Many sincere believers have tithed faithfully but have never experienced the financial blessings that they were promised. What went wrong? Tithing Under The New Covenant answers this question and many more, bringing liberty to the reader in the area of finances and giving.
Follows the life of Saul of Tarsus, beginning with his conversion on route to Damascus, to his contending with the Judaizers. The issue being contended was whether or not the Gentile believers in Jesus were to observe the Law of Moses. This book is a compilation of the Biblical facts around this event using the Scriptures as a narrative. Ultimately it answers the question from the Scriptures themselves.
When it comes to books devoted to eschatology in general and the Rapture specifically, they often either read like a formal academic argument written solely for the benefit of scholars or employ the use of fiction to avoid directly handling the underlying biblical text. As with Jacob's previous books and exhaustive list of sermons covering nearly every area of theology, Harpazo presents the doctrine of the Rapture and Resurrection in the strictest biblical sense possible, leveraging the handling of Scripture in the same manner as passed along to us by Christ through the Apostles and Early Church of the 1st century.
"How the identity of the coming Antichrist will be revealed to the faithful Church". This is not like so many books which attempt to name a specific person to be named as the Antichrist or to make a case that the ultimate Antichrist can only come from a particular place or background. Scripture teaches us that he will be revealed to the faithful church by Christ, and this work provides the tools and background to accomplish this at the appointed time. It is highly recommended that this work be read in tandem with The Dilemma of Laodicea, Jacob's book on the seven churches in Revelation which provides a platform for understanding how the spirit of antichrist has been at work during every age of the Church and particularly in this final age, which is characterized by the church at Laodicea.
A thought-provoking book addressing vital issues facing the contemporary Church with new material on the "Purpose Driven" and the "Emergent Church".
There are "things which you have seen", "things which are", and "things which will take place". The seven churches of the book of Revelation, which actually existed in the 1st century ("things which you have seen"), also represent seven broad types of churches that can exist at any time in history ("things which are"), and seven generally overlapping periods of church history ("things which will take place"). These letters to the seven churches of Asia can be applied in four main ways: They existed literally and historically at the end of the 1st century AD. They are seven types of churches which exist at any time throughout history. They represent seven types of churches that will exist at the end of the age. They correspond quite well to seven periods of church history. This book examines the history of the church in light of the letters of Jesus Christ to the seven churches in Asia, as recorded by John in his Revelations. Unless learning can be achieved from the errors of the past it is a sure thing that those errors will be repeated.
Grain For the Famine offers some of Jacob's most popular sermons. In this day when the Church is looking for a purpose and running to and fro looking for the next program and starving from these activities, Moriel offers Grain to satisfy that hunger for these last days.
With the rise and proliferation of false prophets and false teachers this has come true in our day. People are perishing for a lack of knowledge. Yet God promises in His Word that the righteous will never go without bread. In a follow up to Grain for the Famine, Moriel humbly offers More Grain for the Famine to feed the faithful in these last days.
