The Missing quote NOT on the EGW CD-ROM
From MR # 866 frame 7, (on microfilm Manuscript Releases)
"Momentous truth is conveyed to the mind through the reading of the Scriptures. Every word is a valuable pearl. No word is to lose its virtue and force. One word changed would injure the thought and destroy the lesson taught. By incorrect punctuation the meaning of the word of God may be greatly altered. The Holy Spirit directed and impressed the writers of the Bible. These men did not write words of human wisdom, but words given them by God." MS-40-1900.
A picture of Genesis 1:1 from the Interlinear in Hebrew and English--Note: Hebrew reads from right to left. Notice the first thing He created was the "ET" Alef & Tav, "all the letters from A to Z" as we would say.
6 Through the word of Yehovah the heavens were made; And by the breath of His Mouth, all their host.
9 For He spoke, and it was; He commanded, and it stood.
Hebrew Kabbalah tells that the Letters were the first thing He made, and that by use of the letters He created the heavens and the earth, the letters representing cosmic powers or cosmic spiritual forces.
Zechariah 12:10 describes these words and letters to be our Saviour embodied "a body hast Thou prepared for Me" Hebrews 10:5
Zechariah 12:10 from Hebrew-English Interlinear in the Hebrew ordering of words.
And I will pour out on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of Grace and prayers. And shall they look on Me Alef-Tav Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and will be bitter over Him like the bitterness over the firstborn.
Thus this Hebrew text declares beyond the shadow of a doubt, that Our Saviour is indeed "The Word of Elohim". The First and the Last, not the Greek Alpha and Omega, but the Hebrew Alef and Tav, represented in Hebrew with these two letters, translated in English as "ET" or "IT".
It or et, (English for Alef-Tav the first and last letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet) slight difference for a similar sound of et in the Hebrew language. Notice how The Pilgrims that fled to America had the Geneva Bible with them which bloody Mary outlawed, and King James hated.
Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith Yehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no El formed, neither shall there be after Me.
Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared Me:
The masoretic text - KJV, left this out of Psalms 40:6, "but a body You readied to Me"
Septuagint - Psalms 40:6 A sacrifice and offering You wanted not, but a body You readied to Me; whole burnt-offerings and a sacrifice for sin You did not seek.
KJV - Psalms 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears
hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God."
Often the follower of Christ is brought where he cannot serve God and
carry forward his worldly enterprises. Perhaps it appears that obedience
to some plain requirement of God will cut off his means of support.
Satan would make him believe that he must sacrifice his conscientious
convictions. But the only thing in our world upon which we can rely is
the word of God. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you." Matt. 6:33. Even
in this life it is not for our good to depart from the will of our Father in
heaven. When we learn the power of His word, we shall not follow the
suggestions of Satan in order to obtain food or to save our lives. Our
only questions will be, What is God's command? and what His promise?
Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.

LET HEAVEN GUIDE
PROPHECY MUST BE FULFILLED. Yehovah says: "Behold, I will send you ELIJAH THE PROPHET before THE COMING OF THE GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF Yehovah." SOMEBODY IS TO COME in the SPIRIT AND POWER OF ELIJAH, and when he appears, men may say: "You are too EARNEST, you do not INTERPRET the SCRIPTURES in the PROPER WAY. Let ME TELL YOU HOW TO TEACH your MESSAGE."
There are many who cannot distinguish between the work of Elohim and that of man. I shall tell the truth as Elohim gives it to me, and I say now, IF YOU CONTINUE TO FIND FAULT, TO HAVE A SPIRIT OF VARIANCE, YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE TRUTH. Yehoshua said to His disciples, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now." They were not in a condition to appreciate sacred and eternal things; but Yehoshua promised to send the Comforter, who would teach them all things, and bring all things to their remembrance, whatsoever He had said unto them.
