09 Come Out from Among Them

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge series, mp3

Scripture reading: Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Everything around us in the times of our generation, reminds us that we are living in perilous times, and we have to meet challenges, as God’s children and as those who desire to be God’s children, that are very, very magnified in their implications upon us. One of the most frightening declarations of Jesus is the one above. There is such a possibility that the very people that are God’s elect could be deceived in this time, because there are false Christs and false prophets that teach doctrines that have to be so close to the truth that even the elect would have difficulty to be able to discern whether that message is really the truth that is going to save them.

08 The Fashions of the World

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Challenge series, mp3

Scripture reading: 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

To be a Christian, a true Christian, in this period of time is a challenge indeed. The challenge is that there needs to be a complete and absolute surrender to everything that God has said, whether we eat, or drink, or whatsoever do – things which are very much part of our sense of satisfaction, indulgence, and pleasure. When you eat, or when you drink, when you dress – these are all very, very personal and individual attachments. And when God reveals to us that certain things that we do are not part of His desire for us, we are challenged whether we will let them go. The challenge is met with the sense of His great love. If I love Him I will sacrifice everything for Him, as He has loved us so much, and sacrificed so much for us. So may God help us as we venture into this topic of separation from the world. We will enlarge what this means in reference to its customs, its practices, and its ways, so that we may stand to God’s glory in a world that glories in its practices. Read the rest of this entry

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.

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
