Scenario  of  Events  in  These  Last  Days

     There is a growing confusion among our separated Remnant people as to the sequence of events which will take place regarding the Latter Rain and the Loud Cry, the Sunday law, the close of probation, the plagues, the coming of Christ, and then what occurs afterwards.  For the next several Newsletters we will be investigating into all of these areas to see exactly what occurs when and what occurs next in these last days all the way until sin is forever eradicated from God’s universe!
     So let us begin with the events surrounding the Sunday law.

     Regarding the Sunday law: Some believe that the national Sunday law in the United States of America cannot be enacted without a long period of time elapsing so that it can be challenged as being unconstitutional, and then eventually will be decided by the Supreme Court before it can be enforced. But this belief is not correct, and Satan is seeking to gain an advantage over our people through their lack of understanding on this vitally important subject!  So then what is the truth regarding the Sunday Law?

     Can the Sunday Law be enacted and enforced today without a long drawn-out legal battle ensuing and the Supreme Court finally getting involved?  The answer to this question is yes!  What many people do not realize is that this very issue of whether the Sunday law is constitutional or not has already been legally heard, discussed and finally decided by the Supreme Court of the United States of America!
     Chief Justice Earl Warren, who, by the way, was a Roman Catholic, declared in 4 different cases in 1961 that having Sunday of each week as a uniform day of rest from secular activities for all Americans did not violate the Constitution, even though it favored a rest day considered sacred and holy by a majority of religions.
     The 4 case decisions were these:
     #1. Margaret M. McGowan vs State of Maryland, 366 U.S. 420, docket #: 8 (May 29,1961) (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=CASE&court=US&vol=366&page=420);

     #2. Gallagher vs Crown Kosher Super Market of Massachusetts, 366 U.S. 617, docket #: 11 (May 29, 1961) (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/cgi-bin/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=366&invol=617);

     #3. Two Guys from Harrison Allentown (Pennsyvania), Inc. vs McGinley, 366 U.S. 582, docket #: 36 (May 29, 1961) (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=US&vol=366&invol=582);

     #4. Braunfeld vs Brown, 366 U.S. 599, docket #: 67 (May 29, 1961) (http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=CASE&court=US&vol=366&page=599).

     So the Supreme Court of the United States has already heard arguments challenging Sunday laws to be unconstitutional from different legal angles, and it has already decided that Sunday laws are constitutional – not just once, but in 4 different cases!  This means that there does not need to be a lengthy drawn out legal process before Sunday laws can be enforced today!

     Now this false belief shows us that we cannot trust only on what others tell us is the truth, including what the church and its leaders tell us, because we will be cursed if we do so!
     “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” Jeremiah 17:5.

     And neither can we then depend alone upon our own wisdom and what we think is the truth!
     “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.  And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20.

     “But they (God’s people) also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.” Isaiah 28:7.

     As this is true, then the only certain and trustworthy place where we can obtain the knowledge and wisdom with which to correctly understand the truth in these last days must be from God Himself, and He mercifully promises to grant us all the knowledge and wisdom we need to understand His truth.
     “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5.

     “If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” John 7:17.

     “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you....Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.” John 14:26, 16:13.

     The wisdom and knowledge which comes from God, as is found in His inspired word, must be our ONLY foundation and dependence in trying to understand the truth surrounding these last days.
     "To the law (Bible) and to the testimony (Spirit of Prophecy - Revelation 19:10), if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." Isaiah 8:20.

     "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15.

     “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1.  

     We must search and study God's inspired word for ourselves in order to know the truth dealing with the Latter Rain, the Loud Cry, the Sunday Law and all other events in these last days, and we cannot allow any man or church to be our conscience or to do our study for us.  Because “many deceivers are entered into the world” (2 John 1:7).  So this means that the only Person that we must go to in order to find the truth is God Himself!

     As this is true, then let us set aside what we may have been taught by others and even our church regarding the timing of the events of these last days, and let us allow God’s inspired word to show and instruct us as to what is the truth in these last days.

     Now the Lord allowed me to take the time to research throughout the inspired word of God dealing with the Latter Rain; the Loud Cry; the Sunday law and events connected with it; the close of probation; the second coming of Christ; the earth made new and then what the saints will be doing afterwards for eternity.  I then compiled all these passages in order to see the correct chronological order of these events.  In doing this I discovered that there are 30 different events.  So let us now begin to examine each one of these different 30 chronological events and see what God’s inspired word of truth reveals.

Event #1 – The Latter Rain falls and the Loud Cry message goes forth before the Sunday Law is passed.

