45. My Vision on An Elijah | John The Baptist Call From the Wilderness


Oct. 5, 2012


http://omega77.tripod.com/visionelijahjohncall.htm



Joe 1:14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders [and] all the inhabitants of the land [into] the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,

Joe 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Zep 2:1   Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;

Zep 2:2   Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. 

Zep 3:18 I will gather [them that are] sorrowful for the solemn assembly, [who] are of thee, [to whom] the reproach of it [was] a burden.


This is the publication of my vision of October 5, 2012—an Elijah/John the Baptist call from the wilderness of the world to all who desire to be the 144,000 bride of Jesus Christ. The Lord instructed me to make this urgent call forthrightly. The bride is formed before the Loud Cry to the ten virgin guests, Christ’s Object Lessons p. 405, 406. Jesus takes the bride from her home to His home. I was shown that this event parallels Jeremiah 11:15. Jesus is now saying to His bride:

15 What hath my beloved [bride] to do in mine house [apostate SDA church], seeing she [the once chosen church] hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest. [celebrates].

God is now instructing His bride (the 144,000) to gather herself together before the Sunday Law decree occurs and the fierce anger of the Lord comes upon the once chosen church in an Ezekiel 9 slaughter of men, maidens and little children:

 

Zep 2:1   Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;

Zep 2:2   Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you. 

 

The Lord showed me that it is time to come into line with the teachings of His appointed messenger—Ron Beaulieu—for his teachings are pure truth and cannot be gainsaid. If these teachings are not embraced and obeyed, a terrible curse is coming upon the earth, and indeed the curse is already in progress because said teachings have been spurned.

 

Malachi Chapter 2

1 And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.

2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.

3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.

4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.

5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.

6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.

7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.

8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.

9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.

10 Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

11 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.

12 The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.

 

Judah, the daughter of Zion the bride, is the professing SDA church. She has dealt treacherously by committing in modern-day spiritual Israel (Spiritual Jerusalem), the abominable act of marrying herself (the church) to the daughter of a strange god of the brothel of Babylon, to become a sister to fallen Babylon. She, Judah/Jerusalem, the once SDA church, committed this act by conspired ecumenical liaison with Babylon’s associations, counsels/councils, girdings and confederacies; by adopting Rome’s central doctrine, the Trinity Doctrine, which sweeps away the entire Christian economy by annihilating the heavenly Sanctuary/Atonement at the Incarnation, and by compromises involving the nature of Jesus Christ made during the Evangelical Conferences with Dr.’s Martin and Barnhouse in the mid-1950’s and on. God’s Word says not to even pray for any who so conspire with His enemies, Jeremiah 11:9-15, and this directly implies unpardonable sin.

 

All who will not IMMEDIATELY leave the SDA brothel that is now a sister to fallen Babylon, upon discovering this omega of apostasy unpardonable sin committed by SDA church leaders, become corporately responsible for these unpardonable sins and will share the fate of those leaders who have sat in the gate deciding what the people will have and what they will not have by way of fodder for the sheep.

 

The requirement to leave said brothel is part of the refiner’s fire, because it is impossible for the wheat to mature amongst such thorns that choke the wheat and kill it before it matures; because God says it is impossible to unite with the fallen corrupt and remain/become pure.

 

Malachi Chapter 3

1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it .

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

 

Malachi Chapter 4

1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

 

I was shown that the curse is already circumventing the earth as fallout from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant in Japan. All who will avoid serious complications from that fallout must come into line with the bride of Jesus Christ, and obey all God’s commands, including Isaiah 8:9-12. Then, you need not fear this fear or any other fear of Satan’s Synagogue (this world) for God will protect you. Your only protection from the fast spreading pestilence is the hedge provided by obedience to God’s law, obeyed out of a motive of faith in and self-sacrificing love for Christ. I was shown that if this appeal is not heeded, God will permit more nuclear pestilences to pollute the atmosphere and it will get worse until His people will beg God on a moment by moment basis for relief from the pestilences that will flood the earth.

