The Banquet of the Lord

Audio: The Banquet of the Lord 

As we think of baptism it is dying and rising with Jesus. What a contract, what a covenant to make. When we think of covenants and contracts, we think of making such things with an item or a scenario that is valuable. Many people today want you to sign up for things and make a contract and there may be no value in it so we push it away. Sometimes there comes across a valuable item and we want to make a contract in that. Or an oath or a covenant to have benefits of what that is offering. Indeed that is what baptism is. A contract, a covenant. How valuable is that to me, my baptism. Do I value the co-labour that Jesus wants to have with me? Do I value that? Contracts are made with things of value. There once was a contract made and there was value apparently seen. It’s interesting to note how the contract took place.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.

There was an offer for a contract.

Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

There was a contract made. Adam had dominion over this world and the contract was handed over to the enemy, Satan and in turn Satan would make them as Gods. The contract was made by eating. The woman saw something valuable. She didn’t hesitate and took it.  Another example is Abraham;

Genesis 18:1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw [them], he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

18:3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

18:6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead [it], and make cakes upon the hearth.

18:7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave [it] unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

18:8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set [it] before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

You can see how the bible shows how eager he was to put a feast for his lords. For his Lord and the angels that were with him. He wanted to make a contract. Likewise, Lot.

Genesis 19:1. And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing [them] rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

19:2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

19:3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

In the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the person who ate with these heavenly beings was saved. They made contracts. In that, they ate. We don’t have that ritual today. We seem to sign things more than eat with people. But we need to understand, this was biblical custom. To have a contract with someone was to sit down and eat with them.

Genesis 24:53 And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave [them] to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.

24:54 And they did eat and drink, he and the men that [were] with him, and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said, Send me away unto my master.

Another contract was made. The securing of Rebekah to Isaac. Now Isaac and Imbelke.

Genesis 26:28 And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, [even] betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

26:29 That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou [art] now the blessed of the LORD.

26:30 And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

26:31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

You see the contract that is made? With this setting in mind, Jesus was ridiculed for eating and drinking with the publicans and sinners. The Pharisees asked why he was eating with them as Proverbs 23 says you should not eat with him that have an evil eye. It was forbidden in the OT. Notice the terms in which Jesus ate with them. The reply of Jesus is very interesting.

Mark 2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.

2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

2:17 When Jesus heard [it], he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

What sort of contract was Jesus making with the publicans and sinners? Was it not an agreement of repentance and turning away from sin? As we look at these old symbols of the Old Testament of eating being a contract. It’s wonderful to think of the symbols that the bible is using but let us not get caught up in symbols but what they represent.  As we consider, eating is making a contract with one another. The banquet of the lord is an agreement, oath, a covenant. The terms that Jesus ate were terms of repentance. What are the terms from Jesus to anyone that wants to sup with him?

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

11:30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

Jesus is saying, have a contract with me. Yoke together with me. The condition is to learn of me. To learn repentance, to learn the way of salvation. To have a feast with God.

Exodus 5:1 And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.

You see Gods priorities, Moses and Aaron, and Abraham, wanting a meal, a contract with such a one that can bless.

Exodus 10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we [must hold] a feast unto the LORD.

Why was it so important? It was their salvation. Why is baptism so important? We have baptism and straight after we have the Lords ordinance, we have a feast that is part of a contract with baptism. This feast they wanted to have was none other but the Passover feast. We must go because we will. It was their priority. Is it your priority to be at the marriage supper of the lamb? When weddings are conducted today, much trouble is made to be there, people travel far. Do you see the value of the marriage supper? That contract when sin will not rise anymore. That contract of marriage is for life. This is the message for the time we live in, the marriage supper of the lamb. This is a literal feast to be had. In that feast there is a literal covenant made. A marriage, a covenant. Wouldn’t you love to be there? Do you see it valuable?

