MR No. 25—Supplementary Spirit of Prophecy Statements on the “Blocks” and “Pins” of the Message

[Release requested by Elder L. E. Froom, a part to be used in a paper on the “blocks” and “pins” of the message and a part to be associated with published statements in an accompanying column of gem Spirit of Prophecy quotations.]

Truths of 1844-46 Abide

I do not wish to ignore or drop one link in the chain of evidence that was formed as, after the passing of the time in 1844, little companies of seekers after truth met together to study the Bible and to ask God for light and guidance.... The truth, point by point, was fastened in our minds so firmly that we could not doubt....The evidence given in our early experience has the same force that it had then. The truth is the same as it ever has been, and not a pin or a pillar can be moved from the structure of truth. That which was sought for out of the Word in 1844, 1845, and 1846 remains the truth today in every particular. Letter 38, 1906, pp. 1, 2. (To the Wahroonga Sanitarium Family, January 23, 1906.)

Messages Located by Inspiration

The proclamation of the first, second, and third angels’ messages has been located by the Word of Inspiration. Not a peg or pin is to be removed. No human authority has any more right to change the location of these messages than to substitute the New Testament for the Old. The Old Testament is the gospel in figures and symbols. The New Testament is the substance. One is as essential as the other.—Manuscript 32, 1896, 1. (“Testimony Concerning the Views of Prophecy Held by Brother John Bell, 1896.)
