The Desire of Ages / Re: The Desire of Ages--26--At Capernaum
« Last post by Dorine on Today at 06:11:21 AM »
"He (Jesus) spoke as one who had a definite purpose to fulfill. He was bringing to view the realities of the eternal world. In every theme God was revealed. Jesus sought to break the spell of infatuation which keeps men absorbed in earthly things. He placed the things of this life in their true relation, as subordinate to those of eternal interest; but He did not ignore their importance. He taught that heaven and earth are linked together, and that a knowledge of divine truth prepares men better to perform the duties of everyday life. He spoke as one familiar with heaven, conscious of His relationship to God, yet recognizing His unity with every member of the human family.

May God help us to do the same. There are many distractions in life. They may be good in and of themselves but not when they come first before God. I thank Him for His example in showing us the order of their importance. I thank Him for being our link to heaven. We are so blessed in every way. May we show it in the way we think, speak and act. Make Jesus our first thoughts upon waking and the last thoughts before falling asleep and the center of all our comings and goings through out the day.


I was also touched this morning by this description of Jesus.

"His tender compassion fell with a touch of healing upon wary and troubled hearts. Even amid the turbulence of angry enemies He was surrounded with an atmosphere of peace. The beauty of His countenance, the loveliness of His character, above all, the love expressed in look and tone, drew to Him all who were not hardened in unbelief. Had it not been for the sweet, sympathetic spirit that shone out in every look and word, He would not have attracted the large congregations that he did."

Oh the dangers of unbelief.  Come into my heart this morning Lord Jesus. Cleanse it and renew a right spirit within me. Amen.

Hallelujah! Amen, Brother Beacon!! We can turn our eyes upon Jesus and find the healing experience of His character, which He promises to work out in us as a divine miracle--the miracle of grace that makes us partakers of the divine nature so we may escape the corruption that is in the world through lust.

It is a beautiful thought to reflect on what Jesus' countenance was like as He walked the earth--and to know that we also may have a beaming smile, a joyful heart, and a song on our lips! As we rejoice in all that Jesus is to us and invite others to get to know Him, they will be attracted to Him for they will behold Christ in us the hope of glory through the manifestation of all of the fruits of the Spirit without one missing!

"His tender compassion fell with a touch of healing upon weary and troubled hearts. Even amid the turbulence of angry enemies He was surrounded with an atmosphere of peace. The beauty of His countenance, the loveliness of His character, above all, the love expressed in look and tone, drew to Him all who were not hardened in unbelief. Had it not been for the sweet, sympathetic spirit that shone out in every look and word, He would not have attracted the large congregations that He did. The afflicted ones who came to Him felt that He linked His interest with theirs as a faithful and tender friend, and they desired to know more of the truths He taught. Heaven was brought near. They longed to abide in His presence, that the comfort of His love might be with them continually." {The Desire of Ages, page 254, paragraph 4}

May the comfort of Jesus' love be with us continually today as we see Him in His beauty by faith. Let us choose the experience of David all the days of our life, for this will be our experience also in eternity: "One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple" (Psalm 27:4).

When he went into the military, he found himself in a difficult situation. As he moves higher and higher, it gets more difficult to stay away from such things. There is a separation taking place. Let's pray that he will use his position to glorify God. Moses erred at the end of his life, but he repented. I don't know Chaplain Barry Black, but I am praying for him. He is in a powerful position to be used by God as we near the time when the Sabbath will be the last test for mankind.

Yes, Jim, one day very soon the world will wake up and understand they have a serious problem with Turkey. She cannot remain in NATO, but who is ready to say so?

Satan is so very clever!  Who would not be in favor of taking one day a week off? The "green sabbath" is a winner for almost everyone, especially those seeking the sunday. Is this not why God is punishing us with all of the disasters, we have desecrated the sunday?

"A perversion of right principles is a transgression of God's law. Those who in their actions pervert the grand principles of His Holy Law are under condemnation, for the righteousness of Christ cannot cover one unconfessed sin. The law has been lightly regarded. "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil." We must obey God's law, if we are loyal to Him and accepted by Him."

"The first step toward obedience is to examine ourselves in the light of the law, thus discovering the penalty of transgression. Those of God's people who do not purify their souls by coming into clearer and still clearer light are a reproach to His glorious cause. Too often those who should remain true and faithful to principle are obnoxious to God, because in His justice He cannot endure the sins that they cherish--sins that not only lead them into false paths but cause others also to be led astray."

It is an sobering thought to me that by my actions or by my thoughts, if not sanctified by the Holy Spirit, can cause Jesus soo much sadness and may result in myself and others losing out in the great gift of Eternal Life that Jesus has made possible through His death on the Cross of Calvary. I love the wonderful promises given to us as stated in the book " THOUGHTS FROM THE MOUNT OF BLESSING. " It would be great to read it often and remember that the one who promised it also said...All Power is given to me in Heaven and on Earth. Matthew 28:18

"If you will seek the Lord and be converted every day; if you will of your own spiritual choice be free and joyous in God; if with gladsome consent of heart to His gracious call you come wearing the yoke of Christ,—the yoke of obedience and service,—all your murmurings will be stilled, all your difficulties will be removed, all the perplexing problems that now confront you will be solved. {MB 101.3}"

Richard, thanks for posting this. I haven't been watching the news much lately but last I looked Erdogan was forcing the reelections of a mayor or governor (don't remember at the moment).  I think maybe there are elections this fall but it's hard to see anyone else being elected but him with the way he is handling things.

I'm so thankful that in the midst of all the warnings there is mercy and hope for those who cling to Jesus, and by beholding Him every day are protected from evil and changed into His image. We say it often. Do we really believe it? Sin is powerful but God's grace and mercy are many times more powerful to keep us from going astray.

Dorine, I love this and others who read it will find encouragement in it. Reminds me of the following...


Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

John Kerry Wants to Punish Those Who Mock Climate Change, Including Trump
[Excerpts]


Kerry said he was working with former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and others to develop a new international initiative to hold politicians accountable for undermining the fight against climate change.

The details of the new climate accountability initiative are still being worked out and could be announced within the next few weeks. But Kerry said it would include actions aimed at the 2020 election, which he called “a moment for people to be held to the test.”

More @: https://www.libertyheadlines.com/john-kerry-mock-climate-change/

He's following the pope's agenda.  One wonders if "saving the planet" from climate change will play into the passage of the Sunday law.  Since it will be a series of natural disasters that cause the demand for Sunday legislation, the secular world won't have a problem getting on board because they'll be blaming it on "climate crises (formerly "climate change," formerly "global warming).  Reducing carbon emissions one day a week won't faze them a bit.  Or, things could be so bad (almost seems that way from reading Great Controversy) that "climate change" may get lost sight of.

If You Are White, You Are a Racist!

COLLEGE PROF: ‘Whiteness is Terrorism’
[Excerpts]

 A Trinity College professor whose racially charged social media posts created an uproar in 2017 is once again facing a firestorm from alumni of the Hartford liberal arts school for tweeting “Whiteness is terrorism” on Easter and referring to Barack and Michelle Obama as “white kneegrows.”
Whiteness breeds terrorism, the exploitation of other people’s bodies and minds for profit,” Williams said. “It’s academic freedom. That’s the role of a professor to try to help students see their complicity and collusion with white racism.”