 

I was shown that God’s people are being as stiff-necked as Pharaoh and that they had better respond to this plea or else they are in for a very difficult experience that will be made increasingly intensified by continued resistance to this clarion call by His messenger to the church and the world. So I plead with you my brothers and sisters that you will not further provoke the Lord by your refusal to make a correct response to the unpardonable sin of His church, the professing Seventh-day Adventist church. If you could witness what I was shown in vision as the result of mocking, deriding and/or ignoring this warning, you would readily respond to God’s call to His bride.

 

What should you do in response to this warning? You should send/give this warning message to everyone you know and to all you come in contact with whether they will hear or forbear. I was shown that your duty is spelled out clearly in Ezekiel chapter 3, Isaiah 58 and Ezekiel 9:4. I was shown that your duty is unmistakably spelled out in Isaiah 37:31, 32 and that Isaiah wrote this more for professing Seventh-day Adventists than for the Jews of old. The choice is yours dear ones, but the choice to ignore this fair warning will be fraught with the most fearsome consequences ever to befall mankind.

 

I was shown that it is now time for the independent ministries to come into line with the teachings I have faithfully set forth on my Website, because very soon, such Websites will not be permitted and men will wonder the earth seeking such truth, but it will not be found—it will be too late for those who rejected it when they had the opportunity to know it. Judgment begins at the House of God, and their probation closes first.

 

The Lord made it plain to me that any amongst His professing people who are sincere, should be able to discern from the following statement that their once chosen church does not fulfill His conditions:

 

Here is the Spirit of Prophecy prophesied prolepsis statement regarding the final fate of that once Noble Ship. This is a major LYNCHPIN to my warning message. I have asked Blasphemous Heckler to explain it to me many times over a ten-year period and NOT ONCE has he done so. Can you explain it away? Are you a passenger on this once NOBLE SHIP, that is about to sink to rise no more? NOTICE WHO SEPARATES FROM WHOM:

 

"Jesus sends HIS PEOPLE a message of warning to prepare them for his coming. To the prophet John was made known the closing work in the great plan of man's redemption. He beheld an angel flying 'in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him for the hour of his Judgment is come and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters [Rev. 14:6, 7.].

The angel represented in prophecy as delivering this message,  symbolizes a class of faithful men, who, obedient to the promptings of God's Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message was not to be committed to the religious leaders of the people. They had failed to preserve their connection with God, and had REFUSED THE LIGHT FROM HEAVEN therefore they WERE NOT of the number described by the apostle Paul: 'But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day we are not of the night nor of darkness' [1 Thess. 5:4, 5]. 

The watchmen upon the walls of Zion should be the first to catch the tidings of the Saviour's advent, the first to lift their voices to proclaim him near, the first to warn the people to prepare for his coming. But they were at ease, dreaming of peace and safety, while the people were asleep in their sins. Jesus saw HIS CHURCH, like the barren fig-tree, covered with pretentious leaves, yet destitute of precious fruit. There was a boastful observance of the forms of religion, while the spirit of true humility, penitence and faith--which alone could render the service acceptable to God--was lacking. Instead of the graces of the Spirit, there were manifested pride, formalism, vainglory, selfishness, oppression. A BACKSLIDING CHURCH closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did not forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail but they departed from him, and SEPARATED THEMSELVES from his love. As they REFUSED TO COMPLY WITH THE CONDITIONS, his promises were NOT FULFILLED to them."  E.G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, Vol. 4, pp. 199-200 [The 1884 edition of The Great Controversy, 199, 200].

 

Note these important delineations in the above statement:

·       Ellen White is addressing HIS PEOPLE.

·       Ellen White is addressing those to whom was committed the EVERLASTING GOSPEL of Revelation 14.

·       Ellen White is defining the angel represented in prophecy AS DELIVERING THIS MESSAGE--NOT MEN OF BABYLON WHO FAILED TO ACCEPT THAT MESSAGE AS THE 1911 EDITION IMPLIES!

