Do you believe in many roads to salvation? When you think about establishing a relationship with God, what comes to mind? 

Do you know what the Bible reveals on this subject? Notice what Jesus Christ Himself has to say: "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day" (John 6:44) 

God starts this relationship process and you must choose to accept or reject His calling when offered. If you accept, you have a definite process to follow that He clearly reveals in the Bible. What is that process? 

1) After God calls you, repentance is the starting point in your relationship with Him. Without repentance, you are cut off from God. 

2) After you repent, your next step is water baptism, a primary principle of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 6:1-2). 

3) The next step on your road to eternal life is to receive God's Holy Spirit, which comes through "laying on of hands," as described in Hebrews 6:2. 

If God is calling you, will you respond? 

Inside the Bible Study aid ebook, The Road to Eternal Life, we will examine the Scriptures and look at the steps you must take to respond to God's calling. Start your journey on the only road to eternal life and be part of the awesome future God has planned for you!

"The Bible describes repentance as a profound realization of our sins and resulting sorrow that leads us to change our thoughts and actions (2 Corinthians 7:10)." 

"To some, the change God wants in us can appear so overwhelming that repentance and conversion to God's way of thinking seem impossible. And that's the point. Without God's help, they are impossible!" 

"Overcoming our habitual sins and selfish nature does not happen instantly. It is a lifelong process, often involving great effort." 

"The symbolic meaning of baptism, then, is profound. It represents both forgiveness of sins and newness of life in Christ." 

"No matter what our background or past mistakes, when we genuinely repent and are baptized, God promises complete forgiveness." 

"Living God's way must always remain our priority. We must continually "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness" (Matthew 6:33)."
The Arab Spring, the continuing Israel - Palestine conflict... why does the Middle East dominate the news headlines so often?One obvious answer is oil, the lifeblood of our modern world. The crucial importance of oil alone ensures that the Middle East will remain in the headlines for years.

The Middle East is also the birthplace of the world's three great monotheistic religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It has also been the battlefield for each religion—trying to control the territory they consider holy.

Nowhere are these conflicts more obvious than in Israel, and specifically in Jerusalem.

Whether you understand it or not, events in the Middle East are destined to affect the lives of every person on earth! Bible prophecy gives us the clues to understand what will happen.

This ebook, "The Middle East in Bible Prophecy", will help you better understand the troubled history of the Middle East—and its tumultuous future.

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"It’s impossible to understand the present Middle East without a knowledge of the three great religions that emanate from the area—Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These three faiths all trace their spiritual roots back to the same individual, Abraham."

"However, conflict between Christians and Muslims has been a constant theme of history for 14 centuries."

"Many other factors have contributed to the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and subsequent terrorism, including the Israeli-Palestinian problem and the domination of American culture."

"After so much death and destruction, and centuries of war and unrest in the Middle East, imagine what a difference the second coming of Jesus Christ will make."
Overwhelmed? Need a day off... a break? Maybe it's time to learn the truth about the Sabbath.Everyone, it seems, lives his or her life at a breakneck pace, constantly rushing here and there to get everything done. Technological advances that once promised more leisure time now seem only to push us further behind, making it ever more difficult to catch up.

So we frantically scramble. We feel out of touch—out of touch with our spouse, out of touch with our families, out of touch with the world around us and, perhaps most of all, out of touch with God. Is there a way to get back in touch?

In the Bible, God gives us a solution written within the Ten Commandments. It's a commandment that gives us time for a welcome, refreshing rest from our weekly labors, a time during which we must no longer be absorbed in our ordinary daily cares and concerns—a time for spiritual rejuvenation.

Inside the ebook, "Sunset to Sunset: God's Sabbath Rest", you will read why God commanded a day of rest and the purpose for it. You will discover the answers to which day is the Sabbath, why the Sabbath is relevant for all of us today and why this day of rest makes sense in today's world. Join us for a journey through the Bible to discover the importance of God's Sabbath rest.

"God, Creator of the Sabbath, determines when the day begins and ends, and it was observed from sunset to sunset throughout the Bible. His Sabbath begins Friday evening at sunset and ends Saturday evening at sunset."

"Jesus Himself clearly denied that He intended to change or abolish the Sabbath or any part of God’s law. “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets,” He said. “I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17)."

"Many who argue that the Sabbath was abolished in the New Testament point to the apostle Paul’s writings to justify their view. But is this opinion correct? They commonly cite three passages to support that claim—Romans 14:5-6, Colossians 2:16-17 and Galatians 4:9-10."

"Here we see God’s true intent for the Sabbath: It is part of a proper, loving relationship with Him. It is a matter of honoring God."
Does your life have real meaning?What is my destiny? Why do I exist? Is there a reason for my life?

Have you asked these questions? If so, you are not alone - these questions have baffled and confused people through the ages.

A child naturally wonders, "Where did I come from?" As we get older and become uncertain about our future we want to know... "Did my life have a purpose? Is this all there is? What's next...anything?" From the beginning to the end of our lives, we ponder the meaning of life.

