The Cancer Earthquake

December 25, 2014 would be a Christmas to remember for my wife and me. After a wild pre-dawn rush to a Florida emergency room, our new detour began – the cancer earthquake had shaken our family. We both were shell-shocked to hear the term “lymphoma” and realized we had to act immediately upon the advice of the ER doctor. Our life was now on hold.To make matters worse, we were 1000 miles from home with no friends, family, and our church family. However, we were never really alone as our Lord Jesus Christ was with us every step of the way.

How could we use this trial of life to help others? We immediately were burdened to write a book from the aspect of patient and caregiver, since each faces different challenges.

This book is a chronological journal of the days and weeks of our five month journey with cancer and chemo, our ups and our downs, our innermost feelings, and the marvelous way the Lord guided us to fight back and endure. His provision, protection, and daily guidance from the Scriptures and Holy Spirit amazed us.

Read our story and see how God can be an ever present Help when you face any trouble, too!

Speaking in Tongues

244556772At an influential time in my life as a teenager, I was taught that speaking in tongues is a heavenly language (the baptism in the Holy Spirit, they said) a necessity and the doorway to the Gifts of the Spirit. They taught us that those speaking in tongues were walking close to God. I followed their teaching to the point of even becoming a Pentecostal preacher.

But God began to convict me that this teaching was NOT at all what the Scriptures taught. This book explains how I was deceived and the truths that helped me “come out” when I became serious enough to know… What the Bible says about Speaking in Tongues.

Rescue 911 – Spiritual Diseases

36761063The recent outbreak of obesity in our nation has the medical field scrambling with treatments of diet, medication, and exercise.

Gifts of the Spirit

36789013The Bible is clear that God provides the church with special gifts to operate with power and be effective. To deny or ignore these gifts is a fatal mistake. To misuse them is a grievous error.

Bible believing churches and Christians must understand this important teaching. While we emphasize so many topics over and over again, we often skim over this one. Few Bible believing authors and pastors deal with it other than a cursory mention in passing. Indeed, Paul wrote,

1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

Gifts of the Spirit is a one of a kind book that surveys the eighteen New Testament Gifts giving examples, uses, tendencies, and warnings.

A pastor is faced with folks who need to know the answer to this question of whether they need to wear an artificial head covering or not. Here is a brief, yet thorough book he can place in their hands. May God use this volume to clear the air for many honest seekers.
