UPDATED February 18, 2024: If you want to continue qualifying in our two CHALLENGES, the rules are listed at the bottom of this Group Description area. The Third Place title in the Artist Challenge is again open to others! See if you have what it takes to gain an artistic title. Having a plan helps you achieve your memorization goals. God bless you as you seek to draw closer to God by instilling His word in your mind, changing what you choose to look at, what you do and what you think. Remember that we will be judged by our works! (See John 6:28 and 7:7; Acts 17:31; Romans 2:16 and 13:12; 1 Corinthians 6:2; Ephesians 5:11; Titus 1:16; James 2:20, 24; 1 John 3:12; and Revelation 3:2) We are still CALLING ON ALL PRAYING SDA MEMBERS to intercede for the growing faith of new SDA converts. The deceptions of the enemy are enticing individuals weak in the scriptures to lure new followers away from the true church of God, the Seventh-day Adventist Church. They are making a concerted effort to confuse and distort the Truth that we are sharing in this group. A member of our group may be disguised from his previous deceptions and using a different name, so do not be deceived. Keep your eyes open! Please pray for a new member who expressed interest in the newfound faith (SDA) of his parents a while back. But he has not been on since he was invited to a group full of scriptural errors. Please pray that his parents will not listen to the lies that are being circulated about us. Those individuals who are saying that we believe that we will be saved by works are confused. That is not what we believe at all! We believe in obedience to God, and know that obedience is required throughout the Bible. Jesus NEVER gave a commandment to change the fourth commandment about God's true Seventh-day Sabbath (see Genesis 2:2-3 and Exodus 20:8-11), into the observance of Sunday, or worship on the first day of the week. The Seventh-day Sabbath hours are from sundown Friday evening to sundown Saturday evening. God never said that any other day or time period was holy; only the Sabbath is a holy time period (24 sacred hours). And the 7th day Sabbath is God's true Lord's Day. If you are spreading the LIE about us that we think we will be saved by works, please STOP!! We have been harrassed by so many ignorant individuals who have set themselves up as saviours. There is only one Saviour and His name is Jesus Christ. He said that if we love Him, we will KEEP His commandments. He did not come to change His Father's commandments; they were embodied in the two that He mentioned in the New Testament. He kept the Sabbath while on Earth, and His disciples and apostles continued to keep His true Sabbath long after He returned to heaven. We cannot fight the Lord; He does not change! We do not want the true ROCK, Jesus Christ, to fall on us (Peter means a little stone, so we know that text does not refer to Peter as the rock). Please heed this counsel as I am interested in your salvation as well as mine. You are fighting a battle you cannot win. The devil has fooled many of you (and the entire population of Sunday keepers) into thinking that man can change God's day of worship to fit into the commandments of men! That is not possible! The commandments of men will never stand up to the test that is coming soon. It is a contest designed by Satan of who we will worship. The devil has always wanted to be worshipped, and what better way than to get mankind to accept a false sabbath (Sunday). Only God's faithful, Bible-believing, OBEDIENT children will go through to the very end. Please look at the warning in Revelation 22:18-19 and read how serious the Lord is about messing with HIS plan. Study this issue out so that you can understand the seriousness of this matter. May God open the eyes of all His ignorant, as well as disobedient children, before it is too late. MANY BELIEVE THAT THE SUNDAY LAW is just around the corner because of certain events that began to unfold in the last few years that pointed to it. And we know that the Lord's SECOND COMING will not be far behind! We must stick close to Jesus while the devil puts his own plans (to deceive as many as he can) in action. As the enemy martials his troups, Jesus is the only one Who can see us through to the end. Stay close to God, and He will save us. There are individuals pretending to be Jesus in the present Christian world. Some of them claim that Jesus altered the 10 commandments because He only mentioned two. But they missed the explanation that He also said that those two commandments embodied ALL of the Ten Commandments. The first four showed mankind what kind of response we need to give to God. The remaining six are our actions toward our fellow man. Jesus would never change His Father's commandments! People that believe and teach this are teaching a Satanic lie! The real Jesus Christ of the Bible changes NOT! He is the great I Am, Who was, and Is, and Is to come, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Almighty God Who has taken on human flesh in order to live among humans (John 1:14). Do not lose sight of Who He is and what He has promised to His OBEDIENT children. And do not copy the habits of the ancient world in turning to every false god that is produced by the minds or hands of man. Men worship these new ideas as an idol. Let us stay on course, and not turn to the right or to the left. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He is able to save us! And we must get into the habit of praying without ceasing, constantly returning back to communion with our God throughout the day. Soon we will be able to say, "Lo, this is our God. We have waited for Him, and He will save us." In the meantime, this site will continue to uphold the Truth as it is in Jesus. ASK YOUR SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN on the Message Wall. We will try to answer them as best we can, or will suggest a source that has done an in-depth study regarding the subject you are asking about. We can give you suggestions on how to memorize difficult passages that you want to learn. If you need prayer for yourself or someone else, tell us about it and we will lift them and you up in prayer. Although this is not a place to "discuss" controversial subjects (because they tend to turn into arguments or debates), we will try to answer your questions about why we believe what we do. We discourage a lot of general chatting or posting of advertisements to join other groups. They will be taken down right away! Please refrain from personal opinions that conflict with the scriptures. Anything that does not agree with the scriptures will be removed. Please do not get on here with the intention of deceiving us; you will be found out! Jesus knows our hearts and who is out to deceive