Ye Shall Receive Power

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:7, 8.

God’s way is to make the day of small things the beginning of the triumph of truth and righteousness. For this reason none need be elated by a prosperous beginning, nor cast down by apparent feebleness. God is to His people riches, fullness, and power. His purposes for His chosen people are, like the eternal hills, firm and immovable.

Remember that human might did not establish the church of God, neither can human might destroy it. From age to age the Holy Spirit is an overflowing fountain of life.... There is victory for all who strive lawfully, in perfect harmony with the law of God. They will triumph over all opposition. As they carry forward God’s work in the face of all foes, they will be given the guardianship of holy angels.

Christ has pledged Himself to help all who join His army, to cooperate with Him in fighting against visible and invisible foes. He has promised that they shall be joint heirs with Him to an immortal inheritance, that they shall reign as kings and priests before God. Those who are willing to share in this life the humiliation of the Saviour will share with Him in His glory. Those who choose to suffer affliction with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season will be given a place with Christ on His throne.

Hold fast the Word of life. The tempest of opposition will spend itself by its own fury. The clamor will die away. Carry forward the Master’s work bravely and cheerfully. The Father above, who watches over His chosen ones with the tenderest solicitude, will bless the efforts made in His name. His work will never cease until its completion amid the triumphant shout, “Grace, grace unto it.”—The Signs of the Times, November 14, 1900.

Jesus Last Love Letter: A Revival for Children, Youth, and Adults

Jesus Last Love Letter: A Revival for Children, Youth, and Adults

Children, youth, and adults all desperately need to know that Someone loves them and will never leave them in this turbulent time! However, He warned us that prior to His coming, “most people’s love will grow cold.” We see that this prophecy is being fulfilled now! Families are splintering under strain and stress, communities are polarizing, and in our preoccupation to survive these times, we often become too rushed for the One who loves us the most--God. Yet, nearly two thousand years ago, Jesus prescribed a remedy for “love grown cold” in His message to Laodicea, and it has special relevance right now! His message in Revelation 3:14-22 is His last love letter to His people of all ages before He returns. (This is a leadership tool for multi-generation revival!)

Special Prayer Appeal for the 61st General Conference Session

Special Prayer Appeal for the 61st General Conference Session

Attended by more than 2,000 delegates representing over 21 million Seventh-day Adventists worldwide, GC Sessions are normally held every five years. But the 61st session, originally scheduled in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2020, had to be postponed twice due to unfortunate circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. But this June 6-11, 2022, the 61st GC Session will take place in St. Louis, Missouri. Time is short. We must unite in proclaiming the three angels’ messages and pray for revival, reformation, repentance, and humility as we prepare for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the final loud cry before Christ’s Second Coming...
