THE FOUR-EPIC BIOGRAPHY-A FOUR-DIMENSIONAL STORY OF THE BELIEVER

WHAT I BELIEVE LENORA TEMPLE (CHARITY'S MOTHER) KNOWS KNOW IN HEAVEN TODAY.

^

PART ONE


In the case of every believer, there is a four-epic biography, a four-dimensional story, to be told about everyone who belongs in the kingdom of God.


The apostle Paul identifies those four great epics in II Thessalonians, chapter 2. Let me read what he says,


  • “We are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord.” Now, he’s writing to a church, a congregation-we don’t know how large that congregation was- but it was perhaps a hundred, perhaps a little more than that. He’s writing to a group of people and he basically describes their biography and it’s the same. He says,

  • “Brethren beloved, God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Now I know Lenora Temple was a minister's wife. Her husband Bob Temple, Sr. is a Fundamental KJV Baptist, pastor, preacher, minister, and Bible teacher, now for over forty plus years, and her son in law (that's me) is a minister. Today Lenora knows what her husband preached is true. And she will know that her son in law's doctrine of election is true too. So often Lenora would hear Bob and I speak about the wonderful work of God in creation, and in the wonderful gift of His Son Jesus Christ.


That before the foundation of the world, God had a plan, 2 Timothy 1:9 "before time began." when there were no angels and there were no humans, God the Father determined to give a love gift.

Part two later.

Viewing of Lenora will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Roger W. Davis Funeral Home in West Portsmouth, Ohio 1310 Third Street.

Thanks for all the e mails.
