Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the
way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Psalms 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalms 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalms 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Psalms 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. Psalms 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
“Dangers best every path, and he who comes off conqueror will indeed have a triumphant song to sing in the city of God. Some have strong traits of character that will need to be constantly repressed. If kept under the control of the Spirit of God, these traits will be a blessing; but if not, they will prove a curse. If those who are now riding upon the wave of popularity do not become giddy, it will be a miracle of mercy. If they lean to their own wisdom, as so many thus situated have done, their wisdom will prove to be foolishness. But while they shall give themselves unselfishly to the work of God, never swerving in the least from principle, the Lord will throw about them the everlasting arms and will prove to them a mighty helper. . .
“This is a dangerous age for any man who has talents which can be of value in the work of God; for Satan is constantly plying his temptations upon such a person, ever trying to fill him with pride and ambition; and when God would use him, it is too often the case that he becomes independent and self-sufficient, and feels capable of standing alone. . . .
“Prayer and effort, effort and prayer, will be the business of your life. You must pray as though the efficiency and praise were all due to God, and labor as though duty were all your own. If you want power you may have it; it is waiting your draft upon it. Only believe in God, take Him at His word, act by faith, and blessings will come. . . .Those who have a humble, trusting, contrite heart, God accepts, and hears their prayer; and when God helps, all obstacles will be over come. . . .The blessings of heaven, obtained by daily supplication, will be as the bread of life to the soul and will cause them to increase in moral and spiritual strength, like a tree planted by the rivers of waters.” SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, Ellen White p. 345
Comments by Connie: In seeking my own humility, in trusting God over myself, these Ellen White Quotes have often given me just the right courage for the day. And this one in particular is a blessing to me. Bless all who come in the name of the Lord! May our voices be lifted to Praise Him today!
P.S. The reference to the Day of Atonement that comes with Jewish Lunar Calender, occurs this year on a week day, rather than a 7th Day. The Jews were given the PASSOVER, to commemorate the Exodus from Slavery to Pharaoh, and there will be a blood moon on Passover again this coming Yom Kippur. The Jews were given a chance to repent and be a peace with God and Man yearly. On September 22, 2015, this preparation requires self examination for sins against God. “Sin” against man is “sin” against God. If on the evening at mid night of the old year, when the Trumpets, or the horn of male lamb, a shofar is sounded, the Old Year is over,
However there is a Jewish tradition: If the male and females looking down at the Ten Commandments are in agreement, Daniel 12:2 will be fulfilled. And the dead in Christ from Adam and Eve will raise from their graves. You see the Jews are very quiet about having the blood of Jesus Christ with 24 chromosomes found by Ron Wyatt. They know Ron Wyatt talked with the four angels guarding the Ark of the Covenant. They know the names of the four angels, Michael the Arch Angel, who we know as Jesus Christ the only begotten son of the Father, the “angel” sent to the Children of Israel to bring them out of Egypt, back to the Promised Land, Gabriel the messenger sent to Daniel in Babylon, Uriel and Raphael still guard the Law of God on earth as it is in Heaven from the day Jesus/Michael the Archangel wrote The Law for the Universe on the “Rock” they believe is the color blue.
Could it be the Jews have saved the day, the calendar, the same way the Seventh Day Adventist figured out the Day of Atonement would come in the fall of 1844, when they discovered the principals of the 7 that “completes” our knowledge of God’s case against Lucifer, the created being who thought he wanted to live without rules of society and without bowing down to his creator.
I am not alone is knowing our world is reeling to and fro on its axis from the Tsunami in the China Sea. As the Holy Spirit is being denied it returns to God. The voice of the messenger, The Holy Spirit, is leaving us to request the messenger from God and we are returning to get it, out of our Bibles, where we should have been receiving our daily amount of “water of life” like TREES, whose roots go down deep to drink of water to stay alive, to grow, those fruits of the Spirit.
Daily, we meet our Maker, at His Throne of Grace to find help in times of need. He offers us the river of life, to vessels dry and weary, needing His love, protection, caring, and kindness, so we can offer this to our fellow man, like “messengers” of His Holy Spirit.
In “thinking” about God’s way to live, to be, to have and to hold us, it reminds us of our marriage to the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, Our Bridegroom and we His Bride, seeking to bring the Family of God under One Roof, One God, One Holy God, who loves us all more than we can imagine!
Have a Good and Godly Day with His Holy Spirit~ December 4, 2014
May we be in agreement with God on September 22, 2015, like the Jews, in repentance for our sins against man and God. So when the NEW YEAR COMES at midnight, we are ready for the dead in Christ to come alive, when they sound the Shofars. I would like to hug my daddy again! And meet my relatives in their new bodies, ready to be transferred to Heaven when Jesus comes.
We are each, sent with a commission to share His Holy Spirit on a daily basis, as His Children. We need each other. The phone rang, a young man from Grand Canyon Online Courses called. His Holy Spirit drew us into a conversation, he knew Ellen White, he had the PDF for GOD CARES II, he was eager to learn the prophecies of 9-12-2001 in Revelation 8:8,9. He inspired me with knowledge of so many being baptized in China. I inspired him with the prophecies of Ellen White and Mervyn Maxwell. The Holy Spirit is moving among the YOUTH and they will be the ones who finish the work for this generation! Praise the Lord for the young people!
