Identity Wars

 Identity Wars is a journey of self-discovery. It is an invitation to learn of your value in a purely relational context.

Our lives are bombarded with a constant drone of messages telling us that success only comes from proving to ourselves and the world that we have what it takes, that we have the right stuff. It is a system that teaches us to only feel valuable and important when we achieve and perform to a certain standard. The results of this system are in and the evidence is not good. Millions are depressed and 100's of people a day ending their lives in despair.

I invite you to learn the true nature of the war we are in - an identity war of what defines our value and worth. The stakes are high because it is life and death. This book contains my journey and the principles I learnt along the way. Freedom is a relative thing but this book documents my road to freedom.

Acts of Our Gentle God

Acts of Our Gentle God presents compelling evidence from the Bible to exonerate God of the charges that he is uncaring, judgmental, controlling, unfair, bad-tempered, or violent. The book demonstrates that the entire Bible, correctly understood, is in harmony with the definitive statement God is love (1 John 4:8).

Cross Examined and Cross Encountered

Why was the Cross required 
and who required it? 

Why was the Cross necessary 
for our salvation? 
 

Steps to Christ

A step by step guide to enterting into a saving relationship with Christ. This is the book that personally brought me to know Christ and accept Him as my Saviour. I will forever love this book for the blessing it has been to me.

Comforter

Today there are approximately 125000 abortions performed every day or between 40 to 50 million every year. The human race is now killing nearly a quarter of its potential population in order to prevent children. The dramatic rise in porn through means of the internet and the focus on sexual fantasy provides still more evidence of men and women seeking an elusive comfort in sex. The book of Romans provides a clear sequence of descent into destruction when humanity turns from the true character of God and seeks pleasure, comfort, and fulfilment in sex outside of its original design.

Original Love

If we worship a God who loves because of inherent qualities then we will do the same. We become what we behold. Yet if we worship a Son who was given all things and rests in the assurance of His Father’s sweet benevolent Agape love, then we can be transformed into the image of this love and love as God loves His Son.

Our God is Agape and in Himis no Eros at all

Agape

In this volume is found the culmination of a sixteen year search for light on these questions. The journey began when I was reminiscing about the birth of my first son. I thought on the moment I first held him in my arms and the deep sense of love I felt for him. To have a taste of such divine emotions brought me into an encounter with God that impressed upon me the thought that the feelings I had for my son were an expression of God’s love for His Son and consequently His earth born children.

Divine Pattern of Life

Three Hundred years ago, Sir Isaac Newton discovered the universal laws of the physical universe and the principles that bound planets and stars together in His monumental work Principia. This booklet explores the divine pattern of human relaitonships and what is the secret of life that will bring prosperity and blessing.

Cosuming Fire

For those who believe in God, it is almost universally reasoned that the only way to end sin is to stop the wicked dead in their tracks by bringing down a fiery stream of fury from the heart of God to burn up the wicked and bring them to an end. It is often thought that the wicked are not simply going to destroy themselves, and that if God is a God of justice He will punish transgressors and reward them for their evil according to their deeds by directly putting them into flames and burning them alive Himself. Would a loving God do this to His children?

Understanding the Personality of God

What does the Bible tell us about who God is? This booklet takes you step by step through the Bible explaining the truth of God from the Bible.

Father of Love

In this age of uncertainty, people are starting to question God’s character. Does He condemn and judge others while commanding us not to judge but to love others unconditionally? Does He torture His enemies for eternity in a lake of fire while at the same time commanding us to love our enemies? Does He spitefully send plagues and pestilence upon people who choose not to love Him while demanding we pray for health and happiness to fall upon those who do not love us? Are we not to live a character like His? Or are we reading the Bible through a mirror which reflects back to us what’s in our thinking and practice? In Jn. 14:9 Jesus said, “If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.” When did Jesus ever condemn or judge anyone? When did Jesus torture anyone? When did Jesus kill anyone? Jesus counsels all of us to anoint our eyes with the spiritual eye-salve He is offering so that we might “see” more clearly (Rev. 3:18). Then, as we read the Bible through this new eyesight, the veil of fear and condemnation is taken away (2 Cor. 3:14-16). Thus, as the everlasting loving character of our heavenly Father is truly revealed, we begin to see that God is not against man, but that God and man share a common enemy who seeks to destroy our faith in a Father who loves us with all His heart, and with all His soul, and with all His strength.

As You Judge

Judgment day! Most cultures around the world hold to a principle that everyone is going to face judgment for the things they have done in this life. Jesus Christ provides a simple principle to endure this judgment process.

Judge  not, that you be not judged. Matthew 7:1

What is it like to live in a realm where you cease to judge others? How is this possible? We are constantly judging people’s looks, height, weight, skills. We judge people for their skin colour, their religious affiliation, their social status, their income and their intellect.

Where can we turn to find the perfect example of someone who does not judge so that we can follow this example?

You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. John 8:15

Wisdom of God

He that has the Son has life. Why is this so? For in the Son of God resides the pure heart of an obedient Son to His Father. He always does those things that please the Father. He also has the Father’s blessing and deep affection. The heart of the Son rests perfectly in His Father’s love.

Life Matters

Deep in the heart of each human being is the need to feel secure in their sense of worth. Everything we do in life is influenced by our beliefs in where our value comes from. In this book, you’ll find the Biblical view of where our worth comes from, with a focus on the role that family relationships play when it comes to establishing our sense of value. You’ll be taken on journey along the history of humanity to learn the contrast between God’s family kingdom, where each member is secure in their sense of worth, and Satan’s family kingdom, where each individual strives to secure their own sense of worth. The insights from this book are bound to change your life, as they provide clarity on your own family relationships, and a clearer understanding of God and His Son.

My Beloved

Faith Journey

Understanding the subject of the two covenants is an important part of understanding the gospel and reading the Scriptures in a correct framework. This booklet introduces this subject in a simple manner to provide the reader with essential elements to understand this subject.

There is much confusion on the subject of the covenants because of misunderstandings which took place within Christianity many centuries ago.

Fountain of Blessing

Entering into God’s REST through the Channels of His Appointed Times

The Words that the Father spoke to His Son at His baptism echo the blessing He poured upon Him on the first Sabbath of Creation. Daily the Father delighted in His Son, and the Son rejoiced before Him. On the Sabbath the Father breathed upon His Son and the Son was refreshed in His Father’s love. This intimate connection between Father and Son was placed permanently in the Sabbath, and each Sabbath the Father breathes out His refreshing rest upon His Son and all those who accept the Son.

Canaan Conquest

How do we reconcile the wholesale slaughter of nations by Israel with the sword against the words of Christ? Matthew 26:52 …for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Not only men, women and children also:Deuteronomy 2:34  And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain: Were the Israelites truly in tune with the character of God?
