The only way that we can grow as Christians is by acknowledging our weaknesses so that we give place for God to work in our lives. The vulnerability in that acknowledgment is uncomfortable, but we can trust in the strength of God to give us relief.
Live With the Right Vision—Comments on News and Prophecy (October 29, 2022)
Terrible Events are escalating in the world on a daily basis, and the future looks grim. Some say that there is no reason to study hard in school or college in order to get good grades; pursue a career, get married, have children, and plan otherwise for the future in general, as the world will end soon and Christ’s return is on the horizon. But is this the right approach?
How Are We to Do God’s Work?
Many different ideas exist today as to what is the responsibility of God’s Church in these end times, and how to accomplish what we are commissioned to do. The Bible compares our task with the blowing of trumpets to warn of impending disaster. It also shows us how we are to blow these trumpets. It takes dedication and zeal, as well as total reliance on God and the conviction that He will bless our efforts as long as we are loyal to Him and do not give up.
Our Ultimate Human Potential
First, God created spirit beings and things within the spirit world, and the Bible also shows us WHAT He created. In due course, He created the physical world—the universe with its galaxies, suns, and stars, and our earth. Science is still puzzled to this day as to how the universe came into being. The earth later became void and empty, and God renewed the face of the earth and created man. Why? What is the purpose of human existence, and what does the Bible reveal about the future of man… as well as the future of our solar system and the entire universe?
The Unprofitable Servant
Why are offerings crucial? Why can only tithing or meeting the minimum requirement make us unprofitable servants? What should our attitude be when giving an offering?
An Opportunity for Everyone
God’s plan is full of mercy. People who never had the chance to correctly understand the complete Truth of God’s plan will have a chance to learn and obtain salvation during a resurrection to physical life during the Great White Throne Judgment period. The firstfruits in God’s Family will have the role of sharing the Truth to guide them in their understanding.
LGD: Our Calling To Eternal Life!
This eighth day—the time which has come to be called “the Last Great Day” does not end the plan of God! The Bible reveals that a New Heaven and Earth and a New Jerusalem will be created by God. This future time will also include the New Members of the Family of God—those who will have a place in the eternal realm of God’s glorious New Kingdom!
The Great Day of Salvation
The Last Great Day symbolizes the period of the “Great White Throne Judgment”, and is the crowning achievement in God’s plan for the salvation of all of mankind and the building of His exceedingly extended Family, consisting of righteous God beings who will be perfect in character. This high holy Sabbath follows directly the Feast of Tabernacles. An overview of its meaning is given in this message.
The Meaning of the Last Great Day
This Last Great Day has meaning that is incomprehensible to the world. They don’t keep the Feast days and so they simply cannot understand. Because we keep this day we understand that those who were not called in previous ages, who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ or the message He brought, will, in just over a thousand years from now, have their first and only opportunity for salvation. Because people have to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, this automatically rules out all those other religions and ideas that have their basis on other erroneous foundations.
The expression, “Thank God” is typically used as a casual phrase without a proper acknowledgment to God. However, when WE use that phrase, do we truly believe it?
