Should the Remnant of God be Armed with Guns or other Weapons?

When the shaking comes and the world is "in fear of things coming upon the earth" and Babylon calls (with civic penalties) for all to return to "worship" and "save the nation".

God delivers the SDA church triumphant remnant who appears as about to fall when they are surrounded out in the wilderness. It is During the Time of Jacob's Trouble That the Church Triumphant Appears as About to Fall but Does not Fall

"The people of God will then be plunged into those scenes of affliction and distress described by the prophet as the time of Jacob's trouble.... Jacob's night of anguish, when he wrestled in prayer for deliverance from the hand of Esau (Genesis 32:24-30), represents the experience of God's people in the time of trouble....Jacob's company, unarmed and defenseless, SEEMED ABOUT TO FALL HELPLESS VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE AND SLAUGHTER." E.G. White, The Great Controversy, (1911 edition), p. 616.

"When we learn the power of His word, we shall not follow the suggestions of Satan in order to obtain food or to save our lives. Our only questions will be, What is God’s command? and what His promise? Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other."   The Desire of Ages, p. 121.2

In the end of time, which is now, Babylon is apostate Christianity, including the apostate SDA church militant as a sister to fallen Babylon. 

Psalm 91:7-10

King James Version (KJV)

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
