Some of these agents of Satan were affecting the bodies of some of the
; those that they could not deceive and draw away from the truth by a
satanic influence. Oh! that all could get a view of it as God revealed it to
me, that they might know more of the wiles of Satan, and be on their guard. I
saw that Satan was at work in these ways to distract, deceive, and draw away
God's people, just now in this sealing time. I saw some who were not standing
stiffly for present truth. Their knees were trembling, and their feet were
sliding; because they were not firmly planted on the truth, and the covering
of Almighty God could not be drawn over them while they were thus trembling.

There is nothing that the great deceiver fears so much as
that we shall become acquainted with his devices. The
better to disguise his real character and purposes, he has
caused himself to be so represented as to excite no stronger
emotion than ridicule or contempt. He is well pleased to


be painted as a ludicrous or loathsome object, misshapen,
half animal and half human. He is pleased to hear his
name used in sport and mockery by those who think
themselves intelligent and well-informed.

Cut away from yourselves everything that savors of
hypnotism, the science by which satanic agencies work.