us. Eventually the truth ALWAYS comes out. Please continue to read this GROUP FACTS area and follow the GUIDELINES. They have had to be put in place to keep the peace. Our goal on here is to ANSWER PEOPLE'S UNSPOKEN QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THINGS ARE GETTING SO BAD IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. And people often ask, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" It is possible that you have asked these questions yourself. We want to address these important topics with you in the following messages; you deserve reasonable answers. People react to bad events as if God was behind them. They do not question whether some other entity is behind all the pain and suffering. Another question people ask is, "WHY DOES GOD NOT DO SOMETHING ABOUT ALL OF THESE TERRIBLE THINGS?" I hope you realize that there is a fallen angel behind all of this evil. To understand why God does not always spare you or others from trouble, we must delve into this subject a little deeper. Most people blame God for all the problems they encounter in life, and do not take time to examine themselves. They do not understand the very costly plan of salvation, that cost the Father His only begotten Son's life on the cross. They base their feelings on what they see going on in the world at large. Maybe people do not want to believe that the devil exists, or that he has enough power to cause all of the trouble in the world. Many times, their only concept of Satan is as a being in red leotards, with horns on his head and a pitchfork in his hand. This view has become a big joke, especially at Halloween. So they will not be prepared for the time when Satan comes to Earth, pretending to be Jesus. He will "personate" our real Saviour, Jesus Christ! Satan was once called Lucifer, and is a fallen angel who once lived in heaven and stood at God's side. He was a beautiful being with a glorious voice. The supernatural or occultic content of movies, books, comics, music videos, social platforms, many organizations, cartoons, etc. has prepared people for false ideas of good angels and aliens. These entities are really demons in disguise, the angels who fell along with Lucifer, or Satan (see Revelation 12). Satan was one of the covering cherubs on either side of the real throne of God in heaven (the Mercy Seat that rested on the top of the Ark showed a faint likeness of the presense of God). See also Isaiah 14:12-14. One-third of the fallen angels that were cast out of heaven with Lucifer, work for him and support his mission to deceive and destroy whoever and whatever he can. John 10:10 says, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy." But the devil knows that the battle is almost over. That's why things are becoming far worse than before! God is not responsible for all the devastation going on in the world around us. Satan is behind it ALL! He has human helpers, the wicked and disobedient. He is called the "prince of the power of the air" in the Bible (Ephesians 2:2) and the "prince of the kingdom" in Daniel 10:13. He is "going up and down" and walking "to and fro" upon the Earth (as it says in Job 1:7 and 2:2). Since Adam fell in the Garden of Eden, Satan usurped his authority, and has claimed Earth as his kingdom, and the people on it as his subjects! God let him do that to show the inhabitants of the Earth what Satan's reign as a dictator would be like. God is continuing to allow him a little more space of time to do his very worst (remember Job's experience). So when the enemy comes in like "a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him." People are now seeing that Satan's rulership is very selfish and evil! He wants to kill us because Jesus is the Creator, and Satan is jealous. He hates Jesus so much, that he would destroy all of mankind with his tyranny if God allowed him to do that. But God will not do that; He will put an end to the Devil's mischief very soon, before all of mankind is destroyed. Do not give in to the devil's tactics to get you to blame God for all the WOES in the earth, and for what may be going on in your life. THE LORD "CHASTISES THOSE WHOM HE LOVES," and "exercises" us daily to help us grow in Christ. God is not a "respector" of persons, and allows the "rain to fall upon the just and on the unjust." He is training us up in the way "we should go," even as a father guides his children. We have to be toughened up to be able to endure the very severe troubles that are coming on all creation very soon. Do not give up before the end! Read Ephesians 6:10-18 to help prepare yourself and your family. As the Bible says, we are to choose whom we are going to serve, either God in heaven, or Baal (Satan and the things of this world). Even now there are catastrophic events going on like never before: pestilence, earthquakes, floods, fires, famines, severe weather, judgments (see Matthew 24 and Luke 21), slavery, masacres, wars, unrest, prejudice, insanity, etc and etc. And soon to come, the Earthly human inhabitants (who are not prepared), will receive the Mark of the Beast. Then the seven last plagues will be unleashed, which will include HAIL weighing over 100 pounds. We are seeing evidence now that these events will happen very soon! Jesus will come with great power and glory, which will be likened to a fiery furnace. The Earth's surface will be broken up, and Earth will be likened to a "bottomless pit." All the wicked and the disobedient will be burned to death at His second coming, and will be as dung upon the ground, but will be resurrected in Second Resurrection (of damnation, as seen in John 5:29) after 1000 years. Then their final death will take place in the LAKE OF FIRE before their judge, Jesus Christ. (People confuse this "ONE-TIME EVENT" with a supposed eternal place called HELL, where they believe people will go to for eternity, and be overseen by the Devil. That is such a terrible lie!!) Anyway, they along with Satan and his wicked helper angels will be "brought to ashes" in the Second Death (see Ezekiel 28:18; Revelation 2:11; 20:6,14; and 21:8), and will never cause grief to mankind again. Right now, God is constantly shielding us from Satan's many attacks against us and our loved ones. Now is the time to get right with God. He will soon say, Enough is enough! Then He will move the events now taking place on Earth toward its closing scenes of history. Then we will go home to our temporary home in heaven (the "real" New Jerusalem is being prepared as a bride right now in Heaven, and will return with us to Earth after the 1000 years), and then will begin a new chapter of history. THE DEVIL HAS BEEN DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN to steal our peace lately, but we can find it again by connecting continually