The Fullness of His Blessing – Awaits Our Demand and Reception !

     To each of us our Lord and Saviour says . . . . “The Kingdom of heaven suffereth violence,* and the violent take it by force !”  Matthew 11:12

     This verse of Scripture has often left me wondering . . . What could our Saviour have meant when He spoke these words to his disciples and the multitudes that followed Him ?

     As I prayed and considered one day these words of Jesus, I was led to look up the words “violent” and also “violence” in its original greek of the text.  What our Lord revealed has changed my life forever.  And it is my prayer that as you read the article below, you also will be inspired to press your case as never before “boldly to the throne of grace !”   ref: Galatians 3:14 and Acts 2:30-39

   The word “violent,” and “violence” literally mean =  to seize, to take hold of with unyielding persistence, and refuse to be denied !
Luke 18:1-8* & Genesis 32:24-30*

     Not because we deserve anything, but rather because we claim by faith (Romans 10:17) the merits and worthiness of our crucified and resurrected Saviour, for God has promised, and He verily cannot lie !

ref: Numbers 23:19, I Kings 8:56-58 and Isaiah 55:8-11

     “And all the promises of God are in Him (the Word of God) yea, and in Him, Amen !”
II Corinthians 1:20

Quote –
     “The parable of the merchantman seeking goodly pearls has a double significance: it applies not only to men as seeking the kingdom of heaven, but to Christ as seeking His lost inheritance. Christ, the heavenly merchantman seeking goodly pearls, saw in lost humanity the pearl of price.

     In man, defiled and ruined by sin, He saw the possibilities of redemption. Hearts that have been the battleground of the conflict with Satan, and that have been rescued by the power of love (self-sacrifice), are more precious to the Redeemer than are those who have never fallen.

      God looked upon humanity, not as vile and worthless; He looked upon it in Christ, He saw it as it might become through redeeming love. He collected all the riches of the universe, and laid them down in order to buy the pearl. And Jesus, having found it, resets it in His own diadem. “For they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon His land.” Zechariah 9:16. “They shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels.” Malachi 3:17.

     But Christ as the precious pearl, and our privilege of possessing this heavenly treasure, is the theme on which we most need to dwell. It is the Holy Spirit that reveals to men the preciousness of the goodly pearl. The time of the Holy Spirit’s power is the time when in a special sense the heavenly gift is sought and found. In Christ’s day many heard the gospel, but their minds were darkened by false teaching, and they did not recognize in the humble Teacher of Galilee the Sent of God.

     But after Christ’s ascension His enthronement (Zechariah 6:12-13)in His mediatorial kingdom was signalized by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. On the day of Pentecost the Spirit was given. Christ’s witnesses proclaimed the power of the risen Saviour. The light of heaven penetrated the darkened minds of those who had been deceived by the enemies of Christ. They now saw Him exalted to be “a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” Acts 5:31.

     They saw Him encircled with the glory of heaven, with infinite treasures in His hands to bestow upon all who would turn from their rebellion. As the apostles set forth the glory of the Only-Begotten of the Father, three thousand souls were convicted.

     They were made to see themselves as they were, sinful and polluted, and Christ as their friend and Redeemer. Christ was lifted up, Christ was glorified, through the power of the Holy Spirit resting upon men.
     By faith these believers saw Him as the One Who had borne humiliation, suffering, and death that they might not perish but have everlasting Life . . . . “and this Life is in His Son !” I John 5:11-12. The revelation (revealing) of Christ by the Spirit brought to them a realizing sense of His power and majesty, and they stretched forth their hands to Him by faith, saying, “I believe !”

     Then the Glad Tidings (gospel) of a risen Saviour were carried to the uttermost bounds of the inhabited world. The church beheld converts flocking to her from all directions. Believers were reconverted. Sinners united with Christians in seeking the pearl of great price.
     The prophecy was fulfilled, The weak shall be “as David,” and the house of David “as the Angel of the Lord.” Zechariah 12:8. Every Christian saw in his brother the divine similitude of benevolence and love. One interest prevailed. One object swallowed up all others. All hearts beat in harmony. The only ambition of the believers was to reveal the likeness of Christ’s character, and to labor for the enlargement of His kingdom.

