Although regarded today as one of the most Catholic countries on Earth, Poland was also one of the birthplaces of the Reformation. This World Religion Day, Natalia Nowakowa explains why… . ‘During the reign of Sigismund I, his kingdom was… shaken by 4 different waves of Reformation upheaval: urban, legal, peasant, & elite. During the urban wave, the kingdom’s Baltic ports were seized by religious revolutionaries… in violent Reformation city revolts unparalleled in Europe. In the case of the legal revolt, King Sigismund stunned the Pope in 1525 by turning the lands of the Teutonic Order… into Christendom’s very first legally Lutheran state… within the Polish monarchy. The peasant upheaval also took place during 1525, when armies of Luther-quoting rebel peasants rampaged… During the elite wave, Polish towns & nobles eagerly invited Lutheran preachers, tutors, & printers into their midst, where they were protected by the kingdom’s most powerful magnates, such as Łukasz Górka of Poznań… Observers across Europe… were convinced that… Poland’s next king… would take the radical step of announcing Europe’s first Lutheran monarchy… . ‘The majority of suspected Lutherans were ignored, or allowed to walk unpunished from court-rooms… [They] were regarded as bookish dissidents, anomalies, misguided but genuine fellow Christians… not as enemies of Crown or society… Poland may not have ended up Lutheran by 1600, but it is a historical laboratory in which we can see how late medieval Christians imagined, & brought, both Lutheranism & reformed Catholicism into existence. . ‘This year… tourists will walk under the medieval cranes of Gdańsk’s waterside, or step over the plaque in Kraków’s market square marking the 1525 creation of Ducal Prussia… or take tea in Poznań’s Egyptology museum café, where Łukasz Górka once dwelt with his Lutheran household… All around them are spaces, sites & ghosts integral to the story of how Europe slipped into two polarised, warring churches… The story of Martin Luther & King Sigismund, then, is a story of lost identities, new identities, & alternative narratives in European history—a timely lesson in how revolution, & cultural fragmentation, begins.’

Ou ignoreis que todos nós, que fomos batizados em Cristo Jesus, fomos igualmente batizados na sua morte? Portanto, fomos sepultados com Ele na morte por meio do batismo, com o propósito de que, assim como Cristo foi ressuscitado dos mortos mediante a glória do Pai, também nós vivamos uma nova vida.

Paul's inspired warnings against self-indulgence are sounding along the line down to our time.... He presents for our encouragement the freedom enjoyed by the truly sanctified. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1. He charges the Galatians to “walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.” Galatians 5:16, 17. He names some of the forms of fleshly lusts—idolatry, drunkenness, and such like. After mentioning the fruits of the Spirit, among which is temperance, he adds, “And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” Verse 24. -{CH 69.2} There are many among professed Christians today who would decide that Daniel was too particular and would pronounce him narrow and bigoted. They consider the matter of eating and drinking of too little consequence to require such a decided stand—one involving the probable sacrifice of every earthly advantage. But those who reason thus will find in the day of judgment that they turned from God's express requirements and set up their own opinion as a standard of right and wrong. They will find that what seemed to them unimportant was not so regarded of God. His requirements should be sacredly obeyed. Those who accept and obey one of His precepts because it is convenient to do so, while they reject another because its observance would require a sacrifice, lower the standard of right, and by their example lead others to lightly regard the holy law of God. “Thus saith the Lord” is to be our rule in all things. -{CH 69.3} #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
. . DO NOT LET A MONEY HUNGRY PASTOR OR PREACHER OR ANOTHER RELIGION LIE TO YOU!!!! . The Sabbath Day is a monument of God’s creation. No man can change the day! It’s a commandment of God to rest from work on this day, and an invitation to worhip the creator of Heaven and Earth. We cannot change around God’s creation and call another day of the week the ‘sabbath.’ That would be like me calling a Zeebra a Bear from now on. Or calling a Frog a bird, you see? No man can change the Sabbath to another day. The sabbath day will always be the seventh day of the week; Saturday. Happy Sabbath! . . #HappySabbath #LordsDay #DayOfTheLord #creation #protestantism #stevenanderson #thegreatcontroversy #sealofGod #jehovaswitnesses #watchtower #GodIsLove #mercyoftheLord #beautifulDay #SabbathTruth #catholicism #jewish #victoryoutreach #pentecostal #NWO #SundayIsNotTheSabbath #SundayIsMarkOfTheBeast #Adventism
Begun reading this book on the dark history of the #Catholicchurch . Individuals who are Catholic can be wonderful people but the #institution of the Catholic church is endemically corrupt. Given the high claims the Catholic church makes for itself is why I'm harsh on it. Say what you will about #Evangelical #Protestantism but it never makes claims of infallibility and so it can be forgiven for falling short as a body. If you make high claims for your church and you fall short of those claims I will slam you for it.
