As God has shown me in holy vision the travels of the Advent people to
the Holy City, and the rich reward to be given those who wait the return of
their Lord from the wedding, it may be my duty to give you a short sketch of
what God has revealed to me. The dear saints have got many trials to pass
through. But our light afflictions, which are but for a moment, worketh for
us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory--while we look not at the
things which are seen, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the
things which are not seen are eternal. I have tried to bring back a good
report, and a few grapes from the heavenly Canaan, for which many would stone
me, as the congregation bade stone Caleb and Joshua for their report, (Num.
14:10.) But I declare to you, my brethren and sisters in the Lord, it is a
goodly land, and we are well able to go up and possess it.

While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I
seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to
look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them--when a
voice said to me, "Look again, and look a little higher." At this I raised my
eyes and saw a straight and narrow path, cast up high above the world. On
this path the Advent people were travelling to the City, which was at the
farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the
first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. This
light shone all along the path and gave light for their feet so they might
not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before
them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and
they said the City was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it
before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm,
and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and
they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said
that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went
out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their
eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the
dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them to get on the
path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had
rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we
heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of
Jesus' coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the
voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God
spake the time, he poured on us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light
up and shine with the glory of God as Moses did when he came down from Mount
Sinai, (Ex. 34:30-34).

By this time the 144,000 were all sealed and perfectly united. On their
foreheads was written, God, New Jerusalem, and a glorious Star containing
Jesus' new name. At our happy, holy state the wicked were enraged, and would
rush violently up to lay hands on us to thrust us in prison, when we would
stretch forth the hand in the name of the Lord, and the wicked would fall
helpless to the ground. Then it was that the synagogue of Satan knew that God
had loved us who could wash one another's feet, and salute the holy brethren
with a holy kiss, and they worshipped at our feet. Soon our eyes were drawn
to the East, for a small black cloud had appeared about half as large as a
man's hand, which we all knew was the Sign of the Son of Man. We all in
solemn silence gazed on the cloud as it drew nearer, lighter, and brighter,
glorious, and still more glorious, till it was a great white cloud. The
bottom appeared like fire, a rainbow was over it, around the cloud were ten
thousand angels singing a most lovely song. And on it sat the Son of Man, on
his head were crowns, his hair was white and curly and lay on his shoulders.
His feet had the appearance of fire, in his right hand was a sharp sickle, in
his left a silver trumpet. His eyes were as a flame of fire, which searched
his children through and through. Then all faces gathered paleness, and those
that God had rejected gathered blackness. Then we all cried out, who shall be
able to stand? Is my robe spotless? Then the angels ceased to sing, and there
was sometime of awful silence, when Jesus spoke. Those who have clean hands
and a pure heart shall be able to stand, my grace is sufficient for you. At
this, our faces lighted up, and joy filled every heart. And the angels struck
a note higher and sung again while the cloud drew still nearer the earth.
Then Jesus' silver trumpet sounded, as he descended on the cloud, wrapped in
flames of fire. He gazed on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raised
his eyes and hands to heaven and cried out, Awake! Awake! Awake! ye that
sleep in the dust, and arise. Then there was a mighty earthquake. The graves
opened, and the dead came up clothed with immortality. The 144,000 shouted,
Hallelujah! as they recognized their friends who had been torn from them by
death, and in the same moment we were changed and caught up together with
them to meet the Lord in the air. We all entered the cloud together, and were
seven days ascending to the sea of glass, when Jesus brought along the crowns
and with his own right hand placed them on our heads. He gave us harps of
gold and palms of victory. Here on the sea of glass the 144,000 stood in a
perfect square. Some of them had very bright crowns, others not so bright.
Some crowns appeared heavy with stars, while others had but few. All were
perfectly satisfied with their crowns. And they were all clothed with a
glorious white mantle from their shoulders to their feet. Angels were all
about us as we marched over the sea of glass to the gate of the City. Jesus
raised his mighty glorious arm, laid hold of the gate and swung it back on
its golden hinges, and said to us, You have washed your robes in my blood,
stood stiffly for my truth, enter in. We all marched in and felt we had a
perfect right in the City. Here we saw the tree of life, and the throne of
God. Out of the throne came a pure river of water, and on either side of the
river was the tree of life. On one side of the river was a trunk of a tree
and a trunk on the other side of the river, both of pure transparent gold.

