Six Empowering Topics for Today’s Mothers

My favorite Bible-based author and inspirational writer is Ellen G. White. By study and experience, her voluminous works are indeed, to me, “the lesser light that leads to the greater light”— the Bible and Christ Himself.  Wikipedia says, she wrote “more than 40 books and 5,000 periodical articles during her lifetime” but unfortunately adds, “believed by many deluded readers to have the spiritual gift of prophecy in the Bible.” I do, and am not delusional. Below are some of them, summarized under six favorite Mother-topics of mine, all of them interconnected, for Mother’s Day 2017:

1. QUEEN OF THE HOME

“The king upon his throne has no higher work than has the mother. The mother is queen of her household. She has in her power the molding of her children’s characters, that they might be fitted for the higher, Read more

 Three Godly Mothers

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, mothers-to-be, grandmothers, surrogate mothers, elder sisters taking the role when their mother prematurely or tragically dies or became derelicts through drug addiction, etc., as well as faithful fathers doing double duty when their wives divorced them.

May God give you more love, power, patience, endurance, health of body and mind by the grace imparted by the Holy Spirit to continue making the difference in this confused, troubled, bewitched, antitypical Noachian final generation. Jesus forewarned: Read more

Are We Preparing for the Latter Rain?– Part XXIX 

A Working People (Continued)

 

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

Instruction Concerning a Change in Diet. —“It is a mistake to suppose that muscular strength depends on the use of animal food. The needs of the system can be better supplied, and more vigorous health can be enjoyed without its use. The grains, with fruits, nuts, and vegetables, contain all the nutritive properties necessary to make good blood. These elements are not so well or so fully supplied by a flesh diet. Had the use of flesh been essential to health and strength, animal food would have been included in the diet appointed man in the beginning!

When the use of flesh is discontinued, there is often a sense of weakness, a lack of vigor. Many urge this as evidence that flesh food is essential; but it is because foods of this class are stimulating, because they fever the blood and excite the nerves, that they are so missed! Some will find it as difficult to leave off flesh eating as it is for the drunkard to give up his dram (a small drink, or draft, especially of liquor), but they will be the better for the change.

Unclean Meats

The SDA Dictionary says: “The expression ‘unclean’ is a rendering generally of the Hebrew tame, “ceremonially polluted,” “defiled,” “unclean, and the Greek akathartos, “impure,” “defiled,” “unclean.” Animals declared by the Law of Moses [as given by God himself] to be unfit for either food or sacrifice. The purpose in distinguishing certain animals as clean and others as unclean was apparently two-fold—dietary and religious.

There are Christians who claim that the prohibition to eat the flesh of animals God classified as “unclean” in the Old Testament was only for the Hebrews and Jews, or that such was “done away with at the cross,” implying that it was part of the ceremonial law. This is preposterous if not absurd. First of all Christ did not die on Calvary in order that “non-Jews” and the so-called “New Testament Christians” may eat the flesh of dead animals that He himself declared as unclean and an abomination! Second, the animals declared as unclean in the days of Moses and Noah, are still the same animals today! That is the reason why the Bible goes as far as to name them specifically. See Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14: 1-20; cf. Genesis 7: 1-3.  Read more
