~!~ Moment Of Inspiration ~!~


…This experience has a lesson for us. The mighty God of Israel is our God. In Him we may trust, and if we obey His requirements He will work for us in as signal a manner as He did for His ancient people. Everyone who seeks to follow the path of duty will at times be assailed by doubt and unbelief. The way will sometimes be so barred by obstacles, apparently insurmountable, as to dishearten those who will yield to discouragement; but God is saying to such, Go forward. Do your duty at any cost. The difficulties that seem so formidable, that fill your soul with dread, will vanish as you move forward in the path of obedience, humbly trusting in God.“ EGW (PP 437)

Yes! "In Him we may trust, and if we obey His requirements..." What are His requirements? May the Holy Spirit help you to understand all truth.

 

The Jews refused to accept Christ as the Messiah, and they cannot see that their ceremonies are meaningless, that the sacrifices and offerings have lost their significance. The veil drawn by themselves in stubborn unbelief is still before their minds. It would be removed if they would accept Christ, the righteousness of the law.  {RH, April 22, 1902 par. 14}
     Many in the Christian world also have a veil before their eyes and heart. They do not see to the end of that which was done away. They do not see that it was only the ceremonial law which was abrogated at the death of Christ. They claim that the moral law was nailed to the cross. Heavy is the veil that darkens  their understanding. The hearts of many are at war with God. They are not subject to his law. Only as they shall come into harmony with the rule of his government, can Christ be of any avail to them. They may talk of Christ as their Saviour; but he will finally say to them, I know you not. You have not exercised genuine repentance toward God for the transgression of his holy law, and you cannot have genuine faith in me, for it was my mission to exalt God's law.  {RH, April 22, 1902 par. 15}

Paul did not represent either the moral or the ceremonial law as ministers in our day venture to do. Some cherish such antipathy to the law of God that they will go out of the way to denounce and stigmatize it. Thus they despise and pour contempt on the majesty and glory of God.  {RH, April 22, 1902 par. 16}
     The moral law was never a type or a shadow. It existed before man's creation, and will endure as long as God's throne remains. God could not change nor alter one precept of his law in order to save man; for the law is the foundation of his government. It is unchangeable, unalterable, infinite, and eternal. In order for man to be saved, and for the honor of the law to be maintained, it was necessary for the Son of God to offer himself as a sacrifice for sin. He who knew no sin became sin for us. He died for us on Calvary. His death shows the wonderful love of God for man, and the immutability of his law.  {RH, April 22, 1902 par. 17}

 

In consequence of continual transgression, the moral law was repeated in awful grandeur from Sinai. Christ gave to Moses religious precepts which were to govern the everyday life. These statutes were explicitly given to guard the ten commandments. They were not shadowy types to pass away with the death of Christ. They were to be binding upon man in every age as long as time should last. These commands were enforced by the power of the moral law, and they clearly and definitely explained that law.  {RH, May 6, 1875 par. 10}

 

Mal 4:4  Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, the statutes and judgments.
Mal 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD
 

Lev 23:1  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Lev 23:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
Lev 23:3  Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
Lev 23:4  These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Lev 23:5  In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover.
Lev 23:6  And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

It seems to me that the Christian era has been a repeat of the history of Israel. The time of the judges compared to the early church where there was no one central leader. Then the rise of the papacy and the split in the church into Catholic and Orthodox would line up with the time of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Even the great reformers could be compared to prophets like Isaiah and Jeremiah.

By the time of the first coming of Christ the Jews were God's people in name only and the true followers were those who understood Him, accepted Him, and His radically different message than what was normally taught. Now at God's direction and leading, Adventists are going everywhere preaching the last of the Bible's missing truths lost in the dark ages. This is creating the conditions whereby the hot and cold of Revelation's seventh letter are being separated. The parable of the wheat and tares "sending forth His angels" in the from of the 3 angels messages of Revelation 14 being preached are changing the Christian world and that effect is spreading out to the rest of the world as well.

Along with all this a counterfeit system of interpreting Revelation is also growing with literal Israel and everyone afraid of the mark of the beast as a credit card or rfid chip. It's all going to happen soon!

Christ has fantastic plans for the remnant team: Habakkuk 1:5 Look among the nations and watch, Be utterly astounded1 For I i will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told youl.....

Zech 8;22.23 Says humdreds will grasp the sleeve of we spiritual Israelistes sayig we are going with you for we have heard you are with Godl...

Zephaniah 3: 20 At that time (now) I will bring you backm .....for I will give you fame and praise among the people of the earth,...

Let us look up for our redemption draws near, His Chariots of Salvation are on the way.
