Just before the resurrected Jesus ascended after spending 50 days with His closest disciples, they had one last pressing question to ask Him.
“Lord,” they asked as recounted in Acts 1, “is this the time at which you will restore the Kingdom of Israel?”
Jesus told them it was not for them to know the times or the seasons, but instructed the Holy Ghost would come, giving them spiritual power, and they were to be His witnesses to the uttermost parts of the earth – a prerequisite, they knew, to His return and the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel and the entire world, with Jesus sitting in the throne of David in Jerusalem as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 24, Revelation 17, Revelation 19)
The apostles and disciples took this mission seriously to spread what Jesus called “the gospel of the Kingdom.” In the remainder of their lifetimes, they “turned the world upside down,” according to their worst critics. (Acts 17)
It was the rediscovery of this forgotten, or overlooked, or lost “Gospel of the Kingdom” that allowed me to write my new book, “The Gospel in Every Book of the Old Testament,” which is scheduled for release in September. I’m pleased to say that those who have previewed my new work – including Franklin Graham, Mike Huckabee, Jack Van Impe, Chuck Norris, Greg Laurie and dozens of other Christian leaders who have endorsed it – think it’s a breakthrough Bible book.
Why? Because the key to finding the Gospel in every book in the Hebrew Scriptures is this “Gospel of the Kingdom” that was so effectively preached in the first century.
To say this is the most important book I have ever written is a vast understatement. It’s the most important project of any kind I have ever been involved in. Period.
But I need your help to make it as successful as the publishing world seems to think it can be. And I am enlisting that help today for the first time.
This is a big project – much bigger than I. I’m not up to the rest of the job. I don’t have the financial resources to print the hundreds of thousands of books that will be required in a few months to fulfill the demand. Neither does WND. I know that. But I know the body of believers do have the resources. So, I come to you with an opportunity to turn the world upside down again for Jesus and His Gospel of the Kingdom with a book that can remind believers of the mission that remains incomplete – a mission that will precipitate the return of Jesus to Earth and a restoration of His Kingdom and the entire world.
How much money will it take?
In the big scheme of things – not that much. A few hundred thousand dollars is all it will take. One big check from a donor of means could fulfill the entire need. But I believe God wants His body involved – not just one person.
Today we launch what I am calling the “Gospel Project” to do just that – open the opportunity to participate in a revival of the full Gospel. What is the full Gospel? We all know about the Gospel of personal salvation. But, frankly, we have forgotten the Gospel of the Kingdom. And it is this component to which this new book bears witness.
By showing the Gospel message in every book of the Hebrew Scriptures, it demonstrates the consistency of the Bible, how it is a fully integrated theme, unchanging through all 66 books, including the 39 books of the Old Testament. In other words, it shows just how miraculous the Bible is.
It’s also a wonderful resource for Bible study that opens up the relevance of the Old Testament to believers, enhancing their faith and their perspective. One famous evangelist who has been preaching for 60 years told me he has crafted half a dozen sermons already being delivered around the world after reading “The Bible in Every Book of the Old Testament.” Then he asked me if he could preorder 10,000 copies for distribution through his worldwide ministry.
Can you help me? I admit I am not up to the challenge ahead.
I am humbly asking for your support for this breakthrough Bible book. I’d like you to see the cover. I’d like you to see the endorsements. I’d like you to catch the fever for this project, support it and spread the word any way you can – through social media and word of mouth.
