Joseph Chose Life’s Best, Samson Did Not

Joseph and his coat of many colors, drew attention to His Father’s special favored son, which caused some great jealousy among his many brothers, so much so, they wished he would be gone….

“For he that soweth to this flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the SPIRIT shall of the SPIRIT reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6:8

“Few temptations are more dangerous or more fatal to young men than the temptation to sensuality and none of if yielded to will prove so decidedly ruinous to soul and body for time and eternity. The welfare of his entire future is suspended upon the decisions of a moment. Joseph calmly casts his eyes to heaven for help, slips off his loose outer garment, leaving it in the hand of his tempter, and while his eye is lighted with determined resolve in the place of unholy passions, he exclaims, “How can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?”

“Samson in his peril had the same source of strength as had Joseph. He could choose the right or the wrong as he pleased. But instead of taking hold of the strength of God, he permitted the wild passions of his nature to have full sway. The reasoning powers were perverted, and the morals corrupted. God had called Samson to a position of great responsibility, honor, and usefulness; but he must first learn to govern by first learning to obey the laws of God. . . .Samson, under temptations, which he had brought upon himself, gave loose rein to passion. The path which he entered upon he found to end in shame, disaster, and death. What a contrast to the history of Joseph!

“Amidst the snares to which all are exposed, they need strong and trustworthy defenses on which to rely. . . . The shield of grace can preserve all unconquered by the temptations of the enemy, though surrounded with the most corrupting influences. By firm principle, and unwavering trust in God, their virtue and nobleness of character can shine, and, although surrounded with evil, no taint need be left upon their virtue and integrity.”

Sons and Daughters of God for June 29, 2022.

Just as if: God has sent us a prophet . . . from the Jews.

Psa_126:5  They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Psa_132:9  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
Psa_132:16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

Isa 66:19  And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles. 
Isa 66:20  And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD. 
Isa 66:21  And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD. 

P.S. Rev_12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rev_19:10  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation is the book given by Jesus to his servant John on the Island of Patmos in 95 A.D. The Testimony of Jesus is Revelation, it is the Spirit of Prophecy.

In order for the 3rd temple to be built, the Ten Commandments of God must come out of hiding. They are the archeological evidence, The Ten Commandments are engraved by the finger of God, is the convincing TRUTH, Jesus Christ is Our King of the JEWS first, then to the Gentiles, and to the whole Universe.

The song we will sing is the Hallelujah Chorus.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Rev 19:6  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Hallelujah!

Rev 19:7  Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 
Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 
Rev 19:9  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 

P.S. The joy, great anticipation, the welcoming of Christ, the end of slavery to “a man” 666 exposed on the Temple Mount. . . is soon to invigorate the world to how cunning the snake was with Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden!

Could the devil attempt to deceive the very elect? And God knew this, so He prepares a plan for the last days to awaken our eyes to not be deceived like the Pharisees of old. . . nor to be sad like the Sadducees’ who did not believe in the resurrection of Jesus!

The Fall of Babylon
Rev 18:1  And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. (Michael the Archangel, who has never lost a battle, is putting his foot on the old serpent the devil.) Rev 18:2  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Rev 18:3  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 
Rev 18:4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev 18:5  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 

Michael the Archangel fought Lucifer the great red dragon in Heaven and is about to put His foot on Lucifer to end the war that began in Heaven. Hallelujah!


Weighed in the balance and found wanting… also means “our righteousness is like filthy rags. . . we need Jesus Our Saviour and His Righteousness, so no man or woman can BOAST. . . . of being superior to GOD. . . no matter how you think you are or I am.

I AM is the name of God sent to Pharaoh, when God poured out the plagues in Egypt that set the slaves free . . . .for you and me too!

“Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.” 2 Corinthians 8:21.

If everyone were honest, we would not have to even worry about crime or stealing.

“In all business transactions, we are to let the light shine decidedly. There is to be no sharp practice. Everything is to be done with the strictest integrity. Better consent to lose something financially than to gain a few shillings by sharp practice. We shall lose nothing in the end by fair dealing. We are to live the law of God in our world and perfect a character after the divine similitude. All business with those in the faith and those not in the faith is to be transacted on square righteous principles. Everything is to be seen in the light of God’s law, everything done without fraud, without duplicity, without one tinge of guile.

