The Harvest Message – How to GET the Character of Christ!

Most Adventists don’t even know what the Righteousness of Christ is, let alone how to get it. Many of us have heard since we were children “Righteousness by Faith”. We have studied about 1888. Many books have been written about the 1888 SDA camp-meeting fiasco. But, most have not read the many books about 1888, and many of those just don’t “get it” either.

Our God is mighty to save, the “whosoevers,” from “whatsoever,” even “to the uttermost.” through His Son Jesus Christ, the “door”, the “gate”, the “narrow way”. Narrow because IT IS ONLY THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING SON OF THE ONLY LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH! Want proof? John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by ME.”

This is the electronic age. We want answers to our questions NOW, instantly! When you type a search phrase into Google, you want it to sort through the millions of sites and come up with the most relevant answer right now, instantly. Waiting more than 3 seconds for a answer will make you go to another search engine to see if that one can do better. So, what if you typed in the search phrase “How to get the character of Christ today”? What would come up? About 54,500,000 results in 0.44 seconds! That was LESS than a SECOND!

In 1900, before Google, Ellen White told us why Christ was delaying His Second coming. But most struggle to know what it means exactly. Here’s the quotes:

(1900) “Christ is waiting with longing desire (like a bridegroom waits for His betrothed/fiancé to become his wife – like Jacob waited AND worked for Rachel to become HIS for 7 years!) for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character OF Christ (NOT SOMEONE ELSE!) shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own” (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 69).

(1900) “Had the purpose of God been carried out by His people in giving to the world the message of mercy, Christ would, ere this, have come to the earth, and the saints would have received their welcome into the city of God” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 6, p. 449).

Why has it taken 115 years since Ellen White told us that? It appears the SDA church organization as a whole is not more Holy or Perfect like Christ wants us to be; instead we are WORSE off! Then you hear the smooth teaching…the excuse for sin in the church: The wheat and tares are to grow together until the harvest. OK. So, the tares use their unholy influence to attempt to corrupt the wheat UNTIL the HARVEST. THE HARVEST, folks, THE HARVEST! is when the SEPARATION takes place. THEN the excuse is, but we are WAITING for the ANGELS to do the separating, because only the ANGELS KNOW who is a “wheat” or a “tare”.

So to answer in less than a second what “Righteousness by Faith” is AND what the Righteousness of Christ means exactly:

The “Righteousness of Christ” just exchange the WORD “Righteousness” for “Character”. So it would read “Character by Faith” or “Character of Christ”! See how easy that was? Now, since NOTHING we can do of ourselves to MAKE ourselves Christlike, we must do EVERYTHING in the POWER/Character of Christ ONLY. So that means even our own “faith” is too weak. So what can we do? Claim Christ’s FAITH, His FAITH as our very own “Faith”.  

  • Say, Dear Jesus, I claim YOUR faith as my own. I invite you into my mind to make my character “Holy” which means “Perfect” like yours today. I claim Luke 21:15 where you have promised “For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries (opponents/enemies) will be able to resist (withstand) or contradict (refute). I plead with you for your promised blessing that you “will give me words and wisdom that none of my enemies will be able to oppose or prove wrong.” Because you also have promised in James 3:2 that “Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.” Jesus. Help me to be like you today, never at fault in what I say. Give me YOUR WORDS to speak, not mine. Please make my thoughts like yours, “Holy” and “Perfect” in constant agreement with our God and Father constantly. Please fill me with yourself. You promised that YOU are the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, so I am asking you to fill my mind with your mind which is the mind of God, which is the Ten Commandments. Please write the Ten Commandments which are the thought of God made audible through you in our minds. I pray this and claim John 6:37 as your promise “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” for myself and for all those who are yours, In Jesus name Amen.

Now believe it is so BECAUSE Christ has promised it in the Bible which is the WORD OF GOD. Now, Remember what FEAST the 5 WISE VIRGINS partake of? It is the Lamb of God. The WORD of God. Christ the Son of God. The Bible verse promises ALL point to Christ. Claim them as your WORDS. They are ALIVE and FULL of POWER, which means CHARACTER.

Character IS power.” {COL 340.2} defined further in Gal 5:22-24 “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

What does “Character” consist of exactly?

