Scenario  of  Events  in  These  Last  Days,  part  7

     Last time in part 6 we learned in Event #18 that at midnight God delivers His 144,000 saints.  The streams of water cease to flow.  Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other.  But in the midst of these angry skies is seen one clear space of indescribable glory revealing the open space in the constellation of Orion from which comes the voice of God from the throne in the heavenly temple saying: "It is done."  And then we saw some amazing pictures of this open space in Orion!
     After God’s voice declares It Is Done, then the greatest and most intense earthquake occurs. The whole earth heaves and swells like the waves of the sea. Mountain chains sink and inhabited islands disappear, and the very prison walls holding many of God's people crumble which sets them free.
     This greatest of earthquakes also rents open the graves of many of the dead, both righteous and wicked, and these are specially resurrected back to life.  The specially resurrected righteous are all those who have died in the faith of the third angel's message since October 22, 1844 and who have conscientiously kept God’s Seventh-day Sabbath holy.  While the specially resurrected wicked are those responsible for crucifying Christ, those that mocked and derided Christ's dying agonies, as well as the most violent opposers of God’s truth and people throughout the ages.
     Then we learned that glory from the celestial city streams from the gates ajar and there appears against the sky a hand holding two tables of stone folded together. The hand then opens these tables, and each of the 10 commandments are word by word traced out as with a pen of fire so plainly that all can read them and understand them in their own language.
     Then God’s voice, as the loudest thunder, is again heard from heaven declaring the day and hour of Jesus' coming, and delivering the everlasting covenant to His people.  God then gives each of His followers a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit and their faces are lighted up and shine with His glory.  God then pronounces a blessing upon those who have honored Him by keeping His Sabbath holy, and they give a mighty shout of victory.  
      This enraged the wicked and they rush upon the righteous trying to do them violence, but the righteous simply put forth their hand in the name of the Lord, and the wicked fall helpless to the ground. It is then that the Synagogue of Satan realizes that they are forever lost and that God has loved the righteous who could wash one another's feet and salute the brethren with a holy kiss, and overwhelmed at this realization they then bow down and worship at the saints feet.

     By bowing at the saints feet, the Synagogue of Satan hope to gain mercy.  But because they had given up God’s Sabbath day, there is seen miraculously written in large letters on each of their garments: "Thou art weighed in the balance, and found wanting."  As they realize that they are lost, they cry unto God declaring that they have believed in His coming, and even have taught it to others with energy.  But then their eyes would look down and see what was written on their garments, and they wail aloud.
     We then discovered that this Synagogue of Satan is composed of professed Adventists who had given up the Sabbath, and included priests, ministers, pastors and evangelists who were very instrumental in leading people away from following the present truth and from keeping God’s seventh-day Sabbath holy.  So those composing this Synagogue of Satan are not just ordinary wicked people, and thus their punishment is greater!  They will suffer all 7 plagues with 10 fold greater pain and intensity and will be among the last to die.

     But even though we discovered so much that occurs during this 7th plague yet it is not over, and so what happens next after the Synagogue of Satan has worshipped at the saints feet?  Also how long do these plagues fall upon the earth?  This is what we will discover today.

Event #19 – The 7th plague closes with Christ’s second coming, the righteous dead raised, the wicked destroyed, and all the righteous being taken to heaven.

     “...the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” 1 Thessalonians 1:7-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:10.

     “Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-52.

     “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.  And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Isaiah 25:8-9.