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Oh, there is a preparation. Before any marriage, there is a preparation. Do you trust God? It’s a reality, blessed if you are called to the marriage supper of the lamb, to eat at that table. That long table which will have all those who are to be saved. The great multitude. To be able to converse with one another at a meal. This is not pie in the sky but a true saying of God. Do you desire such a feast with God? Baptism is an expression to feast with God. As we have the Lords ordinance, it is for a desire to feast with God. As it says, the wife hath made herself ready. Obviously there is a preparation to be gained to be in such a beautiful place and person God. That is to feast with him. In two other feasts before that feast. This is the feast Moses and the children of Israel were very keen to have.

Exodus 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike [it] on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; [and] with bitter [herbs] they shall eat it.

12:9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast [with] fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; [with] your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it [is] the LORD’S passover.

12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

12:43 And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This [is] the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

12:44 But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

12:45 A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

If they were to have this feast/contract, they were to eat it with the blood of the lamb.  This contract with God is the contract we make when coming out of Egypt. We are to be circumcised with is baptism. The cutting off of the fleshy life is gone. When you do that, you can have a contract with God that you will leave Egypt. It has to be done in haste.  Often conversions can appear to us be a dramatical thing. Have you ever seen someone in the world and all of a sudden, many things change? They don’t go where they used to go. A very typical conversion from a worldly person is a release from Egypt. Can you relate that to you own experience where you once lived a certain way and now you don’t? Let us think of the feast as a contract, a union that we have with God. We know that eating is partaking of Jesus blood and his flesh. We know that. That is what a feast is all about. To partake of what Jesus is and what makes him. Coming out of Egypt. Was Jesus ever part of this world? He wasn’t. The feast is to be the feast of unleavened bread. This is the first feast  -conversion.  It’s wonderful to think of feasting with each other but these mean real things. This is practical communion. This is what Christianity is all about.

1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us:

5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.

5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

This is justification, the wiping away of the worldly life. The removing of what was once there. How do you keep a feast with God in real terms? Sincere and true learning of Jesus. What are the terms to eat with Jesus? If you learn of me, then you can eat with me. Do you sincerely gain the truth of Jesus life? This is exactly the feast that was conducted by Moses. The keenness of Moses to say, we will go from Egypt and we will feast with God set the conditions of feasting with him. You had to be circumcised to feast. What does it say?

1 Corinthians  5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

Don’t feast with a fornicator or extortioner, these are Gods terms. You make a contract.  We are now to learn Gods ways. Learn of me. This was the feast.

Galatians 4:3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:

4:4 But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

How seriously do we take our preparation of the marriage supper of the lamb? Do we want to feast with him then? We must feast with him now. We know that the bread is the word. To see what it is to come out from an old life. To become a son of God is to come out of the world. To be a son is to be an heir. Wouldn’t you be called to the supper of the lamb if you were son? To secure a place in heaven at that table we must make ourselves ready by partaking of the Passover feast in real terms. We do it in symbol in the Lords supper. But in real terms is what I’m referring to.

Exodus 23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.

The three feasts, the feast of trumpets conducted in the beginning of October, unleavened bread, and tabernacles were the feasts that were conducted in the year. The feast of trumpets 10 days before the day of atonement, the feast of tabernacles five days after. One feast at the beginning, two feasts at the end. These feasts have prophetic reality to them. We are not going into the broad reality but the personal reality. 10 years before the day of atonement, William Miller preached the hour of Gods judgement is come, the trumpet. It was a fulfilment of the feast of trumps. The day of atonement happened and after the feast of tabernacles, which is the marriage supper of the lamb which is after the judgement has passed. We are in the middle of the two in this part of earth’s history. The feasts that make us ready personally. To be able to partake of such an experience. When someone is converted, there is a new thrill as a new experience is made. Many things are happily put away with joy. The human mind loves change. With this new conversion there is a happiness to put away all these things. Being early in the year which is early in the Christian experience, but as the months roll on it says the love of many grows cold because iniquity abounds. Iniquity is festering in those who are to be ready. This first feast was a shape of very obvious worldly things but then comes the experience of the feast of trumpets. Here now is another contract. What were the trumpets all about? What was the point of the trumpet?

