➤ CHART Diagram —A strange looking diagram of most mysterious things. A spiritual map of the states, journeys, and portals of your soul.
Core lessons on the soul’s journeys
➤ States of the Soul —There are seven possible states in which a soul can exist. The first three are changeable states in this world. The other four states are unchangeable and out of this world.
➤ Beware Which Gate You Enter —There are six gateways or portals for your soul. When a soul journeys from one state to another, it passes through one of these gateways. Each portal is a very significant event. You have no choice but to go through three of these gates. Two other gates you should choose not to enter. If you foolishly enter by those gates, the sixth gate is your only way of escape.
➤ Journeys by the Soul —Outlines the twelve possible journeys by the human soul. This chart provides you with a simple introductory study which you can then follow up using the links to more detailed lessons.
➤ Three Deaths of the Soul —When we speak of death we are usually thinking of the death of the physical body. However, there are also three spiritual deaths. Two are bad and one is good
Paths of Grace Trilogy
➤ The Perfect Path —1st of a trilogy. We trace the ideal path that the soul should take. God has provided this path out of his kindness, goodness, and love.
➤ The Path Jesus Walked —2nd of a trilogy. One special human being walked the ideal path, the perfect path that every soul should take. Jesus set us an example in the path he followed.
➤ Righteous Steps —3rd of trilogy. We examine the steps on that path that leads to eternal life. Each step involves something that we should have done, and would have done, had we walked the perfect path. These steps are therefore also essential in the corrective path of conversion.
