Dare you be Different?   Leave a comment

dear jesus
                                                ****
Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should
shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light
The warning that the Son of man is soon to come in the clouds of heaven has become to many a
familiar tale. They have left the waiting, watching position. The selfish, worldly spirit manifested
in the life reveals the sentiment of the heart,  “My lord delayeth his coming.” ...
The same spirit of selfishness, of conformity to the practices of the world, exists in our day as in
Noah’s. Many who profess to be children of God follow their worldly pursuits with an intensity that
gives the lie to their profession. They will be planting and building, buying and selling, eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the last moment of their probation. This is the
condition of a large number of our own people….
My soul is burdened as I see the great want of spirituality among us. The fashions and customs of
the world, pride, love of amusement, love of display, extravagance in dress, in houses, in lands—
these are robbing the treasury of God, turning to the gratification of self the means which should
beused to send forth the light of truth to the world….
The children of the light and of the day are not to gather about them the shades of night and
darkness which encompass the workers of iniquity. On the contrary, they are to stand faithfully at
their post of duty as light bearers, gathering light from God to shed upon those in darkness. The
Lord requires His people to maintain their integrity, touching not—that is, imitating not—the practices of the ungodly.
Christians will be in this world “an holy nation, a peculiar people,” showing forth the praises of
Him who hath called them “out of darkness into his marvellous light.” This light is not to grow
dim, but to shine brighter and brighter unto the perfect day…. The thrilling truth that has been
sounding in our ears for many years, “The Lord is at hand; be ye also ready,” is no less the truth today than when we first heard the message.

“FAITH.. is the Victory..”   Leave a comment

OPAL'S JOURNAL - "TO KNOW GOD" ......

lose faith

^^^^^

…. His compassions fail not..
They are new every morning;
GREAT is YOUR FAITHFULNESS.. ”
Lamentations  3 : 22-23

The “Fruit of Faithfulness” – is much needed in our time.
Faith – holds us steady
– when earthly foundations crumble all about us.
Faith – holds us steady
– when adversities hold us like a cloud of gloom.
Faith –  Uplifts and Energizes
.
“FAITH- is the VICTORY –  that overcomes the world.”

To believe is to be strong.
Doubt cramps energy.
Faith is energy  and power –
Enabled by the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Resulting in Faith-full-ness.

The Creator- God – who put faithfulness-
into the- fabric of the universe –
will produce that quality in the surrendered life.
The fruit of faith in our life will lead you and others
to limitless spiritual discoveries.

God’s FAITHFULNESS-
becomes the basis of our faithfulness.
They never fail– and are new every morning.

God’s faithfulness –
Gives us…

Your Future – A Happy New Year!   Leave a comment

Jesus loves u

*****

“For you have NOT passed this way before..” Joshua 3 : 4

A Happy and Blessed New Year – Friends.
As we embark into another year.

As we look forward – we are thankful for a God
who knows the future –
and has promised to walk with us all the way.

The NEW YEAR– Marks the passing of time.
Many regard – TIME- that steals our youth;
dims ours eyes; Slows our steps and saps our vitality.
They view TIME- as an enemy – we wrestle in mortal combat.
But for the CHRISTIAN -TIME- extends beyond an earthly lifetime-
into the COUNTLESS AGES OF ETERNITY.

The passing of TIME – takes the Christian
nearer and nearer to a better land….
Where we shall see our Savior face to face.
The important thing is to walk with the LORD –
through the days of this NEW YEAR!

“I said to the man – who stood at the gate of the year:
‘Give me a light, that I may tread safely into the darkness’.
And he replied– “Go out into the darkness-
And put your hand – into the hand of God.
It shall be to you better than light
And safer than a known way.”

M. Louise Haskins

HAPPY SABBATH.

“Thanksgiving Day”.   Leave a comment

***

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!..”
Psalms 148 : 1-5

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving?
Do you picture a time of thankfulness toward God—
or is it merely one of eating,
partying or watching football?

Sadly, the latter is what
Thanksgiving has become to most.
They have forgotten why the day was established.
Its meaning has slowly deteriorated,
and is now almost completely lost

While many are familiar with the
traditional representation
of the original Thanksgiving,
It is helpful to examine the purpose
for which it was first celebrated.
By doing this, the day’s meaning
will be firmly established.

May God grant that He may find us
grateful every day for all of His gifts,
spiritual and material.
“God is good, and every good gift comes from Him”
(James 1:17).

For those who know Christ-

 People who live their lives together, eventually will –  sound; talk and even think alike.

As we walk with God –  we will take on His thoughts; His principals; His attitude – and  finally –

 His HEART.

To- “Draw us to God”…   Leave a comment

high as                                                                                  *****

“I have LOVED thee with an everlasting Love…
therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.”
Jeremiah 31 : 3

The Lord of life and glory clothed His divinity
with humanity to demonstrate
to man that God through the
GIFT of Christ would connect us with Him.

In all the gracious deeds that Jesus did,
He sought to impress upon men the attributes of God…
Jesus would have us understand the love of the Father
and He seeks to draw us to Him
by presenting His Parental grace.

It was only by living among men that He
could reveal the mercy, compassion and
love of His heavenly Father.
For it was only by actions that He could
set forth the grace of God.

Christ came to manifest the love of God to the world…
To draw the hearts of all men to Himself.
The first step is to respond to the love of Christ-
So we can understand the joy and peace of God.
If we respond- He will lead us on
step by step to a full knowledge of Himself-
and this is LIFE ETERNAL!

E. G. WHITE

WISHING YOU GOD’S BLESSINGS.
