Our Christian Lineage

April 26th, 2017 |

If there is one thing that the Protestant world lacks in our time, it is knowledge regarding the history of the Protestant Reformation. We are warned in Ecclesiastes 1:9

“That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.”

This verse here tells us that history repeats itself. The false Christian church hundreds of years ago who attempted to destroy the Bible and its true followers are today attempting to regain the power they lost. Only this time, Protestants are uniting with this power and forsaking Biblical doctrines. If there would be only one book I could recommend to any Protestant, it would be “The Great Controversy” by Ellen White. And if there would be someone who desires just a taste of the Great Controversy’s truth in short 5 minute episodes I would recommend to them this short video series called “Lineage” shown below.

This series traces the spiritual lineage of the true church throughout history, beginning in the third and fourth century. The entire series, currently 22 episodes can all be viewed for free at their youtube channel here.

The Use Of The Tithe

April 14th, 2016 |
The following article is written by Ellen White and is found in 7 Manuscript Releases pages 135-138..
“Thou shalt command the children of Israel that they bring thee pure olive oil, beaten, for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always.” This was to be a continual offering, that the house of God might be properly supplied with that which was necessary for His service. His people today are to remember that the house of worship is the Lord’s property, and that it is to be scrupulously cared for. But the funds for this work are not to come from the tithe. The tithe is to be used for one purpose,—to sustain the ministers whom the Lord has appointed to do His work. It is to be used to support those who speak the words of life to the people, and carry the burden of the flock of God.
 
But there are ministers who have been robbed of their wages. God’s provision for them has not been respected. Those who have charge of our church buildings are to be supplied with the means that is necessary to keep these buildings in good repair. But this money is not to come from the tithe.
A very plain, definite message has been given to me to give to our people. I am bidden to tell them that they are making a mistake in applying the tithe to various objects which, though good in themselves, are not the object to which the Lord has said that the tithe is to be applied. Those who make this use of the tithe are departing from the Lord’s arrangement.

God will judge for these things. One reasons that the tithe may be appropriated to school purposes. Still others would reason that canvassers and colporteurs should be supported from the tithe. But a great mistake is made when the tithe is drawn from the object for which it is to be used,—the support of the ministers. There should today be in the field one hundred well qualified laborers where now there is but one.

God cannot look upon the present condition of things with approval, but with condemnation. His treasury is deprived of the means that should be used for the support of the gospel ministry in fields nigh and afar off. Those who proclaim the message of truth before great congregations, and who do house-to-house work as well are doing double missionary work, and in no case are their salaries to be cut down.

The use of the tithe must be looked upon as a sacred matter by our people. We must guard strictly against all that is contrary to the message now given.

There is a lack of ministers because ministers have not been encouraged. Some ministers who have been sent to foreign lands, to enter fields never worked before, have been given the instruction, “You must sustain yourselves. We have not the means with which to support you.” This ought not to be, and it would not be if the tithe, with gifts and offerings, were brought into the treasury. When a man enters the ministry, he is to be paid from the tithe enough to sustain his family. He is not to feel that he is a beggar.

The impression is becoming quite common that the sacred disposition of the tithe no longer exists…

Homosexuality, the transgender movement & Christianity: What is the loving thing to do?

February 1st, 2016 |

The world we live is filled with controversy. But among our current controversies, one of the most prominent is the debate regarding homosexuality and the transgender movement. The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender) movement is debated in politics, the news and even the church. How should church members, pastors and church leaders react to this movement? Should we promote homosexual or transgender individuals to leadership positions in the church? Should we allow such individuals to even attend church? Regarding LGBT individuals, what is the loving thing to do? These are important questions for our time, and thankful Jesus has given us the answers in His Word. But before we find the answers today, let us pray… Read More »

Illuminate the Earth With God’s Glory

Be Courageous

August 12th, 2011 |

“After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.”  (Revelation 18:1)

“The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close. Here are “the times of refreshing” to which the apostle Peter looked forward when he said: “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and He shall send Jesus.” Acts 3:19, 20.

Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven. By thousands of voices, all over the earth, the warning will be given. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and signs and wonders will follow the believers.” (The Great Controversy p. 611-612, Ellen White)
