22 These are the People with Academic Professions and People with Money They are the people who have been active part in the world’s work

23 Borrowing the Indicator of Ellen G. White, these are the People living in the “Highways” These are the people who bear heavy responsibilities in public life These are the people need to be proclaimed by the Gospel message

24 Ellen G. White Said, “The call to be given ‘in highways,’ is to be proclaimed to all who have been active part in the world’s work, to the teachers and leaders of the people. Those who bear heavy responsibilities in public life, physicians and teachers, lawyers and judges, public officers and businessmen, should be given a clear, distinct messages” ( Ev., 554-5; 6T, 78).

25 Who’s First to Hear the Message? “The message is FIRST to be given ‘in the highways ’ – to men who have an active part in the world’s work, to the teachers and leaders of the people” COL, 229

26 Men in business life, in high positions of trust, men with large inventive faculties and scientific insight, men of genius, teachers of the gospel whose minds have not been called the special truths for this time these should be the FIRST to HEAR the CALL. To THEM the INVITATION MUST be GIVEN” (COL, 233)

27 Evangelism, 555; MM, 244 E.G. White said: “There has not been the effort made that should have been made to reach the higher classes” “This class have been sadly neglected. The workers have judged from appearance, and have taken it as a certainty that they would labor in vain” “There has not been the effort made that should have been made to reach the higher classes” “This class have been sadly neglected. The workers have judged from appearance, and have taken it as a certainty that they would labor in vain”

28 “Let the Lord’s messengers bear this in mind. To the shepherds of the flock, the teachers divinely appointed, it should come as a word to be heeded. Those who belong to the higher ranks of society are to be sought out with tender affection and brotherly regard” (COL, 233)

29 “There is a work to be done for the wealthy …. The wealthy men Need your labor in the love and fear of God. Too often they trust in their riches and feel no hunger …. Those who stand in the world for their education, wealth, or calling, are seldom addressed personally… we would not standby and see them

30 perish because he was a lawyer, a merchant, or a judge…many in high social positions are heart sore, and sick of vanity. They are longing for peace they have not. In the highest ranks of society are those who are hungering and thirsting for salvation” COL, 230

31 “Again and again I am instructed to present to our churches the work that should be done in our large cities. There is a great work to be done…. After we have been told that our cities are to hear the message, but how slow we are to heed the instruction … Seventh-day Adventists Are Slow

32 Seventh-day Adventists are asleep … we are far behind in following the light God has given regarding the working of our large cities” Ev Seventh-day Adventists Are Asleep

33 Reasons of Evangelizing the Highways First “When the truth is presented in the highways, the hedges will be opened and an extended work will be done” Ev., 40; Letter 168, (1909).

34 “Plans for the higher classes will reach all…. First reach the high classes…, but there should no neglect of the lower classes…. Methods may be devised to reach the higher classes …. Plans to reach the best classes, and you will not fail to reach the lower classes” Ev., 553.

35 Gospel Workers, 348 E.G. White said: “There are many wealthy men who are susceptible to the influences and impressions of the gospel message, and who, when the Bible and the Bible alone is presented to them as the expositor of Christian faith and practice, will be moved by the Spirit of God to open doors for the advancement of the gospel. and who, when the Bible and the Bible alone is presented to them as the expositor of Christian faith and practice, will be moved by the Spirit of God to open doors for the advancement of the gospel. They will reveal a living faith in the word of God, and will use their entrusted means to prepare the way of the Lord, to make straight in the desert a highway for our God” They will reveal a living faith in the word of God, and will use their entrusted means to prepare the way of the Lord, to make straight in the desert a highway for our God” “There are many wealthy men who are susceptible to the influences and impressions of the gospel message, and who, when the Bible and the Bible alone is presented to them as the expositor of Christian faith and practice, will be moved by the Spirit of God to open doors for the advancement of the gospel. and who, when the Bible and the Bible alone is presented to them as the expositor of Christian faith and practice, will be moved by the Spirit of God to open doors for the advancement of the gospel.

36 “So now, if men of influence and large capacity for usefulness could be won for Christ, then through them what a work could be accomplished in lifting up the fallen, gathering the outcasts, spreading far and wide the tidings of salvation. Rapidly the invitation might be given, and the guests be gathered for the Lord’s table” COL, 232.

37 “Here is a field of labor that should not be neglected. These persons are stewards to whom God has committed important trusts. We should come close to this class … many of them are soul burdened; they long for something, they know not ….

38 If saved to Jesus Christ, they will be useful agents in the hands of God to communicate the light to others. If converted to the truth, they will have a special burden to draw other souls of this neglected class to the light” -Medical Ministry, 243.

