Title

A Prophet for This Generation: A Call to Receive God’s Gift and Go Home

Why?

Why should we care about Ellen White?
Why did God raise her up?
What role did God intend for her to play in our time and in our lives?
What is the big deal with her writings if she is just a lesser light?
Didn’t she say we don’t need her if we study the Bible?
How is Satan, as predicted, making her writings of none effect?
How can we avoid falling into those subtle deceptions?
How can we keep away from the pitfall of fanaticism?
How can we finally be marvelously blessed and helped by her writings, as God intended?

 

“The timeliness and relevance of this call cannot be overstated.” – Daniel Pel, Pastor/Evangelist, Norway

“This is just what the world needs right now!” – Gladys Kubrock, Ellen G. White’s oldest living relative

“May hundreds of thousands be blessed by its reading. Truly it is a book for this generation.” – Kim Busl, OCI Field Vice-President Africa and Western Europe

“As the end draws near and the work of giving the last warning to the world extends, it becomes more important for those who accept present truth to have a clear understanding of the nature and influence of the testimonies, which God in His providence has linked with the work of the third angel’s message from its very rise.”

– Ellen G. White, Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, 654.

“Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”
– 2 Chronicles 20:20

Since when is it a crime to be a European tourist driving a rental car in the USA?  The car crash on the snowy roads had been bad enough, but now the worry about time in jail.  What had launched me on such a foolhardy journey as to attempt to drive over 1,000 miles in the midst of a major snowstorm? Well, let me start from the beginning…”
