I just love the mystery hidden in these words! What hath God wrought! This text is a perfect example of the hidden treasure teaching us more truth, truth in depth, truth in golden harmony with all past truth revealed.

   And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain. 2 Samuel 23:4

I think this is all about the 144,000. What else is left? nothing. We have already shown that “light” is God’s word. Psalms 119:105. So this means that the 144,000 shall be as the word of God in the morning.

The next phrase “when the sun riseth” I take to mean, is a direct reference to the vison God gave to his church November 18, 1848, during which Ellen spoke these words, as recorded by Joseph Bates.

 That truth [the Sabbath] arises and is on the increase, stronger, and stronger. It’s the seal! It’s coming up! It arises, commencing from the rising of the sun. Like the sun, first cold, grows warmer and sends it’s rays. When that truth arose there was but little light in it, but it has been increasing. O the power of these rays. It grows in strength, the greatest weight and light is on that truth, for it lasts forever when the Bible is not needed. It arose there in the east, it began with a small light, but it’s beams are healing. O how mighty is that truth; it’s the highest after they enter the goodly land, but it will increase till they are made immortal. It commenced from the rising of the sun, keeps on the course like the sun, but it never sets. A Sealing Message, page 24-26.

Grass is defined as people, and it saying “as” must mean that the tender 144,000 are springing out of the false church, the earth.

Just now found this.

 Truth shall spring out of the earth;  Psalms 85:11

Excellent confirmation that we are on the right path.

Obadiah 1:18 tells us that the loud cry will start in the house, meaning the church, of Esau, the one who rejected his birthright. That would be the SDA church who has refused to walk in the light of the midnight cry, or keep the way of present truth as laid out by the true pioneers of this faith.

 

 

Then we are told that all this is “by— clear shining after rain.”

 Who is she that looketh

      forth as the morning,
         fair as the moon,

      clear as the sun, and
 terrible as an army with banners?  Song of Solomon 6:10

And here is what shine means.

Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.  Psalms 119:135

Now to paraphrase the whole verse.

 The 144,000 are as God’s pure word; during the sounding of the third angel’s message, there will be no obstruction of the message as they give it; they will spring forth out of the false church by teaching the Sabbath rest truth, freely to all, after the Holy Ghost is poured out, known as the loud cry.

Amazing truth God is opening to his people, the hidden treasure, comes pouring out as rivers of oil from the Rock!, that shine bright as a burning fire for those who have striven to enter the strait gate, to walk in the narrow way, in the light of the midnight cry, all the way to the City.

God Bless your learning