     Many believe that the Sunday Law must be passed first before it is time for the Latter Rain to fall and time to give the Loud Cry.  But this belief does not agree with the inspired word of God, and thus cannot be correct.
     “I heard those clothed with the armor speak forth the truth with great power. It had effect. Many had been bound; some wives by their husbands, and some children by their parents. The honest who had been prevented from hearing the truth now eagerly laid hold upon it. All fear of their relatives was gone, and the truth alone was exalted to them. They had been hungering and thirsting for truth; it was dearer and more precious than life. I asked what had made this great change. An angel answered, 'It is the latter rain, the refreshing from the presence of the Lord, the loud cry of the third angel.'
     “Great power was with these chosen ones. Said the angel, "Look ye!" My attention was turned to the wicked, or unbelievers. They were all astir. The zeal and power with the people of God had aroused and enraged them. Confusion, confusion, was on every side. I saw measures taken against the company who had the light and power of God. Darkness thickened around them; yet they stood firm, approved of God, and trusting in Him. I saw them perplexed; next I heard them crying unto God earnestly.” Early Writings, p 271-272.

     “As the third message swells to a loud cry and as great power and glory attend the closing work, the faithful people of God will partake of that glory. It is the latter rain which revives and strengthens them to pass through the time of trouble.” Testimonies, vol 1, p 353.

     Here we see that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Latter Rain is inseparably connected with the Loud Cry, so that when the Loud Cry is given the Latter Rain falls with it!  And it is the Latter Rain and the Loud Cry that arouses and enrages all the wicked and unbelievers and leads them to take measures against those who gave the Loud Cry message.

     But now, does the Latter Rain and Loud Cry occur before or after the Sunday Law is passed?
     “God still has a people in Babylon; and before the visitation of his judgments, these faithful ones must be called out, that they "partake not of her sins, and receive not of her plagues." Hence the movement symbolized by the angel coming down from Heaven, lightening the earth with his glory, and crying mightily with a strong voice, announcing the sins of Babylon. In connection with his message the call is heard, "Come out of her, my people." As these warnings join the third angel's message, it swells to a loud cry....
     “The sins of Babylon will be laid open. The fearful results of a union of Church and State, the inroads of Spiritualism, the stealthy but rapid progress of the papal power,--all will be unmasked. By these solemn warnings the people will be stirred. Thousands upon thousands have never listened to words like these. In amazement they hear the testimony that Babylon is the church, fallen because of her errors and sins, because of her rejection of the truth sent to her from Heaven. The people go to their former teachers with the eager inquiry, Are these things so? The ministers present fables, prophesy smooth things, to soothe their fears, and quiet the awakened conscience. But many refuse to be satisfied with the mere authority of men, and demand a plain ‘Thus saith the Lord.’ The popular ministry, like the Pharisees of old, are filled with anger as their authority is questioned; they denounce the message as of Satan, and stir up the sin-loving multitudes to revile and persecute those who proclaim it.
     “As the controversy extends into new fields, and the minds of the people are called to God's down-trodden law, Satan is astir. The power attending the message only maddens those who oppose it. The clergy put forth almost superhuman efforts to shut away the light, lest it should shine upon their flocks. By every means at their command they endeavor to suppress the discussion of these vital questions. The church appeals to the strong arm of civil power, and in this work, papists are solicited to come to the help of Protestants. The movement for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided. The law is invoked against commandment-keepers.“ Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 422, 424-425.

     So here we see that the Loud Cry message that the churches are part of Babylon fallen and that God’s people must come out of her is given first, then this controversy extends, then the movement for Sunday enforcement intensifies and finally the Sunday law is passed.  This shows us that the falling of the Latter Rain and the giving of the Loud Cry comes before, not after, but before the Sunday Law is passed!  And dear ones, it is already time for the Latter Rain to fall and the Loud Cry to be given!
     “The descent of the Holy Spirit upon the church is looked forward to as being in the future, but it is the privilege of the church to have it now.” Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 61 (Letter 15, June 25, 1892).

     “Let us, with contrite hearts, pray most earnestly that now, in the time of the latter rain, the showers of spiritual grace may fall upon us....It is the time of the latter rain, when the Lord will give largely of His Holy Spirit.” Testimonies to Ministers, p 509, 512 (Review and Herald, March 2, 1897).

     “The time of test is just upon us, for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation of the righteousness of Christ, the sin pardoning Redeemer. This is the beginning of the light of the angel whose glory shall fill the whole earth.” Review and Herald, November 22, 1892.

     “All are to hear the last message of warning. The prophecies in the book of Revelation, chapters 12 to 18, are being fulfilled. In the eighteenth chapter is recorded the very last call to the churches. This call is now to be given.” Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 83 (Manuscript 75, September 20, 1906) (see also Upward Look, p 277).

     So dear ones, I hope you realize that your all wise God has positively declared the truth that the Latter Rain is already falling, and the Loud Cry is already being given!  So then it does not matter what any other person, pastor, Ministry, or church states to the contrary.  What only matters is what God states!  This means that you can receive the Latter Rain this very day, and can also give the Loud Cry message to others today!  You do not have to wait any longer!  It’s time NOW!  So all you have to do is ask and be willing to receive!
     “Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.” Zechariah 10:1.

