Uninterrupted Victories

A personal testimony.

A Licensed Minister.

For some time I have been strongly impressed that if I stand amid the perils of the last days and pass the test of the investigative judgment, I must be wholly right with the Lord and with my fellow man. Not long ago the hour came when I began seeking the Lord as never before, and wonder­ful results have come into my life. It is impossible for me to express in words the precious experiences. At first, the Lord pointed out some very definite wrongs to be righted, some methods of living that must be aban­doned, some duties that must be per­formed, notably of first importance, searching the Scriptures and commun­ion of soul with God.

It seemed as if Satan fought against a full and eternal surrender to Christ, but the Lord strengthened me in turn­ing to Him with all my heart, and I am fully satisfied that every wrong deed and every willful sin is forgiven, that the Lord owns me as His child, and that Christ has come into my heart and life; and there is sweet fel­lowship with Him. Christ abides in the soul-temple, and there is no dark­ness at all. His word is more precious to me than ever before in my life, and from it beam forth bright gleams of light and truth such as were never be­fore revealed. Prayer has become the greatest delight of my life, and the service of the Lord is a greater joy than I have ever known. Knowing that my Saviour knows just what I ought to do, and where I ought to go, in labor for Him, makes it a delight to trust His divine guidance, and to see how wonderfully all works out to His glory and to my good.

The greatest longing of my soul is to make known to others what Jesus has done for me and what He will do for them. I know what it means to have darkness and sorrow of spirit; to be bound by the enemy of souls, to long for deliverance; to have the form of godliness and deny the power thereof. But, praise the name of the Lord, the great Deliverer has come and changed all this. O how hard I tried to make myself righteous, and to keep myself right! But it did little good. When Christ was permitted to have His way, I came to know the meaning of that statement in " Testi­monies," Volume VI, page 307: " The life of Christ's disciples is to be like His, a series of uninterrupted victories, not seen to be such here, but recognized as such in the great hereafter." The supreme need of the hour is the com­plete enthronement of Christ in heart and life, by the third Person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit of God. This only will enable us to serve Him aright here, and prepare us to meet Him when He comes.

Problems in Conversion

I am perplexed by expressions from certain preachers to the effect that they were in the work for years before they were converted. Would any one give up the world and preach this message for years unless he were converted? Why then this suggestion about a late conversion? Is it not simply a deeper experience?
