Unless man is given the converting grace of heaven, he will have no disposition to oppose Satan’s counsels, and will become the enemy’s willing dupe. Manuscript 5, January 20, 1904.
In the books the truth is stated, barricaded by a “Thus saith the Lord,” The Holy
Spirit traced these truths upon my heart and mind as indelibly as the law was traced by the finger of God upon the tables of stone, which are now in the ark, to be brought forth in that great day when sentence is pronounced against every evil, seducing science produced by the father of lies….
Some may make light of these messages, misinterpret them, and say untruthful
things, which lead others’ minds astray. Our only hope is in the God of truth. Our mediator understands every phase of the matter. The more plainly the testing truth is brought before the people, the more bitter will be the hatred manifested by those who have departed from the faith, and given their attention to sentiments of Satan’s presentation. Letter 90, March 6, 1906. (see also 7ABC 375; CM 126; 3SM 122; TDG 74)
