This book offers a reasonable understanding of John’s revelation letter to the seven churches of Asia, a letter that is not like the rest of the Bible and is difficult to understand. John’s revelation letter describes a terrible spiritual war that was fought between God and Satan--a war that was caused by a simple statement Jesus made (Matthew 16:18) when he said he would build his church and nothing could stop it. But Satan knew in order to fulfill his own purpose, which was to control the world himself, he must kill the church or it would be the end of him.
There is a parallel view of that spiritual war, however. It was also fought as a carnal war between the first-century church and the Roman Empire. John wrote about the spiritual forces of God as they battled against the evil spiritual forces of the devil and his angels. The carnal war that those spiritual forces caused, the war between the church and the Roman Empire, was described by Edward Gibbon (1737–1794) in his history of the decline and fall of Rome.
Gibbon only wrote history, and he did not consider his writings to be a description of anything that was going on in God’s kingdom, but the writings of both John and Gibbon describe the extreme price first-century Christians had to pay to be faithful to God and to continue on establishing his church throughout the world.
This book compares the things that John saw take place in the spiritual world--the cause--with something that was quite like it, but happened in this physical world between Rome and the church--the effect, which was described by Gibbon in his history.
This book is a revelation of how God proves to thousands, probably millions, that He exists. He does not condemn sinners but loves us. With the Holy Spirit and His Word, He prepares us for heaven. We live in a spiritual world. Jesus says heaven is full of children where, I think, they learn all about Jesus, to believe in Him. Jesus knew their hearts and they were saved. For some reason God took them to Heaven early. Jesus says “Heaven if full of such children.” Archaeology helps prove ancient prophecies have come true, some in my lifetime and some yet to come. Dominions and kingdoms destroyed the original manuscript. God miraculously sent the word around the world, and in His time pulled manuscripts, parts of pages together again, page by page, maintaining its original meaning. So many miracles in the world. The Bible says if all He did were written in books, the world could hold them (John 21:25).
Growing up in the Midwest in the tumultuous 60s and 70s, the author witnessed a foundational shift in American love and sex. While traditional families showed us daily trials with characters on black and white TV sitcoms, the country swirled with the confusion of rapidly changing social norms. Relationships became more experimental, and even those rooted in love for God were caught up in trying to make this new life fit with what God defines for us in the Bible.
For more than twenty years she hid her own life of substance abuse, promiscuity, and same-sex relationships from family, friends, and colleagues. She married, watched her marriage disintegrate, and then despaired. As she finally found her relationship with God, she found both the joy and the peace she had been seeking. In this quest to share love as God intends and to know family as he designed, she transparently offers her story so others struggling with similar life decisions may find their way.
“For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord - He examines all his paths.” (Proverbs 5:21)

The grace revolution is praised by millions, but the Bible shows it is an end-time apostasy from truth that will end in death for many and hell for a few. It sets the stage for the appearance of the man of lawlessness who will oppose Jesus at His coming and for the union of evangelicals and charismatics with the mother church. Jesus condemned the teaching of lawlessness and hell for a few who turn permanently from the truth they knew.
This book describes, from various perspectives, the Love, Mercy, and Grace of someone who loves you and me. Unlike a novel, each of the chapters in my book is an independent topic. Each chapter topic is relatively brief, except the last. The last chapter is a comprehensive presentation of the answers to these questions: “Who is a Christian?”, and “What is Christianity?” My supreme and profound purpose for this book and its content is to proclaim, celebrate, praise, and glorify Jesus, His Faith, and His Truth.
Author Merle Barlow reveals God’s plan of reconciliation with humanity. Jesus tells us that man’s standards—religions—represent the broad way that will lead to destruction (Hell), and many people will go this way. Jesus tells us that His Way is the narrow way that leads to life (Heaven), and relatively few people will choose this way.
This book is about truth. Conditional and relative truth are human fabrications. Truth has no versions. God is the author of truth. He, and He alone, is the authority for Righteousness, and His Truth will free you from the bondage of sin.
Life is a significant theme in this book. Jesus has conquered Satan, Sin, Death, and Hell. He tells you that you can have this same victory. Jesus tells you that you can have eternal life if you will trust Him. He asks you: “Do you believe this?”
