Who Shall Stand When He Appeareth ?

hourglassDear brothers and sisters,

     It is our prayer, that today, as many call to remembrance the first Advent of our Lord and Saviour to this world, that we may also take time to seriously consider His 2nd Advent, and His soon coming again in the clouds of heaven to receive His own !

     “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way (My path) before Me . . . And the Lord (Adoni – the Sovereign King), Whom ye seek, shall suddenly (unexpectedly) come to His temple (I Corinthians 3:16-17) . . . . Even the Messenger of the Covenant, Whom ye delight in: Behold, He shall come, saith the LORD of hosts . . . ref: Psalm 72:6 & Hosea 6:3

But who may abide the day of His coming? and who shall stand when He appeareth?”     Malachi 3:1-2 & 4:1-6

     “Who shall ascend into the hill (mountain – Isaiah 2:3) of the LORD? and who shall stand in His holy place? . . . . he that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity (pride, self-confidence), nor sworn deceitfully . . . He shall receive the Blessing (Galatians 3:14) from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his Salvation . . .

For this is the generation (the children) of them that seek Him, that seek Thy Face, O Jacob. Selah !”   Psalm 24:3-6 & II Corinthians 4:3-6


    The character and tendency of modern revivals has awakened no little anxiety in thoughtful minds among all denominations. Many of the revivals which have occurred during the last forty years have given no evidence of the work of the Spirit of God. The light which flames up for a time, soon dies out, leaving the darkness more dense than before.

Popular revivals are too often carried by . . . .

The Windows of Heaven Opened ?

      “To whom He said, This is the Rest wherewith ye shall cause the weary to rest; and this is the Refreshing; yet they would not hear . . . !” Isaiah 28:12-13 & ref: Hebrews 3:18-19 & 4:1-12 & Exodus 31:12-17

What think ye of Christ ?” What is He to you personally? Is your faith centered in Him as your Redeemer? Do you believe that He saves you from sin, and that He imputes to you His righteousness? . . . . The believing man, even tho he be unlearned, has a knowledge that can not be wrested from him. The one who trusts his Saviour implicitly finds the gate of heaven ajar (opened), and flooded with glory from the throne of God . . . !

Christ or the Law ?

mountain church     “But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead (in Adam) wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of Spirit, and not in oldness of letter . . . !”
Romans 7:6 and 2:13

     “For the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law (written and engraven in stones) could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, GOD sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh . . .

     That the righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled* (filled to it’s fullest) in us, who walk not after (by the power of) the flesh, but after the Spirit !”     Romans 8:1-4 Continue reading
