"DON'T GIVE UP AND QUIT!"
They were admiring the tea pot and all of a sudden the teapot began to talk to them. It said, "You know, I haven't always been like this. There was a time when nobody would have wanted me. There was a time when I was not attractive at all and not much use to the master. I was so broken and not fit for anything but the trash I thought."
You see there was a time in my life when I was just an old hard gray lump of clay and the Master Potter came along and picked me up one day and he began to pat, twist, turn me and reshape me and I said, "Stop it ! What are you doing? That hurts! Don't do that! Moaning, achhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Leave me alone! " And he simply looked at me and said, "Not Yet."
And then he put me on this wheel and he began to spin me around and around and around and around and I got so dizzy that I couldn't even hardly see where I was going anymore. I was loosing it! Everything was spinning around and around and around and I felt sick to my stomach and I said, " Let me off of here!" And he said, "Not yet."
The oven door had glass in it and the Master would look in there and he had this big old grin on his face and this certain look in his eyes. And he wouldn't let me out. And he would just smile at me and say, "Not yet." Finally, the oven door opened and he took me out and set me up on a shelf and I thought "Whew!" Thank YAHUVEH that is over! But then he began to paint me all over with this stinking paint changing my color from gray to this pretty GOLD that I am now. And I said, "This stuff stinks! It is choking me! Kawf, hack! kawf, I don't like this smell! Stop IT! Stop it! Stop it! He would just say, "Not Yet." (Anybody recognize the symptoms?) I have said these words to YAHUSHUA, have you? Then he put me back in the oven for the second time over and this is called the second firing. And it was twice as hot as the first oven and I thought I will die in here for sure. This is the end of me! This will finish me off. "GET ME OUT OF HERE, I CANT STAND IT! I CAN'T STAND IT! Really I am telling you I can't stand it! This is going to kill me, get me out of here now!" And he just looked through that glass and say, "NOT yet"
And then one day the door opened and he took me out and put me up here on this shelf to let me cool off. And after I cooled off one day, he came by and he handed me this mirror and I looked at myself and I couldn't believe how beautiful I was. I couldn't believe how I had changed! I didn't look anything at all like that old piece of gray clay that I started out to be. Now I am this beautiful little delicate "tea pot" and everybody wants me now.
(I don't know if I have arrived to this state yet.)
Personal note from Rev. Elisabeth.
But there was a time in my life when nobody wanted me, nobody liked me, nobody paid any attention to me, they just kicked me around and walked on me. But now I am special, but I wasn't always this way! Now he uses my pain to minister to others, so they know they are not alone in their sufferings, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH takes the time to mold us and make us more into his image so we could glorify HIM! and Father YAHUVEH!
Romans 8 says that we are predestined to be molded into the image of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. Wow! That was YAHUVEH's plan from the very beginning even before we showed up on planet earth. He says, "I want you to be just like my Son, YAHUSHUA."
That will obviously take a work in our lives because by the time we submit our lives to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH we usually have quite a few problems, made a lot of mistakes that take YAHUVEH time to get us out of them and we need a pretty awesome work done in us.
YAHUVEH wants to do something through you, so you have got to let him do something to you. Every time we come up a little bit higher a little bit of our flesh has to go down lower. He is the potter and we are the clay. Let him mold us into his image. It hurts a heck of a lot, but in the end we will see it was for a purpose, and it is worth it!
We are All in this Fiery Furnace together and the Bible says in I Peter, I:7, "That the trial of your faith being much more precious than gold that perisheth, though it might be tried with fire, might be found onto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH." It says in Psalms 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them ALL!
Read Prophecy #7 (No More Crumbs) and hang on tight to the hem of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH's garment with me! OK? Is there really any other choice? He will deliver us in YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH'S timing! NOT OURS!

We are Sabbath-Keepers, Not Seventh-Day Adventists...
We believe in the rapture, we believe there is a hell eternal, we believe to be absent from the body is to be present with YAHUSHUA, also named in Greek JESUS CHRIST. Seventh-Day Adventists believe the lie of soul sleep. Remember the thief hanging on the cross who, because he believed on Him, was told by YAHUSHUA, "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43, KJV)
We know that Prophecy did not cease with Ellen G. White and Seventh-Day Adventists believe in Ellen G. White as the only prophet for today, though she is dead and what she prophesied did not come to pass.
We believe in Keeping the true Sabbath, for it is the 4th commandment, but we don't believe it takes the place of the saving blood of YAHUSHUA (JESUS CHRIST).
