Nothing But Time


, , ,

It’s been some time now since I checked in to this little blog.  I guess you could say that the cares of this life have carried me away, busy days, endless responsibility, and whatever else we occupy our precious time on.  I am guilty of letting the cares of this life crowd out God, time spent with him in prayer and study become replaced with everything else under the sun.

The past 20 something days has left me with nothing but time to think and reflect on matters of my soul.  I’ve thought about what might be God’s plan in all of this, what is he wanting from us?  What do we do now that we are stripped of our loved ones, friends, jobs, social life and even our places of worship?  What is the purpose of all of this?  It’s as if God has gathered up all of our toys and friends and sent us to our rooms to think about what we have done.  That is exactly how this feels, grounded to my room until I think about what I have done.  I’ve had over 20 days to cry, throw a fit, shake my fists, ask why??  Now that I’m done throwing tantrums I’m reasoning with my face in my bible and my eyes fixed on Jesus.  Dare I ask, what do you want me to do? What is your plan in this?  Such a time as this, remember Esther?  Such a time as this. He placed us in this very time for a reason!!

Today I am clearer on what I believe he wants from his children.  Let’s start with the big one, for me anyway.  REPENTANCE!!!!  I admit I have been a prodigal daughter for the past several years, it started gradually but completely choked out my relationship with Jesus. As long as there is breath in my body it isn’t too late to go to my father and ask for his mercy and grace.

What else does God want from us?  He wants our time, he wants us to make him the center of our world and everything else will flow out of that relationship.  Praise him, pray to him, lean on him, trust him, obey him.  None of this is new, He wants our time and attention.  When our minds are fixed on him, he keeps us in perfect peace. (Isaiah 26:3) Even though the very ground may be shaking under us, he keeps us in perfect peace. Job said, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust him!” (Job 13:15)  Job lost everything he had including his health but he continued to trust and hope in God!!

Lastly, the great commission.  He wants us to do what he put us here to do in the first place.  He wants us to share the gospel!!!  Be in fervent prayer for the lost, share the good news of Jesus gospel to a lost and dying world.  Chances are you don’t know anyone who hasn’t heard of Jesus.  Many have formed an opinion about Jesus based on imperfect people who claim to follow him.  Many have a confused idea about what Jesus is all about, who he is and what the gospel is.  It’s so simple a child can understand.  You aren’t required to do anything but believe and trust that Jesus died and rose again on the third day, to pay for our sins.  He became a living sacrifice to atone for our sins, he paid the price, charged our debt of sin to his own account and set us free from the debt of sin.  It was a gift, not a wage that we have to work for.  He paid it all, all Jesus!!  Your good deeds, your baptism, your money, none of it will save you.  Only Jesus, it’s all him or it’s not him at all.

People, we have to place our trust in Jesus, he is our savior our provider.  Our provision doesn’t come from our job, our government, our own abilities. Consider the Lillie’s of the field, the birds of the air, how much more does he care for you? (Matthew 6)  How many times does the bible tell us to “fear not”, “do not be anxious for anything!”  Stand on his promises!! His yoke is easy his burden is light!  Fear not for he is with you! When we start to fear and anxiety creeps in it is because we have taken our eyes off of him!  Just like Peter who was walking on water, as soon as he took his eyes off Jesus he started to sink. His lack of faith and fear caused him to sink. I know every time I take my eyes off of Jesus I start to sink.

SO, fear not, don’t be anxious, trust in Jesus, keep your eyes on him, pray, praise and obey!!!  It’s that simple.

Election fever

This has been the most volatile election. I’ve lost family and friends because I stand up for what I believe in and sometimes that rubs people the wrong way. I’ve never been one to care what other people think of me because at the end of the day I have to live with my own decisions and opinions and my life is guided by my own beliefs and convictions. With that being said I believe everyone who votes does so without malice or ill will. We cast votes based on our beliefs, morals and our upbringing. We go to the polls and do the difficult task of choosing between a few people to do what we think will be best for us, our families and our country. Some of us are more passionate and vocal than others but none of this makes us bad people, racists, bigots or idiots. There was a lot at stake this election and it was not an easy decision. I think we all need to taste our words before we spit them out, including myself. We need to respect one another for our beliefs and differences instead of bashing and name calling. We need to remember to put our trust in God and not man because man is fallible and will always let us down and disappoint us. We have to stop the hatred and come together. Trump will be our president, he’s asked for prayer for God’s guidance and we should be doing that. I don’t know if he will be a good president, he may fail miserably but I’m hoping for all of our sakes that he doesn’t fail. I’m hoping for good things. I’m hoping to see bipartisanship and an end to all this division.  
Pray for our country, pray for our leaders!