     “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:1-5.

     But if you wait, or trust in the fallible words of others, you just might be passed by even though the Latter Rain is falling all around you!
     “Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light. Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognize the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it.” Testimonies to Ministers, p 507.

     Since the Latter Rain is already falling and the Loud Cry is already being given, then this means dear ones, that we have already entered into this very first event of these last days, and this also means that all the rest of these sequential events will not end until all 30 have occurred!  We are definitely living in the last days!

     Now after the Latter Rain is falling and the Loud Cry is being given, then the next event to occur is:

Event #2 – Major calamities fill the land and are viewed as judgments from God because Sunday is not kept holy.

     “Satan puts his interpretation upon events, and they [people] think, as he would have them, that the calamities which fill the land are a result of Sunday-breaking.” Manuscript Releases, vol 10, p 239.

     “Satan works under a guise of religion, and guided by him, the professed Christian world will be very zealous in working against the law of God. Satan is leading men and women to complete the ruin he began in heaven. He is willing for the world to declare that the calamity by land and sea and the destruction by flood and fire, are because Sunday is desecrated. Herein lies his deception. He is well pleased when men and women exalt Sunday; for he has been working for centuries to place the first day of the week where the seventh should be.” Review and Herald, June 4, 1901, par 10.

     And people are already publicly declaring this very thing!
     “A Christian minister claims the tsunami of Sunday, Dec. 26, (2004) killing at least 160,000 people, was direct result of ‘pleasure seekers’ breaking God's Sabbath.
     “In the February issue of his church magazine, Rev. John MacLeod of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland writes: ‘Possibly ... no event since Noah's flood has caused such loss of life by drowning as the recent Asian tsunami. That so many of our fellow creatures should have perished in so short a time, and in so awful a fashion, was a divine visitation that ought to make men tremble the world over.’
     “He continued: ‘Some of the places most affected by the tsunami attracted pleasure-seekers from all over the world. It has to be noted that the wave arrived on the Lord's day, the day God set apart to be observed the world over as a holy resting from all employments and recreations that are lawful on other days.’
     “The tsunami, a series of tidal waves sparked by a subsea earthquake off Sumatra, arrived on Sunday morning, the day after Christmas, in countries including Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand....
     “The 74-year-old minister, now living in the London area after spending 35 years in Stornoway, Scotland, concluded: ‘Do not worldliness, materialism, hedonism, uncleanness, and pleasure-seeking characterize our own generation to a great extent and does not this solemn visitation in providence reminds us that He remains the same God still? God is no idle spectator of what is happening here in time and treats men with the sharpness and severity in order that they may know their vices.’" World New Daily, Article: Sabbath-breaking 'caused tsunami', Christian minister calls disaster 'divine visitation' on Lord's Day, Posted: February 13, 2005, 4:00 p.m. Eastern © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com at http://www.wnd.com/2005/02/28902/, (accessed 9-8-16).

     After major calamities fill the land and are being viewed as judgments from God because Sunday is not kept holy, then the next event to occur is:

Event #3 – People cry out for Sunday laws.

     “The same masterful mind that plotted against the faithful in ages past is still seeking to rid the earth of those who fear God and obey His law. Satan will excite indignation against the humble minority who conscientiously refuse to accept popular customs and traditions. Men of position and reputation will join with the lawless and the vile to take counsel against the people of God. Wealth, genius, education, will combine to cover them with contempt. Persecuting rulers, ministers, and church members will conspire against them. With voice and pen, by boasts, threats, and ridicule, they will seek to overthrow their faith. By false representations and angry appeals they will stir up the passions of the people. Not having a "Thus saith the Scriptures" to bring against the advocates of the Bible Sabbath, they will resort to oppressive enactments to supply the lack. To secure popularity and patronage, legislators will yield to the demand for a Sunday law.” Testimonies, vol 5, p 450-451.

     Now there are multitudes of voices already publicly calling for Sunday legleslation – from the Pope, all the way down to common people!

     Pope John Paul II sent out an "Apostolic Letter" to the various Nations and peoples of the world admonishing and encouraging them to honor and respect Sunday as a sacred worship day!  In this letter, the Pope even urged fellow Catholics to "strive to insure that civil legislation respects their duty to keep Sunday holy," and that "the State must guarantee" Sunday rest. Dies Domini, July 7, 1998.

     Pope Benedict XVI also exalted Sunday worship over 16 times in just his first 3 years in papal office!  And the current Pope is also active in promoting Sunday worship and legislation.  But the Popes of Catholicism are not the only ones active in promoting Sunday worship.
     "We, the undersigned ministers and Christian workers [representing the Presbyterian, Baptist, and Methodist churches], appeal to the Christian Community...to protect the Lord's Day by using it as a time for worship and service to the Lord Jesus Christ." Handout entitled, "An Open Letter to the Christian Community", Brandon, IL., 1988.

