The Loud Cry Via the Church Triumphant

By John Thiel, Audio: The Loud Cry Via the Church Triumphant

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

This term, the loud cry, has been coined by the pioneers of the Seventh Day Adventist faith and also the Spirit of Prophecy. It’s a term that has been gained from various different quotes of the bible and also the Spirit of Prophecy.

I saw the latter rain was coming as [suddenly as] the midnight cry, and with ten times the power. {SpM 4.3}

The midnight cry and the latter rain is synchronised in the above statement. The latter rain is expressed here.

I asked what had made this great change. An angel answered, “It is the latter rain, the refreshing from the presence of the Lord, the loud cry of the third angel”. {EW 271.2}

This quote synchronises the latter rain as the loud cry. All are synchronised in the latter rain, the midnight cry, and the loud cry of the third angel. When you read Revelation 14:9 it says the third angel comes with loud voice.

Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Revelation 18 is a strong voice.

Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

In any of these statements it’s not used the words a loud cry. It’s a mighty cry, a strong voice.

Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Here you have crying aloud. With a combination of all those quotes from the bible and the Spirit of Prophecy. We see that the pioneers identified the loud cry.

I saw angels hurrying to and fro in heaven, descending to the earth, and again ascending to heaven, preparing for the fulfilment of some important event. Then I saw another mighty angel commissioned to descend to the earth, to unite his voice with the third angel, and give power and force to his message. The work of this angel comes in at the right time to join in the last great work of the third angel’s message as it swells to a loud cry. And the people of God are thus prepared to stand in the hour of temptation, which they are soon to meet. I saw a great light resting upon them, and they united to fearlessly proclaim the third angel’s message. {EW 277.1}

The loud cry is a terminology that comes into existence by combining many other expressions as we have identified. This study we want to consider this loud cry;

•           The circumstances of its rising and swelling.

•           The agency on earth that gives this loud cry.

•           The actual nature of that loud cry.

What is it in actual representation of fact? In our past considerations of the church triumphant, we have handled to some degree the first and second points which I wish to readdress, the circumstances of its swelling and the agency on earth that gives it. Under the influence of the beast and the image of the beast, we read in Revelation 13 about the beast and what effect it has on this planet. How that the whole world under the influence of the beast and its image, sinks into corruption.

Revelation 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

How did that happen?

Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Here you have the beast and another beast which then causes the whole world to worship the first beast. The whole world is then brought under this influence.

Revelation 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Remember how it reads, it will CAUSE that to happen. Many people misunderstand this to say that the beast and the image of the beast will kill them. It says they will cause them to be killed.

Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

It is under the direct influence of the beast, the first and the second beast leading to the image of the beast that will cause the whole world to deal with those who will not be affected by the cause to bring them to worship the beast and its image and receive its mark.  Indeed under this kind of cause to effect influence that is inflicted on the society of this planet by these two powers. There is a need to overcome this causative effect. Jesus speaks very warmly to us.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Jesus said in the world you shall have tribulation because the world is going to submerse itself in practises that will cause you to suffer, be tempted and moulded to an object. But be of good cheer, I have overcome this. Indeed there is in the time of the last days those who have overcome as Jesus overcame.

Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, [and] over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous [are] thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true [are] thy ways, thou King of saints.

Here are a people that stand on the sea of glass with the lamb.

Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith. 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

If we believe in Jesus the son of God, then we like him will overcome the world and have the faith of Jesus.

There is such a thing as being partaker of the divine nature. We shall all be tempted in a variety of ways, but when we are tempted we need to remember that a provision has been made whereby we may overcome. … Those who truly believe in Christ are made partakers of the divine nature and have power that they can appropriate under every temptation. They will not fall under temptation and be left to defeat. In time of trial they will claim the promises and by these escape the corruptions that are in the world through lust. Christ Triumphant page 197. Manuscript 9A

Who is he that overcometh the world? He that believes Jesus is the son of God. We will overcome the corruptions that are in the world through lust. If you examine very carefully the word cause, the beast and his image, what will they cause? They will work on the lusts of the people into corrupt practises. Everyone has lusts. Unless we overcome the lusts of our flesh, we will be brought under the influence of these beasts as we know who they are. The whole world will be brought to corruption. What are Gods faithful people overcoming? The lusts that lead to corruption that are being used and caused to corruption. What are the over comers doing?

