Gospel Ministries International –

“When Jesus ascended to heaven, He committed His work on earth to those who had received the Light of the gospel (the Glad Tidings).They were to carry the work forward to completion.

He has provided no other agency for the promulgation* of His Truth (the unfailing Verity of His every Word)! “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” “And, lo, I Am with you alway, even unto the end of the world !” Matthew 28:18-20 & Mark 16:15-20

This solemn commission reaches us in this age. God leaves with His church the responsibility of receiving or rejecting it. Many seem to rest perfectly easy, as if heavenly messengers were to come to this earth, to proclaim with an audible voice the message of warning; but while angels have their work to do, we are to do ours in opening the Bible Truth to those who are in darkness.

Is your interest selfishly shut up in your own family, to your church? God pity your narrowness! You should have that undying zeal, that far-reaching love, which encircles the world. Those who are not called to go to foreign countries have a work to do in their own borders, to keep up the interest in their churches by well-directed effort, that they may be spiritual and self-sacrificing, and by their means and earnest prayers may aid those who enter new and difficult fields.

Ministers should not do work that belongs to the laymen, thus wearying themselves, and preventing others from doing their duty. They should teach the members how to work in the church and community, to build up the church (in righteousness as well as members), to make the prayer-meeting interesting, and to train for missionaries youth of ability. The members of the church should co-operate actively with the ministers, making the section of country around them their field of missionary labor . . . !”                         – Review & Herald, October 12, 1886

You are Complete in Him! – part.2

Jesus tomb1     “According as He hath chosen us in Him, before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love . . . wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved !”     Ephesians 1:4-6

“For God so loved this world, that He gave His Only-Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life.” John 3:16. This message is for the world, for “whosoever” means that any and all who comply with the condition may share the Blessing (ref: Galatians 3:14).

All who look unto Jesus, believing in Him as their personal Saviour, shall “not perish, but have everlasting Life.” Every provision has been made that we may have the everlasting reward. Christ is our sacrifice, our Substitute, our Surety, our Divine intercessor; He is made unto us Righteousness, Sanctification, and Redemption. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures (shadows) of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the Presence of God for us.” Hebrews 9:24 Continue reading

The Righteousness of God – how It is obtained ?

Abraham's prayer     “Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted unto him for (as) righteousness . . . Know ye therefore, that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham !”   “And if children, then heirs . . . heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ . . . !”   Galatians 3:6-7 & Romans 8:17

Righteousness is the “state of him who is as he ought to be,… integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness,
correctness of thinking, feeling, and acting” (Thayer’s Greek Lexicon). This is a high standard to live up to. Paul calls it something we hope for. He wrote, “For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith” (Galatians 5:5).

We can hope to have righteousness, but it only comes by faith.

Righteousness is the state of being pure; of thinking, feeling and acting correctly. Jesus put it this way, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). This is a seemingly unreachable goal. How can you be as perfect as our Father in heaven? The Bible tells us, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags…” (Isaiah 64:6). There must be something more to this picture . . . ?

Justified (righteousness) by Faith ?

Alps 24     “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from Faith to faith: as it is written . . . the Just shall live by faith !” Romans 1:17

Faith is the depending upon the Word of God only, and expecting that Word only to do what the Word says. Justification by faith, then, is justification by depending upon the Word of God only and expecting that Word only to accomplish it.

“Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ, unto all and upon all them that believe . . . !”   Romans 3:22

Our Words of Faith – the Substance of things hoped for !

 Bible girl reading    You should refuse to listen to the suggestions of Satan, that he may not paralyze your efforts to do good. What we need is Bible religion; for if Christ is abiding in us, and we in Him, we shall be continually advancing in the Divine life . . . !

     “And this is the Victory which overcometh the world (decoration), even our faith ! . . . Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious Promises; that by these we might be partakers of the Divine nature !”     I John 5:4 & II Peter 1:4

     “For faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Deity) . . . . and the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life . . . !”     Romans 10:17 & John 6:63

Satan will try to sever the connection which faith makes between our souls and God. He will seek to discourage us by telling us that we are unworthy of the grace* of God, and need not expect to receive this or that favor because we are sinners. These suggestions (whispered in the mind) should not cut off our confidence; for it is written: “Jesus Christ came into the world to Save sinners, of whom I am chief.” Continue reading

Spiritual Growth in Economic Crisis ?

And Jesus said, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you mete (give) withal, it shall be measured to you again . . . For when GOD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) made promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He sware by Himself, saying, Surely Blessing, I will bless thee, and in multiplying, I will multiply thee . . . !”     Luke 6:38 & Hebrews 6:13-14

Now is the time to press together; to do as the disciples of old just after Calvary, while they sought the LORD for the outpouring of His Promised Gift on that day of Pentecost. Now we must give our selves to His work, willing both to spend and to be spent for the Salvation of the souls yet wandering in darkness. We must encourage your brothers and sisters in the Lord’s vineyard, both with our words and with our means, to see this great work finished before our Lord’s return in the clouds of glory !
