Who? Who? said the Owl.

Photo by Erik Karits on Pexels.com WHO? WHO? Asked the owl? Who are you? so I answered the bird with a Who? Who? back. Joe, my dog, heard me talking to the owl, and he heard the owl talking back, so he barked at me, and I laughed.

In all the years of being a Dental Hygienist, there were three occasions when I had no answer. The patient had redness, swelling and tenderness around a new crown the new associate dentist has just put in.  Her overall tissue had improved 100%. Normal recall for her was 6 months, but she was still on a 3 month recall when she came in with this one tooth around it irritated. I really like the Dentist, and his new associate. The new associate and I had made no plans or discussed what would happen in the event I found, what appeared to be an “Iatrogenic” case. The words means “I began it”. . .something the dentist did or the dental hygienist did, has caused the problem for the patient.

The last case I ran into in another office, was something that could become a malpractice situation. He was a new patient who had been given an expensive diagnosis, then turned over to me, to do the first cleaning. I had never seen a mouth in this kind of condition, with not only calculus around so many teeth, but also many were mobile…the disease had carried it destruction of the bone, so many were loose. The Dentist had ignored the very foundation of the teeth, yet proposed an expensive plan to the patient, without warning him, these particular teeth, might have to be extracted, due to the infection around them, that had destroyed the bone. I resigned. I could not be a part of what I would call malpractice.  I had worked with my husband for 14 years, and no dentistry was done before we had the proper care of the bone, the cornerstone for building and restoring the teeth. What good would it do to put a huge amount of money into teeth that are lose, due to bone disease, and the teeth would have to be extracted. I had to excuse myself from his office, I quit.

The second case was irregular, and also with a new dentist I was working for, because the infection around the tooth, was nowhere else, but around the tooth the dentist had crowned. 

I had an idea, from a precious occasion, that this new associate was going to “blame” the patient . . .for not doing her part in flossing and brushing. She was on a three month recall for me to clean her teeth. It was not necessary for the dentist to check for cavities until the next appointment.

But the patient felt my anxiety and called back and said, “The dentist had not examined her teeth.”  Instead of the new dentist, inviting her back for an examination . . .he blamed me for not calling him in on an exam. . .I thought, “it would be better for him to blame me” than for him to blame the patient.

My inability to openly “discuss” the problem I faced in diagnosing an infection around the dentistry he did, would cause me to turn his patients over to our other dental hygienist. 

My problem,  began with a Mother, who would “discuss” her plan for building our new house, as we ate in our new house, while Daddy had suggested a plan, to move closer to his work in Denver, at the Denver Post.

Mom wanted him to know, her plan was superior to his. Daddy had found a five story old mansion downtown, loaded with furniture, but Mom didn’t see the JOY of cleaning it. Mom’s plan was to be in one of he new sections of Denver to the South with a new Junior/Senior Highschool, where we could all go to school at Thomas Jefferson, in South Denver.

In time, the Old Mansion sold for $20,000, which was the same price they paid for the new house in the newer Southern Hills area south of town. But, the antique furniture was auctioned off for $20,000.00. “That night when Daddy presented his case for the Old Mansion, Mother shut up. But I had left the supper table in tears, THE DISCUSSION, had ended and PEACE was quietly RESTORED. (Daddy’s solution was superior when it came to money, he had won. But Mother’s solution ended with her selling our house, after auctioning off the furniture and she made $20,000, but the real winner, was Mom. When she sold the house for $350,000.00 and drove off into the sunset, to move to California where we had all settled, she pulled up stakes, and bought a nice little house near us. I think MOM won, in the end. I will have to joke with my dad about that when we get to Heaven. lol)

Yet, Mother’s solution was built on the current situation in Denver in integrating “blacks”. . .and Cindy the youngest had spent one year in a Junior High, with the fear and anticipation of fear going to school. Mom wanted her to go into the new Junior/High School, with a larger variety of new kids, without gangs.

Years later, both my sisters and I had taken meds and counseling because we had not learned the fine art of “discussion” and finding “ways” to navigate in a crisis….because NOW, the HOPE IS ALWAYS…we will find a solution. . .An unresolved problem is worse than facing the fact, we can resolve this misunderstanding. A resolution brings HOPE, and even promotes a future of finding solutions, rather than awkward silence.

