Our Commitment to the Three Angels Messages

By John Thiel, Audio: mp3

How close is it to the coming of Jesus? We have become vividly aware that we are indeed at the very last of the generation that is to see Jesus coming. All that Jesus foretold is culminating and I have a deep sense that during this year and the next, we will be meeting some very serious circumstances. We have been given the assistance of the angels but it is up to us whether we will actually be in tune with them. I would like to spend time with you this hour in considering our commitment to the three angels and their messages and that other angel of Revelation 18.

We are often fascinated in reference to angels, as our Scripture reading expressed – “Are they not ministering spirits?” Angels are actually ministering for us, especially those who are the heirs of salvation. They are “ministering spirits, sent forth to minister” to us. One aspect of their ministry is to communicate light from heaven to us. We see this in the words of the angel of Revelation 1:1 where the message was conveyed from Jesus via the angel to John the revelator and in Daniel 9:20-23 you have Gabriel speaking being sent from heaven to administer light to Daniel.

The Truth Hurts

Audio: mp3

The purpose of this study is that we will come away knowing the reason why truth hurts. I find it interesting that when the truth of the Bible comes to people, not everyone receives it with joy. Not everybody is happy to hear the truth as it is in Jesus.

If you reflect through history, the truth has caused a lot of problems. It’s caused a lot of fighting, persecution and killing. Even from the start, there was trouble between two brothers, Cain and Abel. Cain did not appreciate the truth or what his brother did. Abel’s work was righteous. The Bible tells us that is the reason why Cain killed his brother. People have often expressed that before the truth came along they actually had quite a nice life. They were happier, they enjoyed many more things and they had a lot more peace. Then when the truth came, they had struggles they never had before. They find out that they shouldn’t be doing this and they shouldn’t be doing that. There seem to be more restrictions than you can poke a stick. All these things burden the individual and they say, “Why, what’s all the go with the truth? I was better before the truth came along.” This is a Biblical fact that truth disturbs people. The truth is disturbing. Notice what the apostle has to say.

Romans 7:9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Before God’s commandments came along, before I had knowledge of right and wrong to the extent that God would have us know, my life was quite okay. I mean yes, there were troubles and I had difficulties, but all in all, it was okay.

Romans 7:9  …but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. 10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

This message is about Jesus coming to give eternal life. Sometimes we feel the only thing we get is death from hearing about this message of eternal life. “I feel condemned. I feel that I am a great, great sinner. I feel filthy and dirty. I feel like my habits are choking me to death and I can’t get out of them. I feel in bondage more than ever before since the truth came.” Read the rest of this entry

03 God Speaks Through Nature

By John Thiel, The Last Generation Conference, Audio: mp3

Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. 3 [There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

The Lord and I

By John Thiel

Psalm 16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.

In this study it is my purpose to bring everything that I have ever preached in the past down to a living companionship with God. The term I just expressed, everything I have ever preached, it is something I’ve appreciated from the book Ministry of Healing;

The mere hearing of sermons Sabbath after Sabbath, the reading of the Bible through and through, or the explanation of it verse by verse, will not benefit us or those who hear us, unless we bring the truths of the Bible into our individual experience. The understanding, the will, the affections, must be yielded to the control of the word of God. Then through the work of the Holy Spirit the precepts of the word will become the principles of the life. {MH 514.1}

This statement we must understand. As we hear the sermons and read the Bible, many people still do not find the true benefit of it all. . I’m hoping and praying the benefit of this will be reached out for by us individually as we are in the presence of God today. God is speaking as follows: Read the rest of this entry

Developing Interested Souls for Baptism

By John Thiel

This aspect of is now to develop the interested souls for baptism. We have learnt how to arouse their interest and that is to do with how to find them. Now that you found them, once you have captivated an interest, you then want to win them to a final decision. If you have captivated an interest they will say to you, I want more information, I want Bible study. When you have them at that position, now you have a prospective candidate for baptism. When a person asks for Bible studies, you have a positive candidate. Why do I say this? Bible study produces something.

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. Read the rest of this entry

God’s Way of Education

That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: Psalm 144:12.

The Bible in Education by A T Jones is a book about this worlds system of education that we have all been affected by. It all goes back to ancient Babylon and Greece.

True education is more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come. Page 13 Education. Read the rest of this entry

The Bible and Science

By John Thiel

We live in an enlightened age compared to the middle ages of superstition. There is great advance today – many blame retardation of knowledge upon religion and the bible – on the contrary – If these people of the dark ages had been permitted to read the bible, the darkness of those ages would have been illuminated by the bible.

Rightly Dividing the Word

God has given us scripture to prevent us being confounded.

Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

4:13 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:

4:14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Read the rest of this entry
