CHRISTMAS is about the birth of a King—and the coming of a Kingdom! In this book we explore some of the ancient promises God made to the patriarchs and prophets, and see how the hope of Israel and the salvation of the world began to be realized 2,000 years ago. We will savor the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke, and taste of the rich meaning of the Incarnation in John and the letters of Paul.
THERE IS ALWAYS JOY! Paul was in prison. The Jesus believers at Philippi were facing increasing persecution. Add to that an undercurrent of personal disagreements and division in the fellowship, and things were not looking very bright. Yet Paul said, “Rejoice in the Lord always.” There is always joy, and in his letter to the church at Philippi, Paul shows you how to find it.
The gospel of our faith is the good news that the kingdom of God has come and Jesus is the Messiah, God’s anointed King. He is the focus of our faith, not only the One upon whom we fix our attention but also the One through whom we view the whole world, to see more clearly and understand God’s purpose with greater wisdom. That is what Paul’s letter is about. This book is a study of that letter.
Keep the Faith, Change the World! When times are hard, it can be tempting to hold on to the world and let go of the faith. The apostle Peter certainly knew what that was like! But with the reality of the resurrection and the power of the Holy Spirit, he learned how to do just the opposite — to keep the faith and change the world! This book studies Peter’s letter to Jesus believers in tough times.
Renew your heart to the rhythms of God! Confessing the psalms is simply speaking in agreement with them ~ a great way to meditate and instruct your soul. The confessions in this book are adapted from the psalms. They are defibrillations to shift your heart into the rhythms of faith, to recalibrate your thoughts and emotions with the promises of God and realign your will with the heart of God.
God Has Always Done Miracles in His Church ~ and Still Does! The Holy Spirit has never left the Church and neither have His supernatural gifts and manifestations, from the Apostolic Fathers, to the desert monks, throughout the Middle Ages, to the Reformation and the revivals that followed, to the Pentecostal explosion of the 20th Century and the increase of signs and wonders in the Twenty-first.
God’s Word in your mouth is just as powerful as it is in His ~ when you speak it in faith! Bold, expectant faith changes the world. Learn how Joshua and Caleb succeeded where so many others failed and ended up in the Promised Land, how three young Hebrews caused the king of Babylon to honor God, how Paul learned to overcome the challenges set before him to finish his race with joy ... and more!
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS HERE ON EARTH! Everywhere He went, Jesus preached it, taught it and demonstrated it by signs and wonders, healing the sick and setting spiritual captives free. He brought heaven to earth and taught His disciples how to do it, too. This book is a study of the nature and dynamics of the kingdom of Heaven on Earth, and how to live and operate effectively in its dominion.
GOD WANTS YOU WELL! Discover God's healing promises in the Old and New Testaments, healing revealed in the names of God, the healing ministry of Jesus and His disciples, life restoration stories in the Bible, how healing is revealed in the name of Jesus, the Lord's Prayer as healing prayer and the Lord's Supper as healing prayer. Also a great tool to help you minister healing to others.
Come consider the King who was born in a stable, crowned with thorns and now reigns forever. Trace the path of prophets who foresaw Him, angels who announced Him, shepherds who witnessed Him and wise men who pursued Him. Ponder what it means to watch, wait, listen and believe. Learn why Jesus came and how His birth, life, death and resurrection are the reason for every season.
Evangelistic prayers that empower the work of the Gospel. Pastoral prayers that build up churches and establish Christians in the faith. Benedictions that water God's people with the blessings of heaven. Prayers of thanksgiving that return praise to God for what He is doing in His people. Doxologies that praise God for who He is and declare His glory and goodness. Great tool for intercessors.
When Moses approached the burning bush, in Exodus 3, the Lord spoke to him and said, "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground" (v. 5). Moses found himself in the powerful, purposeful presence of God. Walking Barefoot is about faith, the things that activate it and the things that hinder it. It is about moving mountains and changing the world.
