    III. WHAT DOES THE WORD TEACH US?

    1. It teaches that God is the Creator of all things, both which are in heaven and on earth. It teaches that we must be created anew in Christ Jesus: yet some say we create ourselves by good works.MWV1 116.3

    2. It teaches that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh: the mighty God, the everlasting Father. Yet some tell us he is but a man.MWV1 116.4

    3. It teaches that the Holy Spirit is sent down from God, as a sanctifier and reprover, to lead our minds into truth, and to regenerate the heart. Yet some deny his office totally, and some in part.MWV1 116.5

    4. The word teaches that we are elected according to the foreknowledge of God the Father. See 1 Peter 1:2: “Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.” And yet there are many, very many, who profess to be Christians, who deny this doctrine.MWV1 117.1

    5. The word teaches that “we are kept by the mighty power of God through faith unto salvation. Yet some say we keep ourselves. “I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish.” Yet some at this day say they can perish.MWV1 117.2

    6. The Bible says the wicked shall be driven into hell, punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, shall go away into everlasting punishment. Yet, say some, everlasting has an end. “But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” And yet many say, you shall not surely die.MWV1 117.3

    This is a fearful day, my brethren. It seems the devil has come down unto us, knowing that he hath but a short time. The lo-heres and lo-theres gather upon us thick as a cloud. Some pervert the doctrine of the gospel, and some the precept; some resist the power, and some pervert the ordinances. Let us, then, take heed unto the truth; for the truth shall make us free.MWV1 117.4

    Let us often ask the question, “What is truth?” and let us be sure we believe, practise, and teach it. For what good will deception or false sentiments do us in the coming storm; when the fire of God’s wrath will try every man’s work, and when truth only will stand in the day of judgment? “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but not one jot or tittle of my word shall fail.” “For the great day of his wrath is come, and who will be able to stand?” AMEN.MWV1 117.5
