Yes, this book is written in honor and tribute to one of the foremost apologists who lived for Christ Jesus - Reverend Ravi Zacharias, who went home to be with the LORD just several hours before this author began on this book, on the 19 th of May 2020.
Just as our Master Jesus came, laid down His Life, and was resurrected and ascended to Heaven, so too did this child of God, Ravi Zacharias come down in 1946, and lived a life for Jesus, laid down his life for Him, and with his passing on a few hours ago, Ravi Zacharias soul rose up to Heaven, resurrected by the same Spirit of God who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead.
This book is written as the Holy Spirit directs me to speak and write, for the Word has promised to us, in His Word, and I quote in Mark 13:11:
“But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.”
The same assurance is given in Matthew 10:19-20:
“But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
Our Master also told us that we will suffer the same if not more persecution, for as they persecute and ‘killed’ our Lord, they may do the same to us.
John 15:20 and other verses reminded us:
“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.”
The Gospel of the Good News about Jesus, and the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, Mark and John speak forth the truth, and need not be defend, for the Truth speaks for itself. Jesus is the Walking and Living Truth, the Way and the Life.
We who share the truth, share it from our hearts with love and peace, so that the hearer may receive the same love and peace, through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
