Tested and Tried.

Christians will be tested and tried. But if they are sincerely trying to serve God, strength will be given them for every conflict. They are not to listen to the false reports that come to their ears, but are to go straight forward in the path of duty. They are to learn to think for themselves, and their actions are ever to be in accordance with the word of God. Read the rest of this entry. more!

The Great Need of the Holy Spirit.

"Just prior to His leaving His disciples for the heavenly courts, Jesus encouraged them with the promise of the Holy Spirit."
"This promised blessing, if claimed by faith, would bring all other blessings in its train, and it is to be given liberally to the people of God."
"Through the cunning devices of the enemy, the minds of God's people seem to be incapable of comprehending and appropriating the promises of God."
"The power of God awaits their demand and reception."
"He who is endowed with the Holy Spirit has great capacities of heart and intellect, with strength of will and purpose that is unconquerable."
"How little men can do in the work of saving souls, and yet how much through Christ if they are imbued with His Spirit."
"The Holy Spirit must be the living agency to convince of sin."
"The Spirit of God working in the heart, co-operates with the working of God through His human instrumentalities."--Special Testimonies.
"We should pray as earnestly for the descent of the Holy Spirit as the disciples prayed on the day of Pentecost. If they needed it at that time, we need it more today."
"Without the Spirit and power of God, it will be in vain that we labour to present the truth." Testimony No, 31, p. 153. Read the rest of this entry. more!

God and Nature.

The most difficult and humiliating lesson that man has to learn, if he is kept by the power of God, is his own inefficiency, and the sure failure of his own efforts to read nature correctly. Sin has obscured his vision, so that, of himself, man can not interpret nature without placing it above God. He is in the same position as were the Athenians who erected their altars for the worship of nature, upon which they might well inscribe, "To the unknown God." Nature is not God, and never was God. The voice of nature testifies of God, declaring his glory; but nature itself is not God. As God's created work, it but bears a testimony of his power. Read the rest of this entry. more!
