Scenario  of  Events  in  These  Last  Days, part 2

     Last time we discovered that the Supreme Court of the United States has already heard legal arguments about Sunday laws being unconstitutional from different legal angles, and it has already decided that Sunday laws are constitutional – not just once, but in 4 different cases on May 29, 1961!  This means that there does not need to be a lengthy drawn out legal process before Sunday laws can be enforced today!
     We then understood that there are 30 different events brought out in 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.
     We then began investigating into these scenario of events, beginning with the first.  We learned from God’s word that the Latter Rain falls and the Loud Cry message goes forth before the Sunday Law is passed, and that the Latter Rain is already falling and the Loud Cry is already going forth today.
     We then discovered that the next event in the scenario of these last days was that major calamities fill the land and are viewed as being judgments from God because Sunday is not kept holy.  And we then saw that people are already publicly declaring this.

     We also investigated into the third event of where people publicly cry out for Sunday laws to be passed, and then saw that people are already calling for Sunday legislation today, from the Pope all the way down to the common workman!
     And then we learned that the forth event of secular Sunday legislation locally being passed or enforced in various Countries, States, Districts and Cities, is also already occurring.  We saw that the countries of Austria, Australia, Canada, Croatia, England [with SDA support], Fiji, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Slovenia, have already passed Sunday legislation.  And we also saw that in the United States of America there are already various forms of Sunday legislation: such as all State and Federal Governmental offices and agencies are closed on Sunday; and the following States 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!

     So we discovered that we are already into the first 4 events in the scenario of these last days, and that each of the remaining 26 events would occur in successive order until completely fulfilled.

     Now what occurs after the fourth event of Secular Sunday Laws being locally passed or enforced in various Countries, States, Districts and Cities?

Event #5 – Evil spirits appear, miracles are performed, and people are told to obey the Sunday Laws and to keep Sunday holy.

     “The miracle-working power manifested through spiritualism will exert its influence against those who choose to obey God rather than men. Communications from the spirits will declare that God has sent them to convince the rejecters of Sunday of their error, affirming that the laws of the land should be obeyed as the law of God. They will lament the great wickedness in the world and second the testimony of religious teachers that the degraded state of morals is caused by the desecration of Sunday. Great will be the indignation excited against all who refuse to accept their testimony.” Great Controversy, p 590-591.  

     “...those who persist in keeping holy the seventh day...refusing to listen to his [Satan’s] angels sent to them with light and truth.” Great Controversy, p 624.

     “The wicked...declared that they had the truth, that miracles were among them, that angels from heaven talked with them and walked with them, that great power and signs and wonders were performed among them”. Selected Messages, book 3, p 427-428.

     So first evil spirits communicate to people through spiritualism about Sunday worship, but then soon afterwards they will physically appear as angels from heaven and try to personally convince Sabbath keepers to change to Sunday worship!

     Now after evil spirits communicate that people are to keep Sunday holy, then the next event to occur is:

Event #6 – Calamities increase, become more intense, and blame is cast upon Sabbath-keepers.

     “In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. "The earth mourneth and fadeth away," "the haughty people . . . do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant." Isaiah 24:4, 5.

     “And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils. The class that have provoked the displeasure of Heaven will charge all their troubles upon those whose obedience to God's commandments is a perpetual reproof to transgressors. It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity....

     “Those who honor the Bible Sabbath will be denounced as enemies of law and order, as breaking down the moral restraints of society, causing anarchy and corruption, and calling down the judgments of God upon the earth. Their conscientious scruples will be pronounced obstinacy, stubbornness, and contempt of authority. They will be accused of disaffection toward the government. Ministers who deny the obligation of the divine law will present from the pulpit the duty of yielding obedience to the civil authorities as ordained of God. In legislative halls and courts of justice, commandment keepers will be misrepresented and condemned. A false coloring will be given to their words; the worst construction will be put upon their motives.” Great Controversy, p 589-592.

     “These calamities will increase more and more, one disaster will follow close upon the heels of another; and those who make void the law of God will point to the few who are keeping the Sabbath of the fourth commandment as the ones who are bringing wrath upon the world. This falsehood is Satan's device that he may ensnare the unwary.” Signs of the Times, January 17, 1884, par 12.  

