At the Brink of Eternity
At the Brink of Eternity
As we approach the close of time, the enemy of souls lays snares at our feet to prevent us from entering the heavenly Canaan. Let us be vigilant to prepare to meet our Lord in peace!

Preparation for the Last Crisis
The solemn, testing time has come to get our priorities straight and die a greater death to death to self than we have ever yet done, laying upon the altar: self, property, and all, as a living sacrifice. Only then can the essence of our religion be manifest in our lives and cause us to bear more abundant fruit to the glory of God.

The Imminent Crisis of the Centuries
While on earth, Jesus gave distinct prophecies regarding the end of earth’s history—prophecies which are clearly being fulfilled in our day. As we see the hour of probation quickly drawing to a close, it becomes all the more evident that we need to fervently seek earnest repentance in the midst of crisis.

The Last Message of Mercy
The timetable of God’s mercy for our fallen planet is drawing to a close. Grace was offered through Noah to the people before the great Flood. Lot was warned before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah—and history repeats itself. Are we making wise use of the precious moments of probationary time that are lingering in our behalf?

A Prophecy and a Promise
The Holy Spirit is freely offered to whomsoever will cherish its precious ministry, speaking to the individual conscience and miraculously softening the heart with its intercessory power to accomplish the Lord’s work beyond our abilities, if we will only yield entirely to His wooing.

The Last Act of the Drama
In the near future, that which will come upon most of the world as an overwhelming surprise need not shock us. As we fully surrender daily to God and the sacred precepts of His eternal law, the testing time will not shatter the hope of the faithful.

When Christ Leaves the Sanctuary
The hour will soon come when our divine Mediator will no longer be pleading in our behalf in the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary. Will we be ready to stand before a holy God without His intercession? Now is the time to overcome our many defects through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.

The Blessed Hope
The coming of the great God and the glorious appearing our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is a blessed Hope—such as to make us a peculiar people that will live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world—whom the Lord is purifying to be zealous of good works.
The Signs of the Times
Poetry depicts the reality: The hourglass is emptying; the prophecies are fulfilling; the Bridegroom is at the door. Though the time may appear to tarry, it is nonetheless clear: the kingdom of the Lord draweth nigh.
