Written by the author primarily for
his children and grandchildren, and
others, to let them know what he
consideres most important for
them to know from over 50 years
of Bible experience.
It is written against the realistic
background of the atmosphere in
which we live, so that the
advantage to you is an absence of
political correctness, a presence of
respect for the truth and
intellectual honesty.
Can we be confident enough to identify A SOUND FAITH?  The reaction is
often, "How can you tell which one is a sound faith?"  Yes, we can identify a
sound faith:  It is the "faith once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3)  You can
bank on it, if the faith delivered to you has been recently modified, say within the
last 1900 years, then it is not the same faith delivered to the saints in the first
century.  And yes, that A SOUND FAITH was recorded in the New Testament
during the First Century by the Apostles of Christ under the inspiration of the
Holy Spirit.  "all scripture is given by inspiration of God"  , the record tells us so
that God Himself working through the Spirit is the guarantee of the accuracy of
the sounds of this ONE SOUND FAITH.
Have there been and are there still efforts to substitute an unsound faith for the
ONE SOUND FAITH?  Yes, these efforts started also in the First Century, and
that is the reason that Jude wrote the book of Jude in order to contend for this
faith "once for all delivered".

"I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly
for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints."  (Jude 3)

Not only was Jude {actually this is the Apostle Judas, not Iscariot} contending
earnestly to protect the faith once for all delivered, but he solicited the efforts of
first century Christians, and through the Bible us, to also contend  earnestly for
the faith, earnestly because it is serious business.

But this faith once for all delivered and canonized in the New Testament writings
of the Apostles in 27 books is old, one might say, how can anything almost two
thousand years ago be that good!  When God does it through the Spirit and the
Apostles, He only needs to do it once.  You don't complain, do you, that the
Creation by God of heaven and earth is too old, or too outdated; nor should you
complain that the revelations of the New Testament were completed once for
allin the first century; although, believe, what must be new and we have a long
ways to go as Christians is the "illumination" on those long-existing revelations.
The illuminations of what has been in that New Testament {also whole Bible of
66 books} can seem very new to us, indeed if read under the guidance of the
Holy Spirit it becomes "alive and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged
sword":   it can have a newness every day.
10 most important things for you to know about the Bible for your own welfare:

1.  God:  He knows and desires the best for you life; and He demands a priority for
Himself, His kingdom, and a seeking after His righteousness over all else in life.
2.  Christ:  the proper learning of Christ according to the Bible is to hear Him and be
taught by Him.
3.  Holy Spirit:  He came to take the place of Jesus on earth after the Ascension
with the restraining work against sin, for righteousness, and a reminder of God's
inevitable judgment; and will do so until when withdrawn during the short period of
the Falling Away before the Second Coming.
4.  Bible:  the Bible {contrary to popular opinion and Satan, and certain
experts that would steal from you your God authorized "priesthood of
can be understood using the Authorized Semi-Public Interpretation
(ASI).  Also with help from the 5 volume set of  Study Guides, LEARN CHRIST
5.  Salvation:  God only choses a remnant from each church, denomination, and
generation of the many that try to call themselves by the name of Christ and God so
"beware lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the
living God".  (Hebrews xx:xx)
6.  The Falling Away:  Must come with a visual of the man of sin before the Second
Coming; is not a falling way from church as during this period church attendance
may go up, but is a falling away from God, Christ, and the Bible; is not a criticism of
youth as all under 20 years of age are safe if the Falling Away is like that of the
children of Israel in the wilderness.
7.  The Day of the LORD and Lord:  all inclusive phrase to describe when God
rectifies wrongs and rewards rights, sometimes with immediate disasters but more
often with the final great final disaster that shakes heaven and earth
{blood, fire,
and vapor of smoke with diminished light from sun, moon, and stars}
; Christ
comes again with a gathering of sheep and goats; and the kingdom of Christ is
delivered to God with a new heaven and earth.
8.  Faith:  "faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the {real}  Word of God"; and
"faith is the substance of things
{legitimately according to the Bible} hoped for".
9.  Gospel:  Jesus died on the cross for our sins; was raised from the dead by God
with the same kind of power that both used in the beginning to make the universe;
and the Ascended Jesus now lives at the right hand of God to make intercession for
the sins of believers.
10.  Assembly:  the church assembly that you must be most concerned about is the
assembly of the Firstborn Jesus, written in heaven.
"Their sound has gone
out to all the earth, and
their words to the ends
of the world."  (Psalm
19:4 and Romans 10:18)
