Saturday or Sunday – Does it Matter?

PDF here

With God the Father as Creator through His Son, look at the first gift of time God gave to man.

Saturday, seventh day of the week; different theories explain name, including that it comes from the Latin Saturni dies, or day of the god Saturn, and that it was named Saturn’s-day by Babylonians after Saturn, one of the 5 planetary bodies known to them; Jewish Sabbath, or holy day; (Compton’s Interactive Encyclopedia).

Friday, sixth day of the week; name derived from Frigg’s-day; Frigg (or Freya), the wife of the god […]

Allos in the New Testament

PDF here

160 times in 141 verses the word “allos” is used in the Greek New Testament. BUT, because most don’t speak Greek, we’ll use the English translations. =)

Why? Because we are at the Passover time. This is what Christ was speaking of 2,000 years ago…

The verse in question that uses the word allos is John 14:16,I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.” Believers in the one true God of the Bible (in light of John 17:3) believe […]

Does God Destroy?

INTRODUCTION

“God has given to men a declaration of His character and of His method of dealing with sin. “The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty;” Exodus 34:6, 7. “All the wicked will He destroy.” “The transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.” Psa. 145:20; 37:38. The power and authority of the divine government will be employed to put down rebellion; yet all the […]

Christ Formed Within, by Andrew White

Hello Again,

After finding that quote last night, “Those who do the words of Christ will perfect a Christian character, because Christ’s will is their will. Thus is Christ formed within, the hope of glory. { PH028 8.2 }” I did a search on “Christ formed within” which yielded 51 hits. Here are some of the highlights I found.

The hidden wisdom, which is Christ formed within, the hope of glory, is a wisdom high as heaven. ( The Review and Herald, July 18, 1899). { 6BC 1114.1 }

We want Christ formed within, the hope of glory. { GH December 1, 1899, par. 2 }

Holy Angels in the Plan of Redemption

Angels can be Holy (though not necessarily)

Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Mark 8:38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall […]

“We need to understand better than we do the mission of the angels. It would be well to remember that every true child of GOD has the co-operation of Heavenly beings. Invisible armies of light and power attend the meek and lowly ones who believe and claim the promises of GOD.” AA 154.2

The Biblical LGBT

 

PDF Notes

 

“Let God Be True, But Every Man a Liar.”

Romans 3:4

  • Romans 3:1-7 – our unrighteousness is always unrighteous
    • 1Kings 8:6 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, into the oracle of the house, to the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims.

Let’s realize that God’s truth has been attacked in this world. Untruth and unrighteousness does not commend the righteousness of God, so therefore, God is calling us to know and practice the Biblical truth. The LGBT community has a lot of focus at this point in history, but this is only one small part of a […]

Justification Retained

But while God can be just, and yet justify the sinner through the merits of Christ, no man can cover his soul with the garments of Christ’s righteousness while practicing known sins or neglecting known duties. God requires the entire surrender of the heart, before justification can take place; and in order for man to retain justification, there must be continual obedience, through active, living faith that works by love and purifies the soul.  {FW 100.1}

Genuine faith will be manifested in good works; for good works are the fruits of faith. As God works in the heart, and man surrenders his will to God, and cooperates with God, he works out in the life what God works in by the Holy Spirit, and there is harmony between the purpose of the heart and the practice of […]

1 Timothy 4

Hello ______________________,

Thank you for asking about 1 Timothy 4:4-5.
Here are a few thoughts that I hope will be helpful:
1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats (the word “meats” doesn’t necessitate flesh food. It many times means food in general. Notice these verses which DO use the word “flesh” that is eaten, “Romans 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. 1Corinthians 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.”), which God hath created to be received (with this clarification, WHICH God has created to be received, we can conclude that there are some foods which God has NOT created […]

Remittance of Sins

Question for you: obviously we know only God can forgive sins….so how then do you explain John 20:23 to say, a Catholic, who regularly goes to a priest for forgiveness?

Hello ___________,

The question is good. Here are a few thoughts:

When looking at similar concepts, we must look at Matthew 16:18-23. Christ was saying that Peter was Petros, while He Himself is Petra. Two different words with two different meanings. Peter, or Petros, means a piece of, or a fragment of a rock. Rock, or Petra, means not a piece, but the rock itself. Then He states what sounds like whatever Peter does and says, God obeys and does as well. The “keys of the Kingdom of Heaven” does not mean total access to anything at any time. This is not what was being said. For […]
