The giants we face have different names: Fear. Discouragement. Loneliness. Worry. Guilt. Temptation. Anger. Resentment. Doubt. Procrastination. Failure. Jealousy. Call them what you will; they’re only giants, after all, like Goliath. He was a shade over nine feet tall, but it only added up to a bigger dent in the pavement once he fell. The bigger they come, the harder they fall.

Rapture practice, 6:30 PM, Wednesday

Can you imagine...

walking into church one Sunday and seeing this announcement posted on the bulletin board?

The amazing reality

Can you imagine...

walking into church one Sunday and seeing this announcement posted on the bulletin board?

oh, I know it might seem silly

...to think about attending a rehearsal for the Rapture—but here’s the amazing reality:

God’s Word outlines ten ways we should be preparing for Christ’s return!

And when you think about it, it only makes sense...rehearsal just means getting ready for something—it’s preparation for a future event. And that is exactly what we should be doing in light of Christ’s return.

THE SUPREME STUDY OF A LIFETIME

Take the Journey From Knowing About God to Knowing God

The God/Jesus You May Not Know Books

You’ve trusted God with your eternal life, but do you trust Him with your tomorrow? Even if you grew up in Sunday school, the truths you learned as a child will not carry you through life in a world that unravels more each day.

This may surprise you, but nothing is more critical to your personal needs right now than to know God fully. He is the greatest answer to life’s questions and the source of all truth. If you would like to experience His presence—His peace—His limitless power, take an intimate journey into the heart and mind of God the Father and God the Son with Dr. David Jeremiah.

Excerpt from The God You May Not Know

Is knowing God your determined purpose and priority?

Is knowing God your determined purpose and priority? Are you progressively becoming more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him? Are you growing daily in your understanding of the wonders of His person?

In simple terms, getting to know God is no different than getting to know another person.

There are 7.6 billion people on earth, most of whom we’ll never meet. Of those we do meet, we’ll only know most of them casually or in passing. But from time to time, we meet someone with whom we develop a friendship. By spending time together, we talk to them and listen to them, learning each other’s stories. We become better acquainted. By spending more time together, our relationship grows. Our knowledge of the other deepens, and we grow in our mutual love and concern. A few of these friends become our dearest, best, and closest friends. Even then, we can’t take the relationship for granted. If time passes without communication and fellowship, we drift apart.

A close friendship—a marriage, for example—requires time, effort, work, and continual communication. But is it ever worth it!

Getting to know God is the same. We meet Him through Jesus Christ, who, by His death and Resurrection, has given us access into His presence. We get to know Him better by spending time with Him, conversing, talking with Him in prayer, and listening to Him through His Word. When we neglect our fellowship with God, the spiritual quality of our lives begins to dim.

If we aren’t careful, we become “trained” Christians, people who have learned to do the things others expect outwardly. But while maintaining those outward traditions, we may be God-starved inwardly….

Here is the key: We can only worship someone we love, and we can only love someone we know. Worship fundamentally begins in the heart when we come to know God. If we really know Him as He wants to be known, we will love Him. And if we really love Him, worship will be the explosion that takes place in our souls as we comprehend and appreciate our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend as we gratefully sing of His power and His love. Trying to manufacture that from the outside in doesn’t work.

The Jesus You May Not Know

Excerpt from The Jesus You May Not Know

I want to introduce you...

I want to introduce you to the Man who has rescued me from death, filled me with hope, directed me in the decisions that have shaped my destiny, employed me in His global work, and is currently preparing a new home for me in a place where I’ll never grow old.

He is my Mentor and Master, and it’s a joy to introduce you to the Jesus you may not know.

None of us know Him as fully as we should, for Jesus is the mystery of the ages—the Almighty God whose throne is in heaven; the Nazarene Carpenter who wiped sweat from His brow; the Stranger of Galilee who napped in a boat; the Teacher whose wisdom changed the ethics of the world; the Prisoner whose execution was excruciating; the Corpse who borrowed a tomb; the Body who returned to life; the Savior who bled for the world; the Hero who divided history into B.C. and A.D.; and the glorious King whose return is right on schedule.