We are to do all that we can do on our part to fight the good fight of faith. We are to wrestle, to labor, to strive, to agonize to enter in at the strait gate. We are to set the Lord ever before us. With clean hands, with pure hearts, we are to seek to honor God in all our ways. Help has been provided for us in Him who is mighty to save. The spirit of truth and light will quicken and renew us by its mysterious workings; for all our spiritual improvement comes from God, not from ourselves. The true worker will have divine power to aid him, but the idler will not be sustained by the Spirit of God. -{FW 48.1} In one way we are thrown upon our own energies; we are to strive earnestly to be zealous and to repent, to cleanse our hands and purify our hearts from every defilement; we are to reach the highest standard, believing that God will help us in our efforts. We must seek if we would find, and seek in faith; we must knock, that the door may be opened unto us. The Bible teaches that everything regarding our salvation depends upon our own course of action. If we perish, the responsibility will rest wholly upon ourselves. If provision has been made, and if we accept God's terms, we may lay hold on eternal life. We must come to Christ in faith, we must be diligent to make our calling and election sure. -{FW 48.2} #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 #HappySabbath
#HappySabbath All the treasures of the universe will be open to the study of God’s children. With unutterable delight we shall enter into the joy and the wisdom of unfallen beings. We shall share the treasures gained through ages upon ages spent in contemplation of God’s handiwork. And the years of eternity, as they roll, will continue to bring more glorious revelations. “Exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20) will be, forever and forever, the impartation of the gifts of God. {Hvn 152.6} “His servants shall serve Him.” Revelation 22:3. The life on earth is the beginning of the life in heaven; education on earth is an initiation into the principles of heaven; the lifework here is a training for the lifework there. What we now are, in character and holy service, is the sure foreshadowing of what we shall be. {Hvn 153.1} “The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister.” Matthew 20:28. Christ’s work below is His work above, and our reward for working with Him in this world will be the greater power and wider privilege of working with Him in the world to come. {Hvn 153.2} #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
Jesus ended his teaching on the mount with an illustration that presented with startling vividness the importance of putting in practice the words He had spoken. Among the crowds that thronged about the Saviour were many who had spent their lives about the Sea of Galilee. As they sat upon the hillside, listening to the words of Christ, they could see valleys and ravines through which the mountain streams found their way to the sea. In summer these streams often wholly disappeared, leaving only a dry and dusty channel. But when the wintry storms burst upon the hills, the rivers became fierce, raging torrents, at times overspreading the valleys and bearing everything away on their resistless flood.... But high upon the hills were houses built upon the rock. In some parts of the land were dwellings built wholly of rock, and many of them had withstood the tempests of a thousand years.... And wind and flood and tempest beat upon them in vain. -{LHU 195.2} Like the builders of these houses on the rock, said Jesus, is he who shall receive the words that I have spoken to you, and make them the foundation of his character and life. Centuries before, the prophet Isaiah had written, “The word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8); and Peter, long after the Sermon on the Mount was given, quoting these words of Isaiah, added, “This is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you (1 Peter 1:25). The Word of God is the only steadfast thing our world knows. It is the sure foundation. “Heaven and earth shall pass away,” said Jesus, “but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). -{LHU 195.3} #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

A rainbow only exists in reflected light. Color itself, is inexplicable without first seeing it. What will we see in Heaven? I wait in joyful hope for that. "Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what God has ready for those who love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9. Come home to Him. He wants to show you unimagineable beauty, more than what we've seen here in this life.

