Here is an extract from the book:
On January 19, 2010 while Ghana was enjoying her usual atmosphere of peace and tranquility, suddenly, there was a rumor of imminent earthquakes. Within a twinkle of an eye the news had spread around the streets, corners and communities of our nation. Everybody was engulfed with the fear of death, loss of goods and property. Nobody found comfort anymore in the comfort of their homes. Most Christians left their homes and resolved to live in their church premises to escape the devastation of the earthquakes. Those believers did not realize that safety and protection from the troubles of life is not in any church building but in Jesus Christ and in Him alone.
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely, he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday” (Psalms 91:1-6).
These verses of scripture clearly explain the truth about the PLACE of safety and protection. There is a place called the SECRET PLACE of the Most High God. In that secret place, God provides safety, deliverance, protection, and security for those who trust in HIM. That SECRET PLACE is Jesus Christ who is the embodiment of truth (Psalms 91:4). David said, “God’s truth shall be his shield and buckler; that truth also represents God’s word. His word, the Bible, is the only truth.”
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
Jesus openly declared in this verse that He is the truth and not a truth.