39 E.G. White in the Gospel Workers, 349 said: “The Lord desires that moneyed men shall be converted, and act as His helping hand in reaching others… and act as His helping hand in reaching others… and be led to use their entrusted capital in His service. and be led to use their entrusted capital in His service. He would have them invest the means He has lent them, in doing good, in opening the way for the gospel to be preached to all classes, nigh and afar off” He would have them invest the means He has lent them, in doing good, in opening the way for the gospel to be preached to all classes, nigh and afar off” “The Lord desires that moneyed men shall be converted, and act as His helping hand in reaching others… and act as His helping hand in reaching others… and be led to use their entrusted capital in His service. and be led to use their entrusted capital in His service. He would have them invest the means He has lent them, in doing good, in opening the way for the gospel to be preached to all classes, nigh and afar off” He would have them invest the means He has lent them, in doing good, in opening the way for the gospel to be preached to all classes, nigh and afar off”

40 The Heaviest Burden of E.G. White in Evangelism: “The burden of the needs of our cities have rested so heavily upon me that it has sometimes seemed that I should die” -Ev., 34. -Ev., 34.

41 In the Gospel Workers, 361 says: “In the higher walks of life will be found many who will respond to the truth, because it is consistent, because it bears the stamp of the high character of the gospel” (White, Gospel Workers, 361) because it is consistent, because it bears the stamp of the high character of the gospel” (White, Gospel Workers, 361) In Luke 10:1-3 speaks of the truth that Cities & Towns are already ready for the harvest (kindly read for understanding) “In the higher walks of life will be found many who will respond to the truth, because it is consistent, because it bears the stamp of the high character of the gospel” (White, Gospel Workers, 361) because it is consistent, because it bears the stamp of the high character of the gospel” (White, Gospel Workers, 361) In Luke 10:1-3 speaks of the truth that Cities & Towns are already ready for the harvest (kindly read for understanding)

42 E.G. White said in the book Evangelism, 556: “The intelligent, the refined, are altogether too much passed by. The hook is not baited to catch this class, and ways and methods are not prayerfully devised to reach them with truth that is able to make them wise unto salvation” The hook is not baited to catch this class, and ways and methods are not prayerfully devised to reach them with truth that is able to make them wise unto salvation” “The intelligent, the refined, are altogether too much passed by. The hook is not baited to catch this class, and ways and methods are not prayerfully devised to reach them with truth that is able to make them wise unto salvation” The hook is not baited to catch this class, and ways and methods are not prayerfully devised to reach them with truth that is able to make them wise unto salvation”

43 “Thousands of wealthy men have gone to their graves unwarned, because they have been judged by appearance, and passed by as hopeless subjects. because they have been judged by appearance, and passed by as hopeless subjects.

44 “A great work is to be done … the favorable time for our message to be carried to the cities has passed by, and this work has not been done. I feel a heavy burden that we shall now redeem the time ” Ev., 31, 231; Manuscript, 62. We Shall Now Redeem the Time:

45 Except Literature Evangelism, and Except Media Evangelism, there is no other best evangelism strategy yet that is workable to reach Elite People than through Elite Church members reaching their fellow Elite.Except Media Evangelism, there is no other best evangelism strategy yet that is workable to reach Elite People than through Elite Church members reaching their fellow Elite. Therefore, training Elite Church members to reach their fellow elite is indispensible

46 No Time to Lose The work is before us; will we engage in it? We must work fast, we must go steadily forward. We must be preparing for the great day of the Lord. We have no time to lose, no time to be engaged in selfish purposes. The world is to be warned. The work is before us; will we engage in it? We must work fast, we must go steadily forward. We must be preparing for the great day of the Lord. We have no time to lose, no time to be engaged in selfish purposes. The world is to be warned.

49 EGWhite Recommendation for M2C “Seven men should have been chosen to be united with the president, to set in operation a work in the great cities for those who are peri- shing with out the truth, while no determined efforts are being put forth to save them. These seven men should be men who are wide awake, men that are humble and meek and lowly in heart. Never should the cities have been neglected as they are; for there has come most decidedly message after message calling for earnest labor.”

50 She added: “No less than seven men should be chosen to carry the large responsibilities of the work of God in the great cities. And these men should humble themselves daily and seek the Lord most earnestly for sanctified wisdom. They should relate themselves to God as men desirous to be taught. They must be men of prayer, who realize the peril of their own souls. What should be the work of these seven men? They should investigate the needs of the cities and put forth earnest, decided efforts to advance the work” ( Evangelism, 37-38).
