Who and what will purify the SDA Church?
The Publishing Ministry, p. 170
The Lord will work to purify His church. I tell you in truth, the Lord is about to turn and overturn in the institutions called by His name. Just how soon this refining process will begin I cannot say, but it will not be long deferred. He whose fan is in His hand will cleanse His temple of its moral defilement. He will thoroughly purge His floor.
The Acts of the Apostles, pp. 524-525
God's care for His heritage is unceasing. He suffers no affliction to come upon His children but such as is essential for their present and eternal good. He will purify His church, even as Christ purified the temple during His ministry on earth. All that He brings upon His people in test and trial comes that they may gain deeper piety and greater strength to carry forward the triumphs of the cross.
Spiritual Gifts, Vol. 2, p. 284

Early Writings, p. 270

Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 1, p. 216

Ibid., Vol. 5, p. 109
Every man must purify his soul through obedience to the truth, and with an eye single to God's glory he must abase self and exalt Jesus and His grace.
