  • God’s Purpose for His Church

    The church is God’s appointed agency for the salvation of men. It was organized for service, and its mission is to carry the gospel to the world. From the beginning it has been God’s plan that through His church shall be reflected to the world His fullness and His sufficiency. The members of the church, those whom He has called out of darkness into His marvelous light, are to show forth His glory. The church is the repository of the riches of the grace of Christ; and through the church will eventually be made manifest, even to “the principalities and powers in heavenly places,” the final and full display of the love of God. Ephesians 3:10. {AA 9.1}
  • A Broad Foundation

    The highest of all sciences is the science of soul saving. The greatest work to which human beings can aspire is the work of winning men from sin to holiness.... True education includes the whole being. It teaches the right use of one's self. It enables us to make the best use of brain, bone, and muscle, of body, mind, and heart. The faculties of the mind, as the higher powers, are to rule the kingdom of the body. The natural appetites and passions are to be brought under the control of the conscience and the spiritual affections. Christ stands at the head of humanity, and it is His purpose to lead us, in His service, into high and holy paths of purity. By the wondrous working of His grace, we are to be made complete in Him. {MH 398.4}
  • A True Knowledge of God

    Like our Saviour, we are in this world to do service for God. We are here to become like God in character, and by a life of service to reveal Him to the world. In order to be co-workers with God, in order to become like Him and to reveal His character, we must know Him aright. We must know Him as He reveals Himself. A knowledge of God is the foundation of all true education and of all true service. It is the only real safeguard against temptation. It is this alone that can make us like God in character. {MH 409.2}
  • Danger in Speculative Knowledge

    One of the greatest evils that attends the quest for knowledge, the investigations of science, is the disposition to exalt human reasoning above its true value and its proper sphere. {MH 427.1}
  • Manuscript Release Vol.8, pg.348

    “The Son of man will come in the clouds of heaven in his own glory and the glory of His Father, and of all the holy angels. There will be no lack of honor and glory. In that day the law of God is to be revealed in its majesty, and man, who has broken that law and stood in defiant rebellion against its holy precepts, will understand that that law which he has despised, discarded and trampled underfoot is God's standard of character…. The trump of God will be heard resounding through earth's remotest bounds, and the voice of Jesus will call forth the dead from their graves to immortal life… The just . . . shall come forth from all parts of the earth, from rocky caverns, from dungeons, from caves of the earth, from the waters of the deep--not one is overlooked.”
  • The Spirituality of the Law

    The Spirituality of the Law
  • The Lord came from Sinai,
    And rose from Seir unto them;
    He shined forth from Mount Paran,
    And He came from the ten thousands of holy ones:
    At His right hand was a fiery law unto them.
    Yea, He loveth the tribes;
    All their holy ones are in Thy hand:
    And they sat down at Thy feet;
    Everyone received of Thy words."
    Deuteronomy 33:2, 3, R.V., margin

    It was Christ who, amid thunder and flame, had proclaimed the law upon Mount Sinai. The glory of God, like devouring fire, rested upon its summit, and the mountain quaked at the presence of the Lord. The hosts of Israel, lying prostrate upon the earth, had listened in awe to the sacred precepts of the law. What a contrast to the scene upon the mount of the Beatitudes! Under the summer sky, with no sound to break the stillness but the song of birds, Jesus unfolded the principles of His kingdom. Yet He who spoke to the people that day in accents of love, was opening to them the principles of the law proclaimed upon Sinai. {MB 45.1}

Consider Jesus: Humanity’s Ideal


jesus-handsIn the teacher sent from God, heaven gave to men its best and greatest. He who had stood in the councils of the most high, who had dwelt in the innermost sanctuary of the eternal, was the one chosen to reveal in person to humanity the knowledge of God…Through Christ had been committed every ray of divine light that had ever reached our fallen world. It was he who had spoken through everyone that throughout the ages that declared God’s word to man…To reveal this ideal as the only true standard for attainment;…for this, Christ came to this world.” Education Pg.73

To be one’s “IDEAL” means: “To exalt such a one as an idea of perfection. The archetype {original model or type from which other things are patterned}. The criterion {a standard, rule or test}. The example, The Model, The only pattern. The quintessential {being the most typical}. Supreme.” Collins Dictionary + Thesaurus, Free Dictionary.com

  • “Jesus is presented in scripture as humanity’s ideal sacrifice for the sin of the World:

Jn.1:29 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” (see 35,36)

Heb 9:26,28 “For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself…[28] So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation

  • Jesus is to be considered because of his purpose of becoming human and his knowledge influencing sacrifice for all humanity:

John 10:10

…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 3:17

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (see Joh1:1,3,14; Isa.53:10,11; 1Pet.1:18,19; Jn. 12:32,33

  • Jesus is to be considered because he made the way possible for humanity to experience perfection through his exemplary earthly life

Heb.2:14-18 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that hath the power of death, that is, the devil;

  1. [15]And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject tobondage.[16]For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but took on him the seed of Abraham.[17]Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.[18]For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.”

1Pet.2:21-23 “For even hereunto were you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow his steps:[22]Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth

Gal.1:3,4 “Grace be unto you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord JesusChrist.[4]Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”

  • Jesus is to be considered because he is Yhwh’s (God) wisdom to all who accept shim.

1Cor.1:24,30 “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God…[30]But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification,

  • Jesus is to be considered because he is Yhwh (God) in word, Yhwh’s glory, Yhwh (God) himself:

Jn.1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God

Jn.17:5 “And now, O Father, glorify thou me within own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was

”Mic.5:2 “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, thought-out be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting.”

  • Jesus is to be considered because salvation can come through no other.

 Jn.14:6 “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”Acts.4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”Acts.13:26 “Men and brethren, children of thestock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.”

  • Jesus is to be considered because to him is given the responsibility of the judgment of humanity:

Jn.5:21-24 “For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom hewill.[22]For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: (see Jn.5:24,30; 2Cor.5:10; 1Jn.4:17

Bible Commentary Bk.7. pg.970 “We are to copy nohuman being. There is no human being wiseenough to be our criterion. We are to look to theman Christ Jesus, who is complete in theperfection of righteousness and holiness. He isthe author and finisher of our faith. He is thepattern man. His experience is the measure of theexperience that we are to gain. His character is ourmodel. Let us, then, take our minds off theperplexities and difficulties of this life, and fix themon him, that by beholding we may be changed intohis likeness.
