 The Jone-Waggoner Message of 1888 is the third angel's message
  
The archives of Ellen White prove that she identified the
Jones-Waggoner Message of 1888 as the third angel's
message.  Ellen White distinguished their message, from all
others, as the message that God commanded to be given to
the world ...

    "The Lord in His great mercy sent a most precious
     message to His people through Elders WAGGONER  
    AND JONES.  This message was to bring more  
    prominently before the world the uplifted Saviour, the  
    sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.  It presented  
    justification through faith in the Surety;  it invited the  
    people to receive THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST,  WHICH IS
    MADE MANIFEST IN OBEDIENCE TO ALL THE  COMMANDMENTS OF
    GOD....This is the message that God commanded to be  
    given to the world.  It is the third angel's message, which  
    is to be proclaimed with a loud voice, and attended with  
    the outpouring of His Spirit in a large measure."
                      (Testimonies to Ministers [1895], pp.91,92.

The previous quote was in 1895.  So, we have solid evidence that
Ellen White consistently endorsed their message for many years.
Her  next quote dates back to the 1888 conference.


    "I see the beauty of truth in the presentation of the  
     righteousness of Christ in relation to the law as the  
     doctor [WAGGONER] has placed it before us ....That  
     which has been presented harmonizes perfectly with the  
     light which God has been pleased to give me during all  
     the years of my experience."  (Manuscript 15, 1888).

In the Review and Herald of  the same year, July 24, 1888,
EGW defined faith this way: 

    "You may say that you believe in Jesus, when you have  
      an appreciation of the  cost of salvation.  You may
      make this claim, when you feel that Jesus died for you
      on the cruel cross of Calvary; when you have an
      intelligent, understanding faith that his death makes it  
      possible for you TO CEASE FROM SIN, and to  
      perfect a  righteous character through the grace of  
      God, bestowed upon you as the purchase of Christ's  
      blood."

The  following  testimony is important because Ellen White
confirms that God had given her  the message in a vision;
and, that she and her husband had previously talked about
this teaching prior to 1888. 

    "When Brother Waggoner brought out these ideas in the  
      Minneapolis Conference it was the first clear teaching
      of the subject FROM ANY HUMAN LIPS  I had  
      heard, excepting the communication between myself  
      and my husband.  I have said to myself, it is because
      God has presented it to me in vision that I see it so  
      clearly, and they [the opposing brethren] cannot see it  
      because they have not had it presented to them as I  
      have; and when another presented it, every fiber of my  
      heart said amen."   (Manuscript 5, 1889)

That testimony of Ellen White shows that the 1888 Message
of A. T. Jones and E. J. Waggoner shed new light on the
doctrine of justification by faith.  

Ellen White validates their 1888 Message as a message from
God.  It does not matter what Jones and Waggoner said or
did subsequent to 1888. 

    "It is quite possible that Elder Jones or Waggoner may  
      be overthrown by the temptations of the enemy; but if
      they should be, this would not prove that they had no
      message from God, or that the work that they had done
      was all a mistake.  But should this happen, how many  
      would take this position, and enter into a fatal delusion
      because they were not under the control of the Spirit of  
      God....I know that this is the very position many would  
      take if either of these men were to fall, ..."
                            Letter S-24, 1892.

That is a prophecy that is still being fulfilled today.
Antinomians in the Adventist Church  have found an excuse
for their rebellion against The Commandments of God.
Many Adventists (even in this news group) are opposing the
message of Jones and Waggoner because "it presented
justification through faith in the Surety;  it invited the      
people to receive THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF    
CHRIST,  WHICH IS  MADE MANIFEST IN    
OBEDIENCE TO ALL THE  COMMANDMENTS OF
GOD"  because it demands that a true believer must cease
from willful sin.

All who say Christians commit willful sin "occasionally"
oppose the teaching of Mrs. White.  Those who
intentionally disobey any of the Commandments of God
have not received "The Righteousness of Christ".  
Without an obedient faith that is manifested as "a doer of
the word" - they believe like the devils. That is their fatal
delusion!
