The Battle for the ‘Present Truth’

The Battle for the ‘Present Truth’

“Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in present truth.” 2 Peter 1: 12 (see verses 1-11), Authorized Version

Jesus Christ, God Creator in the flesh (John 1: 14; 1 Tim. 3: 16) declared, “I am the way, the truth and the life,” John 14: 6. “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, If you continue (abide) in My Word, you are My disciples indeed, and you shall know truth, and the truth shall set you free.” John 8: 31, 32.

In the plan of salvation the “good news” of the gospel is that Creator of man, condescended in the incarnation to become the Savior of mankind, fallen by sin and hopeless captives of Satan, by delivering, “setting them free” by His life example as a man, “tempted in all points as man is tempted yet without sin,” and by His death on the cross as their substitute and surety from, not in, the power and bondage to sin which is “the transgression of the law (1 John 3: 4). Hence the specific name given Him at His birth, “Thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins.” Matt. 1: 21. Notice here that while Jesus died for the sins of the world, He saves His people from their sins! That is the truth.

NEHEMIAH’S EXAMPLE IN UNIQUE CRISIS RE: GOD’S WORK

March 24 2020
FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

NEHEMIAH’S EXAMPLE IN UNIQUE CRISIS RE: GOD’S WORK.

“I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down.” Neh 4:9. (See Nehemiah ch.6; PK ch.55, “Heathen Plots). — Nehemiah wisely refused to be distracted and thus hinder the grave task entrusted to him to accomplish the critical last phase of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. This lesson is preserved for the guidance of all who are called “repairers of the breach,” “watchmen on the wall,” and light-bearers of the third angels’ message.

THE PRESENT TRUTH OF REVIVAL & REFORMATION

March 4, 2020
MID-WEEK MESSAGE FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:


THE PRESENT TRUTH OF REVIVAL & REFORMATION

“Therefore I will not be negligent to remind you always of those things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth.” 2 Pet. 4:12. 

“We are in the great [anti-typical] day of atonement, when our sins are, by confession and repentance, to go beforehand to judgment [Dan. 8:14; Eccl.12:13,14].

God does not now accept a tame, spiritless testimony from His ministers. Such a testimony would not be present truth. His message for this time must be ‘meat in due season’ [Luke 12:42;2 Tim. 4:2-4] to feed the church of God. . . We must no longer remain on enchanted ground.

Eroding Laws and Institutions of Man: No Assurance in Anything Human or Earthly both of State and Church: Part I

Eroding Laws and Institutions of Man: No Assurance in Anything  Human or Earthly both of State and Church: Part I

What is currently unfolding in rapid-fire action before us, particularly with the state of affairs of the state and its three branches of government— executive, legislative and judicial and their respective institutions, legal, constitutional and traditional, in relation to the church and its religious institutions and powers—will impact and shape our immediate future and eternal destiny in ways most still haven’t yet imagined, figured out or have been fully warned of. (Fast forward: The work of the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14, culminates in “enlightening the whole earth with knowledge of God’s glory” in the last invitation “to come out of her, My people” called the fourth angel of Revelation 18. God, through the Holy Spirit takes over the reins of the work of salvation in the promised latter rain. Then earth’s probation ends.)

WISE OR FOOLISH VIRGINS?

February 5, 2020

MID-WEEK MESSAGE FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

WISE OR FOOLISH VIRGINS?

“Behold, The Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him!” Matt. 25:6.— “The great controversy is nearing its end. Every report of calamity by sea or land is a testimony to the fact that the end to all things is at hand. Wars and rumors of wars declare it. Is there a Christian whose pulse does not beat faster as he anticipates the great events opening before us? The Lord is coming. We hear the footsteps of an approaching God.” OHC346. 

What/Who are the Foolish virgins? “The state of the CHURCH represented by the foolish virgins, is also spoken of as the Laodicean state.” 2RH420.

FAITHFULLY ENDURE TO THE END

MID-WEEK MESSAGE FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

January 22 2020

FAITHFULLY ENDURE TO THE END.

“As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of man.” Matt. 24:27,28.

“He that endures to the end the same shall be saved.” Matt. 10:22.

“As Noah proclaimed his warning message, some listened, and worked with him in building the ark. But they did not endure. Evil influences prevailed. They turned away from the truth and became scoffers (2 Pet. 3:3). 

Thus it shall be in the last days of this earth’s history. Those who today hear the message of truth, but do not believe, will fall amid the MORAL infidelity, even as in Noah’s day those who were not FIRMLY grounded failed to stand till the end of their probation.

The Third Angel and the Fourth Angel

Reading Time: 8 mins

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA                

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE- Part XXXI

 The Third Angel and the Fourth Angel

 See Revelation 14: 6-12. We begin with the “third angel” and the nature of his work and message. The identity and work of the “fourth angel” follows later in this short series.

 Here’s an overview (a review for some): The final loud cry of the Revelation 18 “fourth angel” joins the third angel of Revelation 14, at the right time, whose message and work has been “swelling,” meaning, increasing in scope and magnitude since its start even as the midnight cry, in fulfillment of the parable of the Ten Virgins, joined the second angel’s message in the summer of 1844

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE – Part XXIII

WHAT IS THE TRUE INTERPRETATION OF REVELATION 16: 12-16? (The Threefold Union in the Battle of Armageddon (Continued) 

As we drive down the highway of divine prophetic chronology, we see all sides along the busy route getting more crowded, cluttered, and raucous with competing and confusing sounds of wars and rumors of wars, lilting swan songs, flashing colored lights of various virtual yet really fantasies, alluring peace-and-safety messages cranked out by religious charlatans, the promise of earthly honor, pomp, and prosperity offered by a thousand and one deceived-turned-deceiver purveyors of error, and encounter all manner of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

And yet all these affirm that we are entering the long-looked-after final stretch of the prophetic journey mapped out by the 2300-day prophecy of Daniel 8: 14. The sudden and strange turn of events in the current political cycle in America (more of this later!), the groaning of our tired, abused old earth and its polluted atmosphere manifested in the so-called natural and man-made (never Satan-caused!) catastrophes  etc., all speaking of the approach of the most momentous time of earth’s history.
