The Beauty of Nature


Sabbath, May 20, 2017

Sabbath was a beautiful day in West Virginia yesterday. We opened Sabbath School with prayer and song service and were thankful for each one who was able to join us either through the Internet classroom or by phone conferencing. Next was a science demonstration by Pastor Stump, who explained Isaac Newton and the color wheel and who drew spiritual lessons from the science of color. We then listened to a story about Leonard C. Lee, who became a minister and a radio evangelist in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. When he was just 5 years old, however, a prairie fire crossed his family’s farm in North Dakota. He survived only because he had learned to obey his father and because he had stayed, as commanded, within a back-burned circle of protection, all by himself, while the fire raged around him, until he could be rescued. You can read his firsthand account in Guide’s Greatest Rescue Stories. The Sabbath School lesson continued in J. N. Andrews’s book, History of the Sabbath. This week we considered the sabbath reformation Jesus taught while he was here on earth, especially as he taught by his works of healing on the sabbath day, for which the Jewish leaders sought to destroy him. Also presented, for later study, was a lesson paper entitled Footlights, which this week focused on creation. The files for Footlights and for the lesson on the sabbath are available on the Smyrna home page.

The Worship Hour began with prayer and a congregational hymn. The congregational prayer was led by Brother Michael Woodward, after prayer requests had been shared. Then Pastor Stump shared the message of the hour, entitled “A Revival of Gnosticism,” a very timely sermon about truth and salvation. The audio for this sermon is available here, and the theme will be continued next sabbath, as Pastor Stump considers the so-called 2520 prophecy in greater detail. We encourage you to listen to yesterday’s sermon now, in preparation for next week’s sermon.

We also encourage you to continue your daily Bible and Spirit of Prophecy readings. We know you will be blessed and strengthened by them. Quizzes to accompany the chapters in The Acts of the Apostles, where we are reading now, are linked below as well as the final chapters of The Desire of Ages.

Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. (Matthew 12:12)
