To the Law and to the Testimony!

“If they do not speak according to this word, there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20

Devoted to uplifting God’s character by presenting the Scriptural view of Bible prophecy and God’s Law.

Isaiah 8 tells of a great confederacy of nations and warns God’s people not to join with them nor be afraid of the things they fear. Instead, we are told to “Sanctify the Lord of hosts Himself,” and let Him be our only fear and dread. And He gives this advice to us: Compare their doctrine against My Law and the testimony of the prophetic books of Scripture. A thorough knowledge of Scripture is the best defense we will have against the errors of these days.

God wants to return us to His Law and seal it deep into our hearts. At every other true Spiritual revival in history He has done this same work. (2 Chronicles 29-30, 2 Chronicles 34, Nehemiah 8) He has led the people back to Him, repaired the understanding of His Law, restored His worship and renewed His covenant with a remnant of true believers. This is the same revival that He would like to do in us today.

crossroads_sign_clip_art_16987Today we are at a crossroads. And God’s advice to us is to:

    • Turn to Him with all our hearts,
    • Seek understanding of His Law as a defense against lies,
    • Look to the prophetic books to explain what is going on in the world,
    • Cast away our idols,
    • Restore His true worship, and
    • Seal His name in our foreheads so that in the coming controversy there can be no question that our allegiance is to God.

  1. Please tell me what church you’re affiliated with and your relationship with the SDA church.

    • Hi George. The only formal church affiliation I have ever had has been a member in good standing with the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) church. I have never been involved in any offshoot movements or other denominations. I am not interested in bashing the SDA church in any way, speaking against it or shedding doubt on its teachings. Overall I believe the SDA church was formed by God’s Spirit, grown by His power, and is still being led by His hand. I have no desire to murmur against the Lord’s anointed. That being said, I will follow God above men. Where He has shown me truth, I will follow. This sets me apart from the mainstream church in many ways.
       

      As Jehovah Elohim has given me a growing understanding of truth and a beautiful cohesive view of Christ throughout the Bible, He has called me to share what He has shown me. I do see some inconsistencies in traditional SDA “teachings” though not with their doctrinal pillars. My growth has revealed some errors in Mrs. White’s statements regarding Bible prophecy but I still consider her to be led by the Holy Spirit and an excellent source of counsel for character development. She herself told us that “truth can afford to be fair. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation.” This means that we must be willing to grow into a greater knowledge of truth and a closer relationship with our Saviour. And once I understand Scripture on a topic, then look to her writings, I find confirmation and often clarification of the truth. This does not always agree with those who have formed their doctrines simply by what they think her writings say about the Bible.
       

      As the shaking in the church continues to swell, God will shake out that which is not firmly grounded in faith and truth. No matter by which name we call ourselves, let us strive to be a people whose faith in Jehovah cannot be shaken.
       

      “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.” (Hebrews 12:28)

    A note about barley, Spring 2019: The Biblical New Year for 2019 was on Monday May 6.

    On April 17, 2019 the barley was ripening, some was still in flower and some was still grass.

     

     

    But on Thursday May 23, 3 days before the wave sheaf, the heads were full and the field was almost ready for the harvest.
