made the heavens and the earth is their God.—Manuscript 139, 1903, 7, 8. (“The Message in Revelation,” typed October 23, 1903.)

The world is now realizing the sure results of transgression of the law of God. His work of Creation completed, the Lord rested on the seventh day, and sanctified the day of His rest, setting it apart as the day which man should devote to His worship. But today the world is largely disregarding the law of Jehovah. Another day has been instituted in the place of God's day of rest. The human agent has set his way and his will against the positive teachings of the word, and the world is plunged in rebellion and sin.—Manuscript 117, 1908, 2. (“A Message to Our Churches in California,” December 17, 1908.)

Let us reverence God's institution, the Sabbath day; for it is the sign of our relationship to God, the sign by which we are demonstrated as His people. Let us strive, not to stand highest, but to be always obedient to all of God's requirements. It is our privilege to be loyal and obedient, true as steel in maintaining the faith. It is through our obedience, and our loyalty to the truth, that we stand before the world as subjects of Christ's kingdom.—Letter 54, 1911, p. 2. (To Sister [Dr. Lauretta] Kress, July 28, 1911.)
