Behind The Veil

Hebrews 6:19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.   

God has opened the doors for you to come to Him to receive the complete expectation that He will meet the needs you bring Him. Once you recognize that God has placed His hope in your spirit, you can begin to understand more of what He has in store for you. 

This divine hope is like an anchor, or tethering pin, to keep your mind, which is your soul, from drifting back into the area of unbelief. This hope of God enables you to enter the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. You can now enter His presence through prayer, because He is expecting you.   Many believers have an ineffective prayer life because they feel God shows partiality. He loves you just as much as anyone else, see Acts 10:34. Start developing a quality prayer life, constantly go to Him with everything.

Enlightened by prayers that are offered and recorded for the benefit of the reader, some of God’s miracles and His evident hand upon our lives certainly help the reader to recognize the greatness of God, thus inspiring deeper faith and trust in Him.

God is at work. He is with you and is faithful to those who put their trust in Him. With openness and sincerity, the author gives insight through true accounts of divine protection and guidance.

A Northwest country girl at heart, Debi grew up Washington State in a strong Christian family that gave her a solid foundation with Jesus. As an adult, tragedy struck, and her 10 year- old daughter was suddenly gone in a tragic accident without saying good-bye.

Debi retells the journey of heartbreak and loss from that fateful day in October that changed everything. Shattering and heart-wrenching, this book will grab your heart from the beginning as she describes the events that led up to a loss so great, that it took her down a road of despair and hopelessness from which she thought there would be no end. Revealing that broken dreams and shattered lives can be rebuilt again, this book deals with such subjects as: grief, loss, hopelessness, despair and gives readers hope through the restoring and redeeming love of Jesus.

Through dreams and visions, encounters with the Father’s love and the joy of the Lord, her family was brought back to life after that tragic day in October. Her journey brings readers the reality of God’s presence, His heavy transforming glory and gives insight on how to become unstuck that brought Debi and her family hope, ministry and purpose. 

Her message is about finding that abundant life that Jesus speaks about in John 10:10 and leading others into that same joy to get them unstuck from wherever they may find themselves. Real and raw emotions flourish from the beginning, and chapter two, coupled with the following chapters highlight “golden nuggets”, a trip to the Toronto Blessing in Canada and much more that changed her families’ lives. Along this path the author gives awe-inspiring accounts of the supernatural, turning hearts to Jesus. Jesus, angels, coupled with dreams and encounters kept her alive and sane, and the Holy Spirit
transformed both her and her husband, catapulting them into ministry.

Encouraging and inspiring, this book reveals the great love Jesus has and that He never left her, nor her families’ side ~ even for a moment. Redeemed to Live! is one of those amazing true-life testimonies of tragic loss that brings the reality of Heaven and life beyond this Earth into better perspective. From this book readers gain a better understanding of the warfare that is waged here on Earth. Although tragic, her journey is shared with a genuine heart and without embellishment. As you will learn, Heaven is more real than you ever thought, God is closer than you ever thought and those who find this abundant life in Jesus are made alive again in Him. This is an amazing story of RESTORATION.

Highly recommended for anyone who has suffered any tragic loss in their life and for those that need help getting back on track to living again. The encounters of the supernatural, coupled with encouragement and Biblical wisdom, will help others to have hope again, knowing that Jesus is our Comforter, our Redeemer and very much a part of all of our lives! Redeemed to Live! by Debi Capito-Young is available at Amazon.

Exposing the deception posed as Liberalism that is infiltrating our educational system

New Book Release- Abduction: How Liberalism Steals our Children’s Hearts and Minds by Steven Feazel and Dr. Carol M. Swain reveals an intriguing read that will shock you. 

Exposing the deception posed as “Liberalism” that is infiltrating our educational system, media, and political arenas, the authors shed light on the effect of this agenda upon our future generation and the youth of America. 

This sway is far from God and godly principles, as the book brings readers up-to-date of the trends of our American culture that have led us into Liberalism, they candidly reveal the undertow that is sweeping across our culture and country. Consequently, more and more of society is swinging to the far Left that brings a modernized, humanistic and secular worldview that is currently leading our innocent children (and society) as a whole, down a corrupt path. Disguised as Liberalism (and known as “The New Morality”), this has become the Christian faith’s new enemy. The acceptance of this agenda has become so entrenched in our society, the authors have written a book to arm parents and to announce that it’s time to fight for our future generations before it’s too late. 

Known as The New Morality mind set, as the authors give accounts of events and statistics, state that Liberalism is destabilizing the family and future generations through the propagation of lies, some subtle in degrees, that degrade society and is leading our youth to make wrong choices apart from God. Historically, this path of destruction sways far from biblical truth and masquerades that evil is in fact “good”, and if it feels right, do it. Revealing agendas of certain institutions in the educational system, under the guise of Liberalism and all for political gain, this book brings a deeper insight into a mindset that steals our children’s hearts and minds away from the truth.