Numbers 10:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

10:2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

10:3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

The feasts of trumpets were a day of continual trumpet blowing. It was a time for them to hear that the Day of Atonement, the judgement hour had come. They had to make themselves ready. How did the people respond in these days to such trumpet blowing?

Exodus 19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that [was] in the camp trembled.

19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

This feast we know is the studying of Gods word and the contract that we have with Jesus. Previously, seven months beforehand, there was a contract made and it was a joyous contract in a way, it was a release from bondage, freedom. They got to love God. Such mercy, such display against the Egyptians. Look at our God, look at how he works for us. As the months and years roll on, our life ceases to be so vigilant as it was before. We forget to know God as we did before, his love and mercy and we can develop a light hearted concept of God. Here the word needs to be read differently.

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.

Isaiah 66:2 For all those [things] hath mine hand made, and all those [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

There comes a time in the Christian experience where God has to arouse Christianity to a fact that God will not be mocked. Gods word although it is for us and not against us, although it displays great love, it does not lighten the duty that we have. Man has to be reminded before the judgement of their sins. Although Egypt is behind us, there are still sins in us that need to be wiped out. Moses and Israel trembled at the sound of the trumpet. Who will God look at now? Those that tremble at his word. Those that are having a feast, is it a joyous feast? It is a trembling feast.

Psalms 81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.

This is a Psalm about the feast of trumpets. The new moon was the beginning of October. It is now time to read the bible not in a sentimental way that God is for me and not against me because what it says is what it means. There is the prophecy of the flying scroll in the Old Testament. The scroll went into the house and it consumed the house and everything that they had including themselves. The scroll was the Scriptures, the law of God. For someone who has come out of Egypt loving God it is a comfort, for others it can your destruction. Today it is not time to light heartedly read the Scriptures. What we gain out of the Scripture today, isn’t what others gathered before. We are to feast a solemn feast. How many people made the first contract and didn’t make it to Canaan? How many people are baptised and it doesn’t mean you’ll make it. You can have a lovely feast with Jesus but if you don’t have the solemn feast, you’ll be consumed. What do people do?

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

It’s good to understand the fundamental truths but we are to read the bible for what we are to do. It is good to understand the doctrines and principles but now it’s time to read it to perfect you to every particular. When people feel the 2nd contract coming along, the second contract, what do they do?

Isaiah 4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

We don’t have to stop being Christians but we don’t to continue eating with you but we want our own bread because this solemn feast of trumpets is too bad. Those who have eaten with Jesus once come along many years after and don’t want to eat again.

Psalms 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.

Did Judas eat with Jesus? Did Judas sense a desire to be with Jesus. In the hour of feasting reading the bible and scrutinising it to see what we are to do today, people lift up their heel against him. Baptism, went through that, because iniquity abounded the trumpets showed people their sin, some fight against it, some say they’ll eat their own bread and will continue a Christian experience outside of Gods way. How do we take the real facts of this feast? We are in them today. It’s good to think of this feast parallel but this is real. Although we are not feeding our tummies, we are feasting.

Isaiah 21:3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing [of it]; I was dismayed at the seeing [of it].

21:4 My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me.

21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, [and] anoint the shield.

21:6 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth.

21:7 And he saw a chariot [with] a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, [and] a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:

21:8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:

21:9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, [with] a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her Gods he hath broken unto the ground.

21:10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.

21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?

Have you ever had a watchman explain what he sees? I have. How do you take it? What does the watchman see? Eat and drink. Babylon is fallen. Let us not think that feasting is any different from this. My pleasure was turned into fear. The fear of this new change, it was the first feast. Seven months later, you’ll have another one. Another contract. Three feasts in the year. We’ve had our first, let’s have our second. Who are we feasting with?

Psalm 102:1 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.

102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are mad against me are sworn against me.

