Choose To Follow Him Now

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.   

God has provided salvation for everyone, however, not all men will accept. Put away ungodliness, because this is against the nature of God, as your righteousness does not save you. It is only the mercy of God that permits you to believe in Jesus and accept Him as your personal Savior. 

One of the duties of the Holy Spirit is to convict people of sin in their lives, see John 16:8-11. A person can constantly turn the Holy Spirit down if he wants to, but he will finally get to the place where the Holy Spirit will leave and not try to convict him any more. Genesis 6:3 tells you the Holy Spirit will not always strive or convict. Choose to follow Him now!

For The Tempted Christian

Therefore do not worry, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?”   Worry is the art of continuing to feel anxious or uneasy. Matthew 6:31

Untold numbers of Christians have been tempted and are frequently yielding to worry. They spend fruitless hours worrying about something that never happens. The secret of answered prayer is to put Jesus in first place in your life, and come to a place of total depend­ency upon His promises. 

You must reach a greater understanding that God means you, and not just a selected few, for His promises. When you seek His will concerning the answers to your needs, and use the divine faith that He has given you, you will see your needs are met according to His resources instead of your own strength and resources. Look for Scriptures to overcome your concerns, put them to memory, then depend on them.

Overcoming Condemnation

The Pen presents a new book release, It Was Not My Fault! All the Glory to God by Rachel Lee White. 

A highly recommended faith-filled and unique book of prayers bringing to light her own experiences that relays the message to readers in that we over come by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.

Your past does not determine your future, bringing insight to the power of prayer, the author offers hope to others in this life changing book. Three short chapters cover: Early Childhood, Young Adulthood, and Middle Adulthood to Present Day that are designed to relate to God. Readers will find this book an inspiration as to how to know and draw near to our Father in Heaven through the connection of prayer.

Finding herself with 2 babies and homeless by the age of 18, she was persuaded by Child Services to give her children to Foster Care, and soon followed their adoption. Born out of much grief, her story is heartbreaking as she was orphaned at the age of 10 by violence that penetrated her home through her father who wounded her mother, which led to her death and his eventual suicide. Raised by her grandmother, the chronic grief opened unwanted “drama” in the author’s life.

This is an amazing short prayer testimonial filled with Scriptural and foundational truths that renew the mind that will catapult readers towards thankfulness and the amazing love and grace of God. Fostering the truth of God’s Word, this book comes highly recommended as an inspirational tool to young adults (especially young teenage girls) that need to understand that nothing is their fault (as the title denotes) and that God is able to complete the work He has begun.

Truly An Amazing Read

Standing firm in the Word, Rusty Kuhn sheds light on the real issues that face this land today. Are you ready?  Revival is coming.  Read this book and find out how you can be a part of the solution.  A truly amazing read.

Reclaiming the Land: God’s Formula for Revival by Pastor Rusty Kuhn presents not only the desire for revival, but bold and biblical solutions leading to God’s idea of revival, not ours.  Invigorating, this book presents II Chronicles 7:14 as a basis for revival - If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  Gain understanding through this truthful and biblical application of the Word revealing that it’s only up to us first to turn and repent.

As noted by the author, It doesn’t take the most spiritually discerning person among us to see that we stand in desperate need of revival within our land.  We see churches in drastic decline which leads to moral decay and opens wide the door for the devourer to enter in and destroy our families and community.  The purpose of the book is two-fold: (1) . . . to see the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ rise to its full potential and calling by seeking the face of God and (2) seeing this land reclaimed in the name and for the glory of Jesus Christ.

A Must Read Christian Novel

Talmid - The Book of John by W. R. Sander
A Christian Book Review, Review Date: August 6, 2014
9.9 out of 10.0 stars

Talmid - The Book of John reveals through a progressive novel the story of Jesus – or rather - Yeshua.  The author captivates readers through the journey of three teenagers growing up in first century Israel.  John, a young Jewish boy, is gifted with memorization of the Scriptures.  Meet Philo, another peer and much learned disciple of the elders, who is challenged by the new messages coming from the prophets that John encounters, challenging him to question his path in life.  And Myriam, one whose faith in the prophets' message is firm and resilient.  Many characters come into play to reveal the timeless story of Jesus, the Messiah, who came with a new message, one that challenged the Pharisees of that day.  This is an exciting and riveting story, taking readers back in time to experience Jesus during His ministry.  One will appreciate the historical accuracy as well as the Hebrew language incorporated throughout, offering an ancient feel to this hugely important book. 

