Peter’s letters offer triumphant hope and grace to set you free—strengthening your faith and empowering your heart to soar. No matter what may be passing through in your life today, power from on high will help you overcome. Let Peter’s letters show you the way to love unending! John always points us back to the most important virtue of all: God’s love. He teaches us that nothing can defeat the love of God and that only perfect love has the power to cast out fear from our hearts. The truth of John’s letters is a tapestry of love, woven into our lives as we yield to God. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to carry this message of love into all the world. In only twenty-five verses Jude gives us a message that is desperately needed in this hour. We must beware of teachings that are false and harmful. Keeping ourselves in the love of God and holding fast to Christ alone will ensure a bright future. Jude points us to the God of glory who will strengthen us in all things to remain faithful in days of increasing darkness.
About the Author
DR. BRIAN SIMMONS is the lead translator of The Passion Translation®. The Passion Translation (TPT) is a heart-level translation that uses Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts to express God's fiery heart of love to this generation, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God's Word. The hope for TPT is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible and to reveal the deep mysteries of the Scriptures in the love language of God, the language of the heart. Brian is currently translating the Old Testament. After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971, Brian and his wife, Candice, answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to unreached peoples. Taking their three children to the tropical rain forest of Central America, they planted churches for many years with the Paya-Kuna people group. Dr. Simmons established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed, and, having been trained in linguistics and Bible translation principles, assisted with the translation of the Paya-Kuna New Testament. After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ. He and his wife planted numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in New England (U.S.). They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel full time as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world. Brian is the author of numerous books, Bible studies, and devotionals that help readers encounter God's heart and experience a deeper revelation of God as our Bridegroom King, including Throne Room Prayer, The Sacred Journey, Prayers on Fire, The Divine Romance, and The Vision. Brian and Candice have been married since 1971 and have three children as well as precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
