08. A Life of Gratitude

0808078

 Audio: mp3

The burden of despair rolls from the sick man’s soul; the peace of forgiveness rests upon his spirit, and shines out upon his countenance. His physical pain is gone, and his whole being is transformed. The helpless paralytic is healed! the guilty sinner is pardoned! {DA 268.3}

In simple faith he accepted the words of Jesus as the boon of new life. He urged no further request, but lay in blissful silence, too happy for words. {DA 268.4}

Are you able to appreciate this experience? What does it mean to you? Thy sins be forgiven thee. Therefore be of good cheer. This study is called A Life of Gratitude. With such a subject I could tell you a story of a man on death row, or I could tell you of a story of a man who was in the war and somebody else took his place and died in his stead. But I’m not going to. Read the rest of this entry

05. Christ Crucified Among You Part 2

 Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Study 5, Audio: mp3

Palms 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising. Thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down. and art acquainted [with] all my ways. 4 For [there is] not a word in my tongue. [but]. lo. O LORD. thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before and laid thine hand upon me. 6 [Such] knowledge [is] too wonderful for me; it is high. I cannot [attain] unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

10. As You Received So Walk in Him

As_You_Received_So_Walk_ye_in_Him

By John Thiel, Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Study 10, Audio: mp3

Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, [so] walk ye in him:
2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

We live in a very important time.

Zephaniah 2:1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;

Is that you and me? Are we desired for the truth we hold? Are we outcasts?

Zephaniah 2:2 Before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you.

The fierce anger of the Lord come upon you oh nation not desired.

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.

What an interesting statement. It may be you will be hid. We want to know that there is a way by which we maybe hid. We are to gather the children and elders and let the servants of God weep between the porch and the altar. That is note of serious connotations attached to it. The seriousness of this is contained in the back ground of the light that was given in 1888. We are to walk in the light of 1888. What was the light of 1888? The revelation of the righteousness of Christ, the sin pardoning redeemer. That was the light of 1888. 1888 was the beginning of the light of the angel that will lighten the whole earth. It is the present message that is already lightening the earth with its glory from 1888 onwards. It was the latter rain which led to the loud cry of the third angel which was to swell from then onwards. Read the rest of this entry

09. Meeting the Law’s Demands

As we open our heart to the message of Christ Our righteousness, there are some mysteries which unfold. Apostle Paul says he is the minister according to the dispensation of God.

Colossians 1:26 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Christ among you). 28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Here is this announcement of a mystery that the apostles and all other apostles thereafter are given the duty to convey – the mystery that has been hid from ages. It has been poorly understood throughout the ages but now is made manifest. A mystery is not understood as made manifest it is something that is hidden. But under the gospel presentation it is no longer a mystery it is something that is manifest. Read the rest of this entry

06. The Faith of Jesus

Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Why is the Sabbath day so special? It is written in Exodus 31.

Exodus 31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it [is] a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that I [am] the LORD that doth sanctify you.

In the Ten Commandments it is identified as the sabbath of the Lord thy God and this is a sign of a relationship because what does it say here? It is a sign between me and you. He is introducing a relationship concept. He wants you to know that I am the Lord that is at work for your sanctification. Who is this Lord that is saying I want a relationship with you which the sabbath is a sign of?

Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath. 

Who is the Lord that sanctifies us? That the Sabbath is a sign of? Jesus Christ. He said the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath. The Sabbath made for man, a sign and an integrated exercise of sanctification of which Jesus is the active agent to sanctify us and therefore he is the Lord of my life and the Lord of the Sabbath.

04. Christ Crucified Among You, Part 1

Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Study 4, Audio: mp3

Psalms 139:4 For [there is] not a word in my tongue, [but], lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 [Such] knowledge [is] too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou [art there]. 9 [If] I take the wings of the morning, [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

03. The Law Our School Master

By John Thiel, Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Study 3, Audio: mp3

We are to walk in the light that came down from heaven in 1888. To walk in the light of something that was addressed 120 years ago, it is a subject 120 years old. Why address the matter such a long time after? We have been made aware that the light of the Revelation 18 angel came back then and that was the beginning of the fourth angel and the beginning of the light that would swell into a loud cry. As we contemplate that reality, why has it taken 120 years?  To all human observation we have seen such little impact of that message in the ranks of the majority of Adventism. The Lord in his mercy according to TM 91-92 gave a most precious message to do what? To bring more prominently the Lord Jesus to us. This was written in 1895. Why was that written? Because we heard that in 1892 that the mark of the beast was established. Read the rest of this entry

Overview of 1888 (Introduction)

By John Thiel, Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Introduction, Audio: mp3

Jeremiah 33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.  15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.  16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this [is the name] wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