with the LORD. He will help us to hang on for a little bit longer if we allow Him. Are you finding peace in the midst of turmoil in your lives? Stay connected to Christ by reading and studying His word. A good way to start learning more about the Bible is to do Bible studies with others. If you would like to study with me the first lesson at the following Amazing Facts website, just email me at 3RIVERSENT@GMAIL.COM. Let me know if you want to study. We can discover together the many wonderful things the Bible has to offer. I am sorry that we cannot use HTML links anymore. I will explain more below. Please copy and paste this link address in your browser to find the study. https://www.amazingfacts.org/media-library/study-guide/e/4875/t/is-there-anything-left-you-can-trust- You can also do this on your own if you choose to do so. It would be nice if you could let me know on the Message Wall or in an Email so that I can have an idea of how many people are participating. We can also discuss the topics by email. NOW BEFORE WE GO ON.. Because hackers were attempting to input harmful computer programming codes, the developer has had to remove our ability to format with HTML. For now, we only have plain text availability to write anything in our Group Description. There will be NO color, NO active links, and NO indentation. Because I can no longer indent or differentiate between topics, I will CAPITALIZE WORDS at the beginning of topics from now on. Please pray for this group because the Devil never leaves for long and likes any opportunity to disrupt our ability to share our vital messages with those who are open to the Truth in God's word. AS YOU STUDY, YOU WILL FIND THAT GOD HAS HIDDEN many of His important messages to us in His scriptures. This is not to make it sound mysterious, but to make certain info available ONLY to those who will SEARCH His word for the deeper context of the passages. We can understand the meaning behind difficult to understand passages! The key is to study for yourselves! Do not completely rely on others (your pastor, parents or someone else) for your knowledge of the Bible. What they are telling you could be completely wrong!! And Satan does not like us studying for ourselves! This is why he is making such an effort to destroy the interest of people in what the Bible has to say. Even the special Truths shared on this Message Wall are often under attack! The Bible tells us to "search the scriptures daily." Please continue to search the scriptures while there is still time! I KNOW SOME OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP remove spam when it happens, or be an ADMIN to help with the maintenance of this group. Because some people are pretending to be other people by using their picture and name, like people who call themselves SDA but are NOT really SDAs (this has been done), I do not know who is sincere, and who is lying; who I can trust, and who would completely destroy this group if they could. The devil has come to "steal, to kill and to destroy." I must be very careful with the responsibility God has given to me. It is His mission and I will not do something that may threaten His plan for this group. So I cannot make anyone else an ADMIN. Thank you for understanding. And I always contact the Bible Memory staff as soon as possible when spamming or hacking occur. Time is short and we must be watchful for the devices of Satan! Prayer support and encouragement are what is needed now more than ever. Let's all defeat the devil by appealing to God for His help. We will survive the Devil's onslaught as we stick together. WE ARE A SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST PLATFORM with Bible-based Christian material available in various collections that are great study resources for all believers. The Holy Spirit is the inspiration behind the formation of these materials, and our ongoing Companion. These collections will help all honest seekers prepare for Jesus's imminent return! Not wanting to spend our precious time participating in debates or arguments, we want to discourage anyone from trying to engage in those activities on our Message Wall. Those disputes always cause division, and their posts will not be allowed to remain on the wall for very long. Also, none of us want to give the Devil any kind of access on here that would confuse or confound the YOUNG and NEW SDA brethren that visit us. In the past, we often experienced problems from individuals weak in the scriptures. Many displayed strong OPINIONS that they were not able to support with scriptural evidence. And some felt that it does not matter what choices they make, whether right or wrong, but they think they will still go to heaven. But they cannot be further from the Truth! So, I always direct challenges against our beliefs to AMAZINGFACTS.ORG. They are a faithful organization that shares biblically based truths for our times. We all would be wise to access this information while there is still time. Both sincere SDA and non-SDA believers can come together here as friends because we want to be part of the loving family of God someday. No bickering will take place among God's people. God has truly blessed this group. Our aim is to share knowledge that God has especially blessed our denomination with. We must be individuals open to God's hidden gems of Truth. If we say we love God, then we need to learn everything about His character and His desires so that we can eventually dwell with Jesus! And this is a reminder that this app is a place to memorize scripture texts! Do not forget your original goal for setting up your profile. You did not get on here to learn how to ARGUE or DEBATE!! Satan is the Author of confusion and trouble! Do not become one of his followers by the ignorantly continuing in wrongdoing. Remember that Satan is the Accuser of the brethren when you are disagreeing with your brethren of faiths you do not understand. Prove error WITH SCRIPTURE, but never let it become an attack against another human being. YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO AMAZINGFACTS.ORG on the INTERNET to find specific links about our SDA BELIEFS (because access to HTML Links is unavailable for now). An interesting FACT is that MANY ADVENTISTS PREFER USING THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE. I mainly use KJV verses and prefer seeing those on here. Please do not post on the Message Wall paraphrases like those from the Message Bible or non-Adventist commentaries. They may have opinions that we do not agree with. Some are not true scripture interpretations! We have found corrupted passages, loosely translated texts, misinterpreted texts, or places where texts are completely left out of other versions. We will remove posts using those passages that we cannot