     We know that these calls for Sunday exaltation will continue on, especially as more calamities of sea, land and air occur!

     After people begin to cry out for Sunday laws to be passed, then the next event to occur is:

Event #4 – Secular Sunday Legislation locally passed or enforced in various Countries, States, Districts and Cities.

     “Satan puts his interpretation upon events, and they think, as he would have them, that the calamities which fill the land are a result of Sunday-breaking. Thinking to appease the wrath of God, these influential men make laws enforcing Sunday observance. They think that by exalting this false rest day higher and still higher, compelling obedience to the Sunday law, the spurious sabbath, they are doing God service. Those who honor God by observing the true Sabbath are looked upon as disloyal to God, when it is really those who thus regard them who are themselves disloyal because they are trampling under foot the Sabbath originated in Eden.” Manuscript Releases, vol 10, p 239.

     Dear ones, did you know that there are already Countries who have passed Sunday legislation in their nations?  The countries of Austria, Australia, Canada, Croatia, England [with SDA support], Fiji, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Slovenia, etc., already have Sunday laws in various forms.  Even in the United States of America there are already various forms of Sunday legislation: all State and Federal Governmental offices and agencies are closed on Sunday; and the following States already have Sunday (Blue) Laws: Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and West Virginia!

     Now what occurs after Secular Sunday Laws are being locally passed or enforced in various Countries, States, Districts and Cities?  This is what we will discover in our next Newsletter, and it has to do with evil spirits!


     We sincerely thank and appreciate your continued prayers and support during this past year.  Throughout 2016 the Lord has continued to bless this Ministry, even though enemies are ceaselessly attacking.  We have 6 full-time foreign workers in 6 different Countries.  Our present truth materials continue to be mailed out both locally and internationally, as well as being freely available on our 2 websites.  Some of these materials are already translated into the languages of Afrikaans, Chinese, Dutch, Fijian, French, Indian (Tamil, Hindi, Kannadam dialects), Kenyan, Papua New Guinean, Philippine (Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilonggo dialects), Romanian, Spanish, Tanzanian, Ugandan, Zambian, and Zimbabwean.  Free Bible Studies continue to be received and completed.  Our Home Church continues to conduct weekly services over the Internet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, and every Sabbath morning.  Also, as of this date, God has mercifully allowed us to print over 16 million pages of present truth literature!  Many baptisms have resulted from all of these outreach methods.  And MAY GOD BE PRAISED FOR HIS MERCIFUL KINDNESS AND BLESSINGS!!  
     Without the Lord’s blessings and help, this Ministry would cease to exist.  And without your continued prayers, help and encouraging support, this Ministry, along with our workers around the world, would be seriously curtailed in reaching out with the present truth!  Throughout this new year we prayerfully ask that you remember this Ministry in your thoughts, prayers, and support.  And especially remember that you have a share in each and every precious soul won to the Lord through this Ministry work!

     As we mentioned in our last Newsletter, during those important times when our people need to be alerted to a vital issue, we will be sure to issue our Newsletters to keep them informed.  Well, there is just such a vital issue that our Remnant people need to be aware of, and that is the sequence of major events to take place from now until the end of sin.  So beginning with this issue, and continuing until we finish it, we will be alerting our readers to each of these events so they may know what is coming when, and thus can be ready and prepared to meet it before it occurs.  And may God richly bless with you with this vital preparatory information.

     In the past 6 months the Lord is continuing to bless our TrueChurchofGod.info website, and December was our best month yet!

     “Let There Be Light" Ministries is not using your support to build itself up into a kingdom, nor are we trying to acquire expensive video, TV or shortwave facilities.  But we are trying to spread the truth as quickly and economically as possible.  Please also know that you have played an important part in helping spread the Present Truth into various parts of this world, including through the printed page, through the living full-time workers and ministers we sponsor, and also through our websites on the internet.  This is how the Loud Cry of the third angel will be spread, and is now being spread!  If the Lord impresses you to help in these endeavors, your donations and prayers will be greatly appreciated, and not just by this Ministry.  MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS YOU!


     "Let There Be Light" Ministries is committed to the spreading of the full present truth gospel message worldwide, and has been doing so since 1986.  This Ministry has operating expenses covering the areas of: printing, publishing, and writing of present truth books, booklets, tracts, and other literature; DVD, video and audio taping, production, and distribution; supporting several ministers and workers in foreign Countries; mail order – both domestic and foreign; traveling to hold meetings – both locally, nationally, and internationally; answering correspondence and questions regarding the message of truth; offering National and International Bible studies; sending free present truth literature to contacts in many poor Countries; etc.
     Your gracious prayers and support is greatly appreciated and needed.  Without the Lord's guidance, blessings, and your support, this Ministry could not continue to reach out worldwide with the precious message of Revelation 14:6-12 & 18:1-5.

