Redefining Grace: Living by His Presence and Moving in His Power

We have only scratched the surface of what God’s grace means!   Perhaps no other truth has experienced more controversy and counterfeit than the grace of God. The word “grace” is frequently used in the Christian community to speak of our undeserved salvation or an extra dose of spiritual strength.   But there is so much more to the grace of God. Indeed, we have only scratched the surface of the ocean that is the supernatural power of God’s grace!   In this landmark book, Phill Urena reveals that grace is, in fact, the most powerful force in the universe! But to access this supernatural power, we must understand it’s true meaning and learn how to apply it. Phill Urena has experienced miracle after miracle - even the dead being raised - by learning how to access the life-giving flow of God's grace.   In Redefining Grace, you will learn how to: Partner with God to manifest His character and power.Walk in freedom from religious bondage and failure.Operate in the miraculous dimension of grace, releasing healing, deliverance, and miracles.Enjoy a deeper more intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit.Stop believing you are a “sinner” and start living like a “saint.”   Remove the shackles of guilt, shame, and religion! It’s time you discovered the abundant life that Jesus promised by encountering the fullness of God’s grace!

The Triple Path

We've lost something. Society's increasing secularization has stripped the sacred from our lives and culture—jettisoning much that is bright and good in exchange for dark, dull substitutes.Every human society has had religion—has needed religion. It is foolish to think ours is any different.But at the same time, the ancient cosmologies and disproved beliefs of the world's major religions feel increasingly dissatisfying and irrelevant to growing numbers of people.The Triple Path offers a solution—it sets forth a new monotheistic religion that harmonizes and reconciles our great Western heritage with modernity, but with an emphasis on keeping as much as possible of the teachings and practices of Western tradition.When you honestly appraise yourself and your life, could you be aiming higher? Perhaps existence is calling to you to do more, to be more. Perhaps the Triple Path is calling to you. Test its fruits for yourself. Come back to religion and God.

The Trojan Horse of Tithing: How Tithe Traditions Have Undermined A Pure Gospel Message

The Trojan Horse Of Tithing is a plea to Christian leaders, written from a Charismatic/Pentecostal perspective. Jonathan Brenneman exposes the inherent problems with common tithe teachings, highlighting serious issues with even so-called “grace tithing.” He demonstrates how deception starts subtly and documents the growing acceptance in mainstream Christianity of even overt teachings of salvation by tithing. Millions of people today now believe they will never even enter heaven without their tithes. No matter how much we try to dress tithe teachings up as grace, they continue to be the root of serious problems.The arguments contained here against the modern tithe tradition are thorough, compelling, and overwhelming. The gospel is worth giving not only our money but even our lives to promote. However, modern tithe traditions have no place in this because they are not based on truth and misrepresent the way God relates to people. Rather than helping to advance, the gospel, they distort it. God is calling his church to get rid of the leaven and return to a powerful and pure gospel message!The Trojan Horse of Tithing is one of the most comprehensive overviews of multiple arguments against tithing. It also makes a compelling case as to why tithing is incompatible with the gospel and deals thoroughly with less logical but emotionally powerful objections such as “but tithing works!” We include:What could have possibly convinced strong proponents of tithing such as Derek Prince to change their minds?Documentation and evidence of the extent of literal “salvation by tithing” doctrine in today’s churches, and demonstration that this is the logical implication of even many of the most common so-called “grace tithing” teachings.Dozens of serious logical problems with all of the common pro-tithing arguments.A historical study on Melchizedeck and the related terms “El Elyon,” “Zedek,” “Salem,” “Heaven,” and “Earth.”11 commandments of God that churches regularly break for their tithe tradition.9 serious problems with using Malachi as support for Christian tithing.The history of tithing.Contrast between the Babylonian tithe and the Jewish tithe. Which is our modern tithe tradition based on?How the modern tithe tradition violates the statutes and the basic principles of the Jewish tithe.What tithing and witchcraft have in common.How tithing undermines Spirit-led giving.How people are stepping into supernatural giving and supernatural provision without the tithe.The historical and cultural context of ministerial support in scripture.Why some of the world’s most successful church planters see tithing as a hindrance to church multiplication.How tithe teachings promote a poverty spirit.A prophetic dream for the church.

The Book of Giving: How the God Who Gives Can Make Us Givers

Giving changes everything. It will change your heart. And then it will change the world. That's not because being generous is "good." It's because God changes the world through giving. God so loved the world that he gave. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have a giving circle, and they've invited us into it. The more we give, the more we resemble the God who is always giving himself to us. Giving our time, our attention, our resources to others is what life is all about. In this book, you'll learn why and how. You'll be transformed into someone who finds joy in giving, and thus who finds joy in the very nature of God. The Book of Giving is an antidote for the selfishness that tears our world apart. God is restoring all things. And he's doing it through giving. Come and be a part of it all.   

