Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

     “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” Psalms 34: 7, K.J.V.   

Beginning after Pentecost, A.D. 1, the church (in contrast to the world), founded upon Christ as the Rock and Foundation by the first Twelve, undergoes its prophesied periods. It is now in its seventh and final remnant period, symbolized as the “Laodicean church,” spiritually lukewarm yet militant.” See on Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

All throughout its different yet successive periods, particularly now in its commandment-keeping, remnant stage, the faithful of each period who kept the flame of truth burning, well-understood and faithfully applied apostle Paul’s injunction, which says:

Blind Spot: Why seeing is not always believing

Blind Spot: Why seeing is not always believing

Because it pleases us, we believe what we want to believe—even if the preponderance of acceptable evidence and the testimony of credible witness prove otherwise. While unbelief is the obvious symptom, the unconverted heart is the not-too-obvious but real problem. To make matters worse, we misdiagnose the symptom as the cause and try to “cure” it only to be met with temporary relief, if at all, and the same if not a worse situation prevails. Thus untreated, it eventually reaches a deadly “point of no remedy.” Read more

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

“Our standing before God depends, not upon the amount of light we have received,

The Gold Mine of God’s Word: “We have seen only the glimmering of divine glory and of the infinitude of knowledge of wisdom; we have, as it were, been working on the surface of the mine, when rich, golden ore is beneath the surface, to reward the one who will dig for it.”- E.G. White, My Life Today (Devotional), p. 108.

Rejoice: the Spiritual Apostolic Succession Remains Unbroken!

    Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus. Hebrews 3: 1, K.J.V.

From the most comprehensive and inclusive sense possible, based on the preponderance of both Scripture and history evidence, this is how and who “the church that appears to fall but will not.” Why? It’s Cornerstone and Foundation has been from birth, none other than Jesus Christ, the Creator-incarnate, the Master Apostle and High Priest of its faith. His chosen follower-disciples-apostles through centuries of gross moral and doctrinal darkness, superstition, and bitter persecution, have steadily and progressively built this church-temple, empowered by the Holy Spirit and ministered to and defended from all that Satan’s “gates of hell” have schemed and attacked it by.

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

THE THREE PERSONS OF THE GODHEAD (Page 6)

The late Australian evangelist and eminent Bible scholar, Louis F. Were, authored the book The Certainty of the Third Angel’s Message (among others)which I strongly recommend to all serious students of prophecy–not merely as a must-read but as one of your major reference book for interpreting prophecy correctly. Undoubtedly, I have been enlightened by this Scripturally-comprehensive and scholarly work; it certainly has “clarified the issues, creates order in a confusing number of different prophetic portrayals, and installs new confidence in God’s absolute providence. But above all, L.F. Were exalts Christ Jesus as the center of all Scripture and inspires the soul with new hope and enthusiasm to meet the world’s Redeemer.” Read more

The Call of Wisdom from Above is the Call of the Holy Spirit

 

Turn at My reproof; Surely I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My words known to you. Proverbs 1: 23, N.K.J.V.

 The wisdom that is from above (see James 3: 13-18) is given by the Holy Spirit. Its goal is to make the receiver wise in God’s ways and His revealed will for each one of us. Often these come by way of strong reproof to make us turn from our ways and return to Him.

 There are two contrasting kinds and sources of wisdom—the earthly versus the heavenly, the carnal versus the spiritual. The wise man Solomon goes to great lengths to expound upon these two opposing wisdoms having experienced both as no one else has or ever will. He had to be referring to the pursuit of earthly wisdom and its folly when he wrote: “And further my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh.” Ecclesiastes 12: 12. Read more
