AMERICA’S HELL ENLARGING THROUGH “CHRISTIAN” HYPOCRISY

The past week’s news headlines in America are a laboratory analysis and forecast of the perfect storm that is lambasting our falling nation.

America mourns as basketball legend Kobe Bryant dies, and every news station, sports talk show outlet, and media center in America covers his death and celebrates his achievements in a sport. Meanwhile, a pastor in Nigeria is beheaded for refusal to deny Christ, and no one cares.

I wrote an article a couple of days after Kobe’s untimely death about the vanity of a celebrity gaining the whole world and possibly losing his own soul, and Christians defend him and his Catholic faith, and call me a classless individual who wrote a “creepy post mortem commentary”. The article’s purpose was to simply put us in remembrance of the brevity and vanity of life without Christ, the permanence of eternity, and was a simple call to salvation.

The truth is America and many professing Christians don’t want their American dream deflated. They don’t want to know that there is a God they’re accountable to. They are like the disbelieving brothers of Jesus of whom He said:

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it that its works are evil” (John 7:7).

AMERICA HATES THE REAL BIBLICAL JESUS

America hates the real Biblical Jesus. Many professing “Christians” do, too, including many of our celebrities. The stronghold in America is not the sinners who love the world, but the professing “Christians” who praise Him with their mouth but whose heart is far from Him — the ones who confess His Name but in works deny Him.

Folks, here is the big problem. Many of our celebrities and star athletes confess Jesus and have “God-talk” on their lips but they do not live for Him. As an example, the Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, whom I love by the way, is being lauded for his faith in God since his childhood, yet he is living with his girlfriend and parties with his teammates. There are numerous other examples of this type of double standard and hypocrisy in America’s entertainment industry and among our celebrities.

But here’s the worse thing: American preachers defend the faith of these individuals and praise them. They exalt them before our youth as an example of a bold Christian witness, but they’re living in sin. We not only have frauds in the entertainment industry, but the high crime is that we have them in our pulpits.

Mahomes says he participates in team Bible studies and chapel services, but who is leading them and conducting them? Who is mentoring young men like him and others, and giving them the whole counsel of God. Who speaks of sin any more? Who tells them their lives are wrong? What preacher in America lives up to this job description?

“Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching” (2 Tim. 4:2).

Observe the many comments from the sleazy Super Bowl halftime show. Some of those entertainers are professing Christians. Many viewers who defended the show are professing Christians. It’s alarming to me that a professing Christian could watch this halftime show and not sense the Lord’s displeasure and be grieved in their spirit. Listen, if you are in that category, you are asleep and in great need of a rude awakening. You need to repent of your false profession and your compromise against holiness.

Have you ever read the following verses?

“But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them” (Ephesians 5:3-7).

Much of “Christian” America doesn’t even know such verses are in the Bible. Such popular figures like mayor and presidential candidate Pete Puttigieg are professing “Christians” who are in a same sex marriage relationship. Honestly, it makes me want to vomit when I see half of our nation idolizing such effeminate men. Oh God, how far we have fallen from Biblical standards in America!

THE PERFECT STORM

The deception is rooted in this simple statement: We have divorced Christianity from the Bible. America is a homosexual nation because we celebrate this lifestyle and cater to them all. America’s new religion is sex in all forms, and in all fashions. We have been desensitized to sin and seduced by sex. We are a hell bound nation. The worst of it is that our children are bearing the brunt of our lust and being exploited by the thousands in the sex trafficking industry, which is so much worse than any of us know. This is all about shock value and bringing down our nation’s defenses, so that after awhile it won’t bother you.

I know many of you don’t want to hear it, but it was the Obama presidency that opened the portal of sexuality here in America to a greater measure, and accelerated this vile filth from the pits of hell. Political authority from those eight disastrous years allowed a hell-bent, full-blown deviant spirit to rule, while the church played church grow-thism and designed a consumer model to keep attendance convenient and carnal.

