We have a problem with misapplying scripture. This problem is not a recent problem it has been happening for years. Did the Jewish nation misapply scripture? Did it matter if it did or not? It makes a difference to how and when we apply the words of God. To apply the words of God at the right time is present truth. Noah preached present truth to avoid the worldwide flood of water. We are not calling people to enter into a wooden ark because it is not present truth for us but as in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days of the Son of man, in that people are misapplying the prophetic declarations of God’s word. We have a problem today with the wheat and tares.
The Bible clearly says let the wheat and tares grow together until the harvest. Misapplying the prophecies causes us to consider the harvest as a future event. In other words, we cannot start being dogmatic about the truth because the wheat and tares, the false and true have to be together. It is prophesied. People believe the wheat and tares have to stay together because it says let them grow together, do not start pulling them apart. What did the Lord say to those who wanted to come and pull them out? He said do not do it lest the wrong people are pulled out. People say the wheat and tares must grow together because the harvest is at the end of the world when Jesus comes so let’s get cosy with each other and do not worry about it.

Jesus had just given the parable of the wheat and the tares and the disciples asked a question:
Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Here is a challenging call. Who hath ears to hear let him hear. When is the harvest? Jesus said the harvest is the end of the world. What is he talking about? The majority of Seventh Day Adventists believe the harvest is when Jesus comes but true Adventist doctrine highlights something else. Daniel 8 identifies the end of the world: Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
We are before the God of the universe.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Read the rest of this entry

Scripture reading: Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, [and] over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous [are] thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true [are] thy ways, thou King of saints. 4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for [thou] only [art] holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
This is our last study in this series on Relationships in the Last Days. We are launching out into the year 2009. As we launch out into this New Year, what are we to expect? and how are we going to meet it? Let us reflect now upon the meditations we have had through this conference.
When sin came onto the planet, what did God, He who orchestrates all relationships, introduce into the relationship between man and Satan?
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Read the rest of this entry
God has ordained that the messages of his word are to give us salvation personally and across the whole church. His word is to purify the church. We are living in these last days and we need to be aware of the time we’re living in. We need to understand the light and the day star prophecy so we can go through circumstances and experiences so we’re not thrown off our feet and left too surprised.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
