I was waiting for a friend to finish his grocery shopping when I spotted a tent sale. Every woman loves tent sales. Well I went in and found it was all books. So I browsed and came across your book, "The Revelation of Truth". I purchased it, took it home and read it. It is one of the most heart compelling books I have ever read.
I have a friend at work that is constantly at odds with her spouse. Her father is a Minister here in Virginia and she was familiar with your Church. Well, I went the following weekend to the same tent sale, thank God it was still there, and purchased two more copies. I gave one to my friend for her and her spouse to read. I thought this might bring them closer. She says they sit and discuss the book together. I'm praying this book will open their eyes to the reality of life with God.
Last weekend I was on my way to see my daughter in the hospital in San Antonio, Texas. While on the plane, a lady asked to see the book I was reading. She enjoyed the first few pages so much and said she was going to go purchase it. Having read the chapter on "Age of Conscience" I knew if I didn't give her the extra copy I was carrying in my bag to give to my sister, I was not going to feel at ease the rest of the trip. So, I gave her the extra copy I had. It made me feel better knowing how thankful she was. However, when I got home and my sister happened to see my book on the table, she began to read it and asked to borrow it. Again I was reminded of that chapter...I told her my plans were to bring her a copy but I gave it to a lady I met on the plane. I felt so bad because I wanted to surprise my sister with a copy. I still felt guilty because I didn't want to part with my copy and only because I highlighted several sections of the book. I did promise I would send her one as soon as I got back.
Well I carry this book with me because I like to refer back to it periodically. I went to go see my doctor and he too noticed the book. He said he would like to read it. I mentioned to him what had happened with my sister's book. I didn't tell him, but when I go get a copy for my sister I plan to pick up one for him as well. After our visit he said the kindest thing that anyone has ever said to me. He said "Diane, you're planting the seed". I never looked at it that way. I was just so taken by the context of the book that I wanted to share it with friends and family.
I do not claim to be a saint...the Lord knows I am not. Like many I have suffered and sinned and I wish I could say I will sin no more. But I do know the Lord has something good in store for me...I feel He has already revealed it to me. But like many, I cover my ears at times and don't want to listen because I know what it is I have to do. I don't fear death because my faith is strong. I thank Him everyday for my faith and pray that I will be among the chosen ones to spend eternity in His devine presence. I look forward to the day that John the Revelator wrote of: "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." (Rev. 21:4 NKJV).
I sincerely thank you for sharing this wonderful gift of knowledge with me and the world. It has brought to me a whole new outlook on my life. Mil Gracias...
