The book is based on God principles as being a parent. We have our own insights on how to raise our children. For instance, in the way our parents raised us. God is not with man-made philosophy or ideals. He is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, must worship Him in Spirit and Truth. John 4:24. So in raising our children we must do it in the values and upbringing of the Lord. He will guide you into all truth. There are so many aspects and revenues in the way of parenting that we miss out on the big picture. Which is seeing the true aspect of nurturing and loving our kids the way our heavenly father loves us as His dear children. He created us and knows everything we encounter in life and how to resolve every issue. So why shouldn't He know how to give us the ammunition we need in raising our children in the perspective of Him? Because with Him it is the right way to go. We can do everything in our little finite mind of what we feel is the right way to be a parent. But it always comes back to the maker, which is God. The ultimate parent of the whole universe. He will direct you in the way a parent should be. It is up to that individual to take heed of his word and direction for life as being a believer in Christ Jesus our Lord.
THE CHRISTIAN'S POWER BASE [VOLUME 1]: KNOWING THE HOLY SPIRIT is a book that introduces the Holy Spirit as the most important Gift of the Lord Jesus Christ to the world. Unfortunately, leaders of many denominations want their followers to know about the Holy Spirit, but not know Him personally, as the Enabler, the Comforter, and Helper (John 14: 26). The Lord refers to the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of Truth, who will lead us into all truth (John 16: 13). This emphasizes on the importance for every Christian to be acquainted with the Presence, and the Empowerment of the Holy Spirit in their lives to be able to fight victorious battles against the enemy - Satan - the unseen evil power and hater of truth. The book also teaches the real meaning of Repentance that pleases the Lord for the remission of our sins; and the reasons why millions of Christians are weak Spiritually, and fall victims to evil, weakedness, and many other vices that separate them from the Holy Spirit. Through such disconnect, millions become empty of the Holy Spirit, and are considered living dead, because they exist by their procreated spirits alone. Reasons: because of our ignorance and unbelief (see Matthew 12: 22-32; Matthew 12: 43-45). The Holy Spirit is therefore, presented to every Christian, but not to a selected few in the Universal Church of Christ, who call themselves [anointed] men of God, and shut their followers from the knowledge of the Holy Spirit.[See Acts 2: 37 - 40].
The central theme of the Bible's New Testament is God's love for you as an individual. This love was revealed through Christ's coming into the world and living among humankind, and through his dying on the cross and rising from the dead. By Christ's death, God offers you forgiveness for your sins, and by his resurrection, the promise of everlasting life. Christ died and rose again for the whole world, but for you to become a Christian is an individual matter. The only way to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is to accept his offer of forgiveness and everlasting life. The following Scriptures show God's part and yours. Read each verse and believe it, for it is the Word of God speaking to you. God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) GOD'S LOVE IS REVEALED God loves you and all people. He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete. He offers you not only an abundant life here and now, but also a life that is eternal-- his very own life. All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) HUMANS ARE SINFUL The saying, "Well, we are just human-- nobody is perfect," is biblically sound. When we acknowledge this truth, we can see our separation from God, for he is holy. SIN HAS A PENALTY The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) To continue in sin will result in spiritual death, which is separation from God forever. The alternative is to personally receive God's free gift, which is pardon for sin and provision of life everlasting. CHRIST PAID THE PENALTY God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) You may think you must lead a "good" life and do charitable acts before God will love you. This is not true. God loves you even in your sin. He sent Christ to die in your place and to pay the penalty for your sin so that you can be reconciled to him. SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT! By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) Grace means undeserved favor. God graciously offers to you what you could never do for yourself. All you need to do is receive it. Believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ died to provide deliverance from your sins and to give you eternal life. WE MUST RECEIVE CHRIST As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. (John 1:12) When you receive Christ-- when you accept what he has done for you-- you become a child of God. Picture, if you will, Jesus Christ standing at the door of your life. Invite him in. He is waiting to be received into your life. God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. (John 1:12) God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) RECEIVE CHRIST NOW You can invite Jesus Christ into your life right now by praying to God something like the following: Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and that I need your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that he rose from the dead. I now invite Jesus to come into my life as my Savior. Thank you for making me your child. Help me learn to please you in every part of my life. GOD'S PROMISES FROM HIS WORD Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) By your belief in Jesus as your Savior and because of God's grace, the following has taken place in your life: your sins were forgiven (Colossians 1:14); you became a child of God (John 1:12); you were made an heir to all of God's blessings (Romans 8:16-17); and you received everlasting life (1 John 5:12-13)! You became a Christian the moment you received Christ. Don't trust your feelings, for they will change. Take God at his Word and believe his promises. Review the above passages whenever doubts arise. You should be able to say with assurance, "I have received Christ. On the authority of God's Word, I have eternal life." MAY GOD GRANT YOU "ALL JOY AND PEACE IN BELIEVING." ROMANS 15:13
"The sole ground of a sinner's peace with God is 'the blood of Jesus.'" "The book contains a plain, full, clear, and straightforward statement of the Gospel method of salvation, as laid down in the Word of God; and has the merit of presenting the Gospel in all its freeness and freshness." "We never do good works until we do them because we are saved, not in order to be so. A lively sense of many sins forgiven will make us love much and show it practically."
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Scrooge knew he was dead? Of course he did. How could it be otherwise? Scrooge and he were partners for I don't know how many years. Scrooge was his sole executor, his sole administrator, his sole assign, his sole residuary legatee, his sole friend, and sole mourner. And even Scrooge was not so dreadfully cut up by the sad event, but that he was an excellent man of business on the very day of the funeral, and solemnised it with an undoubted bargain.
