GOD'S PLAN WITH MEN

by

T. T. MARTIN, Evangelist

"For every sentence, clause and word, That's not inlaid with thee, my Lord, Forgive me, God! and blot each line Out of my book that is not thine. But if, 'mongst all, thou find'st here one Worthy thy benediction, That one of all the rest shall be The glory of my work and me."

PREFACE

Not new truths, but old truths properly emphasized, is one of the great needs of our times and of all times. The object of this book is not to start something new, but to specially emphasize some old truths and their relations to each other. The aim of the book is to help two classes: those who are seeking to be saved, and those who are already saved; the one, by showing simply and plainly God's way of salvation; the other, by showing simply God's way of dealing with men after they are saved. The author hopes, moreover, that the book may be of some special help to honest sceptics. For this purpose, the Introduction is addressed to them; and the hope is cherished that Chapter I will aid in disarming prejudice against God and the Bible; for while the Bible's teaching of degrees of punishment in Hell does not detract from the horrors of future punishment, but rather adds thereto, it effectually does away with the charge of the injustice of future punishment.

The enquirer and young convert may omit the parts marked "For Further Study" at the close of each chapter and not lose connection. These are added for Bible students who wish to go further into the subject treated.

And now, the author lays the book at the Master's feet and prays His blessings upon it, that it may be a blessing to those who read it.

INTRODUCTION

"Come now and let us reason together , saith the Lord." Isaiah.

"If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from my self." Jesus.

"And ye shall seek me and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart ." Jeremiah.

"Then shall we know if we follow on to know the Lord." Hosea.

This work is not written for sceptics; yet while preparing to write for the benefit of others than sceptics, the author's heart has gone out toward that large class of his fellow men who are sceptical; who, from different causes, have been led to doubt or deny the Bible's being a revelation from God; and he has yearned to say something that would at least arouse the attention of this class sufficiently to cause them to give an earnest investigation, or re investigation, to the question. The bare possibilities that there is a Hell and a Heaven, that the soul can never cease to exist, and that Jesus is the real Saviour, are enough to cause every doubting one to give the most earnest consideration to any evidence bearing on these questions, and to undertake the most careful investigation of anything that promises to lead to certainty...