Imperfect People

Lets face it, we’ve all been hurt or offended by something someone at church has said or done to us.  I mean after all we are imperfect people even after Christ saves us.  If we were perfect without faults we would have no need for Christ.  So what should our response be when we are hurt by people?  There are several responses we should have depended on the severity of the offense.

1. First we should take it to God in prayer and ask for his guidance in the matter.

2. If it’s something minor that you can forgive and move on then do so.

3. If it’s something a little more difficult to move on from and forgive quickly you must go to that person lovingly and talk it out. More than likely they didn’t intend to cause offense and may not even know they have offended you.

4. If talking to the person doesn’t give you a resolution then you must talk to your pastor about the offense so he can help you come to a resolution.

God’s word tells us to work things out with our brothers and sisters and to forgive, not once but many times forgive.  Christ forgave a multitude of sins in each of us so we are to follow him in forgiveness lest he withhold forgiveness from us.  I’ve seen people walk away from their church for some of the silliest reasons and this is not a reason to walk away.

Life has handed my family some rather difficult circumstances the last few years and I have missed so much going to church.  I’m hoping to get there this Sunday, I’m praying that God will help me overcome any obstacle in my path to push through and get back to Gods house!  Offense hasn’t been my reason for not being there but if you’ve walked away for offense or because of the cares of this life just get back!  Christians need to be in Gods house with Gods people now more than ever.



We Will Rejoice In It


, ,

Psalm 118:24  This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Have you ever thought about that verse?  We’ve all read it, heard it, said it and even sung the song.  But have we really thought about it?  This morning I was thinking about this verse and what it says and doesn’t say.

I noticed there are no if’s in this verse, if we are happy, if we are healthy, if we are wealthy, if everything is going our way, if there are no trials and tribulations to face.  No; there are no if’s, just simply we will rejoice and be glad in it.  Even if this is the worst day of our life thus far, we are to rejoice and be glad in it. Well how in the world do you rejoice when things are hard, when it seems like everything is falling apart?  We can rejoice in our GOD, even if there is a multitude of things for us to complain about and be sorrowful about, we should instead rejoice and be glad and focus on the LORD. Thanking God for his mercy, his grace, our salvation, and so much more.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

Paul tells us; from Roman prison while in chains, Rejoice in the Lord always.  In every situation we face we are to rejoice in the Lord.  This is where our peace comes from, keeping our focus on the Lord, rejoicing in him, trusting him, casting our cares upon him, meditating on his word day and night.  Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. This is so true, he does keep his child in perfect peace when his mind is stayed on the Lord.  So rejoice, rejoice always, rejoice forevermore in the God of our salvation!

Habakuk 3:18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the GOD of my salvation.

Still Around

Hello blog world, yes I am still around.  Still hanging in there on this roller coaster called life.  I sure wish I had more time for blogging but I am sure in a few very short years when my nest is completely empty I will have plenty of time.  But for now I will pop in when I can and spend every precious moment with my precious family that I can.

I hope those of you who may pop in here from time to time are doing well.

Today was a very busy day, two great church services, two great sermons and The Desolation of Smaug, the second Hobbit movie, in between.  The movie was fantastic, we had a great time!

One of the verses my pastor used during the message was John 10:24-27, which got me thinking about election.  And how does one who doesn’t believe in election deal with verses like these?  Not for arguments sake, just out of curiosity I would like to know.  If you have a hard time believing in election, how do you deal with these verses?  These verses, and others like them, give me assurance that God does in fact have an elect people that he chose from the foundation of the Earth.  And if you have more verses you would like to add in the comment section that point to election feel free to add them.

I pray that you all have a safe and happy Christmas, giving all the glory to our Savior Jesus Christ.

