If Ellen White taught that the Holy Spirit is a third “BEING” or a literal “person” if you prefer, then the following quotes would all reveal three “BEINGS.” But if the Holy Spirit is the person of the Spirit of Christ as per the expression she used that has confused so many, then she will reveal “ONLY” two beings “ALONE” every time without fail.
“The Father and the Son ALONE are to be exalted.” — Ellen G. White, The Youth’s Instructor, July 7, 1898 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
Did she say the Father, Son and Holy Spirit ALONE are to be exalted? No she did not!
And again, “God and Christ ALONE know what the souls of men have cost.” — Ellen G. White, Signs of the Times, January 13, 1909 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
“God informed Satan that to his Son ALONE he would reveal his secret purposes, and he required all the family in heaven, even Satan, to yield him implicit, unquestioned obedience;” — Ellen G. White, Signs of the Times, January 9, 1879 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
“Can anyone consider the condescension of God in preparing the gospel feast, and its great cost, and treat the invitation slightingly? No man, nor even the highest angel, can estimate the great cost; it is known ONLY to the Father and the Son.” — Ellen G. White, The Bible Echo, October 28, 1895
— ONLY TWO BEINGS
If the Holy Spirit was a third co-equal being then it would also know. But since it is the Spirit of Christ, then not so.
“The ONLY Being who was one with God lived the law in humanity, descended to the lowly life of a common laborer, and toiled at the carpenter’s bench with His earthly parent.” — Ellen G. White, Signs of the Times, October 14, 1897 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
“CHRIST the Word, the only-begotten of God, was one with the eternal Father,-one in nature, in character, and in purpose,-the ONLY being in all the universe that could enter into all the counsels and purposes of God. By Christ, the Father wrought in the creation of all heavenly beings.” — Ellen G. White, The Great Controversy, p. 493 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
A Trinitarian cannot make any of these statements above. There can be no doubt that Ellen White declares that there are “ONLY” two beings “ALONE” as the third entity is not a third BEING but the Spirit of Christ. All the above is just a small example of what could be given. Ellen White not only states hundreds of times in different ways that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, and hence not a third being, but she also confirms that there are only two beings.
“God is our Father, Christ is our Saviour. See 2 Peter 1:16-21.” – Ms43, p. 1896.7, Dec. 27, 1896
ONLY TWO BEINGS
How many beings does the Bible say there are? “But to us there is but ONE God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and ONE Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.” 1 Corinthians 8:6 — ONLY TWO BEINGS
