Title: Purpose of The Remnant Online/Please Make First Post Here. Part 7
Post by: Richard Myers on July 26, 2002, 09:00:00 AM
In these final hours of probation for the sons of men, when the fate of
               every soul is so soon to be decided forever, the Lord of heaven and
               earth expects His church to arouse to action as never before. Those
               who have been made free in Christ through a knowledge of precious
               truth, are regarded by the Lord Jesus as His chosen ones, favored
               above all other people on the face of the earth; and He is counting on
               them to show forth the praises of Him who hath called them out of
               darkness into marvelous light. The blessings which are so liberally
               bestowed, are to be communicated to others. The good news of
               salvation is to go to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people.

               We desire to encourage this by providing a fellowship area to study
               and organize our efforts that we might, as a people, hasten the soon
               coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

               We do not provide this fellowship area for debating or idle talk. We
               have a work to do and we are looking for those who have a burden for
               souls as we do.

               The Word of God is our rule and by this we shall test all things. The
               Spirit of Prophecy has been entrusted to the Seventh-day Adventist
               Church to be a blessing to our world. We will follow the counsels given
               for ministry and actively teach those things God has seen fit to give
               for our edification and the salvation of those in darkness.

               Please join with us in our efforts to work with God in preparing a
               people to receive Jesus at His second coming.

               If this is your desire, welcome! Please make your initial post here, then
               join with us in glorifying and praising our Saviour Jesus Christ in all of
               these forums established for this purpose.

Hi Ele:

Welcome to The Remnant Online.

So you are living in Mexico. Never been there. Read that you teach vegetarian cooking, so take a look at the health forums I am sure you will find much to read and share.

Hi Garrett:

A number of reasons this is done to post here.

One to see if you are able to.
For us to say Hi welcome to The Remnant Online.
We hope it helps new members to feel comfortable to make a simple post and say hi to everyone.

Welcome to The Remnant Online. Look forward to seeing future posts throughout the forum.

Hello Garrett!  :)

Unlike the typical internet board, we are Christians so we are not trying to be anonymous, but friendly. Making a post here allows our members to see that you have joined with us online. Many do not make their first post here and some make no posts at all but just enjoy reading.

We are happy that you let us all know that you have registered. We look forward to getting to know you.

Welcome aboard to all of our newcomers. I am having difficulty keeping up with the names of recent members. Its good to have sister Ele from Mexico.

Mexico brings me back much memories. I graduated from the Universidad de Montemorelos Escuela de Medicina in 1983.

I encourage all medical missionary minded folk to post on the Right arm, Healthful living, and Ministry of Healing forums.

Welcome, Mark Anthony! Good that you found us online. It is always a blessing when those that are being led by the Holy Spirit come into fellowship with each other.

We look forward to getting to know you. I suppose that your line of work has been keeping you pretty busy for the last couple of years?  When your business slows down we will all be in trouble in the U.S. and I suppose the world. If it were not for the housing sector, the economy would have bombed long ago.

Again, welcome to our fellowship at TRO.

Welcome, Brother Calvin. We have brothers and sisters of all colors here from around the world. We share a common love of Jesus, the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy, and a desire to see Jesus face to face!   :)

We ask our members to not promote their sites or other interests in the forums. We allow your homepage to be listed in your profile if members wish to visit. You will find that this will help you also. It keeps things focused on the topic of discussion which hopefully is centered in Jesus.

We pray that your ministry will hasten the soon coming of Jesus. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or any moderator. We ask that you not solicit our members either online or privately. As you develop relationships here, some may desire to visit your site and can do so by viewing your profile.

Feel free to visit our forums and participate. We look forward to getting to know you.

More important than being part of "Remnant Online" I hope and pray we will all be part of that remnant that "keep the commandmnets of God and have the faith of Jesus."

God bless.

If you will read through the membership agreement you will better understand the format we have established here at TRO.

I found the site thru googleing on "Adventist Muslim".  I was very disappointed to get the forum posts saying the same thing i heard from the director of the Global Center for Adventist-Muslim Relations - Jerald Whitehouse - that the Muslim God and the Christian God is the same.

