The Testimony and Its Vessel Unto the Time of the End (continued)
Hell's Hatred of the Vessel of Testimony
Having covered the ground in general survey and main outline we are now able to begin to work more closely on the spiritual aspect of those things. We want to come into closer touch with out title in its meaning, that is, "The testimony and its vessel unto the time of the end."
I want to just touch one or two fragments of this book before we go on. Daniel 1:21: - "And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus." Try and keep that in mind, for it is a very important statement. Daniel 7:9-11: "I beheld till thrones were placed and One that was the Ancient of Days did sit: His raiment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like pure wool: His throne was fiery flames, and the wheels thereof burning fire" etc. 7:13-14, 22: - "and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom." 7:18: - "But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom...." 7:27: - "... and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High ..." 10:1, 12:13: - "But go thou thy way till the end be, for thou shalt rest, and shalt stand in thy lot at the end of the days."
We have been saying that this book reveals that throughout an extended period of this world's history, known as the "Times of the Gentiles," the heavens are in operation in relation to a vessel of the testimony of the Lord, and that inasmuch as the heavens are in operation in that connection, hell is also stirred up and is tremendously active in the same direction.
