International Adventist Prayer Conference – 2017 preview

     “And Jesus answering saith unto them . . . Have faith in God !
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 ?”
                                                                                   Mark 11:20-24 and Luke 18:1-8

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 !”
                                                                   – Manuscript Releases volume 20, p.117 Continue reading

The Truth Shall Make You Free !

      In John chapter 8, Jesus has given each of us this great assurance . . . “Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall set you free !”  Yet today, we see thousands of professed children of God struggling in the bondage of sin. So how do we take hold of this promise, and make it our very own?

Jesus goes on to say, “the Devil is a liar, and the father (source) of all lies.” So here is where the battle begins . . .

First, you must know above all else, who you are in Christ Jesus . . . . “Chosen in Him before the very foundations of this world.”  Ephesians 1:1-4  and “complete in Him, who is the Head of all principalities and powers !”  Colossians 2:10

     And “in Whom you also are (present tense) circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ (when He died unto sin – Romans 6:10 and 6:1-6 — you also died with Him, and in Him) !”     Colossians 2:11-12

     Today . . . “you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God !”   Colossians 3:3
and because you believe God’s Word, and know that He cannot lie . . . “sin does not have any more dominion over you !”     Romans 6:11-14

For greater is He that is in us, than he which is in this world !”   I John 4:4

Quote –
     “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 world . . . . “He has borne our sins in His own body upon that tree !”   I Peter 2:24 and II Corinthians 5:21

The LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all . . . !”   Isaiah 53:4-12

     And our Mighty Redeemer last words as He hung on Calvary was . . . “IT IS FINISHED (paid in full) !”   and when He was raised again on that glorious morning of the third day, He shook off the dust of that darkened tomb, and looking back in triumph He cried . . . . “O death where is thy sting (poison), O grave, where is thy victory !”
I Corinthians 15:55

     And you were “in Him” when He spoke these Words of Life . . . O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine help. Yea, I will be thy King (Matthew 28:18-19), for where is any other that may SAVE thee in all of thy cities?  I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction, and repentance shall be hid from Mine eyes (I will not change My mind !”   Hosea 13:9-14

     Every hope that we have of Salvation* (deliverance, freedom, healing) 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, 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: Isaiah 45:22-25

     Jesus is the remedy for sin. We may have intellect, but human intelligence can devise no way of salvation; we may have earthly possessions, but that will not provide a ransom for the sin of our soul. Salvation (deliverance, freedom, healing) is the gift of God through (in) Christ, and the promise is, “Whosoever believeth on Him (the promise, the Word of God) shall not perish, but have eternal Life.” 
– Signs of the times, March 10, 1890 

For this is the record (evidence, witness) that God hath given unto us eternal Life, and this Life is in His Son !”     I John 5:11

     And quoting from that promise which our Lord (Sovereign King) and Saviour later spoke to Nicodemus, we read . . . . “Look unto Me, and be ye SAVED* (rescued, delivered, set free, healed and made whole), all the ends of the earth: for I Am God (Elohim – the Mighty One), and there is none else.

     For I have sworn by Myself, yea, the Word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return unto Me void, that . . . . In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel (children of faith – Galatians 3:6-7) be justified,* and shall glory . . . !”
Isaiah 45:22-25 and ref: I Corinthians 1:29-31

     Thank your Father in heaven outloud each day for giving you the victory through (in) your Saviour Jesus Christ. Then surrender your heart, your soul, your mind and body as His temple . . . knowing that you are verily His both by creation, and by redemption. And that “He is faithful Who hath promised !”

According as His divine power hath given unto us _______ (your name) ALL THINGS that pertain unto Life and godliness . . . through the knowing of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue . . . !”   II Peter 1:3-4 and John 17:3

     “Who are kept by the power* of God (Theos – Deity, divinity) through faith unto Salvation* (freedom, liberty, rescue, healing and restoration), ready to be revealed in this last time !”   I Peter 1:5

Quote –
     “When the soul surrenders itself to Christ, a new power takes possession of the new heart. A change is wrought which man can never accomplish for himself. It is a supernatural work, bringing a supernatural element into human nature. The soul that is yielded to Christ becomes His Own fortress, which He holds in a revolted world, and He intends that no authority shall be known in it but His own. A soul thus kept in possession by the heavenly agencies is impregnable to the assaults of Satan.”
– Desire of Ages, p.324

Quote –
     “Henceforward Christ’s followers were to look upon Satan as a conquered foe. Upon the cross, Jesus was to gain the victory for them; that victory He desired (desires) them to accept as their own. “Behold,” He said (says), “I give unto you _______ (your name) power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you !”  Luke 10:19

     The omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit is the defense of every contrite soul. Not one that in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power. The Saviour is by the side of His tempted and tried ones.

