Hello, Church! My names Nathan and im an Australian lay pastor currently serving in an adventist church in the heart of Beijing, China. I hope that you like this video I made. And that if you receive a blessing from it, that maybe you would like to share it with your friends so that others might receive encouragement and inspiration from it aswell. Id like to invite you into my experience as a Christian, sharing with you one of the most impactful moments of all in my walk with God - my Psalm 51 experience So I invite you to experience through this short video, Psalm 51 with me. I hope it encourages you, inspires you, and moves you like it has for me for so many years. May you find Jesus through this Psalm, and may you find through it a turning point in the Gospel in your own personal life. https://youtu.be/SoU5NrAOxaA God bless you, and it is a pleasure to do ministry together. Nathan

IT IS FINISHED FOR ISRAEL By Irene Nawila We are at a critical time in the history of our planet earth. Daniel saw this time and wrote, “At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people; and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book” (Daniel 12:1). The time of trouble such us never was is right before us. Soon the righteous will live without an intercessor. This is the time the world has been waiting for. On 22nd October 2018, the Lord gave me a vision. That evening we had just received our last meal when the Lord gave me the vision. The things presented to me in this vision were and are still so terrifying. My heart is sick knowing that many who claim to know and believe the truth will not be saved. They claim to be Sabbath- keepers and yet reject God’s mercy, despised His love, refuse to abide in the truth. They have turned away their ears from the truth, and have turned to fables. We are living in a time of peril and spiritual despondency, and of temptations. Therefore, we are to be diligent workers, vigilant, and watchful as we wait for the coming of the Son of man. In the vision I was told to go and work in my Father’s field. Whilst working, an angel came to encourage me. Then he said, “. Lift up your eyes to the heavens.” I lifted mine eyes and saw the heavens opened. An angel stood at the entrance into the third heaven holding an open scroll. And another angel flying swiftly from the earth, entered through the opening into the paradise of God, he went straight into the most holy place of the Sanctuary above, and stood before the high priest who sat on his Judgment seat. The angel talked to the high priest. I asked the angel who talked with me saying, “What is the angel was doing there.” The angel answered and said, “He is the angel who was sent to put a mark on the foreheads of the servants of God. He is there to report that his work is done.” When John saw the angel descend from the east and cry with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, the sealing work began. The LORD commanded the man who had the writer's inkhorn by his side saying, “to go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem (the Church), and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof” (Ezekiel 9:4). For many years the work of sealing had been hindered, and delayed, but now the work is finished. The faithful messenger had been sealing God's servants and has finished the work. The sealed are they who will vindicate God’s character and be able to stand on the great day of “the wrath of the Lamb.” After this, I saw seven doves in form of fire from the earth enter into the most holy place. When they had passed through the veil, it was rent in two, from the top to the bottom. And the veil was removed from its place, living the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven without a covering veil. Then the seven doves surrounded Jesus making a circle of fire around him. I asked what these were, and the angel told me that they are the seven spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth (see Revelation 5:6). When the work in the earthly sanctuary was fulfilled, Matthew tells us what happened. “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent” (Matthew 27:50, 52). So to signify the end of the work of the high priest in the heavenly sanctuary, what took place then is to repeat. The veil is significant in the plan of salvation. Paul said, “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh.” Hebrews 10:19, 20. According to the scripture the veil represents the flesh of Christ. As long as the veil was in the sanctuary the sinner has access to God. Through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. He was that new and living way which had been opened to humanity. Then I asked the angel saying, “What does this mean?” he said the door of mercy for the Seventh-day Adventist Church has been closed, and Judgment has moved to the unbelievers. I asked how the door has been closed, because we are told that the temple will be closed. He said, the door to be closed is the door of mercy. As the door of mercy closes for the church, the veil of the temple is rent from the top to the bottom. But when probation finally closes for all the nations of this earth, the temple will be filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man will be able to enter into the temple (see Revelation 15:8). After these things, Jesus went to his father. I did not know when he had left the throne, I only saw Him going to the father. He had removed the garments of Judgment. And the holy law of Jehovah was raised up, showing the whole universe that Christ was just and merciful. He came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill its every specification. And through the lives of His children He has demonstrated that mortal man can keep the law of God. The law which was weakened because of sin has now been strengthened. The throne of the father was all fire and a rainbow surrounded the Holy One. For a long time Jesus stood before the throne waiting to be called by the Father. Then a voice like thundering was heard from the throne and Jesus went to the Father and said in thundering tone, “it is done.” And there was thundering and lightening. Then Jesus sat on the Father’s throne, and was anointed as king of kings and a kingly crown was placed upon His brow. Then the angel said to me, “Go and tell your people that the messenger sent to mark God’s servants in Israel has finished his work. Therefore, the work in Israel has completed. Tell them that the work of judgment which the Father started in the sanctuary above has come to the end. The Father did his part, and gave the work of judgment to his Son. Since 1844 AD, Jesus has been judging the house of Israel. Therefore, probation for the house of Israel has closed. Tell them that now the Holy Spirit is to do His work, He will give you power to proclaim the first, second and third angels messages to the world with a loud voice, and the Judgment of the other nations will take place. The Father and His beloved Son will sit to Judge the other nations. This is the last phase of the judgment work. Tell them that this Judgment will not take long. And tell them that the chariot is being prepared and Jesus is about to come to deliver His people.” The Angel told me that God’s people are to be decided in their profession of Christ, and they should be just as determined in living an earnest, consistent life, that will correspond to their calling. He told me that from now until the out pouring of the latter rain, Israel will be eating the “last spiritual meal.” God’s servants will be sustained by the spiritual food they are eating now during the approaching time of famine spoken of by Amos the prophet saying, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find [it]. In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.” Amos 8:11-13. What spiritual food are we to eat now? It is the messages of the three angels in Revelation 14:7-12, and that of the angel of Revelation 18:1-3 and that of the voice in verse 4. These messages are to be our food before the coming of the latter rain.
Howdy Dear AUC Friends: Happy New Year… hopefully it’s off to a great start so far for you! Do you know that Thayer Performing Arts Center is still running at the AUC campus (within the historic, handsome Thayer Hall / Conservatory). It’s known as “TPAC” (affectionately pronounced “tee-pack”) and is currently the only functioning academic program remaining on campus; but it has had to become independent and self-sustaining as there is no more budget money coming from the college, conferences or Atlantic Union to fund its edifying music ministry programs. Over $10,000 has already been donated to help meet heating and other operational costs for this school year, but we are yet in dire need of raising another $20,000 immediately in order to retain the director and secretary for smoother and fuller operation of this special non-profit organization. That is why I’m specifically reaching out to you and some 200 other potentially interested persons and humbly asking you to please consider donating $100 to help TPAC retain its director and secretary (both part time positions, but essential none-the-less). With just 200 tax-deductible donations of $100 each the full amount can quickly be raised, especially with your help. Please let me share with you some more details. TPAC has been operating for over four and a half decades now, formerly known as The Preparatory School of Music (at AUC’s Thayer Conservatory). That’s nearly half a century thus far of magnificent music at Thayer! Today it operates under the direction and auspices of the popular Youth Ensemble of New England (Dr. Connie Rittenhouse-Drexler conducting). Earl Raney, TPAC Director, is no stranger to Thayer. He has served as TPAC director for the past several years, having begun his affiliation with Thayer back in the 1980s when he first started serving as a talented trumpet teacher (which he continues to do while also administrating TPAC). Earl’s friendly expertise and professional experience have been tremendous assets to TPAC and the students studying there. Without his capable and creative administration we shudder to think how TPAC may suffer in properly providing its music ministry mission to the Lancaster community and northeast region. Please help us retain his valuable services and leadership with your kind and generous tax-deductible donation today. It is easy to give! Please do so now… either online at www.tpacma.org or by sending your check to Thayer Performing Arts Center, PO Box 511, Lancaster, MA 01523. Won’t you please donate $100 to help keep the director and secretary employed at TPAC? If not, perhaps you’d still consider giving a smaller amount? Whether your donation is $100, or an amount greater or lesser, the sooner we raise the money needed to keep the director and secretary on the better. Because TPAC wasn’t certain it could continue operating within Thayer Conservatory building until nearly September of last year (2018), valuable time was lost to do fuller recruitment and solicitation. Hence our urgent need now to close the unfortunate gap in this year’s budget. Despite this handicap there are currently 104 satisfied students benefiting from this important music ministry this school year. Praise the Lord! You may visit TPAC’s website for a brief overview of TPAC 2018-19, including the various musical offerings and staff who help make this a successful endeavor: www.tpacma.org TPAC’s music ministry is unique, not only for those making it happen, but likewise to the thousands who are blessed in attending the many concerts, recitals and special music performances the students and staff share not only in the local community but throughout the region on frequent tours. Won’t you please help us continue functioning full throttle with our dear director and his secretary? Thank you for your consideration and hopefully also for your much appreciated contribution. Your prayers too are valued and needed. God bless, John C. Schumacher-Hardy (774-415-1201 / [email protected]) TPAC Historian PS: Again… please send a donation of $100 to TPAC today… either online at www.tpacma.org or by sending your check to Thayer Performing Arts Center, PO Box 511, Lancaster, MA 01523 (simply make your check payable to “TPAC”). AND feel free to please share this letter with anyone you know who may likewise be interested in supporting the music ministry at TPAC. Thank you! 