“The thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character.”  Messages to Young People, p. 92.1

Merriam-Webster says “Character” is “The mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.” Also known as  our  nature, personality, temper, figure, disposition.

R. & H., Book 2, p. 530: – “Compassion beamed from his [Christ’s] countenance (a person’s face or facial expression.), and his conduct was characterized by grace, humility, truth, and love. Every member of his church militant must manifest the same qualities, if he would join the church triumphant.” {RH, November 17, 1891 par. 12}

If you want Christ’s character it means TRUTH. Christ is the TRUTH. God’s law is TRUTH.  “Stand therefore, having your loins gird about with Truth (the Verity of God’s Word is CHRIST! His MIND, His PRESENCE AND POWER=TRUTH/LAW/CHARACTER/RIGHTEOUSNESS IN US!) . . . !” Ephesians 6:14

“Christian character is not achieved in an instant, but day after day we are to add to our faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. It is in this way that we are to be made ready for the coming of Christ.” RH April 21, 1891, par. 7

So, we have come up with several important questions here that need to be answered QUICKLY if we are going to get ready for Christ to come get us QUICKLY.

Question number 1) How do we obtain that elusive character (Righteousness) of Christ that we all so desperately need? 2 Peter 1:4 says that we get the character of Christ by claiming the Bible verse promises as our very own prize! ” “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature (Godly Character=Christ’s Righteousness/character), having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (evil desires).” Claim Jude 1:24 “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.” Claim John 6:37 “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Remember, it was as hard for Christ NOT to use His absolute Divine (Godly) power (character/influence/Righteousness) as it is for us to USE it! Christ had to live exactly as we do. He could NOT use any power we ourselves do not have access to use.

“It was a difficult task for the Prince of life to carry out the plan which He had undertaken for the salvation of man, in clothing His divinity with humanity. He had received honor in the heavenly courts, and was familiar with absolute power. It was as difficult for Him to keep the level of humanity as for men to rise above the low level of their depraved natures (sinful character) and be partakers (sharers) of the divine nature (Godly character).” Ellen White,  RH April 1, 1875, par. 2

So to answer question number one quickly and simply: Find and claim specific Bible verses that fit your particular situation as your OWN WORDS. “When we learn the power of God’s Word (John 5:39), these are the questions we will ask for every situation: What is God’s Command? And What IS His Promise? Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.” Ellen White, The Desire of Ages, p. 121.2  Learn more about the power (character) of God’s Word here.

Only he who receives the Scriptures as the voice of God speaking to himself is a true learner. He trembles at the Word; for to him it is a living reality. {COL 59.2}

A knowledge of the truth depends not so much upon strength of intellect as upon pureness of purpose, the simplicity of an earnest, dependent faith. To those who in humility of heart seek for divine guidance, angels of God draw near. The Holy Spirit is given to open to them the rich treasures of the truth. {COL 59.3}

God bids us fill the mind with great thoughts, pure thoughts. He desires us to meditate upon His love and mercy, to study His wonderful work in the great plan of redemption. Then clearer and still clearer will be our perception of truth, higher, holier, our desire for purity of heart and clearness of thought. The soul dwelling in the pure atmosphere of holy thought will be transformed by communion with God through the study of Scriptures. {COL 60.1}

The object of the Christian life is fruit bearing–the reproduction of Christ’s character in the believer, that it may be reproduced in others. {COL 67.1}

Now, on to question number 2.

Question number 2) What IS the Harvest message that separates the wheat from the tares? Or you can say, the foolish virgin (a “tare”) from the wise virgin (a “wheat”). “To those who GO OUT to meet the Bridegroom is this message given.”—{ Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 420.3} Go OUT of WHAT? Go out of apostasy to meet the truth. Leviticus 20:26 tells us: “And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.” Christ says HE HAS SEVERED YOU FROM OTHER PEOPLE TO BE HIS ALONE. Divide by cutting or slicing, especially suddenly and forcibly. Put an end to (a connection or relationship); break off. Synonyms: cut off, chop off, detach, disconnect, dissever, separate, part. TRUTH SEPARATES YOU (a wheat filled with Christ) from the TARES who are filled with Satan’s character. Christ does NOT want you to partake of any error. Do NOT sit under the tree of the knowledge of GOOD AND EVIL thinking your soul is going to be SAFE from Satan. He loves to mix truth with error and confuse the issue, blur the line between truth and error, and you think, oh, this once I’ll take a tiny bit of that apple of error. It couldn’t be THAT bad. Look what that tiny bite did to Eve. Don’t make Eve’s mistake too. The 5 wise virgins (virgin means professed truth, talk truth…all TEN VIRGINS TALK TRUTH, but only the 5 wise OBEY TRUTH and put it into practice in their daily choices…by going OUT to MEET the BRIDEGROOM. CHRIST. Studying the Scriptures with an intensity before unknown, pray more and talk less.) Go out or away do not mingle with or associate with those who do not obey all Ten Commandments. This means individuals as well as churches. Christ will lead you to who you are to share Him with – share His character with others…HE WILL SHOW YOU, teach you. Just ask Him to. Claim Jer 33:3 as your very own. You will be AMAZED every single day that you claim that special Bible promise. “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

