Illness in the End Times
« on: February 12, 2012, 05:51:54 PM »

I've heard before that somewhere in the writings of Ellen White she states that in the end times many of God's people will goto their rest (mainly the elderly I suppose) because they would be unable to physically endure the time of trouble.  Has anyone heard this and if so where did she write this? Thank you.

Yes, it's there somewhere. Early Writings?

Quote from: CH 375
The Lord "doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men." Lamentations 3:33. "Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him. For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust." Psalm 103:13, 14. He knows our heart, for He reads every secret of the soul. He knows whether or not those for whom petitions are offered would be able to endure the trial and test that would come upon them if they lived. He knows the end from the beginning. Many will be laid away to sleep before the fiery ordeal of the time of trouble shall come upon our world. This is another reason why we should say after our earnest petition; "Nevertheless not my will, but Thine, be done." Luke 22:42. Such a petition will never be registered in heaven as a faithless prayer. (CH 375)

Quote from: 2SM 259
This promise is yours. You may be comforted and trust in the Lord. The Lord has often instructed me that many little ones are to be laid away before the time of trouble. We shall see our children again. We shall meet them and know them in the heavenly courts. Put your trust in the Lord, and be not afraid.--Letter 196, 1899. (2SM 259)