And worse yet, now that a true presidential leader is putting a strangle hold on some of the darkness and prevailing progressivism, and draining the national swamp of its evil, people are having hissy fits as they scream for their Sodom and Gomorrah to remain unrestricted and unrestrained. Even professing Christians are now unashamedly Trump-haters, bashing our president at every turn. Stars of champion professional sports teams, who profess Christianity, boycott their visit to the White House in protest of the most Biblical and church friendly president we’ve ever had. Shame on you. You are poor, wretched, blind, and naked.

This double standard and highly hypocritical Christianity is a recipe for disaster. It’s the perfect storm. A sleepy church and a sinful society. Unholy Christ professors and a hell bent nation. Cowards and frauds in our pulpits who won’t preach the full truth, while the world parties on into eternal damnation.

Lord, have mercy.

We must possess an unwavering stand for truth and righteousness to thrive in the new era. Read about it in my new book, The Tumultuous 2020s. I believe it will be a great blessing to you. Here’s what Dr. Jeff Thompson said about it:

Please let me take a minute to recommend what I believe to be one of the most powerful prophetic addresses that i have ever read. Bert Farias pulls no punches and lays out a non-compromised Biblical Worldview regarding the “hot-button” issues of our day. Bible-believing Christians cannot afford to be complacent.

Bert’s books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day.

PROPHECY ON PRAYER AND INTERCESSION

The following is a prophecy by the late Kenneth E. Hagin spoken in a prayer seminar in the late 1980s. How much more true is it today? The need to pray has become a cliche. Many talk it, but few live it. The need to actually learn to pray effectively and become a praying people has never been greater and more vital. 

The end of this age is coming upon this generation, the powers of darkness, the forces of evil are around pant??? as never before, and will be increased in intensity and velocity and many, even Christians will see and look upon those things and say there’s no use and throw up their hands in futility and say I guess it’s all over…I guess we’ll just have to hold on and pray that Jesus will come shortly for the devil is about to take over everything.

But thus saith the Lord: In this day I’m searching through the body of Christ to enlist soldiers in the army of prayer. And I’ll raise up a new band, I’ll raise a new army, that will know how to intercede abasing the powers of darkness. And the light will dispel the darkness, and the truth will set men free, and prayer and intercession will break the bands that bind men’s minds and spirits and bodies.

Yea, there are those that will learn to take their place, and hurriedly it must be…hurriedly it must be…quickly it must be, that they learn and that they enter in quickly and stand against the forces of darkness and evil that would come against your land, that will come against the Church, that would come against the home, that would disrupt and destroy all that is good that God has endorsed.

But the hand of the Lord is upon those who will listen and the urge of God is in the spirit of those who are attentive. And the Spirit of God will help you to pray.

Image result for image of prayer

Do not try to do it yourself, though there must be labor on your part, yet at the same time, rest in Him and let the Spirit flow through you like a river, like a mighty wave. Let it flow through you. Give vent unto those innermost groanings and let them escape your lips. Take time to get alone and to wait…sometimes not even say anything. But on the inside of you there is an agonizing flowing out of your spirit by the Holy Spirit from the great Spirit, the Father of spirits.

Thou shalt be sustained. Thou shalt be kept. Thy family and thy home shall be sure and stedfast, and thy children shall grow up strong and stalwart in the Lord. And thou shalt have no fear, and thou shalt intercede for thy neighbor here and for thy friend there. Thou shalt intercede for those even in the Church who’ve not come to the knowledge of the truth — making sincere intercession on their behalf.

And so the light will shine, the work of God shall go forth, and the work that is to be accomplished in these next few days and years that are just ahead of you shall surely come because you were faithful.

WHAT SOME MINISTERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND BEYOND

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s AND BEYOND, by BERT M. FARIAS is a warning from God to protect you in the coming days. Bert says what the Lord told him to say, and he does not care about the consequences. The 2020s will be the greatest test American believers have ever faced.

Never forget that God-given warnings are sent out of love — not out of anger, or hate. This book is a Godsend to help you not only face the 2020s but to thrive for God in them.

