Before they call . . . I will answer !

A storehouse of unlimited resources is opened to all who knock in faith . . .

Behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can close it . . . !”

Revelation 3:8 and Isaiah 22:22

     “Jesus answering saith unto them (us) . . . Have faith in God !
For God is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of a man, that He should change His mind; for hath He said, and shall He not do it?   or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good ?

Our Trial by Fire ?

faith-trial-2a     “Blessed be (praise be to) the God and Father of our Lord and Sovereign King Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy . . . hath begotten us (you and I) again unto a living Hope* (assurance) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . .
To an inheritance (for we are joint-heirs with Him) that is incorruptible, and undefiled . . . and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you _____ (your name). Who are kept by the power of God (Deity, divinity – II Peter 1:4) through faith,
ready to be revealed in this last time
. . . !

     “For we are made a spectacle unto men and to angels . . .”

Wherein, ye greatly rejoice . . . though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations.   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than that of gold which perishes . . .. even though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ !”
I Peter 1:3-7

     “Knowing this . . . that the trying (trial) of your faith, worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, so that ye may also be perfect and entire, lacking nothing . . . for faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . .

And blessed is the man or woman that endureth temptation, for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of Life, which the Lord (our Sovereign King) shall give to all them that love Him !”   James 1:3-4, 12 and ref: Romans 10:17

     “Yea, beloved . . . think it not strange concerning the fiery trial that is to try you (Malachi 3:1-4), as though some strange thing is happening unto you. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings (the trial of His faith in you) . . .so that when His glory shall be revealed ( in you – Colossians 1:27), ye may be glad also with exceeding joy !”   I Peter 4:12-13

     “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried . . . . And they shall call upon My name, and I will hear them . . .  and I will say, It is My people, and they shall say, The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is my God (Elohim – Mighty One) . . . !”

Blood on the Doorposts ?

9bb6cba8-6b14-4961-8eb6-c3f7e6247040     “The Israelites were required to sprinkle the door-posts with the blood of a slain lamb, in order that when the angel of death passed through the land, they might escape destruction. But if . . . instead of doing this simple act of faith and obedience, they had barricaded the door, and taken every precaution to keep the destroying angel out, their pains would have been in vain, and would have testified to their unbelief . . .

When the blood was seen upon the door-post, it was enough. The salvation (the deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and restoration) of the house was assured. So it is in the work of Salvation; it is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanseth from all sin . . . !

The LORD would have His people sound in the faith– not ignorant of the great Salvation (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) so abundantly provided for them . . . !

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.

The Truth About Christmas ?

     “I charge you therefore before God, and the Lord (our Sovereign King) Jesus Christ . . . Who shall judge the quick (living) and the dead at His soon appearing . . . Preach the Word; be instant in season, and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine . . .

     For the time will come when they (the church) will not endure sound doctrine (teaching, instruction from God’s Word) . . . . But after their own lusts (carnal, worldly desires) shall they heap to themselves teachers, which have itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth (God’s Word – John 17:17), and shall be turned unto fables . . . !”     II Timothy 4:1-4

We encourage every son and daughter of the LORD God,Almighty to seek Light from the Word of Truth, and search the Scriptures for themselves. Let us examine all that we do, and all that we call Christian in the Light of God’s Word, lest we be found futilely attempting to justify pagan practices in the name of Christ Jesus.

I have shared a few good resource sites below, and also encourage each of us to stand for Truth, regardless of what others choose to do . . .

The Righteousness Of Faith !

     “For the Promise, that He should be the heir of the world . . . was not to Abraham, or to his Seed* through the law, but through the righteousness of faith !”
Romans 4:13-21 and ref: Galatians 3:16 and 3:27-29

     “Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of Justification* by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered . . . It is the third angel’s message in verity !

The prophet declares, “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” Brightness, glory, and power are to be connected with the third angel’s message (Revelation 14), and conviction will follow wherever it is preached in demonstration of the Spirit.

     How will any of our brethren know when this Light shall come to the people of God? As yet, we certainly have not seen the Light that answers to this description. God has Light for His people, and all who will accept it will see the sinfulness of remaining in a lukewarm condition . . . !”
– Review & Herald, April 1, 1890

     “What is Justification* (to declare, to render innocent, holy and righteous) by faith? It is the work of God in laying the glory of man in the dust, and doing for man that which it is not in his power to do for himself.

The Power of Simply Believing God . . . ?

Daniel - lions 4     “We have most precious Promises in the Word of God, which ought to give us courage and confidence. They should enable us to come out of uncertainty and darkness, to come where we may know that the Spirit beareth witness with our spirit (mind) that we are the children of God. There is nothing wanting in the store-house of our God.

