After Ellen White's Death

E. G. White's Writings to Continue to Witness—I am to trace this testimony on paper, that should I fall asleep in Jesus, the witness to the truth might still be borne.—Letter 116, 1905. 3SM 76.3

To Speak to the End—Abundant light has been given to our people in these last days. Whether or not my life is spared, my writings will constantly speak, and their work will go forward as long as time shall last. My writings are kept on file in the office, and even though I should not live, these words that have been given to me by the Lord will still have life and will speak to the people.—Letter 371, 1907 (Published in Selected Messages 1:55.) 3SM 76.4

Messages to Be of Greater Force After Prophet's Death—Physically, I have always been as a broken vessel; and yet in my old age the Lord continues to move upon me by His Holy Spirit to write the most important books that have ever come before the churches and the world. The Lord is evidencing what He can do through weak vessels. The life that He spares I will use to His glory. And, when He may see fit to let me rest, His messages shall be of even more vital force than when the frail instrumentality through whom they were delivered, was living.—Manuscript 122, 1903. 3SM 76.5
