    Vision of Future Events

    The April issue of Present Truth, published in Oswego, carried in it an Ellen White letter addressed “To the ‘Little Flock.’” It presented a number of points of special interest opened up to her in vision on January 26, 1850 (see Early Writings, 48-52). The account closes with a glimpse of some phases of the great controversy story, related by an angel.1BIO 176.1

    I then beheld the beauty and loveliness of Jesus. His robe was whiter than the whitest white. No language can describe His glory and exalted loveliness. All, all who keep the commandments of God, will enter in through the gates into the city and have right to the tree of life and ever be in the presence of the lovely Jesus, whose countenance shines brighter than the sun at noonday....1BIO 176.2

    “The saints will rest in the Holy City and reign as kings and priests one thousand years; then Jesus will descend with the saints upon the Mount of Olives, and the mount will part asunder and become a mighty plain for the Paradise of God to rest upon.1BIO 176.3

    “The rest of the earth will not be cleansed until the end of the one thousand years, when the wicked dead are raised, and gather up around the city. The feet of the wicked will never desecrate the earth made new. Fire will come down from God out of heaven and devour them—burn them up root and branch. Satan is the root, and his children are the branches. The same fire that will devour the wicked will purify the earth.”—Ibid., 51, 52.1BIO 176.4
