What shall this day be like when He shall suddenly come to His temple?
Let inspired imaginations attempt to envision this day, aided by
the word of the prophets and
the spiritual guidance and
experience you can yourself have.
Truly, in that day,
only those who have sacrificially made themselves holy may abide in His
How beautiful in the courts of His temple
will be the radiant countenance of Him
who has thus come from the very presence of the eternal Father.
The words and the truths He shall express will be far beyond and above what any of
you can offer, and
by them will you be instructed for all that lies before.
One by one shall He
call you by name and
commission you with a special commission.
He shall lay His hand on your head and
place upon you the seal of His
Not only shall cloven tongues of fire, as it were, rest upon you,
but the brightest glory of spiritual light shall completely envelop you,
burning out such dross as may be left in you,
eliminating the last tendencies of selfishness,
and finest of all,
filling you instead with an immense
understanding of the Eternal Father and all He stands for.
Ah, it is wondrously possible that
even as angelic choirs sang at the time of His earthly birth, the great song of
glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men,
even so, as He shall meet with His servants who have prepared themselves,
both individually and collectively,
there will be wonderful choirs of angelic beings who shall
group themselves around about Him and
sing a glorious new song
of intense love for the God of Holiness,
of love for men, and
of such superlative ideals, such as only angelic choirs could
arrange, or angelic choirs present.
Ask the great Father to
let you see somewhat of the glorious experience that shall be
in these climaxing days of endowment,
that you may be entreated by that which you see,
that you may be inspired and
filled with a great desire to be one of those His servants who shall
then stand in His presence,
that you shall see these things, and
that you may be commissioned with a great commission, and
that you may labor together with Him who endows you
in the greatest harvest of the world.
From all this shall you go forth in strong testimony that Jesus is,
for you have seen Him, and
that you have been taught of Him,
that you have been sent by Him
to bind up the law and
to seal up the testimony ere the end shall come.
Also from all this shall you go forth to testify
that His coming is near,
that He is coming in judgment of the wickedness of the world,
that He is coming to reward and bless those that love Him, and
that He is coming to usher in the millennium and
to prepare His chosen people--those who have chosen Him--
for the return of Zion, even that Holy City that John saw coming
down from God out of heaven.
You shall go forth in mighty power,
shouting the cry of repentance, and
pleading with men to have faith in that wonderful, marvelous, loving creator of
heaven and earth, who so greatly desires to bless them beyond measure,
and your cry shall be heard among all nations of men
for every kindred, tongue and people shall hear.
