    RULE TWO-TRUE PROPHETS

    By looking at the testimony of the apostle John, we find another rule describing the teaching of true prophets. He says:PGGC 68.1

    “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1 John 4:1-3.PGGC 68.2

    Note carefully the foregoing scripture. It does not say whosoever confesses that Jesus Christ “did come in the flesh,” but, “IS COME IN THE FLESH;” that is, that He comes, by His Spirit, and dwells IN US, in response to our faith. This, in fact, is the central truth of the gospel, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Ephesians 3:17; Colossians 1:27.PGGC 68.3

    The practical theme found in all of Mrs. White’s writings is the necessity of an indwelling Saviour if we would make any advancement in the heavenly way. Her writings teach the necessity of Christ first, last, and all the time. As an illustration of this fact, attention is called to her book, “Steps to Christ,” of which more than one hundred thousand copies have been sold in English, to say nothing of the thousands of copies in more than twenty foreign languages in which it is now printed.PGGC 68.4
