What is wrong here? It is too late in the day to not understand what is wrong.

Revelation 18:
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.


I perceive that the "judgment" described in Rev. 18:5-8 is the executive judgment, or the carrying out of God's divine justice defined in:

Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation...

True Believers have experienced the work of their divine Intercessor and Advocate, but during THIS judgment there is no Advocate; no Intercessor, for the sinner, who may well at that time cry out, The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. Jeremiah 8:20 . True Believers, made worthy by becoming one through Christ with the Godhead in righteousness, have no sin to be "covered" by an Intercessor; that work is past. It is their privilege now to stand on the walls of the New Jerusalem as God's trophy's, His witnesses, observe both the justice and the mercy of God in the final and total destruction of the wicked by the lake of fire. Though His judgment is poured out without mixture, destroying the finally impenitent, His justice AND mercy stand fully vindicated. Mercy toward the impenitent that they not live for eternity as sinners in the presence of God, who is consuming fire. They could not stand His pure righteousness, as it would be the worst and purest torture.

Those who took full advantage of their Advocate and Intercessor during their time of earthly probation in maintaining their justification by the blood of Christ administered in their behalf, His divine life has been wrought out in their lives [ The Signs of the Times June 17, 1903 paragraph 12 ]; thus, they stand in their lot at the close of The Great Controversy:


The great controversy is ended. Sin and sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through the vast creation. From Him who created all, flow life and light and gladness, throughout the realms of illimitable space. From the minutest atom to the greatest world, all things, animate and inanimate, in their unshadowed beauty and perfect joy, declare that God is love.

It is by continual surrender of the will, by continual obedience, that the blessing of justification is retained. True Revival 36


Nahum 1:
6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
9 What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.


The true people of God, who have the spirit of the work of the Lord and the salvation of souls at heart, will ever view sin in its real, sinful character. They will always be on the side of faithful and plain dealing with sins which easily beset the people of God. Especially in the closing work for the church, in the sealing time of the one hundred and forty-four thousand, who are to stand without fault before the throne of God, will they feel most deeply the wrongs of God's professed people. This is forcibly set forth by the prophet's illustration of the last work under the figure of the men, each having a slaughter weapon in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side. “And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.”
The Review and Herald September 23, 1873 paragraph 4

Who are standing in the counsel of God at this time? Is it those who virtually excuse wrongs among the professed people of God, and murmur in their hearts, if not openly, against those who would reprove sin? Is it those who take their stand against them, and sympathize with those who commit wrong? No, indeed! These, unless they repent, and leave the work of Satan in oppressing those who have the burden of the work, and holding up the hands of sinners in Zion, will never receive the mark of God's sealing approval. They will fall in the general destruction of all the wicked, represented by the five men bearing slaughter weapons. Mark this point with care: Those who receive the pure mark of truth, wrought in them by the power of the Holy Ghost, represented by a mark by the man in linen, are those “that sigh and cry for all the abominations that are done” in the church. Their love for purity and the honor and glory of God is such, and they have so clear a view of the exceeding sinfulness of sin, that they are represented as being in an agony, even sighing and crying. 
The Review and Herald September 23, 1873 paragraph 5


Amen!!

Amen, Brother Glen. Jesus does not leave our filthy garments on. Filthy garments represent a filthy heart and sin. When we truly repent of our sins and forsake them, then He places His garments upon us. He fills us with the Holy Spirit and we manifest each one of the fruits of the Spirit.

Doug Batchelor is speaking this morning.  The livestream is not working very well for me. Maybe too many trying to watch?

How are we covered with His righteousness? Does He put it on us over our filthy clothes, or are we changed first? Does He cleanse the heart from sin then give us His righteousness? Is their a change in character when we receive His righteousness? If so, our people need to be taught it. Many think that His righteousness will cover our unforsaken and unrepented sins.

Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Daniel and the Second Coming of Jesus

Though many Jews in the time of Jesus expected the Messiah to overthrow the Romans and establish Israel as the most powerful nation of all, that’s not what the advents of Jesus, either the first or second, were to be about. Instead, God had something so much bigger in store for His faithful people than just a rearrangement of the old sinful and fallen world.

Amen!  He came to this Earth to recreate fallen man in His image and to establish a people who would vindicate His law and establish a solid foundation that would never allow sin to surface for eternity!


Perhaps nothing else in the Old Testament reveals as clearly as does Daniel 2 the truth that the new world does not grow out of the old one, but instead is a new and radically different creation.

