MR No. 1124—Proclaim God's Truth; Avoid Fanciful Theories

(Written August 1, 1904, from Takoma Park, Washington, D. C., to “Brethren Paulson, Sadler, Jones, and Waggoner.”)

Proclaim this message, for it is your life. God will give you the power of His grace. He will give you the treasures of truth, and the Holy Spirit will make them shine in their original luster. Give to the world the message the Lord has given you. Remove not a pin or a pillar from the foundation of our faith. Preach the truth as it has been given by the Lord. This truth is powerful in the conviction of sinners. 14MR 311.1

There is a higher order of enjoyment and power than man can create, derived from a source above humanity. But in order to fulfill Christ's purpose for you, you must study the truths He has given you. Eat and drink the Word. Put away all fanciful theories. Let the truth stand out in its original power. God's great purposes are to be worked out, after the pattern of things in the heavens. Let God give you your message. Weigh every proposition coming from human beings, for fanciful theories will be brought in.—Letter 279, 1904, pp. 8, 9. 14MR 311.2
