TERMS AND DEFINITIONS

Words can mean different things at different times. Authors, teachers, and translators bring them into existence to express thoughts by a group of people who share them at a point in time with a meaning that reflects their origin, use, and timeframe. Take, for instance, the word “truth.” Originally, that word meant "the Life of Christ," as in "a person." However, over time, it has come to mean words written or spoken accurately. Within this book, I will offer accurate Biblical definitions of the words and Biblical phrases that address the indwelling Life of Jesus Christ. REVIEW/ORDER HERE

THE INDWELLING SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Understanding and knowing what God says about Spiritual Gifts is the starting place of our journey. Even though man has many opinions about the topic, God has plenty to say about His gifts to us – after all, He is the giver of these gifts. It is my hope and prayer that this study blesses you. I spent 12 years researching and studying the Scriptures through pictorial Hebrew, Modern Hebrew, and Greek texts.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP

Our church society is in complete opposition to the principles Nehemiah lived by. Today we need wise, Godly leaders like Nehemiah to stand in the gap of a depraved culture. The God-sized news? It’s possible. In this book, I will walk you through the life lessons I gained by studying this man’s life. I hope you learn the powerful leadership principles lived out by Nehemiah and his counterparts. Servant Leadership will assist in this journey.

PERMISSIBLE SUFFOCATION

I firmly believe that afflictions sometimes come from God to purify us and that this, in no way, indicates that God is unloving. It is only His way of leading us back to a dependent “talk and walk” relationship with Himself - like a father would discipline a child. Even though I know that suffering instructs us in righteousness and prevents us from sinning, it doesn’t make the journey easier. It puts us in the position of determining if we will question God’s sovereignty or accuse Him of hurting His children.

PREEMINENT DARKNESS

My devotion to studying the Lord’s prophecies, particularly when it comes to culture, is anchored in my love for releasing the Life of Christ from within. In the pages of this book, you will discover some of the top trending cultural movements that rise against the mind of Jesus. Scripture reveals our Lord’s thinking regarding each movement. It is my mission to unfold the doctrines of Christ as these movements rise against Christianity.

THE ART OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE

This book unfolds the spiritual secrets to a free life. As a sword, the Word has the power to penetrate the life of every being that hears it, and that includes the enemy. It is meant to do corrective surgery within the soul, spirit, thoughts, attitudes, and body of all who hear it. This is the secret of its power against the enemy. As you use it, the Word can penetrate, cleanse, and change the lives of those that embrace it as Truth. There is nothing more powerful and there is certainly no substitute for persistent, steady, consistent application of coming against the enemy. REVIEW/ORDER HERE

THE PRINCIPLED PATRIARCH

We are in the middle of a cultural battle that wages war against the male and female genders – boys being emasculated and our girls being made masculine. Whatever happen to the patriarchs of our day? Why are the women asserting more male dominance than our males? Why do men default to women in leading their families, homes and communities? These are just some of the questions that get answered in The Principled Patriarch.

MEN & WARFARE

The Christian man is engaged in a spiritual battle even if he does not believe that he is. Satan and his spiritual forces are on the battle line waiting for you each day. A man does not have a choice as to his engagement in this battle, it awaits him each day and there is no way getting around it. If you are saved and have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are in! Be alert and sober, for your enemy, Satan, roams around on the earth to seek whom he can devour.

BOOK OF PRAYERS | PRAYING THE NEW COVENANT

The Book of Prayers, Learning To Pray Covenant Prayers. If we don’t align our thinking with the New Covenant message, our prayer requests will take the pathway of selfish praying. New Covenant thinking is all about fulfillment versus asking for things – it is more like claiming what is already true about us and the allotment of our daily circumstances. Without this modality of thinking, the enemy will shift our focus from accepting existing sovereignty to begging for God to change His sovereignty to match our panic and fears.

FINANCES & THE END TIMES

God says the rain falls on the just and the unjust. For our reading benefit, we could easily say the “money falls on the just and the unjust.” I cannot tell you how many times I have heard a believer ask, “Why is it that God allows the ungodly to prosper while Christians suffer with little?” The answer is found in this book. Learn more about the 46 primary Biblical Truths regarding money, the end times, and the believer's identity in Christ.
