Our Redeemer Lives

Our Redeemer Lives

[click on title to download]

The 1888 message truths for this presentation are: 1) The humanity of Christ and its resulting meaning to us; 2) He is our Substitute in that He substitutes Himself for us, and we appear no more; and 3) Creation and redemption are the same thing.

The Real Presence - (1888 Core Belief)

The Real Presence

BEFORE the Lord Jesus Christ went away from the world, he said to his disciples, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:18.

As he was about to ascend to heaven from the Mount of Olives, he said again to his disciples, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature; . . . and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Matt. 28:20.

Christ's by Crucifixion.

"They that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the passions and lusts." It is by death that we become joined to Christ. As many as are baptized into Christ, have put on Christ (Gal. 5:27), and as many as have been baptized into Christ, have been baptized into His death (Rom. 6:3). "Our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin." Rom. 6:6, 7.

Digital Book: "The Glad Tidings"

"The Glad Tidings is a commentary on the Book of Galatians in the New Testament. From beginning to end, the reader will experience the everlasting Gospel; the cross of Christ; righteousness by faith; the New Covenant; and the ever present and personal Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. The Glad Tidings is full of practical good news and answers the most basic spiritual longings of the heart and soul. Ellet J. Waggoner’s depth of insight and simple style will leave the reader with the impression that he wrote with authority and credentials from above."

Knowing Christ

The question for everyone is, “Do you know that Christ lives in you? Are you joined to Him?” There are many who are workers for Him professedly, who dare not say that Christ lives in them; they do not know that Christ is one with them. When we were bearing crosses after the manner we have described, we could not say, “Christ lives in me.” So we were separated from Him, and thus separated from His cross.

The Complete Gospel: "Christ in you, the hope of glory"

Many speak, teach and firmly believe in the idea of the theme: “in Christ.” This is well and good, but it represents only part of the truth - one facet of the gospel. The complete gospel is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

We understand that the main theme of the 1888 General Conference, what was presented by the Lords messengers - Elder Waggoner and Jones - was righteousness by faith. However, what is not pointed out is that it is righteousness by faith because of Christ being in the believer - He is our righteousness.

"The Faith of Christ."

"The Faith of Christ."

       Much is lost, in reading the Scriptures, by not noting exactly what they say. Here we have literally, "the faith of Christ," just as in Rev. 14:12 we have "the faith of Jesus." He is the Author and Finisher of faith. Heb. 12:2. God has "dealt to every man the measure of faith" (Rom. 12:3), in giving Christ to every man. "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom. 10:17), and Christ is the Word. All things are of God. It is He who gives repentance and forgiveness of sins. {80}
