August 10, 2020
This newsletter reports news from and additions to www.characterofgod.org since the last newsletter (Apr. 2020). Aside from additions to the site listed herein, I am always making improvements to pages to make this website a valuable resource and hub of information about the character of God, the people who are foremost in promoting it and more.
New Material Added
Pages added to the site since the last newsletter are all related to the large study I recently completed on the Cleansing of the Sanctuary. Five new pages were added:
They are parts 19 – 23, as indicated, of the 23-part study which takes a detailed look at the sanctuary as mentioned by Daniel:
“And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” (Dan 8:14)
It asks and answers the question of what sanctuary is heaven most concerned about cleansing. It is NOT about Jesus in a sanctuary in heaven with a big eraser removing the evidence of the sins of our past. No, it is much more significant than that. The God of heaven wants to have a very close relationship with you and the cleansing of your soul temple is preparation for that.
The complete study is also now available in e-book form. At 171 pages it is not a short study but is organized so that you can get a quick overview and then focus on the parts of most interest. I chose the cover image, a cartoon, because it appears more than once in the e-book and is important to help us understand the process of cleansing the sanctuary and how having a wrong concept of the character of God will absolutely prevent the cleansing process.
The Character of God and the Gospel Glossary
Remember the glossary? I started it long ago by adding definitions/word studies of various Biblical terms that are misunderstood and contribute to a wrong understanding of the character of God and even the gospel itself. I got to about 20 words and then got way carried away looking at the sanctuary with the result described above.
I am planning to get back to building the glossary and add additional terms over the coming months. Here is the list of words that may eventually be included (words appearing as links are completed):
appease, atonement/reconciliation, blood, book/records, condemnation, conscience, curse, fear, fire, forgiveness, forsake, glory, hardened, hiding the face, imputed, intercession, jealous, judgment, justice, justification, kill/murder, law, love, mercy, name, perfection, propitiation, punishment, recompense, remission, righteousness, sacrifice, sanctification, sanctuary, second death, sin, smote, sword, vengeance, visit, worship, wrath/anger
Additions to Resources Page
In addition, a page was added with a new free (hard-copy) book offer:
Will America Survive? This is becoming a question in more and more minds as the debt rises, the crises mount and the divisions widen. From the back cover:
“History is littered with the wrecks of grand civilizations. Many believe America has reached, perhaps surpassed, the zenith of her greatness – that she is destined to become a second-rate world power.
Millions more believe American is on the brink of economic and moral ruin, and may lead the world into nuclear Armageddon, attempting to hold her position of power and prestige.
Here are fascinating predictions about America, and surprising conclusions about what the future may hold.
Note that this book has been published under a variety of other titles. Originally titled The Great Controversy, it has also been titled America in Prophecy. As I have a limited supply, I am asking (at least for now) that if you already have a copy please leave this limited supply for those who most need it – residents of the U.S.A. who do not already have the book.
Will America Survive? is available here. This book is not so much about the character of God but it is very important considering the time and circumstances we find ourselves in. It gives the historical background that helps to make sense of events in the world and especially in the United States at present.
Interview with Marilyn Campbell
For some time I have thought of interviewing some of the contributors to my website. Marilyn Marshall (author of Light on the Dark Side of God) beat me to it and she proposed to interview me. here is the resulting 29-minute interview which can also be viewed on the about me page of my site.

My Other Website/Newsletter
For some other good spiritual material, please take a look at my other website https://www.jesus-resurrection.info/ where I especially share information about a different understanding of the timing of Jesus’ resurrection as well as many other items of interest (well over 600 pages) There is also a quarterly newsletter available there highlighting current events that point to a soon Second Coming.
Please get back to me, Ray Foucher, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback from this newsletter and …
Please share this information and website with others.
Is your sanctuary being cleansed for a habitation of God?
