Understanding the Spiritual Kingdom of God

“And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of should come, He answered them and said, ‘The kingdom of God cometh not with observation (outward show, margin): neither shall they say, ‘Lo here! or lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Luke 17: 20, 21, KJV, Authorized Version

According to the Bible a king is: “A male sovereign in whom is invested supreme authority over a tribe or nation. Generally, rule is for life and succession is on a hereditary basis. That over which he rules is called a kingdom.

“The kings of ancient heathen nations were often considered as deities or direct descendants of a deity. [The Egyptian kings, known as pharaohs, were worshipped as deities in the first atheistic world empire, ancient Egypt].

GOD’S LAW: MORE TO BE DESIRED THAN FINE GOLD

June 29 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

GOD’S LAW: MORE TO BE DESIRED THAN FINE GOLD

“Therefore I love Thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.” Psalms 119: 127, KJV.

“In these days of peril shall we show less devotion to the truth of God, and less fervent attachment to His Law, than in former years? The very condition of things exists which Christ declared would be [by way of prophecy], prior to His second coming in power and glory.

“The prevailing ungodliness tends to paralyze and even to destroy true faith and piety. But THIS IS THE VERY TIME when the GOLD of Christian integrity will shine brighter, in contrast to the DROSS of hypocrisy and corruption. Now is the time for Christ’s CHOSEN to show their devotion to His service—the time for all His followers to BEAR THE NOBLEST TESTIMONY for their Master by standing FIRM against the prevailing evil.

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.

THE SABBATH IN THE ADVENT MOVEMENT

June 3, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE SABBATH IN THE ADVENT MOVEMENT

“Thus saith the Lord, Keep us Judgment, and do justice: for My salvation is NEAR to come, and My righteousness to be REVEALED.” Isa.56:1, KJV (See verses 2-8; cf. Rev.18).

“When does Isaiah’s prophecy apply? See Heb. 9: 26, 28; 10:10, 12,14; 1 Pet.1:4,5. The gathering of Sabbath-keepers just before Christ’s second advent in Isa. 56: 2-8.

“This gathering under the Advent Movement since 1844 includes every ‘man’ who ‘keepeth the Sabbath FROM POLLUTING IT, and keepeth his hand FROM DOING ANY EVIL.’ It also includes ‘the sons of the stranger’ and ‘the eunuchs that KEEP MY SABBATHS.’

WHICH COMES FIRST: NATIONAL RUIN OR NATIONAL APOSTASY?

April 13, 2020
FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

WHICH COMES FIRST: NATIONAL RUIN OR NATIONAL APOSTASY?

“It is time for Thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void Thy law.” Ps. 119: 126, KJV.

Who is “they” and when, how and why will they “make void God’s law?  These should be the questions foremost in the minds of the people of the sanctuary and prophecy at this very time of earth’s history.

The COVID-19 crisis that our beloved nation (and the whole world) is currently struggling with, is packed with more profound prophetic ramifications than most realize, the ignorance, which in itself, is the greater crisis and calamity, as it nears eternal consequences.

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.)

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.”

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

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.
