“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

An email

Hello brothers and sisters,
I just ran across this email of almost 9 months in the past. Is anyone interested in starting up the email roundtable again? We can study the prophecies of the book of Daniel and bring them all together. If you aren’t interested, just reply with a “No” and I’ll take your name off of the address list.

I’ve been looking at one of the last things said in the book. “And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” (Dan. 12:7). We know the time, times, and an half ended in 1798. Then we see another event after 1798―God’s scattering of the power of His holy people. Who are the holy people after 1798?

We can get a better understanding by looking at Revelation 11. There we see the holy people in the two witnesses. They faithfully preach, and the enemies of the gospel fall back helplessly for 1,260 years. “He that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.” (Rev. 2:26,27). They can only do this through Christ’s power. “And she brought forth a man Child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.” (Rev. 12:5). Even the beast has no power over them. Until...

 ...after 1,260 years of the two witnesses’ successful defending the holy faith, the beast ascends out of the bottomless pit and makes war against them, overcomes them, and kills them. This refers back to Daniel’s prophecy, the scattering of the power of the holy people. Satan and his hosts can’t scatter their power immediately. First, he makes war with them while Ellen White still lived with the prophetic gift. “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.” (Rev. 12:17). I believe it’s not until after her death that Satan can overcome the defense of biblical truth by the Advent movement, and eventually kill its obedience to the original 3 angels’ messages.

But, that’s not the end of the prophecy. After the movement dies for a time period that signifies judgment, God breathes new life into His remnant of the approximate 2,000 year gospel cause, the two witnesses prophesy again, the 3 angels’ messages finally get preached and heeded, they fear God and give glory to Him, and the Latter Rain falls, the great shaking happens, they and a great multitude are sealed, the sanctuary is fully cleansed, and the time of trouble comes. (Rev. 11:11-19).

This is no time to get out of the Advent movement. We are just about to see the two witnesses resurrect from their slumbering and sleeping. Our power has been scattered long enough. We are just about to see and experience what we’ve been waiting for all these 170 years, the Latter Rain of the Spirit of God. “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:19-21).

Let us put aside our unreconciled differences. Let's seek the Lord with our whole heart.

Happy Sabbath, all.
