All His biddings are enabling

Seventhday Adventist

As we near the end of time, it is essential that our faith in the Lord be strong.  Even as a mustard seed. Jesus ask in Luke 18:8 “…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” -Luke 18:8  It will require faith in the word of God to make it in these last days. We will need to have had an experience in His word, knowing that His word is true and would not return unto him void. (See Isaiah 55:11)

From the Spirit of Prophecy, we read:

The word of God is the seed. Every seed has in itself a germinating principle. In it the life of the plant is enfolded. So there is life in God’s word. Christ says, “The words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63. “He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life.” John 5:24. In every command and in every promise of the word of God is the power, the very life of God, by which the command may be fulfilled and the promise realized. He who by faith receives the word is receiving the very life and character of God. COL 38.1

The heavenly intelligences will work with the human agent who seeks with determined faith that perfection of character which will reach out to perfection in action. To everyone engaged in this work Christ says, I am at your right hand to help you.  COL 332.2

As the will of man co-operates with the will of God, it becomes omnipotent. Whatever is to be done at His command may be accomplished in His strength. All His biddings are enablings. COL 333.1

Powerful promises, whatever God has asked us to do, Country Living, Victory Over Sin, Trusting Him, etc., we can do it in His strength, remember, “All His biddings are enabling.” And in the book of Philippians He has promised, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13

What shall be the sign of thy coming?

Seventhday Adventist

We are on the “verge of a stupendous crisis”, but, “but the end is not yet”, what we are witnessing with the disease outbreaks, the wars and rumors of wars (even rumors of WW III), economic crisis, corruption, crime, etc, “are the beginning of sorrows”(Matt. 24:8),  the word “sorrows” in the concordance means “child birth pain”, in other words, as the due date gets closer, a mother experiences sharper and more frequent pain. In the same way, what the world is experiencing now, will only get worst until the Lord comes.  Even though the “end is not yet”, and we are at the “beginning of sorrows”, we are cautioned, “…the final movements will be rapid ones.”—Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, p. 11.  “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matt. 24:22  God in His mercy is going to shorten to pain and suffering.

Among the perplexities of the world there is hope, peace and comfort in Christ Jesus. This is our only safety, “give Him your heart without measure”, His coming is near, “…even at the doors” (Matthew 24:33)

Matthew 24:3-8
” And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Through spiritualism, Satan appears as a benefactor of the race, healing the diseases of the people, and professing to present a new and more exalted system of religious faith; but at the same time he works as a destroyer.  – {GC 589.1}

Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer.  – {GC 589.2}

While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. “The earth mourneth and fadeth away,” “the haughty people … do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” Isaiah 24:4, 5. – {GC 589.3}

85 people has as much wealth as half of the world’s population

Christ soon return, Seventhday Adventist, Time of trouble

Can you imagine, if you take half of the world’s population (not including the 85 of course) and add their wealth together, then you will arrive at the astounding mass of wealth (110 trillion) of just 85 people (the super rich).  But what does God has to say about this?

“Psalms 50:10-12 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.”

The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.” -Haggai 2:8

What would be the reason for the main stream media to release this information at this, when the world is in the worst economic crisis ever (we just don’t know it yet)?  When so many people already know that the rich is getting richer and the poor is getting poorer? (two classes are being created)  Is this part of the plan for the “new world order”? Is this to agitate the people? What does God has to say about what is happening?

In the future, strange things will happen. I tell you this so that you may not be surprised at what
takes place. We shall all need to maintain a close connection with the Lord. The end is much
nearer than when we first believed…. – {TDG 309.5}
Under the leadership of Satan there are men who today are doing all in their power to plunge the
world into commercial strife. Thus Satan is trying to bring about a condition of things that will make
the world uncivilized. He desires to see strange things acted out, which God, who is too wise to err,
has not ordained. But the Lord, yes, our God, will be Ruler of the heavens and the earth. If men
and women will carry out His requirements, it will be seen that He is Ruler, carrying out His divine
will.—Letter 114, October 27, 1910, to Elder A. G. Daniells, president of the General Conference. –
{TDG 309.6} – TDG 309.5
At the same time anarchy is seeking to sweep away all law, not only divine, but human. The
centralizing of wealth and power; the vast combinations for the enriching of the few at the expense
of the many; the combinations of the poorer classes for the defense of their interests and claims;
the spirit of unrest, of riot and bloodshed; the world-wide dissemination of the same teachings that
led to the French Revolution—all are tending to involve the whole world in a struggle similar to that
which convulsed France. – {Ed 228.2}  (please read The Great Controversy – Chapter 15. “The Bible and the French Revolution”)