And for me there is no better SOLUTION, than finding an all loving, caring, MEEK SAVIOUR, who died, came alive and took his flight to heaven, telling his disciples to GO and make more disciples, Who worked with his disciples, showing them like a father, like a parent, how to love people, as they are, and in the end, the friendship is saved.

Friendship is the goal. To show our patients and friends that we care, and take responsibility for our work. But we do not pass the buck when it comes to finding a solution, and if our office could not find HOPE for their problem, we  knew of specialists WHO could. . . AND we could and can refer you to all caring, all loving and all understanding Father, WHO can send us HIS HOLY SPIRIT, WHO can send us HIS ANGELS, WHO can send us FRIENDS WHO are patient and UNDERSTANDING. Yes, we can expect MIRACLES…and provide NEW PLANS…NEW innovation’s.

WHO? Who has your Heavenly Father sent to YOU? Has your life improved with Love, Joy and Peace? Then you know WHO is behind the healing of your heart, body mind and soul.

-And THE VOICE OF PROPHECY is WHO has free Bible guides, to help you find comfort and truth in God’s Word.

P.S. Our study on Revelation’s 1,000 years is also WHO….you can call to request additional Bible Study Guides, through IT IS WRITTEN 1-888-664-9573 or itiswritten.com/biblestudy.

I can speak from experience about the fun of doing Bible Studies with new folks, who are now OLD FRIENDS. The first time I sent a Bible Study to my boyfriend at Kearny State Teachers College, now part of the University of Nebraska, at Kearny, he ended up becoming a teacher of the Bible, and with is wife, also a teacher, The Harlans’ retired after dedicating their lives to help children know they have a FRIEND IN HIGH PLACES.

I too wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to help students find a friend in Jesus. I even dropped out of dental hygiene, and applied at another college to finish my Education degree. While in the Administration Office, a student I knew, came down the stairs with his brief case. Rog seemed to think, it would take more time to finish Education, that continue two years and finish Dental Hygiene. I could always go back and finish my EDUCATION major, which I did begin, later on in life.

He thought we should take a ride, to Palm Springs and have a date shake…they make them there. His concern for my future, seemed to be connected with his. Rather than go into the field I preferred, I continued in Dental Hygiene and became his partner, wife, bookkeeper and office manager. My years of working in other offices made me aware of what “we” would want in a new building for ourselves. GOD moves in wonderous ways.

Who would think, I would write a book, then another, than another, and now the revised edition is being printed of THE RED HORSE, War Against God’s Government. Where the final chapters of Revelation 11 take two witnesses to Heaven. Here it is, April 30, 2021 at 7:43 A.M.

P.S. Someone, probably me, took out the pages of Sons and Daughters of God for April 28, 29, and 30. That is why you are hearing some new ideas, from me.

I remember sending those pages to someone. . . .but the text I sent was this. . . .

Isa_32:17  And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

And I found another that works for me too!

Jer_51:10  The LORD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the LORD our God.

We Are Elevated, Ennobled, Refined, We Are to Behave Ourselves Wisely

Photo by Hoover Tung on Pexels.com The Wise Old Owl sat in the Oak, The More He saw the less he spoke, the less he spoke the more he knew, why can’t I be like YOU?

“I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.” Psalm 101:2

“None are to be forward or obtrusive, but we are quietly to live out our religion, with an eye single to the glory of God. . . . The we shall shine as lights in the world, without noise or friction. None need fail; for One is with them who is wise in counsel, excellent in working, and mighty to accomplish His designs. He works through His agents, seen and unseen, human and divine. This work is a grand work, and will be carried forward to the glory of God, if all who are connected with it will make their works correspond to their profession of faith. Purity of thought must be cherished as indispensable to the work of influencing others. The soul must be surrounded by a pure, holy atmosphere, an atmosphere that will send to quicken the spiritual life of all who inhale it.

“Jesus is honored or dishonored by the words and deportment of his professed followers. The heart must be kept pure and holy, for out of it are the issues of life. If the heart is purified through obedience to the truth, there will be no selfish preferences, no corrupt motives. There will be no partiality, no hypocrisy. . . .

