My Testimony and How God Has Led Me – the Richard Story Testimony

 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 […]

The Foreknowledge of God

PDF Notes

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.

Melchisedec

PDF Notes

There are 11 uses in the KJV

Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

Notice, the Bible says he was the “king” and “the priest,” not the son of God, nor the spirit of God—and being a king and priest, he must have been a man. If, as the king of Salem (meaning peace), he brought “bread and wine” which were symbolic of the forthcoming life and death of the Son of God, could he not also be symbolic of […]

Christ’s Nature

PDF Notes

According to Christ in Mark 8:38, He was born into an “adulterous and sinful generation.” Paul said He was in the “likeness of sinful flesh” (Romans 8:3). “Verily he took not on him the nature of angels [pure and holy]; but he took on him the seed [sperm/nature] of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered […]

Justification

PDF Notes:

 

We cannot be saved by our works, yet we cannot be saved without them. The reason? The judgment to come (consider Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, 2 Corinthians 5:10).

“There are conditions to our receiving justification and sanctification, and the righteousness of Christ. I know your meaning, but you leave a wrong impression upon many minds. While good works will not save even one soul, yet it is impossible for even one soul to be saved without good works. 1SM 377.1 (letter to AT Jones)

Stand Up for Jesus – Christina Hilton

How do we receive light from God?

There are many ways, but one of the ways we receive light is through Bible study and prayer

Ps 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

What happens when we reject light?

Example: Saul

Multitude of the Philistines

Israel was afraid

Samuel sets a time

Saul waits, but gets impatient

1 Samuel 13:8-13 And he tarried seven days, according to the set time that Samuel had appointed : but Samuel came not to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him. [9] And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and […]

The Law and the Gospel

PDF Notes

Thank you Wally Ziembicki.

“The Law and The Gospel”

1. Christ’s favorite theme was the paternal tenderness and abundant grace of God; He dwelt much upon the holiness of His character and His law; He presented Himself to the people as the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Let these be the themes of Christ’s ministers. Present the truth as it is in Jesus. Make plain the requirements of the law and the gospel. Tell the people of Christ’s life of self-denial and sacrifice; of His humiliation and death; of His resurrection and ascension; of […]

To the Next US President

PDF Notes

I am neither a political activist nor an enthusiast, but I am a Bible prophecy student—therefore interested in the goings on of the governments of the world. Today I speak to the next United States President. After all, the nations are prepping to fulfill the prophecy of the second half of Revelation 13, verses 11-18!

Many kings / leaders in the Bible liked God’s people:

  • Potiphar didn’t believe his wife over Joseph, else Joseph would have been slain – Genesis 39
      • Civil power = Potiphar (captain of the guard/army […]

Gideon had just seen the “angel of the LORD…”

Judg. 6:26 And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove […]
