As I saw what we must be to inherit glory, and
then saw how much Y'hoshua had suffered for us to
obtain for us so rich an inheritance, I prayed that we
might be baptized into Messiah's sufferings, that we
might not shrink at trials, but bear them with
patience and joy, knowing what Y'hoshua had suffered,
that we might through His poverty and sufferings be
made rich. Said the angel, "Deny self, ye must
step fast." I saw that some of us have had time to
get the truth, and to advance step by step, and every
step we have taken has given us strength to take the
next. But now time is almost finished, and what we
have been years learning, they will have to learn in
a few months. And they will have to unlearn much,
and learn again. And those who will not receive
the mark of the beast and his image, when the
decree goes forth, must have decision now to say,
nay, we will not regard the institution of the beast.
