End-Time Tower Builders and Idolaters

QUOTES FOR THE WEEK

      “It is as easy to make an idol of false doctrines and theories as to fashion an idol of wood or stone.”

— Both from the inspired pen of Ellen G. White

Every rationally-minded Christian already knows it by heart. Reminders not needed.

So think those who, in their hearts, say, “I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ Read more

“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread underfoot forty and two months.” Rev. 11: 1, 2.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified . . . . Read more

The Council of Trent of 1562, Archbishop Del Fosso: How the Foundation of Roman Catholic Authority was Laid

Jesus told the religious leaders of His day: “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:  . . . In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandments of God, you hold the Traditions of men . . . All too well you reject the commandments of God that you may keep your Tradition . . .  Making the word of God of no effect through your Tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7: 6, 7, 9, 13, N.K.J.V.

Is our religion the religion of man? or of Christ and the Bible?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

Is our religion the religion of man? or of Christ and the Bible?

   

     “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent; hath He said, and shall not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall He not make it good?” Numbers 23: 19.

To anyone first reading this column and wonders who and what are paramount and supreme in all its articles and reports, look no further. First, it is God the Father in Christ Jesus as revealed in the wonders of creation but especially in the Bible through enlightenment of the Holy Spirit upon the mind of the searcher, and, the plan of redemption of the gospel. So before we return to the topic of the series, consider the following from the inspired pen of Ellen G. White, based on the Bible which more than adequately articulates the foregoing:   Read more

The Beginning and the End: The Old and the New  

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

The Beginning and the End: The Old and the New  

         Then He who sat on a throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write for these words are true and faithful. And He said to me, It is done! I Am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.” Rev. 21 5-7, N.K.J.V. 

All too quickly the old year ends in two days from this last Friday of 2017, and the New Year 2018 begins. Like sunset, then sunrise…..and a new day begins in your life and mine. Or are we meeting, actually beginning the New Year with the “same old, same old” mentality, bad habits, unChristlike traits, pride and vanity, “the works of the flesh” instead of the “fruits of the spirit,” into the next year? Will it be really new? In what sense?   Read more

Christmas 2017 and New Year 2018 Message

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA       

Christmas 2017 and New Year 2018 Message

How would you say if your relatives and friends celebrated your birthday with you in your home by doting on everyone else except you, and doing everything else that had little or nothing to do with the significance of your birth? “Unbelievable.” And you are right.

But the majority of the Christmas revelers have been doing just that where the groundwork for our eternal salvation from sin by the Creator eternally becoming a man of the same flesh and blood nature subject to all temptations man is beset with—the mysterious incarnation, not through Mary’s alleged “Immaculate conception”— but by the plan of redemption, is concerned.

God’s Expanded Number 7 Plan- No. 2

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA  

 Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 4   

God’s Expanded Number 7 Plan- No. 2

     The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth,purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever. Psalms 12, 6, 7, K.J.V.

 

One of Almighty God’s first spoken and written  warnings to fallen mankind, particularly addressed to those set apart and tasked with the grave responsibility of safeguarding the purity of God’s word that has been “purified seven times,” acting as Holy-Spirit-guided expositors of Christ’s everlasting gospel, magnifying His law as the transcript and standard of His merciful and just character,  and teaching the only plan of salvation devised by the Godhead as detailed in the sanctuary message—the spiritual guardians of the people—is also the same last warning to be recorded after earth’s final merciful warnings given in the three and fourth angels’ messages of Revelation 14 and 18, respectively.

God’s Expanded Number 7 Plan

 

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”-

Jesus Christ to His disciples, Matthew 24: 6, 7, N.K.J.V.

Americans celebrated, many in the same modern hedonistic spirit of other holiday celebrations and festivities, “eating, drinking, and surfeiting” as the antediluvians did just before the Flood but with special emphasis on gorging on unhealthy (non-vegetarian) hot dogs and gleefully watching their hard-earned dollars literally go up in flames they themselves lit in—fireworks—while this, according to the Hunger Project, is  the stomach-churning reality taking place in the midst of the food glut in America, the world’s largest Christian nation: Read more

Five are Foolish, Five Wise of the Ten Virgins – Part 2

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

And he is oft the wisest man,

Who is not wise at all.

William Wordsworth, The Oak and the Broom

————

       Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet himSee Matthew 25: 1-13.