     “As men depart further and further from God, Satan is permitted to have power over the children of disobedience. He hurls destruction among men. There is calamity by land and sea. Property and life are destroyed by fire and flood. Satan resolves to charge this upon those who refuse to bow to the idol [Sunday] which he has set up. His agents point to Seventh-day Adventists [and other Sabbath-keepers] as the cause of the trouble. "These people stand out in defiance of law," they say. "They desecrate Sunday. Were they compelled to obey the law for Sunday observance, there would be a cessation of these terrible judgments." Review and Herald, July 16, 1901, par 5.

     Now after calamities increase and blame is cast upon Sabbath-keepers, then the next event to occur is:

Event #7 – National Law is passed to keep only Sunday holy and is enforced in measure.

     “The movement for Sunday enforcement becomes more bold and decided. The law is invoked against commandment-keepers. They are threatened with fines and imprisonment, and some are offered positions of influence, and other rewards and advantages, as inducements to renounce their faith. But their steadfast answer is, "Show us from the word of God our error,"--the same plea that was made by Luther under similar circumstances. Those who are arraigned before the courts make a strong vindication of the truth, and some who hear them are led to take their stand to keep all the commandments of God. Thus light is brought before thousands who otherwise would know nothing of these truths.
     “Conscientious obedience to the word of God will be treated as rebellion. Blinded by Satan, the parent will exercise harshness and severity toward the believing child; the master or mistress will oppress the commandment-keeping servant. Affection will be alienated; children will be disinherited, and driven from home. The words of Paul will be literally fulfilled, "All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." [2 Timothy 3:12.] As the defenders of truth refuse to honor the Sunday-Sabbath, some of them will be thrust into prison, some will be exiled, some will be treated as slaves. To human wisdom, all this now seems impossible; but as the restraining Spirit of God shall be withdrawn from men, and they shall be under the control of Satan, who hates the divine precepts, there will be strange developments. The heart can be very cruel when God's fear and love are removed.” Spirit fo Prophecy, vol 4, p 425-426.

     What occurs after the National Sunday law is passed?

Event #8 – Satan appears personating Christ.

     “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-14.
     “Disguised as an angel of light, he [Satan] will walk the earth as a wonder-worker. In beautiful language he will present lofty sentiments. Good words will be spoken by him, and good deeds performed. Christ will be personified, but on one point there will be a marked distinction. Satan will turn the people from the law of God. Notwithstanding this, so well will he counterfeit righteousness, that if it were possible, he would deceive the very elect. Crowned heads, presidents, rulers in high places, will bow to his false theories.” Review and Herald, August 17, 1897, par 14.

     “As the crowning act in the great drama of deception, Satan himself will personate Christ. The church has long professed to look to the Saviour's advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come. In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. Revelation 1:13-15. The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air: "Christ has come! Christ has come!" The people prostrate themselves in adoration before him, while he lifts up his hands and pronounces a blessing upon them, as Christ blessed His disciples when He was upon the earth. His voice is soft and subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then, in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed. He declares that those who persist in keeping holy the seventh day are blaspheming his name by refusing to listen to his angels sent to them with light and truth. This is the strong, almost overmastering delusion.” Great Controversy, p 624.

     “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Behold, I have told you before.  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.  For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:24-27.

     So you not only have evil angels physically appearing as heavenly angels telling people to keep Sunday holy, but you also have Satan himself appearing as Jesus Christ telling people the same thing!  And this is an overwhelming delusion that gradually sweeps all the wicked into receiving the Mark of the Beast!
     “And then shall that Wicked be revealed...the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth”. 2 Thessalonians 2:8-13.

     Now when Lucifer personates Jesus, what are God’s people going to have to do?
     “He [Satan] will come personating Jesus Christ, working mighty miracles; and men will fall down and worship him as Jesus Christ. We shall be commanded to worship this being, whom the world will glorify as Christ. What shall we do?--Tell them that Christ has warned us against just such a foe, who is man's worst enemy, yet who claims to be God; and that when Christ shall make his appearance, it will be with power and great glory, accompanied by ten thousand times ten thousand angels and thousands of thousands; and that when he shall come, we shall know his voice.” Review and Herald, December 18, 1888, par 25.  

