The Promise of His Spirit . . . Received through simple faith !

Pentecost2a     “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you, but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power* (dunamis – miraculous, miracle, abundance, ability, strength, possible, to be able) from on high !”   Luke 24:49 & ref: Galatians 3:14

 

Ask, and it shall be given you; Seek, and ye shall find; Knock, and it shall be
opened unto you; for every-one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7.

How many who ask a blessing of the Lord would be surprised should they receive their request. Of what is this want of expectation (lack of faith) that our prayers will be answered, a proof? Continue reading

By Linda Nathan

Are you wondering if there’s a problem with involvement in the martial arts? You say your neighbor’s little boy is taking a class, and now your son wants to, too? Several women in your office are learning it for self-defense. And, why, even your church has a class! Perhaps you yourself are involved but feel uncertain and want more information.How can anything be wrong?

How can you tell?

This booklet’s aim is to help you understand and decipher the underlying dangers and deceptions of the martial arts. As we present this material, we remember the words of Scripture, which exhort us:

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

A True Story -

“Tonie, I don’t get it. How can you be a Christian and teach karate too?” Continue reading


Health Reform & the 2nd Coming of Christ !

There is to be no division between the medical missionary work and the gospel ministry. Medical missionary work is to be to the third angel’s message as the right arm to the body. Both are to work in harmony. Then the Salvation of the Lord will be revealed !

Salvation = Deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration !

     God not only desires His servants to have faith in the work of His institutions, He desires them to go further than this. They should realize that God wishes them to be living examples of what it means to be well, physically and spiritually. He wants them to show that the Truth has accomplished a great work for them.

Christ – the End of the Law ?

righteousness 3     “The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is well pleased for His Righteousness’ sake; for He will magnify the law, and make it honourable . . . !”   Isaiah 42:21

And this is the name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS !”   Jeremiah 23:5-6

“And lo a Voice from heaven, saying . . . This is My beloved Son, in Whom I Am well pleased !”   Matthew 3:16-17 Continue reading


Out of the Cities . . . !

As we near the close of time, there will be greater and still greater external parade of heathen power; heathen deities will manifest their signal power, and will exhibit themselves before the cities of the world; . . . . (are we not seeing this manifest through the movies and music of today ?)

     And this delineation has already begun to be fulfilled. By a variety of images the Lord Jesus represented to John the wicked character and seductive influence of those who have been distinguished for their persecution of God’s people. All need wisdom carefully to search out the mystery of iniquity that figures so largely in the winding up of this earth’s history. . . .”   – Testimonies to Ministers, p.117-118

“Who among God’s professing people will take up this sacred work, and labor for the souls who are perishing for lack of knowledge? The world must be warned. Many places are pointed out to me as in need of consecrated, faithful, untiring effort. Christ is opening the hearts and minds of many in our large cities. These need the Truths of God’s Word; and if we will come into a sacred nearness with Christ, and will seek to draw near to these people, impressions for good will be made. We need to wake up, and enter into sympathy with Christ and with our fellow men. The large and small cities, and places nigh and afar off, are to be worked, and worked intelligently. Never draw back. The Lord will make the right impressions upon hearts, if we will work in unison with His Spirit.

      I have words of encouragement for you, my brethren. We are to move forward in faith and hope, expecting large things from God. The enemy will seek in every way to hinder the efforts that are being made to advance the Truth (John 17:17), but in the strength of the Lord you may gain success. Let no discouraging words be spoken, but only such words as will tend to strengthen and sustain your fellow workers.  – 2 Selected Messages p.404

Who will be warned? We say again . . . Get out of the cities. Do not consider it a great deprivation, that you must go into the hills and mountains, but seek for that retirement where you can be alone with God, to learn His will and way. . . .  I urge our people to make it their lifework to seek for spirituality. Christ is at the door. This is why I say to our people, Do not consider it a privation when you are called to leave the cities and move out into the country places. Here there await rich blessings for those who will grasp them. By beholding the scenes of nature, the works of the Creator, by studying God’s handiwork, imperceptibly you will be changed into the same image !”     –Manuscript 85, 1908.  {Country Living p.14}

God’s Law & the Glad Tidings of Christ ?

Bible 4A Personal Faith in Christ Our Greatest Need

     “For the law of the Spirit of (and) Life in Christ Jesus, hath made me free from the law of sin and death . . . . For what the Law could not do, in that (because) it was weak through the flesh, God sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and in exchange for sin, condemned sin in the flesh . . . .

That the righteousness of the Law (character of God) might be filled full in us, who walk (live) not after (by) the flesh, but after (by) the Spirit !”     Romans 8:2-4

     The thought that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us, not because of any merit on our part, but as a free gift from God, is a precious thought . . . . The enemy of God and man is not willing that this Truth should be clearly presented; for he knows that if the people receive it fully, his power will be broken.

