A Precious Soul — Sister E

Moments of Faith Praying Woman Sculpture   -

We read in Revelation 7 —

 “And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” (Rev. 7:1-4)

We know as present truth believers that the sealing of the 144,000 is taking place now. That soon the SDA church judgment will come and the final members of the 144,000 will be sealed during the half hour silence , spoken of in Rev. 8:1.

We also know that they are termed “virgins” (Rev. 14:4). Granted it speaks of men, but of course we know that the 144,000 will consist of both men and women. Inspiration describes what “virgin” means in that Scripture context —

“They are called virgins because they profess a pure faith.” (COL, p.406)

This week a most wonderful thing occured which we knew that we should praise the Lord and tell about it. About 13 years ago, yours truly met his wife through a online site. She is from a former USSR country. But as the Lord provided, that religion restricted country now called the “Russian federation”, broke it’s chains back in 1989-92. Religion was soon less restricted and former agnostics and non-believers embraced Christianity.

To summarize our story, I had become an SDA in the beginning of 2009, after a classic life of the prodigal son. My life was one of money and pleasures, but praise the Lord , He never stopped looking out the window, awaiting my arrival home! I came home indeed!

Soon after that I met my wife. She was a Sunday keeping Christian at that time. After some studies and long discussion (she was not willing at first) she finally “saw the light” on the keeping of the Sabbath. She soon found a “Jewish-Christian” church in her area and started going to Sabbath services each Saturday.

Thus we became of one faith and our relationship grew. After 8 long years, she finally made it here to USA and we got married. Both of us attending the local SDA churches.

But unbeknowest to us, the Lord was using us to influence another greatly, it was her sister, sister E. As time went by sister E was most likely hearing the voice of the Lord in regards to what my wife and I were practicing –Sabbath keeping.

Sister E is in her early 40’s and she is one of the rarest of humans — a literal virgin. She is soft spoken and very attractive. She became a Christian in 2005. Of course being in a former USSR country her church taught very basic Christianity and of course Sunday as the day of worship.

Fast forward to about 4 weeks ago. My wife and her talk frequently by whatsapp. Sister E mentioned that she had watched a “great video” on YouTube about the Sabbath from a woman who was a Seventh-day Adventist. My wife told me about it and I said “praise the Lord”.

This week were heard from her that she had made the decision for keeping the Sabbath, as she was convicted of this Commandment. we were so happy! Here we have a dedicated woman who has remained pure all her life and now she has found the “day of the Lord”!

The Scriptures tell us how the Lord SAID He wants us to show we love Him —

“If you love Me, keep My Commandments.” (John 14:15)

Now sister E is following the Lord in the real sense, not only that, but proving she “loves” Him as He said! Words can’t describe our joy. Could she be found among that number? We don’t know but surely she has been blessed with dedication and purity that few have ever experienced. Please pray for sister E as she takes up her new walk with our King. Amen!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Cor. 5:17)

      Ellen white says in the book; Home missionary. That we have spent precious time arguing over church doctrine and proving things that were not meant to be proved at all.my point Christ in Matthew 25 as he give of the parable of needy person who are in hospitals, prison,hungry etc will not ask at the end of time as in why didn’t you follow the 28 fundamental beliefs but he will ask us if we meet the needs of the poor and whether we relieved the sick
