10 And I fell at his feet to worship him.
And he said unto me, See thou do it
not: I am thy fellowservant, and of
thy brethren that have the testimony
of Jesus: worship God:
for the testimony of Jesus
is the spirit of prophecy.
Revelation 19:10 (KJV)


“Facing Earth’s Final Crisis”
Compiled from the Writings of Ellen G. White

To the Reader

Seventh-day Adventists believe they have been
especially called of God to proclaim the good news of Christ’s
soon coming to a confused and dying world. “Great pains,”
Ellen White wrote, “should be taken to keep this subject before
the people” (Fundamentals of Christian Education, 336).
In her book The Great Controversy between Christ & Satan,
she graphically outlined the grand and dreadful events of the
future. There is no other book like it. Maranatha, a 1976 book
compiled from her writings, also deals with the fulfillment of
last-day Bible prophecies. {LDE 7.1}

As a further effort to “keep this subject before the people,”
we have prepared the present volume, Last Day Events.
Many of the citations in this book have been drawn from
previously published Ellen White sources, but a fair percentage
of the materials have never before been published.
While we have not included all of Ellen White’s statements on
earth’s closing events, we have endeavored to include the
most significant ones. {LDE 7.2}

We have attempted to present Ellen White’s teachings on
end-time events in a logical arrangement. However, we do
not claim that we have listed all future events in the exact
order of their occurrence.In a matter of such great importance
as the experience of God’s people in the days ahead, when
everyone will have to stand alone, “as though there were not
another person in the world” (The Seventh-day Adventist
Bible Commentary 7:983), it is essential that all Christians
have their own convictions, based upon their own study and
their own personal relationship with the Lord. {LDE 7.4}

Ellen White declares that “our little world is the lesson
book of the universe” (The Desire of Ages, 19), and that the
invisible world is watching “with inexpressible interest
(Prophets and Kings, 148) the closing scenes of this world’s
history. May we all endeavor to catch something of the significance
of earth’s climactic events as we view them in their
relation to the great controversy between good and evil. And
may we share with others the glorious truth that Jesus is
coming soon. {LDE 8.1}
