I'm sharing this article written by Leo John Yoro because I thought it explains this Ellen White quote very well. - Joel Ridgeway “All things Christ received from God, but He took to give. So in the heavenly courts, in His ministry for all created beings: through the beloved Son, the Father’s life flows out to all; through the Son it returns, in praise and joyous service, a tide of love, to the great Source of all.” E. G. White, The Desire of Ages, p. 21 Ou...
What is the Truth?
There is so much confusion about who God is... What is the Truth?
Ever since sin seperate between God and man, the human race has desired to look beyond the vale that separates the finite from the Infinite God. From the rebellion at the tower of Babel, to the many idols made by various nations down through the centuries, man-kind has always tried to come up with an explanation of who God is.
Yet the sole proprietors of the truth about God can be traced through the line of Abraham. God revealed Himself to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; then to the Children of Israel through Moses, and then through various prophets for centuries. At last, when God’s great prophet clock said the time was right, God Himself appeared to human flesh, in the Man Jesus Christ. He is the ultimate revelation of God. After He ascended back to heaven, God continued to reveal Himself through the Holy Spirit to the Apostles of Jesus.
But during the dark ages of the Papal rule, many lost sight of the truth about God and the light took centuries to return, through the ceaseless labours of the reformers. But even today, in this age of light and technology, there seems to be so much confusion over who God is. Satan has succeeded misrepresenting God’s character across many fronts.
Considering we are now in the prophetic toenails of history, minutes to midnight, can we afford to be confused on this vital topic? We need to have a clear understanding of what we believe and then move on to what's most important.
I've been in both camps, once an anti-trinitarian, and now a believer in the Heavenly Trio. My journey is documented in this book ->
How many Gods do Seventh-day Adventists worship?
Is God one, two or three?
Is Jesus really God?
Is the Holy Spirit a person or an influence?
The goal of this site is the present evidence and resources to help your discover the truth, like I did.
Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both. Zecheriah 6:13 If the Holy Spirit is a person, why does this verse say that the counsel of peace is between “them both”, which literally means “two of them”? Doesn't this imply that the Holy Spirit is not number three? Answer: The counsel o...
Recently I came across a very clear defence of the personhood of the Holy Spirit, written by A. T. Jones. This was published in 1907 and is a great example of how the Pioneers progressed in their understanding of the Godhead. I was so impressed by it, that I am including it here for you to read. CHRISTIANITY in all that in itself it is, contemplates only a Person. It has its origin only in a Person. It comes to men only from a Person. It is given to men only by a Person. It is sustained ...
Most of us are very familiar with the story on Genesis 19 of the destruction of Sodom. But while studying this chapter again, I discovered something I hadn't seen before. The story line goes like this: 3 men come to visit Abraham: two are angels, and the other is Jesus Christ Himself. They reveal to Abraham that they are going to destroy Sodom and Abraham starts pleading with "the LORD" to save Sodom. The other two angels leave and go directly to Sodom. They stay with Lot and ev...