     So God’s people are going to have to choose to stand up for the real Christ and His truth, and tell the others that when Jesus Christ of Nazareth – the Living Son of God – comes the second time, it will be with power and great glory, with ten thousand times ten thousands of angels; and every person around the world will see Him come at the same time (see Matthew 24:30-31; Jude 14-15; Revelation 5:11, 1:7).  But in addition to this we will also have to proclaim that this being now claiming to be Jesus Christ on the earth is not the real Christ, but he is Lucifer or Satan or the Devil – the foe of God and man's worst enemy!  In doing these two things God’s people will risk everything!

     Dear ones, are you prepared to risk it all in order confess God before man?  Are you willing to stand for God and His truth and expose Satan and his deceptions even though in doing so you jeapordize your very life, as well as the lives of every one closely connected with you?
     “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33.

     Now what will occur when God's people proclaim that this "majestic being of dazzling brightness" whom the majority of the world are worshiping and following as Jesus, is really Satan--the enemy of God and man?  A few people will listen, but the majority will become incensed and enraged, and with furious zeal they will hunt down and persecute God's people and seek to rid them from the earth.
     But dear ones do not worry: just cling to Jesus and stand fast in the faith and be of good courage, because God will never forsake you!
     “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9.

     Now after Satan impersonates Christ, then the next event to occur is:

Event #9 – Sunday Laws become universal or world-wide.

     “As America, the land of religious liberty, shall unite with the papacy in forcing the conscience and compelling men to honor the false sabbath, the people of every country on the globe will be led to follow her example.” Testimonies, vol 6, p 18.

     “Fallen angels upon earth form confederations with evil men. In this age antichrist (Satan) will appear as the true Christ, and then the law of God will be fully made void in the nations of our world. Rebellion against God's holy law will be fully ripe. But the true leader of all this rebellion is Satan clothed as an angel of light. Men will be deceived and will exalt him to the place of God, and deify him.” Testimonies to Ministers, p 62.

     “...angels from heaven talked with them [the wicked] and walked with them, that great power and signs and wonders were performed among them, and that this was the temporal millennium that they had been expecting so long. The whole world was converted and in harmony with the Sunday law.” Selected Messages, book 3, p 427-428.

     So we have the Beast or Catholicism, the Image of the Beast or apostate Protestantism, all the Governments of all the nations of the world, all the religions and societies of the entire world, and you have supposed angels from heaven and the supposed Christ returned to earth all saying the same thing: that every person on the earth must comply with the command and law to keep Sunday holy, and no one will be allowed to compromise in order to try and avoid the consequences!

     Now after a world-wide Sunday law is passed, then what event occurs next?

Event #10 – No buying or selling without the Mark of the Beast.

     “The civil power is called to the aid of the Church in persecuting those who keep holy the seventh day. The Church and the world are united in trampling upon God's commandments, and those who obey these commandments they threaten with death. John declares, "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." The decree goes forth that no man shall be allowed to buy or sell save he that has the mark or the number of the Beast.” Review and Herald, July 16, 1901, par 6.  

     “And he [Lamb-like Beast or the USA] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17.

     "Not only are men not to work with their hands on Sunday, but with their minds are they to acknowledge Sunday as the Sabbath.” Pamphlet #86, p 6-7.

     Now after the decree of no buying or selling without the Mark of the Beast occurs, then what happen next?

Event #11 – Death Decree is issued.

     “The powers of earth, uniting to war against the commandments of God, will decree that "all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond" (Revelation 13:16), shall conform to the customs of the church by the observance of the false sabbath. All who refuse compliance will be visited with civil penalties, and it will finally be declared that they are deserving of death.” Great Controversy, p 604.

     “In the last conflict the Sabbath will be the special point of controversy throughout all Christendom. Secular rulers and religious leaders will unite to enforce the observance of the Sunday; and as milder measures fail, the most oppressive laws will be enacted. It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the land ought not to be tolerated, and a decree will finally be issued denouncing them as deserving of the severest punishment, and giving the people liberty, after a certain time, to put them to death.” Spirit of Prophecy, vol 4, p 444-445.