At first I thought I saw two trees. I looked again and saw they were
united at the top in one tree. So it was the tree of life, on either side of
the river of life; its branches bowed to the place where we stood; and the
fruit was glorious, which looked like gold mixed with silver. We all went
under the tree, and sat down to look at the glory of the place, when brothers
Fitch and Stockman, who had preached the gospel of the kingdom, and whom God
had laid in the grave to save them, came up to us and asked us what we had
passed through while they were sleeping. We tried to call up our greatest
trials, but they looked so small compared with the far more exceeding and
eternal weight of glory that surrounded us, that we could not speak them out,
and we all cried out Hallelujah, heaven is cheap enough, and we touched our
glorious harps and made heaven's arches ring. And as we were gazing at the
glories of the place our eyes were attracted upwards to something that had
the appearance of silver. I asked Jesus to let me see what was within there.
In a moment we were winging our way upward, and entering in; here we saw good
old father Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Noah, Daniel, and many like them. And I saw
a veil with a heavy fringe of silver and gold as a border on the bottom; it
was very beautiful. I asked Jesus what was within the veil. He raised it with
his own right arm, and bade me take heed. I saw there a glorious ark,
overlaid with pure gold, and it had a glorious border, resembling Jesus'
crowns; on it were two bright angels--their wings were spread over the ark as
they sat on each end, with their faces turned towards each other and looking
downward. In the ark, beneath where the angels wings were spread, was a
golden pot of Manna, of a yellowish cast; and I saw a rod, which Jesus said
was Aarons; I saw it bud, blossom and bear fruit. And I saw two long golden
rods, on which hung silver wires, and on the wires most glorious grapes; one
cluster was more than a man here could carry. And I saw Jesus step up and
take off the manna, almonds, grapes and pomegranates, and bear them down to
the city, and place them on the supper table. I stepped up to see how much
was taken away, and there was just as much left; and we shouted
Hallelujah--Amen. We all descended from this place down into the city, and
with Jesus at our head we all descended from the city down to this earth, on
a great and mighty mountain, which could not bear Jesus up, and it parted
asunder, and there was a mighty plain. Then we looked up and saw the great
city, with twelve foundations, twelve gates, three on each side, and an angel
at each gate, and all cried out, "the city, the great city, it's coming, its
coming down from God, out of heaven;" and it came and settled on the place
where we stood. Then we began to look at the glorious things outside of the
city. There I saw most glorious houses, that had the appearance of silver,
supported by four pillars, set with pearls, most glorious to behold, which
were to be inhabited by the saints; in them was a golden shelf; I saw many of
the saints go into the houses, take off their glittering crowns and lay them
on the shelf, then go out into the field by the houses to do something with
the earth; not as we have to do with the earth here; no, no. A glorious light
shone all about their heads, and they were continually shouting and offering
praises to God.

And I saw another field full of all kind of flowers, and as I plucked
them, I cried out, well they will never fade. Next I saw a field of tall
grass, most glorious to behold; it was living green, and had a reflection of
silver and gold, as it waved proudly to the glory of King Jesus. Then we
entered a field full of all kinds of beasts--the lion, the lamb, the leopard
and the wolf, altogether in perfect union; we passed through the midst of
them, and they followed on peaceably after. Then we entered a wood, not like
the dark woods we have here, no, no; but light, and all over glorious; the
branches of the trees waved to and fro, and we all cried out, " we will dwell
safely in the wilderness and sleep in this woods." We passed through the
wood, for we were on our way to Mount Zion. As we were travelling along, we
met a company who were also gazing at the glories of the place. I noticed red
as a border on their garments; their crowns were brilliant; their robes were
pure white. As we greeted them, I asked Jesus who they were? He said they
were martyrs that had been slain for him. With them was an innumerable
company of little ones; they had a hem of red on their garments also. Mount
Zion was just before us, and on the Mount sat a glorious temple, and about it
were seven other mountains, on which grew roses and lilies, and I saw the
little ones climb, or if they chose, use their little wings and fly to the
top of the mountains, and pluck the never fading flowers. There were all
kinds of trees around the temple to beautify the place; the box, the pine,
the fir, the oil, the myrtle, the pomegranate, and the fig tree bowed down
with the weight of its timely figs, that made the place look all over
glorious. And as we were about to enter the holy temple, Jesus raised his
lovely voice and said, only the 144,000 enter this place, and we shouted

