FOR THE FIRST MONDAY 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

FOR THE FIRST MONDAY 2020.

“Create In me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Ps. 51:10.

– “Another year opens its fair unwritten pages before you. The recording angel is ready to write. Your course of action will determine what shall be traced by him. You may make your future life good or evil; and this will determine for you whether the year upon which you have entered will be to you a happy new year.

The Four Different Natures Contrasted

Friday Morning Manna                                                     June 21, 2019

The Four Different Natures Contrasted

In the Bible there are four distinctly separate natures that follow this descending order: divine, angelic, human, and animal. They are never interchangeable, divisible, or evolutionary.

The Divine Nature. The Godhead, comprised of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are alone divine. To them exclusively belongs and emanates from mysterious life—original, unborrowed and underived. Thus, life is the greatest manifestation of God. These “three who are One” (1 John 3: 4) are alone immortal, uncreated, eternal, having no beginning and no end. Without God there is no life and without life there is nothing, not even void, much less a “dark hole.” God in Christ is the great I AM. “I AM that I AM” means not subject to time nor to space, circumstance, or anything. As Jesus declared to the unbelieving Jews: “Verily I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” not “I was.” (John 8: 58).

God’s Prophets Demystify His Mysteries at their Appointed Time but Especially Today

God’s Prophets Demystify His Mysteries at their Appointed Time but Especially Today 

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3: 7, N.K.J.V.

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Deut. 29: 29. “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Prov. 29: 18, K.J.V. The NKJV reads: “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint.”

From the Seventh Trumpet to the Last Trumpet

Friday Morning Manna                   February 22, 2019

From the Seventh Trumpet to the Last Trumpet

     “The second woe is past. Behold the third woe cometh quickly.” Revelation 11: 14.

“Behold, I come quickly.” Revelation 22: 12.

Clarifications need to be made quickly regarding quickly as used in the above verses. Some make the same application of the first with Christ’s last recorded promise, “Behold, I come quickly,” suggesting that the former means a longer lapse of time rather than commencing immediately. John penned these words, they say, in A.D. 70, and today, two thousand years after, Christ has not yet come. That is not quite quick, or so it seems.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

Friday Morning Manna                  February 15, 2019

Quotable Quote

“The Word is a power, a sword, in the hands of the human agent, but the Holy Spirit, in its vital power, is the efficiency to impress the mind.”

 E.G. White, Sons & Daughters, p. 30.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

If you have been lackadaisically lumbering along on the treadmill of prophetic mediocrity, self-assured, Laodicean-like, that you are already settled and nestled in a safe space, just awaiting the amazing that will happen when Christ returns “any minute now,” please be warned: Though appearing to be a good read from many a religious literature, and easy listening sounds emanating from many pulpits in Christendom, this, in fact, is anything but the sure thing.

What Happened to the Movement Linking the Exodus and Advent Movements?

What Happened to the Movement Linking the Exodus and Advent Movements?

 “Thus says the Lord: Keep My justice, and do righteousness, for My salvation is about to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.” Isiah 56: 1, 2, N.K.J.V.

We saw that the Protestant Reformation Movement was the connecting link between the Exodus in the Old and the Advent Movement in the New Testament.  God commanded the gospel prophet, Isaiah, to declare then and more specifically in in its antitypical application: “Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet. Tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

The ‘Mystery of God is Finished Up’ During the Seventh Trumpet– the Climactic Point of the Great Controversy!

Friday Morning Manna                 December 28, 2018

The ‘Mystery of God is Finished Up’ During the Seventh Trumpet– the Climactic Point of the Great Controversy!

Before zeroing into seventh trumpet, we must bear in mind this bigger picture: the seven trumpets are mated with the prophecies of Daniel chapters 2 and 7. Uriah Smith says: “The blowing of the trumpets by the seven angels comes as a complement to the prophecy of Daniel 2 and 7, beginning with the breaking up of the old Roman Empire into its ten divisions. In the first 4 trumpets [which we covered in past issues], we have a description of the special events which marked Rome’s fall.”- Daniel and the Revelation, p. 475.

Second Half of the Seven Thunders: the Moral Fall of the Churches

This Thanksgiving, let’s thank God for religious liberty and helping us better understand what the “seven thunders” were–a delineation of clustered events and time prophecies that would be understood only after the events had accomplished their appointed work. These are:
