God’s Last Gift of Love

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

We have been contemplating and marvelling at God’s great love. Just recently we have been considering the wonderful love of God for His people living just prior to His coming where He has promised to them the gift of the testimony of Jesus which is according to the Bible the Spirit of Prophecy.

His love sent a prophet, for what purpose? To confirm those to the coming of the Lord Jesus so that those who are waiting for the coming, will be rendered blameless. The Spirit of Prophecy, the testimony of Jesus was given so that God’s people could be rendered blameless. As we scout through Bible prophecy, we see indeed there are a people standing at the end of the church’s history.

Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The remnant of the woman’s seed. All through the book of Revelation 2 and 3 is the church in its periods of time right through to the end and that is the woman. The Bible is clear in demonstrating that the woman is God’s church. At the very end is the woman’s seed and then the remnant of her seed. The remnant of her seed, keep the commandments of God and hath the testimony of Jesus.

But what did you read about this company of people? It said not only was Satan wroth with the woman but what is he doing to this remnant of her seed? He came to make war with the remnant of her seed who had kept the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus. God in His wonderful love as He sees, the very people who have the testimony of Jesus, the Spirit of Prophecy, those very people who are so richly blessed with His guidance through the Spirit of Prophecy, those very people are being harassed by Satan more than anybody else.

He is actually not only “wroth” with them he is making open war against them and God in His great love while the enemy is doing this work, sends a final assistance of love to those people. The enemy of our souls is playing havoc among the people of God by the misuse of the Spirit of Prophecy. The Spirit of Prophecy is so succinct and so clear in delineating the sins of God’s people so that they might discover them and put them away, that Satan uses those testimonies and crushes the light out of God’s people if he could.

He comes along and he quotes statements from those wonderful testimonies and he puts them in a light that is condemnatory. He puts them in a light that makes you feel as though you have no hope. That’s only Satan’s effort; he is making war against you. By misusing the very message of God’s love, God has to do something extra special to help these poor souls. He sends them an extra special comfort, He never ceases to share His love with us. As time goes on things get tighter and more difficult, His love is more explicit. Here He sends us a message after being harassed by the evil one in Hosea 6:3

Here is the story of the remnant of God’s people. When you are being harassed by the evil one he will say, “See what a sinner you are! The Spirit of Prophecy tells you that you have really hashed it, you’re really not doing what it says!” As he throws all this at you, you think that I’m not one of them am I? That’s the way he wants it to be pictured.

Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know, [if] we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter [and] former rain unto the earth.

When the latter rain falls upon your life, upon this remnant people, He is going to send a message of love and He is going to let you know, then shall you know if you follow on to know the Lord. How will you know? By the latter rain that He will give to this remnant people. But notice in what sequence this text came.

Hosea 6:1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Isn’t this an interesting sequence of experiences mentioned here? He has torn and He will heal, He hath smitten and He will bind us up. When you read the testimony of Jesus, the Spirit of Prophecy you will often read things that will really make you feel horrible, especially with Satan whispering over your shoulder at those statements. The remnant people of God will be smitten and torn but after two days He will revive us. In the third day He will raise us up and we shall live in His sight? What is this reminding you of? Is this not what happened to Jesus before us that in the third day He was raised again? He was smitten and torn for us and He went through into the terrible grave but He was revived and on the third day He rose up again.

This is the historic development of all God’s followers. They go through exactly the same experience and as we go through the last moments of earth’s history, we will not be spared. It’s very interesting that God who permitted Satan to tear and to smite Job. Job is a very wonderful example to us because he was being smitten and torn and Satan would do exactly the same thing with us today if we are going to be as faithful as Job. Satan will misuse the testimonies of Jesus and God will permit him to tear and to smite us just as He permitted Satan to tear and to smite Job.

Satan exercises his power upon them, and God does not interpose. Job was sorely afflicted, and his friends sought to make him acknowledge that his suffering was the result of sin, and cause him to feel under condemnation…
{3BC 1140.5}

That’s what Satan used the friends of Job for.

….They represented his case as that of a great sinner; but the Lord rebuked them for their judgment of His faithful servant {3BC 1140.5}

Job is brought distinctly before us as a man whom the Lord allowed Satan to afflict. The enemy stripped him of all he possessed; his family ties were broken; his children were taken from him. For a time his body was covered with loathsome sores, and he suffered greatly. His friends came to comfort him, but they tried to make him see that he was responsible, by his sinful course, for his afflictions. But he defended himself, and denied the charge, declaring, Miserable comforters are ye all. By seeking to make him guilty before God, and deserving of His punishment, they brought a grievous test upon him, and represented God in a false light; but Job did not swerve from his loyalty, and God rewarded His faithful servant (Manuscript 22, 1898). {3BC 1140.6}

What will Satan do? God will permit him to tear and smite you. God will permit him through the writings of the testimony of Jesus to point out to you that you have no hope. That is what Satan is using those testimonies for. Your actions are going to cause you to be lost forever, that’s the picture drawn by the enemy of souls. God will permit this to happen.

What Comfort Does God Give?

Hosea 6:3 He will send us the latter rain

The Jewish leaders had supposed that the work of Christ would end with His death;{AA 44.3}

After three days they thought that Jesus was dead now and that was it! The Jewish leaders had supposed that the work of Christ would end with His death.

They had thought to find the apostles cowed with fear under the strong hand of oppression and murder, but they find them lifted above all fear and filled with the Spirit, proclaiming with power the divinity of Jesus of Nazareth. They hear them declaring with boldness that the One so recently humiliated, derided, smitten by cruel hands, and crucified, is the Prince of life, now exalted to the right hand of God. {AA 42.2}

Some of those who listened to the apostles had taken an active part in the condemnation and death of Christ. Their voices had mingled with the rabble in calling for His crucifixion. {AA 42.3}

Now they heard the disciples declaring that it was the Son of God who had been crucified. Priests and rulers trembled. Conviction and anguish seized the people. “They were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Among those who listened to the disciples were devout Jews, who were sincere in their belief. The power that accompanied the words of the speaker convinced them that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. {AA 43.1}

Here is a perfect example of a people who were smitten and who the leaders of the church at that time imagined that they would now finish this uprising, it would be quenched! Their master has died and everything is fine and now these very people are recognized as God’s people. Then shall you know that you are following on to know the Lord. His coming shall be as the morning, the former and the latter rain. Here it was. It was the beginning of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit to identify a people who were the people of God who were smitten and torn as Jesus was but who would be uplifted and renewed and refreshed by this action of God’s love.

Just as the disciples after the crucifixion and the ascension received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit the comfort that is ours after we have been smitten and torn as it read in Hosea 6 after the second day we shall be revived on the third day we will be again uplifted. How will they be comforted? What was the latter rain there? The outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

The wonderful promise of God’s identification of His people by the outpouring of His Holy Spirit upon them is a love token when they are all totally crushed, torn and smitten that can be equated with love token of Job’s experience. You can see back there as the rise of the advent people under the three angels’ messages. Look how they ended up a tiny little company terribly smitten and torn because they expected Jesus to come and He didn’t come. How more disappointed and how more smitten does a spiritual condition want to become? Then came this wonderful message of Revelation 14:9. They had been proclaiming the first and second angel but they didn’t understand there was a third angel to come and now that they went through this bitter disappointment.

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,

14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.

Here is a warning to the world that these false religious systems just like the Jewish system had become corrupt. The other religious system had also become corrupt and they were identified as the beast and the image of the beast, a very important study to understand. As the third angel identifies this He says, anybody who would be a part of that is going to be suffering wroth of God.

Revelation 6:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Here is the patience of the saints. Here are they that keep the commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus and have the testimony of Jesus. Then you will know that you follow on to know the Lord. Humiliation, rejection, tearing and then uplifting and power. Then there came another experience forty years after. There came a very beautiful message of Christ and His righteousness that we often identify under the men that came with the message by Waggoner and Jones. These two ministers that proclaimed the beautiful message of Christ and His righteousness to a church that had become legalistic, to a church that had become harsh in its manner and the message of Christ and His righteousness was given.

How were these men who proclaimed the beauty of the message to the church at that time treated? The message was rejected, it was a message that was put aside by the leaders of the church, and history repeats itself again and again. Indeed there is a message of specific rejuvenation given here in Revelation 18 because it says there was another angel.

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.

Under the inspiration the testimony of Jesus as it is expressed here; the revelation of the righteousness of Christ.

The time of test is just upon us for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation of the righteousness of Christ the sin pardon redeemer. This is the beginning of the light of the angel whose light shall fill the earth. {LDE 194.3}

Here was the testimony of Jesus identifying these messengers with this message of Christ and His righteousness. Humiliation, rejection and then God’s glorious identification. It is written again that some people are looking forward to the outpouring of the latter rain in the ranks of advent people. They’re looking forward to it, they are still expecting it to come.

