Note: In the picture above you can see the All-seeing Eye spying on the believers. This is a pagan symbol adopted by the Adventists.
Ellen White (1827-1915): “How beautiful the earth was when it came from the Creator’s hand! God presented before the universe a world in which even his all-seeing eye could find no spot or stain” (RH, July, 21, 1904).
Ellen White (1827-1915): “God’s all-seeing eye notes the defects of all and the ruling passion of each, yet He bears with our mistakes and pities our weakness” (5T, 95, 96, 1889).
Ellen White (1827-1915): “They were continually under the eye that never slumbers nor sleeps, and yet they murmured against Moses” (ST, April 25, 1895).
Ellen White (1827-1915): “Go to Him with your soul all stained as it is. Like the psalmist, throw its chambers open to the all-seeing Eye, exclaiming: “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts…” (5T, p. 333, 1899).
Ellen White (1827-1915): “not only under able teachers, but also under the supervision of heavenly intelligences, knowing that the All-seeing, the Ever-sleepless Eye was upon him” (FE, p. 230, 1923).
Albert G. Mackey (1807-1881): “All-seeing eye. An important symbol of the Supreme Being, borrowed by the Freemasons from the nations of antiquity. Both the Hebrews and the Egyptians appear to have derived its use from that natural inclination of figurative minds to select an organ as the function which it is intended peculiarly to discharge. Thus the foot was often adopted as the symbol of swiftness, the arm of strength, and the hand of fidelity. On the same principle, the open eye was selected as the watchfulness, and the eye of God as the symbol in this sense is repeatedly to be found in the Hebrew writers. Thus the Psalmist says (Ps. XXXIV. 15): “the eyes of the lord are upon the righteous,…” which explains a subsequent passage (Ps CXXI. 4), in which it is said: “Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” (An Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, p. 47,  1914).
Albert G. Mackey (1807-1881): “On the same principle, the Egyptians represented Osiris, their chief deity, by the symbol of an open eye, and placed hieroglyphic of him in all their temples… The All-seeing Eye may then be considered as a symbol of God manifesting his omnipresence – his guardian and preserving character – to which Solomon alludes in the Book of Proverbs (XV. 13) when he says: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding (or, watch upon) the evil and the good. It is a symbol of the Omnipotent Deity” (Ibid., p. 48).
Thomas Smith Webb (1771-1881): “Although our tghoughts, words and actions may be hidden from the eyes of man, yet the All-Seeing Eye, whom the Sun, Moon and Stars obey, and under whose watchful care even Comets perform their stupendous revolutions, pervades theit inner most recesses of the human heart and will reward us according to our merits” (The Freemasons Monitor, 1797).
The stages in the development of the All-seeing eye in the Adventist Denomination
In the first stage (Illustration38) it was a simple tree with the Ten Commandments on two main branches. In the second stage (Illustration 39) the two parts of the Law were hung to the tree. But in neither of the trees was the spying, “All-seeing eye”. In the third stage more details were added, including the All-seeing Eye, depicting the panorama of salvation, and the painting was titled The Way of Life (Illustration No.40).
