Since August of 2008, Sword of the Spirit Ministries has been distributing “Take Up Thy Sword,” a monthly e-newsletter with hope and inspiration from the Holy Bible. I have received several testimonies and confirmations from readers across the globe, thanking the Lord for an on-time Word found in these messages. So following the advice of two very special women of God, I have put together a dynamic compilation of the most influential newsletters—one for each month of the year! When I heard the word ‘pep’ in my spirit, I began to think about the purpose and goals of pep rallies, pep squads, and pep talks. Pep can be defined as having high spirits or being invigorated; and with the current condition of our world, we all need to be revitalized and refreshed on a daily basis. I have learned that PRAYER and ENCOURAGEMENT can give you the POWER to press your way through any situation. Start walking by faith and put some P.E.P. in your STEP!
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world" (James 1:27). Did you know that there is only a total of six instances of "religion" and "religious" in the King James translation of the Holy Bible? When you realize that sitting in a pew every Sunday is not enough, then the Lord will reveal to you what He really desires from us: relationship. "That's Not God! How to Transition from Religion to Relationship" is my personal testimony of how I started out just attending church to actually becoming the Church. If you need to take your level of faith in Jesus deeper and higher, then join me along this journey to true sonship.
The phrase "critical thinking" is not found in the Holy Bible. However, one who is guided by biblical principles is not exempt from applying, or at least considering, the practical worldview critical thinking process that leads to making good decisions. It is understood that although Believers are in this world, "they are not of the world" (John 17:14) but can most certainly glean from diverse sources of wisdom. The Biblical Guide to Critical Thinking will explore how Believers can make good decisions from a biblical perspective while benefiting from business-based critical thinking methods.
The Lord encourages us to "fear not" in over 60 verses in the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Why, you ask? Perhaps it's because our faith in Him should always have a permanent, primary role in our lives to overshadow any fear that rears its ugly head. You may have heard the common phrase, 'faith over fear.' Being fearless simply means to fear less. Of course, there are some people, places and things that we should have a healthy fear of; but it's up to us to be courageous in any other circumstance. So whose report will you believe: the Word or the world? It's time to manifest the Holy Ghost power that resides inside of you! Learn how to bravely look the enemy straight in the eye and say, "Fear? NOT!"
