And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain: yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
How is it that the City of My Joy was not spared?
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the Great Prince which standeth for the children of thy people and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
... and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared Yahovah, and that reverenced His Name.
Letter from Sister Harmon Falmouth Mass., Feb., 15, 1846
About four months since, I had a vision of events, all in the future. And I saw the time of trouble, such as never was,--Yahoshua told me it was the time of Jacob's trouble, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of Elohim. Just before we entered it, we all received the seal of the living Elohim. Then I saw the four Angels cease to hold the four winds. And I saw famine, pestilence and sword, nation rose against nation, and the whole world was in confusion. Then we cried to Elohim for deliverance day and night till we began to hear the bells on Yahoshua's garment. And I saw Yahoshua rise up in the Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of bells, and knew our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of Elohim which shook the heavens and earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Yahoshuas' coming. Then the saints were free, united and full of the glory of Elohim, for he had turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Yahoshua stood and he laid off his priestly garment and put on his kingly robe, took his place on the cloud which carried him to the east where it first appeared to the saints on earth, a small black cloud, which was the sign of the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the east which took a number of days, the Synagogue of Satan worshiped at the saints feet.

At our happy, holy state the wicked were enraged, and
would rush violently up to lay hands on us to thrust us in prison,
when we would stretch forth the hand in the name of "Yahovah",
and the wicked would fall helpless to the ground. Then it was
that the synagogue of Satan knew that Elohim had loved us who
could wash one another's feet and salute the holy brethren with
a holy kiss, and they worshiped at our feet.
... for thou hast a little strength,
and hast kept my word; and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will
make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and
are not; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy
feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept
the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of
temptation, which will come upon all the world, to try them that
dwell upon the earth.
-TI- A Word to the Little Flock
You think, that those who worship before the saint's feet,
(Rev. 3:9), will at last be saved. Here I must differ with
you; for Elohim shew me that this class were professed Adventists,
who had fallen away, and "crucified to themselves the
Son of Elohim afresh, and put him to an open shame." And in
the "hour of temptation," which is yet to come, to show out
every one's true character, they will know that they are forever
lost; and overwhelmed with anguish of spirit, they will bow
at the saint's feet.

Then I was shown a company who were howling in
agony. On their garments was written in large
characters. "Thou art weighed in the balance, and found
wanting." I asked who this company were. The
angel said, "These are they who have once kept the
Sabbath, and have given it up." I heard them cry
with a loud voice, "We have believed in Thy coming,
and taught it with energy." And while they were
speaking, their eyes would fall upon their garments
and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud.
I saw that they had drunk of the deep waters, and
fouled the residue with their feet,--trodden the
Sabbath underfoot,--and that was why they were weighed
in the balance and found wanting.

I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds
until Yahoshuas' work was done in the sanctuary, and then
will come the seven last plagues. These plagues
enraged the wicked against the righteous; they thought
that we had brought the judgments of God upon them,
and that if they could rid the earth of us, the plagues
would then be stayed. A decree went forth to slay
the saints, which caused them to cry day and night for
deliverance. This was the time of Jacob's trouble.
Then all the saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and
were delivered by the voice of Elohim. The 144,000
triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory
of Elohim. Then I was shown a company who were howling
in agony. On their garments was written in large
characters, "Thou art weighed in the balance, and
found wanting." I asked who this company were. The
angel said, "These are they who have once kept the
Sabbath and have given it up." I heard them cry with
a loud voice, "We have believed in Thy coming, and
taught it with energy." And while they were speaking,
their eyes would fall upon their garments and see the
writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw that
they had drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the
residue with their feet--trodden the Sabbath underfoot--
and that was why they were weighed in the balance
and found wanting.
