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 […]

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.

1st:

We cannot define or understand the Holy Spirit beyond what inspiration says.

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?

Angels Ascending and Descending

PDF Notes

Based on Genesis 28 and John 1, the following quotes are quite interesting:

      • Genesis 28:10 Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
      • Genesis 28:11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
      • Genesis 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and […]

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 […]

Saturday or Sunday – Does it Matter?

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 […]

Christ was Inaugurated:

Acts 10:37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

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 […]

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:

Christ’s Pre-existence

PDF here

 

Proverbs 8:22-30 is used by many to show that the Son of God (Christ) was brought forth from the Father before anything was created. From the period of dateless ages that Christ was brought forth, there has never been a time where He was not in close fellowship with His Father. Both 1 Corinthians 1:24, 30 are used to show that Christ was made unto us wisdom.

Jesus referred to Himself as the Light of the world in John 8:12, 9:5, and John 12:46… but He also said:

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:44-45 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45
