The mission of Fourth Angel Ministries is to proclaim the "everlasting gospel" through books, seminars, sermons, Bible studies, thought papers, and radio and television programs. The ministry is dedicated to "the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12). Therefore, teaching material is also available to enable ministers and laity alike to present the great truths of God's Word in their local churches and around the world. Fourth Angel Ministries is consecrated to faithfully proclaiming the good news of the gospel, to being a channel through which the Holy Spirit may work to uplift the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to reveal God's love and will for all mankind, and to edify God's people, as we are "looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God" (2 Peter 3:12 NKJV).
Welcome to Fourth Angel Ministries!
Many today believe the Bible is very difficult to understand. They often feel only pastors, priests, or theologians can understand the sacred Scriptures. However, the Bible was not written for any particular group of people, but rather it was given for all people through all ages. God did not give mankind His word clothed in confusion and shrouded in uncertainty, but as a "light" to brighten our path (Psalm 119:105).
The reason many do not have a clear understanding of the Bible is they have been led to think it is not their privilege to understand what God has spoken through His word. The idea is disseminated that common people should not study the Bible for themselves, but that the minister or teacher should decide all matters of doctrine for them. Yet, God desires all classes of people to search the Scriptures for themselves. He has given reasoning powers to mankind, and by bringing our mental faculties into connection with the Word of God, the spiritual powers are awakened, and common people, as well as teachers and clergymen, may understand the word and will of God. He has given His word for all to investigate, and all may understand the word of God if they so desire.
Jesus prayed, "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth"(John 17:17). He also repeatedly referred to the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of truth and declared: "when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth" (John 16:13). Through the impartation of the Holy Spirit, we are to understand God's Word. The Lord opens the understanding of the true seeker of truth. The Holy Spirit enables the human mind to grasp the truths of God's word that they may learn the way to life.
