Copied from a letter of James White to Elvira Hastings, begun August 22, 1847.3 Previously unpublished.

Clarification of the prediction that prior to the Second Advent the voice of God will announce the day and the hour of Jesus’ coming. 1EGWLM 133.3

P.S. In your letter4 you say “Sister White mentions God spoke the day and hour of Jesus’ coming,” and you inquired “I should like to know if it is to be spoken before we all hear it.”5 To this question I answer by writing Ellen's words that she has just spoken while lying on the bed beside my writing stand.6 “Tell her that none hear the voice until all hear it. Then every living child of God will hear and know the voice of God as He gives us the day and hour. Then joy and glory will fill every heart.” J. W. [James White] 1EGWLM 133.4
