O Men of God, Arise !

     “Thou therefore, my son (and my daughter), be strong in the grace* (G5485 – divine Influence) that is in Christ Jesus . . .

Endure hardness (conflict, adversity), as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. For no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life (this world) . . . . so that he may please Him Who hath chosen him to be a soldier . . .”

     “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (not even our own), but against principalities, and against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavens (ref: Ephesians 2:2) . . .

     Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God (Theos – Deity, divinity), that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all . . . to stand !”

     “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (weak, fleshly), but mighty* (full of power) through God, to the pulling down of strongholds, yea, casting down imaginations, and every high thing which exalts itself (Isaiah 14:12-16 and Revelation 12:7-11) against the knowing of God . . . . And bringing into captivity every thought to the perfect obedience of Christ . . . !”

An Urgent Appeal to our Churches !

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

     I ask that you will share this with every 7th day Adventist, and Christian you know. There is more at stake than many are being led to believe !

     “History is repeating. With the open Bible before them, and professing to reverence its teachings, many of the religious leaders of our time are destroying faith in it as the Word of God. They busy themselves with dissecting the Word, and set their own opinions above its plainest statements. In their hands God’s Word loses Its regenerating power. This is why infidelity runs riot, and iniquity is rife.

     When Satan has undermined faith in the Bible, he directs men to other sources for light and power. Thus he insinuates himself. Those who turn from the plain teaching of Scripture and the convicting power of God’s Holy Spirit . . . “for the Words I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !” (John 6:63) . . . are inviting the control of demons. Criticism and speculation concerning the Scriptures have opened the way for spiritism and theosophy–those modernized forms of ancient heathenism–to gain a foothold even in the professed churches of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . !”
Desire of Ages, p.258 

United we stand . . . A Solemn Appeal !

“The greatest want of the world is the want of men . . . men who will not be bought or sold, men who in their inmost souls are true and honest, men who do not fear to call sin by its right name, men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole, men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall . . . !”

The Battle is the LORD’s !

Guardian Angel     “And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth . . . Behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him (Elisha), Alas, my master!   How shall we do?

     And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them . . . for greater is He which dwells in you, that they which are in this world ! . . . . And Elisha prayed, and said, I pray Thee, open his (my servant’s) eyes that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw . . . .

     And, behold, the mountain was full of horses, and chariots of fire round about Elisha !”     II Kings 6:15-17 Continue reading

A Passion for Souls ?

shipwreck 1     “And I sought for a man or woman among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before Me, for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none ?”   Ezekiel 22:30

    “And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor (no one making intercession on behalf of the transgressor), therefore . . . !”   Isaiah 59:16-21

When a ship is wrecked in sight of shore, and the people look on powerless to help, they are shocked and pained beyond measure. They talk of every possible means whereby they might save those who are perishing; and after the ship has gone down, and the lives are lost, they still try to think of some means that might have been successful in saving the perishing. But there is a deadly evil in our land, which is sanctioned by law. Continue reading
