation. The Holy Scriptures are to be accepted as an authoritative, infallible revelation of His will. They are the standard of character, the revealer of doc- trines, and the test of experienceโ€ (GC, vii).

โ€œLet the Bible decide every question that is essential to manโ€™s salvationโ€ (MM 91).


โ€œThe Bible is an unerring guideโ€ (4T 312).

(2 Timothy 3:13-17):

(13)But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (14)But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; (15)And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (16)All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:that the man of God may be

perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, (17)so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.


Scriptures a Safeguard

โ€œโ€˜To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.โ€™ Isaiah 8:20. The people of God are directed to the Scriptures as their safeguard against the influence of false teachers and the delusive power of spirits of darkness. . . . The last great delusion is soon to open before us. Antichrist is to perform his marvelous works in our sight. So closely will the counterfeit resemble the true that it will be impossible to distinguish between them except by the Holy Scriptures. By their testimony every statement and every miracle must be tested . . . None but those who have fortified the mind with the truths of the Bible will stand through the last great conflictโ€ (GC 593, 594).


โ€œOnly those who have been diligent students of the Scriptures and who have received the love of the truth will be shielded from the powerful delusion that takes the world captive. By the Bible testimony these will detect the deceiver in his disguise. To all the testing time will come. By the sifting of temptation the genuine Christian will be revealed. Are the people of God now so firmly established upon His word that they would not yield to the evidence of their senses? Would they, in such a crisis, cling to the Bible and the Bible only?โ€ (GC 625).


โ€œJesus met Satan with the words, โ€˜Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Godโ€™ (Matt. 4:4). In every temptation the weapon of His warfare was the Word of God. Satan demanded of Christ a miracle as a sign of His divinity. But that which is greater than all miracles, a firm reliance upon a โ€˜Thus saith the Lordโ€™ was a sign that could not be controverted. So long as Christ held to this position, the tempter could gain no advantage.

โ€œA familiarity with the Word of God is our only hope. Those who diligently search the Scriptures will not accept Satanโ€™s delusions as the truth of Godโ€ (GC 625).


Basis of faith

โ€œParents need to reform; ministers need to reform; they need God in their households. If they would see a different state of things, they must bring His word into their families and must make it their counselor. They must teach their children that it is the voice of God addressed to them, and is to be implicitly obeyed. They should patiently instruct their children, kindly and untiringly teach them how to live in order to please God. The children of such a household are prepared to meet the sophistries of infidelity. They have accepted the Bible as the basis of their faith, and they have a foundation that cannot be swept away by the incoming tide of skepticismโ€ (PP 143).


โ€œI am fully in harmony with you in your work when you present the Bible, and the Bible alone, as the foundation of our faithโ€ (2SM 85).


โ€œBut faith is in no sense allied to presumption. Only he who has true faith is secure against presumption. For presumption is Satanโ€™s counterfeit of faith. Faith claims Godโ€™s promises, and brings forth fruit in obedience. Presumption also claims the promises, but uses them as Satan did, to excuse transgression. Faith would have led our first parents to trust the love of God, and to obey His commands. Presumption led them to transgress His law, believing that His great love would save them from the consequence of their sin. It is not faith that claims the favor of Heaven without complying with the conditions on which mercy is to be granted. Genuine faith has its foundation in the promises and pro- visions of the Scripturesโ€ (DA 126).


โ€œThis book is the voice of God speaking to us. The Bible opens to us the words of life; for it makes us acquainted with Christ who is our life. In order to have true, abiding faith in Christ, we must know Him as He is represented in the wordโ€ (FE 433).


Basis of Morality

โ€œThe Bible should be read every day. It is the correct standard of right and wrong and of moral principleโ€ (SI, March 20, 1884, 177).


โ€œIt is, in all its precepts and requirements, as pure as the character of God and as elevated as His throneโ€ (3T 314).


Test of Inspiration

โ€œTrue Christianity receives the word of God as the great treasure house of inspired truth and the test of all inspirationโ€ (GC 193).


Test for the Operation of the Holy Spirit

โ€œThe Spirit was not givenโ€”nor can it ever be bestowedโ€”to supersede the Bible; for the Scriptures explicitly state that the word of God is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be testedโ€ (GC p.vii, para.3)


โ€œEven the work of the Holy Spirit upon the heart is to be tested by the Word of God. The Spirit which inspired the Scriptures, always leads to the Scripturesโ€ (1SM 43).


