The Reform Movement is not fulfilling the description of the Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 126: “The sick were healed, and other miracles were wrought. . . . Hundreds and thousands were seen visiting families. . .” etc. Therefore, it cannot be the right Reformation.
We must say, again, “It is written,” by quoting from Medical Ministry, p. 16:
“There must be a reformation throughout our ranks; the people must reach a higher standard before we can expect the power of God to be manifested in a marked manner for the healing of the sick. . . .” (Emphasis ours.)
It is therefore obvious that Sister White sees this Reformation in the statement from Testimonies, vol. 9 as it will be in its ultimate triumph during the Latter Rain. This coincides with other descriptions of the latter rain experience in which the sick will be healed and signs and wonders will follow the believers. But let us remember that the church militant is not the church triumphant. In the second statement quoted above, it is shown that a reformation is needed now to prepare God’s people for the final triumphant work. When the shaking is finished, then the latter rain will finish the work begun through the power of the Holy Spirit.
