---Struggling in pain. That is what Jacob did but holding on to Jesus.

---He did not want to give up on Jesus. And eventually, good for Him.

---Even though he suffered immense pain, he still kept clinging.

---It is for us today as well. Any human suffering severely can cling to Jesus.

---Why Jesus? He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. That is why.

---For John Wesley Perfection of Faith is to love, love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself.

---That is the command of Jesus, that is found also in Ellen White.

---What is the difference between a Reformer and Johannes Arminius, John Wesley and Ellen White?

---Answer: a Reformer is Salvation 1.1; Arminius is Salvation 2.1; John Wesley is Salvation 3.1; and Ellen White is Salvation 4.1. Why do people want to slip back to vintage Salvation models when the Holy Spirit has upgraded the more biblical view in line with His revelation?

---Why do people slip back to Reformed Theology when Ellen White is similar to Wesley but different because she includes the Investigative Judgment and phases of Atonement in the Sanctuary Theology of the Bible, nuances that the Holy Spirit has led our Pioneers and her to see in the Word of God.

---And then there are professors from Newbold College in England, like Jean-Claude Verrechia who also studied and graduated at an outside university like myself and others, but denies the reality of a sanctuary in heaven! How he can receive God’s tithe for denying the very church he serves, is beyond my understanding. Those who praise Verrechia like C. Vine who moved from Newbold to Andrews University, is also in this list of concern? What is Satan doing with our church in this late hour? Open apostacy?

---Stand in pain truthfully clinging to Jesus and His Word with Ellen White Salvation 4.1 instead of Verrechia (Cline?) Salvation 1.1 which is pure preterism.

---Lord, open our eyes to see beyond famous universities to the truth of Your Word. And cling like Jacob even in pain through the trial to Jesus and His Revelation.

---Why is countries where these people are, suffering from severe plaques, floods, disasters, leadership chaos and financial setbacks? Because the faithful remnant, instead of clinging to Jesus, let go to His truths. That is why.
