explanations given after coming out of vision. 1EGWLM 325.5

Thou wouldest not want him to step out if thou knewest thy situation. That desire was to disenthrone these kings, but that could not be, for kings must reign till Christ began to reign. 1EGWLM 325.6

I saw in Europe just as things were moving to accomplish their desires, there would seemingly be slacking up once or twice, thus the hearts of the wicked world would be relieved and hardened, but the work would not settle down (only seem to), for the minds of kings and rulers were intent upon overthrowing each other, and the minds of the people to get the ascendancy.3 1EGWLM 325.7

I saw that all minds were intensely looking and stretching their thoughts on the impending crisis before them. 1EGWLM 326.1

The sins of Israel must go to judgment beforehand.4 Every sin must be confessed at the sanctuary, then the work will move. It must be done now. The remnant in the time of trouble5 will cry, My God! my God! why hast Thou forsaken me?6 1EGWLM 326.2

The latter rain7 is coming on those that are pure—all then will receive it as formerly. 1EGWLM 326.3

When the four angels let go,8 Christ will set up His kingdom. 1EGWLM 326.4

(None receive the latter rain but those who do all they can) <to water others with truth, eternal truth.> Christ would help us. All could be overcomers by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus. All heaven is interested in the work. Angels are interested. 1EGWLM 326.5

Think ye that He will bring His hand to Himself until He has accomplished the object for which He stretched it out? Yea, more bitter hatred against those that keep the law than against the Catholics.9 1EGWLM 326.6

Truth, the truth, let it shine. Hold them by the side of truth. What are they rich in? They seek falsehood, deception, and cunning. Behold! where is their strength? Is it in the truth? A mere knowledge of the truth will never save. 1EGWLM 326.7

How long then, angel of God, before the message will go with a loud voice?10 Other things to be accomplished. They must make themselves more vile. If Jesus should make His appearance in their midst, they would despise Him. They advocate their errors for a while, until the people get disgusted with it, then they add another.11 Nights upon their beds, horror gets hold of them. Can ye not see it? Live unto God. He has gotten them safe in the snare. The honest are getting disgusted. Satan works at the very ones that do him the most harm. God can make them a host against their enemies. 1EGWLM 326.8

Ye give up too quick. Ye let go too soon that Arm! The arm of God is mighty. Satan works in different ways to steal the mind off from God. Victory, victory, we must have it over every wrong. A solemn sinking into God. Get ready. Set thine house in order. <These words were spoken in vision.> 1EGWLM 327.1
