"The duty and delight of all service is to uplift Christ before the people.  This is the end of all true labor.  Let Christ appear, let self be hidden behind Him."   Ellen G. White, Testimonies, volume 9, p. 147
        
Isaiah 11:1

And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

Your Redemption Draws Near

"As I hear of the terrible calamities that from week to week are taking place, I ask myself: What do these things mean? The most awful disasters are following one another in quick succession. How frequently we hear of earthquakes and tornadoes, of destruction by fire and flood, with great loss of life and property! Apparently these calamities are capricious outbreaks of seemingly disorganized, unregulated forces, but in them God’s purpose may be read. They are one of the means by which  He seeks to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger.  The coming of Christ is nearer than when we first believed. The great controversy is nearing its end. The judgments of God are in the land. They speak in solemn warning, saying: “Be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:44.   But there are many, many in our churches who know little of the real meaning of the truth for this time. I appeal to them not to disregard the fulfilling of the signs of the times, which says so plainly that the end is near. Oh, how many who have not sought their souls’ salvation will soon make the bitter lamentation: “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved”!  We are living in the closing scenes of this earth’s history.

"Prophecy is fast fulfilling. The hours of probation are fast passing. We have no time—not a moment—to lose. Let us not be found sleeping on guard. Let no one say in his heart or by his works: “My Lord delayeth His coming.” Let the message of Christ’s soon return sound forth in earnest words of warning. Let us persuade men and women everywhere to repent and flee from the wrath to come. Let us arouse them to immediate preparation, for we little know what is before us. Let ministers and lay members go forth into the ripening fields to tell the unconcerned and indifferent to seek the Lord while He may be found. The workers will find their harvest wherever they proclaim the forgotten truths of the Bible. They will find those who will accept the truth and will devote their lives to winning souls to Christ.
 
"The Lord is soon to come, and we must be prepared to meet Him in peace. Let us be determined to do all in our power to impart light to those around us. We are not to be sad, but cheerful, and we are to keep the Lord Jesus ever before us. He is soon coming, and we must be ready and waiting for His appearing. Oh, how glorious it will be to see Him and be welcomed as His redeemed ones! Long have we waited, but our hope is not to grow dim. If we can but see the King in His beauty we shall be forever blessed. I feel as if I must cry aloud: “Homeward bound!” We are nearing the time when Christ will come in power and great glory to take His ransomed ones to their eternal home.  In the great closing work we shall meet with perplexities that we know not how to deal with; but let us not forget that the three great powers of heaven are working, that a divine hand is on the wheel, and that God will bring His promises to pass. He will gather from the world a people who will serve Him in righteousness."  E. G. White, CCh  355, 356 


Proclaiming The Second Coming of Christ

The 1844 Movement - The Great Second Advent Awakening

An Eyewitness Account

“When the warning voice of the first angel was first heard, it found the nominal churches asleep upon the subject of the second advent, dreaming of the world’s conversion.  But the truth was clear, and, in the hands of devoted men, was powerful.  Every where the message was proclaimed it produced general conviction.  The Scriptures were searched as never before; a great revolution in the religious belief took place in a few short years; and at least fifty thousand in American alone, became decided believers.   The prophetic times in connection with that message served their purpose, and terminated with that message.   The first angel was a time message.  The second and third are not time messages.  That aroused men in view of the fast approaching Judgment.  These tell them what they must do to be saved.  …

“The title page of this work calls attention to the great Advent movement as illustrated by the three angels of Rev. xiv.  The truth and work of God in this movement, commencing with the labors of William Miller, and reaching to the close of probation, is illustrated by these three angels.   The first was a time message, and related to the Judgment.  The second described the condition of corrupted Christianity.  The third is a solemn warning relative to what men may not do, and what they must do, in order to be saved at the coming of Christ.  These angels illustrated the THREE GREAT DIVISIONS of the genuine movement. …

“I repeat it.  THE THREE MESSAGES SYMBOLIZE THE THREE PARTS OF THE GENUINE MOVEMENT. …

“Again, the sanctuary was the heart of the typical system.  It was the repository of the ark of God, in which ark His law was deposited.  By this law the people had the knowledge of sin.  It was also the place where they, in figure, found pardon for their sins through the offerings there made.  This entire system, with it great center, the sanctuary, was but a shadow of the realities of the present system of salvation.  The shadow was on earth; THE REALITY IS IN HEAVEN.  The facts are stated by the apostle in few words: “We have such an High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.” Heb. Viii 1,2.  The sanctuary of the new covenant, which is in Heaven, is the great heart of the plan of redemption.  There Christ offers His blood for the sins of men.  In the real tabernacle there are two holies, if there were two in the shadow.   In the holiest is the ark of God, containing the ten precepts of His law, if they were in the holiest of the shadow.   Here is a theme worthy the attention of all Christians.  And it is one in which they should feel the deepest interest, as each has a case of eternal consequences pending there.

"The work of cleansing this sanctuary, at the close of the 2300 days, is a subject which should materially interest all Adventists.   It pertains to the confession, pardon, and blotting out of sins.  A correct and intelligent faith sees the adorable Redeemer in the most holy of the true tabernacle, offering His blood before the mercy seat for the sins of those who have broken the law of God beneath it in the ark.   True faith reaches within the second veil, where Jesus and the ark of God are seen.  There, by the law we have the knowledge of sin, and through the blood of Jesus we may find pardon, and share eternal redemption.  The subject of the cleansing of this sanctuary, then, is one of the most thrilling interest, especially to all Adventists.  It is the key to the great Advent movement, making all plain.   Without it, the movement is in explicable."

    The Sanctuary in Heaven

    "Here is revealed the sanctuary of the new covenant. The sanctuary of the first covenant was pitched by man, built by Moses; this is pitched by the Lord, not by man. In that sanctuary the earthly priests performed their service; in this, Christ, our great High Priest, ministers at God's right hand. One sanctuary was on earth, the other is in heaven." {GC 413.2} (Click on picture for more)

    Revelation 14 Messages

    “All classes of second advent believers agree , that the angel brought to view in the 6th and 7th verses of this chapter represents the advent message to the church and world. If this is true, then all FIVE of the angels brought to view in this chapter, represents FIVE DISTINCT MESSAGES, prior to the advent, or we are left without a rule to interpret this chapter.” Pages 10, 11
