This Too Shall Pass

My son’s surgeon informed us of the risks and benefits of surgery to repair inguinal hernia. The medicaid insurance typically responds in two weeks. He scheduled the surgery on October 14. If my son’s inguinal hernia will be incarcerated in his groin before it then we have to rush to the nearest hospital (45 minutes away) to be operated before the 14th. To correct the inguinal hernia through surgery is the only solution as it will not just go away, the surgeon said.

I was doing my livestream when our lights flash off and on. The winds are howling outside. Southwest direction at 22 mph. I could hear some branches falling onto our roof. The rain is light but has been predicted to be 1.8 inches in the next 24 hours. I just pray we will be able to have our meals ready today and for the Sabbath. Hurricane Ian’s landfall here is expected by around 2pm.

I think our power might be affected later. I hope it wont. I have no generator. I have a Zoom meeting tonight by 8. But I can’t predict where this storm will hit hard.

I am grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement. I realize that among the One True God believers around the world there are many other views about Jesus’ divinity and human nature. Also some non-essential teachings that are being brought at the forefront as essential to salvation. The caveat is for the sake of truthful speculations. And there are flat earth theories, Sabbath 6pm rule, the original sin, Christ’s divine powers, etc. I understand as God’s people receive revelation the devil is deceiving us to trust on our own wisdom to probe details that were not meant for us to know if the Bible is silent.

I rely fully on “to the law and to the testimony” of Isaiah 8:20. Yet I do not want to be deceived by my own understanding without aid from heaven. I desire to trust completely on the Scripture. To seek counsel from the Spirit of Prophecy. To depend wholly on the Holy Spirit of Jesus. And sound advise from godly people.

Validating the 1844 experience of the SDA pioneers as the basis of the fundamental principles and that their earnest study of the Scripture is from God. That the Bible is a divine source and guide. That I am not under the authority of man but of God the Father. I believe wisdom come from collective minds uniting in the truth.

Storms of life will come to pass. What remains will be memory of experiences that had led us to God the Father and His Son.

“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:3.

Heaven is dear no storms pass there. Those false winds of unbiblical doctrines will soon pass away.

Sincerely in the Blessed Hope!
