TO RECEIVE THE LIGHT OF TRUTH
“You have given a banner to them that fear you, that it may be displayed because of the truth.” Psalm 60:4.
“The great and wonderful work of the last gospel message is to be carried on now as it has never been before. The world is to receive the light of truth through an evangelizing ministry of the word in our books and periodicals. Our publications are to show that the end of all things is at hand. I am bidden to say to our publishing houses: “Lift up the standard; lift it up higher. Proclaim the third angel’s message, that it may be heard by all the world. Let it be seen that ‘here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.’ Revelation 14:12. Let our literature give the message as a witness to all the world.”
Our workers should now be encouraged to give their first attention to books that deal with the evidence of our faith, books that teach the doctrines of the Bible and that will prepare a people to stand in the trying times before us. Having brought a people to the enlightenment of the truth by prayerful labor in Bible instruction, and through wise use of our publications, we are to teach them to become laborers in word and doctrine. We are to encourage them to scatter the books that deal with Bible subjects – books the teachings of which will prepare a people to stand, having their loins girded with truth and their lamps burning.” –Testimony Treasures, vol. 3, p. 311.
Questions to think about:
Do we need to lift up the standard; to lift it up higher and higher?
What is the best opportunity for me to spread the final message of salvation to those who are glad to receive it?
How to proclaim the third angel’s message, that it may be heard all around the world?
