Summary

A God chaser is a person whose passion for God's presence presses him to chase the impossible in hopes that the uncatchable might catch him. A child chases a loving parent until, suddenly, the strong arms of the father enfold the chaser. The pursuer becomes the captive; the pursued the captor. Paul put it this way: "I chase after that I may catch that which apprehended me" (Phil. 3:12).

Job was a God chaser. He said, "Oh that I knew where I might find Him!" David was one; he said, "My soul followeth hard after Thee." Paul was one too: "That I may know Him..." The passionate paths of God chasers can be traced across the pages of history from Moses the stutterer, David the singer, and Paul the itinerant preacher, to contemporaries like A.W. Tozer, Leonard Ravenhill, and countless others who share one common bond: an insatiable hunger to know their Lord. These are people whose relentless, passionate pursuit of Christ often made them appear foolish in the eyes of others. Yet, having tasted His goodness and glimpsed the invisible, they could be satisfied with nothing less.

Add your name to the list...become a God chaser. Who know? You might be one whom He catches.

Although little is known about Elizabeth Dabney's youth, she often said she learned the value of prayer from her mother, who always kept a family altar in their home.

Summary

An open letter to the 21st century church, from the 21st church; The Heart Condition is The conversation about the elephant(s) in the room that we have for too long ignored.

 

'Modern living' and its comforts have undoubtedly led to a compromise in the condition of our hearts, and consequently; faith, belief and our ability to relate with an eternal God have all suffered. A poorly manifested version of God's truth in and through our lives is what we see as a result.

 

This book provides a conscious move away from today's heuristic twist on Christianity – a cult of celebrity, secularism, personality, soulish-emotionalism, compromise and gold; toward a more perfect 'Christ-centred' existence. A must read for Christians everywhere.

Summary

There are Godly altars and satanic altars. There are gates of Godly blessings, and there are gates of curses and spiritual attacks. Also, there are Godly covenants as well as satanic and ungodly covenants. Many of the things that you see and experience in your life and ministry are because of existing altars, spiritual gates, and covenants – positive or negative, known or unknown. Altars may be raised to bless or curse, promote or pull down a person or a group of people, and to enhance a cause or to frustrate it. Spiritual gates may manifest by strange occurrences in someone’s life. But no matter how it may manifest, if the person involved settles the issue with repentance, renunciation, prayer, and speaking forth the Word of God, the devil will bow and his works will be destroyed.

Summary

God has a destiny for you. He wants you to be a breaker, to be empowered by the Breaker. When the spirit of the Breaker comes upon you, you will become a breaker. You will break things open and the glory will descent, along with the King of Glory.Micah 2:13 "The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them."The word breaker in Hebrew is parats (paw-rats'). It means to break out, to break down, to break away, to burst out and to increase. The breaker is one who is breaking out of the veil of limitation, breaking down any hindrance, breaking away any encumbrance, bursting out of areas where there have been any limitations and bringing increase.

Summary

"Believe me, count as lost each day you have not used in loving God." — Brother Lawrence


This simply written little book about prayer and Christian life conveys a humble man's thoughts on the importance of experiencing God's love. A seventeenth-century French Carmelite, Brother Lawrence spent much of his time in the kitchen of a Paris monastery. Of this experience, he said: "The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen … I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament."


A collection of Lawrence's messages given to those who lived around him, this book contains The Practice of the Presence of God and The Spiritual Maxims. Both have much to say to modern man about living a spiritual life in a busy world. More widely read today than ever, these two classics — each an easily accessible primer of practical Christian devotion — comprise a particularly good selection with which to begin spiritual studies.

Summary

Altars are dedicated places for offering sacrifices to deities. Until the sacrificial Crucifixion of Christ - our ultimate Sacrificial Lamb on the Cross, which abolished the use of animals to sacrifice to God for various purposes, it was the focal point of Worship for those desiring to obey God. Raising and ministering on altars was a prophetic responsibility, priests were called to fulfill. Our spiritual Patriarch Abraham raised several altars on which he sacrificed to God. Isaac and Jacob did the same. Raising and Ministering on Altars was the center of worship for the Patriarchs, Judges and Kings of Israel until Jesus came. Today, Pastoral Ministry in every local Church is carried out on the Altar. Preachers preach from Altars, Communion is served from Altars, Marriage Covenants are sealed at Altars, yet few have a full understanding of the power and significance of the Altar. Evil ministers of Satan make use of altars daily without which they can barely operate. These evil activities can be destroyed, if we know what they are, where they are and what we can do to render their activities powerless. The followers of Jesus are empowered by Him to "Occupy until I return." Jesus said: "I give you ALL Authority over ALL the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means harm you." We have been authorized to set the captives free! We welcome you to learn, for "My people perish for a lack of knowledge." it's time you no longer are "ignorant of the enemy's devices."

