The Way, Truth & Life

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 7:13,14
the truth,
And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:32
and the life:
In him was life;
and the life was the light of men.
John 1:4
John 14:6

E.G.W. Prayer Series: For the Sick

Ministry of Healing p.227

"In the word of God we have instruction relative to special prayer for the recovery of the sick. But the offering of such prayer is a most solemn act, and should not be entered upon without careful consideration. In many cases of prayer for the healing of the sick, that which is called faith is nothing less than presumption.
Many persons bring disease upon themselves by their self-indulgence. They have not lived in accordance with natural law or the principles of strict purity. Others have disregarded the laws of health in their habits of eating and drinking, dressing, or working. Often some form of vice is the cause of feebleness of mind or body. Should these persons gain the blessing of health, many of them would continue to pursue the same course of heedless transgression of God's natural and spiritual laws, reasoning that if God heals them in answer to prayer, they are at liberty to continue their unhealthful practices and to indulge perverted appetite without restraint. If God were to work a miracle in restoring these persons to health, He would be encouraging sin. It is labor lost to teach people to look to God as a healer of their infirmities, unless they are taught also to lay aside unhealthful practices."
Is any sick among you?
let him call for the elders of the church;
and let them pray over him,
James 5:14

Puritan Corner - Our Combat, Our Faith

Assurance encourateth us in our combat;
it delivers us not from it.

and this is the victory that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

Creation Moment 1/31/2015 - Slowing Light

I form the light,
Isaiah 45:7
"A universal rule of thumb may need to be rewritten: Light moving freely through empty space does not necessarily travel at the speed of light.
As physicists have come to know, light particles traveling through empty space should zip along at exactly 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second). This velocity is what's usually referred to as "the speed of light".

But now, new research suggests there is an exception to this rule: Light will not travel at top speed in empty space if the "structure" of the light is first changed.

Something as simple as a magnifying glass can change the structure of light, according to the authors of the new study. The lens collects the diffuse light and brings it together into a single, bright point.

For photons, or particles of light, getting out of a glass of water is like trying to leave a crowded party: The photon keeps bumping into other "partygoers" (the water molecules), preventing the little light ray from taking a straight path to the door. The photon moves quickly between each water molecule, but a zigzag path between two points is slower than a straight one, so ultimately, the photon is delayed.  

While traveling through the medium, the photons are always moving at their maximum velocity (the speed of light), but are slowed down by the altered path. So, once the photon escapes into open space and resumes a straight path, it should also jump back up to its maximum speed. But according to the new study, changing the structure of the light can effectively keep the photon traveling on a zigzag path, and slow it down.

A photon is a unit of light that cannot be broken up into smaller pieces. However, a light wave technically has multiple components, the researchers said." Livecience

Does this not change "calculations" about "time" in the universe?

IN the NEWS - Oh, I know the ANSWER to that one...

"Dinosaurs were flourishing in Europe right before their rapid demise, according to a new study. This would help confirm that dinosaurs the world over were wiped out by an asteroid’s impact 66 million years ago - a theory sometimes questioned due to lack of non-North American fossil evidence.
The European fossil record, just as that from North America, suggests a rather sudden event that swept quasi-instantaneously through ecosystems that otherwise were doing quite well,” team leader Zoltan Csiki-Sava, of the University of Bucharest, said. “We do not see a pattern of dwindling diversity that finally peaked in the extinction event itself, but instead one of rich and diverse local faunas distributed across the European islands, faunas that were abruptly decimated without any prior warning.”" FOX

Oh, I know the ANSWER to that one...
And it came to pass after seven days,
that the waters of the flood
were upon the earth.

That would explain the SUDDEN fossilization now wouldn't it?

E.G.W. Prayer Series: Thy Will Be Done

Christ's Object Lessons p.55

"Prayer is not to work any change in God;
it is to bring us into harmony with God.

