In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (Ephesians 1:13)

“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13)

We received salvation by grace through faith in Lord Jesus Christ and Him alone. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to be grateful to the Lord for His sacrifice for us, and dying a substitutionary death on the cross of Calvary on behalf of us. We find solace in Him, who promised us that we will not only see Him face to face when He comes again, but we will be conformed to His image, and will be with Him forever and ever. It is a promise made by God that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

A Lamb by each household of the children of Israel, was slain by the children of Israel, and its blood was applied to the lintel posts of each of their homes in order to escape from the wrath of the LORD against the Egyptians, who held them as slaves for four hundred years.  The LORD killed all the first born of the Egyptians and their cattle, while saving all the first born of the Israelites.

The Lord redeemed us from the bondage of sin, and therefore, we should be thankful to Him more than anything that we have. We are thankful to the Lord for writing our names in the “book of life”.

Our desire is that those, who have not known the goodness of Lord Jesus Christ, may come to know His love for mankind, and the salvation that He offers. Not for any earthly riches that we strive for, but for heavenly inheritance that the Lord promised to us that we strive for. Our rewards are in heaven. Lord Jesus said…

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Matthew 6:33

Just as the children of Israel suffered bondage of slavery under Pharaoh in Egypt, we were also held captive under Satan.  Just as the children were redeemed from the bondage of slavery, we are also redeemed from the bondage of slavery under sin.

The LORD led the children of Israel and helped them cross the Red Sea, which He parted into two to make way for them to tread on the dry pathway all the way to the other side of the shore. Their enemy led by Pharaoh and His mighty warriors, who pursued them from behind, and his chariots were all drowned by the LORD in the Red Sea.

The LORD went before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.  The pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire were always there for their protection. The LORD took of the wheels of their chariots and caused great havoc for Egyptians.

The innocent children of Israel were to do nothing except trust God and follow His commands. It was all by the LORD, and by His mighty power that the enemy was destroyed, granting incredible victory to the children of Israel (cf. Exodus 13:18-22 and 14:24-3).

Speaking to His disciples, Lord Jesus Christ said to them not to be troubled in their hearts, but instead believe in God and believe in Him, as well. He is the Son of God, the very incarnate God Himself. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8)

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28)


This book deals with the facts about the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ and intriguing questions about “Rapture”, “The Restrainer”, “Antichrist”, “The Two Witnesses”, “Armageddon Battle”, ”New Jerusalem”, Israel and the Church, which are two distinct entities, and various Temples described in the Bible.

The sacrifices of Old Testament period are restored to the Israel during millennial kingdom. God promised that David’s kingdom will be everlasting. The temple in the millennial kingdom is the promise of God and He will fulfill His covenants viz., Old Covenant, New Covenant, Abrahamic Covenant. Solomon’s prayer and answer to his prayer by God, have much significance to understand the plan of God for Israel and the Church.
