The Immanuel Project – Preface

Preface

Anyone that studies the Bible with any amount of vigor knows about the mystery of the Gospel that Paul talks about so many times in his letters.  But if quizzed, I wonder how many could actually define the true depth of that mystery? 

In writing this book, I don’t claim to understand the full breath of the mystery of God.  That would be too presumptuous for any man.  The mystery I propose to those reading this pertains to the great mystery encompassing our salvation and the price God paid to be with us.  Yes, that’s what I said, “… to be with us”.  You see, the focus of our salvation belongs to God, not us.  If you get nothing else out of this book, understand that your salvation belongs to God! He planned it before man sinned; He manifested it when we did not know how badly we needed it; He purchased it though there was nothing to gain except a bunch of unrighteous created beings; He provided it free of charge to any who accept it.  He owns the ones He’s purchased.  He holds the bragging rights! 

The question “Why?” should exist within every humble and repentant heart.  Why should an infinite (with no beginning or ending), omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (everywhere) and transcendent (dwelling outside our physical universe) God step into time and space to alter the course of history for a degenerate society of clueless beings? 

So, as you enter into your time of reading, you must set aside yourself and focus completely on the Creator God.  You must ask yourself “Why?”  What I present in this book could potentially lead you into a newer, fresher and deeper relationship with God than you ever dreamed possible.  I want to get you past the “acquaintance” level relationship with God and even past the “friendship” level relationship that many attain to. I want to encourage you to establish a relationship that leads you to know a knowable God in the intimate way that I believe He designed.  Moses, Abraham, Joseph, Enoch, Elijah and Daniel walked in it.  Jesus showed us how we could do it.  Now grab your Bible, your love letter from God, and follow me as we discover a God that wants nothing more than to be with you.
