I consider this "letter" to be the single piece of evidence showing the mind, work and time of takeover by W. C. White. It is dated five weeks after James’ death. It passes unobserved by 99.9% of the readers of the counterfeit SOP. Further comments at the end of the article. art@sopvindicated.org


I have highlighted important points as, allegedly, God, is using, the now dead James, to counsel his prophet, Ellen, as to what to do, how to do it, and why. This letter is blasphemy.

Ellen Dreams of James After His Death

            A few days since I was pleading with the Lord for light in regard to my duty. In the night I dreamed I was in the carriage, driving, sitting at the right hand. Father was in the carriage, seated at my left hand. He was very pale, but calm and composed. "Why Father," I exclaimed, "I am so happy to have you by my side once more! I have felt that half of me was gone. Father, I saw you die; I saw you buried. Has the Lord pitied me and let you come back to me again, and we work together as we used to?" [10MR38.02] p. 7, Para. 1, [1881MS].

            He looked very sad. He said, "The Lord knows what is best for you and for me. My work was very dear to me. We have made a mistake. We have responded to urgent invitations of our brethren to attend important meetings. We had not the heart to refuse. These meetings have worn us both more than we were aware. Our good brethren were gratified, but they did not realize that in these meetings we took upon us greater burdens than at our age we could safely carry. They will never know the result of this long-continued strain upon us. God would have had them bear the burdens we have carried for years. Our nervous energies have been continuously taxed, and then our brethren misjudging our motives and not realizing our burdens have weakened the action of the heart. I have made mistakes, the greatest of which was in allowing my sympathies for the people of God to lead me to take work upon me which others should have borne. [10MR38.03] p. 7, Para. 2, [1881MS].

             "Now, Ellen, calls will be made as they have been, desiring you to attend important meetings, as has been the case in the past. But lay this matter before God and make no response to the most earnest invitations. Your life hangs as it were upon a thread. You must have quiet rest, freedom from all excitement and from all disagreeable cares. We might have done a great deal for years with our pens, on subjects the people need that we have had light upon and can present before them, which others do not have. Thus you can work when your strength returns, as it will, and you can do far more with your pen than with your voice." [10MR39.01] p. 7, Para. 3, [1881MS].

            He looked at me appealingly and said, "You will not neglect these cautions, will you, Ellen? Our people will never know under what infirmities we have labored to serve them because our lives were interwoven with the progress of the work, but God knows it all. I regret that I have felt so deeply and labored unreasonably in emergencies, regardless of the laws of life and health. The Lord did not require us to carry so heavy burdens and many of our brethren so few. We ought to have gone to the Pacific Coast before, and devoted our time and energies to writing. Will you do this now? Will you, as your strength returns, take your pen and write out these things we have so long anticipated, and make haste slowly? There is important matter which the people need. Make this your first business. You will have to speak some to the people, but shun the responsibilities which have borne us down." [10MR39.02] p. 7, Para. 4, [1881MS].

             "Well," said I, "James, you are always to stay with me now and we will work together." Said he, "I stayed in Battle Creek too long. I ought to have gone to California more than one year ago. But I wanted to help the work and institutions at Battle Creek. I have made a mistake. Your heart is tender. You will be inclined to make the same mistakes I have made. Your life can be of use to the cause of God. Oh, those precious subjects the Lord would have had me bring before the people, precious jewels of light!" [10MR39.03] p. 8, Para. 1, [1881MS].

             I awoke. But this dream seemed so real. Now you can see and understand why I feel no duty to go to Battle Creek for the purpose of shouldering the responsibilities in General Conference. I have no duty to stand in General Conference. The Lord forbids me. That is enough.


Letter 17, 1881, pp. 2-4. (To W. C. White, September 12, 1881.) [10MR40.01] p. 8, Para. 2, [1881MS].

Greetings to all,

There are only two options to make of this letter.

            1.) Ellen remained a faithful servant of God, all her life.

            2.) Ellen became a servant of Satan.


I believe that Ellen remained faithful for the rest of her life, even after the death of James. I believe she purified herself as both the Bible and the authenticated Spirit of Prophecy teach, and will be saved, with James, both a part of the 144,000. I know that she was of that group, identified on page 142 of the 1858 Great Controversy, as being perfect before Christ and the Father and prepared for translation. I believe she became victorious by habit, (which is another huge subject).


Here is the core of why this letter could not be from Ellen, a faithful servant of God.


            The use of fallen angels to personate people who have died, to influence the living, is very well documented. This letter, which is attributed to be God’s communications to his faithful prophet, Ellen, is pure blasphemy. To claim the work of Satan to be the work of God is blasphemy. It is an example of the huge lengths the agents of Satan will go in war against God.


            This is a perfect fulfillment of Obadiah 1:1 where Edom, the home of Esau, the one who despised his spiritual birthright, rises up in battle against a female prophet of God. It is further fulfillment of Testimony No.20, p. 47, where God declares that the true Spirit of Prophecy would be removed from his people because they despised it.

Eccl. ix, 5, 6. neither have they any more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun."

The dead James has no more a portion in any part of life, including counseling Ellen. It is Satan that uses the dead, by impersonating them, not God.

Ps. cxv, 17. "The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence."

It would be a form of praise for the dead James to counsel Ellen.


            I believe W. C. White created this letter for his own purposes, perhaps intending, one day, to go back and destroy it. But living got in the way, it was forgotten, and death claimed his time. Another found it, and put it with his papers, and God caused this evidence to be brought to light, to prove to the believing a big source of the counterfeit SOP.

God Bless your Proving ALL Things

Ellen Dreams of James Shortly After His Death

A few days since, I was pleading with the Lord for light in regard to my duty. In the night I dreamed I was in the carriage, driving, sitting at the right hand. Father was in the carriage, seated at my left hand. He was very pale, but calm and composed. "Why Father," I exclaimed, "I am so happy to have you by my side once more! I have felt that half of me was gone. Father, I saw you die; I saw you buried. Has the Lord pitied me and let you come back to me again, and we work together as we used to?" {RY 161.1}