     May our God and Saviour continue to lead and guide all those who have helped us reach souls who sit in darkness with the precious light of gospel truth.  May our supporters remember that they share in each and every soul who has been reached by this Ministry and converted to the Lord and His present truth!


     We are currently supporting several workers in many different Countries on a monthly basis.  We check into the economy of each area and supply a base support which is adequate depending on their situation, but not extravagant.  This base support is to ensure that the monthly needs of each worker and family is met for that month so that the worker may devote full time to the ministry work.  In addition to this, we are sending extra materials for evangelism, and money for printing, publishing, holding meetings, traveling, and other necessary areas in spreading the Present Truth in their Country.  And as the work extends, especially will the expenses for evangelism expand.  Whatever you can send to help in this necessary and vital area is greatly appreciated.
     The work of spreading God's present truth is not to be limited, but must extend world-wide to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people before our Saviour can come (Matthew 24:14).  What better way of spreading the Present Truth Gospel than by having workers who speak the native language, who reside in that particular Country, who can live and preach the truth, visit the interests in their homes, and spread the printed truth translated into their native language!
     "Our publications should be printed in other languages, that foreign nations may be reached.  Much can be done through the medium of the press, but still more can be accomplished if the influence of the living preacher goes with our publications....The Lord has moved upon men of other tongues and has brought them under the influence of the truth, that they might be qualified to labor in His cause." Testimonies, vol 3, p 204-205.

     Please financially help us to continue supporting our current ministers and workers on a consistent basis, so that the spreading of the truth will not be interrupted but can quickly lighten this dark world with the glory of God.

     "Every opportunity should be improved to extend the truth to other nations.  This will be attended with considerable expense, but expense should in no case hinder the performance of this work.  Means are of value only as they are used to advance the interest of the kingdom of God.  The Lord has lent men means for this very purpose, to use in sending the truth to their fellow men."  Testimonies, vol 3, p 208.

     Blessed Sabbath in fellowship my dear brethren...Simplicity is the secret to seeing things clearly. A saint does not think clearly until a long time passes, but a saint ought to see clearly without any difficulty. You cannot think through spiritual confusion to make things clear: To make things clear you must obey (God). In intellectual matters you can think things out, but in spiritual matters you will only think yourself into further wandering thoughts and more confusion....
     Bring all your "arguments and…every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" regarding the matter, and every thing will become as clear as daylight to you (2 Corinthians 10:5…Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ)....(see Matthew 11:25…At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.”)  Even the very smallest thing that we allow in our lives that is not under the control of the Holy Spirit is completely sufficient to account for spiritual confusion, and spending all of our time thinking about it will still never, never make it clear. Spiritual confusion can only be conquered through obedience. As soon as we obey, we have discernment. This is humiliating, because when we are confused we know that the reason lies in the state of our mind. But when our natural power of sight is devoted and submitted in obedience to the Holy Spirit, it becomes the very power by which we perceive God's will, and our entire life is kept in simplicity. (2 Corinthians 11:3…But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.)...
     The Beatitudes describe the quality of life God intended for humanity from the beginning--a life of blessing. The word blessed can also be translated happy, but it is something more than an emotion. The closer we come to Jesus' standards, the more we experience the blessing of God. (see..Matthew 5:3-10)....
Yours truly at work in your vineyard…God is love.  B.D., Mexico.

     Good day and greetings in Jesus Name brother Rob, my name is ____.  I used to be in Nicks room since about 2005, give or take a penny or two, and I always loved hearing you speak. But since you two separated and went your separate ways I'm so happy once again that the Lord has led me to your room!...
     I wish you and your family a happy new year coming up, and once again I'm a firm believer that God has a purpose for all things....
God bless.  Hugs and love, S.S., Internet.

     You must know I haven't been well. I have heart disease and been having few problems, plus had another biopsy but it turned out benign. Thank the Lord. I'm not discouraged. Then I was in a serious car accident...and got rear ended pretty hard. But chiropractor has me back to normal. I think the enemy was trying to discourage me, but he failed.
S.P., WA.

     Thank you so much Brother Sessler.  Please continue to pray for [us all]...Pray that the Holy Spirit bring us to where our Lord needs us to be and give spiritual wisdom and discernment. I am very excited to be participating in the Women's Studies on Monday (evenings beginning at 5:30 pm Pacific, or 8:30 pm Eastern). Love you both. I am so blessed to have a wonderful Christian family.
S.C., Internet.

     Hi Brother Bob!
     Thank you so much for your prayers. You are always in ours as well. I'm so glad that you and sister Michelle are our brother and sister too. You don't know how much your life, personality and walk with God helps influence us to work harder to be more Christlike. I don't know if mom or ___ told you but I was able to pass the training week in ____ and now I'm on a 3 month probationary period. Please keep us in prayer that these months fly by fast and that I do well. Thank you for your love, thoughts and prayer.
God Bless, S.T., Internet.



