    Days of Praise

    October 16, 2018 Water and Blood “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.” (1 John 5:6) John’s writings are replete with examples and illustrations that focus on the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. The gospel of John is built around seven great miracles of creation demonstrating the unique power that only the omnipotent Creator God could wield (John 10:25). In his first epistle, John uses the word “know” 28 times to emphasize the behaviors and evidence that assure us that we have a living faith in Jesus Christ and are in truth the sons of God. In today’s text, John lists three “proofs” witnessed in history that verify the incarnation of the God-man Jesus Christ. The water refers to physical birth—the amniotic sac that surrounds and cushions every human child until just before birth. This common experience was used by the Lord Jesus to help Nicodemus understand the necessity of the second (spiritual) birth required to enter the Kingdom of heaven (John 3:5-6). The blood is either a reference to Christ’s death on Calvary “for the remission of sins” (Romans 3:25), or, perhaps, the fulfillment of the many prophecies that this Messiah would be of the lineage of David (Luke 1:32). Either way, this poignant evidence was both visible and verifiable. The “Spirit” witness is obviously the time when the Holy Spirit visibly descended like a dove on the Lord Jesus at His baptism by John the Baptist, and the voice of the heavenly Father said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (John 1:33; Matthew 3:16-17). There is thus a threefold witness to Christ’s incarnation: human physical birth, royal bloodline with the shedding of innocent blood, and heavenly confirmation. “This is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world” (John 4:42).

    Trivia Quiz?

    Answer: Heinz 57 is a shortened form of a historical advertising slogan "57 Varieties of Pickles" by the H. J. Heinz Company. It was developed from the marketing campaign that told consumers about the numerous pickle products available from the Heinz company. But why the number 57? Heinz said he chose "5" because it was his lucky number and the number "7" was his wife's lucky number. The first product to be promoted under the "57 varieties" slogan was prepared horseradish. In 1876, they introduced the product now most famously associated with Heinz: tomato ketchup.

    I find interesting the amount of time that you seem to spend reading material that you find not worth reading. You are welcome to consider it spam, in this forum. As I previously said, Get used to it. I will continue.

    Church Elections

    It has now become very clear that you are spamming forum members as this is the fortieth topic in just two weeks that I have book marked on the topic here and that not even counting the topics in the forum specifically designated for THAT topic. They are, for the most part, NOT "newsworthy" and even though in many of the supposedly different topics; every single one of them runs the rabbit trail to WOE within 5 minutes. SPAM: (from Wikipedia) Spamming, unsolicited or undesired electronic messages Email spam, unsolicited, undesired, or illegal email messages Messaging spam, spam targeting users of instant messaging (IM) services, sms or private messages within websites Spam (food), a canned pork meat product Under the circumstances, the SPAM sandwhich would seem to proffer the least amount of danger. And those things are NASTY!!

People wont really know that though unless they have the time to sort through and read the dozens of spam posts being hammered into forum members about it

    Unity & Schism

    Here is a quote from the article, and then followed by my "famous" commentary: Number two is a complete and knowingly made false-hood. The author made a big mistake there, as well as numerous smaller ones. IF one is truly desiring to "tell the truth" instead of just getting their own way, they would go to the source of said truth to see what THAT SOURCE says. I would submit that no one is able to point out just how a General Conference IN SESSION counts as "centralized authority." Its just NOT there. If you think it is, please tell exactly where?? They are NOT asking people to surrender their conscience at all. We all can AND DO keep our conscience intact all the time, no matter what. They are simply asking people, who are interested in doing their part for church unity to put their own opinion on hold [if required] until or IF said opinion can be approved the right way. Thats really all there is to it! You are still free to believe what you want. But fact of the matter is that IF WOE ever did get approved; then, people will definitely have to surrender their conscience to the NAD/WOE entities.

    Accusers Of The Brethren

    In the parable the father's remonstrance with the elder son was Heaven's tender appeal to the Pharisees. "All that I have is thine"--not as wages, but as a gift. Like the prodigal, you can receive it only as the unmerited bestowal of the Father's love. {COL 209.4} Self-righteousness not only leads men to misrepresent God, but makes them cold-hearted and critical toward their brethren. The elder son, in his selfishness and jealousy, stood ready to watch his brother, to criticize every action, and to accuse him for the least deficiency. He would detect every mistake, and make the most of every wrong act. Thus he would seek to justify his own unforgiving spirit. Many today are doing the same thing. While the soul is making its very first struggles against a flood of temptations, they stand by, stubborn, self-willed, complaining, accusing. They may claim to be children of God, but they are acting out the spirit of Satan. By their attitude toward their brethren, these accusers place themselves where God cannot give them the light of His countenance. {COL 210.1}
