Luther Warren, one of our pioneers, once said, "I would urge every one of our people: Study the Spirit of Prophecy as though your life depended on it." That is good counsel. This book will tell you why. Soon Jesus Christ will return to earth, and we must get ready to meet Him! And we must warn others to get ready!


What is the Spirit of Prophecy for?

How were we given our doctrinal positions?

Messages from the Lord
"Satan is . . constantly pressing in the spurious—to lead away from the truth. The very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God. ‘Where there is no vision, the people perish’ (Proverbs 29:18). Satan will work ingeniously, in different ways and through different agencies, to unsettle the confidence of God’s remnant people in the true testimony." —1 Selected Messages, 48 [see 2 SM 78 for context]

"One stood by my side and said: ‘God has raised you up and has given you words to speak to the people and to reach hearts as He has given to no other one. He has shaped your testimonies to meet cases that are in need of help. You must be unmoved by scorn, derision, reproach, and censure. In order to be God’s special instrument you should lean to no one, but hang upon Him alone and, like the clinging vine, let your tendrils entwine about Him. He will make you a means through which to communicate His light to the people. You must daily gather strength from God in order to be fortified, that your surroundings may not dim or eclipse the light that He has permitted to shine upon His people through you. It is Satan’s special object to prevent this light from coming to the people of God, who so greatly need it amid the perils of these last days.’ " —2 Testimonies, 607-608