I have no specific time of which to speak when the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will take place—when the mighty angel will come down from heaven and unite with the third angel in closing up the work for this world. My message is that our only safety is in being ready for the heavenly refreshing, having our lamps trimmed and burning.—Selected Messages 1:192 (1892). {LDE 194.3}

People who are looking for a particular time when the Holy Spirit will be poured upon them, it was written here that there was no time given. The Angel of Revelation 18 was there in his proclamation back there in 1888.

We must not wait for the latter rain. It is coming upon all who will recognize and appropriate the dew and showers of grace that fall upon us. When we gather up the fragments of light, when we appreciate the sure mercies of God, who loves to have us trust Him, then every promise will be fulfilled. [Isaiah 61:11 quoted.] The whole earth is to be filled with the glory of God (Letter 151, 1897). {7BC 984.5}

The Ten Virgins

The very promise of the latter rain is entwined with the message of Christ and His righteousness of Revelation 18. It’s been with us, we must not wait for the latter rain, it is coming, she says. Note it will come; it is coming because this is the beginning under Revelation 18 angel’s message. There is no specific time, it says there “Our only safety is being ready for the heavenly refreshing having our lamps trimmed and burning” What does this remind you of? What is she referring to there? The ten virgins of Matthew 25. As you study the chapter of Matthew 25 we read there about the lamps and the oil. I’m not going to go into some proof text reading, I think we know that the oil is the Holy Spirit, and the lamp is the Bible. But here we read in this story that there are Christians who are sleeping and some have their lamps and some have oil with their vessels in them and as we just read, the message of Christ and His righteousness was given the call that you must be alert and awake and have your lamps trimmed and burning.

Matthew 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamp” 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

This parable followed the words of Jesus of Matthew 24 which is the experience of God’s people just before His coming. We are reading here the very detail of the experience of God’s people as God in His mercy gives the Holy Spirit. Where did the wise virgins have the Holy Spirit? In their vessels not just in their lamps. The lamp is the Bible, the Holy Spirit has inspired that. That’s where the light is and the oil is in the lamp but the wise virgins had oil in their vessels with them. What did that mean? The outpouring of the Holy Spirit that took place in the experience of the disciples indicates that they had Jesus inside of them, didn’t they? How did they have Him?

John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

He is with you and shall be in you. What does the Bible call your body? It is a vessel and to honor for the Lord. These wise virgins had the Holy Spirit in them.

All who come to Christ for a clearer knowledge of the truth will receive it. He will unfold to them the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, and these mysteries will be understood by the heart that longs to know the truth. He will unfold to them the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, and these mysteries will be understood by the heart that longs to know the truth. A heavenly light will shine into the soul temple, and will be revealed to others as the bright shining of a lamp on a dark path.
{COL 35.3}

Do you long to know the truth? These wise virgins with the oil in their vessels will be lights in themselves as they read their Bible. But there are others there who are also Christians who read their Bible but they haven’t enough oil, they haven’t enough of the Holy Spirit. Can you see once again that there are a people who are smitten torn and then the Lord comforts them and blesses them with His spirit and there are others that are not identified with them the foolish virgins and the wise? What did the wise virgins do?

The Procession of Christ’s Bridal Party

…The sleepers, suddenly awaking, spring to their feet. They see the procession moving on, bright with torches and glad with music. They hear the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride….{COL 405.2}

…The five with lighted lamps joined the throng and entered the house with the bridal train, and the door was shut….{COL 406.1}

Here is the proverb that illuminates the experience of God’s people in the last days. There is a bridal party that is moving along; the bride with the bridegroom. We know who the bride is and we know who the bridegroom is. What about the people who are actually identified by the wise virgins? They will join the bridal party and they will walk along with them and be identified with them because they have received the Holy Spirit in these last days. As they receive the Holy Spirit they are known that they follow on to know the Lord. Which is exactly what they do, they join the bridal party they follow on.

Therefore we see that in these times ever since the announcement of the third angel through to the fourth angel’s message in Revelation 14 and 18, we go through dates of experiences of God’s people – 1888,1914. You can identify the people who were faithful who would not go to war in the 1940’s who were obedient and the other ones that did. We go through the history from 1940 to 1951 and there you see the sad experiences of God’s people being tossed to and fro, here and there and we go right through to the triumph of God’s church at the end. We see that we are living in the time of the latter rain. But what do we see in the study of all this? As we look at the history through these times, here is a sad statement that identifies the experience of wise virgin versus the foolish those who receive the identification of God’s love in the Holy Spirit.

Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light. Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognize the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it. {TM 507.1}

At no point in our experience can we dispense with the assistance of that which enables us to make the first start. {TM 507.2}

Then it goes on to describe how the grain must grow under the rain and then it must grow and come to fruition into the ere in the corn and how this ere must ripen under the work of the Holy Spirit. We must continue to pursue the work of opening our hearts to the greater measures of the Holy Spirit because we are living right there at the time when Jesus is offering us the last measures, the full measure of His Holy Spirit. We need to identify it, we need to recognize it, we need to be a wise virgin, and how is that to be done? By daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues. If we don’t, it will be falling on hearts all around us and we will not recognize it.

That has been the history hasn’t it? Those who God identifies are regarded by others like Job’s friends, as they’re tearing and there is a sad experience as a result of their own stupidity. That is what happened in the First World War, so many were killed for their faith and those who looked on said “Well you should have just stayed with the church, you would have been alright.” They were torn, they were smitten but they came out under the joy of the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives. So among the members of the professed people of God the Spirit of Prophecy and the testimony of Jesus, will prepare a people to benefit when God sends His last Holy Spirit’s blessing.

Amid the confusing cries, “Lo, here is Christ! Lo, there is Christ!” will be borne a special testimony, a special message of truth appropriate for this time, which message is to be received, believed, and acted upon. It is the truth, not fanciful ideas, that is efficacious. The eternal truth of the Word will stand forth free from all seductive errors and spiritualistic interpretations, free from all fancifully drawn, alluring pictures. Falsehoods will be urged upon the attention of God’s people, but the truth is to stand clothed in its beautiful, pure garments. The Word, precious in its holy, uplifting influence, is not to be degraded to a level with common, ordinary matters. It is always to remain uncontaminated by the fallacies by which Satan seeks to deceive, if possible, the very elect. {7BC 984.2}

Don’t you hear the different churches saying this is the truth, that is truth come here be there! Be There! We have many religious fanciful ideas banded about nowadays. When you have to put on a public ministry and you have to seduce people to come by all sorts of paraphernalia, you know there is no powerful spirit there and you have to attract them by other means. If it’s not just the pure unadulterated Word, you know there is something missing there.

We are living under this war. We read it and he will seek to achieve his ends at a time when there are so many calls to your ears, ‘Come here is Jesus! Come and listen to Him here! Or come and listen to Jesus there!’ As you get all these different confusing messages, there is a powerful appreciation of unadulterated truth that you can recognize, it is appropriate, it affects your intelligence and it stated further up that heading.

Those who have held the beginning of their confidence firm unto the end will be wide awake during the time that the third angel’s message is proclaimed with great power (The Review and Herald, October 13, 1904). {7BC 984.1}

Indeed wide awake, at a time when there are so many distractions. As it is stated we are to be blessed by this final outpouring of the Holy Spirit prepared for translation. God’s final act of love, why is it God’s final act of love? Those who have held the beginning of their confidence firm until the end.

Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Enduring, holding your confidence firm until the end, they are wide awake. They will recognize the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

As the members of the body of Christ approach the period of their last conflict, “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” they will grow up into Christ, and will partake largely of His Spirit. As the third message swells to a loud cry, and as great power and glory attend the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble. Their faces will shine with the glory of that light which attends the third angel (The Review and Herald, May 27, 1862). {7BC 984.4}

It started back then and it has been going on from ever since. Do we believe that Jesus is coming very soon? We will see it clearly at the coming conference, which means that there is no time left for dilly dallying. We need the recognition of the Holy Spirit to refresh just before the terrible trouble that is about to take place we can already feel it. It’s already pressing upon God’s people.

Expression of the Latter Rain

How is the latter rain expressed? How is it recognized?

Joel 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first [month].

Here is the statement “Be glad” why? Because after you have been smitten and torn God has permitted Satan to do that to you. Be glad because now you are going to experience the refreshing that will prepare you for the grand finale.

