A Temple for Our God ?

court-yard-2   “What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God . . . and ye are not your own?

     Therefore, glorify God in your body, and in your spirit (mind), which are God’s . . . for you have been purchased from slavery to sin, at an infinite price . . . !” I Corinthians 6:15-20 and ref: I Peter 1:18-19*

     “When Moses was about to build the sanctuary as a dwelling place for God, he was directed to make all things according to the Pattern shown him in the mount . . . .

But Israel had chosen their own ways. They had not builded according to the Pattern; but Christ, the True temple for God’s indwelling, molded every detail of His earthly life in harmony with God’s ideal. He said, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:8.

     So our characters are to be builded “for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:22. And we are to “make all things according to the Pattern,” even Him Who “suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.” Hebrews 8:5 & 1 Peter 2:21.     – Desire of Ages, p.209 Continue reading

Ministry and Miracles of the LORD our Righteousness !

Jesus-heals-lame     “Christ has all power in heaven and in earth (Matthew 28:18-19). He is the Great Physician, upon Whom we are to call when suffering from physical or spiritual disease. Over the winds and the waves and over men possessed with demons, He showed that He possessed absolute control. To Him have been given the keys of death and of hell. Principalities and powers were made subject to Him, even while in His humiliation (as a man) . . .

O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself . . . but in Me is thine help. I will be thy King . . .
I will ransom them (you) from the power of the grave; I will redeem them (you) from death. O death, I will be thy plagues . . . O grave, I will be thy destruction
!”
Hosea 13:9-14

We are too faithless. Oh, how I wish that I could lead our people to have faith in God!   They need not feel that in order to exercise faith they must be wrought up into a high state of excitement. All they have to do is to believe God’s Word, just as they believe one another’s word. He hath said it, and He will perform His Word. Calmly rely on His Promise, because He means all that He says. Say, He has spoken to me in His Word, and He will fulfill every Promise that He has made. Do not become restless. Be trustful. God’s Word is true. Act (live) as if your heavenly Father could be trusted . . . !”

He is able to do Exceeding Abundantly above all that you can ask or think !

flowers-2     “Satan seeks to draw our minds away from the mighty Helper, to lead us to ponder over our degeneration of soul. But though Jesus sees the guilt of the past (last year, last month, last week, and even yesterday), He speaks pardon; and we should not dishonor Him by doubting His love. The feeling of guiltiness must be laid at the foot of the cross, or it will poison the springs of Life . . .

My son and daughter, attend to My Words . . . incline thine ear unto My sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; yea, keep them in the midst of thine heart . . . . For they are Life (John 6:63) unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh . . . !

     Yea, keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it (thine heart) are the issues (springs) of Life !”   Proverbs 4:20-23 Continue reading
