A LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER
The Shepherd’s Rod Volume 1
The Shepherd’s Rod Volume 1, page 14, paragraph 1, line 3 (page 5 of The Shepherd’s Rod Series of Volumes and Tracts) should read: “I feel confident, Elder Andross, that the brethren in Southern California will find blessing in reviewing the teachings of Scripture concerning the 144,000 and bringing to bear upon these teachings whatever of light there may be in the published writings of the Spirit of Prophecy, and as prayerful consideration is given the matter in all its bearings, I believe that God will make the truth sufficiently clear to make possible the avoidance of needless and unprofitable questions not vital to the salvation of precious souls.”
The Shepherd’s Rod Volume 2
Tract No. 3
In page 71 of Tract Number 3, paragraph 2, line 9 (page 221 of The Shepherd’s Rod Series of Volumes and Tracts) the words “then the remaining wicked are destroyed by the seven angels’ pouring out the seven last plagues” should be substituted for the words “then the seven angels pour out the seven last plagues”, making it read as follows: “The reason that the church is figuratively not “Babylon” is that it is called Jerusalem (Ezek. 9:4,8), and from among the good therein, the wicked (the tares) are destroyed, taken out, by the six men with the slaughter weapons (Ezek. 9:6-9), and then afterward the good (the wheat) are gathered in “the barn;” while from among the wicked in Babylon, the just (“My people”) are called out and gathered into the barn, and then the remaining wicked are destroyed by the seven angels’ pouring out the seven last plagues.”
he charts on pages 612 and 614 of The Shepherd’s Rod Series of Symbolic Codes were unintentionally included in the book. In as much these charts are used by Davidians, we have not been able to confirm that they were published by the prophet, Brother V. T. Houteff. We are yet to establish their origin. The original chart of Ezekiel Chapter 4, published by the prophet, can be found in The Shepherd’s Rod Volume 1, page 134 (page 35 of The Shepherd’s Rod Series of Volumes and Tracts).
