Living Stones of Fire !

     “For ye also, as living stones . . . are built up as a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices (praise and thanksgiving), acceptable unto God . . . . That ye should shew forth the praises of Him Who hath called you out of the darkness, and into His marvellous Light !”   I Peter 2:5-9
ref: Psalm 51:14-19 and Psalm 107:20-22

     “And they that be of thee shall build the old waste places . . . yea, thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generaqtions. And thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in . . .

     Then shall thou delight thyself in the LORD . . . and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and I will feed thee with the heritage (inheritance) of Jacob thy father . . . for the mouth of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath spoken it . . . . and His Word shall not return unto Him void !”
Isaiah 58:12-14 and 55:8-11

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 demon of selfishness – part.2

calvaryThe Law of Life !

  “Love, the basis of Creation and of Redemption, is the basis of true education. This is made plain in the law that God has given as the guide of life. The first and great commandment is, “Thou shalt love the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.” Mark 12:30, 31. To love Him, the Infinite, the Omniscient One, with the whole strength and mind and heart, means the highest development of every power. It means that in the whole being –the body, the mind, as well as the soul —the image of God is to be restored !

If any man will come after (follow) Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me . . . !”   Luke 9:23 and I Corinthians 15:31

The Law of God – Fulfilled or destroyed ?

Bible_101     The question which is now being asked by many of God’s children is . . . . If Christ came to “fulfill” the law, then what part did He destroy ?

     This is a vital Truth for each of God’s children to know. The LORD did not come to change His Law (instructions in righteousness) . . . “For He shall magnify the Law and make it honourable” (Isaiah 42:21) . . . . but rather He has given us the promise that He will change our carnal hearts of stone !

Verily, verily, I say unto you . . . Ye must be begotten again !”
John 3:1-7, James 1:18 & I Peter 1:22-25

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 . . . .

Sin and the Curse of the Law ?

Salvation_400     “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse (accursed – without hope of pardon or redemption) for us . . . . For it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree . . . !” 
Galatians 3:13 & ref: Deuteronomy 21:23

      “Who His Own Self bare our sins (faithless transgression of God’s Law) in His Own body on the tree . . . . so that we being now dead to sins, should live unto righteousness . . . and by Whose stripes ye were healed !”   I Peter 2:24, Romans 6:1-6 & Isaiah 53:4-6

ref: I John 3:4-8 & Romans 14:23

What was Abolished in Christ ?

nailed to the cross 4     “And took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross . . . !”
Colossians 2:14

“The words ‘abolish,’ ‘take away,’ ‘destroy,’ and ‘change’ have been so persistently connected with the law by some public teachers that there exists in the minds of many people the honest conviction that all which is expressed by these words was done to the law by Christ.

It is true that He came to “abolish” something, and to “take away” something, and to “destroy” something, and to “change” something; but it is important that we-should know just what it was that He abolished, and what it was that He took away, and what it was that He destroyed, and what it was that He intended to change by His work in behalf of man. This we can easily learn from the Scriptures. Continue reading

Christ – the End of the Law ?

righteousness 3     “The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is well pleased for His Righteousness’ sake; for He will magnify the law, and make it honourable . . . !”   Isaiah 42:21

And this is the name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS !”   Jeremiah 23:5-6

“And lo a Voice from heaven, saying . . . This is My beloved Son, in Whom I Am well pleased !”   Matthew 3:16-17 Continue reading

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