     “As Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon issued a decree that all who would not bow down and worship this image should be killed, so a proclamation will be made that all who will not reverence the Sunday institution will be punished with imprisonment and death.” Manuscript Releases, vol 14, p 91.
     “Especially will the wrath of man be aroused against those who hallow the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and at last a universal decree will denounce these as deserving of death.” Prophets and Kings, p 512.

     Now how many people will die in the Lord or will be murdered in order for the wicked to enjoy this supposed temporal millennium in peace and without continued disasters occurring one after another?  And what event occurs after the Death Decree is issued?  This is what we will discover in our next Newsletter.

     "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.

Dear pastor in Christ,
     Receive our Christian greetings from Kenya in the gracious name of our beloved Holy one the Lord Jesus Christ from whom we are forgiven and saved. I am greatly blessed and feel privileged to know you through your website, learn about your faith and your desire to serve God.
     I am an independent fellowship church group in Kenya desiring to be established in your church ministry....We need your prayers and love.  I pray that through God's Holy Spirit at work, that you shall appreciate my interest and desire that I might find a definite spiritual partnership with your church ministry.

Dear Elder Robert Sessler:
     My name is ____ from Belize. I just recently found out about your work for the cause of our Lord...I found out about this when I met Bro, ____ (doctor) and his wife Sis ____ in ____ Town here in Belize.
     It is extremely surprizing to me that I have never met any SDA here who are aware of the extremely important TRUTHS, and not even aware of your ministry. Unfortunately, I met the ____ brothers...just a few days before they left Belize....However,our acquaintance was enough for me to be introduced to new and ASTONISHING TRUTHS, especially since just prior to meeting the ____ I was already OPENNING MY EYES to many open sins and abominations hereb in the SDA church where I attend.
     I am ALREADY canvassing and bringing these TRUTHS to the brothers and sisters whom by the Spirit’s discerment I am guided to. Of course I am being very careful not to SCARE anyone.
     I really need your help and support. I need many booklets to help bring light to our sleeping virgins, please....I really need help to take these TRUTHS to our SDA brotherhood here in Belize urgently; please, please help. (Editor’s Note: Materials were mailed.)
B.J., Belize.

(Combination of 2 letters) Dear Pastor Robert Sessler...
     Pastor Robert, we have not received the News Letter for some months now. Please if it is possible, can you send me some News Letters and not without "Catholic Adventists? Many Adventist brethren are surprised when they come to know that the Seventh-day Adventist is driving towards Rome nowadays. It requires spiritual eyes to see that indeed this is happening that way.
     I have come to believe that...The General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Church is now driving towards Rome. Unless we show the brethren how this is being done, they will not know it. I pray that what your ministry and others are doing must be blessed and be protected by God, so that many people are warned in time (to) be saved.
     I would like to translate the article: "Catholic Adventists? without changing the meaning of the article so that my dear brethren here can read it in their mother tongue, if this is allowed by your ministry?....
     Glory be to God Almighty! Thank you for the permission and I ask you to keep praying for us in Malawi. I would like to inform you that, since 2003, my friends' families and mine have been separate from the main SDA church and we are called "Christ Remnant Home Church," because of the present truth which we found in your written materials. We are Seventh Day Adventists in our total trust (beliefs), but because the General Conference sues people in courts, those people who disagree with them in their current ways, we chose this name “CHRIST REMNANT HOME CHURCH" to keep (the) calm (peace).
     It's a huge task and it is not by our might, but God will fight the battle for us. We are nothing with(out) Jesus Christ. We are the living witnesses who have tested the wrath of General Conference from the year 2000. Let There Be Light Ministry has indeed worked miracles in our lives, this you don't know.
     I will continue explaining this in my next communication. Keep us in your prayers, Amen.
God bless you and ALL those who labor with you.
I am your brother in Jesus Christ's name, B.I., Malawi.

     We have been married for many years now with children and grand children - l, Mrs ____ (61) years, my husband ____ (69) years. We ever wonder what will happen to us when we die? Will we see anything? Will we feel pain? Would we go directly to Heaven, or would we stay with our body in the grave until Jesus comes?
     We read Jesus told Nicodemus that no one had ever gone into Heaven except Himself...so what about Elijah who rode the fiery chariot into Heaven, or Moses?
     What happened to Jesus when He died on the cross? Didn't He tell the thief on the cross that they would both be in Paradise that very day?
     Was it different for Old Testament people than for New Testament people once Jesus died for their sins and rose from the dead? We need Bible Truth about our subject area please, and can you provide both of us with Books to study more about God's WORD? (Editor’s Note: Materials on Death were mailed.)
D. & A.M., Nigeria.

