What's New?
That everyone who thirsteth for the truth may obtain it, these publications are, as a Christian service, provided without charge. They levy but one exaction: the soul's obligation to itself to prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. The only strings attached to this free proffer are the golden strands of Eden and the crimson cords of Calvary - the ties that bind.

Ezekiel, we read, was given a vision of selfish, greedy, and unworthy shepherds. Now the first thing of importance is to ascertain whether these selfish shepherds lived in Ezekiel's day, before his day, or after his day. To find this information, let us read--

In turning from God's word to feed on the writings of uninspired men, the mind becomes dwarfed and cheapened.... The understanding adapts itself to the comprehension of the things with which it is familiar, and in this devotion to finite things it is weakened, its power is contracted, and after a time it becomes unable to expand.

Our subject for this afternoon is found in Daniel, chapters 11 and 12. Chapter 12 contains the "time of trouble," but the time of the "time of trouble" is found in the eleventh chapter of Daniel.

Inspiration, we see, is here urging someone to comfort God's people. They are to be told, not that their warfare will be accomplished, but that their warfare is accomplished; that their iniquity is pardoned; that Jerusalem, the Church, has already received double for all her sins.

Inasmuch as we are often asked what the "D" in the Timely Greetings means in connection with the name "Seventh-day Adventists," we shall endeavor to explain. The "D" stands for Davidian.

Our past studies have shown that all the books of the Bible meet and end in The Revelation (Acts of the Apostles, pg. 585); that The Revelation covers the entire history of mankind.

We all somewhat agree, I know, that this woman of Revelation 12 is symbolical of the Church; that the Dragon is symbolical of Satan; and that the child represents Christ. But inasmuch as we may not agree as to whether the woman is symbolical of the Old Testament church or of the New or of both

This second beast arises, not from the sea, but from the earth. And he makes an image, a likeness of the first beast; that is, he revives the governmental principles of the first beast, the principles in force before the first beast received his deadly wound.

This beast is seen to portray the world in its day as are all the beasts of Daniel and The Revelation seen to portray the world in their day.

When people are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked as are the Laodiceans, and do not know it, then the only title that can be given them is "Deceived," yet ironically the Laodiceans are the people most fearful of being deceived!

Cares riches, pleasures, all are used by Satan in playing the game of life for the human soul. The warning is given, 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him...'

The paradox in this prophetic symbolism is with the fourth chariot, you see: It is hitched to two teams, the grisled and the bay, one team trying to take it in one direction (south), and the other in another direction (to and fro through the earth)!

Here we see that only those who do His commandments have the right to enter the City. When the work of salvation is finished and the people gathered home, they will be those who will still keep the commandments of God

At the outset of our study let us ascertain to what extent this scripture has been fulfilled. In the days of Moses, you remember, the Egyptians had no vision, but the Hebrews did have a vision and a prophet to interpret the vision.

Here is David's own testimony of the fact that he had nothing to regret for being in God's school all his life, that he was anxious to declare God's Truth.

In this verse we are told that the way man should go is not in himself, that he of himself does not know how to direct his steps. Someone else must direct them if he is to go in the right direction. For this very reason God's people are led by a prophet and are preserved by a prophet.

To illustrate the subject of our study this afternoon, let us take for example the book which the Denomination has put out on Daniel and The Revelation, the two most invalued books of the Bible.

In this verse of Scripture God recommends that we cease from man. And the reason given is that man's breath is in his nostrils; because without breath he is but a lump of dirt, and therefore of no account. He is no God.

Here Jesus asks a vital question: Who do men think I am? The answer given Him reveals the people's ignorance, for it seems that they should have known that Christ could not have been John the Baptist

Solomon asked for wisdom, and along with it he got everything a man could desire to have. (1 Kings 3:10-14.) If we were given a choice such as Solomon was given, what would we ask for?

We shall now pray that we let Christ reproduce Himself in us, and that through us He may work to reproduce Himself in others; that we live not unto ourselves; that we remember that the Christian is to be a representative of Christ in all things.

Are the nations from now on to live in two worlds? Man may guess, but he cannot predict. God alone knows the future. And if He does not tell us, then we shall never know ahead of time.

What a gloomy life this would be if there were no history -- if there were no possible way of knowing the past. And still worse would it be if there were no prophecy -- if there were no way of getting an idea what the future holds. But worst of all would it be if there were no light on the present.

There is much talk among us about "righteousness by grace" and "righteousness by faith," also about "the righteousness of Christ." But of what profit will all this talk be to us unless we do something to find out what these really are

The well-rounded education of Christian youth is in three phases: the moral, the sacred, and the secular. These are obtained in three different schools: the home, the church school, and the public school.

