When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they
stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. (Pslams 17:2-8)
How can the Joy of Truth be Found Without Searching?
No man, woman, or youth can attain to Christian perfection and neglect the study of the words of
God. By carefully and and closely searching His words we shall obey the injunction [An injunction is an equitable remedy in the form of a court order that requires a party to do or refrain from doing specific acts. A party that fails to comply with an injunction faces criminal or civil penalties, including possible monetary sanctions and even imprisonment.] of Christ, :Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me.” This search enables [1.) to make able; give power, means, competence, or ability to; authorize: 2.) to make possible or easy: “like aeronautics enables us to overcome great distances.” 3.) to make ready; equip (often used in combination): man to God, spiritually connection to heaven via the Holy Spirit.] the student to observe [1: to conform one’s action or practice to (as a law, rite, or condition) : comply with 2: to inspect or take note of as an augury, omen, or presage 3: to celebrate or solemnize (as a ceremony or festival) in a customary or accepted way 4 a : to watch carefully especially with attention to details or behavior for the purpose of arriving at a judgment b : to make a scientific observation on or of 5: to come to realize or know especially through consideration of noted facts 6: to utter as a remark.] the student to observe closely the divine Model, [programing process of adopting the behaviors and beliefs of another person] “for they testify [In the law, testimony is a form of evidence [ that is obtained from a witness who makes a solemn statement or declaration of fact.

Such oaths are often required by the laws of the state, religious body, or other organization before the person may actually exercise the powers of the office or any religious body. It may be administered at an inauguration, coronation, enthronement, or other ceremony connected with the taking up of office itself, or it may be administered privately.

A closely held company is far more likely to stay in a single place that has treated them well, even if going through hard times.] must be inspected often and closely in order to imitate it. [Imitate, Imitation (from Latin imitatio, “a copying, imitation”) is an advanced behavior whereby an individual observes and replicates another’s behavior. Imitation is also a form of social learning that leads to the “development of traditions, and ultimately our culture. It allows for the transfer of information (behaviours, customs, etc.) between individuals and down generations without the need for genetic inheritance.” The word imitation can be applied in many contexts, ranging from animal training to international politics.] As one becomes acquainted with the history of the Redeemer, [The New Testament speaks of Christ as the one Saviour for all people.] one discovers in himself defects of character [A character structure is a system of relatively permanent traits that are manifested in the specific ways that an individual relates and reacts to others, to various kinds of stimuli, and to the environment. A child whose nurture and/or education are not ideal, living in a treacherous environment and interacting with adults who do not take the long-term interests of the child to heart will be more likely to form a pattern of behavior that suits the child to avoid the challenges put forth by a malign social environment. The means that the child invents to make the
best of a hostile environment. Although this may serve the child well while in that bad environment, it may also cause the child to react in inappropriate ways, ways damaging to his or her own interests, when interacting with people in a more ideal social context. Major trauma that occurs later in life, even in adulthood, can sometimes have a profound effect. See post-traumatic stress disorder. However, character may also develop in a positive way according to how the individual meets the psychosocial challenges of the life cycle] his or her unlikeness to Christ is so great that he sees he cannot be a follower without a very great change in his or her life. . Still one studies, with a desire [Desire is a sense of longing or hoping for a person, object, or outcome. The same sense is expressed by emotions such as “craving” or “hankering“. When a person desires something or someone, their sense of longing is excited by the enjoyment or the thought of the item or person, and they want to take actions to obtain their goal. The motivational aspect of desire has long been noted by philosophers; Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) asserted that human desire is the fundamental motivation of all human action.] to be like his or her great Exemplar [worthy of imitation, model, archetype, Arch angel or into days world, the enemy of God is the Exemplar of Evil] he catches the looks, the spirit, of his beloved Master; [Someone who has control over something or someone.] by beholding “we” become changed. “Looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” . . .

