The Swift Messengers are to Receive Means to Take Their Warning Message to the Church and The World

"As long as the truth is progressive, the claims of God rest upon men to give of that which He has entrusted to them for this very purpose." Testimonies, Vol. 4, p. 469.

“Clearly, plainly, earnestly, tell them how thousands of men and women are using God's money to corrupt themselves and to make this world a hell. Millions of dollars are spent for that which makes men mad. Present this matter so clearly that its force cannot but be seen. Then tell your hearers of the Saviour, who came to this world to save men and women from all sinful practices. "God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Evangelism, p. 530

"The Lord has shown me that precious souls are starving, and dying for want of the present, sealing truth, the meat in due season; and that the Swift Messengers should speed on their way, and feed the flock with the present truth. I heard an Angel say, 'speed the swift messengers, speed the swift messengers; for the case of every soul will soon be decided, either for Life, or for Death.'
I saw that those who had the means were required to help speed those messengers, that God had called to labor in his cause,
and as they went from place to place, they would be safe from the prevailing pestilence. But if any went that were not sent of God, they would be in danger of being cut down by the pestilence; therefore all should earnestly seek for duty, and be sure and move by the direction of the Holy spirit . . . .
"Destruction is coming like a mighty whirlwind.' I begged of the angel to pity and to save those who loved this world, and were attached to their possessions, and were not willing to cut loose from them, 'and sacrifice them to speed the messengers on their way to feed the hungry sheep, who were perishing for want of spiritual food.
"As I viewed poor souls dying for want of the present truth, and some who professed to believe the truth were letting them die, by withholding the necessary means to carry forward the work of God the sight was too painful, and I begged of the angel to remove it from me. I saw that when the cause of God called for some of their property, like the young man who came to Jesus, [Matt. xix, 16-22], they went away sorrowful; and that soon the overflowing scourge would pass over and sweep their possessions all away, and then it would be too late to sacrifice earthly goods, and lay up a treasure in heaven. . . .
"Then again was held up before me those who were not willing to dispose of this world's goods to save perishing souls, by sending them the truth, while Jesus stands before the Father, pleading his blood, his sufferings and His death for them; and while God's messengers were waiting, ready to carry them the saving truth that they might be sealed with the seal of the living God. It was hard for some who professed to believe the present truth to even do so little as to hand the messengers God's own money, that he had lent them to be stewards over.
"Then the suffering Jesus, his sacrifice and love so deep, as to give his life for them, was again held up before me; and then the lives of those who professed to be his followers, who had this world's goods, and considered it so great a thing to help the cause of salvation. The angel said, 'Can such enter heaven?' Another angel answered, 'No, never, never, never. Those who are not interested in the cause of God on earth, can never sing the song of redeeming love above.'
"I saw that the quick work that God was doing on earth would soon be cut short in righteousness, and that the Swift Messengers must speed on their way to search out the scattered flock. An angel said, 'Are all messengers? No, no, God's messengers have a message.
"I saw that the cause of God had been hindered, and dishonored by some travelling who had no message from God. Such will have to give an account to God for every dollar they have used in travelling where it was not their duty to go; for that money might have helped on the cause of God, and for the lack of it, souls have starved and died for the want of spiritual food, that might have been given them by God's called and chosen messengers if they [THE SWIFT MESSENGERS WITH A MESSAGE OF WARNING] had had the means.
"I saw that those who have strength to labor with their hands, and help sustain the cause, were as accountable for that strength, as others were for their property" E.G. White, Review and Herald Articles, vol. 1, p. 11, cols. 2 and 3.

Messengers Whom God Chooses--Leaders to Align Themselves With God's True Messengers

"The rebuke of the Lord will rest upon those who would bar the way, that clearer light shall not come to the people. A great work is to be done, and God sees that our leading men have need of more light, that they may unite with the messengers who He sends to accomplish the work that He designs shall be done. The Lord has raised up messengers [plural], and endued them with His Spirit, and has said, 'Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and who My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins [Isa. 58:1]. Let no one run the risk of interposing between the people and the message of Heaven. This message will go to the people; and if there were no voice among men to give it, the very stones would cry out." E.G. White, Gospel Workers, 304.

SDA Church Leaders Will Never Again do What God's Chosen Messengers are Appointed to do: Show the House of Jacob Their Sins

"Here we see that the church--The Lord's sanctuary--was the first to feel the stoke of the wrath of God. The ancient men, those to whom God had given great light and who had stood as guardians of the spiritual interests of the people, had betrayed their trust. They had taken the position that we need not look for miracles and the marked manifestation of God's power as in former days. Times have changed. These words strengthen their unbelief, and they say; The Lord will not do good, neither will He do evil. He is too merciful to visit His people in judgment. Thus 'Peace and safety' is the cry from men who will never again lift up their voice like a trumpet to show God's people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. These dumb dogs that would no bark are the ones who feel the just vengeance of an offended God, Men, Maidens, and little children all perish together." Testimonies, ol. 5, 211.

