Victor says that vision from 2AM to 4AM are from the devil. Somehow these hours are reserved only for him.
Please search the complete database of EGW writings, with all the manuscripts and letters and the pioneers writings as well! We could not find any inspired word stating that visions from 2AM to 4AM can be only from the devil. So Victor’s statement is not based on “it is written”. If it were so, wouldn’t our Saviour inform the apostolic church, or at least the adventist one? This would be a very valuable piece of information to detect false prophets.

PROOF FROM EGW WRITINGS
“Selected messages book 3”
I arose early Thursday morning, about two o’clock, and was writing busily upon the True Vine, when I felt a presence in my room, as I have many times before, and I lost all recollection of what I was about. I seemed to be in the presence of Jesus. He was communicating to me that in which I was to be instructed. Everything was so plain that I could not misunderstand. 3SM 36.1
“Selected Messages Book 1”
“When I went to Colorado I was so burdened for you that, in my weakness, I wrote many pages to be read at your camp meeting. Weak and trembling, I arose at three o’clock in the morning to write to you. God was speaking through clay. You might say that this communication was only a letter. Yes, it was a letter, but prompted by the Spirit of God, to bring before your minds things that had been shown me. In these letters which I write, in the testimonies I bear, I am presenting to you that which the Lord has presented to me. I do not write one article in the paper, expressing merely my own ideas. They are what God has opened before me in vision – the precious rays of light shining from the throne…. 1SM 27.2
“Testimonies on sexual behavior, adultery and divorce”
If I had my diary here, written during my last trip to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, I could read to you some things therein. In a vision of the night I was passing through the rooms of the institution, and saw the very scenes which did take place there in this familiarity, men with women and women with men. My soul was deeply troubled, and I arose and wrote out these things at one o’clock in the morning…. TSB 149.1
“Ellen G. White and her critics”
Three pages farther on in her narrative she refers to a night vision thus: “On the morning of Oct. 23, 1879, about two o’clock, the Spirit of the Lord rested upon me, and I beheld scenes in the coming judgment.” – Life Sketches of Ellen G. White, 241. EGWC 43.5
On the morning of October 23, 1879, about two o’ clock, the Spirit of the Lord rested upon me, and I beheld scenes in the coming judgment…. Chs 87.3
I have been aroused at one, two, or three o’clock in the morning with some point forcibly impressed upon my mind, as if spoken by the voice of God…. CM 128.1
I was shown … that I should devote myself to writing out the important matters for volume 4 [The Great Controversy]; – Letter 1, 1890.
“Selected Messages book two”
I could not sleep past two o’clock this morning. During the night season I was in council. I was pleading with some families to avail themselves of God’s appointed means, and get away from the cities to save their children. Some were loitering, making no determined efforts. 2SM 354.1
“Patriarchs and Prophets”
But a divine hand was about to open the prison gates. The king of Egypt had in one night two dreams, apparently pointing to the same event and seeming to foreshadow some great calamity. He could not determine their significance, yet they continued to trouble his mind. PP 219.3
“Prophets and kings”
In mercy God gave the king another dream, to warn him of his peril and of the snare that had been laid for his ruin. In a vision of the night, Nebuchadnezzar saw a great tree growing in the midst of the earth, its top towering to the heavens and its branches stretching to the ends of the earth. PK 515.2
“From eternity past”
While Jacob was wrestling with the Angel, another heavenly messenger was sent to Esau. In a dream, Esau beheld his brother for twenty years an exile; he witnessed his grief at finding his mother dead; he saw him encompassed by the hosts of God. The God of his father was with him. EP 129.4
Jacob in the night vision saw earth connected with heaven by a ladder reaching to the throne of God. He saw the angels of God, clothed with garments of heavenly brightness, passing down from heaven and up to heaven upon this shining ladder. Con 46.2
PROOF FROM THE PIONEERS’ WRITINGS:
“Campfire junior stories from the days of the S.D.A. pioneers”
THAT NIGHT A VISION WAS GIVEN TO SISTER WHITE AND AT FOUR O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING, SHE GOT UP and dressed and began to write what had been shown to her. The message was addressed to the mother of this family, for in the vision she had been shown the experience of some of the members of the family. CFJS 15.4
ESA NOCHE SE LE DIO UNA VISIÓN A LA HERMANA WHITE Y, A LAS CUATRO DE LA MAÑANA , SE LEVANTÓ, se vistió y comenzó a escribir lo que le habían enseñado. El mensaje estaba dirigido a la madre de esta familia, ya que en la visión se le había mostrado la experiencia de algunos de los miembros de la familia. CFJS 15.4
“The Fannie Bolton story”
On leaving my room I passed Sister White’s doorway, and the door being ajar, she saw me and called me into her room, saying, “I am in trouble, Brother Starr, and would like to talk with you.” FBS 110.5
I asked her what was the nature of her trouble, and she replied, “My writings, Fannie Bolton,” – just four words. I then asked her what the trouble was with Fannie Bolton and her writings, and tried to appear entirely innocent of any knowledge of any trouble, that I might know what she had on her mind. She said, “I want to tell you of A VISION I HAD ABOUT 2:00 O’CLOCK THIS MORNING. I was as wide awake as I am now, and there appeared a chariot of gold and horses of silver above me, and Jesus, in royal majesty, was seated in the chariot. I was greatly impressed with the glory of this vision, and asked my attending angel not to permit the vision to pass away until I had wakened up the entire family. FBS 110.6
The Lord has set before me matters which are of urgent importance for the present time, and which reach into the future. The words have been spoken in a charge to me, “Write in a book the things which thou hast seen and heard, and let it go to all the people; for the time is at hand when past history will be repeated.” I HAVE BEEN AROUSED AT ONE , TWO , OR THREE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING with some point forcibly impressed upon my mind, as if spoken by the voice of God…. CM 128.1
“Life Sketches of Ellen G. White”
He found her busily engaged in writing. She then told him that AN ANGEL OF GOD HAD WAKENED HER ABOUT THREE O’CLOCK, and had bidden her go to the ministers’ meeting and relate some things shown her at Salamanca. She said that she arose quickly, and had been writing for about two hours. LS 315.4
“Counsels for the church”
But God, who never slumbers nor sleeps, sent his angel messenger to Ellen White’s room AT THREE O’CLOCK THAT MORNING. She was aroused from her sleep and instructed that she must go into the workers’ meeting at half – past five, and there she must present what was shown to her at Salamanca. CCH 27.5A
As you can see, Ellen White’s visions are not limited to some interval, she has had visions at 1,2,3 etc. AM.
