Welcome to Bright Beams Mission! We would love to tell you a little about this website. Want to know more about us, personally? Check out our story!
This website is a collection of precious gems of truth revealed to us by the Holy Spirit through deep study of God’s Word and the writings of Sister White. Our mission is to share these discoveries with others, especially our fellow Seventh-day Adventists in the hope of helping us all to wake from slumber. We seek the Messiah‘s eye salve of the Holy Spirit, pure gold of faith, and white garment of righteousness. It is our deepest desire that we will all see our true condition and repent before Jehoshua spews us from His mouth (Revelation 3:15-18). “Israel” means “overcomer with God” and Jehoshua promised to make us true overcomers like Himself, so that we may sit with Him in His throne (Revelation 3:21). We want our people (and we include ourselves) to be “zealous, therefore, and repent”! This is our deepest desire for God’s remnant people.
Our primary topics are church organization, the 1888 message (particularly faith in God‘s word), practical godliness (especially prayer) and, of course, calls to both personal and corporate repentance and revival. We also like to post about health and other reforms.
Now unto Him that is able to guard you from stumbling, and to set you before the presence of His glory without blemish in exceeding joy, to the only God our Saviour, through Jehoshua the Messiah our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and power, before all time, and now, and for evermore. Amen.
— Jude 1:24-25 (RV)
Why Call It “Bright Beams Mission”?
This name comes from the marginal reading of Habakkuk 3:4 in the KJV. It normally reads thus:
And His brightness was as the light; He had horns coming out of His hand: and there was the hiding of His power.
But with the marginal translations, it looks like this:
And His brightness was as the light; He had bright beams coming out of His side: and there was the hiding of His power.
Ricky has a strong love for the Book of Habakkuk, and this is his favorite verse from it.
We also chose to use “mission” instead of the usual “ministry” because we don’t want to be just another independent ministry. This is a place for us to share what we learn in our studies, but we don’t see it as a way for us to work independently from the body. That’s why you won’t see, for example, us traveling around the country, preaching to the choir. We may share various studies and insights, but our focus is on our people reorganizing so that we can be a united army, all proclaiming the same message of love and warning to a dying world. Hence, much of what you find here will be about repentance, revival, discipline, and organization, as well as the restoration of the ways of God that have largely been forgotten (such as His calendar).
