    Challenges of the Last Days

    As we face the last days of earth’s history, we know there will be a determined effort by Satan to destroy the effectiveness of the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. We see the neutralization of God’s authoritative Word all around us. The historical-critical method applied to the Word of God reduces its effectiveness as authoritative. It is Satan’s plan to undermine God’s plain «Thus saith the Lord.» We have seen and are seeing determined efforts on the part of individuals motivated by Satan to attack the Spirit of Prophecy and make it «of none effect.»DDP 491.1

    The Word of God and the Spirit of Prophecy both are products of heavenly inspiration and are thus accurate accounts describing the great controversy between good and evil—between Christ and Satan. This is why the devil is determined to destroy the truth found in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. Thankfully, the devil will not succeed! However, in the process many people will be deceived.DDP 491.2

    God has given us a mandate from heaven to be defenders of God’s Word because it has been shown to be true and changes people’s lives. We are to lead people back to the true worship of God, as the first angel of Revelation 14 emphasizes. It is our privilege to affirm God’s wonderful truth through our witness and proclamation. We are to believe God’s prophets and share the news that God reveals His secret messages to His appointed prophets and servants.DDP 491.3

    In the Seventh-day Adventist Church we accept Ellen G, White as a modern servant of the Lord and as a prophet, This church would not be where it is without the special guidance given it by God through Ellen White in the writings of the Spirit of Prophecy, The counsel given will help finish God’s work on this earth through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is precisely why the devil is so intent on destroying the influence of the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.DDP 492.1

    In Selected Messages, book 2, page 78, we read:DDP 492.2

    The very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God, , , , Satan will work ingeniously, in different ways and through different agencies, to unsettle the confidence of God’s remnant people in the true testimony. He will bring in spurious visions to mislead, and will mingle the false with the true, and so disgust people that they will regard everything that bears the name of visions as a species of fanaticism; but honest souls, by contrasting false and true, will be enabled to distinguish between them,DDP 492.3

    Another specific warning was given in Selected Messages, book 1, page 41, which says, «Soon every possible effort will be made to discount and pervert the truth of the testimonies of God’s Spirit, We must have in readiness the clear, straight messages that since 1846 have been coming to God’s people,»DDP 492.4
