    The Remnant Church to Have the Spirit of Prophecy

    There are plain and specific statements in the Scriptures that the Lord will specially manifest the gifts of his Spirit, and especially the gift of prophecy, among the people who will be found waiting for his coming. The first text that we call attention to is found in the letter to the Corinthians, and reads: “I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; that in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: so that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 51 Corinthians 1:4-8.GSAM 200.1

    In the revelation we read of the “remnant”—the last gospel church: “The dragon was wroth with the woman [church], and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” 6Revelation 12:17. What is the “testimony of Jesus,” we inquire, which the last church is to have, and which in its confirmation prepares the way for the manifestation of all the gifts of the Spirit? To this question we find an answer in the testimony of the angel to John on the isle of Patmos: “I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” 7Revelation 19:10.GSAM 200.2

    This definition given by the angel shows that it is the “spirit of prophecy” manifest in the church that is waiting for Christ that prepares the way for all the gifts, and that war is made on the “remnant” church for having that gift among them.GSAM 201.1