I saw that none could share the “refreshing” unless they obtain the victory over every besetment, over pride, selfishness, love of the world, and over every wrong word and action. {EW 71.2}

That’s what they will be doing. To overcome the beast, its image and the mark of the beast, we need to conquer the sources of the corruption they are causing. What is that? Our besetment, our pride, selfishness, the love of the things in this world, wrong words and wrong actions. If we are going to conquer and overcome the beast and his image, we are going to overcome the world through our Lord Jesus Christ obtaining the victory over our besetment over every wrong word and action. That is what is behind it. Many people think when the Sunday law comes they are going to resist the attacks of the Protestants and Catholics, they are deluded as they don’t know what the real issues are. The real issues are my own, our own, our natural condition. If we are going to be the church triumphant to proclaim the loud cry, we will never be amongst that company unless we are engaged in this.

Revelation 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

These people that are going to be standing on the sea of glass, what have they done? They have conquered everything that has pertained to their old life. Every wrong word and action they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. Sr White asks whether we are really preparing for this terrible onslaught to gain the victory whether the seal or the mark of the beast is going to be applied.

What are you doing, brethren, in the great work of preparation? Those who are uniting with the world are receiving the worldly mould and preparing for the mark of the beast. Those who are distrustful of self, who are humbling themselves before God and purifying their souls by obeying the truth these are receiving the heavenly mould and preparing for the seal of God in their foreheads. When the decree goes forth and the stamp is impressed, their character will remain pure and spotless for eternity. {5T 216.1}

Can you see the current of application here? It is what I do within myself about my pride, my selfishness my characteristics of enjoyment and pleasures. It is what I do with them that are going to have the influence as to whether I’m going to be marked by the beast or sealed by the seal of God. How I am going to be moulded because he will CAUSE the world. A lot of people don’t read that very carefully and miss the real issues. Its cause to effect. As the people of God become the church triumphant, they ultimately as they engage in being moulded for the heavenly kingdom, they will become the agency that will pronounce the loud cry.

I was shown that if God’s people make no efforts on their part, but wait for the refreshing to come upon them and remove their wrongs and correct their errors; if they depend upon that to cleanse them from filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and fit them to engage in the loud cry of the third angel, they will be found wanting. The refreshing or power of God comes only on those who have prepared themselves for it by doing the work which God bids them, namely, cleansing themselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. {1T 619.1}

To receive the refreshing, to receive the later rain, the individuals who receive it will have pursued the part of purification that we have been reading before this. By them doing it they will then receive the latter rain which Sr White equated with the loud cry. Because the latter rain is indeed the power of God in the loud cry. It will only be upon the church triumphant.

My attention was then turned to the company I had seen, who were mightily shaken. I was shown those whom I had before seen weeping and praying with agony of spirit. The company of guardian angels around them had been doubled, and they were clothed with an armour from their head to their feet. They moved in exact order, firmly, like a company of soldiers.{1T 181.3}

They had obtained the victory, and it called forth from them the deepest gratitude, and holy, sacred joy. {1T 181.3}

They have been cleansed from every defilement so they could stand glorious as the church triumphant. Here are the agents that could proclaim the loud cry, who have been purged from every sin, these people are going to be the agency and instruments of producing the loud cry. This is the agency, this people. If they have produced through their association and the work of Jesus Christ in their life, have been receivers in the divine nature and have thereby conquered the world, what is the loud cry? What is the nature of the loud cry? Where shall we look for an object lesson of what the loud cry actually is?

The Three Worthies and the Crowd and Worshipping Nebuchadnezzars Image

The king declared to the three Hebrew youth, if “ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?” The youth said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. . . .” (Dan. 3:15-19). . . . Those faithful youth were cast into the fire, but God manifested His power for the deliverance of His servants. One like unto the Son of God walked with them in the midst of the flame, and when they were brought forth, not even the smell of fire had passed on them. . . . {HP 149.3}

Thus these youth, imbued with the Holy Spirit, declared to the whole nation their faith, that He whom they worshiped was the only true and living God. This demonstration of their own faith was the most eloquent presentation of their principles. In order to impress idolaters with the power and greatness of the living God, His servants must reveal their own reverence for God. They must make it manifest that He is the only object of their honor and worship, and that no consideration, not even the preservation of life itself, can induce them to make the least concession to idolatry. These lessons have a direct and vital bearing upon our experience in these last days. {HP 149.4}

Did you actually observe a loud cry here? How fitting a lesson. The image of the beast. Here was an image. The whole world is caused to worship that image thereon the plane of Dura. The whole world is caused and induced to worship the image of the beast. If they should not worship the image, they would be killed. What transpires? They all bow down and who stands out? With a loud cry? With the awakening of what? These three are not bowing down? There’s a fire, they are going to be destroyed. How did these three men impact the loud cry? We are not going to worship your idol. They grew up into men as youth within the Babylon of their time. We have grown up within the Babylon of our time. What have they done? They have overcome the idolatry through their experience. Health reform, idolatry? The appetite is an idol. They have conquered their idol. God’s people in the last days who dwell in Babylon have conquered like these men.  These inconspicuous young men, these people who were just a few as they were among all the other Israelites and Jews, what happened to all the others? They were a small number, three of them, where were the others?