Daniel, Man of God: Being a Man of Character in a Babylon World

Original Title: Daniel the Prophet. New, updated edition.Riches and honour and life are the remuneration of humility and of the fear of the LORD. – Proverbs 22:4God will exalt us when the time is right. We needn't try to promote ourselves; we needn't struggle for position. Let God put us where He wants us and let us be true to God. It is better for a man to be right with God, even if he holds no great earthly position. It is honest and humble men whom God will promote, if He so desires.This study illustrates what Daniel did, and also what Daniel didn't do, which caught the attention of God and kings alike. Few are the men in history of Daniel's caliber, even though the principles he followed can be implemented by all. Are you ready to be a truly great man, one that will cause God and men to take notice? About the AuthorDwight L. Moody, determined to make a fortune, arrived in Chicago and started selling shoes. But Christ found him and his energies were redirected into full-time ministry. And what a ministry it was. Today, Moody's name still graces a church, a mission, a college, and more. Moody loved God and men, and the power of a love like that impacts generations.

Faithful to Christ: A Challenge to Truly Live for Christ

Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. - 1 Samuel 12:24If there is a true faith, there must be a declaration of it. If you are a candle, and God has lit you, then let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in the heavens (Matthew 5:16). Soldiers of Christ must, like soldiers of our nation, wear their uniforms; and if they are ashamed of their uniforms, they ought to be drummed out of the army. I believe that many Christians get into a lot of trouble by not being honest in their convictions. For instance, if a person goes into a workshop, or a soldier into a barracks, and if he does not fly his flag from the beginning, it will be very difficult for him to run it up afterwards. But if he immediately and boldly lets them know, “I am a Christian, and there are certain things that I cannot do to please you, and certain other things that I cannot help doing even though they might displease you” – when that is clearly understood, after a while the peculiarity of the thing will be gone, and the person will be let alone. However, if he is a little dishonest and thinks that he is going to please the world and please Christ too, he can depend on it that he is in for a rough time. If he tries the way of compromise, his life will be like that of a toad under a harrow or a fox in a dog kennel. That will never do. Come out. Show your colors. Let it be known who you are and what you are. Although your course will not be smooth, it will certainly not be half as rough as if you tried to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds, which is a very difficult piece of business. - Charles H.

Morning by Morning [Annotated, Updated]: Daily Devotional Readings

Morning by MorningCharles H. Spurgeon’s devotionals Morning by Morning and Evening by Evening have inspired, encouraged, and challenged Christians for generations. Spurgeon, with his masterful hand, carefully selected his text from throughout the Bible and covered a broad range of topics, in order to present a well-balanced and fruitful daily devotional for readers both young and old. Now updated into more-modern English for today’s readers, and again separated into two volumes as originally published, with morning devotionals in one volume and evening devotionals in the second. We chose a 11-point font for the sake of legibility, and formatted the devotionals so each fits on a single page.January 1(Sample Devotional)They ate some of the yield of the land of Canaan during that year. (Joshua 5:12)Israel’s weary wanderings were over, and the promised rest was attained. There would be no more moving tents, fiery serpents, fierce Amalekites, and howling wildernesses. They came to the land that flowed with milk and honey, and they ate some of the produce of the land (Joshua 5:11). Perhaps this year, beloved Christian reader, this may be your case or mine. The prospect is joyful, and if faith is active, it will yield absolute delight. To be with Jesus in the rest that remains for the people of God (Hebrews 4:9) is an encouraging hope indeed, and to expect this glory so soon is a double delight.Unbelief shudders at the Jordan River that still flows between us and the good land, but let us rest assured that we have already experienced more affliction than death at its worst can cause us. Let us dispel every fearful thought and rejoice with exceedingly great joy in the prospect that this year we will begin to be forever with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:17).A part of the multitude of saints will remain this year on earth to do service for their Lord. If we are in this group, there is no reason why the New Year’s text should not still be true. We who have believed enter that rest (Hebrews 4:3). The Holy Spirit is the pledge of our inheritance. He gives us “glory begun below.” In heaven they are secure, and on earth we are preserved in Christ Jesus. There they triumph over their enemies, and we have victories too. Celestial spirits enjoy communion with their Lord, and this is not denied to us here on earth. There they rest in His love, and here we have perfect peace in Him. They sing His praise in heaven, and it is our privilege to do the same here. We will gather celestial fruits on earthly ground this year, where faith and hope have made the desert like the garden of the Lord. Man ate angels’ food long ago, and why can we not do so now?O for grace to feed on Jesus and to eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan this year! About the AuthorCharles Haddon (C. H.) Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British Baptist preacher. He started preaching at age 17 and quickly became famous.

