Cape Town Report - South Africa

Posted Sep 20, 2017 by Danny Brown in Testimonies and Stories

South Africa, a country of nearly 60 million people, was our next destination. For me personally it is the country on this trip that I was most wanting to visit.  I have never been to Africa, yet Africans were crucial in my evangelization.  When I was studying my Master’s Degree in Wales it was a Baptist woman from Nigeria and an Adventist man from Zambia who were crucial in sharing with me and whose faith I admired.  I am forever thankful to them. 

Oudtshoorn Heidelberg Pretoria and Nelspruit Report

We next flew the hour flight from Cape Town to George on a small plane, where we were picked up by Cedric and his daughter Brumilda.  We then drove from the coast inland over a set of mountains to Oudtshoorn, the "ostrich capital of the world".  It is a small yet important town in South Africa and one of the centers of Afrikaans culture.  In the late 1800s there was a huge boom in the Ostrich market; ostrich feathers were as valuable as diamonds.  This brought a huge amount of wealth to this rugged town built in the little karoo, which is what the locals call the semi-arid desert region they live in.

Reading the Old Testament Through the New

Posted Mar 10, 2017 by Adrian Ebens in Character of God

From our stand point in history to seek to read the Old Testament outside of the revelation of the New Testament is seeking to approach the Father outside of Christ. This will lead to death. The New Testament gives us the clarity to look into the Old Testament even as the mercy seat gives us the protection we need when approaching the Law of God.  

Gospel in Creation - A.T. Jones Dec 7 1897

Posted Oct 20, 2017 by A.T. Jones in Everlasting Gospel

[Editor's note: This article highlights the 1888 principle of the gospel explained through the creation week. The formless void of the earth is compared to the sinner before Christ comes into his heart. The earth was created in the beginning but without the light of the gospel it is fruitless and empty. In this context the darkness represents the old life and even the old covenant and the light represents the new life or new covenant. This sequence is important to remember when we reflect on the process of salvation. 

God has given man a complete rule of life in his law. Obeyed, he shall live by it, through the merits of Christ. Transgressed, it has power to condemn. The law sends men to Christ, and Christ points them back to the law. RH Sep 27, 1881

The night and day sequences of six days reflect this process of the law bringing men to the light of the law in Christ and then Christ pointing them back to the law to reveal more of the darkness in them which in turn brings them back to Christ. This process ends in the rest of the seventh day when all is completed. 

This then reveals the parallel process of the old and new covenant towards the completed rest of the seventh day. darkness and light side by side until the work is completed.]
