2018 Film Contest
"My Story, My Mission"

Adventist Book Centre
"40 Days - Prayers & Devotions on God's End-Time Church"

God’s warning to Laodicea is so vitally important that those who do not heed His warning and counsel will remain in their spiritually defective condition and will not be ready for Christ’s second coming. 

There is no greater love seen anywhere in the universe than the love God has shown by giving of Himself in the person of Jesus Christ for the salvation of His church. The story of God and His church is the greatest love story ever told. It will be the joy and song of the redeemed throughout eternity.

God’s warning message to Laodicea, His end-time church, has special application to every Christian today. The church was established when God came to this earth in the person of Jesus Christ, and is referred to as the “body of Christ” and the “bride of Christ.” Hence, the relationship between God and His church is of utmost importance to Him.

“Enfeebled and defective as it may appear, the church is the one object upon which God bestows in a special sense His supreme regard. It is the theater of His grace, in which He delights to reveal His power to transform hearts” (Acts of the Apostles, 12)

In this 40-day study, you will learn the characteristics of God’s last-day church and its true condition from God’s point of view. You will reach a better understanding of God’s warning to Laodicea and His solution for Laodicean Christians. And, because the baptism of the Holy Spirit is so vital to our personal spiritual growth and our witness to others, you will be challenged every day to ask God for the indwelling of His Spirit.
Regular Price: $17.99
Pre/Post Camp Sale Price: $16.47
