This is to introduce myself as the author of the work here, these series of papers, most of which are based on the the truth written in the Holy Bible. The Bible is our service manual for life itself, so it in itself should be everyone's guiding light. There will be sceptics out there who will say; 'there is no God', to you dear friends I will ask to just bear with me and to read just one paper, that paper is the one on Easter, it may leave you with more than you bargained for, more questions than answers.
There are certain differing accounts which my wife and I have come accross in our time which say; "Our belief is the one to follow", I must reply and say to this that there is but one Bible and only one God; He is the one to follow. There is only one way to salvation, through Jesus Christ and no other.
"I am the life and the resurrection; no one comes to the Father but by Me".
"Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life; and they are they which testify of Me."
"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
"For precept must be on precept, precept on precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little."
It is a strange phenomenon indeed, the fact that most people will go along with certain things in this world, whether they have been told it, or seen it on the tv etc, it will be believed with no need for any reference to the matter or the event at all. If you are told something from history then it should be backed up with a history lesson, with all the facts and figures to the event in question. In nearly all cases, no one would be alive now to have witnessed the event, that is where the history book comes into play. The Bible is such a history book, events that happened thousands of years ago are recorded for all to check on, if only you would believe in what you have read. The Bible is His-story, so who today believes in the writings of the Bible? Alas, not many at all, maybe that is why the world is in such a mess at the moment, wars are imminent, so is starvation, if you are alarmed at the state of things now then you have not read the Bible, it is all in there, no punches pulled.
Some tend to miss out certain words in the Bible, these missed out words or parts of scripture are usually the ones that will conflict with their particular beliefs, this is not only confusing, but very detrimental to their salvation. The words of Jesus come into play for this situation; the book of Revelation 22:18-20 says: "For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are witten in this book. He which testifies these things says: Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus."
I do hope that you enjoy these writings, feel free to check on everything written here, if you have questions then remember that it is all from the Word of God, without it we are nothing. Another thing to be sure of is; Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever". He never changes, nor ever will. God is love and always will be love, His promises are sure.
