Prepare for the Last Days

IN HIS HANDS

He was driven from the sons of men, his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild donkeys. They fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till he knew that the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men, and appoints over it whomever He chooses. __Daniel 5:21__

Not one cloud has fallen upon the church that God has not prepared for; not one opposing force has risen to counterwork the work of God but He has foreseen. All has taken place as He has predicted through His prophet; He has not left His church in darkness, forsaken, but has traced in prophetic dec. larations what would occur, and through His providence, acting in its appointed place in the world’s history, He has brought about that which His Holy Spirit in. spired the prophets to foretell. All His purposes will be fulfilled and established.

[God’s] law is linked with His throne, and satanic agencies combined with human agencies cannot destroy it. Truth is inspired and guarded by God; it will live, and will succeed, although it may appear at times to be overshadowed. The gospel of Christ is the law exemplified in character. The deceptions practiced against it, every device for vindicating falsehood, every error forged by satan-ic agencies, will eventually be eternally broken, and the triumph of truth will be like the appearing of the sun at noon day. The Sun of Righteousness shall shine forth with healing in His wings, and the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.

All that God has in prophetic history specified to be fulfilled in the past has been, and all that is yet to come in its order will be. Daniel, God’s prophet, stands in his place. John stands in his place. In the Revelation the Lion of the tribe of Judah has opened to the students of prophecy the book of Daniel, and thus is Daniel standing in his place. (Manuscript 32, December 6, 1896)

Reflection:

We must be clothed with humility as with a garment. We must act our part. Let us do it here and now. Let us have the power of God manifested among us. it us have the shout of the King in the camp. When we have humbled our hearts before God, his grace will be poured upon us, and we shall bear a clean-cut testimony that will its way to the hearts of men. (The Review and Herald, June 18, 1889)
