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

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 !

Quote –      “In order to be candidates for heaven we must meet the requirement of the law: “Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” (Luke 10:27).

     We can do this only* as we grasp by faith the righteousness of Christ. By beholding Jesus (Isaiah 45:22-25) we receive a living, expanding principle in the heart, and the Holy Spirit carries on the work, and the believer advances from grace to grace, from strength to greater strength, from character to more perfect character.

     He conforms to the image of Christ, until in spiritual growth he attains unto the measure of the full stature in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 4:7-8 and 4:12-13). Thus Christ makes an end of the curse of sin (Daniel 9:24), and sets the believing soul free from its action and effect !

     Christ alone is able to do this, for “in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest [of our profession], in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation* for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted” (Hebrews 2:17-18).

Reconciliation means that every barrier between the soul and God is removed, and that the sinner realizes what the pardoning love of God means. By reason of the sacrifice made by Christ for fallen men, God can justly pardon the transgressor (Romans 3:24-26) who accepts the merits* [worthiness] of Christ. Christ was the channel through which the mercy, love, and righteousness might flow from the heart of God to the heart of the sinner. “He is faithful and He is (I Am) just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness . . . !” I John 1:9
– 1 Selected Messages, p.395

note:     “Jesus is the only hope of the soul . . . . The moment the sinner lays hold of Christ by faith, that moment his sins are no longer upon him. Christ stands in the sinner’s place, and declares, “I have borne his guilt, I have been punished for his transgressions, I have taken his sins, and put My righteousness upon him.”
ref:   Isaiah 53:4-12, II Corinthians 5:21 and I Peter 1:24

     In Christ the sinner stands guiltless before the law. But how vain is the hope of entering heaven if we have no present faith in Christ, no delight in spiritual things, no joy in anticipating the joys of heaven.  . . . The Lord commands . . . and every command is a promise (Education, p.126), “Be ye holy, for I Am Holy.”

     The Christian’s constant endeavour should be to come into perfect conformity to the Life of Christ (Romans 8:2-4 and II Corinthians 4:10-11); we must look away from the darkness (doubt and fear), and face the Light (the unfailing assurance and power of God’s Word).      Do not, by your attitude of unbelief, charge God with partiality or unfaithfulness. Your doubt casts reflections upon the verity of His promises. When in living faith you come to Jesus, and become doers of His Word, you will taste and see that the Lord is good. You will say to all, “By His stripes we are healed.” You will think of Jesus, you will talk of Jesus, as One Who is willing and able* (full of power) to save to the uttermost all that come unto God by Him.

     If you believe in Christ as your Saviour, His perfect obedience is set to your account. You are pardoned as you look to Jesus as your Substitute and Surety (guarantee of a completed work) . The promise of God is, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and He is Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us (Ezekiel 36:22-36) from all unrighteousness.”                                                                                                                 – Present Truth, January 30, 1890

     In the prophecy of Daniel it was recorded of Christ that He shall “make reconciliation for iniquity, and . . . bring in everlasting righteousness” (Daniel 9:24). Every soul may say: “By His perfect obedience He has satisfied the claims of the law (for the law of God – Deity demands nothing less than perfect holiness, James 2:10 and Galatians 3:10-14) , and my only hope is found in looking to Him as my Substitute and Surety, Who obeyed the law perfectly for me.

  By faith in His merits* (worthiness) I am free* from (Galatians 3:22 and 5:1-4 and 4:21-29) the condemnation of the law. He clothes me with His righteousness, which answers all the demands of the law. I am complete in Him (Colossians 2:10 and Ephesians 1:6) Who brings in everlasting righteousness. He presents me to God in the spotless garment of which no thread was woven by any human agent. All is of Christ, and all the glory, honor, and majesty are to be given to the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world !”
– 1 Selected Messages, p.395-396

“Just prior to His leaving His disciples for the heavenly courts, Jesus encouraged them with the Promise of the Holy Spirit. This promise belongs as much to us as it did to them, and yet how rarely it is presented before the people, and its reception spoken of in the church. In consequence of this silence upon this most important theme, what promise do we know less about by its practical fulfillment than this rich promise of the gift of the Holy Spirit, whereby efficiency is to be given to all our spiritual labor?

