[On another occasion Ellen White stated: “Again the light given me is: ‘The Lord has sent you to take hold of this work. What you have done in America under the direction of God is to be done in planting the standard of truth, and building up the work in Australia’” (GC Bulletin, 1899, p. 131).

A state of deterioration or decline. A term often associated with a spiritual danger. Ellen G. White warned against “spiritual declension,” “religious declension,” or “moral declension” (GC 253, 260, 279). Ellen G.

Without limits or an end. Ellen G. White described how at the close of the *great controversy sin will be no more and that “from Him who created all, flow life and light and gladness, throughout the realms of illimitable space” (GC 678).
