Life Incidents, by James S. White Part 1:

This audio book is an autobiography of the author and also tells the story and early beliefs of the believers in the Second Advent, or coming, of Jesus Christ in the clouds of heaven in 1844.  It clearly explains the disappointment of these believers and gives hope for today in the 21st century for those of us who are still waiting for the soon return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

 

The Story of Daniel the Prophet, by Stephen N. Haskell:

This The prophecies of the Bible are like rare diamonds lying hidden in the solitude of the mine. The practiced eye of the prospector discovers the gems, and intuitively reads their value; and the skillful hand of the lapidary brings out their many-faced beauties in all their sparkling glory. Every facet shines like the sun. One can not exhaust a diamond; neither can one exhaust the prophecies. New facets remain to be polished, to add their brilliant reflection to the whole. In the prophecies as many features appear as there are different temperaments that men bring to their study.

The prophecy of Daniel is no exception. This book has lessons for all classes. Because the magnitude of the field of his vision is unlimited in extent, it may be studied from points of view which no man can number. The historian feasts upon his records. The chronologist delights in calculating his periods. The lover of the Messiah rejoices in the contemplation of the times and events that led to his first advent, and demonstrated his Messiahship. And the friend of God traces with pleasure the providential movements by which the course of events has been controlled, and men have been put up, and cast down, just according as they have been instruments in God's hands to carry out his beneficent designs and purposes.

Life Sketches:

Get a more personal glimpse into the life of God’s messenger in Life Sketches of Ellen White. In these pages (provided all in audio) Ellen White recounts, in her own words, a brief account of her childhood days, and her early Christian experience in connection with the great second advent movement of 1840 to 1844. She vividly recalls the sorrows and joys of youthful ministry in the years following the Great Disappointment. She pictures the struggles and successes that attended the efforts of the small band of earnest souls who built up the work that would eventually become the Seventh-day Adventist Church. She goes on to tell of the extended labors of herself and her husband from their marriage until his death in 1881.

 

The Spaulding-Magan Unpublished Manuscript Testimonies:

THIS VOLUME IS AN invaluable collection of Spirit of Prophecy counsels by Ellen White given originally to a number of Seventh-day Adventist pioneers. Also included are related letters from W. W. Prescott, W. C. White, James White, Uriah Smith, C. C. Crisler, Edson White, and Dr. David Paulson.

These inspired, and inspiring, counsels have been distributed on a private publication basis since 1915-1916. The term “Unpublished” in its title was in reference to it not being published by the White Estate or the Church organization. In 1990, the Ellen G. White Estate included the Ellen White portions of the material on Version 1.0 (and subsequent versions) of the Ellen G. White Writings on Compact Disc with the title “SpM - Spalding and Magan Collection (1985).”

This present version (provided all in audio) is a complete and unabridged edition of the original 1915-1916 “Unpublished” compilation by A. W. Spalding and P. T. Magan. The material from all of the above named original contributors is included and not just the Ellen White material as on the White Estate CD. There is still phrasing present the meaning of which is not the most clear. This wording has not been changed.

 

Special Testimonies B:

During the decade which followed the 1888 General Conference session held in Minneapolis, Minnesota,—important messages came from Ellen White to the Central Church at Battle Creek, to the General Conference Committee, and to other responsible men at the heart of the work. These messages, much more abundant than Series A, were printed and distributed in tract form as Special Testimonies to the Battle Creek Church and Special Testimonies to Ministers and Workers. This group of messages became known as Special Testimonies, Series B. Inspiring messages from the Lord’s servant, and important counsel to specific individuals and groups are to be found in this little known collection (provided all in audio). These comments and admonitions were directed to leadership during the tumultuous years of the issue of righteousness by faith at the 1888 General Conference Session; the 1901 General Conference Session with its reorganization of the Church; the loss by fiery judgment of both the Battle Creek Sanitarium and the Review and Herald Publishing House; the apostasy of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg with the final loss to the organization of the rebuilt sanitarium; the move of the General Conference headquarters to Washington D.C., and the establishment of Loma Linda and multiple other sanitariums. See the Preface and the Historical Foreword to Testimonies to Ministers for further background information regarding these important times of church history.

Some of the tracts have more than one version—a, b, and even c. This is because, at times, a publisher would print a later version with different articles but with the same name. On one occasion, two different publishers printed a tract with differing articles but each publisher gave their tract the same name that the other did. All versions of the tracts are in this publication.

To Brethren in Responsible Positions, November, 1890 "BRETHREN IN RESPONSIBLE positions, you are in danger. I lift my voice in warning. Beware. Unless you watch, and keep your garments unspotted from the world, Satan will stand as your captain. It is no time now to hide your colors, no time to turn traitor, when the battle presses sore. It is no time to lay down or hide our weapons, and give Satan the advantage in the warfare. Watchmen on the walls of Zion must be wide awake. Call to your fellow-watchmen in no sleepy terms, “The morning cometh, and also the night,” If no response is made, then know that the watchman is unfaithful. It is no time now to relax our efforts, to become tame and spiritless; no time to hide our light under a bushel; to speak smooth things, to prophesy deceit. No, no; there is no place for sleepy watchmen on the walls of Zion. Every power is to be employed wholly and entirely for God. Maintain your allegiance, bearing testimony for God and for truth. Be not turned aside by any suggestions the world may make. We can make no compromise. There is a living issue before us, which will be of vital importance to the remnant people of God, to the very close of this earth’s history; for eternal interests are here involved. We are to look constantly to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Captain of our salvation... In all he did, he was working out the will of his Father, so that his life on earth was a manifestation of the divine perfection. The union of divinity with humanity in Christ, was to reveal to us God’s purpose to bring men into the closest connection with himself. We cannot possibly be happy without him." SpTA01b - An Appeal to Our Ministers and Conference Committees (1892).

 

Spiritual Gifts, Volumes 1-4:

Preface to Reprinted Edition: Among the most treasured volumes in the libraries of many of the old Seventh-day Adventist workers are the early editions of the E. G. White books, particularly "Spiritual Gifts," Volumes I-IV, published from 1858-1864. Through the passage of the years the fuller E. G. White presentations have replaced these small original volumes, which have become quite rare and much sought after. Provided all in audio.

 

The Madison School:

It wasn't at all the place that E. A. Sutherland wanted on which to begin a self-supporting school for the people of the South. But when the Morning Star, on which he and Ellen White, her son, and several other of her companions were travelling had to be docked for repairs, they found themselves within walking distance of a plantation that was for sale. "Not that place," Sutherland said. "Surely not that run-down rocky plantation."

E. A. Sutherland accepts the counsel of Mrs. White and realised that nothing is too hard for the Lord when one accepts His plan and dedicates himself to following the blueprint. Although many times he could not understand "why" or "how," Sutherland relied on God's omnipotence. The results of his abiding trust became a silent witness to the permanency of the vision in the achievements of the educational work at Madison and many other self-supporting institutions.

There is no limit to the usefulness of one who, by putting self aside makes room for the working of the Holy Spirit upon his heart, and lives a life wholly consecrated to God." These words penned by Mrs. White, a friend and counselor of Dr. Sutherland, he took to heart and thus fulfilled God's purpose not only in his own life but in the lives of others by his influence. This is the E. A. Sutherland story.