·       Ellen White is implying that the third angel's message is delivered NOT BY THE LEADERS OF THE SDA CHURCH, but by a class of faithful men because the leaders had failed to preserve their connection with God and had refused light from heaven!

·       Ellen White is addressing "watchmen upon the walls of Zion," NOT FALLEN BABYLON!

·       It is the MEMBERS of said church that SEPARATE FROM GOD, AND THAT IS WHY WE HAVE TO SEPARATE FROM THEM OR BE CORPORATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR APOSTASY.

·       And twice Ellen White mentions HIS CHURCH, NOT FALLEN BABYLON.

 

Ellen White is addressing a BACKSLIDING CHURCH whose leaders and laity alike who failed and rejected light from heaven and who refused to comply with the conditions so that God's promises are not fulfilled to them. God would rather His people should respond to appeals of love, but alas, those appeals have been mocked and spurned.

 

I was shown I should correct Laval Picard for his teaching on added probation. I was shown that his notion of added probation for Adventists per his interpretation of Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 218, is errant. Israel’s probation ended with the 490 years of Daniel 9, at the stoning of Stephen in A.D. 34. The gospel was then preached to Israel during an added time of probation from A.D. 34-66, at which time all true Christians fled to Pella to avoid the Ezekiel 9 destruction of Jerusalem.

 

Mr. Picard teaches that there is no call out message to Adventists. That is a woeful lie. I was shown that if Laval Picard were correct regarding his interpretation of Ellen White added probation statement, his teaching would make it so one could KNOWINGLY imbibe unpardonable sin apostasy and not be corporately responsible for it. That teaching contravenes God’s Word and the Spirit of Prophecy on corporate responsibility. If Laval is correct on added probation, then God would have to pardon Achan’s family who died with him because they knew of the apostasy and did not expose it and demand a proper response because of it.


The bride of Christ, His disciples (DA 179) was gathered out first (DA 232), and then at the close of Israel’s 490 years of probation in A.D. 34, the disciples began to gather out all true Christians from the apostate Temple organization from A.D. 34-66. The SDA church committed unpardonable sin when it adopted Rome’s Central Doctrine in 1980, and joined Babylon’s associations, counsels/councils, girdings and confederacies in violation of Isaiah 8:9-12. The added probation for Adventists has been for those who have responded to a call to come out of that apostasy from the time they learn/learned of it. We are responsible for truth when we hear it. Those who reject that call when they hear it, then become corporately responsible for the unpardonable sin apostasy. This accords with Isaiah 8:9-12, Jeremiah 11:9-15 and Ellen White’s first vision as recorded in Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

 

With what unwearied love did Christ minister to Israel during the period of added probation. Upon the cross He prayed, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:24. After His ascension the gospel was preached first at Jerusalem. There the Holy Spirit was poured out. There the first gospel church revealed the power of the risen Saviour. There Stephen—“his face as it had been the face of an angel” (Acts 6:15)—bore his testimony and laid down his life. All that heaven itself could give was bestowed. “What could have been done more to My vineyard,” Christ said, “that I have not done in it?” Isaiah 5:4. So His care and labor for you are not lessened, but increased. Still He says, “I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.” Isaiah 27:3. {COL 218.1}

 

 "While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them--when a voice said to me, 'Look again, and look a little higher.' At this I raised my eyes and saw a straight and narrow path cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were traveling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and they said the City was a great way off and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming....

By this time the 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious Star containing Jesus' new name." E.G. White, Word to the Little Flock, p. 14.

 

Ellen White said that the Midnight Cry of Matthew 25, gave power to the second angel’s message calling folk out of Babylon. To KNOWINGLY stray off that path by returning to liaison with Babylon in violation of Isaiah 8:9-12, and Matthew 25, constitutes unpardonable sin for it is then IMPOSSIBLE to get back on the pathway to heaven. When one is warned of the apostasy of the church in so committing this unpardonable sin, he/she is THEN KNOWING of the apostasy, and THEN becomes corporately responsible if he/she will not make a correct response to said apostasy by separating from any MEMBERSHIP connected with it. This is as serious as any warning could get.

