Coming To Jesus: One Man's Search for Truth and Life Purpose

Who am I? Why do I exist? What's the purpose of life? What happens when I die? Is there a God? If there's a God, who is He? Does He care about me? At age 14, Britt Gillette found himself alone in a hospital late at night struggling with the universal questions of life. You've probably asked yourself these same questions, and maybe you've found the answers. But for Britt, these were new questions, and he didn't like it at all that he didn't have the answers. So he set out on a personal quest to find the truth. Along the way, he examined the claims of every religion, philosopher, political leader, psychic, and mystic he could find, and what he discovered was nothing short of astounding. What he found changed his life forever, and maybe it can change yours too.

Revelation Unveiled: Understanding the Heart of Jesus in the Imminent Day of the Lord

The book of Revelation should be of intense interest to today's Christian. It describes not only the persecution that originates from Satan, but also announces the day when God will intervene and cleanse the earth. This is definitely something to look forward to if we are right with him. Not so much for those living for themselves. Sadly, many commentaries on Revelation ignore the need to have a clean heart in order to survive what's coming. In this edition, we dig deep into the signs, the wonders, and the genuine Christian's role in the soon-to-be-fulfilled book of Revelation. We even go back to the prophets to help clarify what is the most important message to Christians today. About the Author Russell Stendal, a former hostage of Colombian rebels, is a lifelong missionary to that same group in the jungles of Colombia. He is an influential friend to military and government leaders in Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and the United States. Russell's ministry shares the gospel via twelve radio stations, hundreds of thousands of Bibles, books, and movies distributed through airplane parachute drops and numerous speaking engagements for groups of leaders, prisoners, and individuals. Russell goes wherever the Lord leads, whether it's to speak with a president or to go deep into the jungle to help an individual in trouble. He has witnessed thousands commit their lives to Christ.

The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus

Most people agree that Jesus was an amazing teacher and someone we could all learn from. At the same time, most of us have spent little time actually reading his story. The Daily Walk Bible NLT: 31 Days with Jesus is an open invitation to do just that. In just one month you will read through all four gospels, seeing Jesus and gaining insight into his purpose and message for us.

This special eBook, taken from the pages of The Daily Walk Bible, includes a simple reading plan to help you through. Each day includes an Overview that provides a bird's-eye view of that day's reading, an inspirational and practical My Daily Walk devotion, and an Insight that offers an interesting fact about the passage. Every seventh day you will be invited to pause and reflect--looking back over what you have read, looking forward to what is coming, and most importantly looking up to God.

It's that simple, but be warned, Jesus has been changing lives for two thousand years--31 days and yours won't be the same either.

Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy (Prophecies & Patterns Book 2)

Did the Bible really predict the coming of the Messiah before it happened? To answer that question William Struse takes you on a Biblical adventure in search of the promised Messiah. Of all the prophetic texts in the Bible, and by some counts there are over 2000, there is only one prophecy which gives a specific datable timeline for the coming of the Messiah. That prophecy found in the 9th chapter of the book of Daniel is commonly called Daniel's 70 Weeks.

Did you know?

1.The prophecy of 70 Weeks gives the date for the birth the Messiah.

2.The prophecy also tells of the Messiah's death and his resurrection.

3.The prophecy warns of the destruction of Jerusalem and its desolation.

4.The prophecy confirms the "covenant and mercy" promised to Abraham and his descendants, the Jewish people.

In a world where some question the Jewish people's ancestral rights to the land of Israel, the prophecy of 70 Weeks proves mathematically that indeed YHWH's oath which he swore with Abraham and his "seed" is in fact true, literal, and eternal.

Did you know?

1.That the "covenant and mercy" mentioned in Daniel 9:4 refers to the oath YHWH swore with Abraham and his "seed" in Genesis 22.

2.That the word swore in Genesis 22 comes from the Hebrew shaba and is the very root for the Hebrew word shabuwa (weeks) as in Daniel's 70 Weeks (Shabuwa).

3.That this covenant made with Abraham is the first recorded covenant YHWH swore (shaba) with any man in the Bible.

4.That this oath of sevens is an underlying covenantal theme of the entire Biblical record.

As you explore the Biblical record in this book, you'll see why the prophecy of 70 Weeks is the keystone between the Old and New Testaments (Covenants). Quite literally, this prophecy bridges the Old Testament Torah and Prophets, which speak of a coming Messiah, with the New Testament Apostles who record the fulfillment of those very prophecies in the person of a first century Jewish man named Yeshua.

So if you've ever wondered whether the Bible's prophecies which speak of a coming Messiah are true, by the time you have finished Daniel's 70 Weeks: The Keystone of Bible Prophecy you'll have an answer to that question and you will know why the Bible is truly different than any other religious text recorded by man.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs

Make your daily devotional reading simple and organized.

The New Testament gives you an up-close-and-personal glimpse at the life of Jesus.

The Gospels present a testimony of the miracle of His birth, the impact of His life, and the power of His death & resurrection.

The succeeding New Testament books offer a deeper reflection of Jesus Christ and the ministry we, as His followers, are called to.