When we make request of Him,
He may see that it is necessary for us to search our hearts
and repent of sin.
Therefore He takes us through test and trial, He brings us through humiliation, that we may see what hinders the working of His Holy Spirit through us."
Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
Luke 11:2

Creation Moment 1/30/2015 - Delaware's Darwin Day

"An atheist’s request for the state of Delaware to celebrate “Charles Darwin Day” has been approved, with Democratic Gov. Jack Markell issuing a proclamation naming Feb. 12, 2015, as the day of commemoration.
The declaration was reportedly granted after Chuck Dyke, a member of the Delaware Atheist Meetup, requested the action, according to Friendly Atheist blogger Hemant Mehta.
A form on the Delaware state website allows for residents to make requests for “special recognitions,” which can include events ranging from birthday mentions for elderly residents to the naming of special days. It is unclear which, if any, proposals for official proclamations are rejected, though the wide array of potential occasions for consideration are listed on the site.
The text of the “Charles Darwin Day” proclamation that is published on the Friendly Atheist blog honors Darwin for the “development of the Theory of Evolution,” calling it the “foundation of modern biology” and an “essential tool in understanding the development of life on earth.”" TheBlaze

SDA News - E.G.W. Street

"The city of La Romana in southeast Dominican Republic
yesterday declared it will rename one of its streets after Ellen G. White, one of the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
The announcement came during a special ceremony held at La Romana’s municipal building. In attendance were the mayor, Maritza Suero, city officials, and Seventh-day Adventist world church President Ted N. C. Wilson.

Words are not enough to greet such high personalities of the Christian world here today to this city of La Romana which we have declared it as God’s city,” said Suero, as she welcomed top Adventist leaders from around the world, local leaders and Church members.

Formerly 7th Street, Elena G. de White Street is located in the Villa Alacrán community and connects two neighboring communities. District Councilman Wanchy Medina was credited for the idea of renaming the street.

Medina, who grew up as a Seventh-day Adventist, was inspired to recognize Ellen G. White because she was an authority who has made a significant contribution to the world in health and many different subjects, he said.  The street is one block from the 60-member La Fe de Villa Alacran Adventist Church.

G.T. Ng, secretary of the Adventist world church and chair of the White Estate Board of Trustees, said this is the first time a street has been named after Ellen G. White. “This comes on the 100th anniversary of Mrs. White death,” he noted.

“This event means so much to our members here in the Dominican Republic,” Acevedo said. “Our membership respects and appreciates greatly the ministry of Ellen G. White. Our members continue to benefit from her instruction, and this street sign will point to the gems found in her writings.”"

Creation Moment 1/29/2015 - Shattering Evolution

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen,
being understood by the 
things that are made,
even his eternal power and Godhead;
so that they are without excuse:
Romans 1:20
"Mutations are supposed to be evolution's engine since they generate variations from which nature then selects. Several different reports devastated this evolutionary icon.

* One report revealed the near-impossibility of mutations adding information to DNA, given the discovery that DNA encodes two layers of coding in the same space. Changing one letter affects both codes.

* Another study revealed that cells would begin removing useless gene sequences long before they had a chance to accumulate enough mutations to evolve into a new and useful gene.

* A third report concluded that the vast majority of mutations produce too tiny a difference for any natural process to see or select, causing slightly harmful mutations to accumulate far faster than any helpful ones could.

Any one of these results warns of disaster for evolution's supposed mutation engine, but together they completely shut it down." ICR

Don't you LOVE it when SCIENCE shatters evolution?

Sanctuary Doctrine: Why do "Evangelicals" despise it?

"Evangelical theologians modified the Sanctuary doctrine by reducing it to a literary expression that uplifts the central doctrine of justification by faith alone. Besides, the very idea of judgment contradicts the Evangelical notion of the assurance of salvation." Fernando Canale

But there is a JUDGMENT
Paul says -  ...for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Romans 14:10

There are 3 Phases of the JUDGMENT
1) Investigative (to see who is saved and who is lost) before His return
A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
Daniel 7:10

2) Saints Judge (to see that God made the right choice about the wicked) during millennium
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Revelation 20:4

3) Wicked Judge (after the millennium) that God made the right decision as to them
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Revelation 20:12

E.G.W. Prayer Series: Kneel...