Highly recommended for the younger teenage audience, but would also be a very entertaining read for older readers as well.  The book was written so that one might understand who God is, who Jesus is and receive the gift of God – unto salvation.  Throughout the book, the Greatest Story Ever Told is presented through a fascinating and thought-provoking book with dialogue representative of the era (glossary included) as the writer paints vivid pictures of what life was like during the war torn and Roman oppressed Israel.  It is truly a fascinating read that will take you through many emotions of the emergence of the Messiah, leading to His crucifixion.  Invigorating, your faith will be lifted.

Mosz offers a traditionally moral novel depicting a budding romance between Caitlin Rosenberry and Dr. Chris Seacrest.

Caitlin is a free spirit, yet has overcome two tragedies in her young life.  At age twenty-one she experienced the tragic loss of her only parent, her father, and from a stroke which immediately followed.  

Recovering from the stroke, she meets Dr. Seacrest…only to find out that Dr. Seacrest has become so submerged in his social circles as a high powered neurosurgeon, and accustomed to the luxurious lifestyle afforded to such a man, he has forgotten that no career can be a god of salvation.  Surprisingly, Caitlin is the one to jolt him out of his self-sufficiency and false ideals after a brief, patient-doctor encounter between the two.  After many twists and turns in the romance, Dr. Seacrest can no longer deny the urgency in God's invitation to his own healing.    

Encompassing the highs and lows of friendship, the spirit of the individual, the nature of true love and the power of faith over past circumstances, The Keeper culminates into a thought-provoking, contemporary drama enveloping the meaning of true love, faith and perseverance.

From Surviving to Significance Revised and Updated

ISBN#978-1936451050
Review Date: April 11, 2014
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars 

The Christian Codependence Recovery Workbook: From Surviving to Significance (Revised and Updated) by Stephanie Tucker, MDAAC, RAS, M.Min., in conjunction with, A House that Grace Built, presents healing and wholeness to the body of Christ through a Christ-centered recovery process.  Designed by the author to assist in the recovery process from issues of "codependency," the workbook takes readers on a journey to discovery-giving them tools that reveal the nature of codependency amongst behaviors and patterns that can be created within the lives of individuals, families and within relationships.  The Lord has given the author much insight into the recovery process, enabling families, addicts and individuals to become free from bondage and strongholds that are linked to "survival" without a Christ-centered life.  Once denial has been addressed, the author reveals the issues, further exposing the lies, and transitions to the disclosure of truth, disposes of the dysfunctional strongholds and offers a receiving of His (Jesus Christ's) true healing.  This workbook is nothing short of phenomenal!  One will find a comprehensive workbook to bring a life truly centered in Christ and His freedom.

Within the pages, one will find much emotional healing with such chapters as: Facing Codependence, Family Systems, Emotional Strongholds, Love Systems, Ceasing Control: the Pathway to Surrender, Breaking Free From Denial, Exposing Shame, Receiving the Gift of Forgiveness, Offering the Gift of Forgiveness, Embracing Authentic Identity, Building Healthy Boundaries, and Balancing Principles and Priorities.  With keen biblical insight, the author systematically exposes the dysfunctional dynamics in individuals, addicts and the nature of codependence, while addressing the reality of spiritual warfare.  Further developing a solid scriptural foundation throughout, the author instructs and encourages readers that there is hope to be found in the recovery process.  All of the principles presented are biblical solutions offered with compassion and an open-ended question forum at the end of each chapter.  In doing so, the author gives practical applications to real life situations.

This is a much-needed book within the entire body of Christ.  While salvation is obtained by believing and confessing Christ, entering into the New Life that Christ offers can seem like an impossibility for some, as many are entangled in codependent behaviors derived from a life without Christ.  This book offers the way out of confusion, loneliness, fear and despair through a Christ-centered recovery process to finding freedom!  The author adamantly explains that Jesus is the ultimate Healer through His abundant Grace!  Amen!  Both books are highly recommended and are available to the body of Christ to encounter through individual study sessions or within group settings.  Highly recommended!

You may purchase The Christian Codependence Recovery Workbook at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other fine online bookstores.  You may visit the author and learn more about her ministry at Spirit of Life RecoveryFor information about webinars, recordings, and current class notes be sure to visit the Christian Codependence Recovery Blog.
