people who have been blest by the writings of Ellen White speak out to
say what these books mean to them and why they personally know them to

TESTIMONIAL: Without personal doubt of any kind, I attest to the truth
of the "Spirit of Prophecy," within the writings of EGW, and
although I have had to study the words of many on the Internet who would
"have evidence against her," I have found after much study and
questioning, this evidence is non-existent! Anyone having truly studied
her writings with godly spiritual zeal, and a driven desire to know the
truth, for it alone is able to set us free, is able to put down the
supposed evidences of lies and Scriptural misquotations into the dust,
recognizing the Holy Spirit's workings in leading the meek and lowly in
heart into a sphere of understanding that cannot be gainsayed, though
the trumpeters that would try be many, though the nay-sayers against
this truth, converge on the believers even from among our very ranks!
This too was prophesied! Where are they who at this point in time are
able to truthfully doubt that Ellen White was not led of Yahweh's
Spirit, when it is more obvious than ever before, that papal Rome has
advanced to exactly where she should be, before the Dragon gives her
that Seat that will have the whole world this time, bow down and adore
him, in and through the Man of Sin? My desires to those who have left
The Writings: Come back to the truth, for these words were penned to
lead us through the Time of Trouble, that we might be that Little
Family, ready to receive Jesus in His glory, without having to go
through first death to do so! Will you refuse to be among us NOW, when
you have traveled this great way, and the cross we've known about, be
just before us? I must walk with truth, though all will tell me I have
lost my mind, for I would be with Jesus!

Statement for sp.of Proph. website. (A wonderful testimony for Health
Reform and Country Living!)
In March of 1991 we had a lovely baby boy. He was so perfect and
beautiful and for the first 15 months of his life he never cried much. He
was as happy and lively, and content as his 2 year old sister. They
laughed and giggled at each other and were very responsive to being spoken
Then at 15 months of age I took him in to get his first round of
childhood shots. He screamed for 42 hours straight not eating, not
nursing, not even sleeping. I kept calling the physician, but he assured
me that babies do this and all was fine. Finally he dropped into an exhausted
sleep, but when he awoke he was a different child, Cross, tearful,
lethargic, and most of all a clinging vine to mother, not wishing to
explore his world which he had been so eager to do before.
At 18 months of age we -like trusting fools- took him in for round two
of the shots. More screaming for 48 hours non-stop, then he started having
seizures and the bends, I rushed him to the hospital 3 blocks away, by the
time I got him there he was not breathing. They got him going again, but
became upset and demanded some answers, so they brought a specialist in
from another city and he began to test my son. At two weeks from the time
of inoculation my son had over 110 times the amount of LIVE polio vaccine
in his blood.
The new Physician told me that he would back me in court because of
what they had done to my child. I had just become a S.D.A. and did not
wish to sue anyone. I told him it would be o.k. that God would see us
through. He then stated, "You will have a life time of trouble with
this boy and if he doesn't come down with polio by 18 years of age I will
be surprised." They had also found that he was hypoglycaemic from it.
Causing wide mood swings and shaking first thing in the A.m.
I took him home and dropped on my knees and told the Lord that we
had given him our son already and that if he was ready to take him to
spare him this lifelong suffering I would understand. I begged him for
help in raising the child and plead with God for wisdom to help him become
normal. For years he suffered motor sensory disorder, where a light touch
on the skin would cause him to scream but a hard bang he could not feel,
which made it a challenge to get him to understand that kitties and sister
and other things have nerves even if he did not.
He would sleep under his mattress instead of the blankets, The rod of
correction never hurt, so we went to cold showers, which gave him a
repentance deep and strong. But for many years now he has not even needed
that for all the prayers that have ascended in his behalf. I read and
reread the Sp. of Proph. books on child training, on diet, on the 8 laws
of health. On over-stimulation of the child ie-T.V. and city dwelling.
Determined to follow them all we gave up meat, dairy, cheese, eating in
between meals, with only two meals a day.
Because of his lack of being able to sit still for more than 3 minutes
I bought myself a pair of running shoes and have spent my life in the fields
and garden with him. My husband got a job with very little pay but the
wonderful benefits of country life working on a 3 thousand acre ranch have
been outstanding. We have over 6000 different kinds of animals, cows,
goats, sheep, horses, dogs, cats, etc...