So multifaceted is He that the Bible overflows with names, titles, and designations to describe Him. He is:

The Alpha and Omega, and the Anointed One
The Beloved Son, and the Bright and Morning Star
The Carpenter of Nazareth, and the Christ of Glory
The Deliverer, and the Daystar From on High
The Everlasting Lord
The First and the Last, and the Faithful and True
The Great I AM, and the Good Shepherd
The High Priest, and the Holy One of Israel
Immanuel—God With Us
The Judge of All the Earth
The King of the Jews, and the King of Kings
The Lily of the Valley, the Lamb of God, the Lion of Judah, and the Lord of Lords
The Man of Sorrows, and the Morning Star
The Nazarene
The Overcomer
The Prince of Peace
The Redeemer, the Rabbi, and the Rock
The Son of God, the Son of Man, and the Savior of the World
The Teacher Who Came From God
The Virgin’s Son
The Word of God
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
Yeshua, Joshua, Jesus.

How do you explain Someone like that?

In a book of Christmas stories, I once found this description of Christ:

He was a working man, a ragged carpenter with neither a roof above His head nor a pillow beneath it, sleeping under the stars or in borrowed beds, His robe a blanket, His nightlight the moon.

For thirty-six months He drifted about doing good and telling stories. He never hurt a soul. He healed the sick, taught the masses, fed the hungry, walked across the seas, and preached the good news. Wherever He went, the miraculous broke out—at weddings, at funerals, on the land and on the lake, on the mountainside and in the city streets. He became the help of the helpless and the hope of the hopeless. He turned water into wine, and with bread and fish He fed a multitude; yet He Himself was sometimes hungry, and in His death He cried out in thirst . . . He was buried in a donated mausoleum. Yet His tomb, guarded by the Roman soldiers, was opened by heavenly agents—and found empty. And for two thousand years we can say that all the angels of heaven, all the demons of hell, all the stars in the sky, and all the men of the earth have never understood the influence of this gentle child in swaddling clothes who was laid in a manger with no crib for a bed—Jesus Christ our Lord.1

Because Jesus lived in history (there’s no doubt about that) and because His life was recorded (the entire Bible is about Him), we can learn about Him. But because He rose from the grave and is now alive, we can have a personal relationship with Him and come to know Him more deeply and intimately. In the following pages, I’d like to help you grow closer to Jesus—the Beloved Son, the Everlasting Lord, the Promised Messiah, the Sacrificial Intercessor, the Compassionate Servant, the Powerful Provider, the Trusted Teacher, the Great I AM, the Selfless Savior, the Worthy King... and my Best Friend.

May He be yours too!

Does the God of the Old Testament seem different from the Jesus of the New Testament?

One of the reasons we don’t love God and trust Him as much as we should is because we don’t know Him as well as we ought.

The God You May Not Know

You May Not Know Him as Well as You Think

There is a tendency in our culture to rail against God the Father, believing Him to be an angry and unforgiving judge. This overlooks a truth as fundamental as John 3:16: It was the Father who sent the Son to live among us and demonstrate His love to our dying world!

Trying to understand God is like trying to capture all the galaxies of the universe in a child’s prism. Yet God seeks to be known.

We can only worship someone we love, and we can only love someone we know. Let Dr. David Jeremiah take you on a journey to discover the God who loves you more than you know.

The Jesus You May Not Know

Jesus? Sure. Lots of People Know About Him.

You may have been blessed with godly Christian parents who introduced you to Jesus and raised you to fall in love with the Bible. Perhaps, like David Jeremiah, you were raised with firsthand knowledge of the joy that comes from sharing the Gospel with others. But do you know Jesus as you should?

It wasn’t until he had graduated seminary and began to pastor that Dr. Jeremiah realized how much he did not know about Jesus. Through five decades of teaching God’s Word, he continues to discover more about Jesus every day. Now, he invites you to take an amazing journey into the very heart of Christ—not through a storybook of His life, but through an astonishing exploration of His character, His attributes, His Spirit.

It would take months to share how your teaching has made me a more mature follower of God—your daily devotions as well as your books, The God You May Not Know and The Jesus You May Not Know…. I pray God continues to use your ministry to reach not just the unsaved but the ones who are saved for a closer walk with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

…I am starting The God You May Not Know and will then read The Jesus You May Not Know. Your teachings always lead directly to the Bible and deepen my faith, without being “trendy”—just genuine Bible study to know and love the Lord more fully and to know how deeply my family is loved by Him.
