Synopsis: Those Who Are Wise Will Shine, is really the emanation of a life that lives within the favor of God. When we live within the confines of the "Joy of the Lord,"...we shine and others know it! There is no better way to shine for the Lord than to know with determined faith, who He really is and where He is taking you! Truly, the work He has done for us, the provisions He has made for our welfare, and our positional standing in Christ are nothing but astonishing! It is a sad fact that so many believers are not made aware of these awesome truths. However, before we can help teach them, we must have experienced and zealously lived them ourselves. To fully understand the implications of these truths we must first understand the nature of the Father as revealed in Scripture. True joy in the Lord must always begin with that. Knowing Him, His purpose, and His promises will allow us to experience the life He desires for all believers.
This volume seeks to take the readers back to the basics of Redemption and Sanctification by unveiling the Redemptive Thread that links the blood lineage of our forefathers to the rise of our Messiah, Jesus Christ and His second coming. Redemption and Sanctification define two of the zealous desires of the Lord. The overall central theme of the Holy Scripture is Redemption. Humanity is fallen and separated from God. The Lord's gift of Redemption reconciles the breach. Sanctification is what follows that. It is an immediate, yet ongoing process of the Lord's work, which will only be completed when we pass from here to eternity. It means to be holy and set apart for God's service. In short, it is God's foundational will. Do not pass that statement by.
Today, Christians in many places are in need of the milk of the word. They lead a very shallow and powerless Christian life. It is one of the reasons the church is so lifeless in many places. It is not enough to know of the elementary principles of Christianity, we must also know what they mean. This volume seeks to lay the foundations that have led millions in the past millennia to go beyond the superficial and stand firmly and boldly on the side of the Lord! A proper understanding of Redemption will only lead you to rejoice with "joy unspeakable" as you stand in unrestricted service to God. He has liberated us to fulfill our redemptive purpose. He truly has set us free!
Hebrews 13:9b teaches us, "For it is good that the heart be established by grace..." The word established comes from ??????? which means to be firm or secure, literally propped up, as in a stick holding up a tent. If our heart is truly established by the true teaching of Grace, which comes from the nature of the Father, then when we fall, we still stand. Rejoice in Him...For Redemption provides just that!
Those Who Are Wise Will Shine takes a deeper look at redemption from the perspective of following the lineage of Jesus. In doing this God's amazing work and purpose is brought to light as it directly relates to bringing redemption or salvation into the world. It is punctuated by the simple gospel message that it is Christ that God sent to relate to humanity on our level. Because He became like us, only He is truly able to represent us as our mediator.
The book starts with Adam and progresses from there tracing his bloodline all the way till it stops at Christ. Along the way, God's work is amazingly revealed in the lives and purposes of Cain and Abel, the fallen angels and the Nephilim; the lives of Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth; the demonic origins of the Tower of Babel and Nimrod. You will learn how God used the angels to scatter the people across the earth and divide the languages. You will be acquainted with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Joseph, Ephraim, and Manasseh; David, Solomon and the Kings who ruled the Divided Kingdoms. And lastly, the pre and post exile days of the Jewish people, and the birth of Jesus followed by His still future, second coming. Literally, the lives of those who were called out and accepted the call to be God's light in a dark world, are exposed, whether in weakness or strength. We see in their lives, the Lord constantly working in and through them and sometimes disciplining them for forgetting Him. Truly, it is an awesome journey!
God's desire has always been to bring salvation to the world. His creation, of which humanity is the crowning glory, is always in His sights. In this book we can learn what it really means to be a part of God's family and what it means to be responsible for bearing the holy nature of God before a lost world.
As a bearer of God's light, never forget Him and never forget your created purpose. "Those Who Are Wise Will Shine!" helps you to embrace the work of God in your redemption.
