A Sign and a Seal of the Righteousness of Faith ?

mountain sky1The 7th Day Sabbath –

     “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I Am God, and there is none else.”
This is the message written in nature, which the Sabbath is appointed to keep in memory . . . . No other institution which was committed to the Jews (Israel – the children of Abraham, ref: Galatians 3:6-7) tended so fully to distinguish them from surrounding nations as did the Sabbath.

God designed that its observance should designate them as His worshipers . . .in Spirit and in Truth !”      ref: John 4:24

When the Lord bade Israel hallow His Sabbaths, He said, “They shall be a sign between Me and you, that ye may know that I Am Jehovah (Yehuwah) your God (Elohim – Mighty One) !”      Isaiah 40:18-29; 41:10; 45:22; Ezekiel 20:20 and Exodus 31:12-17

Remember the Sabbath to Keep it Holy –

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

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.

The Belly of the Beast . . . !

     “God has His workmen in every age. The call of the hour is answered by the coming of the man. Thus when the Divine Voice cries, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” the response will come, “Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8.

Let all who labor effectually in the canvassing field feel in their hearts that they are doing the work of the Lord in ministering to souls who know not the Truth for this time. They are sounding the note of warning in the highways and byways to prepare a people for the great day of the Lord, which is so soon to break upon the world.

We have no time to lose. We must encourage this work. Who will go forth now with our publications? The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) imparts a fitness for the work to every man and woman who will co-operate with divine power. All the requisite talent, courage, perseverance, faith, and tact will come as they put the armor on. A great work is to be done in our world, and human agencies will surely respond to the demand. The world must hear the warning. When the call comes, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” send back the answer clear and distinct, “Here am I; send me.”

And All the World Wondered After the Beast ?

     “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast (ref: Daniel 7:16-25) rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns; and upon his heads the name of blasphemy . . .    ref: John 10:33 and Revelation 17:7-18

     And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death . . . and the deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast . . . and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship (serve and obey) him, whose names are not written in the book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world . . . . If any man have an ear, let him hear !”   Revelation 13:1-10, 16-18

A.D. The Bible Continues – Truth or error ?

     AD The Bible Continues . . . catapults itself into prime time television,airing on NBC Easter weekend.  It gains it steam from the Bible TV series on the History channel and the Son of God movie.  Despite being doomed to failure by the secular critics from the LA Times and Entertainment Weekly, it premiered with 13.1 million viewers.  Each succeeding week retaining at least 10 million viewers.  To put that in perspective 4 in 10 Americans have watched at least 1 episode. Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett insist that they stick to the Bible, but evidence suggests otherwise . . .

The Influence of the New Age Movement on Christianity !

 

Part.2

And Jesus (Yehushua) answered and said . . . . Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name saying I am Christ (I am a Christian), and shall deceive many . . . !”   Matthew 24:4-35

Quote:     “The book, Living Temple contains the Alpha of these theories. The Omega would follow in a little while. I tremble for our people. These beautiful representations are similar to the temptation that the enemy brought to Adam and Eve in Eden.    – Sermons and Talks, vol.1 p.341

Quote:      “I call upon those who have been connected with these binding influences to break the yoke to which they have long submitted, and stand as free men in Christ. Nothing but a determined effort will break the spell that is upon them . . .

     Be not deceived; many will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. We have now before us the alpha of this danger. The omega will be of a most startling nature !
 

     We need to study the Words that Christ uttered in the prayer that He offered just before His trial and crucifixion. “These Words spake Jesus, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee: as Thou hast given Him power over all flesh (I Peter 3:18, Romans 6:10, Romans 8:2-11 & Colossians 1:27) , that He should give Eternal Life to as many as Thou hast given Him.

     And this is Life eternal, that they might know Thee  (Genesis 4:1, Ephesians 5:30-32 & John 17:21) the only True God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent. I have glorified Thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do (Isaiah 45:11). And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine Own self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was. I have manifested Thy name (character) unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy Word !”   John 17:1-6 & Revelation 12:17 & 14:12.
