Nicolai Millen, translated by Zbigniew Jankiewicz

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

Could there be a better and more challenging sermon than preaching of personal life experiences? This was done by brother Nicolai Milen – he spoke about his own journey to become an Adventist.

In the past Nicolai spoke about his personal road to the Adventist Church and the church beliefs and principles – find it here.....

Nicolai said - recently a friend and I were looking for something on Wikipedia, and we found a report to the UN, which stated that there are 38,000 churches and Christian denominations.

Two thousand years ago Jesus founded one church. The day of the Pentecost (read Acts chapter 2) - is the birthday of the Christian church.

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism.” Ephesians 4:4-5.

When I was 23 years old, I was searching for answers regarding life and I found them in the Scripture:

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all. For God will bring every work into judgement, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14.

“He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4.

We teach the “Bible and only the Bible", but why than do we draw attention to E.G. White? We accept what the Bible teaches, but her writings are gifts that help us understand the Scriptures.

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” John 16:12-13.

Ellen G. White in her books shows us the future based on the past.

So why have I become a Christian and an Adventist?

I was convinced that it is important to keep the commandments and have knowledge of the spirit of prophecy, which leads to the knowledge of Jesus.
