IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.__Galatians 1:8__
In the future great watchfulness will be needed. There is to be among God, people no spiritual stupidity. Evil spirits are actively engaged in seeking to control the minds of human beings. Men are binding up in bundles, ready to be consumed by the fires of the last days. Those who discard Christ and His righteousness will accept the sophistry that is flooding the world. Christians are to be sober and vigilant, steadfastly resisting their adversary the devil, who is going about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Men under the influence of evil spirits will work miracles. They will make people sick by casting their spell upon them and will then remove the spell, lead. ing others to say that those who were sick have been miraculously healed. This Satan has done again and again. …
Satan comes down as a beautiful angel and presents lovely pictures before the eyes of those who have so perverted their ways before God that they do not see what they are or know what they need. The enemy has come down with great power, to work with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish God calls for repentance and reconversion. (Letter 259, November 23, 1903)
Those who are determined to exalt themselves must be blotted out. … [God’s people] will come to the fountain … and apply the cleansing blood of Christ to their poor, sin-sick souls. God grant that they may make no delay in securing the advantages that He has prepared for all who love Him and keep His commandments. (Letter 259, November 23, 1903)