Health, truth, and happiness can never be advanced without an intelligent knowledge of, and full obedience to, the law of God and perfect faith in Jesus Christ. The Lord uses no other medium through which to reach the human heart. Many professed Christians acknowledge that in the use of tobacco they are indulging a filthy, expensive, and hurtful practice. But they excuse themselves by saying that the habit is formed and they cannot overcome it. In this acknowledgment they yield homage to Satan, saying by their actions, if not in words, that, although God is powerful, Satan has greater power. By profession they say, We are the servants of Jesus Christ, while their works say that they yield subjection to Satan's sway because it costs them the least inconvenience. Is this overcoming as Christ overcame? Or is it being overcome by temptation? And the above apology is urged by men in the ministry, who profess to be Christ's ambassadors. -{Con 76.2} Many are the temptations and besetments on every side to ruin the prospects of young men, both for this world and the next. But the only path of safety is for young and old to live in strict conformity to the principles of physical and moral law. The path of obedience is the only path that leads to heaven. Alcohol and tobacco inebriates would, at times, give any amount of money if they could by so doing overcome their appetite for these body-and-soul-destroying indulgences. And they who will not subject the appetites and passions to the control of reason will indulge them at the expense of physical and moral obligations. -{Con 76.3} #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
I was fortunate to portray Martin Luther. Of interest on the Day of my audition Margaret Maye happened to be with me. When the casting director Paul Jackson came out of the casting room he noticed Margaret and invited her to audition as Katherine Von Bora, the wife of Martin Luther, a part which she ended up securing. The Protestant Revolution was a Mini Series that played on the History Chanel and BBC four and perhaps others. This “Four-part documentary series in which historian Tristram Hunt explores the scientific, cultural, economic and political aspects of Protestantism. In this opening part, he uncovers how a debate about religion in 16th Century Germany (Martin Luther's challenge to the Pope) sparked a political revolution - from the bloody battlefields of medieval Germany to the Civil Wars of the 1640s in Britain, Protestantism unleashed a series of revolutions and wars that rippled across Europe.” (Imdb). #garyneumann #lutherinchurch #protestantism #protestant #lutherin #imdb #imdbpro
The Bible predicts terrorism in the last days. It also predicts that God’s people who are in Christ will not fear them.

#Elizabeth was determined to return her kingdom to #Protestantism . In 1559, Parliament followed Elizabeth’s wishes and set up the #ChurchofEngland , or #AnglicanChurch with Elizabeth as its head. This was to be the only legal church in England. Elizabeth decided to establish a state church that moderate Catholics and moderate Protestants might both accept. To please Protestants, #priests in the Church of England were allowed to marry. They could deliver sermons in English, not Latin. To please Catholics, the Church of England kept some of the trappings of the Catholic service such as rich robes. In addition, church services were revised to be somewhat more acceptable to Catholics. #historywithted #history #fastfact #worldhistory #youtuber #teacher #instapic #knowledge #historybuff #education #homeschool #publicschool #nerd #geek #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachers   #teachersfollowteachers #eurasia
