This book situates Nee's view within the rich heritage of the Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox spiritual traditions, and thus renders Nee's thought more intelligible to Christians of both evangelical and more liberal persuasions. In this book Dongsheng John Wu examines Watchman Nee's thought on the spiritual life, focusing on the relationship between spiritual formation and spiritual knowledge. Different ways of acquiring spiritual understanding are explored, including the respective roles of divine illumination, intellectual studies, and life circumstances. Understanding Watchman Nee begins by synthesizing strategic aspects of Nee's teachings as well as formative events and sources in the development of Nee's own spirituality and theology. It then utilizes the critical work of contemporary theologian Mark McIntosh to bring Nee's voice into dialogue with some important figures in the history of Christian spirituality. Such interactions reveal that Nee's crucial theological convictions exhibit strong parallels with related themes found in the church's spiritual or mystical treasures.

How does a person move from a place deficient of light? How can an individual shift from a place of complete and utter chaos, obscurity, apathy, and adversity? How does a person learn to live in a state of divine prophetic destiny? The pathway to transformation is through in-depth conversations with the One-True God of Creation - Elohim'. In order to move to a place of prophetic providence, your conversation must be divinely inspired. Hebrews 11:3 states: "The worlds were framed by the Word of God." Framing begins with an idea, expands as a result of the imagination, and gives life through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit through divine utterance for a specific purpose. Declaring the Word of God releases the creative power of God for authentic transformation. Author, K. E. Allen, designed Conversations of a Watchman to: Draw you into a deeper conversation with the Father. Strengthen and renew your prayer life. Mend your brokenness, and enlighten your pathway. Arrange your life according to the divine order of God. This resource will help you exercise your kingly and priestly authority and impose kingdom mandates to release God's original intent in your life, family, community, city, region, and nation. It will encourage you to frame your prophetic destiny.

John Knox ranks among the great leaders of the Reformed tradition. In particular, he made significant contributions to this movement as it unfolded in Scotland. In doing so, Knox wore many hats--prophet, pastor, preacher, reformer, statesman, revolutionary, and more. God's Watchman: John Knox's Faith and Vocation attempts to connect these aspects of Knox's life. Being a man of action, these roles come to the forefront. Still, they rest on a particular faith shaped by his interpretation of Scripture, his view of God, and the events of sixteenth-century Europe. Section one of this study establishes these beliefs. Part two spells out his vocation--namely, functioning as a prophet, pastor, and preacher. All of this--his faith and vocation--culminated in his revolutionary political ideas, which are the subject of section three.

Most people avoid teaching from Ezekiel. Not only is it a book full of strange and (sometimes) disturbing imagery, but it also presents a vivid depiction of a God that won’t fit neatly into the categories we typically have in mind for him. It’s because of these reasons that Ezekiel is an important book to study. But don’t be afraid. Creative Bible Lessons in Ezekiel makes it a little easier to bring this bizarre and often confusing book to your students. Following the history of the bestselling Creative Bible Lessons series, this book introduces some new elements into your teaching. Because Ezekiel is so unfamiliar to many people, there is extensive background for leaders, including research from several commentaries and other books. There’s enough information there for you to understand the passage enough to be able to teach it confidently. In addition to the background, you’ll find a combination of illustrations, activities, movie clips, and song suggestions to help bring the passage to life. Each section ends with a journaling exercise for your students to make the passage personal. Since many adults steer clear of this imaginative book of the Bible, this resource will not only help you teach your students—you’ll learn something yourself! Help your students uncover this book, and lead them closer to the God of Ezekiel—the God who surprises us frequently and loves us completely.

On a frigid March night, journalist Tea Krulos shivered in a Milwaukee park, waiting for a masked crimefighter. Finally the Watchman arrived, not in a Batmobile or swinging from a web shooter, but driving a tan, four-door Pontiac. He was in costume, of course—a trenchcoat, motorcycle gloves, army boots, a domino mask, and a red hooded sweatshirt emblazoned with a “W” logo. The two had spoken before on the phone, but never face-to-mask. By the end of the interview, Krulos wasn’t sure if the Watchman was delightfully eccentric or completely crazy. But he was going to find out. Heroes in the Night traces Krulos’s journey into the strange subculture of Real Life Superheroes, random citizens who have adopted comic-book style personas and hit the streets to fight injustice—helping the homeless, gathering donations for food banks, or patroling their neighborhoods looking for crime to fight. By day, these modern Clark Kents work as dishwashers, pencil pushers, and executives in Fortune 500 companies. But by night, only the Shadow knows. Well, the Shadow and Tea Krulos. Through historic research, extensive interviews, and many long hours walking on patrol in Brooklyn and Seattle, San Diego and Minneapolis, Krulos discovered what being a RLSH is all about. Heroes in the Night profiles dozens of RLSHs and shares not only their shining, triumphant moments, but some of their ill-advised, terrifying disasters as well. Tea Krulos is a freelance journalist and creator of the blog “Heroes in the Night.” He lives in Arcadia, Florida.

