    This is not unusual to be off vent for awhile and then return to ventilator assistance such as during the night for rest. Having COVID to the point of induced coma is a huge physical insult and recovery can be slower than we like. To be off vent for awhile is a good sign when healing from COVID.

    1 ¶ Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15

    Well Trevor: I do not have to provide the Scriptures. Theophilus did an excellent job. You need to stop always link everything to a specific church. It is what the Bible says and not the denomination. The Bible can speak for itself, if you let it. Blessings!

    Harp of God Ebook Yields Surprising Information, Datewise

    This is the Second Coming 1 Thess 4:16-18 "16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." And Rev 20:1-4 20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. So here is the judgement in Heaven taking place for that 1000 years. Then Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Then And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. Zech 14:5 says Christ returns with His saints. So they must have gone up before as it says in 1 Thess 4. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

    The salvation that God has provided extends far beyond the boundaries of the Seventh-day Adventis denomination. The ultimate responsibility for our spiritual nurture belongs to the Holy Spirit (HS). In guiding us spiritually the HS does not lead in a lock-step #1 followed by #2 and followed by #3 . . . .. Rather the HS develops an individual plan for each of us that is best designed to lead us on our individual pathway to God. For me that may be # 1 followed by #6 and then by #3. . . .. This results in individual SDA members being at different stages of spiritual growth. But, all are led by God in the activity of the Holy Spirit.

    With Jesus in His Sanctuary

    With Jesus in His Sanctuary Dr Leslie Hardinge Matt.13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. I believe the desert tabernacle to be a parable of the plan of salvation. It was one large physical representation of God's love and mercy shown to the people of Israel. I am also of the opinion that God does not waste words or create huge projects without meaning behind them. It was a delight for me to take the book "With Jesus in His Sanctuary" by Dr. Leslie Haringe and read it as part of my own personal study to understand the Sanctuary. I was not disappointed in my study of this book. I would have to say it was one of the best books of the religious genre that I have ever read. It seem that in every detail of the sanctuary from the construction to the the various services was described in detail and Dr. Hardinge was able to find Jesus in nearly every part of the sanctuary. Matt.13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. I have found these verses in Matthew from Jesus to be very interesting verses. In verse 10 and 11 Jesus notes that some people are not given understanding. But in verse 17 He discusses how the prophets and the righteous would desire to understand what they read in Scripture. We, in these current times, are blessed immensely to have the understanding that has been given to us thru the studies of the early pioneers of the church and continuing to recent authors such as Dr. Hardinge. Dr. Hardinge continued his study of the sanctuary message and how it is symbolic of even beyond this age into the age to come and the final judgements of all people and the evil angels and Satan. After this beautiful discussion of how Jesus was symbolized throughout the desert sanctuary and its services, he had one very chilling comment to make regarding those who are not saved especially those we care about and wonder why God didn't save them. "Convinced, but unrepentant still, Satan rouses himself and tries to rally his forces for one last desperate attack on the city. May I share with you what I further imagine? I look over the battlements of the city and there I see my best friend, about whose fate I had been concerned. He is actually preparing to claw down the jasper walls with his fingernails and pull Christ from His throne! He is doing this after all he has seen! And in my ignorance of his true character I had wondered whether a view of Jesus would change his mind! Now he has had that view and still wants to destroy Him. My questions regarding the justice of his fate are gone. He has seen what every intelligent being in the universe has seen, evidence, irrefutable evidence, that, throughout the great controversy, God is good and God is just and God is right and God is kind, and yet he persists in his determination to destroy Him! What can God do for such a one as he?" I highly recommend this book to everyone. Cleary a five star book on Goodreads!

    Here’s an update: ”He has been doing better yesterday and today compared to Sunday when they were preparing us for the end. He is down to needing 60% oxygen. He had his first time of dyalis and they removed some fluid. They said if they do dyalis they will make that choice on a daily basis depending on how he is doing. He had a slight fever last night but none today. He has a long way to go to recover but he is fighting and we are praying and praising God for my son still being with us.”

