The Self-same Day - Passover and the Counsel of Peace

Posted Jan 21, 2016 by Adrian Ebens in The Sabbath

This morning I was pondering the significance of these verses in Exodus 12

Exo 12:41  And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

Exo 12:51  And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.

Framework for the Study of Daniel and Revelation

Posted Dec 20, 2015 by Adrian Ebens in Midnight Cry (Loud Voice)

One of the many blessings of being connected to the Advent movement is the fact that its foundations were laid in the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation which flowered into the midnight cry of 1844. While some are tempted to slumber upon those prophetic foundations laid so firmly still others are feeling the tension of over 170 years of apparent delay in the coming of Christ. The prophetic foundational stones of understanding found in the works of William Miller, Josiah Litch, Uriah Smith, Stephen Haskell and Alonzo T. Jones amongst others are feeling the pressure of human history continuing towards two centuries beyond the midnight cry of 1844.

A Priest Forever

Posted Dec 12, 2015 by Adrian Ebens in Priesthood of Christ

So we see in Scripture the reality of what Ellen White and A.T. Jones both stated that the priesthood of Christ was operating from the fall of man into sin.  

The priesthood of Christ commenced as soon as man had sinned. He was made a priest after the order of Melchizedek. {Ms43b-1891 (July 4, 1891) par. 5}

That priesthood in Jerusalem, in the sanctuary in the wilderness, represented a priesthood that was already in existence after the order of Melchisedek? Thou shalt be a priest forever after the order of Melchisedek? No, No. "Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchisedek." Was not Melchisedek a priest in the days of Abraham? and is not the priesthood of Christ forever after the order of Melchisedek…Surely, Surely it is so. A.T. Jones, General Conference Bulletin 1895, Sermon 25 p 477.6,7

Take up your Cross

Posted Nov 12, 2015 by Adrian Ebens in Everlasting Gospel

Imagine being compelled by a desire to be close to every single person you know. Maybe if you had lots of money and showered people with gifts you could certainly get people’s attention. Yet would they be close to you? Would they not be further away from you because the gifts you give become a replacement for yourself and your friends would desire your gifts more than they would desire you and your company. Such was the experience of the prodigal son when his money ran out.
