BUILD ON THE ROCK
Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, 1 will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock.__Matthew 7:24__
I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, thrust in thy sickle and reap; for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
“And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle in the earth, and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in the sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” …
When the storm of God’s wrath breaks upon the world, it will be a terrible revelation for souls to find that their house is being swept away, because it is built upon the sand. (Manuscript 139, October 21, 1898)
We as Christians will have trials and temptations, but if we build our houses (our characters) on the Rock, which is Christ, we will not fail.