Well, bless the Lord, dear brethren and sisters, it is an extra meeting
for those who have the seal of the living God. This temple was supported by
seven pillars, all of transparent gold, set with pearls most glorious. The
glorious things I saw there, I cannot begin to describe. O, that I could talk
in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the
upper world; but, if faithful, you soon will know all about it. I saw there
the tables of stone in which the names of the 144,000, were engraved in
letters of gold; after we had beheld the glory of the temple, we went out.
Then Jesus left us, and went to the city; soon, we heard his lovely voice
again, saying--"Come my people, you have come out of great tribulation, and
done my will; suffered for me; come in to supper, for I will gird myself, and
serve you. "We shouted Hallelujah, glory; and entered into the city; and I
saw a table of pure silver, it was many miles in length, yet our eyes could
extend over it. And I saw the fruit of the tree of life, the manna, almonds,
figs, pomegranates, grapes, and many other kinds of fruit. We all reclined at
the table. I asked Jesus to let me eat of the fruit. He said, not now. Those
who eat of the fruit of this land, go back to earth no more. But in a little
while, if faithful, you shall both eat of the fruit of the tree of life, and
drink of the water of the fountain; and he said, you must go back to the
earth again, and relate to others, what I have revealed to you. Then an angel
bore me gently down to this dark world. Sometimes I think I cannot stay here
any longer, all things of earth look so dreary--I feel very lonely here, for
I have seen a better land. O, that I had wings like a dove, then would I fly
away, and be at rest.

In February, 1845, I had a vision of events commencing with the Midnight
Cry. I saw a throne and on it sat the Father and the Son. I gazed on Jesus'
countenance and admired his lovely person. The Father's person I could not
behold, for a cloud of glorious light covered him. I asked Jesus if his
Father had a form like himself. He said he had, but I could not behold it,
for said he if you should once behold the glory of his person you would cease
to exist. Before the throne I saw the Advent people, the church, and the
world. I saw a company, bowed down before the throne, deeply interested,
while the most of them stood up disinterested and careless. Those who were
bowed before the throne would offer up their prayers and look to Jesus; then
he would look to his Father, and appeared to be pleading with Him. A light
would come from the Father to the Son, and from the Son to the praying
company. Then I saw an exceeding bright light come from the Father to the
Son, and from the Son it waved over the people before the throne. But few
would receive this great light; many came out from under it and immediately
resisted it; others were careless and did not cherish the light, and it moved
off from them; some cherished it, and went and bowed down with the little
praying company. This company all received the light, and rejoiced in it, as
their countenances shone with its glory. And I saw the Father rise from the
throne, and in a flaming Chariot go into the Holy of Holies, within the veil,
and did sit. There I saw thrones that I had never seen before. Then Jesus
rose up from the throne, and the most of those who were bowed down arose with
Him; and I did not see one ray of light pass from Jesus to the careless
multitude after he arose, and they were left in perfect darkness. Those who
rose up when Jesus did, kept their eyes fixed on Him as He left the throne
and led them out a little way. -- Then He raised His right arm and we heard
his lovely voice saying, "Wait here--I am going to my Father to receive the
Kingdom; keep your garments spotless, and in a little while I will return
from the wedding and receive you to myself." And I saw a cloudy chariot, with
wheels like flaming fire, and Angels were all around it as it came where
Jesus was. He stepped into the chariot and was borne to the Holiest where the
Father sat. There I beheld Jesus, as He was standing before the Father, a
great High Priest. On the hem of His garment was a bell and pomegranate. Then
Jesus shew me the difference between faith and feeling. And I saw those who
rose up with Jesus send up their faith to Him in the Holiest, and pray--my
Father give us thy Spirit. Then Jesus would breathe upon them the Holy Ghost.
In the breath was light, power, and much love, joy and peace. Then I turned
to look at the company who were still bowed before the throne; they did not
know that Jesus had left it.--Satan appeared to be by the throne, trying to
carry on the work of God; I saw them look up to the throne and pray, my
Father give us thy Spirit; then Satan would breathe upon them an unholy
influence; in it there was light and much power, but no sweet love, joy and
peace. Satan's object was to keep them deceived, and to draw back and deceive
God's children. I saw one after another leave the company who were praying to
Jesus in the Holiest, and go and join those before the throne, and they at
once received the unholy influence of Satan.