Protestantism #Protestantism is a branch of Christianity. It developed out of the Reformation, the 16th-century protest in Europe against beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church. Three distinct branches of Protestantism emerged at first. They were #Lutheranism , based on the teachings of #MartinLuther in Germany; #Calvinism , based on the teachings of #JohnCalvin in Switzerland; and #Anglicanism , which was established by King #HenryVIII in England. Protestantism spread throughout Europe in the 16th century, and later, the world. As differences in beliefs developed, new denominations formed. Still determined that his subjects should remain #Catholic , #CharlesV went to war against the Protestant princes. Even though he defeated them in 1547, he failed to force them back into the Catholic Church. In 1555, Charles, weary of fighting, ordered all German princes, both Protestant and Catholic, to assemble in the city of #Augsburg . There the princes agreed that each ruler would decide the religion of his state. This famous religious settlement was known as the #PeaceofAugsburg . The #EnglishReformation The Catholic Church soon faced another great challenge to its authority, this time in England. Unlike Luther, the man who broke England’s ties to the Roman Catholic Church did so for political and personal, not religious, reasons. #historywithted #history #fastfact #worldhistory #youtuber #teacher #instapic #knowledge #historybuff #education #homeschool #publicschool #nerd #geek #blogger #socialscience #socialchange
The heart of God yearns over His earthly children with a love stronger than death. In giving up His Son, He has poured out to us all heaven in one gift. The Saviour’s life and death and intercession, the ministry of angels, the pleading of the Spirit, the Father working above and through all, the unceasing interest of heavenly beings—all are enlisted in behalf of man’s redemption. -{SC 21} #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 moment when Sweden is so "safe", ppl want or considering the possibility of moving back to Africa 🙃. . #repost @sdistheshit Rapparen Ken Ring medverkade i norska TV-programmet ”Trygdekontoret” som sändes på NRK i våras, och då sa han såhär om läget i Sverige: – Idag är det öppet gangsterkrig. Min storebror blev mördad. Jag har 18, kanske 19 polare som har blivit mördade. Det är en annan verklighet idag i Sverige, en helt annan värld, – och kollar man på de journalister och de människor som sitter och tycker allting, de har aldrig någonsin satt sin fot i Rinkeby, Hässelby eller Fittja, – Man har glömt bort de här sexåringarna som idag ska börja skolan. Där har vi hur mycket invandrare som helst, och hur mycket folk i förorterna som helst, och det blir bara mer och mer och mer och mer. Det kommer att spricka alltså. Jag har redan börjat fundera på att flytta till Afrika. – För att det är tryggare? frågar programledaren. – Det är tryggare. Min son är nio år – han sa till mig ”hallå pappa, varför är det farligare i Hässelby än vad det är i Nairobi i Kenya?” Det är en tankeställare. Jag tror till och med att det är för sent, att det inte går att förändra. Jag tror att det är kört. Jag tror att, inom 20 år så har vi öppet krig på gatorna i Stockholm. #sdistheshit .

Jesus sought to correct the world's false standard of judging the value of men. He took His position with the poor, that He might lift from poverty the stigma that the world had attached to it. He has stripped from it forever the reproach of scorn, by blessing the poor, the inheritors of God's kingdom. He points us to the path He trod, saying, “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” [Luke 9] Verse 23. Ibid., 197, 198. -{CSA 62.7} We are all woven together in the great web of humanity, and whatever we can do to benefit and uplift others will reflect in blessing upon ourselves. The law of mutual dependence runs through all classes of society.