Joel 2:27 And ye shall know that I [am] in the midst of Israel 28 And ye shall know that I [am] in the midst of Israel and [that] I [am] the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. 29 And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 30 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

That’s why I love to see young people becoming energetic for Jesus. That’s what is written, that is what will happen. Can’t we see it happening? Can’t we see the activities upon the lives of these souls? That they are actually prophesying? Prophesying doesn’t mean just giving prophecy it means preaching. Notice in what time they are talking about?

Joel 2:30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

Isn’t that an atomic explosion? Palm trees of smoke, pillars. That’s where that comes from. Wars of blood and fire that we have seen in the First and Second World Wars and September 11. All these other things can’t we see it in front of us as it is written here.

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. 32 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call. ”

The Remnant

It’s a partial fulfillment in the days of the apostles. We are living in a time when it is to be even more evidently manifested in the people of God. He will so bestow His Spirit upon His people that they will become a light amidst the moral darkness and great light shall be reflected in all parts of the world Oh that our faith might be increased and the Lord might work mightily with His people.

What really are we looking for? This gladness, how is it identified? As I read before, the truth that will stand in this moral darkness with power because there are going to be a people there that are so elevated by the Holy Spirit that they will stand against all the odds of the world around them. They will be identified no matter what is happening to prevent them and Satan is creating war upon them. What is actually their experience, what is the beautiful effect here?

Deuteronomy 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain; my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

What is the latter rain? The beautiful truth of the Holy Spirit truth presented in such a way as the disciples presented it back there against all the arguments of the religious leaders, they will be absolutely awed as they are confronted with Bible truth that is unadulterated by any fallacies and any spiritualistic overtones.

Because we are so much in danger of missing out, what shall we do to benefit? God will do this wonderful act of love. But because it says it may be falling on hearts all around, but some can actually miss out, what must we do to prevent this?

Prayer

We are in the time of the latter rain. It has been going on for a long time. What must we do not to miss out? Prayer. Our study in the Sabbath school lesson, prayer.

Zechariah 10:1 Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; [so] the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to everyone grass in the field.

Ask for it, pray for it! Plead for it! We are told, persevere in the Lord’s promise that He will give you the latter rain make it your heart’s involvement and you will not miss out.

Where will the latter rain fall? Who will receive it? Those who are crying for it, those who will be where God has promised them. Remember the disciples were told to go together into the upper room and there pray and wait? No different from today.

“Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain.” Do not rest satisfied that in the ordinary course of the season, rain will fall. Ask for it. The growth and perfection of the seed rests not with the husbandman. God alone can ripen the harvest. But man’s co-operation is required. God’s work for us demands the action of our mind, the exercise of our faith. We must seek His favors with the whole heart if the showers of grace are to come to us. We should improve every opportunity of placing ourselves in the channel of blessing. Christ has said, “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst.” The convocations of the church, as in camp meetings, the assemblies of the home church, and all occasions where there is personal labor for souls, are God’s appointed opportunities for giving the early and the latter rain. {TM 508.1}

Who’s appointed opportunity? God’s appointed opportunity, isn’t that what He did with the Disciples? Isn’t that what He did in all the history of the revelation of God’s Holy Spirit being poured out? So it is no different today.

But let none think that in attending these gatherings, their duty is done. A mere attendance upon all the meetings that are held will not in itself bring a blessing to the soul. … {TM 508.2}

Let us, with contrite hearts, pray most earnestly that now, in the time of the latter rain, the showers of grace may fall upon us. At every meeting we attend our prayers should ascend, that at this very time God will impart warmth and moisture to our souls. As we seek God for the Holy Spirit, it will work in us meekness, humbleness of mind, a conscious dependence upon God for the perfecting latter rain. If we pray for the blessing in faith, we shall receive it as God has promised.—(Testimonies to Ministers, 508.) {Pr 119.6}

The Latter rain will be recognized and received by all who hunger and thirst for it, and will deliberately place themselves into the channel where God’s appointed outpouring will take place. Anything short of that will be exactly the same as the five foolish virgins. That we begin to see that their friends have got something and they will say ‘how comes you’ve got it and I haven’t, give me some of yours!’ Sorry, nobody can pass out that kind of thing. It must be a personal craving and a personal reaching out for God in submission to all that He has been chosen for the path. Not poking at anything He says, just resisting the temptation of Satan to make it up to Him, just follow on to know the Lord. That’s a beautiful statement; follow on to know the Lord. God grant us that we will be among that people, it’s our choice, our deliberation and all that Bible reading personally we are pointed to be there, where God wants me to be.

Amen.