Dear bro Rob,
     I am just so amazed at how willing people are to take your LTBL pamphlets from me. I have an assorted pile of pamphlets and people will sort through the pile and take 3 and 4 pamphlets that catch their interest.

(Combination of 3 letters) Dear brethren, 1Jn.3:1.
     Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus. We are fine here and hope you too.
     Our brethren, ____ and ____ went to ____ for camp in one of the churches you helped secure property and put up a shed for worship. It went on well. However some of the members we knew had backslidden. The camp was nevertheless fine with some members in church.
     During the same week brother ____ joined brother ____ for a weeklong effort in Western (Kenya). It has also been reported to have gone well. From 28th August through September 3 ____ in ____, ____ and myself went to ____, ____, for an effort meeting. We were later joined by ____ and ____. The meeting ended well and became a new inspiration to the host family that had almost begun to lose hope.
     Surely, it can be said that our Lord's coming is near, yea, even at the door, as we witness events portending a fearful future. Brethren let's keep one another in prayers because this is our only safeguard. Hearts have become so hardened that people are today bold enough to reject truth-filled tracts as though it was nothing big. It actually time to shed tears for those who don't have to cry for themselves.
     Brethren, be blessed for all your support both in materials as with prayers. With God's blessings if you can help secure some Bibles in vernacular languages we will really appreciate....
     As I said earlier, we shall have two major meetings in December-one in Western and another at ____. In the meantime we shall have an effort meeting in Western, ____ county, between 15th and 22nd....
     Just wanted to drop you this message that the ____ camp ended well last Sunday. I did not however attend it as I was involved in an evangelistic effort in ____. However, I'm informed it went on well. Brethren from Uganda were in attendance.
     This week we are in another camp in ____ specially designed for our youth. It is going on well and we hope to see more commitment, conversion and recommitment from the youth in preparation to sounding the loud cry wherever they will be called- in schools and colleges as might be the case. Already we are seeing some being excited as never before.
     Brethren from the Caribbean are visiting with us in this endeavour, and honestly the Lord is using them to arouse the youth. We have a brother ____, ____ and a sister ____. Surely, God is binding up the work. Praise God.
     Looking forward to seeing a better end of the camp. Pray with and for us.
Good day. B.I., Kenya.


