THE PEACE OF GOD
All of true believers have some realization that Christ died for their sins and that they are saved, but they may still be afraid of God. Some have gone further and have peace with God by receiving the conciliation, and are reconciled to Him through the death of His Son for His enemies. Beyond that are those who enjoy justification as a result of His resurrection. But few, indeed, have entered into the peace of God, that tranquility which is His because He is guiding all to His predetermined goal, and uses evil as well as good in the course of His operations. Once we see that all is of God, sin as well as success, and that He is using all to bring about that perfect ultimate end, with not a single deviation from the preordained plan, we will be able to understand that He, at least, is at perfect peace, so far as the course of the universe and all in it are concerned. This is the peace of God. This I hope is ours. This will enable us to refrain from worry and to pray with thanksgiving. In the midst of the warring factions of this world it will guard our hearts like a garrison of soldiers. Even when our minds fluctuate and vacillate with the vagaries of life, this peace will rise loftier to every change.
A wonderful gift from God is His Word. With estimated total sales of over 5 billion copies, the Bible is widely considered to be the best-selling book of all time.
It sells approximately 100 million copies annually, and has been a major influence on literature and history, especially in the West.
The Bible has been translated into many languages. And it continues to be translated into new languages.
It has been said that you can prove anything from the Bible. Is this really true? There have been many opinions and ideas on what the Holy Scriptures truly teach. All Christian denominations and groups have their own list of beliefs and all say their teaching comes from the Bible but almost all have different opinions on what the Bible says?
Most people have a desire to understand God and His plan, purpose, power, and workings. Without a knowledge of God’s plan, purpose, power, and workings, many will be very frustrated trying to understand the Bible. To often people rely on the interpretations and explanations of pastors and men of theology for understanding instead of doing their own diligent research. If we search for an understanding of the purpose of the ages, we will be pleasantly surprised to find answers to all of our questions. The Holy Scriptures never contradict each other.
Things to consider about the Bible and its teaching:
Is the Bible holy?
Does the Bible teach of an ever burning hell fire for evil doers?
Does a person have an immortal soul?
Does God want to save all men but can't?
Did Jesus fail when He said He was the saviour of the world?
Did God lose the vast majority of the human race?
God created good and not evil. True?
Salvation a one shot deal and not a process. True?
Is the lake of fire and hell the same thing?
If you answered yes to some or all of these questions it may be worthwhile to read some of the articles on this web site to see if you agree or disagree.