Summary

Are believers really allowed to appear in the court of heaven?
In the last few years, an increasing number of believers have appeared in the courts of heaven to answer accusations that were brought against them by an adversary. As a result of their appearance, illnesses have vanished, legal proceedings against them have been halted and demonic attacks have suddenly stopped. These things cannot all be written off as coincidence. Many Christians have been surprised when they first hear the courts of heaven exist. Many more have been shocked at how their lives have changed after appearing in court and facing their adversary. The courts are places where the legal proceedings of heaven are carried out. Cases are brought before a Judge, witnesses testify and rulings are handed down. Just like in a human court, if an accusation is brought against us in the court of heaven and it goes unanswered, it can cause trouble. Many of us are being accused right now by an adversary in the court of heaven and aren't aware of it.With the same down-to-earth teaching style used in Traveling in the Spirit Made Simple and Divine Healing Made Simple, Praying Medic clearly explains what the courts are and why we may want to appear in them. After reading the Bible-based teaching, testimonies and simple illustrations provided in this book, even the least experienced believer will be able to boldly go before the court and obtain victory. This book answers the most common questions people have about the courts of heaven. Why, when and how we can appear there and how to obtain victory over an accuser. There's even a simple, step-by-step protocol provided at the end of the book that shows you exactly what to say and what not to say.

 “I used to drink,” writes John Bradshaw, "to solve the problems caused by drinking. The more I drank to relieve my shame-based loneliness and hurt, the more I felt ashamed.”

Shame is the motivator behind our toxic behaviours: the compulsion, co-dependency, addiction, and drive to super achieve that breaks down the family and destroys personal lives. It limits the development of self-esteem and causes anxiety and depression, and limits our ability to be connected in relationships.  This book has helped millions identify their personal shame, understand the underlying reasons for it, address these root causes, and release themselves from the shame that binds them to their past failures. 

John’s works are published in 42 languages. All over the world, corporations, institutions, treatment centres, therapists, and counsellors use the theories and therapies presented in his workshops.

 This New York Times #1 Best Seller, HEALING THE SHAME THAT BINDS YOU is John Bradshaw’s most enduring work. In it, he shows how unhealthy toxic shame is the core component of our compulsions including, codependency, lying, addiction, and the drive to super-achiever or underachieve. This toxic shame, most often experienced in childhood, results in the breakdown of our self-esteem, the destruction of the family system, an inability to move forward and form lasting intimate relationships in our lives. 

This book HEALING THE SHAME THAT BONDS YOU is recommended for academic, professional, private, public, and personal libraries and those seeking the one great thing that is missing in their life--WHOLENESS. 

People who bought this series HEALING THE SHAME THAT BINDS YOU, with John Bradshaw also bought the series, HEALING THE SHAME THAT BINDS YOU, BRADSHAW ON: THE FAMILY, A THEOLOGY OF ADDICTION, THE CORE OF SPIRITUALITY, and THE SHAME BASED FAMILY.

Summary

For most Christians, the courts of heaven are still an unfamiliar concept, but that is changing rapidly. More and more believers are experiencing, that praying from a courtroom perspective, is finally ending the injustice being inflicted on them. There are two parts in this book. Ronald explains in the first part the Biblical foundation for the existence of the courts of heaven and what our mandate is to pray there. Subjects like the power of the covenant and why we need God as our Judge, are extensively dealt with. He also explains in which court we should present our case and with what attitude we should enter this court. In part two, the practical application, the reader is assisted with the preparation of their court case, establishing the matter of guilt and preparing their plea. The reader is then able to present his case to the heavenly Judge, using the written prayers in this book. Then Ronald explains how to execute the written judgment, that we receive from the heavenly Judge. The revelation of the courts of heaven is a revelation from God and it has been hidden for centuries. Since the victory of Christ on the cross, believers are able to condemn every voice, that speaks against them in court. This book is a powerful tool how do

Summary

In this landmark work, Foster examines the “streams of living water” –– the six dimensions of faith and practice that define Christian tradition. He lifts up the enduring character of each tradition and shows how a variety of practices, from individual study and retreat to disciplines of service and community, are all essential elements of growth and maturity. Foster examines the unique contributions of each of these traditions and offers as examples the inspiring stories of faithful people whose lives defined each of these “streams.”

