Last Call for End-Time Retreat / Camp Meeting 2011, Aug. 2-7th

TIME : August 2-7th 2011,


Greetings brothers and Sisters in Christ,

There has never been a generation in the history of this world that has lived in a time as solemn and significant as we are in today. God is seeking to save us and our families at all cost. Among the agencies that God is using are the end-time retreats and camp meetings that are focused on Jesus and His truth for these last days that are to prepare a people to meet Him. We are told in inspiration:

“Our annual camp-meetings are of great importance, and all who possibly can should attend them. They should feel that the Lord requires this of them. If God’s people neglect the privileges which he has provided for them to become strong in him, they will grow weaker and weaker and have less and less desire to consecrate all to him‘. The object of these holy convocation meetings is that the brethren may be separated from business cares and burdens, and devote a few days exclusively to seeking the Lord.” {RH, August 15, 1882 par. 1}

As we have mentioned in a previous posting, our annual end-time camp meeting / retreat will be held in Gallant, Alabama at Camp Sumatanga, it is a beautiful place and the accomodations have been made very economical and reasonable that all who desire may attend.

 Oh friends, the signs of the times that are filling this world show us the need to come aside and rest a while. To prepare for what is soon to take place as an overwhelming surprise. One of the reasons why we are sending out this courtesy letter is because the personal spaces are limited, and many of the rooms have been taken by new persons who have never attended the camp meeting. If you are a regular attendee and have not registered we encourage you to do so without delay because we may not be able to accommodate you and we want all to come who desire to have part in this holy convocation. God is seeking to do mighty things in this camp meeting!

The times we live in demands a real experience and we are working with God to facilitate a camp meeting that will do more than give us information but will help move us into a deeper experience as individuals and families, for both young and old. We will have several surprise features for our camp meeting / end-time retreat this year (both intensely practical and very tangible to help families that are seeking to follow God’s plan in these last days) and we are sure all will be blessed and none will want to miss out!

For each to get the highest possible experience it will be necessary for each individual and family to begin the work of consecration from now. We are told that many fail of receiving the blessings that God desires to give in such gatherings and holy convocations because they have failed to make the necessary preparation (this another reason for this letter). Notice the following inspired counsel:

The object of these holy convocation meetings is that the brethren may be separated from business cares and burdens, and devote a few days exclusively to seeking the Lord. But some of these meetings are far from being what the Lord designed they should be. The people come unprepared for the visitation of God’s Holy Spirit.” {RH, August 15, 1882 par. 1}

   “Would that I could impress upon ministers and people the necessity of a deeper work of grace in the heart, and more thorough preparation to enter into the spirit and labor of our camp-meetings, that they may receive the greatest possible benefit from the meeting. These yearly gatherings may be seasons of special blessing, or they may be a great injury to spirituality. Which shall they be to you, dear reader? It remains for each to decide for himself. {RH, August 15, 1882 par. 16}

“Here is a work for families to engage in before coming up to our holy convocations. Let the preparation for eating and dressing be a secondary matter, but let deep heart-searching commence at home. Pray three times a day, and like Jacob be importunate. At home is the place to find Jesus; then take him with you to the meeting, and how precious will be the hours you spend there. But how can you expect to feel the presence of the Lord and see his power displayed, when the individual work of preparation for that time is neglected… Oh, how much is lost by neglecting this important work! … Let pride be crucified, and the soul be clad with the priceless robe of Christ’s righteousness, and what a meeting you will enjoy. It will be to your soul even as the gate of Heaven.  {RH, August 15, 1882 par. 7, 8}


 Oh friends, time is short. Let us prepare as never before. Please do not delay. Sign up today and work to bring friends and families, so that together we may all truly have “an upper room experience in preparation for the latter rain”. Please take the time to pause and pray right where you are and seriously ask God if He wants you to attend this holy convocation. And even if you weren’t planning on it but today you hear the voice of God telling you that He wants you to be a part of this experience,  Please call # (256) 683-0959 or (931) 363-2059 for speedy registration. Time is Almost finished and what we do, we must do quickly.

Some Will Wait until it is too late!

 Then I saw Jesus lay off His priestly attire and clothe Himself with His most kingly robes. Upon His head were many crowns, a crown within a crown. Surrounded by the angelic host, He left heaven. The plagues were falling upon the inhabitants of the earth. Some were denouncing God and cursing Him. Others rushed to the people of God and begged to be taught how they might escape His judgments. But the saints had nothing for them. The last tear for sinners had been shed, the last agonizing prayer offered, the last burden borne, the last warning given. The sweet voice of mercy was no more to invite them. When the saints, and all heaven, were interested for their salvation, they had no interest for themselves. Life and death had been set before them. Many desired life, but made no effort to obtain it. They did not choose life, and now there was no atoning blood to cleanse the guilty, no compassionate Saviour to plead for them, and cry, “Spare, spare the sinner a little longer.” All heaven had united with Jesus, as they heard the fearful words, “It is done. It is finished.” The plan of salvation had been accomplished, but few had chosen to accept it. And as mercy’s sweet voice died away, fear and horror seized the wicked. With terrible distinctness they heard the words, “Too late! too late!”  {EW 281.1}