About four months since I had a vision of events all in the future. I
saw the time of trouble, such as never was. Jesus told me it was the time of
Jacob's trouble, and that we should be delivered out of it by the voice of
God. Then I saw the four angels cease to hold the four winds. And I saw
famine, pestilence and sword--nation rose against nation, and the whole world
was in confusion. Then we cried to God day and night for deliverance, until
we began to hear the bells on Jesus' garment. And I saw Jesus rise up in the
Holiest, and as he came out we heard the tinkling of the bells and knew that
our High Priest was coming out. Then we heard the voice of God which shook
the heavens and the earth, and gave the 144,000 the day and hour of Jesus
coming. Then the saints were free, united, and full of the glory of God, for
he has turned their captivity. And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus'
stood. Then Jesus laid off his priestly garment and put on his Kingly robe,
and took his place on the cloud which carried him to the East, where it first
appeared to the saints on earth--a small black cloud which was the sign of
the Son of Man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East,
which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saint's
Ellen G. Harmon.

flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men

At the commencement of the Holy Sabbath, (Jan. 5,) we engaged in prayer
with Bro. Belden's family at Rocky Hill, Ct., and the Holy Ghost fell upon
us. I was taken off in Vision to the most holy place, where I saw Jesus still
interceding for Israel. On the bottom of his garment was a bell and a
pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate. Then I saw that Jesus would not leave
the most holy place until every case was decided either for salvation or
destruction: and that the wrath of God could not come until Jesus had
finished his work in the most holy place--laid off his priestly attire and
clothed himself with the garments of vengeance. Then Jesus will step out from
between the Father and man, and God will keep silent no longer; but pour out
his wrath on those who have rejected his truth. I saw that the anger of the
nations, the wrath of God, and the time to judge the dead, were separate
events, one following the other. I saw that Michael had not stood up, and
that the time of trouble, such as never was, had not yet commenced. The
nations are now getting angry, but when our High Priest has finished his work
in the Sanctuary, he will stand up, put on the garments of vengeance, and
then the seven last plagues will be poured out. I saw that the four angels
would hold the four winds until Jesus work was done in the Sanctuary, and
then will come the seven last plagues. These plagues enraged the wicked
against the righteous, and they thought that we had brought them down upon
them, and if they could rid the earth of us, then the plagues would be
stayed. A decree went forth to slay the saints, which caused them to cry day
and night for deliverance. This was the time of Jacob's trouble. Then all the
saints cried out with anguish of spirit, and were delivered by the Voice of
God. Then the 144,000 triumphed. Their faces were lighted up with the glory
of God. Then I was shown a company who were howling in agony. On their
garments was written in large characters--thou art weighed in the balance,
and found wanting. I asked who this company were. The angel said,"these are
they who have once kept the Sabbath and have given it up." I heard them cry
with a loud voice--"we have believed in thy coming, and taught it with
energy." And while they were speaking, their eyes would fall upon their
garments and see the writing, and then they would wail aloud. I saw they had
drunk of the deep waters, and fouled the residue with their feet--trodden the
Sabbath underfoot, and that is why they were weighed in the balance and found
wanting. Then my attending angel directed me to the city again, where I saw
four angels winging their way to the gate of the city, and were just
presenting the golden card to the angel at the gate. Then I saw another angel
swiftly flying from the direction of the most excellent glory, and crying
with a loud voice to the other angels, and waving something up and down in
his hand. I asked my attending angel for an explanation of what I saw. He
told me that I could see no more then, but he would shortly show me what
those things that I then saw meant.

