Born and raised in Alaska, my mother was from the only Federally recognized Indian Reserve in Alaska – Annette Island Indian Reserve, town of Metlakatla. She met my dad while attending college in Sitka, Alaska. I have three older brothers and a younger sister and adopted younger brother. My parents were both religious. My dad travelled the world with his dad – a presbyterian minister in the military. My mother grew up going to Sunday school and church. Naturally, they brought us up in the church, morning devotions, attending church and Sunday school weekly – participating in vacation bible school, and various other church related activities. Both were Sunday-Keepers. I was water immersed baptized at about age 9. It was done because my brothers were being baptized and I was forced to do it. I didn’t understand baptism – but did what I was […]
Who is this ‘third person’ we’ve heard so much about, and can we find that phrase in the Bible?
The Bible does reveal that concept, but in other words. Jesus spoke in the ‘third person’ quite often. When He used the phrase, “son of man,” it was then that we can see an application to the concept. Notice, that in most of the 88 times the phrase “son of man” was employed by the prophets of […]
Remember, angel is only one of the ways used in the writings of EGW to refer to God’s agents. Go to the context of any section copied and pasted below to learn more.
He has sent forth His angels to minister to His church, and the gates of hell have not been able to prevail against His people. AA 11.2
Look upon the touching scene. Behold the Majesty of heaven surrounded by the Twelve whom He has chosen. He is about to set them apart for their work. By these feeble agencies, through His word and Spirit, He […]

Because of the Angels
Christ has a head – He is under the authority of His Father.
Man has a head – he is under the authority of Christ.
Woman has a head – she is under the authority of her husband.
Because of the angels.
Because the faithful angels didn’t know what had happened in the conflict over the begotten Son of God and the honored created son of God: Christ and Lucifer. They needed to understand what had happened and what the difference was between the God the Father and His Son, so God made Adam to represent Himself, while Eve, begotten from Adam’s own substance, represented the Son.
All of this, “because of the angels.”
God is leading His people to get to know Him as the Bible declares Him to be. Study here with Pastor Daniel Mesa as he considers hundreds of Bible texts concerning God, the God of the Bible.
NATURE OF GOD AND CHRIST IS EVERYTHING TO US
“The humanity of the Son of God is everything to us. It is the golden chain that binds our souls to Christ, and through Christ to God. This is to be our study… …the study of the incarnation of Christ is a fruitful field, which will repay the searcher who digs deep for hidden truth” 1SM 244.1
“As the life of Christ and the character of His mission are dwelt upon, rays of light will shine forth more distinctly at every attempt to discover truth. Each fresh search will reveal something more deeply interesting than has yet been unfolded. The subject is inexhaustible. The study of the incarnation of Christ, His atoning sacrifice and mediatorial work, will employ […]
Taken from the only time this quote was not included in a compilation:
“The world was made by him, “and without him was not anything made that was made.” If Christ made all things, he existed before all things. The words spoken in regard to this are so decisive that no one need be left in doubt. Christ was God essentially, and in the highest sense. He was with God from all eternity, God over all, blessed forevermore.” RH April 5, 1906, par. 6
Ephesians 3:9 and Hebrews 1:1-2 speak clearly that God the Father created all things through His Son. John 1:1–3 says that all things were created by Christ, without Him nothing was made.
Therefore, over all creation, Christ was God in essence, or essentially. As ruler of all because of creation, He was in the highest […]
Adam and Eve (Genesis 1-2)
When I first read the book entitled, “Jewels from Green Hell” I was deeply impressed with the history of a man who, living in the jungles of Guyana, wanted and prayed for light, so God sent him an angel. The two chapters (just over 15 minutes) that cover that story are included in this short reading;
The 74 references to Abraham in the New Testament alone! 80 references to Moses! 9 references to Adam, 27 references to Jacob, and 79 references to Israel!
If you claim Christianity, you might want to know that Christ quoted or referred to Genesis several times:
Matthew 11:23-24 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
Matthew 11:24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
(See Genesis 18-19)
Matthew 19:3-6 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, […]
Deuteronomy 11:14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
Job 29:23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.
Proverbs 16:15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; […]
Mr. O, I mentioned I would put a video together, but after starting to write out the notes, I found that writing would be a good way to go. I hope you don’t mind the change in what I said I would do. My comments are in bold:
Hello Pastor. I have some concerns regarding this video presentation and I am hoping you can help me understand. First of all, I agree with everything you have presented as far as the sources you have quoted. My concern is, I am afraid I am not understanding your interpretation of the material you have conveyed.
Thank you so much. If you could help, I would request that you go through the video again, pointing out precisely where I have misconstrued the words I […]
Principles of courtship from the Bible
Genesis 24:1 Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.
Genesis 24:2 And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that […]
This chapter starts out addressing “wisdom.” Notice how 1 Corinthians 1:24 and 30 address this issue saying that Christ is wisdom.
“Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:24
“Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom.” 1 Corinthians 1:30
Ellen White applies Proverbs 8:22-30 directly to Christ in Patriarchs and Prophets 34.1 by saying, “the Son of God declares concerning Himself…”
Proverbs 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
Out of the 85 translations, most, “bought” = 21, “buy” = 18 (Similar to Luke 2:34-35?).
Out of the 51 translations, most, “beginning” = 18, “firstfruits” = 11.
Out of […]
My Testimony and How God Has Led Me.
By Richard Story
The purpose of this testimony is not intended to be an all-inclusive autobiography. I’m trying to tell how I kept Jesus out of my heart, and He finally got me to listen to Him.
I was born in a Naval hospital, in Atlanta, Georgia, during a snow storm which is highly unusual for Georgia, even if it was December 12, 1944. I was 22 inches long, and weighed 6 lbs 12 oz. My initial size belied the fact that throughout my life I’ve been average height and definitely […]
Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge (Gr: prognosis, 1 of 2 uses) of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
Acts 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
Romans 8:29 […]
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy […]