(Combination of 7 letters) Dear Brother,
     Though I have not written for about two months now we are fine. The Lord is blessing our revival that began early this year. We've had several meetings together and we praise God for that. But every success comes with challenges though we can hesitate to go forward for we've come to learn that at every advance step Satan contends every inch of ground - GC 395-6....
     Indeed, we had a very invigorating camp meeting at ____. It was well attended with brethren ____, ____ and ____ (the latter two with part of their families) from Uganda; and ____ and ____ from Tanzania.  Brother ____ gave presentations on Righteousness by Faith, ____ Health, ____ Church History, ____ God's Character in light of the Third Angel's Message, ____ Prophecy, and myself the Sanctuary. Brother ____ from Uganda could not attend as we were informed he was unwell.
     We surely thought Brother ____ could attend even for Sabbath, but unfortunately he didn't. However, I did him a text on Friday inviting him to yet another camp we have in ____ at ____. We hope he will find time as I e-mailed him on Monday again on the same.  Be with us in prayers for this camp too. We agreed with ____ to join us again....
     The old year has gone forever with its burdens whether good or bad. However, as I look back into the events of the year already gone, all I can say is Ebenezer for the Lord’s good hand in the guidance of all things to His glory. He brought us into new found unity which saw us go through programs as a united front. Especially to be noted were ____ camp meeting in April, Tanzania, ____ and ____ camp meetings in August and ____ and ____ camp meetings in December. In all this there was manifested the (unity) we used to enjoy way back before 2004-2006 crises. All we are praying for is that as the enemy seeks to bring his hosts to ecumenical unity, the Lord will also shower us with spiritual grace to bring us into even more closer working unity among all His people.
     Hopefully the Lord will grant that there comes in more means to enable meet(ing) the many calls there are now and anticipates to becoming.
     May I also at this time inform you that the one ____ you forwarded his mail to me has been met. Become from near ____'s home. I shared the information with him and he went there today and found them in church celebrating new year. They agreed that we meet in the near future and share more. But they are Sunday keepers. My prayer is that God might grant them to see light of the Third Angel when we shall meet. Please do join us in this prayer....(And) We call upon all to pray for such souls....
     The year last ended well with a camp meeting at ____ bringing together almost 100 campers on ground and about 250 on Sabbath coming our various congregations and others from mainstream SDA with others from the Protestant churches. However, it will take much prayers and perseverance to keep up the faith as trials thicken....
     In regards to my personal strength and courage, all I can say is, praise the Lord, Ebenezer, for were it not for His bountiful care and sustenance I could never have come this far. I believe He who started the good work in me will keep it to the day of perfection (Phil.1:6; Jude 24). My hope is as strong as ever that the Lord will lead us through....
     We are generally fine, except Brother ____ had a bout of Malaria last week, but he's now fine. We are enjoying the fresh working environment here an hope to see great things of God. For the first time since 2005, we shall have a joint camp meeting at ____....Brethren ____, ____ and ____ will be ministering there. You remember the two centres ministry helped secure pieces of property and put up structures for worship? Praise God for His miracle working power.
     Brother ____ also has been conducting studies with some Adventist groups in Western and it appears it is bearing fruits. One associate pastor made a decision for the present truth. Praise God....
B.I., Kenya.


Greetings Bob & Michelle Sessler,
     I am very sorry for been kept silent for a while. Have been away from home into the high mountain villages for a month and after my long trip I have arrived home with sickness and admitted in the hospital for 17 days. Right away I am recovered and back to the good health condition.
     I would like to thank you very much for yours continues support in ministry. Your timely support always keep boosting me up to share the wonderful news about the love of Christ and His goodness.
     Satan is still got angry with us and trying all his effort to hinder the work of the Lord. My laptop was blown up and after a week my phone was damaged by heavy rain so it obstructs the communication line. I lost few of my important documents from the damage computer but kept some in my hard drive....
     With that, again thank so much for your support and may our good Lord be with you and all.
Cheer, B.K., PNG.