(Combination of 3 letters) Dear Bro Bob,
     3 John 2.
     Hi! Bro Bob how are you? We hope and pray that everything goes fine with you through the help and guidance of our loving God and Saviour. As of us here bro Bob, we too are fine by God's grace and blessings.
     As of now bro Bob, we are so busy with our work here. We had opened a new field of labor where we reach and encounter another class of people. Since the time that we established and opened our vegetarian restaurant here in ____ last month for the livelihood of our brethren here, and for the purposed of reaching and helping more people especialy in educating them to eat healthy foods and healthy practices. Although from the beginning, we dont know how to start it because of financial problem, but the Lord help and provide us our needs. Though we started it so simple, rented the place in low price, and cook 2-3 different simple and healthy menu a day only, but the Lord bless it, and bring to the restaurant people like businessmen and professionals and other who are health conscious. We also meet a lot of people who are sick and who seek our help. And by God's grace, we were able to help them and share to them the knowledge we had about health. But most especially bro Bob, we are trying to bring these people to the Lord and sharing to them the truth. We are praying bro bob that more people will be reached and help through this.
     And also, although I am busy in managing the restaurant, but we still had time in doing visitation and giving Bible study outside the restaurant and in visiting and encouraging churches here. We were able to train some of our youth here and they are a big help for us and for our work that are enlarging. Every Sunday all our young people here go on house to house work, giving Bible study and tracts. One time bro Bob, there are some brethren from the group of SDARM (Seventh-day Adventist Reform Movement) who went to the restaurant and we were able to talk about our faith, and I was able to share to them what we believe. And last Sabbath they went to our church and joined us in our Sabbath worship. Hopefully bro Bob that time will come that we will unite with them since their group are not that strong now, and almost their members are gone. Just please continue to support and include us and all our work here in your prayers. We all really wanted to go home to our heavenly Father, and we need to do all our best to hasten Christ return.....
     Thank you so much bro Bob for your continuous support, especially for your encouragement. We thank God for having you as our compassionate brother, teacher and supporter for a long years now. I really appreciate the prayers and thoughts you have toward us and how much you were concern for us and for the cause of the Lord here. Brother Bob, humbly speaking, through the grace and power of God, God help us continue to fight the good fight of faith and to continue press the battle and do the work that God has bidden us do. It is really our hearts desire and our life to do His will, because we love Him who first loved us and has given His life for us.
     As of now bro Bob, we are so busy with our work here. Since we had already started and open our humble restaurant here as God wanted (us) to, I am busy in attending and reaching out (to) those people who enters in the restaurant. Here different class of people enters such as doctors, professionals who are in different fields and slowly I am sharing to them our message. I am still helping and training other brethren to do the restaurant work, so that I can do and attend other works that I needed to do in His cause. As of now, I am teaching how to manage the restaurant work, cooking lessons with the workers and training them how to reach and open to the people the message we have. But during afternoon, we (me, my husband and some other young people) do visitation, house to house work and tracts distribution, and during Sabbath we do church visitations. You know bro Bob, we are happy with the work that we have in the restaurant, because although we do not gain because we are not after that, but we are happy because we are able to help others to understand how to care for their health especially those that are sick. And a lot of people are now ready for a change. And we hope and pray that through this work and through God's help, hopefully may win many souls to Christ.
     Also Bro Bob, last Sept when other group of separated home church invited us to spend Sabbath in ____, we grant their request. I have known a lot of them in their group because we are in the same group before, before we known Grover and divide us. We are in the same church before when we were still living in ____. And what I know is that the only difference we have with them is on the light of Revelation 18, on Loud Cry and Latter Rain, for they believed that it will both happen during Sunday law only. They've been calling unity between us a long time ago, but it didn't happened because we were not able to talk. So when we went there and spent Sabbath with them, their worker and elders invited us to come back on October 8 to talk for unity between our group and their group to settle the issue of our difference. We told it to our church members here, in ____ and also to our workers and elders in ____ and ____. We pray for the will of the Lord. And we decided that we will go back there on October 8.  So it happened bro Bob, and on Oct 8, with the workers and representative from ____ and ____ and with all the elders here in ____, we went back to ____.
     When we were there, they gave us time to present the truth on Loud Cry and Latter Rain, and through the conviction of the Holy Spirit they have seen also the light on it. We know that in their hearts they understand the truth we presented. And they said that let us give them time to study it more fully and present it to their members. The Lord is really good bro Bob for He is the one that hold the reigns and leading His work. And we bring back to God the glory, praise and honor.
     And after a week, their worker called me and told me that they will come to our fellowship last Oct 29, not to speak but to listen only to us and also assure me that they will attend our camp meeting in ____ this coming Dec, since we will be having a work and camp meeting in ____...I am praying brother Bob that this will be the beginning of the unity with them. I know that they are also sincere Christians who also wanted to go to heaven. So please include them also in your prayers now. I know bro Bob that the Lord is coming so soon because He is now binding His people step by step into the platform of eternal truth and His prayers in John 17 are now happening. I believe just as what the inspiration told us that as Christ approach is nearing, He will call out and unite all His children, and we are now seeing this happening....
     We just came back from our missionary trip and now working again for some who are interested for Bible sharing here in our area and also looking for more interested. We came from ____ to visit and share with a couple who are also separated from SDA church and looking for a group. We talked and shared to them our stand and we discover that we are almost the same with what we believed, only some points to patched up. We also need to meet again those brethren who came from the group of Born Again Christian and encouraged them to continue with our stand. We also shared with some of our relatives who lives in ____, but went there to also meet us and give us time to hear the the message. And during the Sabbath, we all spent the Sabbath together in our humble church there. Thank God for the blessing of working in His vineyard.
     Also last Sabbath, we spend our Sabbath with our brethren in our new established church in ____. They also need an encouragement because they are new in the faith.
     With our work here, we meet a lot of people and we were able to open and share to them our message, first on health message and then about Sabbath. We were able also to gave them our tracts on health and Sabbath. Every Sunday, with all our young people went from town to town, doing house-to-house work and tracts distributions. We hope and pray that many souls will be enlightened with the message through the convicting power of the Holy Spirit that God may be honor and glorify. This coming Friday, we are planning to go and visit our church in an island.
     Also bro Bob, please pray for the coming tent effort and camp meeting that will be held in ____ this coming December 20 and onwards. Please also pray for us that we can go there to help our brethren there, and that God will provide us our needs and bless the work that is going to do there.
     Bro Bob, if you can help and send us again the book Great Controversy because we really needed it to give it to those people that we are sharing especially to those doctors that I am sharing with and if you can send also some of the book Steps to Christ.
     Bro Bob continue to pray for our work here that we may do it heartilly and faithfully with an eye single for God's glory. May God help us to do it more earnestly and help us to be stronger though there are a lot of thorns and trials in the way.
     God bless brother Bob!
In Christ, s.b., Philippines.