     “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

     “The voice of God is heard from heaven, declaring the day and hour of Jesus' coming, and delivering the everlasting covenant to His people....
     “Soon there appears in the east a small black cloud, about half the size of a man's hand. It is the cloud which surrounds the Saviour and which seems in the distance to be shrouded in darkness. The people of God know this to be the sign of the Son of man. In solemn silence they gaze upon it as it draws nearer the earth, becoming lighter and more glorious, until it is a great white cloud, its base a glory like consuming fire, and above it the rainbow of the covenant. Jesus rides forth as a mighty conqueror. Not now a "Man of Sorrows," to drink the bitter cup of shame and woe, He comes, victor in heaven and earth, to judge the living and the dead. "Faithful and True," "in righteousness He doth judge and make war." And "the armies which were in heaven" (Revelation 19:11, 14) follow Him. With anthems of celestial melody the holy angels, a vast, unnumbered throng, attend Him on His way. The firmament seems filled with radiant forms--"ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands." No human pen can portray the scene; no mortal mind is adequate to conceive its splendor. "His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. And His brightness was as the light." Habakkuk 3:3,4. As the living cloud comes still nearer, every eye beholds the Prince of life. No crown of thorns now mars that sacred head; but a diadem of glory rests on His holy brow. His countenance outshines the dazzling brightness of the noonday sun. "And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords." Revelation 19:16.
     “Before His presence "all faces are turned into paleness;" upon the rejecters of God's mercy falls the terror of eternal despair. "The heart melteth, and the knees smite together,...and the faces of them all gather blackness." Jeremiah 30:6; Nahum 2:10. The righteous cry with trembling: "Who shall be able to stand?" The angels' song is hushed, and there is a period of awful silence. Then the voice of Jesus is heard, saying: "My grace is sufficient for you." The faces of the righteous are lighted up, and joy fills every heart. And the angels strike a note higher and sing again as they draw still nearer to the earth.
     “The King of kings descends upon the cloud, wrapped in flaming fire. The heavens are rolled together as a scroll, the earth trembles before Him, and every mountain and island is moved out of its place....
     “The derisive jests have ceased. Lying lips are hushed into silence. The clash of arms, the tumult of battle, "with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood" (Isaiah 9:5), is stilled. Nought now is heard but the voice of prayer and the sound of weeping and lamentation. The cry bursts forth from lips so lately scoffing: "The great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" The wicked pray to be buried beneath the rocks of the mountains rather than meet the face of Him whom they have despised and rejected....
     “There are those who mocked Christ in His humiliation. With thrilling power come to their minds the Sufferer's words, when, adjured by the high priest, He solemnly declared: "Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." Matthew 26:64. Now they behold Him in His glory, and they are yet to see Him sitting on the right hand of power.
     “Those who derided His claim to be the Son of God are speechless now. There is the haughty Herod who jeered at His royal title and bade the mocking soldiers crown Him king. There are the very men who with impious hands placed upon His form the purple robe, upon His sacred brow the thorny crown, and in His unresisting hand the mimic scepter, and bowed before Him in blasphemous mockery. The men who smote and spit upon the Prince of life now turn from His piercing gaze and seek to flee from the overpowering glory of His presence. Those who drove the nails through His hands and feet, the soldier who pierced His side, behold these marks with terror and remorse.  
     “With awful distinctness do priests and rulers recall the events of Calvary. With shuddering horror they remember how, wagging their heads in satanic exultation, they exclaimed: "He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him. He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him." Matthew 27:42, 43....
     “Those who would have destroyed Christ and His faithful people now witness the glory which rests upon them. In the midst of their terror they hear the voices of the saints in joyful strains exclaiming: "Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us." Isaiah 25:9.
     “Amid the reeling of the earth, the flash of lightning, and the roar of thunder, the voice of the Son of God calls forth the sleeping saints. He looks upon the graves of the righteous, then, raising His hands to heaven, He cries: "Awake, awake, awake, ye that sleep in the dust, and arise!" Throughout the length and breadth of the earth the dead shall hear that voice, and they that hear shall live. And the whole earth shall ring with the tread of the exceeding great army of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. From the prison house of death they come, clothed with immortal glory, crying: "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" 1 Corinthians 15:55. And the living righteous and the risen saints unite their voices in a long, glad shout of victory.
     “All come forth from their graves the same in stature as when they entered the tomb. Adam, who stands among the risen throng, is of lofty height and majestic form, in stature but little below the Son of God. He presents a marked contrast to the people of later generations; in this one respect is shown the great degeneracy of the race. But all arise with the freshness and vigor of eternal youth....The mortal, corruptible form, devoid of comeliness, once polluted with sin, becomes perfect, beautiful, and immortal. All blemishes and deformities are left in the grave. Restored to the tree of life in the long-lost Eden, the redeemed will "grow up" (Malachi 4:2) to the full stature of the race in its primeval glory. The last lingering traces of the curse of sin will be removed, and Christ's faithful ones will appear in "the beauty of the Lord our God," in mind and soul and body reflecting the perfect image of their Lord....
     “The living righteous are changed "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye." At the voice of God they were glorified; now they are made immortal and with the risen saints are caught up to meet their Lord in the air. Angels "gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Little children are borne by holy angels to their mothers' arms. Friends long separated by death are united, nevermore to part, and with songs of gladness ascend together to the City of God.
     “On each side of the cloudy chariot are wings, and beneath it are living wheels; and as the chariot rolls upward, the wheels cry, "Holy," and the wings, as they move, cry, "Holy," and the retinue of angels cry, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty." And the redeemed shout, "Alleluia!" as the chariot moves onward toward the New Jerusalem.” Great Controversy, p 640-645.

