    Thank you for joining us through the Fruits of the Spirit, we know that you were blessed.

Our next Midweek Recharge experience will be just as exciting!  So join us on Wednesday evenings beginning 10/27/21 at 7pm and we will be using the book "Ten Commandments Twice Removed"  written by Danny Shelton and Shelly Quinn. 

Is our defense of the Ten Commandments triggered simply by a sentimental interest of Christian culture?

Is it possible the church stands before God as guilty as our government for discarding the Decalogue?

You will find the answers to these questions and more.  This book answers critical questions about the Ten Commandments with compelling clarity and  Bible evidence.

And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spoke unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. ~ Luke 9:11, KJV

God does the healing; we do the cooperating. Jesus had commissioned the disciples to go preach the gospel and heal the sick. When they returned and reported their success privately to Jesus, the people heard about it and came to join the celebration recorded in Luke 9. For more than 100 years, Seventh-day Adventist medical education has promoted that same teaching/healing model given to the disciples by Christ.

With the advent of “miracle drugs” and other modern medical advances, it is easy to forget the true source of healing. For example, all the antibiotics in the world will be of no benefit if the immune system designed by our Creator is not working (as when it is suppressed by poor nutrition or the use of alcohol and tobacco). The principle that “God does the healing, we do the cooperating” is important to remember and apply whenever illness occurs. 

 

 

 



         

 

 Faith claims God’s promises and brings forth fruit in obedience. Presumption also claims the promises, but uses them as Satan did, to excuse transgression. Faith would have led our first parents to trust the love of God and to obey His commands. Presumption led them to transgress His law, believing that His great love would save them from the consequences of their sin. It is not faith that claims the favor of Heaven without complying with the conditions on which mercy is to be granted. Genuine faith has its foundation in the promises and provisions of the Scriptures. 

To talk of religion in a casual way, to pray without soul-hunger and living faith, avails nothing. A nominal faith in Christ, which accepts Him merely as the Savior of the world, can never bring healing to the soul. The faith that is unto salvation is not a mere intellectual assent to the truth. He who waits for entire knowledge before he will exercise faith, cannot receive blessing from God.

It is not enough to believe about Christ; we must believe in Him. The only faith that will benefit us is that which embraces Him as a personal Savior, which appropriates His merits to ourselves. Many hold faith as an opinion. But saving faith is a transaction, by which those who receive Christ join themselves in covenant relation with God. Genuine faith is life. A living faith means an increase of vigor, a confiding trust, by which the soul becomes a conquering power.
