The early and mid-nineteenth century used to be a time of religious enlightenment. It wasn’t strange to wait a non secular assembly and discover a person experiencing visionary and charismatic manifestations. Such stories weren't noticeable as unusual or fanatical yet have been seen as an indication of God’s strength and recognition. So, in and of itself, Ellen White’s present of prophecy used to be now not detailed or striking yet used to be correct in keeping with the milieu of her time.

So how did Sabbatarian Adventists come to simply accept her reward as really prophetic in comparison to all of the others typical at the moment? It happened via 4 developmental levels in early Adventism (1844-1889). In Accepting Ellen White, Theodore Levterov examines each one degree, its demanding situations, and the conclusions that finally led Seventh-day Adventists to accomplish recognition of Ellen White’s prophetic gift.

Several worthy classes for facing the reward of prophecy this present day might be discovered from those phases of popularity. First, the Adventist attractiveness of the trendy manifestation of the prophetic present relies at the Bible and its teachings. moment, a trust within the reward of prophecy can't be imposed—it needs to be skilled. a 3rd lesson to be drawn is that recognition of Ellen White’s present has enabled the church to place the doctrine of religious presents right into a balanced standpoint inside of its total theology.

It is necessary to notice that in view that 1889, questions over the Seventh-day Adventist figuring out of Ellen White and her ministry have persevered to seem. despite those ongoing controversies, Seventh-day Adventism has persisted to shield its figuring out of and ensure its trust within the prophetic reward of Ellen White that was once affirmed via biblical studies and prayer in these early years.
