Every once in a while a book challenges us on what we think we know or have been taught. On the subject of tithing, many people have opinions, thoughts and interpretations about what tithing means in the Bible, but rarely have people done a complete empirical study on this biblical practice from eons past and its requirement in the New Testament Church. Some believe that the most effective way to teach tithing is to interpret it as paying a tenth of income to the church in perpetuity. Certainly no other biblical doctrine has caused such consternation as when monetary tithing is challenged. Therefore, this book deals, not with theories and opinions about monetary tithing but with well-proven theology, scriptural principles, hermeneutical facts and the Hebrew language to define what tithing really is and is not. Journey through the pages of the Bible to find the untwisted truth about the centuries-old teachings on tithes and offerings.

Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

“Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.
If you find yourself asking that question, where is the evidence of our living God, one does not have to look any further than Kingman State Prison. For on that little speck of sand we call Kingman Arizona there sits a place I would dare say was unlike any other prison in the country or perhaps in the entire world.
For it was there that I witnessed and was part of the many incredible miracles of the workings of God. I’ve seen inmates healed who were suffering from sickness, disease, broken hearts, and broken lives. All healed by the power of God through the hands and prayers of His faithful children. I’ve seen relationships restored, family members and inmates healed of illnesses like cancer, Hep-C, and diabetes through the intercessory prayers of the faithful Brothers in Christ at Kingman State Prison.
And like that Christmas newspaper article of so many years ago. “Yes, Virginia, there is a living God who loves each and everyone of us. Abba Father is standing next to you right now, and He is inviting you to receive His Son Christ Yeshua into your life.”
Revelation 3:20-21 Behold I stand at the door and knock if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He ga
This human life is very precious. The Supreme God has given us invaluable and wonderful body. Do not let this life go waste in materialistic desires otherwise you will have to repent in the last days of your life. People are worshiping one deity or the other for peace of mind, wealth, children or for any other reason. But the people should be sure whether they are worshiping the Supreme God who made the Sun and other billions of stars, moon and other satellites, earth and other planets, oceans, human beings of about 200 countries on the earth and other organisms or believing on imaginary stories because this human life is a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY for us to find Supreme God, truth and get salvation. If we let this life go waste, we do not know in which form our next birth will be. We may be an animal or a bird in next birth.Stop to follow the crowd blindly. Only true methods to praise and love the Supreme God can give us salvation. Rest depends on you because it is your life.As human beings, we are on earth for a limited time only. This life and all the events related to this life are only illusions and nothing is real. Do not get fear of anything as nothing is real. The life of us and our children is not true because true is that which prevails forever. We are only souls. Our aim is to enter into Super-soul i.e. Supreme God. Believe me, you will have to repent in the last moments of your life if you spend time in materialistic life.
If we take two rounds along the surface of the Mobius strip we get 360 degrees shift in our position & reach our original state. The path can be divided in four phases of 90 degrees each.
If we see the cycle of transformation of energy in stars, it depends upon gravity & the opposite force responsible for expansion.
In a solar system, we can divide the elliptical path of a planet in 360 degrees. The path is a result of two opposite forces, gravity by the star & the speed of revolution of planet.
The two forces are never in balance but keep dominating each other. In the universe, energy expanded after the Big Bang, and then it transformed into gas clouds, suns & black holes after which the cycle repeats.
In our life as well every activity has four phases. We become ignorant, show anger, fall in depression & regain our normal state. Small activities go on inside the bigger cycle. We take birth, grow as a child, reach adulthood, mid age, old age & then we die.
Energy follows a cycle but we need to grow progressively & it depends upon our consciousness.
This book is based on my research and translations of the ancient literatures, the conclusions that I have drawn based on my translations, as to what Shiva possibly could have meant. You can read the translations at my blog https://ancientinsight.online.
At a very high level, a contextual translation of the ancient literatures indicate that Shiva is the environment that gets created due to the vibration(OM) yielding to the turbulence (Rudra) that is present in the Isha (a set of potentials). A constriction in the entanglement (created due to the turbulence), creates a Linga and causes a part of the vibration (OM) to hang perpendicular to this system. These vibrations circle over themselves and come back and meet the entanglement, creating an environment of directed and reflected vibrations which then supports the formation of impulses which then grows to become awareness and beings. This environment is sustained by the Linga and the turbulence each ensuring that the other does not fade away.
The book follows through from the Bhagavad Gita’s Kshetra-Kshetragyana-Yoga (Chapter 13) that describes the environment, the nature of the become and the soul of the becoming, to the Kalabhairava Ashtakam that describes the dimensions of the awareness to the Shiva Tandava sthotram that describes the creation of this environment, to show why Shiva actually is a concept and is the environment that is formed.
Welcome to a peek into the lives of some devout Christians. Meet Clifford and Sandra Campbell, happily married for ten years, until Sandra ‘gives her heart to Jesus,’ and her body becomes the ‘temple of the living God.’
Listen to the charismatic Pastor Gerald Panton, as he electrifies his congregation, and wrestles with his educated and outspoken wife, Catherine. The charming Timothy and Beatrice Henriquez, will impress you with their dogged determination, simplicity and piety. And you may like, or even dislike the uncompromising Deacon Barrington Duncan and his sophisticated wife, Cindy. But, Hector and Jasmine Blackstock, will serve you a treat you’ll never forget.
When deep spiritual thoughts heighten Clifford Campbell’s search for the path to heaven, he is raptured in a startling vision. But Clifford’s wife, Sandra, and some Christian stalwarts from Earth, are missing from the heavenly throng. What will Heaven’s Open Book divulge?
The revelations are instantaneous, detailed, and shocking. But when the smoke clears, Heaven’s Open Book, is a blessing in disguise.
When you said yes to Jesus, you immediately became a living soul. You were reborn as a new creation but as a baby. The process of Christianity then is that through knowledge, faith and practice we come into maturity.
When you said yes to Jesus, you took on His power, authority, and identity (your real/true/authentic identity). This book examines some of the foundational principles that we can begin to apply to our lives immediately. While it is designed for new believers, it is also for most Christians who got stuck at the baby stage due to indoctrination.
It is time for believers to start living in the reality of who we are in Christ. Our Identity in Christ has been restored and revealed; it is time to initiate.
The Hardest thing in Ministry… is Keeping the Ministry Pure… this book is written to apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. In the last days there is a great falling away… and it is here now. The son’s of Issachar, knew the times in which they lived and they knew what to do.Many Ministers know the time in which we live… but few really know what to do, because of the great deception that is operating in our time. The beauty of deception is that you do not know that your are being deceived. We know a great falling away is come, but we must realize that most of this falling away will come through leadership.. for where the head goes, the body follows. Are we producing the caliber of Christian that we see in the Book of Acts? We must go back to the methods that raised the caliber of Christians Disciple, that turns the world upside down… for it is not about our programs, events, performance or numbers… how many we attract and keep… it is about what we are truly producing at the end of the day. We can no longer raise a generation of people who pick and choose, serving Christ on there own terms. Again, where the head goes, the body follows… so it is time for leadership to get back to the purity of the Gospel. 100% of the proceeds of this book will go to support mission efforts of Shepherds Of Grace International.