Brethren, we must not put our dependence in man. "Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? You must hang your helpless souls upon Yehoshua. It does not become us to DRINK FROM THE FOUNTAIN OF THE VALLEY WHEN THERE IS A FOUNTAIN IN THE MOUNTAIN. Let us leave the LOWER STREAMS; let us come to the HIGHER SPRINGS. If there is a POINT of TRUTH that you do not understand, upon which you do not agree, INVESTIGATE, COMPARE SCRIPTURE WITH SCRIPTURE, SINK THE SHAFT OF TRUTH DOWN DEEP INTO THE MINE OF Elohim'S WORD. YOU MUST LAY YOURSELVES AND YOUR OPINIONS ON THE ALTAR OF Elohim, PUT AWAY YOUR PRECONCEIVED IDEAS, AND LET THE SPIRIT OF HEAVEN GUIDE INTO ALL TRUTH. Review and Herald, Feb. 18, 1890---Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers page 475, 476
There is to be IN THE CHURCHES a WONDERFUL MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER OF Elohim, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before Yehovah, and OPENED THE DOOR of their heart by CONFESSION and REPENTANCE. IN THE MANIFESTATION OF THE POWER THAT LIGHTENS THE EARTH WITH ITS GLORY, they will see only SOMETHING which in their blindness THEY THINK DANGEROUS, SOMETHING WHICH WILL AROUSE THEIR FEARS, and (they) will brace themselves to resist it. Because Yehovah does not work according to their expectations and ideas, they will oppose the work. "Why" they say, "should we not know the Spirit of Elohim, when we have been in the work so many years?" Review and Herald 11-7-1918
Amid the confusing cries, "Lo, here is the Messiah! Lo, there is the Messiah!" will be borne a SPECIAL TESTIMONY, a SPECIAL MESSAGE of TRUTH APPROPRIATE for THIS TIME, which MESSAGE is to be received, believed, and acted upon. It is the TRUTH, not fanciful ideas, that is efficacious. The ETERNAL TRUTH of the WORD will stand forth free from all seductive errors and spiritualistic interpretations, free from all fancifully drawn, alluring pictures. Falsehoods will be urged upon the attention of Elohim's people, but the TRUTH is to stand clothed in its BEAUTIFUL, PURE GARMENTS. The WORD, PRECIOUS in ITS HOLY, UPLIFTING INFLUENCE, is not to be degraded to a level with common, ordinary matters. It is always to remain uncontaminated by the fallacies by which Satan seeks to deceive, if possible, the very elect.
The proclamation of the GOSPEL is the only means in which Elohim can employ human beings as His instrumentalities for the salvation of souls. As men, women, and children proclaim the gospel, Yehovah will OPEN THE EYES OF THE BLIND to see His STATUTES, and will write upon the hearts of the TRULY PENITENT His LAW. The animating Spirit of Elohim, working through human agencies, leads the believers to be of one mind, one soul, unitedly loving Elohim and keeping His COMMANDMENTS--PREPARING HERE BELOW FOR TRANSLATION. ...We must not wait for the LATTER RAIN. It is coming upon all who will recognize and appropriate the DEW and SHOWERS of GRACE that FALL UPON US. When we GATHER UP the FRAGMENTS of LIGHT, when WE APPRECIATE the SURE MERCIES of Yehovah who loves to have us trust Him, THEN EVERY PROMISE WILL BE FULFILLED. The WHOLE EARTH is to be FILLED with THE GLORY of Elohim.
...The MESSAGE in regard to the fall of Babylon must be given. Elohim's people are to understand in regard to the ANGEL who is to LIGHTEN the whole world with his GLORY, while he CRIES MIGHTILY, with a LOUD VOICE, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen." The solemn events which are now taking place belong to a SERIES OF EVENTS in the CHAIN of history, THE FIRST LINK of which IS CONNECTED with EDEN. Let the people of Elohim PREPARE for what is coming upon the earth. Extravagance in the use of means, selfishness, heresies, have taken the world captive. For centuries satanic agencies have been at work. Will they now give up without a struggle. SDA Bible Commentary Vol. 7 page 984, 985

CHAPTER NUMBER- 829
CHAPTER TITLE- The Third Angel's Message
The Third Angel's Message
The word of Elohim in His law is binding upon every intelligent mind. The truth for this time, the third angel's message, is to be proclaimed with a loud voice, meaning with increasing power, as we approach THE GREAT FINAL TEST. THIS TEST must come to the churches in connection with the TRUE MEDICAL MISSIONARY WORK, a work that has the Great Physician to dictate and preside in all it comprehends. Under the great Head we are to present Elohim's WORD REQUIRING OBEDIENCE to the SYSTEM OF SCRIPTURE TRUTH, which IS A SYSTEM OF AUTHORITY AND POWER, convicting and converting the conscience. The DEMAND of the WORD to OBEDIENCE is a LIFE-AND-DEATH question.
