COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM

 

My people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. __Isaiah 5:13__

The same deceptive agency that seduced the angels in heaven is working in like manner upon human minds today. By means of his seducing statements, he won the confidence of many of the angels, and there was a great war in heaven. Michael and His angels fought against Satan and his deceived followers. …

Some who have received warning and instruction from God had deliberately turned from the messages sent to them. They have as it were walked blindfolded into Satan’s prepared snares. Satan is playing the game of life for their souls. And some who might be in a position to help these ensnared souls have themselves become ensnared as captives to the archdeceiver. ..,

We must do all we possibly can for these deceived ones. Their minds must be freed from the delusions of the enemy; and if we fail in our efforts to save these erring ones, we must “come out from among them” and be separate. ..

The time has come for the enlargement and growth of God’s people. For years the backward tendencies of many have greatly hindered the work of God.

Now, just now, the Lord’s people are to show their loyalty. The time has come when the Lord would have all who will honor Him take their stand firmly on the side of truth and righteousness. No longer are we to be a mixed multitude. Those who profess to be followers of God’s Word must be straightforward, pure, and holy. (Manuscript 106, November 20, 1905)

Reflection:

Had Israel heeded the messages of the prophets, they would have been Spared the humiliation that followed. It was because they had persisted in turning aside from His law that God was compelled to let them go into captivity. (Prophets and Kings, 297)
