For verily I say unto you _______ (your name), What things soever ye desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and ye shall have them . . . !”

     “Nevertheless . . . when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth ?”

Welcome: 
      We invite you to join us at this year’s 2017 International Adventist Prayer Conference.   This year’s theme is “O Zion, Prepare ye the Way of Our LORD ! (Isaiah 40:3);  and will focus on our Saviour’s great promise, that “He came to heal the broken hearted, and to set the captives free.”
      Speakers from around the world will share their experience of the dangers of spiritualism, mysticism and the occult; and of the unfailing power of our Mighty God to rescue, deliver and to save !

     This year’s Prayer Conference will be our 3rd International Event. And will be held at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center, Mt. Hermon, California, USA.  Previous Conferences in 2012 at Wonju, Korea and again in 2013 at Saitama, Japan, have been powerful and inspiring, with attendance growing each year.

We praise our LORD  and Saviour to see such interest and participation, as men and women of God “watch, pray and work” together (5T, p.235) to prepare our hearts and those of our families to be ready to meet our Lord.

Our Victory in Christ Jesus Guaranteed !

     “Therefore . . . being now justified* be faith, we have Peace with God (John 14:27) through our Lord Jesus Christ !”   Romans 4:20-25 and 5:1

“What is justification* (innocence, holiness, righteousness) by faith?   It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust (I Corinthians 1:29-31), and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself. When men see their own nothingness, then they are prepared to be clothed with the righteousness of Christ !”

The Assurance of Our Salvation !

Can we really have assurance of our Salvation ?

     The Word of God gives each of us this unfailing promise . . . . “Behold, a King shall reign in righteousness . . . . Until the Spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted as a forest.     And the work of Righteousness shall be Peace; and the effect of righteousness shall be quietness and assurance for ever . . . !”     Isaiah 32:1, 15-17 and ref: 51:1-3 and Ephesians 2:13-14

     “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) . . . that I will raise unto David a righteous BRANCH, and a King (Matthew 28:18-19) shall reign and He shall prosper . . . And in His days Judah shall be saved * (delivered, rescued, set free, healed and made whole), and Israel shall dwell safely.  And this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS !”
Jeremiah 23:5-6

The Kingdom and Dominion !


     “And Thou, O Tower of the flock, the Stronghold of the daughter of Zion . . . unto Thee shall it come, even the first dominion . . . yea, the Kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem !”   Micah 4:8

     “Study the Scriptures. Know that the only thing in which you can safely glory is that which will open to you the gates of the city of God (the righteousness of Christ – I Corinthians 1:29-31) . . . . Learn from the Word of God how to form characters fitted for the country you are seeking. Know that Christ is to be set forth among you (in your midst) . . . and that all that was lost in Adam the cross of Christ fully restores to every believing soul.

Showers of Blessing . . . why do we expect so little ?

     “Therefore . . . being by the right hand of God exalted (Ephesians 1:18-21), and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit . . . . He hath shed forth (gushed out as a fountain, poured forth) this, which ye now see and hear . . .

     Then said Peter unto them . . . Repent, and be baptized* (Acts 19:1-8) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins . . . and ye shall receive the gift* (something given freely out of great love for the receiver) of the Holy Spirit . . .      For the Promise is unto you, and to your children . . . and to all that are afar off (yet in the outer court – Ephesians 2:13-14), even as many as the LORD our God shall call . . . !”     Acts 2:33-39

ref: article on the Baptism of Christ

Quote –      “The church is not now the separate and peculiar people she was when the fires of persecution were kindled against her. How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!     I saw that if the church had always retained her peculiar, holy character, the power of the Holy Spirit which was imparted to the disciples would still be with her. The sick would be healed, devils would be rebuked and cast out, and she would be mighty and a terror to her enemies.”   – Early Writings, p.227

note:   the character and righteousness (innocence, holiness and perfection)  of Christ Jesus is freely ours, if we will through surrender and living (active) faith appropriate it as our very own ! Continue reading

Clean Hands and a Pure Heart – The Sanctuary Cleansed !

     “Know ye not that ye _______ (your name) are the Temple of God ?

