Are You a Worthy Replacement?

The full content of this post, unlike my older posts is copied directly from the book: Prophets and Kings, Page 588-589, by Ellen Gould White.

Satan has an accurate knowledge of the sins that he has tempted God’s people to commit, and he urges his accusations against them, declaring, that by their sins they have forfeited divine protection, and claiming that he has the right to destroy them. He pronounces them just as deserving as himself of exclusion from the favor of God. “Are these,” he says, “the people who are to take my place in heaven, and the place of the angels who united with me? They profess to obey the law of God; but have they kept its precepts? Have they not been lovers of self more than lovers of God? Have they not placed their own interests above His service? Have they not loved the things of the world? Look at the sins that have marked their lives. Behold their selfishness, their malice, their hatred of one another. Will God banish me and my angels from His presence, and yet reward those who have been guilty of the same sins? Thou canst not do this, O Lord, in justice. Justice demands that sentence be pronounced against them.”

But while the followers of Christ have sinned, they have not given themselves up to be controlled by the satanic agencies. They have repented of their sins and have sought the Lord in humility and contrition, and the divine Advocate pleads in their behalf. He who has been most abused by their ingratitude, who knows their sin and also their penitence, declares: “The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan. I gave My life for these souls. They are graven upon the palms of My hands. They may have imperfections of character; they may have failed in their endeavors; but they have repented, and I have forgiven and accepted them.”

Central Processing Unit

This is what we are.

central processing unit (CPU), also referred to as a central processor unit, is the hardware within a computer that carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system. Everyone of us are CPUs, in our journey in the circuits of life we create connections and absorb instructions by the help of the Energy unknown to us, an energy from outside our computer system, an energy connected in a cable that mediates us to the source of power. But before discussing the source of that immense and unknown energy, let’s first talk about this cable that joins us into it.

This Cable is a coated with protection to avoid short circuits, this protection must be without blemish and without spot or cuts to consider it as a worthy mediator between us, RAMs, and the energy from beyond. This cable has two ends, one end that connects to us and the other fitly connects to the source of energy outside. There are other kinds of cables that are available, but none of them are worthy for us to be connected into that same energy where we’ve got our power with. Only this cable deserves the praise that every CPU gives.  In him was life.

So let’s go to the source of that power. Where does it come from? it’s getting eerie here. But wait, the source looks like as if it needed not to be feared. It might have thundering sounds sometimes that only unfallen CPUs understand, it still looks harmless. It was connected into an outlet. As we examine the outlet, it’s connected again into a source of much greater power beyond the area of a single computer and beyond a single and humble home of every computer. It powers other CPUs in the world and the source is beyond comparison. The power comes only from a single source, that source would’ve been so great that billions of CPUs are run by it. Sadly, only few CPUs recognized its presence. They are processing computer instructions not knowing where they came from. A world beyond circuits, where larger and stronger bonds of cables are connected, where more other high-end CPUs lived, where that single source of power sits. The power let us live, but for a time. There will come an hour that the source will finally leave the ignorant and unlearned CPUs in their doom. With this power lost, the CPUs are no longer functional, their probation will be closed. Those who will endure ’till the end will be united with the source of power forever. The time of probation has came to pass, but UPS(Uninterruptible power supply) are installed in the remaining CPUs while the blackout is yet to approach. Only those who will stand firm until the end will be granted to possess the UPS forever. That great day of black out will soon to come, where the cable cease in its ministration and mediation between us and the Unknown Power. Only those who are worthy are allowed to live without power, because the source of power has given them the UPS, a UPS that lasts forever where the law of the Power embeded. But those who doesn’t make a move to obtain the promise given will be forever turned off. CPUs who are processing data that are not sychronized to the data passed through the cable.

In the last days, those CPUs that are abandoned but recognized the Source of Power while it was still in a full working condition, will be granted a gift of yet another UPS. Both the living and the faithful dead will receive the same reward. Now, everyone are getting prepared to the great blackout.

Will you continue to be turned on forever? Will you start processing Data now that are worthy to process? Are you wasting your RAM for other applications that is not required? When will you change?

CPU, this is what we are.