“In the present state of society, with the lax morals of not only youth but those of age and experience, there is great danger of becoming careless, and giving especial attention to favorites, and thus creating envy, jealousy, and evil-thinking. But few realize that they drive away the Spirit of God with their selfish thoughts and feelings, their foolish, trifling talk. . . . .If the grace of Christ were planted in their hearts, and striking its roots down deep into good soil, they would bear fruit of an altogether different character. . . .The converting power of God is alone sufficient to establish pure principles in the heart, so that the wicked on may find nothing to assail. . .Purity of speech, and true Christian courtesy should be constantly practiced.”

Sons and Daughters of God, p. 316 by Ellen White

P.S. At the end of the day, with worry between, with sadness, and a bit of fear, came the understanding, the simple misunderstanding, that a quiet conversation brought peace to my heart, today. I walked “within my house with a perfect heart” . . .at the end of the day, today. For this I am thankful.

He said, “Connie, if I die tonight, it’s been nice knowing you.”

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com After Terry said that, I returned the compliment. “Terry, if I die tonight, it’s been NICE KNOWING YOU!” true story. It made us laugh in a very healthy way.

There has been so much sorrow, pain and isolation, which makes the mind try to get concentrated on something positive, something good, that can come out of misery. But Terry’s love, continued to buoy me up, his desire to give me freedom, to remarry, to find someone else, was all about inviting me to move on. . . .and I loved him the more for his kindness, during his own “dementia” This kind of talk, could not be mental illness, is had to be from his heart to mine.

I wonder how many on their death bed, can be so aware of those who “love them” that they let them know, more about their own character, when they die and give you FREEDOM and LIBERTY.

It would appear the JESUS would say the same thing. I’m going to die, but be of GOOD CHEER, I love you enough to let you go, and ITS BEEN NICE KNOWING YOU…we can meet again in My Heaven.

I like to end my letters by, Connie Here, see you THERE, forever and a day!

What can I say to my family and friends, if I knew I was going away, from them, to The Mission Field and might not come back again? Yeah! ” If I die without saying GOOD BYE, Its been nice knowing you!”

Over and Out, Connie here in B.C. Beaver City, Nebraska, where we have more cows than people.

P.S. Don’t you just LOVE that COUNTRY AIR? We have skunks too.

In Loving Memory of Terry Newton, July 26, 1940-October 25.2020

P.S. He always made the bed. . .

Abraham Ever Displayed Unselfish Courtesy

This artists rendition of Abraham seems to highlight his wealth rather than as a nomad. . .with the rigors of moving herds of sheep and goats up and down steep slopes . . .A Shepherd.

Genesis 13:9 “Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or is thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.”

“Abraham’s household comprised more than a thousand souls. Those who were led by his teachings to worship the true God found a home in his encampment; and here, as in a school, they received such instruction as would prepare them to be representatives of the faith. Abrahams ‘s affection for his children and his household led him to guard their religious faith, to impart to them a knowledge of the divine statutes, as the most precious legacy he could transmit to them, and through them to the world. (My own father had a burden be our example of a husband and father to the four of us, and to his wife, My Mother.) All were taught that we were under the rule of the God of heaven. There was to be no oppression on the part of parents, and no disobedience on the part of children. God’s law had appointed to each his duties, and only in obedience could any secure happiness and prosperity.

“His own example, the silent influence of his daily life, (This too was the meekness of My Father, Manford Ordelheide, THE SILENT INFLUENCE OF his daily life) was a constant lesson. The unswerving integrity, the benevolence and unselfish courtesy which had won the admiration of kings, were displayed in the home. There was a fragrance about the life, a nobility and loveliness of character, which revealed to all that he was connected with heaven. He did not neglect the soul of the humblest servant. In his household there was not one law for the master, and one for the servant; a royal way for the rich, and another for the poor. All were treated with justice and compassion. [This is the first time, I’ve seen the traits of my father in connection with a wise leader like Abraham.]

