S.K.W.S.T.A. – Ann Atkins

The Three Angels’ Messages

First Angel

  • Announced the trial was to begin: “The hour of his judgment has come”
  • What is the topic/subject of this trial: Worship

Second Angel

  • Announced the verdict of the trial:  Babylon is guilty
  • Babylon caused the nations to turn away from worshiping God
  • Adultery is having a relationship with the wrong person (Satan instead of God)

Third Angel

  • Announcement of the sentence:
  • Worshipers of the beast will receive beast’s mark
  • Worshipers of the beast will drink of God’s wrath
  • Worshipers of the beast will be burned – eternal death

I am impressed that the worship of God or Satan has been the issue ever since Creation – and it will be seen here at the end of time with the 3 angels.  Do I put my trust wholly in God or do I “do it myself”–which is Satan’s way?

H.K.W.H.T.A. – Roger Walter

I’ve heard some really interesting comments lately about how some couldn’t invite friends to church, because they are embarassed by our worship service. Before you jump to conclusions on who might have said that, you need to know I’ve heard those comments from people who want us to be more traditional, less praise oriented as well as those on the opposite spectrum.

Having recently come from a non-traditional worship service, and pastoring a traditional worship style church before, I find the the worship service is not the crucial issue. It’s what is going on in the heart…. So, I’m personally saddened that anyone would think something so shallow as our style of worship would keep you from inviting others in.

Want it from a non-SDA perspective? Read this article: http://bit.ly/8ZSayT

This guy hits it on the head. It’s not about style, it’s about heart. It’s about what we do with our belief!

H.K.W.H.T.A.- Shawn Boonstra

“Our job is not to make secular people spiritual but to go after the secular people God is making spiritual. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:13-15 that spiritual things are spiritually discerned. God gets there first, then we are sent to connect the dots, to help them find what they’re already looking for. Desire of Ages page 349 tells us Jesus’ disciples ministered with Him, looking for interested hearers. They were not trying to interest the hearers but to find those God had already made interested. God wakes up the heart and then sends in the messenger (see Acts 2, 8, and 10) and God knew what message is needed to appeal to hearts at end of time, the Three Angels Message of Revelation 14:6-12.”

Winning people to Jesus and the Adventist movement has been Shawn’s passion ever since he surrendered his heart to Jesus almost two decades ago. He is currently in Rome, Italy, preaching to people that God has already made interested and hungry for His message. He Knows What He’s Talking About (H.K.W.H.T.A.)

“53 countries have more than 10,000 people for every Adventist. 20 countries have more than 100,000 people per Adventist. 10 countries report more than 1,000,000 people per Adventist.

Let me illustrate it another way. Let’s pretend we can climb the tallest building in South America and have all the people living in the South American Division file by one per second, single file, 24 hours a day. How often would we see a Seventh-day Adventist walk past? Every 1.9 minutes.

But if we climbed the Mount of Olives in Israel (or the mountains of Central Asia) we would have to wait 148 minutes (2.5 hours) between every Adventist. And if you came with me to Egypt and we sat on a pyramid and had the people of Egypt Continue reading

H.K.W.H.T.A.- Dale Galusha, President, Pacific Press Publishing Association

“When I meet with groups of pastors through the years I like to ask them which two Ellen White books did she say would especially help new members be grounded in their faith. Almost every time they mention The Desire of Ages and Steps to Christ. Those books are wonderful and helpful, but the two she said that would establish new believers in the truth are Patriarchs and Prophets and The Great Controversy.”* 

               – Dale Galusha, President, Pacific Press Publishing Association. Dale Galusha has been a pastor and is now president of the publishing company that prints Ellen White books. He Knows What He Is Talking About. (H.K.W.H.T.A.)

* “Many will depart from the faith and give heed to seducing spirits. Patriarchs and Prophets and The Great Controversy, are books that are especially adapted to those who have newly come to the faith, that they may be established in the truth. The dangers are pointed out that should be avoided by the churches. Those who become thoroughly acquainted with the lessons in these books will see the dangers before them, and will be able to discern the plain, straight path marked out for them. They will be kept from strange paths. They will make straight paths for their feet, lest the lame be turned out of the way.–Letter 229, 1903.” {Colporteur Ministry p. 129.3}

“God will save every human that truly wants to be saved. But as far as we’re concerned, we need to operate under the assumption that every person is lost until he hears the gospel. And we can hasten the 2nd Coming, but there comes a point beyond which we cannot delay it.”

Mark Finley has preached over 150 evangelistics series in more than 80 countries in addition to preaching satellite NET series. For many years he also preached each week as the Director/Speaker for It Is Written TV Ministries. He has truly acted on his belief that everybody needs to hear the gospel.

H.K.W.H.T.A.- John Graz, Secretary-General of the International Religious Liberty Association

“The purpose of human rights is to defend and protect individuals, groups, and properties- not religions or ideas.”

          – John Graz, Secretary-Seventh-day Adventist Pastor, Secretary-General of the International Religious Liberty Association and Secretary of the Christian World Communions. In his ministry Pastor Graz travels throughout the world working with church and government leaders to promote freedom of conscience and religious liberty. He recognizes that people and their property need to be protected rather than religions or ideas. Recognizing this allows governments to recognize human rights rather than protecting what might be false ideologies or totalitarian religious philosophies. To learn more see Liberty Magazine July-August 2009 article “Defaming Religious Freedom“. He Knows What He is Talking About. (H.K.W.H.T.A.)

H.K.W.H.T.A.- John Freedman, President, Washington Conference

capture“We don’t just want our churches to win souls, we want them to fall in love with soul winning”

                                                — John Freedman, President, Washington Conference. Rather than overemphasize baptismal numbers only, or go to the opposite extreme and ignore them most of the time, the Washington Conference leadership has developed a three year plan that emphsizes both spiritual and numerical growth. A stop sign logo with red, yellow and green lights, is used to emphasize STOP Seek Jesus, YIELD to the Holy Spirit and GO tell the world. The conference-wide baptismal goal is 1,000 people baptized per year, significantly higher than any recent year. To assist the pastors, churches and schools prepare young people for baptism many resource people are available to work alongside pastors and teachers, such as conference departmental leaders, several Bible Worker Trainers, and recently added Conference Evangelist Dan Bentzinger. A rapidly growing campmeeting offering (Over $300,000 each of the past two years) helps fund these soul winning initiatives. John Freedman and each of the Conference Departmantal Leaders team up with pastors to hold many evangelistic series each year. And John frequently says “It’s all about Jesus. He Knows What He’s Talking About (H.K.W.H.T.A.).
