To Bro. Eli Curtis, New York City.
Dear Bro:--In the Day-Dawn, Vol. 1, Nos. 10 and 11, you kindly invite me to address you a communication. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 02 -PG- 11 -TEXT- The only apology I have to offer for not writing before is, I have not had a clear duty to write till now. You will, I doubt not, excuse me for addressing you so publicly, at this time. I have been much interested in your writings in the Dawn, and extra; and fully agree with you on some points, but on others we widely differ. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 03 -PG- 11 -TEXT- Your Extra is now on the stand before me; and I beg leave to state to you, and the scattered flock of Elohim, what I have seen in vision relative to these things on which you have written. I fully agree with you, that there will be two literal resurrections, 1000 years apart. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 04 -PG- 11 -TEXT- I Also agree with you, that the new heavens, and the new earth, (Rev. 21:1. Isa. 65:17. 2 Pet. 3:13.) will not appear, till after the wicked dead are raised, and destroyed, at the end of the 1000 years. I saw that Satan was "loosed out of his prison," at the end of the 1000 years, just at the time the wicked dead were raised; and that Satan deceived them by making them believe that they could take the holy city from
the saints. The wicked all marched up around the "camp of the saints," with Satan at their head; and when they were ready to make an effort to take the city, the Almighty breathed from his high throne, on the city, a breath of devouring fire, which came down on them, and burnt them up, "root and branch." -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 01 -PG- 12 -TEXT- And I saw, that as Messiah is the vine, and his children the branches: so Satan is the "root", and his children are the "branches;" and at the final destruction of "Gog and Magog," the whole wicked host will be burnt up, "root and branch," and cease to exist. Then will appear the new heaven and the new earth. Then will the saints "build houses," and "plant vineyards." I saw, that all the righteous dead were raised by the voice of the Son of Elohim, at the first resurrection; and all that were raised at the second resurrection, were burnt up, and ceased to exist. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 02 -PG- 12 -TEXT- 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. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 03 -PG- 12 -TEXT- You also think, that Michael stood up, and the time of trouble commenced, in the spring of 1844. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 04 -PG- 12 -TEXT- Yahovah has shown me in vision, that Yahoshua rose up, and shut the door, and entered the Holy of Holies, at the 7th month 1844; but Michael's standing up (Dan. 12:1) to deliver his people, is in the future. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 05 -PG- 12 -TEXT- This, will not take place, until Yahoshua has finished his priestly office in the Heavenly Sanctuary, and lays off his priestly attire, and puts on his most kingly robes, and crown, to ride forth on the cloudy chariot, to "thresh the heathen in anger," and deliver his people. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 06 -PG- 12 -TEXT- Then Yahoshua will have the sharp sickle in his hand, (Rev. 14:14) and then the saints will cry day and night to Yahoshua on the cloud, to thrust in his sharp sickle and reap. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 07 -PG- 12 -TEXT- This, will be the time of Jacob's trouble, (Jer. 30:5-8) out of which, the saints will be delivered by the voice of Elohim. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 08 -PG- 12 -TEXT- I believe the Sanctuary, to be cleansed at the end of the 2300 days, in the New Jerusalem Temple, of which Messiah is a minister. Yahovah shew me in vision, more than one year ago, that Brother Crosier had the true light, on the cleansing of the Sanctuary, &c; and that it was his will, that Brother C. should write out the view which he gave us in the Day-Star, Extra, February 7, 1846. I feel fully authorized by Yahovah, to recommend that Extra, to every saint. -END- -BC- WLF -TI- A Word to the Little Flock
-PR- 09 -PG- 12 -TEXT- I pray that these lines may prove a blessing to you, and all the dear children who may read them. * * E. G. White.
