On October 31, 1517 (allegedly), Martin Luther nailed his “95 Theses” to the door of his home church in Wittenberg, Germany. This event launched the Protestant or Great Reformation. Unfortunately, that Reformation stopped far short, addressing only one of the two great works of the Messiah-that of salvation. It totally ignored Jesus’ everlasting kingdom-his central teaching.
Therefore, on this 500th Anniversary in 2017, wouldn’t it be just like God to launch The Next Great Reformation? In this booklet you will discover:
/ Why the central teaching of Jesus is no longer central of most of his Church
/ Why Jesus’ kingdom is caught up in conflict and confusion.
/ A historical comparison between 1517 and 2017
/ Nailing of these “96 New Theses” for discussion and debate.
/ How we Christians could turn the world upside down again.
/ “For such a time as this.”
“It’s time to rise up. It’s time for reformation. The next great awakening…”

Divine Perfection in Two Creations:
The God of the Bible is the God of order and design. Everything He created He did so with a plan, purpose, timeframe, and mathematical precision. For those who have eyes to see, his guiding hand is evident in every part of his two creations—from macro to micro, the largest to the smallest. This attribute of God has been called the stamp or fingerprint of divinity. We chose to call it simply divine perfection.
The different creations spoken of in the Bible are: 1) the physical creation; 2) the redemptive creation (Isa. 51:15-16 KJV). The first is composed of atoms and molecules. The second is comprised of covenants. Both dramatically manifest divine perfection. Unfortunately, most Christians and their churches deny this attribute of divine perfection in the redemptive creation. They claim that God’s “appointed time of the end” has been “delayed.” Critics claim it has proved “false.” But who should we believe—God and his divinely inspired Word or uninspired Christians?
What Scripture Says:
Seven hundred years before Christ, the God of the Bible inspired the ancient prophet Habakkuk to write: “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay” (Hab. 2:3). One century later, God gave another Hebrew prophet, Daniel, the two most spectacular and explicit time prophecies ever given to humankind. Like bookends, these two prophetic time periods pinpointed and bracketed the exact time in human history for the coming of the Messiah to earth and Habakkuk’s “appointed time . . . of the end.” It all happened, right on time, certainly came, and came with a plan, purpose, timeframe, and mathematical precision. That’s divine perfection! continue reading…
