You have your Bibles. The 24th after Matthew. Beginning with 36 verse. But as the days of Noah were so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking marrying and giving in marriage until the day that no entered into the ark and knew not until the flood came and took them all away social also the coming of the Son of Man be now well what was really the problem with the people and no less time. Now was a problem. Why did they have to do to be saved. When they are I thought. When I was real simple one. Why didn't they go and they are. Well how it was that they were more they were more interested what people think and then what the large said one day. What was involved in this whole thing. Why their people would believe what God Center. And we mentioned was before it was no matter going into the ark it was a matter of believing God. They just they just didn't believe what God said now and they were busy was things that were all right the only problem was it kept them from doing what. And going at the other. They were marrying and giving in marriage or eating and drinking they were just living normal lives. As people were living in those days. But they were so involved in it they didn't go and they are all right now it's the social also the coming the Son of Man be. Then to be in the field. And one shall be taken and the other left. This is a this is a very interesting. Statement to show be where. Then what are the evidence they're doing. Working for you together. To be in the Thiele and what happened. One taken the other left. 2 women to be grinding at the male. What are they doing same thing exactly and what happens one is taken the other left now this is our friends I believe in the rapture they think that people are going to be called away. But that is was talking about what is this talking about. It ducking about. Their eternal decision their probation is close their their final decision is made they're going to make all of this season right about their day to day activities. Now remember this is what they wanted oftentimes then where they weren't in slavery. They wanted under bad circumstances they were under very normal good circumstances one what. One was taken alive. Doesn't say they were in war and one was killed and the other one wasn't. Doesn't say they were being persecuted it says what. Did you notice that they were that the separation took place when they were going about their daily long lock of hate. You think that's a significant say. So one out of a one these great calamities come and are they coming does God say they're going to go. What Well we have already decided at that time whether we've been taken on whether we're left. Does that make you think seriously. You see a lot of people are looking for all these things they're going to go make your decision no. When all of those things go the decision is made this is why God is keeping us as long as possible under good circumstances. You see a crisis. Does not. Change our character it only manifests our character. All right let's see what else is this 2 women shall be grinding at the male the one to be taken the other left Watch therefore for you know not what our your Lord does come. And I used to say well I wish the Lord would explain a little bit more let me explain about these 2 taken these that are working ones taking the on the left but as you know he gives for illustrations after that as the situations in which will they are going to be decided. The rest of this chapter is dealing with was one of the parable of the foolish virgins is another a parable a virgin's is another the parable the talent's is another the parable of a. Of a gathering of the sheep and goats these are all illustrations of what happens as a result of being taken I left. For the 3rd verse but know this that if the good man of the house had known what watch the thief would come he would have watched and would not have suffered his house to be broken up you hear all kinds of things about people being robbed today and they would break into houses now that if people knew at the time it was going to be broken into what would they do it stay there whether they stay there and what would make this is the illustration but they are not there because it comes land when they least expect it many expect there for being all so ready for in such an hour if you think not the Son of man cometh how many times has the Lord said this already it says in the $38.00 verse 4 as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage until the day that no entered in the ark and knew not until of looking they were not ready so show up social the comments on a man be then in the 42nd verse he says What for you know not the hour and the 41st 44th verse he says therefore be also ready for in such an hour if you think not. The son of man cometh who they and is a faithful and wise servant to me as Lord has given has made rule reads householder give them meat in due season blessed is that servant whom is Lord when He comes I shall find so doing of the doing that he's giving me to do seasonal what is needed to see. It means that we are living and acting and talking as if. Today is our last day and I think that. There is again. All right. Where all right where are the people. There in their daily work where is where is the decision made is it made in heaven or is it made on earth. But it