(Combination of 4 letters) Dear Bro Bob,
     3 John 2....
     Our tent effort and the camp meeting has just ended and all went well by God's grace, help and blessings. First with the tent effort that we held in ____, ____, He blessed our efforts there. We did house to house visitation, invitation and Bible study during the day, and public presentation of both health and gospel message during the night at the plaza, but before these we first gave lecture for the children every afternoon before the health and gospel presentation. These all happened with the help and united effort of some of our ministers and missionaries here in ____ and ____ region. After a week of the tent effort, some of us stayed one more weeks in the place to give follow ups with those interests, while some do their task preparation for the camp meeting. During our camp meeting, those interests attended the camp meeting too.
     God blessed also our camp meeting, for we felt His presence and we were blessed by the messages that God sent through His messengers. We were all blessed. We all went home feel blessed and bounded by deeper love for our families and brethren. The Lord really works miraculously for He provided all our needs, both for the food of all the brethren and for their fares and for everything physical and spiritual needs.
     At the end of the camp meeting, 20 souls decided to be baptized and accept Jesus also as their personal Saviour. Praise, honor and glory be to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. May God continue to help these souls to be more closer to Him, and to use them also in the spreading of His truth....
     I am so sorry for not replying to your letter soon. I just read it. I wasn't able to open my emails as often as I can because of my busy schedule. As of now, we are busy in establishing in the faith those new converts and new members which are the fruits of the recent tent efforts that we did in ____ and ____ last September and December respectively. And also while we are doing it, we still continue doing house to house visitation and Bible studies for the unbelievers and also believers in these areas.
     Bro Bob, thank God that we were able to built simple houses of worship in ____ and ____. Since the Lord is progressing His work and adding many new members to His church, we can’t handle anymore the Sabbath worships in houses but the brethren need much larger areas for their convenience and for much solemn type of worship. As of now, we had already 4 houses of worship, including the one that we first built in ____ and the one that we are renting here in ____. We also wanted to build even a simple building here in ____, to free us from renting monthly, but we have no lot or land to build it. We are praying that God will give us land where to build His church here (according to His will) because we have a lot of members here and a young missionaries who also needed a place to stay.
     As of now bro Bob, we have already recognized along with the church, 3 young missionaries who are dedicated to the work of the Lord. The church is helping them financially although in small amount, but hopefully as the church progress the Lord also will bless them. As the work of the Lord expands, we can’t carry it on our own, we needed added help especially from these young laborers who are strong both spiritually and physically.
     You know bro Bob, the work here in the Philippines are continuing to progress and are expanding. We saw the blessings and fruit of doing tent effort, it really awakens the interest of the people and as we continue laboring for them, the Lord converted them to the truth. And you know as we see thus, our burden is getting heavy and we needed more help to lift these burdens. And because of these, bro ____ is thinking to go back to the work of the Lord full time, but the only thing that hinders him is our financial, that is why he work for our needs and also for other people that depends on him.  But his heart is really in the work of the Lord, he wanted to see it progress, that is why, he continue laboring for the people and for the church. Most of the time, he went with me with my schedules of Bible studies and visitation. We know bro Bob that the end is very near and we need to work zealously for the salvation of the souls. We hope and pray that the Lord will open a way for us according to His will....
     Bro Bob, thank you so much for your thoughts and concerns for us especially for the work of the Lord here. Your prayers, counsel and words of encouragement is really a great blessing, encouragement, and strength for us to continue to do the work of the Lord, since the enemy is also working through trials from outside and even from our own brethren to hinder and discourage us.  But praise the Lord and I thank Him that He did give us strength enough to face it and in not allowing us to fall. I am appealing to you bro Bob, to please always include us in your prayers especially our work here....
     We had just finished the two weeks training for the young people of ____ and ____ region. We held it in ____, ____. We had invited our ministers and workers from ____ Region to help us in the training of these youth. For the first week, there are pillar and doctrinal studies, medical/health lecture, practical lesson for personal behavior, there are also music lessons such as piano, guitar, flute and voice. On the second week, we taught them how to conduct Bible studies to houses on the morning and we did it actual on the afternoon, they went two by two's conducting house to house Bible studies. There are 32 young people who undergo to this training. These young people would be a great help for the cause of God if they are trained to work for God, and the work of God will soon finished and Jesus will come and we can go home to heaven.
     You know bro Bob during this training, we were able to share to the group of Born Again Christians. For more than a week we were able to give them series of Bible studies everyday, and they were enlighten. We are happy to see them so eager and hunger to know the truth. And they accepted the Sabbath already as the true day of rest and worship. Last Sabbath, they already attended on our Sabbath worship, and some of them are planning to be baptize. Thank God for the power of the Holy Spirit that these souls were convicted of the truth. We were able to meet also their pastor and elder and share with them especially the Sabbath. Although at first they are fighting the truth especially the Sabbath but the truth is clear and they can’t rebut it. Tomorrow, we will go back there to spend Sabbath with them....
     We are happy that God are continuing to bless and uniting the church here and helping us to organize it according to His will. After the camp meeting in ____, we went back to our regular schedule here in our Region. We continue doing our house to house labor, giving Bible studies, helping the sick, training the young people and visiting different churches here. We have another new six members added to the church now. They are regularly attending our Sabbaths for a month now and we still have a weekly regular Bible studies with them. Also bro Bob, every Sunday we gather all the students and young people here only in ____ church, teaching and training them and preparing them for our next plan of work this coming August....
     We are planning that this August, every Sunday we will bring this youth to the field for house to house labor and tracts distribution, using their ability and what they learned either as gospel and medical missionaries. We are also planning to preach publicly either in the market or in the park or where there many people. while the youth are distributing tracts. That's why we are soliciting and raising funds for what we need such as speaker, microphone, tracts and whatever materials that we will be needing. Our young people are willing to help us to do God's work, we are just lack of means but we believe that God will provide for His work.
     Also Bro Bob, please include our plan of opening a Vegetarian Health Food Store. We are already renting a place, we are just renovating it now, and waiting for the added capital. I know that this will open door to reach people in another class and will be a help to those brethren who have no job. So I ask you to please pray for all our plan and work here. I will update you the progress of our work here next time.
     Till here for now bro bob. God bless you always!
In Christ, s.b., Philippines.