(Combination of 3 letters) Dear Elder Sessler
     Greetings from. Philippians 1:2-3: “Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.”
     Elder, the Lord has worked in ways that are not within our thinking.  One old man, a retired secretary general of co-operative society - Mr. ____ - his children made anniversary for their parent - 50 years in their marriage. I just took our books like I may have done some other several times, but thanks be God this was different because after some good time he told me he had read all the books and greatly appreciated the way they explain the truth and felt pity for the Pentecostal Church he goes for service and was calling for more books which by God’s grace I will deliver as I get them.
     We visited ____ with the purpose of talking and sharing with one young who has been taken captive by drugs and strong drinks. This stuff were driving to fighting and being thirst for pouring blood. We shared our conversion and regeneration by Christ Jesus and the only power that change sinner man in all the universe is Jesus and His word when believed. Ever since we left, Jesus has lift him and His working in him to repent and recreating a person out of the old one.
     We by the grace of God, we have reached out with the silent messenger to whosoever hath been ready to receive we have render massively. Ecclesiastic 11:5-7: “As thou knowest not what [is] the way of the spirit, [nor] how the bones [do grow] in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both [shall be] alike good. Truly the light [is] sweet, and a pleasant [thing it is] for the eyes to behold”.  With this principle of sowing the seed we have been constrained with the love Christ to heed the great commission to keep going whenever opportunity has come our ways.
     Elder a few months back where we have been holding our Sabbath meetings, it looks like we may not stay there for long, reason being some Sabbaths we get the place pad locked (and) we are forced to hold our meetings on the veranda which has a small shade, no seats, most uncomfortable.  We brave the sun and the rainy season is starting. Hopefully the purchase of Christ need not conduct our meeting that mien it may close some interested souls out. We are of the proposal that we either build iron-sheet Church from the walls to the roof or one with walls of timber and iron sheet roof this would be slightly more expensive but much better in terms of comfort. And wash rooms and pit latrine. The Church will cost about 3000/= to 3500/= US dollars and pit latrine and wash rooms around 2000/= we are able raise 10% percent, we need those whom our heavenly Father can touch to come our help even the help of the Lord. This will (be a) semi mobile Church, it is only the base that cannot be carried, but rest shall be movable.
     Elder thanks lot for earnest prayers, for serving/ministering has got several challenges, but by His grace and your prayers we enabled carry out His business.  Once again thanks to you people, standing with us financially and substantively.
     The Riso-graph is down, it may need change of the drum which is at one million Uganda shillings (about $275 US) and other things, plus labor and transport, may go one million five hundred thousand (about $415 US)....
     We were visited by a brother from Kenya, Brother ____ who was assigned to share the good news in the homes of those of my neighborhood night after night we visited, for thus neighbors had retired from their jobs shared with Muslims and SDA’s. After 3 days at my place we moved to Brother ____’s place, stayed there for two days, met some people encouraged them as it is written in Heb 10:25 - Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
     There after we set off to ____ met brother ____ and on the Sabbath.  We visited ____ University...of our country, for God in mercy hath separated students who have been learning/studying with others.  So around May of this year they made up their mind separated from the main stream SDA. They are zealous and committed young men and women (and) we thank God that He has moved upon these young men. It was a blessing to find such people in the heart of the ____ city of our country.  This is move of God for most of them come from different countries and those from Uganda come from different tribe lines, there was one from South Africa, another from Tanzania then others from Sudan....
     Brother ____ hath invited us for a Camp Meeting in Western Kenya from 9th Dec to 18th Dec 2016 and from 22nd Dec to 2nd January 2017.  These brothers have organized another Camp-meeting in ____ Central Uganda. Pray for these meeting that they find most us in good health and financially able position.
     Thanks a lot for the support, it looked like the enemy of souls was struggling against this humble help, but glory be to God who offers us sufficient grace in every emergency....
     Jeremiah 48:10 - “Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.” {deceitfully: or, negligently} We have wielded the sword of the Lord which is His word and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Eph 6:17, to communities far and near. By His grace we have done street evangelism (where) young people would listen attentively/raptly as we share Christ him crucified risen and soon coming Saviour, the ruin of man redemption and regeneration has been the common subjects shared.
     Visited Kenya 16th Nov 2016, in preparation for the coming camp, there is still financial needs by the brothers that side to host the camp meeting on 11th to 18th Dec 2016. We also need financial help for the camp meeting slotted for 23nd Dec 2016 to 2ND Jan 2017 at ____.
     I encouraged brothers and sisters Kenya at ____ and ____ at Brother ____ places.  They are eagerly waiting for a team from Uganda to whom some I will need to Transport to and fro.
     Praise be to the LORD thy prayers for the silent messenger was partly answered.  We got someone who put right the Riso-graph not as expensive as I had expected it to be. We have paid some monies, (but) we have some balances more so in the spare parts, that we need to purchase for better productivity. But all in all it is working and doing worthwhile job.  People are again being visited with silent messengers.
     Pray for the our nation and other nations in turmoil like Syria, the use of excessive force and weapons of massive destruction is on rise there on civilians, women and little children. God needs to move upon the hearts of men. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and [for] all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this [is] good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
     Thanks for standing with us, but still remember In that we wanted a shelter for worship. Let the Spirit of the Lord touch someone to help us do something for the glory of the Lord. I will be glad to hear from that side once again.
I remain yours In Christ Jesus. B.K., Uganda.