Now we seem to be unnoticed, but this will not always be. Movements are at work to bring us to the front, and if our theories of truth can be picked to pieces by historians or the world’s greatest men, it will be done. {Ev 69.1}

Something was a foot with these three young men. They were little known by the rest of the world but look at them. Three inconspicuous young men became painfully conspicuous. These are the lessons we are to learn for the last days. How does the church triumphant become conspicuous? Because of movements pushing them to the front? What will happen to those who have not overcome their idols beforehand? They will be moulded. When the final test comes they will be moulded. Just like the Israelites did on that plain. There were only three that stood faithful. Daniel was somewhere else, had he been there it would have been four. How is it that the church triumphant becomes conspicuous? Because of the darkness, the gross darkness. That is what makes Gods people conspicuous. We read it, shine, arise, thy light is come. What is that? Gross darkness shall cover the earth. But the Lord shall arise upon thee and his glory shall be seen upon thee. The kings shall come to the brightness of the arising of these three men. They were brought into the court area of the king. The kings and the gentiles will be brought to see the church triumphant.

The world is in need of a demonstration of practical Christianity. In view of the fact that those who claim to be followers of Christ are a spectacle to an unbelieving world, it behoves them to make sure that they are in right relation to God. . . . In order to stand as lights in the world, they need to have the clear light of the Sun of Righteousness constantly shining upon them. . . . {HP 313.5}

God’s people so fully separate themselves from evil that He can let the light of heaven rest upon them in rich measure, and shine forth from them to the world, then there will be fulfilled more fully than it has ever been fulfilled in the past the prophecy of Isaiah, . . . “The Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. . . . The abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, and the force of the Gentiles shall come unto thee” (Isa. 60:3-5). {HP 313.6}

When will that happen? When there are a people who have separated themselves from evil. When there are a people who have washed their robes and have made them white in the blood of the lamb and have conquered everything in their human nature through the glory of God through the everlasting gospel. Here is the call to be the Shadrachs, Meshachs and Abednegos of our time. As the glory of Jesus shines through them, the gross darkness that surrounds them will make them prominent.

In these last days, when iniquity shall abound and the love of many shall wax cold, God will have a people to glorify His name, and stand as reprovers of unrighteousness. They are to be a “peculiar people,” who will be true to the law of God when the world shall seek to make void its precepts, and when the converting power of God works through His servants, the hosts of darkness will array themselves in bitter and determined opposition. . . . {TMK 183.2}

They will be a contrast to a world that has been caused to worship the beast and his image. They will be a total contrast. Will they stand there proud saying we are the church triumphant, come to us we are Gods church, is that what they will be saying? That is not bible religion. The church triumphant will never have to say they are Gods church triumphant. They will never have to say that.

Bible religion is not to be boastfully paraded, but quietly practiced in good words and works.–Ms 74, 1897.  {VSS 30.3}

Your silence will be so deafening that people will hear it. They will not boast of them being Gods church. All selfishness has been wiped out of their life through Jesus Christ.

…through them the Father’s mercy and goodness are made manifest to a world enshrouded in the darkness of misapprehension of God. By seeing their good works, others are led to glorify the Father, who is above; for it is made manifest that there is a God on the throne of the universe whose character is worthy of praise and imitation. The divine love glowing in the heart, the Christlike harmony manifested in the life, are as a glimpse of heaven granted to men of the world. {HP 316.3}

What will they see? They will see the church triumphant having such divine love glowing in the heart. Such Christ like harmony growing in the life. This is what they will become. This is the loud cry. What will be the circumstance that will bring the faithful people to the public eye and ear? That the whole world is going to be covered with the brightness of this angel as per Revelation 18. When we read this we think there is going to be great evangelism. God is going to work not according to any human plan.

Revelation 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

How can this happen with a tiny little church? This is the argument of many big churches. What can you small people do? What did it need? Three people. The whole world will be lightened with his glory.

Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

How will God ever do that? How will he do it? Now we are inconspicuous. Now we are in a position of not being much known but movements are afoot that will bring us to the fore. What is foreshadowed?

As the movement for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided, the law will be invoked against commandment keepers. They will be threatened with fines and imprisonment, and some will be offered positions of influence, and other rewards and advantages, as inducements to renounce their faith. But their steadfast answer is: “Show us from the word of God our error. {GC 607.1}

Remember the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego? Come on, just bow down, you won’t have to die. Show us from the word of God our error will be their constant plea. We are seeing what is written in the manner by which Gods people will be brought forward. As the Sunday movement becomes more emphatic, we will go through these kinds of experiences.

In these last days, when iniquity shall abound, and the love of many shall wax cold, God will have a people to glorify His name, and stand as reprovers of unrighteousness. They are to be a “peculiar people,” who will be true to the law of God, when the world shall seek to make void its precepts; and when the converting power of God works through His servants, the hosts of darkness will array themselves in bitter and determined opposition. Satan will work with “all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.” He will employ every device of deception to seduce the souls of men. . {OHC 347.2}

They are standing as a reprover of unrighteousness. How are they standing? While everyone is bowing down they are standing. That is how they reprove. The early church was a pain to the evil doers by their example. As Satan is doing this, he digging his own grave because the more he does it, the more Gods people will stand and they will be made prominent. A peculiar people who will be true and arouse the annoyance of others. We hear today, oh you want to be a goody do you. That attitude will become prominent of these last days. As this is stirred and people made prominent by this stirring;

Conscientious obedience to the word of God will be treated as rebellion. {GC 608.1}

A thus as it is written will be regarded as rebellion. Have you gone through something simular recently?

Blinded by Satan, the parent will exercise harshness and severity toward the believing child; the master or mistress will oppress the commandment-keeping servant. Affection will be alienated; children will be disinherited and driven from home. {GC 608.1}

These are the circumstances as these circumstances take place,

To human wisdom all this now seems impossible; but as the restraining Spirit of God shall be withdrawn from men, and they shall be under the control of Satan, who hates the divine precepts, there will be strange developments. The heart can be very cruel when God’s fear and love are removed. {GC 608.1}

Parents, employers, all those who are associated with Gods people, what will happen as they receive these terrible onslaughts by these own kin and friends? How will these people be brought into prominence?

Kings, governors, and great men will hear of you through the reports of those who are at enmity with you, and your faith and character will be misrepresented before them. But those who are falsely accused will have an opportunity to appear in the presence of their accusers to answer for themselves. They will have the privilege of bringing the light before those who are called the great men of the earth. {Mar 253.2}

I am going to report you, you are going to court as you are not playing the game as we want you to. I think something like that is afoot right now, threats for court? Those who are directly associated with us are going to put us before Kings, rulers and governors.

…and if you have studied the Bible, if you are ready to give an answer to every man that asketh you of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear, your enemies will not be able to gainsay your wisdom.–Review and Herald, April 26, 1892.  {Ev 560.3}

God’s faithful people will defeat the enemy by the enemy taking them to the courts. Kings governors will hear of you through those that are at enmity of you.

Those who are arraigned before the courts make a strong vindication of the truth, and some who hear them are led to take their stand to keep all the commandments of God. Thus light will be brought before thousands who otherwise would know nothing of these truths. {GC 607.1}

Do you want to be the world’s evangelists? Live your Christianity quietly now. Be faithful, overcome every corruption, every lust and you will become the worlds greatest evangelists. I know it to be true. As they stand there in the courts, what will the kings and the nations see?

By seeing their good works, others are led to glorify the Father, who is above; for it is made manifest that there is a God on the throne of the universe whose character is worthy of praise and imitation. The divine love glowing in the heart, the Christlike harmony manifested in the life, are as a glimpse of heaven granted to men of the world. . . . {HP 316.3}

This is what they will see in the courts as there will be a people standing there in a Christ like manner defending the cause. Just as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said king, oh king, ever so kindly, we are not afraid to answer you. Here is the God of heaven, here is what he is like.

You may not be a minister, but you can be a witness. You may not be an eloquent speaker, but you can be eloquent in living Christ, you can be eloquent in letting your light shine before men. {HP 318.5}

A true, lovable Christianity is the most powerful argument that can be advanced in favor of Bible truth. Such a man is Christ’s representative. His life is the most convincing evidence that can be borne to the power of divine grace. When God’s people bring the righteousness of Christ into the daily life, sinners will be converted and victories over the enemy will be gained. {HP 318.6}

That is what they will see. How will the entire world see it? You’ll be in court. Satan has manufactured technology today he is going to be caught by his own technology. Those who stand in the court will be seen through the internet, television. Isn’t it covering the whole world? It’s going to cover it like water. God’s people will stand in the court glorifying God. What will they hear? They will see it, what will they hear? You don’t have to be a minister.

