E. G. White Says Prophesies of Daniel 11 & 12 Repeat
By Kay Wolfe
Foreword by Ron: Over the years since 1986, I have quoted Ellen White’s statement on Daniel 11, and the fact that she said that the prophesies of Daniel have nearly been fulfilled, and begins with verse 30-36. Here, another individual, Kay Wolfe, quotes an article by Don Neufeld:
The false chart we have been discussing begins Daniel 11, with verses 15-19, which according to Ellen White, have been fulfilled. Once again, the chart contradicts Ellen White. Ellen White clearly states that:
“As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation [the United States] in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. " Maranatha 180
The above mentioned “enforcing” refers to fines and/or imprisonment that will be enforced from the very beginning of the National Sunday Law, and not the death decree or the no buy/sell decree which comes on day 1290.
In A.D. 66, the Roman General Cestius Gallus, descended upon Jerusalem with his army. Soon after, he left, and there was a 3 ½ year time of respite during which all the true Christians fled to Pella, in Perea. Ellen White directly parallels this event to the decree ENFORCING Sunday Law, and not blues laws being established, because they have been on the books of every state except Alaska, for many decades. Thus, establishing Sunday blue laws cannot be the sign of the abomination as mentioned in Matthew 24:15, 16, and cannot serve as a warning for Ezekiel 9, as the false chart depicts. Only the Legislated Sunday Law can begin the sign that begins a 3 ½ rule of the antichrist, Revelation 13:1-5, and the full healing of the wound will not be complete until that time.
In the PREFIGURE (TYPE), true Christians were given a respite warning of the onslaught of Ezekiel 9—even a 3 ½ year warning before Ezekiel 9 destruction occurred. In the Will Ross chart, no Adventist will be given ANY WARNING WHATSOEVER. It will be BOOM…! Ezekiel 9 slaughter according! No warning! Because blue laws enacted IS NOT THE SPECIFIED WARNING BY ELLEN WHITE. But forget Ellen White for a moment. There will be no Matthew 24 warning as well. So the Will Ross chart thus contradicts the Bible as well as Ellen White.
The two men who designed the Will Ross/Ezekiel 9 chart in question, began two years ago to adamantly say that Ezekiel 9 is the same as the Will Ross Statement. They are still saying this to me. They won’t put it on their chart, and they won’t let me quote them on my Website. I gave the name of one of them once, and he call the Webhost and had my Website removed. I got it back the same day. This gives insight into the character of these men. They are secretive about their identity, and Ellen White says that all that is not as open as the day is of Satan. When they sent their chart to me recently, they said it was the result of the working of the Holy Spirit, so why are they afraid to be named? Why are they afraid to put Will Ross’ name to their chart, when they adamantly contend that Ezekiel 9 is the same as his statement?
E.G. WHITE SAYS PROPHECIES OF DANIEL 11 & 12 REPEAT
Here are several quotations from the Spirit of Prophecy, some of them taken from the article in the Review and Herald, written by Elder Don Neufeld in 1976. These show that prophecies have been fulfilled in prophetic time, and that these same prophecies will be repeated. Since “..prophetic time closed in 1844,...” Early Writings, p. 243, the future fulfillment of these prophecies must be in literal time.
"The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place." 9T 14
Elder Don Neufeld wrote an article published in the Review and Herald, July 8, 1976, when he was one of the editors. The title is, "Light on Daniel 11".
"Recently our attention was directed to a letter Ellen White wrote in 1904 in which there is a slight amplification of the statement quoted from Testimonies, volume 9, above, She comments, "We have no time to lose. Troublous times are before us. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place. The prophecy in the eleventh [chapter] of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Much of the history that has taken place in fulfillment of this prophecy will be repeated. In the thirtieth verse a power is spoken of that 'shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strenth, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
"'And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help; but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
"'And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.' Dan. 11:30-36.
"Scenes similar to those described in these words will take place. We see evidence that Satan is fast obtaining the control of human minds, who have not the fear of God before them. let all read and understand the prophecies of this book, for we are now entering upon the time of trouble spoken of:--
"'At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time they people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.' Dan. 12:1-4.
"The Spirit of the Lord is being withdrawn from the world. It is no time now for men to exalt themselves."----Letter 103, 1904 pp. 5, 6.
Elder Neufeld continues:
"The phrases "will be repeated," and "will take place" point to the future. These comments suggest that whereas the prophecy has had a valid fulfillment in the past, much of the history will be repeated."
After Daniel sees most of the vision of chapter 12, he records two questions asked by someone of the man clothed in linen who was upon the waters of the river, quoted in Testimonies to Ministers, p.114, 115. Ellen White states that twice Daniel asked, "HOW LONG TILL THE END OF TIME?" This statement is recorded below.
"A wonderful connection is seen between the universe of heaven and this world. The things revealed to Daniel were afterward complemented by the revelation made to John on the Isle of Patmos. These two books should be carefully studied. Twice Daniel inquired, How long shall it be to the end of time? TM 114
"And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And He said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days." TM 115
The answers given to Daniel' questions are the 1260 days, 1290 days, and the 1335 days. The 1260 days have had previous fulfillments, one in prophetic time--a day for a year, which was 1260 years of the Dark Ages, and, also, in literal time--a day for a day. The evidence indicates that in the future these time periods will, again, have a fulfillment in literal time.
"....prophetic time closed in 1844,..." Early Writings, p. 243.
We know that at the anti-typical Jubilee (Biblical Jubilee), the saints are delivered from the death decree, the ruling power of the beast is over, and God's voice gives the day and hour of the second coming. Daniel 12:7 shows that the 1260 days ends at that time when the power of the holy people is scattered.
"It was at midnight that God chose to deliver His people....And as God spoke the day and the hour of Jesus' coming and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth. The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upward, listening to the words as they came from the mouth of Jehovah and rolled through the earth like peals of loudest thunder. It was awfully solemn.....
Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest...." Early Writings, 285, 286
The "abomination of desolation" that begins the last 1260 days in Daniel 11:31, would be described as, the mark of the beast, in Revelation 14:9.
"The time is not far distant, when, like the early disciples, we shall be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places. As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians, so the assumption of power on the part of our nation [the United States] in the decree enforcing the papal sabbath will be a warning to us. " Maranatha 180
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities." When do her sins reach unto heaven? When the law of God is finally made void by legislation." Maranatha 179
"The Sabbath question will be the issue in the great conflict in which all the world will act a part. [Revelation 13:4-10 quoted.] This entire chapter is a revelation of what will surely take place [Revelation 13:11, 15-17 quoted]" (MS 88, 1897). 7BC 979
In the statement above, written in 1897, almost 100 years after the 1260 years of prophetic time had ended, Ellen White is pointing to the future for the fulfillment of the ENTIRE chapter of Revelation 13. In verse 5, which she quotes, the beast is given power for 42 months, to make war with the saints and cause everyone to worship him whose names are not written in the book of life. This 42 months is the same period as the 1260 days.