“For a Babylonish robe and a paltry treasure of gold and silver, Achan consented to seel himself to evil, to bring upon his soul the curse off God, to forfeit his title to a rich possession in Canaan, and lost all prospect of the future, immortal inheritance in the earth made new. A fearful price indeed he paid for his ill-gotten gains.

“Deal honestly and righteously in this present evil world. Some will be honest when they see that honesty will not endanger their worldly interest, but all who act from this principle will have their names blotted out of the book of life.

“Strict honesty must be cultivated. We can go through the world but once. We cannot come back to rectify any mistakes. Therefore every move made should be with godly fear and careful consideration. . . .

“When God makes up His jewels, the true, the frank, the honest, will be His chosen ones His treasures. Angels are preparing crowns for such and light from the throne of God will be reflected in its splendor from these star-gemmed diadems.”

God sees us as jewels in His crown. Gods’ use of jewels in the Foundations stores of the New Jerusalem, remind me of the gem work inlaid in the Taj Mahal, India.

Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 

Imagine gemstones inlaid in marble, adorning the New Jerusalem. . . .

Once again, God is preparing an EPIC DECISION to end crime . . .bring good, honest, true folks back to Heaven . . .

Rev 10:7  But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. 
Rev 10:8  And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. 
Rev 10:9  And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 

SWEET as HONEY sounds good……however, why does it first make my stomach feel sick?

Have we lost sight of God’s Kingdom, and Jesus Christ Our Redeemer, the King of Jews, crucified by the Romans, and offending the High Priest?

Has the real Jesus been taken up to heaven in a cloud?

So, God’s plan is to take two forgiven sinners “up” to heaven in a cloud, to prove, He keeps His promise to redeem us in Revelation 11?

Rev 11:7  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. Rev 11:8  And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Rev 11:9  And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. Rev 11:10  And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 
Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. Rev 11:12  And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. Rev 11:13  And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. 

Good news, God is sending two witnesses to die, come alive and be taken up to heaven. When I told my mom this prophecy . . . she said, “Connie if you get to heaven before I do, save me a chair.” lol

Bad news seven thousand men are slain. . . .in an earthquake. . .a huge earthquake . . . .so huge the WORLD WILL KNOW GOD has SPOKEN like THUNDER. . . . as He did from Mount Sinai, when the voice of the TRUMPET sounded like the voice of Our Messiah. . . .Jesus Christ.

God turns His Kingdom over to the Saints. . . . who are giving all the GLORY TO GOD!

This generation shall not pass away, but we will see the GLORY OF GOD, Jesus Christ’s ability to save to the utmost all who call upon His name.

Be there, be ready, be faithful to God’s son, Jesus Christ!

Amen, the time is coming when we make out choice to love and obey OUR GOD!

Divine Wisdom

Oil lamp from Jerusalem. . . used by the Ten Virgins . . . awaiting THE KING OF THE JEWS.

“For wisdom is better than rubies, and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” Proverbs 8:11.

“If Adam and Eve had never touched the forbidden tree, the Lord would have imparted to them knowledge,-knowledge upon which rested NO CURSE of sin, a knowledge that would have brought them everlasting joy. The only knowledge they gained by their disobedience was knowledge of sin and its results. . . .

“Age after age, the curiosity of men has led them to seek for the tree of knowledge; and often they think they are plucking fruit most essential, when, like Solomon’s research, they find it altogether vanity and nothingness in comparison with that SCIENCE of True Holiness which will open to them the gates of the city of God. The human ambition has been seeking for that kind of knowledge that will bring to them glory and self-exaltation and supremacy. Thus Adam and Eve were worked upon by satan until God’s restraint was snapped asunder, and their education under the teacher of lies began in order that they might have the knowledge which God had refused them.

“True wisdom is a treasure as lasting as eternity. Many of the world’s so-called wise men are wise only in their own estimation. Content with the acquisition of worldly wisdom, they never enter the garden of God, to become acquainted with the treasures of knowledge contained in His holy Word. Supposing themselves to be wise, they are ignorant concerning the wisdom which all must have who gain eternal life. . . . The unlearned man, if he knows God and Jesus Christ, has a more enduring wisdom than has the most learned man who despises the instruction of God.

“Divine wisdom is to be a lamp to your feet. . . . . Everything that can be shaken will be shaken; but rooted and grounded in the truth, you will abide with those things that cannot be shaken.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for June 25, 2022

P.S. Sorry for missing my blogs, as the computer crashed. I need to hear these daily revivals myself. “Everything that can be shaken will be shaken; but rooted and grounded in the truth, you will abide with those things that can’t be shaken.”

