Many of my friends and family and many church members say the same thing, but SOP tells us of the little time of trouble which clearly we are seeing, followed by the time to give the Loud Cry, then the times such as never was of the end... https://m.egwwritings.org/en/book/39.24#27
Notice the final movements...
"The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude. The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones." Testimonies for the Church 9:11 (1909).
Many will find themselves very surprised and undone by the quickness of the end time events..
IF this quoted material that was submitted was actually all there was to it, I am not sure one would have a good point, even then. The fact that a non-Biblical Canon book was quoted first here belies a much bigger problem.
"The worst foes of my spiritual life have never been hostile circumstance."
