Death and Resurrection

 
 
 
This is a daily devotional type of book. What I appreciate about this book is that each day builds on the day before. A new concept is introduced and then slowly the author elaborate more and more in order for us to come away from the book with a better understanding of each topic. This is just one of the books that I have been reading lately.
 
******Today I will be sharing an entry called " Death and Resurrection"******
 
After Adam and Eve fell and lost their home in heaven, they knew that future generations would point to them and say, "You're the cause of all of this pain and heartache and sorrow and death." For over nine hundred years they had to live with this! Can you imagine? Most of us can't take much more than our threescore and ten!
 
So, for nine hundred thirty years, Adam's heart continued to beat. I suppose the enemy beat him over the head unmercifully with guilt and remorse and the temptation to curse God and give up on the whole thing. (Maybe Eve did this. We never hear about her again.) Painful as it was, his life ended one day, and the obituary read: " Adam, father of mankind, dead at the age of 930."
 
Where is Adam now? What do we know about death and the resurrection? Well, according to Scripture, w hen we di we merely go to sleep. "The living know that they will die. But the dead know nothing"(Ecclesiastes 9:5). We're unconscious. There's no knowledge of the passing of time in the grave. So the years since those nine hundred and thirty long years will be only a short time for Adam. From the time he went to sleep until the time of the resurrection will seem like only a moment. I often thing of this when I'm in a cemetery. Just a moment from now (to them) and they'll wake up again! As far as Adam is concerned, he's not in the grave any longer than someone who falls asleep fifteen minutes before Jesus comes.
 
"By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." ~ Genesis 3:

What This Blog is All About

As I have added more posts to this blog, I have realized that it has made it hard to look up information about the different fundamental believes of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. So I have decided to do up a post that gives the basic list of the beliefs and links to each page that goes into greater detail. That way it is much easier to access, rather than having to keep going back to older and older posts to find things.

Today is the day that I begin a Ladies Bible Study Group at my home. Please pray that those that chose to participate will be blessed. We will be studying the book "Steps To Christ" and we will be using the Study Guide I thought I would share just in case some of you are interested in studying this awesome little book.

Are You Living Blessed?

"We read barely into the second chapter of the Scripture record before we see God selecting a day, a 24-hour period very like the other six -common, ordinary- and placing on it a part of Himself. It is now blessed, holy. It is now unlike the other six. It is unique, distinct, and carries eternal significance. His blessing changed a piece of time."




2By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2:2-3 NIV

I know that I started this blog because I wanted to share the basics of what Seventh Day Adventist believe, but today I want to share a post about something that I think is important.

I was taking my Mother in Law to a Dr appointment and on the way she was sharing with me that until she was 30 years old she had never heard that Jesus loved her. Oh I guess I need to share here that my MIL is not a Seventh Day Adventist and was not raised one either - I am not going to share the denomination that she grew up in and was in until she was about 30 year old - because I don't want to do any bashing of the church. Anyway so never had she heard that Jesus loved her until she was 30 years old. How very sad is that?

We get our true value from Jesus Christ - our Creator and our Savior! And when we fully understand how very much God loves us - that is when we can more understand our worth. All we need to do is go to a very well known Bible verse to get the answer of how much God loves us!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16
