The Blessing of Giving

Bible Studies

     Churlish souls stint their contributions to the ministry and missionary operations, and call such saving good economy; little do they dream that they are thus impoverishing themselves. Their excuse is that they must care for their own families, and they forget that to neglect the house of God is the sure way to bring ruin upon their own houses. Our God has a method in providence by which He can succeed our endeavours beyond our expectation, or can defeat our plans to our confusion and dismay; by a turn of His hand He can steer our vessel in a profitable channel, or run it aground in poverty and bankruptcy. It is the teaching of Scripture that the Lord enriches the liberal and leaves the miserly to find out that withholding tendeth to poverty. In a very wide sphere of observation, I have noticed that the most generous Christians of my acquaintance have been always the most happy, and almost invariably the most prosperous. I have seen the liberal giver rise to wealth of which he never dreamed; and I have as often seen the mean, ungenerous churl descend to poverty by the very parsimony by which he thought to rise. Men trust good stewards with larger and larger sums, and so it frequently is with the Lord; He gives by cartloads to those who give by bushels. Where wealth is not bestowed the Lord makes the little much by the contentment which the sanctified heart feels in a portion of which the tithe has been dedicated to the Lord. Selfishness looks first at home, but godliness seeks first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, yet in the long run selfishness is loss, and godliness is great gain. It needs faith to act towards our God with an open hand, but surely He deserves it of us; and all that we can do is a very poor acknowledgment of our amazing indebtedness to His goodness.

The Prayer Life of the Remnant

Bible Studies

“And He spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not faint;” Luke 18:1

Read 1 John 5:14, 15; James 5:13, 16
A Case of Healing
A case was held up before me of_____, a minister; eighty miles he was sent for, to pray for a sick sister who sent for him in compliance with the teaching of James. He went and prayed in earnest, and she prayed; she believed the minister to be a man of God, a man of faith. Physicians had given her up to die of consumption. She was healed immediately. She arose and prepared supper, a thing she had not done for ten years. Now the minister was vile, his life was corrupt, and yet here was a great work. He took the glory all to himself. 
     Then again the scene mentioned above passed before me. I saw that the woman was a true disciple of Christ; her faith was that she should be healed. I saw their prayers: One was misty, dark, fell downward; the other prayer was mixed with light or specks which looked to me like diamonds, and arose upward to Jesus and He sent it up to His Father like sweet incense, and a beam of light was immediately sent to the afflicted one and she revived and strengthened under its influence. Said the angel, God will gather every particle of true, sincere faith; like diamonds shall they be gathered up and will surely bring a return or answer; and God will separate the precious from the vile. Although He bears long with the hypocrite and sinner, yet he will be searched out. Though he may flourish with the honest a while like the green bay tree, yet the time will come when his folly will be made manifest, and he be brought to confusion.--Letter 2, 1851

Gospel MP3 Mission Work

Evangelism News

We are going on a mission trip to the Philippines next week. We're planning a special project for this mission trip. Recently Dean and Blanca conducted a "Youth Extreme" (a GYC replica) Many lives were changed. Blanca wrote us an email (see below). As a result, we decided to purchase (low-cost)MP3 players and download the Bible, sermons, stories, and good music on them for the youth. I will be conducting a youth conference when I arrive next week. As that time I will pass out 20 MP3 players to those who make a special committment and follow through. Please pray and keep an eye open right here for pictures and video. Here is Blanca's email to us:

 

"These past 2 weekends have been a real blessing for us ...we had the youth last week very busy unlearning and learning what true worship  is.  Many commitments were made...about 100 youths were present and all but 2 youths came forward to rededicate themselves to the Lord.   It was a beautiful scene...many heads bowed in humbleness and many tears.   Then in following up with their commitment, they returned this  past Sunday to do a cd, dvd, book, poster burning... I surrender all was the main song which they did not mind singing 3 times...   We offered to show them a video and about 15 of them decided they wanted to stay overnite...so we chatted with them some more and showed more vidoes...Monday morning it seemed they did not want to leave ....they were getting high on the Word!!! What a blessing it was for us!!!   They want to meet with us one Sabbath a month.... we want them to organize the program but they still want Dean to speak for the divine worship service.  Thank you for your prayers...we see how they are working here.   There is another group we will be visiting tomorrow in another island that want to meet with us and hear Dean's testimony.   So we will be going to encourage and motivate them as well.   God is so  good!!! This is our true time of joy ...   Blessings to you all!"

How to Strenghten the Willpower

Bible Studies

By Ellen G. White   

     Let us no longer gratify the enemy by complaining of the strength of our evil will; for in so doing we are feeding and encouraging our wills against God, and pleasing the evil one. Let us remember that we are children of God, pledged to cherish a holy will which cometh to us from God. "As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name; which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." When we resist the devil, he will flee from us, and we will rise above the human weakness in a way that will be a mystery even to ourselves. The judgment day is not that which will decide our eternal interests; but it is the yielding to influences that either subject our character to the moulding of Christ, or oppose our will to the will of God. The one absorbing aim of the life of Christ was to do the will of his heavenly Father. He did not become offended with God; for he lived not to please himself. The human will of Christ would not have led him to the wilderness of temptation, to fast, and to be tempted of the devil. It would not have led him to endure humiliation, scorn, reproach, suffering, and death. His human nature shrank from all these things as decidedly as ours shrinks from them. He endured the contradiction of sinners against himself. The contrast between the life and character of Christ and our life and character is painful to contemplate. What did Christ live to do? It was the will of his heavenly Father. Christ left us an example, that we should follow in his steps. Are we doing it?

Potential Effect of a Low-Fat Diet in Type 2 Diabetes

Healthful Living

By: The Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine

Diabetes treatment typically involves the use of several pharmaceutical agents. Often, one, two, or more drugs are required for blood glucose control, along with additional agents to reduce blood cholesterol and blood pressure. While drug treatments are often necessary and can be lifesaving, their use entails significant costs, as well as adverse effects. Recent studies suggest that diet changes allow individuals with diabetes to achieve benefits that are similar to those of medications and may allow reductions in medication use. In particular, low-fat vegetarian and vegan diets reduce blood glucose, blood cholesterol, and blood pressure, and help control body weight. The following brief analysis examines the potential for cost savings that may accrue from reductions in medication use that may be expected from the use of a low-fat vegan diet for type 2 diabetes. see article...