📝☑️ Одно из самых важных событий в мировой истории – Реформация XVI столетия – разделила христианский мир, расчленив католическую Европу и основало новое направление в христианстве – протестантизм ➗➕ ⚜️ Однако это «вулканическое» движение имело неброские начала: в 1517 году немецкому монаху Мартину Лютеру просто подумалось, что Римско-католической церкви, к которой он принадлежал, следовало измениться. В итоге оказалось, что он положил основание новому образу мышления и новому течению в христианстве 🌊 📌 SOLO SKRIPTURA  1.Только Писание;  2.Только вера;  3.Только благодать; 4.Только Христос;  5.Только Богу слава. Пять основных принципов, которые были выдвинуты Реформацией и которые сейчас составляют основу вероучения протестантских церквей 📜 📌 Когда в 16 веке народы Северной Европы обратились к Библии, это сделало их жизнь самой лучшей в мире! 📈📊 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #библия #bible #soloskriptura #мартинлютер #реформация #европа #протестанты #протестантизм #толькописание #тольковера #толькоблагодать #толькоХристос #толькоБогуслава #Jesus #Christ #protestantism #reformation #еurope #northernеurope
The Lord Jesus has summoned the world to hear. “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” Let all listen with submissive, reverent attention. He repeats the words given Him by the One who said, “This is my beloved Son.... Hear ye him.” Who is listening to the words which are light and life to all who receive them? Will men and women consider how God regards the creatures He has made? He formed man's mind. We do not think one noble thought that does not come from Him. He knows all the mysterious workings of the human mind, for did He not make it? God sees that sin has debased and degraded man, but He looks upon him with pity and compassion; for He sees that Satan has him in his power.... -{LHU 253.3} #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

A large share of the Christian world have no right to call themselves Christians. Their habits, their extravagance, and general treatment of their own bodies are violations of physical law and contrary to the Bible. They are working out for themselves, in their course of life, physical suffering and mental and moral feebleness. -{Con 58.3} Through his devices, Satan, in many respects, has made the domestic life one of care and complicated burdens in order to meet the demands of fashion. His purpose in doing this is to keep minds occupied so fully with the things of this life that they can give but little attention to their highest interest. Intemperance in eating and in dressing has so engrossed the minds of the Christian world that they do not take time to become intelligent in regard to the laws of their being, that they may obey them. To profess the name of Christ is of but little account if the life does not correspond with the will of God revealed in His word. -{Con 58.4} #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

When called to drink of the cup of tribulation and sorrow, and when tempted in his misery to say, “My strength and my hope is perished from the Lord,” he recalled the providences of God in his behalf and triumphantly exclaimed, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him” (Lamentations 3:18, 22–24). -{PK 421} #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
God gives man no permission to violate the laws of his being. But man, through yielding to Satan's temptations to indulge intemperance, brings the higher faculties in subjection to the animal appetites and passions, and when these gain the ascendancy, man, who was created a little lower than the angels—with faculties susceptible of the highest cultivation—surrenders to the control of Satan. And he gains easy access to those who are in bondage to appetite. Through intemperance, some sacrifice one half, and others two thirds, of their physical, mental, and moral powers, and become playthings for the enemy. -{Con 57.1} Those who would have clear minds to discern Satan's devices must have their physical appetites under the control of reason and conscience. The moral and vigorous action of the higher powers of the mind are essential to the perfection of Christian character, and the strength or the weakness of the mind has very much to do with our usefulness in this world and with our final salvation. The ignorance that has prevailed in regard to God's law in our physical nature is deplorable. Intemperance of any kind is a violation of the laws of our being. Imbecility is prevailing to a fearful extent. Sin is made attractive by the covering of light which Satan throws over it, and he is well pleased when he can hold the Christian world in their daily habits under the tyranny of custom, like the heathen, and allow appetite to govern them. -{Con 57.2} #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
True sanctification comes through the working out of the principle of love. “God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” 1 John 4:16. The life of him in whose heart Christ abides, will reveal practical godliness. The character will be purified, elevated, ennobled, and glorified. Pure doctrine will blend with works of righteousness; heavenly precepts will mingle with holy practices. -{AA 560.1} Those who would gain the blessing of sanctification must first learn the meaning of self-sacrifice. The cross of Christ is the central pillar on which hangs the “far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” “If any man will come after Me,” Christ says, “let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” 2 Corinthians 4:17; Matthew 16:24. It is the fragrance of our love for our fellow men that reveals our love for God. It is patience in service that brings rest to the soul. It is through humble, diligent, faithful