Preparing for the Loud Cry !

     “And after these things, I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power . . . . and the earth was lightened with his glory . . . !”   Revelation 18:1-4

     “Let every one who claims to believe that the Lord is soon coming, search the Scriptures as never before; for Satan is determined to try every device possible to keep souls in darkness, and blind the mind to the perils of the times in which we are living . . . and the Light of the righteousness of Christ . . . !

      Let every believer take up his Bible with earnest prayer, that he may be enlightened by the Holy Spirit as to what is Truth, that he may know more of God and of Jesus Christ Whom He has sent. Search for the Truth as for hidden treasures, and disappoint the enemy.

Sanctify them through Thy Truth . . . Thy Word is Truth (Verity, of a surety) !”   John 17:17

     The time of test is just upon us, for the loud cry of the third angel has already begun in the revelation (revealing) of the righteousness of Christ, the sin-pardoning Redeemer. This is the beginning of the Light of the angel whose glory shall fill the whole earth. For it is the work of every one to whom the message of warning has come, to lift up Jesus, to present Him to the world as revealed in types, as shadowed in symbols, as manifested in the revelations of the prophets, as unveiled in the lessons given to His disciples and in the wonderful miracles wrought for the sons of men. Search the Scriptures; for they are they that testify of Him.

If you would stand through the time of trouble, you must know Christ, and appropriate (by faith as your very own) the gift of His righteousness, which He imputes to the repentant sinner !”       ref: Revelation 14:6-13, Jeremiah 23:5-6 & Hebrews 4:1-10

The garments of Christ’s Righteousness ?

“You cannot indulge in sin and still be a witness for the Lord, for in works you deny Him. Where is the holy boldness that should characterize your faith and
prayers
because you are not under condemnation before man or God? Where is your ringing testimony on the side of Truth (The Verity of God‘s Word)?

. . . .  Just as soon as you commit sin, you should flee right to the throne of grace (within the veil), and tell Jesus all about it. You should be filled with sorrow for sin, because through sin (faithless transgression of God’s law) you have weakened your own spirituality, grieved the heavenly angels, and wounded and bruised the loving heart of your Redeemer. When you have asked Jesus, in contrition of soul, for His forgiveness, believe that He has forgiven you. Do not doubt His divine mercy,
or refuse the comfort of His infinite love. Continue reading