- Comments by Connie: In studying these two paragraphs of Ellen White the decision to consult the dictionary and Wikipedia brings to mind, the deeper meaning of life, of the heart, the lonely hunter of truth, often depicted in art, literature and now video games. The boiling, raging words of the prophets, the minister trying to put the fear of God in his congregation, by quoting scripture, like:
- “Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his
judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. [She the false god, has made men drunk, dizzy, with her lies] And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14: 7-11)
- I too feel like screaming with a LOUD CRY, as I see men attempt to sit on God’s Throne, speaking of “peace and safety” while they rattle on, with voice contrary to the very scriptures they are “preaching.” Their actions, their words, not comprehending the meaning of the Righteousness of Jesus Christ, the Great Prince, the Sun of Righteousness, who came to glorify the character of Love for all Mankind, but without the shedding of blood, the death of Jesus, there is no remission [A pardon of a sin; the forgiveness of an offense.] of sin.
- In complete love, the figure 7, completes the mystery of Jesus. 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. “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. 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.” (Revelation 10:7-9)
- I ate the little book, of Revelation, and it opened up Daniel 12, with the angel standing with one foot on the sea, and other on the land…Jesus Christ has taken control of earth, through His disciples. “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. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 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.
- How can I not love the One who first loved me, enough to give me trails, patience, and love for all mankind, even if they walk away from His open arms, willing to save them, but unable to change His times and Laws. Jesus and God and the Heavenly voices, condemn sin to the utmost, while providing the Law, to expose our unworthiness, to represent Him…as the GREAT I AM THE LAWGIVER FROM MOUNT SINAI.
Becoming complete in Jesus, God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, requires the spirit of humility, to turn from sin, to turn to obedience. No man can come to the Father, except to face JESUS THE SON OF LIFE. Those use their powers, to control, add confusion, and deny their Holy Spirit, ,will be exposed while the truth in Saints and Prophets will be revealed.
When the plagues fall, it is to reveal to all mankind, the truth of good and evil, we see in the lives of those around us. How many can see the good, the seed, the truth of Jesus? A man without a gun. . but with a big SWORD OF TRUTH.
The Red Horse, has a rider named Michael the Archangel, who sits on his Red Horse, the symbol of the Kingdom of God, watching His enemies, kill His enemies.
Rev 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
Rev 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Rev 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
Rev 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Rev 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Judgment day is Here: What does you heart say about the love of Jesus Christ for you?
When teaching a two week Evangelist Campaign in Romania, we were told the Romanian Orthodox Church did not us there. They had put a curse on us. They poison the preachers dog, pulled out his toe nails. But the “curse” was broken, when the grandmother saw the “cucumber.” In the road a cucumber had fallen out by the gate, and Grandmother was fearful, the Word of God, could not protect her and her family from the curse. She cried out, “THE CURSE THE CURSE” when she saw the cucumber. Then her daughter, whose name was Violet, hugged her mother and said, “Connie coming to lunch, that is her cucumber. ” The curse was gone, then the Grandmother smiled me, and joy was allover her face! The next time we visited Violet, some hour drive from out hotel, the Grandmother came out and gave me lacework, like the kind you give a bride. Each little circle she had crocheted, was added to another, to make a place, where special treasures, would be placed.
The curse was place in her mind by the Romanian Orthodox Priests! They say, “IF you own a Bible, Read a Bible, or translated the Bible, I will not do your funeral or the funeral of your friend.” They implied language of the Priest, is that “without him” intervening in your funeral, you and your friends, will NOT GO TO HEAVEN! And the first question I was asked when published the book, Decoding the Bible Prophecy of 9-11-2001 in Revelation 8:8,9, was by a minister, who asked me, “Who gave you the authority to write this book?” As a woman or man does not have the authority to own, study or translate the Bible????
Although two women found comfort and compassion in the little church in Perrisori, Romanian, the visitors came and went, about eight a night, were new. We knew we were being watched by the Romanian Orthodox Church. They came like angels, and left.
It was the early spring in Romania, the temperatures were 7 above at night. The pastors car, a little tin can, had no heat, but after an hour, our body heat, began to warm up the seats. A wagon and horses came charging into town, a white horse, whipped by the man bundled tight on the seat, was like a view of the revenging Horses of God, whipped to speedily come to grips when the man of sin, who denies the Holy Spirit, and begins to come like lightening to those who have not prepared their heart, by removing their sins, by turning to repentance, rather than to the cunning words of “her” the false church, saying, “You can trust me,” like the snake in Jungle Book, that came to beguile the little boy, lost in the Jungle and all alone.
Holy Spirit: If the Holy Spirit strikes you heart with truth, the arrow goes straight, to hearts of many
women have found, the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ is no match for their husband. When men relay on women to guide them to spiritual truth, the time will come, when men and women and youth will have to display their courage, to walk away from whatever binds us to this world, in order that we may become free, not slaves, but brothers and sisters adopted by Jesus Christ, to be His friends in Heaven, like the angels, who ate with them in the Garden of Eden, after the creation of Earth on the 7th Day.
If you have this longing to be part of the Family of God, renewing you mind, continue to grow in love for God and man, pray this prayer with me. “Lord, I accept who I am and who you want me to be, and take this heart of mine and lead me closer to Thee.” Jesus is the author and finisher of your faith! God Bless you and all who come in His name!
“Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.” That is just what Jesus wants to be the one you come to Him too, in Romans 10:13. God Bless You!