     Jesus has said, “Believe me, that I Am in the Father, and the Father . . . which is Spirit (John 4:24 and 3:1-2) . . . in Me; or else believe me for the very works’ sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me (the Word of God), the works that I do, shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.”   John 14:11-12 and 7:37-39.

The disciples of Christ are to do greater works than Jesus Himself has done. He says further: “Whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” “If ye ask anything in My name, I will do it.”  John 14:13-14 & I John 3:22-24  Christ spoke these Words for the comfort of all who should have faith in Him, and it is our privilege to believe that God will do just as He has said He would !

Victory and Freedom – The Conundrum of the “Balanced View ?”

AD VindicateThis article was posted at ADVindicate, and the link to the original article is located at the bottom of the page. We pray that what you read here will be a great blessing to you and those you love !

August 20, 2015

Scenario One

The year was 1999, and a denominational publishing house heard my conversion story from homosexuality, and asked me to submit my story for publication, as a resource for our denomination. I was given a deadline of four weeks.

After much prayer and fourteen-hour days of writing, I met their deadline. After many months, I finally called for a status report.

“Oh!  You haven’t received your manuscript? It was supposed to have been returned to you.”

“Why would it be returned?” I asked.

“It was rejected. The book committee decided they wanted a more balanced view.”

“Balanced view of what?” I asked. “I was asked to submit my story. Are you suggesting it is unbalanced?” I was alarmed.

“No, they just thought it would be better to have more stories to put into one book in order to present a balanced view,” came the reply.

I wondered aloud, “So stories of victory and success must be balanced out with stories of failure?    Why?”

The Law of the Spirit and Life ?

Eli     “For the Law of the Spirit of (and) Life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death . . . !”   Romans 8:2-4

There are Truths in the Word which, like veins of precious ore, are hidden beneath the surface. The hidden treasure is discovered as it is searched for, as a miner searches for gold and silver. The evidence of the Truth (verity) of God’s Word is in the Word itself. Scripture is the key that unlocks scripture. The deep meaning of the Truths of God’s Word is unfolded to our minds by His Spirit.”                                    – 8 Testimonies, p.157

For spiritual things are Spiritually discerned . . . !”     ref: I Corinthians 2:14 

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth (Malachi 4:3-6); but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it: for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success .And be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves . . . .For whoso looketh into the perfect Law of liberty (freedom from sin and death – Romans 8:2), and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hear, but a doer of the work (John 14:10 & Philippians 2:13) . . . . this man shall be blessed in his deed !”     James 1:21-25

Have I not commanded (promised) you?  Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid nor be dismayed: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go !”   Joshua 1:8-9

For it is God which worketh in you both to will, and to do of His good pleasure !”     Philippians 2:13″And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him . . . because we keep His Commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight . . . !”    I John 3:22
     “And he that keepeth His Commandments dwelleth in Him, and He (God – John 4:24) in him . . . And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us . . . !”   I John 3:24

And Jesus (Yehushua) said . . . . Abide in Me, and I in you. For as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye bear fruit (Galatians 5:22) except ye abide in Me . . . . For I Am the Vine, and ye are the branches: he that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit . . . for without Me ye can do nothing !If ye abide in Me (the Word – John 1:1 & 1:14), 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 15:1-7 & John 6:63

If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love . . . even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love !”   John 15:10
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous !”   I John 5:2-3

And hereby we do know that we know Him . . . which is Life eternal . . . (ref: John 17:3), if we keep His Commandments. For he that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the Truth (God’s Word – John 17:17) is not in Him . . . . But whoso keepeth His Word, in him verily is the love of God perfected; and hereby know we that we are in Him . . . . He that saith he abideth in Him (Christ Jesus), ought himself also so to walk, even as He (Jesus) walked !”   I John 2:3-6Jesus saith  . . . . “Believest thou not that I Am in the Father, and the Father  . . . which is Spirit (John 4:24) . . . is in Me?  for the Words that I speak unto you,

I speak not of Myself: but the Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the works . . . . If ye love Me, keep My commandments !”   John 14:10-15     And Jesus said . . . “He that sent Me is with Me: the Father hath not left Me alone; for I do always those things that please Him ! John 8:29

     “There is much Light yet to shine forth from the law of God and the gospel (Glad Tidings) of righteousness. This message, understood in its true character, and proclaimed in the Spirit, will lighten the earth with its glory (Revelation 14:6-15 & 18:1-4) The great decisive question is to be brought before all nations, tongues, and peoples.

     The closing work of the third angel’s message will be attended with a power that will send the rays of the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:1-6) into all the highways and byways of life, and decisions will be made for God . . . !”
