WE ARE ENGAGED IN A GREAT WORK
“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant to your servants, that with all boldness they may speak your word.” Acts 4:29.
The Lord’s people are seeking to heal the breach which has been made in the law of God.
This disturbs the enemies of our faith, and every means is employed to hinder us in our work. And yet the broken-down wall is going steadily up. The world is being warned, and many are turning away from trampling under their feet the Sabbath of Jehovah. God is in this work, and man cannot stop it. Angels of God are working with the efforts of His faithful servants, and the work steadily advances. We shall meet with opposition of every description, as did the builders of the walls of Jerusalem; but if we watch and pray and work, as they did, God will fight our battles for us and give us precious victories. …
We shall receive the most fierce opposition from the Adventists who oppose the law of God. But, like the builders of the walls of Jerusalem, we should not be diverted and hindered from our work by reports, by messengers desiring discussion or controversy, or by intimidating threats, the publication of falsehoods, or any of the devices that Satan may instigate. Our answer should be: We are engaged in a great work, and we cannot come down. We shall sometimes be perplexed to know what course we should pursue to preserve the honor of the cause of God and to vindicate His truth. –Testimony Treasures, vol. 1, pp. 432, 433.
Questions to think about:
Do we want to be like the builders of the walls of Jerusalem?
Do we cooperate together with God’s angels as God’s faithful servants to prompt our Lord’s work?
Can we sometimes become perplexed to know what course we should pursue to preserve the honour of the cause of God and to vindicate His truth? Do we trust to our Lord’s guidance?
