I would like to encourage all to read today from Revelation chapter 13. I would also like to encourage all to read from the chapter "Liberty of Conscience Threatened" in this book: http://www.truthfortheendtime.com/SOPText/PDF/GreatControversy.pdf
"This is the day of the Lord’s preparation. He says: "Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. The great work from which the mind should not be diverted, is the consideration of our safety in the sight of God. The storm is coming, relentless in its fury. Are we prepared to meet it? Are our feet on the Rock of Ages? Are we one with Christ, as he is one with the Father?" RH, Dec. 27, 1898.