This is WHO we are to FELLOWSHIP with: 1 John 1:3 “”And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.” Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Two or three could mean, God, His Son and you! But don’t ever forget this: Any connection with infidels and unbelievers which would identify us with them is forbidden by the word. We are to come out from them and be separate. In no case are we to link ourselves with them in their plans or work. E.G. White, FE 482. Learn more here.

Bottom line, Quick answer: There are no 501c3 non-profit/tax exempt churches today that obey the Ten Commandments. You cannot associate with nor become a member with ANY 501c3 church and JOIN them in their work or plans unless you want to miss out on Heaven. Christ says to GO OUT and MEET HIM, HE IS THE BRIDEGROOM we are to go OUT and meet the Bridegroom in Matthew 25:6 and it also says this in Revelation 18:4. Must He also say “PLEASE”?

Christ does not expect you not to share truth with people. Christ wore Himself out helping people. Healing the sick etc. So are we to help others. In their necessity He allows you to draw near to them to share His character with them…but pray about who and when you do this and for the WORDS to speak with them.

  • “Many who went forth to meet the Bridegroom under the messages of the first and second angels, refused the third, the last testing message to be given to the world, and a similar position will be taken when the last call is made.” RH October 31, 1899, par. 12 The last warning message to a dying world is to come out of all 501c3 churches, ALL church denominations are also called BUNDLES, Rev 14:4 people follow Christ wherever He goes. Christ calls His Sheep to come out and JOIN Him in the wedding party procession on its way to the gospel feast…the gospel feast at His House, His body, partake of His Godly nature, the Divine Spirit, Divine Words, learn the language of Heaven by studying the King James version Bible promises, claim them as your very own promises sent by God through His Divine Son, Jesus Christ!
    • “The message presented at this time is the last message of mercy for a fallen world.  Those who have the privilege of hearing this message, and persist in refusing to heed the warning, cast away their last hope of salvation.  There will be no second probation.” Testimonies, vol 6, p 19.
    • The trumpet is to give a certain sound.  Clearly and distinctly the warning is to ring out, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen….Come out of her (church bundles, theological bundles, 501c3 denominational bundles), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.’” Review and Herald, December 9, 1902 (vol 4, p 472).
    • We know that now everything is at stake.  The third angel’s message is to be at this time regarded as of the highest importance.  It is a life and death question.” Last Day Events from the Letters and Manuscripts of E.G. White, p 76 (Letter 28, February 17, 1900).
    • THE HARVEST MESSAGE THAT SEPARATES THE WHEAT FROM THE TARES IS TO COME OUT OF ALL 501c3 CHURCHES. ALL BAPTIZED PAGANISM/HEATHENISM.

“For evils that we might have checked, we are just as responsible as if we were guilty.” Desire of Ages, p. 44.

Question number 3) Who are the ANGELS and WHEN are they coming to do the separating of the wheat from the tares?

“The ANGEL represented in prophecy as delivering this message, SYMBOLIZES A CLASS OF FAITHFUL MEN, who obedient to the promptings of God’s Spirit and the teachings of his word, proclaim this warning to the inhabitants of earth. This message WAS NOT to be committed to the religious leaders of the people.” E.. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, vol. 4, 199, 200.

An angel said, “Are all messengers? No, no, God’s messengers have A MESSAGE.” The Present Truth,  April 1, 1850, (Vol. 1, #9)

IF what we are missing in our lives IS the CHARACTER of CHRIST what ARE YOU doing to get it? Are you searching Google for it? Are you searching the Bible for it? Are you seeking the Righteousness or CHARACTER of Christ?

