“WE ARE IN THE SHAKING TIME, the time when everything that can be shaken will be shaken. The Lord will not excuse those who know the truth if they do not in word and deed obey His commands.--6T 332

“AS THE STORM APPROACHES, a LARGE CLASS [the majority] who have professed faith in the third angel's message, but have not been sanctified through obedience to the truth, abandon their position and join the ranks of the opposition. By uniting with the world and partaking of its spirit, they have come to view matters in nearly the same light; and when the test is brought, they are prepared to choose the easy, popular side. Men of talent and pleasing address, who once rejoiced in the truth, employ their powers to deceive and mislead souls. They become the most bitter enemies of their former brethren. When Sabbath-keepers are brought before the courts to answer for their faith, these apostates are the most efficient agents of Satan to misrepresent and accuse them, and by false reports and insinuations to stir up the rulers against them.” {GC 608.2}

"Prosperity multiplies a mass of professors. Adversity purges them out of the church." -4 Testimonies, 89:2.

"Divisions will come in the church. Two parties will be developed. The wheat and tares grow up together for the harvest." - 2 Selected Messages, 114:0.

"When the day comes when the law of God is made void, and the church is sifted by the fiery trials that are to try all that live upon the earth, a great proportion of those who are supposed to be genuine will give heed to seducing spirits, and will turn traitors and betray sacred trusts. They will prove our very worst persecutors."-6 
Bible Commentary, 1065:1/1.

"Many a star that we have admired for its brilliance will then go out in darkness." -Prophets and Kings, 188:1.

"Chaff like a cloud will be borne away on the wind, even from places where we see only floors of rich wheat." -5 Testimonies, 81:1.

‘”The shaking of God blows away multitudes like dry leaves." -4 Testimonies,

"In the last solemn work few great men will be engaged." -5 Testimonies, 80:1.

"Soon God's people will be tested by fiery trials, and the great proportion of those who now appear to be genuine and true will prove to be base metal."-5 Testimonies, 136:1.

As we embark upon the great commission given in  Matthew 28:19-20, "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo I am with you alway, even until the end of the world. Amen."