I teach my children at home. Which thing has been a major challenge
with my son for he has had many learning disabilities. But at 12 years of
age, most of his symptoms have gone away instead of getting worse. By the
age of 10 most of these children are autistic and drooling at the mouth.
Due to the hydrotherapy and herbs that we have done on my son I believe
that we have gotten most of the poisons out of his system.
He is taking piano lessons and excelling very well. Most people that
meet him today do not realize that he has had a problem, all they can see
is a very sweet, helpful boy who is very giving. All because a little lady
over 100 years ago obeyed the Lord and sat down to write out the things
the Lord had shown her would help the lives of those who desire blessing
instead of cursings. I am thankful that the Holy Spirit that prompted her
to write has prompted my heart to read and obey so that my beautiful child
so damaged by sin and ignorance has a chance to grow up into Christ; a
worthy vessel. Oh, by the way- My sons goal is to be a missionary pilot to
the far corners of the earth if time shall last. Go Michael Go! You can do
it son! Melonie
(April 26, 2003), I spoke at a church in Brooklyn, New York. The
congregation was receptive to a vegetarian lecture. They were Seventh Day
and collectively admired the work of an anti-milk pioneer, Ellen White. White warned about milk and dairy products 77 years ago, (Note-more
that that more like 100 years ago.) writing that one should
"never" eat cheese. Despite that message, most practitioners had
"strayed" and although they do not eat meat, dairy has become a major
part of their diet.
my one hour lecture, we enjoyed a two hour question and answer period.
Each time I speak, I usually get the following question:
"Is hormone-free milk healthy?"
is no such thing as hormone-free milk. The healthiest milk from the
healthiest cow is naturally loaded with lactoferrins, immunoglobulins,
steroid, and protein growth hormones. In an effort to provide their
children with healthy foods, mothers and fathers search out products
that are advertised to be "hormone free." Such
marketing is deceptive. When drinking body fluids from animals, or eating
their flesh, you ingest their naturally occurring hormones.
largest producer of so-called hormone-free milk in America is Horizon
Farms. Horizon's organic milk contains animal fat and cholesterol,
dioxins, and bacteria. The amount of somatic cells (pus) in organic
milk is lower than milk from non-organic cows, but it's still dead
white blood cells and dead bacteria. Ask yourself this question. Does
organic human breast milk sound like a delicious drink for an adult
most people know that there are substances in breast milk that are not
intended for their adult bodies. Same goes for pig's milk and dog's
milk. Same for cow's milk.
people may not be able to tolerate lactose, a milk sugar. One hundred
percent of humans are allergic to casein, a milk protein. Eighty percent
of the protein in Horizon's organic dairy products is casein, the same
glue used to adhere a label to a bottle of beer. Eat casein and your body
produces histamines, then mucous. This sludge congests your organs. Give
up all milk and dairy products for just one week and an internal
"fog" will lift from your body.
genetically engineered milk dangerous? You bet! Organic milk contains just
a little bit less of the same hormones. I find there to be very little
difference between the two.
people at Horizon want you to believe that their cows are so happy
that they've trademarked the phrase "Happy Cows." Each year, one
out of three Horizon happy cows are sent on a truck ride to hell, the
slaughterhouse. Ask Horizon if they would allow you to become witness to
the final 24 hours of a happy cow's life.
pretends to have happy cows, yet these animal's udders become so
large that it is necessary to milk them three times per day. Most
dairy farms milk their cows once or twice each day.
pretends to have happy family farms, but nothing could be more
distant from the truth. On March 9th, 1999, the World Street Journal
"Horizon buys about 40% of its milk from other organic-dairy operations,
but it has two farms of its own, in Idaho with 3,700 milking cows, and
Maryland with 500 cows. The company is looking to establish a third
farm...and have a capacity for 2,000 cows..."
Horizon runs a factory-farm operation. I've investigated the Idaho farm
which actually contains nearly 7,000 cows. Each animal produces 80
pounds of body wastes daily. That's 560,000 pounds of excrement and
urine each day entering Idaho's environment.
How does Horizon fool so many people all of the
Ellen White's 19th Century
is Ellen White? She represents many things to many people, and she is
the most translated author in the history of American literature.
1890, my grandmother was born in a small town in Russia, near the Polish
border. During that same year, most of her family escaped the deadly
pogroms which killed my great-great grandfather, and emigrated to the
United States to operate a dairy farm and raise cattle for slaughter.
Their farm was in Stillwell Corners, NJ. It was called the Greenberg Farm.
