Another Probation

PDF Notes

Here the mysterious cup trembled in His hand. Here the destiny of a lost world was hanging in the balance. Should He wipe the blood drops from His brow, and root from His soul the guilt of a perishing world, which was placing Him, all innocent, all undeserving, under the penalty of a just law? Should He refuse to become man’s substitute and surety? refuse to give him another trial, another probation? Ms42-1897.7

Separation from His Father, the punishment for transgression and sin, was to fall upon Him in order to magnify God’s law and testify […]

Angels Studies with Daniel Mesa

Here are a few studies on the angels, and there may be more to come. =)

“In the Word of God are represented two contending parties that influence and control human agencies in our world. Constantly these parties are working with every human being. Those who are under God’s control and who are influenced by the heavenly angels will be able to discern the crafty workings of the unseen powers of darkness. Those who desire to be in harmony with the heavenly agencies should be intensely in earnest to do God’s will. They must give no place whatever to Satan and his angels.” 18LtMs, Ms 95, 1903, par. 9

“He That is in You” by Christina Hilton, 16 Years of Age

Download PDF

(I asked Christina if I could share this paper, which she had written for a high-school homework assignment… praise God. =)

Can we overcome sin and, if we can, how? Revelation chapters two, three, and twenty-one all say “To him that overcometh”… and go on to describe the rewards of the overcomer. Why would it say that if overcoming is impossible? How can we overcome? The answer is in 1 John 4:4 which says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is […]

An Open Letter to Seventh-day Adventist Pastors

PDF Notes

The reader will find below a numbered series of thoughts that were put together by a currently employed Seventh-day Adventist pastor in an effort to establish the doctrine of the trinity using mostly Ellen White’s writings. These thoughts came to me in the order following, and were originally numbered as they are. I’ve added responses in blue considering the context of each passage with additional Bible verses.

50 Bible Questions About the Trinity

PDF notes

  1. Where are the words ‘trinity,’ triune,’ triunity,’ or the like in the Bible?
  2. Can we find  ‘God the Son’ in the Bible?
  3. Can we find  ‘God the Spirit’ in the Bible?
  4. Where is the term ‘co-eternal’ in the Bible?
  5. Where is the term ‘co-equal’ in the Bible?
  6. If the salient words or phrases of the trinity are not found in the Bible, where did this idea come from?
  7. In an Old Testament prophecy of Jesus Christ in the Bible, when it refers to the “counsel of peace” which is “between them both,” who are the both? If it was God the Father and His Son, where was the Spirit?

The Fraudhead

PDF notes

THE PROBLEMS:

The “counsel of peace” was between them both, which refers to the Father and His Son, as it reads in Zechariah 6:13 (see also Patriarchs and Prophets 34.1, and The Great Controversy 493.1). The enemy, satan, wanted to be “like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:14). He wanted to be as the “Son of God” who had been involved in the plans of the creation of man (see Hebrews 1:1-2, and Ephesians 3:9). 

The enemy, as a created son of God, was not allowed into the counsel of peace between the Father and […]

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 that […]

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 manifestations […]

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 }

God the Father, 14

John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

      • Question: If the Father sealed the Son, who seals us?

1 Corinthians 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

    Daniel 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

    • Question: How could the heathen king had known about God having a Son except the faithful Hebrews would have told him the truth about that fact? (As a side note, this chapter is parallel with the end time chapter of Revelation 13:11-18.)

    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 […]
