The Second Coming

from the Testimonies (1909)


 

What Might Have Been

[In regard to the second coming of Christ.]

If every soldier of Christ had done his duty, if every watchman on the walls of Zion had given the trumpet a certain sound, the world might ere this have heard the message of warning. But the work is years behind. While men have slept, Satan has stolen a march upon us.--Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 29.  {ChS 86.2}


 

Let us now take up the work appointed us and proclaim the message that is to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger. If every Seventh-day Adventist had done the work laid upon him [not in sparks of his own kindling], the number of believers would now be much larger than it is. In all the cities of America there would be those who had been led to heed the message to obey the law of God.--Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 25.  {ChS 86.3}


 

Had the purpose of God been carried out by His people in giving to the world the message of mercy, Christ would, ere this, have come to the earth, and the saints would have received their welcome into the city of God.--Testimonies, vol. 6, p. 450.  {ChS 86.4}


Who is waiting for who?