“He was a man of faith, who always followed principles of the strictest integrity. In all his business transactions he was courteous and honorable. His life was controlled by Christian politeness, and he placed the service of the Lord before all else. He would not swerve a hair’s breadth from pure, Christian principles. (I have to admit the hardest part for my dad to parent us, came later in life, when had to judge between right and wrong, between my brother and I. At that point, I had two sons, my brother had two children. Franklin was returning from the mission field, and some 16 years devoted to serving God in Guam, Hong Kong, and Malawi. His devotion in serving God with a missionary salary, would bring him home to make money to put his children through college. And he came, he saw, he wanted to live and make money in our town and that included purchasing our job, out from under us. The last years of my dad’s life, dying of cancer, was worse because he knew my brother had hurt me. But daddy made the call. He admitted my brother had hurt me and our family. My husband was forced “to give his dental practice” to my brother. But the story didn’t end there. Being forced out of our town, our jobs, and finding new jobs, we became estranged. . .and it took a toll on our family. It ended in divorce. And I could understand why my husband chose to find another wife. . . .I was devastated!

My husband was an only child, he had not learned the pecking order of sibling’s. He was not prepared for “a family” to hurt each other. However, I knew my place on the totem pole, was at the bottom. Nothing my husband could do, would bring me to the top of the Totem Pole. I had learned “my place” as the “least” accomplished, among my brother, The Dentist, my sister, The Teacher, my youngest sister, The Nurse Practioner of the Year. . . My lowly spot at the kitchen table, was to love and enjoy their humor as we were encouraged by Mother, who asked, “What is your philosophy?” I can easily say, my sibling’s had a higher place on the Totem Pole, and they are still admirable. I can esteem them higher than me.

However, my husband had not been among a family, that played and worked together like we did. Our Family Motto was, “We all work together until the work is done and then we all play together.” This, in latter life, meant we got the breakfast on, cleaned up, packed the lunch, and headed off to the wild blue yonder in the old red jeep named Clyde. Jeeping on the backroads in Colorado, was both a history, mining, mineral exploration and singing, and story telling trip. It was the family fun, that my husband had not experienced. He loved it. He loved playing golf with dad, as mom and I shopped the tourist spots in towns near Leadville, Colorado.

Abraham had the same problem. A time came for that large family to break up into smaller divisions. Lot was given the choice of the fertile land in the valley, or to choose the hilly steep ridge and ravines where Abraham grazed his stock.

“It is in the power of everyone to practice true Christlike courtesy.”

Sons and Daughters of God, for November 10, by Ellen White, weaving my family into the picture. . .perhaps explains why I am who I am? Had I not experienced divorce and my husbands sheltered life as an only child, I would not have the experience of wanting to be loved, like I was as member of our family. Family. . .and Abraham gave the choice to Lot. . .out of courtesy.

Lot chose the city life, and Abraham continued to climb among he hills with his sheep. I think this is why I came back to the country. . .the silence last night, the thunder cloud was showing lightening to the west. The storm would move down the Sappa, and then. . . .the hail hit, like marbles on the roof, its damaging effect, is something I’ve yet to explore. In the garden I had planted the little two leaf cucumbers, and I was hoping they were not pounded into the ground. I had surrounded the tomatoes by mulch, hopefully their little leaves are not all broken. Then I remembered the neighbor who said, he had planted his whole back yard, and the hail came and destroyed everything.

Stay tune to see what happens when the sun comes up . . .I can report tomorrow. . Until then over and out in Beaver City, Nebraska where we have more cows than people.

In Gandhi’s teachings in Wikipedia

The cow protection was a symbol of animal rights and of non-violence against all life forms for Gandhi. He venerated cows, and suggested ending cow slaughter to be the first step to stopping violence against all animals.[32] He said: “I worship it and I shall defend its worship against the whole world”, and stated that “The central fact of Hinduism is cow protection.”[32] Thus the Holy Cow still roams the streets of India.

Through The Study of The Prophetess Ellen White She Wrote:

James and Ellen White

June 20, 1903: “There are many with whom the Sprit of God is striving. The time of God’s destructive judgment is the time of mercy for those who have no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched; His hand is still stretched out to save.” Life Sketches p. 412 Ellen White.

