With its message of God's love for His bride and believers' triumph in Christ, Destined for the Throne
has been a rousing call to prayer for thousands. God's eternal purpose, writes Paul Billheimer (Don't Waste Your Sorrows
), has been the preparation and training of an eternal companion for His Son: the Bride of Christ. This preparation takes place as believers engage in spiritual warfare, and as they exercise believing prayer. God has chosen to work in the world through His children's prayers; Christians need prayer in order to practice for their heavenly destiny.
First published nearly 30 years ago, Destined for the Throne continues to train believers for their heavenly destiny. God's eternal purpose, Billheimer says, has been the preparation of an eternal companion for His Son. This preparation takes place as Christians engage in spiritual warfare and practice believing prayer. "[A] thorough presentation of God's total purpose and destiny for the church...satisfying and demanding," said Norman Grubb, former International Director of WEC.
Paul E. Billheimer and his wife began a tent ministry in Anderson, Indiana, in 1936 that grew to include a Bible institute, a Christian high school, a Christian day school, and, in 1957, a Christian television station. His books include Don't Waste Your Sorrows, Love Covers, Destined to Overcome, and Destined for the Cross. He and his wife spent their later years working with Trinity Broadcasting Network. They were married for 63 years and raised three children. Paul Billheimer passed away in 1984.
