Tenderest Words that dripped from the pen of Ellen White

 "The Lord has presented your case before me as one who was in need of that help which God alone could give you.
---I heard words of hopelessness and despair coming from your lips.
---I heard wicked words, blasphemous words.

Said Jesus, as He looked upon you piteously, "These are not the words of the man, but the words of the spirit that has possessed him."
God will heal him. He has gone far in resisting the Spirit of God, but Jesus is drawing him by the tender cords of His love.
 
He has separated from God,
but God has not separated from him.

Through a train of circumstances he has lost confidence in himself, in his best friends,
and turned from light to darkness,
from truth to error,
and has been left to feel his own weakness.
You still cling to your pride;
you utter the words of Satan abiding in your heart.

Said Christ, "It is not he but a demon that speaks. I will save him if he will trust in me as a little child trusts in his father, his mother."

 In His presence, standing under the shadow of the cross,
His mercy,
His love,
His forgiveness,
cover the blackest stains of sin.

The Lord has made provision for your simple necessities.

---When the Israelites were bitten by the fiery poisonous serpents whose sting was certain death, the brazen serpent was lifted up on a pole, and Jesus, enshrouded in the cloudy pillar, bade Moses tell them, "Look and live."
---The same Jesus has bidden me tell you, Look and live. Do not climb the pole, but only look. I present Christ to you. Look and live. There is hope, comfort, and peace for you. There is even joy in the Holy Ghost for you. Now I bid you in the name of Jesus, Look and live.

You may say, "Oh, I am a great sinner." I admit it; Jesus is well acquainted with all this, and He says, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" [Mark 2:17]. He has paid the ransom money for your soul...Will you allow Satan to triumph? He has unbalanced your mind, so that you are not able to reason calmly and sensibly.

 Lay your sin on Jesus; leave it to Him;
then do what He tells you to do, as a little child,
irrespective of consequences.

Shall Christ have died for you in vain?
You are unconsciously groping after the heavenly light.
Satan shall not conquer; he shall be expelled through prayer and faith.

Satan would have your soul;
shall he have it?
Say, No, never;
it is Christ's property.
Satan says, "Curse God and die." Will you do it?

 Say not, "There is no hope for me." Satan triumphs every time you say it.
Let these thoughts be in your heart, "Thou, O Lord, hast created me for Thyself." He has permitted you to live that you might become acquainted with Jesus and be willing to follow Him."
--Letter 85, 1891-Written to J. A. Starr, Sept. 22, 1891 E.G.W.
