Living Waters Church is embroiled in spiritual warfare and is in danger of being completely overrun by a large demonic force. Logan Hall, a commander in the Lord’s army, makes a final stand at what the demon, Colonel Black Death, is calling the Battle of Poison Waters. Somehow, the enemy infiltrated the lives of the unsuspecting Christians. Spreading fear and confusion was only part of their devious mission. In this desperate hour Captain Hall suffers serious wounds inflicted by once loyal soldiers, compromised and influenced by demon spies.

.
Captain Hall is taken to an unknown location, in the care of a physician. While the spiritual battle continues to rage on the home front, Logan discovers demons have conspired to implicate him as the cause of the destruction of his home church. He realizes if he doesn’t soon return to the battle, all will be lost. However, in order for his wounds to mend, he must first confide in the physician, telling all his broken heart will bear.

.
Logan’s story occurs in Christian churches every day. Anyone who has been hurt or offended by other Christians in the family of God, will be blessed seeing how the Lord brings Logan through his fiery trial.
Sadly, when the Church fails to fulfill its fundamental purpose, to love one another; its witness to a lost and dying world sounds like an annoying, clanging, cymbal. Troubled souls long to see and hear the love of Christ harmonized in the lives of faithful Christians.

Title: Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible!
By: Gary and LeeAnne Dyck
ISBN#9781498495400
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
 Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! By Gary and LeeAnne Dyck give their accounts of God doing the miraculous in their lives and in the lives of others. From a returned earring to multiplied food, from angels transporting lost items back to the authors, to real-life accounts of Heaven, this book reveals realms, miracles and that God is in the business of doing miracles. First beginning with a little background on their upbringing, both husband and wife share how God has intervened, revealing that He cares about the little things, the big things and everything in between. The point of writing such a book is so that others would understand that they can believe God for miracles. Even the impossible!
.
This truly is an amazing book, to hear of such unbelievable miraculous things happening in the everyday life of two believers (and that of other believers and churches), not only stirs great faith, but shows how good our Heavenly Father is. These true accounts all come from the eye-witness accounts of the authors. As the book continues to reveal, there are many, even in the Church, that just don’t believe in the miracles after they happen. After reading this book, one just might consider that those “kinds” of miracles only happen to select people. As readers will learn, God gives to all. They include at then end of chapters a quick prayer, simple and to the point. They insist there is no “magic” formula. It is God who does the miracles!
.
A highly recommended read for those that want to believe God for more, for the impossible and I guarantee you will read this through in one night!  
.
You may get your copy of Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! at Amazon or as aKindle download. Be sure to visit Gary and LeeAnne Dyck at Your Impossible Is Possible for further information and some great ministry.

The Bridge from OneDayBow: 
The Complete Trilogy
By: Kathy M. Warden
ISBN#978-1512739626
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
The Bridge from OneDayBow is a fictional and modern-day parable of the Gospel. Written with the use of rhyme and poetry, the author offers an interesting “twist” that brings an understanding of the Kingdom of God versus what the world advocates.
.
Captivating, yet eye-opening, four characters are portrayed – Truth and Life versus Lies and Death that parallel Scripture, and present insight to life’s purpose. The author’s message is simple, and conveys the truth of eternity coupled with God’s absolute authority as the King of kings and Lord of lords; and His Word, that presents an opportunity to believe in the Good News.  Her hopes are to bring others to the Truth of the Word of God and to salvation in Jesus Christ alone. This is a fantastic book for young and old alike, and although fictional, depicts the battle for your soul and life’s meaningless destiny without knowing your Maker, God Himself.
.
Intertwined with scripture, Tim, the main character, knows there has just got to be more meaning to life other than collecting bobbles. He embarks on a journey of discovery to find Truth and discovers that there is much deception in his world, depending on who one listens to. He finds that there is a way that brings life, joy and much peace into one’s heart and soul (his nooma) and that this peace is not found in worldly bobbles and collecting, but journeying beyond the HereandNow. A mysterious Bridge, leads the way to finding answers. Tim discovers God’s armor as mentioned in Ephesians 6 and that he has all he needs to win the victory!
.
This book is a wonderful allegory of the salvation of the cross that is possible through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the bridge to salvation and in hopes of leading others to discover their own salvation, the author has penned an incredible adventure that reveals the truth of God’s Word.  ~ A triumphant literal accomplishment giving new life to the genre of Pilgrim’s Progress. 
.
Highly recommended for young teens to increase faith, to encourage them to put on the Armor of God and to reveal the Truth of God’s Words.
.
You can get your copy of The Bridge from OneDayBow at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores.

