it was amazing
bookshelves: must-have-books
Recommended for: everyone....
Read in March, 1975

This book is what answered the questions that I had about why we were here, what was wrong with the world and where we were heading...

in other words, after reading this book I gave my life to Jesus Christ... March 1975.

The problem with the world is sin. God provided a solution, found only in Jesus Christ.

Donald Weaver John,
Jesus is real, and he is coming back. :)

Amen... we need to be aware of what's going on in the world, especially concerning Israel! Ezekiel 36ff

I have a major issue with what I call cut and paste or reformed theology... Using allegory or spiritualizing selected parts of the Bible for whatever reason is very, very wrong, it's twisting
scripture. Our hermeneutics must be consistent, logical and coherent and seek to understand what the author intended the message to say. Jesus said that ALL of scripture tells about Jesus... the prophetic aspect of God's Word is profound and amazing and is what drew me to Him. To ignore prophecy is as wrong as hating those people in Israel, who can't possibly be "true Jews"... because the church replaced them... or so the false teachers have said throughout history... WHAT YOU DO WITH ISRAEL IS IMPORTANT... God is not finished with Israel - See Romans 11. Jesus said that Jerusalem will be trodden down until the age of the Gentiles is fulfilled... I believe that we're coming to the end of that age and God has already started working with His chosen people... Prophecies like Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 36-39, and of course Daniel 9:24-27, Matt 24, Luke 21, Mark 13 and Revelation remain... ignoring those passages is like ignoring a road sign that says the bridge ahead is out...

Donald Weaver Hello John,
Another good book to read is titled Recommendation 666, check that one out.

John Don,

THANX for the link recommendation... just popped onto their webpage and read their "about us"... my mentor is a Talbot graduate, several friends went to Biola... friends with one of the profs there as well.

I was able to download it as a PDF... Good stuff... will read it carefully.

Do you ever watch Hal Lindsey's reports on the news? It's such a shame his martial record is so tarnished... many believers have turned their back on him because of that... I examine his material and validate it with scripture. That's where I found out about Isaiah 17, which seems like it's in work right now... we'll see...

Donald Weaver Hello John,
I like Hal Lindsey, I read his articles, watch the videos via his website.

message 6: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Jesus seems to be a little behind schedule.

“For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds. Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.“ (Matthew 16: 27, 28)
