Rediscovering God's Plan for Mankind
One need only look around at the world today in wonder, Nia Redmon explores the events that have subtly led mankind away from God’s sovereign purpose and design in her book Rediscovering God’s Plan for Mankind: “For I Know the Plans I Have for You” (Jeremiah 29:11). Her book links specific events in world and church histories, and their impact on the formation of Christianity as it exists today. More
God’s Word Provides Readers With a Distinct Sense of Purpose
Does your life have purpose? From where does that purpose originate—from mankind? Or from God? Nia Redmon addresses these questions, Rediscovering God’s Plan for Mankind: “For I Know the Plans I Have for You” (Jeremiah 29:11). She offers a provocative look at how historic world and religious events have impacted man’s perception of God’s Word; the formalization of Christianity as it is known today, and mankind’s movement away from God’s original plan for the human race.
Drawing upon decades of life experience and religious research, Redmon explains that the purpose of the book is to bring you to the realization that no matter what local assembly you attend, a personal and intimate understanding of God’s sovereign will is critical for spiritual growth and development. She based the book’s title on Jeremiah 29:11, which prophesies the 70-year exile of the Israelites in Babylon. Although the situation may not have seemed like a good one for the people of Israel, it was still part of God’s purposeful plan. Embracing God’s purpose, Redmon affirms, is the cornerstone of our lives.
The author has a no-nonsense style that speaks directly to her readers. In this book, we will delve deeply into the Scriptures to examine God’s plans and purpose for mankind. God is the Originator of purpose and has designed His plans in a manner that will bring His purpose to fruition.”
The book is divided into four sections, each of which emphasizes a critical aspect of God’s Sovereign plan.
Part I highlights the attributes of kings, but most importantly the Heavenly King—The God, of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. A king’s word is law and stands unchangeable except by Him, Redmon reminds us. Examination of scriptures that describe God and His use of different individuals for accomplishing His plans is found here, as well as an exploration of the words plan and purpose, and their mutual dependence.
Part II describes the history of the church, including what is outlined in the Scriptures as God’s plan, what this has developed into, how it came about, and how we get back to God’s original intent.
Part III reviews the subject of holiness, both as a lifestyle and requirement in order to see God. It is a topic that seems to have been forgotten in Christianity. Holiness is not defined by the clothes a person wears or a particular denomination.
Part IV covers the law, and what does and doesn’t apply to Believers. Comparison is made between God’s Law and human or Christian tradition. This section examines the purpose of the Law of God. This Scripture-laden section also revisits the teachings of Jesus and Paul.
Rediscovering God’s Plan for Mankind will appeal not only to Christian readers who are interested in growing in their lives and in their faith, but it also speaks to all people who are searching for purpose in their lives. In the midst of our troubled world, it is an ideal gift that will remind friends and family of the true nature of God’s message.