toil that the welfare of Israel is promoted. God upholds and strengthens the one who is willing to follow in Christ's way. -{AA 560.2} Sanctification is not the work of a moment, an hour, a day, but of a lifetime. It is not gained by a happy flight of feeling, but is the result of constantly dying to sin, and constantly living for Christ. Wrongs cannot be righted nor reformations wrought in the character by feeble, intermittent efforts. It is only by long, persevering effort, sore discipline, and stern conflict, that we shall overcome. We know not one day how strong will be our conflict the next. So long as Satan reigns, we shall have self to subdue, besetting sins to overcome; so long as life shall last, there will be no stopping place, no point which we can reach and say, I have fully attained. Sanctification is the result of lifelong obedience. -{AA 560.3} #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 truths of the Word of God meet man's great practical necessity—the conversion of the soul through faith. These grand principles are not to be thought too pure and holy to be brought into the daily life. They are truths which reach to heaven and compass eternity, yet their vital influence is to be woven into human experience. They are to permeate all the great things and all the little things of life. -{FLB 123.2} How far we come from representing the character of Christ! But we must lay hold of His merits by living faith, and claim Him as our Saviour. He died on Calvary to save us. Each should make it a personal work between God and his own soul, as though there were no one in the world but himself. When we exercise personal faith, our hearts will not be as cold as an iron wedge; we shall be able to realize what is meant by the psalmist when he says, “Blessed is he ... whose sin is covered.” Psalm 32:1. -{FLB 123.3} God invites us to prove for ourselves the reality of His Word, the truth of His promises. He bids us “taste and see that the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8.... He declares, “Ask, and ye shall receive.” John 16:24. His promises will be fulfilled. They have never failed; they never can fail. -{FLB 123.4} #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

God will prove His people.... If the message [the 1844 proclamation] had been of as short duration as many of us supposed, there would have been no time for them to develop character. Many moved from feeling, not from principle and faith, and this solemn, fearful message stirred them. It wrought upon their feelings, and excited their fears, but did not accomplish the work which God designed that it should.... -{Mar 43.2} God leads His people on, step by step. He brings them up to different points calculated to manifest what is in the heart. Some endure at one point, but fall off at the next. At every advanced point the heart is tested and tried a little closer. If the professed people of God find their hearts opposed to this straight work, it should convince them that they have a work to do to overcome.... Some are willing to receive one point; but when God brings them to another testing point, they shrink from it and stand back, because they find that it strikes directly at some cherished idol. Here they have opportunity to see what is in their hearts that shuts out Jesus. They prize something higher than the truth, and their hearts are not prepared to receive Jesus. Individuals are tested and proved a length of time to see if they will sacrifice their idols.... Those who come up to every point, and stand every test, and overcome, be the price what it may, have heeded the counsel of the True Witness, and they will receive the latter rain, and thus be fitted for translation. -{Mar 43.3} #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
5. Confia no SENHOR de todo o teu coração e não te apoies no teu próprio entendimento. 6. Reconhece o SENHOR em todos os teus caminhos, e Ele endireitará as tuas veredas. (Provérbios, 3) #faith #christianisme #jesus #yeshua #god #jeovah #protestantism #bible #calvinism #crist #evangelismo
"And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out, Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, and Who am I that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?" Luke l:43. "Catholics have never worshipped Mary.  She is only human like ourselves.  But we respect her so much because God chose her to be the New Ark of the Covenant to bear His only begotten Son. There are different levels of honor given to God, Mary and the saints.  To God alone is given adoration and worship called latria.  Special veneration, not worship, is given to Mary and is called hyperdulia and dulia for the saints whom God has glorified in heaven.  Worship (latria) is so far from honor (dulia) as creation is from the creator."* For me, we can't love her more than Jesus ever did, for her part in protecting, caring for and nurturing the very one Who saved our soul. How some can dismiss her, astounds me. They would say Catholics are worshipping her, and that is just not true. People who don't take the time to consider her role, drone on and on about the pitfalls and sin of worshipping her when no one, is worshipping her. It takes effort to ponder all she did, to think about all the places we find her in New Testament scriptures. It takes effort to research honor versus worship. It takes effort to find her in the forshadowing scriptures of the Old Testament. It takes effort to simply understand her and her role in the plan of redemption. Sadly, some still choose to throw stones without giving it a moment's thought. It's just easier. 🕯 *Quote taken from traditionalcatholicpriest.com article: "No Blessed Virgin Mary, No Christmas, No Salvation By Jesus." Photo credit unknown. Please share if you know.