The book of Proverbs is known as the "Book of Wisdom" because it provides instructions on how to live happily, successfully, and victoriously. It is jam-packed with tips, advice, and insight that if applied can change your relationships, attitudes, and life.

The Plan is Simple.

There are 89 chapters in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. By reading one chapter of the Gospels each day, and then two chapters of the rest of the New Testament (Acts - Revelation) for a total of three chapters per day, you will go through the New Testament in just 89 Days.

This plan is called "The cell rule of Optina." The monks of the Optina Monastery enter into a daily Scripture discipline: one chapter from the Gospels and two chapters from the rest of the New Testament, reading daily in order beginning with the book of Acts and ending with the last chapter of Revelation.

By following this plan, Matthew 1 and Acts 1-2 are on the first day, and then the last gospel, John 21, is read on the very same day as Revelation 21-22.

I have added a slight twist by including a section from the book of Proverbs with each day's reading.

Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs - is simple, organized, and easy to use. Start today, and you will begin to develop a good habit that will help you in your spiritual walk with Christ.

Jehovah: in the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures

Robert Crompton here presents a detailed examination of the supposed "restoration" by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society (Jehovah's Witnesses) of the divine name, Jehovah, to the Greek Scriptures or New Testament without any textual evidence that the name was ever there in the first place. It includes a discussion of each of the 237 instances where this has been done.

HCSB: Navigating the Horizons in Bible Translations

In Genesis 3:1 the serpent asked the woman, "Did God really say, 'You can't eat from any tree in the garden'?" What has God really said? Before we can obey Him, we must know what He has said. The Psalmist prayed twice in his affliction, "Give me life through Your word" (Ps 119:25, 107). When Jesus was afflicted by the Devil in the wilderness (Mt 4:1-11), He defended Himself with the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17) - God's Word. But Christians must know what God has said if we are to find strength and healing from affliction and defense against the Devil. Bible translation is not a casual enterprise because it involves bringing the life-saving Word of God to people in their own language. And selecting a Bible translation is not on the order of picking out a sweater. It's more like picking a doctor - someone you can trust. This book is about how Bible translation is done. And it commends a particular translation - the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) - as a trustworthy guide to what God has really said.

Confidence in God in Times of Danger

Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Confidence in God in Times of Danger is a passionate explanation of God's workings in the Book of Esther. The author moves from Biblical insight to practical application in the lives of God's people today. When the times are turbulent and filled with all manner of possible dangers, the great God of the Bible is in control and can be trusted completely.

"We learn that the most casual events which take place in the affairs of the world are connected with God's plans respecting His people; and that the most trifling things are appointed and directed by Him to effect His purposes. It decides a question that philosophy has conversed for ages, and will never fathom; recording a number of events, the result of man's free will, yet evidently appointed of God and directed by His providence. From this book the believer may learn to place unbounded confidence in the care of his God in the utmost danger; and to look to the Lord of omnipotence for deliverance when there is no apparent means of escape."

Is the Holy Spirit Real?: Reconnecting With the Work of the Holy Spirit in the Bible and In Our Lives

Jesus has four Gospels about His life, and God the Father's work is on nearly every page, so why is it that we forget so much about the third Member of the Trinity: the Holy Spirit? Is it the fact that He seems to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time? Is it because He is so personal in nature that a generalized description is virtually impossible? Regardless, it's about time that we finally focus on who He is, what He's done, and how He contributed to our common salvation.

Arab Spring, Christian Winter: Islam Unleashed on the Church and the World (Free eBook Sampler)

"If you want to better understand how today's headlines might be fulfilling biblical prophecy, then read this book... This book will help ensure that your faith is built on Christ alone and the assurance of spending eternity with Him, not the sometimes-scary flow of history. You will also get a complete education on Islam and its possible role in the End Times."

Joel Richardson

New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized teacher

Arab Spring, Christian Winter will help you tie newspaper headlines to your scriptural knowledge of the Last Days. Ralph Stice draws a clear link between the Arab Spring and the rise of a worldwide power that appears to be ushering in the coming Antichrist.

This book will also show you what you need to watch for in tomorrow's news and guide you on how to fortify your faith for stormy days ahead. The Western Church has much to learn from Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Familiar Scripture passages are unfolding with new clarity to believers everywhere.

Learn:

oWhy the Arab Spring had to happen to fulfill scriptural prophecy

oHow the Arab Spring led to the unleashing of pure Islam

oWhich nation could be the crucial link between East and West and produce an Antichrist figure

oThe responses of Middle Eastern Christians to intense persecution and what we Western believers can learn from them

Fear not! He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). We will discover Jesus in a fresh way when we face true persecution. How will your faith withstand the great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled again (Matthew 24:21)? Brothers and sisters in Christ are facing this reality every day, right now.

End of this Age

The Lord told the prophet what to say, "Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the Lord. It is he who will build the temple of the Lord, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony." This was an important type of Christ. The crown was to be given to Joshua, the son of Zephaniah, as a memorial to the temple of the Lord. This was foundation for end times events. The temple will be rebuilt.

