Welcome to "Behold Your God" Ministry

Behold Your God Ministry is a ministry dedicated to following the example of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in all areas of life experience. Jesus didn’t use force, violence or any form of compelling power to achieve His goals and neither will His true followers. Instead He used the power of love for He Himself is love. He was always kind and courteous, even to those who hated Him. He is the Pattern for us at Behold Your God Ministry and we believe His example gives us a picture of what the Father is like.

STATEMENT OF BELIEF

Rebirth.

The basis of this is the rebirth experience as Jesus said, you must be born again. John 3. Without this experience into spiritual regeneration, there can be no lasting advance in coming closer to God.

Reformation.

This is followed by a work of reformation, which is growth in the new spiritual life, changes in the thinking and the use we make of our bodies. There will be changes in the ideas, habits and practises which has a lot to do with the mind. There will be changes in the way we treat our bodies as they come more under the control of enlightened reason. This is a continuously evolving work.

Ministry.

As our own lives come more and more under the control of God’s will then we will naturally want to help others to a better life as we ourselves have been helped.

All People Have Common Origin.

All people have a common origin and are our brothers and sisters and should be treated with love, care and respect. Jesus taught this when He gave the story of the good Samaritan. We are open to working for anyone, anywhere, provided we have the resources and skills necessary.

“From age to age the Lord has been seeking to awaken in the souls of men a sense of their divine brotherhood. Be co-workers with Him. While distrust and alienation are pervading the world, Christ's disciples are to reveal the spirit that reigns in heaven. Speak as He would speak, act as He would act. Constantly reveal the sweetness of His character. Reveal that wealth of love which underlies all His teachings and all His dealings with men.” Ministry of Healing, by Ellen White, page 159.

PRACTICAL TERMS

Teaching.

Behold Your God Ministry does teaching work world-wide in gospel themes, particularly in revealing God’s character in the life. This is the most important theme and is the centre from which the other work is done.

We are interested in distributing books and literature which complement this work. Translation is another field of interest, as a way of helping more people. Books are translated into local languages.

Preventative Health.

Preventative health is a major field of interest also, and restoration of health through co-operation with God and the use of diet, simple remedies, healthy lifestyle principles and abstaining from health destroying habits.

Agriculture.

For us agriculture plays a major part in this, and we used to run a large farm where we grew fruit, nuts and vegetables. We had most types of fruit that can be grown in that area and a large range of vegetables grown as naturally as possible.

We encourage people to settle in the country for a better lifestyle, raising of families, food security and learning lessons from the book of nature.

Care Work.

There is a real need for care work to be done for poorer and physically disadvantaged people in the world today and there are many places with little or no support for those who find themselves without help. When we find such situations in our travels there are always opportunities to show God’s care as resources allow.

We encourage brotherly love and kindness in all towards those in need as an expression of the love of Christ.

Summary.

The signs in the world point to the second coming of Jesus as being close and that world conditions will get worse, not better. Matthew 24. Before Jesus actually comes the Bible points to a message being given on God’s character of love and the people who truly give this message live out the principles. The glory or character of Jesus is seen in His people and it shines above the spiritual darkness that is in the world.

Isaiah 60:1-3, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”

The same picture is shown in Revelation 18:1, in the New Testament. “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.”

The great Christian writer Ellen G White in her wonderful book, Christ’s Object Lessons, page 415, comments on this very passage in Isaiah 60, in this way. 

“"Behold," says the Scripture, "the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people; but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee." Isaiah 60:2.

It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character. It has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. At this time a message from God is to be proclaimed, a message illuminating in its influence and saving in its power. His character is to be made known. Into the darkness of the world is to be shed the light of His glory, the light of His goodness, mercy, and truth.

This is the work outlined by the prophet Isaiah in the words, "O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him." Isaiah 40:9, 10.

Those who wait for the Bridegroom's coming are to say to the people, "Behold your God." The last rays of merciful light, the last message of mercy to be given to the world, is a revelation of His character of love. The children of God are to manifest His glory. In their own life and character they are to reveal what the grace of God has done for them.”

So BEHOLD YOUR GOD and by rebirth, reformation and ministry, become ready for Jesus yourself and help others to find the way.
