“The work committed to me forty years ago I must carry forward as long as life shall last. I will not shun to declare the whole counsel of God. Unpleasant as it may be, I must warn, reprove, rebuke, as God bids me, whether the carnal heart will accept or reject the words of warning. For forty years, Satan has made the most determined efforts to cut off this testimony from the church; but it has continued from year to year to warn the erring, to unmask the deceiver, to encourage the desponding. My trust is in God. I have learned not to be surprised at opposition in any form or from almost any source.  I expect to be betrayed, as was my Master, by professed friends.”  {Ellen White, Review & Herald, October 16, 1883, par. 17}

 

The Betrayal Comes a month later! - November 20, 1883 – General Conference Proceedings – recorded in the November 27, 1883 Review & Herald – A committee of five were voted and approved to now take charge of the Testimonies under the following reasons:  “Many of these testimonies were written under the most unfavorable circumstances, the writer being too heavily pressed with anxiety and labor to devote critical thought to the grammatical perfection of the writings, and they were printed in such haste as to allow these imperfections to pass uncorrected.”

 

The initial five of the committee include Ellen White’s own son, Willie White, plus Uriah Smith, Joseph Waggoner, Stephen Haskell and George Butler.  This action would allow an open door into the future for so much to take place going forward with assistants and changes to her work.
