Introduction

Subject Matter And The Study Guides:

On this page you will find a wide variety of downloadable study guides, booklets and other resources. 

These study guides were compiled over the course of many years, cover a wide range of subjects, and consist of relevant Scriptures and quotations drawn from the writings of Ellen White unless indicated otherwise.

 

Lines Numbers Facilitate Discussions

To enable efficient discussions, most of the study guides include line numbers to enable participants to quickly focus on the same portion of the document. I used line numbers in my 450 plus page syllabus when teaching church history in the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary and found the line numbers allowed my students to all be on the same line in mere seconds. 

 

Study Guides Reflect In-depth Studies of Ellen White's Writings.

I have been collecting quotations most of my adult life, but did so on a superficial basis initially, seeking to know what Ellen White said, but not seeking in-depth knowledge of what she thought on the particular subject. That changed when I was invited to do the research on the transformation of self section for the Ellen G. White Encyclopedia (published by Pacific Press and copyrighted in 2013) that was edited by Denis Fortin and Jerry Moon. Being instructed that the the outcome was to reflect her understandings and not mine, I was confronted with the need to not only study everything she said on the subject, but also the need to compile the information in a way that would allow later analyzation. The Lord blessed in this regard, and I gathered more than 1,500 pages of quotes on transformation, out of which came the few pages of summary information that appeared in the encyclopedia. Since that time I have been using the same rigor in most of my word studies of Ellen White. Accordingly the study guides posted on this page are the result of careful word studies, and reflect hundreds of pages of quotations on a particular subject. 

In studying, I use key words and word pairs to find quotations. Because Ellen White had a broad vocabulary of old English words that are rarely used in our day, the key to finding quotations is discovering the words she used. By searching out key words and word pairs, the Lord has enabled me to find many quotations that were previously little known. In researching I not only read the quotation, but often the entire article and the articles coming before and after, since they sometimes follow the same subject matter, to enable collecting as many quotes as possible. In the course of that reading I come across articles that are carefully saved for future reference, as well as quotes on additional subjects that will later be studied.

My wife refers to me as a "miner," in that I find a vein of truth and continue studying until I have found everything I can find on the subject. I am guilty of being such a miner, and find that I can pass hours happily looking through hundreds of quotations on a particular subject. 

My method of collecting quotes allows me to keep track of what I am studying and gaining much information on them very easily. I have shared my method with others, and there is always interest. In fact, one person asked, "Where were you twenty years ago when I needed you," and shared his challenge in keeping track of all the quotes that he had collected. I believe God showed me the method and has blessed my collecting of quotes. So He gets all the credit!

So these study guides are in-depth word studies of Ellen White's writings and the relevant Scriptures. I am confident that you will read things and learn things here you have not heard before. 

 

How To Use These Resources:

Individuals use these guides for personal growth in their quiet time. Pastors use them to learn more and to prepare sermons. Churches use them to facilitate small group studies, prayer meetings, etc.

 

Printing the Study Guides

I have provided the guides in a variety of formats, including letter, A5, A4 and double-sided booklets—I believe that these are the main formats used in the world. To print booklets you must have a printer able to do double-sided printing or know how to print booklets by having each side printed in the right way to end up with a complete booklet. Feel free to contact me if you have questions (discipleheart@protonmail.com).

 

Further Study-Egwwhite.org:

Many groups take the quotations as a springboard to find more resources by reading the original document the quotation came from. The egwwhite.org site has all of Ellen White's writings as well as many other books and resources. Of Ellen White's writings there are more than 100,000 pages of material. Finding the original document is accordingly very challenging. The easiest way to find it is to put some of the words of the quotation being studied in quotation marks (for example, "as the needle to the pole"), and enter them into the egwwhite.org data base of her writings. Clicking return you will have a whole list of documents that have that particular sequence of words. Scroll down till you find the same document. I personally use the legacy database since it is the one I am most accustomed to.

 

Further Study-Disciplheart.com 

Discipleheart.com has over 700 pages of resources and constitutes a veritable ocean of information on a wide variety of subjects. Many of the study guides provided on this page reflect subject matter that is found in other sections on discipleheart. On those pages you will find pages with quotes, key articles, answers to questions, audio, written sermons, etc. Accordingly make sure you take time to explore the other resources available on the same subject on other sections of this website.

 

Non-Commercial Use Only:

These resources are provided for personal group and church study purposes. Commercial use is forbidden.

Multi-Part GODHEAD Study (Trinity)

What began as a casual conversation on the Trinity eventually resulted in a  four year study of Ellen White's quotations—more than 1,500 pages of quotes—and another year in preparing five Bible Studies on the subject. I am working on a compilation of the main quotes that I hope will be available later.

The Eternal Father

The Eternal Father

The first study looks at the attributes of the Father, the role of Christ in representing and communicating with humankind on behalf of the Father, and some of what the  Bible says relative to the Father's love for humankind.

Christ

Christ: The Eternal, Self-Existent, Co-Equal, Divine Saviour

The second study on Christ, the eternal, self-existent, co-equal, Divine Saviour, provides compelling evidence for  the Deity of Christ, and features over three hundred texts establishing His eternal and self-existent personhood in the Godhead. Among the lines of evidence are Christ’s appropriation of the title “I AM,” four irrefutable evidences cited by Christ early in His ministry, further supernatural evidence during His earthly sojourn, Christ’s identification as God throughout the Scriptures, Christ’s communicative role in the Old Testament, Christ accepting the worship of many individuals during His time on earth, the command to worship the creator at the end of time, welcoming Christ as God at the time of the second coming, Christ being the object of many prophecies that were fulfilled in His time on earth, His many supernatural works, Christ’s many claims that only Deity could make and Christ's many assurances that only Deity could give. Attention is then given to evidence in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy for His being a distinct Person of the Godhead, His pre-existence and everlasting life, His self-existence and equality with God, what Ellen White believed on the subject—irrefutable proof, His non-communicable attributes, His transformative work in our days, His welcoming our prayers and His soon return. There are very helpful footnotes that provide further clarification.