Prophets & Kings p.48

"The Lord is a great God,
And a great King above all gods. . . .
O come, let us worship and bow down:
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker

 Psalm 95:3-6.
"Both in public and in private worship it is our privilege to bow on our knees before God when we offer our petitions to Him.
* Jesus, our example, "kneeled down, and prayed." Luke 22:41.
* Of his disciples it is recorded that they, too, "kneeled down, and prayed." Acts 9:40.
* Paul declared, "I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:14.
* In confessing before God the sins of Israel, Ezra knelt. See Ezra 9:5.
* Daniel "kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God." Daniel 6:10."

Creation Moment 1/28/2015 - Order from disorder?

"Many creationists argue that evolution requires order to come about from disorder—complexity to come about naturally from simplicity—in defiance of the Second Law of Thermodynamics (cf. Miller, 2013).

The evolutionist retorts that the Earth is not a closed system—localized pockets of order can come from disorder, as long as energy is added to those pockets (e.g., an orderly room can come from a disorderly room if work or energy is applied to the room). The evolutionist argues that the Earth is a system that is, in fact, receiving useful external energy (e.g., from the Sun). So, it is presumed that evolution could happen.

While it may be true that extra-terrestrial energy could cause pockets of order from disorder on the Earth, it does not follow that atheistic evolution could happen. As we have shown elsewhere, regardless of the extra-terrestrial energy reaching Earth,
*the evidence confirms that life does not come from non-life (Miller, 2012a),
*laws of science do not write themselves (Miller, 2012b),
*matter and energy do not last forever
*or spontaneously generate (Miller, 2013),
*and information is not added to the genome through mutations (cf. this issue of R&R).

Furthermore, while energy can sometimes bring about pockets of order from disorder, energy alone is not what is required. It must be the right kind of energy to do so. While the Sun can be an excellent source of useful energy, it can also be a dangerous source of serious damage—causing deaths, deserts, and damaged property."AP

All things were made by him;
and without him was not any thing made that was made.

E.G.W. Prayer Series: With Bible Study

Great Controversy p.599,600

"The Bible should never be studied without prayer.
The Holy Spirit alone can cause us to feel the importance of those things easy to be understood, or prevent us from wresting truths difficult of comprehension.
We should make the psalmist's petition our own: "Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law." Psalm 119:18. Temptations often appear irresistible because, 
 through neglect of prayer and the study of the Bible,
the tempted one cannot readily remember God's promises and meet Satan with the Scripture weapons."

David & Goliath CASE STUDY

What past triumphs did David remember?
And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth:
and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear:
1 Samuel 17:34-36

David received Discouraging words from:
Relatives-  And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.
1 Samuel 17:8
Friendlies- And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.
1 Samuel 17:33
Enemies - And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
1 Samuel 17:43

David's attitude toward the conflict at hand-
And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
1 Samuel 17:26

2 Points about the Lord made by David -
And all this assembly shall know that 1) the LORD saveth not with sword and spear:
for 2) the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands.
1 Samuel 17:47

Remember that behind every challenge rages the spiritual war being fought
on this space fabric of time as part of this GREAT CONTROVERSY.....