You cannot take away my FREEDOM, because it was purchased by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ. Give me liberty or give me death.

We Choose to Please God in All We Do With Recreation that Results in JOY!

“But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for JOY, because Thou defendest them. Let them also that love they Name be joyful in thee.” Psalms 5:11

“The enemy of righteousness has every kind of pleasure prepared for youth in all conditions of life, and they are not presented alone in crowded cities, but in every spot inhabited by human beings. Satan loves to secure the youth in his ranks as soldiers. The arch-fiend well knows with what material he has to deal with, and he has displayed his infernal wisdom in devising customs and pleasures for the youth which will separate their affections from Jesus Christ. The various amusements of society have been the ruin of thousands and tens of thousands who, had it not been for these attractions, would have been obedient children, respectful to their parents, upright, pure, and noble in their pursuits and in their character.

“Should Christ come among the assembly who were absorbed in their plays and frivolous amusements, would the solemn melody of His voice be heard in benediction, saying, “Peace be to this house”? How would the Saviour of the world enjoy these scenes of gaiety and folly?”

“Pride and ambition are never satisfied, but those who are truly wise will find substantial and elevating pleasure in the source of enjoyment that God has placed within the reach of all.

“It is the privilege and duty of Christians to seek to refresh their spirits and invigorate their bodies by innocent recreation, with the purpose of using their physical and mental powers to the glory of God. Our recreations should not be scenes of senseless mirth, taking the form of the nonsensical. We can conduct them in such a manner as qualify us and them to more successfully attend to the duties devolving upon us as Christians. . . . The religion of Christ is cheering and elevating in its influence.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for June 19, 2022.

Gen 23:19  And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan. 

The Muslim minarets were added before 1967 as the Muslim religion began to emerge around 500 A.D. with the prophet Mohammed and a god named Allah…who encourages the destruction of “the infidels”. . .

We Do All in the Name of Jesus

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving THANKS TO GOD and the FATHER by him.” Colossians’ 3:17

“The Lord requires that every human agent shall do his best, and those that do their best will have the greatest personal satisfaction, and will bring the greatest satisfaction to those who have an interest in them. The youth need to realize that they need a deep experience in the things of God. Mere surface work will be of no benefit to them. You need to bring THE LIGHT of God’s Word into your Heart, that you may search it with a lighted candle. . . .

“When you associate together, you may be a help and a blessing one to another if you surround yourselves with an influence that is divine, but there are those who have grave defects which are gaining a deeper hold upon them, and which, if not overcome, will drive the Spirit of God out of the heart. . . . Bible religion is not one influence among many others, but its influence is supreme, pervading and controlling every other influence. Bible religion is not one influence among many others, but its influence is supreme, pervading and controlling every other influence. Bible religion is to exercise control over life and conduct. It is not to be like a dash of color brushed here and there upon the canvas, but its influence is to pervade the whole life, as though the canvas were dipped into the color until every thread of the fabric was dyed a deep fast, unfading hue. The Lord will give you an understanding of all practical Bible truths as you bring them into your life practice. Principles of truth are to be carried out in your practice in everyday matters.

“Even in the smaller duties of common life, we are to make continual growth in grace, supplied with high and holy motives, powerful because they proceed from One who gave his life to furnish us with the incentive to be wholly successful in the formation of Christian character.

“Wherever the religion of Christ works, it will brighten and sweeten every detail of life with more than an earthly joy and a higher than earthly peace.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for June 18, 2022,

The details of my life can use more of Christ’s works, and I wish for a higher than earthly peace!

Is there ever a plateau in life where I cease to find more ways to improve, mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially?

We Choose to Please God, Not Ourselves

He gave His Word, to study for OURSELVES. . . to know HIM, like a good friend.

“And He that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please Him.” John 8:29

Notice the words of Jesus in red. Had He chosen to do so, He could have passed His days in a world of his own choosing, in ease and plenty, and claimed for Himself all the pleasures and joy the world could give Him. But He did not consider His own convenience. He lived not to please Himself, but to do good and lavish His blessings upon others.

“There is no help for man, woman, or child, who will not hear and obey the voice of duty; for the voice of duty is the voice of God. The eyes, the ears, and the heart will become unimpressible if men and women refuse to give heed to the divine counsel, and choose his way instead of God’s way. . . .

