In 1986, Cam Tribolet was on his way home from a night of drinking when, at a Ft. Wayne, Indiana, stoplight, three men tried to carjack him. During the assault, Cam was shot three times in the stomach. One bullet ripped through his aorta, another lodged near his back, and the third tore through his bowels, spewing infection throughout his body. Cam's family was informed that he probably wouldn't survive the night. But he did. In the days and weeks that followed, both of Cam's legs would be amputated above the knee. He would endure thirty–six operations and require resuscitation thirteen times. His fiancée would break up with him in the hospital. He would become addicted to drugs to deal with the pain. And he would face the loss of his career. He would even contemplate suicide. But God was not done with Cam Tribolet.
Ever since Kynan Bridges was a young boy, he understood that he was not alone in this world. He sensed the presence of God, but when he rededicated his life to Jesus in 1996, he encountered the dark side of the spiritual realm firsthand. For several months, he was tormented by nightmares, demonic attacks, and the spirit of fear. Little did he know that such demonic attacks on the mind and body were not unique to him. One night, feeling suffocated in his sleep, Kynan called on the only name he knew to call upon, the name of Jesus. Instantly, he was set free from the tyrannical grip of the devil. In that moment, he realized that he had authority over the enemy because of the name of Jesus.
Many of us have heard these statements–or similar ones. Are they mere clichés? Or do they point to a truth that is so profound it should be the main focus of our life? The mighty God of the universe is also your heavenly Father who loves you deeply. He understands you inside and out, and He desires for you to know Him personally, too. Author James W. Goll joyfully guides you past the clichés and into the spiritual reality of knowing God's heart through an intentional, ongoing relationship with Him.
The church of Jesus Christ is in crisis. Congregations are splitting and decreasing in size. Marriages are crumbling. Biblical intelligence is on the decline. Where is the power? Where are the miracles? What has happened to todays church? Author Tom Brown argues that we have forgotten that our duty to share the mission of Jesus Christ is to defeat the adversary who rules this world. Today, too many churches refuse to mention the devil or teach about the reality of Satan. The result is a weak and anemic church that struggles to convert doubters, rescue those in crisis, or witness the deliverance of oppressed souls in the clutches of the devil.

Prayers are meant to be answered, but many Christians do not know how to pray effectively. Fortunately, the Bible teaches us how to pray in order to bring glory to God and to address our physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, and relational needs. In Prayers That Get Results, Pastor Tom Brown delves into different types of prayer and reveals why believers cannot take a one–size–fits–all approach when they talk with God. He explains that Scripture provides us with specific prayers for specific needs, each with a unique language and attitude, including... Prayers of submission, petition, agreement, release, in the Spirit, intercession, binding and loosing. When you know how to talk to God effectively, you will see your prayer time not as a tiresome chore but as a sacred and joyous activity that you don't want to stop.
When God's people take their praise to a higher level, they begin to unlock their "kingdom authority." Praise is a spiritual weapon, and it's a necessary part of ruling and reigning with Christ. More than merely the preliminary part of a church service, praise is an essential ingredient to experiencing the presence of God and moving into the spiritual realm of prophecy. Joshua Fowler's calling will stir within you a greater hunger and passion for the Lord as you arise as one of God's praiseworthy children.
Until the age of fifty, Seung-Whan (Steven) Kim, a Korean-American businessman dedicated his life to financial prosperity at the expense of both family and faith. He had earned and lost millions several times over until, in China, his business in shambles, Kim returned to Christian fellowship, rediscovered the value of family, and received a calling to help North Korean refugees escape from human trafficking, torture, and execution. In 2003, Kim was arrested and convicted of harboring refugees and leading them along an underground railroad, and he spent the next four years in Chinese labor camps.

