Quo Vadis. Translated from Latin: ” Where are you going?”

Who are we? Quo Vadis is another Satellite ministry on the horizon.  We may ask, Why another one? Don’t we have enough of them?  This was our question too, Do we need another new ministry? There are so many Adventist channels, why another one?

Let me start by introducing ourselves: We have been in the SDA message for 50 years. We believe in all the doctrines and fundamental beliefs of the SDA CHURCH. We believe in the imminent return of Christ and are hoping this will happen in our life-time.

But our question is:  Where are we going?? Are we ready for that imminent return of Jesus Christ?

Can Jesus accept us as we live right now?  Are we reconciled with our fellow men, is there anything that can keep us out of heaven.  Do we have a real, personal, relationship with Christ, and do we even understand what that means?

There are many cliché’s in our circles that are being thrown around, but I believe many of us have no personal understanding of Christ. We so easily follow the preachers and they become our hero’s because we flock after them. One day we will stand alone before Christ and possibly in the world to give an account of our own faith.

We need to know how to love Him and  how  to surrender our will to Christ’s will,  what it means to die to self, what it means to be born again, what it means to walk the narrow and straight way despite any obstacles, despite of pain and sorrow, despite trials, despite persecution, despite slander or any other hurtful situation.

What can keep us out of heaven?  If we look at the example Jesus gave us, the 10 virgins were all waiting for the Bridegroom but half of them were not ready. Why were they not ready? What could keep them out of heaven? We have many answers for that,  but do we really understand what the lack of oil means? We have different definitions of what the oil means, but I am looking at another passage in Matthew 25: 31-46 where Jesus describes the day when He will return and separate the sheep from the goats:

But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink. I was a stranger, and you took Me in. I was naked, and you clothed Me. I was sick, and you visited Me. I was in prison, and you came to Me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give You a drink? When did we see You as a stranger, and take You in; or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

“The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to Me.’ Then he will say also to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you didn’t give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and you didn’t take me in; naked, and you didn’t clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

“Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’

“Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you didn’t do it to one of the least of these, you didn’t do it to me.’ These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

In Matt 7:23 He uses even stronger words, “I never knew you … Depart from me you workers of iniquity…”.

Who are those people Jesus will never know? People of the world?  No, those people are us, the church people who are part of the religious realm by going to church, teaching and proclaiming that Jesus is coming soon and believe that because we are part of the movement we will automatically have ticket to heaven because we “have the truth” .  It is easier to believe they were the people of the world, but no, it was not necessarily pagans who were the workers of iniquity.

Should we not closely analyze our own lives through God’s eyes and see which group we are really marching with?

Friends,

… Where are we going?

Quo Vadis.