Do you sense that there is not much time left? Our days are vanishing away? Did you feel in your first Christian experience that you were lifted up? Then that you were thrown down as though the indignation of God was on you? This is Jesus experience. Jesus says he will sup with us if we learn of him. Jesus went through the feast of trumpets. He felt what it was like to be chief of sinners. This drinking and eating is drinking of ashes and tears. When the watchman is set. The bible has set a watchman, and what does he see? It’s fearful to be a watchman. If the watchman sees the sword coming and he doesn’t warn anyone, and the people are destroyed, the blood of the sword is on that watchman. Let us not look humanly at this feast but heavenly. His bride has made herself ready. There are three feasts in the year. We don’t have to look into detail of what we should be living.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.

4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and [your] joy to heaviness.

God is love, his banner of love is over us. As many as I love I rebuke and chasten, be zealous therefore and repent. To be able to partake of the heavenly feast it says;

There were three annual feasts, the Passover, the Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles, at which all the men of Israel were commanded to appear before the Lord at Jerusalem. Of these feasts the Passover was the most largely attended. Many were present from all countries where the Jews were scattered. From every part of Palestine the worshipers came in great numbers. The journey from Galilee occupied several days, and the travelers united in large companies for companionship and protection. The women and aged men rode upon oxen or asses over the steep and rocky roads. The stronger men and the youth journeyed on foot. The time of the Passover corresponded to the close of March or the beginning of April, and the whole land was bright with flowers, and glad with the song of birds. All along the way were spots memorable in the history of Israel, and fathers and mothers recounted to their children the wonders that God had wrought for His people in ages past. They beguiled their journey with song and music, and when at last the towers of Jerusalem came into view, every voice joined in the triumphant strain,–

Our feet shall stand

Within thy gates, O Jerusalem. . . .

Peace be within thy walls,

And prosperity within thy palaces.

Ps. 122: 2-7. {DA 75.2}

Here is repeated the feast which is conducted after, the marriage supper of the lamb. There is repeated the way the Lord led us on earth. There the Jews contemplated how Jesus led them in the wilderness all the way along. When we sit at that table its not about eating whatever is there but about communing with Jesus and all those who are at that table and saying this is an experience we had, how the angels helped us. We will see our grave danger that we were in on earth. That feast of tabernacles is a joyous feast.

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. . . . And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. He is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Rev. 19:6-9; 17:14. {COL 421.2}

Because that feast is a joyous feast. That feast is a time to praise God for his mercy and love. The bride would have made herself ready.  What is marriage without making a preparation? God is wanting us to be called. Blessed are you if you are called to this feast. Although the feast of trumpets is a trembling experience, we tremble at Gods word.  We have no reason for disobedience in this day, it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

John 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

A woman when she is in travail has sorrow. Isn’t that what Isaiah said?  I have pains, pain like a woman giving birth.

John 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

When we have had that feast of tabernacles we won’t even recall the details of the feast of trumpets.  The feast of tabernacles is seven days, seven times longer than the feast of trumpets.  I praise the Lord for that because what we are experiencing is only a seventh or a portion of the completeness of that meal.

John 16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

It is my prayer that we can be part of the great marriage supper of the lamb and be ready by feasting and contracting with him and not lifting our heel against him.

Amen.

    • Sabbath Sermons

      yes certainly. use all the sermons in here you like. there is no copyright. Let me know if you need any other help. God bless.

    • Sabbath, I have been authoring the things of God that He allowed me to author for a very long time. and although they mean a lot to me, what means most to me is, you! Ariadne, I love you like I love and respect my own daughters. I love you my sister living in another hemisphere, because I can see that the LORD loves you. I can see that the Lord has honored you as His own and I HAVE NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. But, and this is where we do not come completely together, Ariadne, the Lord does not reveal all of His Mysteries, to those who He has dealt with in past. Each generation receives their allotted Revelation, no more, no less. Daniel’s angel said: Dan 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Let me ask: Were those who were alive in 1850 living in the end of time? No, so they had revelation from God, but they did not have end time revelation from God. God said, His words were sealed. Now they are open, and God has sent later prophets, with later light, and the question is, will the Church receive them or will the Church reject them as they rejected Helen White in her day?
