The price paid for our redemption, the infinite sacrifice of our heavenly Father in giving His Son to die for us, should give us exalted conceptions of what we may become through Christ. As the inspired apostle John beheld the height, the depth, the breadth of the Father’s love toward the perishing race, he was filled with adoration and reverence; and, failing to find suitable language in which to express the greatness and tenderness of this love, he called upon the world to behold it. . . . What a value this places upon man! Through transgression the sons of man become subjects of Satan. Through faith in the atoning sacrifice of Christ the sons of Adam may become the sons of God. By assuming human nature, Christ elevates humanity. Fallen men are placed where, through connection with Christ, they may indeed become worthy of the name “sons of God.” Such love is without a parallel. Children of the heavenly King! Precious promise! Theme for the most profound meditation! The matchless love of God for a world that did not love Him! The thought has a subduing power upon the soul and brings the mind into captivity to the will of God. The more we study the divine character in the light of the cross, the more we see mercy, tenderness, and forgiveness blended with equity and justice, and the more clearly we discern innumerable evidences of a love that is infinite and a tender pity surpassing a mother’s yearning sympathy for her wayward child. -{SC 15} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
Frederick I of Prussia and his wife Sophie Charlotte were protestants, so when they had a chapel built at Charlottenburg Palace it was dedicated according to their religious beliefs. Protestant churches are supposed to refrain from use of lavish decoration, but I don’t think I’ve ever been in a supposedly protestant court chapel that is more utterly over-the-top than theirs. Aside from a massive gold-plated and marble-covered altar there’s a gigantic crown (also gold-plated) being carried by stucco putti underneath yet another gold-plated curtain and the Prussian eagle. Other than that there’s gemstones, stucco decorations, fresco’s and about everything else you can imagine being completed unsuited to a plain and sobre protestant interior. To keep it al sliiightly to their religious beliefs, the king and queen would sit in a relatively more ‘modest’ back room behind a screened fence. . . . . . #berlin #berlijn #deutschland #germany #germanytourism #architekturgeschichte #architekturfotografie #berlincity #architektur #architecture #charlottenburg #overthetop #chapel #lavish #gold #stucco #fresco #history #geschichte #church #art #kunst #prussia #prussian #berlinstagram #berlincharlottenburg #court #protestantism #courtchapel
When the work of the investigative judgment closes, the destiny of all will have been decided for life or death. Probation is ended a short time before the appearing of the Lord in the clouds of heaven. Christ in the Revelation, looking forward to that time, declares: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:11, 12. -{CIHS 127.1} The righteous and the wicked will still be living upon the earth in their mortal state—men will be planting and building, eating and drinking, all unconscious that the final, irrevocable decision has been pronounced in the sanctuary above. Before the Flood, after Noah entered the ark, God shut him in and shut the ungodly out; but for seven days the people, knowing not that their doom was fixed, continued their careless, pleasure-loving life and mocked the warnings of impending judgment. “So,” says the Saviour, “shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:39. Silently, unnoticed as the midnight thief, will come the decisive hour which marks the fixing of every man's destiny, the final withdrawal of mercy's offer to guilty men. -{CIHS 127.2} “Watch ye therefore:...lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping.” Mark 13:35, 36. Perilous is the condition of those who, growing weary of their watch, turn to the attractions of the world. While the man of business is absorbed in the pursuit of gain, while the pleasure lover is seeking indulgence, while the daughter of fashion is arranging her adornments—it may be in that hour the Judge of all the earth will pronounce the sentence: “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” Daniel 5:27.—The Great Controversy, 479-491. -{CIHS 127.3}
The best reason to visit Wittenberg, the birth of the protestant reformation at this chapel on October 31, 1517 when Luther's 96 Theses was nailed to the front door.

