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?”

When I lost my mom to cancer, my world came crashing down around me. I became angry, bitter, and withdrawn. I directed all my anger at God for not answering prayers to heal my mom. I started doubting everything I had ever heard about God, even doubting His very existence.
Thankfully, God didn’t leave me in that distressed state of anger and doubt. He chose to use that tragedy to prove His Existence to me. God gave me a vision of my mom healed and happy. He showed me his power and glory, and showed me that he did answer my prayers to heal my mom.
After God proved to me He was real, he began a radical transformation of me and my life from the inside out.
From doubting His existence, to total submission to Him, to putting Him first in my life, read about God’s powerful appearance in my life, and His radical transformation of my life.
Time, time, time. In this fast moving world of modern, ever changing technology we all struggle with time to do the things we know we need to do. One of those “need to” disciplines is the daily reading of God’s Word in a way that is life-changing and mind renewing. When Bernd Weimer told me that he was going to write a book on how to systematically read and study the entire Bible in a year, it was all I could do to keep from saying “Oh no, not another read-the-Bible-in-a-year book.” Although I was inwardly skeptical, I encouraged him as he started the project. There were so many books already written from a Bible devotional nature that Bernd’s book would have to be very unique to be accepted and widely used. But Bernd has pulled it off. He has developed a method whereby the reader can work his or her way through the Word of God without guilt of failure. This book is more than just a Bible reading plan. When used, this book can become a lifelong journal filled with your impressions from the Lord, special quotes from people that have touched your heart and spirit, and your own personal Bible study notes. To the casual reader, this book will be impressive because of its sheer simplicity, and yet many will be astonished by the book’s depth of allowing the reader to make it his or her own life history with the Lord. It is a single, bright sword, cut across three different books in one: a Bible reading guide, a person journal, and a Biblical insight on key passages.

Certain truths in the Bible were written for specific times. Although God-inspired and written long ago, when God deems the time is appropriate, He mysteriously moves upon individuals to search out those truths and make them plain to the understanding of His people. When the prophecies of Daniel were written, some of those visions were not applicable “till the time of the end” (Daniel 12:9). I believe we are living in the last days of Earth prior to the second coming of Jesus, and God wants us to know what those visions given to Daniel and the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos are saying to our generation. There is in the nature of man a longing to know what lies ahead. God threw this challenge out to the false gods in ancient times: “show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods” (Isaiah 41:23). By giving that challenge, God was asserting His ability to do just that; to show the future! This He has done in the prophetic books of Daniel and Revelation written over two thousand years ago.
This book will take you into the future and show you in detail, from the books of Daniel and Revelation, what is about to happen and how you can be prepared for that time. “We have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it” (2 Peter 1:19).

Do you believe that God still speaks? I do. I believe we serve a God who deeply desires to be heard, who longs for intimacy with His children. While the Bible is His primary means of communication, He speaks in other ways, too. Sometimes He uses a song or a sunset. Sometimes He uses jellybeans. Yes, I said jellybeans.
Are you ready to experience God in a new way? Are you willing to listen to His whispers, to follow His promptings? Are you ready to see with His eyes and hear with His ears? Then you are ready for Holy Jellybeans.
Holy Jellybeans is a collection of stories designed to whisper sweet words of comfort to the restless heart. It’s an invitation to explore the character, nature, and will of the only one who can validate you, the only one who can truly know you, and the only one who can satisfy the longings buried deep within your soul.

Your search for meaning in your life is completed once you are introduced to Jesus. From the beginning of creation, God wanted you to have a relationship with Him through His Son. God planned the details of this relationship and made it possible in your life. All that is needed is for you to receive this life in Christ and believe He wants you in His family. And ask Him to make you a member of His family. God, through His Holy Spirit, works out everything else. You will find your life tremendously purposeful and full. Your life will take on new meaning as you live from day to day, and you will have hope and purpose for all eternity as you learn to obey God’s guidance in your life.
