Sealing of Truth, Righteousness by Faith


Writer's Corner

BUY IT TODAY!   A Soul Sealed at Character Perfection



by Dionne Sabbay Thompson October 8, 2008 

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption Ephesians 4:30.

As the close of the house of God's probation approaches (1Peter 4:17), heirs remain faithful and alert, reassuring their seat at the throne of God (Revelation 3:21). Today's sealing message manifests God's Divine, Infinite and Perfect Power (Romans 1:20). Eternally filled with good news, God's sealing message warrants that all chosen individuals must manifest the Character of Christ, overcoming the propensity of sin (Matthew 5:48, 1John 3:9). Sin is noncompliance with the Ten Commandments (1John 3:4). Such an allegiance to Divine truth, will be the focus for those who dare to be like the Prophet Daniel and the Three Hebrews, standing for Christ, our Faithful True Witness. The ongoing work towards Sealing requires fixed, unchangeable, absolute sanctification, which comes from Christ alone. Being justified by faith, we must continue in obedience, building the Character of God (Exodus 20). Mirroring the image of the Messiah, we must have Him formed fully in us, being found blameless and faultless (Galatians 4:19, Colossians 1:27, 1Thessalonians 5:23, Jude 1:24-25). We must emphasize to both believers and non-believers the need to evacuate Babylon, before the world's probation closure (Revelation 18:1-4, Revelation 22:11). Teaching the three angel's messages to ..."every nation kindred tongue and people" is essential (Revelation 14:6-12).

The brotherly, loving church of Philadelphia is true Adventism, a spotless Bride, awaiting the Perfect Bridegroom, Christ Jesus (Revelation 3:7-13). As we prepare for the Latter Rain (Joel 2:23, Zechariah 10:1, James 5:7), embracing the return of Christ, true sincere believers must focus on becoming harvest ripe, perfecting Christ-like characters. Harvest ripe by biblical definition entails a process of establishing ..."first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear"(Mark 4:26-29). "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord" (Acts 3:19).

The precious message of Justification by Faith presented at the General Conference in Minneapolis in 1888 set forth the beginning of the THE LOUD CRY OF THE THIRD ANGEL and the Latter Rain; the Holy Spirit's outpouring (Hosea 6:3; Joel 2:23; Zechariah 10:1; James 5:7; Romans 5:1; Review & Herald, Sept. 3rd, 1889; Nov. 22nd, 1892; Testimonies to Ministers page 91,92). Thus we understand that exactly forty-four years following Christ's entrance into the Most Holy Place (Oct 22, 1844), at the end of the 2300 year prophecy, we were sent a POWERFUL message from God. Undoubtedly, we are in the anti-typical day of atonement: Christ is our Passover Lamb (1Corinthians 5:7). Such a message, represented at a Camp Meeting in Rome, New York, is a message of God, bearing divine credentials " for its fruit is unto holiness" Review and Herald Sept 3, 1889, 1 Selected Messages 359.1). To Sanctify means to make Holy, thus God expects nothing less than our advancement in holiness, through the Righteousness of Christ (Philippians 3:9).

Event: 1888 Minneapolis General Conference

The Review and Herald (September 3,1889) described God's Justification by Faith Message, as WATER, quenching the thirst of those who eagerly sought the Messiah's provisions, highlighting the fact that "the righteousness of Christ is imputed to us, not because of any merit on our part, but as a free gift from God...". Such a blessing to know that our (Food) Manna, the Word of God, is sure, as we, God's children are promised coriander seed, honey wafers (Exodus 16:31, John 6:58, Rev 2:17). Thus, we being fed the Heavenly MANNA must develop a genuine hatred or abhorrence for sin (Review and Herald March 18, 1890).

The entire world will be taught about the precious message of Righteousness by faith: every nation, kindred, tongue and people will know of the eternal power of the Everlasting Gospel, LESSONS ON FAITH (Romans 1:16,17; Ephesians 2:8-10, Philippians 3:9-11; Revelation 14:6-7). God, in all fairness, will allow this precious message to reach all, even those who are in distant societies, not well known to mankind (Isaiah 45:21). The continents of: Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica will be exposed to this precious light, as the Messiah wishes that none were lost (John 3:16,17). God’s work will not return to Him void, as He promises that there will be a remnant, manifesting His character and fruits (Exodus 20, Isaiah 55:11; Matthew 5:48. Galatians 5:22-23; Revelation 14:1-5). Let us be found blameless and faultless, guile-free, manifesting unstained, mark-free garments for our Savior who overcame the world for all mankind (John 16:33, 1Thessalonians 5:23, Jude 1:24,25; Revelation 14:1-5). Be encouraged saints, as we advance in Sanctification, looking unto Glorification, when our Savior shall return, crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords, promising Overcomers a seat at His throne (2Peter 3:12-14, Revelation 3:21, 19:11).

