God abhors indifference and disloyalty in a time of crisis. His special blessing accompanies the labors of men of action, men who will not swerve from the straight line of duty, but with divine energy will inquire, "Who is on the Lord's side?" Men who will not stop merely with the inquiry, but who will demand that those who choose to identify themselves with the truth shall step forward and reveal unmistakable their allegiance to the King of kings.

Their work is to catch the light of truth and let it shine forth to the world in clear steady rays. Fidelity to God is their motto. God cannot use men who in time of peril, when the strength, courage and influence of all are needed, are afraid to take a firm stand for the right. He calls for those that will do faithful battle against wrong, warring against principalities and powers, against spiritual wickedness in high places. It is to such as these that he will speak the words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

Those who have not had their attention drawn to the message of Armageddon, may find it a surprise to learn that the Bible does not depict a military conflict, but portrays the termination of the great conflict that has raged down through the ages. The prophet describes the great controversy between God and Satan, from the time they warred in heaven until the consummation of all things.

Soon all the inhabitants of the earth will have taken sides, either for or against the government of Heaven. The last great conflict between truth and error is but the final struggle of the ages upon this battle we are now entering, the battle between the religion of the Bible and the religion of fable and tradition.

The agencies which will unite against the truth in this contest are now actively at work. The wicked have fully united with the powers of evil in their warfare against God. Now the conflict is not alone with Satan but with men.

As the conflict draws to a close, the sixth plague will be poured out upon the great river Euphrates. This is a symbolic reference to those that support and uphold the system of false worship known as Babylon. Thus the people are destroyed making way for the deliverance of those that have stood firmly for truth. Why will these plagues fall? Because the people led on by the spiritual leaders and governments of the world have rebelled against the government of Heaven. They fall upon those that worship the beast and his image, a spiritual act.

Dear reader, on whose side will you be found? Will you stand for truth? God is calling for people to take a stand and escape the wrath that is to come.
