This devotional provides just that opportunity as it takes you step by step from His eternal past, through His earthly life and heavenly ministry, and into the eternal future that we will share with Him.
George Knight’s Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus shows the true meaning of Christ’s life, not just as a story, but as inspiration for our everyday lives. Beholding Jesus in both His earthly and heavenly roles will change us into His likeness.
What better thing can we do than to spend a year gazing upon our magnificent and gracious Lord?"

A pastor living in Communist Russia, Nickolai Panchuk struggled as a prisoner of the KGB to find his purpose. Persecuted for his Christian faith, Nickolai remained in a Siberian camp for eight years, refusing to sacrifice his faith and suffering the consequences. Harassed, beaten, and dejected, Nickolai found hope in the unlikeliest source: an old ox named Maksim.
With the help and strength of God, Nickolai and Maksim worked together to perform a weekly miracle witnessing for Christ in the most disparaging of circumstances and winning souls along the way.
The Seventh-day Ox and Other Miracle Stories From Russia describes the faithfulness of Christians during times of persecution and the animals who were used by God to help them. Against all odds, each of these witnesses placed t
We can never say we weren’t warned. In 1903, Ellen White wrote an urgent letter about the “Alpha of Apostasy” and rushed it to the mail. Twenty-five hundred miles later, it arrived just in time to head off disaster—temporarily at least.
She wrote of a dream in the night, a ship in the fog, and iceberg in the way. The vessel was damaged, but it survived the encounter because the Captain’s command was obeyed. Adventism survived her crisis, too, though at the cost of her right arm and the imposition of “the worst evil.” Yet, she assured us that the story wasn’t over.
“The omega would follow in a little while.
I trembled for our people.” Ellen G. White
For nearly a century, the idea that the Seventh-day Adventist Church would ever again be troubled and tempted by pantheism strained credulity. It seemed absurd, unbelievable, ridiculous. Nevertheless, the Lord said another test was coming.
The Bible studies inside this book are not one-size-fits-all, fill-in-the-blank lessons. These studies address thorny topics with the dual goal of provoking thought and discussion—on both sides of the issue—and connecting youth with the truths found in God’s Word. There’s no one right answer expected—rather an honest exploration of the subject at hand, with the freedom to stand for personal convictions.
You, as the parent or leader, are provided with a road map for navigating topics that range from abuse, spiritualism, and premarital sex to poverty and suffering, ecology, and forgiveness. Questions to pose, scriptures to examine, and ideas for sharing the concepts internalized are included in each lesson.
Remember, you can lead teens to the Living Water, but you can’t make them drink. You can, however, lead them.
The Three Angels' Message comprise only seven of Revelation's 404 verses--a tiny percentage of what John the revelator recorded. Yet as God's final warning to a world enamored with sin, these cryptic messages are highly significant.
What exactly is God warning the world about, though? And how is this warning relevant to you, considering what is currently happening in our world? If it's so important, why isn't this portion of Scripture as well known as the Ten Commandments or the golden rule?
Within these pages John Anderson examines individual words and phrases to decipher clues embedded in the original language, and searches the Bible for the context in which each word is used. His careful investigation uncovers the veiled meaning of these messages by comparing scripture with scripture--and reveals just how urgent God's warning is to every human on this planet today.

That’s what Jennifer began to believe. When her dad got a job transfer, she had to move away from her home, her school, and her friends. She tried to make new friends, but the kids bullied her, got her in trouble, or used her. She soon found herself turning to the wrong people and the wrong choices in order to fill her emptiness. Would she ever find a true friend? Would she ever feel loved and happy again?
Jennifer is a real person who discovered the secret to filling her empty heart—a secret you can learn as well.

Few have been given a window into the man behind the message-until now. In this book you catch a rare glimpse into the personal trials and triumphs of this modern apostle. From humble roots in the rural South at the beginning of the Great Depression to the Internet age in which his sermons are some of the most downloaded items online, C. D.: The Man Behind the Message is as riveting as a sermon from the man himself, and just like his preaching, it will lead you to recommit your life to Jesus Christ.

