2-novels-by-rex-stoutI love to give the gift of a good novel. These kinds of gifts are ones that will give and give again. A gift of a good book can be life-changing and that is what I love about it. Finding a good book to give as a gift is always exciting to me. Since I am becoming a Christian, I have a lot of Christian friends and we love to discover Christian-themed books together.

When I want to give the gift of wisdom that will last a lifetime, I love to find a good book that I can give to a friend or a family member. Even though I have a lot of Christian friends, I also have a lot of friends who are non-Christian as well and they are people who are very important to me. I like to tell them about the Bible and about Christianity whenever I get a chance.

With novels by Rex Stout, I always have something good to read and something that I can get a friend or family member excited about as well. I have been reading these novels for a long time and they are always thrilling and educational reads. Giving the gift of one of these novels is always a good choice and one that will have lifelong benefits.

Seeing Biblical Principles Prevail With Christian Suspense Fiction

1-christian-crossAs a new Christian, I love to find books on Christian topics that help to strengthen my faith and to help me to know how to deal with life situations in the best way possible. There are a lot of great ways to learn about Christianity and about the Christian values and principles. Finding some great Christian books is something that is always very exciting for me.

Whether I am reading Christian fiction or nonfiction, I always learn a lot through some good Christian books. They have really helped me to make the decision to become a follower of Christ and know I can have the freedom to live my life without sin wrapping its chains around me constantly. It is so freeing to be a Christian and know that I have eternal life.

I have recently really gotten into Christian suspense fiction and it has allowed me to discover how Christian principles can be applied in all sorts of situations. I love reading this kind of fiction because I can’t wait to turn the page and see what happens next. Once I start reading, I can’t stop. These Christian books have helped me also to strengthen my faith as I see how Biblical principles would prevail in any story.

Make 2017 A Year of United Prayer Warriors

jfk        Men who exercise tentacles of their powers over multiple nations, elected leaders, and dictators, who think they control sufficient collective human, spiritual and financial forces to stand against, even destroy, those attempting to subvert their plans for world direction—tend to eliminate persons, groups or nations who dare to oppose them. The feeder of their greed is money, or in their cases, unspeakable wealth, control of trillions, not just billions, of currencies world-wide. And sitting atop of this cadre of evil is Satan and all his satanic hosts of fallen angels and demons.

In 2017, members of The Body of Christ in the United States must remain close—even closer than it has ever been before.  Historically when a nation’s prayer teams are not unified, all hell breaks loose.  Even now acute bitterness from the last election can weaken some prayer warriors who resent those election results.  Christians, especially praying Christians, must recognize that earnest prayer, asking God Almighty to protect leaders on all political levels is
crucial intercessory prayer behavior.

I was in the Air Force when John Kennedy was elected President of the United States.  Protestant chaplains on my particular base were furious at the thought of having a Catholic president, as they concluded that the Pope would soon rule this country.  Likewise, politicians opposing Kennedy, as well as outspoken arms dealers, were furious because Kennedy was against expanding the Vietnam War. In fact, he wanted to withdraw American troops from that poor nation. In such a hateful atmosphere, and with so little agreement between politically-minded prayer warriors, the President was assassinated.

Those years were already riddled with cultural divisions between those confessing to be God’s people.  The Rev. Martin Luther King had also been murdered some months before Kennedy.  Again, the nation’s prayer forces were at odds with some churches being either for or against racial integration in schools and colleges. Again, the spiritual forces of God’s people were divided. Before Martin was killed, Medgar Evers, Mississippi Civil Rights leader, was also gunned down.  Not long after the President’s death, his brother Senator Robert Kennedy, who was running to overthrow Kennedy’s successor, was also killed by an assassin’s bullet. Of course, the forces behind those killings were human earthly rulers and darkness linked with the forces of spiritual darkness.

During those years, Americans lived with a great sense of fear and foreboding.  Nonetheless, good people began to cross racial, political and denominational lines and came together to pray for the nation’s healing. During weekday prayer meetings, as well as Sunday morning services, people fell on their knees weeping, crying out for the nation’s vicious culture of divisive hatred to end, for national leaders to be protected, and for Satan’s vile seemingly endless disruption to be chased away from our shores.  It took some years of earnest prayer, but eventually God’s people won out.  While the nation walked away from Vietnam, bloodied and battered, eventually the it’s hurts of hatred and division were, for the most part, healed.

My point is that when those who are “in Christ” stop praying, or when they pray against one another because of cultural, or political, differences, horrible consequences befall the country.  Today, I sense that same dread and foreboding threatening to creep over the land.  Will it be forces from beyond our borders bringing such ubiquitous destruction, or will it be the same satanic energies of disruptive violent anger, Americans hating Americans, rising up to take political and cultural vengeance.

Whatever the source, the only answer remains to be prayer–Churches praying for national violence to stop, even

before it gets an even stronger foothold; Parents praying their children away from gangs and violence; Pastors, chaplains and Christians praying together for our politicians to be protected as they work together, crossing party and cultural lines, for the nation’s benefit.

As wholesale Christian Bibles insists: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5: 16).”  If earnest Christians do not begin such praying, it may well be that this time the nation will not survive these same old, yet ‘new-found’, battles against evil!  And the world’s satanic war mongers, pillars of the devil’s stolen wealth and murderous destruction, will keep their onslaught against our nation and civilization until at last they bring in their true ‘worship’ leaders: Satan and the anti-Christ!  It must be repeated: Christians please pray . . . pray in this New Year of 2017 as you have never prayed before.
