LOOK FOR THE WAYMARKS

We are admonished to study our Bibles faithfully and prayerfully and to “look for the waymarks” and when my wife and I had worship this morning we read the following passage in the book Maranatha and I wanted to share it with you!!

They are to study their Bibles carefully and prayerfully, to look for the waymarks, and inquire diligently whither their path is leading,--heavenward or to perdition”. {BEcho, September 1, 1892 par. 3}

Chap. 184 - The Corruption of Truth

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. Matthew 24:23.

Before the last developments of the work of apostasy there will be a confusion of faith. There will not be clear and definite ideas concerning the mystery of God. One truth after another will be corrupted. {Mar 192.2}
After the truth has been proclaimed as a witness to all nations, every conceivable power of evil will be set in operation, and minds will be confused by many voices crying. "Lo, here is Christ; lo, He is there. This is the truth, I have the message from God, He has sent me with great light." Then there will be a removing of the landmarks, and an attempt to tear down the pillars of our faith. A more decided effort will be made to exalt the false sabbath, and to cast contempt upon God Himself by supplanting the day He has blessed and sanctified. This false sabbath is to be enforced by an oppressive law. {Mar 192.3}
In the future, deception of every kind is to arise, and we want solid ground for our feet. We want solid pillars for the building. Not one pin is to be removed from that which the Lord has established. The enemy will bring in false theories, such as the doctrine that there is no sanctuary. This is one of the points on which there will be a departing from the faith. {Mar 192.4}
There will be false dreams and false visions, which have some truth, but lead away from the original faith. The Lord has given men a rule by which to detect them: "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20). {Mar 192.5}
As we near the end of time, falsehood will be so mingled with truth, that only those who have the guidance of the Holy Spirit will be able to distinguish truth from error. We need to make every effort to keep the way of the Lord. We must in no case turn from His guidance to put our trust in man. The Lord's angels are appointed to keep strict watch over those who put their faith in the Lord, and these angels are to be our special help in every time of need. Every day we are to come to the Lord with full assurance of faith, and to look to Him for wisdom. . . . Those who are guided by the Word of the Lord will discern with certainty between falsehood and truth, between sin and righteousness. {Mar 192.6} (All Emphasis Supplied)

 

Those of us who were on www.maranathamedia.com and on “Broadcast Events” last night at 7:30pm in the USA and this morning 9:30am in Australia, heard the truth of God and His Son from brother Gary Hullquist and it can be heard and watched under “latest articles” “Healing of the Blind Man”.

 

Watch, learn and rejoice!