Who was the victor that day?
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone,
and smote the Philistine, and slew him;

Creation Moment 1/27/2015 - Avondale Rebellion

TO AVONDALE - Professing themselves to be wise,

they became fools,

Romans 1:22
"In the most recent 2015 issue of Christian Spirituality and Science published by Avondale College (a Seventh-day Adventist institution under the South Pacific Division of Seventh-day Adventists) there are three articles, all of which appear to challenge the firm position of the Seventh-day Adventist Church on the literal nature of the creation week described in Genesis. The authors of these papers suggest that the church should put aside such antiquated 19th century notions and accept or at least tolerate the idea that life has existed and evolved on this planet over the course of at least a  couple billion years or so. Of course, this comes at a time when the church as an organization is considering strengthening its statement of fundamental beliefs by adding language to the existing statement on creation that makes the church’s understanding of literal and recent nature the “creation week” quite clear and unambiguous.
Consider, for example, the article written by Dr. Lynden J. Rogers (Dean of the Faculty of Science and Mathematics at Avondale College) entitled, “Old Universe But Young Life?” In this paper professor Rogers briefly reviews the history of the church’s understanding of the origin of the Earth and the Universe. He then points out that many in the church leadership currently accept that the universe and even the material of the Earth is quite likely very old indeed! – while still holding to the notion that life on Earth must still be of recent origin." AdVindicate

The works of the most intellectual skeptic are works of a mind prostituted to the service of the enemy, and shall those who claim to be
reformers, who seek to lead the children and youth in the right way, in the path cast up, imagine that God will be pleased with having them present to the youth that which will misrepresent His character, placing Him in a false light before the young? Shall the sentiments of unbelievers, the expressions of dissolute men, be advocated as worthy of the student's attention, because they are the productions of men whom the world admires as great thinkers? Shall men professing to believe in God, gather from these unsanctified authors their expressions and sentiments, and treasure them up as precious jewels to be stored away among the riches of the mind?—God forbid” Fundamentals of Christian Education, page 175 E.G.W.

E.G.W. Prayer Series: Real Reason for Prayer

Acts of the Apostles p.532

"Man's obedience can be made perfect only by the incense of Christ's righteousness, which fills with divine fragrance every act of obedience. The part of the Christian is to persevere in overcoming every fault. Constantly he is to pray to the Savior to heal the disorders of his sin-sick soul."

 Watch and pray,
that ye enter not into temptation:
 the spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41

Footsteps of Paul: Turning the World Upside Down

Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them,
and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Opening and alleging,
that Christ must needs have suffered,
and risen again from the dead;
and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas;
and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.

But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy,
took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort,
and gathered a company,
and set all the city on an uproar,
and assaulted the house of Jason,
and sought to bring them out to the people.

And when they found them not,
they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying,
These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
Whom Jason hath received:
and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar,
saying that there is another king, one Jesus.

And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.
And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.

And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.
And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.

Acts 17:1-15
"Those who today teach unpopular truths need not be discouraged if at times they meet with no more favorable reception, even from those who claim to be Christians, than did Paul and his fellow workers from the people among whom they labored. The messengers of the cross must arm themselves with watchfulness and prayer, and move forward with faith and courage, working always in the name of Jesus. They must exalt Christ as man's mediator in the heavenly sanctuary, the One in whom all the sacrifices of the Old Testament dispensation centered, and through whose atoning sacrifice the transgressors of God's law may find peace and pardon."
Acts of the Apostles p.230 E.G.W.

Papal Notes - Pope to Lutherans

"Pope Francis met with an ecumenical delegation of the Lutheran Church on Thursday morning.
The group traveled from Finland to Rome to celebrate the Feast Day of St. Henry, the Patron saint of their country. The Lutheran Bishop said the following to the Pope

"We can bring light and hope to the lives of people in Finland, in Rome and around the world. Thank you for giving us an example of all this, Your Holiness.” 

"The fact that you have come to Rome is in itself a testament to the important efforts of unity. The fact that you can pray together, is a testimony of your faith, a faith that through the grace of God, can reach unity.”" RomeReports
....and all the world wondered after the beast.

Creation Moment 1/26/2015 - Light Undone

I form the light, and create darkness:
Isaiah 45:7
"A team of Scottish scientists has made light travel slower than the speed of light.
They sent photons - individual particles of light - through a special mask. It changed the photons' shape - and slowed them to less than light speed.

