Chief among ten thousand—hallelujah—glory. Look ye, heaven is in commotion. What is the matter? Just about to bathe His sword in heaven. How long? How long? How long? In commotion, the throng. Swift messengers of Almighty God, withhold not [the means, I suppose]. Speed the messengers, speed the messengers (still repeated), speed the messengers. Last work. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 1

Pray for the covering. God cannot be trifled with. Look ye, be careful how thou treadest. The angels are letting go; the sword, famine, and pestilence [are] coming speedily. Cut it down. Is there any danger? None for God’s people. Eternal weight of glory (repeated). Little idols must be dropped in the pathway. There will not be disunion much longer. The sealing work will soon be done. Press together (repeated). Love one another as I have loved you. Lay down your life for the brethren. Deny self; it is not dead; it has got to die throughout the camp. He loves His brethren as Himself. If they cannot agree together here, they cannot reign together in heaven. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 2

Have pity; speed them on. There is commotion in heaven! No more proclamation; every case fixed. My Lord and my God! Speed Thy messengers (repeated many times). The mansions are about ready. Heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. It is high time that self was denied. The mind will be clearer. They are to be done away. The time of trouble is coming; who will stand? 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 3

Deny self (repeated) to do others good. Have the eyes wide open; see on the right and on the left, and see if you cannot do someone good. The latter rain is coming; a few drops have fallen (healing the sick). It is coming; open thine eyes. Let the angels hover. Serve God perfectly. It is a great thing to be a Christian, a great thing to be swallowed up in God. They (the wicked) shall not fear as much as they do now. Expect they will make light of it. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 4

He has not forgotten His people. He will place crowns on their heads. That company have denied self—(repeated). Nothing to do with them. Israel brought them away from the Egyptians (meaning the children), while the destroying angel passed by. Their blood shall be upon their garments. Although Noah, Job, and Daniel were in the land, they could deliver but their own souls. God’s people are a peculiar people, not like the world—it’s poison, it’s like an adder. Look ye well lest blood be found upon thy garments, lest thy children be cast down before thine eyes. Have pity, have compassion, spare a little longer. “Have pity” (repeated). 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 5

“The light is almost gone. You have no desire to meet with them.” (Sister Anderson). The jewels are almost made up. They are made up but they do not shine. It is the swift messengers that are to do the work. Think that the reward will not be great enough to pay for all the trials. Yea, God sent thee to that work [meaning Brother Chamberlain]. Can the leopard change his spots? Hide it from me; take it away that my eyes may not behold. Hide it away. Thou hast lain the burden on me once, twice, and thrice, and has sent Thy servants 100 miles. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 6

O spare (repeated). Think ye that the ark will move there? It is not a holy place. Look, God will not bear always (repeated). He is great. He is mighty. He has been trifled with; will not bear always. The work will be done up speedily; the burden may be 100 miles off. Look, a little. Spare (repeated). Hide away under the covering. Get beneath it. Do not stand outside. Hide away quickly. The four angels are about to let go; then the time of trouble. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 7

Everything has got to be proclaimed upon the housetops. If the sins are confessed before that time. That time will be an awful time. If confessed, it must be done right early. Every secret thing must come to light. If confessed before that time, thy sins will be placed on the scapegoat and borne away. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 8

Time of trouble, it will come right early. The signs shall be reacted over again; the day and hour will then be known. The sea will boil like a pot. Their faces will then shine like Moses’. He appears in the east; His sword girded on His thigh. Then deliverance comes, perfect and entire, and God’s people will be caught up on the white cloud. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 9

I see it. (Says Brother Chamberlain: Here was silence for some ten minutes, her eyes going quickly each way as if looking at angels. When she came out of vision she accounted it thus: “I saw a large company of angels moving. I was not permitted to tell what they said to me. Each one had a round rod in their hand ten inches long. Think they had something to do with the time of trouble, etc.”) 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 10

How long shall these things be? Where art thou? Do not know. How does thou stand? Don’t know. Isn’t it thy privilege to know? Every servant can know whether their lives are hid with Christ in God. Did ye not see them speeding quickly? Speed God’s people to save all that can be saved. Move, move, move. Not rashly; be sure God sends thee. The work is for God and then nothing can touch thee. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 11

What? Don’t thou turn an eye to please self. Live for God. If God’s people do not go along, something is wrong. The four angels just ready to let go. His strength will save. Get hold of Jesus. Dark. Lonely. Thou knowest the sadness of the heart. How long shall it be so? Sadness. Have pity, have pity. 1LtMs, Ms 6, 1849, par. 12