excepted and recorded in heaven then while people are going about their daily activities without any abnormal circumstance or they're going to do one make their final decision. No this is not what Dr come this is before Christ go. Now if you just if you just. Postpone this just a little bit we'll get into this this has to do you see the police in the wise virgins are tied into the former and latter rain you've probably studied that now this isn't a class and closing advance while we're getting into some things about clothing advanced the thing that that this teaches. And the thing that is keeping of keeping people from doing is looking for some great event when they are going to make changes in their lives. You see I said this and we know it's true if the Lord I'd just let a little shower come what everybody tried to do. What it had been all over the arc and in the arc of just covered everything up what he did he wanted people to do what. To believe what he's saying. Now this says that while 2 men are working in the field one will be what one will be taken in the other left taken where one will be and that means that one is going to be prepared for heaven now remember the 2nd Coming of Christ is not suddenly an unexpected. Some period of time maybe months or weeks before it's announced from heaven the day an hour of Jesus coming. How many of you study closing events well most of it some of the heaven there is a deliverance of God's people I don't want to get off the subject to far but there is a do overs of God's people at midnight that's the death the Creed goes into effect when they're all to be completely annihilated and at that time this is not the 2nd coming of Christ this is some period of time before Jesus coming and at that time God from heaven announces the day and hour of Jesus coming now we don't know when Jesus is coming in the clouds of heaven now but it will be known. That is not a sudden coming. Sudden coming is when he comes to our name and. I see the brought my books today and I didn't think I would use but a couple but there's a statement These are from prophets. And if you remind me of it I'll bring it it's it says that. Judgment that's the decision our decision is made here on a turn and of course it is made here only if accepted in heaven. There is a point beyond which we cannot return not because God won't accept this because we come to the place where we are no longer susceptible to the Holy Spirit. But the thing that that this is teaching is this that under the circumstances of worry and normal daily circumstances people are going to decide on their eternal destiny and then this is telling about the difference between the one who is taken and the one who is left. And the 1st one it says that that was the say that this servant is is doing what he is a faithful servant and he is giving me to do things and he talks these acts he lives as if Jesus were coming and that he is ready at all times and but here's the other servant I want to know what he says but in the if that evil servant shall say any is heart say where. My lord the left is coming did you know it's possible for us to say in our heart that the larger Mazie coming and say what our mouth is that is coming soon. Is that right. It's real easy to say Lord I hope you don't come blood do such and such a thing I do so and so. That writer as it. Is it is it a plan we want to do certain things before certain things happen. And this is real dangerous because God has a timetable made. Now I don't want to leave the impression in all this that that God goes over some says the meaning my name oh and it's time for you to grow up judgment this is the way it works is all we are going to make our decision. And then God except that decision but I want to get the to the next parable it says but if that evil servant shall say any heart my lord delays His coming and shall begin to smite hisself fellow servants. To do what. Does that mean you have to take a sword and do it. Or are there other ways you can smite your fellow servants. You do with your tongue you can do it with actions. And still eat and drink with the drunk and you know you don't have to drink alcohol the drink with a drunk and. I've had a lot of young people come to me and talk to me about their own personal experience and I've heard had many of them say to me you know if I can control my appetite I have real problems. This is a 1st this is the 1st victory we're going to have to get. Because if we get the victory over appetite then we're going to have. The ability to overcome every other sentence. And if we fail to overcome our appetite we're not going to make it now we can do this in our own strength but the Lord didn't give us the victims. And I don't want to get inhabited because that's not what we're dealing with but these. The difference the 1st difference between those that are taken those are left is what one is giving me to do season by their lives by their words by their acts they are saying what Jesus is coming I don't know when but I'm going to be ready to anytime and the other person is saying in a hard line. Or delay of it's coming all right now let's go into the 25th chapter and this is the parable of the virgins. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be like in on the 10 virgins which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom and 5 of them were wise and 5 were foolish. And they that were foolish took their lamps and took no all with them but the wise took all in their vessels with their lamps while the bridegroom tarried they all slumbered and slept and at midnight there was a cry made behold the bridegroom cometh go yet to meet him then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps and the fully said unto the rise give us of your oil for our lamps are going out barges is going out. But the why is answered saying not so lest there be not enough for us in you but go ye rather to them that sell and buy for yourselves and while they went to buy the bridegroom came. And they that were ready went in with him to the marriage and the door was shut afterward came all soul the other Virgin saying Lord Lord open to us. But he answered and said Verily I say unto you I know you not watch therefore. For you know neither THE DAY nor THE HOUR wherein the Son of man cometh how many times have we had this statement. And this is at least the 4th time the greatest deception that will ever come to us the greatest danger we have is neglect and progress the nation will fall but all but all. Now. I want to ask you some questions about this this is a this is a very select group of people. Then still the kingdom of heaven be likened on the 10 virgins now what diversions represent. These are women that are pure. When we talk about a woman in prophecy and this is prophetic language this is symbolic language when you talk about a woman and if the poor woman it represents on your church or pure people. So these are not wicked people as far as as this parable is concerned they were all virgins they were all dressed like virgins. And they took their lamps they all had what. They all have what is a lamb. Was a lamp represent. The I word is a lamp unto our feet and one. They all have a Bible. All right let's see what else. And 5 of them were wise and 5 were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps they all had what. They all had lamps. And they that were foolish took their lamps and took no all with them. But the wise took all in their vessels with their lamps and I want to I want to read some comments now if you and I don't know how many of you had took time to read this but there is a very interesting statement regarding. The wise the foolish virgins and here's one that is taken from. The review and Herald August 1990. I am often referred to the parable of the 10 virgins 5 of whom were rise and 5 were foolish this parable has been and will be fulfilled to the very letter. To what. For it has a special application to this time. And like the 3rd angel's message has been fulfilled and will continue to be present truth to look close of time. In the parable of the 10 virgins headlamps. But only 5 of them had the saving on sale with which to keep their lamps burning. The why isn't foolish have their Bibles. But many do not appreciate the Appreciate the fact that they must have the heavenly unction. Now there are some very interesting things in Christ object lesson there's a whole chapter and verse object lessons on the whys of what is virgins. And I want to read. A few statements there. I was reviewing Harold August 4th 1990. You'd have to get a copy of this because I don't have a copy. The 2 classes of watchers represent the 2 classes who profess to be waiting for their Lord to come they are called virgins because they profess a pure faith. Now these are not people in Babylon are they. By the lances represented the Word of God. In the parable all the 10 virgins went out to meet the bridegroom they had best lands and vessels for oil for a time there seem to be no difference between them there seem to be one. Well with the tourists that lives just before the 2nd coming all have a knowledge of the scriptures all have heard the message of Christ approach and confidently confidently expect his appearing but as in the parables so it is now a time of waiting intervenes faith is tried and when the cry is heard behold the Bridegroom comes to go yet the media many are unready they have no all oil in their vessels with their lamps they are destitute of the Holy Spirit what is it they they do not have. All the spirit. Without the enlightment of the spirit man will not be able to distinguish truth from error and they will fall under their masterful temptations of Satan the class represented by the foolish virgins are not hypocrites yet. They were all sleeping they were all that. One of the 5 wives were sleeping because that's just the condition the church is in today. The Lord didn't didn't didn't just say they were sleeping he said they were sleeping because hot. There was a delay and I want you to know the best person in the church today is asleep to what God wants of the. I wonder how many of you knew that today is the anniversary. Of the Day of Atonement $144.00. 131 years. We have wandered in the wilderness 40 years we've wandered the wilderness 3 times 40 years plus 11. And there's. A need just mention the fact that that this that was a time there was no question that was a representation of this and do you know what it was why it was that. The children of Israel didn't go into the Promised Land. Well you know what happened just before that there was a mixed multitude among them going to the make smaller to God. It was Egyptian to join them but were never never had a change of heart they felt a lasting and what did they want. They wanted meat to eat they were tired of man. And they would and the whole lot of tooth the whole camp of Israel fellow lusting it says and so the Lord said all right I'll give you meat to eat. And so he had to quail K.