     Now how much time does it take for all these plagues to fall?
     "For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities....Therefore shall her plagues come in one day; death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her." Revelation 18:5, 8.

     “And after His work there is finished, He will come to the door of the first apartment, and confess the sins of Israel upon the head of the Scape Goat. Then He will put on the garments of vengeance. Then the plagues will come upon the wicked, and they do not come till Jesus puts on that garment, and takes His place upon the great white cloud. Then while the plagues are falling, the Scape Goat is being led away. He makes a mighty struggle to escape, but he is held fast by the hand that leads him. If he should effect his escape, Israel would lose their lives. I saw that it would take time to lead away the Scape Goat into the land of forgetfulness after the sins were put on his head.” Spalding-Magan Collection, p 2.

     “As they (144,000) endeavor to wait trustingly for the Lord to work they are led to exercise faith, hope, and patience, which have been too little exercised during their religious experience. Yet for the elect's sake the time of trouble will be shortened. "Shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him? . . . I tell you that He will avenge them speedily." Luke 18:7, 8. The end will come more quickly than men expect.” Great Controversy, p 630.  

     The “one day” mentioned in Revelation for these 7 plagues to fall is not to be taken literally as a single day.  This is because we were told that it takes time to lead away the Scape Goat while the plagues are falling.  And neither can we take this “one day” to be prophetic time, or a whole year.  This is because we were also told that the amount of time it takes will be much shorter than many expect, because God will shorten it for the elect’s sake!  As this is all true, then we can safely conclude that the “day” mentioned refers to just a short period of time, instead of any specific set amount of time.  So the amount of time that it takes for the plagues to fall is much longer than a single day, but much shorter than a whole year.

     Now how long does it take for the Synagogue of Satan to worship at the saints feet during the 7th plague before Jesus comes in the clouds of heaven?
     “And I saw a flaming cloud come where Jesus stood. Then Jesus laid off his priestly garment and put on his Kingly robe, and took His place on the cloud which carried Him to the East, where it first appeared to the saints on earth—a small black cloud which was the sign of the Son of man. While the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saint’s feet.” Broadside #1, April 6, 1846 par. 8.

     Now the plagues begin to fall after Christ’s puts on His kingly robes of vengeance. But we are not told how long it is after Christ puts this garment on that He actually gets onto the fiery cloud and then leaves heaven and comes to the earth.  We are just told that it takes a number of days for the cloud to reach the earth.  So then when does Christ actually leave heaven on that cloud for the earth?
     “By the people of God a voice, clear and melodious, is heard, saying, "Look up," and lifting their eyes to the heavens, they behold the bow of promise. The black, angry clouds that covered the firmament are parted, and like Stephen they look up steadfastly into heaven and see the glory of God and the Son of man seated upon His throne. In His divine form they discern the marks of His humiliation; and from His lips they hear the request presented before His Father and the holy angels: ‘I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.’ John 17:24.” Great Controversy, p 636.

