I’m Gonna Sit at the Welcome
14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches

\\ “The dear saints have many trials to pass through.
But our light afflictions, which are but for a moment, will work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory--while we look not at the things which are seen, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Ellen Harmon, age 17, received her first vision at the home of a friend (Elizabeth Haines) in south Portland, Maine, in December 1844.
At the time, Ellen was an invalid and did not expect to live long.
Received just weeks after the "great disappointment," this vision provided encouragement to many disheartened adventists.
It pictured the advent believers walking on a narrow pathway high above the world.
The light of the "midnight cry" (the message of Christ's imminent return) lighted the path from behind, while Christ was at the head of the path leading His followers to the Holy City.
Ellen saw some falling off the path through discouragement or disbelief, but so long as the advent people kept their eyes fixed on Jesus they were safe.
I want you to know that in order for you to make heaven your home you have to realize that the devil is not going to make it easy for you!

How the Holy Spirit is not with the church any more.

Organized, unorganized it does not make a difference!
I can’t take the beaucracy of the conference.
God has a people in which all heaven is interested, and they are the one object on earth dear to the heart of God.

When any one arises, either among us or outside of us, who is burdened with a message which declares that the people of God are numbered with Babylon, and claims that the loud cry is a call to come out of her, you may know that he is not bearing the message of truth.
Receive him not, nor bid him God-speed; for God has not spoken by him, neither has he given a message to him, but he has run before he was sent.
It will be found that those who bear false messages will not have a high sense of honor and integrity.
They will deceive the people, and mix up with their error the Testimonies of sister White, and use her name to give influence to their work.
They make such selections from the Testimonies as they think they can twist to support their positions, and place them in a setting of falsehood, so that their error may have weight, and be accepted by the people.
They misinterpret and misapply that which God has given to the church to warn, counsel, reprove, comfort, and encourage those who shall make up the remnant people of God.
For years I have borne my testimony to the effect that when any one arises claiming to have great light, and yet advocating the tearing down of that which the Lord through his human agents has been building up, they are greatly deceived, and are not working along the lines where Christ is working.
Those who assert that the Seventh-day Adventist churches constitute Babylon, or any part of Babylon, might better stay at home.

Didn’t you ever read that Jesus said the wheat and tares would grow together?

He is just a man—dust may let me down he may fail me.
But my example sits on a throne in glory!
And guess what He’s never failed me yet!
He’s the leader of this church!
Enfeebled and defective as it may appear, the church is the one object upon which God bestows in a special sense His supreme regard.
He said watch and pray not watch and complain!
Because the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak!
More short, short, short skirts, gossiping, backbiting, hyprocrites, damable doctrinces more sleeping (spiritually), more husbands straying eyes, temper, more music that appeals to the baser passionsnow, more women and wives with unbridled passion.

No wonder Paul said “I die daily”
17Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
