From the Daystar Article, Ellen Harmon's first Vision: "And on it sat the Son of Man, on His Head were crowns, His Hair was white and curly and lay on His Shoulders. His Feet had the appearance of fire, in His Right Hand was a sharp sickle, in His Left a silver trumpet."
For the sake of gaining worldly riches honor or power, they place the maxims, traditions, and requirements of men above the requirements of Elohim. From them the treasures of His Word are hidden. Messiah's Object Lessons p. 106

STRICT INTEGRITY should be cherished by every student. Every mind should turn with reverent attention to the REVEALED WORD OF ELOHIM. LIGHT AND GRACE WILL BE GIVEN to those who thus OBEY ELOHIM. They will behold WONDROUS THINGS OUT OF HIS LAW. GREAT TRUTHS that have lain unheeded and unseen since the day of Pentecost, are to SHINE from ELOHIM'S WORD in their NATIVE PURITY. To those who TRULY LOVE ELOHIM the Holy Spirit will reveal TRUTHS that have faded from the mind, and will also reveal TRUTHS THAT ARE ENTIRELY NEW. Those who eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Elohim will bring from the books of Daniel and Revelation truth that is inspired by the Holy Spirit. They will start into action forces that cannot be repressed. The lips of children will be opened to proclaim the MYSTERIES THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN from the minds of men. Y'hovah has chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise, and the weak things of the world to confound the mighty. Fundamentals of Yahdian Education P. 473
