Posts Tagged ‘strengthen your faith’

The thing I love about Jack Kelly’s articles is the simplicity with which he peels back so many layers of the onion (layers of scriptural truth/meanings).

The topic of this article is so very important during these last days that are so filled with deception.  It regards our salvation.

We not only need to know “how we are saved” but why it works the way it does.  It reveals the genius of God.

Jack lays it out beautifully and by knowing “why”, your belief and faith will be strengthened.  Just as study of prophecy strengthen’s our faith.

Enjoy!

God Bless!
