The Roots of that Tree ?

     “For I fear, lest by any means . . . as the serpent (Satan, the devil – Revelation 12:9-12) beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity* (G572, 573 – singleness, clarity) that is in Christ . . .  and no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light !”
II Corinthians 11:3-4 and 11:13-15

Eleventh Hour Workers – an intern’s adventure at Little Light Studios

     “At the eleventh hour the Lord will call into his service many faithful workers. Self-sacrificing men and women will step into the places made vacant by apostasy and death. To young men and young women, as well as to those who are older, God will give power from above.
With converted minds, converted hands, converted feet, and converted tongues, their lips touched with a living coal from the divine altar, they will go forth into the Master’s service, moving steadily onward and upward, carrying the work forward to completion . . . !”                           – Youth Instructor, February 13, 1902

The LORD is not looking for talent . . . What He greatly desires is workers, sons and daughters of God, who are willing to surrender and consecrate their all . . . for His service !

    We ask for your help now, to reach millions across this world with the Light of Truth while there is yet still time, and freedom to do so. Please contact us to find out how you can help, and make a difference in the lives of so many.

Thank you !

Questions on Music ?

hymns 2Comparing Hymns and Contemporary Worship Songs

As most of you know, I believe wholeheartedly that a healthy church chooses congregational songs with theologically rich text and well-crafted, singable music. This is part one of a three part discussion on some of the differences between hymnody and contemporary worship songs.

The Problem

     Protestant denominations have been singing people since the days of the Reformation. Their hymns represented the mettle and fortitude they displayed in breaking away from the religious establishment (Roman Catholic church), and forging ahead in their new faith traditions. The American versions of these faith traditions initially carried on the mantle of hymnody, with much content being shared between denominational lines. In many churches today, hymns and hymnals remain, either as a vital piece of corporate worship practices or as a sentimental nod to the past.

In other churches, including churches in most if not all major denominations, there has been a decided shift . . . .

Contemporary or Christistian ?

hymns of faithThe Power of Music – 

     “The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped . . . Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him !

O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and Thou hast healed me. O LORD, Thou hast brought up my soul from the grave . . . Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down into the pit . . . .

Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness . . . !”
Psalm 28:7-9 & 30:1-4

The spirit Behind the Music !

     “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel (messenger) of light . . . . Therefore it is no great thing of his servants also be transformed as ministers of righteousness . . . whose end shall be according to their works !”   II Corinthians 11:14-15

In the world we are witnessing changes such as never before; even in the last 10 years events which stagger the imagination are rapidly fulfilling. But are these changes effecting God’s children and even the church ?

Now we are beginning to understand how the dragon has opening his mouth, and is pouring out “a flood” in order to sweep thousands away with the world in the coming storm. Many are being subtly deceived into believing that the church and the world can be blended as one, without any danger to the integrity of God’s Truth, or His people . . .

We encourage all of our brothers and sisters to consider seriously the Words of Christ to us, through the apostle Paul, when he said, My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, “Be ye not unequally yoked (joined) together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?

     And what communion hath Light with darkness  And what concord (accord, harmony) hath Christ with Belial (the sons of Satan)? or what inheritance hath he which believeth with an infidel ?   And what agree-ment hath the Temple of God with idols?   For ye are the temple of the Living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them (their hearts and minds), and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

     Wherefore, come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord (Sovereign King), and touch not the unclean thing . . . and I will receive you. And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the LORD Almighty !”     II Corinthians 6:14-18

Love not this world, neither the things which are in the world. For if any many loves this world, the love of The Father is not in him . . . . for all that is in the world, the lusts (carnal desires) of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life . . . . is not of the Father, but is of the world.

And this world is passing away, and the lusts (carnal desires) thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever !”   I John 2:15-17

Windows to the Soul ?

 victory on the battlefieldDear brothers and sisters,
    Below we have shared a short page from a very powerful book on living Victory in the Christian life. And it is our prayer that these words will inspire and strengthen you, as we each seek to oneness with Christ !
 
     “The light (transparent, window) of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single (clear); thy whole body shall be full of Light . . . . But if thine eye be evil (opaque, darkened), thy whole body shall be filled with darkness. .  . !”     Matthew 6:22-23

    “God does not allow Satan (the accuser) to have unlimited access to our minds. He (Satan) and his fallen angels (demons, devils, evil spirits) can reach us only through our senses. These are sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. God has given to each of us the ability (through Christ), to control the use of these senses !

    They are the avenues (path ways) to our souls, and each of us chooses what travels over these avenues. This power of choice . . . ? Continue reading

The Narrow Way – youth conference

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is good; but an evil man out of the evil of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil . . . For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh !

And why call ye Me Lord, Lord (Sovereign King), and yet do not the things which I say ? . . . For many will say unto Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied (spoken under inspiration) in Thy name? and in Thy name cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?

And then will I confess unto them, I never knew you . . . !”     Luke 6:45-46, Matthew 7:13-23 & ref: John 17:3

The Spirits Behind the Masks !

Is it possible that the most popular actors and actresses of the 20th & 21st centuries have been, and are, being used as channels for the power and influence of evil spirits, those fallen angels cast out of heaven with Satan long ago? Listen to the confessions of the Hollywood elite as they describe how they are truly ‘energized’ by demonic spirits for their performances !

Journey with us again as we pull back the curtain on the most powerful mind-shaping institution in the world. Hollywood Unmasked 2 will reveal the truths which the industry has sought to keep hidden for generations. Presented by Dr. Jason Kovar, this film will forever change the way you look at ‘casual entertainment.’

The Distraction Dilemma

Music was made to serve a holy purpose, to lift the thoughts to that which is pure, noble, and elevating, and to awaken in the soul devotion and gratitude to God. What a contrast between the ancient custom and the uses to which music is now too often devoted! How many employ this gift to exalt self, instead of using it to glorify God! A love for music leads the unwary to unite with world-lovers in pleasure-gatherings where God has forbidden his children to go. Thus that which is a great blessing when rightly used, becomes one of the most successful agencies by which Satan allures the mind from duty and from the contemplation of eternal things.    – Christian Education p.62

The things you have described . . .  the Lord has shown me would take place just before the close of probation (Revelation 22:11). Every uncouth thing will be demonstrated. There will be shouting, with drums, music, and dancing. The senses of rational beings will become so confused that they cannot be trusted to make right decisions. . . .      A bedlam of noise shocks the senses and perverts that which if conducted aright might be a blessing. The powers of satanic agencies blend with the din and noise to have a carnival, and this is termed the Holy Spirit’s working. . . . Those things which have been in the past will be in the future. Satan will make music a snare by the way in which it is conducted. Let us give no place to strange exercisings, which really take the mind away from the deep movings of the Holy Spirit. God’s work is ever characterized by calmness and dignity. – Last Day Events p.158-159

There is a Fountain !

     “And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah), I will praise Thee: though Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is turned away, and Thou comfortedst me . . . . Therefore with joy shall ye draw Water out of the Wells of Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and restoration) !”     Isaiah 12:1-6 & ref: John 4:10-14

     “What shall I say?  He hath both spoken unto me, and Himself hath done it . . . it is Finished ! . . . Behold for peace (Shalom) I had great bitterness: but Thou hast in love to my soul delivered me from the pit of corruption: For Thou hast cast all my sins behind Thy back !”     Halleluyah !!!       Isaiah 38:15-18  &  John 19:28-37