The photons remained travelling at the lower speed even when they returned to free space.
The experiment is likely to alter how science looks at light.

The speed of light is regarded as an absolute. It is 186,282 miles per second in free space.
Light propagates more slowly when passing through materials like water or glass but goes back to its higher velocity as soon as it returns to free space again.
Or at least it did until now.
Two and a half years ago, the experimenters set out to see if they could slow down light just a little - and keep it moving more slowly.
In a laboratory at Glasgow university, Dr Jacquiline Romero, Dr Daniel Giovannini and colleagues built what amounts to a racetrack for photons, the individual particles of light.

Light travelling at less than the speed of light. Whose bright idea was that?
It grew from a conversation between Prof Daniele Faccio at Heriot-Watt University and Prof Miles Padgett at Glasgow.

There are some practical implications. Light is used to make extremely precise measurements such as how far the Moon is from Earth.
The good news is that we are not in for any nasty surprises on that scale. But researchers using large aperture lenses to accurately measure very short distances may be forced to take a second look for tardy photons." BBC

Uhm...Doesn't that possibility of light not being constant possibly mess up all "scientific" measurements of time in cosmology? Just saying....

E.G.W. Prayer Series: The Demoniac

Desire of Ages p.258

"The demoniac, in place of prayer, could utter only the words of Satan; yet the heart's unspoken appeal was heard. No cry from a soul in need, though it fail of utterance in words, will be unheeded."

 ....for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Romans 8:26

What is the BIBLE?

What is the Bible?
It is a book that begins & ends the same---

In the 1st story- God leans over and breathes the breath of life into Adam

In the last story- God leans over and wipes away all tears from their eyes

It begins & ends with God leaning over & touching us----& the pages in between He is trying to tell us what He thinks of us.....that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. James 5:11

Who sent this Book?
And from Jesus Christ,
..the firstborn of the dead,...
 ....that loved us,
and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Revelation 1:5

What is it's Summary?
I wish above all things
* that thou mayest prosper (personal well being)
* and be in health, (physical well being)
* even as thy soul prospereth. (spiritual well being)
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
But I trust I shall shortly see thee,
and we shall speak face to face.

Health Note - Kale

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou in health,
3 John 1:2
"If you have not tried kale yet, now is the time. This super
green is packed to max with nutrition that puts it high on the list of the world's healthiest foods. Even spinach cannot come close in comparison to the number of nutrients that kale provides. Dark leafy greens like spinach are important for skin and hair, bone health, and provide protein, iron, vitamins and minerals.

The possible health benefits of consuming kale include
improving blood glucose control in diabetics,
lowering the risk of cancer,
lowering blood pressure,
improving bone health,
lowering the risk of developing asthma and more.

Kale is a leafy green cruciferous vegetable that is chock-full of essential vitamins A, C and K as well as minerals like copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. A cup of fresh kale has only about 40 calories but packs almost 3 grams of protein."

GOSPEL GEM: Breaking of the rock (Peter)

Synergy of Matthew 26:69-75/Mark 14:29,30,66-72/Luke 22:54-61/John 18:15-27
But Peter said unto him,
Although all shall be offended,
yet will not I.
And Jesus saith unto him,
Verily I say unto thee,
That this day, even in this night,
before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house.

And Peter followed afar off.
Now Peter sat without in the palace: 
And the servants and officers stood there,
who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold:
and they warmed themselves:
and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself....and were set down together,
Peter sat down among them.

..there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
And when she saw Peter warming himself, 
and earnestly looked upon him, saying,
Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

And when he was gone out into the porch, 
another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there,
This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
And again he denied saying,
I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest.
I do not know the man.

And after a while came unto him they that stood by,
and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them;
for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
One of the servants of the high priest,
being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith,
Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
Then began he to curse and to swear, saying,
I know not the man.