Sabbath afternoon one of our number was sick, and requested prayers that
he might be healed. We all united in applying to the Physician who never lost
a case, and while healing power came down, and the sick was healed, the
Spirit fell upon me and I was taken off in vision. I saw the state of some
who stood on present truth, but disregarded the visions,--the way God had
chosen to teach in some cases, those who erred from Bible truth. I saw that
in striking against the visions they did not strike against the worm--the
feeble instrument that God spake through; but against the Holy Ghost. I saw
it was a small thing to speak against the instrument, but it was dangerous to
slight the words of God. I saw if they were in error and God chose to show
them their errors through visions, and they disregarded the teachings of God
through visions, they would be left to take their own way, and run in the way
of error, and think they were right, until they would find it out too late.
Then in the time of trouble I heard them cry to God in agony--"Why didst thou
not show us our wrong, that we might have got right and been ready for this
time?" Then an angel pointed to them and said--"My Father taught, but you
would not be taught.--He spoke through visions, but you disregarded his
voice, and he gave you up to your own ways, to be filled with your own
doings." Then I saw four angels who had a work to do on the earth, and were
on their way to accomplish it. Jesus was clothed with Priestly garments. He
gazed in pity on the remnant, then raised his hands upward, and with a voice
of deep pity cried--'My Blood, Father, my Blood, my Blood, my Blood." Then I
saw an exceeding bright light come from God, who sat upon the great white
throne, and was shed all about Jesus. Then I saw an angel with a commission
from Jesus, swiftly flying to the four angels who had a work to do on the
earth, and waving something up and down in his hand, and crying with a loud
voice--"Hold,! Hold! Hold! Hold! until the servants of God are sealed in
their foreheads."--I asked my accompanying angel the meaning of what I heard,
and what the four angels were about to do. He said to me that it was God that
restrained the powers, and that he gave his angels charge over things on the
earth, and that the four angels had power from God to hold the four winds,
and that they were about to let the four winds go, and while they had started
on their mission to let them go, the merciful eye of Jesus gazed on the
remnant that were not all sealed, then he raised his hands to the Father and
plead with him that he had spilled his blood for them. Then another angel was
commissioned to fly swiftly to the four angels, and bid them hold until the
servants of God were sealed with the seal of the living God in their

Dec. 16, 1848, the Lord gave me a view of the shaking of the powers of
the heavens. I saw that when the Lord said "heaven" (in giving the signs
recorded by Matt., Mark and Luke) he meant heaven, and when he said "earth"
he meant earth. The powers of heaven are the Sun, Moon, and Stars: they rule
in the heavens. The powers of earth are those who bear rule on the
earth.--The powers of heaven will be shaken at the voice of God. Then the
Sun, Moon and Stars will be moved out of their places. They will not pass
away, but be shaken by the voice of God.

Dark, heavy clouds came up, and clashed against each other. The
atmosphere parted and rolled back, then we could look up through the open
space in Orion, from whence came the voice of God. The Holy City will come
down through that open space. I saw that the powers of earth are now being
shaken, and that events come in order. War, and rumors of war,--sword, famine
and pestilence, are first to shake the powers of earth, then the voice of God
will shake the Sun, Moon and Stars, and this earth also. I saw that the
shaking of the powers in Europe is not (as some teach) the shaking of the
powers of heaven, but it is the shaking of the angry nations.