The Saviour in His miracles revealed the power that is continually at work in man’s behalf, to sustain and to heal him. . . . Sickness, suffering, and death are work of an antagonistic power. Satan is the destroyer; God is the restorer. . . . The desire of God for every human being is expressed in the words, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3 John 2). -{MH 112, 113} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism

#Repost @thewatchman1844_ ・・・ Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears before God. You cannot burden Him; you cannot weary Him. He who numbers the hairs of your head is not indifferent to the wants of His children. “The Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy” (James 5:11). His heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even by our utterances of them. Take to Him everything that perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for Him to bear, for He holds up worlds, He rules over all the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest. “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). The relations between God and each soul are as distinct and full as though there were not another soul upon the earth to share His watchcare, not another soul for whom He gave His beloved Son. -{SC 100} ▪️▪️▪️▪️ #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
The Church of the Light, a signature piece by Tadao Ando, uses a simple concrete structure and natural light to create a blur between the internal and external. In fact, Ando wished that the cross area contain no glass and be open to the elements but the client refused. #Ibaraki City, #Japan #安藤忠雄 #architecture #architect #japaneseculture #church #religion #christ #christian #protestant #protestantism #light #cross #crucifix #hope #spiritual
We are now living in the great day of atonement. In the typical service, while the high priest was making the atonement for Israel, all were required to afflict their souls by repentance of sin and humiliation before the Lord, lest they be cut off from among the people. In like manner, all who would have their names retained in the book of life should now, in the few remaining days of their probation, afflict their souls before God by sorrow for sin and true repentance. There must be deep, faithful searching of heart. The light, frivolous spirit indulged by so many professed Christians must be put away. There is earnest warfare before all who would subdue the evil tendencies that strive for the mastery. The work of preparation is an individual work. We are not saved in groups. The purity and devotion of one will not offset the want of these qualities in another. Though all nations are to pass in judgment before God, yet He will examine the case of each individual with as close and searching scrutiny as if there were not another being upon the earth. Everyone must be tested and found without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. -{CIHS 126.1} Solemn are the scenes connected with the closing work of the atonement. Momentous are the interests involved therein. The judgment is now passing in the sanctuary above. For many years this work has been in progress. Soon—none know how soon—it will pass to the cases of the living. In the awful presence of God our lives are to come up in review. At this time above all others it behooves every soul to heed the Saviour's admonition: “Watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” Mark 13:33. “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” Revelation 3:3. -{CIHS 126.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
There is danger in regarding justification by faith as placing merit on faith. When you take the righteousness of Christ as a free gift you are justified freely through the redemption of Christ. What is faith? “The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). It is an assent of the understanding to God's words which binds the heart in willing consecration and service to God, Who gave the understanding, Who moved on the heart, Who first drew the mind to view Christ on the cross of Calvary. Faith is rendering to God the intellectual powers, abandonment of the mind and will to God, and making Christ the only door to enter into the kingdom of heaven. -{FW 25.2} When men learn they cannot earn righteousness by their own merit of works, and they look with firm and entire reliance upon Jesus Christ as their only hope, there will not be so much of self and so little of Jesus. Souls and bodies are defiled and polluted by sin, the heart is estranged from God, yet many are struggling in their own finite strength to win salvation by good works. Jesus, they think, will do some of the saving; they must do the rest. They need to see by faith the righteousness of Christ as their only hope for time and for eternity. -{FW 25.3} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism #HappySabbath
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves” (2 Corinthians 13:5). Closely criticize the temper, the disposition, the thoughts, words, inclinations, purposes, and deeds. How can we ask intelligently for the things we need unless we prove by the Scriptures the condition of our spiritual health? -{1SM 89.1} Many in their religious life are making crooked paths for their feet. Their prayers are offered in a loose, haphazard manner. He who is placed in a position of responsibility should remember that of himself he is not able to do that which is required of him. Every day he should remember that he is a spectacle unto the world, to angels, and to men. -{1SM 89.2} No one is to wait to be borne to fields of labor and provided with costly facilities for doing good. He who serves must cheerfully take up his work, however humble it is, and wherever he may be placed. Christ, our example in all things, was poor, that through His poverty He might make many rich. -{1SM 89.3} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism #HappySabbath
#HappySabbath As we are continually receiving the blessings of God, so are we to be continually giving. When the heavenly Benefactor ceases to give to us, then we may be excused; for we shall have nothing to bestow. God has never left us without evidence of His love, in that He did us good.... -{CS 17.5} We are sustained every moment by God's care, and upheld by His power. He spreads our tables with food. He gives us peaceful and refreshing sleep. Weekly He brings to us the Sabbath, that we may rest from our temporal labors, and worship Him in His own house. He has given us His word to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. In its sacred pages we find the counsels of wisdom; and as oft as we lift our hearts to Him in penitence and faith, He grants us the blessings of His grace. Above all else is the infinite gift of God's dear Son, through whom flow all other blessings for this life and for the life to come. -{CS 18.1} Surely goodness and mercy attend us at every step. Not till we wish the infinite Father to cease bestowing His gifts on us, should we impatiently exclaim, Is there no end of giving? Not only should we faithfully render to God our tithes, which He claims as His own, but we should bring a tribute to His treasury as an offering of gratitude. Let us with joyful hearts bring to our Creator the first fruits of all His bounties,—our choicest possessions, our best and holiest service.—The Review and Herald, February 9, 1886. -{CS 18.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism

A folk costume (also regional costume, national costume, or traditional garment) expresses an identity through costume, which is usually associated with a geographic area or a period of time in history. It can also indicate social, marital or religious status. If the costume is used to represent the culture or identity of a specific ethnic group, it is usually known as ethnic costume (also ethnic dress, ethnic wear, ethnic clothing, traditional ethnic wear or traditional ethnic garment). Such costumes often come in two forms: one for everyday occasions, the other for traditional festivals and formal wear. Croatia has numerous traditional costumes representing their regions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #trump #monarchy #king #queen #croatia #usa #sweden #uk #poland #italy #france #europe #guns #christianity #catholicism #protestantism #orthodoxy #conservative #tradition #culture #royal #royalty #history #prolife #people #government My partners: @west_virginia_paleolibertarian @austria_official_actually_yes @n.eoreactionary @absolutist_monarchist @washington.nationalism @the.kazakh.reich.brick @buchananite_republican @i_really_like_this_image_v2
Sow the seeds of truth wherever you have opportunity. In establishing the work in new places, economize in every possible way. Gather up the fragments; let nothing be lost. The work of soul-saving must be carried on in the way that Christ has marked out. He declares, “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” Only by obeying this word can we be His disciples. We are striving for a kingdom and a crown. We shall obtain both by wearing Christ's yoke and learning of Him. “Follow My example,” He says. “Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; ... and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” -{SpTB19 31.2} We are nearing the end of this earth's history, and the different lines of God's work are to be carried forward with much more self-sacrifice than they have yet been. The work for these last days is a missionary work. Present truth, from the first letter of its alphabet to the last, means missionary effort. The work to be done calls for sacrifice at every step of advance. The workers are to come forth from trial purified and refined, as gold tried in the fire. -{SpTB19 31.3} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
The Eucharist >>>>
Proper theology matters.
Those who do love God with all the heart will desire to give Him the best service of their life, and they will be constantly seeking to bring every power of their being into harmony with the laws that will promote their ability to do His will. They will not, by the indulgence of appetite or passion, enfeeble or defile the offering which they present to their heavenly Father. Peter says: “Abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul” (1 Peter 2:11). Every sinful gratification tends to benumb the faculties and deaden the mental and spiritual perceptions, and the word or the Spirit of God can make but a feeble impression upon the heart. Paul writes to the Corinthians: “Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (2 Corinthians 7:1). And with the fruits of the Spirit—“love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness”—he classes “temperance” (Galatians 5:22, 23). Notwithstanding these inspired declarations, how many professed Christians are enfeebling their powers in the pursuit of gain or the worship of fashion; how many are debasing their godlike manhood by gluttony, by wine drinking, by forbidden pleasure. And the church, instead of rebuking, too often encourages the evil by appealing to appetite, to desire for gain or love of pleasure, to replenish her treasury, which love for Christ is too feeble to supply. Were Jesus to enter the churches of today and behold the feasting and unholy traffic there conducted in the name of religion, would He not drive out those desecrators, as He banished the money-changers from the temple? -{GC 473, 474} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
December 16, 1848, the Lord gave me a view of the shaking of the powers of the heavens. I saw that when the Lord said “heaven,” in giving the signs recorded by Matthew, Mark, and Luke, He meant heaven, and when He said “earth,” He meant earth. The powers of heaven are the sun, moon, and stars. They rule in the heavens. The powers of earth are those that rule on the earth. The powers of heaven will be shaken at the voice of God. Then the sun, moon, and stars will be moved out of their places. They will not pass away, but be shaken by the voice of God. -{CET 111.1} Dark heavy clouds came up, and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God. The holy city will come down through that open space. I saw that the powers of earth are now being shaken, and that events come in order. War, and rumors of war, sword, famine, and pestilence are first to shake the powers of earth, then the voice of God will shake the sun, moon, and stars, and this earth also. I saw that the shaking of the powers in Europe is not, as some teach, the shaking of the powers of heaven, but it is the shaking of the angry nations. -{CET 111.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
Repost from @mad_rob_
We cannot afford to lose heaven. We ought to have our conversation on heavenly things. There there is no death nor pain. Why are we so reluctant to talk of these things? Why do we dwell upon earthly things? The apostle exhorts us to have our conversation in heaven. “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).... Christ will soon return to gather those who are prepared, and take them to this glorious place. “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation” (Hebrews 9:28). -{HP 370.3} Do we love to think of this event or do we want to put it off? ... The more we talk of Jesus, the more we shall reflect His divine image. By beholding we become transformed. We need to bring Christ into our religious experience. When you assemble together, let the conversation be on Christ and His salvation.... The more we talk of Jesus the more of His matchless charms we shall behold. -{HP 370.4} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
Reading in Daniel this morning and got to this part. My heart leapt for joy as if it were the first time I was reading it. The words are so beautiful and it’s meaning so powerful. His kingdom shall not be destroyed. Take rest in this, Christian.
