I found this manuscript fragment yesterday during my devotion. The White Estate only published a portion of it prior to 2015. They sadly left out some excellent counsel, so I decided to share the whole thing. We will need to understand this if we are truly to be a holy people!
It is not necessary that there be voices of contention in God’s service. Those who work for God are to work in unity. They are to live a life of prayer, distinguished from the world by their Christlikeness. They are to trust in the Lord, calling on Him for help in time of trouble.
We seldom find two persons exactly alike. Among human beings, as well as among the things of the natural world, there is diversity. Unity in diversity among God’s children—the manifestation of love and forbearance in spite of a difference of disposition—this is the testimony that God sent His Son into the world to save sinners.
God has a remnant people in the world—a people who are not following worldly policy. Of them we read in the Scripture, “The dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
God calls upon those who hope in His mercy to guard themselves, to set a watch over their own hearts and purposes, that their judgment shall not be blinded by selfishness. — Manuscript 99 (1902)
What say you? Will you join us in repenting of our Laodicean condition and praying for a true conversion of our hearts? Will you stand with the final remnant, the holy people of God? We pray that you will!
