HAYSTACKS #8: Kingdom
We are using the word "HAYSTACKS" to highlight nine key ideas that make Adventists Adventist. In a time of societal fracture, we must know who and what we are.
So far, we have highlighted "H" for Hope, "A" for Advent, "Y" for Youthful Eternity, "S" for Sabbath, "T" for Temperance, "A" for Alpha and Omega, and "C" for Counter-cultural. "K" today, might not be the first or second thing to come to mind. But "Kingdom" is a primary emphases that is part and parcel of Adventism.Read more...
HAYSTACKS #7: Counter-cultural
As followers of Jesus, Seventh-day Adventists are counter-cultural. The "C" in our HAYSTACKS series stands for "Counter-cultural."
Inevitably we are producers, maintainers, participants in culture. Yet God sends us as missionaries into the culture. We are not non-cultural or a-cultural, but counter-cultural. We are live demonstrations, a divine invasion, soldiers marching through Satan's culture. We are not a gaggle of "No's" sent running through the earth, but a battalion of "Yes's"--agents demonstrating a different way.Read more...

Day for the End of Days
Our heavenly Father never sleeps. Jesus sees ahead. The Holy Spirit stands beside you with you in this place in your life right now. Nothing sneaks up on God. You experience surprise, I do; God sees it before. Nothing in this week's news surprised Him; nothing tomorrow.Read more...
HAYSTACKS #6: Alpha and Omega
Today our series exploring key pieces of Adventism continues. We use the acronym "HAYSTACKS": "H" stands for "Hope," and our historic focus on Scripture and prophecy. "A" is for "Advent," Jesus is returning. Second Coming occurs very soon! "Y" stands for "Youthful Eternity." In the earth made new, those who accept Jesus and His unselfish principle of life, will receive new bodies, experiencing a perpetual youthfulness. The first "S" is for "Sabbath." God prepared His rest in the beginning, not merely to help us slow down for 24 hours, but that we might experience focused communion with Him on His holy day. "T" is for "Temperance," living the abundant life, refusing to be enslaved in sensation or anesthetized by food.
It has been impossible at any letter to leave Jesus out. Adventists are VERY interested in Jesus. We look to His soon return, but we're also deeply curious about Him. How did He live? How did He overcome? How can He be our pattern? How can we live a life that pleases Him?Read more...
The Grand Illusion
The Bible says that man is made in God's image. Humans are designed. We are not gods but we are designed with a similarity to the one true God.
Children are like parents, each unique. They possess traits echoing us. All of us represent something larger than ourselves. We're designed for eternal life but we're not immortal yet.Read more...
