Cherished Liberty

Freedom Through Military Victory

Can a believer in Jesus Christ serve his country as a soldier, kill the enemy, and
 at the same time be a good Christian? Can a believer justify being a conscientious
 objector? Did God contradict Himself in the commandments, "You shall not murder"
and "You  shall defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them"? The Bible answers
  these critical questions. God established a principle by which a nation may guard
 its sovereignty, maintain its freedom, and protect its citizenry from the horrors of
 conquest by a foreign power. An alert and
  stalwart military force averts armed conflict and deters wanton aggression. Yet when
an enemy aggressor will not be deterred, the military must defend and protect those
who cannot defend themselves. those in military service who place a higher value on
their families, friends, and nation then on their own lives ensure the survival of our
cherished liberty. Just as the Lord Jesus Christ made the greatest sacrifice of all history
on the cross-- dying so that mankind might have eternal life---so the military warriors
sacrifice their time, their fortunes, and sometimes their lives that others might live in
freedom.

Etched In Time

The Divine Outline Of History:
Dispensations And The Church

The divine outline of history is etched  in time and explained 
in the Word of God. God unfolds His plan for mankind as a 
sequence of historical epochs. Unique characteristics identify
each period as a distinct  administration or "dispensation" of
divine  grace. God Himself  never changes. His  successive 
dispensations achieve His unchanging purpose, revealing His
self  and His perfect glory in every human situation. This book
casts a dramatic light on Jesus Christ, the focal point of human
history. Biblical mandates for the current epoch, the Age of the
Church, clarify the Christian's role in history and his unique
opportunity for glorifying Christ.

Book By R.B. Thieme, Jr. 

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the 
Lord's purpose that prevails.
Prov. 19:21

Never Waver

Daniel Chapters One Through Six

In every age, God's plan for humanity includes certain ordinary
people who do the extraordinary: they impact history and glorify
God by using divine solutions to overcome adversity. What enables
these remarkable believers to exhibit virtue and courage in a crisis ?
They trust in the Lord and fortify their souls with Bible doctrine. 
Daniel was such a man. Under the intense pressure of catastrophe,
his faithfulness and dependence on the Lord distinguished him as a
man with a noble purpose in life. God uses prepared believers, and
this Jewish aristocrat was spiritually prepared to transform the 
Chaldean and Persian Empires into citadels of stability and honor
 in the ancient world. Devoted service and promotion to high office
in both Chaldean and Persia placed Daniel in the unique position to
further advance the plan of God for Israel. He was truly a man for the
crisis. Throughout monumental adversity Daniel never once wavered
from divine viewpoint. His life exemplified that any believer armed
with Bible doctrine in the soul can do the extraordinary in the midst
of human disaster.

Though you may stumble, you will not fall, for the Lord
upholds you with His hand.

The Word

Canonicity
Vividly describes the divine inspiration that produced the Bible.
As the revelation of God, the Bible is the most widely read, most
influential, and  most enduring  book ever published. Canonicity
answers many  perplexing questions: How was the  Bible preserved
through the centuries? Is the Apocrypha actually a part of the Word?
What about the Dead Sea Scrolls? For the student of Bible doctrine, a
knowledge of  the historical formation of the Word of God is  a source
of strength to defend  against the numerous attacks upon the authenticity
and authority of the Bible.

In The Future

Armageddon

On  a day yet future, Israel will be the focal point of the last,
most  terrifying conflagration  the world has  ever  seen. Arm-
ageeddon  is truly the war to end all wars! Because of the unique
promises of God to Israel, Satan has sponsored hostility toward the
Jews throughout history. In a final act of malevolence, he brings to-
gether four great, satanically- inspired, gentile empires to annihilate
this  tiny nation. Israel is surrounded, cut  off, caught in a hopeless
military  situation by  these vast  armies. The Jews  have only one 
salvation. Their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, will return to earth
to fight for them. In triumph He will defeat the forces arrayed against 
Israel, depose Satan as the ruler of this world, establish His millennial
kingdom, and fulfill His covenants with Israel.

The Lord will keep you from all harm- He will 
watch over your life; the Lord will watch over
your coming and going both now and forevermore.

History--They Will Survive

Anti-Semitism

Is a masterstroke of treacherous evil. Endless Jewish persecutions
verify Satan-inspired antagonism toward God's elect people. History
authenticates the devastating effect of such virulent bigotry, while the
biblical portrayal of this heinous intolerance presents the divine per---
spective and solution. Old and New Testament passages outline the plan
of God for the Jew throughout human history. In the unconditional
covenants to Israel, God guarantees that the Jew will survive despite 
cruel treatment. Therefore, He condemns anti-Semitism  as a con---
tradiction to His sovereign will and purpose. No one should ever be 
guilty of this insidious prejudice. Divine judgment and utter ruin are
the ultimate destiny of individuals or nations that practice anti- Semitism
in the past, present, and future.

Book By R.B. Thieme, Jr

Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more,
the Lord will be your everlasting light and your days of sorrow 
will end.

History And Prophecy

The Angelic Conflict
Rages around us, This is not a world war. This is a war
 beyond the world--an invisible warfare between the forces
of Satan and the forces of God. Long before  the advent of 
human  history, Satan arrogantly rebelled against his Creator.
He wanted to make  himself " like the Most High" and recruited
one-third of the angels to follow him. When God justly condemned
Satan and his fallen angels, Satan appealed the sentence--questioning
how a loving God could cast His creatures into hell. Planet Earth is now
the battleground where Satan seeks to prove the judgment unfair and foil
the execution of his sentence. Through the freewill decisions of mankind,
God proves to Satan His perfect justice and love again and again. As believers,
it is imperative we understand the spiritual warfare that surrounds us. Satan uses
every ruse at his command to derail and discredit those who are in Christ, but God 
has provided for our defense  an overwhelming advantage in a powerful suit of spiritual
armor. With it we can with stand the 'flaming missiles of the evil one' and become heroes
in the invisible war.

If you believe what you like in the Gospel and reject what you
do not like , it is not Gospel you believe, but yourself.

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.
Psalm 119:18