Under the date of August 3, 1903, Mrs. White further wrote regarding a sensational report: “How comes the word that I have declared that New York is to be swept away by a tidal wave? This I have never said. I have said, as I looked at the great building going up there, story after story; ‘What terrible scenes will take place when the LORD SHALLARISE to shake terribly the earth! Then the words of Revelation 18:1-3 will be fulfilled.’ The whole of the eighteenth chapter of Revelation is a warning of what is coming on the earth. Scenes will take place the fearfulness of which we cannot image.” Life Sketches p. 411-412 Ellen White

Rev 18:24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. 

The attack against JESUS CHRIST The Prophet, has never stopped. Until we get to know Him, and see His love for all humanity, we cannot JUDGE HIM!

No one in their right mind would ever desire to become a prophet or prophetess . . .they were never treated with dignity and respect. They seem to be someone, who is mocked, as others feel guilty around them, and guilt leads to shame, and shame leads us to the one who took OUR SHAME UPON HIMSELF, so we might know of HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US!. Then when you know JESUS, you are His representative, and you will feel humble to know Him.

Am I talking to someone who understands guilt, shame and pain? You have a friend in High Places, who knows what it feels like to mistreated by those who call you family and friends.

Pro_11:6  The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.

The Treasures of God’s Grace Are for Us: We Are Changed From Glory to Glory

Self-sacrificing Love

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18. 

Where the SPIRIT of THE LORD IS, THERE IS LIBERTY. . .what would make a man, die for me?

A man was taken into the Concentration Camp during WW II. Sewn inside his coat were the papers he had written to make a book. He had found “liberty” in the SPIRIT of the Lord. His exact words I don’t remember, but he had found PEACE with GOD’s Spirit, because he knew, they could take his life, but they could not take HIS SOUL.

When enlightened by the Spirit of God, the believer beholds the perfection of Jesus, and beholding this perfection, he rejoices with JOY UNSPEAKABLE. In self he/she sees sin and helplessness; in the Redeemer sinlessness and infinite power. The sacrifice that Christ made in order that He might impart to us HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS—this is a theme upon which we may dwell with deeper and still deeper enthusiasm. SELF IS NOTHING; JESUS IS EVERYTHING. . . .

“The transforming power of grace can make me a partaker of the DIVINE NATURE. On Christ the GLORY OF GOD has shone, and by looking upon Christ, contemplating His self-sacrifice, remembering that in Him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, the believer is drawn closer and closer to the SOURCE OF POWER. . .

“How essential that we have the enlightenment of the Spirit of God; for thus only can we see the glory of Christ, and by beholding become changed from character to character in and through faith in Christ. . . . He has grace and pardon for every soul. As by faith we look to Jesus, our faith pierces the shadow, and we adore God from His wondrous love in giving us Jesus the COMFORTER. . . .(as I typed that word “comforter” I felt the muscle tension in my neck go away. And for me to feel the loss of pain, is a miracle. I did not know I was tense.)

“The sinner, [that is me] may become a CHILD OF GOD, an heir of heaven. He/she may rise from the dust, and stand forth arrayed in garments of light. [I wonder how that feels, GARMENTS OF LIGHT?] . . . At every step of advance, he/she sees NEW BEAUTIES IN CHRIST, and becomes more like Him in character.”

“The LOVE that was manifested toward him/her in the death of Christ, awakens a response of THANKFUL LOVE, and in answer to the sincere prayer, the believer is brought from grace to grace, from glory to glory, until by beholding Christ, he/she is changed into the same image. “[Again the tenseness in my shoulders was taken away.]

P.S. Giving myself time this morning at 5:40 a.m. because my “cat alarm clock” chooses to have breakfast before dawn, that calico cat with her nose split into two colors, orange and black, persuades me to wake up, get up, and go down stairs to feed her. She can be very persuasive with her whiskers tickling my hand.

And the connection with the peace and quiet, after she is fed, and the loving reminder of who died for me, brings the comfort, joy, love and peace that I need for a NEW DAY. Welcoming a new day, with sound of the birds who have moved back in after winter, is also a piece of heaven for me. (And that thought relaxes my shoulders) Am I now ready to face a NEW DAY? And where will my angel take me too? This I do not know, what duties he has planed for me.

