Publisher's Description

My heart sank within me. Something was VERY wrong My heart profoundly sank into my innermost being. It was then I knew in my heart of hearts that this insight was NOT given to me to judge anyone, but to HELP every called-out-one safely into the Kingdom of God. I wanted to somehow spiritually paint the portrait of a Christian in order that all who professed to be Christians would then be able to examine themselves to see if they could recognize the Spirit of Jesus Christ within themselves. And, God forbid, if they failed the test, just maybe, if they had ears to hear, they could then turn their mere Christian profession into a truly born-again experience. With this in mind, the title I have given to this book is: "The Portrait of a Christian." The title comes from the knowledge that the best way to warn (admonish) of a fault is to expose the genuine-to expose the Spirit behind the Holy Scriptures so you can examine yourself to see if you recognize the Spirit of Jesus Christ (The Word) in you. This is one examination that ALL professing Christians must pass; to fail this examination has eternal infernal consequences.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have been a born-again Christian for more than thirty years. I am not affiliated with any organization, nor a denomination. I, like Paul in Philippians 3:7-8, "Counted all things lost in order that I may gain Christ." The past thirty plus years were used to know God and NOT for the study of religion. I truly counted all things as rubbish to gain the knowledge of Christ. My passion was single in focus; I wanted to know Christ Jesus, my Lord and Savior, and the God (Father) who sent Him. This has given me a love for all who love God and the truth, regardless of their affiliation. Therefore, I endeavor to minister to anyone who is willing to listen.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  As with the prophets of old, my heart breaks as I see so many – even within the Church at-large turn away from the faith and fall into apostasy. As it's written, the way is truly narrow to salvation and so few seem to find it. Therefore, this book endeavors to reach the more than seven billion people in this world with God's Gospel message - along with His admonishments and warnings. Yes, even if just a few are willing to listen; after all, that's the way it was with the prophets of old, yet God's heart of mercy demands His Gospel message and warnings to go out as He wishes for none to perish as His horrific judgment draws near.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  As with Paul in Galatians 1:1, "I am not sent from men, nor through the agency of man." As God's watchman, the only purpose for this book is the salvation of souls both within and outside the "Church" at-large. Therefore, this book stays focused on delivering a narrow message – a message that will be both thought provoking and challenging. A message that will cause people to examine themselves (2 Corinthians 13:5) to see if they're truly born-again with God's Holy Spirit from within – to a true and biblical salvation, a salvation that not only has temporal implications, but eternal implications as well. Messages that will also help people remain in the vine so they may be fruitful – yes, even a light which the world cannot put out.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  To God be the glory!

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  If you do buy a book for a friend or a loved one, and/or use the book in a Bible study, don’t be surprised if the Holy Spirit will challenge them – will provoke thought within them – will convict them, to where some will actually throw the book on the floor in a rage. (No, I’m not kidding.) But if this happens, please just ask them to prayerfully finish the book before they completely reject the message. Again, this will be due solely to the anointing of my calling as an end-time Watchman, so I have nothing to boast in: To God be the glory! Also, every penny of the royalties from this book is paid directly to Sopp Ministries to help with our expenses so we will be able to continue on with our work to warn the professing Christian, inasmuch as, the hour is so very late.
