These trumpets are written as continuing studies for those

who have completed The Age of Reason Bible study – those who

already know and understand the material covered in AOR.

 

 

 

The TRUMPET ARCHIVES contain edifying and informative essays. They are not part of the War College curriculum because, even though all edifying material contributes to our growth and therefore to the war effort, these trumpets are not intended to help Bible-believing warriors in particular, they’re intended to help Bible-believing Christians in general.

 

All essays contain the kind of Scripture-based material that glorifies God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that feeds, encourages, and challenges Bible believers who have ears that hear and who appreciate and identify with the kind of straight-talking, unpretentious dialog that horrifies tradition-bound politically-correct parade-ground pewsters, preachers, and theologians. These essays are for you comrades whose very real faith in, and love and respect for the living God who reveals Himself via the inerrant, written, literal, living words in His Holy Bible make you increasingly aware of the fact that you’re members of an elite, very small and ever-shrinking army; you truly are strangers and pilgrims on the earth who long for a better country, that is, an heavenly...and therefore God is not ashamed to be called your God.

 

I may add to, revise, or delete War College and Trumpet Archive essays at any time.

All trumpets are available as PDF downloads.