It is my sincere prayer that God will turn this much needed warning into a much heeded warning.

Evangelist Mario Murillo, Mario Murillo Ministries

 

The ministry of Bert Farias is marked by the burning heart of a prophet and the anointed passion of a revivalist. I believe he is a voice that God has raised up in this hour with an important message for the church. In Bert’s newest work — The Tumultuous 2020s and Beyond — the clarion call that characterizes his ministry comes through with a cutting edge that is sharp and clear. In this timely book, Bert Farias pulls no punches as he tackles relevant and controversial issues that will define the Church in our generation and determine what we pass on to the next. I highly recommend Bert Farias, his ministry, and this book.

Daniel Kolenda
President and CEO, Christ for the Nations

The Tumultuous 2020’s and Beyond is a clarion call to the body of Christ to return to its first love, but with a warning: It will challenge you to examine what you believe and why; it may even make you angry at times. Bert effectively lays out the sad state of politics, morals, agendas, and problems of our day, and then, while clearly laying out the consequences of continuing along the current path, he presents the solution. This book is prophetic, quoting several prophecies and inspired words on what is to come in the natural world, while at the same time showing the glory of the body of Christ rising up to fulfill her destiny. A must-read!

John Fenn
Founder, Church Without Walls International

This book by Bert Farias is like fine wine. God has truly reserved some of the best and most authentic oracles for these last days. With urgency and a father’s heart, Bert ushers the reader into a tremendous vision of the future and a clear call to repentance and sobriety. If you are ready for a serious burden from heaven and possess a desire to impact the world around you, start reading now!

FRESH BREAD

I’d like to share a prophetic dream I had recently.

Many people were in a banqueting hall waiting for the guest of honor to arrive. He seemed to have delayed his coming. Then suddenly through a frosty designed long walled window I saw the shadow of a man with long flowing hair walking briskly.

It was Jesus.

Although I couldn’t make out his features due to the frosty window, I could see that He walking with a fast pace in long strides as if he was on an urgent mission. As he walked into the banqueting hall he approached me and spoke as a military officer in command:

“Farias! Did you get the bread?”

Oh no! The task of keeping fresh bread on hand had slipped my mind. In a frantic dash I rushed to the supply room in the back and found some old bread from the Salvation Army food bank. Due to its staleness I started warming it up in the microwave to make it soft and fresh, all to no avail. I had neglected to purchase fresh bread before Jesus came.

The oil in the lamps of the virgins (Matt. 25:1-13) represents both the Holy Spirit (oil) and the Word (lamp). The dynamic of the Holy Spirit illuminating the word of God to us is what make the word of God fresh. Many in the body of Christ have their lamps but little to no oil. They have the word but they’re not filled with the Spirit. They may have some oil in their lamps but no added vessel with any extra oil. This is what will determine the coming separation in the Church now and at the rapture.

My wife and I have traveled extensively to churches in the last 8 years. We are seeing an unholy trend. There are more and more Pentecostal/Charismatic Christians who have a Bible but no oil. Some are not baptized in the Holy Spirit though they’ve been in a P/C church for several years. They do not have a prayer language or they don’t utilize it.

Here’s what the Lord said after the dream:

“I’m bringing back voices that are speaking what I’m saying.  My people must learn to hear and discern properly for there are deceiving spirits moving even among those previously thought to be strong.  It is only the revelation and the feeding and nourishment that comes from partaking of the fresh bread of My Word that keeps them in Christ and in the Light.

“There are many warnings I’ve given My people.  Remember that in these days I said many would be offended and deceived and the love of many would wax cold.  Many in My church are being fed stale food. The children of Israel needed fresh manna every day to look for Me, and eat of Me, and be filled with Me. Learn to come to Me every day to hear what I have to say. The Son of man was always ready to give people fresh bread because He stayed in the Father’s presence. You must do the same.”  

