Need for Aggressive Work to Be Done --A great work is to be done to prepare a people to stand in the day of the Lord. Missionaries should be at work in every large city, where our publications should be kept for distribution. Missionaries should be in all quarters of the earth to enlighten those who are in darkness, to make ready a people for the soon coming of Jesus. There is a great work to be done to combat all the prejudice, not only of the ignorant but of the learned. There are schools to be supported, that we may educate the youth and teach them the Bible and to love and reverence God.--Letter 65, 1884, p. 4. (To Brother Osborn, Feb. 7, 1884.)

All Are Laying Up Material for the Judgment --Consider, my brother, my sister, that day by day, hour by hour, we are laying up the material for that searching judgment. Our whole lifework is bound up very solemnly with the second coming of our Lord.--Letter 64, 1888, p. 8. (To Joseph Collie and wife, Nov. 5, 1888.)

Those Who Cannot See Signs of Times Are Candidates for Plagues --God calls for men and means. Those who cannot see the signs of the times in this wicked and adulterous generation will be found with those who perish under the plagues poured from the vials of God's wrath.--Letter 109, 1899, p. 16. (To Brethren and Sisters in Africa, Aug. 8, 1899.)

Satan Will Cause God's People All the Trouble Possible --In the last days Satan will use all his powers against God's people, to afflict, to distress, to discourage them, to cause them all the trouble he possibly can.--Letter 93, 1900, p. 2.
