A beautifully researched history of God's Miraculous signs and wonders. In our age of constant innovation, technological achievement, and the sad tendency to see ourselves as the captains of our fate, we may be tempted to make little time for miracles, or give little credence to them. But to live our lives without a sense of the miraculous is to live impoverished lives. Our word for miracle comes from the Latin word mirari, "to wonder." And well might we wonder when we consider the nature of miracles and their purpose. For always, Scripture teaches, the emphasis is on what God has revealed through the miracles he has bestowed on humanity. Miracles are all about him, and what he has revealed is extraordinary. Kevin Belmonte provides learned insight into the profoundly important history of miracles. Miraculous is a richly researched tapestry of wondrous things that have taken place from ancient times to the present.

Taken from Daniel 12:3, "Those Who Are Wise Will Shine" uncovers God's awesome power at work in the lives of those He chose to bear His message of Redemption, from Adam to Christ. The lives of these faithful brightly shined forth with His presence in the face of a world full of darkness. They knew He spoke to them, called them, and in turn, they were constrained to follow Him. There is no better way to shine for the Lord than to know with determined faith, who He really is and that where He leads, you will faithfully follow! These ancient pioneers of faith displayed just that! This work seeks to take the readers back to the basics of Redemption and Sanctification though the unfolding of the "Redemptive Thread" that links the blood lineage of our ancient forefathers to the rise of our Messiah, Jesus Christ. It ends with the joyous events still to come at His Second Advent. From creation to the cross, redemption and sanctification are certainly defined as two of the zealous desires of the Lord. The overall central theme of the Holy Scripture is redemption. Humanity is fallen, separated from God, and in dire need of reconciliation. The Lord’s perfect gift of redemption reconciles the breach. His work in us is what follows. Immediately He begins that work, and it will never be complete until we see Him face-to-face!! He calls us to be holy and set apart for His service. Never underestimate the value He has placed on you as a vessel chosen with purpose to be His emissary shining His light into this dark world. It is God’s foundational will for each of us to emanate the fragrance of Christ in all He calls us to be. Today, Christians in most places are still in need of the milk of the word. They lead a very shallow and powerless Christian life. It is one of the reasons the church is so lifeless in many places. It is not enough to know of the elementary principles of Christianity, we must also understand their meaning in terms of God's continual work in us. We must take them to heart. This volume seeks to lay a foundation of trusting God by understanding how God worked in the lives of past saints to make sure His message of redemption went unhindered so it could be ours today. Millions in the past millennia have gone beyond the superficial and with God's help, stood firmly and boldly on His side! A proper understanding of Redemption will only lead you to rejoice with “joy unspeakable” as you stand in unrestricted service to God. He has liberated us to fulfill our redemptive purpose. He truly has set us free! Hebrews 13:9b teaches us, “For it is good that the heart be established by grace...” The word established comes from ß?ßa??? which means to be firm or secure, literally propped up, as in a stick holding up a tent. If our heart is truly established by the true teaching of Grace, which comes from the nature of the Father, then when we fall, we still stand. Rejoice in Him...For Redemption provides just that!

PRACTICAL TOOLS FOR INTERPRETING THE BIBLE The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured in many of our homes. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different from us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us don't because we have a hard time understanding the Bible. In this updated edition of Knowing Scripture, R.C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. The author says, ''The theme of this book is not how to read the Bible but how to study the Bible.'' He presents in simple, basic terms a commonsense approach to studying Scripture and gives eleven practical guidelines for biblical interpretation and applying what we learn. With a minimum of technical jargon, Sproul tackles some of the knotty questions regarding differences of interpreting the Bible, including: discovering the meanings of biblical words, understanding Hebrew poetry, proverbs and parables, approaching historical and didactic passages, being careful with predictive prophecy, discerning how culture conditions the Bible, choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software and other helps Knowing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and those who have been at it for a long time.
