The contents of this booklet is based and built on a series Pastor Dave Strem preached during April 2004.  It is called: The Last Days of Jesus’ Earthly Ministry: The Triumphal Entry, Calvary, Resurrection, and Ascension.  James W. Skeen is the contributing editor.

The goal of converting the messages into written form is to give the truths contained within a more durable form. Written form also allows the reader more time to reflect, ponder, and do personal research.  This is difficult to accomplish amid a flowing sermon.  Our prayer is that the Holy Spirit will use this medium to continue to impact hearts and lives.

Malachi teaches us what kind of attitude God is looking for in His people.  Malachi is the last book of the Old Testament.  It is God’s last words of special revelation until New Testament times.  After all the laws, battles, and hardships are endured, listen to what he says concerning those who love and care about God.

“Then those who feared the Lord spoke with each other, and the Lord listened to what they said.  In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and loved to think about him.  ‘They will be my people,’ says the Lord Almighty.  ‘On the day when I act, they will be my own special treasure.  I will spare them as a father spares an obedient and dutiful child.’” (3:16-17)

Good Christian literature helps us to think about, or contemplate, God.  And that is the ultimate goal of this booklet.  Trinity Evangelical Free Church wants you to “Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.”  We hope and pray that the lessons contained within this booklet will help you in that noble endeavor.

Please receive this booklet in the humble spirit in which it is given.  Read, learn, and go forth with God!

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever – 2 Peter 3:18
