This new book provides you with a quick reference regarding death, and life after death. What happened to people before the Cross of Christ? What happens to people today, this side of the Cross? What is resurrection? What is the rapture of the Church? And how do these issues relate to how we live today as Christians?
The Unfolding Drama of Redemption: An Inductive Study of Salvation in the Old and New Testaments by W. Graham Scroggie (1994). Scroggie lived from 1877 to 1958. This volume is three books in one -- over 1400 pages -- originally written just after WWII. Thanks to the brother in Christ who graciously sent it to me.
"Therefore, if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you died and your life has been hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is manifested, then you also will be manifested with Him in glory." -- Colossians 3:1-4
Start really living the Christian life -- the Pauline life, the Heavenly life in Christ. No, not pie in the sky, not wishful thinking, not mysticism. The Pauline Christian life is walking in the Spirit according to God's written Word. This entails believing God when He says that the old man has been crucified with Christ and that we now walk in newness of life, no longer slaves of sin but slaves of righteousness -- a righteousness that is apart from law.