-A common they flew just high enough so they could go out and take a stick and knock them down. And it said he that gathered least gathered 10 homers you know how much a homer it is. 6 bushel. So the one they gathered least had 60 bushel a quail. See they had a good bait and just after that the Lord has already it's time to go in the promised in the promised land but they were full of quail. And they said what. They sent 5 out of the spies the bank said yes it's a good land but. They're Giants. And all they had they had a wonderful report of the land all of the difficulties and then what did all the people begin to do again to morrow and they said oh it's too hot. Except tonight. All right. Now back to what we were discussing I will get to some of these points. These 5 Polish virgins who are not hypocrites what a hypocrite. Doesn't mean to be a hypocrite. It's the 1st No no they're not doing ride but they're go ahead anyway. So the 5 phone explosion who are not hypocrites they were not making up for frankly the knowing better what was their problem. They were deceived. As to their true condition. This is the whole tragedy of this thing they thought they were all right but they were. You see the 5 the 10 virgins do not represent all of the church. The owner of represent a part of the church because they're hypocrites in the church. When the people are hypocrites they're not even virgins. Virgins represent though that class who have already and 5 are not ready but they are do see you guys do their true condition it says they have a regard for the truth they have advocated the truth they are attracted to those who believe the truth but they have not yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit working. They have not fallen upon the rock Christ Jesus and permitted their old nature to be broken up this class are represented also by the stony ground hears they receive the word with a readiness but they fail of assimilating its principles if the influence is not abiding. The Spirit works. Upon man's heart according to his desire and consent implanting in him a new nature but the class represented by the foolish virgins have been content with superficial work they do not know God and the next says this. It is in a crisis that character is revealed I hope we'll all remember that one simple statement it is in a crisis that character is not. Revealed. One of these days something's going to break up on us and we will have made our decision. Before that time. But. This crisis object lessons page for 412. It is in a crisis that character is revealed when the earnest voice proclaimed at midnight behold the bridegroom cometh to yacht the medium and the sleeping virgins were roused from their slumbers it was seen who had made preparation for the event bowls parties were taken unawares were while. The 1st virgins and the wise virgins neither one are expecting to happen what happens neither one of them both are taken unawares but one is one. The 5 wise virgins are ready. Even though they have been sleeping. But one was prepared for the emergency and the other was found without preparation the 10 virgins are watching in the evening of this earth's history now they're all doing what they're all watching. All claim to be Christians all have a call a name a lamp and all profess to be doing God service all of terribly wait for Christ's appearing but 5 or unready 5 will be found surprised dismayed outside the banquet hall. Now. There's a very interesting statement regarding this awakening in the commentary. It's a comment on. Revelation 18. But in 7 days 93. We need to study the pouring out of the 7th vial the powers of Eagle evil will not yield up the conflict without a struggle but Providence has a part to act in the battle of Armageddon when the earth is lighted with the glory of the angel of Revelation 18 now what is the what is the angel of Revelation 18. This is a loud cry I want to know is the statement when they are it is lighted with the glory of the angel of Revelation let revelation 18 the religious elements good and evil will awake from slumber and they armies of the Living God will take the field know why it is in the forest origins and will wake up at what time when the loud cry goes. Yes 844 that was a midnight cry and yes. Well we have a lot of Christ started in. The midnight cry went back then. The loud cry is going to go away and one when the sun comes it's the it's a message all nations have what. And drunk of the wine of the wrath of our fornications when the time comes for the loud cry I can't tell you exactly how I don't know how this is going to come but there's going to be a message God and it's going to be a message just going to wake everybody up. But at that time. What has happened to those who know the truth. They have made their decision I don't know how this is going to come but there's going to be a message and it's going to be a message that's going to wake everybody up but at that time. What has happened to those who know the truth. They have made their decision. If if we wait for the waking up message is