Throughout the book, personal anecdotes and illustrations provide a vivid and tangible portrait of a man seeking to better understand and live out the divine plan for health of body, mind, and soul. A compelling work.--John Wesley Taylor V, Ph.D Professor of education, philosophy, and research, Southern Adventist University
If 'The health should be as sacredly guarded as the character' (Child Guidance, page 342), then this volume is as valuable as any work in theology. It is the heritage of all God's children to be healthy.--Arthur Mallon, teacher, author, and evangelist
Jesus struggled with appetite in the wilderness and successfully resisted the temptations of the devil. Jesus enables you to resist temptations to overeat. Jesus can give you the same victory that he had. With Jesuss help you can reach your ideal weight.
Additionally, this book is enriched with 200 quotations on appetite and nutrition from the writings of the 19th chentury health reformer, Ellen G. White. This practical counsel seconds and makes practical application of the principles found in the Bible.
Many people are tormented by a lack of genuine Christian assurance, simply because of theological and practical misunderstandings. Woodrow W. Whidden II addresses common questions and misunderstandings as he explores the Seventh-day Adventist doctrines of grace, law, salvation, judgment, and final events. His findings reveal biblical teachings that will inspire a deep, refreshing sense of the assurance of salvation as he explores such issues as:
How can believers know with certainty that they are saved?
Does the Bible teach a cosmic, pre-Advent investigative judgment based on works?
Who will survive the latter rain, the close of probation, and the time of trouble?
What do believers do with failure, backsliding, and the fear of judgment?
Are Ellen G. White's writings a help or a stumbling block when understanding salvation?
This powerful and comprehensive book will help believers become assured and balanced Christians, able to understand and explain the biblical teachings on judgment and assurance.
In Ellen White and the Trinity, Pastor Jan Voerman faithfully addresses this topic by interpreting Ellen White's statements on the subject of the Godhead in their chronological and literary context.
Those who assume that Ellen White taught different views of Christ's nature over the years will find this book very insightful.
Writing for the scholar and non-scholar alike, Pastor Voerman confirms the consistency of Ellen White's statements on the Trinity and affirms God's guidance in equipping the Seventh-day Adventist Church for its mission of sharing the good news of His love with the world.
In July 1973, Bob Tininenko; his wife, Linda; and his brother in-law, Jim Fisher, set sail from Tacoma, Washington, on a thirty-one-foot trimaran down the West Coast to Costa Rica. The journey was expected to take a matter of weeks, but ten days into the cruise, the party encountered a freak storm off the coast of northern California. When gale-force winds and fifty-foot waves capsized their boat, the voyage became a nightmare.
For seventy-two days, the trio was lost at sea. Challenged by nature and compromised by a bitter rivalry, their courage and will to live was put to the ultimate test. Jim, the owner and skipper of the boat, was a devout fundamentalist whose recognition of God’s will in every event brought him into increasing conflict with his brother-in-law. As the two men battled to take control of a dire situation, Linda kept a secret that would lead to heartrending tragedy.
A “hair-raising” (Houston Chronicle) account of shipwreck and survival and a searing portrait of faith without reason, Lost! is an unforgettable true story from “a writer of tremendous power and achievement” (Detroit Free Press).
This second edition of Historical Dictionary of the Seventh-Day Adventists covers its history through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 600 cross-referenced entries on key people, cinema, politics and government, sports, and critics of Ellen White. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Seventh-day Adventism.
Solomon’s divine counsel to the bride of Christ often goes unheeded in these last days of Earth’s history. Pastors and church members alike dip into the wells of the world and drink from the tainted source of those strangers to truth. Pastors turn and face the sun of Babylon when they attend learn at the feet of professors at schools like George Fox University that teach eastern mysticism, spiritual formation, contemplative prayer, Ignatian spirituality, which are all components of the emerging church movement.
The prophet Isaiah had this word of caution found in chapter 8, verse 20: “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Even though the Holy Writ makes this stern warning, it seems that Seventh-day Adventist pastors are converging on centers of learning that train these wayward descendents of the seed of Abraham. Then their unsuspecting flocks, which they are to protectively shepherd, fall prey to the wolf in sheep’s clothing because they learn the same error that their shepherd gleaned at the university.
One of these pastors went so far as to put this erroneous, Jesuit-endorsed teaching in print to disperse it to a broader audience. He notes beginning on the first page of the first chapter of his book The Green Cord Dream that “the Advent movement was born in failure rather than success, error rather than truth, darkness rather than light, and sorrow rather than joy” (pages 11, 12). In this context the author does not give credence to the prophecy of the Great Disappointment on October 22, 1844, found in Revelation 10:9, 10: “I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.” When God’s prophecy is fulfilled, how is that failure?
In addition to the issue of The Green Cord Dream, author Rick Howard brings information to light in this book Meet It about The One Project movement. He answers questions like: What is it? Where did it come from? Who is responsible for its creation?
On the surface it looks promising, but when delving under the superficial outer layers, the powers of darkness are found lurking. At an October 2011 meeting of The One Project group, eleven authors were noted as being “the most helpful.” Yet, they all promote and support the emerging church, spiritual formation interests. They all endorse and advance mysticism and spiritism, and all of them are leaders and teachers of these principles that are designed to win souls to Romanism.
Rick Howard’s Meet It indeed probes the subtle nuances of this issue of the Omega apostasy where much is to be found. Herein he picks up where his first volume, The Omega Rebellion, stopped and offers details that opens the eyes and ears of the elect who do not want this deception to enter any of the parameters of their lives.
The Ten Commandments are the Christian's code of conduct that separates us from the rest of the world and serves as a barometer of our allegiance to the Creator of the universe. Ten Commandments: The Christian Code of Conduct examines the commandments of God and how they apply to the Christian life. The book also addresses one of the most misunderstood commandments--the fourth commandment and the call to observe the biblical Sabbath. Many Christians differ on their interpretation of this commandment, but through a clear study of the Bible, this book points to the truth of the Sabbath and the importance for Christians to follow all ten commandments.
As the end of the world draws near, those who will be ready for Christ's return are "those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus" (Rev. 14:12). May God's followers be found keeping all ten of His commandments!
