Have you wondered what God’s intentions are or if He has intentions for you? Answers to these questions and more are found in Unearthing Your Heavenly Election, which reveals the logical love in God’s choosing of you to be in heaven with Him eternally.
Unearthing Your Heavenly Election is a compilation of verses from the Old and New Testaments progressively arranged to uncover the sensible reasoning behind predestination. As an added bonus, you will learn the parallel doctrine in the Bible that will relieve, comfort, and empower your Christian walk. That is the doctrine of eternal security.
You will find answers to questions like:
Study in depth Jesus’ separation of the goats from His sheep, and come to understand His parables of the talents, wheat, and tares. Take advantage of the included glossary for simple definitions of commonly used Christian words viewed in the light of election.
Start enjoying your Christian walk as you shed vague ideas concerning salvation, and instead, embrace the clarity and intensity of it. Release your grip on guilt, and let it fall away as you discover more love than you have ever known. Lose the confusion you have had about God’s saving grace, and find the answers to questions you have been afraid to ask. Come to a place of peace and relaxation with yourself and with God.
Have you found yourself struggling as you work to learn Scripture or teach it to your children? In an effort to make understanding and memorizing Scripture more doable, Memory Helper for the Book of Colossians takes a small portion of the Bible and tries to show what it would look like in a simple drawing. Almost every phrase is given something in the picture to hang on so that in remembering the picture, the verse is easier to understand and memorize. All ages can benefit from this technique of learning, from the young ones who hear the verses and use the pages to color, to older persons just wanting to hold more of God’s Word in their hearts. The side benefits are that vocabulary is expanded and observational skills are encouraged. Memory Helper covers the book of Colossians. Paul writes this letter to remind believers of the treasure that we have in Christ, and it seems especially pertinent for today. From creation to family relationships, philosophy and heresy, our hearts and our actions, Colossians is a magnificent love letter from God that enriches our lives. Our aim should be to know it as well as we are able. Memory Helper wants to help you do just that! The verses are taken from the King James Version of the Holy Bible for its majesty and ease of memorizing, and Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible by James Strong is employed for the Greek definitions of many of the words to ensure accurate meaning.

God asks us to dream big and follow a challenging path filled with joy and revelation. But sometimes God falls silent while we’re on that journey. What do we do when we can’t hear God’s voice anymore?
Raised in a loving, Christian home, Jennifer had wandered away from her faith and endured years of struggle in a difficult marriage. When that marriage finally ended, she found herself questioning God’s plan for her life, for her family, and for herself. She resolved to find God in the midst of the turmoil, though, and God reached out to her. God provided during the dark times, and led Jennifer back to the church and a wonderful marriage. God even gave her a vision for a new work that she began to pursue! But in the midst of pursuing that vision, the road took a turn and Jennifer’s vision for her ministry began to waver.
In this powerful and honest book, Jennifer talks about how she maintained her focus on God’s vision for her life, and how we can do the same. Using her own stories, reflections on scripture, and the abiding promises of God’s love, Jennifer talks candidly about her struggle with faith and God’s promises, and the joy that comes from realizing that God will never let us down. Chasing is a moving testament to God’s love for each of us, and the joy that can be found as we chase after God’s dreams for our lives.
The Millennium Church is a book of revelatory insight into how we can reach and establish a diverse body of people who are infused with the DNA of God Himself. The new Generations that make up Christendom will settle for nothing less than the best for the Kingdom of God. From fishers of men to shadow casters; from titles on our office doors to towels around our waists; from Shepherd boys to kings; we have to change our spiritual mindsets. It is past time for the Church to think outside of the box; and even color outside of the lines. The Millennium Church will stretch our spiritual thought patterns and give to us the boldness and elasticity to reach a difficult generation for the sake of God’s Kingdom. You will never view “The Church” the same after reading: The Millennium Church!” —Author: Rev. Mrs. Kathy Sandlin
1 Corinthians 10:1-13 Having escaped the bondage of sin and set free for the promised land, we are traveling to the river of death and pass over into a way that we have never traveled before. God is leading the way with the assurance of victory based upon obedience. The failure of the Church to fight the enemy and allow corruption to exist has kept the Church from possessing all that God has allotted to it. Just like Israel, the Church is surrounded by a host of enemies that is seeking to destroy it. Compromise has caused defeat by deception, but God will not let that happen to the Church or Israel. We, as well as Israel, shall be victorious. We are to stand fast in the liberty with which Christ has set us free, and not be entangled with the world. This book addresses these victories and failures, and ours as well, so that the lessons learned can be applied to insure further victories.