agree with. The KJV has the closest interpretation of the original writings, and except for occasional scribal error, is harmonious throughout the Bible. Use a concordance to find the truest meaning and focus on memorizing (not arguing about) your chosen scriptures. If you want to memorize from other versions, that's your choice of course. But do not post passages from other versions that we cannot agree with. We are sorry if some members are disgruntled by this request. Maybe this is not the right place for you? You can always post your opinions and differences elsewhere. Anyone that wants or needs to contact me can email me at my email address: 3RIVERSENT@GMAIL.COM. I will read and KINDLY but SINCERELY respond to whatever you have on your minds. However, I do not read unkind and disrespectful remarks all the way through and will treat your email in the same way as defiant posts that have been placed on the Message Wall at times. Now, let's move on past this difficult subject.. THE LATTER RAIN OF THE HOLY SPIRIT is soon to be poured out upon God's people if we are prepared for His sealing process. We must ask for God's power NOW in our lives to help us overcome any sins or traits that allow iniquities to continue to influence our life. Then God's fruits of the Spirit will be able to grow and be nurtured in us. One day time will run out for us and for everyone! We are now seeing the winds of strife beginning to blow fiercely in our world, and they appear to be growing in intensity. As we witness for Jesus, pray for this site's protection, and for one another's safety. We all want to be ready for Jesus's soon appearing. Jesus does not want anyone to perish, but that everyone should come to repentance. Remain loyal to our Saviour Jesus Christ. He is our only safeguard! Soon He will come the 2nd time to take us home where we will be safe from Satan and sin forever. Praise Jesus's name! THE HOLY BIBLE and THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (updated 11-20-22) The Bible is God's love letter and road map; it helps us gather strength in the face of the storm unfolding around us. Read and compare "scripture with scripture," to avoid being led astray by every "wind of doctrine" that blows our way! Go "here a little, and there a little" and so forth as God's word directs. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Tim 3:16). "We have a more sure word of prophecy," and "Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (2 Pet 1:19-21). Putting God's word in our minds will be a safeguard for us throughout the entire journey (Matt 25:4, 7). Because we believe that God's 10 commandments are His guidelines to help us lead moral and healthy lives, we encourage everyone to learn what is right and wrong by following them. The 10 commandments are God's rules; a transcript of His character! He gave them to us to teach us how to reflect His image in us, to share His love with others, and to know what to do when tempted with sin. Without guidelines or structure, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth" (Luke 11:17). In Luke 24:27 it says, "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself." John 5:39 says "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." If we love Jesus and realize that the whole Bible is about Him, then we can say with David, "O how love I Thy law! It is my meditation all the day" (Psa 119:97). And if anyone has a problem with the Old Testament, remember that was all they had back in those days. We are fortunate to have more of the meaning explained to us by the advantage of having access to a New Testament as well. WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST or THE FIRST BEAST (updated 11-12-21) The Antichrist topic is still in the development stage. If you want to contribute to the stats, email me at 3RIVERSENT@GMAIL.COM. The biblical clues from Revelation 13: (1) Rises up out of the sea (verse 1); (2) Receives its power, seat, and authority from the dragon (verse 2); (3) Becomes a worldwide power (verses 3,7); (4) Is guilty of blasphemy (verses 1,5,6); (5) Rules for 42 prophetic months (verse5); (6) Receives a deadly wound that heals (verse 3); (7) Is a religious power that receives worship (verses 4,8); (8) Persecutes God's saints (verse 7); (9) Has the mysterious number 666 (verse 18); and (10) Is led by one supreme man (verse 18). This previous list was taken from the Amazing Facts program called Panorama of Prophesy. To continue: (11) This man thinks to change times and laws (Dan 7:25); Mark of their authority (spoken by a Catholic Bishop). Where does the Second Beast come in, and who is it? THE NUMBER 666 REFERS TO the number of a man according to Revelation 13:18 which says, "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six." Revelation 15:2 goes on to say, "And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God." THE BEGINNING OF JUDGMENT - October 22, 1844 (updated 11-16-22) Every October 22nd marks an important date for all Seventh-day Adventists. It is new info for non-SDAs. On October 22, 1844, the prophecy of Daniel 8:14 was fulfilled. "Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed" (Dan. 8:14). William Miller found that this prophecy would end on October 22, 1844. He believed, as others did, that the Sanctuary referred to the Earth, and that the Lord would come on October 22, 1844. The mistake he made was that he did not realize that there was an earthly sanctuary and a heavenly sanctuary (Hebrews 8-9), and that on that date, the heavenly sanctuary would be cleansed. [This means that judgment of God's saints began on this date, starting with the dead, then moving to the living at a certain time in history.] That expectation day was actually the spark of Adventism in the world. -- Seth (Bubble) I WOULD LIKE TO ADD SOMETHING that was just sent to me. Someone sent me a link suggesting that "EG White had a temporal lobe epilepsy," and that there is "medical proof and findings that we are literally following the words of a very sick person of the past." I found this very interesting, and heartwarming to many of us who may think that we have nothing to contribute because of our failings in life. So, I shared the following texts with them: "Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in His presence" (1 Cor 1:25-29). Just because a person has a weakness or an illness, or seems to experience one unfortunate situation after another, that does not mean that God cannot use them. Paul's eyes were affected for the rest of his life because of his vision of Christ on the way to Damascus to persecute the Christians (2 Cor 12:7-10); Jacob/Israel suffered for the rest of his life because the Angel (Jesus) had touched his thigh (Gen 32:25,30); Job was suffering under the oppression of Satan (Job 