Many celebrity minsters and well known names no longer serve fresh bread. They’re too busy or idle in prayer, and so they do not have spiritual nourishment to feed the people and are no longer following God’s perfect plan for their lives. My wife observed a minister with a household name speaking at a conference and noticed a great difference in their words. They were stale and lifeless even though there was much truth in them.

It’s not about a name or a celebrity but it’s about a vessel through whom the word of the Lord flows through. Truth is not enough. Knowledge is not enough. The kingdom of God is not in words but in power. Such is the state of many pastors and ministers in this hour. Such is the state of many believers. Remember that a big part of the warnings in the last days is that there will be many false apostles, false prophets, and false teachers. Deception is the greatest danger. Warnings could be the greatest ministry. Selah.

THE RETURN OF THE LORD SHIELDED FROM THOSE WHO HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING

An inspired utterance from the vessel of Carolyn Farias:

“And so as it was in the beginning when My Son came upon the earth. And the wisdom that I had to bring Him in was in a mystery and was shielded from the enemy’s eyes, and there was no understanding.

And so shall it be in this day and in this hour when My people come together and are filled with My Spirit, that I will begin to move and set in order My Son’s return.

For there is an hour that I am calling for My sons to be revealed. Even as the earth groans, so is it the hour of the revealing of My sons and My people as they are filled with My Spirit.

There are things that are coming to happen. There are movements of My Spirit that need to be demonstrated in this hour and in this time.

And if you will say to Me, “yes, I will; yes, I will do the will of My Father. Then I will use you and I will begin to fill you with a filling of My Spirit that was greater than when it started.”

Image result for image of the Lord's return

When Jesus was presented in the temple as an infant there were two old saints who were there by revelation. First, it had been revealed to Simeon that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ (Luke 2: 25-35). Part of the revelation he also received was that Jesus would be a light to bring revelation to the Gentiles — something unheard of in those days as the Gentiles were outside of the covenant God made with Israel and considered dogs by the Jews.

The other old saint was Anna, a prophetess, who also came into the temple at exactly the time Joseph and Mary came in with the infant Jesus (Luke 2:36-38). She gave thanks to the Lord and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem (v. 38).

Notice that she spoke to all those who were looking for redemption in Jerusalem. As it was with the Lord’s first coming so shall it be with His second coming. Not everyone will be looking for Him. The mystery of His second coming will be shielded from many who are not expecting Him. There will even be scoffers who will doubt His coming (2 Pt. 3:3).

Here are at least three things we need to be mindful of that Peter points out concerning the coming of the Lord.

1. Do not forget that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day. Remembering this one thing will keep you from being among the scoffers (2 Pt. 3:8). There is a large segment in the body of Christ who now scoff the rapture of the Church and even downplay the word “rapture”.

2. Since the earth and its’ elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, we should carry ourselves in holy conduct and godliness (v. 11), and be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless (v. 14). So much for the hyper grace doctrine and being covered by carte blanche. Without holiness no man shall see the Lord (Heb. 12:14). There is no peace to the unholy.

3. Thirdly, we should always be looking for and hastening the coming of the Lord (v. 12), looking for the new heavens and a new earth (v. 13), and looking forward to these things (v. 14). This is an inward look that sees the things which are eternal and not the temporal. Several of the Bible’s references of the Lord’s coming speak of a looking posture that we are to remain in.

the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of…(Matt. 24:50)

Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” (Titus 2:13).

My admonition to you is don’t be found among those who fall from their own steadfastness and are led away by the error of the wicked, but continue to grow in the grace ad the knowledge of the Lord (v. 17-18).

It is imperative that you be continually filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:18-19) and stay ready for the Lord’s coming. It is only then that you will even have spiritual understanding of the time and season of it.

IS AMERICA ON THE BRINK OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION?

I just completed a manuscript called, The Tumultuous 2020s And Beyond: A New Era For America, The Church, And The Nations. I may add one more chapter to it because many voices are now warning us of judgment on America. It is no longer a question of if, but when, and how extensive it will be.

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room.

Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, and do not give Your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’” (Joel 2:15-17)

Unless the Church humbles herself there will be judgment in America beginning in 2020 and 2021. These years are pivotal in the governmental arena of our nation. This is not absolute but it is a severe warning. Civil unrest and civil war in parts of our nation will result in such chaos that it will open us to foreign invasion. Prophets from America and other nations are being visited and warned.

Great and sincere humility and repentance is required for judgment to pass over us or even for greater delay in it. Most Christians just want to pray judgment away and continue on with their self-centered lives, but that posture will not move the hand of God. That type of prayer and lack of humility is worthless. Attempts at avoiding judgment without true repentance evidenced by a lifestyle change is fruitless and an absolute waste of time. God sees through situational repentance which is only motivated by a desire to avoid tragedy and hardship. True repentance is a complete submission and a turning over of our lives to the Lord that is motivated by a heart-felt desire for total obedience. God will not be mocked by anything else.

We are nearer to a severe disruption in this nation that is now at the door. I believe it can be further delayed but not sure it can be stopped without massive repentance in the Church. This will affect our nation politically, governmentally, and economically. Some of us have been in a state of humility and repentance personally, but the sin is Church-wide and body-wide. It must begin at the leadership level (read my book on Cleansing The Temple where this is outlined).

IT STARTS WITH CHURCH LEADERSHIP

Church leaders are not letting Christ build His Church and have His way. They are not leading people to Christ but to their own plan and agenda. God is tired of manmade systems dominated by human wisdom. To many Church leaders the ministry is a job and a means of making a living, and attendance, buildings, and cash are the bottom line with many of them. If that’s you, you need to get out of the ministry fast because you are a liability to Christ’s Church and not an asset.

Leadership is about being a friend of the Bridegroom and getting people to Jesus and not drawing them after yourself and your vision and agenda. If you connect people to the Lord they won’t need you as much. Leaders must decrease so Christ can increase. Some leaders’ egos are too big to live like that. Leaders are ordained by God to help people connect vertically to the Lord and walk with Him.

Here are two more sin issues:

  1. Sexual sin: Not only that, but many leaders and Christians are bound by sexual sin, pornography, and perversion. Their marriages and families are unstable and out of order, and yet they are trying to lead God’s people. What a sham. It is such a mess and worse than many have even thought. I praise the Lord for godly leadership, but there are so many ministers that can’t keep their pants on and are living in sexual sin.
  2. Schisms and division: We must also put an end to the schisms and division that is such a black mark against the body of Christ. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Satan, the accuser of the brethren, is busy accusing members of the body and setting them against each other. If we continue to wrestle against flesh and blood, and not recognize our true enemy and his devices, we will never be in a position to exercise our authority over him and to have a great effect on both the Church and the nation.

When 9/11 happened we had fire escape religion. Many people began to attend church and consider God again in their lives, but soon the tragedy was forgotten and people went on with their sinful lives and living however they wanted to. They didn’t find the power of God in the church but got only religion. This is the problem we have today. Many people are de-churched and un-churched because they are not finding a place to be touched by God and transformed. They are receiving information but little impartation and transformation.

I’m afraid that unless we have a real crisis in our nation too many Christians and leaders will continue to yawn and slumber and sleep. Personally, I’m living as soberly as I ever have. I’m as prayerful and watchful as I’ve ever been. I’m endeavoring to walk in love and obedience more consistently than ever in my Christian life. Something is coming down the pike that is going to rattle this nation and cause great panic and fear among many. But we need not fear if we are right with God and walking with Him in true consecration and holiness.

Nuclear war is now even a very real threat and possibility. We are in the final hour of the last days and the nations are being aligned with Bible prophecy and last days events.

It’s time to wake up, humble ourselves, repent, and live for the Lord wholeheartedly. If you’re walking close to the Lord you will have wisdom and guidance for the tumultuous times ahead, peace and authority in your spirit to rule and reign, and courage to face hardship.