Bible Study and Spirit of Prophecy Quotations on the Eternal Existence of Christ

This Bible study carefully looks at what the Bible says about Christ's eternal existence, as well as exhaustively examines what Ellen White says on the subject. I believe every statement she makes on the eternal duration of Christ's life is listed. You will be very blessed looking at this study.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit: Christ's Representative, Successor, a Distinct Personage and Third Member of the Eternal Godhead

The third study on the Holy Spirit, Christ’s Representative, Successor, distinct Person and Member of the Eternal Godhead, provides compelling evidence for the Deity of the Holy Spirit. Lines of evidence include the uncommunicable attributes of the Holy Spirit, the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament, in the life of Christ, in the teachings of Christ, in the promises fulfilled in the early church and in the writings following the book of Acts. Two sections look at the many actions of the Holy Spirit that only a person could have done, and actions that only a God could have done. More than 200 Scripture references are cited—some duplicated—in making the case.

Three & One

The “Eternal” Three & “The LORD our God, the LORD is one!”

The final study, the “Eternal Three,” and “The LORD our God, the LORD is one,” first looks at the many times the three members of the Godhead are mentioned in the Old Testament and the New Testament together, and the little known but many wonderful “Three” statements—“heavenly Trio,” “Heavenly dignitaries,” “Highest powers in heaven,” etc.—in the writings of Ellen White. The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of three Deities in the Godhead. The study also looks at “our LORD is one” in Deuteronomy 6:4, giving compelling reasons why we can accurately speak of three persons and at the same time speak of one God.

REVIVAL

We are told that a revival of true godliness is our greatest and most urgent need. The following resources were prepared to assist believers in their quest to be revived.

Revival Now!

In the course of studying on transformation, the immediate subject being dying to self, I came across many quotations on revival that I had never seen before. Over time I collected them and compiled them in this little booklet that is based on Ellen White’s statement where she lists “confession, humiliation, repentance and earnest prayer,” as the pathway to genuine revival. Rose and I printed 15,000 copies of this booklet and shared them with the people attending the General Conference in San Antonio, TX. It has been used throughout the world to good effect.

VICTORY& MORE ABUNDANT LIVING

The More Abundant Life (Compilation)

For several years I taught on the subject of righteousness by faith at the Campus Program held at the University of Michigan. In the course of that teaching I prepared a study guide filled with questions, Bible citations and Spirit of Prophecy quotations on righteousness by faith. Over time I learned more about “the will,” partaking of the divine nature and other important related topics. During this time I also completed the research for the “transformation” section of the encyclopedia on the writings of Ellen White. All of this subject matter is included in this life-changing booklet. astor Julio Flores translated the More Abundant Life booklet into a Spanish version that immediately follows.

La Vida Victoriosa Más Abundante (Spanish)

Pastor Julio Flores translated the More Abundant Life booklet into this Spanish version. In doing the translation, he checked every quotation to make sure it reflected the meaning of the original English version. Because this compilation includes many little known retranslated quotations, this document is an important development in the study of righteousness by faith and the life of victory.

El pastor Julio Flores tradujo el folleto Vida Más Abundante a esta versión en español. Al hacer la traducción, revisó cada cita para asegurarse de que reflejaba el significado de la versión original en inglés. Debido a que esta compilación incluye muchas citas retraducidas poco conocidas, este documento es un avance importante en el estudio de la justificación por la fe y la vida de victoria.

Overcoming Satan’s Attacks (Compilation)

This compilation reflects research that began during a speaking trip in England when we were asked to pray for a young woman who was being tormented by Satan. Rose and I joined others in praying for this young adult and were pleased to see the power of prayer based on Bible promises prevail. I was struck by the fact we were praying from Christ’s position of victory and we were not to act as if we were victims. As a result we praised and claimed promises and rejoiced in the good things God was doing. I also studied and was gratified by the many quotations that support this position. Accordingly, I began collecting quotes on the subject. This is not an exhaustive list, but certain contains many instructive statements on how Satan operates and how God responds to our prayers. This is a very lengthy compilation.

The Victorious Life & How To Obtain (Article by Meade MacGuire)

Meade MacGuire, pastor, General Conference officer and revivalist, was the author of several books and numerous articles on the subject of victory. After Ellen White, I believe his books are the best on the subject even though they are out of print and little known. You can get them in pdf form on various web sites, including discipleheart.com. This little booklet is based on an article that appeared in the Australasian Record in 1921.

My Experience With Righteousness By Faith (Carlyle B. Haynes)

Carlyle B. Haynes was a leading and highly esteemed evangelist in the early 1900s. The talk rendered in this booklet was given at the General Conference of 1926. In the course of the discourse, he shared how he had been preaching evangelistic messages for fifteen years without being converted—though he thought he was converted, and how he finally came to know Jesus as his personal savior. This wonderful talk speaks to the struggles that many sincere Seventh-day Adventists confess regarding knowing Jesus and His power in their lives. You will have some excellent discussions on righteousness by faith in studying this booklet.