Prototype

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”-Genesis 1:26

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”-Philippians 3:20-21

What are we originally? There are many theories that have been exposed to us from the different secular schools and universities. Most of these are, the Bigbang Theory, the Evolution Theory, and the Raelian Theory.  These Theories had been together with us from our childhood days, until we’ve reached High School, and College. All of these are just theories! Only the Biblical theory of creation is the absolute truth, which can stand any accusations that will question its validity and the accuracy of its claims.

What on earth are we here for? If we are really Christians then we would claim that our duty on earth is to share the story of the risen saviour “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”-matthew 24:14

What is to be restored? Christ’s purpose here on earth is to restore what He had lost when man fell to the deceptions of Satan in the garden of Eden. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”-John 1:1 He then promised: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”-John 14:1-4. After His crucifixion and resurrection, He bid us: “Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”-Acts 1:11 Finally, now we are waiting for His soon return “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.”-Revelation 14:12

So that was the sequence on a quick review for us all. Now, the question that still remained unanswered is: What is to be restored? It was our Character. “And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”-Revelation 19:8 Our defiled Characters had been justified by the bloodstained banner of Christ. By daily living our lives in accordance to His will, we are sanctifying ourselves by the grace of God to enable us the right to meet Him in the air, that one day we’ll be glorified and obtain a spot in heaven together with our names written in the roll–The Book of Life.

“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”-Revelation 21:3-4

This is the life that we can obtain if we’ll just remain faithful and obedient to our Master who are in Heaven. He is the prototype that we must copy so that we’ll live with Him forever in Heaven together with the righteous, pious, holy, and Honest angels and faithful humans. Our love for Christ must be kindled as early as now, before the great day of judgement. All efforts that will be done after the judgement will be useless for the time of probation had been closed. Thus, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.”-Revelation 22:11

We are planned to pattern our lives like Christ, who is the prototype of every human. Our maker, Saviour, and Redeemer that has been with us since the beginning of time. He must be the measure of perfection for He is perfect. “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”-Hebrews 4:14-16

Total restoration is needed, being partial is not an option. If it will be granted then the spirit of compromise will rise and the truth will not manifest its true power. Calling Sin in its right name is needed in this process of Restoration, and only He, our prototype, who created us can guide us on how to become like Him again.

“Redemption without Restoration is not Salvation!”

All eyes to Him.

THE PROTOTYPE.

A small note for all of us. :)

He already did it at the cross, there is no need for us to hurt ourselves. I’m PLEADING to those who are planning to crucify themselves at the cross that they must stop it. hurting ourselves is not the assurance for us to be forgiven by God. but only by just a simple, wholeheartedly offered prayer to the Lord is enough for Him to answer our prayers according to His will.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. “

(matthew 7:7,8  King James Version)

stay away from Satan’s art of deception

this is my personal opinion–>

Satan’s deception in the world is through the things which are VERY  attractive to our human eyes: entertainment,video games, worldly pleasures, immoral shows aired on TV, self proclaimed satisfaction by (drinking alcoholic drinks, smoking and other way of using drugs to abuse our fragile body), thinking of worldly thoughts mostly about owning money and gaining high ranked positions to gain self exaltation in the ranks of the vast majority of population.

be aware… just live in the world but don’t live the world by it’s pseudo-comfort things made by Satan. because the only perfect comfort is with God.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.  -1 JOHN 2:15-17

He’s coming soon… are we focused?

Are we living in a World today that making us believe that worldly intellect( mathematics, science, english, ETC2x.) are the key for us to become happy? maybe it’s true but we’re not Joyful about it… why don’t we Give all of our time to God and don’t waste 20 or more years for in (earthly focused) school—that’s real Joy!. are we doing that to exalt ourselves? are we just using the “mangita ssa ko’g kwarta,degree ug trabaho para mka serve ug tarong sa Ginoo” in a wrong way? remember matthew 24-34.. oh I’m sick about this.. maybe I’m wrong… but it’s from the Bible.. tsk.. I hope someone has the same realization as mine.. hmm 🙂 we are in a hurry my friends, He’s coming soon.and we’re doing nothing(delaying our time not focused in His second coming)

Mat 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Mat 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Mat 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Mat 6:27  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? Mat 6:28  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: Mat 6:29  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Mat 6:30  Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Mat 6:31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Mat 6:32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Mat 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Mat 6:34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