After the Day of Rest on Sabbath, I was eager to clean the house, do the wash, vacuum the rug, and clean up. Now it is Monday, the garden awaits my decision to where and what seeds will be planted. . . This tending the garden, relaxes me too. I have something other than myself to think about, and it provides the diversion I need from what is coming. . .in my life.

I smile here. What if it is true, Decoding the Bible Prophecy of the 7 Thunders, that I published years ago, is true? There are two chosen people, who see their calling is to go to Israel. To bring out the hidden Ten Commandments, that are the “thing” inside the Ark of the Covenant, that show God’s KINGDOM can be run with joy and peace, when HIS LAW, proves HE CAN JUDGE OUR MOTIVES, by “what we covet.”

The last and final command of God, speaks to why our “actions” are centered around glorifying GOD. . .and in my case. . .why I painted a RED CROSS. . .as the ENTRY into the NEW JERUSALEM and its TREE OF LIFE.

The entry exam for Heaven, was purchased some 2000 years ago, at THE CROSS. It was there our Heavenly Father, turned away from the scene of the persecution, and death of HIS SON, which PURCHASED OUR LIBERTY and FREEDOM to love Him or leave them, the Family of God, the three in one GODHEAD, that includes their HOLY SPIRIT, like a Mother hen, who wants to see her children saved and loved so “we” can “meet again” in a time I call, “FOREVER AND A DAY.”

Looking beyond to today to Heaven, and standing by the TREE OF LIFE, looking into the WATER OF LIFE, and a HUGE CITY OF GOLD, and lush green grass, flowers, birds, smells, and friends, is where I want to meet each of you. . . so we can laugh at where GOD needed to TAKE US, to TEACH US, to HUMBLE US, to permit us to be the man and woman, He wants us to be.

I can only image the fun, the memories, the faults, the sins, the errors in judgment, that we have made, and have stretched our imagination to

what GOD wants us to do. . .so we can meet and greet in that NEW JERUSALEM CITY, that has a RIVER RUNNING THROUGH IT!

I don’t know what kind of campfire we could sit around, or what God’s hot rocks are, but Heaven seems conducive to talk and chat about how we got from “there” to “HERE.” We’ll ask the questions, in the bye and bye. He knows the reasons, He knows why, we needed guidance, before we could fly to see HIS NEW HEAVENS and be delighted, with knowing, HE UNDERSTANDS WHY…we had to be led by Our Shepherd, fed, and even spend time wondering….what lies ahead.

If there is no new heaven, no end of fuss and wars, than why not love this earth, and plan to stay here? . . .Even you, surely can image a better place, where we truly love our President, King, Lord and Master to sit down and talk with us, about why we love Him so!

If we could love our leaders, like I love Jesus, and justice and mercy would meet…I would rather sit at Jesus feet. No one could love us more than our Heavenly Father and His ‘son of man.’ I ask my comforter to be in charge of my life today, tomorrow and the rest of the way to Heaven. May He Take you and I to where we need me to go. Help us to see His face. Thank you, and so be it, amen.

The Treasures of God’s Grace Are for Us: We Have Received of God’s Fullness

Have we taken the beauty all around us for granted? Songs of the birds, flight of the butterfly, the warmth of the sun, refreshing air after the rain, the birth of a child, the Dandy lions in the grass? Seems God does have a sense of humor too. His forgiveness even when some betray Him, unknowingly.

And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. John 1:17

“Christ sought to save the world, not by conformity to it, but by revealing to the world the transforming power of the grace of God to mold and fashion the human character after the likeness of the character of Christ.

“Satan has represented God as selfish and oppressive, as claiming all, and giving nothing, as requiring the service of his creatures for His own glory, and making no sacrifice for their good. But the gift of Christ reveals the Father’s heart. . . . It declares that God’s hatred of sin is as strong as death, His love for the sinner is stronger than death. Having undertaken our redemption, He will spare nothing, however dear, which is necessary for the completion of His work. No truth which is essential for our salvation is withheld, no miracle of mercy is neglected, no divine agency is left unemployed. Favor is heaped upon favor, gift upon gift. The whole treasury is opened to those He seeks to save. Having collected the riches of the universe, and laid open the resources of infinite power, He gives them all into the hand of Christ, and says, All these are for man. Use these gifts to convince him that there is no love greater than Mines in earth or heaven. His greatest happiness will be found in loving Me.

