The Word of God

The silent influence of a Christian character will fall upon men like a sunbeam. May God help you to do right because it is right.

 The Bible is a progressive book; the communication of intelligence grows with the opening of God’s Word to the understanding.  {1888 259.1}

The Bible presents beautiful truths that all may understand, and at the same time it deals in deep mysteries and doctrines which will require deep thought to understand. But nothing is to be misinterpreted, misapplied, or weakened as lightly inspired if inspired at all. God does nothing by halves. His Word is inspired.And God designs that men shall take the Scriptures as His inspired Word, and any man that shall venture to distinguish between the portions of God’s Word, exalting one and belittling another, and taking away from another, places himself in a dangerous position.  {1888 259.2}

Flowers of Promise

Mrs. Herbert Stevens (Hybrid Tea), 1910

God calls for men of decided purpose, of determined character, to do His work in these last days.

In God’s Word, which may be represented as a garden filled with roses and lilies and pinks, we may pluck by faith the precious promises of God, appropriate them to our own hearts, and be of good courage–yes, joyful in God–or we may keep our attention fastened on the briars and thistles and wound ourselves severely and bemoan our hard lot.

He would have every soul plucking the roses and the lilies and the pinks, hanging memory’s hall with the precious promises of God blooming all over the garden of God.