The Third Council of Constantinople, counted as the Sixth Ecumenical Council by the Eastern Orthodox and Catholic Churches, as well by certain other Western Churches, met on this day in 680/681 and condemned monoenergism and monothelitism as heretical and defined Jesus Christ as having two energies and two wills (divine and human). At some point during the council's proceedings, a Monothelite priest claimed he could raise the dead, thereby proving his faith supreme. He had a corpse brought forth, but after whispering prayers into its ears, could not revive the body. During the council, a letter by Pope Agatho was read which asserted as the traditional belief of the Church that Christ was of two wills, divine and human. Most of the bishops present accepted the letter, proclaiming that Peter spoke through Agatho, though this council also proclaimed another historical pope as anathema. Macarius of Antioch defended monothelitism but was condemned and deposed, along with his partisans. The council, in keeping with Agatho's letter, defined that Jesus Christ possessed two energies and two wills but that the human will was 'in subjection to his divine and all-powerful will'. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ #trump #monarchy #king #queen #croatia #usa #sweden #uk #poland #italy #france #europe #guns #christianity #catholicism #protestantism #orthodoxy #conservative #tradition #culture #royal #royalty #history #prolife #people #government My partners: @west_virginia_paleolibertarian @austria_official_actually_yes @n.eoreactionary @nat.paleocon @washington.nationalism @the.kazakh.reich.brick @buchananite_republican @i_really_like_this_image_v2
How shall Christ's people stand in days of almost overwhelming opposition? Can we rely on God's promises no matter what may come? Where can we find a safeguard from the storm? As the Sabbath has become the special point of controversy throughout Christendom, and religious and secular authorities have combined to enforce the observance of the Sunday, the persistent refusal of a small minority to yield to the popular demand will make them objects of universal execration. It will be urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church and a law of the state ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness. The same argument eighteen hundred years ago was brought against Christ by the “rulers of the people.” “It is expedient for us,” said the wily Caiaphas, “that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.” John 11:50. This argument will appear conclusive; and a decree will finally be issued against those who hallow the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, denouncing them as deserving of the severest punishment and giving the people liberty, after a certain time, to put them to death. Romanism in the Old World and apostate Protestantism in the New will pursue a similar course toward those who honor all the divine precepts. -{DD 40.1} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
The owner of all our earthly treasures came to our world in human form. The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. We cannot appreciate how deeply interested He must be in the human family. He knows the value of every soul. What grief oppressed Him as He saw His purchased inheritance charmed with Satan's inventions! -{CS 136.1} The only satisfaction Satan takes in playing the game of life for the souls of men is the satisfaction he takes in hurting the heart of Christ. Though He was rich, for our sake Christ became poor, that we through His poverty might be made rich. Yet in view of this great fact, the majority of the world permit earthly possessions to eclipse heavenly attractions. They set their affections upon earthly things, and turn away from God. What a grievous sin it is that men will not come to their senses, and understand how foolish it is to permit inordinate affections for earthly things to expel the love of God from the heart. When the love of God is expelled, the love of the world quickly flows in to supply the vacuum. The Lord alone can cleanse the soul temple from the moral defilement. -{CS 136.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism

That time will soon come, and we shall have to keep hold of the strong arm of Jehovah; for all these great signs and mighty wonders of the devil are designed to deceive God's people and overthrow them. Our minds must be stayed upon God, and we must not fear the fear of the wicked, that is, fear what they fear, and reverence what they reverence, but be bold and valiant for the truth. Could our eyes be opened, we should see forms of evil angels around us, trying to invent some new way to annoy and destroy us. And we should also see angels of God guarding us from their power; for God's watchful eye is ever over Israel for good, and He will protect and save His people, if they put their trust in Him. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. -{EW 60.1} Said the angel, “Remember, thou art on the enchanted ground.” I saw that we must watch and have on the whole armor and take the shield of faith, and then we shall be able to stand, and the fiery darts of the wicked cannot harm us. -{EW 60.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
Does #protestantism leave the #Church like a ship without a rudder? Is the #romancatholicchurch our twitter? Link in bio.
