The Great Second Advent Movement: Its Rise and Progress


The Second Call to the Marriage Supper

The second message—the one following the judgment hour cry—says, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” And the second call to the supper reads, “Go ye quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.” In each of these scriptures the Lord’s professed people are called a “city.” With their conflicting, confused creeds they are called “Babylon.” By another scripture referring to the last times, we see that just before the Lord’s coming his people are called out of “Babylon:” “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.... Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” 5 GSAM 171.4