The PRESENT TRUTH FORTHIS TIME COMPRISES THE MESSAGES, the third angel's message succeeding the first and second. The presentation of this message with all it embraces is our work. We stand as the remnant people in these last days to promulgate the truth and swell the cry of the third angel's wonderful distinct message, giving the trumpet a certain sound. Eternal Truth, which we have adhered to from the beginning, is to be maintained in all its increasing importance to the close of probation. The trumpet is to give no uncertain sound. We must DEVISE AND PLAN WISELY, PRACTICING SIMPLICITY and the STRICTEST ECONOMY and MANIFESTING THE MESSIAH'S LIKENESS OF CHARACTER. Faith, eternal faith in the past and in the present truth is to be talked, is to be prayed, is to be presented with pen and voice.
The third angel's message in its clear, definite terms is to be made the prominent warning. All that it comprehends is to be made intelligible to the reasoning minds of today. While we bind ourselves to the development of the truth in the past angels' messages, we are announcing the message of the third angel and of the OTHER ANGEL THAT FOLLOWS the third, THE SECOND TIME PROCLAIMING THE FALL OF BABYLON.
We are to give the message, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. . . . Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Revelation 18:1,4). This message is to come to the churches. We are to consider the best plans for accomplishing this. The message must be so presented as to command the attention of reasoning minds.
These SACRED TRUTHS, believed and practiced, are not to be carried in any coercive manner, but in the spirit of the Master. The Holy Spirit will reach noble minds and the better spirit of men. In all our sanitariums there should be men who understand the doctrine of truth and who can present it by pen and voice. They will be brought in contact with men of no mean minds, and they should plead with them as they would plead with an only son. It should be our aim, saith Yehovah, not to put in responsible positions of trust men who are not fitted by experience, men who do not take deep views of Scripture truth.
Many suppose that appearance and style and pretense are to do a great work in reaching the higher classes. But this is an error. These persons can read these things. Appearance has something, yes, much to do with the impressions made upon minds, but the appearance must be after a Elohimly sort. Let it be seen that the workers are bound up with Elohim and heaven. There should be no striving for recognition by worldly men in order to give character and influence to the work in these last days. Consistency is a jewel. Our faith, our dress, and our deportment must be in harmony with the character of our work, the presentation of the most solemn message ever given to the world. OUR WORK IS TO WIN MEN TO BELIEF OF THE TRUTH, to win by preaching and by example, also by living Elohimly lives. THE TRUTH IN ALL ITS BEARINGS IS TO BE ACTED, SHOWING THE CONSISTENCY OF FAITH WITH PRACTICE. The value of our faith will be shown by its fruit. Yehovah can and will impress men by our intense earnestness. Our dress, our deportment, our conversation and the depth of a growing experience in spiritual lines, all are to show that the great principles of truth we are handling are a reality to us. Thus the truth is to be made impressive as a great whole and command the intellect. Truth, Scripture truth, is to become the authority for the conscience and the love and life of the soul.
