By: Ellen G. White,
Paperback | 2000
In the early 1800s, a spiritual revival known as the Great Advent Movement stormed around the world, crossing over boundaries of race, culture, and religion as people came together to study Bible prophecy. Concluding that Jesus was to return in 1844, the bitter disappointment as the year came and passed they endured caused many to reject the Bible, leaving only a handful continuing to search the Word of God in their perplexity. Among these was an earnest young woman now known as Ellen G. White. While pleading for divine light in their confusion, God gave her visions that clarified their understanding of Daniel 8:14. With a translucent simplicity revealing the purity and power of God's Holy Spirit, Ellen White recorded in Early Writings the visions that comforted the early Adventists and continues to strengthen the hope of all who daily seek to be ready for Jesus. "It shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams" (Joel 2:28). "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Revelation 21:4). As you prayerfully turn its pages, may this book strengthen you to abide in Christ until that glorious day when Christ returns.