I have seen the tender love that God has for his people, and it is very
great. I saw an angel over every saint, with their wings spread about them:
and if the saints wept through discouragement, or were in danger, the angel
that ever attended them would fly quickly upward to carry the tidings, and
the angels in the city would cease to sing. Then Jesus would commission
another angel to descend to encourage, watch over and try to keep them from
going out of the narrow path: but, if they did not take heed to the watchful
care of these angels, and would not be comforted by them, and continued to go
astray, the angels would look sad and weep. Then they would bear the tidings
upward, and all the angels in the city would weep, and then with a loud voice
say, Amen. But if the saints fixed their eyes on the prize before them, and
glorified God by praising him, then the angels would bear the glad tidings to
the city, and the angels in the city would touch their golden harps and sing
with a loud voice--Alleluia! and the heavenly arches would ring with their
lovely songs. I will here state, that there is perfect order and harmony in
the holy city.

card, which they present to the angels at the gates of the city as they pass

The Lord has given me a view of other worlds. Wings were given me, and
an angel attended me from the city to a place that was bright and glorious.
The grass of the place was living green, and the birds there warbled a sweet
song. The inhabitants of the place were of all sizes, they were noble,
majestic and lovely. They bore the express image of Jesus, and their
countenances beamed with holy joy, expressive of the freedom and happiness of
the place. I asked one of them why they were so much more lovely than those
on the earth. The reply was--"we have lived in strict obedience to the
commandments of God, and have not fallen by disobedience, like those on the
earth." Then I saw two trees, one looked much like the tree of life in the
city. The fruit of both looked beautiful; but of one they could not eat. They
had power to eat of both, but were forbidden to eat of one. Then my attending
angel said to me--"none in this place have tasted of the forbidden tree; but
if they should eat they would fall." Then I was taken to a world which had
seven moons. There I saw good old Enoch, who had been translated. On his
right arm he bore a glorious palm, and on each leaf was written Victory.
Around his head was a dazzling white wreath, and leaves on the wreath, and in
the middle of each was written Purity; and around the leaf were stones of
various colors, that shone brighter than the stars, and cast a reflection
upon the letters, and magnified them. On the back part of his head was a bow
that confined the wreath, and upon the bow was written Holiness. Above the
wreath was a lovely crown that shone brighter than the sun. I asked him if
this was the place he was taken to from the earth. He said, "It is not; but
the city is my home, and I have come to visit this place." He moved about the
place as if perfectly at home. I begged of my attending angel to let me
remain in that place. I could not bear the thought of coming back to this
dark world again. Then the angel said--"you must go back, and if you are
faithful, you, with the 144,000 shall have the privilege of visiting all the
worlds and viewing the handy work of God."

For two years past, the Lord has shown me in vision, repeatedly, that it
is contrary to the Bible to make any provision for our temporal wants in the
time of trouble. I saw that if the saints have food laid up by them, or in
the fields, in the time of trouble when sword, famine, and pestilence are in
the land, it will be taken from them by violent hands and strangers would
reap their fields. Then will be the time for us to trust wholly in God, and
he will sustain us. I saw that our bread and water would be sure at that
time, and we should not lack, or suffer hunger.--The Lord has shown me that
some of his children would fear when they see the price of food rising, and
they would buy food and lay it by for the time of trouble. Then in a time of
need, I saw them go to their food and look at it, and it had bred worms, and
was full of living creatures, and not fit for use. About one week since, the
Lord showed me in vision, that houses and lands would be of no use in the
time of trouble, and in that time they could not be disposed of. I saw it was
the will of God that the saints should cut loose from every
encumbrance--dispose of their houses and lands before the time of trouble
comes, and make a covenant with God by sacrifice. I saw they would sell if
they laid their property on the altar and earnestly inquired for duty. Then
God will teach them when to dispose of these things. Then they will be free
in the time of trouble, and have no clogs to weigh them down.

I saw if they held on to their property, and did not inquire duty of the
Lord, he would not make duty known, and they would be permitted to keep their
property, and then in the time of trouble their property would come up before
them like a mountain to crush them. Then they tried to get rid of it, but
could not. I heard them mourn like this,--the cause was languishing--God's
people were suffering for truth, and we made no effort to supply the lack,
and now our property is useless. Oh! that we had let it go, and laid up
treasure in heaven. I saw a sacrifice did not increase, but decrease, and was
consumed. I also saw that God had not required all of his people to dispose
of their property at the same time, but in a time of need he would teach
them, if they desired to be taught, when to sell and how much to sell. I saw
that some had been required to dispose of their property in past time to
sustain the advent cause, while he permitted others to keep theirs until a
time of need. Then as the cause needs it, their duty is to sell.

