Kress, Brother and Sister [D. H.]



Previously unpublished. Fragment.

[First part missing.]

As I read the Word of the Lord, I see abundant work provided for every soul. Matthew 10:1-8. We have a very high and sacred work given us to perform. We are to be imbued with the Spirit of Christ and call upon Him in faith to do the healing as we shall act our part, because the Lord Jesus is the Healer. Lt154-1910.1

“What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.” Matthew 10:27. Many discourses were given upon housetops. Roofs of many houses were flat. This chapter is an important chapter. We all need to learn of Christ. Lt154-1910.2

Now my Brother Kress and my Sister, I see so great a work to do that I may honor my Saviour, that I dare not take myself in my own hands. You must, my brother and sister, do the very work for this time that will bring the most light and help to bless others. You can understand the will of God if you consecrate yourself to the Lord Jesus. I did hope much that you would be a great blessing to communicate light to souls in the highways, also in the byways, and would be glad [for you] to talk out your ideas in this direction. But I dare not mark out any line for you, because it may bring perplexity and not relief. I want you to serve the Lord, just as you can do, so that His name may receive glory. Therefore I will not venture to counsel you further than I have already done. Lt154-1910.3

You are on the ground. And that God who knows you and all with whom you are associated will be your counselor and so order your position and work to accomplish the work He sees you can do to glorify His name. Therefore I shall not, being afar off and not nigh, counsel you unless I have a special message. Lt154-1910.4

Now I believe if you will consecrate your own self wholly to the Lord, He will guide you in the very way to best glorify His holy name. He has said He would do this. Then let reference to myself not come into your calculation. If I have anything the Lord gives me for you or your family, then you shall have it. Let you and I and your wife walk humbly with God. We will read 2 Peter 1:1-5. Lt154-1910.5

There are so many who wish me to decide things for them concerning their religious duties; the Lord would not have me do this. Let us look unto the Lord and learn to trust wholly in Him and walk in all humility of mind. I must be excused from trying to find out what is your duty before the Lord. I am determined to walk and labor. Now is the time for the men bearing responsibilities to pray, and watch and pray, for changes are to be made. [Remainder missing.] Lt154-1910.6
