"...contending for the Faith..." –
- Beloved, my whole concern was to write to you in regard to our common salvation. [But] I found it necessary and was impelled to write you and urgently appeal to and exhort [you] to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God]. Jude 1:3, AMP
This instruction by Jude is not just another suggestion or option. Jude is sounding the alarm that the believer must wake up to the spiritual battle that is taking place in Christian Churches around the world. Those four words are in direct opposition to many sermons which are preached today, sermons designed to make people feel good about themselves and to give the ‘hearers’ a false since of security, rather than encouraging them to grow in their Faith and to be fully pleasing to God as the author of the Letter to the Hebrews instructed. Christian Faith in Jesus Christ is a unique measure of Faith given to the new believer by the Holy Spirit of God, so that we can believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior.
Coaching Disciples for Leadership
Making a "Disciple of Jesus Christ" is not an option.
Becoming a Disciple requires Discipline.
Being a Disciple requires working closely with other believers.
The Life of a Disciple is a bright reflection of Jesus Christ.
>If you want to be a Victor over the trials of this life…
>If you want to bear the Fruit of the Spirit of God…
>If you are being told that Discipleship for the Believer is optional or not required…
>If you are having trouble understanding the Whole Truth…
>If you want to become an Ambassador for the kingdom of God…
>If you want to understand the difference between a Legalist and Loving the Law of God…
>If you want to understand the benefits of the 34+ Facets of the Holy Spirit…
>If you want to understand what "walking in the Spirit" means…
>If you want to "Experience the Journey of your Lifetime…
Then you need a Disciple's Life Coach!
NOTE: This is a SAMPLE CHAPTER from the book "Preparing for the Rapture"
This Investigation is not about the validity of the Rapture - But about who is going to be included, and who is not.
"Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord." 1Thess 4.17
The Rapture is a subject that has created many denominations, theories and much confusion. Because this still future event, that I believe is about to take place, the Church body of Christ needs to take a fresh look at what is Truth about this mystery.
The statement “The Rapture of the Church”, left without explanation can, and does leave much to our imagination. It is fodder for untold theories and stories of science-fiction. For the past two thousand years, since Jesus walked the earth, men have anticipated this mysterious event and prophecy that is contained in both the Old and New Testaments. Theories abound as to if, when and how this event will take place. In this book, we are going to attempt to untangle this mystery so that [the reader] can clearly prepare and anticipate this event with all certainty of being a part of that special group. We will be asking, and answering a number of questions such as:
• Is the Rapture really going to take place?
• What is the purpose of the Rapture?
• Who is going to be included in that group?
• What are the qualifications to be included in the Rapture?
