People are often incredibly afraid of the concept of judgement, for this reason the investigative judgment starting in 1844 is not a particularly popular doctrine in the SDA church. In this powerful sermon, King Tshuma shows us clearly how judgement is not something to fear, but to crave. This sermon also finishes with a moving testimony about how King was forced to live through the death of his entire tribe, and how he dealt with that.
As we see ISIS causing havok on the Christian world currently, I am often asked why Islam isn’t in prophecy, it isn’t mentioned in Daniel Unsealed! Well, the simple answer is, Islam is in prophecy, just not in Daniel 2! Revelation 9 and 10 on the other hand…
This is a clear sermon by Steve Wohlberg covering the 5th trumpet in Revelation and how it relates to Islam:
For more on this topic, here is his webinar:
We often call ourselves Christians, but do we act like Christ? How do we treat people who we find have fallen into sin? How did Christ treat people who have fallen into sin? King shows us this concept through the story of Mary and the Pharisees, and shows how we often have more in common with the Pharisees than Christ.
These days it is not often that I am genuinely blown away by a sermon… I have heard various parts of this on other sermons, and certainly have heard the concept, but I haven’t ever heard it put together so clearly, and so practically.
In this sermon, “The Seven Levels of Moral decision-Making”, Tim Jennings explains the difference between the milk and the meat of the word. Also the difference between where we are as a church, and were we need to be for Christ to return.
For me this was one of the best sermons I have seen in a very long time.
I haven’t yet watched the entire series, but the first one I believe is right on the money, and shows why we have so many problems in churches. For mp3s of the sermons click here (sermons: 1 mp3, 2 mp3, 3 mp3, 4 mp3)
I remember seeing a video on ambulocetus and thought they were a fake documentary mocking the stupidity of darwinism…. but apparently people do actually believe it from the scant evidence. Well.. it gets better… even the scant evidence has been dismissed now. Interesting vid:
Should we read the bible literally? What does that actually mean? This video gives a clear explanation on what it actually means to take the bible literally.
The Eastern Question relating to Daniel 11 and how Islam fits into biblical prophecy, is one of the most controversial prophecies in Adventism… at least it is if you hold my view (currently the minority view).
I have seen people yelled at, ridiculed and even special meetings held to ensure my view was “clarified away”. So, needless to say, this isn’t a view that will make you friends. I do believe however, it holds merit, and seems to be increasingly fitting current events in the middle east. It was also the view of many of the prominent pioneers in EGWs time (this isn’t a guarantee of truth, it is simply interesting).
The two options are basically this:
Option 1: The literal reading of Daniel 11, or
Option 2: the literal reading of Daniel 11:1-40 and spiritual reading of Daniel 11:40-45. This speaker argues for the option 1, and to me it seems the more reasonable view, especially in the light of current events.
