This is for anyone who is seeking for the Truth. For you who are seeking answers to questions as "why is the world the way it is" or "why am I the way I am?" For you who may feel confused or helpless in this world. For anyone who is disillusioned by today's religion. It is encouragement for us Believers. We are attempting to present who God really is. We all have problems & God our maker through Jesus Christ has the answers for us. God is real, He is not far away as it may seem. God is in control and he has a plan for you. If you have doubts and fears; honestly seek God through Jesus Christ. He is more than able to reveal himself to you. He loves us very much, but he will in no way excuse us if we reject him & refuse to come to him. Read this, test & research it. Pray that God will reveal the Truth to you & that you will respond to his calling and enter into a loving Grace relationship with him by faith. Go through the different "headings" and see what can help you. Note the xcobu section is for former and present members of the church of bible understanding; of which I also was part of, but which turned out to be an abusive church.
For by GRACE you are SAVED, throughFAITH, and this is not of yourselves; it is the GIFT of GOD, not of WORKS,lest any man should boast!
For the SAVING GRACE of GOD appeared to all men,INSTRUCTING us that havingDENIED
UNGODLINESS andWORLDLY LUSTS,
we should liveDISCREETLY andRIGHTEOUSLYand GODLY in the present age, looking for the BLESSED HOPE and appearance of the glory of our great God and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, who gave himself on our behalf, that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify a special people for his own possession, zealous for good works.
came into the world to save Sinners! 1 Timothy 1:15
There is no greater joy then being a Believer, knowing that God loves you and has called you to a Grace relationship with him. And to have confidence and assurance that our sins are forgiven us. Watching God provide for you, change you from one degree of glory to another, preserving you through tests and temptations and keeping you from the evil one in the meantime and preparing you for eternal glory! Praise God!
Read this website, pray on it and take it all in! If you are searching; maybe start in Seek & in Good News. If you are a new Believer; start with Beginner &Bible Study. Also check out Grace & Faith! Are you a "Veteran" of the christian life? Then begin at Believer,
Bible Study, Grace + Faith along with the rest of the headings....
If you are/were part of Cobu or the Young Sheep House in Brooklyn NY at some time in your life or you are curious about the author, start with Me/Xcobu/ysh.Under the God heading, I explore a little about the nature of our Lord and what's commonly called the Trinity. In Christian Authors, I present the Brothers, who's life and work is an inspiration to me and to many Believers and hopefully to you also. In the Home heading you will find life lessons and issues, and also tracts and tracts in other languages (German, Spanish, French and Creole) Of course it's totally up to each of you how you want to proceed. Keep coming back, as I continually update and write new things as our heavenly Father leads me. And may you be strengthened to do God's will and encouraged to draw closer to our Lord and Savior and remain safe in his care!
Test all things and only believe and accept what the Lord himself confirms to you by the Holy Spirit and the scriptures. We do not want any one to stand before our Lord and Savior on the last day and try to tell Him that they believed what everybody else believed. You are way too important, the destination way too amazing, the alternative way too awful, so please test all things and make sure for yourself.Don't accept things just because everyone else believes it, or someone told you.
If there is any one looking for a mentor or a guiding light,or a brother to be in fellowship with; I would very much love to be mentoring you or just share fellowship in Christ with you!
Therefore Jesus said; My sheep hear my voice & I know them & they follow me. I give them eternal life & they shall never perish & no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27&28
This website does not endorse or promote any certain religion or church, neither are we representing any particular church or organisation; we are just trying to share what the Lord himself has revealed to us and what is backed up by the scriptures for the encouragement of any honest seeker and believer! You can read what we believe in the "Home" section.Please test all things for yourself and settle only for the truth!
For if while being enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life;
But Law came in besides, that the deviation might abound. But where sin abounded, GRACE MUCH MORE ABOUNDED,
that as sin ruled in death, so also GRACE MIGHT RULE through righteousness to everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For questions, suggestions or any sort of communication, even to just say "hello",

Bible quotes will either be from the KJ3 interlinear Bible (J.P. Green) or the ESV. We encourage all to read the Bible, whichever version you are comfortable with. And we pray that you will keep God's word in a good and honest heart.
Jesus Christ, because of the suffering of death was made a little less than the angels, so that by the grace of God He might taste of death for all.
Are you a sinner? I would encourage you to believe that God’s Grace is ordained for such a one as you are! C. H. SPURGEON
But God demonstrates his love to us in that we being yet sinners, Christ died for us! Romans 5:8
About which salvation the prophets sought out and searched out, prophesying concerning the GRACE for you, Peter 1:10
For we yet being without strength, in due time Christ died for ungodly ones.
Are you one of God's sheep?
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16&17
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
