These passing moments, that seem of so little value to us, are weighty with eternal interests. They are molding the destiny of souls for everlasting life or eternal death.
The time that so many are now allowing to go to waste should be devoted to the charge that God has given us of preparing for the approaching crisis.
The law of God should be loved and honored by His true people now more than ever before... “Search the Scriptures.” Study your Bible as you have never studied it before... As great light has been given, God expects corresponding zeal, faithfulness, and devotion on the part of His people.
Much time should be spent in prayer, that our garments of character may be washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb.
Especially should we, with unwavering faith, seek God for grace and power to be given to His people now.
A vast responsibility is devolving upon men and women of prayer throughout the land to petition that God will sweep back the cloud of evil and give a few more years of grace in which to work for the Master. Let us cry to God that the angels may hold the four winds until missionaries shall be sent to all parts of the world and shall proclaim the warning against disobeying the law of Jehovah.

Spend much time praying that the garment of your character may be washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb.
With unwavering faith, seek God for grace and power to be given to His people now.
Petition God to sweep back the cloud of evil and give a few more years of grace to work for the Master.
Cry to God to hold the four winds that missionaries shall be sent to all parts of the world and proclaim the warning against disobeying the law of Jehovah.