And immediately the cock crew.
And the Lord turned,
and looked upon Peter.
 And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him,
Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 
And he went out, and wept bitterly.
Peter Adds - ...the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7
"Peter denied the Man of Sorrows in His acquaintance with grief in the hour of His humiliation. But he afterward repented and was reconverted. He had true contrition of soul and gave himself afresh to his Savior. With blinding tears he makes his way to the solitudes of the Garden of Gethsemane and there prostrates himself where he saw his Savior's prostrate form when the bloody sweat was forced from His pores by His great agony. Peter remembers with remorse that he was asleep when Jesus prayed during those fearful hours. His proud heart breaks, and penitential tears moisten the sods so recently stained with the bloody sweat drops of God's dear Son. He left that garden a converted man. He was ready then to pity the tempted. He was humbled and could sympathize with the weak and erring. He could caution and warn the presumptuous, and was fully fitted to strengthen his brethren."
Testimonies for the Church vol.3, p.416 E.G.W.

Creation Moment 1/25/2015 - Russian "Noah's Ark" Animal Project

"A university in Russia has unveiled an ambitious “Noah’s Ark” project to collect cell samples of all the living species on Earth.
Dr. Viktor Sadovnichy, president of Moscow State University, recently announced plans for the undertaking in a press conference. Likening the project to Noah’s Ark, Sadovnichy said the university aims to create a database of “every living thing on Earth.”
If this project is realized, it will mean a thrust forward in the history of Russian science, as this will be the first country in the world to create a true Noah’s Ark,” Sadovnichy said, as reported by Russian media sources. “It will involve the creation of a depository for the storing of every living thing on Earth, including not only living, but disappearing and extinct organisms. This is the challenge we have set for ourselves.”
It will have the facilities for cryogenic storage of the cell material samples with an opportunity to reproduce them in the future,” Sadovnichy explained. “It will also have information systems because there’s no need to keep absolutely everything in test tubes.”" ChristianNewsNetwork

Sabbath Sunsets - Like the Curtains

Sabbath Sunsets -are Like the Curtains.......

As you enter & exit His Sabbath, His Holy Place of Time ..Sunsets are like the curtains between the Holy Place & Outer Court & between the Holy Place & Most Holy Place.....the Sabbath {inner court} of Sanctified time of God.....

And God blessed the seventh day,
and sanctified it: because that in it
he had rested from all his work which
God created and made. 
Genesis 2:3

Irregular Unions Debate

This was recently brought up on RCR....(although it is about Catholics, the topic is raging in all Christendom currently)

If we confess our sins, 
he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, 
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9
"Most obviously, it's an argument about the correct approach to take to people in "irregular unions" -- cohabiting couples, same-sex couples, and divorced and remarried Catholics whose first marriages haven't been annulled. In particular: should some of those latter be given communion or should they not?" Russell Shaw

The Answer for all Christianity:

Co-habitating couples:
It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you,....
And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1 Corinthians 5:1,2
Gay Couples:
...for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:26,27
Divorce & Remarriage:
a) But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Matthew 5:32
b) For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband:But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases:
1 Corinthians 7:14,15

E.G.W. Prayer Series: Lesson of Enoch

Patriarchs & Prophets p.85

"Enoch .....Distressed by the increasing wickedness of the ungodly, and fearing that their infidelity might lessen his reverence for God, Enoch avoided constant association with them, and spent much time in solitude, giving himself to meditation and prayer. To him prayer was as the breath of the soul;"

And Enoch walked with God:

Creation Moment 1/24/2015 - Requires an Atlas?

