Note 1. - Jesus said we can test a prophet by his fruits. (Matthew 7:15-20.) A prophet must speak according "to the law and to the testimony" - God's Word, or the Holy Bible. (Isa. 8:20.) The words of a prophet must come to pass, and they must lead people to obey God. (Deut. 13:1-4.) The condition of a prophet in vision is referred to in Daniel 10:8, 17-19. (Compare this with The Great Second Advent Movement, by J. N. Loughborough, pages 204, 205).

Note 2. - A list of Mrs. White's books is given elsewhere in this manual, and members should study them as much as they can.

Note 3. - Object of Mrs. White's writings, here called "The Testimonies."
"The testimonies are not to belittle the Word of God, but to exalt it, and attract minds to it, that the beautiful simplicity of truth may impress all." - Testimonies, Vol. 2, page 606.
"The Lord designs to warn you, to reprove, to counsel, through the testimonies given, and to impress your minds with the importance of the truth of His Word. The written testimonies are not to give new light, but to impress vividly upon the heart the truths of inspiration already revealed." - Testimonies, Vol. 2, page 605.
