Description
"God's Secret Plan For the Salvation of Mankind" was written with the intention of providing the reader with a panoramic view of God's eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord. Beginning in the timelessness of eternity past, and continuing into the endlessness of eternity future, each historic age is thoroughly examined as the details concerning the outworking of God's secret plan are progressively made known to both men and angels. Throughout the book, the redemption that is in Christ Jesus is of primary importance. This, however, only stands to reason, for without his finished and all-sufficient work at the cross of Calvary, there could have been no completion of God's secret plan of salvation and reclamation. Without Christ's blood as the fully satisfying once-for-all payment for all the sins of the world, there would have been no possibility of salvation for mankind. Neither would there be any possibility of God reclaiming that which rightfully belongs to him, for there would be no saved individuals with which to reclaim it. Satan would remain in control for eternity because there would be no Remnant of Israel to reclaim the Earth and no Body of Christ to reclaim the Heavens. From the onset of the study, the differences between God's program for the nation of Israel and his program for the Body of Christ are brought to light and diligently compared. The importance of this cannot be overstated, for it is only when the differences between these two programs are recognized and respected that doctrinal confusion is eliminated. Though Christ provides salvation for both the nation of Israel and the Body of Christ, their programs are entirely different. Only by rightly dividing the word of truth is the Bible student able to see these differences, and only then does the Bible begin to make sense from cover to cover. "God's Secret Plan For the Salvation of Mankind" was written to be utilized as a Bible study, for either individuals or groups. God's eternal purpose in Christ Jesus our Lord, the secret plan that was already in God's mind before the foundation of the world, the study's focus, while the Mystery, revealed to the apostle Paul by the ascended Lord Jesus Christ, forms the doctrinal basis. The doctrines of our salvation, including reconciliation, justification, and sanctification, are examined in detail.
About the author
Nick Bratkovich is a life-long student of the Bible. Early in his walk with the Lord, he was very fortunate to have discovered for himself what the apostle Paul refers to as "the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery" (Rom 16:25). It had a profound effect on his spiritual life, and to this day his ministry is "to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery" (Eph 3:9). From a theological standpoint, he holds to Mid-Acts, Pauline dispensationalism (Eph 3:6), while endeavoring to rightly divide the word of truth (2 Tim 2:15). It wasn't until recently, however, that he was inspired to combine his love for the Scriptures with his engineering background, for the purpose of developing a new and unique method of Bible study incorporating the use of schematic diagrams as visual aids. The result was "God's Secret Plan for the Salvation of Mankind", which provides the student with a panoramic view of God's "eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Eph 3:11), from the timelessness of eternity past to the infinity of eternity future. Nick and his wife Nancy live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They have been blessed with three children and two grandchildren, all living in Oklahoma and Texas.
