In this dream, I am standing on the right side of a very beautiful and enormous vessel. I am unable to comprehend its width or length. The design and appearance speak of a divine love of infinite beauty. Its paint is the whitest of white—a white that no one on this earth has yet beheld. To add to its beauty, the paint has mixed in with it perfect ground up diamonds. Each speck of diamond was cut to perfection, allowing each ray of sunlight to show the diamonds’ beautiful colors of the rainbow. The vessel has tires about as high as a three-story building and as wide as a one-lane road. The front right and left sides of this vessel each have 3 tires and 3 axles that are turned as if the vessel is about to make a right turn. The back right and left sides have 7 axles with 3 tires on each axle. I know that there are a total of 48 tires.
I now see many people standing around, and I begin telling them that evil forces have desecrated this beautiful vessel. Drawing their attention way up on the side of the vessel, I point out lettering that is large and deeply engraved. Once filled with 24-carat gold, the letters are now empty cavities that spell out “Seventh-day Adventist Church.” I notice that all over the sides of this vessel, there is graffiti in the form of spiritualist symbols and pagan signs. I am calling out to all that this is a beautiful vessel and that we should all work together to remove the graffiti. I tell them that there is plenty of room for all inside and to not give up and walk away. I tell them the ticket to enter has already been paid; there is no charge. I tell them we should all go inside of the vessel.
Selected Messages, Book 2, p. 380
Satan will work his miracles to deceive; he will set up his power as supreme. The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted out--the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place. None but those who have been overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony will be found with the loyal and true, without spot or stain of sin, without guile in their mouths. We must be divested of our self-righteousness and arrayed in the righteousness of Christ.
