" Perilous tomes are before us ...The enemy is our track .We must be wide awake , on our guard against him ...We must follow the directions given through the spirit of prophecy .We must love and obey the truth for this time ..The warnings that have been given , line upon line , precept upon precept , should be heeded .If we disregard them, what excuse can we offer ? (8T 298.1)

"-- l have been shown that unbelief in the testimonies of warning , encouragement , and reproof is shutting away the light from God 's people .Unbelief is closing their eyes so that they are ignorant of their true condition .The true witness thus describes their blindness ..." (3T 255.3 )

" ..Elevate the standard of truth and urge the people to come up to it ..It is this pointed testimony that will bring them up to decide .A peaceful testimony will not do this ..

"--God 's servants must bear a pointed testimony , which will cut the natural heart and develop character .." (2T 248.2 -249.2)

"-- God has been testing his people .He allowed the testimony concerning dress to become silent , that our sisters might follow their own inclination and thus develop the real pride existing in their hearts .." (4T 639.3)

"--He who is converted from errors in eating , drinking , and dressing is being prepared to hear and to receive the truth into a good and willing heart .." (CH 221.4)

"-- Should not the people of God , who are his peculiar treasure , seek even in their dress to glorify God ? ..

(HR, Feb 1, 1872 par 4