You can see our email exchange here:
http://storm.prohosting.com/dannywin/muslim-adventist-email.html

I was pleasantly surprised to see the truth being posted by one Richard Myers, and then was very happy to see that he is the web site creator  ;D

May God bless us as we uphold the truth, and give forth the 3rd Angel's Message in power.

Hello Daniel:

We are so pleased that you have joined our family here at The Remnant Online.

Like you I was doing a word search of Remnant when I came across this forum and have been here ever since.

May you be blessed with fellowship and truth as we share together the Word of God.

Hello, Maddy! Welcome to The Remnant Online!  :) We are happy that you found us.

When you have fully registered you have access to all SDA forums. As noted in the membership agreement this is a fellowship of Seventh-day Adventists. In order to discuss certain matters that pertain to our family we  have established the SDA private forums. We ask for a church affiliation and a personal phone number to verify membership information. There may be some circumstances that will allow for membership without  a church affiliation.

Maddy, you may e-mail the information after clicking on "contact us" at the bottom of the  page.

We look forward to your participation!  :)

Richard,

thank you for that clarification.  I am honestly not sure whether I am still "officially" an SDA or not.  The last time I was in church was 10 years ago.  I have been away from God for a long time and have started only seeking Him again in the past 2 months.  I have started attending church again too, but have not yet been rebaptized.  So I guess the private forums will have to wait.

God bless.

Thanks everyone! I have been accused of being hard-hearted and unloving because of my belief in God's Word as it is written, and trust in the SOP. I have seen too much in my career that plainly shows that probation is drawing to a close and this world has very little time left. I want to be ready to meet my Lord and God.

I am unable to enter many of the forums. Am I doing something wrong? Am I not allowed to enter these forums? Or is it just because I am a dumb ol' country boy that I can't figure it out? Thanks for your help.

It will take a while to read though much of the material here at TRO, but if you will take a minute and read through a few of the subjects in this forum you will better understand how we have structured the fellowship.

There are a number of forums like TRO online. Some of then are Seventh-day Adventists. The GC had two such forums and many difficulties. They finally closed them both. When we began we did so with a conviction that we needed to provide a fellowship that would not bring reproach upon God or the church. While there are topics that need to be discussed, they need to be done amongst Seventh-day Adventists so as to not hurt the church or Christ. In order to do this we created some private (SDA) forums. You will note this on the Forum Summary page where these forums have (SDA) in the title.

These SDA forums are accessible to all Seventh-day Adventists over the age of thirteen who have fully registered. This includes sending a personal phone number and a church affiliation so that we can confirm church membership. In some cases we may waive church membership if there is some valid reason to do so.

To complete the registration process click on "Contact Us" at the bottom of any page and forward the information and we will get you access to the SDA forums. God bless you, dear brother!

If you have a nickname, Brother Richard that will be good. We don't mind them at all. What we have tried to do is remove the "anonymity" from our fellowship. Many use the internet to say things they would never say if people knew who they were. While some at TRO remain "anonymous" we feel that it is better to use real names rather than "handles". Nicknames are just fine. It is the internet handles that we try to avoid. And, what one signs after a post is not the issue. The registration is the concern. You have used your full name and that takes care of our concern.

I generally have ceased to use a signature after a post. All may see who it is that is posting without me adding my name. We are easy to get along with.  :) Good to have you online with us!

Hi everyone,

My name is David. Married with a 2 year old daughter. Live NYC area. Grew up in China. Came to America about 13 years ago. Naturally I was an atheist. But came to know Jesus and love Him.

I hope I'll find some lively and mature discussoins here for my personal growth.

Have a blessed walk!

Welcome David to The Remnant Online.

We all come from many different backgrounds, but we have learned that the power of the Holy Spirit works on all hearts no matter how they have lived in their lives in the past if they so desire for the Spirit to do so.

Like so many of us we have come to know Jesus in a way that is special and beautiful, so please feel free to share your love for Jesus with us.