 

     “The question may be asked, Are we to have no union whatever with the world? The word of the Lord is to be our guide. Any connection with infidels and unbelievers which would identify us with them is forbidden by the word. We are to come out from them and be separate. In no case are we to link ourselves with them in their plans or work. But we are not to live reclusive lives. We are to do worldlings all the good we possibly can. Christ has given us an example of this. When invited to eat with publicans and sinners, He did not refuse; for in no other way than by mingling with them could He reach this class. But on every occasion He gave them talents of words and influence. He opened up themes of conversation which brought things of eternal interest to their minds. And this Teacher enjoins us, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." On the temperance question take your position without wavering. Be as firm as a rock. Be not partakers of other men's sins. Acts of dishonesty in business deal, with believers or unbelievers, should be reproved; and if they give no evidence of reformation, come out from among them and be separate.” {FE 482.2, 483}

 

     “There is a large vineyard to be cultivated; but while Christians are to work among unbelievers, they are not to appear like worldlings. They are not to spend their time talking politics or acting as politicians; for by so doing, they give the enemy opportunity to come in and cause variance and discord. Those in the ministry who desire to stand as politicians should have their credentials taken from them; for this work God has not given to high or low among His people. God calls upon all who minister in doctrine to give the trumpet a certain sound. All who have received Christ, ministers and lay members, are to arise and shine; for great peril is right upon us. Satan is stirring the powers of earth. Everything in the world is in confusion. God calls upon His people to hold aloft the banner bearing the message of the third angel. We are not to go to Christ through any human being, but through Christ we are to understand the work He has given us to do for others.” {FE 483.1}

 

     “God calls to His people, saying, "Come out from among them, and be ye separate." He asks that the love which He has shown for them may be reciprocated and revealed by willing obedience to His commandments. His children are to separate themselves from politics, from any alliance with unbelievers. They are not to link their interests with the interests of the world. "Give proof of your allegiance to Me" He says, "by standing as My chosen heritage, as a people zealous of good works." Do not take part in political strife. Separate from the world, and refrain from bringing into the church or school ideas that will lead to contention or disorder. Dissension is the moral poison taken into the system by human beings who are selfish. God wants His servants to have clear perceptions, true and noble dignity, that their influence may demonstrate the power of truth. The Christian life is not to be a haphazard, emotional life. True Christian influence, exerted for the accomplishment of the work God has appointed, is a precious agency, and it must not be united with politics, or bound up in a confederacy with unbelievers. God is to be the center of attraction. Every mind that is worked by the Holy Spirit will be satisfied with Him.” {FE 483.2, 484}

 

"The Sins of Babylon--I saw that since the second angel proclaimed the fall of the churches, they have been growing more and more corrupt. They bear the name of being Christ's followers; YET IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DISTINGUISH THEM FROM THE WORLD.  Ministers take their texts from the Word of God, but preach smooth things. To this the natural heart feels no objection. It is only the spirit and power of the truth and the salvation of Christ that are hateful to the carnal heart. There is nothing in the popular ministry that stirs the wrath of Satan, makes the sinner tremble, or applies to the heart and conscience the fearful realities of a judgment soon to come. Wicked men are generally pleased with a form of piety without true godliness, and they will aid and support such a religion.


Said the angel, 'Nothing less than the whole armor of righteousness can enable man to overcome the powers of darkness and retain the victory over them. Satan has taken full possession of the churches AS A BODY. The sayings and doings of men are dwelt upon instead of the plain, cutting truths of the Word of God. The spirit and friendship of the world are at enmity with God. When the truth in its simplicity and strength, as it is in Jesus, is brought to bear against the spirit of the world, it at once awakens the spirit of persecution. Very many who profess to be Christians have not known God. The natural heart has not been changed, and the carnal mind remains at enmity with God. They are Satan's faithful servants, notwithstanding they have assumed another name.'


