The Gospel Herald -- Promoting the fundamentals of the 1888 message.
The 1888 message from a pastor's perspective
  • The 1888 Message—An Introduction — Revised and Enlarged by the author: Now the 1888 messengers are allowed to tell the Adventist grand jury in their own words in ample context what their message actually was (and is).
  • The Backward Prayer —It about takes your breath away when you realize what it means! Here is a prayer that is a complete turnaround from the kind of prayers we are used to praying.
  • Faith on Trial—A documentation of 40 Years of Official Dialogue; Letters to and from the General Conference in the files of Donald K. Short and Robert J. Wieland
  • Grace on Trial—Why should a message of “much more abounding grace” be on trial within the Seventh-day Adventist Church? Why was it opposed by pastors and leaders when it came in 1888?
  • 1888 Re-examined—revised and updated by the original authors, Robert J. Wieland and Donald K. Short. The story of a century of confrontation between God and His people.
  • “Lightened With His Glory”—Questions and Answers About the 1888 Message. The history and content of the 1888 message are of keen interest to Seventh-day Adventists around the world. Ellen White has said repeatedly that failure to understand and to accept that message has geratly retarded the progress of the church and delayed the triumph of the "everlasting Gospel" message.
  • Mary Magdalene: The Woman the World Can Never Forget—The Four Gospels furnish a surprisingly complex knowledge of who she was and why she did her outlandish deed. Yet Jesus has enjoined upon us the duty of telling this story of Mary Magdalene “wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world.”
  • The 1888 Message of Justification by Faith in Relation to the Seventh-day Adventist Idea of the Cleansing of the Heavenly Sanctuary. Adventist's are generally agreed on the fact that Revelation 10 describes the 1844 movement.
  • “Splendente Di Gloria”—Domande e Risposte relative al Messaggio del 1888
    L'umanità che langue tragicamente nelle tenebre, attende l’ultimo messaggio dell'Evangelo che dovrà illuminare la terra con la sua gloria.
  • The Golden Chain—Is there a Broken Link? How seriously do Seventh-day Adventists consider the humanity of Jesus? Did He take the humanity of Adam before the fall?—or that of humanity after the fall?—or something half-way between?
  • A New Look at God's Law—How the Ten Commandments Become Good News
    Believe how "I am the Lord your God who has already (historical past tense) brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage," and His Ten Commandments metamorphose before your eyes into assurances of blessings.
  • Righteousness by Faith and the Cleansing of the Sanctuary—An outline study explaining why this subject is so important.
  • The Knocking at the Door — There is a neglected but essential preparation to make before the final outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Later Rain can possibly come. There must be something in the Laodicean message which we have not understood or received.
  • Corporate Repentance: Plea of the True Witness—Bandaids won't work—not any longer. Christ says that the main problem is deep—it lies with the "angel" of the church, its leadership. The topic discussed in this book is arousing deep interest worldwide.
  • What Did Christ Accomplish On His Cross—The 1888 message recognizes that on His cross Christ legally justified the entire human race and won for "all men" a "verdict of acquittal" that reversed the "condemnation" "in Adam." But the sinner may choose to resist and reject what Christ has already given him, and thus elect to be lost.
  • Taking the Deadlock Out of Wedlock — or, How to Live With an Ornery Spouse—Sometimes what appears to be orneriness is a spouse leads to misunderstandings. A sincere effort to understand how the opposite sex thinks usually makes this kind of "orneriness" evaporate. (PDF)
  • Ten Gospel Truths - that make the 1888 message unique. Christ has already accomplished something for every human being. God's gracious love is so strong and persistent that the sinner must resist it in order to be lost. It is actually easy to be saved and hard to be lost if one understands and believes how good the Good News is. A misunderstanding of God's character causes us to think He is trying to hide from us. In seeking us, Christ came all the way to where we are, taking upon Himself "the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh." (Includes many Bible references, as well as what A.T. Jones, E.J. Waggoner, and Ellen G. White actually taught on the subject)

  • Psalm 22 and the atonement. Psalm 22 is a transcript as if there were a stenographer present at Calvary. This stenographer took down the thoughts that Jesus had — His prayer.

  • In Search of the Treasure of Faith Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, the Beneficent, the Merciful, Owner of the day of judgment. Thee (alone) we worship: Thee (alone) we ask for help. Show us the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast favoured—not (the path) of those who earn Thy anger nor of those who go astray.
  • Bible Repentance: Path to Love The Christian church was formed by a call to repentance. After it was formed during four of the seven periods or conditions symbolized by the seven churches, God calls upon her again to repent.
  • A.T. Jones: The Man and the Message Are we repeating the tragic rejection of God's leading that was the problem of the General Conference a century ago at and after Minneapolis? The evidence disclosed should bring every serious-minded Seventh-day Adventist to repentance and deep contrition. Will we repeat the sad unbelief which plagued us a century ago?
  • Does the Sanctuary Make Sense? "What is the significance of 1844 other than a mathematical puzzle?" Unless this question finds an answer, devotion to the Sanctuary message dries up.