This well-researched book explains, the authors sound the alarm to all parents to guard their children more actively ~ in all arenas, not just at home. Providing parents with practical application and knowledge that will help protect children from becoming secularized, that also brings understanding to our youth of why an embrace of a Christian perspective, values and morals matters in life. With such chapters as: The Enemy Revealed, Exposing the Myth, Public Schools- Ground Zero, Sexy Kids, Music Hits a Sour Note, Big Screen-Little Value, Invader in a Box, Children Stolen and Gone, Higher Learning and Lower Values, Black Robes Bring Dark Days, and Fighting Back, parents and future generations are given hope and the tools to fight this onslaught of worldwide secularism. 

An important book for our society and comes highly recommended to every parent that stands for righteousness, who desires an America that embraces our Founding Fathers’ vision of America and to those parents that want to see strong Christian families to become the majority again.

Amy Crowe
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Changed by a Catch by Amy B. Crowe teaches valuable lessons of obedience and safety to young children, instilling in them a desire to follow directions from their parents. 

Highlighting safety rules such as what to do when a stranger comes to your door, giving out privileged information, the importance of obeying your parents, even if it doesn’t seem important to you and not to make judgments upon others’ differences highlights just some of J.J.’s life-lessons after he is changed by a catch thrown by his sister (out of all people). Cute, funny and wholesome, this story offers a balanced look at discipline with a loving touch, opening the way for parents and children to
softly talk about the importance of safety and following the rules.

This story will delight parents, (and make kids and parents alike chuckle). Little J.J. is sweet and sincere and he just can’t believe some of the messes that landed him into time out, time away from video games and grounded him for a month. 

Written from J.J.'s perspective, we find the inner-workings of a little boy learning about life. The author invites you into the story from the beginning and readers will be captivated by J.J. as he begins his story while having his head stuck between the rails of a staircase.

This book quickly became one of my favorite books for children, as the author encompasses facets of sound parenting that embrace communication in a fair and calm manner without guilt and condemnation. Children will learn from J.J. the reason why it is important to listen and do what your parents say the first time.

Holiness


Hebrews 12:14 Pursue peace with all men, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

The actions of the people of the world are based on the theme of the book of Judges, which is, “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes,” Judges 17:6.  You can’t afford to follow in their ways if your desire is to be a reflection of Jesus.  Holiness and peace are necessary to qualify you to see the Lord.  Some will compromise to have peace without conflict, but don’t consider the necessity of holiness in their actions.  They mix all kinds of worldliness with their Christianity, hoping the Lord will overlook it.  There are others who have a bitter spirit, or refuse to forgive others, and fail to realize this disqualifies them from a life of holiness.  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you if there is anything displeasing to the Lord in your life today.  Find out how He wants you to resolve the issue, so that you can be pleasing to Him in every area of your life.

The Prosperity Gospel and Wealth

Back to Eden: A Biblical Perspective on Wealth and Poverty by Dr. Simon Thiessen gives readers an insightful and thought provoking book that offers a systematic Biblical approach to the issues of wealth and poverty.


Back to Eden 
A Biblical Perspective on Wealth and Poverty
By: Dr. Simon Thiessen

With several key concepts, the author speaks broadly of the evangelical movement that divides into two basic groups:  one group stresses the personal relationship with Jesus Christ while ignoring their social responsibilities to the poor and the other that stresses both a personal relationship with the Lord that encourages, “a practical evidence of their faith as expressed in our responsible stewardship of our entire life.” (p.xi) 

Beginning from Creation to the Fall of man, the author takes readers on a discovery through the Bible from Old and New Testament text that reveals a fascinating understanding of Scripture when it comes to becoming prosperous, what it means to live life abundantly and God’s structure of wealth. As the author states, “Our purpose is to arrive at a perspective about wealth and poverty which is in accordance with scriptural teaching.” (p.xii)

Within this, and by combining academic research, Christian theology and the varying facets of human nature, the world, sin and righteousness, the author shed lights on what the Church’s social responsibilities to the poor are from a Biblical viewpoint, thus answering key questions that come to mind regarding wealth and possessions. Mentioning that God has given us spiritual and natural laws that govern the universe, the author helps readers also understand fundamentals that qualify Christians to partake of the goodness of God that involves a firm commitment to covenant that must be observed. The book also reveals the dangers of wealth, and what it means to truly prosper.

Such chapters as: The Creation – Fall Events, The Concept of Possession and Poverty Invaded by Creation and Fall Event, The Sinai – Covenant Event, Wealth and Poverty in the Old Testament, New Testament Wealth and Poverty, Living in Truth – Sanctification, Christ and the Rich, The Teachings of Paul and Soteriological Implications. These chapters further reveal Biblical truths in such a way that one will be forever enriched, offering a balanced scriptural mindset when it comes to wealth, poverty and the worship of the Lord.

This is a must-read for the entire Body of Christ to be made aware of truths that are within the Word of God.  With the modern prevalence of the prosperity Gospel and for the person that has questions (in regards to wealth, materialism, money, possessions, and how they relate to eternity), this book comes highly recommended. Well-written and concise, the transparency of this book will no doubt bring deep conviction while reminding Christians of the importance of stewardship with their possessions, time and influence. 

*Note: Our privilege in the service of God is not to be taken for granted -- this book brings enlightenment, education and inspiration to those who desire a true and firm commitment to the Lord.

