December Anchors of Truth Series Focuses on Righteousness by Faith

The popular Anchors of Truth series will return to 3ABN in December, this time with Frank Fournier, president of the Adventist-laymen’s Services and Industries (ASI) and Eden Valley Institute. His topic will focus on Righteousness by Faith in the context of the three angels’ messages found in Revelation 14.

 A Look Back

Seventh-day Adventists trace their beginnings to the teachings of a dynamic nineteenth century Baptist preacher named William Miller. His study of the book of Daniel led him to believe that something very special would happen in 1844—namely, that Christ would return to take His people to Heaven. History records that up to 100,000 Christians abandoned their fields and labors, waiting all day and into the night in the great expectation that the Lord Jesus would appear in the clouds of glory. However, when this did not happen, their grief was devastating. What had happened? How could they have been so wrong? Sadly, thousands of them abandoned their faith altogether, and October 22, 1844, became known as “The Great Disappointment.”

But the error was not in Miller’s calculation. The error was in the nature of the event that took place. Jesus had not failed them; they had simply failed to understand what actually happened that day. William Miller had assumed that the “cleansing of the sanctuary” mentioned in Daniel 8:14 represented the earth being purified at Christ’s Second Coming. What he did not understand was that, just as the earthly sanctuary in the wilderness must be cleansed, the same must go on in the Heavenly Sanctuary in preparation for the Great Judgment Day.

Our Turn to Decide

Seventh-day Adventists believe that since 1844, God has wanted to do a great work in our hearts—a work that will purify and prepare us for the outpouring of His Holy Spirit. When this is accomplished, the Latter Rain will fall and the earth will be enlightened with the glory of His character! However, many have never understood this. Instead of embracing Righteousness by Faith, they’ve focused instead on distinct doctrines, and have lost sight of the big picture.

Now it’s our turn to decide. Will we do as the last four generations have done? What will we do with the gift of God’s dear Son and His all-powerful righteousness?

Be sure to join us for this important Anchors of Truth series that will revolutionize the way you think about Righteousness by Faith. This series may well change your life!

    I'm looking for a picture of the Holy City in the Middle East the New Jerusalem. Do the Anchors of Truth series under Carlton Byrd have such a picture or does he have a program called In Search of Truth.

      Hi Teresa. Most of our images are licensed from third parties, so even if we had a suitable image, we would probably not be permitted to share it due to licensing restrictions. I'd recommend doing a Google image search for that image if you need it for your personal use; or use a stock image source such as if you need an image that will be used commercially or in a product for sale.

    Question on Sabbath Anchors of Truth? Will the speaker be speaking at 9:30 & 11.00 CT?

    The next two topics were listed as One universal Issue & The Loud Cry. If Brother Frank is preaching both will they be repeated in the evening and what times for both. Thank you
    The regular schedule page does not list two. Thank you

      Sorry, we closed early on Thursday due to a winter storm, so I didn't see your question until afterward. Because of the storm, some of his messages had to be taped, instead of broadcast live. But I believe they should have aired at the times indicated.

    Wow, Cool! I wish I could watch these but I'm in Manila, Philippines with a poor internet connection. Please post any transcripts or summaries of the sermons please. Even a few paragraphs would be better than nothing.

    So sorry I missed the earlier sessions. Will they be reposted at another time.

  5. Eunice Stenner

    I was lucky enough to see two of this series, get ready get ready and marred in our hands. I wish to purchase the series on both C.D. and D.V.D. please. I live in Australia.

    Frank Fournier's series on righteousness by faith was excellent. When will it be available for purchase? I have a friend who may be interested.
    Alternatively, when will you be repeating the series?
    God Bless.

      Hi Garland. It should be available by mid-January, 2014. I believe all of the Anchors series have been repeated at some time or another, but I don't know when that would be.