     The Promise of the Holy Spirit is casually brought into our discourses, is incidentally touched upon, and that is all. Prophecies have been dwelt upon, doctrines have been expounded; but that which is essential to the church in order that they may grow in spiritual strength and efficiency, in order that the preaching may carry conviction with it, and souls be converted to God, has been largely left out of ministerial effort. This subject has been set aside, as if some time in the future would be given to its consideration. Other blessings and privileges have been presented before the people until a desire has been awakened in the church for the attainment of the Blessing promised of God . . .      But the impression concerning the Holy Spirit has been that this gift is not for the church now, but that at some time in the future it would be necessary for the church to receive it.  {TM 174.1}

All Other Blessings Found in One . . .

     This promised Blessing, if claimed by faith (Galatians 3:14), would bring all other blessings in its train, and it is to be given liberally to the people of God. Through the cunning devices of the enemy the minds of God’s people seem to be incapable of comprehending and appropriating the promises of God. They seem to think that only the scantiest showers of grace are to fall upon the thirsty soul.      The people of God have accustomed themselves to think that they must rely upon their own efforts, that little help is to be received from heaven; and the result is that they have little Light to communicate to other souls who are dying in error and darkness.

     The church has long been contented with little of the Blessing (Spirit-filled promises, John 6:63) of God; they have not felt the need of reaching up to the exalted privileges purchased for them at infinite cost. Their spiritual strength has been feeble, their experience of a dwarfed and crippled character, and they are disqualified for the work the Lord would have them to do (Mark 16:15-20). They are not able to present the great and glorious Truths (unfailing verity) of God’s Holy Word that would convict and convert souls through the agency of the Holy Spirit.

The power of God awaits their demand and reception. A harvest of joy will be reaped by those who sow the holy seeds of Truth.He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him !” – Testimonies to Ministers, p.174

Blood on the Doorposts – The power of Christ to restore marriages, families and homes !


     “Our condition through sin is unnatural, and the power that restores us must be Supernatural, else it has no value . . . . 

     There is but One Power that can break the hold of evil from the hearts of men, and that is the power* of God (Theos – Deity, Divinity) in Jesus Christ. Only through the blood (Life – Leviticus 17:11) of the Crucified One is there cleansing from sin. His grace* (G5485 – Divine Influence) alone can enable us to resist and subdue the tendencies of our fallen nature . . . !”     – Ministry of Healing, p.428

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious (blood bought) promises, that by these promises, we might be made partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in this world  . . . !”   II Peter 1:4

Abide in Me (The Word of God), and if My Words . . . which are Spirit and Life . . . abide in you, you shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done for you !”   John 15:7

Behold, I stand at the door of your heart and knock, if any man opens the door (surrenders their will) I will come into him, and sup with him, and he with Me !”

The power of the Blood of Christ ?

crownofthornsThe Blood of Christ ?

“Grace* and peace unto you (Ephesians 2:13-14) . . . from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne.   And from Jesus Christ, Who is the faithful Witness (martyr – Romans 6:10), and the First Begotten of the dead . . . even the death of the cross (Philippians 2:8), and the Prince of the kings of the earth . . .

Unto Him that loved us, and washed* us from our sins in His Own blood (Leviticus 17:11 and Isaiah 53:12), and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father . . . to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen !” Revelation 1:4-6

“This then is the message* (pledge of Divine assurance of good) which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all.   If we say that we have fellowship with Him (God), and yet walk in darkness* (shadiness, dimness, obscurity), we lie, and do not the Truth . . .

     But if we walk in the Light (Psalm 119:105 and John 1:1-14), as He (Christ Jesus) is in the Light, we have fellowship* (association, union) one with Another . . . and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin . . . !”

Together – July 2016 White House Mall

     “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, Whom we have not preached . . .”   II Corinthians 11:4

PLEASE Note:     We are sharing this video for the sole purpose to warn Christians of what the Bible has prophesied will take place just before the soon return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . . .

We do not in any way endorse that which is being promoted by the founders of this event . . . Especially after see that the Vatican stands hand and in hand with this movement. Please take time to read prayerfully the Scripture below, as well as the short article at the bottom which reveals Rome’s connection.

     Jesus said . . . “Father, sanctify them (make them holy, righteous) through Thy TRUTH, yea, Thy Word is Truth (verity) . . . that they all might be one, even as We are One !”   John 17:17-21
and ref: 15:1-7 and I John 2:3-6* and I John 3:22 and John 8:29

Let no man deceive you by any means . . . For that day (of Christ’s return) shall not come, except there come a falling away* (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawlessness, not subject to Jehovah’s law) be revealed, the son of perdition . . .

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped (served and obeyed) . . . So that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told (warned) you of these things ?

For the mystery of iniquity* doth already work (ref: Isaiah 14:12-17 & Ezekiel 28:13-19): only He Who not letteth (holds back) will continue to hold back, until He be taken out of the way . . . . And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit (breath) of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming . . .

     Even Him (Christ Jesus), Whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders (ref: Revelation 13:1-18) . . . And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish . . . Because they received not the love of the TRUTH (God’s Word – John 17:17), that they might be saved . . .

     And for this cause . . . God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. That they all might be damned (condemned) who believed not the TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness . . . !”
– II Thessalonians 2:3-13 Continue reading

Justified by Faith Alone !

bethesdaBut it is a faith which works by love . . .  

Now it was not written for his (Abraham’s) sake alone . . . But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed (reckoned), if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord (Sovereign King) from the dead . . .      Who was delivered (given up) for our offenses,* (ref: Romans 8:31-34) and was raised again for our justification. Therefore . . . being justified* by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ !”                                                    Romans 4:17-25 and 5:1, 12-19 and 6:1-6

Justified (H6663) = to make clear, to cleanse, to make righteousness
(G1344, 1342) = to render, declare just, innocent, free, holy, and righteous !


The Lord would have His people sound in the faith– not ignorant of the great Salvation so abundantly provided for them. They are not to look forward, thinking that at some future time a great work is to be done for them; for the work is now complete !

The believer is not called upon to make his peace with God; he never has nor ever can do this. He is to accept Christ as his Peace, for with Christ is God and peace.      Christ made an end of sin, bearing its heavy curse in His own body on the tree (II Peter 1:24), and He hath taken away the curse from all those who believe in Him as a personal Saviour (Galatians 3:8-14). He makes an end of the controlling power of sin in the heart, and the life and character of the believer testify to the genuine character of the grace* (G5485) of Christ.

A Sign and a Seal of the Righteousness of Faith ?

mountain sky1The 7th Day Sabbath –

     “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else.”
This is the message written in nature, which the Sabbath is appointed to keep in memory . . . . No other institution which was committed to the Jews (Israel – the children of Abraham, ref: Galatians 3:6-7) tended so fully to distinguish them from surrounding nations as did the Sabbath.

God designed that its observance should designate them as His worshipers . . .in Spirit and in Truth !”      ref: John 4:24

When the Lord bade Israel hallow His Sabbaths, He said, “They shall be a sign between Me and you, that ye may know that I Am Jehovah (Yehuwah) your God (Elohim – Mighty One) !”      Isaiah 40:18-29; 41:10; 45:22; Ezekiel 20:20 and Exodus 31:12-17

2016 – Pope calls for a “One World Religion !”

     “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (obey, yield homage to) him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear . . . !”
     Revelation 13:8

     “When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image (likeness) of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. . . .

     The enforcement of Sunday-keeping on the part of Protestant churches is an enforcement of the worship of the papacy. . . .

     In the very act of enforcing a religious duty by secular power, the churches would themselves form an image to the beast (Revelation 13:1-18); hence the enforcement of Sunday-keeping in the United States would be an enforcement of the worship (service, homage) of the beast and his image.” –

Great Controversy, p.445-449 (1911 edition)

     “When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism (Eastern mysticism), when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions . . .  Then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near !”