     “The multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul. . . . With great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus (Ephesians 1:17-21 and Romans 6:1-6); and great grace was upon them all.” Acts 4:32, 33. “And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” Acts 2:47. The Spirit of Christ animated the whole congregation; for they had found the pearl of great price.

     These scenes are to be repeated, and with greater power. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was the former rain, but the Latter Rain will be more abundant. The Spirit awaits our demand and reception. Christ is again to be revealed in His fulness by the Holy Spirit’s power.

     Men will discern the value of the precious pearl, and with the apostle Paul they will say, “What things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge* (knowing) of Christ Jesus my Lord.”   Philippians 3:7-8 and ref: John 17:3*

– Christ Object Lessons, p.121

     “Christ had an infinite variety of subjects from which to choose in His teaching, but the one upon which He dwelt most largely was the endowment of His Holy Spirit. What great things He predicted for the church because of this endowment!   Yet what subject is less dwelt upon today? what promise less fulfilled?

     Prophecies are dwelt upon, doctrines are expounded, but the promise of the Spirit, the fulfillment of which is necessary for the success of God’s work, is incidentally touched upon, and that is all. Other blessings and privileges have been set before the church but the thought entertained regarding the promise of the Spirit is that it is not for the church now, that at some time in the future the church will receive this gift.
     But this promise belongs to us now as surely as it belonged to the disciples.

ref: Galatians 3:14
and Acts 2:30-39

   God’s people seem to be incapable of comprehending and appropriating (as their very own) this Promise. They seem to think that only the scantiest showers of grace are to fall on the thirsty soul (ref: Isaiah 44:3). They act as if they must rely on their own efforts for Salvation (rescue, deliverance, freedom and healing) and as a result they have little strength for the work of overcoming.

     They have little Light to give to the souls dying in the darkness of error. Church members have long been content with little of the Blessing of God (John 6:63). They have not felt the need of reaching for the exalted privileges provided for them at infinite cost.
     Their spirituality is feeble, their experience dwarfed and crippled; and therefore they are disqualified for the work of the Lord. They are unable to present in the power of the Spirit the great and glorious Truths (unfailing verity – John 17:17) of God’s Word . . .

     It is not because of any restriction on God’s part that the riches of His grace* (G5485 – the divine Influence) do not flow to men. His gift is godlike.
     He gave with a liberality that men do not appreciate because they do not love to receive. If all were willing to receive, all would be filled with the Spirit. By resting content with small blessings, we disqualify ourselves for receiving the Spirit in its unlimited fullness. We are too easily satisfied with a ripple on the surface, when it is our privilege to expect the deep moving of the Spirit of God.

     Expecting little, we receive but little . . .”
– Review and Herald, June 10, 1902

Spiritual Formation & the Serpent’s Whisper

 

     “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs* . . . come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.   For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles . . .
     Which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world . . . to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty . . . !”   Revelation 16:13-15

Satan has long been preparing for his final effort to deceive the world. The foundation of his work was laid by the assurance given to Eve in Eden, “Ye shall not surely die.” “In the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened (enlightenment), and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

     Little by little he has prepared the way for his master-piece of deception in the development of Spiritualism.     He has not yet reached the full accomplishment of his designs; but it will be reached in the last remnant of time.

     Except those who are kept by the power of God, through faith in His Word, the whole world will be swept into the ranks of this delusion.   The people are fast being lulled to a fatal security, to be awakened only by the outpouring of the wrath of God (Revelation 14 and 15). 
– Great Controversy 1888, p.561

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

Satan’s Masterpiece of Deception ?

In a previous article addressing the Sunday law and its chain reactions, we focused on the sequence of final events. In this article we will be focusing on how the final scenes will come about and how Sabbath keepers will be brought onto the world stage. But before we look at this final study, there are some questions that need answers.

HOW COULD HINDUS, BUDDHISTS, HUMANISTS OR ATHEISTS SUPPORT ENFORCED SUNDAY OBSERVANCE?

     If the USA would enact a national Sunday law today, how many countries around the world would follow her lead? For example, how could Hindus or Buddhists, humanists or atheists support Sunday observance? And how supportive would the secular society in America and Europe be if they were deprived of Sunday shopping or sporting events? John prophesied that in the end time, “all the world wondered after the beast . . . ” (KJV, Revelation 13:3).
