WELCOME HERE FRIENDS!   It is hoped you will find this site to be very helpful, and will see the INDEX for many papers on Bible truths to help. 
All questions and comments are welcome and held confidential  (send e-mail: aninterface@hotmail.com).    This web site is non-sectarian ministry to encourage the reading of God's Word, and for serious seeking after truth.  It values God's work of revival in the early 1800's, with which it is associated, and urges readers to learn about it (see Church Truth page and Feature pages above). It is always the desire and hope here to obey and honor our Lord, and encourage and seek the spiritual welfare of all people.  WE NEED TO SERVE AS  "ONE BODY" IN  CHRIST in the world (note 1 Cor. 12:25)!   No thought here is to condemn personal faith,  for each  one must look to God in their personal life,  but  this speaks to the ESSENCE of biblical  Christianity,  which is  BIBLE  ONLY  ---apart from man's reasonings and innovations;  and   addresses   Redemption Way;  Church Truth;  Spiritual Life;  and Bible overview  to maintain the balance in the faith.  It is what God has intended for  His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God" as God enjoins us,  and we need to encourage all souls to embrace all these things.

**********************************************************************
Everyone may participate in the ministry of this web site, by telling their friends to visit here.  We hope all will find some ministry to help, and perhaps a nice challenge for their faith. Surely "the time is short", as God says, and surely we need to also "be about (our) Father's business".  See the message and testimony at Site Manager Page.  The writer does not have all answers, but will be glad to share what has been learned over many years.  Questions and contrary views in a helpful way are appreciated.
NOTE:   Papers and comments here are changed periodically, and are personal convictions.  Serious seekers after CHURCH  testimony might well see Christian Assembly pages: F4 & F5 here.    There are many pages for help and encouragement --- SEE INDEX ABOVE FOR A BIBLE STUDY --F8.   The manager may not have answers for all questions, but is glad to share what he has and be of some help. He is not perfect and revisions and updates seem needed at times to clarify thoughts, so one might note the revision date on any papers they wish to copy.  Any copies made should not be altered or taken out of context.  Any questions are welcome, and we can only share what we feel led to send forth for consideration --may God help us!

DOES THIS TRUTH DESCRIBE YOU?  

   "A true  and faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ,  will walk with Him in trust and  devotion;  and talk with Him daily, until 
that day when one can see Him and be with Him  forever, in the Father's house  in Heaven."

The Lord Jesus said:  "search the Scriptures;  for in them ye think ye have eternal life;  and they are that which testify  of Me" (John 5:39) --- note His further statements as a caution, and our hope.

         The Big Picture

THE CALLING OF GOD
The Essence Of John 1; John 3; John 14

Many souls have heard 'the calling of God', and have been moved thus to see and receive God’s “---so great salvation” as He calls it. It is the conversion of natural sinful man to a new life in Christ. This grace of God by the Holy Spirit indwelling one is called 'unmerited favor' when a soul is "quickened" ---meaning: awakened to God and made alive and aware of Him, and stirred to seek to know Him and receive Him. Note the chapters listed above.  

A religion seeker might see this God-consciousness as something in the soul of many 'beings' by the Creator-God and ponder it (which is the reason also some one might fight against it ---not wanting the Creator in their life); and truly is the reason that many claiming Atheism become so upset with Christianity ---being annoyed and troubled in conscience. Some souls do not regard this "quickening Spirit" and shrug Him away when He comes forth by testimonies ---or they only take a brief look at the Church universal as a religious organization with no real meaning in life. We might see that when one is moved to respond, and see the reasonable truth of salvation for Heaven one day in God’s beloved Son: the Lord Jesus Christ, and calls upon Him alone in real faith and trust, that the loving Father in Heaven responds with the indwelling and sealing by His "Holy Spirit" ---a 'new birth' (John 3). How wonderful and precious that is! This is reality of faith.

When Christ is made known and rejected, it becomes harder thereafter to revive the heart, for it gets cold and hardened, and Satan gets a firm hold on the rebellious one (note Rom. 1:28; 2 Cor.4: 3-4; Heb.6:4-6; etc.). Some men are 'apostates' who seek to imitate Christianity for gain, and lead souls into satanic bondage (note 2 Tim.3 and 2 Pet.2). Those who trifle with God and presume to know more than the Creator, are in grave danger (Job 33:14)! 

Certainly the enemy of our soul --Satan: the 'beguiler' will always seek to draw one away from the Lord, and learning of His Word; and cause one to look into religions instead of faith in Christ; so one might well see it is essential for the serious soul to appreciate truth, and be diligent to learn God’s way (note Jer. 29:13-15 and the Epistle 1 Jn. 5:10-12).  

The simple truth for mankind is that without the Lord Jesus in our life and heart ---not just an intellectual thing, there is NO salvation for our soul (see John 14:6), so one is urged to prayerfully begin reading the Gospel message in the Holy Bible (the Authorized KJV Bible is much recom-mended; and that to learn God's true meaning) while there is yet time. There is no promise for tomorrow, and "the time is short", our Creator states; so it is recommended that one meditate on Romans 8 in their Bible!       – RLD: RG28; 08/2012; add 04/2021.