1 and Job 2:1-10); and there are many other instances where prophets and disciples were very sick, in need of care or were given difficult and painful tasks. They seemed to be stuck until Jesus came along and touched them (like the woman who was set free of her 12-year curse because she bellieved Jesus could heal her by just her touch of the hem of His garment). EG White was just another of God's willing instruments taken advantage of by Satan, but used mightily in the hands of our Saviour. Do not discount her because she was a woman, or that she called herself a Messenger. She never called herself a prophet, but she fit all the aspects of a true prophet of God. THE SEVENTH-DAY SABBATH (updated 11-16-22) PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW WHERE WE STAND as SDA believers. We are seeing signs that in the very near future a Sunday Law will be promoted before the public. We are nearing the end of the world, and this subject needs to be made clear to people concerned about how to be ready for the Lord's 2nd coming. The Sabbath was not made just for the Israelites. Surprised?! It was given at the Creation of the world to mankind (see Genesis 2:1-3), before there was any Israelite, or Gentile, or sin, for that matter. It was engraved on "stone" (always used to symbolize a lasting covenant with God) by God's own finger. He commanded Moses to put the stone tablets into the "center" of the ark under the mercy seat (see Ex 25:16, 21; 31:18; 34:1, 4, 29; 40:3; Deut 10:2 5; 1 Kings 8:9; 2 Chron 5:10). The ark was a symbol of the real Mercy Seat where God sits in heaven. THE CEREMONIAL LAWS (or mosaic, as some refer to it) were special instructions that God commanded Moses to write down. They were NOT engraved on God's 2 Ten Commandment stone tablets. They were written in a book by Moses and placed on the "side" of the ark (see Deut 31:9, 25, 26). These "rules" would help the people of God learn how to make moral life choices, keep sin from "entering" the camp, keep them healthy, and prepare them for the "final" sacrifice that was to come. The ceremonial laws were symbolically nailed to the cross, not the 10 commandments. WHEN JESUS CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED, the veil in the temple was torn in two. This symbolized that the ultimate condition of deliverance from sin had been met, and there was no more need for a lamb, or the sacrificial system (the ceremonial or mosaic law). The presence of God left the tabernacle. Jesus Christ, the true Lamb of God, had been sacrificed for man's sin. He took man's place. When we accept Christ's sacrifice in place of our death, we are redeemed by His blood and justified. The Sabbath is the central commandment (4th; see Ex 20:8-11; I use only the KJV) of the Ten Commandments. The first four refer to our duty to God; the remaining six are our duty to men. The Ten Commandments are the foundation of God's government in heaven; they are a written transcript of God's character. God tells us throughout the Bible in many places, that we are to faithfully keep His Commandments. HE ALSO TOLD US TO REMEMBER THE SABBATH. Why? Because to forget the True Sabbath is to forget the True Creator. So we ask... Who are we really worshipping when we worship on Sunday (the first day of the 7-day week), a day not blessed and sanctified (made Holy) by God at Creation (Gen 1:31-2:3), but introduced in the time of Constantine as a means to bring solidarity between the early Christians and the pagans? It did end the physical persecution of Christians in the amphitheaters of the pagans (Nero, etc), but compromise of God's values and commandments was far worse. IF THE 4TH COMMANDMENT is of secondary importance, then that means that we can murder, steal, lie, cheat (we have seen that recently), covet our neighbor's possessions, have illicit relationships, use God's name in vain, disobey our parents, etc. Can you imagine what this world would be like if we did not have the Ten Commandments as a moral guideline in people's minds? I think we are getting a taste right now of what it would be like! Satan knows his time is short, so his real character is manifesting itself more and more. We are getting the chance to see what it would be like if Satan (the fallen angel who is now prince of the air) was given full and complete charge over this world. This was never meant to happen! When Adam ate the forbidden fruit (he did the opposite of being obedient), he allowed Lucifer to usurp his place. When Satan went before God and God mentioned his servant Job, Adam was supposed to be the representative of this world when the sons of God came to present themselves before God's throne (Job 1:6 and 2:1). SATAN WANTS MANKIND TO WORSHIP HIM! What better way than to steal God's true Sabbath which God put in place at creation, and replace it with an ordinary day (Sunday, originally from worship of the sun) that is no more holy than any other weekday. The seventh-day Sabbath (which happens to fall on Saturday) is HOLY, a sacred and consecrated 24-hour time period. It is not meant to be kept like any other day. The 7-day cycle has never changed the weekly order from the beginning of Earthly time. Look it up! It has always started with "first day," "second day," "third day," and so on (see Gen 1). It will always be 7 days, 7 days, 7 days, etc. It is man who has attempted to "think to change times and laws." When men chose to combine pagan rituals and beliefs with Godly principles, they corrupted God's plan and devised their own invention (see Rev 22:18, 19). The Lord shall restore the Sabbath for mankind as a weekly get-together, for it says in His scriptures, "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD" (Isaiah 66:22-23). HOPEFULLY, EVERY PROFESSED CHRISTIAN will be led to see the Truth when Sunday enforcement comes. It already is being agitated! Under the cloak of climate change, this idea will be brought before the public as a need to bring restoration of God's favor to the world. This ongoing pressure will lead to an enforced Sunday law, first in the US, and then it will be forced upon the rest of the world. America will speak as a dragon! You can see how to respond to this kind of coercion by reading stories like that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego on the plain of Dura (see Daniel 3). The only people who will faithfully follow God's will to the end, will be those who do not bow down to the image, but keep the commandments of God (see Revelation 12:17; 14:7, 12). This is a test that everyone will have to face; whether they will be loyal and faithful to the one true God or give in to the pressure. If they give in, they will receive the Mark of the Beast. Everyone who doesn't choose to obey God will be destroyed by the plagues and Jesus's 