Tonight, Tuesday, September 19, 2017: We continue our awesome, exciting, and most
amazing study on Revelation: The Book.The
study will begin with Chapter Five, The Seven-Sealed Scroll.We will begin in our text on page 124.
You may start this Bible
Enrichment class at any time.Come even
if this is your first meeting or your first one in the recent past.
The Book of Revelation
is the crown jewel of the entire Bible.In this final book one finds a link to every important Doctrine
previously explained beginning in the book of Genesis.Lewis Sperry Chafer explains it this way:
**We do not agree with Tim LaHaye on every
point.As with any resource there are
going to be biases and positions that are governed by other influences than the
Scriptures such as denominational positions on theological, moral, and social
subjects.We absolutely do not agree
with Tim LaHaye on matters of sexual orientation and gender expression.The core of his work on explaining the Book
of Revelation is sufficient enough to warrant our using this resource.Areas were we may not agree will be pointed
out during classes.
Theme of this entire
study:The Revelation Of Jesus
Christ.Who is Jesus?This study will lead you to everything the
Holy Scriptures reveal about Jesus.As
Christians this is the most important information we will ever want to
understand.It is inspiring,
exhilarating, and will motivate the student / disciple into active service of
the one and only True Christ.

Ray Of Hope Church Of
Our Lord Jesus Christ, Inc. teaches the Doctrine of Universal Salvation.This is the statement we agreed upon in 2011
and added to our Bylaws.
“We believe that
Salvation is a gift that God has given to the entire human race.Romans Chapter Five explains this Doctrine of
Universal Salvation.One’s personal
salvation is assured by believing in God as per John 5:24.Salvation is best known through the Gospel of
Jesus the Christ, and through rebirth by the Holy Spirit.” (Ray Of Hope Church
Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Inc By-Laws September, 2011Lines 1141 - 1148)
We are using the 1999 edition. Available as used copies on Amazon click here.
Many aspects of Tim LaHaye's theology are not consistent with the ROH Statement of Purpose, especially on matters of sexual orientation and Gender expression. We do not endorse many of his opinions. These are noted during classes.
God knows all of God's works from the beginning to all time. (Acts 15:17b-18)
From the beginning I revealed the end. From long ago I told you things that had not yet happened, saying, "My plan will stand, and I'll do everything I intended to do." (Isaiah 46:10 God's Word Trans.)
