Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXXII “Three things that render ultimate salvation individual”

As important as the church is, being the apple of His eye (Deut. 32: 10; Ps. 17: 8; Zech 2: 8); the body of Christ (Eph. 1: 22, 23), the bride of Christ (Eph. 5: 22–32 ), the pillar and ground of truth (1 Tim. 3: 15); the flock (Acts 20: 28; 1 Pet. 5: 2); the household of God ( 1 Pet. 4: 7);the Israel of God (Gal. 6: 16); spiritual house; the house of God (1 Pet. 2: 5; 4: 17); the spiritual kingdom (Gal. 4: 26); spiritual Mount Zion (Heb. 12: 22); the Lamb’s wife (Rev. 19: 7), etc.,

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXXI

 Three Fundamentals of ‘Present Truth’ Unites Flock & Sanctifies Soul

     “I saw the necessity of the messengers [pastors, evangelists, Bible teachers] especially, watching and checking all fanaticism wherever they may see it rise. Satan is pressing in on every side, and unless we watch for him, and have our eyes open to his devices and snares, and have on the whole armor of God [Eph. 6: 1-18], the fiery darts of the wicked one will hit us.

     “There are many precious truths contained in the Word of God, but it is ‘present truth’ that the flock [remnant church] needs now. I have seen the dangers of the messengers running off from the important points of present truth, to dwell upon subjects that are not calculated to unite the flock and sanctify the soul. Satan will here take every possible advantage to injure the soul. Read more

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXX

 ‘The Three Stricts and Three Earnests’

 

The above slogan—one of the many numerical designations in Chinese politics, refers to being strict in morals, power, and discipline, as well as honesty in decisions, business, and behavior. Seehttp://news.yahoo.com/china-xi-warns-communist-colleagues.

Doubtless these are noble aspirations and standards to aim for this New Year 2016, not only by Chinese politicians but all political leaders of all nations of the world. However, it leaves out the only way by which and whom mankind can achieve them literally and spiritually: Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father in heaven except through Him. John 14: 6. Thus this slogan will remain consigned to the dustbin of quotable yet unachievable quotes. If it does not bring about heart transformation, it is mere assent to the truth, a popular self-deception. Read more

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXIX

Rest, Peace, and Health: Wish List for 2016

A Happy New Year to all.  If we have a true understanding of God’s law, we will not compare our character and spiritual growth by the character of others.  We will judge our own lives by the standard of God’s law which is “holy, just, and good.”Rom. 7: 12.

Twelve months have passed on to eternity never more to return. Have we increased correspondingly in faith,hope, and charity (1 Cor. 13: 13)? “Faith,” says E.G. White, “is not a happy flight of feeling; it is simply taking God at His word and believing because God said He would do this.”  A.T. Jones wrote: “Faith is the expecting the word of God to do what it says, and depending upon that word to do what it says.” (Lessons on Faith, p. 16).  Read more
