I then inquired if James [James Springer White] would be spared or would be removed before the time of trouble.3 Said the angel, What is that to thee?4 Follow Jesus, follow the opening providence of God. Have unwavering faith in His promises. Walk by faith and not by sight. 1EGWLM 449.4

In regard to the office and what our duty is in regard to it, had no light,5 but was sighted to other visions that God had given.6 Look at them carefully; lose not sight of the opening providences of God; carefully regard all His teachings and obey them. I saw that no longer should those connected with the office bear the burdens they have borne.7 They must, they must, be free in mind and then their health will improve. There has been none to help them bear their burdens, but if faint or discouraged the comfort they had was to see others in the same state. 1EGWLM 449.5
