CAN OUR DEAD SPEAK TO US (FINAL TEXTS)

Post by sol_drethedon on Tue Jan 07, 2014 7:50 pm

The prophet Isaiah brings to view the fearful deception which will come upon the wicked, forcing them to count themselves secure from the judgment of God: "We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement: when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refugee, and under falsehoods have we hid ourselves." Isaiah 28:15. In the class here described are included those who in their stubborn impenitence comfort themselves with the assurance that there is to be no punishment for the sinner; that all mankind, it matters not how corrupt, are to be exalted to heaven, to become as the angels of God. But still more emphatically are those making a covenant with death and are in agreement with hell, who renounce the truth that heaven has provided as a defense for the righteous in the day of trouble, and accept the refuge of lies offered by Satan in its stead--the delusive pretension of spiritualism

Marvelous beyond expression is the blindness of the people of this generation. Thousands reject the word of God as unworthy of belief and with eager confidence receive the deceptions of Satan. Skeptics and scoffers denounce the bigotry of those who contend for the faith of prophets and apostles, and they divert themselves by holding up to ridicule the solemn declaration of the Scriptures concerning Christ and the plan of salvation, and the retribution to be visited upon the rejecters of the truth. They affect great pity for minds so narrow, weak and superstitious as to acknowledge the claims of God and obey the requirements  of His law. The manifest as much assurance as if, indeed, they had made a convenant with death and an agreement with hell-- as if they had erected an impassable, impenetrable barrier between themselves and the vengeance of God. Nothing can arouse their fears. So fully have they yielded to the tempter, so closely are they united with him, and so thoroughly imbued with his spiritthat they have no power and no inclination to break awy from his snare.

Satan has long been preparing for his final effort to deceive the world . The  foundation of his work was laid by the assurance given to Eve in Eden: "Ye shall not surely die." "In the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Genesis 3:4,5. Little by little he has prepared the way for his  masterpiece of deception in the development of spiritualism. He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs;but it shall be reached in the last remnant of time. Says the prophet: "I saw three unclean spirits like frogs;..... they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth into the kings of the earth and  of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of the great day of God Almighty." Revelation 16:13,14. Except those who are kept by the power of God, through faith in His word, the whole world will be swept into the ranks of this delusion. The people are fast being lulled to a fatal security, to be wakened only by the outpouring of the wrath of God.

Saith the Lord God:"Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be dis-annulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it." Isaiah 28:17,18
