A Brand Plucked Out of the Fire

By John Thiel, mp3 

Scripture Reading: Zechariah 3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. 2 And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: [is] not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

Neither Male nor Female in the Love of God

By John Thiel, mp3

Scripture reading: 2 Corinthians 5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more. 17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Love-Centred Obedience

By John Thiel, mp3

Scripture reading: Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

It makes every difference how we do service for God. The boy who drudges through his lessons because he must learn will never become a real student. The man who claims to keep the commandments of God because he thinks he must do it will never enter into the enjoyment of obedience. {TMK 118.3} Read the rest of this entry

6. 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.

5. 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.

It appears that we are upholding works. That we want to be saved by the works of keeping the Sabbath correctly. But this is not so. Read the rest of this entry

4. Restoration of the Sabbath Glory

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge Series, mp3

Scripture reading: Isaiah 56:1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation [is] near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. 2 Blessed [is] the man [that] doeth this, and the son of man [that] layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

Transfer of Theory into Practice

By John Thiel, mp3

Scripture reading: Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

We have already made experiences with the Lord. We have been washed from sin; that is why we have commenced our walk with Him. But we still need to understand more of His word in the process of sanctification and character building. This is one of the difficulties that even a born again Christian is challenged with. How to continue to gain practical help from the reading of God’s word? How to transfer the words on the page to our living experience? You know what it is like, I’m sure many times we have gone through experiences of having been informed, having gone through school; we have received knowledge intellectually, but when it comes to the doing of it, we still say, But how? We have information, but how to put it into practice is the question. Read the rest of this entry

Preparing Our Social Character

The Bible Answers to Grief

By John Thiel, 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.

The Lion and the Lamb


By Victor Bireaud, mp3

Scripture reading: John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

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