what. Do you all understand. This is why it's really important there's one I want to understand and I want to find out what's going on because a lot of people are waiting for the leather in there waiting for persecution. To Wake Up Now this is not the people there are a lot of people out of Babylon have to be called in you understand and they don't know all this but those of us who know the truth are going to make our decision before the people in the world it. Was. Yeah. Well it's the day it's $97.97 in the is exactly the same statement in the commentary the time of God's destructive judgments now this is without a doubt during a loud loud cry the latter rain this is when there is going to be a terrible condition they are the time of does destructive judgment is the time of mercy for those who have no opportunity to learn what is true. Tenderly we're Lord look upon them his heart of mercy is touched his hand is still stretched out to say good while the door is closed to those who would not enter now I don't want you to think that God is going to close our probation he isn't. But when the real time of stress comes when the time of when this real testing time comes. If we are not sanctified by the truth we're not will be able to take it. We won't stand we'll just. Take the final steps and go right on with the work. So now is the time you see it is not take long for God to finish his work we talk about things work this can be done very rapidly his problem is getting people ready to do it. That's why time has gone on and on and on but it's not going on forever. But in 7 page 979. It was volume volume 9 page 971997 is the same reference Exactly. Now the saddest of all words that ever fell on mortal ear are those words of doom I know you're not the fellowship of the Spirit which you have slighted could alone make you run with a joyous strong at the marriage feast in that scene you cannot participate its light would fall on blinded eyes its melody upon deaf ears its love and joy could awake no court of gladness in the world benumbed heart you were shut out of heaven by your own unfitness sports companions yet you cannot be ready to meet the Lord by waking when the cry is heard behold the bridegroom cometh and then gather up your empty lamps to have them replenished. Now the message of the of the 10 virgins is that under normal circumstances as you and I are living today we're going to we're going to have an experience and we're going to are we're going to fail to get it and we're going to we're going to make a decision that will not be manifest to less stress comes. See this said in the ending of the chairman of the Sermon on the Mount he said anyone that hears these words of mine and does them not is like a man that built his house on the sand. And anyone that hears the Saints and does them is like a man who built his house on the rock then it says what happened. The storm came the floods came the wind blew they beat up on that house and the one that was on the sand that hot bell and the one that was on the rock stood. Now the storm did not come on till the houses were built. Is all right. And the thing that I am really in in earnest about myself and about all those that I have anything to do it is a simple fact that we are in these days of peace and prosperity and this is what it is we are making our eternal decisions. And that decision will be made manifest when the crisis our comes. You see the great majority of 7th Day Adventists today are waiting for the loud cry to get ready I know I have I used to believe that I used to talk about. They're waiting for persecution persecution is not coming until people are ready because if they're being ready that range persecution. Persecution page $97.00 of a fraction profits I believe it's not a 7 it's Anyways the story about Cain and Abel and it says that persecution is the rage of a van Cleef thought. When Satan sees he can no longer control us then what is what's he going to do is going to turn persecution there's on us. But he's not going to do it as long as he can control us. All right now there's one more thing that I want to I want us to really think about and this is something that I I really didn't understand the only difference between them is they all Al and all in the vessels now how many of you ever seen the pictures of these were virgins going along and they had a lamp and they had a they had a flag and for all in one hand the lamp and the other you see these pictures one out isn't like that at all you know what the vessel that holds the oil is. Well it's poured out of the vessel into the land you see they had lamps and they had now remember the 1st version had some a while because they had lamps in the lamps were burning but the time of waiting they got tired and they failed to have that extra oil while they all had all but they didn't they had didn't have the extra well so when the message came a bright at midnight they poured the all into their lamps from their vessels All right. And Zachariah. The 4th chapter. Is a very interesting statement. And then I want to read the comment from what we read from Zachariah 1st. This is a companion. Prophecy. Saccharine for will begin the 1st verse and the angel a talk to me came again and wake me as a man that is wakened out of sleep out of his sleep and said in the ME what sia style and I said I have looked and behold