Feb 22 2014 Sabbath Study. Defending our lifestyle and our wealth seems to fly in the face of the “S.O.P”. We can conclude that it is possible for the rich to be saved, but also we can conclude it is at extreme risk to the possessor of these riches. After all we should be preparing for Christ’s soon return. That is, if we really believe He is coming, or is it just a cliché we throw out there? To make it look like we believe? Our priorities should be changing.

                          

                              The Rich Young Man

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions……Matt 19:21-22 (KJV)

                             

        *How sad for this person who chose his possessions rather than Christ*

 

Inspiration says:

We ought now to be heeding the injunction of our Saviour: "Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not." It is now that our brethren should be cutting down their possessions instead of increasing them. We are about to move to a better country, even a heavenly. Then let us not be dwellers upon the earth, but be getting things into as compact a compass as possible.  {5T 152.1}  1882-1889

 

Is it possible that those who are willing to part with their “STUFF” are the ones who will eventually be saved? Our stuff represents creature comforts that make our lives seemingly more blessed and easier. The vision below that Ellen White had paints a different picture.

 

                          January 12, 1869 A Dream.

As we progressed, the path still continued to grow narrow. We were obliged to press close to the wall, in order to save ourselves from falling off the narrow road, down the deep precipice. We then cut the luggage from the horses, which fell over the precipice. We continued, on horseback, greatly fearing as we came to the narrower places in the road, that we should lose our balance, and fall.  At this point, small cords were let down from the top of the pure white wall, which we eagerly grasped, to aid us in keeping our balance upon the path. As we traveled, the cord moved along with us. The path finally became so narrow that we concluded that we could travel more safely without our shoes; and we journeyed on with bare feet. 

We then thought of those who had not accustomed themselves to privations and hardships. Where were such now? They were not in the company. At every change, some were left behind, and those only remained who had accustomed themselves to endure hardships. The privations of the way only made these more eager to press on to the end. Our danger of falling from the pathway increased. We pressed close to the white wall,yet could not place our feet fully upon the path, for it was too narrow.  {RH, January 12, 1869 par. 6}

 The chords are symbols of our total dependence on Christ.

The sermon below is about this vision or dream that Ellen White had.

 

                   Total dependence on God-learning to trust, obey and let go.

                   The sermon “link below” was given by David Gates

                   Hope this helps us get ready; your brother in Christ; Dennis

Also,those who can leave America,Europe,go to central,latin and south America as the soon as possible.Those,who can not leave those country,bring yourself and your family in the countryside,do it rather quickly!!!.Things will be sudden,airport will be clause for many and very costly to fly any where,frontier will be clause very quickly.When the control will be put in place at the SUNDAY LAW buy and sale will not be possible for God's people,YOU WILL THANK THE LORD FOR LEADING OUT OF THE CITIES ON TIME.This also is a straight testimony that we should not FORGET.Amen

Thank you for sharing "Veli Kotilainen".  This is really eye opening.

Comment by Veli Kotilainen on February 14, 2014 at 8:28am

Here is another quote which might help us:

"According to the light that God has given me in vision, wickedness and deception are increasing among God's people who profess to keep His commandments. Spiritual discernment to see sin as it exists, and then to put it out of the camp, is decreasing among God's people; and spiritual blindness is fast coming upon them. The straight testimony must be revived, and it will separate those from Israel who have ever been at war with the means that God has ordained to keep corruptions out of the church. Wrongs must be called wrongs. Grievous sins must be called by their right name. All of God's people should come nearer to Him and wash their robes of character in the blood of the Lamb. Then will they see sin in the true light and will realize how offensive it is in the sight of God."

Ellen White speaks of certain principles involved in giving the "straight testimony." Here are some of them:

1. Be aware of the effect of sin on the church. "The plain, straight testimony must live in the church. . . . God holds His people, as a body, responsible for the sins existing in individuals among them. If the leaders of the church neglect to diligently search out the sins which bring the displeasure of God upon the body, they become responsible for these sins." 1

2. Mingle reproof with love and compassion. The objective of dealing with sin is to destroy the sin, not the sinner. Any surgical operation to remove sin must attempt to save the individual. "All are not fitted to correct the erring. They have not wisdom to deal justly, while loving mercy. They are not inclined to see the necessity of mingling love and tender compassion with faithful reproofs. Some are ever needlessly severe." 2

3. Make plain the truth with patience, and kindness. God requires that we show the same love, patience, and kindness toward those we reprove as God does toward us when we err. The truth needs to be made plain, but always in an atmosphere and spirit of love. The pulpit is an appropriate forum for dealing with corporate sins, but it is not the place to start with personal sins. God has ordained a method for dealing with personal sins in Matthew 18. As ministers, we would do well to remember that we too are sinners before we deal with sin among our members.

"We should ever bear in mind that we are all erring mortals, and that Christ exercises much pity for our weakness, and loves us although we err. If God should deal with us as we often deal with one another, we should be consumed. While ministers preach the plain, cut ting truth, they must let the truth do the cutting and hewing, not do it them selves." 3

I asked the meaning of the shaking I had seen, and was shown that it would be caused by the straight testimony called forth by the counsel of the True Witness to the Laodiceans. This will have its effect upon the heart of the receiver, and will lead him to exalt the standard and pour forth the straight truth. Some will not bear this straight testimony. They will rise up against it, and this is what will cause a shaking among God’s people.{CET 176.1}

I want to ask in connection of this. What is the STRAIGHT TESTIMONY given by the True Witness? What does it have to do with the message to the laodiceans?

Comment by EMILE LUNION on December 13, 2013 at 5:57pm

The call of here is the bridegroom let us go to meet him,will be giving any time from now and in the future.But,rest sure it will come at the time we are lease expect it.  ------------ When the call shall be made? ------- When Satan will appear with all his evil angels on Earth in the FORM OF HUMAN BEING,MAKING ALL TYPES OF MIRACLES TO DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD,AND ACCUSE THE ADVENTISTS OF BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE BAD THINGS WHICH ARE TAKING PLACE ON EARTH NOW,AND BREAKING THE SUNDAY SABBATH.At that precise moment,the call shall be be made by Jesus ,"TO ME !!! ALL THOSE WHO ARE FOR THE LORD"----------------- AT that time champions will be very few --- Because the appearance of Satan will bring  PERSECUTION ON ALL THOSE WHO THERE TO LET KNOW THAT THEY ARE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS.------ AT THAT TIME THE MIGHTY FINALS SHAKING WILL TAKE PLACE.MAY GOD HELPS US ALL FOR THIS TERRIBLE SHAKING WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE FAKING OUT.It will be the  CRUCIAL TIME TO BE WITH THE LORD OR AGAINST HIM. ---- FROM THE CHURCH TO THE WORLD ------- THERE WILL BE ONLY 2 CAMPS,2 ARMIES.MAY GOD HELP US AND KEEP US OF NOT BEING SHAKING OUT OF HIS ARMY CAMP.AMEN

Comment by EMILE LUNION on December 13, 2013 at 5:14pm

Just to remind our brethren that the straight testimony is not a new or any special message that the counsel of the true witness of the Laodiceans will bring will bring in the Last Days.BUT !!!! It will be the call to come back to the all times Religion,and pick up the standards  that, we SAD, have left down by the way side by the Lord's Army over the years,Reform,Revival are important to hear the call hear is the bridegroom let us go to meet him. Matthew 25 :1-5
