Simple Living (active) Faith ?

 rainbow 2a    “Believe that Jesus meets with you (and dwells within you . . . because He has promised); believe that He is willing to bless you. Turn the eye away from self (your own weakness). Look unto Jesus, talk of His matchless love. By beholding Him you will become changed into His likeness. When you pray, be brief, come right to the point. Do not preach the Lord a sermon in your long prayers. Ask for the Bread of Life (His Spirit-filled promises – John 6:27-50) as a hungry child asks bread of his earthly father. God will bestow upon us every needed blessing if we ask Him in simplicity and faith.”
– Counsels to the Church, p.294

     “True faith lays hold of and claims the promised Blessing before it is realized and felt. We must send up our petitions in faith within the second veil and let our faith take hold of the promised blessing and claim it as ours (Galatians 3:14). We are then to believe that we receive the blessing, because our faith has hold of it, and according to the Word it is ours. “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them !”
Mark 11:24 and Hebrews 11:1-6

     Here is faith, naked faith, to believe that we receive the blessing (the promise spoken), even before we realize it. When the promised blessing is realized and enjoyed, faith is swallowed up. But many suppose they have much faith when sharing largely of the Holy Spirit and that they cannot have faith unless they feel the power of the Spirit. Swallpaper-2995113uch confound faith with the blessing that comes through faith. The very time to exercise faith is when we feel destitute of the Spirit.

When thick clouds of darkness seem to hover over the mind, then is the time to let living (active) faith pierce the darkness and scatter the clouds. True faith rests on the promises contained in the Word of God, and those only who obey that Word can claim its glorious promises.If ye abide in Me, and My Words . . . which are Spirit and Life . . . abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you !” John 15:7 and 6:63.

     “Whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 3:22.      We should be much in secret prayer. Christ is the Vine, ye (we) are the branches. And if we would grow and flourish, we must continually draw sap and nourishment from the Living Vine (John 15:1-7); for separated from the Vine we have no strength !     

     I asked the angel why there was no more faith and power in Israel. He said, “Ye let go of the arm of the Lord too soon. Press your petitions to the throne, and hold on by strong faith (Matthew 11:12 and Luke 18:3-8). The promises are sure. Believe ye Guardian Angelreceive the things ye ask for, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24     

     I was then pointed to Elijah. He was subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly. His faith endured the trial. Seven times he prayed before the LORD, and at last the cloud was seen.      I saw that we had doubted the sure promises, and wounded the Saviour by our lack of faith. Said the angel, “Gird the armor about thee, and above all take the shield of faith; for that will guard the heart, the very life, from the fiery darts (lies – John 8:44) of the wicked.”     

     If the enemy can lead the desponding to take their eyes off from Jesus, and look to themselves, and dwell upon their own unworthiness, instead of dwelling upon the worthiness (merits, righteousness) of Jesus as our Substitute and Surety, His love, His merits, and His great mercy, he will get away their shield of faith and gain his object; they will be exposed to his fiery temptations. The weak should therefore look to Jesus, and believe in Him (the Word of Almighty God); they then exercise (step forward, and walk out in) faith . . .”
– Early Writings, p.72-73

For He verily cannot fail . . . nor will He ever put us to shame !

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

The Victory which is Ours in Christ !

bethesda“But none of the ransomed ever knew
      How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the (our) Lord passed 
     through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
     Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
Fainting and helpless, and ready to die . . .”

More than Conquerors through Christ Jesus !

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “Like the twelve apostles, the seventy disciples whom Christ sent forth later received supernatural endowments as a seal of their mission (a mark, a sign of the power and authority with which they had been vested – Luke 9:1-6) .

When their work was completed, they returned with joy, saying, “Lord (Sovereign, King), even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name !” Jesus answered, “Why are you surprised, for I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”     Luke 10:17-18  and  Revelation 12:7-10.

     Henceforth Christ’s followers are to look upon Satan as a conquered foe. Upon the cross, Jesus was to gain the victory for them; and that victory He desired them (desires us) to accept as their (our) own. “Behold,” He said, “I give unto you ___________ (your name) power* to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy . . . and nothing shall by any means hurt you !”
Luke 10:19 and 9:1-6 and Mark 16:15-20

     The omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit . . . the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life ! . . . (John 6:63 & 14:10-11) is the defense of every contrite soul. No one who in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power.

     “The LORD is nigh* (near, allied, of kin, kinsman, ready, at hand) unto them that are of a broken heart, and He saveth* (to open wide, set free, to defend, succor, to deliver, rescue, to give victory) such as be of a contrite spirit (mind) . . . !”
Psalm 34:18

     “Plead my cause, O LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), with them that strive with me . . . fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler (sword), and stand up for mine help. Draw out also Thy spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me; Say unto my soul . . . I Am thy Salvation !”
Psalm 35:1-3

     “O Lord (Adoni – Sovereign, King), open Thou my lips, and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise . . . For Thou desirest not sacrifice else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offering (Hebrews 10:4-7). For the sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: yea, a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise . . .

Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion, yea, build Thou the walls of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:19 and Revelation 21:12-17). For then shalt Thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, yea, with burnt offering and whole burnt offerings. Then shall they offer bullocks (selfishness, pride – bull-headed) upon Thine altar . . .”
Psalm 51:15-19

     “For thus saith the High and Lofty One that inhabiteth eternity . . . Whose name is holy; I dwell in the high (elevated, most) and holy (sacred, an Angel, a saint, sanctuary) place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit (mind) . . . To revive the spirit of the humble* (Matthew 11:28-30 and John 8:28), and to revive (to quicken, to recover, to restore Life in) the heart of the contrite ones !” Isaiah 57:15

It is true that Satan is a powerful being; but, thank God, we have a Mighty Saviour, Who cast out the evil one from heaven. Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?

rainbow 2a     The rainbow of promise encircling the throne on high is an everlasting testimony that “God so loved this world, that He gave up His Only-Begotten Son . . . that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting Life !” John 3:16. It testifies to the universe that God will never forsake His children in the struggle with evil. It is an assurance to us of strength and protection as long as the throne itself shall endure. –

     “And they overcame him (the dragon) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony . . . and they loved not their own lives even unto death !”
Revelation 12:10-11     

     “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession* (to profess, to speak aloud) is made unto Salvation* (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) …For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him (The Word of God) shall not be put to shame . . . !”
Romans 10:10-11

The Joy of Our Lord – the Ninty and Nine

The_Good_Shepherd_and_The_Cloudy_SkyThere were ninety and nine that safely lay
     In the shelter of the fold,

But one was out on the hills away,
Far, far from the gates of gold–
 Away on the mountains wild and bare,
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.

“Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
     Are they not enough for Thee ?”
 But the Shepherd made answer . . . “One of Mine
Has wandered away from Me,

And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep.”

But none of the ransomed ever knew
     How deep were the waters crossed,
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord passed
through . . .
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.

Far out in the desert He heard its cry–
     Fainting and helpless, and ready to die.

Lord, whence are these blood drops all the way
     That mark out the mountain’s track ?”

“They were shed for one who had gone astray,
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.”

“Lord, why are Thy hands so rent and torn ?”
“They were pierced tonight by many a thorn.”

But all through the mountains, thunder-riven,
         And up from the rocky steep,
There rose a cry to the gate of heaven,
“Rejoice, I have found My sheep!”

And the angels sang around the throne,
“Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!”

 — Hymn by Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1830 – 1869

Into all the world . . . Will you help us ?

ascensionWe ask for your help . . .?

     Our Saviour’s last Words to each of us as He ascended up to the right hand of the Majesty on high was . . . All power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Me . . . Go ye therefore into all the world, and proclaim the Glad Tidings unto every creature; and he that believeth and is baptized* (Titus 3:5-7) shall be Saved* (delivered, set free, rescued, healed and made whole) . . . !”

Matthew 28:18-19 and Mark 16:15-20

     Since that morning in 2008, I have never forgotten the Voice of our LORD, when He spoke to me from His Word, and said . . . “Go and tell what great things the LORD hath done for you !”   My family and I have taken those words to heart. And knowing that our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour Jesus Christ is soon to return in the clouds of heaven, we do all that we can to share the Glad Tidings of the victory and freedom which He has wrought for every soul who is willing to surrender and believe . . .

     The work and ministry is now growing at an unprecedented rate. Each month we are receiving hundreds of emails and phone calls from people just like you. Many are hungering and thirsting for a Word of hope and assurance. Many are searching for a way to break the chains which have held them so long in bondage to doubt, and fear, and addiction to sin . . .

And to every person the Promise (Oath, Word) of God is both sure, and steadfast . . . “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Sovereign King) shall be saved* (delivered, healed and set free) !”

But how shall they call upon Him in Whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have net heard?  and how shall they hear except there be one who proclaims?   And how shall they proclaim, except they be sent?

As it is written . . . How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of them that proclaim the Glad Tidings of Peace (Ephesians 2:13-14), that proclaimeth Salvation . . . that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth !”     Romans 10:13-15 and Isaiah 52:1-7

     Each month our family here at Isaiah Ministries is sending out, free of charge, between 400 and 650 DVDs and audio CDs, each one containing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and precious Truths from His Word. Each month we are being invited to share in person, the Glad Tidings of our Redemption and Salvation in Christ Jesus, often many miles away from home. And every call to speak is of the greatest importance, for only in eternity shall each of us know the influence and power we held in Christ, to win a soul to faith in Him !