To experience the mysteries and revelation that Fife has experienced is to know the peace, joy, and rest that can be found only in intimate communion with the Father. Moses encountered the light and fire of the burning bush. On their way to the Promised Land, the Israelites followed a pillar of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night. The priests of God ministered in the temple with the flame of a lamp stand as their only source of light. God wants all believers to walk in that same light of supernatural revelation. He wants you to transcend human limitations and access the divine realm. Open your spirit to receive fresh illumination, for you are about to have an intimate encounter with The Light Giver.
Many things limit us from experiencing the fullness of God and all the blessings He has for us. We set boundaries for ourselves–or we let others set them for us–and become imprisoned by the attitudes of our minds and by negative circumstances, such as depression, past failures, feelings of unworthiness, "religious" thinking, debt, discontent, sickness, and the attacks of Satan. In Unleashing Heaven's Blessings, author Happy Caldwell explains what traps us in these limitations and what will set us free to fulfill our God–given purposes. Jesus has given us the ability to operate in victory and to be overcomers in the midst of an often chaotic world. Look beyond your limits and discover the limitless abundance of God.
Jim Maxim's gripping true story is proof that miracles do happen–and that victories are won through God's power no matter what odds are against you. And the odds were stacked high against Jim... Addicted to alcohol and habitual user of drugs, Oppressed by demons, Battling feelings of worthlessness, Teetering on the edge of death after a violent car accident. But God had wonderful plans for his life. While Jim was unconscious in the hospital after his car accident, Jesus appeared to him and offered him love, forgiveness, and the power to overcome any obstacle. Nobody–absolutely nobody–is beyond God's reach. You, too, can receive His love, power, hope, and purpose for living, no matter what dark times you are going through. Discover the power of God's all–conquering love in your life.
When you experience the glory of God, your life is transformed, and you are empowered in remarkable ways to fulfill His purposes for you, increasing the influence of His kingdom on earth. For more than twenty years—and in over fifty countries around the world—Apostle Guillermo Maldonado has seen God's supernatural power and glory manifested through his ministry. He has been used by God to enable the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, the dead to be raised, and the oppressed to be delivered. Through the insights he presents in The Glory of God, you can.
The supernatural power and authority of God are available for today's believers—just as they were during ancient biblical times—for healings, miracles, and deliverances.

You, too, can learn how to perform miracles!
Holiness is a priceless gift from God that most people never unwrap. What they miss! Why does just hearing the word holiness make many of us uncomfortable? We think holiness means restrictive rules and regulations. We believe it is an outdated concept that doesn't fit in today's world. We fear we could never live up to what holiness requires. The more we think of holiness in terms of what we must not do, the more control these activities seem to have over us. The beautiful secret revealed to us through Christ is that true holiness means peace, freedom, and strength as we live according to the Spirit
The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the "beginning of wisdom" (Psalm Ill :10) and the "beginning of knowledge" (Proverbs 1:7). Proverbs 14:2 7 even calls it a "fountain of life' But do people really understand what is meant by 'the fear of the LORD'? Drastically different from the frightful trembling we feel in response to a threatening person or dangerous situation, the "fear of the LORD" is a deep sense of reverence and awe of th e One who created us, loves us, and saved us. Experience peace and confidence by cultivating the fear of the Lord, the Gateway to Gods Blessing.
God's eyes are constantly searching for someone to heal, someone to bless, someone to prosper, and someone to favor.

By understanding and tapping into these timeless truths, Christians can rediscover the destiny that God intends for His people. We were meant to be shining examples of God's power, blessing, and favor!
Today's pastor or church leader faces a host of dangers, both physical and spiritual, that can destroy ministries, families, and even take the very life of the leader. Thankfully, God has not left us defenseless in the spiritual battle against the forces of evil. In this much-needed book, Bryan Cutshall does a masterful job of clearly defining the often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated role of the armorbearer. Using biblical examples and references, he paints an accurate portrait of the armorbearer's role, position, and relationship with his or her leader. When church leaders understand and utilize this important spiritual ministry, the kingdom of God will be able to advance, stronger, and mightier than ever before.
How can you face death squarely while experiencing an absolute absence of fear? You can if you have hope. You can if you have traveled from Guatemala to Kiev to Beijing and seen God restoring hope in the midst of hopeless situations. Recounting his journey from captivity in Aceh, Indonesia, to freedom, Mark Geppert reveals the reality of knowing a God who never fails us or forsakes us. Mark's incredible testimony is one of belief, action, purpose, and a step-by-step growth of faith.