Looking at the cathedral's stained glass windows, the visitor asked the young girl who they were, the ones depicted so beautifully. She answered, "They are the Saints, who let His light pass through them." We too can let His light pass through us. Each color can be like the different beatitudes Jesus teaches about. Living out each facet, we can glorify Him. What else could we want? Like so many stained glass windows found in cathedrals and churches around the world, let Him tell your story. He can fill your life with His color ...and in the process show His love for others, through you. My thanks go to the priest in a precious little parish in Southern California who gave us this story and pearl of wisdom. I wanted to share its universal truth to those who would read it. In all we do, His light is there. In all we do, His light comes through. 🕯 #protestant #protestantism #catholic #catholicconnect #christian #jesus #god #jesuschrist #theology #dailydevotion #crucifix #catholicchurch #christians #divinemercy #christianblog #jesuschrist #catholicism Photo credit: Wikipedia Public Domain File: Vitrail Notre-Dame de Paris.

Faith, patience, forbearance, heavenly-mindedness, trust in your wise heavenly Father are the perfect blossoms which mature amidst clouds and disappointments and bereavements. God designs you and I should both know the discipline of adversity. [You are] not to mourn and distress your soul over the providence of God, but say from the heart, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted” [Psalm 119:71]; that you could from the heart say, “I have been deprived of earthly dependence that I might trust more continually in my Saviour.” -{Lt1-1883.38} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism

#OTD 1605: “Remember, remember / The fifth of November / The Gunpowder treason and plot / I know of no reason / Why the Gunpowder treason / Should ever be forgot! / Guy Fawkes and his companions / Did the scheme contrive / To blow the King and Parliament / All up alive / Threescore barrels, laid below / To prove old England's overthrow / But, by God's providence, him they catch / With a dark lantern, lighting a match / A stick and a stake / For King James's sake! / If you won't give me one / I'll take two / The better for me / And the worse for you” — English folk verse, circa 1870⠀ .⠀ #History #Archives #GuyFawkes #BonfireNight #5thNovember #Parliament #Britain #Revolution #Protestantism #Reformation #Catholicism #Fireworks

With the consecrated worker for God, in whatever place he may be, the Holy Spirit abides. The words spoken to the disciples are spoken also to us. The Comforter is ours as well as theirs. The Spirit furnishes the strength that sustains striving, wrestling souls in every emergency, amidst the hatred of the world, and the realization of their own failures and mistakes. In sorrow and affliction, when the outlook seems dark and the future perplexing, and we feel helpless and alone,—these are the times when, in answer to the prayer of faith, the Holy Spirit brings comfort to the heart. -{AA 51.1} It is not a conclusive evidence that a man is a Christian because he manifests spiritual ecstasy under extraordinary circumstances. Holiness is not rapture: it is an entire surrender of the will to God; it is living by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God; it is doing the will of our heavenly Father; it is trusting God in trial, in darkness as well as in the light; it is walking by faith and not by sight; it is relying on God with unquestioning confidence, and resting in His love. -{AA 51.2} #EllenWhite #SpiritofProphecy #PresentTruth #prayer #consecration #spiritualgrowth #faith #belief #truth #GodsWord #Bible #RemnantChurch #Jesus #Christ #healthreform #healthreformer #vegan #plantbased #SeventhdayAdventist #Adventist #SDA #Christlikeness #godliness #Christian #Christianity #Protestant #Protestantism #Evangelism
On this day 501 years ago, some rebel rousing priest named Martin Luther (pre civil rights Martin, must be in the name) published a document criticizing the Catholic church for their manipulations when it came to selling 'indulgencies' or their actions performed to reduce the amount of punishment for 'sin'. Little did he know that what he had done on this day would change the face of Europe and Christendom forever. • • Luther at the diet of worms ~ Anton von Werner ~ 1877. • • #history #onthisday #arte #artwork #paintingoftheday #instaart #artsy #painting #oilpainting #historical #martinluther #protestantism #instadaily #catholic #ighistory #histoire #art #historia #insta #artoftheday #instagood #dailypaintings #archives #archive #igart #instapainting #vonwerner #historypainting