(Combination of 3 letters) Dear Elder Sessler,
     Christian greetings from this way.  It has been the longest time that I have communicated that side, I have been ill to extend of passing blood in the urine, thanks for prayers am recovering. All in all the Lord has been using different ways by brothers and Sisters to reach out. I had printed several tracts which has added great helping tool to the out projects.
     We had an effort at ____ and another one and ____ District which has just on 23rd January 2016. Lord has added to His Church new members. Because of health difficult I was not able to accomplish the different calls.
     Thanks a lot for the support that makes us resourceful in the ministry of our blessed Saviour, and your prayers that help us behind the curtains “At the sound of fervent prayer, Satan's whole host trembles....{Counsels for the Church 319.3}...
     The Lord still gives us mercy and grace to share in word and tract evangelism for, He is loving and longing for the sons and daughters of men....
     God of mercy saved a young man who had been practicing as Witch Doctor. He met God in Sudan, (and) in his testimony he says he was waiting for some money to go and kill a certain woman, but from nowhere he got the conviction that he must join church.  He moved from church to church, he got some place or churches were some of the Pastors were their clients who would always seek for powers to bewitch souls to their Churches, until he rested 1st with SDA.  But whilst there he discovered that there was something wrong with them too.  By God’s grace he was able to get in contact with me the very moments because of financial troubles the enemy of souls wanted to take him back to his old ways. I encouraged him, connected him to brother ____...He needs help to help himself. I have tried to help by God’s grace, but it is not able to fully sustain him.  Any help will be highly appreciated....
     Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.” The gap between the rich and the poor is widening to the very extend in that one family I visited in ____ a wealthy person had encroached on this families land and they were fearing to approach him.  By God grace we visited with one the son’s and the Lord gave us favor before these family.  (We) opened the Scriptures (and) thanks be to God (as) He opened their hearts to truth of the Bible about stewardship of every property....
     During the another night talked with parents about their families (and) what is required of them by the Lord of all the earth....Youths who follow their own impulse and inclinations can have no real happiness in this life, and in the end will lose eternal life. Sympathy for the unpromising child - with patience and kindness, tender sympathy. We trusted God who can change hearts. I told parents to cry for their children to the Lord so that He may do for that which no one else can do for them....Families need more of His saving grace, the families tradition is seriously threatened it is on the edge of precipice, unless the true gospel workers are sent out soon the whole land will be like Sodom and Gomorrah.  They are recruiting young people in homosexuality/lesbianism money from the Western world with strings attached.  Churches are (being) swept away, abominations after abominations are given free lee(way) on media houses.  Every radio and television station that you tune in has either Witch Doctors or false prophets/pastors (and) they have become icons of our population....
     Once again thanks for the support and prayers, greetings to your family and Church. God Bless you.
Yours in the Blessed Saviour, B.K., Uganda.


My Dearest elder and br. in faith,
     I want write and appreciate for the great guidance you had provided for the my family and my church in this country. Truly the separation message came to Zambia from you and through our house....
     Elder bob, am very positive to inform you that you has been led by the Spirit of God throughout to bring about the truth in my house and the entire country through to the whole southern Africa. Upto now I have proof to tell you that your crown will shine with a lot of stars. But amiss that some of the first people who received these truths have left it and this has given me a lot of worries especially that even a member of my household has done so. My heart is bleeding....
     It is good to hear from you and am praying for you too. The message is still spreading and new souls are accepting the separation messages....God bless till next mail.
Your brother with a bleeding heart, B.W., Zambia.


     I always thank God because of you when I consider that it is not my right to receive such a precious support, but only by His grace.  It is only by the goodness of God, that He does not consider to deal with me according to my wickedness. He continues to bless you and your efforts to keep supporting us.
     Since March 19, 2006, by the grace of God, I managed to create group chat which comprises most of the brethren in southern Africa. In fact there are 6 different nations represented in this group chat. Some nations like Jamaica and Britain are also represented. I am currently working on to include other nations like Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, etc.
     Everyday we are able to communicate and sharing messages of the present time. We have also properly organized ourselves to start learning the books of Daniel and Revelation. We are currently on Daniel chapter two.
     This group chat is serving one of the greatest purposes of uniting the brethren together and promoting that unity of faith that should characterize the Remnant people to say the least....