We must focus on strengthening the true church of Christ, those that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus Christ, adhering to the law and the testimony. The focus on the light of Truth, a non-negotiable objective, will be kept solely by true Christians, obedient and faithful; God's peculiar people (Isaiah 8:20, Titus 2:14, 1Peter 2:9, Revelation 14:12). An uncompromising, unchangeable, immutable faith in the Messiah, our Redeemer, is thus required. God wants his chosen to daily grow in sanctification, developing in the Character of God. Finding love and reassurance in the Messiah by grace through faith, God's remnant can become firmly rooted in Truth; receptive of the Seal of God (John 15:1-7, Ephesians 2:8, Ephesians 4:30). With guile-free mouths and blemish-free garments, those chosen, successfully withstanding the trials and tribulations without the aid of an intercessor, will be rewarded as God's precious gems, 144,000 in number (Revelation 7:1-4).

Sealed by Christ, The Center of the Streams of Beneficence

By Dionne Sabbay Thompson June 28 2009

"God is the source of life and light and joy to the universe. Like rays of light from the sun, like the streams of water bursting from a living spring, blessings flow out from Him to all His creatures. And wherever the life of God is in the hearts of men, it will flow out to others in love and blessing" (Steps to Christ page 77).

The satanic rebellion that started in heaven became localized and concentrated on the planet earth. Emmanuel translates as God with us (Matthew 1:23, Desire of Ages Chapter 1). 2Corinthians 4:6 edifies that the light and knowledge of the glory of God is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ " (2Corinthians 4:6).

Hebrews 1:1,2,3 edifies that Christ is the image of God, the image of His majesty, manifesting His outshining glory, the Character of God (Exodus 20). Christ came to this sin darkened earth to reveal the light of the love of God (1John 4:8,16). By dwelling on earth with us, Jesus revealed the love of God to man and angels. Satan deceived one third of the angels who joined him in the rebellion, leaving doubt in the minds of all the angels, charging God as a deceiver and liar. However, at the cross, Jesus exposed every satanic charge as false, revealing God's perfect self-sacrificing love to humanity and angels.

Christ is the Word and Wisdom of the Godhead made audible (Deuteronomy 6:4, Psalms 33:6, 9, Proverbs 8:22-36, John 1:1-3, 14, 1Corinthians 1:30). The Wisdom, Righteousness and Word of God, Jesus Christ, found in Proverbs 8. God is gracious and long suffering. The perfect character of God was revealed even to Moses (Exodus 34:6). God's perfect love was made evident in the life of His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus (1John 4:9) God’s wonderful love and grace has been a mystery to some, causing it to be studied throughout endless ages. Both the redeemed and unfallen beings will witness the glory shining in the face of Jesus, the glory of self-sacrificing love (2 Corinthians 4:6). The Glory shining in the presence and face of Jesus is the glory of self-sacrificing love, the light from Calvary, the law of Heaven and life (1Corinthians 13:4-8). Love is kind, patient and forgiving; doing no ill to neighbors, fulfilling the law of Christ's perfect righteousness. 1John 4:8, 16 edifies that God is love, and His Decalogue and transcript is love (Exodus 20). 1Corinthians 13 speaks of Agape, unselfish love. Romans 13:10 edifies that God's love is harmless. God is in the business of saving souls. God gives life, seeking to preserve souls, while sin causes destruction and death. Functionally, it is sin that produces destruction and kills humanity. God’s wonderful purposeful grace is the mystery of Divine redeeming love, revealed at Calvary.