"The first major analysis based on the Human Protein Atlas has been published, including a detailed picture of the proteins that are linked to cancer, the number of proteins present in the bloodstream, and the targets for all approved drugs on the market.
The Human Protein Atlas, a major multinational research project supported by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, recently launched (November 6, 2014) an open source tissue-based interactive map of the human protein. Based on 13 million annotated images, the database maps the distribution of proteins in all major tissues and organs in the human body, showing both proteins restricted to certain tissues, such as the brain, heart, or liver, and those present in all. As an open access resource, it is expected to help drive the development of new diagnostics and drugs,...
In the Science article, "Tissue-based Atlas of the Human Proteome," the approximately 20,000 protein coding genes in humans have been analysed and classified using a combination of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and antibody-based profiling, says the article's lead author, Mathias Uhlén, director of the Human Protein Atlas program.
The analysis shows that almost half of the protein-coding genes are expressed in a ubiquitous manner and thus found in all analysed tissues.
Approximately 15% of the genes show an enriched expression in one or several tissues or organs, including well-known tissue-specific proteins, such as insulin and troponin. The testes, or testicles, have the most tissue-enriched proteins followed by the brain and the liver.
The analysis suggests that approximately 3,000 proteins are secreted from the cells and an additional 5,500 proteins are located to the membrane systems of the cells." ScienceDaily

Your protein alone is so detailed & complex it requires an ATLAS....DESIGN = a DESIGNER
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous...

Psalm 139:14

Delight thyself also in the LORD;
and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the LORD;
trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Psalm 37:4,5
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children,
how much more shall your Father which is in heaven
give good things to them that ask him?
Matthew 7:11

But be careful what you DESIRE....ask yourself, will this DESIRE of yours bring you closer to God --OR-- lead you astray?

For there are bad DESIRES - But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction.
1 Timothy 6:9 NLT
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Titus 2:12

 Be anxious for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known unto God.
Philippians 4:6 NKJV

"Our God is a tender, merciful Father."
Steps to Christ p.72 E.G.W.

E.G.W. Prayer Series: More Prayer Needed

Testimonies for the Church vol.9 p.107

"There needs to be among us a great deal more of prayer and much
less of unbelief."

Wherefore also we pray always for you,
that our God would count you worthy of this calling,

IN the NEWS - Newsboys bombshell

"In an article published by the faith site Patheos on Wednesday, one of the original co-founders of the popular Christian band Newsboys revealed that he has since renounced Christianity and now identifies as an atheist.
I always felt uncomfortable with the strict rules imposed by Christianity,” George Perdikis, who co-founded the group in 1985, wrote in the guest post. “All I wanted to do was create and play rock and roll … and yet
most of the attention I received was focused on how well I maintained the impossible standards of religion. I wanted my life to be measured by my music, not by my ability to resist temptation.”
He provided a synopsis of his life story and how the became involved with the group that is now one of the largest in the history of contemporary Christian music. Perdikis said that after he was kicked out of a secular high school in 1981, his parents placed him into a Christian school, but he “only lasted six months there.”
It was during this time that he met two youth who had an interest in drumming. And since one of them, Peter Furler, “had a bigger drum kit than the other guy,” Perdikis decided to hang around Furler. The two began to play music together.
The choice to become a ‘Christian rock band’ was heavily influenced by Peter’s parents, Bill and Rosalie Furler,” he explained. “As fundamentalist Christians, the only acceptable form of music was the kind that worshiped God. Bill and Rosalie were like second parents to me and, for that reason, I never questioned their advice.”
The band later became known as the Newsboys, and after traveling with Whiteheart, went on to record their first album. Perdikis said that he co-wrote songs on the first two albums and toured with the Newsboys until he decided to quit in 1990 because he was more interested in music than spirituality.
As I carved out a life for myself away from the church, I began my own voyage of inquiry into what I believed. My perceptions started to transform when I became interested in cosmology in 1992,” he outlined. “I learned so much and was blown away by all the amazing scientific discoveries and facts. When my marriage dissolved in 2003, I turned my attention to human psychology.”
It was just years after his divorce that Perdikis didn’t want to have anything to do with God at all.
By 2007, I renounced Christianity once and for all and declared myself an atheist,” he said.
None of the original members of the Newsboys are currently with the band, but all except Perdikis still profess Christianity." ChristianNewsNetwork