a candle stick all of gold with a bowl upon the top of it and his 7 lamps They're all and 7 pipes to the 7 lamps which are on the top there of where do you suppose he's looking. Where. Where. In heaven that's right because this is the last day prophecy. And the 2 olive trees by I had one on the right side of the bowl and the other upon the left side so I answered and spake to the angel a talk with me saying what are these my lord then the angel a talk with me answered and said to me know if found out what these be and I said No my lord then he answered speaking to me saying this is the word of the Lord on this rubble saying Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit. Says a lot of holds. Now they're both 11 1st we don't we are reading it we just one study part of this then answered and said unto him what be these 2 olive trees upon the right side of the can a stick and upon the left side of the cat side there out and I answered again and said to him what be these 2 olive branches which through the 2 golden pipes empty the golden or allow themselves and he answered instead answered me and said no less now now what these be and I said No my Lord and He then said he these are the 2 anointed ones that stand by the Lord of the whole earth. Now without a doubt according to this prophecy the covering carobs. Are the ones that control the oil these are the anointed ones now to comment on this and from the commentary at. Its. Paid less than $79.00 and lemonade a volume 4 by the holy being surrounding his throne the Lord keeps up a constant communication with the have inhabitants of the earth the golden or represents the grace with God with which God keeps the lamps a believer supplied what is all else. It's his grace and what does it do to the lamp it causes them to burn. Were it not that this holy all is poor and from heaven in the messages of God Spirit the agencies of evil what have entire control over Man God is dishonored when we do not receive the communication that he sends us that's why we refuse the gold and all of which he would pour into our souls to be communicated to those in darkness now how do these messages come but we have in the Bible we have a spirit of prophecy This is how the message is these that this is the this is the testimony of God's Spirit these empty themselves into the golden bowls which represent the hearts of the living messengers of God who bear the word of the Lord to the people in warnings and entreating So what is the vessel in whole deal. Heart. It's not something you're carrying your hand and we pour the through the vet we pour the all from the vessel into the lamp now how do we get on well when it comes from the Holy One to stand in the presence of the Lord and as we study the Bible for ourselves. The Holy Spirit gives us an wide net and it goes into our hearts when we give it to others we have to pour it out of the vessels into the lamp so it comes from what. Was a come from our hearts. The diff. That's Volume 4 B.C. 1180 you see if the message is not in our hearts it will not light the lamps the difference tween the wise the foolish virgins is that one hand empty vessels and the other hand vessels for the oil which represents one. Heart. Like that. Filled represent our hearts that what is said. These empty themselves into the golden bowl those which represent the hearts of the living messengers of God So the difference between the wise the foolish virgins this is what. While in the heart and if we do not have all in our hearts then we cannot pour it out into the lamps you know I spent a lot of my life taking the Bible out and teaching people what was in the Bible but it wasn't in the you know how much effect it has now and all we can convince people of the true and the loud cry the Latter Rain is good is the people pouring out that stream of living all the grace from their hearts through the lamps to the people because they're connected with what they're connected with the candlestick with big golden pipes so the preparation for giving the last guy a message of God is being made when right now now does this help us to understand what it means it too will be grinding at the mail and one. Because what does one have has that living connection that all in their hearts and the other has failed to get it and so what happens to them. There lay but the manifestation of was there taken or or left is not until one until the until a loud cry when. The message is to go then everybody does what everybody wakes up now somebody asked the question what about they're going to get on well all right they are going to get all well. But they're going to come back and they're going to knock on the door and how does a large say I don't know you then what's the problem I said they got the oil from the wrong 4 see exactly they got their wealth from the wrong hole and they're going to tell me to see what they think they think they're already and what is that what is it was a say I don't what. What. Well if we don't have the grace of Christ in our hearts what kind of movies will we have. Also Modis. Can we have the right motive without the grace of God What can we do about the greater crime. Without me can one. Then. So if you're asking question all right without me you can what. Now it goes on to say. These empty themselves into the golden bowls which represent the heart of the living