  • I. Last Day Events by Ellen G. White
    • To the Reader
      • Seventh-day Adventist 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" (FE 336). In her book The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan, she graphically outlined the grand and dreadful events of the future. There is no other book like it. Maranatha, a 1976 book complied from her writings, also deals with the fulfillment of last-day Bible prophecies. (LDE 7)
  • II. The Crisis Ahead by Robert W. Olson
    • Introduction
      • This compilation has been prepared for use in the Gift of Prophecy class at Pacific Union Collage. It is not an attempt to dogmatically finalize on the sequence of future events, but it is rather a gathering together, for study purposes, of the most important Ellen G. White statements relating to those prophecies which remain to be fulfilled prior to the return of Christ. These quotations have been outlined in what appears to be to be a logical order but this has been done without prejudice toward alternate or opposite views held by others. (CA 2)
  • III. Maranatha

"About His coming cluster the glories of that 'restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began,' (Acts 3:21). Then the long-continued rule of evil shall be broken; 'the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.' (Revelation 11:15). (GC 299-301)

    • Introduction
      • They should know the things that will come to pass before the closing up of the world's history. These things concern our eternal welfare, and teachers and students should give more attention to them. (6T 129)