2nd Coming in power and great glory. God's presence is as a burning fire. Sin cannot survive in His presence because He is pure and holy (Isaiah 33:14; 48:10; Ex 9:8-10). The wicked will die and eventually come up in the 2nd resurrection, attempt a war on the New Jerusalem (which has come down from heaven), receive final judgment from God, and be destroyed completely (brought to ashes. Malachi 4:1, 3) in the lake of fire (Rev 8:2-4, 8; 20:5-15; 22:14) which was only meant to be used for the devil and his angels. MAY GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT OPEN UP your mind and heart to His Truth as it is in Jesus. Satan has designed a counterfeit for every real truth of God. Please understand that first day worship is truly a counterfeit by the enemy's design. Come back to the Creator and receive His blessing! THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS (updated 4-4-22) OUR DEFEATED FOE (Satan) has but a short time. He and the 1/3 of the angels who were cast out of heaven with him are on the attack, trying to fool mankind that the disasters are the result of global warming. These fallen angels are the demons who pretend to be ghosts or the spirits of our dead loved ones. They are even pretending to be aliens from other planets. Don't be deceived! Our dead loved ones will never become angels, because as the Bible says, angels are a completely different entity than man who was designed in the image of God. Also, when men die, they are asleep in the grave, and do not come back to visit with their loved ones. Those entities that appear are demons. They must leave at the name of Jesus! And the Lord won't allow holy beings from other worlds to be contaminated with the sin of our world. So, there won't be a takeover by aliens! If it appears they are trying to make contact with us, please know that they are only demons in disguise. Do not give in to the attempts of these unclean spirits to destroy the Truth! AS WE READ GOD'S HOLY WORD, asking for the power of the Holy Spirit to interpret the scriptures (especially Daniel and Revelation), we will come to understand what force is behind all the crazy politics and authoritarian overtures of the past two years. Instead of living in a state of confusion and panic, it is best to know what to do to protect our faith. I am speaking to myself, as much as to anyone else needing to be reminded that there is much Satanic activity happening around the world. The increased occultic activity (unclean spirits) is a show to display Satan's power. People everywhere are being influenced to do wrong! Besides harassing God's children, the devil is also causing great trouble and pain among the wicked as well. Always go to the Bible to search out a similar situation that you are encountering. You will find answers to what you are searching for, if you study with all your heart. Fight the good fight of faith. THE CLOSE OF PROBATION BEFORE Jesus's 2nd Coming (updated 4-4-22) We must not be sinning still when Jesus throws down His censor, and says "It is finished." He will then leave the Most Holy Place in the Sanctuary in heaven (yes, it's for real!). Next, He will take off His priestly garments to put on His kingly garments. Then He will head to Earth to gather His children. Probation will close, and Jesus will no longer be our Intercessor or Advocate in the heavenly Sanctuary to receive our prayers and petitions of repentance. He left that duty behind Him! We don't want to be without protection from the evil one. If not sealed with the seal of God (His true Sabbath), we will receive the mark of the beast (continued Sunday keeping) and be counted among the wicked to receive their punishment. The living wicked and disobedient will be destroyed with fire by Jesus's power and presence at His 2nd coming (the first death). After being dead 1000 years, they will be resurrected in the 2nd resurrection to receive their eternal reward of death forevermore (2nd death-see Revelation 2:11; 20:6, 14; 21:8). This is where the lake of fire comes in; an eternal punishMENT, not punishing. Let us therefore repent before it's too late, that our sins will be blotted out. THE SDA HEALTH MESSAGE (updated 4-04-22) OUR CHURCH HAS BEEN GIVEN A SPECIAL health message to share with the world, and to help us all lead healthier lives and have spiritual discernment. We have been counselled to be vegetarians since disease and pestilence will often come with flesh foods (especially in these last days). We are counseled to follow the Garden of Eden diet which consisted of fruits, grains, nuts, peas, legumes, and eventually vegetables (which were introduced after sin entered the equation). The age span of men was very long because of the influence of the healthy vitamins and minerals gleaned from the plants in the Garden of Eden, and the Tree of Life. But when the families of the world no longer had access to the Tree of Life (because they were cast out of the garden), as time went on the average life span decreased to 120 years, and then to 70 years. AFTER SIN BEGAN, THE ORIGINAL PLAN of God was for man to not acquire the diseases of the wicked. But man has continued to do whatever he wanted, not caring that his body was the temple of God (it houses the Holy Spirit). So now, we have a large variety of diseases upon the Earth. As men continue to mistreat their minds and bodies, their health is continuing to deteriorate. And instead of using natural methods to heal their problems, they have adopted the remedies of man. These include many pharmaceutical pills and medicines (not fit for human consumption) that are destroying their vitality. Albeit there are a few that are really helpful (penicillin, cough syrup, baby Tylenol, etc), but most only maintain their health at a state where they cannot heal from their maladies. S0, GOD STEPPED IN AND GAVE US a health plan that actually helps us to heal! Flesh meats contribute to cancers, gout, inflammation, parasitic conditions, arthritis, and many other chronic diseases. You have heard the saying, We are what we eat. It is very true! Cheese clogs the veins and arteries and causes atherosclerosis and other problems that lead to heart attacks, deep vein thrombosis, strokes, etc. Caffeine clouds the judgment and increases stress. It is in coffee and teas. We need to be able to make right decisions as we see the day of the Lord approaching. Wine and strong drink are favorite drugs, but just as deadly as hard drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin. When men discover that the Lord can overcome their ailments, they can find relief that they have been seeking by the intake of harmful drugs. ONE OF OUR AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS came up with an acronym worth mentioning. It is called NEWSTART (read