Are We Preparing for the Latter Rain?– Part XXXII

A Temperate People (continued)

Apostle Paul wrote: “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now theydo it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9: 24-27, N.K.J.V.

Some think temperance has only to do with (a) temperament and temper, as in temper tantrums, etc., or to (b) the Temperance Movements advocating abstinence from alcohol that began in the 1830’s known as the Prohibition Era in the U.S. (See Prohibition Timeline at About.com American History). “The first national Prohibition amendment was proposed by Henry W. Blair of New Hampshire as early as 1876 . . . Read more

Are We Preparing for the Latter Rain?– Part XXXI

A Temperate People

 

TEMPERANCE or self-control which invariably includes self-denial and self-sacrifice, is one of the nine “fruit,” that is, evidence or manifestation that the third Person of the Godhead is indeed dwelling in us and that we are submitting to the divine government, management, and control with our informed consent and willing cooperation.

These nine fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit are the very graces and virtues that proud yet suffering humanity have pining for.  Yes, the words, their definitions and concepts are subjects constantly expounded on, perhaps sermonized too often in the pulpits of Christendom; but few actually possess them. It is the counterfeits, crafted by Satan, the master deceiver that mankind has been so strangely obsessed with in spite of their multiplying consequences of suffering, disease, pain, and moral wretchedness.

Apostle Paul’s urgent plea for all Christians in these last days is: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds (works,K.J.V.) of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is light that makes everything visible. This why it is said: Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of opportunity [redeeming the time, K.J.V.], because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5: 9-15, N.I.V. Read more

Sunday, May 11, is Mother’s Day. It’s the mothers, not the day that truly matters.

Responsible, especially godly mothers are the hardest-working, often unrecognized and certainly “uncanonized” living saints on earth by heaven’s estimate for they have a position of a missionary in the highest sense and are co-workers with the minister in the home. They joyfully yet solemnly realize that: “The child’s first teacher is the mother. During the period of greatest susceptibility and most rapid development his education to a great degree is in her hands. To her first is given opportunity to mold the character for good or evil. She should understand the value of her opportunity, and above every other teacher, should be qualified to use it to the best account.”- E. G. White, Child Guidance, p. 63. Southern Publishing Asso.1953.  Read more

A Working People

 

The wise man said, “Go to the ant thou sluggard, consider her ways and be wise.” Proverbs 6: 6 (see verses 7-11). Jesus said, “The harvest truly is great but the laborers are few.” Luke 10:2“Occupy till I come.” Luke19:13. We need to pay closer attention to what “the Lord of the harvest” meant by “harvest” and “laborer” particularly in the context of preparing for the Latter Rain. Inspiration says, “The harvest of life is character, and it is this that determines destiny, both for this life and the life to come.” (Ed 109); it is “the end of probationary time,” “the end of the world.” See parable of the wheat and tares, Matt. 13: 24-30, 37-43 and Christ’s Object Lessons, pp. 72, 75.

DARE TO BE A DANIEL?

meat and wine pix

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Daniel 1:8

Daniel during the time of King Nebuchadnezzar did not object to schooling he will undergo nor to the change of name; but he would not accept the portion of the king’s meat nor his wine. Daniel knew that partaking of the king’s meat and wine has Read more