I saw that since Jesus left the holy place of the heavenly sanctuary and entered within the second veil, the churches have been filling up with every unclean and hateful bird. I saw great iniquity and vileness in the churches; yet their members profess to be Christians. Their profession, their prayers, and their exhortations are an abomination in the sight of God. Said the angel, 'God will not smell in their assemblies. Selfishness, fraud, and deceit are practiced by them without the reprovings of conscience.  And over all these evil traits they throw the cloak of religion.' I was shown the pride of the nominal churches. God is not in their thoughts; their carnal minds dwell upon themselves; they decorate their poor mortal bodies, and then look upon themselves with satisfaction and pleasure. Jesus and the angels look upon them in anger. Said the angel, 'Their sins and pride have reached unto heaven. Their portion is prepared. Justice and judgment have slumbered long, but will soon awake. Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.' The fearful threatenings of the third angel are to be realized, and all the wicked are to drink of the wrath of God. An innumerable host of evil angels are spreading over the whole land and crowding the churches. These agents of Satan look upon the religious bodies with exultation, for the cloak of religion covers the greatest crime and iniquity."  E.G. White, Early Writings, pp. 273-275.

 

     “It is no argument against the truth that there are few who are willing to accept it. Few accepted the world's Redeemer. Though the multitude flocked around him, eager to receive temporal blessings, yet he sadly declared: "Ye will not come to me that ye might have life." Men are now no more favorable to practical godliness; they are just as intently seeking earthly good, to the neglect of eternal riches. And reformers of the present day will meet with the same discouragements as did their Master. {ST, January 28, 1886 par. 3}

 

We are responsible for truth WHEN WE HEAR OR READ IT. God commands us to CHOOSE YE THIS DAY WHOM YE WILL SERVE. Sincere hearers of the Word do not wait—they are convinced of duty and they choose truth when they learn it.

 

The great obstacle both to the acceptance and to the promulgation of truth is the fact that it involves inconvenience and reproach. This is the only argument against the truth which its advocates have never been able to refute. But this does not deter the true followers of Christ. These do not wait for truth to become popular. Being convinced of their duty, they deliberately accept the cross, with the apostle Paul counting that ‘our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;’ with one of old, ‘esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt.’ 2 Corinthians 4:17; Hebrews 11:26.


Whatever may be their profession, it is only those who are world servers at heart that act from policy rather than principle in religious things. We should choose the right because it is right, and leave consequences with God. To men of principle, faith, and daring, the world is indebted for its great reforms. By such men the work of reform for this time must be carried forward.

Thus saith the Lord: ‘Hearken unto Me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings. For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My righteousness shall be forever, and My salvation from generation to generation.’ Isaiah 51:7-8.”—Great Controversy, 458-460

 

When Jesus called His bride, the disciples (DA 179), they did not say: “Some more convenient time Lord.” They immediately followed Him. They had been prepared by John the Baptist to receive the bridegroom. In the same manner, the bride of Jesus Christ will respond to the Elijah message when she hears the invitation.

 

"If those who have been in the church for weeks and months have not learned the straightness of the way, and what it is to be Christians, and can not hear all the straight truths of the word of God, it were better that they were cut off from Israel.  It is too late in the day to feed with milk.  If souls, a month or two old in the truth, who are about to enter the time of trouble such as never was, can not hear all the straight truth, or endure the strong meat of the straightness of the way, how will they stand in the day of battle? Truths that we have been years learning must be learned in a few months by those who now embrace the Third Angel's Message.... There is no need of milk after souls are convinced of the truth. As soon as the conviction of truth is yielded to and the heart willing, the truth should have its effect, the truth will work like leaven, and purify and purge away the passions of the natural heart. It is a disgrace for those who have been in the truth for years to talk of feeding souls who have been months in the truth, upon milk. It shows they know little of the leadings of the Spirit of the Lord, and realize not the time we are living in. Those who embrace the truth now will have to step fast. There will have to be a breaking up of heart before the Lord, a rending of heart, and not the garment."  E.G. White, Manuscript Releases, vol 1, p 33-34 (Manuscript 1, February 12, 1854).
