MR No. 835—1982 Devotional Book
The light of the Sun of Righteousness is never dim. It is constantly shining on us. Notwithstanding Satan casts his hellish shadow athwart our path, the light shineth beyond!—Manuscript 24, 1889, 8. (Diary, December 21, 1889.) 10MR 338.1
From those who ... boldly witness for Christ, men will hear sacred truth that never before had heard it. In some hearts the seed will take roots. The converting power of God will win souls from darkness to light. Some of the very men on the judgment seat, lawyers and jurors, will embrace the truth, and in their turn will confess Christ before kings and rulers.—Manuscript 40, 1897, 13. (“Christ or Barabbas,” undated.) 10MR 338.2
All things nature and in the world at large are charged with intense earnestness. Satan, in cooperation with his angels and with evil men, will put forth every effort to gain the victory, and will appear to succeed. But from this conflict, truth and righteousness will come forth triumphant in victory. Those who believe a lie will be defeated, for the days of apostasy will be ended.—Manuscript 24, 1891, 11. (Diary, “Circulation of Great Controversy, vol. IV,” copied February, 1903.) 10MR 338.3