Dear Brother David,
Welcome and I assure you, you will find much inspiration and  knowledge as I did in TRO.  Daily, I  come closer to the Lord and I pray you also will give us your thoughts to inspire us.  God bless you and your family.

Well in the past on other forums I've used the name Redfog, which stands for REDheaded Fat Old Guy. This was my trailname during a 5 month 2200 mile packpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. But on this forum I think I'll stick with my real name.

Welcome Brother David!  Good to have you online with us! Two year olds are fun. Jesus is the tie that binds us all together no matter where we are or where we come from. We look forward to getting to know you and learning more about China. One of our members here online is a missionary in China today. She just returned there this last year.

Please share with us in the testimony forum how you came to know Jesus.  :)

Again, welcome to The Remnant Online (TRO)!!

Hello, My Name is Nadia Morgan. I have been an SDA for more than 15 years now. I find my religion has watered down in the last 5 years. Where I once lived my faith so strongly that I found myself alone even from Adventists, I am disgusted by my fickleness and am loosing every battle I am given to fight (I know He sends them to strengthen my dependence on Him, but I am so weakened with the friendships that I currently have that I am afraid to return to the loneliness). I am also a mother of 3 little ones (3,2,and 10 months) in my mid 30's and I am soooo tired that I can't seem to rise early and worship as I used to. I look in the mirror and I don't know that woman that I see. Most of the Adventists that I associate with here are such seemingly devout Christians, but they do not share my understanding of spiritual things. But I love them. But they are confusing me, I think...

Dear Richard S.  A big welcome to you.  I too would be interested in your  testimony.... We all share our thoughts and love for Jesus and hope you will do the same. God be with you.

A very big welcome also to you NCMorgan. You have come to the right place.  I also had trouble for a while bringing back my first love for Jesus, and this Forum sure helped.  I spend the early part of the morning reading and rereading some of the old posts here in the Forum  What an inspiration.  Ask our Heavenly Father for whatever your needs are and He will  bring back that old love and desire.  My prayers go out to you and may God be with you every moment of every day.   Ele Holmes

Dear Sister Nadia, welcome to our fellowship!  :) You do have your hands full with three little ones. God sees it all and He will  be your strength. It is a promise!
"Fear thou not; for I am with thee," He declares; "be not dismayed; for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Dear sister we pray that you be not confused. The simple truth of the gospel will keep you pointed towards Christ. Let Him be your guide and your strength. He promised to you the Holy Spirit. Behold Jesus daily. "My heart is steadfast, O God. I will sing and make music with all my soul!" Hold on to this precious statement. It is yours because Jesus gave it to you. Your children will grow  and you will pass by this time in your life where you cannot get a good nights sleep. Hold onto Jesus and He will lift you above the darkness and confusion. Keep singing and you will make it!!

We are here to encourage you. Don't hesitate to ask questions in the forums or to email any of the moderators or myself. We are here to help!  :) We thank Jesus that He brought you here for fellowship!  :) May the Lord bless our fellowship together.

Hi Nadia:

Sure can relate to some of the things you said in your post.

We have to realize that as we get closer to the coming of Jesus the lines between the sheep/goats, wheat/tares will get wider each day.

We have only one hope and promise. The hope is the soon coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ and the promise that He will come again.

Thank you all so much for your much appreciated replies. I have had a wonderful week. I would like to ask a question but am not sure this is the right place to do that. If not, would you kindly direct me to where I should go. I have a friend who is an SDA, and involved in Dungeons and Dragons. He has in the past tried to convince me that there is nothing wrong with it, though I have heard and studied to the contrary. I have told him of what our Father has said about elements of it, but, though he says he loves God and His word, is not convinced that what I have shown him applies to him since he does not worship these things (for they are not real to him) and is not a witch or sorcerer. My husband has become involved in it due to this young man's friendship. And that's another story altogether... I had washed my hands of my friend until he started encouraging my husband in this once dead hobbie of his. What may I show my friend to encourage him to be done with this folly?