Saints of God, God is in control, the world as it is may seem like it is being run by a few, but God has already promised us, “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” -Daniel 2:44

“…prepare to meet thy God…” (Amos 4:12)  “…be ye also ready…” (Matt. 24:44) “…follow the lamb withersoever he goeth…” (Rev. 14:4)

The New Deal (Part 2) – What is Money? (Sermon by Pastor Davis)

Christ soon return, Seventhday Adventist, Time of trouble

Preparation for the final crisis

“And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by reason of the famine. And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house. And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money faileth. And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your cattle, if money fail.” (Genesis 47:13-16)

What Abraham was in the land of his sojourn, what Joseph was in Egypt, and Daniel in the courts of Babylon, the Hebrew people were to be among the nations. They were to reveal God to men.” {DA 27.2}

Every institution established by Seventh-day Adventists is to be to the world what Joseph was in Egypt and what Daniel and his fellows were in Babylon. As in the providence of God these chosen ones were taken captive, it was to carry to heathen nations the blessings that come to humanity through a knowledge of God. They were to be representatives of Jehovah. They were never to compromise with idolaters; their religious faith and their name as worshipers of the living God they were to bear as a special honor. {CH 203.1}

A Sleeping Church – Sermon By Pastor Jeremiah Davis

Christ soon return, Seventhday Adventist

But instead of watching with Christ, they were burdened with sorrow, and fell asleep. Even the ardent Peter, who, only a few hours before, had declared that he would suffer and, if need be, die for his Lord, was asleep. At the most critical moment, when the Son of God was in need of their sympathy and heartfelt prayers, they were found asleep. They lost much by thus sleeping. Our Saviour designed to fortify them for the severe test of their faith to which they would soon be subjected. If they had spent that mournful period in watching with the dear Saviour, and in prayer to God, Peter would not have been left to his own feeble strength to deny his Lord in the time of trial. – {2T 204.3}

The Son of God went away the second time, and prayed, saying: “O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy will be done.” And again He came to His disciples and found them sleeping. Their eyes were heavy. By these sleeping disciples is represented a sleeping church, when the day of God’s visitation is nigh. It is a time of clouds and thick darkness, when to be found asleep is most perilous. – {2T 205.1} – 2T 204-205

 

Sodom is here

According to the Washington Post

Public support for gay marriage has hit a new high as Americans increasingly see homosexuality not as a choice but as a way some people are, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The poll shows that 58 percent of Americans now believe it should be legal for gay and lesbian couples to get married; 36 percent say it should be illegal. Public attitudes toward gay marriage are a mirror image of what they were a decade ago: in 2003, 37 percent favored gay nuptials, and 55 percent opposed them.
The Supreme Court takes up the issue of gay marriage next week, and nearly two-thirds of all Americans say the matter should be decided for all states on the basis of the U.S. Constitution, not with each state making its own laws.

So what’s the cause for the shift in the public’s attitude over the past ten years?