John 10:24-27

(KJV)24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. 25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:


2012 – It Was The Best of Times, It Was The Worst of Times

It was the best of times,

it was the worst of times,

it was the age of wisdom,

it was the age of foolishness,

it was the epoch of belief,

it was the epoch of incredulity,

it was the season of Light,

it was the season of Darkness,

it was the spring of hope,

it was the winter of despair.

Charles Dickens, A Tale Of Two Cities

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to close the book on 2012.  If I had to sum it up for you in a few short words I would use the words of Charles Dickens and say, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”  It was the worst year of my life to be honest, for reasons that need not be shared.  What I can share with you is that out of such darkness, despair, agony, broken hearts, grief and fear came light, hope, healing, new beginnings and stronger faith in Christ.  A new understanding of just how little control we have over our lives and how true it is that GOD is in control.

This year I have experienced peace that surpasses all human understanding, peace like a river in the midst of such pain, trusting each step taken to Christ’s guiding hand.  I know that Christ really does give you what you need to bear up under such painful things.  The greatest thing is that he doesn’t stop there, he doesn’t just give you what you need to bear it but he begins to bring scripture to life right before your eyes! It is an amazing, humbling thing to see God use a desperate situation that looks hopeless and begin to turn it around for his good.  Heavenly blessings born out of grief and despair.

  Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.  

As you go through these painful things that we all go through, one way or another in this life, cast your cares upon the Lord, place your trust in him, saturate your mind in his word and hang on to Jesus.  He is faithful, he sticks closer than a brother, he is a strong tower and he is mighty to save!! Wont you trust him today?  Please don’t wait, trust in him while it is still today.

Have a safe, happy and blessed New Year!!!


Stand Firm

2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth.  To this he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.  So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by our spoken word or by our letter.  Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.

True Sabbath Rest

I have a few links to share this morning on True Sabbath Rest, thank you T.Cassle for sending these to me.  The first link is from Critical Issues Commentary, Entering True Sabbath Rest by Ryan Habbena.

The second link is from Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible, Introduction to Colossians 2.

Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day – things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ. (Colossians 2:16-17)

Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard. For we who have believed enter that rest. (Hebrews 4:1-3a)

But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? You observe days and months and seasons and years. I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain. (Galatians 4:9-11)2

Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person regards one day above another, another regards every day alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. (Romans 14:4-5)4

My response to “The Shut Door- A Case Study”

I was given this link this morning to read, “The Shut Door – A Case Study”, while reading I took notes to document my concerns.  After reading this case study I am even more concerned and grieved about the Seventh Day Adventist church.  I thought I would share the link with you as well as my notes of concern.  I am sure there are things that I missed; I just notated what was glaringly obvious to me.  Feel free make any notations of concern that I may have missed in the comment section.  To make this easier to understand my words will be in red, A Case Study will be in green and scripture in bold black italics.


1.First and foremost, God’s word is not up for private interpretation.  This is where error creeps in, everyone wants the bible to mean what they want it to mean, it doesn’t work that way.  We use scripture to interpret scripture, referring to other parts of scripture to help us understand and give us the proper meaning with the help of the Holy Spirit teaching us what God intended in His word.  God doesn’t have a million different ways we can interpret His word, He has one way.  When everyone interprets it in their own way adding their own opinion’s they are essentially creating a God of their own.  Much like the golden calf. God speaks to us through His Son, through His word, the bible.

Hebrews 1:1-2 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.

God used the fathers and prophets to speak in times past, we now have the written word that is complete, there is no more need for prophets to speak because the canon of scripture is closed and cannot be added to.  People claiming to be modern day apostles and prophets are not speaking for God.

2.“But not even God will force love or compliance.” (from essential attitude of truth seekers paragraph)

When we look at God as forcing us into a love relationship we miss the mark – God shapes our will, He sets love and desire for Him in our hearts so that there is no force involved.  (“Free will is assumed from passages that teach human responsibility.” Bob Dewaay  )  Please refer to “Free Will or the Bondage of the Will: Definitions are Critical by Bob Dewaay; Critical Issues Commentary Issue Number 92 January/February 2006 (  This is a much more complex discussion than I can discuss in this response.

Romans 9:16 So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy.

Psalm 135:6 Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps.

