Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-2 Introduction •Yes & No do apply to the title’s question. Let me explain: •God does have secrets-we are surrounded by them but, •God does not keep secrets, •He only reveals them at the appropriate time. Let’s look at Amos 3:7 (the Lord reveals his secrets to his prophets) Proverbs 3:5 (Let God lead your understanding of things, not ourselves)

Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-4 Let’s take a look at: Ecclesiastes 1:9, Proverbs 25:2, and 1 Corinthians 2:7 Prophets of Old (Cont.)

Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-6 •Troubled by some believers’ attitudes: •Anguishing because there is no sense of urgency, •we have a life and death message to bear, •the World is perishing in sin, •realize that we are on the borders of the eternal world. Ellen G. White
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-7 Following the bitter disappointment of 1844, E. G. White in a series of proclamations assured that God’s plan was in place; and was proceeding as planned: “Interwoven with prophecies which they had regarded as applying to the time of the second advent was instruction specially adapted to their state of uncertainty and suspense, and encouraging them to wait patiently in the faith that what was now dark to their understanding would in due time be made plain. Among these prophecies was that of Habakkuk 2:1-4...” -- The Great Controversy, page 392 Ellen G. White (Cont.)
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-8 •Light is to shine forth from God’s people in clear, distinct rays: •The instrumentalities to be used are those souls who gladly receive the light of truth, •These are God’s agencies for communicating the knowledge of the truth to the world, •we are to be transformed, •God will give us additional light, •we must seek truths that are hidden within the rubbish of error. Modern Day / End-Time Prophets
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-9 •Do not ever think that the infinite one has no more light for his people: •our cases will not be excusable before God if; •we shut out new light, •we are prejudiced against the message, •we are prejudiced against the messenger. Modern Day / End-Time Prophets (Cont.)
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-10 •God, by His Holy Spirit, will qualify men to partake in the final work: •He will enable them to do the work, •He will guide the mind in what to speak and write. •Method and / or means for transfer of this last day information: •very much out of the common order of things, •in a way contrary to human planning, •surprising by how simple the means. Modern Day / End-Time Prophets (Cont.)
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-11 “When divine power is combined with human effort, the work will spread like fire in the stubble. God will employ agencies whose origin man will be unable to discern.” -- Last Day Events, page 207 Some will not accept the new divine light: “In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, 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 the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work. ‘Why,’ they say, ‘should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?’” -- Review and Herald Extra, Dec. 23; 1890 Modern Day / End-Time Prophets (Cont.)
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-12 •Third angel’s message will not be comprehended by some: •will be called a false light, •will come in an unexpected manner, •Truths of the Third Angel’s Message Constantly Unfolding, •messages will be twisted by the wicked. •When message closes, no more mercy: •work is accomplished, •latter rain has been received, •Saints are prepared for the end. Modern Day / End-Time Prophets (Cont.)
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-13 •Unbelief in the testimonies has been steadily increasing: •People are backsliding from God, •The unbelief exists throughout our ranks. •Few know what our churches are to experience shortly: •We have been under divine forbearance, •Ellen White was not sure how long this would continue, •This was the extending of God’s mercy, •There now are only a few that will shine like stars in a tempestuous night. Conclusion
Class_1_Does_God_Have_Secrets.ppt© ; David Douglas Bell, All rights reserved Page # 1-14 “There is yet much precious truth to be revealed to the people in this time of peril and darkness, but it is Satan’s determined purpose to prevent the light of truth from shining into the hearts of men. If we would have the light that has been provided for us, we should show our desire for it by diligently searching the word of God. Precious truths that have long been in obscurity are to be revealed in a light that will make manifest their sacred worth ; for God will glorify His word, that it may appear in a light in which we have never before beheld it.” -- Counsels on Sabbath School Work, page 25 Conclusion (Cont.)
