Is there to be a special message for the last days?


"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man comes. Who then is a
faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over His household, to give them meat in due
season?" Matt. 24: 44, 45.
NOTE - In the last days a message will go forth which will be "meat in due season" to the people.
This must be the warning concerning the Lord's soon coming, and the preparation necessary to meet Him.
Because such a message was not always preached, is no evidence that it is not now to be proclaimed. In his
farewell address to the Pilgrim Fathers on their departure from Holland for America, John Robinson said:
"The Lord knows whether I shall ever see your faces more; but whether the Lord bath appointed that or
not, I charge you before God and His blessed angels to follow me no farther than I have followed Christ. If
God should reveal anything to you by any other instrument of His, be as ready to receive it as you ever
were to receive any truth by my ministry; for I am very confident that the Lord bath more truth and light
yet to break forth out of His Holy Word. For my part, I cannot sufficiently bewail the condition of the
Reformed churches, who are come to a period in religion, and will go no farther than the instruments of
their reformation. The Lutherans cannot be drawn to go any farther than what Luther saw; and the
Calvinists, you see, stick fast where they were left by that great man of God, who yet saw not all things.
This is a misery much to be lamented; for though they were burning and shining lights in their time, yet
they penetrated not into the whole counsel of God, but were they now living, would be as willing to
embrace further light as that which they first received."
