King Solomon wrote, “Of making many books there is no end” (Ecclesiastes 12:12). But of all the countless books that have been written, is there any that reliably answers the most fundamental and important questions of life? Why do we exist? What is our nature? Is there a God, and if so, what is God like? What does God expect of us? Can we know the true God? Does God love us? Is there a path that can put an end to violence, unnecessary suffering and sorrow? What happens when we die? Is there a way to eternal life, and if so, what is it?
Believe it or not, there is such a book, a book that has the answers to these questions, and other questions vital to the life of every human. That book is called the Bible. The Bible is unlike any other, and has no equal, because it is God’s revelation to mankind of knowledge that can be found in no other source.
Do you know what the Bible says? Have you read it? Have you studied the Bible diligently to learn what God wants you to know? Why study the Bible? In this article you will find answers to this question of vital importance to every human being.
How can nations, peoples, individuals be reconciled and learn to live together in peace? How can a corrupt and evil world be reconciled to God? These things can be done, and they will be done. The Bible tells us how.
Moreover, the Feast of Atonement, one of the seven annual festivals of God commanded in Scripture, focuses on the theme of reconciliation, and Scripture reveals a great deal of information concerning how God is going to bring reconciliation and peace to the earth, worldwide.
In this message Rod Reynolds discusses how Mankind will be reconciled to God.
Almost any worthwhile endeavor will involve failures, obstacles, setbacks, and problems of various kinds. Endurance doesn’t mean we’ll never stumble; doesn’t mean we’ll never fail or never sin. It does mean that despite our failures and setbacks, obstacles and problems we’ll keep striving to fulfill God’s will in our lives. We won’t give up – we won’t quit – we won’t turn away from God’s path.
Learn what the Bible says about enduring in the true faith, and how God provides encouragement and the help necessary to succeed to those who diligently seek him.
Scripture instructs us to love the truth (Zechariah 8:19). We are warned that we are subject to being deceived if we do not “receive the love of the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Further, we’re told that God hates lying, and hates lies (Proverbs 6:17, 19). The punishment of eternal death awaits those who persist in lying and will not repent (Revelation 21:8). In this message are discussed additional points related to the subject, “love the truth.”
Can one become a party to the New Covenant merely by “confessing the name of Christ?” Does one have to be a member of this or that particular church organization or body to be party to the New Covenant? Is the Covenant individual or collective? How long is the Covenant to remain effective? Once entered into, can it be broken? These questions must be answered if we are to know where we stand before God and with relation to His Covenant.