[02/15/20]   We join the Northeastern Conference family in prayer for the Semper family who experienced tragedy last night while en route to a conference workshop. See the note from the Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Facebook post below.

TRAGEDY STRIKES DURING NEC CLERKS & TREASURER’S WORKSHOP

Last night, immediately after the opening service of our Clerks and Treasurers Workshop, Brother Clyde Semper & Sister Gloria Semper of the Hanson Place Church suffered a head on collision a few hundred yards from Camp Victory Lake while going to their hotel for the night. Sister Gloria did not survive the crash. Bro. Clyde sustained non-life threatening injuries and is expected to be discharged from Mid Hudson Regional Hospital Today.

Over 400 workshop participants paused to pray this morning for the Semper family as well as the Hanson Place congregation as they grieve this loss.

This annual training is sponsored by NEC’s Secretariat and Treasury to equip local church clerks and treasurers to faithfully carry out their functions.

Nature shows us that God enjoys variety, as well as the need to work together while still maintaining our uniqueness. The February 2020 GLEANER reminds us that while we move together in the mission of taking the Adventist, Christ-centered message of hope and wholeness to our communities, friends, and neighbors, our methods may vary. A good first step is to assess the evangelistic health of your church with a short survey located on page 8. Next, get some inspiration to spark your evangelism efforts by reading the inspirational stories shared by churches around the Atlantic Union Conference. Meet a doctor who provides his patients with organic vegetables grown from a garden located at his practice; be inspired by youth using their music ministry to bring hope to cancer patients; learn about two van-based ministries meeting the needs in communities and how you can utilize them in your area; and much more.
