Here are just a few Old Testament and New Testament promises:
Who is a God like unto thee, that... retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy. —Micah 7:18
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. —Jeremiah 31:34
And Jesus Himself also says in the New Testament... Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme. —Mark 3:28
As the old saying goes — "Now, ain't that good news?"
Hopefully, you are enjoying this page. If so, and if you consider this Pastel Portrait Secrets website as a whole and in its entirety - not just this isolated Christian webpage - to have value and merit, then please make a donation at our donation page,
Whether you call our donation page a virtual "collection plate," a cyber "Judas box," or whatever your fancy, just know that the proceeds will help keep this website alive and active. Also know that while each of the Bible Student ecclesias around the globe operates as a separate and distinct non-profit Christian organization and while neither Bible Student group solicits funds, I will personally see to it that a portion of your donation to my website will go towards our Bible Student worldwide outreach ministry in general.
If you want to also give to our Bible Students Africa ministry in particular, then please refer to the information I provide at the end of the video, above. Thank you.
Be it known that originally I created a longer version of the video and converted it to dvd format to give as a gift to Sr. Emelia and to her alone. Meaning that the Bible Students Committee for Africa did not authorize me to produce it or post it online. And unless any member of the committee happens to become aware of this page, they do not even know of the video's existence. So, do not blame them for the poor image quality and whatnot.
That disclaimer being said, peace be unto you, be of good cheer, and may the Lord add His blessings.

To us the Scriptures clearly teach:
THAT THE CHURCH IS “THE TEMPLE” OF THE LIVING GOD — peculiarly ‘his workmanship’; that its construction has been in progress throughout the Gospel Age—ever since Christ became the world’s Redeemer and chief ‘corner stone’ of this temple, through which, when finished, God’s blessings shall come ‘to all people’, and they find access to him.—I Cor. 3:16; Eph. 2:20-22; Gen. 28:14; Gal. 3:29
THAT MEANTIME THE CHISELING, SHAPING, AND POLISHING of consecrated believers in Christ’s atonement for sin progresses, and when the last of these ‘living stones’, ‘elect and precious’, shall have been made ready, the great Master Workman will bring all together in the first resurrection; and the temple shall be filled with his glory, and be the meeting place between God and men throughout the Millennium.—Rev. 15:5-8
THAT THE BASIS OF HOPE FOR THE CHURCH AND THE WORLD lies in the fact that ‘Jesus Christ, by the grace of God, tasted death for every man’, “a ransom for all,” and will be “the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world,” “in due time.”—Heb. 2:9; John 1:9; I Tim. 2:5,6
THAT THE HOPE OF THE CHURCH is that she may be like her Lord, “see him as he is,” be a ‘partaker of the divine nature’, and share his glory as his joint-heir.—I John 3:2; John 17:24; Rom. 8:17; II Pet. 1:4
THAT THE PRESENT MISSION OF THE CHURCH is the perfecting of the saints for the future work of service; to develop in herself every grace; to be God’s witness to the world; and to prepare to be the kings and priests in the next age.—Eph. 4:12; Matt. 24:14; Rev. 1:6, 20:6
THAT THE HOPE FOR THE WORLD lies in the blessings of knowledge and opportunity to be brought to all by Christ’s Millennial Kingdom—the restitution of all that was lost in Adam, to all the willing and obedient, at the hands of their Redeemer and his glorified church—when all the willfully wicked will be destroyed.—Acts 3:19-23; Isa. 35