Pastors Larry and Tiz Huch have had to overcome many of the challenges facing couples and parents today, from generational curses to personality conflicts, to create the wonderful marriage and family they've enjoyed for more than three decades.

Hurt, disappointed, messed up, and dried out - that's how many of us feel in life as we carry on the best we can. 30-Day Detox for Your Soul is more than a devotional - it is a spiritual "deep clean" or "health spa" that gently but effectively uncovers the issues of the heart (both old and new) that negatively affect the way we live and act, allowing God to heal us and set us free, spiritually and emotionally. Writing from her own experiences with heart-piercing honesty, author Jo Naughton provides an easy-to-follow daily journey that will ignite a new fire in our relationship with God, leading to renewed purpose and the fulfillment of our true destiny in life.
After decades of blessings and prosperity, America now faces the harsh realities of high unemployment, crushing debt, bankruptcies, and a collapsing housing market. A country that once overflowed with optimism is now plagued by fear. What has gone wrong? Author Henry Fernandez believes that we are experiencing the consequences of our abandonment of the godly standards that, in the past, have been crucial for our success, both as a nation and as individuals. Far too many people, including Christians, have succumbed to the temptation of blending into a society afflicted by poverty, sexual immorality, abortion, and unchecked greed.
Emotional fitness is much like physical fitness: the more you exercise certain behaviors consistently, the more fit you can become. When you are emotionally fit, you possess more emotional energy and stamina to help you through daily trials. You can “bounce back” more easily from emotional upsets, and, most important, you can maintain healthier and more beneficial relationships. Experienced counselor Betty Hamblen uses the insight she has gained from research and the struggles of her own clients to identify ten behaviors that can lead to improved emotional health.
Current statistics reveal that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. Jennifer Kostyal became one of those statistics. Jennifer's story reads like a Hollywood movie. The blonde, blue–eyed beauty pageant winner was raised in a religious cult, molested for ten years by a family member and later became involved in abusive relationships as an adult. Finally, on the verge of mental collapse, she made the decision to end her own life and would have except for a miraculous intervention. It was the turning point to Jennifer's eventual healing in every aspect of her life.
With the rise of social media, more of us are managing our relationships online instead of in person. Technology that was meant to make communication easier and faster for busy people may have met its goal, but often at the expense of intimacy and meaningful conversation. In many cases, friendship has become a status decided by the click of a mouse. Kindling a relationship—or cutting one off—is as simple as "friending" someone or removing that person from your list. And someone with a thousand–plus online pals may be the loneliest person on the planet. If you can identify, you're not alone.
Have you ever wondered if God's healing is for people today? Do you desire to be made whole but don't know how to go about it? If you are wrestling with these questions, you are not alone.

This compilation includes the writings of... F. F. Bosworth, Kathryn Kuhlman, Guillermo Maldonado, Marilyn Hickey, Smith Wigglesworth and More!

But along with fervor comes fear at the undeniable evidence of God's hand on his life.

Many Christians have suffered unspeakable trauma and wonder why they aren't experiencing the freedom God has promised. The reason is that trauma goes deeper than the mind. It infiltrates the body at the cellular level, and only a deliverance that deals with the whole man—soul, spirit, and body—will treat the trauma and set you free—completely free. Speaking as one who has received miraculous healing herself and also ministered it to others, Christian author and healing expert Joan Hunter demonstrates how to find true freedom through such methods

With every gift you "receive" from God, there is the responsibility to "maintain" it, or else you risk losing the blessing of that gift. While many Christians understand this in the area of physical healing, it applies to so many other areas of our lives. Gifts may come in the form of respect, honor, favor, and opportunities, as well as compassion, love, forgiveness, recognition, and instruction. And what we do with the gifts we receive from God can affect the trajectory of our lives. Learning to maintain the miracles you receive will affect every area of your life. You will change the way you think, you will see with renewed vision, and you will live with the heartbeat of God.