The Spirit of Beneficence involves the law of life, unveiling God's Self-sacrificing Loving nature for earth and heaven (Romans 5:5, 1John 4:8, 16, 19, Steps to Christ page 77-80, Desire of Ages page 21, Acts of the Apostles page 546-554). Christ was manifested, dwelling in the light of the glory of God. The Most High's character is revealed in His Son, Christ Jesus. Genesis to Revelations is interpreted by the life and death of Jesus Christ. Overcomers will search the scriptures, learning about eternal life (Revelation 3:21). We must understand the truth about the love of God, as He is humble, kind, loving, merciful and gracious.

Contrary to the Pharisees, we must understand the true transcript and Character of God (John 8:44, 1John 3:9). Jesus came to expose satanic deceptions, revealing the Divine goodness of Christ. Jesus came to provide salvation, while revealing the character of God, exposing the character of Satan, a murderer and liar (John 8:44, Revelation 12:9).

Christ provided a plan of eternal life for His children (John 6:47). However, those who reject eternal life will suffer the consequences of sin, death (Daniel 12:2). The Son of God spread the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth (John 1:1). The Son of God, Jesus Christ, was begotten. This term “begotten” does not refer to a beginning in time, but it does refer to internal realities concerning the mysteries of Godliness, of His relationship with His Father. The Father made things through His son (Colossians 1:16, 1Timothy 3:16).

In the beginning perfect creation, revealed God’s character, as it was the hand of the Son of God that executed the inception of the universe (Psalms 65:6, 95:5). God executes all His handiwork, through the Word, as things are spoken into existence (Deuteronomy 6:4, Psalms 33:6, 9, Proverbs 8:22-36).

Sadly, sin has marred God’s perfect creations. However, all creative things declare the glory of God’s perfect righteousness. Every tree pours forth oxygen and life without which neither humanity nor animals could live. Additionally, the sun and the entire solar system's functionability testifies of God's glory and power. Unfallen angels, ministers of mercy, find love in the light and glory of the Life-giver. Heavenly angels bring light to this dark world, finding joy in giving and sharing. Angels of mercy support the plan of redemption, in Christ Jesus, ruling the hearts of men, gently and patiently moving on human hearts, praying that humans accept Christ the Savior. We can behold God the Father in Jesus Christ the Son. Looking unto Jesus Christ, we see that God’s love is Infinite in Power, Wisdom and Love and by His Spirit, He offers eternal power to his children. All power in the form of the Holy Spirit's Love must pass from the Father, Infinite Power; through the Son, Infinite Wisdom; flowing unto the Universe (Deuteronomy 6:4, Psalms 33:6, 9, Proverbs 8:22-36, John 1:1-3, 14, Romans 1:20, 5:1-5, 1Corinthians 1:30).

Infinitely, God is constantly giving. The Godhead houses eternal love and self-sacrificing Truth evidenced as Christ, the Word of God. Humility manifested in the form of a man. Christ left His position and comfort in Heaven, unselfishly becoming a man as a means of reconciling man from sin. Such a transcript of perfect humility and love is captured in the Character of God (Exodus 20, 1 Corinthians 15:45, 1John 4:8,16). The Son of God came to this sin darkened earth to reveal the light of the glory of God, providing us with perfect unity with the Redeemer at the point of our conversion to a New Covenant Experience, Emmanuel God with us (Matthew 1:23, 1John 3:9, 1:5).

God's Divine Unchanging Love

By Dionne Sabbay Thompson June 14th 2009

The Great Controversy is a serious and deep issue involving the conflicting principles of God and Satan soon to be impacting on the Great Time of Trouble ahead (Daniel 12:1). From the beginning of the great controversy in Heaven, Satan has been opposed to the righteousness of God, which is the Most High's love in action (Philippians 3:9-11, 1Corinthians 1:30). Thus we can surmise that from the beginning of the Great war in heaven, Satan attempted to overthrow God’s law of unselfish love, a transcript of the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue (Exodus 20, 1John 4:8,16, Revelations 12). God’s law of unselfish love is expressed in the Moral law of the Ten Commandments, but it is supremely revealed in the life and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua, while here on this earth.