Family was created to be powerful. Adam and Eve were commissioned to tend the Garden of Eden, and their children were supposed to reproduce the culture of the Garden over the whole world. Unfortunately, in the Garden we were separated from the Father and family lost its identity, its purpose, and its power.
Although we were orphans, the Father never stopped pursuing us, and “when the fullness of time had come,” our loving Daddy sent Jesus on a rescue mission. He restored us back into the presence of the Father and to our identity.
Family was and still is the Father’s plan. The time is now for families to be restored and play a critical role in the “restoration of all things.” This book provides key strategies that bring healing to your own heart, to your family relationships, and to the inheritance mindset. The result will be a restoration of power and influence that was your family’s destiny from the beginning of time!
Amazing Beauty details the chronological account of one woman’s messiness in losing five different babies to miscarriages and a tubal pregnancy. Over a span of five years, from almost dying to being on the brink of divorce, to seriously contemplating death, and through it all, the Lord gently led, healed and mended one woman’s heart, soul, mind and body. This book goes deep underground and honestly portrays one woman’s struggle with infertility and loss. Even in today’s sensational culture, miscarriage is still a topic of taboo and one that is quickly hushed.
Amazing Beauty shows how through our darkest hours, the only spark of light to be illuminated is by the hand of God. The finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross displays the most divine amazing beauty through love, hurt, forgiveness, and suffering. Women, and their men, will be able to label their confusion and ultimately, start the process of healing and letting go, by letting God.
If you have ever read about the seven churches of Asia Minor and wondered what they are all about, this book will help you get a deeper insight into the character of these churches. You will get a look at their geographical locations, their historical backgrounds, and their experiences that shaped the way Christ addressed them. Christ introduced himself to these seven churches in seven different ways because their works were different, and he wrote them according to their works. The church of Ephesus--the first of the seven--left its first love, and the last of the seven, the Church of Laodicea, focused on material wealth without recognizing that Christ was on the outside knocking, seeking the opportunity to come in. The Seven Churches of Asia Minor will take you through each church one by one; it will help you to identify actions for which they were admonished or encouraged. Five out of these seven churches were admonished, warned, and given specific steps to take for their restoration; they could take these steps or face the consequences meted by Christ himself. The Seven Churches of Asia Minor will be an eye-opener for churches and individuals alike.
Could you be a slumbering believer in Christ and not even know it? Is it possible that you are physically awake but sleepwalking spiritually? Do you have the deep and growing Christian life God intended, or are you sleeping though it? The Lord tells believers to wake up several times in the Scriptures. What makes believers go to sleep in the first place? Once awake, how can believers stay awake?
Authentic Happiness is a collection of personal journals of one slumbering believer’s journey of awakening. While the answers to some of these questions were less than desirable to hear, the truth that was revealed changed a life forever. Every believer should ask these same questions and seek the answers for themselves. This devotional encourages all believers to look at their own Christian lives a little closer to see how awake they really are in Christ. It may surprise you.
A Step of Faith is a result of two years of scripture sharing with my congregation, friends, and family that the Holy Spirit impressed upon my heart to write. I pray that it is a devotional book that will touch and transform the lives of many. Take your step of faith today, and begin your transformation process.
A rebellious pup makes life challenging for his parents in this heartwarming and hilarious story for young readers, beautifully illustrated in bold and brilliant color.
The Bible says that God knew you before he created the world. Did you ever wonder about the mental image that he had in mind as he thought of you? Because of sin, none of us matches that image. You can become the person he had in mind. It is a simple process. When Jesus spoke to people, their response to his words produced consequences in their lives. To comply with his radical agenda, a person’s life would defy the convention of any society. This is how we become the man or woman that God envisioned. Yes, it is up to you! The underscore after the title should be completed with the reader’s name. The title Let There Be is a condensed way of saying, “remove all impediments that prevent something from happening.” The person we have developed for ourselves is the impediment. So, let there be!
“Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “Does God exist?”
We have all wrestled these questions. With encouragement from my wife, I began to write prayers and devotionals in a journal as it related to my faith and belief in God. That turned into this. I have found it helpful reading or listening to others share their experiences and how it relates to my own situations. That is the purpose of this book, or, specifically, why it was God’s purpose for me to write this book. Was it part of God’s plan for you to pick up this book to read something from it that relates to your life?
My hope and my prayer for all of you is to know your lives have meaning, to believe. It helped clarify my life’s meaning when I began my walk with God. I believe it can for you as well.
