Is Jesus God Almighty?

Is Jesus Almighty God?

A question I’ve received often by many sincere, truth-seeking individuals is: Is Jesus the Almighty God spoken of in the Bible? The short answer, I tell them, is no. Of course, there are some difficult passages with which to wrestle, so in this brief article, I intend to tackle this matter and, hopefully, provide the reader a definitive answer that is easily understood and easy to explain. However, to answer this question with biblical soundness, we must answer a couple of other questions, first. So, let’s begin this study in God’s word by asking what is probably the simplest question […]

The Hebrew and Greek words “pestilence,” in their first uses, are found and considered below:

(Link for “Be Anxious for Nothing.”)

Be Anxious for Nothing

PDF Notes

The words in  bold (other than the Bible verses) are the Greek word similar to our word anxious, or worry.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father […]

Don’t Forget: What is Essential for Us to Remember – Christina Hilton

This school report was done by Christina Hilton based on the video at the bottom of this article:

According to the Bible we all have a spirit and God also has a Spirit, which we most often call the Holy Spirit. We are made in God’s image, but most people would say that our spirit and God’s Spirit are completely different. When our spirit leaves us, we are dead Ecclesiastes 9:6. Originally, when God created man, He breathed into Adam’s nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. A body plus the breath equals a living soul, if our breath or spirit leaves us, we are just a dead body and that breath (spirit) goes back to God. Is God different? Can He separate from His Spirit? When Jesus […]

Born Sinful

PDF Notes

General Quotes:

As children of the first Adam, we partake of the dying nature of Adam. But through the imparted life of Christ, man has been given opportunity to win back again the lost gift of life, and to stand in his original position before God, a partaker of the divine nature. “As many as received him,” writes John, “to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God […]

Heavenly Intelligences

PDF Notes

Over every man good and evil angels strive. It is the man himself who determines which shall win. I call upon the ministers of Christ to press home upon the understanding of all who come within the reach of their voice, the truth of the ministration of angels. Do not indulge in fanciful speculations. The written Word is our only safety. We must pray as did Daniel, that we may be guarded by heavenly intelligences.—Letter 201, 1899. 1SM 158.1

Divine ministration is needed to give power and efficiency to the church in this world. […]

Two Great Powers

PDF Notes

When the soul surrenders itself to Christ, a new power takes possession of the new heart. A change is wrought which man can never accomplish for himself. It is a supernatural work, bringing a supernatural element into human nature. The soul that is yielded to Christ becomes His own fortress, which He holds in a revolted world, and He intends that no authority shall be known in it but His own. A soul thus kept in possession by the heavenly agencies is impregnable to the assaults of Satan. But unless we do yield ourselves to […]

Power or Control Over Minds

PDF notes

It is expressly stated that Satan works in the children of disobedience, not merely having access to their minds, but working through their influence, conscious and unconscious, to draw others into the same disobedience. If evil angels have such power over the children of men in their disobedience, how much greater power the good angels have over those who are striving to be obedient. When we put our trust in Jesus Christ, working obedience unto righteousness, angels of God work in our hearts unto righteousness.…  1SM 94.1

Mystery of Godliness – S.N. Haskell

S. N. HASKELL, Bible Training School, February 1919.

The word “mystery” occurs twenty-seven times in the Bible. It is derived from a Greek term signifying, “What is known only by the initiated.” The apostle says, “Great is the mystery of godliness;” then he explains the term by saying, “God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Tim. 3:16.

If the apostle had said, “Great is the mystery of God,” all at once would have said, “Yes we know that; but it is GODLINESS that is the mystery. It is God manifest in the flesh.” It is justification in the spirit. Such was the life of our […]
