Continuing with the fifth and final part from our new book, “Beginning & End.” It is a chronological study of Present Truth, of the Advent message, from the beginning to the end, hence the name.

The Lord has shown me that some of his children would fear when they see the price of food rising, and they would buy food and lay it by for the time of trouble. Then in a time of need, I saw them go to their food and look at it, and it had bred worms, and was full of living creatures, and not fit for use. About one week since, the Lord showed me in vision, that houses and lands would be of no use in the time of trouble, and in that time they could not be disposed of. I saw it was the will of God that the saints should cut loose from every encumbrance–dispose of their houses and lands before the time of trouble comes, and make a covenant with God by sacrifice. I saw they would sell if they laid their property on the altar and earnestly inquired for duty. Then God will teach them when to dispose of these things. Then they will be free in the time of trouble, and have no clogs to weigh them down.

Notice that it is God who you are to get your instructions from, in this matter. When instructed in this way, we are not to take it lightly.

    I saw if they held on to their property, and did not inquire duty of the Lord, he would not make duty known, and they would be permitted to keep their property, and then in the time of trouble their property would come up before them like a mountain to crush them. Then they tried to get rid of it, but could not. I heard them mourn like this,– the cause was languishing–God’s people were suffering for truth, and we made no effort to supply the lack, and now our property is useless. Oh! that we had let it go, and laid up treasure in heaven. I saw a sacrifice did not increase, but decrease, and was consumed.

Some people are looking for a good return on their investment. We are warned against doing this at this time. Just consider Heaven and eternal life good enough.

I also saw that God had not required all of his people to dispose of their property at the same time, but in a time of need he would teach them, if they desired to be taught, when to sell and how much to sell. I saw that some had been required to dispose of their property in past time to sustain the advent cause, while he permitted others to keep theirs until a time of need. Then as the cause needs it, their duty is to sell.
           Now is the time to lay up treasure in heaven, and to set our hearts in order, ready for the time of trouble. Those only who have clean hands and a pure heart will stand that trying time. Now is the time for the law of God to be in our minds (foreheads), and written in our hearts. The Lord has shown me the danger of letting our minds be filled with worldly thoughts and cares.

Again this idea of staying in control of our thoughts, keeping our mind under our own control, is presented, to remind us of the dangers of allowing our minds to drift. This is Satan’s object; for in so doing there is no room for the seal of God. In this work, this can be found on page #.

I saw that some minds were led away from present truth and a love of the holy Bible, by reading other exciting books; and others were filled with perplexity and care for what they shall eat, drink and wear. I saw some, looking too far off for the coming of the Lord. Time has continued on a few years longer than they expected, therefore they think it may continue a few years more, and in this way their minds are being led from present truth, out after the world. In these things I saw great danger; for if the mind is filled with other things, present truth is shut out, and there is no place in our foreheads for the seal of the living God. This seal is the Sabbath.

The love of the world and the things of the world, the pre-occupation with the world, these are the bane of the Christian, and Satan knows it. But we hope. There is an interesting passage in No. 12, page 40; “Something must arise to lessen the hold of God’s people upon the world.”

  I saw that the time for Jesus to be in the most holy place was nearly finished, and that time can last but a very little longer; and what leisure time we have should be spent in searching the Bible, which is to judge us in the last day.
           My Dear Brethren and Sisters:–Let the commandments of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ be in your minds continually, and let them crowd worldly thoughts and cares from the mind. When you lie down, and when you rise up, let them be your meditation. Live, and act wholly in reference to the coming of the Son of Man.
           The sealing time is very short, and soon will be over. Now is the time to make our calling and election sure, while the four angels are holding the four winds.

   The sealing time has lasted 167 years,… so far,… but it too, is called, a “very short” time. When viewed from the big picture perspective, we are in the “closing work for the church,” No. 23, page 22, and it is short; just seems long to us.

           If any among us are sick, let us not dishonor God by applying to earthly physicians, but apply to the God of Israel. If we follow his directions (James 5:14, 15) the sick will be healed. God’s promise cannot fail. Have faith in God, and trust wholly in him, that when Christ who is our life shall appear we may appear with him in glory. E.G. White. Topsham, Jan. 31, 1849.

   There were many times when the pioneers did this, and many were healed. One day I want to add up the count of times people were healed in the early days of this faith. It is faith building to read these stories and be charmed by the truth.

   Now we are into Medical Missionary Evangelism, and it’s only the beginning of the 1849. Check  this out, we are not even supposed to call the doctor at all! We are supposed to get our Bibles and call a prayer meeting when someone gets sick. Interesting faith, wouldn’t you say?

God Bless your Study

This morning I am able to access this site.

The denial of access was limited to this site only and was geographically specific.

That took some doing. However, in the process, something got messed up and had to be fixed.

There is much we do not know. What we do know is that there is no privacy on the net. Those who think there is, or it can be created using various tools, are dreamers. The day will come when the dreamers will be sitting in court looking the list of every item they ever put out on the net.

Think like this, what would you do if you had truly un-limited resources?

The important of thinking like that is because “they” do, have un-limited resources.

They create money with a computer entry. And then spend it just like you do with the money you had to actually work for, imagine that!

That is a big part of why this house of cards is in collapse.

To move ahead, posts will continue to be added until God allows this site to be taken.

The soon coming hate speech laws may be focused toward these goals. Let them eat cake.

Today is their day.

Tomorrow, is forever. Eternity stretches out before our mind’s eye to the horizon of your farthermost thoughts and beyond. What human can comprehend the things that God hath prepared for those who will walk by faith?

This is the challenge, to believe!

Just doing some thinking here…. out loud, as it were.

My current understanding of our current position. No references given. Search the blog for info.

All these items are now concurrent.

1.) Since October 22, 1844, we are in The Great Day of Atonement.

2.) Since October 22, 1844, we are now in the third watch. Apparently the first watch was the watch for the first time set for the second coming of Christ. Then, apparently, the second watch was the second time set for the second coming of Christ, October 22, 1844. This makes us in the third watch, which is an indeterminate time.

3.) We now walk by faith on the path to the city, in the light of the Midnight Cry.

4.) The Shaking has been on-going since, at least, January 26, 1850

5.) We are in the time of the six men with slaughter weapons slaying and one with a writers inkhorn placing a mark or seal on God’s people.

6.) The message to the church of the Laodiceans applies to us now.

7.) We are in the patient, waiting, watching time.

8.) The third woe started October 22, 1844 with the sounding of the trumpet of the seventh angel.

We wait for that is yet to come….

Mostly in order.

1.) Satan raises an excitement in the religious bodies.

2.) USA exercises all the power of the first beast before him.

3.) Sunday law is made a test.

4.) The Loud Cry is God’s response to the Sunday law.

5.) The world raises a persecution against God’s people.

6.) Close of probation for all mankind and the closing ceremony for the temple in Heaven. Some begin to run to and fro to the north and to the east searching for the word of God.

7.) Plagues fall on the wicked.

8.) Voice of God sounds to resurrect those who have died in the faith of the third angel’s message.

9.) Voice of God sounds making a covenant with those who have kept his law and proclaiming the day and hour of Christ’s second coming.

10.) Second coming of Christ.

11.) God people truly live happily ever after, ever after, ever after!

Some of you may not be much moved by what I said about having your own web site.

Oldspapers and the Crisis of the Establishment

be convinced, it’s a trend that is picking up steam, and just MAY be a huge factor in the speed of the loud cry.

Think about it.
