"And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’"Revelation 2:8-11
"I came from the Father and have come into the world, and now I am leaving the world and going to the Father. ...I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."John 16:28-33
"In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you."John 16:23-27
Are we sure that the God we serve is the God described in Scripture?
Is rethinking Him biblically really necessary?
How do we do it?
How would it affect our views of Christ, the gospel, holiness, worship, evangelism, service, and revival?
Many in our day are tired and disillusioned because they have consistently hoped in the next new idea. It is just this kind of day that makes Christians stop running on their religious hamster-wheels and ask
"Why are we doing these programs?"
"Why doesn't God ever really seem to show up and effectively work in our churches?"
Hard questions often lead to right answers
This study is written with the conviction that our fundamental need in Western Christianity is to repent of our low and unworthy views of God, to return to the biblical descriptions of the true God, and to risk it all in order to live upon Who He is. Nothing in this study is new truth. The devotions and exercises in the workbook, and the intros, sermons, and interviews in the videos are meant only to help the reader to take the biblical descriptions of God seriously and to see how they form the foundation of Christian living.
24By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, 25choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.
