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 ?

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 . . . !

Remember the Sabbath to Keep it Holy –

7th day 2The Sabbath: How Do We Know Which Day It Is ?

article originally published in Signs of the Times,
September 22, 2015
written by: Ed Dickerson

I took a tour of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, USA, a while back, and my guide said that “the Declaration of Independence was signed in this room on July 4, 1776.” But he went on to explain that only one part of that statement was true. I love history, so standing merely a metre from where Thomas Jefferson had been seated in Independence Hall filled me with awe, and I thought perhaps I had misunderstood the man’s words. “It was not signed that day,” the guide said. “There was a war going on; they had more important things to deal with.”

On July 2 (and not the fourth), Congress unanimously approved the Declaration of Independence. But the vote was for a much altered document, with multiple passages crossed out, some words added and numerous corrections. It was definitely not suitable for framing or public display. The final draft was presented to Congress on July 4, which they then ratified as correct. On July 19, Congress ordered final “engrossed” copy, that is, one written in a large, clear hand. That’s the one on display at the National Archives, but this final copy wasn’t actually signed until August 2. 

Discovering that the signing of the Declaration of Independence didn’t take place on July 4, 1776, got me thinking about dates, days and, being a pastor, the Sabbath.

Dark Clouds Over Elberton ?

     Events are rapidly fulfilling all around us . . . . I encourage all to read the statement which was just recently released below, and what is possibly yet to transpire toward the end of this year when our congress, and the UN are addressed by the papal leader of the Vatican.

For the end of all things is at hand . . . Be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer !”   I Peter 4:7

One of the speakers slated for the Vatican rollout of the long-awaited Papal document on climate change once said the earth is overpopulated by at least 6 billion people.

The teaching document, called an encyclical, is scheduled for release on June 18 at Vatican City. Perhaps with the exception of the 1968 encyclical on contraception, no Vatican document has been greeted with such anticipation.

The political left is hoping for a document that ties belief in global warming to a religious obligation. Climate skeptics have already started criticizing the document.

The choice of Professor John Schnellnhuber, founding director of the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, as one of three presenters may be giving the left added hope and giving giving skeptics severe heartburn. He has been described as one of the more aggressive scientists on the question of man-made global warming.

In a talk given to what’s described as the “failed” 2009 Copenhagen climate conference, reported in the New York Times, Schnellnhuber, who has advised German President Angela Merkel and is a visiting professor at Oxford, said of global warming: “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.”

Social media under question ?

facebook 2Facebook’s new gender options ?

       “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind . . . to do those things which are not convenient (not becoming, not fit)  . . .!”
Romans 1:24-32

Quote from The Washington Post –   “Facebook introduced new gender options yesterday, making the site more user-friendly to people who don’t identify strictly as male or female. But while the change has been lauded by many people — particularly LGBT groups that have lobbied for such a change — it’s also been greeted by a bit of confusion. Like — what’s the difference between “bigender” and “gender fluid”? And what does “two spirit” mean, anyway . . . ?”

And when ye shall see all these things “begin to come to pass, then look up, for your Redemption draweth nigh !”   Luke 21:28

Each soul is of great value to the LORD God, for He and His Son have given all for their redemption (deliverance, freedom, salvation, rescue). Let us pray for all who are yet walking in the darkness of sin and unbelief. For Christ Jesus has paid for them whether they realize it or not  . . . He would have given His Life for even only one . . . !

We thank all who have supported the LORD’s work through Facebook, sharing the Glad Tidings of His Son. And we encourage you to visit us here at our website for updates and articles of faith and hope. We regret that we will no longer being using Facebook due to the choices which they have made in this regard.

May the LORD bless and keep you !

 

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

Free Indeed . . . !

Spirit filledNot by Might, nor by Strength, but by My Spirit saith the LORD of Hosts . . . !”

      The means by which we can overcome the wicked one is that by which Christ overcame, — by the power of the Word. God does not control our minds without our consent; but if we desire to know and to do His will, His Promises are ours: for our Saviour says, “Sanctify them through Thy Truth (Verity) . . . Thy Word is Truth ! and  Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth (verity of My Word) shall make you free !”  John 17:17 & John 8:32

Through faith in these Promises, every man may be delivered from the snares of error and the control of sin . . . !”

By sin we have been severed from the Life of God. Of ourselves we are utterly incapable of living a holy life. There are many who realize their helplessness, and who long for that spiritual Life which will bring them into harmony with God; they are vainly striving to obtain this Life.

Liberty of Conscience ?

     “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away (apostasy) first, and that man of sin (lawless one, transgressor of Jehovah’s divine law) be revealed, the son of perdition !

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God (divine, deity), or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself to be God . . . Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things ?”
II Thessalonians 2:3-9

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it (Judaea) depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto . . . For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be filled-fill . . .

     And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring . . . And when these things begin to come to pass, then Look up, and lift up your heads; for your Redemption draweth nigh !”     Luke 21:20-28