     So during the 7th plague the 144,000 are able to look up into heaven and see the glory of God and Jesus Himself sitting upon His throne.  And where is the throne of God located?  In the Most Holy Place of the heavenly Sanctuary.  So after Christ puts on His kingly robes He first goes to sit with His Father on His throne until the saints see Him there and hear His voice.  This then means that Christ was still in heaven all throughout the falling of these 7 last plagues, and that He does not leave heaven on that fiery cloud until at least the Voice of God has delivered the saints.  Then “while the cloud was passing from the Holiest to the East, which took a number of days, the synagogue of Satan worshipped at the saint’s feet.

     Now Jesus would not want to needlessly delay His coming to get His beloved bride and the righteous wedding guests, because He is anxious to go and get them and bring them to His Father’s home for the wedding feast.  So this again reveals that the amount of time in which the plagues fall is indeed quicker than many people expect!  And the amount of time it takes for Christ to come to the earth on that fiery cloud after God delivers the saints is just a number of days.
     “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:11-12.

     Now verse 11 reveals the closing of probation, and right after it closes then Christ immediately declares “behold, I come quickly” in verse 12!
     So the amount of time it takes for the plagues to fall until Christ comes is not a long period of time at all, because He is coming quickly!  This means that the period of time for the plagues to fall cannot be a literal re-application of the 42 months prophecy of Revelation 11 & 13 as many believe; neither can it be a literal re-application of the 1260 day prophecy of Daniel 12 and Revelation 11 & 12, or of the 1290 or the 1335 day prophecies of Daniel 12 as some teach; neither can it be a literal re-application of the 3 ½ year prophecy of Daniel 7 & 12 and Revelation 12 as some speculate; and neither can it be a literal re-application of the hour, day, month and year - or the 391 days and 1 hour - prophecy of Revelation 11, or even the 2300 day prophecy of Daniel 8 as some interpret it to be!  This is because this period is only a short time!
     “Probation is ended a short time before the appearing of the Lord in the clouds of heaven.” Great Controversy, p 490.

     So the period of time from probation closing until Christ comes does not take a long time to occur – it is not 391 days and 1 hour of time!  Nor does the 7 last plagues take a long time to fall – it is not 1260 days, or 42 months, or 3 ½ years of time!  Nor is the time of Jacob’s trouble prolonged to where the 144,000 saints have to suffer for 1290, or 1335, or 2300 days of time!  But instead all of these things occur in a short space of time!
     But how long is a short period of time?  Is it more than a week?  Is it more than 2 or 3 weeks?  We are not given any specifics of time beyond just the phrases that it would be “a short time”, or that it would “take time”, or that the time would be “quickly” over sooner than we expect.  So lets say that the falling of the plagues takes about 1 month to occur.  Why would this time need to be longer than a month?  Not one of the wicked will change!  And all that the 144,000 need to do is to remain loyal and obedient to God for a period of time in order to prove their faithfulness before the whole universe.  Wouldn’t a month or less be a sufficient amount of time to prove this?  But even if this period is a little more than 1 month, yet God will continue to be the Stay, Fortress and Refuge of all of His people, and in the name of the Lord and in the power of His grace they will remain faithful to their God and Saviour and come off more than conquerors!

