TIME TO AWAKE
Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.__1 Corinthians 15:34__
We need to be wide-awake that we may distinguish between the true and the false. Movements will be made by religious organizations Which though apparently designed to benefit the world, are not in actor. Dance with God’s mind. In these movements we are to take no part. Many will give them their sympathy, thereby becoming entangled. … Many will agree to half-concealed plans, and will find themselves working on the enemy’s side.
The Lord desires His servants to be wise in regard to the working of the en. Amy, to know when to speak and when to keep silent. … In all that we do or say we are to be guided by the inspired record. “Thus saith the Lord,” is to be our rule of action. That which God forbids we are not to endorse. The instruction of His Word is to be brought into every transaction of life. …
The Lord desires those who take part in His work to be men of spiritual understanding, sensible men who will follow His way and make known His will. Their voices are to be heard amid the din and confusion of unconsecration. Those in the synagogue of Satan will profess to be converted, and unless God’s servants have keen eyesight, they will not discern the working of the power of darkness. (Letter 98, June 19, 1901)
Satan is working in the atmosphere; he is poisoning the atmospheres here we are dependent upon God for our lives—our present and eternal life. And being in the position that we are, we need to be wide awake, wholly devoted, wholly converted, of and wholly consecrated to God. But we seem to sit as though we were paralyzed. Goa I heaven, wake us up! (Selected Messages, Book 2, 52)
