The Godhead in Black And White

Ellen Gould White was easily the most influential person in leading and guiding the small bands of Advent believers into what later became known as the Seventh-day Adventist church. This was done through instructions given to her in dreams and visions by the Lord. The heavenly instruction did not only include personal testimonies, but it also confirmed doctrinal truths. As the reader will clearly see in this book, the doctrinal instructions also included a clarification of the true understanding of the Godhead. Such a step was necessary, for many of the pioneering brethren came from differing backgrounds and many ideas about the Godhead were held. The divine revelations from God set a seal to the truth, which was to remain as truth till the end.

We here with present the plain and clear statements from the pen of inspiration regarding the Godhead. We pray that these pages will help to shed some light on this most wondrous, and much maligned, truth of God. May the great God of Heaven, the Father of all light and glory, bless every reader by His sweet Spirit in Christ Jesus. Theological works which do not have the ‘official stamp’ of the Seventh-day Adventist church are often accused of quoting Ellen White ‘out of context.’ For this reason, we have chosen to place all references at the end of each quotation. We strongly recommend and encourage the reader to look up the references and carefully consider the original source and context of every single quotation.

(Due to space limitations many quotes are short, citing only the relevant words. The reader is strongly encouraged and admonished to read the quotes in their entire context before attempting the charge of ‘out of context.’ If the reader has

‘Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.’ 2 Corinthians 4:1, 2, 13bible

To reveal the stark contrast between truth and error; to unmask a deadly deception of Satan, and the means by which it may be successfully discarded; to present a satisfactory weight of evidence regarding the Godhead, shedding such light upon the doctrine as to justify and make fully manifest the position of truth; and to show the holy, unchanging character of our great God, is the object of this book. That through its influence souls may be delivered from the power of darkness, and become “partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light,” to the praise of Him who loved us, and gave Himself for us, is the sincere and earnest prayer.