In order to know what takes place during the time of the end, we must first know where the time of the end begins and ends. We must know both ends if we are to know what takes place between. Now, to find when "the time of the end" begins, let us turn to--

All people down through the ages that have ever embraced a fresh message from God, were branded as "offshoots" and considered dangerous -- something from which one must beware lest he be shot at, as it were, stabbed, trapped, or something as bad, or hard to tell what.

We as students and gospel teachers have for years dwelt heavily on the signs of Christ's second coming, but not at all on the signs of the Kingdom. As a result of this, Christendom has theoretically merged the signs of the Kingdom with the signs of the second Advent.

True Christianity is a growth. It is plant-like. Christ Himself is represented as a Branch (Isa. 11:1), and His kingdom as a mustard seed (Matt. 13:31, 32) which after it is planted becomes a tree, the greatest of its kind.

Never before was the doctrine of miracles, especially of tongues and of healing, so variously agitated, urged, and practiced as it is throughout Christendom today. Yet never was there greater doubt as to the genuineness of the manifestations.

Though it is the crowning work of our salvation and of the setting up of the kingdom of Christ upon earth, yet the "investigative judgment" is one of the least understood and most mystified and confused Bible subjects of the age.

In 1934 while God's Headquarters was in L.A. Calif., Bro. V.T. Houteff printed Tract No. 3 "THE HARVEST." After it moved to Waco Texas in 1935, he reprinted Tract No. 3 in 1942, and renamed it "THE JUDGMENT AND THE HARVEST" but the Bible Numerology, however, was left out, because other material had been added.

Dear "Ammi" and "Ruhamah":

With deepest anxiety I am writing to implore you to make overtures to our estranged "Mother," that we may effect her reconciliation, save our Father from His inconsolable grief, and regladden our now unhappy home.

Ever since John recorded this imposing symbolization, church history has repeatedly throughout her pages had to make the entry that every attempt made to unlock its mystery has but resulted the more in barricading it with mysticism and confusion. It is necessary, therefore, in clearing the mysticism, first of all to find THE REASON FOR THE CONFUSION. The very fact that nineteen centuries of prying at the subject to open it up has only made it the more impenetrable, is the strongest possible evidence that God controls the Scriptures and reveals Them only at the divinely appointed time.

The purpose of this tract being to introduce and to deliver free of charge to every honest soul, even to the poorest and to the remotest one of earth, the superabundant product par excellence of the great Universal Dairy, it is therefore necessary to remove from the way of its recipients

Believing that you would like to have authentic knowledge of the crisis now confronting our beloved S.D.A. church, we as brethren of like precious faith come to you in the name of Him Who, though altogether holy, did eat with publicans and sinners, and Who, though the Incarnation of holiness, never by word or by action said: "Stand by thyself come not near to Me; for I am holier than thou" (Isa. 65:5), but ever pleaded: "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come." Isa. 55:1.

Though a number of times we have conclusively cleared the questions as to (1) whether Jesus, in order to fulfill the "sign of Jonah," was "three days and three nights" in the grave, or (2) whether the sign was fulfilled in some other way and (3) whether He was crucified on Friday, on Thursday, or on Wednesday, there still seem to be some points which are not clear to all, first of which underlies the question: Was Christ Crucified on the Day the Leaven Was Put Out of the Houses -- On the Fourteenth Day?

Is it not a fact that the Bible translators changed the Creator's original Hebrew names (Elohim, Jehovah, El, Elahh, Elowahh, Bethel, and Tsur) to the names of Baal (God, Lord, etc.)? And if the Creator's names actually are Elohim, Yahovah et al., and if God, Lord, etc., are the names of the pagan gods, why, then, do we call Him by the latter?

For over nineteen centuries the institution of Christmas, the popular gift-exchanging day, has been acclaimed throughout Christendom as one of God's good and perfect gifts. And this sentiment has been glorified and perpetuated in the face of the widely-known facts that Christmas is not the birthday of Christ

What success would we have in canvassing our books, and what good would they do if prospective buyers and readers would first consult the ministers of their own denomination and would take their counsel? We all know the answer -- There would be no books sold and no books read.

Never did the clouds of war, so strange and so dark hang in an angry thunder-head over the world, and never did the world see itself as it does today. Everywhere, -- in government, in industry, in halls of learning, in churches, in homes, on the streets -- in every walk of life, the question uppermost is, Whitherbound mankind?
