A revelation of Jesus Christ is what needs to be the starting point, the middle piece, and the desired goal in not only youth settings, but in all settings where souls for whom Christ died is being presented. I am happy to hear of this focus and trust that Brother Case will do a great job in serving up Christ and His glory. The secret to true Christian living.

to understand the Book of Revelation one must first understand the Gospel of John and his Letters. One must also understand Ceasar’s Rome and Hebrew History. The bottom line is the assurance of the victory of the Lamb over the beast and dragon. The critical point is the victory belongs to Christ alone, Man has the opportunity despite terror to share in that victory. What is tested is Trust, even unto death. The hand of Ceasar could reach as far as Asia Minor. In the last days that type of power will be global, yet Christ still wins. Tom Z


Happy Anniversary!
Today is October 22.
Anniversary of the beginnings of the SDA Denomination. Has the “Movement” stopped?


Dr. Steve Case is and has been a real gem among us. I attended his seminars at ‘Piece of the Pie Ministry’ here in Australia some 20 years ago. He was a breath of fresh air among us.
Thankyou Steve.
