TPJS, pg. 15; “The Lord declared to His servants, some eighteen months since, that He was then withdrawing His Spirit from the earth; and we can see that such is the fact, for not only the churches are dwindling away, but there are no conversions, or but very few: and this is not all, the governments of the earth are thrown into confusion and division; and Destruction, to the eye of the spiritual beholder, seems to be written by the finger of an invisible hand, in large capitals, upon almost every thing we behold.”
John 14:23; “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”
Jesus never declared that He was withdrawing His Spirit from the earth. That would put Him in the same category as the Mormon god who can’t keep promises. The Lord promised He would never leave us. The word “abode” means to tarry. Why would He say this if He didn’t mean it?