messengers of God who bear the word of the Lord to the people in warnings that in treaties the word itself must be as represented the golden oil anted from the 2 olive trees that stand by the Lord of the whole earth this is the baptism of the Holy Spirit with fire. This will open the solo unbelievers to conviction the wants of the soul can be met only by the working of the Holy Spirit of God man can do nothing of himself. To satisfy the longing and meet the aspirations of the heart the capacity for receiving the holy oil from the 2 olive trees which empty themselves is by the receiver emptying the holy all out of himself How do you get all out did you ever try to pull out for anything into a vessel that was full when Athan. Ability to receive is by what. Lie continually pouring out and the more you pour out what happens. The more you receive not just what it says. The baptism of fire Well there are 2 baptisms and the baptism of fire. Did I say what it was. Read that again when I read what it says it it says the word itself must be as represented the gold in a oil emptied from the 2 olive trees that stand by the Lord of the whole earth this is the baptism by the Holy Spirit with fire what happened at Pentecost what appeared on these people. Was that they actually see there. Do you think that there's going to be a manifestation of power as God finishes his work the servants of God with their faces lighted up with. Their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration will hasten from place to place with a message from heaven you read in the statements in the spirit prophet where it says Jesus His face was lighted up so people good hearted look at him at times it says the divinity was what. Life being out there humanity invokes as we become instruments of God in receiving the Holy Spirit with power we're going to be partakers of the time of the divine nature and the nature of the life of Christ is going to shine out and people phases are going to actually shine it's going to take something to think it's God's work it's going to take power it's going to take a Manifestation says this will open the soul of unbelievers to conviction when God's people have the Holy Spirit as He wants them to have it it is no take long for people to decide whether they want to be saved or not. Make their decision very rapidly it will be just a short period of time it's all going to be over God's problem is what getting us ready because we've been at it how long. I've been alone. Longer any of you is going to have to greatly accelerate this work then the capacity for receiving the Holy all from the 2 olive trees we can see themselves is by the receiver emptying that holy all out of himself in word and action to supply this then the Cessna's of other souls work precious satisfying work to be constantly receiving and constantly imparting the capacity for receiving is only kept up by imparting now then we're not going to start suddenly at the end of time I just before the loud cry and begin to go and do something a number that before the loud cry goes we have to receive on what is it that precedes the latter rain the early rain the former rain the former rain has never ceased all that still falling sense that it caused and the 3rd angel's message is never gone with the power of the farmer a. And that must go and as soon as that goes then this is going to bring a great commotion on the earth and and Satan is going to be turned loose of the Sunday law is going to be passed and when that is bass and what happens then the loud cries. Now. No I was reading volume 4 page Levon 84 B.C. 1180 there's a very interesting statement on page 118 of the book Sons and Daughters of God I share with you let every news consider the parable of the 10 virgins. All headlamps that is an outward semblance of religion but only 5 of them had that inward piety 5 of them are wanting in the oil of grace the spirit of life in Christ Jesus the Holy Spirit was not abiding in their hearts without the all of grace Of what use was it to bear about a lamp a profession however high may be the profession however high may be the position held by a professor of religion if the all al of grace is wanting he has nothing with which to feed his lamp and it cannot send forth clear shining rays of light. The reason why the degree of the bridegroom delays is because he is long suffering the last word not willing that any should perish but that all should come true penned all the long suffering of our merciful Savior. We are living in altogether too solemn a period of the world's history to be careless and negligent you must pray believe and obey in your own strength you can do nothing but in the grace of Jesus Christ you can employ your powers in such a way as to bring the greatest good to your own soul in the greatest blessing to the Souls of others lay hold of Jesus and you will diligently work the works of Christ and will find the receive the eternal reward now then the last. Message. It's to be a marvelous message. That people who receive the latter rain which is a fullness of the law of the Holy Spirit are going to give the same message in this case going to be given in exactly the same way and this is paid for 15 Christ object lesson that those who wait for the bridegroom coming are to say to the people they hold your god. The last rays of merciful light the last