The time of trouble, which is to increase until the end, is very near at hand. We have no time to lose. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecies of the eleventh of Daniel have almost reached their final fulfillment.–RH Nov. 24, 1904.
The time of trouble–trouble such as was not since there was a nation [Daniel 12:1]–is right upon us, and we are like the sleeping virgins. We are to awake and ask the Lord Jesus to place underneath us His everlasting arms, and carry us through the time of trial before us.–3MR 305 (1906).
The world is becoming more and more lawless. Soon great trouble will arise among the nations–trouble that will not cease until Jesus comes.–RH Feb. 11, 1904.
We are on the very verge of the time of trouble, and perplexities that are scarcely dreamed of are before us.–9T 43 (1909).
We are standing on the threshold of the crisis of the ages. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another–fire, and flood, and earthquake, with war and bloodshed.–PK 278 (c. 1914).
There are stormy times before us, but let us not utter one word of unbelief or discouragement.–ChS 136 (1905).
