     The time has come for us all to arise and shine, for our light has come, and the glory of the Lord has indeed risen upon us!  It is definitely time for us all to proclaim forth a risen and righteous Saviour throughout all the earth in the Loud Cry tones of Revelation 14 and 18, which will awaken all who sleep and bring on the crisis of the Sunday law and the ending of this great controversy!
     Some may say; NO!  It is not yet time to give the Loud Cry of Revelation 18 today!  But what does God say?
     "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." Upward Look, p 277 (Manuscript 75, September 20, 1906).

     Some may say; NO!  The Third Angel's message is not yet swelling into a Loud Cry!  But what does God say?
     "The third angel's message is swelling into a loud cry, and you must not feel at liberty to neglect the present duty, and still entertain the idea that at some future time you will be the recipients of great blessings, when without any effort on your part a wonderful revival will take place." Selected Messages, book 1, p 190 (Review and Herald, March 22, 1892).

     Some may say; NO!  The Loud Cry of Revelation 18 has not yet begun to sound!  But what does God say?
     "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." SDA Bible Commentary, vol 7, p 984 (Review and Herald, November 22, 1892).

     Some may say; NO!  The Sunday law is what signals the time for the Loud Cry of Revelation 18 to be given; so we are not to give the Revelation 18 message today, and those who do so are premature and causing confusion!  But what does God say?
     "And the message for today is: `Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen....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 18:2,4,5. The time is not far distant when the test will come to every soul.  The observance of the false sabbath will be urged upon us." Prophets and Kings, p 187-188.

     Some may say; NO!  The Sunday law crisis is what brings on the giving of the Loud Cry, and it is not the giving of the Loud Cry of Revelation 18 that brings on the crisis!  But what does God say?
     "We have the truth which, in its proclamation is to bring the crisis for this world's history." Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 190 (Letter 94, July 3, 1900).

     Dear ones, don't you see what time we are living in today?  We are living in the time of the giving and the swelling of the Loud Cry!  Don't you see what honor God is holding out to each one of us?  The blessed honor and privilege to have a part NOW in helping to swell this Loud Cry message which will bring on the crisis of the Sunday law and the ending of this great controversy!  Then, what are we waiting for?  Let us all arise and shine, for our light has already come, and the glory of the Lord has already arisen upon us!  Let us act upon and follow this precious message ourselves, separating from all sin and from all connection with corrupt churches, and take this precious life and death message to the world so that this earth can indeed be lighted with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea!
     It is no longer time to listen to the words of men who tell us to remain inactive and be mute until the time of the Sunday law.  It is no longer time to give heed to and obey these ministers who refuse to follow the truth themselves and also refuse to preach the present truth message of the Loud Cry of the angel of Revelation 18 to others!  Let us go forth in obeying this truth, coming up to the help of the Lord, and leave these men behind if they still refuse to join us.  Let us raise our united voices in calling other precious souls to Jesus and away from all sin and determined sinners, that life may be theirs in Christ, instead of death because they remained connected with sin and fallen churches of Babylon!  Time is a wasting, and souls are perishing for want of this present sealing truth!  No longer allow the perversity of blind men to keep you diverted from arising and giving this precious Loud Cry message!  No longer allow this message of Revelation 18 to struggle against the determined foes opposed to its advancement, but give this message now to all parts of the world!
     "The message of the angel following the third is now to be given to all parts of the world.  It is to be the harvest message, and the whole earth will be lighted with the glory of God.  The Lord has this one [last] call of mercy to [give to] the world, but the perversity of men diverts the work from its true bearing, and the light has to struggle amid the darkness of men who feel themselves competent to do a work that God has not appointed them to do." Last Day Events, p 78 (Letter 86, June 18, 1900).

     "The truth for this time, the third angel's message, is to be proclaimed with a loud voice, meaning with increasing power, as we approach the great final test....We stand as the remnant people in these last days to promulgate the truth and swell the cry of the third angel's wonderful distinct message, giving the trumpet a certain sound." 1888 Materials, p 1710.

     Will you be among these "remnant people" pictured above whose job it is today to spread forth this last message of mercy, giving the trumpet a certain sound, continuing to swell the third angel's message into, and to further increase the intensity and volume of, the Loud Cry of Revelation 18 until the whole earth is lightened with God's glory?  Or will you be among those who sit back and continue to give the trumpet an uncertain sound, hindering this last message of mercy because you are deceived into waiting for the Sunday law to come before you arouse to action, and thus risk being passed by and lost with others taking your crown?  It is time to choose whom you are going to follow--God, and give this message now; or men, and wait until the Sunday law?  May we all think very carefully on this!
     "The work to be done now is that of sounding this last message of mercy to a fallen world....They (God's servants) will not be turned from the present message, which is already lightening the world with its glory." Selected Messages, book 2, p 114.