“The father appreciates every soul soul whom His Son has purchased by the gift of His life. Every provision has been made for us to receive divine power, which will enable us to overcome temptations. Through obedience to all God’s requirements the souls is preserved unto eternal life.


Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for April 26

P.S. The timing of these words to me, at this TIME INLIFE, at this juncture between good and evil, with GOD wanting to bestow on us, the help which JESUS alone can provide….gives me strength to TRUST THEM MORE . . .This Father and This Son, invite us to share THEIR HOLY SPIRIT WITH US. But tapping into the supply of their full blessings, is something I’d like to try. . . .sounds like an adventure!

This image of God the Father, reminds me of the dad who says, “Bring your friends home? Sure bring them all!”

The Treasures of God’s Grace Are for Us to REJOICE in the RICH TREASURES OF GRACE

The OMNIPOTENT GOD, by Michaelangelo shows God separating light from darkness. . .

And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is among you. Deuteronomy 26:11

“Thanksgiving and praise should be expressed to God for temporal blessings and for whatever comforts He bestows upon us. God would have every family that He is preparing to inhabit the eternal mansions above, give glory to Him for the rich treasures of His grace. Were children, in the home life, educated and trained to be grateful to the Giver of all good things, we would see an element of heavenly grace manifest in our families. Cheerfulness would be seen in the home life, and coming from such homes, the youth would bring a spirit of respect and reverence with them into the school-room, and into the church. There would be an attendance in the sanctuary where God meets with his people, a reverence for all the ordinances of His worship, and grateful praise and thanksgiving would be offered for all the gifts of His providence. . . .

“Every temporal blessing would be received with gratitude, and every spiritual blessing become doubly precious because the perception of each member of the household had become sanctified by the Word of truth. The Lord Jesus is very near to those who thus appreciate His gracious gifts, tracing all their good things back to the benevolent, loving, care-taking God, and recognizing Him as the great Fountain of all comfort and consolation, the inexhaustible Source of Grace.

“If we would give more expression to our faith, rejoice more in the blessings that we know we have,–the great mercy and love of God, —we should have more faith and greater joy. No tongue can express, no finite mind can conceive, the blessing that results from appreciating the goodness and love of God. Even on earth we may have joy as a wellspring, never failing, because fed by the streams that flow from the throne of God.”

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, by E. G. White for April 25

P.S. I don’t think Jonah being tossed in the whale could appreciate what all God was doing, to get him on the right track to be a witness for GODS POWER in Nineveh. When Jonah saw the “gentiles” fearful of God, and His power to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, the King put coverings over himself and his cattle. . .knowing God could send down “fire and brimstones” like they saw around the Dead Sea. But Jonah was in a quandary, what would he do with so many recent converts to the God of Judah? The son of Kings?

Will we see another outpouring of THE FEAR OF GOD, that make us laugh, when we realize, HE LOVES US? That is why He must seem so FEARFUL. . .to shake us up…to WAKE US UP….to see, we do not want HIM to be led like a Lamb to the slaughter….IT IS BETTER TO HAVE MERCY…..than sacrifice our GOD. We must forgive those who sin against us. We must show others HOW TO LIVE, self-sacrificing lives. . . like Jesus did.

Have mercy on me a sinner. . . .he, she, they said.

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23:23.

In Answer to the Question: Can The Rock produce “Living Water?”

There is Geological, Archeological, Physical, Biblical, and Prophetic evidence that THE ROCK, is THE ROCK OF AGES, and it did produce Water from THE ROCK Moses was to strike at Mount Sinai.

Looming over the desert in Saudi Arabia is The Rock, that split open, to pour out water, to some 600,000 men plus women and child and animals. Moses was to “strike” the ROCK the first time, but later, Moses was to “Speak to the Rock.” The second time Moses “sinned” and became angry, at the people for thinking GOD, could not provide them water. Moses made himself, equal to God which is a sin. THE ROCK, provides the Living Water of Truth. Do not strike the “rock” because it is the Symbol of Jesus Christ the Source of Our Salvation, Our Messiah.