Summary

This book, though a complementary volume to Groundwork of Biblical Studies (David Stacey), stands in its own right as an introduction to the theological study of the Ol Testament. Though written with Methodist local preachers on trial in mind, it should also be of considerable use to those who are neither preachers nor Methodists.

Henry McKeating is Principal of Wesley College, Bristol. He has written Living with Guilt, God and the Future and the Cambridge Bible Commentary on Amos, Hosea and Micah.

Summary

No matter what leadership arena a person serves in-whether leading a family, a church, a civic organization, a company-adopting the leadership example of Jesus will make that person more effective and productive. Leadership is influence, and no leader has had greater influence on the world than Jesus Christ. The lessons of His leadership style are practical, learnable skills that anyone can apply today. Michael Youssef, who has executive experience in worldwide ministries, has examined the leadership Jesus modeled and suggests Christlike qualities every leader needs. But he doesn't stop there. With Jesus as the standard, Dr. Youssef considers how to deal with the temptations and pressures leaders face, including ego, anger, loneliness, criticism, the use of power, and passing the torch to others. Men and women in search of excellence in developing their leadership abilities will find much to aid their quest in this close-up look at Jesus-the greatest leader who ever lived.

Summary

How to Wage Spiritual Warfare in the Last Days
An important spiritual law was revealed by Jesus in Luke 11:21-22 and Matthew 12:29, "How can one enter into a strongman's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strongman? And then he will spoil his house."
Now, instead of "binding" symptoms, we can attack the sixteen strongmen or demonic spirits mentioned by name in the Bible! If God names them, they are real, and He has given us dominion over them through the Name of Jesus!


In easy to understand language this book...

  • Teaches how to zero in on and quickly identify the strongman in every situation

  • Illustrates each strongman by a tree showing the fruits or symptoms for quick identification

  • Instructs how to bind the enemy and loose the power of God according to Matthew 18:18

  • Provides instant recognition when and where Satan is attacking our lives and the lives of those around us

  • Shows that God wants us to be free from Satan's hassles so that we can reach this world for Christ.

Strongman's His Name...What's His Game offers a scriptural, balanced, and uplifting approach to present-day spiritual warfare.

Summary (MEN)

A record of one man's journey to find his "true masculinity" and his way out of co-dependent and addictive relationships. It's a book for all men and women who grew up in dysfunctional families and are now ready for some fresh insights into their past and their pain. It's a story about feelings - losing them, finding them and finally expressing them. Here you will find people you know; will discover a way out of the pain and see that it really is OK to express yourself without fear. The book is about grieving, a very misunderstood process often confused with self-pity. Open the doors to understanding - men will understand themselves and each other, and women will more deeply understand men, learn how to be with wounded men and still take care of themselves.

Summary (2nd edition)

A Compendium Of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship

The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels is unique among reference books on the Bible, the first volume of its kind since James Hastings published his Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels in 1909. In the more than eight decades since Hastings, our understanding of Jesus, the Evangelists and their world has grown remarkably. New interpretive methods illumined the text, the ever-changing profile of modern culture has put new questions to the Gospels, and our understanding of the Judaism of Jesus's day has advanced in ways that could not have been predicted in Hastings's day. But for many readers of the Gospels, the new outlook on the Gospels remains hidden within technical journals and academic monographs.

The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels bridges the gap between scholars and those pastors, teachers, students and laypeople desiring in-depth treatment of select topics in an accessible and summary format. The topics range from cross-sectional themes (such as faith, law, Sabbath) to methods of interpretation (such as form criticism, redaction criticism, sociological approaches), from key events (such as the birth, temptation and death of Jesus) to each of the four Gospels as a whole. Some articles - such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, rabbinic traditions and revolutionary movements at the time of Jesus - provide significant background information to the Gospels. Others reflect recent and less familiar issues in Jesus and Gospel studies, such as divine man, ancient rhetoric and the chreiai.

Contemporary concerns of general interest are discussed in articles covering such topics as healing, the demonic and the historical reliability of the Gospels. And for those entrusted with communicating the message of the Gospels, there is an extensive article on preaching from the Gospels.

The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels present the fruit of evangelical New Testament scholarship at the end of the twentieth century - committed to the authority of Scripture, utilising the best of critical methods, and maintaining dialogue with contemporary scholarship and challenges facing the church.
