Through a careful study of Scripture and the Spirit of Prophecy, As He Is examines subjects such as the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the plagues of Egypt, Israel’s use of the sword, the final fires of destruction, and much more, thus reconciling the issue of the supposed contradictions found in the character of God as Satan proposes. The rebellion of sin will not be ended until the accusations regarding God’s character and government are brought to a close through God’s people here in earth’s theater.
Many people simultaneously hold two separate pictures of God. They have a “thunder and lightning” view of the Old Testament God of justice, whereas in the New Testament, God is seen as the bearer of mercy, personified in the gentle Lamb, Jesus. But Jesus came to show us the Father; therefore, we are called to cease all double-mindedness about who God is—He must be the same yesterday, today, and forever. God is one in character, and He looks just like Jesus! Justice is not sacrificed in Christ, but it is not served according to the thoughts and ways of humanity. At last it will be seen by all that His justice is mercy.

This book really challenges your way of thinking. It forces you to reevaluate your preconceived ideas on God's character and ask questions you may never have thought to ask yourself. It is easy to follow the author with the study questions at the beginning of each chapter. "As He Is" is a well written book and I highly recommend It! Get the book! Its worth every penny!

Modern science has shown that 90-100% of our illnesses and diseases begin with the activity of our mind. In order to have health more abundantly we must have the mind of Christ. (Phil. 2:5). As He Is has proven to be the grandest and most clear instruction regarding the healing knowledge of God that I have found in my 60 years. “To know God is life eternal” John 17:3 We can rise no higher than our concept of who God is...So as you read this book, you can become that new creature in Christ; with new health, a new mind, and a new, closer experience in the presence of, and therefore the reflection of, the character of God.

God has not arbitrarily set a time for His second coming, but rather He is waiting for the final demonstration of the complete victory over sin in His people, through His Spirit. The Body of Christ must be pure and clean, as the Head of the Body is pure and clean. If we are to share His throne then we must be like Him. This can only happen when we have a clear understanding of His character. This is what makes the subject of this book vitally important to comprehend. As He Is strives to answer through the inspired Word, in a logical and clear manner, many of the questions that man has asked over the years about the acts and character of God.
