Dear Church Member:

You doubtless know that in the last few years our churches have been invaded, as it were, by a group known as Davidian Seventh-day Adventists whose literature is entitled The Shepherd’s Rod. Though we as a people have done everything in our power to keep them down and out, yet in spite of it they continue to grow and to stay in our churches. And as it was reported that they have spread and are still spreading all over the Adventist world even more than is apparent, a special investigating committee was organized. The committee, moreover, was made up of men from many of the states and from foreign countries, and as the work was done by both personal contact and correspondence, it covered practically all the Adventist world. Accordingly, the information in its report is not someone’s hearsay, but rather first-hand information gathered from many men the world over. {UAL: 1.1}

Soon after our work began, we found that the greater number of Rodists were underground readers and believers. And though those who came out openly for the Rod and were consequently cast out of the churches, yet they, too, are still in the churches, walking side by side with the members! These lines, therefore, are addressed to you because we feel sure that you are mindful of God’s voice and are anxious to do the right thing at the right time in coming up to the help of the Lord. {UAL: 1.2}

As we observed the trouble our people were in, we thought it wise to make a more thorough investigation of the Rod’s fast-growing activity than at first was planned. The enclosed leaflet contains the full report of what the committee found and what its final convictions and recommendations are. The report, you will note, undertakes first to explain what the Denomination is up against, and next to point out the remedy for all such un-Adventist activities that are now in our midst. As you, of course, would be interested to know not only the finding but also the remedy, and how you, too, may enlist in the crusade against evil doers, we feel certain that you will want to study the leaflet carefully. {UAL: 1.3}

Faithfully yours,

"'Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.'
John 14:1-3.Jesus Christ
"Long have we waited for our Saviour's return. But none the less sure is the promise. Soon we shall be in our promised home. There Jesus will lead us beside the living stream, flowing from the throne of God, and will explain to us the dark providence through which on this earth He brought us in order to perfect our characters.
1SC9:1.2Bro. V. T. Houteff
There we shall behold with undimmed vision the beauties of Eden restored. Casting at the feet of the Redeemer the crowns that He has placed on our heads, and touching our golden harps, we shall fill all heaven with praise to Him that sitteth on the throne."