This is an age when corruption is teeming everywhere. The lust of the eye and corrupt passions are aroused by beholding and by reading. The heart is corrupted through the imagination. The mind takes pleasure in contemplating scenes which awaken the lower and baser passions. These vile images, seen through defiled imagination, corrupt the morals and prepare the deluded, infatuated beings to give loose rein to lustful passions. Then follow sins and crimes which drag beings formed in the image of God down to a level with the beasts, sinking them at last in perdition. [6] – {AH 408.1}

Remember that it is a biblical principle that by beholding, we become changed, see 2 Corinthians 3:18. Through the media, whether the Internet, TV, newspaper, etc. Babylon, the great, the mother of harlots has been working to corrupt the whole world.
“And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.” Revelation 18:2-3

Babylon (Roman Catholic Church and apostate Protestantism) has used religious systems, countries and the merchants, (the rich men, “the great men”) to corrupt society. So that the majority is now siding with her; but her cup is just about full. This is why the Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.” Revelation 18:4-6

From the pen of inspiration we read:

Before the destruction of Sodom, God sent a message to Lot, “Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” The same voice of warning was heard by the disciples of Christ before the destruction of Jerusalem: “When ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Luke 21:20, 21. They must not tarry to secure anything from their possessions, but must make the most of the opportunity to escape. – {PP 166.3}
There was a coming out, a decided separation from the wicked, an escape for life. So it was in the days of Noah; so with Lot; so with the disciples prior to the destruction of Jerusalem; and so it will be in the last days. Again the voice of God is heard in a message of warning, bidding His people separate themselves from the prevailing iniquity. – {PP 166.4}

The world without doubt, draws to an end.

christ soon return, Seventhday Adventist, Time of trouble

There is so much happening in the word today prophetically, that like Ridley, i must say The world without doubtthis I do believe, and therefore I say itdraws to an end. ” {GC 303.3}

“…Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” (Revelation 18:2)  God is allowing many things to come to light so that Babylon (Rome) can be exposed, because very soon we will have to make the ultimate decision, whether we will follow Christ, or Satan, Whether we will receive the seal of God or the mark of the beast.  Below is part of an online news article.

It is a week when the Catholic Church hoped to look forward, as the College of Cardinals prepares to elect a new pope.

But, instead the church finds itself confronting ghosts of the past.

A British cardinal has resigned amid allegations of inappropriate relationships with priests.

Italian papers are filled with reports of sexual escapades inside the Vatican itself.

And now word that a U.S. cardinal accused of hiding sexual abuse by priests will be among those choosing the new pope, which has many wondering if the Catholic Church is once again turning a blind eye to its own failings.

All this and more is happening in a religious institution, that sees itself as the moral authority on earth, as being infallible, as being Christ representative on earth.  Brothers and sisters, if you are a Catholic and you truly love the Lord, the Bible says:

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” (Revelation 18:4-5)

This scripture points forward to a time when the announcement of the fall of Babylon, as made by the second angel of Revelation 14 (verse 8), is to be repeated, with the additional mention of the corruptions which have been entering the various organizations that constitute Babylon, since that message was first given, in the summer of 1844. A terrible condition of the religious world is here described. With every rejection of truth the minds of the people will become darker, their hearts more stubborn, until they are entrenched in an infidel hardihood. In defiance of the warnings which God has given, they will continue to trample upon one of the precepts of the Decalogue, until they are led to persecute those who hold it sacred. Christ is set at nought in the contempt placed upon His word and His people. As the teachings of spiritualism are accepted by the churches, the restraint imposed upon the carnal heart is removed, and the profession of religion will become a cloak to conceal the basest iniquity. A belief in spiritual manifestations opens the door to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, and thus the influence of evil angels will be felt in the churches. – {GC 603.2}
Of Babylon, at the time brought to view in this prophecy, it is declared: “Her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:5. She has filled up the measure of her guilt, and destruction is about to fall upon her. But God still has a people in Babylon; and before the visitation of His judgments these faithful ones must be called out, that they partake not of her sins and “receive not of her plagues.” Hence the movement symbolized by the angel coming down from heaven, lightening the earth with his glory and crying mightily with a strong voice, announcing the sins of Babylon. In connection with his message the call is heard: “Come out of her, My people.” These announcements, uniting with the third angel’s message, constitute the final warning to be given to the inhabitants of the earth. – {GC 604.1} – GC 603-604

Christians awake, the end is near, “…the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis.”(Ed 179.5) “Christians should be preparing for what is soon to break upon the world as an overwhelming surprise, and this preparation they should make by diligently studying the word of God and striving to conform their lives to its precepts.” – {Mar 68.7} – Mar 68.1-7