Holiness Adorns Your house, O Lord, Forever

Psalm 93:5 Your testimonies are very sure; holiness adorns Your house, O Lord, forever.   

Heaven is adorned with holiness, which means NO one who is not holy will enter Heaven. Many claim they are on their way to Heaven, but will find when they pass away, they will be turned down. 

Matthew 7:21 states, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” Church attendance alone does not make a person holy, neither do good works. It’s not outward appearance, but an inward lifestyle that really counts. 

Obeying God’s commandments and living for Him in thought, word and deed start the process. God wants to work in and through you in a great way, but He needs a full commitment on your part. Jesus tells you, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Only Believe

Gideon - Only Believe 

About the author: RW Hahn was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He grew up in the inner-city and went to Miami Edison Sr. He graduated from Northwestern University in Radio/TV/Film with a Bachelor of Science degree. RW is an actor, director, and an award-winning screenwriter, as well.

Found by a single woman in an unused motel room, the baby boy seems to be nothing short of a miracle from the very beginning of his life. He is accompanied by a Bible, the Gideon Bible, hence his name. The inscription inside the Bible states: "It's a gift." 

Jenny relishes the role of becoming little Gideon's mother. Perhaps focusing on this little life will help her regain her own. Jenny brings Gideon to her secluded family home atop Dora Manor Mountain. She is so grateful to have received this precious child that, like barren Hannah in the Bible, she promises to dedicate Gideon to God, and reads to Gideon from the Bible day and night. She hides him, keeping him away from the townsfolk, the same people who killed her family . . . over a church.

As Gideon grows older, Jenny starts to realize just how special he is. Gideon truly believes in the word of God, and becomes Christ-like in his ability to heal through his belief.  It starts when he blesses the vegetable garden, which then produces huge, perfect fruit. Then when Scrappy the goat dies, Gideon blesses him, and the next thing Jenny knows, Scrappy is running through the yard, quite alive. 

Gideon knows he has a mission to fulfill. He needs to lead people to Jesus in order to save their souls. A gnarled hand. A blind eye. A club foot. A stutter. An unsaved man who dies and sees the gates of Hell, but Gideon brings him back so the man can live a purposeful life and go to Heaven when his time truly comes.

As word gets out, Jenny realizes people are going to want to see Gideon, and she will have to share him with the world, starting with the very people she's been shielding him from, the townsfolk. When they finally do all converge on the mountain, it is through Gideon that they realize it's time to put away their differences, their prejudices, and accept each other-whether black or white.  The story is told by a preacher who has run out of gas near a small church in the South. 

The congregation is expecting him; their late pastor told them on his deathbed that their new preacher would appear one day, having just run out of gas near the church. While the preacher has been speaking, another man has entered the church. He, too, is a pastor and he, too, has run out of gas near the church. He begins to preach, and the crowd goes wild with appreciation. This, surely, is the man they've been waiting for. Then he introduces himself: "I...killed...Gideon."

Kingdom Victory

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.  

There have been times when guards became distracted or fell asleep at their post, during those times an enemy slipped by them. God, who has promised to guard you, He will never slumber, Psalm 121:3. 

The other thing He has promised is that He will establish you. Some people seem to be established in problems, and others seemed to be established in the realm of confusion. God wants to work through you so that you are established in success. Notice what David said in Psalm 1:3 “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” The evil one doesn’t want you to prosper, but God wants to stop him from accomplishing his goal. Praise the Lord in a greater way today, because He is going to cause you to be victorious. 

For Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients

Title: 8 Steps to Getting Real with Cancer
By: Marianne C. McDonough
ISBN#978-0-9966977-0-5
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Written from a Christian perspective, Marianne C. McDonough offers readers hope through faith, prayer and trust in God, along with confidence, knowledge, strength and guidance upon hearing the diagnosis of the “C” word.

As a previous breast cancer survivor, the author writes with passion to bring newly-diagnosed cancer patients and those who love them a strong sense of empowerment to fight this invasive disease. 

With ease and candor, she presents facts about cancer, breaks down the myths surrounding cancer and ushers in truth within an 8-step guide to begin a positive path to healing and battling cancer. Intertwining her courageous fight against cancer and the ups and downs of her fight that include emotional, spiritual and physical aspects, the author encourages newly-diagnosed patients to get real with themselves and others, offering them positive wisdom for the journey ahead after a cancer diagnosis.

The 8-step guide highlights 8 initial evaluations and/or questions that patients ask themselves during this extremely stressful and difficult time such as: What do I know about cancer and believe to be true about myself as a cancer patient? How shall I interact with others, especially family members, friends and medical providers? How can I select the best treatment protocol? How do I feel about possibly dying? Where is God in all of this? What am I afraid of? How do I deal with stress? Do I dare hope for a future?

Offering real advice for real circumstances: This book is crucial during the initial diagnosis and beginning journey when one is faced with life-changing decisions that a cancer diagnosis brings.  

With an in-depth analysis of what getting real is, the author describes an introspective journey that brings strength, sensitivity, and inner clarity to patients and helps them make positive changes.