Every month we are receiving new requests for Bible and literature from brothers and sisters in small congregations overseas, and to each of these God’s Word must be sent . . . !

     We are asking in faith for your help now . . . While there is still time you can make the greatest difference in another person’s life; a decision for eternity.

     We have now a new booklet which is ready to go to print, the title of which is called . . .”A Message of Hope !”   This is a collection of Bible promises and testimonies which point to the great sacrifice and hope we have been given in the death, burial and glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. And of the victory and freedom which He is willing and able to give to all that call upon Him in faith !

It is our prayer that with your help, we may go forward, claiming the victories of our Saviour, and winning hearts to saving faith in Him. Please contact us at our email address, or phone number below if you would like to help.

You may also use our email below to send a ministry gift through PayPal. My family and I thank you so much for your continued prayers and support. And we lift you also each day in our prayers and in faith.

May the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) both bless and keep you, strong in faith, and the unfailing power of His Life-giving Word !

your friend and brother in Christ Jesus,

The Power of Simply Believing God . . . ?

Daniel - lions 4     “We have most precious Promises in the Word of God, which ought to give us courage and confidence. They should enable us to come out of uncertainty and darkness, to come where we may know that the Spirit beareth witness with our spirit (mind) that we are the children of God. There is nothing wanting in the store-house of our God.

     Jesus has said, “Believe me, that I Am in the Father, and the Father . . . which is Spirit (John 4:24 and 3:1-2) . . . in Me; or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me (the Word of God), the works that I do, shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.”   John 14:11-12 and 7:37-39.

The disciples of Christ are to do greater works than Jesus Himself has done. He says further: “Whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” “If ye ask anything in My name, I will do it.”  John 14:13-14 & I John 3:22-24  Christ spoke these Words for the comfort of all who should have faith in Him, and it is our privilege to believe that God will do just as He has said He would !

     “I feel the most intense anguish for our youth. I warn you, as one who knows the danger, not to be entrapped by Satan through the little knowledge of science which you may have acquired. It is better to have a pure and humble heart than all the knowledge you can possibly gain without the fear of the Lord.

The youth of today will be likely to meet skeptics and infidels wherever they may go, and how necessary that they be equipped, so that they may be able to give a reason of their hope with meekness and fear. Thomas Paine has passed into his grave, but his works live to curse the world, and those who doubt the Truth of God’s Word, will place these infidel productions in the hands of the young and inexperienced, to fill their hearts with the poisonous atmosphere of doubt. The spirit of Satan works through wicked men to carry on his schemes for the ruin of souls.

     We are living in an age of licentiousness, and men and youth are bold in sin. Unless our youth are sacredly guarded, unless they are fortified with firm principles, unless greater care is manifested in choosing their associates and the literature which feeds the mind, they will be exposed to a society whose morals are as corrupt as were the morals of the inhabitants of Sodom. The appearance of the people of the world may be very attractive, but if they are continually throwing out suggestions against the Bible, they are dangerous companions; for they will ever seek to undermine the foundations of your faith, to corrupt the conscientiousness of old-fashioned, gospel religion.
– Signs of the Times, April 21, 1890

     “Satan assigns to each of his angels a part to act. He enjoins upon them all to be sly, artful, cunning. He instructs some of them to act the part of the apostles and to speak for them, while others are to act the part of infidels and wicked men who died cursing God, but now appear to be very religious. There is no difference made between the most holy apostles and the vilest infidel. They are both made to teach the same thing. It matters not whom Satan makes to speak, if his object is only accomplished. He was so intimately connected with [Thomas] Paine upon the earth, aiding him in his work, that it is an easy thing for him to know the very words Paine used and the very handwriting of one who served him so faithfully and accomplished his purposes so well. Satan dictated much of his writings, and it is an easy thing for him to dictate sentiments through his angels now and make it appear that they come through Thomas Paine, who, while living, was a devoted servant of the evil one. This is the masterpiece of Satan. All this teaching, purporting to be from apostles and saints and wicked men who have died, comes directly from his satanic majesty. 

     The fact that Satan claims that one whom he loved so well, and who hated God so perfectly, is now with the holy apostles and angels in glory, should be enough to remove the veil from all minds and discover to them the dark, mysterious works of Satan. He virtually says to the world and to infidels, No matter how wicked you are, no matter whether you believe or disbelieve in God or the Bible, live as you please, heaven is your home; for all know that if Thomas Paine is in heaven, and so exalted, they will surely get there. This error is so glaring that all may see if they will. Satan is now doing through persons like Thomas Paine what he has been trying to do since his fall. He is, through his power and lying wonders, tearing away the foundation of the Christian’s hope and putting out the sun that is to light them in the narrow way to heaven. He is making the world believe that the Bible is uninspired, no better than a storybook, while he holds out something to take its place; namely, spiritual manifestations!”
– Early Writings, p.91

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 . . . !