Hello everyone,
I'm looking forward to becoming comfortable here.  I've been reading some topics here for a few months.  Was invited to come over here a few years ago, but felt keeping up with one forum at a time was all I could handle.  Recently left the other forum.  Too many non-SDA's permitted to have authoritative voices, making it look like we are just another "Christian Religion" like the rest of them.  I didn't care for that much.  So when I was informed that I would be "reviewed" for acceptance, it encouraged me that I would enjoy conversing with everyone here as probably everyone is on the "same page" so to speak.
Looking forward to some great discussion.
God Bless
EJ

Greetings,

My name is Amy Pavlovik and I have recently joined this forum. I have been so very blessed to find it. I am working my way through the studies on this quarter's Sabbath School lesson, and the Bible truths brought out have been a great help in my own spiritual life, as well as helping me to have a clearer understanding of just where I stand in my beliefs. I am also gaining a better understanding of why it is often confusing and unclear to read things that are written nowadays, because of the subtilty of false gospels and the mixture of truth and error.

My sister does not have internet access, but I am sending her copies of the lesson study pages because she is very interested to read them too. Thank you for letting God use you!

I am a mother of two very small children, and I am at home full time. We live in the country. I am a conservative Seventh-day Adventist, a graduate of a self-supporting school, and was formerly an overseas missionary. I am very eager to find likeminded Christian fellowship.

As my screen name suggests, I feel a burden for the inspired counsel we have been given on modesty and plainness of dress and appearance. I also appreciate the comments I have read here regarding the need for upholding church standards.

I look forward to being able to participate here more. God bless all of you!

Amy! Welcome to The Remnant Online! We are so very pleased to have you and other like-minded Seventh-day Adventist Christians study and fellowship with us. More than anything in this world, we wish to spread the love of God to the lost and dying. We also purpose to encourage our brothers and sisters on the front lines and those in supportive roles to keep the faith as it was once delivered to the saints.

Continue to review the topics that interest you and share with us your experience. A personal testimony is a most encouraging and faith-building expression. Thank you, dear sister. Again, welcome!

Welcome, Amy! What a blessing to you with us!  God has His children all around the world!  He is bringing us together!  The Sabbath School lessons are difficult because God wants us to be united, but we are not.  We have private forums so that we do not have to show division, but with the Sabbath School lessons, what else can we do?  We must teach the truth as it is in Jesus. It is a matter of life and death. It is such a blessing to know that some appreciate the work we are doing.   Many read, but few want to post their thoughts.  I pray that you will make our lessons better by sharing how God is leading you in the studies. We are growing in our understanding day by day.

Again, welcome, dear sister! We look forward to getting to know you!

Thanks so much Sybil & Dorine for your warm welcome - Hopefully together we can all gain strength and encouragement for the times through which we are now passing. I love the old song that says...
" It's me, It's me Oh Lord...Standing in the need of prayer." I read just recently that " the angels wonder why we pray so little when so much strength and power is available but we ask for so little.".  I believe it was John the Baptist who said..." I must decrease so that He can increase "  That's my goal, for Jesus said, " without Me you can do nothing "

Glad to be a part of this forum. I'm a pretty new Christian and have so much to learn. My parents were always SDA's so being a small child, I had to attend church with them for a few years but soon left the church in my teens and for many years, lived in the world and doing all it had to offer. It dismayed my parents but I had to find out for myself what was this "world" they always talked about that I was shielded from during my pre-teen years.

Fast forward 50 years, my dad contracted a terminal disease and it was during this time when I cared for him I heard the Lord calling.

My dad had all of Ellen G. White's books he collected from the 1950's.  Each time I saw them on his bookshelf, it would terribly anger me, I guess because during my church years, I heard all those hard to understand things in church I didn't want to hear.  Well, about a year after my dad's passing, I had to finally clear out his room and there was those Ellen White's books.