Notice the qualifying, key phrases, such as "...the Lord's Sanctuary; "those to whom God had given great light; and "God's people." Make no mistake about it friend, the above statement is solely in reference to God's people, professing Seventh-day Adventists. Also, the "dumb dogs" part is quoting Isaiah 56:10-12, where God is speaking of His chosen people, not Babylon! Inspiration never uses such pejoratives to describe Babylon.

"God has not appointed any man guide, nor made any man conscience for another; therefore let human hands be withheld from restraining His servants who feel the burden to enter his vineyard to labour. Let God work with His own chosen agents by His Holy Spirit. . . .
"The Lord does not ask permission of those in responsible positions when he wishes to use certain ones as His agents for the promulgation of truth. But He will use whom He will use. He will pass by men who have not followed His counsel, men who feel capable and sufficient to work in their own wisdom; and he will use OTHERS who are thought by these supposedly wise one to be wholly incompetent." E. G. White, Review and Herald, July 23, 1895.

"Enoch, Noah, Moses, Daniel, and the long roll of patriarchs and prophets,--these were ministers of righteousness. They were not infallible; they were weak, erring men; but the Lord wrought through them as they give themselves to His service." E. G. White, Gospel Workers, 13.

"In every age prophets had lifted up their voices against the sins of kings, rulers, and people, speaking the words which God gave them, and obeying His will at the peril of their lives. From generation to generation there had been heaping up a terrible punishment for the rejecters of light and truth. This the enemies of Christ were now drawing down upon their own heads. The sin of the priests and rulers was greater than that of any preceding generation. By their rejection of the Saviour, they were making themselves responsible for the blood o all the righteous men slain from Abel to Christ." E. G. White, Desire of Ages, 618.

"God has no sympathy with the evil doer. He gives no one liberty to gloss over the sins of His people, nor to cry, 'peace, peace,' when He has declared that there shall be no peace for the wicked. Those who stir up rebellion against the servants whom God sends to deliver His messages are rebelling against the word of the Lord." Testimonies, Vol. 4, p. 185.

"Today, in the spirit and power of Elias and of John the Baptist, MESSENGERS OF GOD'S APPOINTMENT are calling the attention of a judgment-bound world to the solemn events soon to take place in connection with the closing hours of probation and the appearance of Christ Jesus as King of kings, and Lord of lords." E. G. White, Prophets and Kings, 716.

"It may be argued that the Lord gives special wisdom to those to whom he has entrusted grave responsibilities. The Lord does give special wisdom to him who has sacred trusts. If the human agent, moment by moment, makes God his only helper, and walks humbly with him, God will then give light and knowledge and wisdom, in order that his human agent may be able to guide his brethren who would look to him for counsel as to their duty. In a clear and forcible manner he will point them to a Source that is untainted and pure from the defects and errors that are so apparent in humanity. He may, for it is his privilege, refuse to be brains and conscience for his brethren. He may tell them with softened heart that he goes to God for supplies of wisdom and grace, and that the Lord will give liberally to all who ask him for wisdom. He will discern and lay bare the peril there is in looking to human agents instead of to God, and will encourage them to do as Jesus has instructed his children to do,--go to God for knowledge, wisdom, power, and grace." E. G. White, Review and Herald, Vol. 3, 175.

"I have no smooth message to bear to those who have been so long as FALSE GUIDEPOSTS, pointing the WRONG WAY. If you reject God's delegated messengers, you reject Christ." E. G. White, Testimonies to Ministers, 97.

"Most startling messages will be borne by men of God's appointment, messages of a character to warn the people, to arouse them. And while some will be provoked by the warning, and led to resist light and evidence, we are to see from this that we are giving the testing message for this time. Messages will be given out of the usual order." E. G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 9, 137.

"The messages from heaven are of a character to arouse opposition. The faithful witnesses for Christ and the truth will reprove sin. Their words will be like a hammer to break the flinty heart, like a fire to consume the dross. There is constant need off earnest, decided messages of warning. God will have men who are true to duty. At the right time He sends His faithful messengers to do a work similar to that of Elijah." E. G. White, Testimonies, Vol. 5, 254.

We are not to use the sacred tithe for any other purpose than the support of the ministry. Ellen White says that it is not even to be used to help the poor. We cannot be prospered by God in any endeavor if we rob Him of the sacred tithe.
