The Righteousness Of Faith !

     “For the Promise, that He should be the heir of the world . . . was not to Abraham, or to his Seed* through the law, but through the righteousness of faith !”
Romans 4:13-21 and ref: Galatians 3:16 and 3:27-29

     “Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of Justification* by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered . . . It is the third angel’s message in verity !

The prophet declares, “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” Brightness, glory, and power are to be connected with the third angel’s message (Revelation 14), and conviction will follow wherever it is preached in demonstration of the Spirit.

     How will any of our brethren know when this Light shall come to the people of God? As yet, we certainly have not seen the Light that answers to this description. God has Light for His people, and all who will accept it will see the sinfulness of remaining in a lukewarm condition . . . !”
– Review & Herald, April 1, 1890

     “What is Justification* (to declare, to render innocent, holy and righteous) by faith? It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust, and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself.

Remember the Sabbath to Keep it Holy –

7th day 2The Sabbath: How Do We Know Which Day It Is ?

article originally published in Signs of the Times,
September 22, 2015
written by: Ed Dickerson

I took a tour of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, USA, a while back, and my guide said that “the Declaration of Independence was signed in this room on July 4, 1776.” But he went on to explain that only one part of that statement was true. I love history, so standing merely a metre from where Thomas Jefferson had been seated in Independence Hall filled me with awe, and I thought perhaps I had misunderstood the man’s words. “It was not signed that day,” the guide said. “There was a war going on; they had more important things to deal with.”

On July 2 (and not the fourth), Congress unanimously approved the Declaration of Independence. But the vote was for a much altered document, with multiple passages crossed out, some words added and numerous corrections. It was definitely not suitable for framing or public display. The final draft was presented to Congress on July 4, which they then ratified as correct. On July 19, Congress ordered final “engrossed” copy, that is, one written in a large, clear hand. That’s the one on display at the National Archives, but this final copy wasn’t actually signed until August 2. 

Discovering that the signing of the Declaration of Independence didn’t take place on July 4, 1776, got me thinking about dates, days and, being a pastor, the Sabbath.

The Belly of the Beast . . . !

     “God has His workmen in every age. The call of the hour is answered by the coming of the man. Thus when the Divine Voice cries, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” the response will come, “Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8.

Let all who labor effectually in the canvassing field feel in their hearts that they are doing the work of the Lord in ministering to souls who know not the Truth for this time. They are sounding the note of warning in the highways and byways to prepare a people for the great day of the Lord, which is so soon to break upon the world.

We have no time to lose. We must encourage this work. Who will go forth now with our publications? The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) imparts a fitness for the work to every man and woman who will co-operate with divine power. All the requisite talent, courage, perseverance, faith, and tact will come as they put the armor on. A great work is to be done in our world, and human agencies will surely respond to the demand. The world must hear the warning. When the call comes, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” send back the answer clear and distinct, “Here am I; send me.”

What is the Mark of the Beast ?


And this gospel (Glad Tidings) of the Kingdom (Sovereign Reign) shall be proclaimed in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come . .

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet (Daniel 11:28-45 & 12:1-13), stand in the holy place . . . who so readeth let him understand. Then let them which be in Judaea flee to the mountains . . . !”
Matthew 24:14-21 & Luke 21:8-28

     “God has revealed what is to take place in the last days, that His people may be prepared to stand against the tempest of opposition and wrath . . . . Those who have been warned of the events before them are not to sit in calm expectation of the coming storm, comforting themselves that the Lord will shelter His faithful ones in the day of trouble. We are to be as men waiting for their Lord, not in idle expectancy, but in earnest work, with unwavering faith.
It is no time now to allow our minds to be engrossed with things of minor importance. While men are sleeping, Satan is actively arranging matters so that the Lord’s people may not have mercy or justice.

