MUCH MORE WORK TO DO

He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”

__Matthew 9:37__

The message that I am bidden to bear to our people at this time is, Work the cities without delay, for time is short. The Lord has kept this work before us for the last twenty years or more. A little has been done in a few places, but much more might be done. I am carrying a burden day and night, because so little is being accomplished to warn the inhabitants of our great centers of population of the judgments that will fall upon the transgressors of God’s law. …

The enemy would be rejoiced to see the grand, saving truth for this time con-fined to a few places. He is not inactive. He is instilling into the minds of men his deceptive theories to blind their eyes and confuse their understanding, that the saving truth may not be brought to their knowledge. Soon the Sunday laws will be enforced, and men in positions of trust will be embittered against the little handful of God’s commandment-keeping people.

Satan seems to have been permitted to gain many points of advantage. But the Lord will bring men of understanding from the various churches, to combat the enforcement of a law that the first day of the week shall be honored as a day when no business shall be transacted.(Letter 168, December 1, 1909)

Reflection:

God calls for workers. Men of clear judgment and humble hearts are needed. Christ’s sorrowful lamentation is, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labor¬ers are few.” (Letter 104, June 3, 1903)