I wanted to create a work that would make comprehensive easy to read and hard hitting for Christian Leaders that could bring us back to our first love. My second goal was to compile a work that would help Christian leaders become effective leaders by forming a philosophy for life and for ministry congruent to the will of God for their lives. I hope to accomplish these goals within the contents of this book. The book is insightful in many ways such as the importance of the Church as a critical part of secular society and mental health as a pathology that needs to be mitigated even among the constituents of the Church. Unfortunately erroneous practices, beliefs, behaviors and teachings had to be addressed because I believe many people will come to their senses about given subjects if they receive proper explanations. A logical and scriptural perspective is given in order to help some get on track with regards to their beliefs, philosophy and actions. Hot topics discussed are Ephesians 4:11 endowments of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. A special chapter is dedicated to the role of women in the Church which unfortunately is a topic that is still a concern for many Christians around the world. There are concepts that are presented that all work towards bringing an individual to full order and to full congruence with the will of God for Leaders. An awareness to the importance of feeding sheep is a central topic of this 269 page hand book for all Christian leaders that emphasizes the God given responsibility for Pastors and leaders that are non-negotiable. Every Christian leader must read this book before assuming ministry, during ministry and after ministry to review their performance awaiting the day when Jesus will hand out rewards for service especially crowns designated specifically for leaders who were faithful. There is so much more such as how to feed sheep and what diet is essential such as when feeding sheep we must feed a good balance of both the word and the anointing to achieve full spiritual health. We discuss the importance of the local Church and what research says about the congregation we speak to each time services are held. You may be surprised at the needs that are present each time you speak and the responsibility you have to be a vessel through whom God can do an actual intervention into the life of an attendee to prevent misfortune. You wont be disappointed. Every seminary, bible college, and Church must make this book a part of their curriculum, required reading and library.

Superstition is a way of life for many people in the mountain communities of northwestern North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. When superstition is blended with Christianity, a hybrid faith emerges that leaves the worshipper without a steady footing for the problems of life. Hybrid Christianity is not only a part of mountain communities; it is also a way of life for many Christians in areas where superstition may not be as noticeable. This book seeks to help you work through your faith in order to burn the things in life that prevent you from walking victoriously with Jesus Christ. Through the personal testimony of Lonnie Denney, you will be able to relate to the struggles and victory that every Christian faces in the modern world. For anyone who has ever questioned their own faith, and especially for those who seek to grow closer and more intimate with the Lord Jesus Christ.

"WATCHMAN? HOW FAR GONE IS THE NIGHT?" warns that signs signal Revelation's endtimes have already begun. World war is impending that will place nations under Revelation's International Government (The New World Order), implementing God's disciplinary action because people are practicing apostasy, immorality & false worship. The government is expected to bring unjust laws, make war against Christians & dissidents & educate children with international & immoral values without parental permission. The situation is critical because the churches hold to many prophetic views as to how the endtimes will come, what we will experience & what we need to do. This book compares the various prophetic views & presents what is believed to be the biblical view with the hope that the churches will adopt it & warn & prepare their people. WATCHMAN describes what we will experience, Christ's & Satan's strategies & a plan for how to train churches & families to be self-sustaining in Christ - living by faith - in preparation for the greatest spiritual warfare & onslaught of Satan in all of history.

Author: Dr. David Jeremiah
For many believers, the mystery of the Holy Spirit remains just that. God in You, now in popular trade paperback format, is the layperson's guide to this often-misunderstood member of the Trinity. Pastor David Jeremiah explores the Holy Spirit in concrete terms, leaving abstract concepts behind. Not an idea, not an influence, not some vague, mystical force, Jeremiah explains, the Holy Spirit is actually the almighty God of the universe come to live inside the believer's skin. And a clear understanding and appreciation of His attributes can ignite the passion of every Christian's walk with Christ. In this compelling, gently instructive book Jeremiah affirms, "Without [the Spirit], we're about as useful to God's kingdom as an unplugged toaster."