I Corinthians 3:16 and 6:19-20

The Price of Our Freedom ?

woman-forgiven-2     “In all this conflict with the powers of evil, there was ever before Christ the darkened shadow (Matthew 27:46) into which He Himself must enter . . . Ever before Him was the price which He must pay for the ransom of these souls.   As He witnessed the sufferings of the human race, He knew that He must bear a greater pain, mingled with mockery; that He must suffer the greatest humiliation . . .     

     “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?   Why art Thou so far from helping Me, and from the words of My roaring (moaning)? . . . I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of My bowels.      My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and My tongue cleaveth to My jaws; and Thou hast brought Me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed Me about: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed Me . . . yea, they pierced My hands and My feet. I may tell (count) all My bones . . .

     They look and stare upon Me. They part My garments among them, and cast lots upon My vesture . . . All they that see Me laugh Me to scorn: they shoot out their lip, they shake their head, saying . . . He trusted on the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) that He would deliver Him: let Him deliver, seeing He delighted in Him . . .      But be not Thou far from Me, O LORD, O My Strength (John 14:10-11), haste Thee to help Me . . .”   Psalm 22:1-19     

14604589360ac88b4d     “He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth . . . He is brought as a Lamb to the slaughter; for the transgression* (rebellion, apostasy) of My people was He stricken. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise* (to crush, to crumble, to break in pieces) Him; He hath put Him to grief* (rubbed, worn, make sick, grieved, put to pain, made to be sorry) . . .     

     When Thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin . . . for though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered (Hebrews 5:8) . . . He shall see His seed (offspring), and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. Yea, He shall see the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied . . . for He shall bear their (our) iniquities !”   Isaiah 53:7-11

     When He raised Lazarus from the dead, He knew that for that life alone He must pay the ransom on the cross of Calvary.   Every rescue made was to cause Him the deepest humiliation. He was to taste death for every man. . . !”

– Youth’s Instructor, December 29, 1898

     “For in that He died, He died unto sin once (Daniel 9:24), but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God . . . That He might be the Firstborn (First Begotten) among many brethren . . . !”     Romans 6:10-11 & 8:29

     “Man is poisoned by sin; but a Remedy has been provided for the fallen race in the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the whole world!   Every hope that we have of Salvation (rescue, deliverance, freedom, healing and restoration) outside of Christ is a vain hope.

     We cannot dishonor our Saviour more than by doubting that He will save us. Whatever may have been our life of transgression (rebellion and apostasy), however deep may be the stain of our sin, there is One Who is able* (full of power) to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by Him.” ref: Hebrews 7:25

It is Finished (paid in full) !– Signs of the Times, March 10, 1890

     “Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner’s guilt, the more he needs the Saviour. His heart of divine love and sympathy is drawn out most of all for the one who is the most hopelessly entangled in the snares of the enemy. With His own blood He (Christ) has signed the emancipation papers of the race.” – Ministry of Healing, p.89-90

     “Jesus is the remedy for sin. We may have intellect, but human intelligence can devise no way of Salvation (no way of cleansing or freedom); we may have earthly possessions, but that will not provide a ransom for the sin of our soul.   Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing, and restoration) is the gift of God through Christ, and the Promise is, “Whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have eternal Life (is no longer under the dominion of sin and death, but has the liberty of the sons and daughters begotten of God) !”      For God hath sworn, and He cannot lie . . . !

     It is not enough to have a nominal faith. We must have faith that will appropriate the Life-giving power to our souls. We suffer great loss because we do not exercise simple, living faith in Christ. We should be able to say, “He is my Saviour (personally); He died for me; I look to Him as my complete Saviour and I live !”

– Signs of the Times, March 10, 1890
     “For God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent (change His mind). For hath He said, and shall He not do it? . . . or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good ?”     Numbers 23:19

     “And faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . as it is written, The just* (justified, made innocent, holy, perfect and righteous) shall live by faith !” Romans 1:17, Habakkuk 2:4, Galatians 3:11 & Hebrews 10:38     

     “God does not ask you to feel that Jesus is your Saviour, but to believe that He died for you (as your Substitute and Surety), and that His blood now (Today) cleanseth you from all sin. You have been bitten by the serpent, and as the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness that the dying might look and live, so Christ was lifted up, that whosoever believeth in Him (the spoken Word of God – Isaiah 52:1-3) should not perish, but have eternal Life !     