The Sunday movement is now making its way in darkness. The leaders are concealing the true issue, and many who unite in the movement do not themselves see whither the undercurrent is tending. Its professions are mild and apparently Christian, but when it shall speak it will reveal the spirit of the dragon. It is our duty to do all in our power to avert the threatened danger. We should endeavor to disarm prejudice by placing ourselves in a proper light before the people. We should bring before them the real question at issue, thus interposing the most effectual protest against measures to restrict liberty of conscience. We should search the Scriptures and be able to give the reason for our faith. Says the prophet: “The wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.”  – 5 Testimonies, p.452

The Paths of Righteousness . . . ?

     “He leadeth me beside the still waters . . . He restoreth my soul, He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake . . .”     Psalm 23:2-3

Blessed are the undefiled in the Way, who walk in the Law of the LORD . . . . Yea, blessed (ref: Galatians 3:14) are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart. For they also do no iniquity, who walk in His Ways . . . !”   Psalm 119:1-3

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.

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

When they say peace . . . ?

Pope Francis meets former Israeli President Shimon Peres
Pope Francis welcomes former Israeli President Shimon Peres during their meeting at the Vatican
(CNS) –

Former Israeli President Shimon Peres has said that Pope Francis is more powerful than the United Nation when it comes to advocating peace . . .

While visiting the Vatican earlier today, Mr Peres asked Pope Francis to head a parallel United Nations called the “United Religions” to counter religious extremism in the world today.

Peres said the United Nations and its peacekeepers “do not have the force or the effectiveness of any one of the Pope’s homilies, which can draw half a million people just in St Peter’s Square alone.”

“So given that the United Nations has run its course, what we need is an organisation of United Religions,” Mr Peres said, as “the best way to counteract these terrorists who kill in the name of their faith.”

For when they shall say, Peace and Safety (security); then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as does travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye brethren, are not of darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For ye are all children of the Light . . . Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober . . . !”     I Thessalonians 5:1-6

Jesus-heals-lameDELIVERANCE ?

Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”     Galatians 5:16.

     What a blessed promise! And as sure as it is blessed, it’s blessing is to everyone who believes.

Think of the lust (carnal desire) of the flesh. How all-pervading it is! How stern are its dictates! How oppressive its rule! How dismal is the slavery that it lays upon man! Everybody has experienced it — longing to do the good that he would, yet doing only the evil that he hated; having ever a will to do better, but how to perform it, finding not . . . .
     Delighting in the law of God after the inward man, yet finding in his members (the flesh) another law, warring against the law of his mind and bringing him into captivity to the law of sin which is in his members; and at last, crying out, “O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”
Romans 7:14-24. Continue reading

The Last War and coming of anti-christ ?

     “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles . . . . which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of the great day of God Almighty ! . . . And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon (har Megiddo – mount of the troups, crowd, pressing together) . . . !

Behold, I come as a thief.     Blessed is he/she that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked (ref: Revelation 3:14-18), and they see his shame . . .”   Revelation 18:12-16

     “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape . . . . But ye brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For ye are all the  children of Light, and the children of the day. We are not of the night, nor in darkness . . .

Therefore let us not sleep (ref: Matthew 25:1-13), as do others; but let us watch and be sober !”   I Thessalonians 5:1-11

     Gather your families together around you . . . . We all must Seek the LORD’s Face with all of our hearts, Now, while there is still time . . . !       For the Lord Jesus Christ has promised us, that just before all these things come to pass,I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh . . . . And I will cause to come down for you the Rain, the Early and the Latter Rain in the 1st month (ref: Exodus 12:1-2) !

     And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine (fresh pressed grapes) and oil. And I will restore unto you the years that the locust hath eaten . . . . And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) shall be delivered . . . !”   Joel 2:23-32

Now is the time, Today, is the day of Salvation (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing & restoration) . . . . if ye will hear His Voice!

May the LORD Bless and strengthen each of us, as we prepare our hearts for that great day of His return in the clouds of heaven !
