The Visions of Ellen White

On this page you'll find links to eyewitness accounts dealing with three different aspects of Ellen White's visions: 1) The supernatural phenomena that attended her visions. 2) The depiction in these visions of things that no one knew anything about. 3) The timely counsel contained in these visions that helped the recipients of that counsel avoid some embarrassing situations.

Eyewitness Descriptions of Supernatural Phenomena

Angelic Influence Illustrated: Colt Tamed   While traveling to Poland Maine in a wagon drawn by a dangerous, partly-broken colt, Ellen White had a vision. During this vision the colt stayed perfectly still, though James hit it quite hard, and though Ellen put her hand on its flank. The colt was "completely tame" from that point onward.

"I Am Quite Certain That She Did Not Breathe"   Dr. Merrit G. Kellogg describes how Ellen White while in vision did not breathe. He cites the evaluation of a Dr. Drummond who was present at a vision that he witnessed. Also included on this page are the eyewitness accounts of D. H. Lamson, Drusilla Lamson, David Seeley, and the Fowlers.

"I Held Her Thus with My Hand About Ten Minutes, Long Enough for Her to Suffocate"   Five more share what they saw regarding her not breathing while in vision. Daniel Bourdeau describes how he put his hand over Ellen White's mouth and pinched her nose shut for ten minutes. Yet this did not affect her in the least.

No Breathing for 30 Minutes   John Loughborough describes the first vision of Ellen White that he ever witnessed, and how she did not breathe for about 30 minutes during it. He also relates how at that time Oswald Stowell was healed of pleurisy.

"None of the Disgusting Grimaces or Contortions Which Usually Attend Spiritualist Mediums"   George Butler adds his testimony, describing the various phenomena that occurred during Ellen White's visions. He adds that, unlike the spiritualist mediums, her demeanor in vision was "calm, dignified, and impressive, her very appearance strikes the beholder with reverence and solemnity."

A Spirit Medium Flees Away   John Loughborough recounts the time when Ellen White had a vision in Parkville, Michigan. A spirit medium who had earlier boasted that he could bring her out of vision in one minute, when coming forward to examine her, decided instead to flee the scene. Loughborough gives what he believes to be a Bible parallel of this event.

A Stone Mason Couldn't Bend Her Arm   John Loughborough tells the story about the time when his neighbor, Mr. Diagneau, was over at his house while Ellen White was having a vision. Mr. Diagneau, a stone mason, tried to bend Mrs. White's arm. Read what he had to say about his experience.

Eyewitness Accounts of Secrets Revealed

The Characters of Two Men Described   A vision describing people she had never met enabled Ellen White to point out which man was a hypocrite and which man needed to step forward in faith. The secrets of the past of two strangers were also delineated.

A Corrupt Woman Who Claimed to Be Sanctified   Though she had never met Mrs. Alcott, John Loughborough describes how Ellen White knew that she was living an immoral life. He also describes how Mrs. Alcott's claim to have the gift of tongues was proven false.

Secret Thoughts & the 7th Commandment   John Loughborough tells of his first experiences with Ellen White's visions, which included a vision rebuking a friend of his for doing something no one had a clue he had done. She had never met him before.

Eyewitness Accounts of Timely Counsel

"Don't Rebut Their Lies"   Five men, including John Loughborough and James White, laid plans to rebut the lies of certain critics, only to be warned against such a course by a timely vision. Check and see if the results of their change of plans matched the prediction of the vision.

Saved from Embarrassment and Division   Dealing with M. E. Cornell's improper conduct was about to split a new California church, but a letter written and mailed from Michigan before the situation had even developed saved the day.
