Chapter 31—Visions That Early Called for Reforms

Attention Called to Tobacco, Tea, and Coffee in 1848 and 1851

I have seen in vision that tobacco was a filthy weed, and that it must be laid aside or given up. Unless it is given up, the frown of God will be upon the one that uses it, and he cannot be sealed with the seal of the living God.—Letter 5, 1851. [James White in The Review and Herald, November 8, 1870, puts the time of the vision in the fall of 1848. See Introduction.] 3SM 273.1