If we knew everything, we would be GOD. Being or attempting to be equal with God, or even thinking we could be “THE ROCK” that produces the living water of life, is about as adventurous as those who even “think” their God, their Creator makes us weaklings.

Humility and genuine love for Our Messiah, would have prevented the Jews from killing, the son of Mary and Joseph. Jesus came from the tribe that made King David, the tribe of Judah, not the priestly tribe of Levi.

Can “the created” be superior to the “created?”

This is the reason for our existence, to prove to ourselves, that even Lucifer, the created superior Archangel, who guarded the Ten Commandments in Heaven, began to “think” he wanted to change the times and laws of God’s Government, which are based on the FREEDOM and LIBERTY Jesus gives to us, through His life, death and resurrection, and soon coming again.

THE ROCK, the Cornerstone, the arches made by the Romans, began to unite a Kingdom by bridges and roads, that could cross the Alps. And expand water canals around the then known world.

The cornerstone (or foundation stone or setting stone) is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. All other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure. Wikipedia

The Treasures of God’s Grace Are for Us: Let Us Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne of Grace, that we may Obtain Mercy, and Find Grace to help in TIME OF NEED.” Hebrews 4:16

The paradox is also known as an antinomy, is a logically self-contradictory statement or a statement that runs contrary to one’s expectation.

“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3:19-22

The Scroll and the Lamb
Rev 5:1-5  And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 

“Jesus knows the needs of His children, and He loves to listen to their prayers. Let the children shut out the world and and everything that would attract the thoughts from God, and let the feel that they are alone with God, that His eye looks into the inmost heart, and reads the desire of the soul, and that they may talk with God. In humble faith you may claim His promises, and feel that although you have nothing in yourself whereby you may claim the favor God, because of the merits and righteousness of Christ, you may become boldly to the Throne of Grace, and find help in time of need. There is nothing that can make the soul so strong to resist the temptations of Satan in the great conflict of life, as to seek God in humility, laying before Him your soul in all its helplessness, expecting that He will be your helper and your defender.

“With the trusting faith of little child, we are to come to our heavenly Father, telling Him of all our needs. He is always ready to pardon and help. The supply of divine wisdom is inexhaustible, and the Lord encourages us to draw largely from it. The longing that we should have for spiritual blessings is described in the words, “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” We need a deeper soul-hunger for the rich gifts that heaven has to bestow.

“We are to hunger and thirst after righteousness.

“He desires to bestow on the children of men the riches of an eternal inheritance. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.”

“O that we might have a consuming desire to know God by experimental knowledge, to come into the audience chamber of the Most High, reaching up the hand of faith, and casting our helpless souls upon the One might to save. His loving kindness is better than life.”

“He desires to bestow on the children of men the riches of an eternal inheitance. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.”

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, by E. G. White for April 24

The antichrist, seeks to sit on GODS THRONE OF GRACE, and change the times and laws of God. This is war against God’s Kingdom, and does not seek the word of His Holy Spirit and denies His free gift of Grace. When we continue in sin, continue to do evil to others, even hurting ourselves, we make Jesus cry.

“But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.” Isaiah 63:10

Dan 7:25  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Dan 7:26  But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. Dan 7:27  And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. 

This JUDGMENT HOUR, ends with God’s wrath. . .the seven last plagues ends with hail.

Rev 11:19  And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thundering’s, and an earthquake, and great hail. 

The final judgment, opens the Temple of God in Heaven, there is Ark of His Covenant, His Testament, His Words written in stone, that Lucifer wanted to change. But if the Covenant could be changed, JESUS WOULD NOT HAVE TO DIE.

Sin cannot enter into God’s New Jerusalem. Those who wish to see Jesus crucified again, so they can continue in sin against Him, do not see the LOVE OF GOD, for HIS SON, and the horror of watching His Son die.

What Father would crucify his own son? David, saw his sons kill each other. And David knew it was his sin, that brought the punishment’s on His sons.

No longer will the “sins of the father” be passed into the Sons and Daughters of God. Each son and daughter will stand before His Throne. The sins of the fathers will not put punishments’ on their children.

Heb 6:4  For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 
Heb 6:5  And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, Heb 6:6  If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Heb 6:7  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Heb 6:8  But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