Daniel 2 shows the rise and fall of four great world empires — Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece, and then finally Rome, which then breaks up into the nations of modern Europe. However, the statue that Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream (symbolizing the succession of these four major world powers) ends in a spectacular way that shows the great disconnect between this world and one that will come after the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Read Daniel 2:34, 35, 44, 45.

2:34   Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet [that were] of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 
 2:35   Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. 
 2:44   And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 
 2:45   Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. 

What do these verses teach about the fate of this world and the nature of the new one?

These verses leave little ambiguity about what happens when Jesus returns. In Luke 20:17, 18, Jesus identified Himself with this stone, which crushed to powder all that was left of this world. The Aramaic of Daniel 2:35 reads that after the gold, the silver, the clay, iron, and the bronze were crushed, they “became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them”. That is, nothing is left of this old world after Jesus returns.

Meanwhile, the stone that destroyed all trace of this old world “became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth”. And this kingdom, which arises as a result of the Second Coming, is one that “shall never be destroyed”, and “it shall stand forever” (Dan. 2:44).

Only one of two endings awaits every human being who has ever lived on this planet. Either we will be with Jesus for eternity, or we will disappear into nothingness with the chaff of this old world. One way or another, eternity awaits us all.

That is correct, but it does not reveal what many need to hear. God is not going to burn for eternity all who do not repent. But, before unrepentant sinners disappear into nothingness, before they float away as chaff, they will pay for each and every sin. How? By fire. It is a painful death they will suffer after the thousand years when they are resurrected to face the judgment. It is not right to not tell them of the suffering which will come to all who reject God's grace and eternal happiness.

"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." 2 Cor. 5:10. "For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch."  Malachi 4:1.


Here is a very short message which is the whole Book of Jude. It would be good for all who live upon the Earth to read what is written therein.


 1:1   Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, [and] called: 
 1:2   Mercy unto you, and peace and love, be multiplied. 
 1:3   Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 
 1:4   For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 
 1:5   I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 
 1:6   And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 
 1:7   Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 
 1:8   Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 
 1:9   Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. 
 1:10   But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 
 1:11   Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. 
 1:12   These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 
 1:13   Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 
 1:14   And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 
 1:15   To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 
 1:16   These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling [words], having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. 
 1:17   But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 
 1:18   How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 
 1:19   These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. 
 1:20   But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 
 1:21   Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 
 1:22   And of some have compassion, making a difference: 
 1:23   And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 
 1:24   Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 
 1:25   To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen.

The Day of the Lord

However much we tend to think of the second coming of Jesus as a New Testament teaching alone, that’s not true. Of course, only after the first coming of Jesus, after His death, resurrection, and ascension were we given a fuller and richer revelation of the truth surrounding the Second Coming. But, as with so much else in the New Testament, the Old Testament reveals hints and shadows of this crucial truth long before it will happen. With the doctrine of the second coming of Jesus, the New Testament authors didn’t reveal a new truth; instead, they greatly enhanced a truth that had already been revealed in the Bible. Only now, in light of the crucified and risen Savior, can the promise of the Second Coming be more fully understood and appreciated.

Read the following texts. What do they teach us about the second coming of Jesus? Isa. 13:6, 9; Zech. 14:9; Dan. 12:1.

 13:6   Howl ye; for the day of the LORD [is] at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. 
 13:9   Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

14:9   And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. 

12:1   And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 
 

Beyond question, the “day of the LORD” will be a day of destruction and sorrow and turmoil for the lost. But it is also a day of deliverance for all of God’s people, those who are “found written in the book” (see also Phil. 4:3, Rev. 3:5, 13:8 ) . This theme, that of the “day of the LORD” as a time of judgment against the wicked but also a time when God’s faithful are protected and rewarded, is found in the Old Testament. For instance, though some will face the “LORD’s anger”, those who heed the call to “seek righteousness”, and “seek meekness” will “be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger” (Zeph. 2:1-3).

Read Matthew 24:30, 31.

 24:30   And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 
 24:31   And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 


In what way do these verses show this same great dichotomy between the lost and the saved at the second coming of Jesus?

As final events unfold, which side we are on will only become more apparent. What choices can and must we make now to make sure we’re on the right side?