It remained a family farm until the middle of the 20th century.
My mom tells me that they milked 14 cows.
a little girl, she also remembers feeding the chickens with homegrown
corn, and digging potatoes. At about the same time my great-grandma was
milking cows and churning butter, Ellen White wrote:
and meat stimulate. These have injured the stomach and perverted the
taste." (Counsels on Diets and Foods, Page 48, written in 1870)
her 70 years of writing, White produced 50,000 pages of manuscript which
have been translated into 140 different languages. White was one of the
spiritual founders and architects of the Seventh Day Adventist Church
which today includes over 20 million members.
Day Adventists believe that Ellen White's writings are just one level
below that of scripture. They have inspired a religion, and continue to
inspire me. One of White's greatest works is her "Counsels On Diet
and Food," edited and first published in 1938.
makes a most convincing argument that we become what we eat. Her book
includes five hundred+ pages of witticisms and intellectual arguments
regarding diet. I take this opportunity to share some of my favorite
passages from White's book, Counsels on Diets and Foods:
from which milk is obtained are not always healthy. They may be diseased.
A cow may be apparently well in the morning, and die before night. Then
she was diseased in the morning, and her milk was diseased, but you did
not know it." (Page 356, written in 1870)
a mother sets a table that is a snare to her family. Flesh meats, butter,
cheese, rich pastry, spiced foods, and condiments are freely partaken of
by both young and old. These things do their work in deranging the
stomach, exciting the nerves, and enfeebling the intellect." (Page
237, written in 1890)
fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our
Creator. These foods prepared for us in as simple and natural a manner as
possible, are the most
healthful and nourishing." (Page 310, written in 1905)
are allowed to eat...cheese...Parents do not realize that they are sowing
the seed which will bring forth disease and death." (Page 350,
written in 1873)
should never be introduced into the stomach." (Page 368, written in
dietary philosophy can be summed up by these words of wisdom:
it ever be kept before the mind that the great object of hygenic reform is
to secure the highest possible development of mind and soul and
body." (Page 23, written in 1890)
last memory I have of my grandmother is of her resting in a hospital bed,
groaning, painfully dying of a cancer that had spread from her pancreas to
other internal organs. The cancer was eating her body from within. I was
only 15-years-old, and cannot swear that she was a big-time dairy user. I
do remember her last meal, though. She begged me for ice cream. I walked
from the hospital, which was located in the South Bronx, to a small store
and fulfilled her last request....
As Buffalo Bill Slew Bison, One Protester Cried
about the same time that Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were
arguing for women's rights, my friend Ellen White was writing about
rights for animals. As the Ku Klux Clan organized thousands of terrorists
to abuse black Americans, Ellen White was busy organizing over 100,000
Americans to love animals by not eating them.
Buffalo Bill killed 4,000 bison during an 18 month period to feed railroad
workers, Ellen White was urging her friends not to eat animal flesh.
General Custer experienced his last stand, Ellen White took a stand for
animals that was heard round the world. Today, her movement enjoys some 20
are some of the things she wrote more than eighty years before I was born:
are often transported long distances and subjected to great suffering in
reaching a market. Taken from the green pastures and traveling for weary
miles over the hot, dusty roads, or crowded into filthy cars, feverish and
exhausted, often for many hours deprived of food and water, the poor
creatures are driven to their death, that human beings may feast on the
animals are inhumanly treated while being brought to the slaughter. They
are literally tortured, and after they have endured many hours of extreme
suffering, are butchered. Swine have been prepared for market even while
the plague was upon them, and their poisonous flesh has spread contagious
diseases, and great mortality has followed."
animals that are brought to the slaughter seem to realize by instinct what
is to take place, and they become furious, and literally mad. They are
killed while in that state, and their flesh is prepared for market. Their
meat is poison, and has produced, in those who have eaten it, cramps,
convulsions, apoplexy, and sudden death. Yet the cause of all this
suffering is not attributed to the meat."
you know just the nature of the meat you eat, could you see the animals
when living from which the flesh is taken when dead, you would turn with
loathing from your flesh meats. The very animals whose flesh you eat, are
frequently so diseased that, if left alone, they would die of themselves;
but while the breath of life is in them, they are killed and brought to
market. You take directly into your system humors and poison of the worst
kind, and yet you realize it not."
light given me is that it will not be very long before we shall have to
give up using any animal food. Even milk will have to be discarded.
