No Room for Compromise: A Light In Darkness, Volume Two
In No Room for Compromise: Christ’s Message to Today’s Church, Rick Renner sets forth his most prophetic book to date. With a sobering charge to Christian leadership to stand up for faith in Christ — regardless of the price required to proclaim it in its purest form — Renner’s message is a clarion call: Winds of opposition against the Church are gathering. As pagan influences continue to increase in these last days, Christianity will once again become completely out of sync with the times with its message that Christ alone is the way to the Father.
The Bible is clear that at the end of the age, the spiritual hurricane of persecution that struck the Early Church will once again slam against society with devastating consequences. God has always had His remnant who would not bow to external pressures. In these final hours of the Church Age, He will have a remnant again. Will you be among them?
A Light In Darkness, Volume One
Step into the world of the First Century Church as Rick Renner creates a panoramic experience of unsurpassed detail to transport you into the ancient lands of the seven churches of Asia Minor. Within the context of this fascinating — and, at times, shocking — historical backdrop, Rick outlines challenges early believers faced in taking the Gospel to a pagan world. After presenting a riveting account of the apostle John’s vision of the exalted Christ on the Isle of Patmos, Rick leads you in this first volume through an in-depth study of Jesus’ messages to the churches of Ephesus and Smyrna — profoundly relevant messages that still resonate for His Church today. Faced with similar daunting challenges experienced by early believers, the modern Church must give urgent heed to what the Holy Spirit is saying in order to be equipped for the end of this age.

Every God-given dream has a significant purpose, leading ultimately to a specific destination. That’s why dream thieves show up early and repeatedly along your journey to shift your focus from opportunities to obstacles.

You must fulfill your unique purpose in life by walking in your God-ordained calling. Too many abandoned dreams litter the road of life. Don’t let your dream be one of them.
