God’s Dealing with the Divorced

By John Thiel, mp3, pdf

Scripture reading: Matthew 12:7 But if ye had known what [this] meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

A Foundation Already Laid

Our purpose as a people is to stand true to the truths once unfolded to the Advent people. What we want to stand by and uphold is contained in the following words:

The enemy is seeking to divert the minds of our brethren and sisters from the work of preparing a people to stand in these last days. His sophistries are designed to lead minds away from the perils and duties of the hour. They estimate as nothing the light that Christ came from heaven to give to John for His people. They teach that the scenes just before us are not of sufficient importance to receive special attention. They make of no effect the truth of heavenly origin and rob the people of God of their past experience, giving them instead a false science. {8T 296.2} Read the rest of this entry

I Change Not

By John Thiel, mp3, pdf

Scripture reading: Malachi 3:6 For I [am] the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

We want to explore and meditate and contemplate the consequences of our commitment and our relationship with God, and the condition with which we are surrounded at this present time that prompt our great need to respond to Him.

We live today in a time of religious insecurity. There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number. There is a variety of different Christian teachings around us, virgins without number. And when God says, My dove, my undefiled is but one; it is a difficulty thing in today’s atmosphere to really get our minds absolutely clear. There are churches that surround us, authorities that are claiming to be God’s people and that are making people feel responsible to submit to their doctrines. Even in our relationship with individuals around us we have insecurity. People are changing, changing for the worse all around us. What was once a law has been changed today into a different law. There is a critical research at this moment in regards to the law on same sex marriages. There used to be a firm decision in the past on this subject; but today they are changing. This is just an extreme case, but there are so many areas of our life that have been placed into a state on insecurity because people and situations change; and we need a security, something that doesn’t change, something that gives us an assurance that if I am going to cling to that, it is not going to leave me high and dry, but will sustain me for my intelligent mind that has been given to me of God, to be able to rest itself and know that this is a firm platform, that this is secure, and I am not in a state of flux anymore.

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.
