StandingWatch

Proclaiming the warnings of prophecy for our times and announcing the good news of the coming Kingdom of God

Oct 1, 2014

Hope in Trials

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is a message of hope-it is God's good news to man about his future. In times of trials, it is important to remind ourselves about what God has in store for us. Most have no idea, but the Bible clearly reveals that it is the potential of man to become God-"gods" or God beings in God's Family! Blasphemy? That's what they said when Jesus preached it. That's what many say today. And that is why they despair and are without confidence in God's help when problems come. We are offering you our free weekly Update and our free booklet, "The Gospel of the Kingdom of God."