    Secular Newspaper article mentioning Ellen G. White

    I should probably explain: In his early days, Walter Rae presented himself as one who almost thought that God had dictated the words that Ellen White wrote and therefore was totally without error. When Rae was forced to admit error in her works, he went totally 180 degrees in the opposite direction. During those early days, I kept track of Rae and what he was writing. I do not mean to say that I agreed with him. I did not.

    I did consider them. Let's go over them. Isaiah 26:9–10 This Chapter goes back also from the previous one. This is ancient IsraEL and if they would have follow THE FATHER'S WILL then things would have been different and the would lead people on earth to HIS House. This was not the latter days nor the return of YAHSHUA. This text did not mention THE SON but it was dealing with THE FATHER! Zechariah 14:16–17 This again was a future promise to IsraEL and Jerusalem. But this city has become Sodom and Babylon in Rev 11 and 18 a New Jerusalem that is made in Heaven and promise by YAHSHUA in John. YAHSHUA said: Let not your heart be trouble and HE go to prepare a place. This place was the New Jerusalem because the old one has fail and would become uncage birds of different religions. I lived there in and the Christians, Islamic, Coptic and other sects like during the time of the disciples/apostles. Ancient IsraEL and Jerusalem has fail so you cannot accept them. The New Jerusalem is the promise to be made by YAHSHUA! Trevor this never took place that was a promise if IsraEL had obeyed, they didn't. If you notice in Rev Chapter 20 THE FATHER and the Heavenly Temple also come down the earth made New and that found in Isa 66:22-24. Please know that YAHSHUA and the saints return to eat at the welcome table in Heaven and then went over the Books. After the Thousands years and Satan and all the wicked destroy by fire. The earth will be made New. Now, YAHSHUAH and the New City will come down first after the thousands years. HE will plant HIS FEET on Mt Olivet and it will become a plain. Because the old Jerusalem will be destroyed. Yes, that is the battle of Armageddon when it will be destroyed. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for ELOHIYM hath avenged you on her. Rev 18:20 After the New City comes down and all is destroyed then THE FATHER and The Heavenly Temple will come down because the earth will have been made New. The New earth will be the New Head Quarters! I have answer you concerns. I hope that you realize that the latter days given to John is different from your verses and you notice certain things, the reason why! Be blessed always!

    I am not sure you understood me. When I hear so many say that the name doesn't save you that should be a no brainer, so is the many times repeated phrase Jesus came to save us all. However I don't think simply having faith and believing does either. What do you do with that faith and belief? I know several that have left the denomination saying the name Adventist will not save them, or the important thing is to have faith or believe in the second coming. Or you must not judge.Is that true or can I be a practicing? (fill in your favorite denomination) when Christ returns and that will be acceptable for salvation if I have faith and believe. Or maybe lack any denomination but do have faith. Will we have various groups believing different doctrine but they all have faith and the name Adventist won't save you. Does that faith and belief require or cause action? Without "action" how much is it worth? Does acting on your faith and belief lead you to honor the biblical doctrines? Or deciding on your own what is important to salvation? Other issues seem to be taking dominance in the denomination so "doctrine" is almost a dirty word. You mentioned climate change and I am not sure exactly why. I believe climate change has become almost a religion for the left. Climates change, always have, but the earth will not be destroyed because of that I agree when Jesus returns there will be only two options and I don't think simply having faith and believing in the second coming is sufficient