Now is the time to lay up treasure in heaven, and to set our hearts in
order, ready for the time of trouble. Those only who have clean hands and a
pure heart will stand that trying time. Now is the time for the law of God to
be in our minds (foreheads), and written in our hearts. The Lord has shown me
the danger of letting our minds be filled with worldly thoughts and cares. I
saw that some minds were led away from present truth and a love of the holy
Bible, by reading other exciting books; and others were filled with
perplexity and care for what they shall eat, drink and wear. I saw some,
looking too far off for the coming of the Lord. Time has continued on a few
years longer than they expected, therefore they think it may continue a few
years more, and in this way their minds are being led from present truth, out
after the world. In these things I saw great danger; for if the mind is
filled with other things, present truth is shut out, and there is no place in
our foreheads for the seal of the living God. This seal is the Sabbath. I saw
that the time for Jesus to be in the most holy place was nearly finished, and
that time can last but a very little longer; and what leisure time we have
should be spent in searching the Bible, which is to judge us in the last day.

My Dear Brethren and Sisters:--Let the commandments of God, and the
testimony of Jesus Christ be in your minds continually, and let them crowd
worldly thoughts and cares from the mind. When you lie down, and when you
rise up, let them be your meditation. Live, and act wholly in reference to
the coming of the Son of Man. The sealing time is very short, and soon will
be over. Now is the time to make our calling and election sure, while the
four angels are holding the four winds.

If any among us are sick, let us not dishonor God by applying to earthly
physicians, but apply to the God of Israel. If we follow his directions
(James 5:14, 15) the sick will be healed. God's promise cannot fail. Have
faith in God, and trust wholly in him, that when Christ who is our life shall
appear we may appear with him in glory.

We felt an unusual spirit of prayer. And as we prayed, the Holy Ghost
fell upon us. We were very happy. Soon I was lost to earthly things, and was
wrapped up in a vision of God's glory. I saw an angel swiftly flying to me.
He quickly carried me from the earth to the Holy City. In the city I saw a
temple, which I entered. I passed through a door before I came to the first
veil. This veil was raised, and I passed into the Holy Place. Here I saw the
Altar of Incense. Before the altar was the table, on which was the
candlestick, with seven lamps, and the showbread, &c. After viewing the glory
of the Holy, Jesus raised the second veil, and I passed into the Holy of

In the Holiest I saw an ark; on the top and sides of it was purest gold.
On each end of the ark was a lovely Cherub, with their wings spread out over
it. Their faces were turned towards each other, and they looked downwards.
Between the angels was a golden censor. Above the ark, where the angels
stood, was an exceeding bright glory, that appeared like a throne where God
dwelt. Jesus stood by the ark. And as the saints' prayers came up to Jesus,
the incense in the censor would smoke, and He offered up the prayers of the
saints with the smoke of the incense to His Father. In the ark, was the
golden pot of manna, Aaron's rod that budded and the tables of stone which
folded together like a book. Jesus opened them, and I saw the ten
commandments written on them with the finger of God. On one table was four,
and on the other six. The four on the first table shone brighter than the
other six. But the fourth (the Sabbath commandment,) shone above them all;
for the Sabbath was set apart to be kept in honor of God's holy name. The
holy Sabbath looked glorious--a halo of glory was all around it. I saw that
the Sabbath was not nailed to the cross. If it was, the other nine
commandments were; and we are at liberty to go forth and break them all, as
well as to break the fourth. I saw that God had not changed the Sabbath, for
He never changes. But the Pope had changed it from the seventh to the first
day of the week; for he was to change times and laws.

