Judgments Coming on the Cities
« on: Fri Apr 09, 2021 - 18:42:33 »
I've never come across this before, very sobering.."Terrible shocks will come upon the earth, and the lordly palaces erected at great expense will certainly become heaps of ruins. Manuscript Releases 3:312 (1891). CLD 3.1

When God's restraining hand is removed, the destroyer begins his work. Then in our cities the greatest calamities will come. Manuscript Releases 3:314 (1897). CLD 3.2

The end is near and every city is to be turned upside down every way. There will be confusion in every city. Everything that can be shaken is to be shaken and we do not know what will come next. The judgments will be according to the wickedness of the people and the light of truth that they have had. Manuscript Releases 1:248 (1902). CLD 3.3

O that God's people had a sense of the impending destruction of thousands of cities, now almost given to idolatry. Evangelism, 29 (1903). CLD 3.4

The time is near when large cities will be swept away, and all should be warned of these coming judgments.?Evangelism, 29 (1910). "

First of all, if you are going to quote something, it is both wise and expedient to post the source.

Your source is "Conflicts in the Last Days" written by Ellen  G. White.  As with most false prophets, her prophecies are not sobering at all because they are completely generalized and have no specific details, so you can never pin them down as to whether the prophecy is true or false.  But ELG made enough prophesies about America, Jerusalem, etc. that were very detailed and we know are false that we know, as fact that she was a false prophet.  So none of her doctrine should be followed or listened to.

You're replying to a comment in the SDA forum, I'm sure your views/beliefs differ from the individuals here but keep in mind, this is a sub-board dedicated to SDAs where they are free to express their views.

I agree with both responses above. Quotes should be referenced well enough for all to make use of. Though this is a specified SDA forum, it is still only right to allow non SDA's visiting it, every opportunity to examine references for themselves. Most probably would not know how or where to examine the quotes provided in context. The following link will help any and all interested.

I do however of course take issue with Cobalt's accusation that EGW has made many false prophecies. As usual, there is no backup of accusation with proof or references of his own. Please do back your above accusations up Cobalt, I would be happy to address the same.

If you look carefully, each one has its own source, ie.. Evangelism, 29 (1910) which it this case is in the book "Evangelism" page 29, 1910 edition. So its always good to check carefully before making statements that are incorrect or lacking.
