6. The Faith of Jesus

By John Thiel, Walking in the Light of 1888 Conference, Study 6, mp3

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.

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

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.