     With Him there can be no such thing as failure, loss, impossibility, or defeat; we can do all things through Him who strengthens us. When temptations and trials come, do not wait to adjust all the difficulties, but look to Jesus, your helper.  
  
     There are Christians who think and speak altogether too much about the power of Satan. They think of their adversary, they pray about him, they talk about him, and he looms up greater and greater in their imagination. It is true that Satan is a powerful being; but, thank God, we have a Mighty Saviour, Who cast out the evil one from heaven – Luke 10:17-19). Satan is pleased when we magnify his power. Why not talk of Jesus? Why not magnify His power and His love?”

– Desire of Ages, p.493

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

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

Striving for the Mastery – The Crown of Eternal Life !

 Moses 2    “Transgression of physical law is transgression of the moral law; for God is as truly the Author of physical laws as He is the Author of the moral law. His law (Luke 10:25-28) is written with His Own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, every faculty, which has been entrusted to man . . .”

And every man that striveth for the mastery, is temperate (exercises self-control in both diet and chastity) in all things . . . Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown (one that perishes), but we an incorruptible . . . !”
I Corinthians 9:24-27

In the preparation of a people for the Lord’s second coming, a great work is to be accomplished through the promulgation (teaching and instruction) of health principles.
The people are to be instructed in regard to the needs of the physical organism and the value of healthful living as taught in the Scriptures, that the bodies which God has created may be presented to Him a living sacrifice, fitted to render Him acceptable service . . . Continue reading

Subtle Seduction – Modern Miracles and an Ancient Illusion ?

     We thank you for your prayers and your support. For the LORD has blessed above and beyond all that we could have asked or even imagined. During our 3 week trip with Steps to Life of sharing the Glad Tidings of the freedom which has been given to every child of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, we have seen the LORD’s hand in mighty ways !

     We also thank the entire team of Steps to Life Australia for all that they did to make this series possible. For not only has the last days danger of spiritualism and Eastern mysticism been revealed to thousands of God’s children, but many more have for perhaps the first time taken hold of Christ and the victory and freedom which He lived, died and rose again to freely give to all who are willing to believe !

     This new 6 part series has been specially prepared for Eric and Sarah’s 2016 visit with Steps to Life of Australia. The series presented and filmed there in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane contains 80% new and updated materials not included in the original film sets from Little Light Studios and Amazing Discoveries.

     Part 4 greatly expands on the pagan roots of many of today’s holistic and alternative energy healing methods. Practices such as acupuncture, Reiki, kinesiology, iridology, Ayurveda, qigong and aromatherapy are examined closely, along with the history and spiritual background of their founders.

     It is our prayer that what you learn here will help to shed Light from God’s Word on many of the practices coming into the Christian church under the guise of alternative health and healing.

SERIES DESCRIPTION –

     Eric began training in the martial arts at the age of fourteen, just after his parent’s separation. Searching for meaning and purpose in his life, he began his journey on a path which promised assurance, confidence, and self-control.

     Over the next 24 years of training, Eric received black belt and instructor certification in seven styles of the combative arts. He was inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame. With a background in natural and alternative medicine, Eric studied extensively in the field of energy healing. He was recognized as an instructor in the Chinese internal arts of Tai-chi Chuan, Bagua Zhang, Qi-gong and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

     The life he lived was to all appearances a success. but through the years involved in these Eastern mystical arts, Eric had become blind to the forces which had set themselves to destroy both himself, his wife Sarah, and their children. Their marriage crumbled . . .

     Then a miracle happened which would forever change their lives. After nearly five years of separation and divorce, the Lord Jesus Christ, in answer to the prayers of faith reunited Eric and Sarah in the covenant of marriage, restoring both their family and their home.
     Eric shares the miracle of how God opened his blind eyes, and delivered him from the powers of darkness. Today, Eric and Sarah’s lives are dedicated to sharing the Glad Tidings of the Salvation and freedom in Christ which we have each been given through faith in Him . . . Of His love and His power, and His great desire to set every captive free !