Christ says to us in Matthew 11:29 “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart (MIND/attitude/character/thoughts/feelings): and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

We are not one fifth part as meek and humble as we should be. We need to study carefully what these things mean,—that we areto eat the flesh of Christ, and to drink his blood. We must bring Christ into our being. The care and trouble we have, are caused, to a great degree, by our own hearts’ not being in harmony with Jesus Christ. we must take the word of God to ourselves,—and Christ is that word,—and study all his words of advice and counsel, and make them a part of our own life and character. Whatever may have been your defects, you are not to carry those defects along with you from day to day; but you are to set your feet upon the lower round of the ladder, and climb until you reach the topmost round. “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” You must hold fast to Christ. Christ is that ladder. We are to mount by the Mediator, and all the while keep hold on the Mediator, clinging to Christ, walking with Christ, living with Christ, growing in Christ, until we gain heaven. Christ is the ladder set upon the earth, the topmost round reaching the throne of God.

There are great blessings that we can realize if we will only bring ourselves into harmony with Jesus Christ. It is not that you are to trust in what you can do, but what Christ can do with your efforts; and therefore the whole glory should redound to Jesus Christ, if you would meet with success. And these lessons which appear to you so discouraging, should be regarded by you as the most precious lessons you could have, because you are made through them to see that your whole success depends upon your hold upon God; and if you pray to him in faith, you may know that he will hear your prayers, and will be by your side to help you in every circumstance.”  RH March 29, 1887, par. 8

“Climb the ladder of progress heavenward. Christ is the ladder, whose base is on the earth and whose topmost round reaches to the highest heaven. God is above the ladder, and his glory is shining on every round. You must climb the ladder by clinging to Christ, and finally reach the everlasting kingdom. I pray you in the name of Christ, put on every piece of the armor of God, and fight manfully the battles of the Lord. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” When you are met with sneers and ridicule, rejoice that your names are written in the books of heaven, that you are to be made immortal, to have an abundant entrance into the kingdom of heaven, because you are law-abiding citizens of the heavenly country. You shall see the King in his beauty, and dwell with him, and have a life that runs parallel with the life of Jehovah.” Ellen White, RH September 3, 1895, par. 10

Basically it is IMPOSSIBLE to be like Christ WITHOUT Christ living INSIDE YOU and YOU INSIDE CHRIST. How do you get Christ INSIDE of you? You must become a MUSE a HOST or a CHANNEL or a MEDIUM for CHRIST. Your BODY/MIND becomes a sacred dwelling place of God and His Son’s PRESENCE and POWER=Character/thoughts/feelings when you submit fully to Christ. YOU want to become the personification of knowledge, wisdom, the Art of being like Christ, in everything you think, say and do. To truly channel Christ’s Spirit (His WORDS – found in the Bible verse promises 2 John 1:9 ) you must surrender all your own desires for the desires of Christ to be channeled through you. You keep your own individuality, but will have the Divine touch of Christ on all your ways.

Actually it is like a ROMANCE. You are being wooed or romanced by a King! King Jesus. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords! WHY would you even WANT to resist HIM? IF you don’t resist Him you will be drawn to Him. He knows you intimately. More intimately than a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. HE KNOWS YOUR THOUGHTS! HE communicates with you through your MIND.

The more CLEAR your MIND is, the easier it is to HEAR HIS VOICE. So – and this is about the complete surrender of all things to be like Christ – to get Him INSIDE you – so to CLEAR your MIND you must stop EATING things that CLOUD it. Since this IS the information age, and you want ANSWERS quickly. Here it is: GO VEGAN right now. Don’t put another thing in your mouth that does not fit with a VEGAN diet. Go to Pinterest and search for RAW VEGAN RECIPES. You will find there are many MOUTH WATERING RAW RECIPES. REMEMBER THIS: IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to be like CHRIST while indulging appetite. If you want to be like Christ, HOLY and PERFECT, (which simply means that you are in agreement with both God and His Son, Christ who you ARE wanting to fill you with His OWN Spirit (WORDS) that are going to channel to others around you; right?) you must eat like Adam and Eve ate before they sinned. FRUITS, VEGETABLES, NUTS & GRAINS prepared as simply as possible. See http://www.Pinterest.com and search for RAW VEGAN RECIPES. Great instant resource there for you. Another option would be to get thisVibrant Health Maximum Vibrance Digestive Supplement, 24.9 Ounces​ and this: Amazing Black Mica Purifies Water here. THAT covers the food answer to clear your mind so you can channel Christ to others. Go Vegan to clear your mind of the “food drugs” so you can HEAR Christ speaking to your MIND.