    One of my wild horse pictures in the mountains...(down near Sundre). When I saw this pregnant Mare foraging in the frigid winter weather, the thought struck me that very few of us have to work like that, against so many odds just to eat. They live and move in these wild barren wilderness areas, and they NEVER leave one of their little ones alone. Not even for a minute. Everyone is surrounded, protected, all the time in this herd. By each other. I loved to see these wild ones roaming the wilderness, they acted free. They were content, the whole herd moved "as one," (Judges 20:11), and everyone was safe, because everyone was "one." In all things UBUNTU this would mean "I am because we are." God has given us directions for facing the tough times. The wild horses I photograph tell many of these lessons. I am reminded of the following scripture: If the smallest evils to which you are exposed cause you to make so many bitter complaints now, how will you feel when, in the course of your life now, when a time comes where you will be exposed to much greater, from enemies much more powerful? Footmen may here be the symbol of common evil events; horsemen, of evils much more terrible. If you have sunk under small difficulties, what wilt thou do when big ones come? Like these horses who survive the coldest winter deep freezes in the mountains; there is a lesson here for us all. To "run with the horses, visit many good books often, but live in the Bible." We are living in a time where God's Word has never been more important. Wont you live there, and be "as one" with everybody around the world who is doing the same? Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalms 119:105) Thy word is a lamp - This is illustrated thus by Solomon, Pro 6:23 : “The commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.” God’s word is a candle which may be held in the hand to give us light in every dark place and chamber; and it is a general light shining upon all his works, and upon all our ways. This is THE Light that got me out of some pretty rough stuff the last couple of years or so.

    English words can have more than one meaning. The word "adventist," spelled with an "a" does mean one who is looking for the 2nd Advent. The word "Adventist," Spelled with an "A,' may mean one who is a member of a specific denomination.

    Get out of marriage free card

    Many Christian churches recognize the "Pauline privilege." That is the right to remarry in the case of abandonment. It is derived from this passage: 1Co 7:15 "But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so; in such a case the brother or sister is not bound. It is to peace that God has called you."

    Get out of marriage free card

    Phodude has misunderstood the effect of divorce on the lives of people. There is no such thing as divorced people getting out of marriage free. There are costs that are paid in all circumstances, regardless of what they are. In a situation where one marital partner attempts to murder the other, but fails to do so, would Photodude prohibit divorce and remarriage? It happens. In a situation where a marital partner attempts to end the life of one of their children, whould Photodude prohibit divorce and remarriage? It happens. On the assumption that Photodude is not presently involved in needing to make a decision relating to divorce, I wonder why he seems so concerned about what someone else may be doing. Why should he need to know the messy details of the life of someone else? Why does he need to know whether or not adultery was involved? In a denomination of some 21 million members, do all 21 million need to know that adultery was involved?

    Secular Newspaper article mentioning Ellen G. White

    Steve Daily is all that the source you cited said that he was. IOW, he was once a major SDA pastor. From my graduate background in psychology, I am hesitant to make a diagnosis absent an in-depth personal interview with the individual. IOW, I do not like to do such for any historical figure that has lived in the past. My initial evaluation of this book is to consider it to be somewhat in the same light as I have considered the book written by Walter Rae: The White Lie. I consider the SDA Church to be endebted to the work that Rae did. He discovered facts. I do not argue facts that he discovered. However, I faulted him for his evaluation of facts. I had followed Walter Rae for years, while he remained a "good" but extreme Adventist. I faulted him at that time because he elevated EGW well above the position that she should have held. Then when he found her to be human, facts that could not be dismissed, he changed his opinion of her 180 degrees and went totally in the exact opposite direction. I believe that Steve Daily would have been more helpful if he had been a bit more nuanced in his evaluation of EGW. For whatever reason, I think that he has gone further than warrented in his evaluation of EGW.

    Vaccine Facts

    Excellent, excellent article!! "We also need to consider what my vaccination could mean for someone else. Let’s suppose that all the older people get vaccinated, and all those with other health risks get vaccinated. The trouble is that at least 6 percent of the people who get the vaccine won’t actually generate a satisfactory immune response. This is even more likely in older people and those on immune-suppression medications necessary to treat a number of health conditions, including cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and polymyositis—just to name a few. In fact, a recent study suggests that 77 percent of multiple sclerosis patients who take one of the common immune treatments and 96 percent who take another common immune treatment developed no measurable response to the vaccine.17 So now, these older people or the immune suppressed have done everything they can to protect themselves—but many of them are still vulnerable (and they may not know it). So if I decide not to be vaccinated and then catch COVID, I can transmit the disease to one of these friends, grandparents, or patients of mine. And then they can come down with severe or fatal COVID, even though they’ve been very vigilant. We shouldn’t make them live in solitary confinement forever!" This is exactly what happen to General Colin Powell!!
