"The Ten Commandments, whether engraved on tables of stone or written in a book, are only statements of the righteousness of God. Righteousness means right doing. It is active. The righteousness of God is God's right doing, His way. And since all His ways are right, it follows that the righteousness of God is nothing less than the life of God. The written law is not action, but only a description of the action. It is a picture of the character of God." Ellet J. Waggoner
"True faith is obedience. "This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He has sent" (John 6:29)." Ellet J. Waggoner
"Faith is the breath of life to the Christian. So just as we naturally live from breath to breath, we are to live spiritually from faith to faith. We can live but one breath at a time; so we can not live spiritually except by present faith." Ellet J. Waggoner
"Christ died, but He still lives, and His life in us keeps us united to God. The imparting of His life to us frees us from sin and the continuing of it in us, keeps us from sin." Ellet J. Waggoner
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Rom. 8:14-16). Ellet J. Waggoner
"These men had been with one mind persevering in prayer for this very object. They were also of that class mentioned in John 7:17; they had been, and were still, followers of Christ; so it was to be expected that they should know of the doctrine. And lastly, they had studied the word of God for themselves, and had done all they could to understand it." Ellet J. Waggoner
"If it were true that the Spirit did testify to us, apart from the Bible, then we should have nothing but our own minds by which to determine whether or not any impression is really from the Spirit." Ellet J. Waggoner
"It took nothing less than the Divine life of Christ to meet the demands of the law. Unless one has more than this to give, he can do more than is required." ~Ellet J. Waggoner
We have had requests for a searchable Topical Index for easier studying of the material on this site. We are looking for just the right module to add so that we can provide this useful tool.
In the mean time, please use the Search feature already on the site. It is located on the right side of the Menu bar and just under the 1888 logo.
Enter any word of phrase you wish to find and then press GO.
To see how useful this can be, enter 'Holy Spirit'; click GO; and see how it works!
I hope this is helpful for now until we add the Topical Index.

"Conviction is showing a man that he is guilty. Condemnation is the putting of the sentence upon him. We are already under condemnation, because of transgression. "Now the Lord comes to us and convicts us by his Spirit, but when He has brought us to this place where we are convicted and acknowledge the fact that we have sinned and are worthy of death, just there the Lord comes in and takes away the condemnation. He carries us to that point, and then the sentence is remitted." Ellet J. Waggoner
