Overview

APPARENTLY, THIS DISPENSATION OF GRACE IS FAST APPROACHING ITS END. WE ARE DRIFTING FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY FROM GOD’S TRUTH WHICH IS REVEALED IN HIS HOLY WORD. IN OUR OWN COUNTRY CHRISTIANS ARE ON A GOVERNMENT WATCH LIST AND ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST FOR THEIR BELIEFS. OUR HOLY BIBLE (KJV) IS BEING DILUTED AND PRINTED IN MANY (SO CALLED) MORE ACCURATE TRANSLATIONS. MANY PREACHERS HAVE FALLEN INTO SATAN’S TRAP OF SEEKING LARGE NUMBERS RATHER THAN PREACHING THE ENTIRE WORD OF GOD. AS A RESULT, I AM AFRAID THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE A HEAD KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST (LOST), BUT NOT A HEART KNOWLEDGE (SAVED). MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY ARE SATISFIED IN KNOWING THEY ARE SAVED AND ARE GOING ABOUT THEIR SELF-SERVING BUSINESS WITH VERY LITTLE DESIRE TO REALLY SERVE GOD OUT OF PURE LOVE FOR HIM. THIS BOOK SELECTS SIX TOPICS OF SCRIPTURE WHICH I BELIEVE WILL ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO READ IT TO SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES FOR ASSURANCE OF THEIR SALVATION AND WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM HIS CHURCH, THE BODY OF BELIEVERS. THIS BOOK SELECTS SIX TOPICS OF SCRIPTURE WHICH I BELIEVE WILL ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO READ IT TO SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES FOR ASSURANCE OF THEIR SALVATION AND WHAT GOD EXPECTS FROM HIS CHURCH, THE BODY OF BELIEVERS. I AM PERSONALLY CONVICTED OF MY OWN SHORT COMINGS.
