    Subtle way of establishing herself as uniquely "chosen" wasn't it?

    E.G. White was a failed novelist who found her niche in cult literature.

    The Millerites were certainly a unique bunch. That flower of deceit has blossomed into several false denominations and cults including the SDA's, the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society and David Koresh's Branch Davidians. This is the importance of prideless, sincere faith and repentance.

    Ellen White is merely a speck when it comes to deception from Satan.

    The Lord could make an exception if the woman was a messenger of the Lord like Ellen White was.

    Acts 2:17 quoting Joel 2 says it this way.

    "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:"

    So there you have it - under a time of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit such as the time of Ellen White, then both men and women will prophesy.