Think about your own existence. Can you see a purpose for your own life with its ups and downs, its mixture of joys and sorrows? Do you sense lasting value in its toil, challenges and uncertainties?

Never underestimate the value of your life. From the very beginning, God has planned an incredible future for you!

Thousands of years ago, the biblical King David looked up into the night sky and wrote down his thoughts regarding man's relationship with his Creator: "When I consider Your heavens, the works of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?" (Psalm 8:3-8)

King David wondered about the purpose of man just as we do today. Every one us was created for a purpose, but few understand what that great purpose is.

Inside the Bible Study aid, What is Your Destiny?, we will search through the scriptures in the Bible and find out the purpose God has planned personally for you.

Its time you began to understand your real future!

"Throughout the ages the overwhelming majority of people have failed to grasp the amazing future God has in store for those who develop a proper relationship with Him."

"That family relationship—our becoming children of God the Father—is the heart and core of God’s incredible plan for humanity!"

"The Bible explains that those inducted into God’s immortal family must first sincerely repent of their sins, be baptized and receive the gift of God’s Spirit (Acts 2:38)."

"Those who overcome will be given responsibility as kings and priests of God in that Kingdom (Revelation 1:5-6)."
Is death the end of human existence and consciousness, or do we continue in some other place or state of being? Do we go to a place of everlasting reward or eternal torment? Are we destined to be reincarnated, coming to life again in a different body in a seemingly endless cycle of living and dying? Will we ever see deceased loved ones again?

Is there somewhere you can go to find the answers to these questions? The Bible tells us exactly what happens after death.

It tells us what happens to those who have done right (will they go to heaven?) and wrong (or be tormented in an ever-burning hell?) and reveals the fate of the billions of people who have never known God and His way of life. Most churches claim to teach what the Bible says—but what does it really reveal?

"...those who have died are unconscious, as if they are sleeping a dreamless sleep, awaiting their time to be called out of the grave and resurrected to a new life."

"Many people, however, believe in a perpetual, ever-burning hellfire or a condition of spiritual torment in which evil people are tortured throughout eternity. But the Bible’s simple teaching conveys nothing like this."

"Understanding the meaning of life, death and what follows this physical life can give priceless comfort and hope in the face of death. It should also have a great impact on the kind of person you are, motivating you to live carefully and make wise choices."
Today is the day you choose . . . which game you want to win, which prize you want to collect, which priorities you want to set.

It’s a thrill to win at checkers or Clue or Trivial Pursuit. You sweep aside the other players and you “own” the board. It’s also a thrill to win a promotion at work … the new house you wanted … that sports car you’ve always eyed. But just like the game cards, the tokens, and the timer, those prizes are temporary. When the game is over, they all go back in the box.

Games can cast a powerful spell, says bestselling author John Ortberg. But the wisest player remembers that the game is always going to end. So what can we take with us to the kingdom of God? Only the love we have for Christ, the love we have for each other, and our own souls. While it’s not bad to be good at chess or Risk—or the game of life on Earth—we can’t allow it to get in the way of what really matters.

Using his humor and his genius for storytelling, Ortberg helps you focus on the real rules of the game and how to set your priorities. When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box Participant’s Guide helps explain how, left to our own devices, we tend to seek out worldly things, mistakenly thinking they will bring us fulfillment. But everything on Earth belongs to God. Everything we “own” is just on loan. And what pleases God is often 180 degrees from what we may think is important.

In the six sessions you will learn how to:

Live passionately and boldlyLearn how to be active players in the game that pleases GodFind your true mission and offer your bestFill each square on the board with what matters mostSeek the richness of being instead of the richness of having

You can’t beat the house, notes Ortberg. We’re playing our game of life on a giant board called a calendar. Time will always run out, so it’s a good thing to live a life that delights your Creator. When everything goes back in the box, you’ll have made what is temporary a servant to what is eternal, and you’ll leave this life knowing you’ve achieved the only victory that matters.

What's ahead for the United States and Britain?Is the world's most powerful nation—the United States of America—overlooked in Bible prophecy?

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Why has history been so benevolent and economically generous to Britain and the United States? Why have they been blessed so favorably over the nations that preceded them in history? The answer lies in the understanding and fulfillment of biblical prophecy."

"God's promise to Abraham was not limited to a small and ancient people in the Middle East. It extends far into the future, and it is not limited by national boundaries."

"Where can we find the descendants of Joseph, the lost tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh? This list of blessings eliminates most of the nations of the world as contenders. To find them we must ask: Which nations possess these blessings in our world?"

"When we understand that the modern descendants of Joseph are the people of the United States and Britain, we see that over the past three centuries God has been true to His promises."

"Though the United States and Britain do not appear in the Bible's prophecies of the end time under their present names, God hasn't ignored these nations. He identifies them in prophecy according to their ancestry. Most people simply haven't known where to look for them."
