This is a new book written by the author. It starts out describing how the World is in such terrible times, and how the Bible predicted that this would happen. It talks about the time leading up to Jesus’s return on Earth. He describes as Christians, that we do not have to live by the principles of this world. He gives ten concepts or idea’s on how we can survive and prosper well in the current state of the World. The first concept of staying calm , gives us the scenerio that trials and tribulations are going to come, its how we “respond’ to them that makes the difference. He described that Jesus understands what pressure is, and at certain times in his life he felt distressed at situations that were going on around him. It describes in John 14:1-6 that he was the way, the truth, and the life and that no one comes to the father except through him. The author desribe taht Jesus was the “ultimate in comfort.” He states that Jesus had asked us to believe in a person, Himself, and to believe in a place, describing the mansions in heaven. The third thing Jesus asked us was to believe in a promise, a plan. The second principle is staying compassionate. He describe what the “essence and expression of compassion was, and how to live that lifestyle while here. The author was very thorough in describing how to exercise compassion and gave biblical examples that I was able to follow along in my Bible. The third concept of Staying constructive talks and showed examples of how edification and it not being about us, would transpire into what we pursued, not simply what we talked about. The fourth principle of staying challenged explained what the purpose of being diligent was all about. He went on to talk about Diligence in a way describing the priorities, possibilities and examples of what it was. The fifth principle described how it is important to stay connected to one another, and what the incentives would be if you did so. The sixth principle described how to stay centered on God, by setting our hearts and minds on Him. The seventh principle of staying confident in this crazy world, and again gave Biblical example to follow. The last few principles of staying consistent, staying committed, and staying convinced showed me the possibilites and the predicted outcome of those who followed God’s laws and embraced his love. This was a very good, well written, easy to understand book and I would recommend it to a new christian as well as a mature christian.