3.“Nor will He impose His presuppositions on another. He is willing to “reason” (Isa. 1:8) with men and women regarding the soundness of His will and the validity of their presuppositions. By the “weight of evidence” honest, humble people have gladly acknowledged the trustworthiness of their Creator Friend.” (from essential attitude of truth seeks paragraph)

 First let me address the word presuppositions, which means assumptions prior to or beforehand, God doesn’t make presuppositions because He doesn’t have to assume anything.  He is GOD, He is omniscient or He has complete, infinite, unlimited knowledge, God knows all things from the beginning to the end.  The next issue I have in this quote is that God doesn’t reason with anyone, God’s will is not up for debate or questioning as to why He wills a thing, remember the verse I quoted from Psalm above, whatever the Lord pleases He does?  Man’s will works in conjunction with what God has already pre-determined before the foundation of the world.  I also wanted to add that I have no idea what Isaiah 1:8 has to do with what they are trying to say in this paragraph.

Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;

God shows us the total depravity of all mankind – man with no hope of redemption outside of Christ Jesus and his great mercy.  Then He shows us His great love and mercy.

Genesis 8:21 The Lord smelled the soothing aroma; and the Lord said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the  intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Romans 3:10-18 (which is a quotation from Psalm 14), where we read, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They have all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used that is, in my flesh deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips; whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace have they not known; there is no fear of God before their eyes.” And the same thought is expressed later in

Romans 7:18 “For I know that in me dwelleth no good thing.”

4.In response to Ellen and the Millerites assigning certain times and dates to the return of Christ.  Many over the centuries have made predictions about Christs return, claiming special knowledge from Him and all have been found to be liars and frauds.  How can I make such an accusation?  Because God’s word gives His exact response as to when Christ will return and He hasn’t returned yet! 

Mark 13:32 But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.  (So with that being stated why even make all these predictions?)

5.“With each successive vision, Ellen White laid down another brick in a coherent, integrated theological foundation. In this April 3 vision, the relationship was cemented between the sanctuary and the seventh-day Sabbath (the “shut door” and the Sabbath).” (From Sabbath in the sanctuary vision paragraph)

 Here we see Ellen laying a foundation, the foundation of the beliefs of the SDA, adding to the gospel of Jesus Christ her 7th day Sabbath condition.  All revealed to her through visions she claimed were from God.  This shows us that the foundation of the SDA is not built upon Christ but this is a new foundation, apparently the foundation already laid by Christ for the New Testament Church, was not good enough for them.

6.I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They had not rejected the light upon it.”(Quote from Ellen White) Here again, she applied the principle of rejection: Because the world was full of people who had not been introduced to the Sabbath truth, a vast mission field was waiting to be taught and warned.” (this is from the same paragraph Sabbath in the sanctuary)

You see the focus here is not on Christ and His gospel but on Ellen’s Sabbath truth.  She called it the clear light of truth, the Sabbath truth.  A vast mission field of people that had rejected, not Jesus Christ, but the Sabbath truth.  This Sabbath truth is required according to the SDA and Ellen for salvation.

7.“The Lord has shown me in vision, that Jesus rose up, and shut the door, and entered the Holy of Holies, at the 7th month 1844.” (this is from the same paragraph as #’s 7-8)

Fist of all this is not in scripture!!  Nowhere in scripture are we told this and this is contradictory to what scripture tells us about Jesus.  If Jesus got up and shut the door and entered the Holy of Holies then where did he offer the sacrifice for sin after he ascended into heaven?  Where had he been all that time?     

Hebrews 10:11-13  Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet.( Also refer to Hebrews 12:1-3)

Ellen also points out, in the same paragraph as 7-9, that the time of trouble when Michael stands up was yet future and would take place only after Jesus had finished His work in the Most Holy Place.  Did Jesus not finish his work on the cross, and did he not apply the blood sacrifice when he ascended into heaven?  So what is she talking about here?  Just more proof that her information is not coming from the God of the bible because God will not contradict what he has already written in the bible.

8.(from the paragraph seal of God’s vision)  We see in this paragraph that there is a worldwide spreading of the Sabbath truth/sanctuary doctrine.  So am I to assume that God no longer wants us to carry out the great commission that Jesus laid out for us to do?  This is not the spreading of the gospel, this is something new that Ellen claims God told her to do, spread the Sabbath truth, sanctuary doctrine, not the gospel of Jesus Christ.

