Greetings to all students of the Sabbath School in fellowship with Pilgrims of the Seventh-day Adventist Message.

As we edge ever closer to the day in which we will be forced to answer for our faith in the courts of the land in which we live, we need to understand the evidences of our faith.

“I have been shown that many who profess to have a knowledge of present truth know not what they believe. They do not understand the evidences of their faith. They have no just appreciation of the work for the present time. When the time of trial shall come, there are men now preaching to others who will find, upon examining the positions they hold, that there are many things for which they can give no satisfactory reason. Until thus tested they knew not their great ignorance. And there are many in the church who take it for granted that they understand what they believe; but, until controversy arises, they do not know their own weakness. When separated from those of like faith and compelled to stand singly and alone to explain their belief, they will be surprised to see how confused are their ideas of what they had accepted as truth.” –Testimonies for the Church Vol. 5, p. 707.

06 Eating and Drinking to the Glory of God

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge series, mp3

When it comes to our diet and our ways of eating and drinking we are coming to a sensitive subject. Many times our diet and drinking habits are very much attached to us, and when we come across certain subjects that are very attached to us and we discover that some of these things are different to what we are doing, we become distressed and think that maybe the person who is preaching is putting his own opinion across. This is what I want to really nail in a sure place. We are seeking the glory of God; this is what we are seeking. To seek God’s glory is often that the glory of man is laid in the dust.

05 Are We Saved By Works?

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge series, mp3

Scripture reading: Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

The Bible Answers to Grief

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

Scripture reading: Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

We have a need to be acquainted with certain traits of character which it is right for the Christian to possess, and we now want to begin our meditation by focusing on the perfect pattern for our character development.

Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? Read the rest of this entry

The Ongoing Assurance of Justification

By John Thiel

mp3

Scripture Reading: Hebrews 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

OUR TRUE CONDITION

Our meditation is based upon a most remarkable comfort and assurance. The human dilemma in which we all are involved in, is ignorance of their true condition. Read the rest of this entry

Doctrines of Devils

mp3

Scripture Reading: Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Will we have the wedding garment on, which means what we read in Ephesians is our Scripture reading? Under the ministry of God’s appointment in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God we are to reach unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

A Personal Refuge for the Meek

By Victor Bireaud, mp3

Scripture Reading: Psalm 46:1 God [is] our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Welcome all loved and blessed, welcome sweet scenes of rest, welcome my Saviour’s breast. Jesus is mine!

“Welcome o loved and blessed, welcome sweet scenes of rest, welcome my saviours breast, Jesus is mine!”

Isn’t this a beautiful introduction to our message as we are facing the difficulties of the last days and preparing to enter into the sweet scenes of rest of the eternal abode? It really makes my heart abound with joy to think of this statement; Jesus is mine. Read the rest of this entry

The Truth About Armageddon

By John Thiel mp3

Scripture Reading 1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

The counsel of Apostle Paul to Timothy is a counsel we all need to take heed of.

That Scripture tells us something about the importance of doctrine. What is it? It says in taking heed to the doctrine and continue in it thou shalt save thyself; and all those that hear thee. How important is doctrine? It has to do with your and my salvation.

In a time when doctrine, teachings of the Bible, are in total confusion, this Scripture tells us we had better make sure that the doctrine we have is correct or we cannot be saved. Read the rest of this entry

06 An Active Living Helper

By John Thiel, Preparation for the Close of Probation Conference, Study 6, Audio: mp3

We have received much from God’s word to help us understand what this preparation for the close of probation really means. Jesus and the angels and the Father in heaven are active in trying to bring us to this. What we want to do now is to examine more closely the living helpfulness that is found in Jesus Christ, our active, living Helper. We have gained the understanding from the following quote that,

[Jesus] was to stand between the sinner and the penalty of sin; yet few would receive Him as the Son of God. He would leave His high position as the Majesty of heaven, appear upon earth and humble Himself as a man, and by His own experience become acquainted with the sorrows, and temptations which man would have to endure. All this would be necessary in order that He might be able to succor them that should be tempted. {AG 345.2} Read the rest of this entry

05 Reaching for Perfection

By John Thiel, Preparation for the Close of Probation Conference, Study 5, Audio: mp3

Probation is a period of time in which we are to be sanctified, rendered holy and without fault before God.  Jesus is at work to achieve that. We are to engage and participate with Him in that. That probation time is very, very close to coming to its completion. It is just like in the days of Noah, the people saw the animals coming into the ark; they could see that the door was about to close. For seven days those animals came. Then, after those seven days, if they would have listened and noticed the signs that probation was closing for them, they would have gone in the ark. But no, they were careless about it, they were scoffing. Read the rest of this entry
