Before leaving Langley, however, he discovers a Hezbollah hit man has targeted him for assassination. Now, while trying to figure out what it means to be a follower of Christ, he must decide if the Iranian couple he meets in Oklahoma has ties to the man who’s trying to kill him, and if Nikki Saxon, a beautiful local detective, can be trusted with his secrets.

  • Will it help him escape his past?
  • Can it change his future?

Only $3.99 Today ~ Babylonian Harlot: a Daniel Goldman novel of the end times 2/9/2017 #amreading

Only $3.99 Today:
God’s end time saints will need to be warned. It has been fifteen months since the Rapture removed all Christians from the earth and something new, something big, is about to happen. Daniel Goldman senses this. And since he remains—as far as he knows—the only man on earth commissioned by God for these end times, the task falls to him.

Daniel’s intuition is confirmed when the Antichrist and the False Prophet begin to circulate among select Israeli leaders photos of an ancient ivory carving of a Jewish temple. Many believe the temple depicted by the carving represents an actual structure, the Jewish Second Temple as it appeared before its destruction in 70 AD. They also believe that with those circulated photos the Beasts are promising the Jews a Third Temple to be built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Although still new to his assignment, Daniel knows enough to recognize the problem with such a structure: a Third Temple in Jerusalem would ignite all-out war with Islam whose own holy structures already occupy that contested piece of real estate.

On a mild December day, pursuing his vaguely understood divine mission, Daniel arrives in Rome with the single imperative of returning to the Beasts’ Roman Lake League headquarters to investigate this temple carving. The first problem he faces: only two months ago they tried to kill him in this very place. He has since taken great pains to hide himself and the handful of people dependent upon him from these supernaturally empowered enemies. Nonetheless, with only a promise from his inner voice and a young prostitute he believes God sent to help him after he arrived in Rome, Daniel confidently attends a church service conducted by the False Prophet, Akiva Sharabani. The service will take place in the heart of the Beasts’ domain, the miniature Coliseum reproduced in the center of their headquarters building.

But when Daniel and his providentially-provided assistant enter the Coliseum to observe the service, they enter not only a physical structure but a satanically energized world over which the Beasts will exercise iron-fisted dominion. The False Prophet already revealed supernatural power when Daniel was here the first time, but Daniel soon discovers that power has now vastly expanded—and that the new Third Temple promised for Jerusalem is but the beginning of the Beasts’ plans to establish world-wide control. What the beasts have in mind is nothing less than returning planet earth to its roots, to the place where idolatry was born.
From Rome to Jerusalem, from an archaeological dig to the birth pangs of a new Tower of Babel, Daniel and his young helper pursue the mission—and are in turn pursued by God’s Enemies, visible and invisible.

Surprised by Faith: A Skeptic Discovers More to Life than What We Can See, Touch, and Measure

The world is changing so rapidly that many are shaken with uncertainties. This is compounded by an erosion of confidence in absolute truth and traditional values. The result is a floundering search for a reliable source of purpose and meaning in life. Fear, not anticipation, fills some hearts as people think about the future. Some contend that turning to faith is anti-intellectual. “God is about religion,” they say, “a crutch for the weak.” These are mere caricatures resulting from ignorance. This book confronts false stereotypes and examines the astonishing body of scientific and historical evidence supporting the truth that God exists and cares about people’s future. This is the Gospel with evidence. As a college student, amid academic success and athletic achievement, Don Bierle began searching for answers to the important questions of life. He found there is more to life than what can be seen, touched, and measured! Using the scrutiny and logic of his scientific training he tested the foundations for faith, and was surprised—and changed—by the answers he discovered. Hundreds of thousands of people have now discovered these answers through his book Surprised by Faith. For them, the discovery has been an “Ah-ha!” experience resulting in transformation and a life of peace and hope.

In Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship is Starving the Church, Dr. Doug Erlandson presents a balanced but devastating critique of the contemporary-style worship model and shows how this type of worship deprives Christians of the feast of true corporate worship. Drawing from personal experience and extensive research into the history of Christian worship, Dr. Erlandson analyzes the motivations for contemporary-style worship and assesses its strengths and weaknesses. He argues persuasively that corporate worship should be a dramatic presentation of the Gospel. Historically, Christian worship has included distinctive elements in making this presentation. These elements include the call to worship, recitation of the creeds, confession of sin, absolution, Christ-centered preaching and a benediction.

Is there a right way to pray? Does God only listen to those who are on bended knees with hands folded, heads bowed, and in reverently silent communication with Him? From many years of experiencing answered prayer, author and pastor D. Qwynn Gross offers insights to the most effective way to pray. Based on the prayer that Jesus taught His followers, the teaching in this book reveals personal and practical patterns needed to pray with insight, intention, and expectation as you present yourself before almighty God. This the way you should pray:Father in heaven, may Your name always be kept holy.May Your kingdom come….However, if you do not forgive people,then your Father will not forgive the wrong things which you have done (Matthew 6:9-14 PEB). Reciting the Lord s Prayer doesn t yield the meaning needed for application in real-life problems, nor does it offer real communion with God. Narration of the prayer only proves memory is strong understanding the prayer enables results.

Sweet River Fool is the story of a homeless man named Snody (pronounced “Snow-dee”) who begs and scavenges for a living in the small north-Georgia town of Sweet River. Despairing over his alcoholism and poverty, Snody tries to take his own life but botches the attempt. In the wake of this failure, he discovers a book about Saint Francis of Assisi and is captivated by the medieval saint’s life. What fascinates him most is the paradox that allowed Francis to experience sublime joy in the midst of complete poverty. Inspired by admiration for Francis and a desire to understand the mystery of his joy, Snody begins to model his own life on the saint’s. In the course of doing so, he befriends Clare, a teenage girl who, in spite of being an avowed atheist, is drawn to Snody’s simple faith and gentle humor. By the novel’s end, both Snody and Clare find their lives paralleling that of Francis in ways that they never imagined possible.
