Those Who are Wise Will Shine! Theology, Redemption, Christian


Published on

Understanding the Work of God in Your Redemption. Written for those who desire to know more about how the Lord is constantly working behind the scenes to provide redemption for all people. The book follows the thread of redemption found in the Old Testament starting with Adam and aptly illustrates how God was constantly at work to make sure His message of hope to the world was not lost in the syncretism of pagan society. This thread ends at Christ Who is the true redeemer for all of mankind. His work is not finished and you can be a part of it as well, if you will simply surrender your heart and life into the loving arms of Christ!

  8. 8. Believe—Obey—Reflect!<br /> This book seeks to take the reader back to the basics of Redemption and Sanctification though the unfolding of the "Redemptive Thread" that links the blood lineage of our ancient forefathers to the rise of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. It ends with the joyous events still to come at His Second Advent. From creation to the cross, redemption and sanctification are certainly defined as two of the zealous desires of the Lord. The overall and central theme of the Holy Scripture is redemption. Humanity is fallen, separated from God, and in dire need of reconciliation. The Lord’s perfect gift of redemption reconciles the breach. His work in us is what follows. Immediately He begins that work, and it will never be complete until we see Him face-to-face!! He calls us to be holy and set apart for His service. Never underestimate the value He has placed on you as a vessel, chosen with purpose, to be His emissary shining His light into this dark world. It is God’s foundational will for each of us to emanate the fragrance of Christ in all He calls us to be. <br />
  9. 9. Radiate the Presence of God!<br /> Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.<br />2 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV) <br /> Today, Christians in most places are still in need of the milk of the word. They lead a very shallow and powerless Christian life. It is one of the reasons the church is so lifeless in many places. It is not enough to know of the elementary principles of Christianity, we must also understand their meaning in terms of God's continual work in us. We must take them to heart. This volume seeks to lay a foundation of trusting God by understanding how God worked in the lives of past saints to make sure His message of redemption went unhindered so it could be ours today. Millions in the past millennia have gone beyond the superficial and with God's help, stood firmly and boldly on His side! <br />
