JUDGED BY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND TRUTH

 

For He is coining, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.

__Psalm 96:13__

The time will come when many will be deprived of the written Word. But if this Word is printed in the memory, no one can take it from us; and it is a talisman that will meet the worst forms of error and evil. …

 

We are now to make diligent work for eternity. Only for a very short time longer will the Lord bear with the gross wickedness that fills the world. Oh, how suddenly will the end come, surprising the world in their increasing iniquity. …

For the past fifty years I have been receiving intelligence regarding heavenly things. …

We are very sorry to read the article written by Elder Tenney … on the Sanctuary question. The enemy has obtained the victory over one minister. If this minister had remained away from the seducing influences that Satan is exerting at the present time in Battle Creek, he might yet be standing on vantage ground. …

The Sanctuary question is the foundation of our faith. …

There is a sanctuary, and in that sanctuary is the ark, and in the ark are the tables of stone, [on] which is written the law spoken from Sinai amidst scenes of awful grandeur. These tables of stone are in the heavens, and they will be brought forth in that day when the judgment shall sit and the books shall be opened, and men shall be judged according to the things written in the books. They will be judged by the law written by the finger of God, and given to Moses to be deposited in the ark. A record is kept of the deeds of all men, and according to his works will every man receive sentence, whether they be good, or whether they be evil. (Manuscript 20, February Z 1906)

Reflection:

What is the test of true religion? Knowing and doing the word of God, in accordance with every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Manuscript 20, February 7, 1906)
