Here is a special, pointed warning for God’s people in these last days.

We have evidences in God’s word of the liability of the people of God being greatly deceived. There are many instances where what may seen to be a sincere zeal for the honor of God has its origin in leaving the soul unguarded for the enemy to tempt and impress the mind with a perverted sense of the real state of things. And we may expect just such things in these last days; for Satan is just as busy now as he was with the congregation of Israel. The cruelty and strength of prejudice are not understood. After the congregation had the evidences before their sight of the destruction of these leaders in rebellion [ Korah, Dathan, and Abiram ], the power of suspicion and distrust which had been let into their souls was not removed. They saw the earth open and the leaders in rebellion go down into the bowels of the earth. This fearful exhibition before them surely ought to have cured them, and led them to the deepest repentance for their abuse of Moses. p. 25, Para. 3, [24OT].
Here God gave all Israel an opportunity to see and to feel the sinfulness of their course which should have led them to repentance and confession. He gave the deceived ones overwhelming evidence that they were sinners, and that his servant Moses was right. p. 26, Para. 1, [24OT].

In the last days, of these now 167 years, we have a somewhat similar case before God’s people. This is more especially so since the advent of this site and a full uncovering of the evil deception that has for years been willingly perpetrated upon God’s people.

That Ellen was selected by God to be his prophet to his church in these last days is supported by an overwhelming weight of evidence. It is a fact. Then, two days after Ellen died, on a Friday, God executed a top editor, A. J. S. Bourdeau, in broad daylight, right in front of the whole General Conference office staff, and, A. G. Daniels, witnessing.

Immediately after the event a coverup was put in motion. The church at large was not made aware of the facts in the matter. I am quite sure there were rumors aplenty, but over time, after witnesses die, all that is left of the matter is the record of history, that was carefully selected to coverup the facts. God has now undone all their scheming.

We must now bring forth another passage which I think bears on this matter. It is about our attitude.

We are doing up work for the Judgment, and it is unsafe to work in our own wisdom and trust to our own judgment. With the spirit of self-confidence you now possess neither of you could be happy in Heaven; for there all, even the exalted angels, are subordinate. You have yet to learn subordination and submission. Both of you must be transformed by the grace of God. p. 99, Para. 2, [23OT].

I was impressed that I have lessons to learn about the line of separation from the world, and especially about the patriotic feelings about my home country, rights, &c., and God’s way. We know that he is no respecter of persons. The most humble and meek and poor and despised in the church is probably the very one God will use to test the experience of that church.

We have such a case in one Hannah More. p. 111, Para. 2, [24OT].

The special perils of the last days for God’s people will sweep us off the path and over the edge down into the dark and wicked world below if we fail to take warning from the truth revealed.

God Bless your Study

 

PS. I urge you to read the last two passages in context.