about protecting your health during our present health crisis). It stands for NUTRITION, EXERCISE, WATER, SUNSHINE, TEMPERANCE, AIR, REST, and TRUST in God. I do not have to repeat the need for good nutrition to you. After the past two years risk of illness, I am sure you are doing everything you can to keep from getting sick! And water flushes impurities out of your body as well as keeping the blood thin enough to keep it flowing smoothly through your blood vessels. It is pleasant for the inside as well as the outside of the body, especially after exercising in the warm sunshine, and racking up those serotonin levels. Sunlight and oxygen give you strength and energy, and a positive mental attitude to face another day with cheerfulness. Temperance is just common sense. Anything that you overdo can become a noose around your neck. We recommend you leave harmful substances like cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco alone. The negative consequences far outweigh anything positive you could obtain from them. Everybody needs rest to recharge your bodies. Without proper rest, you will not be able to function very well. And trust in God is a given. He created our bodies to function well when fed the right properties. We can share our blessings with others only as we trust in the Life Giver, our Heavenly Father. Learn to take care of His purchase, YOU! YOU CAN CHECK OUT MORE INFORMATION on this subject from books like Counsels on Diet and Foods and The Ministry of Healing. They are available in any of our bookstores. The AFBOOKSTORE.COM website also has a large bookstore. OTHER POINTS TO PONDER! PSALM 119 (added 5-05-22) PSALMS HAS WONDERFUL AND ENCOURAGING VERSES! When I first started this Bible memory app, there were individuals leading out in a challenge to learn all of Psalms 119. I've never forgotten that and wanted to do the same. So, I've been going through Psalms 119 slowly and learning it. While learning the verses, I realized that every verse points out some specific feature of God's royal Priesthood: His word, His name, His testimony, His ordinances, His precepts, His statutes, and His commandments (His law). They also speak of aspects of His character: His faithfulness, His righteousness, His lovingkindness, and His willingness to be surety for us. We must then ask ourselves some vital questions... If the commandments of God were nailed to the cross and we no longer have to observe them (as some faiths teach), then why was it of so much importance for God (1) to place reminders of His character in the LONGEST chapter in the Bible, and (2) to point out His faithful followers in the Old Testament in Hebrews 11 (putting His laws in our minds and writing them in our hearts)? And (3) why would God inspire the writer of Hebrews to reference so much of His work in His sanctuary in Heaven, and (4) refer to their importance in such places as Hebrews 8:10? God's word is truly amazing with its hidden gems of Truth! SPECIAL INVITATION TO SDAs (updated 11-16-22) I would like to stimulate the leaders of inactive Adventist groups to action by offering to share our collections with their groups. It will give them a better witness and stimulate interest in their groups. And we all want to understand what is actually going on with all the disasters and cataclysmic events happening right now. People need answers! I'm glad to share what I know. If my info doesn't give you an answer for your questions, check out the AMAZING FACTS MEDIA LIBRARY. They can help you distinguish between real Biblical facts and MANY myths that have crept into the Christian church over the years. They also have a call-in QUESTION AND ANSWER RADIO SHOW on Sunday night, BIBLE ANSWERS LIVE, on which you can present your questions. The links I had inserted here are no longer available, but you can find many resources by going to the AMAZING FACTS website. I hope you will avail yourselves of these valuable topics and gain a knowledge of what is to come, so that you may help yourself and others get ready for the very imminent return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! TRADITIONS and PAGAN CUSTOMS (04-10-23) SADLY, EASTER COMES FROM a very pagan background. I looked up the word EASTER to see if it was in the Bible, and it was. Acts 12:4 reads, "And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people." I thought that was odd considering the pagan background of the word. But then I realized that men have tampered with the Word of God to put their own interpretation on things. Also, Easter has come to mean different things to different people. I remember that God said repeatedly not to worship any other gods! So when people just accept these changes to the Bible versions that have happened over the years, and do not do their own research, they may fall for any falsehood and be actively worshipping a pagan God without knowing it! And this is a big problem! The word EASTER was used in the place of another word, Passover (since 1611 AD). Easter actually comes from the word Ashtoreth, the pagan goddess of immorality. Other names for her are ______________; Please check out the following link for information about America; EASTER holiday. There is no reason now-a-days, with all the information available at our fingertips, why Christians should not be informed about the pagan worldly practices we participate in ignorantly. If you cannot get the link to open because you are on your phone, copy and paste the following address into your computer browser to find out the truth about this important subject! https://www.amazingfacts.org/media-library/book/e/15/t/ baptized-paganism THE SECRET RAPTURE (added 4-17-23) I HAVE ASKED FOR THE DEVELOPER to add a Special Studies or Features area here. I hope they do include that in the near future. On the computer, it would be nice to have a link that could go next to the Message Wall popup, or up near the Group Members or Delete area, or on the phone under the Message Wall link. If you contact the developer, be very polite and respectful as he does work on other things and does not just run Bible Memory. NEW MEMBERS ARE JOINING US DAILY! Welcome! I want to thank everyone who continues to support this group with your presence and prayers. You are so appreciated, and your continued interest is very encouraging to me. I try not to get discouraged, but as you can tell by past blurbs I have written, sometimes the stress affects my health temporarilly. Anyway, when more people come on here again to dispute our faith (and they will), don't be upset by them! Just help me fight the good fight of faith by standing firm on the solid Rock, Jesus Christ. The WAR has been won! Jesus gave His life on the cross, dying the second death for us, that we might have eternal life when we repent