Guide to Life

โ€œThe Christian evidence that we need, is found not in the experience of men, but in our Bibles. The Word of God is the man of our counsel; for it brings us down from age to age, bearing its testimony to the unchangeableness of the truth. . . . Give the Word its honored position as a guide in the home. Let it be regarded as the Counselor in every difficulty, the standard of every practice. . . . We have a Guidebook, the Word of God, and we are inexcusable if we miss the way to heaven, for plain directions have been given us. . . . The Bible presents a perfect standard of character; it is an infallible guide under all circumstances, even to the end of the journey of lifeโ€ (ML 25).


โ€œThe Bible is an unerring guideโ€ (4T 312).


โ€œAll who do not earnestly search the Scriptures and submit every desireand purpose of life to that unerring test, all who do not seek God in prayer for a knowledge of His will, will surely wander from the right path and fall under the deception of Satanโ€ (ST 192).


โ€œThe Bible presents a perfect standard of character. This sacred book, inspired by God, and written by holy men, is a perfect guide under all circumstances of lifeโ€ (FE 100).


Rule of Conscience

โ€œThis led him [John Huss] to adopt for his own guidance, and to preach to others for theirs, the maxim that the precepts of Scripture, conveyed through the understanding, are a rule of the conscience; In other words, that God speaking in the Bible, and not the church speaking through the priesthood, is the one infallible guideโ€ (GC 102).


Standard of Character

โ€œThe Bible is Godโ€™s will expressed to man. It is the only perfect standard of character, and marks out the duty of man in every circumstance of lifeโ€ (4T 312).


Only Basis of Happiness

โ€œHe who is following the divine guidance has found the only true source of saving grace and real happiness, and has gained the power of imparting happiness to all around him. No man can really enjoy life without religionโ€ (CT 53).


โ€œThrough the study of the Scriptures we obtain a correct knowledge of how to live so as to enjoy the greatest amount of unalloyed happinessโ€ (3T 314).


Basis of Knowledge and Truth

โ€œIn the prevailing systems of education, human philosophy had taken the place of divine revelation. Instead of the heaven-given standard of truth, men had accepted a standard of their own devisingโ€ (Ed 74).


โ€œโ€˜Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.โ€™ The word of God should be made the great educating power. How shall students know the truth, except by a close, earnest, persevering study of the word? Here is the grand stimulus, the hidden force which quickens the mental and physical powers, and directs the life into right channels. Here in the word is wisdom, poetry, history, biography, and the most profound philosophy. Here is a study that quickens the mind into a vigorous and healthy life, and awakens it to the highest exercise. It is impossible to study the Bible with a humble, teachable spirit, without developing and strengthening the intellect. Those who become best acquainted with the wisdom and purpose of God as revealed in His word, become men and women of mental strength; and they may become efficient workers with the great Educator, Jesus Christ. . . . Christ has given His people the words of truth, and all are called to act a part in making them known to the world. . . . There is no sanctification aside from the truthโ€”the word. Then how essential that it should be understood by every one!โ€ (FE 432).


โ€œAs professed teachers from God come to us declaring that they have a message from God, it is proper to inquire carefully, โ€œHow do we know that this is truth?โ€ Jesus has told us that โ€˜false prophets shall arise and shall deceive many.โ€™ But we need not be deceived; for the Word of God gives us a test whereby we may know what is truth. The prophet says, โ€˜To the law and to the testimony; if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in themโ€™โ€ (E.G. White Comments, 7BC 952).


โ€œWe have a Bible full of the most precious truth. It contains the alpha and the omega of knowledgeโ€ (GW 308).


โ€œMen of the greatest intellects, if not guided by the word of God in their research, become bewildered; they cannot comprehend the Creator or His works. But set the mind to grasp and measure eternal truth, summon it to effort by delving for the jewels of truth in the rich mine of the word of God, and it will never become dwarfed and enfeebled, as when left to dwell upon commonplace subjectsโ€ (FE 84).


โ€œThe Bible is our textbookโ€ (CSW 56).โ€œThe Bible must be made the foundation for all studyโ€ (FE 451).


โ€œWithout the Bible we should have been left to conjectures and fables in regard to the occurrences of past ages. Of all the books that have flooded the world, be they ever so valuable, the Bible is the Book of books, and is most de- serving of the closest study and attention. It gives not only the history of the creation of this world, but a description of the world to come. It contains instruction concerning the wonders of the universe, and it reveals to our under- standing the Author of the heavens and the earth. It unfolds a simple and complete system of theology and philosophyโ€ (FE 129).


