African marriages in the Diaspora are in trouble. The divorce rate among Africans living out of Africa is increasing minute after minute leaving many African families in the pool of blood. The center can’t hold any longer, and Africans are wondering how they can face the monster devastating their marriages in the Diaspora.
Rescuing African Marriages in the Diaspora walks through the process of marriage from the time of just wondering whether to ask, “Will you marry me?” and “Should I say yes to him?”, to the time you are married and living together.
Rescuing African Marriages in the Diaspora navigates through the wild cultural wind that blows against African marriages in the Diaspora and anchors safely in the commitment to stay married until death do us part.
“So, also the account given by the dispenser of your words, which was to provide material for many future commentators, out of a small amount of words pours forth floods of clear truth. From them each man for himself may draw the truth he can attain.”
—Confessions of St. Augustine
As a people birthed with purpose, God has reserved the best for the last to display his tangible anointing power to a dying world. The anointing is that divine inducement from above, and not a desire of emotional feelings. It comes not with years of experience, status and articulates. But rather it is given by laying aside every weight and sin that easily besets us.
He has placed a “now power” (Ephesians 3:20) on the inside of you to defeat your adversary. This power is actually on the inside of you right now. This is the beginning of miracles concerning you – just believe!
Discovering the anointing on your life; you will realize that it an inheritance given to serve and not to be served.
I believe we are at a prophetic crossroad in history to witness a people with a new birth - destined to walk in a double portion of his spirit, just as Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s spirit. God has saved us, the best, for the last.
Therefore, we must desire nothing less than the anointing that destroys yokes of bondage, opens blind eyes, straightens crippled limbs, mends broken homes and deliver every captive.
God’s Word promises that there will be an overflow, or a double portion, of wine and oil (or anointing), coming your way in one month. That’s a double blessing! This double portion is waiting for you, it is part of your inheritance through Christ Jesus. It will show you how to walk in the anointing of the Holy Spirit and do greater works than that of the risen Messiah.
This is your hour of power! This is your day to receive your double portion.
After reading this book your life should never be the same again. It is my desire that readers obtain spiritual experiences and insights that will enlarge their spiritual vision for tomorrow.
Phillips Brooks said, “Preaching is the communication of truth by man to men. It has in it two essential elements: truth and personality.” This book challenges the preacher of the gospel to seek to develop his or her preaching skills while understanding the nature of the audience. It is not a textbook on preaching but a practical guide to effective preaching.