Moses serpent 3     Saving faith is simplicity itself. You must cry no more; you must cease to hang down your head as a bulrush. Look to the uplifted Saviour (John 3:14-15 and Isaiah 45:22-25), and, however grievous may have been your sins, believe that He saves you. All the remedies and medicines of the world would have failed to cure one soul who had been bitten by the venomous serpent; but God had provided a remedy that could not fail. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”      Be not among the number to whom the Saviour said, “Ye will not come unto me that ye might have Life.” Oh, how He longed to save them; for while we were yet sinners (not waiting for us to make ourselves good), Christ died unto sin for us !
     Take the Word of Jesus (John 14:10-11 and 6:63) as more sure and valuable than any word that can come from the human agent. Thank God with your whole heart and soul and voice that you are barricaded with the rich promises of His infallible Word, so that the wicked one shall not touch you. God will give you the Holy Spirit, even though it may seem to you that it is too good to be true. “What shall we then say to these things?   If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not His Own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give* us all things?” Romans 8:31-32

– The Bible Echo, July 2, 1894
     “Who shall lay any thing to the charges of God’s elect?   For it is God that justifieth*. . . who is he that condemneth?   It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, Who is even at the right hand of God, and Who also maketh intercession for us !”   Romans 8:33-34

     “So likewise reckon (count) ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Sovereign King) !”   Romans 6:11

     And “being therefore justified* by faith (present tense – declared, rendered just, innocent, holy and righteous) . . . Today, if ye will only hear My Voice . . . we now have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ !”  Romans 5:1 ref: John 14:27-28 and Ephesians 2:13-14

     “For God commendeth (demonstrated) His great love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us . . . Much more then, being now justified* by His blood (Life – Leviticus 17:10-11 & Hebrews 10:10-17), we shall be saved from wrath through Him . . . !”   Romans 5:1-9

empty-tomb (2)     “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if One died for all, then were all dead. And in that He died for all, that they which [now] live [by faith] should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again !”   II Corinthians 5:14-15

     “That the Life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh !”
II Corinthians 4:10-11

     “We are to take God at His Word. The experience that comes through living (active) faith is the experience that God wants every one of us to have. We should reach out the hand of faith, and grasp the Arm of Infinite power . . . The simplest prayer that is put up in faith is acceptable to heaven. “For (but) without faith it is impossible to please Him . . . for he that cometh to God must believe that He Is (I Am), and that He is (I Am) a Rewarder of all those that seek Him . . .”   Hebrews 11:6 ref: Deuteronomy 4:29-33

     The humblest soul that looks up to Christ in faith is connected with the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of the universe . . .“Who upholds all things by the Word of His power !” We may walk (live) in the Light (the glory, the victory, the assurance streaming from the throne of Almighty God) as Christ is in the Light . . . !”   I John 1:7 and Psalm 44:3 and 89:15

Our Freedom and Victory in Christ Jesus – Guaranteed !

     “O Israel, . . . thou hast destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine help. I will be thy King, for where is any other that may save thee in all of thy cities . . . ?” Hosea 13:9-14

     “Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel . . . be glad and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.  For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath taken away thy judgments* (Galatians 3:13, Deuteronomy 28:15-47), He hath cast out thine enemy . . . . Yea, the King of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst (heart) of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more . . .

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem . . . My city and My people which are called by My name (Daniel 9:19) . . . Fear thou not ___________ (your name), and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.   For the LORD thy God (Elohim) in the midst of thee is Mighty* (full of power, a Warrior, valiant and strong); He will SAVE !

He will rejoice over thee __________ (your name) with joy; He will rest (engrave) in His love, He will joy over thee with singing . . . !” Zephaniah 3:14-17, I Peter 2:5-9 and Ephesians 2:10 Continue reading

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 !