“The man or woman that leaves the place that God has given him or her, in order to please inclination, and acts on his own devised plan meets with disappointment because he/she has chosen his/her way instead of God’s way.

“Our heavenly Father is our Ruler, and we must submit to His discipline. We are members of His family. He has a right to our service. . . . We must not study to have our own way, but God’s way and God’s will. . . . Human beings suffer much because they step out of the path that God has chosen for them to follow. They walk in the sparks of the fire they themselves have kindled, and the sure result is an affliction, unrest, and sorrow, which they might have avoided if they had submitted their will to God. . . . Whatever path God chooses for us, whatever way he ordains for our feet, that is the only path of safety. . . . With the eye of faith, with childlike submission as obedient children, we must look to God, to follow His guidance, and difficulties will clear away. The promise is, “I will instruct thee and teach thee.”

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for June 17, 2022

As usual, I learn again…” HE WILL INSTRUCT US/YOU/ME and TEACH US/YOU/ME.”

Translated, Our Father, who art in Heaven, has a BIG JOB, in TRAINING US, HIS disciples, just how to be His disciple. Reminds me of Jesus working with Simon Peter. . . . who just obeyed and threw his net into the shallow water, knowing NO FISH GO INTO THE SHALLOW WATER during the day. . . . Peter just OBEYED, because JESUS told him too. . . . and what did Peter learn, when his fishing boat filled up with FISH?


Psa 32:8  I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 

Now U.F.O.’s are recognized they cannot duplicate the Second Coming of Jesus in the clouds. . . .

1Co_15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

1Co 15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 

Flesh and blood cannot enter Heaven. You and I will be given “new bodies” . . . and this body will live forever. . . that is why Jesus needed to be taken off this planet. He lives forever and a day. He can return us to our childhood days around eleven years old, and we shall grow up like calves in the stall.

The Great Day of the Lord
Mal 4:1  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 
Mal 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 
Mal 4:3  And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 
Mal 4:4  Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 
Mal 4:5  Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: Mal 4:6  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. 

John the Baptist was Elijah the prophet, who tried to fight the Roman curse in his day. His words were what brought him to the end of his life.

Are there teachers today who withhold the prophetic writings of Ellen White? Where her words declare, “the Ten Commandments engraved by the finger of God will come out hiding, they will be the convincing proof, Jesus Christ is Our Messiah.”

Imagine flying through the air like birds and winging our flights to worlds unknown?

TED TALKS describe the flight of Planet X, as movement up and down like the flight of angels coming our way to take us home to be with Jesus, and His Father, as we cherish His Holy Spirit of love and kindness.

How many will welcome a new body? New eyesight, new hearing, new movements we haven’t made since we were kids? No sickness, death, pain, or sorrow. We will be like teenagers again!

Daniel blessed for Choosing the Best!

Daniel wouLd later be thrown into the LIONS DEN, earlier Daniel and his friends only ate “pulse” which were vegetables, as they fasted and prayed.

“And at the end of the ten days (no meat and eating vegetables) their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the King’s meat.” Daniel 1:15

“The youth should stand in a position where their hearts may be wholly the Lord’s; where they are honoring God with their strength. God will then honor them by giving them knowledge and wisdom. Thus did Daniel in the courts of Babylon, standing true to principle amid the corruptions of the heathen. “Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the potion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank.”

“Daniel and his companions knew not what would be the result of their decision; they knew not but that it would cost them their lives, but they determined to keep the straight path of strict temperance even when in the courts of licentious Babylon.

“By the example of Daniel and his fellows in Babylon, we see that is impossible to reach the standard which the Lord would have His children reach, and practice an eas, accommodating kind of religion that leaves principle out, and is controlled by circumstances. Youth who would serve the God of heaven, cannot engage in worldly merriment, eat of enervating luxuries, or drink strong drink because it is set before them by the honored or wealthy men of the world, whom they fear to offend by refusing their favors. They may think that they have been especially honored and that courtesy demands the acceptance of the favors proffered to them, but loyalty to God must take precedence, and fear to offend the Lord of heaven must control the Christian. The king of Babylon thought that he was bestowing great favors upon Daniel and his fellows, but they had respect unto God’s commandments more than unto the favor of the king. . . . God honored Daniel, and He will honor every youth who takes the course that Daniel took in honoring God.

Sons and Daughters of God, by Ellen White for June 16,2022

P.S. I have been caught in those predicaments myself, wishing and knowing how to please others, and make them happy, is not a good excuse anymore! I needed this reminder!
