Why Do People Argue So Much? By Carlton Foster – October 21, 2019 People argue because they are exercising their normal tendencies to be punitive. We are quick to inflict or punish a person that you in your mind realized or perceived that somebody did or say something wrong. You as the judge and jury […]
No Confrontation By Carlton Foster – September 24, 2019 Christian should avoid confrontation! There are many examples in the Bible which show that it is best to stay away from confrontation. The first one that I will point out is when the Jews wanted to kill Jesus as shown in Matthew 26:3, “Then the chief […]
Angelic Visitation It was in the year 1997; I was teaching a Taekwondo class for a friend of mine at his evening school on the 2nd floor of a building on Atlantic Boulevard near US1, in Pompano, Florida. I had just become a baptized Christian; my family and I just came back from San Antonio […]
WHY DO SOME PEOPLE FAIL: In their Christian Experience? When and how did some of us fail with this new birth, this newness of life? Why do some people fail in their Christian experience? We no longer do active work for God, we do not actively witness to others for the sole purpose of winning […]
I was baptized: washed in the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. I am a new person: walking in the newness of life — Christian life. But there are things that I still do. A change comes over me, but I am not changed because I am still doing the same things. Was I really change?
There seems to be confusion about what are justice and mercy, and these confusions stem from a person’s definition of justice or mercy.
The all-knowing God, who is everywhere, wants to live in the sanctuary that we should build? What kind of Sanctuary is this that God will live in?
This 24 hour period he blessed and declared it as holy – that is, to be set apart from the other days. If we concentrate and understand the purpose of this period of time, then we will not forsake to use the time wisely.
“An idea that does not result in some action will remain an idea only and will not materialize.” The power of faith is in the action that follows as a result of the belief or idea. If you have an idea, but there are no actions, then thy faith is little.
God said to Moses that he should build a holy sanctuary and furnished it exactly as he wanted it. Our churches today have no resemblance of the sanctuary God instructed Moses to build. If our churches – holy sanctuaries are different, why do we want some things to be the same when most things are different?
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come
So if there is an enemy that we have an “ought” with, or if we have an “ought” with the Devil, or demons, or his representatives that reviled in darkness, do we still need to leave our gift before the altar, and go our ways to first reconciled with them, and then come back and offer our gifts?
After reading Revelation 15, I noticed an important message from John that most people overlooked and may not have studied it well. I noticed that the Saints of God were in Heaven before the 7-Last Plagues started.
The investigative judgment is a unique Seventh-day Adventist doctrine, which asserts that the divine judgment of professed Christians has been in progress since 1844. It is intimately related to the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and was described by the church’s prophet and pioneer Ellen G. White as one of the pillars of Adventist belief.
There is a great danger in the way we have been personally operating and functioning as individuals. We could be hurting ourselves without realizing it when we listen to stories
Why are some professed Christians, who seem to have been worshiping God, worshiping Jesus Christ for a long time, still have not changed into acting and behaving like Jesus? Could it be that they are still worshiping other gods?
Abstention is not good! It is bad! When a spiritual matter is before you, and you need to take a stand, but if you decline to vote for or against a proposal or motion, when your practice is to restrain oneself from indulging in something spiritual, you are behaving like the Laodicean.
We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord. Accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.
Recently I noticed that there is a point of attack against Christians, that the Devil is using in the last days of earth’s history, and it seems to have a high degree of success. This point of attack I called the “Soft-Spot”, which is our feelings.
