This newsletter reports news from and additions to www.characterofgod.org since the last newsletter (Nov. 2020). Aside from additions to the site listed herein, I am always making improvements to pages to make this website a valuable resource and a hub of information about the character of God, the people who are foremost in promoting it and more.
Pages Added Since the Last Newsletter:
- https://characterofgod.org/kevin-mullins/ – new contributor
That first page is a profile page for the newest contributor to the site, Kevin Mullins from Maine, USA. Kevin edited my new (revised) booklet The Lake of Fire and the Second Death mentioned further down – thanks Kevin. He also has a new book himself that is a great resource for children – A Children’s Guide to Understanding the Character of God and a new website – https://lastmessageofmercy.com
Seven of the remaining new pages are additions to The Character of God and the Gospel Glossary which I am continuing to build. It currently has detailed definitions for 34 terms with 30 more on the list to complete so I am a little over half way – except more terms keep coming up that seem to need definitions for a better understanding within the paradigm of the Biblical Healing Model of the Gospel. The whole list of terms appears on the main glossary page and below (terms showing as links are completed, others are in line to be done):
appease, atonement, believe, blood, blot, books/records, character, chasten, condemnation, conscience, curse, debt, destroy/destruction, destroyer, faith, fear, fire, forgiveness, forsake, glory, gospel, guilt, hardened, hiding the face, imputed, intercession, intercessor, jealous, judgment, just (a just man), just (God is just), justice, justification/justified, kill/murder, law, longsuffering, love, mark, mercy, name, perfection, pricks, probation, propitiation, punishment, recompense, reconciliation, remission, righteousness, sacrifice, sanctification, sanctuary, second death, sent, shame, sin, sin (made to be), sinner, smote, sword, vengeance, visit, worship, wrath/anger
Adding new pages so far this year has been slow as I have been working on another important project. It does have an interesting connection to the character of God and you will hear about it later.
There are a number of books offered free of charge (even postage is paid) at the resources page. Thank you to those who have generously donated to help others receive books. Please don’t feel you need to donate in order to request a book -the truth of God’s character needs to go out.
The Lake of Fire and the Second Death
My revised booklet The Lake of Fire and the Second Death is now (as of today) available and could be available in hardcopy very soon.
From the Back Cover:
To Bible readers concerned about Revelation’s Lake of Fire, this study will come as a relief. Why? Because, contrary to popular belief, that final judgment scene is not about a physical fire burning forever.
However, it will be a painful experience – mentally and emotionally. Billions of people will face their own wrong choices and the ultimate choice to not trust in God. With the realization of eternity lost, the degree of regret will be beyond measure. Along with guilt and shame as figurative coals of fire on their heads coming from within themselves, it will literally be enough to crush out their lives in the Second Death.
Here is something interesting from the book that relates to how the lost will finally perish in the Second Death. The letters “yod” and “hey” removed from the Hebrew words for “man” and “woman” respectively, when combined as yod-hey, make the word “Yah,” the poetic form of God’s name.
Will America Survive?
This still-free book offer may be of particular interest to those in the U.S. as it is going through difficult times. Request at: https://characterofgod.org/will-america-survive/
“Will America Survive?” 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.
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.
I am providing a link (below) to request the book Identity Wars by Adrian Ebens. This is a very good book showing that our value comes not from our performance but from our identity as sons and daughters of God.
Our lives are bombarded with a constant drone of messages telling us that success only comes from proving that we have what it takes, that we are only valuable when we achieve and perform. Discover true freedom, true value and worth. It will change your life. Available as an audio book and in 24 languages, 110 pages Download here.
