The Purpose of the Bible,
Why Was It Written?


   Adam sinned, he disobeyed God. "Sin is the transgression of the law," -- 1.John 3:4. And "the wages of sin is death," -- Rom.6:23 (first part); so, "as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."  "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord," -- Rom.6:23 (last part). "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." -- John 3:16.


The Plan of Salvation

   The purpose of the Bible is to make known to man the "Plan of Salvation." Adam sinned against God and as a result brought the penalty of death upon himself and all mankind, together with a curse upon the face of the whole earth.  Eternal life and a beautiful world to live in, was the original purpose of the Creator. God, in his love and mercy, "not willing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to repentance," (2.Peter 3:9, last part), gave his only begotten Son (who knew no sin), to suffer the penalty, death, upon Calvary's Cross, -- as a substitute for man, that whosoever repented of their sins, and had faith in Christ's offering might escape the penalty of death, and at last be rewarded with eternal life.


What the Bible Does

   Revealing to man the glorious message of salvation, and to instruct him in the ways of the Lord is the paramount object of the Bible.  It deals with the most vital, questions of human interest, -- man's eternal life, or his eternal death. It is the voice of God pleading with poor, sinful man to turn from the error of his ways, and to have faith in his Son, Jesus Christ, who "taketh away the sin of the world." Repent and be converted that your sins may be blotted out.
   Our hold upon God is through repentance and confession of sins, -- with faith in God's promises, and prayer for Divine help. "Repent and be converted," and "if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness," -- 1.John 1:9.
   It is through prayer that we talk to God and make our requests known; and faith is what makes the things hoped for a reality. The study of the "Plan of Salvation" is sure to pay a dividend worth while. Christ says, "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." Through contemplation, obedience, and faith, we receive a foretaste of the good things to come, even in this life, and in the world to come, unspeakable glories and eternal life.


Salvation Only Through Christ

   Christ is the great central figure of the Scriptures, "the chiefest of ten thousand, the one altogether lovely,"  "a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief,"  "who, his own self, bare our sins in his own body on the tree,"  that we might have life. He is the lifegiver, the Saviour of mankind.
   The Old Testament writers were happy at the thought of a coming Saviour, as they prophesied of his coming.  He was the hope of the Patriarchs, the Redeemer of the World. "There is no other name under heaven whereby men may be saved." He died on the Cross, was buried, after three days rose again, and, was translated from the Mount of Olives into Heaven.
   An angel who stood by, said to the disciples, -- "This same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven," -- Acts 1:11.  Christ had already said to His disciples before leaving, -- "If I go, I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am there ye may be also."
   "I have read in Plato and Aristotle sayings that were very wise and noble, but I have never read in either of them, -- 'Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.'" -- Saint Augustine.
   "Christ is the great central fact in the world's history;  to Him everything looks forward or backward. All the lines of history, converge upon Him; all the march of providence is guided by Him; all the great purposes of God culminate in Him. The greatest and most momentous fact which the history of the world records is the fact of His birth," -- Spurgeon.

We don't know what is going on in this world because we have no clue
as to who the Illuminati are and what they have in mind for you and me:
global power elite Lucifer Rising global power elite
You can't defeat the enemy if you don't know who it is. We simply cannot see
the adversary because our senses have been blinded. In other words, most of us
are programmed to pull the strings for those who enslave us. Solution - read if you have
time, because at school they don't teach how to guard our freedom, neither do they teach
who our enemy is. Read, read Lucifer Rising  by Philip Jones  you owe it  to your family and
children. Stay close to God who made this nation great, not to the Angel of Light (Lucifer) who has
lately gained the ascendancy, who claims to bring peace and love and all sorts of new technologies.
The adherents of this movement believe that peace & love are constantly increasing but in reality we
are getting deeper into wars and hatred every day. False hope abounds, it keeps us pacified, that's
what the enemy wants. Rumors, lies and disinformation are being used to completely subdue us.
We are being told that the cabal of tyrants presently dominating the world is losing on all fronts,
and that soon they will be overcome and arrested, with the good guys (white dragon society,
and other hidden, but powerful groups) taking over and making the world a better place.
Not only that, but a perfect world is envisioned, where everybody has work to make a
decent living, where everybody is happy. Again, these are lies and disinformation
giving us false hope to keep us pacified and peaceful while the cabal of tyrants
is busy putting on the finishing touches to make their oppressive one world
government become reality, at which point most everybody will finally
wake up, to realize that the dreaded New World Order has arrived.