The Bible says that there will be wars, famines, earthquakes, persecution, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken. "The sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn," Matthew 24:30.

To learn that the long awaited Messiah was Jesus all along will cause some to weep when they see his scars in his hands, feet and side. It will be a glorious day for those looking for him. All those born-again will be there following Jesus on white horses. (That is all who knew they were born as sinners, believed Jesus took the punishment for those sins, and ask Him to forgive them.) Those will come from heaven with Jesus on their own horses.

God told Ezekiel that he was withdrawing his favor from his people. The reason was that the people had idols. Four judgments were given as to what the decision was, "A third of your people will die of the plague or perish by famine inside you; a third will fall by the sword outside your walls; and a third I will scatter to the winds and pursue with a drawn sword," Ezekiel 5:12. This happened in 70 A.D. The Jews stayed scattered until this past century.

Death is the name of the fourth rider, and Hades followed close behind him. Hades is hell. So those who have rejected Christ are the ones referred to here. As Hades follows closely behind death of the unsaved, heaven is waiting for those who accept Jesus. An interesting point is, Death and Hades have been personified here. But that is no problem since Jesus has authority over both.

Jesus said, "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door."

If you are looking for the Truth concerning the Book of Revelation and the Antichrist, you might want to Google Irenaeus, who sat at the feet of one of the most revered martyrs of the second-century Church, a man named Polycarp, who was Bishop of the local church at Smyrna. Polycarp was not only one of the Apostle John's most well-known disciples, he said, "Regarding the events which shall occur in the time of Antichrist is it shown that he, being an apostate and a robber, is anxious to be adored as God; and that, although a mere slave, he wishes himself to be proclaimed as a king. For he being endued with all the power of the devil, shall come, not as a righteous king, nor as a legitimate king, in subjection to God, but an impious, unjust, and lawless one."

One day after preaching in Herod's temple, Jesus left the temple area and walked away. His disciples came up to him and called his attention to the temple buildings. "Do you see all these things?" Jesus asked. "Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be thrown down."

This prophecy came true in 70 A.D. when the Romans burned the temple and melted the gold from between the temple stones. These were not little pebbles, but huge stones. The Siege of Jerusalem in the year 70 A.D was a decisive event in the first Jewish-Roman War. It was followed by the fall of Masada in 73 A.D. The Roman army, led by the future Emperor Titus, with Tiberius Julius Alexander as his second-in-command, besieged and conquered the city of Jerusalem, which had been occupied by its Jewish with-standers in 66 A.D.

Amos: Old Testament New European Christadelphian Commentary

A verse by verse exposition and commentary on the book of the prophet Amos, part of the New European Christadelphian commentary series.

A Commentary On the Letter from Paul to the Galatians

A commentary on the letter from the Apostle Paul to the Galatians, also known at the Book of Galatians found in the New Testament.

Commentary On Ephesians

Paul's Letter to the Ephesians amounts to a short course in theology. It has been hailed as "The Queen of the Epistles" because of its exalted and majestic teachings. Sound theology leads to spiritual stability, so that God's people would not be tossed here and there by every wind of doctrine.

Commentary On Colossians

Paul's letter to the Colossians weaves together high theology with holy living, and exhortations with warnings. Its main theme is the fullness of Christ, and the fullness that Christians have in him. Christ's person and work are complete, and Christians have benefited from this completeness. Any attempt to supplement or replace the person and work of Christ therefore undermines and devalues him, and compromises the Christian faith. This commentary confronts several controversial doctrines, including the incomprehensibility of God and the origin of sin and evil. Other features include a summary of systematic theology from the perspective of christology, discussions on true versus false philosophy, true versus false spirituality, what it means to see the Father by "looking at" Jesus, the priorities of Paul in life and prayer, and the true nature of the Great Commission.

Commentary On 1 & 2 Thessalonians

The two Pauline letters provide opportunities to cover a wide range of topics. They include the following: the doctrine of Scripture, the doctrine of election, the doctrine of the second coming of Christ, the resurrection of the dead, the "catching up" of believers, the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish temple, and the slaughter and dispersion of the Jews in AD 70, persecution and providence, the Great Commission, "seeker-hostile" ministry, the relation of metaphysics and ethics in apologetics, justice, revenge, and atonement, the sin of slander, the minister's right to financial support, the sin of idleness, and the correct policy toward idlers, cessationism and prophecy, and some observations on hermeneutics. In addition, an outstanding feature of this book is an extended exposition and argument on the matter of whether the Jews murdered Jesus.

Zephaniah: Old Testament New European Christadelphian Commentary

A verse by verse Christadelphian exposition of the book of the prophet Zephaniah, by Duncan Heaster. Part of the New European Bible Commentary series, based upon the New European Version of the Bible.

Commentary On Galatians

Paul writes to a church that has been infiltrated by false teachers, and provides a corrective on how a person is justified before God. Besides the fact that it is divine revelation, the letter's enduring relevance is ensured because it is a statement of the core of the gospel, because it defines the place of its teachings in relation to other biblical doctrines, and because it models the manner in which we are to defend the faith against objections and distortions.