THE TUMULTUOUS 2020s: FURTHER PERSECUTION FOR CHRISTIANS AND JEWS

Think about how much our country has changed since the turn of the century (millennium). Think about how much it has changed just since Obama was in office. I got news for you. The rapid changes we have seen in the last few years are not coming to a halt anytime soon. In a word, this rapidity of change will continue to increase and mark these last days before Jesus returns.

At the peak of these changes is the intensity of the persecution of Christians. There is a reason for the great disparity between the recent media coverage on the massacre of Muslims in places like New Zealand and the killing of Christians in places like Nigeria. The writing is on the wall. Christians are hated and that hatred will only increase.

There’s also a reason why the larger percentage of the nations despise the tiny powerful nation of Israel. Jews are also hated and that hatred will continue to increase.

One of the ways persecution will increase in the West is in the form of spying through artificial intelligence. The same way the Chinese government tracks Christians there and keeps a profile on each of them will followed in America and the West. All the pieces are in place for this to escalate in the next few years. Christians will be the most targeted, not only by the government, but by private companies as well.

Organizations like Amazon, Google and Facebook are already tracking your life from the sites you visit to the purchases you make, and their algorithms help companies advertise and market their products and services. They know where you live, and they know your occupation. No harm has been done yet, but that will change as Christians in the West draw the line in the sand between righteousness and wickedness. What has been used for mostly good will now be used for evil as the government will team up with private companies to spy deeper into people’s lives. The truly righteous will be prey in that day.

Watch out for more laws to be established through our Congress that will show partiality and steal Christian liberties. The courts will disregard these liberties and determine more and more what is offensive. Homosexuality, including transgenderism, and Islam will continue to be at the front and center of controversy as leftists seek to clamp down on Christians, churches and true conservatives. When anything goes awry, especially in our economy, true Christians and conservatives will be blamed.

Christian and Jewish persecution will increase even in the West.

LIES

It is obvious that honest journalism is at an all-time low. The media lies. Those who pledge allegiance to Islam lie. Sinners, especially those with their own agenda, will lie and lie. Lying or bearing false witness has been done to God’s people throughout the centuries and was something the religious leaders did to both Jesus (Mark 14:56-59) and Stephen (Acts 6:13). The same shall be done in ever-increasing effectiveness against true Christians in these last days even in the West. The media will take words out of context and pervert what was truly said. Global martyrdom will continue to rise, and we may see it here in the West sooner rather than later, because if you can’t change someone’s faith, you kill them.

Technology now has the ability to transform any video or audio of a person’s words and make it seem as though he is saying words he didn’t even say. The general populace will believe it because they are seeing it and hearing it on video. Christians will be blamed for things they never said or did.

NO NEED TO FEAR

True believers in Jesus who are consecrated to Him need not fear when they witness these things coming to pass in greater measure. Those who seek first God’s kingdom will prosper in this hour and have peace beyond human understanding, while those in darkness shall continue to stumble and be full of fear and great perplexity. Light will dawn on the path of the righteous as darkness and gross darkness fill the land.

These are the days to get your house and priorities in order. These are days of cleansing and consecration. New vows of separation from the things of this world shall be made by many who are presently in darkness. The household of faith will become more and more precious to those who have truly forsaken the love of this world. In that day, our relationship with those of kindred spirits and precious-like faith will be our greatest wealth. There will be great miracles and divine intervention in the lives of believers who place their trust in the Lord. The coming crisis will only minimally affect them.

However, those who put their trust in the systems of this world will have more heartache and trouble, and for some, this is what it will take for true repentance to work in their hearts and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

To be warned is to be forearmed. May wisdom teach us to build our house on the rock of Jesus Christ. It is only those who prepare for the coming storm and days of adversity and persecution who shall not be shaken.

Be a support to us and follow our blog and help spread these messages. Also, consider subscribing to our ministry YouTube channel for weekly 15 minute Face to Face video impartations on the Spirit-filled life from my wife and I.  

Our books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. 

Also, this ministry is sustained by the freewill offerings of those who believe in the mandate and message of revival and restoration that this ministry carries.
