Hi, everyone. I don't post much but I do read here a lot and you have all encouraged me to keep Christ first and you've all reminded me that our redemption draws closer every day. So I just came back from a walk with my 7th Day Adventist friend and she was telling me all about the Sabbath and I asked her if she realized that if she feels she is under the law, that means she must keep ALL of them. As we talked, I realized that whomever brought her up to believe that she was under the law just told her something and convinced her to believe it, but she cannot even explain why she believes what she believes. So I told her that she is not under the law. In my delivery, I could tell she got kind of upset. I changed the subject.
But before I did that I realized something I already knew, but it had never hit me this way: If we were under the law, then Daniel's 70th Week couldn't even exist because there would be no pause in the law dispensation to make way for the grace dispensation. If we were to be under the law, Jesus would have never come and we would be left to save ourselves which we could never do. Jesus's blood took care of it all. So I brought that up to her and she said she didn't even believe in the rapture but in the Second Coming which scatters her views of the 70th week! I was taken aback by this because it is a true reality that there are some Christians who don't believe in what's coming yet the signs are all around us! Someone convinced her to get stuck in the first few books of the Bible and that's all she really acknowledges but she's not Jewish. My poor friend just might be in for a shock in a very short while. I'm praying the Lord will wink on her and count her worthy but I'm asking you all to pray for her too. It's so crazy how Satan has millions of Christ-loving people fooled just by that tiny little misconception about Law vs. Grace. By doing that, he has blinded millions to the fact that our days on earth as we know it are numbered and the Church Age is winding up. Please pray that she won't have any animosity toward me for speaking the truth and please pray that the Holy Spirit will show her the real meaning of what God has left in His Word. Please pray that it's His will that she understands before it's too late. We could pass on or He could come for us. Either way we must be ready!
Peace & Love
