A Collection of Extracts from the Testimonies on the Medical Missionary Work

1. Our Work—To Preach the Everlasting Gospel. Matthew 28:19, 20. Revelation 14:6-11

The commission given to the disciples is given also to us. Today, as then, a crucified and risen Saviour is to be uplifted before those who are without God and without hope in the world. The Lord calls for pastors, teachers, and evangelists,—

The words, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature,” are spoken to each one of Christ's followers. All who are ordained into the life of Christ are ordained to work for the salvation of their fellow men. The same longing of soul that He felt for the saving of the lost is to be manifest in them. Not all can fill the same place, but for all there is a place and a work. All upon whom God's blessing have been bestowed are to respond by actual service; every gift is to be employed for the advancement of His kingdom. - Testimonies for the Church 8:15, 16.

It is essential that men be raised up to open the living oracles of God to all nations, tongues, and peoples. Men of all ranks and capacities, with various gifts, are to stand in their God-given armor, to cooperate harmoniously for a common result. They are to unite in the work of bringing the truth to all nations and people, each worker fulfilling his own special appointment,—The General Conference Daily Bulletin, March 2, 1899, Art. B, par. 5.

The truth for this time, the third angel's message, is to be proclaimed with a loud voice, (meaning with increasing power), as we approach the great final test. This test must come to the churches in connection with the true medical missionary work, a work that has the great Physician to dictate and preside in all its comprehends... The present truth for this time comprises the messages, the third angel's message succeeding the first and second. The presentation of this message, with all it embraces, is our work ... The third angel's message, in its clear, definite terms, is to be made the prominent warning; all that it comprehends is to be made intelligible to the reasoning minds of today. Unpublished MS... (H. 121-1900).

2. To Every Man His Work. Ephesians 4:11-13

The Lord has need of all kinds of skillful workmen. “He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists, and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