When we look at the life and death of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, we witness that He came to fully reveal His Father’s character. Unmistakingly, Christ’s character is a transcript of benign love (Exodus 20). Conversely, Satan’s character is one of malignant, selfish hatred (John 8:44, Revelation 12:9). The Son of God created the angels and all that was within Eden the Garden, including Lucifer (John 1:3). Purposefully, Christ was sent to the earth to reconcile fallen man; sent to expose Satan as a murderer and liar from the beginning. Although, Satan with his crafty deceptions has attempted to attribute death and killing to God, it has been Satan and his selfish, self-exalting government of sin that is responsible for murder and death. God’s government of benign love is completely flawless as it manifests the Spirit of of Beneficence” (Romans 5:5, Steps to Christ page 77 -80, Desire of Ages page 21).

Revelation 17:10 reveals a forthcoming event where the Powers of False Protestantism will conjoin with Papal Powers, reunifying Church and State, controlling the populace, enforcing transgression of the Fourth Commandment, imposing civil penalties on those refuting the false idolatrous Sabbath [Sunday] (Revelation 13:11-18). Such a satanic death degree will manifest as Enforced National Sunday Law, the Mark of the Beast (Revelations 13:11-18, Great Controversy pages 604-607). Sadly, the majority of the earth's populace will follow this Babylonian trend. The transgression of God’s law, containing His Sanctified Seventh-day Sabbath is never the solution to earth’s sin problem (Exodus 20, 1 John 3:4). Christ is the solution to our every problem, as He is the righteousness of God, providing us with a free gift of righteousness, lovingly imputed to all mankind (Philippians 3:9, 1Corinthians 1:30). Mankind must thus receive this free gift imparted, filled with Divine Righteousness, reconciling us to God. Thus being led by the Spirit, we must surrender to Him, being filled with the streams of Beneficence.

Revelation 17’s global confederacy will reveal a war between Satan and God. Factually, when Satan attacks God’s people, He is attacking Christ similar to a time in history when Satan evidenced his character plagued with murderous cruelty at Calvary. However, Victoriously, the Messiah tasted the second death for all that choose to be under the control of the Great Redeemer. In the final conflict the world will be united in warfare against the Lamb, the end time False Protestants/Christians shall make war with this Lamb fueled by Satan, the Great Dragon, and Deceiver (Revelation 12:9, 17:14). Satan uses compulsive war and weapons as evidenced in the middle ages when Christians were burnt at the stake and fed to lions (Revelation 12:17).

God’s love can not fail, thus we must allow His love to put righteousness in our hearts, causing us to surrender and obey God’s Ten Commandments. Securing our eternal life in Christ, we must understand that love suffers long and may be crucified as we saw Christ provide His everlasting love to His saints, providing a new resurrected body, as perfect love can not be defeated, and death has no power over God’s unchanging love (Galatians 2:20). Contrary to the principles of Satan, Christ’s perfect love does not use carnal weapons (1John 4:8, 16, 19). By example, Christ’s love bore sin for all humanity, without retaliation (Galatians 4:4). God’s love suffers long and is indestructible. Answering Satan’s cruelty, our Messiah responded with love, kindness and righteousness, empowered by the Godhead's “Circuit of Beneficence” (Steps to Christ page 77-80, Desire of Ages page 21). While on earth, Christ was truly tempted, yet His full submission to God the Father empowered His victory over sin, preserving Him blameless and faultless (1Thessalonians 5:23, Hebrews 4:15, Jude 1:24-25). Christ’s horrific death evidenced that God’s love and law can protect us from the threat of sin and the mystery of iniquity, even under the greatest pressure. Enduring the cruelty at Calvary, Christ remained sinless, later being resurrected, covered by the Father’s perfect undying love. Similarly, the grave will have no power over those who are sealed and clothed with the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 4:30, 1Corinthians 15:50-52, 1Thessalonians 4:16-18, Revelation 7:1-4, 14:1-5).

Fully revealing the Father’s character and government of righteousness and truth, Christ fully exposed Satan as a liar and murderer (John 8:44). Satan will utilize technology, power, cruelty and hatred to test God’s people in the end time, disguised as a Church/State union however, the Lamb shall overcome those that oppose His people (Revelation 17:14). 1John 4:16 beseeches us to know God’s love, as hatred and cruelty is not a manifestation of Christ’s character. We must choose God’s government of eternal life and love, separating us from Satan, the source of death; as the wages of sin produces death (Romans 6:23, James 1:15). Here is our love made perfect, as Christ entered the world, evidencing perfect love, empowering humanity with His righteousness, teaching all to deny themselves, living lives of humility and service for others, under the control of God’s love.