We must allow Christ to open our eyes to our true condition. He speaks to the Seventh-day Adventist Church today, and to all professing Christians who remain deceived about the power of God's grace. From the Book of Revelation:

 3:14   And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 
 3:15   I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 
 3:16   So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 
 3:17   Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 
 3:18   I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 
 3:19   As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 
 3:20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 
 3:21   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 
 3:22   He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The Desire of Ages / Re: The Desire of Ages--13--The Victory
« Last post by Dorine on Today at 06:27:13 AM »
"As the Saviour has manifested trust in God, Satan urges Him to give still another evidence of His faith.  But again the temptation is prefaced with the insinuation of distrust, "If Thou be the Son of God." Christ was tempted to answer the "if;" but He refrained from the slightest acceptance of the doubt. He would not imperil His life in order to give evidence to Satan. The tempter thought to take advantage of Christ's humanity, and urge Him to presumption. But while Satan can solicit, he cannot compel to sin. He said to Jesus, "Cast Thyself down," knowing that he could not cast Him down; for God would interpose to deliver Him. Nor could Satan force Jesus to cast Himself down. Unless Christ should consent to temptation, He could not be overcome. Not all the power of earth or hell could force Him in the slightest degree to depart from the will of His Father."

This chapter should bring us so much hope as we learn how Jesus became victorious over temptation. If we are battling the carnal nature on our own it will be the most discouraging and hopeless feeling there is. By following Jesus' example we will find strength to resist temptation which will lead us to victory. With victory comes joy and peace and draws us even closer to our Saviour. Even though we fail many times He waits each time for our submission so He can pick us up and set us on higher ground once again.  I know there are many that do not believe this. Why they want to stay in a state of restless confusion or dangerous complacency I do not know but I believe what scripture says: "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw night to God, and He will draw nigh to you." James 4:7-8   A promise for true victory in Christ.

Sabbath Afternoon

Read for This Week’s Study: Isa. 13:6, 9; Matt. 24:30, 31; Dan. 2:34, 35; 2 Tim. 4:6-8; 2 Thess. 1:7-10.

Memory Text: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:27

The poet T. S. Eliot began a poem with the line: “In my beginning is my end”. However succinct, his words carry a powerful truth. In origins exist endings. We see echoes of this reality in our name, Seventh-day Adventist, which carries two basic biblical teachings: “Seventh day”, for the Sabbath of the Ten commandments, a weekly memorial of the six-day Creation of life on earth; and “Adventist”, pointing to the second coming of Jesus, in which all the hopes and promises of Scripture, including the promise of eternal life, will find their fulfillment.

However distant in time the Creation of the world (our beginning) is from the second coming of Jesus (our end, at least the end of this sinful existence), these events are linked. The God who created us (John 1:1-3) is the same God who will return and, in an instant, “in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound” (1 Cor. 15:52), will bring about our ultimate redemption. In our beginning, indeed, we find our end.

If we love Jesus supremely with all of the heart, then we shall have no end, for today we have eternal life that has no end if we maintain our connection with Christ. "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:12.


This week, we will talk about the final of all final events, at least as far as our present world is concerned: the second coming of our Lord Jesus.

Study this week’s lesson to prepare for Sabbath, June 30.

The Desire of Ages / Re: The Desire of Ages--13--The Victory
« Last post by Richard Myers on Today at 06:01:26 AM »
Amen Pastor Sean!  Again and again we are pointed to the foundation of our faith and our great need of grace continually to escape the lust in our fallen flesh and the temptations presented by the evil one. In today's reading we see that Jesus was tempted in powerful ways in attempt after attempt to get Him to sin. He is our example in being able to resist all that Satan throws at us. By maintaining our connection with Christ we may be victorious over every temptation. It is a promise. "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."  1 Cor. 10:13.

There is no excuse for sin. That is to say there is no excuse to excuse transgression. Yet we see this being taught from our pulpits and printed on our presses. This is why we read of this great deception from these pages every day. Our eyes need to be opened and our hearts need to allow Christ in. Then we shall not make excuses for what God condemns.

      Faith claims God's promises, and brings forth fruit in obedience. Presumption also claims the promises, but uses them as Satan did, to excuse transgression. Faith would have led our first parents to trust the love of God, and to obey His commands. Presumption led them to transgress His law, believing that His great love would save them from the consequence of their sin. It is not faith that claims the favor of Heaven without complying with the conditions on which mercy is to be granted. Genuine faith has its foundation in the promises and provisions of the Scriptures. 


And what did our first parents do that brought such ruin upon the world? They ate something God had told them not to eat. Just one of those "little" sins that many believe will not keep them from heaven. One of those transgressions being excused. Let us take time to strengthen our connection with Christ daily that we might gain the victory over such presumptions. Then we shall have love, joy, and peace that passes all understanding. Then we shall not deny Jesus His reward for all He suffered.
