Highly absorbing, fascinating, and even challenging, with prayer this book will change your life.
Through a careful study of Scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy, As He Is examines subjects such as the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the plagues of Egypt, Israel's use of the sword, the final fires of destruction, and much more, thus reconciling the issue of the supposed contradictions found in the character of God as Satan proposes. The rebellion of sin will not be ended until the accusations regarding God's character and government are brought to a close through God's people here in earth's theater.
Many people simultaneously hold two separate pictures of God. They have a "thunder and lightning" view of the Old Testament God of justice, whereas in the New Testament, God is seen as the bearer of mercy, personified in the gentle Lamb, Jesus. But Jesus came to show us the Father; therefore, we are called to cease all double-mindedness about who God is-He must be the same yesterday, today, and forever. God is one in character, and He looks just like Jesus! Justice is not sacrificed in Christ, but it is not served according to the thoughts and ways of humanity. At last it will be seen by all that His justice is mercy.
"Nothing in the world is more important or more necessary than to get the character of God right. We can fill libraries up with religious books, all being most interesting, but if they are not telling the truth about God, it is all vain and a waste of time and space. As He Is should be read carefully by everybody."
Herbert Edgar Douglass, ThD, Author of God at Risk
"God has not arbitrarily set a time for His second coming, but rather He is waiting for the final demonstration of the complete victory over sin in His people, through His Spirit. The Body of Christ must be pure and clean, as the Head of the Body is pure and clean. If we are to share His throne then we must be like Him. This can only happen when we have a clear understanding of His character. This is what makes the subject of this book vitally important to comprehend. As He Is strives to answer through the inspired Word, in a logical and clear manner, many of the questions that man has asked over the years about the acts and character of God."
Edward J. Rice, Head Elder, Lacombe Community Seventh-day Adventist Church
"As He Is presents God as One quite different from traditional notions while staying close to the inspired text. It does a superb job of bringing passages together that unveil a better picture of God than what may have been noticed before. Much of traditional picturing of God the Father is out of harmony with the clearly recorded character of Jesus in the Gospel account. It is fundamental to Christian faith that the Godhead be understood as being love, and love alone!... I would invite all believers in God to please consider the clues in the written word that lift Him up above some ancient ideas that do not harmonize with the light we have in Jesus Christ."