Six Days in Babylon ?

And I heard another Voice from heaven, saying . . . . Come out of her My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins (evil deeds), and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities . . . !”   Revelation 18:1-4 and ref: Jeremiah 31:31-34

O that thou hadst hearkened to My Commandments ! . . . for the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life ! . . . . then had thy peace (shalom) been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea ! . . . .

Go ye forth out of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans (astrologers – those who look to the stars for their help). With the voice of singing (joy) declare ye, and tell this . . . utter it even to the end of the world . . . .    Say ye, The LORD hath redeemed His servant Jacob !”     Isaiah 48:18-22 & John 6:63

     “Then He answered and spake unto me, saying . . . . This is the Word of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) unto Zerubbabel (those who flow, come out of Babel), saying . . . . Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts . . .     Who art thou, O great mountain (obstacle)?  before Zerubabbel, thou shalt become a plain . . . !”     Zechariah 4:6-7


God’s Law – questions are being asked ?

Bible 3     “O that thou hadst hearkened to My Commandments, for then had thy peace (shalom) been as a river, and thy righteousness (faith) been as the waves of the sea . . . !”   Isaiah 48:18

The creative energy that called the worlds into existence is in the Word of God. This Word imparts power; It begets Life. Every Command is a Promise ! . . . accepted by the will, received into the soul, It brings with it the Life of the Infinite One.It transforms the nature and re-creates the soul in the Image (likeness) of God. The Life thus imparted is in like manner sustained. “By every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God !”     – Education, p.126

He is Mighty to Save . . . !

    “Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in His apparel (the robe of His righteousness) travelling in the greatness of His strength? . . . I that speak in righteousness, am mighty to save !”

Isaiah 63:1, ref: Revelation 19:11-16 & Isaiah 61:1-3

Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner’s guilt, the more he needs the Saviour. His heart of divine love and sympathy is drawn out most of all for the one who is the most hopelessly entangled in the snares of the enemy. With His own blood He has signed the emancipation papers of the race !

     Jesus does not desire those who have been purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the enemy’s temptations. He does not desire us to be overcome and perish. He Who curbed the lions in their den, and walked with His faithful witnesses amid the fiery flames, is just as ready to work in our behalf, to subdue every evil in our nature.

Today He is standing at the altar of mercy, presenting before God the prayers of those who desire His help. He turns no weeping, contrite one away. Freely will He pardon all who come to Him for forgiveness and Restoration. He does not tell to any all that He might reveal, but He bids every trembling soul take courage. Whosoever will, may take hold of God’s strength, and make peace with Him, and He will make peace !   ref: Isaiah 27:5

     The souls that turn to Him for refuge, Jesus lifts above the accusing and the strife of tongues (ref: Romans 8:31-34). No man or evil angel can impeach these souls. Christ unites them to His Own Divine-human nature.
ref: II Peter 1:4

     These precious Words every soul that abides in Christ may make his own. You (he) may say:

          “I will look unto the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah);
           I will wait for the God (Elohim – Might One) of my Salvation (deliverance, freedom, healing & restoration) 
           My God will hear me.

           Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy;
           When I fall, I shall arise . . . . When I sit in darkness,
           The LORD shall be a Light unto me.

          He will again have compassion on us (even on me),
           He will blot out our iniquities . . . . Yea, Thou wilt cast all our sins into the depths
of
the sea!”   Micah 7:7, 8, 19,                                 Noyes’s translation.

     God has promised:

          “I will make a man more precious than fine gold; Even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.”
                                                                                                                                                Isaiah 13:12.
          “Though ye have lain among the pots (as a harlot),
           Yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver,
           And her feathers with yellow gold.”   Psalm 68:13 & ref: Jeremiah 3:1-23

     Those whom Christ has forgiven most will love Him most. These are they who in the final day will stand nearest to His throne. “They shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.”     Revelation 22:4.

–Temperance, p.124-125  &  The Ministry of Healing, page 89-90 & 182.


Come in your need to Christ Jesus -

flowers 1  Those that call upon the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) in humble, fervent prayer, will receive the strength and grace* (G5485 ) that they need to battle with temptation and to endure trials. In coming to God, the petitioner must present Christ as his authority, Christ’s merit (worthiness) as his plea; and when these conditions are fulfilled, God has pledged His Word that heaven is open unto the cries of the penitent and humble soul. 

     The enemy will come to you, and say, “It is of no use for you to pray. Did you not do that evil thing?   Have you not transgressed against God? Have you not violated your conscience?” Answer him, “Yes; but Christ has bidden me pray. He has said, ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and He is Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
