As I saw what we must be in order to inherit glory,
and then saw how much Jesus had suffered to obtain
for us so rich an inheritance, I prayed that we might
be baptized into Christ's sufferings, that we might not
shrink at trials, but bear them with patience and joy,
knowing what Jesus had suffered that we through His
poverty and sufferings might be made rich. Said the
angel, "Deny self; ye must step fast." Some of us
have had time to get the truth and to advance step by
step, and every step we have taken has given us
strength to take the next. But now time is almost
finished, and what we have been years learning, they
will have to learn in a few months. They will also
have much to unlearn and much to learn again.
Those who would not receive the mark of the beast
and his image when the decree goes forth, must have
decision now to say, Nay, we will not regard the
institution of the beast.