Christ’s CHARACTER IS CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS! Christ wants to give you the items you need for beauty treatments be given to you so you can be purified, so your MIND can be PURIFED, cleansed from sin. Christ wants to GIVE you PERFUMES and SPICES to soak in to get you ready to go live in the sight of a Holy God without a mediator. Esther 2:12 “Now when every maid’s turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;)” Esther 2:9 She pleased him and won his favor. Immediately he provided her with her beauty treatments and special food (Vegan diet!). He assigned to her seven female attendants (represents 144,000 angels) selected from the king’s palace and moved her and her attendants into the best place in the harem (Zion=YOUR MIND transformed by claiming Bible verse promises the WORD of GOD, “MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT”).”

As you are going through your beauty treatments, Christ is every day walking back and forth near the courtyard of the harem (Zion=your MIND) to find out how you are and to learn what is happening to you.  WAITING, like a Bridegroom anxiously waits for His Bride to get ready. Get’s ready to receive HIS CHARACTER, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS WORDS, HIS FEELINGS! Psalms 100:4 tells us HOW to ENTER INTO CHRIST, INTO THE GATE TO HEAVEN. Through PRAISE. We enter into His COURTS, His MIND THROUGH PRAISE. PRAY IS PRAISE. SINGING IS PRAYING PRAISE… See Psalms 117 and 136!  Psalms 113 to 138.

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.” Ephesians 5:1-2

AND like the High Priest Aaron mixed up special spices that no one else could make, so God is giving you PERFUMES, SPICES that no one else can make.

Because it is the Song of YOUR EXPERIENCE, of knowing Christ. The PERFUMES and SPECIAL SPICES are the PRAYERS, or PRAISE that ascend to God through Christ’s mind from YOUR MIND. God told Moses to mix some olive oil and spices together to make the special anointing oil. Psalms 117 is a special praise perfume/spice you need to MEMORIZE and repeat…from your soul, you mind. IT needs to come from within you – it is CHRIST in you filling you with JOY, LOVE and PEACE that causes you to WANT to shout thanksgiving to God for Christ dwelling inside you. Praise God for the Gift of Christ. Psalms 113 to 138 are PRAISE PRAYERS that you should study and SAY and SING! PRAISE Him! Bless His Name! THE LORD, THE KING OF KINGS, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Like Queen Esther was GIVEN natural, beautiful, exotic blend of sweet odours that are represented today by our prayer and praise. Thanksgiving and praise to God and His Son for their merciful kindness toward us. See Psalms 117. Ezekiel 39:34 (NRSV) The Lord said to Moses: Take sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum, sweet spices with pure frankincense (an equal part of each), 35 and make an incense blended as by the perfumer, seasoned with salt, pure and holy; 36 and you shall beat some of it into powder, and put part of it before the covenant[g] in the tent of meeting where I shall meet with you; it shall be for you most holy. 37 When you make incense according to this composition, you shall not make it for yourselves; it shall be regarded by you as holy to the Lord. 38 Whoever makes any like it to use as perfume shall be cut off from the people.

The FEAST the 5 wise virgins go out from all 501c3 tax-exempt churches to JOIN is the FEAST of their MIND upon the Holy Scriptures. Find specific Bible promises that relate to your problems and desires and claim them as your very own promise from God Himself sent to you through His Son Jesus Christ. Feasting upon the Lamb of God Jesus Christ will change your character, your thoughts and feelings into His character, the Character or Righteousness of Christ.

