Slavery would be abolished in the 1860's and the American Civil War remains the bloodiest war ever fought on American soil. On both events Ellen White would have visions that would provide a fascinating and insightful look 'behind the scenes.'

Ellen why didn't just provide instruction to the church and individuals in it but she also received the visions that dealt with real life issues and events in contemporary society in her day she lived during the Civil War and received visions on this before and during the war if we were a wind a few years we see that the Great Awakening was linked with the abolition movement and in fact all the early Adventists pioneers abolitionists the issue of slavery would come to a head in the civil war and God would have his say on this terrible institution. South Carolina would be the 1st they feed on the 20th of December 18th $60.23 days later a white would have a 1st civil war vision in Parkville Michigan here in this church it's unlikely that she knew in the 3 days before her vision 3 more states would secede but either way it will be 3 months before the Civil War started when the Confederate forces fired on Fort Sumter in South Carolina after the Union forces had previously taken it over the conventional wisdom in the north was that there would be no civil war or if that there was it would be extremely short with the quick victory for the union L A white correctly predicted that there would be war that there would be a long war and the people in the audience that day would lose sons in the war. Per 2nd Civil War vision happened he. In the Roosevelt 7th Day Adventist Church in New York State on August 18th 61 she was standing behind this very pulpit but would have been located on the other side of the church. And that holding it was in direct contrast to the teachings of Christ she. Was using the war to punish both sides. For practicing slavery and the long suffering overreaching and overbearing influence perhaps most fascinating of all insight into the battle of Manassas sometimes called the Battle of Bull Run. On July the 21st 861 the Northern troops approached by NASA for the 1st time expecting a swift victory as they were in the ascendancy at one point in the battle they were pushing ahead when it describes an angel descended from heaven to the battlefield and waved his hand backwards Instantly there was confusion in the ranks the northern forces thought they were in retreat when it was not so in reality but a retreat commenced Lieutenant Colonel W. W. Blackfoot. But the lines of blue that had been so well defined and unbroken suddenly became. Be running away as fast as they could. Many American Civil War historians recognize a mysterious element in this battle. Understandably fail to see a supernatural element in its genesis today at the battle field you can see the various fields the recount the retreat troops and another lie. Victory That was one that day. Then her angel explained that God have this nation in his own hand and would not allow victories to be gained faster than he ordained the North was not to be allowed to win a quick decisive battle bringing an abrupt end to the war because it would be punished for condoning slavery before the war and also for not making abolition the principal issue in the war this vision to show was how got involved himself in the affairs of men and does not stand idly by as we sometimes feel. The prophetic gift was given to address a major social and political issue of the day showing the relevancy and practical side of it today there are some that say as Christians we shouldn't get involved in social issues but should just preach the gospel but while preaching the Gospel we should seek to do justly love mercy and walk humbly with our God some of the issues that have been around for centuries are still around in our day and as Christians we should seek to fight injustice and seek mercy. May our religion be practical and meet the needs of society demonstrating the love of God wherever we are.
