And remember that although (in Matt 23) Jesus said, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees…” seven times, it was still his custom to go to the temple on the Sabbath…

I believe that God will guide this church through – even through the rough seas.

La Sierra University Resignation Saga: Stranger-than-Fiction

Thank-you, Faith.

This battle is the Lord’s. My faith is strengthened as I view the things happening that I have been taught from my “church school” (SDA) upbringing. We are living the fulfillment of prophecy. Those who have studied it can clearly see it. I treasure what I learned as a child. And I’ll happily share it with those who will listen.

@Holly Pham:


I think you misunderstand my point. The “futiity” I speak of is in changing anyone’s mind on this board. This board is highly polarized and I have not seen anyone change their mind. In fact, most are making increasingly stronger stands for what they advocate (on both sides of the issues). And maybe that is a good thing.

As I see the historic treasures of our faith under fire, it makes me place a higher value on them. By “treasures”, I mean the positions of truth that we base our faith upon: The Sabbath, a literal creation and creation week, the soon coming of Jesus (and more). So I suppose I am “polarized” as well. Jesus’ message through his prophet John (Revelation) says of His church in our day:

Rev 3 –
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Sounds like our Creator does want us “polarized” -either hot or cold. Now is the time of final decisions. Jesus is coming soon.

So, we do need to be witnessing and sharing our faith. But I am not sure how effective is a constant presence on this media. ANd that was my point.

@Holly Pham:

I would agree that we need to state the truth. Seems I am clearly on that side.

I think there comes a point of futility as well.

No matter how the FBs are worded, there will be contention about it.

Anyone who has fully embraced this message realizes that the days to Jesus’ coming are few. Thus it behooves us to be about the work of proclaiming the unique ADVENTIST message to a world that is facing impending doom.

May I suggest the sermons of Jeremiah Davis. (can be found on Youtube)

@gene fortner: I don’t think anyone really knows what powers were being exercised on 9/11. Clearly the airliners were involved.

It was an event that changed the world in ways that top-down powers would yearn for.

No point in speculation… I think Veith probably was mistaken to do that deep dive and it seems that he has quietly backed away from it.

The thing we must focus on is to “Turn your eyes upon Jesus….” Clearly, we are in “the last days”.

@David Read: I find Veith’s “theorizing” regarding “conspiracies” to be spot on and on topic.

There is a great “conspiracy” – otherwise known as “The Great Controversy”. It is the ultimate reality of our rebellious little world today. AND it is the foundation of all of these other problems we deal with.

Evidence that God is in control. LSU could become a beacon of light shining on the truth of our world an how we came to be here. That is as it should be.

I believe we are involved in a Mount Carmel experience. As this world is hurling toward the great climactic “END”, we will see more and greater attacks against the truth by the great deceiver. The prophets of Baal will become bolder and more feverish. (Remember that the prophets of Baal on Mt Carmel were much from within the nation of Israel.)

What a day of reckoning it will be when “at such a time as we think not” that great cloud approaches this world. The signs today are loud and bold. Jesus is coming. Spread the word.
