When the testing time shall come, those who have made God’s word their rule of life will be revealed. In summer there is no noticeable difference between evergreens and other trees; but green-giantwhen the blasts of winter come, the evergreens remain unchanged, while other trees are stripped of their foliage.

So the falsehearted professor may not now be distinguished from the real Christian, but the time is just upon us when the difference will be apparent. Let opposition arise, let bigotry and intolerance again bear sway, let persecution be kindled, and the halfhearted and hypocritical will waver and yield the faith.

But the true Christian will stand firm as a rock, his faith stronger, his hope brighter, than in days of prosperity. (E.G. White, Great Controversy p 602) My friends, like the evergreen tree, this is the point we we need to be striving for in our life.

Cementing our faith in God’s word and Spirit, or the “God is able, But if not” point in one’s life. This point is where in Daniel 3, the three Hebrew boys were at in their relationship with God.

When threatened with death in a fiery furnace their response was the God we serve is able, But if not”, our faith will not falter. My friends where on this journey Christ has placed usthrown3 on can we actually look at our own lives from within and say we are prepared for a God we serve is able, But if not” moment in our life?

Consistent with this, where in Matt 24 don’t we understand or maybe we just don’t believe, where it says “Take heed that no one deceives you,” or “what you see now is only the beginning of birth pangs.”

Or, “there will be great tribulation such has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”

Or, “know, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

In addition, is there some reason for God’s elect to believe everything that is stated in the word of God is true and accurate except Matt. 24. My friends, let’s not let Satan keep us so focused on the chaos, we are never aware that we have entered the final season, of the final chapter of history.

The chapter where God says, “it is finished,”  “and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still” Rev 22:11 (KJV) My friends the process by listen-to-the-word-of-god1which we build our faith on, must be renewed daily.

And this can only happen if we study God’s word daily, while allowing Self to die and God’s Spirit to make a Complete transformation. And without this process taking place in our life, we will never know or have a reason to say He is able, But If”, because we will not know whoHe is”.

Or, why should we put any trust in who He is?” And soon we will not even know where to go find who He is”, because the god of this world and the chaos that he has allowed, only shields God’s voice. And at that point,we will only be able to “call evil good, and good evil; or recognize darkness for light, and light for darkness.” Is. 5:20 (NKJV)


My Friends, where there is no vision, the people perish…..Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