Elder Bob,
     Thank you for your support and prayers, Am much humbled and revived. I know the Spirit lead you so that you can encourage me.
     Am living by His grace, many challenges, but I know it is through your prayers that am well together with me Children.
     Thanks again, it was so impressive to hear from you. Please may God bless you more and more.
Thanks, B.W., Zambia.


Dear Elder Bob,
     Greetings with 3 John 2.
     I'm pleased to share this short report with you on the proceedings of the work here in Zimbabwe. We united our efforts as a group to reproduce some of LTBL tracts up to 3 boxes full recently which I have been busy distributing. I started doing this work on the 6th of November where I hold street evangelism at the same time distributing free literature to the people.
     The work is going on very well. I only had some disturbances for the whole week trying to assist one of our sister (who is a widow) who had her house burnt by fire. We tried our level best to look for food for this family and some clothing from well wishers around the country. The assistance we provided the sister was inadequate as she also looks after 4 children....We have only managed to supply tents as temporal shelters and just a little foodstuffs. If the Spirit of the Lord moves you to help we would greatly appreciate.
     After that, I resumed my duties on the 20th of November, and for now am only left with 1 box with free literature to distribute. Some of the remnant booklets that I had we normally share them among our little group and some we give to those who show interest when we are doing Bible studies in homes. Most of the people are responding very well indeed.
     I have had a good experience with some SDA pastors as I shared with them some of the LTBL DVDs. Some of them expressed a reluctance to accept accusing you as critical to the church. But most took them and went to listen at their homes. May you remember this ongoing work here in Zimbabwe.
     I am however appealing for more materials to continue this work. Besides we are receiving calls to translate our tracts into our languages. And this I shall also appeal to have another laptop to replace that other one which was stolen.
     Social media evangelism is still going on well. It is still its intended mission of uniting the southern African home churches.
B.N., Zimbabwe.
