message goes with a loud voice, they will be ready for it. They will not hesitate long; they will come out and take their position.—Manuscript 19b, 1890.

Meeting Prejudice and Opposition

[See also pp. 445, 446, “Prejudice Broken Down.”]

Opposition—Those who introduce the leaven of truth amid the mass of false theories and doctrines may expect opposition. Satan's batteries will be opened upon those who advocate the truth, and the standard bearers must expect to meet many sneers, and much reviling that is hard to bear.—The Review and Herald, October 14, 1902.

Reformation Creates Opposition—Jesus and His disciples were surrounded with bigotry, pride, prejudice, unbelief, and hatred. Men were filled with false doctrines, and nothing but united, persistent endeavor could be attended with any measure of success; but the great work of saving souls could not be laid aside because there were difficulties to surmount. It was written of the Son of God that He should “not fail nor be discouraged.”

There is a great work before us. The work that engages the interest and activity of heaven is committed to the church of Christ. Jesus said: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” The work for our time is attended with the same difficulties that Jesus had to meet, and that the reformers of every age have had to overcome; and we must set our wills on the side of Christ, and move forward with firm confidence in God.—The Review and Herald, March 13, 1888.