Flights of Faith is the autobiography of a Christian airline pilot who shares his experiences during his career as an airline pilot and as a reverend minister, and where he encourages others to commit their ways to the Lord. This book talks about the experiences of Rev. Capt (retired) Emmanuel Odoi Woolley, who in the skies of the unseen trusted God in all his aerial journeys. There were rough times where he trusted God, and there were joyful moments as well—especially his last flight after forty-plus years of flying safely around the world. In all this he did not see himself as having achieved something by his own feat, but instead by the grace of God. Others never had it this way.
“The lesson in this book echoes the prophet Micah’s exhortation in Micah 6:8: He has told you, O man, what is good, and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and walk humbly with your God. (ESV)” – Rev. Samuel Kofi Osabutey

The most important subject that the Bible speaks about is Christ and the Church. The Bible teaches that God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to be crucified for us, that we might be reconciled unto Him. It teaches that Christ loved us so much that He was willing to die on the cross and pay the expensive dowry, that we could be His bride. Therefore, if Christ and the Church is not only the main theme of the Bible but the most important truth in the Bible, then where does this place marriage? God patterned marriage after Christ and the Church. Therefore, Christ’s relationship to His Church shows us how important marriage is in the eyes of God.
Marriage is patterned after Christ’s relationship to His Church; consequently, the more we understand about that relationship, the more we will know about God’s standards for marriage, and the more able we will be to have a marriage based upon God’s prescribed order for it. God ordained marriage, therefore, it would seem very probable that He should be the One that knows the most about it. He teaches us about it in the Bible, so if we are going to have a godly marriage that is full of every blessing God ordained for it, it would only make sense to follow His instructions. This book is for anyone planning marriage, as well as those who have been married for years.
Dios me a ayudado a escribir este libro para ayudar a su pueblo a vencer en esos momentos difíciles que le vendrán. Él nos ama tanto y sabe que usted va a pasar momentos en su vida cristiana que se sentirá, frustrado, confundido y desanimado de tal manera que dudara de su salvación. Preguntándose si en verdad es salvó, ¿porque le atraen todavía esos pecados, y todavía tiene ciertos deseos o pensamientos malos?, y se desanima tratando de ignorar lo que le pasa o lo que siente. En lugar de tomar las enseñanzas de Jesús para poder vencer en toda circunstancia, y problema. No ignore los problemas ni adicciones ni tempestades pensando que desaparecerán sino confróntelos cara a cara con la palabra de Dios y siempre saldrá vencedor sobre todas las circunstancias.
This book is about prayers for an end to abortion. People of all faiths who believe in God can pray the prayers in this book. While praying in a Eucharistic perpetual adoration chapel in a Catholic church, Patricia witnessed a miracle there. She found the miracle was still there the following day when she returned and took pictures of this miracle. She spent time in prayer there and writing in her journal. Through inner locutions (messages) from God (while she was writing in the Eucharistic perpetual adoration chapel), God told her a “new parable of a mustard seed.” God asked her to write a prayer book of nine days of prayers for an end to abortions. God explained to her what the title of the book would be, how the cover of the book would appear, and how a professional portrait painter was to depict the Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus to be standing in a field of mustard flowers. Patricia received many graces and witnessed many different miracles on her journey to bring this book to fruition.
Patricia shared her manuscript with six Catholic priests from different Catholic churches, and a few of their comments were: “Follow Jesus”; “Jesus is the Way, and the Truth, and the Life”; “get this manuscript published”; “I like the new parable of the mustard seed”; and “getting this manuscript published, Patricia would be doing a great deed for Almighty God.”
Revelation is addressed to the churches in chapter one and for the churches in the last chapter. One would expect God’s last love letter to be a favorite book among Christians, but it isn’t. It isn’t because it isn’t understood.
This book has been highly received by numerous evangelical leaders and is used as the textbook on Revelation in Bible colleges as far away as Africa and India.
“From the first, I was taken with the desire of Ken to help people see that the book of Revelation was written primarily to help people in their walk with God in the midst of troubled times, and not as a text to figure out the sequence of the end times. This was also the first time I had seen the theme of overcoming given as the main thrust of Revelation. So, I had to read his manuscript to see if in fact he had come upon something I had missed. I am convinced that he has. I have found his book to be extremely helpful to see the desire of God to have his children to be overcomers, and the resources available to us to do just that as the end approaches. And the book is more than that, for it does not side-step the questions that are raised as one reads the book of Revelation.” —Stephen R. Bradley, Director of Field Education, Columbia Bible College.