I wish I could present this matter before our people just as I view it—the great offering made in behalf of man. Justice asked for the sufferings of a man. Christ, equal with God, gave the sufferings of a God. He needed no atonement Himself. It was for man—all for man.... His depth of agony was proportionate to the dignity and grandeur of His character. Never shall we see and comprehend the intense anguish of the sufferings of the spotless Lamb of God until we feel how deep is the pit from which we have been delivered, how grievous the sin of which humanity is guilty, and by faith grasp the full and entire pardon. -{UL 219.4} Here is where thousands are failing. They do not really believe that Jesus pardons them individually. They fail to take God at His word. He has assured us that He is faithful that hath promised to forgive us and be just to His own law. His mercy is not wanting in anything. Were there one defective link in the chain, then we are hopelessly ruined in our sins.... There is not one flaw in it, not one missing link. Oh, precious redemption! Why do we not bring this great truth more fully into our lives? How broad it is, that God for Christ's sake forgives us—me, even me—the moment we ask Him to, in living faith, believing that He is fully able to do this.—Letter 85, July 24, 1886, to Uriah Smith, editor of the Review and Herald. -{UL 219.5} #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
Essay on our depravity and God's grace with quotes by Charles Spurgeon #Christianity #Protestantism
I also saw many do not realize what they must be in order to live in the sight of the Lord without a high priest in the sanctuary through the time of trouble. Those who receive the seal of the living God and are protected in the time of trouble must reflect the image of Jesus fully. -{Mar 41.2} I saw that many were neglecting the preparation so needful and were looking to the time of “refreshing” and the “latter rain” to fit them to stand in the day of the Lord and to live in His sight. Oh, how many I saw in the time of trouble without a shelter! They had neglected the needful preparation; therefore they could not receive the refreshing that all must have to fit them to live in the sight of a holy God. Those who ... fail to purify their souls in obeying the whole truth ... will come up to the time of the falling of the plagues, and then see that they needed to be hewed and squared for the building. But there will be ... no Mediator to plead their cause before the Father. Before this time the awfully solemn declaration has gone forth, “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.” -{Mar 41.3} #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 There all who have wrought with unselfish spirit will behold the fruit of their labors. The outworking of every right principle and noble deed will be seen. Something of this we see here. But how little of the result of the world’s noblest work is in this life manifest to the doer! {Hvn 151.1} How many toil unselfishly and unweariedly for those who pass beyond their reach and knowledge! Parents and teachers lie down in their last sleep, their lifework seeming to have been wrought in vain; they know not that their faithfulness has unsealed springs of blessing that can never cease to flow; only by faith they see the children they have trained become a benediction and an inspiration to their fellow men, and the influence repeat itself a thousandfold. Many a worker sends out into the world messages of strength and hope and courage, words that carry blessing to hearts in every land; but of the results he, toiling in loneliness and obscurity, knows little. So gifts are bestowed, burdens are borne, labor is done. Men sow the seed from which, above their graves, others reap blessed harvests. They plant trees, that others may eat the fruit. They are content here to know that they have set in motion agencies for good. In the hereafter the action and reaction of all these will be seen. {Hvn 151.2} Of every gift that God has bestowed, leading men to unselfish effort, a record is kept in heaven. To trace this in its wide-spreading lines, to look upon those who by our efforts have been uplifted and ennobled, to behold in their history the outworking of true principles—this will be one of the studies and rewards of the heavenly school. {Hvn 151.3} There we shall know even as also we are known. There the loves and sympathies that God has planted in the soul will find truest and sweetest exercise. The pure communion with holy beings, the harmonious social life with the blessed angels and with the faithful ones of all ages, the sacred fellowship that binds together “the whole family in heaven and earth” all are among the experiences of the hereafter. {Hvn 152.1}
