Spirit of Prophecy Pictures-Ellen Gould White
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7
Tests of a True Prophet
1. Predictions are fulfilled When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that [is] the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, [but] the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Deut. 18:22
The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, [then] shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him. Jeremiah 28:9
Her predictions continue to be fulfilled to the very letter, and even those who are trying to do away with the testimonies are also fulfilling her preditions.
2. Has Dreams and Visions And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, [I] the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, [and] will speak unto him in a dream. Numbers 12:6
Visit Ellen White's Visions to read some of her visions
3. Eyes remain open while in vision He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open: 24:16 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, [which] saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open: Numbers 24:4,16
This very perfectly describes Ellen White while she was in vision. People in her day would wave their hands in front of her face trying to make her blink. On several occasions men would take their fists and act as if they were going to hit her, then would stop just a couple of inches from her nose! Never once would she blink while in vision. She was oblivious to what was happening around her.
4. No breath while in vision For how can the servant of this my lord talk with this my lord? for as for me, straightway there remained no strength in me, neither is there breath left in me. Daniel 10:17
During some of Ellen White's first visions people would hold a mirror in front of her. One man even came up and put his hand over her mouth and nose to see if she was breathing.
In one instance there was a spiritualist physician in Parkville, Maryland, who bragged,"Ellen White just hypnotizes herself. if she ever 'went into vision' when I was around, I'd snap her out of it. She wouldn't pull that kind of stuff around me."
God vindicated his servant, because she went into vision one day when the man was in the room. Now was his chance to "snap her out" of her "mesmerized" state. So he went up to her and began doing all the things he believed would bring her out of her hypnotized state. Suddenly, he turned and ran for the door. Just as he got out of the side door, the deacon grabbed him by the arm and said,"Where are you going, doctor?"
He turned around in a strangled voice and said, "My God! She doesn't breathe!"
5. Has strength while in vision Then there came again and touched me [one] like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me, Daniel 10:18
On one occasion, Sister White lifted a Bible that weighed approximately 18 pounds, and held if out at arms length for over 30 minutes! You should know that she was a frail woman who weighed less than 100 pounds. A normal man might be able to hold that Bible for approximately a minute. A one-time "strongest man in the world," Mr. Universe, held the Bible out at arm's length for four minutes.
6.Prophecies proclaimed will agree with already established truth
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them. Isaiah 8:20
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What [is] the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:28
7. Will speak in the name of God, not his own name For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 1 John 4:1-3
A true prophet will never question the fact that Jesus came in man's fallen nature, in our fallen, degenerate flesh. (see chart "Nature of Man" in Sanctuary Pictures) The Bible says that if a person or church is claiming that Jesus Christ came to this earth in any other way, than in the fallen flesh that you and I have, it is the spirit of antichrist!
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. Deut. 13:1-4
8. Gives direction to God's Church But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men [to] edification, and exhortation, and comfort...but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 1 Corinthians 14:3
**A prophet can be male or female And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. Exodus 15:20
And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. Judges 4:4
So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her. 2 Kings 22:14
Luke 2:36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; Luke 2:36

Look at the full name of Ellen Gould White in comparison to the counsel of the true witness to the Laodicean Church--Revelation 3:18
Ellen Gould White "Light" "Gold" "White"
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Might this be one of the ways God rebukes and chastens us? Let us be zealous therefore and repent!
