       Before beginning this study, I would first like to thank you for taking the time to read this book. I do not come to you as a professional writer, but as one compelled by the inspiration of God to write about a most important issue of our time: “A lack of repentance.

       When reading this book you will realize why God is making his final call to mankind. Please do not think this will be some boring book about a simple subject. I also would like to forewarn you that this book can cause a great deal of spiritual attention from the Devil and demons—who has used great subtleness to blind many believers regarding this area under discussion.

       The church is at a defining time in human history; and yet, there is no clear voice to cry out against the sinful behaviors of our time. We have become so preoccupied with life and the problems we face within our families, jobs, and even the church: that we are totally missing our true purpose for being on the earth (we are instructed to use the world, not to abuse it).

       When first introduced to God, I was told that I only needed to be water baptized to be saved.  Can you believe a church could build its entire doctrine of salvation on this one point so that countless millions think water baptism is the only way to be saved? However, there are also those who believe the only way to be saved is to accept “by faith” what Jesus did on the cross for you. Furthermore, another well-known teaching is that the new birth is by faith. Although the above statements are true, these answers alone sometimes fail to disclose the full truth.

       Please let me explain. During the course of my pastoral ministry, I have either seen or personally baptized many people claiming salvation by faith, but their actions said otherwise: there were no evidence of progressive godly changes in their lives. They were either hypocritical or boldly living ungodly lives while claiming to be

members of a church; some have openly returned to the world and died in this unconverted state (2 Peter 2:20-22). Now I ask you: “Is this true faith, one that does not provide any visible evidence of salvation?” (James 2:17-20). 

       Now let’s examine the scriptural truth that liberates the human soul from spiritual bondage. As you journey through this book, it will uplift your spirits and lighten your spiritual loads and burdens. I personally guarantee that you are being set up for a blessing, which will forever change your relationship with the heavenly Father.

       In this book, I would like to challenge you to take a fresh look at your salvation by God’s grace through faith (Eph. 2:8) by way of the word “Repent” (Acts 20:21; 26:20). Before you can take one step toward God you must repent. Not one prayer will be heard without repentance, not one sacrifice will be accepted without it, and all your worship will be worthless and vain until you grasp it. How can this one thing hinder you from eternal life when you’ve done everything else? Why has God made himself unapproachable to the unrepentant sinners and Christians? You will receive the answer to these questions and more.
