Brothers and sisters, in general conference we offer our testimonies in conjunction with other testimonies that will come, because one way or another God will have His voice heard. “I sent you out to testify and warn the people,” the Lord has said to His prophets.
“[And] after your testimony cometh the testimony of earthquakes, . . . of thunderings, . . . lightnings, and . . . tempests, and the voice of the waves of the sea heaving themselves beyond their bounds. . . .
“And angels shall . . . [cry] with a loud voice, sounding the trump of God.”
Now, these mortal angels who come to this pulpit have, each in his or her own way, sounded “the trump of God.” Every sermon given is always, by definition, both a testimony of love and a warning, even as nature herself will testify with love and a warning in the last days.
