The Greatest Of All Adoptions

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”  

Many children who have been born were not planned by their parents, and some were not wanted, however a lot of planning goes into preparing for an adoption.  God had very great plans for you when you were adopted into His family.  Remember it was not an afterthought or accident, because He wants you in His family.   Don’t allow the enemy to give you thoughts of worthlessness.  

You are of great value in the eyes of the Lord.  He has many plans for your life, and you need to allow the Holy Spirit to direct you, so that you complete the plans He has for you.  Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

New We Are Children of God

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.  

Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as his personal Savior is adopted into the family of God, and becomes a child of His.  Many of you have frailties now, but when you go to be with Him, you will be transformed to be like Him.  The defects you now have, will no longer be a part of you.  As a Child of God, you are part of His family, and can bring your needs to Him any time you want to.  You are able to receive His protection in times of need, every time you depend on His promises.  

You run into difficulties when you are bound by fear, doubt, or depend on your own strength.  Remember, God is your Heavenly Father, and wants to help you.  Bring your needs to Him today, asking Him for divine wisdom to direct you with the answers you will receive.

Key's To Wealth Through The Application Of Scripture

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. 

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

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.

It Is A Gift

New Book Release - RW HAHN - Gideon - Only Believe 

If a child is brought up without any outside influences but the word of God, what kind of child would he grow up to be? Gideon is one such child. 

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." 

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.

Book Review - Changed by a Catch

Title: Changed by a Catch
By: 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.

Changed by a Catch comes highly recommended for both boys and girls (ages 6 to 12) and is a fun way for parents and children to engage in learning life lessons in a fun way.

Available at Amazon or in Kindle

Christian Generosity

Luke 16:10 If you’re honest in small things, you’ll be honest in big things; if you’re a crook in small things, you’ll be a crook in big things. If you’re not honest in small jobs, who will put you in charge of the store?    

Generosity should start with your poverty, so when you are well off, you will have developed the habit of giving. When you are generous with your whole life, you will be generous with your giving. When you are stingy with your whole life, you will be re­luctant to give as well. 

Many people have said they could not afford to pay their tithes now, but in the meantime they are only “tipping” the Lord and become stingy people. 

They say when they get a lot of money they will give large amounts to the church. They are only fooling them­selves if they think they will change when they get rich. Jesus shows in the verses that you will not change.

An Inspiring And Insightful Read

New Book Release ~ In Letters to My Son Gary Bowen culminated from letters the author wrote to his beloved son during his incarceration in jail. Endearing, each letter expresses not only his thoughts, but preaches the Gospel of Truth as the author was led to instruct his son to get back on track with the Lord. 

After a series of arrests, it was later revealed that the son was hanging our kids that were considered “Goths” whom are believed to worship the devil. Revealing that there are only 2 paths to follow in this world, one is to serve God, and the other is to serve Satan.  The choice is yours as the author reiterates that just being a “good” person will not get you to Heaven, but confessing Christ with your mouth and believing in your heart that Jesus died and rose again to pay for your sins. 

Within this, the author’s instruction speaks to sons, but to all, encouraging them to follow God, most importantly reminding them to adhere to God’s words above all else as noted in Proverbs, presenting that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.  

Our Thoughts ~ Much instruction is given on our thoughts and a walk with the Lord that reiterates the importance of prayer, daily Bible reading and community within a church. 

Readers will find this read inspiring and insightful. It is the hopes of the author that others will read these letters to his son and become born again. With much Biblical wisdom, the author speaks truths into the hearts of those that have been deceived into serving the Father of Lies, Satan. 

This book comes highly recommended as an evangelistic tool to reach out to those who are lost and/or imprisoned and/or using drugs. ~ A CBM Book Review 10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars 

CBM Book Review, Karen K. Satterlee releases Stepping Out of the Pages

Karen K. Satterlee releases Stepping Out of the Pages 

Stepping Out of the Pages by Karen K. Satterlee brings Old and New Testament Bible characters to life through a series of fascinating monologues without compromising Scriptural truths.  Revealing each character’s thoughts, feelings and perspective, these stories bring understanding, faith and hope to readers. All the monologues are meant to be read individually or within a Bible Study Group. At the end of the book, a Study Guide is presented to bring a deeper study into each storyline. Inevitably, a chapter will bring light and life to your heart! ~ a wonderful must read, CBM

Beginning with Miriam’s perspective of watching her mother place baby Moses in the Nile, the author continues with Mary’s plight as the mother of Jesus.  Divided into 7 sections, the author shares insight into some well-known Biblical figures, and some others you may have never head of.  Such Biblical characters as the prodigal son are shared, continuing into the parable of the Great Banquet, and insights into Mary of Bethany (The Alabaster Box), Mary of Magdala, Jared’s lunch, Pilate’s Wife, Salome, the dinner guests at Emmaus, Elisha and the widow’s oil, the healing of Naaman, the raising of Lazarus, Midnight Praises (the Philippian jail), a miracle in Cana, the woman with the issue of blood, the Schunemite woman, Lot’s wife and much more with stories on Heaven’s bread (the role of bread in the Bible), the wedding garment (being properly dressed for the wedding Banquet). The last chapter ends in an encouraging challenge to use what God gives us. 

Creative and unique, in that the author helps readers identify with these characters of the Bible that will bring insight and revelation into their own circumstances. 

The Biblical principles are not compromised, which gives a fascinating viewpoint of why these stories were written – they were written for us: to teach, instruct, edify and comfort. 

The author also has done an excellent job in providing metaphors that relate to our modern life today, bringing these ancient Biblical characters into our every day life, thus revealing a relevancy that stands the test of time and gives readers the truth of God’s Word.

Karen K. Satterlee also recommends that these monologues can be used and portrayed in churches as skits to bring meaning and understanding in a creative and artistic framework that can be performed in full costume on the stage. This book comes highly recommended as a book that brings glory and honor to God.