The UNHOLY FEAST the 5 foolish virgins are eating and surprised by the unexpected denial into Christ’s MIND/CHARACTER is this:

Those who train the mind to seize upon everything which they can use as a peg to hang a doubt upon, and suggest these thoughts to other minds, will always find occasion to doubt. They will question and criticize everything that arises in the unfolding of truth, criticize the work and position of others, criticize every branch of the work in which they have not themselves a part.They will feed upon the errors and mistakes and faults of others, “until,” said the angel, “the Lord Jesus shall rise up from His mediatorial work in the heavenly sanctuary and shall clothe Himself with the garments of vengeance and surprise them at their unholy feast, and they will find themselves unprepared for the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Their taste has been so perverted that they would be inclined to criticize even the table of the Lord in His kingdom.” Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 689.2
 

“There is many a man in the humble walks of life today whom the Lord might designate as He did Abraham: “The friend of God.” Such men approve that which God approves and condemn that which He condemns. In their presence even the sinner feels a sense of awe, a restraint; for God is with them, and they are living epistles, known and read of all men. There is a softened tenderness, a dignity, a divine propriety, in their deportment, which gives them power (character/influence) over the hearts of their fellow men.”  {4T 615.3} 

   “In the work of reform to be carried forward today, there is need of men who, like Ezra and Nehemiah, will not palliate or excuse sin, nor shrink from vindicating the honor of God. Those upon whom rests the burden of this work will not hold their peace when wrong is done, neither will they cover evil with a cloak of false charity. They will remember that God is no respecter of persons, and that severity to a few may prove mercy to many. They will remember also that in the one who rebukes evil the spirit of Christ should ever be revealed. {PK 675.1}

Hebrews 10:20
by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Rom. 8:1)

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Rom. 5:9)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24)

We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death. (1 John 3:14)

Psalms:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. (Psalms 111:10)
Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. (Psalms 119:98)

Proverbs:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7)
My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: (Proverbs 1:8)
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
The wise shall inherit glory (Proverbs 3:35)
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom (Proverbs 4:7)
My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: (Proverbs 6:20)
Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not (Proverbs 8:33)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)
The wise in heart will receive commandments (Proverbs 10:8)
A wise son heareth his father’s instruction (Proverbs 13:1)
The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. (Proverbs 13:14)
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil (Proverbs 14:16)
There is Oil in the dwelling of the wise (Proverbs 21:20)
Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son (Proverbs 28:7)
Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father (Proverbs 29:3)

All these verses hold the promise of being wise in your ‘latter end’ (Proverbs 19:20). The ‘latter end’ is that most-waited-for time, that glorious time, when we shall hear the midnight cry, saying, “Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him” (Matt 25:6).

CHRIST – THE WISDOM AND POWER OF GOD

“Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:24

Gaining wisdom (Christ) is the key — the secret to having that precious Oil (character of Christ= the Holy Spirit, My Words are Spirit and they are LIFE) that the five Wise Virgins had. Having the Oil (Power) (character/influence) is merely a by-product, a result of being wise, and of being known by the Bridegroom. As Born-Again Believers, being wise, and avoiding being foolish, is the real issue. It is a New Covenant [Eternal Covenant] issue.

Christ confirms again and again what we have been seeing here. Christ was exhorting His Bride, when He said, “…O fools, and slow of heart to believe ALL that the prophets have spoken” (Luke 24:25). When Christ spoke those words, He spoke them as a warning to His Bride. He revealed that the foolish are ‘slow of heart,’ because they are not “DO-ers” of all the Prophets have spoken.

    Christ has promised the gift of the Holy Spirit (MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT CHRIST TELLS US. BIBLE PROMISES ARE ALIVE WITH HIMSELF, HIS CHARACTER, HIS THOUGHTS, HIS FEELINGS SPOKEN) to His church, and the promise belongs to us as much as to the first disciples.

But like every other promise, it is given on conditions.

There are many who believe and profess to claim the Lord’s promise; they talk about Christ and about the Holy Spirit, yet receive no benefit. They do not surrender the soul to be guided and controlled by the divine agencies.

We cannot use the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is to use US. Through the Spirit God works in His people “to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13. But many will not submit to this. They want to manage themselves. This is WHY they do not receive the heavenly gift. Only to those who wait humbly upon God, who watch for His guidance and grace, is the Spirit given. The power (divine/holy/character/thoughts and feelings/influence=bread of life, Christ’s character) of God awaits their demand and reception.

     This promised blessing, claimed by faith, brings all other blessings in its train. It is given according to the riches of the grace of Christ, and He is ready to supply every soul according to the capacity to receive.
