People and nations may be blessed by showing honor to God (1 Sam. 2: 30);  and such shall be judged one day on how they regarded Him (Matt. 25: 31-34);  however, blessings and mercies should not be viewed as salvation of the soul, and the GOSPELS  MUST BE REGARDED (note Matthew, Mark, Luke, John.)    Let us "earnestly contend for the faith"  (Jude 3)

It is about heaven, salvation, eternal life, blessing, man's course, judgments; the Lord's sacrifice, coming reign, kingdom, glory and purposes for man, etc. Some general subjects addressed are shown here, and readers might have others. Readers might also compare with ministry under Correspondence and Miscellany section.

Redemption – Gospel – RG concerns that primary hope of God's redemption for man, and about the way of salvation and eternal life.

SUMMARY: It seems so very important to maintain a balance in these things. Believers often become so occupied with one area that the others are neglected. It not only is personal loss, but harms the universal testimony. The monthly editions at the Bible Counsel web site show most of the CCC available papers on various subjects over time. One can always request commentary on Christianity or other biblical subject.

Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet,
And a light unto my path

[Psa. 119:105]
Some thoughts here on understandings and viewpoints, and letters on Christian life and some information on godliness and living for God.  See also CHRISTIAN COUNSEL COLLECTION listing below to find various papers on biblical issues.  E-mail: aninterface@hotmail.com

Very many thoughts and ideas and speculation, is often set forth by worldly man about the beginnings of mankind; but since our Creator is so far above us and beyond, we would do well (and urgently so) to see what He tells us in His immutable "Word Of Truth" --our Holy Bible, before we suddenly die. We also need to be "rightly dividing the Word of Truth" as God says. May honorable souls pause to study God's Word!

Man NEEDS to know we have a Creator-God, and not be speculating and imagining things about such as some 'big bang' theory and explosions in outer space, which supposedly formed this Earth with animated cells, insects and bugs which landed on planet-earth and migrated into small creatures and then humans; or other such imagined ideas of carnal man. That comes from the rebellious Atheists and the simple-minded folks (and is surely the working of the enemy: Satan, as our Creator tells us). Should one choose those stories over a sound message from our Creator calling His children home to Himself? Man truly NEEDS to see what our Creator is speaking to us. The Bible says:  "God speaketh once, yea twice, and man perceiveth it not" (note Numbers 23:19; Job 33:14-18; Jer. 9:23-24). How sad that man rejects God's Word!

Our one and only Creator-God, who is described as "the beginning and the ending" ( Rev.1:8) and 'Father of all man', gave us His faithful "Word of Truth" to know about creation, His intent for His "children" ---:the people He made;   and His expectations and His provision for His people on earth. He did not need more Angels and wanted children and something of His own nature, as He shows. Yet man when given freedom chose independence and rebelled as Genesis 2 & 3 shows us; which was all engineered by the enemy of our souls: Satan, as God tells us about this 'tempter' ---that being the "fallen Angel" allowed by God to try man to learn of their need for devotion to their Father in Heaven.  
We are now self-indulgent sinners by birth and need a Savior. If one rejects God's Word and is not "born again", that one will perish being on unholy ground and standing (and thus not acceptable in the Holy Place of Heaven; and will die one day and be cast away under severe judgment, so God says: "now is the day of salvation"!  This should strongly suggest a need to make the Lord Jesus our Savior and 'best friend' now and forever as God warns.  

The Creator-God is a Holy Spirit and a "consuming fire" ---manifested as a man by His Spirit in His "beloved Son": Jesus, the Christ, born in Bethlehem of Israel. Regardless of godless voices, we would do well to hear the loving voice of our "Father which art in Heaven" (Luke 11:2). The Bible tells us He loves us and created us to be His children for Him to enjoy, and since He is holy and cannot look upon sin (Heb.12:29), we need to be on Holy ground, which is only as IN CHRIST JESUS who purges us of sin by having paid the price on the cruel Cross (fulfilling as the typology of Israel's animal sacrifices of old). God says: "he that has the Son has life..."; which is that eternal life of John 3:16 and John 14:6; etc. 

Salvation is NOT about religion, but a relationship, and mankind can come to the Father or choose to be rebellious; but one needs to know we are warned, and "suddenly, in a moment" the true Church will be called up to Heaven (see Mark 13:36; 
1 Corinthians 15:52); then it will be too late for the speculators to escape the terrible judgment to fall on this world.