โ€œWe must stand barricaded by the truths of the Bible. The canopy of truth is the only canopy under which we can stand safelyโ€ (MM 88).


โ€œCold, philosophical speculations and scientific research in which God isnot acknowledged are a positive injury. And the evil is aggravated when, as is often the case, books placed in the hands of the young, accepted as authority and depended upon in their education, are from authors avowedly infidel. Through all the thoughts presented by these men their poisonous sentiments are inter- woven. The study of such books is like handling black coals; a student cannot be undefiled in mind who thinks along the line of skepticismโ€ (CT 423, 424).


โ€œIf you had made Godโ€™s word your study, with a desire to reach the Bible standard and attain to Christian perfection, you would not have needed the Testimonies. It is because you have neglected to acquaint yourselves with Godโ€™s inspired Book that He has sought to reach you by simple, direct testimonies, calling your attention to the words of inspiration which you had neglected to obey, and urging you to fashion your lives in accordance with its pure and elevated teachings.


The Lord designs to warn you, to reprove, to counsel, through the testimonies given, and to impress your minds with the importance of the truth of His word. The written testimonies are not to give new light, but to impress vividly upon the heart the truths of inspiration already revealed. Manโ€™s duty to God and to his fellow man has been distinctly specified in Godโ€™s word; yet but few of you are obedient to the light given. Additional truth is not brought out; but God has through the Testimonies simplified the great truths already given and in His own chosen way brought them before the people to awaken and impress the mind with them, that all may be left without excuse.โ€ -Testimonies for the Church Volume 2, Page 605


Wrong Use of the โ€œTestimoniesโ€

The first number of the Testimonies ever published contains a warning against the injudicious use of the light which is thus given to Godโ€™s people. I stated that some had taken an unwise course; when they had talked their faith to unbelievers, and the proof had been asked for, they had read from my writings instead of going to the Bible for proof. It was shown me that this course was inconsistent and would prejudice unbelievers against the truth. The Testimonies can have no weight with those who know nothing of their spirit. They should not be referred to in such cases. {CCh 95.2}


When speaking of her writings she said,


Ellen White Calls Her Writings a Lesser Light.โ€“Little heed is given to the Bible, and the Lord has given a lesser light to lead men and women to the greater light.โ€“The Review and Herald, Jan. 20, 1903. (Quoted in Colporteur Ministry, p. 125.) {3SM 30.4}


Tested by the Bible.โ€“The Spirit was not givenโ€“nor can it ever be bestowedโ€“to supersede the Bible; for the Scriptures explicitly state that the Word of God is the standard by which all teaching and experience must be tested. . . . Isaiah declares, โ€œTo the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in themโ€ (Isaiah 8:20).โ€“The Great Controversy, Introduction, p. vii. {3SM 30.5}


The Bible a Light for My Way

โ€œThy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105.


โ€œMost wondrous book! bright candle of the Lord!

Star of eternity! the only light

By which the bark of man can navigate

The sea of life, and gain the coast of bliss securely.โ€ {OHC 31.1}


Why should not this bookโ€”this precious treasureโ€”be exalted and esteemed as a valued friend? This is our chart across the stormy sea of life. It is our guide-book, showing us the way to the eternal mansions, and the character we must have to inhabit them. There is no book the perusal of which will so elevate and strengthen the mind as the study of the Bible.Here the intellect will find themes of the most elevated character to call out its powers. There is nothing that will so endow with vigor all our faculties as bringing them in contact with the stupendous truths of revelation. The effort to grasp and measure these great thoughts expands the mind. We may dig down deep into the mine of truth, and gather precious treasures with which to enrich the soul. Here we may learn the true way to live, the safe way to die. {OHC 31.2}


A familiar acquaintance with the Scriptures sharpens the discerning powers, and fortifies the soul against the attacks of Satan. The Bible is the sword of the Spirit, which will never fail to vanquish the adversary. It is the only true guide in all matters of faith and practice. The reason why Satan has so great control over the minds and hearts of men is that they have not made the Word of God the man of their counsel, and all their ways have not been tried by the true test. The Bible will show us what course we must pursue to become heirs of glory. {OHC 31.3}

Lately there has been a movement among some SDAโ€™s wherein they claim Sister Whiteโ€™s writings actually supersede the Bible. Iโ€™ve seen this happening for quite some time now and I believe itโ€™s time it is addressed. Please see the above quotes from her writings that should put an end to this controversy. And by the way, The term โ€œstudy the bibleโ€ comes up 220 times in her writings.


Revelation 22:18-19

[18] For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: [19] And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