The Cross [Annotated, Updated]: Crucified with Christ, and Christ Alive in Me

I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20I want to tell you what perhaps the greatest Christian who ever lived (the Apostle Paul) thought of the cross of Christ. Believe me, the cross is of deepest importance. This is no mere question of controversy; this is not one of those points on which men may agree to differ and feel that differences will not shut them out of heaven. A man must be right on this subject, or he is lost forever. Heaven or hell, happiness or misery, life or death, blessing or cursing in the last day – all hinges on the answer to this question: “What do you think about the cross of Christ?”Let me show you:1. What the apostle Paul did not glory in.2. What Paul did glory in.3. Why all Christians should think and feel about the cross like Paul.About the AuthorJohn Charles Ryle (1816-1900) graduated from Eton and Oxford and then pursued a career in politics, but due to lack of funds, he entered the clergy of the Church of England. He was a contemporary of Spurgeon, Moody, Mueller, and Taylor and read the great theologians like Wesley, Bunyan, Knox, Calvin, and Luther. These all influenced Ryle’s understanding and theology. Ryle began his writing career with a tract following the Great Yarmouth suspension bridge tragedy, where more than a hundred people drowned. He gained a reputation for straightforward preaching and evangelism. He travelled, preached, and wrote more than 300 pamphlets, tracts, and books, including Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Principles for Churchmen, and Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century. Ryle used the royalties from his writing to pay his father’s debts, but he also felt indebted to that ruin for changing the direction of his life. He was recommended by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to be Bishop of Liverpool where he ended his career in 1900.

Contextual Theology: Skills and Practices of Liberating Faith (Routledge New Critical Thinking in Religion, Theology and Biblical Studies)

This book advances that history by exploring stories, images and discourses across a worldwide range of geographical, cultural and confessional contexts. Its twelve authors not only enrich our understanding of the significance of the contextual method, but also produce a new range of original ways of doing theology in contemporary situations. The authors discuss some prioritised thematic perspectives with an emphasis on liberating paths, and expand the ongoing discussion on the methodology of theology into new areas. Themes such as interreligious plurality, global capitalism, ecumenical liberation theology, eco-anxiety and the anthropocene, postcolonialism, gender, neo-pentecostalism, world theology, and reconciliation are examined in situated depth. Additionally, voices from Indigenous lands, Latin America, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe and North America enter into a dialogue on what it means to contextualise theology in an increasingly globalised and ever-changing world.Such a comprehensive discussion of new ways of thinking about and doing contextual theology will be of great use to scholars in Theology, Religious Studies, Cultural Studies, Political Science, Gender Studies, Environmental Humanities, and Global Studies.

(Song of Solomon 1:4) We will rejoice in you and be glad. We will not open the gates of the year with the notes of a mournful song, but with the sweet strains of the harp of joy and the high-sounding cymbals of gladness. O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation (Psalm 95:1). We, the called and faithful and chosen, will drive away our griefs and set up our banners of confidence in the name of God. Let others lament over their troubles, while we who have the sweetening tree to cast into Marah’s bitter water (Exodus 15:23-25) will magnify the Lord with joy! Eternal Spirit, our powerful Comforter – we who are the temples in which You dwell will never stop adoring and blessing the name of Jesus. We will rejoice, for we are resolved to do so. Jesus must have the crown of our heart’s delight. We will not dishonor our Bridegroom by mourning in His presence. We are ordained to be the singers of the skies. Let us rehearse our everlasting anthem before we sing it in the halls of the New Jerusalem. We will be glad and rejoice. Glad and rejoice are two words with one sense: double joy, blessedness upon blessedness. Does there need to be any limit to our rejoicing in the Lord even now? Do not men and women of grace find their Lord to be nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon even now (Song of Solomon 4:14)? And what better fragrance could they have in heaven itself? We will be glad and rejoice in You. That last word – You, Jesus – is the delicacy in the dish, the kernel of the nut, and the soul of the text. What joys are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite delight have their source and every drop of their fullness in Him! Since, O sweet Lord Jesus, You are the present portion of Your people, favor us this year with such a sense of Your preciousness that from its first day to its last we may be glad and rejoice in You.Let your January open with joy in the Lord, and close your December with gladness in Jesus.

Deliverance From Satanic Soldiers: Deliverance Prayers (Deliverance by Fire)

Down outright now, there are demons, under the supervision of the devil, that are being trained to harm the human-kind very soon. It is going to be a time of stern indignation, wrath of intense severity and one of most terrifying things in the history of the world. These satanic soldiers will be released from the Abyss (bottomless pit) and a place of fallen angels to torment the unrepentant people of the earth. Amidst the smoke from this pit, demons will come out like locust in their large numbers to harm the people of the earth. They will have the mobility of Locust and the horrible sting of scorpions. At that time, men on earth will desire to die but will not be able to die. In the first century B.C. Cornelius Gallus, a Roman Poet wrote; worse than any wound is the wish to die and yet not be able to do so.
