---Today our subject look at some of Ellen White’s statements about the readiness for the near coming of Christ.

---She asked, just like Isaiah, that one should not be distressed about the Time of Trouble.

---It seems as if the Time of Trouble agents will be a fierce people (Isaiah 33:19a) unintelligible speech (33:19b), stammering tongue (33:19c), no one can comprehend them (33:19b), no one can understand (33:19d). That is when God will gather His people maybe at Resurrection (Isaiah 33:20a).

---In the Time of Trouble God is with His people (Isaiah 41:10a). He will help them (verse 10b). Those who angered the remnant will be ashamed (Isaiah 41:11a). Quarrelsome and warmongers will become nothing (41:12a-b).

---Evil ones will experience need of water during the Plaques of the Time of Trouble, says Isaiah 41:17a, but God will provide for the remnant rivers, springs, pool of water and fountains of water and there it will be green in the desert (41:19a). The remnant will learn through this that God creates things for them (Isaiah 41:20).

---Ellen White and Isaiah is talking about the same events and the same ways in which God is going to take care of the righteous in those evil times.

---Looking back in history we may answer why there was a delay of the Second Coming.

---God may wanted to show the heavenly beings, that even if technology reigns like AI and other advances, then still the human nature is deteriorated, degenerated, evil, violent, selfish and sinful.

---There is no salvation by technology!

---In no culture of the past, in no time in history had they AI and Electro-vehicles like in the digital age. There was no digital generation in history.

---Misunderstanding is through separation and distance. By bringing people by airplanes quickly to others, some thought that there will be understanding and unity.

---Not so. Fast airplanes are used for war and missiles attached to them for killing. Behind technology is the same sinful human being of history.

---So are you clinging to your smartphone because of an inner feeling of loneliness?

---People are lonely in elevators, trains, busses in modern society and their escape or contact by smartphone makes them feel happy.

---Is feel happy real happiness? Is it happiness to get old with your smartphone and the children do not call? Are you waiting for their calls? Is it not better to focus on Christ, His Word, His doctrines, His life on earth and walk and talk with Him moment by moment, getting prayers answered by the Holy Spirit immediately sometimes? That is real happiness.

---Try to stop watching TV, smartphone news, stocks,, dramas, plays, comics and cartoons, games. Read only text. See how your life change. Especially your brain openness. Available for God’s speaking to you louder than before.