And I saw that if God had changed the Sabbath, from the seventh to the
first day, He would have changed the writing of the Sabbath commandment,
written on the tables of stone, which are now in the ark, in the Most Holy
Place of the Temple in heaven; and it would read thus: The first day is the
Sabbath of the Lord thy God. But I saw that it read the same as when written
on the tables of stone by the finger of God, and delivered to Moses in Sinai,
"But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God." I saw that the holy
Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the true Israel of God
and unbelievers; and that the Sabbath is the great question, to unite the
hearts of God's dear waiting saints. And if one believed, and kept the
Sabbath, and received the blessing attending it, and then gave it up, and
broke the holy commandment, they would shut the gates of the Holy City
against themselves, as sure as there was a God that rules in heaven above. I
saw that God had children, who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They had not
rejected the light on it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we
were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth, and proclaimed the Sabbath
more fully. This enraged the church, and nominal Adventists, as they could
not refute the Sabbath truth. And at this time, God's chosen all saw clearly
that we had the truth, and they came out and endured the persecution with us.
And I saw the sword, famine, pestilence, and great confusion in the land. The
wicked though that we had brought the judgments down on them. They rose up
and took counsel to rid the earth of us, thinking that then the evil would be

I saw all that "would not receive the mark of the Beast, and of his
Image, in their foreheads or in their hands," could not buy or sell. I saw
that the number (666) of the Image Beast was made up; and that it was the
beast that changed the Sabbath, and the Image Beast had followed on after,
and kept the Pope's, and not God's Sabbath. And all we were required to do,
was to give up God's Sabbath, and keep the Pope's, and then we should have
the mark of the Beast, and of his Image.

In the time of trouble, we all fled from the cities and villages, but
were pursued by the wicked, who entered the houses of the saints with the
sword. They raised the sword to kill us, but it broke, and fell, as powerless
as a straw. Then we all cried day and night for deliverance, and the cry came
up before God. The sun came up, and the moon stood still. The streams ceased
to flow. Dark heavy clouds came up, and clashed against each other. But there
was one clear place of settled glory, from whence came the <SI voice of
God <EI like many waters, which shook the heavens, and the earth. The sky
opened and shut, and was in commotion. The mountains shook like a reed in the
wind, and cast out rugged rocks all around. The sea boiled like a pot, and
cast out stones upon the land. And as God spoke the day and hour of Jesus
coming, and delivered the everlasting covenant to His people, He spoke one
sentence, and then paused, while the words were rolling through the earth!
The Israel of God stood with their eyes fixed upwards, listening to the words
as they came from the mouth of Jehovah, and rolled through the earth like
peals of loudest thunder! It was awfully solemn. At the end of every
sentence, the saints shouted, Glory! Hallelujah! Their countenances were
lighted up with the glory of God; and they shone with the glory as Moses'
face did when he came down from Sinai. The wicked could not look on them, for
the glory. And when the never ending blessing was pronounced on those who had
honored God, in keeping His Sabbath holy, there was a mighty shout of victory
over the Beast, and over his Image.

Then commenced the jubilee, when the land should rest. I saw the pious
slave rise in triumph and victory, and shake off the chains that bound him,
while his wicked master was in confusion, and knew not what to do; for the
wicked could not understand the words of the voice of God. Soon appeared the
great white cloud. It looked more lovely than ever before. On it sat the Son
of Man. At first we did not see Jesus on the cloud, but as it drew near the
earth, we could behold his lovely person. This cloud when it first appeared
was the Sign of the Son of Man in heaven. The voice of the Son of God called
forth the sleeping saints, clothed with a glorious immortality. The living
saints were changed in a moment, and caught up with them in the cloudy
chariot. It looked all over glorious as it rolled upwards. On either side of
the chariot were wings, and beneath it wheels. And as the chariot rolled
upwards, the wheels cried Holy, and the wings as they moved, cried Holy, and
the retinue of Holy Angels around the cloud cried Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God
Almighty. And the saints in the cloud cried Glory, Hallelujah. And the cloudy
chariot rolled upwards to the Holy City. Jesus threw open the gates of the
Golden City, and led us in. Here we were made welcome, for we had kept the
"<SI Commandments <EI of God," and had a "right to the tree of life."
