‘BACK TO EDEN’ MEANS MUCH MORE THAN ORIGINAL DIET

May 27, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

‘BACK TO EDEN’ MEANS MUCH MORE THAN ORIGINAL DIET

“God the Father always worked through His Son, both in creation and redemption (Gen. 1:1-24; Col. 1:15-19; Heb. 1:1-3,8].  Therefore it was Jesus Christ who created ‘the heavens and the earth’ and ‘rested the seventh day.’

‘All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.  He was in the world and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.’ John 1:3,10,KJV.

CLAIMING THE MERITS OF CHRIST’S CLOSING WORK OF ATONEMENT

May 5, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

CLAIMING THE MERITS OF CHRIST’S CLOSING WORK OF ATONEMENT

Mainstream Christianity clings to the mistaken idea that Christ’s work for the redemption of sinners ended at the cross. When Jesus said, “It is finished” as He was expiring, it was the sacrifice of His life and and shedding of His blood that was “finished” as the “Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.”

He then resurrected after His death to become our merciful High Priest, pleading His own blood in behalf of all penitent sinners who are repenting and confessing their sins. This is how the repentant sinner is justified by the blood of Christ, never by his “works!!”

How God Chose Gideon’s Elite Force of Three Hundred Men

How God Chose Gideon’s Elite Force of Three Hundred Men

   “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.” Ezekiel 3: 17, vs 18-21; cf. 33: 1-20.

The gospel-prophet said: “His watchmen are blind, they are all ignorant; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yes, they are greedy dogs which never have enough. And they are shepherds who cannot understand; they all look to their own way, everyone for his own gain, from his own territory.” Isa. 56: 10, 11, NKJV.

The counterfeit watchmen are the unfaithful, cowering, self-serving religious shepherds of the flock “who cannot understand,” spiritual guardians of the people, pastors, ministers who are not proclaiming God’s warning messages today. God further describes them as “dumb dogs that cannot bark,” “lazy and greedy dogs which never have enough.” If ever!

THE WATCHMAN’S SOLEMN WORK & RESPONSIBILITY

Mar 2 2020
FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE WATCHMAN’S SOLEMN WORK & RESPONSIBILITY

“Watchman, what of the night? The watchman said, If you will inquire, inquire; Return! Come back!” Isa. 21:10,11. 

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore, hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me.” Eze.28:17 (Note: read verses 18-21 before moving on!). 

“In a special sense Seventh-day Adventist’s have been set in the world as watchmen and light-bearers [cf. Matt. 5:14-16].

To them has been entrusted the last warning for a perishing world. On them is shining wonderful light from the word of God. They have been given a work of the most solemn import—the proclamation of the first, second and third angels’ messages.

February 3, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE NATURE OF THE PREP CLEANSING WORK ON EARTH.  

“Having therefore these promises dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves of all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” 2 Cor. 7:1.

The testimony of Jesus says: “Again and again I have been shown that God is trying to lead us back, step by step, to His original design—that man should subsist upon the natural products of the earth.”

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” So, what is it?

Friday Morning Manna

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” So, what is it?

That’s in John 8: 36. It is a solemn thing to die but a much more solemn thing to be alive in these times in which we live in for the people identified in prophecy as “they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” and “have the Spirit of prophecy, which is the testimony of Jesus.”

Rev. 14: 12; 19: 10.

    “Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. Coming events cast their shadows before. The Spirit of God is withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade. Who can read the future? Where is security? There is assurance in nothing that is human or earthly. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movements of their leaders

Everything In The World Is In Agitation

October 21, 2019

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

“Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. The Holy Spirit is gradually yet progressively withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade. Who can read the future? Where is security?

There is assurance in nothing that is human or earthly. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movement of their leaders.
