QUESTION NO 10: How, Oh Great Heavenly Father, can such little known
and little accepted ministers and elders as myself do our
part as partners and co-laborers with Thee to hasten the
day of these great things?
You, My servant, to whom this gift of writing by inspiration has come,
have had granted unto you a very special blessing.
To very few has there come such details
concerning these deeply spiritual aspects of the endowment
as has been opened up unto you.
These prophetic insights have come to you
because you are deeply concerned about this great day of endowment,
because, in part, you see its need,
because you have had faith to inquire of the Lord, and
because you have withdrawn yourself from the world and
have come into the Lord's sanctuary, even the Lord's house.
Here in His house,
with its hallowed memories of the past, and
with its high expectations and
glowing prophecy of great things yet to be--even
here has the Lord by His Spirit met you.
Here has come to you the unseen ministry of angels.
Here has He inspired you and given you vision.
Here your mind and intelligence have been opened up
far beyond any experience you have had hitherto.
Yea, also in the quietness of the early hours of morning
when the birds in the surrounding trees were raising their many songs of
rejoicing to Him who created them, and
when you were caring for the gentle animals which the kindly foresight
of the great Father has so lovingly provided for men,
even there in the beautiful temple of the outdoors the Lord
spoke to you by His still small voice,
bringing testimony concerning that which had come to you
in this His House.
And, My servant, when you lifted your voice at Reunion time
to tell My people,
to share with My people that which had come to you,
I the Lord,
stood by you, and
caused My Apostle, Arthur Oakman, to confirm that which you said,
and even more,
I witnessed by My gracious Spirit unto many others
that you spoke as a servant of the Lord of Hosts.
Now, what can you do?
Try to become much more spiritual than you are!
Try with all your heart to become an Elder in whom dwells great faith!
As opportunity comes to you, or,
as you can make opportunity, speak of these things, and
just as I, the Lord, opened up the way for you at the Reunion thru the
keen gift of discernment of My Apostle,
even so will the way be opened up on many other occasions, and
just as at Reunion your testimony touched the hearts of hundreds,
even so shall it be in the future.
Fear not to speak of these deep, spiritual matters
for they are most dear to the heart of your Heavenly Father. He
delights in them and
longs with a great longing
that all His servants and ministers shall also find in them
Fear not to speak of them,
for the need of this,
God's richest blessing and
the mighty demonstration of His power,
is far beyond all that you even begin to comprehend.
with all his angels,
with all his multitudinous followers,
with all those of the earth he has so terribly deceived--
even he, the father of lies, is moving with the
utmost of zeal and
to make his evil way prevail, and
to take away the agency of man.
He knows that his time is short.
Yea, with all the
intensity of his intelligence and his evil character,
he lifts his face toward the heavens, where God dwells, and
with beating fists cries out, "I will win, I will win!"
Hear ye, hear ye, he must not prevail, neither will he prevail,
yet it is only as God's servants
come up to the mountain of the Lord's House and learn of his ways, and
come to the place where they too can have power and wisely exercise it--
it is only thus that the Lord's army can become
In thus stirring the needs and spirits of His servants and His people you can help.
All that the Lord will thus do for you
likewise will He do for any and all
who see the vision of what He desires shall be and
who work for it.
Nevertheless, the way will not be easy.
Some will see and respond, and
some will see and not respond.
Some will be openly antagonistic, trusting in the arm of flesh.
The way of the prophet and the prophetic-minded is still the way of
Yet all who suffer with Jesus Christ shall also rejoice with Him.
The answer, then, is plain.
by teaching classes,
by prophetic experiences from time to time,
by exercise of the many gracious gifts of the Spirit,
by personal conversation,
by stimulation of the souls of all who will listen,
by deeper insight into the scriptures,
by a growing and glowing spiritual life--
by these and such ways may all My servants help in bringing very near
the great day of endowment.
Now, my son, you have answers to your questions, such as are sufficient for you.
You have not seen all, for this greater seeing
waits upon your growth. It
waits upon the growth of others as well--
from those of high position and opportunity to those of humble
position, like yourself.
Of this be assured--
all that you have seen, or
that you or others yet may see--
all that is possible of rapid fulfillment as you partake of that
power that come alone from your Father which is in Heaven,
for His is the
kingdom and the
power and the
glory forever and ever, Amen.
