    Need of Gifts

    While it may be argued that we have not only the excellent instruction of the Old Testament Scriptures, but in addition, the words of our Saviour himself, and of the apostles, what need have we of further light? The fact remains that these same holy apostles have pointed forward to the last days, when “perilous times shall come,” and when men shall “have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof,” telling us also that “some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.”GSAM 468.1

    In view of all this, that people of whom Paul speaks in writing to the Thessalonians, who will not be in darkness, that the day of Christ should overtake them as a thief, but who will be children of light, are exhorted to “prove all things” in the way of “prophesyings,” and to “hold fast that which is good.” 141 Thessalonians 5:5, 20, 21. This is equivalent to telling them that the people who will be looking for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will at last be found in readiness for that day, will have “good,” true manifestations of the gift of prophecy among them.GSAM 468.2