Disease is accumulating rapidly. The curse of God is upon the earth,
because man has cursed it. The habits and practices of men have brought
the earth into such a condition that some other food than animal food must
be substituted for the human family. We do not need flesh food at all. God
can give us something else."
animals are taken to market and sold for food, when they are so diseased
that their owners fear to keep them longer. And some of the processes of
fattening them for market produce disease. Shut away from the light and
pure air, breathing the atmosphere of filthy stables, perhaps fattening on
decaying food, the entire body soon becomes contaminated with foul

slaughter. Their blood has become heated. They are full of flesh, and have
been deprived of healthy exercise, and when they have to travel far, they
become surfeited and exhausted, and in that condition are killed for
many animals are sold for the city market known to be diseased by those
who have sold them, and those who buy them are not always ignorant of the
matter. Especially in larger cities this is practiced
to a great extent, and meat eaters know not that they are eating

physicians cannot account for the rapid increase of disease
among the human family. But we know that much of this suffering is
caused by the eating of dead flesh."
animals are diseased, and by partaking of their flesh, we plant the seeds
of disease in our own tissue and blood."
Ellen White was with us today, she would be 175 years old. She was truly
an amazing woman, born long before her time, and I have faith that she
will live forever.
Beethoven had gone deaf, he wrote and conducted the Ninth Symphony as his
own personal ode to joy. Imagine what Beethoven's Tenth might have sounded
like? It remains beyond our comprehension as to what dimensions Albert
Einstein would have opened while expanding upon his theory of unified
fields. The most creative of imaginations would hardly do justice to the
enchanted fields of flowers under starry nights that Vincent Van Gogh
might have translated upon canvas had he not died at 37 years of age. Try
to imagine the adult toys that Nikola Tesla or Thomas Edison might have
constructed for humankind's amusement. What unique paths to peace might
America have taken had FDR or JFK or MLK lived another five years?
I have recently discovered the writings of Ellen White. For seventy
years, this woman of prophecy related to her followers thousands of
personal revelations from God, some
lasting for a few moments and others lasting for hours. The 50,000 pages
of text that she produced serve as nutritional guidance for members of the
Seventh-day Adventist church. In 1868, White sensed that one day milk and
dairy products would no longer be safe to consume. This was White's
perception of things to come, based upon her great wisdom. She wrote:
"I wish to say that when the time comes that it is no longer safe to
use milk, cream, butter, and eggs, God will reveal this." (1868)
Thirty-four years later, White had not yet received her absolute
"dairy" vision, but she allowed for future prophecy by writing:
"Let the people be taught how to prepare food without the use of milk
or butter. Tell them that the time will soon come when there will be no
safety in using eggs, milk, cream,
or butter." (1902)
Had Ellen White been alive today, she might have written opus after
opus, symphony after symphony, merging modern day science and religion,
making more powerful our twenty-first century NotMilk movement. Other
Ellen White quotes:
"I frequently sit down to the tables of the brethren and sisters, and
see that they use a great amount of milk and sugar. These clog the system,
irritate the digestive organs, and affect the brain." (1870)
"Animals from which milk is obtained are not always healthy. They may
be diseased. I would recommend that people eat flesh meats sooner than
large quantities of milk and sugar. It would not do the injury that milk
and sugar do." (1870)
"Sugar and milk combined are liable to cause fermentation in the
stomach, and are thus harmful." (1890)
"Especially harmful are the custards and puddings in which milk,
eggs, and sugar are the chief ingredients. The use of milk and sugar taken
together should be avoided." (1893)
"The light given me is that it will not be very long before we shall
have to give up any animal food. Even milk will have to be discarded.
Disease is accumulating rapidly." (1899)
"The health food business is in need of means and of the active
cooperation of our people, that it may accomplish the work it ought to do.
Its purpose is to supply the people with food which will take the place of
flesh meat, and also milk and butter." (January 1, 1900)
"If for dessert sweet cake is eaten with milk or cream, fermentation
will be created in the stomach, and then the weak points of the human
organism will tell the story. The brain
will be affected by the disturbance in the stomach." (1900)
Ellen White's unfinished overture is soon to be completed, for I have
been touched by a similar vision.
For me, White's treatment of nutrition represents the thunderous opening
chords of Tchaikovsky's First Concerto. With a flourish, I expect to
finish her unfinished work
with my own crashing finale from Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto. The
resulting symphony will become our rhapsody upon a theme of NotMilk.