9. “Paul’s warning about “strong delusion” and “believe the lie” (2 Thess. 2:11, 12) applied to those ministers who were attacking the Sabbath and sanctuary truths.” (from open door paragraph)

These verses in Thessalonians are about those who reject Jesus Christ and His way of salvation by grace through faith.  Ellen would like to believe they are about rejecting her Sabbath and sanctuary truths.

10.“ Ellen White’s article in Present Truth, September 1849, provided another example of the brick upon brick process by which she was helping to establish the rising foundation of a coherent, integrated theology. “ (from Present truth paragraph)

Here we see Ellen White again laying bricks for the foundation of the SDA and their beliefs.  The foundation of the Lord’s church had already been laid with no need to be re- built. 

Ephesians 2:19-21 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord,

Christ has already laid the foundation and built his church. So whose church is this that Ellen White, the cornerstone of the SDA, is building a foundation for? 

One of the other points made in the same paragraph was that “Character determines ones future”, No God has already determined our future.

11.“Whenever one role-plays, seeking to respond to the same challenges and conditions that young Ellen White faced, her responsibility to clarify earlier writings made in haste becomes clear and expected. Those few deletions or changes were not made to change positions but to clarify them—so that misunderstandings could be avoided. What else would a responsible author do, even a prophet?

A true prophet of God would not have to do this because they are always 100% correct because their message is from God.  This is the biblical requirement of a true prophet, and God is never wrong or contradictory.

Isaiah 8:20, “To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.”) see also Deuteronomy 18:20 and

12.“God did not ask them to launch out before He had made them ready. Without question, Ellen White’s vision-messages and tenacity of spirit became the leading force in melding this small group into a world movement—all done within an amazingly short period of time.” (from the last paragraph)

“Each successive vision revealed additional building material in the development of an integrated, consistent theological system that eventually became the “present” and distinctive truths of Seventh-day Adventists.”  (from the summary)

This paragraph shows us that the SDA church was founded upon the visions and writings of Ellen White, she is the cornerstone of this movement, she built the foundation and claimed her visions and writings came from the Lord.  However her visions and writings don’t line up with scripture.  The Lord’s church was established on the first Pentecost after Christ ascended, so why the need for Mrs. White to start a new church with a new foundation?  Church’s today that do not adhere to the teachings of the Lord’s church, the New Testament church teachings handed down by Jesus Christ to his apostles and spread throughout the world are not considered the Lords churches.  The Lords church preaches the same gospel by grace through faith that Jesus taught his Apostles and then passed down, we are not to accept a gospel contrary to that gospel.  Any gospel other than the one handed down through the Apostles of Jesus is a false gospel as well as any gospel that adds to grace.

1 Corinthians 15:1-5 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand,  by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.

Galations 1:8-9 But even if we or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

 In closing I would like to point out that from just this case study alone we see plenty of error.  We see denial of the omniscience of God as well as the denial of God’s sovereignty.  We see that a person’s visions and writings are being used as the foundation for this church.  And most dangerous of all we see the SDA and Mrs. White adding conditions of sabbath keeping to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Is all this enough to label them a cult?  I don’t know, but it is sure enough to tell us that the SDA can’t be the Lord’s church because it doesn’t follow the teachings of the bible but the teachings of a person.  Sabbath keeping can’t save you, only salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ can produce salvation from sin and a new birth with no other conditions added.  Obedience to Christ is not a work and is not to be added as a requirement to salvation, but a response to the free gift of salvation.  Out of great  mercy and love that God bestowed upon us, wretched totally depraved sinners we respond to Him by being obedient because we love Him.


7th Day Adventist ~ True or False Religion

The past few days I have been having a discussion with a 7th Day Adventist on Facebook.  I thought I would share with you some of the links I have come across as well as have a place to file them for future reference for myself.  There is a tendency to try to sidestep and dance around, on their part, the facts that they add attending church on Saturday as a condition to salvation as well as a belief that works are part of their salvation.   I am going to include a a few podcasts here from with Bob Dewaay and Dick Kuffel where they go line by line explaining Hebrews 4 and sabbath rest to give a correct understanding of what the sabbath is to born again Christians because it is in no way shape or form intended to mean that we are required to attend church on Saturday.
