Introduction: Would you agree that it's time for pastors and the Church to do what our founding fathers did and fight for religious freedom and liberty? I think we all agree that America is in a crisis moment. The Covid “pandemic” (as it is being called) is being used by some to undermine our liberties. If that's not enough, half the nation believes the election was stolen. Big tech, mainstream news, government, and education have teamed up to push a one-sided narrative and are working hard to keep other voices from being heard. Christian voices are being silenced by being removed from Facebook, YouTube, and other media outlets. So how can I respond? With FEAR? Wring my hands in defeat? Declare wickedness must advance before the coming of the Lord? NO, I don’t think so.
While 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice has always been our most popular teaching, Prayers That Heal the Heart has been a close second. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the printing of the original book, in May 2021 we are releasing a revised and updated version of this much-loved teaching. You can benefit by purchasing any amount of the remaining quantities of our present product at a deeply discounted price. We are offering them at a 75% discount until our current supply of the original version is sold out.
I have waited for this book to be written for many years. One statement I love in this book, which also expresses the main theme of the book, is that "to fulfill the Lord’s commission to disciple nations, people have to see wonders, miracles, deliverance, healings and even experience the resurrection of the dead through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
This is the form of ministry and evangelism Jesus practiced. Jesus ministered a compassionate, loving, healing touch to all He encountered. The Church today must do the same. This book will help you minister and evangelize in the same manner as Jesus.
Dr. Raynold Milfort has received his doctorate from Christian Leadership University. I was proud to write the above endorsement for his book, Anointed Discipleship. THIS is what will fulfill the Great Commission.
When I began pastoring in the late 1970’s, we created small groups which met weekly for sharing, Bible study, prayer for personal needs, and fellowship. Everyone completed the assigned study during the week, and came to the meetings prepared to share what God had revealed to them during their meditation upon Scripture. We worked our way “Through the Bible” with a 2-year program. Years later, people have commented that this was the place they received their grounding in Scripture.
From Mark Virkler: The journaling below from George has principles of intimacy in it which I believe can be used to build and restore intimacy in a marriage as well as with the Lord.
Romance is at the heart of the universe. It is the key to our existence. As Christians, we are engaged to Jesus, ruling with Him now, and soon to become His bride (Rev. 21:9; 3:21). So let's learn the principles of romance!
Just as our earthly romance with our spouse is composed of acts of endearment, so is our romance with the Lord Jesus Christ. We covered the ingredients of a good marriage in this blog, now let's apply them to our romance with the King of Kings. These concepts are from the Four Gifts of Love® Online Institute and their website is highly recommended.
Imagine the passion of romantic love being kept alive all through your lifetime. Is it possible? Absolutely! The pain of a divorce or living with a stale marriage is impetus enough for each of us to choose to invest deeply into keeping romance alive in our marriages. If first love is lost, the Bible is clear that we can go back and do the things we first did and restore our first love (Rev. 2:4,5). Now that is exciting! The principles below can be applied to restoring our first love with God and our marriage partner.
How are your communication skills? Have you taken a course on how to be an excellent communicator? Have you journaled, asking the Lord specific questions about how you can improve your communication style?
According to the Carnegie Institute, 85% of financial success is communication skills. My guess is this 85% success rate extends to every area of life, not just financial success. We need excellent communication skills with our spouse, our family members, at church, at the workplace, and in social gatherings. What are the skills that God would have you develop to become a better communicator? The two-way journaling questions below will allow God the opportunity to instruct you concerning enhanced communication skills.

Sound doctrine. Correct theology. Sounds easy. Seems like if I would just apply my mind, I could establish sound doctrine and keep myself from heresy and error. And that is exactly what I did for many years, until God stopped me dead in my tracks, and got me to look up every verse in the Bible on doctrine and theology (15 in the NASB and 37 in the NKJV). Wow! Was I in for a surprise! You will be, too, as you go through these verses with me in this book!
God made man creative, and, in addition, He has given man the ability to draw upon the eternal creativity of God. Locked within you lies a divine reservoir of creative energy that can transform your life.
God spoke to Marc Huddleston in his two-way journaling, "The quietness of a man's mind in My Presence is the birth place of the release of My limitless creativity."
This book is designed to be used in a 13-week new members' class of a church which is pursuing intimacy with the Holy Spirit. As people come to your church, they come with many different theological backgrounds and expectations as to what church ought to be like. It is crucial that you align these people's hearts and minds as they join the church, or they will end up pulling in many different directions and causing division.

"Were not our hearts burning within us…while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?" (Lk. 24:32).
IF ONLY I HAD A LITTLE MORE FAITH...
Have you ever thought that before? Most of us have thought it, or even heard it from others, at some point in our lives. But what exactly is faith anyway? And how do we get more of it? And if we did get more of it, could we actually move mountains into the sea?
Listening to God through Scripture! Were not our hearts burning within us while He was...explaining the Scriptures to us (Lk. 24:32)? This book will guide you in letting God reveal truth to you as you meditate on the stories and teaching of those who have gone before you. Your heart will be set afire by God!
Does the Bible contain principles which should be followed if you are managing a business, a church or a home? Do the most successful businesses, churches and homes follow these principles? The answer to both questions is, "Yes!" Do you know what these key principles are for successful management? If not, this book is for you. The book is designed with quick, easy evaluation worksheets provided for each of the 20 principles.
This book is the story of Mark’s personal journey toward revelation knowledge. With his trademark transparency and humor, you’ll identify with his challenges along the way and rejoice in his breakthroughs as he endeavors to continually wade deeper into the river of God.
The central theme of this book is that average Christian believers can learn to exercise the eyes of their hearts and receive Spirit-led visions to worship in heaven, to receive the Lord's healing of their hearts, His authority, and His strategies to bring heaven down to earth (Matt. 6:10). Heavenly encounters initiated and led by Jesus with angels and those who have gone before us may sometimes be a part of these visionary experiences, as they were in Scripture.