and accept Jesus as our Saviour! Do not lose faith. He is never wrong, and will help us get through to the end. Remember the story, Pilgrim's Progress? That allegory is our experience travelling to the kingdom of God. Keep on the straight and narrow path. I see that some of you who had fallen behind on your Group Verses have caught up. Good for you! It is frustrating to get behind. I know from personal experience. I try to Review 30 to 40 verses daily which helps me keep up. Some I push forward 30 days or so, which also helps me not get behind. It can be challenging when you have "acquainted" yourself with as many as I have learned. I have learned a few passages that I especially love, such as: Ephesians 6:10-18; Psalm 23; Psalm 118; Revelation 12 and 14; major parts of 1 Samuel 17 (stories about David); several random verses here and there; and so on. I have also enjoyed learning something from every book of the Bible, a challenge I began a long time ago alongside children who thrive on challenges (I have to admit I like those as well). I have found Bible Memory to be a wonderful way to learn new lessons from the word of God, and to experience the interesting diversity of the Bible. Memorizing new texts daily (I do not always manage to do this) keeps my memory sharp! If we stay in the scriptures at every opportunity, we will learn how to let Jesus' light shine through us so that we can better share His love with others. I WAS HESITANT WHEN I FIRST BEGAN TO ADD Group Verses from other Bible versions on Final Events. They messed up my personal Bible Memory page, and I did not know how to fix it. So I left off doing that for a very long time. But I have been encouraged by uploading some of the collections by JULINA from her group, Sword of the Spirit! I have figured out a way to do it so that it is unobtrusive. So, you may request that your preferred selection be uploaded in your preferred Bible version. Maybe this will give you more credit for the verses you have already learned! All I can say is, let us see what happens. ARTISTS, OUR SECOND CHALLENGE IS TO SHARE PERSONAL ART WORK that honors God. We have given out the name of BEST ARTIST IN CLASS (1st Place) to Emma, and INTERMEDIATE ARTIST (2nd Place) to Kitty Lover, for their participation in the challenge. JJ relinquished his 3rd Place title of RUNNER UP ARTIST when he found another way to bring offense to our group (he has been caught cheating, etc). He complied with the rules at the first. He had made a picture of a blue cross to qualify, but soon replaced it with a picture of a boy petting a friendly dragon on the nose. When confronted about it, he became rebellious. In our Artist Challenge, we have requested that people post GOD-HONORING pictures. His new picture did not honor GOD, and does not belong on Bible Memory (a Christian app). Therefore, the 3rd place honor will be given to someone else. I have had to make strong rules in the past to prevent our group from becoming totally corrupted with offensive things (as you can find in many Bible Memory groups developed or taken over by offensive individuals). Just as the 10 commandments were given as a written form of God's character to show the children of God how to be loyal to Him, there are other rules that parents and counselors have to make to help their children or students avoid the pitfalls that Satan throws their way. JJ's artistic skills are very good, but his new choices of art draw the mind of children away from the things of God. Often the children then begin to become stubborn and copy the habits of our arch enemy! They even abbreviate sware words and call each other rude names on these groups! PICTURES OF DRAGONS HONOR THE DEVIL! There are several references about dragons in the Bible, and they are almost always associated with death, poison, evil, filth, isolation, violence, persecution, the devil and Satan. I realize that pictures of dragons and other objectionable pictures are spread out throughout all the groups of Bible Memory. I wish the Developer could change some feature to prevent those things from being used on Bible Memory, but obviously there is only so much he can do! Everyone in this group must follow the rules and avoid becoming a bad example to others. Anyone wanting to create an inspiring piece of art work, whether painted, colored or drawn, can still place in the 3rd through 10th spots. So the 3rd place title of RUNNER UP ARTIST is now open to others. After that spot is filled again, 4th thru 10th can have the distinction of ARTIST IN THE MAKING. All of you must let us know that you participated in this challenge, and that you want a Title. This work has to be your own creation, and must be God-honoring! Please remember that God does care what we focus our minds on, and what our influence on others will be. Bible Memory is for Bible Memorization, not for displaying demonic or occultic images. Since interest has continued past the end of 2023 in our FIRST CHALLENGE to BECOME A PART OF THE LORD'S ARMY (first challenge), we will keep that as an ongoing goal. Here is how it works: those of you who are active on the Message Wall and have at least 100 Group Verses current will have the same special distinction as those who have over 1000 Group Verses current (but the 1000+ members do not have to be active on the Message Wall); you will now both have the special title of "WATCHMAN ON THE WALL." You MUST ASK ask for your badge. Those who keep at least 50 Group Verses current can have the title of "FOOT SOLDIER," and those with 25 Group Verses current can have the title of "MILITIA MAN." I will not take away those titles arbitrarily, but these two groups must show up on the Message Wall to claim your special title, and try remaining current. You cannot see the new "titles" on your phones, but you as well as ALL members can see them on FES under your name on their computers. If someone wants to achieve one of those titles and needs help, let me know on the Message Wall and I will assist you in finding verses that will help you qualify. I suggest that you look for the verses that will help you maintain or develop more fully your relationship with the LORD. Remember the Bible stories of special people that helped the Patriarchs like Moses, David, Gideon, and others to triumph over their enemies! Anyway, I want to thank you for your interest in this activity, and especially the serious memorizers for "keeping watch" like warriors watching for the enemy from a high tower. We are heading into difficult waters from here on out in this sick old world. Please keep your eyes open and let us know of any new situations developing in the world that will affect our freedom of religion. And please continue to uplift the members of this group in prayer. -- Love to you all, Marilyn