The Lord Jesus will give the disciples a tongue and wisdom that their adversaries can neither gainsay nor resist. Those who could not by reasoning overcome satanic delusions, will bear an affirmative testimony that will baffle supposedly learned men. Words will come from the lips of the unlearned with such convincing power and wisdom that conversions will be made to the truth. Thousands will be converted under their testimony. {Mar 252.4}

Thousands who’ve never heard it before will hear through the courts because they are supposedly the unlearned. Why should the illiterate man have this power? Do you regard yourself as incapable as speaking in the public?

Why should the illiterate man have this power, which the learned man has not? The illiterate one, through faith in Christ, has come into the atmosphere of pure, clear truth, while the learned man has turned away from the truth. The poor man is Christ’s witness. He cannot appeal to histories or to so-called high science, but he gathers from the Word of God powerful evidence. The truth that he speaks under the inspiration of the Spirit, is so pure and remarkable and carries with it a power so indisputable, that his testimony cannot be gainsaid. {Mar 252.5}

A loud cry? A loud cry indeed. This is the power of the loud cry. Gods over comers under forced display. Not boastful display, under forced display. Their actions, their lives, their verbal manners, their manner of answering speak louder than any human power can do. It is the loud cry. What then is to be your and my preparation? What is it? We have already studied some of that and here is the summary of it.

…if you have studied the Bible, if you are ready to give an answer to every man that asketh you of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear, your enemies will not be able to gainsay your wisdom. {Mar 253.2}

What must you do now? We must now study the bible now for what purpose? Not to become eloquent speakers, we are to study the bible so that it affects your life. The hope that is created in you through the word.

You now have an opportunity to attain to the greatest intellectual power through the study of the Word of God. But if you are indolent, and fail to dig deep in the mines of truth, you will not be ready for the crisis that is soon to come upon us. O that you would realize that each moment is golden. If you live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God, you will not be found unprepared. {Mar 253.3}

You don’t have go to university to study, you don’t have to go to high school to get the high school certificate. All you have to do is to study the bible and you will gain the greatest intellectual power.

You know not where you may be called upon to give your witness of truth. Many will have to stand in the legislative courts; some will have to stand before kings and before the learned of the earth, to answer for their faith. Those who have only a superficial understanding of truth will not be able clearly to expound the Scriptures, and give definite reasons for their faith. They will become confused, and will not be workmen that need not to be ashamed. Let no one imagine that he has no need to study, because he is not to preach in the sacred desk. You know not what God may require of you. {Mar 253.4}

Remember we are to become the world’s evangelists. How? By having the word of God installed into my being. Then when I am called upon to witness in the courts, it will be with a power. What is needed? Preparation.

As long as there are many asleep, many sporting away the precious hours in careless indifference, as it were, upon the very brink of the eternal world, those who do believe must be sober, must be awake, must be earnest and diligent, and watch unto prayer. . . . {Mar 220.5}

Do we waste precious moments? To be ready, I need to know. To be ready the ministry needs to preach the pure truth so I will hear it. So you will go home and go over it and put it into practise. This church triumphant is a church that will press together and it will be an entire team.

God calls upon every church member to enter His service. Truth that is not lived, that is not imparted to others, loses its life-giving power, its healing virtue. Everyone must learn to work and to stand in his lot and place as a burden bearer. Every addition to the church should be one more agency for the carrying on of the great plan of redemption. The entire church, acting as one, blending in perfect union, is to be a living, active, missionary agency. {HP 317.4}

God has a church worldwide. It is the church militant and the church militant and will be Gods church from all around the world. Every member will be in a position of prominence and they will all speak the same thing in amazing power. Do not seek to be excused whoever you are as you are to prepare yourself as you are going to be brought into prominence. When people say, you are all following your minister whereas we are following the Lord Jesus Christ. An army perfectly united proclaiming the loud cry. Here is what the entire church will reveal.

The love of Christ, the love of our brethren, will testify to the world that we have been with Jesus and learned of Him. Then will the message of the third angel swell to a loud cry, and the whole earth will be lightened with the glory of the Lord. {6T 401.1}

May we regard every moment as golden. Whatever we do, do all to the glory of God.

Amen.
