Is It Essential or Nonessential Dennis Priebe We have experienced much discussion and debate on the subject of the humanity of Christ. Too much, in the minds of many. "Enough of the arguing," they say. It is time to concentrate on the essential thing--revealing a Christlike spirit to people around us. In August of 1989 the Biblical Research Institute of the General Conference issued "An Appeal for Church Unity." Many of us would like to follow this counsel. It is somewhat ironic that when some protested the acceptance of these new ideas within Adventism, and began using the same methods of communication (sermons, books, articles, tapes) as the proponents of the new views, the stigma of divisiveness and agitation was placed on the protesters rather than the innovators. Irony aside, the question before us is simple. It is my opinion, carefully considered, that the subject of Christ's humanity is indeed essential to the mission of the remnant church. Did Christ Meet Satan's Challenge? Can Man Obey God’s Law Perfectly?
AFCOE - Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism The Human Nature of Christ -- Revisited Dennis Priebe There are some subjects that people just don't like to talk about. Even when they are appropriate for discussion, they are carefully avoided. Often we are told that these subjects are not important to understand, that they really don't make any difference. During the last twenty-five years the human nature of Christ has been one of these subjects. How many speakers are willing to speak publicly about it? Old Issues Ongoing "While there is a profound fatigue within the Adventist soul when it comes to such discussions and the tensions and divisions they tend to bring, there is also a compelling significance to aspects of the dialogue. "First, there is Roy Naden's doctrinal study, 'The Nature of Christ: Four Measures of a Mystery.' "Given these articles, we felt it would be both helpful and interesting to republish an insert...that Ministry first presented 33 years ago in its October 1970 issue. Four Basic Issues "Was Christ like Adam before the Fall or after the Fall?

Adventist Defense League The Prophecy Code - About The Speaker Many of the numbers in the Bible have deeper prophetic or spiritual significance. Both in the Old and New Testaments, numbers reveal hidden concepts and meanings that commonly escape the casual reader. And throughout history, men with great minds, like Augustine, Isaac Newton, and Leonardo Di Vinci, showed more than just a passing curiosity regarding the importance of biblical numbers. Once more, Jesus said, “The very hairs of your head are numbered” (Matthew 10:30). So obviously, Bible numbers should be carefully considered. At least 12 numbers in the Bible stand out in this regard: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 40, 50, and 70. Download the Bible Numbers pdf here. 1 – represents absolute singleness and unity (Ephesians 4:4–6; John 17:21, 22.) 2 – represents the truth of God’s Word; for example, the law and prophets (John 1:45), two or three witnesses (2 Corinthians 13:1), and a sword with two edges (Hebrews 4:12). 3 – represents the Godhead / Trinity. 5 – represents teaching.
TRUTH Of The Sons Of GOD "Sons of GOD" Let us begin by quoting the two passages in Genesis 6 concerning the "Sons of GOD": "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose." "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown." So, the question that is commonly asked by many [Christians and non-Christians alike]: "Who are the "Sons of GOD" of Genesis 6:2,4?" This is a rather rash conclusion, without a much further and deeper consideration of the texts themselves, and for those who already hold that view, please allow for some time to cover the texts most thoroughly. Those who continue to promote that view despite what will be shown here, then do not fully consider the ramifications of their conclusion and what it would mean to the Gospel itself and end-time events. ..." ..." ..."