As I was boxing them, a voice said, "set that one aside" it was the Desire of Ages, then came The Great Controversy, Steps to Christ, Ministry of Healing and half dozen others. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop and read each book cover to cover, pretty amazing since the most I've ever read in my life was perhaps a half-inch thick book.

For the first time in my life, I knew Who Jesus was, His life and mission in this world and His great promise, and so those hated EGW books suddenly became precious to me.

It was as though Jesus was saying "you've seen the world, now it's time to come to Me"

In the years since, I've been reading on the Internet a lot of SDA church sites, forums, and blogs which is quite an eye opening experience! I've become keenly aware of those deceptions so subtle, that even the elect can be fooled working right in our midst and apparently is being highly successful.

Thanks Sybil, yes even though my teens years and the church relationship was not a pleasant one, there is one thing I learned back then, that there is a God that created all things and that same God is with us always, through thick and thin, all adversities and will return one day.

Amen! I can testify to that! Many of us should have been dead by now but by His grace He saved us from ourselves so He can finish the work He began. And if we told everything there is to tell on how we have seen His hand in direct action in our lives, no one would believe us.

Welcome Carls365;

That's the kind of testimony we need to hear more of. Yes, becoming an SDA is a wonderful and painful experience. But so it is in the world as well. When one joins the church and seeks to be faithful he takes alot of shots and blows. This is part of the humilty and refinement process we must go through.
  I look forward to hearing more from you.

Carl, welcome to our online family!!   Jesus knows just when and how to reach us! Thanks for sharing the testimony!  All of those books are filled with Scripture and each one of them points all to Jesus. As you have discovered, the truth is not always accepted. But, you are living proof that when it is accepted, it changes lives. We are so happy you have found us. We look forward to getting to know you. Don't be fearful of posting. We are your brothers and sisters and we love you!!

Again, welcome home. Your father will be so very happy when he sees that God answered his prayers!!!

Thanks all for the welcome! Yes, it's certainly nice to be among friends who believes the same thing, (there are so many "versions" of truth today especially among SDA's sadly) I too believe the time is getting so short, indeed it will catch most by surprise so, we of like minds have to stay together to help each other weather the coming storm.

Amen!  "Soon grievous troubles will arise among the nations--trouble that will not cease until Jesus comes. As never before we need to press together, serving Him who has prepared His throne in the heavens and whose kingdom ruleth over all. God has not forsaken His people, and our strength lies in not forsaking Him.
     The judgments of God are in the land. The wars and rumors of wars, the destruction by fire and flood, say clearly that the time of trouble, which is to increase until the end, is very near at hand. We have no time to lose. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. The prophecies of the eleventh of Daniel have almost reached their final fulfillment." Mar 25

My name is Peter, seen this forum advertised on dmoz in the SDA section. The site looks good and actice and the Bible study guide forum looks active which is good as I like to discuss the Bible study guide since I teach a Sabbath school class.

I am a member of another SDA forum but there are things on there I do not like and was looking for a better one. I seen other SDFA forums but this one looked the best. If I would have seen this forum before I would not have joined the other SDA forum.

Well, Pete, we all have done it so you are not alone. We hope you find this a truth-filled, Bible-based Seventh-day Adventist forum.

One of the main things I was looking for is seeing the Bible study guide having a good discussion which it looks as though this forum has.

Welcome Peter, glad you found a place where unadulterated truth is spoken and practiced. We have to be so careful as we near the Lord's return where all manner of things that seems to be truth on the surface abound.

Welcome dear brother! We are trying to press together on the platform of truth. We look forward to your participation and the opportunity to get to know you. Jesus is coming very soon and we still have much to do before He can take us with Him, not to mention the many who do not know Him that we are to share the truth with. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of our moderators. We will be happy to try and answer them. Also, we have private "SDA" forums that you can access by completing the registration process as explained in our membership agreement.

May God bless our fellowship together!

It is not until now that I noticed that my first post should have been here in order to introduce myself. A few years ago, I graduated from FIU with a PhD in Physical Chemistry. I am currently publishing an autobiography of myself. My interests are mainly in the fields of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and theology.
