Jacob I have loved

JACOB HAVE I LOVED: Short Messages on the life Of Jacob (by Neville Holmes)


What authority do I have to write a book containing short messages on the life of Jacob?

I was called by God to serve Him in the lands of the Bible and after six years of study I arrived with my wife in those lands. We spent our first year in the land of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan where we studied Arabic at the George Kelsie school of Arabic to help those called by God to serve in the Arab world. We were taught verses and songs in Arabic.

How to become a Christian

This simple, yet profound, question is the most important question that can be asked. "How can I be saved?" deals with where we will spend eternity after our lives in this world are over. There is no more important issue than our eternal destiny. Thankfully, the Bible is abundantly clear on how a person can be saved. The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" (Acts 16 verse 30) Paul and Silas responded, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved" (Acts 16 verse 31).
