Thank you for taking this test. I love you because you love my Best Friend, King Jesus or you would not have bothered to take this test. Though I may not know you today, look me up when Jesus gathers his own together (at the LAST Trump; not the first). He will never let you down if you keep the faith and continue to follow the Great King into his real and soon-coming Kingdom of which you will be a Cabinet Member. He is preparing you for just such a position. That is the purpose of life. All men press into it. 

So, how did you do? Now you are ready to learn even more about Jesus.

Study Primer 3, the Prophecies about his first coming, about his second coming, about the End of the age and what happens after that. He is the wisest of all, way greater than Solomon (Matthew 12:42). Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15)

Recommended reading would include my Book entitled: 'WHY JESUS MATTERS NOW' It is an easy to read 30 day adventure through Jesus’ life and times woven together from the 4 Gospels, the book of Acts and the Book of Revelation, to give the reader a clearer view of Jesus as never before seen exactly in this way.

Get it, while time still remains or read it right here. May I suggest you don’t just skim it; really study him, what he did, what he taught and to whom. Try to get a sense of his genius, why he did and said what he did. You will be amazed! And you will come to know the Great King as never before.

You will be able to prepare for your astonishing future. Restudy daily to stay fresh. Take the JESUS IQ TEST and first study its 3 Primers over and over. Expect many surprises… You may never cease to learn new things about our Wonderful Savior King every time you do this. May God richly bless and keep you for all time to come. See you ‘on the Rock’! (…for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. See 1 Cor. 10:1-4.)
