We are LOVING this book as a compliment to our studies of Ancient Civilizations this year.
From Pages of History, Volume 1: Secrets of the Ancients by Veritas Press:
“The way man comes to God for salvation has also always been the same – by grace through faith. Old Testament saints looked forward to the promise of Christ and believed it. We look backward to the accomplished work of the cross and we believe,” explained the dove, but Lance still didn’t comprehend. James decided a modern day example would be the best way to get it across to him.
“It’s like an adult who has to take twenty children to the movies. He puts ten of them in the front of the line and when they get to the ticket window they say that the adult is going to pay. The adult then pays for all twenty children. When asked for their money the ten children at the end of the line say, ‘He’s already paid for us.’ You see, esus paid for all twenty no matter where they are in line. Old Testament saints looked ahead and said, ‘He is going too pay.’ All those who come after the finished work of Christ on the cross look back and say, ‘He’s already paid for us.’ So, Old Testament saints and New Testament saints are saved in the same way – by grace through faith. God never changed the plan.”