     Now once Christ comes and gathers all His faithful followers to Him on that cloudy chariot, then how much time does it take for them to travel from earth back to heaven?
     “Then Jesus' silver trumpet sounded, as He descended on the cloud, wrapped in flames of fire. He gazed on the graves of the sleeping saints, then raised His eyes and hands to heaven, and cried, "Awake! awake! awake! ye that sleep in the dust, and arise." Then there was a mighty earthquake. The graves opened, and the dead came up clothed with immortality. The 144,000 shouted, "Alleluia!" as they recognized their friends who had been torn from them by death, and in the same moment we were changed and caught up together with them to meet the Lord in the air.
     “We all entered the cloud together, and were seven days ascending to the sea of glass”. Early Writings, p 16.

     So after all the saints get on that cloudy chariot and it leaves the earth it will take just 7 days of travel in order to reach heaven!  Now last time we discovered that heaven is located just beyond the open space in the Orion Nebula, and we also learned that this open space is some 1400 light years away from earth - or about 8.21 quadrillion miles.  This then means that this cloudy chariot which is carrying all the redeemed saints is traveling about 200 light years a day - or about 1.17 quadrillion miles a day!  That means, if you can comprehend it, that this chariot is traveling about 48.75 trillion miles an hour, or 81.25 billion miles a minute, or 1.35 billion miles a second!!

     Now what happens after the righteous arrive at heaven and then enter into this glorious land of paradise?  This is what we will be investigating into in our next Newsletter.

     For many years it was my written position that the majority of the pioneers of Adventism believed that the King of the North was the papacy. However, further research into their writings has clearly revealed that this was not the case at all.  Those who did believe the King of the North to be the papacy were few in number, and in no way made up the majority. I sincerely apologize for making this erroneous statement as far back as 1996, and for unintentionally misleading our readers due to my mistake.  I humbly ask for your forgiveness.  I also pray that you will take the time to prayerfully study into this important topic on the King of the North.  For an excellent and well documented study on the Pioneers’ beliefs on the King of the North, as well as who it represents, please visit www.inlightofprophecyfulfilled.org - and you will not be disappointed!


     "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.

Hi Elder Rob,
     Just thought I'd send the story I was speaking about in Prayer Meeting on trusting God - "The Penny"
     Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband’s employer’s home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house.
     The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband’s employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself immensely.
     As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband. He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment.
     Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts. Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny.
     He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up?
     Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her. Finally, she could stand it no longer. She causally mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.
     A smile crept across the man’s face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?
     “Look at it.” He said. “Read out loud what it says.” She read the words “United States of America.”  He said: “No, not that; read further.” She said “One cent?”  “No, keep reading.”  “In God we Trust?”  “Yes!”  She then said: “And?”
     “And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God’s way of starting a conversation with me. Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are plentiful!
     When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I read the words, “In God We Trust,” and had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message.
     It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful!  And, God is patient…
God Bless!!  S.L. Florida, USA.

Dear brother,
     There are so very few who truly believe in Sister White's writings as Inspired from the Throne of God. I know you do from your heart-felt pleading on your sites.
     I am a SDA from the mid 80's and would be long gone if it weren't for her writings. The Omega has controlled the Church for a long time. As you know, the GC President is as close to a Pope as the Pope, himself! We are admonished to: "sigh and cry for the abominations done in the land." 5 Test 210 and other places....
God Bless you my friend, S.M., Internet.

Elder Sessler
     Christian greetings from Uganda.
     It hath been long since I did write that side, not that there is not anything to report save the Lord hath at times called to labors that are humble - like visiting those in serious difficulties just to encourage and direct them to Christ the only Hope here and even tomorrow.  To this I have visited different homes. Lord has been good, for He hath given isaiah 50:4 “The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”
     I have given out tracts on Christmas, Easter and other subjects that are either ignored or have been twisted.  Prices (of copy) papers, master roll have doubled (and) we still need more of your support in this ministry of (printing and sending out these) silent messengers.
     Thanks for your prayers and support.  May the God of Israel greatly remember thee and redouble your blessing....
B.K., Uganda.


Dear Elder Bob

Yours brother in Christ, B.N., Zimbabwe.
