Should Adventists live together in communities? Is this the will of God? What about selling parcels of the land which is next door to an Adventist project to fellow Adventists in order to finance the project? This article is a compilation of quotations from Ellen White concerning Adventist communities. In summary she writes, "The light given over and over again by the Spirit of God is, Do not colonize..."
There are some things in the Gospel that we need clarified. I think that many of us could testify that something is missing from our life. Many of us try so hard to be ready for Jesus' second coming, but if we are honest, we do not know how we are ever going to be ready. And so it is my prayer that our contemplation will help you. It is actually the answer that we all need...
I was hoping to have begun recording and uploading a new video series by now, but there's been delay after delay. But the transcript for an extra supplemental study I was going to slot in after a few studies on faith is just too encouraging for me to keep it to myself and wait until [...]

God's word will never fail. But our unbelief can prevent its fulfilment in our own lives, while it will be fulfilled in the lives of others. Concerning His word, God says that which proceeds from His mouth is like the rain that comes down and waters the earth, bringing forth seed to the sower and [...]

Question: Is the number of the 144,000 made up of only those who are living at the time when probation closes, or does it include any of those who have died since 1844?
