Its not about people, or places, or situations that hold us down. Everything is handled or overcome at the door of your thought. What we see through the physical senses is restrictive and flawed and does not reveal the true nature of everything. It is only a hint of the perfection, reality and grandeur of spiritually real phenomena which fill all space. There is a spiritual view of reality which gives us the correct sense of our identity, health, wealth, joy and happiness which is not vulnerable to material conditions. There is only one Cause and Effect in our universe and this Cause is only good and there is no effect from any other cause. The universe is in oneness, one consciousness and its in a progressive state of uninterrupted continuity of good. Success, prosperity and happiness follow the footsteps of unselved motives.Mind is not necessarily dependent upon educational processes. It possesses of itself beauty and poetry, and the power of expressing them.Spirit/God is heard when the senses are silent. Spirit perception corrects the flawed misconceptions of the mortal mind we have been holding onto which are world-imposed.There remains in everyone, the necessity for a more tangible concept, a more definite definition of Deity to meet practical needs of humanity. In cases of worry, confusion, mental impairment, personal or business problems that defy solution - there is no remedy so near, none so effective as to calmly insist that the all-knowing Mind which is God is never weary, never disturbed, never inadequate and that this Mind expresses itself and guides you in every right effort and undertaking. You will find your thought clarifying and expanding. You will also find that while yourself could do nothing, you can with the genuine intelligence operating through you, cope successfully with the difficulties at hand. included 51 pages of note pad.

God has made Himself so very plain to me in my life and in the last fifty-years with my husband. We have seen His hand working for us, with us, and to us. My desire is to first reach our family and to show that God is alive and well in a very mighty way in the life of all of His children. Most people are too superficial in their relationship with the Lord and do not see or understand His presence. My main goal is to make God real in everyday life and realize that we can live our life in the presence of the Almighty God by entering into the holiest of holies with Him each day. Our daily walk with the Lord should be lived in the conscious presence of God as we carry out our mundane, everyday duties of life. My prayer is that this book will enlighten, encourage, enable, and energize you to find a deeper relationship with our heavenly Father for His glory! I desire for the "candle of my life," to penetrate into the dark recesses of this world and light the way for the discouraged, despondent, and dejected people all over this earth.
Job 33:14-19 says “For God may speak in one way or another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night ... He opens the ears of men ... Man is chastened by pain.” Furthermore, Jesus in Revelation 3:20 says “I ...

Yes, God Really Is 'Up There ' provides answers for many of life's questions. It has been written by a man whose earliest childhood memory is of shivering in the winter cold while trying to sleep on a bale of hay in a drafty barn somewhere in war-torn (WWII) Europe. His Mother was doing her best to comfort him, all the while listening to the bombers roaring over-head, and wondering what had happened to her husband, the boy's Father. It later came to light that he had been captured by Russian soldiers, and was bound for the labor camps of Siberia. How the Father escaped, found his wife and child, and once reunited, they came to the United States, is a story for another day. Suffice it to say that, bringing only their clothes and old pots and pans, upon arrival they began to live the American Dream. (For more, read About The Author at the end of the book.) The American Dream abounds with opportunities and obstacles for the native-born and immigrant alike; the author has been no exception - he encountered both. Amidst the victories and defeats, he came to realize that God Almighty really was and is up there, ever vigilant and always looking out for him. That very God can do the same for you. If you're not sure that God really is up there, or you are going through tough times, you need to read this book.

Books by evangelical scholars on messianism in the Old Testament are either outdated, too brief, or lack balance,Ó observes the author. Messianic Revelation in the Old Testament represents the most thorough, conservative analysis of the century. Van Groningen traces the messianic expectation as it is progressively revealed in the Hebrew Scriptures. He first introduces the messianic concept, defining its terms and uncovering its source. He finds these messianic presentations rooted in, and shaped by, divine revelation. The major part of this volume explores messianism's philological, historical, and theological aspects. The result of this study,Ó writes the author, reveals that the messianic concept refers to a royal-priestly-prophetic person...and his work.Ó Passages that deal with these messianic motifs have been selected for close scrutiny and evaluation.Ó The author believes that a correct understanding of messianism in the Old Testament requires a balanced hermeneutical approach - from exegeting the relevant texts and studying their historical context to interpreting prophecy and organizing its theological truths. In the words of the author, To omit one [element] is to do injustice to the Old Testament.Ó Van Groningen has included an extensive bibliography of both books and articles for those wishing to pursue additional study. A Scripture index helps one to locate the author's exegetical insights on various passages. An index of persons concludes the work.

In closing this book I would like to thank a few people. First and foremost I would like to thank my family. Without them I would not be where I am today. I want to thank Celia Reeder for inspiring me to try and start memorizing bible verses in the Sunday school class she started. I want to thank Dr. Jay Strack for all his inspiring sermons he had done at NorthStar Community Church. I also want to thank Dr. Phillip Dunn for inspiring me to pick up my daily devotional book and start reading them every day again as I had put it up on my bookshelf for a while and hadn't read one until he mentioned it in a sermon. Lastly, I want to thank everyone at NorthStar Community Church for everything they have done and are doing for my family and I. God Bless all of you!

Have any of these questions bothered you? 1. How can a loving, merciful God send millions of people to Hell forever without hope? 2. How can God be good, when there is so much suffering and sorrow in this world? 3. Am I going to go to Hell when I die? If you have been looking for answers to these and other similar questions, then this book is for you. The premise of the book is that if God is God, then He must be good and He must be glorious. Can the One who created the universe really be defeated by the enemy He created? Or is all of this suffering and sorrow in this life meant to amplify the incredible plan that God has mysteriously woven throughout the world's most controversial and powerful book, the Bible? In Hell Is Not the Issue, you will see that it is God who has put limits on Himself to get us to believe that He is vulnerable to Satan and mankind's choices. But nothing could be further from the truth! God's amazing plan is designed to not only create a win for everyone--even Satan, but in doing so God is going to write the most incredible story of the ages. And you can discover this marvelous story about a Savior who allows people to go to Hell, not to be punished, but to be pardoned. Within these pages you will see that there are passages of Scripture that almost nobody talks about that give clues to this amazing redemption story. A story like you've never heard it told before, anywhere. God is good, and you will benefit from His goodness. See for yourself what the Bible actually says about Hell and the plan that God has for it. If you're like most people, you've never really studied this topic on your own before. Do you really want to leave the matter of Heaven and Hell unsettled in your mind until you're face-to-face with death? If you only ever read one book about Hell, Hell Is Not the Issue should be the book that you read.
