Beginning with the destruction of Jerusalem and continuing through the persecutions of Christians in the Roman Empire, the apostasy of the Dark Ages, the shining light of the Reformation, and the worldwide religious awakening of the nineteenth century, this volume traces the conflict into the future, to the Second Coming of Jesus and the glories of the earth made new. In this concluding volume, the author powerfully points out the principles involved in the impending conflict and how each person can stand firmly for God and His truth.
Jesus is coming for a perfect Church and this perfection would occur due to the full knowledge of Jesus. This is why there has been a progressive revelation in the Church. The word of God to us is precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little.Many times, the Church has separated subsequent teachings from preceding ones, but now is the time to put the teachings in the Biblical view of Christ's plan for the New Testament till we come to the unity of the faith. This book is for the unity of the body of Christ and not to cause any division.2Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament;It is painful that with the amount of the knowledge of God and His word in this generation we still find ministers dwelling on the message and doctrine of the Old Testament. The Old Testament is known as the ministration of death (2Corinthians 3:7), while the New Testament is the ministration of the Spirit (2Corinthians 3:8). Why dwell on the death message, ignoring the one full of life?2Corinthians 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: Pardon my plainness of speech. It is because of the seriousness of the matter on ground. I want to pass across the truth as revealed and not as I have been taught or indoctrinated. It is time for the Church to be weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts, and to seek the full knowledge of Christ and His plan for the Church (Isaiah 28:9-13).A.W. Tozer wrote, ''As long as we know that our view of the truth is partial we can preserve the humbleness of mind appropriate to the circumstances; but let us once get the notion that our view is total and we become intellectually intolerant. Let us become convinced that ours is the only sensible view and our ability to learn dies instantly.''The Spirit of the Lord is the One to take away every veil blocking the eyes of our understanding, so I will ask you to follow the text of this book with sensitivity to the Holy Spirit in every minute detail. There are many Bible references which I would implore you to read, and if need be, go over them using different translations for a better understanding of the content.Christ has made us free; let us walk in that liberty!

What does the Bible say about women’s roles in the church? With pros and cons on either side of a heated, ongoing debate, no definitive conclusions have emerged. This book furnishes you with a clear and thorough presentation of the two primary views on women in ministry so you can better understand each one’s strengths, weaknesses, and complexities. Each view—egalitarian (equal ministry opportunity for both genders) and complementarian (ministry roles differentiated by gender)—is represented by two contributors. This revised edition of the book brings the exchange of ideas and perspectives into the traditional Counterpoints format. Each author states his or her case and is then critiqued by the other contributors. The fair-minded, interactive Counterpoints forum allows you to compare and contrast the two different positions, and to form your own opinion concerning the practical and often deeply personal issue of women in ministry. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.
