Description : This spiritually-empowered book reveals the importance and power of fasting and prayer backed with faith in God. It is based on the authors spiritual experiences and observations within Christ-centered environment, and written under the influence of the Holy Ghost and with the wisdom, knowledge and understanding received from the Almighty God. Jesus said to his disciples: Howbeit, this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting (Matt 17:21). There is an increasing need for believers to have a closer relationship with God, given the ever increasing level of abominations and immoralities in this world. This book is meant to spiritually encourage believers to continue to intercede for the sick and the weak, the lost and the hopeless, and the unbelieving souls. Throughout the Scriptures, and indeed the history of humanity, true servants of God have fasted and prayed as they faced circumstances that were above and beyond human comprehension and capability, and as they were over-whelmed with trials and tribulations of this secular world. It is imperative that we find time for a quiet moment within our hearts to commune with God, and to have a dialogue with Him in our individual war rooms. This book will immensely help and encourage you in positioning yourself for a place in the Kingdom of God.

Description : A Christianity Today 1999 Book of the Year! Every reader of the Bible has encountered the powerful, comforting and sometimes puzzling imagery of Scripture. These concrete pictures with their hidden force have struck sharp and lasting impressions on our minds. Their imprint has etched itself on the language and grammar of Christian faith and Western culture. Why then do traditional Bible dictionaries and reference works offer so little help to explorers of the Bible's galaxy of verbal pictures? They excel in describing the climate, borders and location of Galilee or Sinai. But they are often blind to the artistic expressions and deaf to the musical meanings that echo from within the world of the biblical text. The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is the first contemporary reference work dedicated to exploring the images, symbols, motifs, metaphors and literary patterns found in the Bible. More than that, it examines the Bible's universal archetypes or master images--including the plot motifs and character types that recur throughout life, literature and the Bible. This unique dictionary explores the dazzling variety in which the Word of God comes dressed in clothes of everyday life. It traces the trail of images from Eden to the New Jerusalem. It captures the plotted patterns of biblical narrative. It surveys the imaged texture of each book of the Bible. In short, The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is an inviting, enlightening and indispensable companion to the reading, study, contemplation and enjoyment of the Bible.

Description : Jesus called. You responded. NOW WHAT? The Welcome Holy Spirit (WHS) Bible Study Devotional: Forty Days with Every Fruit is an opportunity to welcome the Holy Spirit into your life every day and to enrich your relationship with this amazing and wonderful Comforter that Jesus sent to us. The Holy Spirit makes our lives happy and full, and more importantly, establishes us as children of God: "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God" (Romans 8:16). The WHS Bible Study Devotional is both Bible study and devotional. Unlike other devotionals that use saccharine platitudes and personal tragedy testimony targeting reader's emotions, the WHS Bible Study Devotional is one hundred percent Bible based and offers serious exegesis full of purposeful insights that improve our relationship with, devotion to, and understanding of the most misunderstood and neglected member of the Godhead: God, the Holy Spirit. It uses the Word of God to remind us to welcome the Holy Spirit into our lives every day to produce the powerful Fruit of the Spirit in us and through us. Whether Jesus called and you responded yesterday or fifty years ago, the WHS Bible Study Devotional will strengthen your ability to be a productive member of the Kingdom of God by cultivating your submission to the Holy Spirit as He teaches you from its pages. Sunday school classes and Bible study groups will find the WHS Bible Study Devotional to be very "fruitful." Each day's reading includes a passage of scripture, an insight about the meaning and implications of that scripture, and a "Welcome Holy Spirit Prayer" inspired by that scripture. When necessary the context of the scripture or passage is explained, and in some cases respected Bible study resources are consulted to clarify confusing passages or to illuminate richer understanding. The WHS Bible Study Devotional is, in that sense, a year-long Bible study. The subtitle of the WHS Bible Study Devotional is "Forty Days with Every Fruit." Throughout the Bible, the number forty is associated with a period of testing and spiritual devotion that results in miraculous and wonderful redemption, restoration, or blessing. During the time of the flood, for example, it rained for forty days and forty nights. All the earth was purged of humanity's wickedness. The ultimate result was redemption, a new covenant between God and all living creatures that God would never again destroy all life from the earth. Another example when the number forty represents a period of spiritual devotion that results in miraculous redemption, restoration, and blessing is when Moses fasted on the mountain top for forty days and forty nights. At the end of that time, God appeared to him and gave the Ten Commandments that has allowed so many to live well with one another and to be blessed. Again, after forty days and nights of testing, trial, and spiritual devotion, something miraculous and wonderful happened.Jesus provides us with yet one more example. He retreated into the wilderness where He fasted for forty days and forty nights, after which He was severely tempted by the devil. Jesus resisted that temptation and overcame the devil. Then He began his ministry preaching the gospel. Forty days and forty nights of spiritual devotion resulted in the good news of the kingdom of God being preached on earth-a blessing that remains the greatest gift of all time for all people!Working through The WHS Bible Study Devotional, spending forty days with every fruit, will require commitment and devotion (hence the name "devotional"). On the other side of those forty-day periods, expect a beautiful and miraculous transformation as the Holy Spirit abundantly produces love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, and temperance in your life more powerfully than ever before. Thank you for choosing The WHS Bible Study Devotional!
