Amid the confusing cries, "Lo, here is the Messiah! Lo, there
is the Messiah!" will be borne a SPECIAL TESTIMONY, a SPECIAL MESSAGE of
TRUTH APPROPRIATE for THIS TIME, which MESSAGE is to be received,
believed, and acted upon. It is the TRUTH, not fanciful ideas, that is efficacious.
The ETERNAL TRUTH of the WORD will stand forth free from all seductive
errors and spiritualistic interpretations, free from all fancifully drawn, alluring
pictures. Falsehoods will be urged upon the attention of Elohim's people, but the TRUTH
is to stand clothed in its BEAUTIFUL, PURE GARMENTS. The WORD, PRECIOUS in ITS
HOLY, UPLIFTING INFLUENCE, is not to be degraded to a level with common, ordinary
matters. It is always to remain uncontaminated by the fallacies by which Satan seeks to
deceive, if possible, the very elect. The proclamation of the GOSPEL is the only
means in which Elohim can employ human beings as His instrumentalities for the salvation
of souls. As men, women, and children proclaim the gospel, Y'hovah will OPEN THE EYES
OF THE BLIND to see His STATUTES, and will write upon the hearts of the TRULY
PENITENT His LAW. The animating Spirit of Elohim, working through human
agencies, leads the believers to be of one mind, one soul, unitedly loving Elohim and
keeping His COMMANDMENTS--PREPARING HERE BELOW FOR TRANSLATION. ...We must not wait
for the LATTER RAIN. It is coming upon all who will recognize and appropriate the DEW
and SHOWERS of GRACE that FALL UPON US. When we GATHER UP the FRAGMENTS
of LIGHT, when WE APPRECIATE the SURE MERCIES of Y'hovah who
loves to have us trust Him, THEN EVERY PROMISE WILL BE FULFILLED. The WHOLE
EARTH is to be FILLED with THE GLORY of Elohim. ...The MESSAGE in
regard to the fall of Babylon must be given. Elohim's people are to understand in regard
to the ANGEL who is to LIGHTEN the whole world with his GLORY, while
he CRIES MIGHTILY, with a LOUD VOICE, "Babylon the great is fallen, is
fallen." The solemn events which are now taking place belong to a SERIES OF EVENTS
in the CHAIN of history, THE FIRST LINK of which IS CONNECTED with EDEN.
Let the people of Elohim PREPARE for what is coming upon the earth. Extravagance in
the use of means, selfishness, heresies, have taken the world captive. For centuries
satanic agencies have been at work. Will they now give up without a struggle.
SDA Bible Commentary Vol. 7 P. 984, 985
It is the LATTER RAIN; the REFRESHING from the
presence of Y'hovah: the LOUD CRY of the THIRD ANGEL.
Spiritual Gifts Vol. 1 p. 186
THIS IS THE REFRESHING:
We are to throw aside our narrow, selfish plans, remembering that we
have a work of the largest magnitude and highest importance. In doing this work we are
sounding the first, second, and third angels' messages, and are thus being prepared for
the coming of THAT OTHER ANGEL FROM HEAVEN WHO IS TO LIGHTEN THE EARTH WITH HIS GLORY.
Testimonies Vol. 6, p. 406
That there was to be SPECIAL LIGHT
for Elohim's people as they neared the closing scenes of this earth's history. ANOTHER
ANGEL was to come from Heaven with a MESSAGE, and THE WHOLE EARTH WAS TO BE
LIGHTENED WITH HIS GLORY. It would be impossible for us to state just how this ADDITIONAL LIGHT would come. It might come in a VERY
UNEXPECTED MANNER, in a way that WOULD NOT AGREE WITH the ideas that many have
conceived. It is not at all unlikely, or contrary to the ways and works of Elohim, to send
LIGHT to His people in UNEXPECTED WAYS.
Man. Rel. Vol. 13, page 334, pr. 02
There will be those among us who will always want to control the
work of Elohim, to dictate even what movements shall be made WHEN THE WORK GOES FORWARD
UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE ANGEL WHO JOINS THE THIRD ANGEL IN THE MESSAGE TO BE GIVEN TO
THE WORLD. Elohim will use ways and means by which it will be seen that He is taking
the reins in His own Hands. The workers will be surprised by the SIMPLE MEANS that
He will use to bring about and PERFECT His work of righteousness.
Testimonies to Ministers p. 300
When the MIGHTY ANGEL will come down from heaven, and UNITE
WITH THE THIRD ANGEL IN CLOSING UP THE WORK FOR THIS WORLD; my message is that OUR
ONLY SAFETY IS IN BEING READY for the HEAVENLY REFRESHING, having our LAMPS
TRIMMED AND BURNING."