And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT as we went forth and PROCLAIMED THE SABBATH MORE FULLY. THIS ENRAGED THE CHURCH AND NOMINAL ADVENTISTS, as they could not refute the SABBATH TRUTH. And at this time, Elohim'S CHOSEN, ALL SAW CLEARLY THAT WE HAD THE TRUTH, AND THEY CAME OUT AND ENDURED THE PERSECUTION WITH US. A word to the little flock. page 19
To souls that are EARNESTLY seeking for LIGHT, and that accept with GLADNESS EVERY RAY of Divine Illumination from His Holy Word,--to SUCH ALONE LIGHT will be given. It is through these souls that Elohim will reveal that LIGHT and POWER which will LIGHTEN THE WHOLE EARTH with HIS GLORY. Testimonies Vol 5, p 729
Elohim REQUIRES ALL who believe the truth to make SPECIAL, PERSEVERING EFFORTS to place themselves in the BEST POSSIBLE CONDITION of BODILY HEALTH, for a solemn and important work is before us. HEALTH of BODY and MIND is REQUIRED FOR THIS WORK; IT IS as ESSENTIAL to a Healthy Religious Experience, to advancement in the Yahdian life, and progress in HOLINESS, as is the hand or foot to the human body. Elohim requires His people to CLEANSE THEMSELVES from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of Yehovah. All those who are indifferent and excuse themselves from this WORK, waiting for Yehovah to do for them that which HE REQUIRES THEM TO DO FOR THEMSELVES, will be found wanting when the meek of the earth, who have wrought HIS JUDGMENTS, are hid in the day of Yehovah's anger. I was shown that if Elohim's PEOPLE make no efforts on their part, but wait for THE REFRESHING to come upon them and remove their wrongs and correct their errors; if they depend upon that to CLEANSE THEM from filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and fit them to engage in the LOUD CRY OF THE THIRD ANGEL, they will be found wanting. THE REFRESHING OR POWER OF Elohim comes only on those who have PREPARED THEMSELVES FOR IT by doing the WORK which Elohim bids them, namely, CLEANSING THEMSELVES from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting HOLINESS in the fear of Elohim. Testimonies for the Church Vol.1, page 619
I saw that many were NEGLECTING THE PREPARATION SO NEEDFUL and
were looking to the time of "REFRESHING" and the "LATTER RAIN" to fit
them to stand in THE DAY OF Yehovah and to LIVE IN HIS SIGHT. Oh, how many I saw in
the time of trouble without a shelter! They had NEGLECTED THE NEEDFUL PREPARATION;
therefore they could not receive the REFRESHING that all must have TO FIT THEM TO LIVE IN
THE SIGHT OF A HOLY Elohim. Those who refuse to be HEWED BY THE PROPHETS and fail to
PURIFY THEIR SOULS IN OBEYING THE WHOLE TRUTH, and who are willing to believe that their
condition is far better than it really is, will come up to the time of the falling of the
plagues, and then see that they needed to be HEWED and SQUARED for the BUILDING. But
there will be no time then to do it and no Mediator to plead their cause before the
Father. Before this time the awfully solemn declaration has gone forth, "He
that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still:
and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy
still." I saw that none could share the "REFRESHING" unless they
obtain the VICTORY over every besetment, over pride, selfishness, love of the
world, and over every wrong word and action. We should, therefore, BE DRAWING NEARER
AND NEARER TO Yehovah AND BE EARNESTLY SEEKING THAT PREPARATION NECESSARY TO ENABLE US TO
STAND IN THE BATTLE IN THE DAY OF Yehovah. Let all remember that Elohim IS HOLY AND
THAT NONE BUT HOLY BEINGS CAN EVER DWELL IN HIS PRESENCE. Early Writings page 71

Every human being will have to give an account to Elohim for the way in which he has used his ENTRUSTED TALENTS. We are under obligation to use our powers aright that we may be qualified for eternal life in the kingdom of Elohim. Elohim DEMANDS PERFECTION FROM EVERY HUMAN BEING. We are to BE PERFECT IN THIS LIFE OF HUMANITY, even as Elohim IS PERFECT in HIS DIVINE CHARACTER. This day with Elohim page 318, 319

Wonderful possibilities are open to those who lay hold of the divine assurances of Elohim's word. There are GLORIOUS TRUTHS to come before the people of Elohim. Privileges and duties which they do not even suspect to be in the Bible will be laid open before them. As they follow on in the PATH OF HUMBLE OBEDIENCE, DOING HIS WILL, they will know more and more of the oracles of Elohim.... In Heavenly Places page 136
