Tracing the Advent Movement from Its Embryonic Origins

God still works in mysterious ways. This past Sunday evening, as I sat in front of my computer, my eyes wandered on its own towards a faded, soft-bound book squeezed between larger books arranged in my computer’s book shelf. (I am old school, preferring to read directly from the book itself where my fingers can feel its pages and hear the soft, rustling sound as I flip through them. Sorry. E-books deny me this satisfaction).

Revival, Repentance, and Reformation – Part II

Will All America be Saved?

Michael Thompson of WorldNetDaily (WND) wrote 09/13/2013: “The movement was born in a commentary by Joseph Farah, CEO and founder of WND in April. He explained that while millions flocked to churches and houses of prayer after the terror attacks, ultimately, America did not change its course. “As Jonathan Cahn pointed out so effectively in ‘The Harbinger,’ and ‘The Isaiah 9: 10 Judgment,’ he said, ‘America prayed after Sept. 11, 2001. But America did not repent.” Read more

Revival, Repentance, and Reformation

II Chronicles 7: 14 is the key Scripture of the founders of the 9/11 National Day of Prayer and Repentance movement that many mainstream Christians hope will precipitate an end times spiritual awakening in America.

One of the leading causes for not comprehending, thus misapplying God’s Word is failing to be like the early Berean Christians whom Paul and Silas commended as being “more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.” Acts 17: 20, 11.

The Union that the Third Angel’s Message Warns of

 We wish to remind the reader of the engine that drives this column from its inception, with a quote from the first of my favorite authors:

     “The Holy Spirit’s work is to guide into all truth [John 16: 13, 7-15]. When you depend on the Word of the living God with heart, and mind, and soul, the channel of communication will be unobstructed. Deep, earnest study of the Word under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will give you fresh manna, and the same Spirit will make its use effectual . . . Then it [the soul] will be led into all truth.” – Ellen G. White, With God at Dawn (Devotional), p. 122.

Rev. Kevin Annett, M.A., M.Div., a modern-day Martin Luther in courage, advocate for truth and  liberty, and similarly hated thus, wrote: Read more

What Evangelical Protestants Owe the German Princes?

 

   To think that God acts in history by the intermediary of political actions of man, revolutionary or conservative, is the complete opposite of hope.- Jacques Ellul.

Ellen G. White in her book Great Controversy (1911 ed.), “Protest of the Princes” ch. 11, quoted below, reminds the remainder of evangelical Protestants of the epic history of the heroic struggle the vastly outnumbered German princes put up in refusing to compromise with Rome in the sixteenth century so that in this 21st century, Christianity is still enjoying religious freedom and free access to God’s Word where over a thousand years these were treated as heresies punishable by some of the worst forms of torture invented through the Office of the Inquisition.

What is a Confederacy?

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE- Part XXVII

 What is a Confederacy?

    “For the Lord thus spake to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of the people, saying, Say ye not, a Confederacy [“conspiracy,” NKJV], to all them to whom this people shall say, a Confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, not be afraid. Sanctify the Lord of hosts Himself; and let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread…..To the law and the testimony, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.’ Isaiah 8: 11-13, 20, KJV.

“The question has been asked, What do mean by a Confederacy? Who have formed confederacies? You know that a confederacy is? —a union of men in a work that does not bear the stamp of pure, straightforward, unswerving integrity/” – Ellen G. White, Manuscript 29, 1911/4BC 1142. Read more

Is the Protestantism still alive 500 years after its birth?

We resume from where we left off last week on “The Three-fold Union of Protestantism, Romanism, and Spiritualism” and focus on the Protestant Reformation and where it is today.  There are alternating sad and happy news. But our omniscient and omnipotent Lord and Savior, “the Alpha and Omega,” “the same yesterday, today, and forever” has promised eternal deliverance. Read more

CHURCH CREEDS OVER CHRIST’S CREED  

John chapter 17 records Christ’s valedictory prayer to the Father in heaven for all His true disciples on earth.It embodies the Prince of Peace’s Creed for His true church through all time. Its end result is “the peace that passeth understanding” “which the world cannot give.” Phil. 4: 7; John 14: 27.

Many church creeds do not harmonize with the Bible and yet are upheld as gospel truth by its adherents. Their disharmony with one another through the centuries since after the relatively short spell of the early part of the Reformation in the Old World, and their confused state since then, is the evidence in itself. In desperation they have tried every man-made effort, idea, philosophy, science, and scheme in the grandest scale possible of confederacy to achieve “lasting” unity, peace, and prosperity, hanging their plighted hope on hooks that can only break, vainly hoping for the earthly glory of Solomon’s reign or the “glory that was Rome.”

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
