Genre: Bibles

Of all the sixty-six books that comprise our Bible, the last book is meant to thrill and exhilarate the believer like none other. A beautiful Christ is unveiled while a company of overcoming saints is seen rising into the fullness of Christ. The book of Revelation is exciting, powerful, and dynamic. But it must be more to us than merely an unveiling of events to come. Revelation must be an experience of encountering the living Christ. God is ready to unveil this book to those who are ready to receive it, eat it, and live fully in the splendor of Christ. The unveiling is more than a vision given to John, but is also meant to be an inward discovery, a delightful unveiling within you. This is not a drama of Satan’s worst, but a supernatural drama of God’s best, pouring through his beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Revelation carries one revelation alone: Christ unveiled in his people. To read this book with any other focus is to miss the entire center of its meaning. There are other truths waiting for you to discover, but only after centering our gaze on the Magnificent One. A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands. Revelation 1:3 TPT

Hebrews and James

Release Date: 2014-10-01
Genre: Bibles

Encounter the Heart of God! The book of Hebrews presents the magnificent Jesus on every page! The light of Christ brings truth out from the shadows and shines it brightly for all to see. Hebrews means those who crossed over. It is written for every believer today, for we have crossed over from darkness to light and from doubt to faith. What once was a symbol has now become substance, for all the pictures of the Old Testament have found their fulfillment in Him. Hebrews takes us into the Holy of Holies as we come to Him as priests, lovers, and worshippers. We will never be same again when we absorb the light of God that shines from every chapter. He is our magnificent High Priest, greater than any sacrifice offered or prophet of old. He perfects our faith until we rise with Him into the heavenly realm of priestly ministry. Hebrews warns us of turning back into ritual and religion and forgetting all the treasures of our faith. Seeing Christ stirs us to enter into the full rest alone as our perfection before the Father. We must learn from Him and draw closer to Him in order to understand the depth of this book, for Jesus is the language of God and the theme of Hebrews. The Holy Spirit speaks through the Holy Word of God; His life giving expression comes through each verse, and receiving the Word of God changes us. The Book of James is rich with life changing revelation, a feast to strengthen us and keep us on course. James gives practical truths about what it means to be declared righteous by God. He offers many clear insights on faith and on walking in the truth. We might view the book of James as the New Testament Proverbs, for much of its writings speak of heavenly wisdom from God that transforms us. The book of James gives us the understanding of the power of faith to produce good works. Faith works!

The book of Luke is a glorious gospel penned by one of the early followers of Jesus. It has been described as the loveliest book ever written giving us a very full picture of life and ministry of Jesus. Luke applied scrupulous accuracy to all he wrote, to ensure that what we read is factual. Being a physician, Luke learned early on the need to exhibit compassion and mercy toward others. This gospel is perhaps the most compassionate, love filled account of the life of Jesus. Luke provides us with rich details of Jesus love of children, the forsaken, and His ministry to women even though this was controversial in the culture of his day. Luke shares Jesus teachings on prayer, forgiveness, and our obligation to demonstrate mercy and grace in dealings with others. The book of Luke is still read today by the lovers of God because as the Mercy Gospel and we all need mercy. The Book of Acts, also written by Luke, takes up the story where the book of Luke leaves off. It provides us with the startling details of the birth, the church and the early years of expanding the kingdom of God on earth. It begins in the upper room with 120 disciples and explains the explosive outpouring of the Holy Spirit resulting in tongues, prophecy, miracles, salvation, and the birthing of countless churches. Acts provides us with the story of Paul s three missionary journeys, illustrating the spread of the gospel, addition of new believers, miraculous answers to prayer, signs and wonders and deliverance. God is working in power today through His yielded lovers. This inspired account of church history awakens our souls with transforming power and gives us courage to be witnesses for Christ wherever He sends us!
