This week’s find: Christ Alone: Five Challenges Every Group Will Face (Searching Together) by Jon Zens
About the book: Just as physical families have to face difficulties, so every group of believers will face challenges in their life together. In Christ Alone, Jon Zens opens up five crucial areas that every group will wrestle with at some point in their journey. The first challenge—for Christ to be everything—is the first priority and the other four challenges flow out of it. How do we show that we trust Christ as our Leader? How can we deepen our relationships with one another? Do we define ourselves and find our identity in Christ, or in Adam? When problems arise will we let the love of Christ reign in our midst? Stephen Crosby concluded, “Do yourself a favor—use Christ Alone as a road map to help you and those you love avoid common pitfalls in the journey.”

Understanding the prophetic times we live in
During the morning hours of Tuesday, June 2, 2015, the Lord Jesus Christ instructed me to write this report. He called it a “report” because He wanted me to write it as a “report of imminent events” to those who wish to understand the prophetic times we live in. The aim of this report is to bring clarity and to counter confusion in the lives of many Christians regarding the end-times, especially regarding the prophetic time we live in at this moment. The Lord’s aim with this report is clear: Clarity will equip and enable God’s children to follow His vision for and in this time period we are living in now. It will enable them to report for duty. It will enable them to become mighty instruments in God’s hand. End-time ministry does not only mean that God is at work. It also means that we have some part to play in order to enable God to carry out His plans. This report will enable God’s children to stand up and be counted”.