message of mercy to be given to the world is a revelation of His character of love the children of God are to manifest His glory you know what it's going to be to have a message and when and people are going to say with that spirit within them and a bra in them that they are demonstrating on the character of God. They're going to say to the world what. You hold your god. It's right to think about that. If human beings are going to be a demonstration of the character of God just described to us in their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them. The light of the Sun of Righteousness is to shine forth in good works in words of truth and deeds of holiness Now let's go back and review just a little bit on this. Who does the Virgin represent. They represent a remnant of God's people because none of them are hut. None of them are hypocrites. They're not hypocrites they all believe the truth they have a regard for the truth the luck all look alike you can't tell the difference. And the manifestation of the difference between them is not made until one. And the message come what behold the bridegroom cometh choreography and then it's going to it's going to be manifest who has really had the that all elsewhere. In their vessels which is their heart. And they're going to rise and they're going to give a message and this message is going to be the greatest message the most powerful message the world has ever seen. And it's going to make everybody in the world make take a final decision so when this is over every decision has been made. And what is what is they are a representation of. The Holy Spirit which is the grace of Christ. Well I said at the deliverance you see the loud cry of followed by what. One follows a loud cry. A close a probate in the time when when the world close it's probably. And then was found. Then the 7 last legs are going are poured out and at that time the people of God are going to be scattered. Some are going to be in desolate places in groups some are going to be in bondage some are going to be in prison some of them been flavoring and because of the terrible conditions that are in the earth the devil. Here in person. Says is the reason the world is in the condition it is because there are some people who will not worship him by doing. By keeping force their way. And so they the nations all meet together the leaders of the nations meet together and they pass on a destiny creed Well I'm going to pass a son a law that says allow God a path a death decree and they and they set a day. When all of God's people are going to be. Destroyed yet they're going to be there they're going to be executed that day. And this from the time this decree goes forth this is the time of what. The time of Jacob's trouble this is when God's people are going to be praying and then as the midnight when this decree goes into effect at the very midnight when this decree goes into effect what happens. The sun appears at midnight. And it strains the earth is going to turn a half revolution on its axis. Can imagine the last one of the air. Stream sees the flow and everything in nature's turned out of its course this is when all the mountains move I mean if there's a mound are going to be every mountains were removed out of this place is going to be the greatest of even the words ever seen and at that time Jesus I mean God announces a day in our visit is coming and that's when there is a hand appears in the heavens holding the one of the 10 Commandments This is the giving of the law and or the New Covenant the same as the giving in Sinai under the all covered this is the law presented on the new covenant by this in the 12th chapter of Hebrews. Now. At that time. God gives His covenant of peace with those that get the law. So at that time then there is a period of time after that I don't know how long it is but at that time the day in our view is coming is now dead. Well there are 2 sources aren't there. Well have you read in great controversy where. The people who are that Adventist who are not sanctified by the truth become what. You become the greatest enemies says are going to be found the ring leaders in their pockets and they think they have the message but there's a statement in the spirit of Yes it's right in connection with the flood I think it's not your. Volume 2 page 81 it says that in the in the resurrection the 2nd resurrection when the people come up and surround the city you read the spray read the story great controversy probably heard a rise of the Read this and the people come up and surround the city and all arises are inside the last or outside if then that the that the foolish virgins are going to say Lord. But you know me they've come up in the wrong resurrection and they think they're they think they're in the wrong place. And says Jesus looks at them far less because I don't know. That our hearts are not changed. So. We need to search our our hearts and our lives to see that we have the right experience because is there a danger in this that. Now God is not going let anyone they deceive dishonest and since they are but there is a danger that we all think that we have something we don't have. And we can remember that. With many most people salvation is not something they planning the. Loss of eternal life is not something that's a plan and it's something they receive because of neglect.