Fame and Fortune Tellers: 
A Young Man’s Meteoritic Rise to Stardom
Todd Netland
ISBN#978-0692316771
A CBM Book Review
9.8 out of 10.0 stars
.
Fame and Fortune Tellers: A Young Man’s Meteoritic Rise to Stardom by Todd Netland is a fantastic fictional read about a talented young keyboardist, Randy Miller, beginning in the year 1973. After receiving an incredibly accurate telling and prophecy from a pudgy old man, Randy’s life was about to change. Married to Lila, their ride home from Harvey’s Hotel Resort was just the beginning of this mysterious prophecy coming to pass. A thought-provoking read, Randy discovers that being a rock star does not bring the fulfillment he was hoping for. This novel reads like a movie in the making and reminds one that life is a journey. Themed with Jesus Christ’s salvation, this novel dares to show readers that this Earth is passing, and that Eternity is waiting for them and that it is up to them to choose salvation in Jesus Christ.
.
Fast-paced, real life scenarios draws readers into the lifespan of many different characters that experience trauma, loss, heartache, along with life’s triumphs, all leading into a grand tapestry of life that readers will appreciate. Randy’s journey draws you in, and we are able to follow his life from his 30’s during the 70’s, into his late 60’s. Quickly Randy begins living out this prophecy and ascends to success on the Pop culture scene. An aspiring musician, Randy plays the keyboard and guitar. Along the way, his family and friends, lives intertwine, revealing that we all have choices and we all have free will. With suspense, Randy’s journey unfolds, coupled with endearing romance, humor, danger and intrigue that collide with several sub-plots. 
.
Within this, the author reveals the reality of what is on the other side of death (and behind this so-called “prophecy”), Randy comes to an understanding of light vs. darkness, discovering that Satan is real and so is Jesus. The book conveys through the series of Randy and other characters's life that we all have freedom to make our own life choices, but sheds light on the importance on making the right choices in regards to salvation. Offering what we do in the present has an impact on our eternity, this book unveils that worldliness does not compare to the glory that is offered from setting one’s hopes on God, Heaven and Eternity.

Christian fiction author Steve O’Dell reveals the spiritual realm, highlighting the battle of evil behind the scenes, that have relentlessly attacked God’s creation from the beginning - mankind. Ultimately, ending in Jesus’ great forgiveness for all who would believe. A great fictional read.
.
Filled with Biblical undertones, a riveting saga, The Nephilim Project: A Demon’s Chronicle by Steve O’Dell is a fast-paced adventure extrapolating from historical and Biblical movements of history such as David’s epic battle against Goliath, and Jesus’ crucifixion. Some are telling as to “what it might have been like” in those days, but still, fiction at its best, intertwining the dark plots of evil upon an innocent world.
.
Lucifer's forces wreak havoc in an unfettered, and strategic assault. Utoneious speaks about his exploits and recoils at the telling of his part along Lucifer’s side, as he tells of the exploration of the great regions of space. The author portrays the realities of the spiritual realm with intensity and realism, combining truth, logic, the supernatural.
.
The goal is to keep man separated from God. Revealing the supernatural realm from the demonic perspective, the battle is depicted through this statement by a demon, “We need to bring about a complete and comprehensive seduction, persuading men there is no judgment. Satan demands their loyalty either knowing or unsuspecting. Give them the earth, wooden idols, or golden gods to worship; it matters not. These things bring the same end. If we cannot escape Hell neither will man. Obey me, and mankind will also suffer the wrath of God!”  Compelling, to say the least!
.
Events such as the Great Flood being God’s judgment due to man’s increasing wickedness, the story unfolds with Noah and his family and their departure from the Ark to a destroyed and water deluged Earth. As the only remnant saved by a righteous God, Noah is to begin again, and to reclaim and replenish the Earth once more. Depicting the struggles that Noah and his family must have faced after the Flood makes for an interesting read. As the story progresses, a deeper evil is revealed, a power that is controlled by Satan as mankind fights for survival – The secret of the Nephilim is revealed.
.
Captivating, this novel involves a deeper story, one that is of spiritual warfare. The author opens worlds that are not visible, but still exist, to the reader, giving them challenging scenarios to contemplate as evil declares war upon humanity. Stating that, “Faith and love are the driving forces of redemption, and the two concepts reflect the nature of God.” in this aspect, this a deeply inspiring read, one filled with intrigue and suspense as the plot deepens with many twists and turns that also involve subplots of the Knights of the Templar and a holy relic.

Samuel A. Oghenejabor unveils theLegalization of Same Sex Marriage in America – What the Word of God Says as a courageous and profound message of righteousness that is directed to the leaders and to the people of America.
.
Controversial in nature, the subject matter of same sex marriage can get volatile, but not just from people expressing their opinions. . . in his riveting new book, the author exposes the wickedness and the dire consequences for coming against the institution of marriage as a Holy Union and the wrath of God that comes upon peoples, kings, leaders and nations for the rebellion to the Laws and Decrees of The Lord Almighty.
.
We all know that in history’s past, there have been kings, leaders and civilizations that were toppled when the pride and rebellion reached God’s ears and became intolerable, inciting the judgment of a Holy God.  Biblical examples would be The Tower of Babel, The Great Flood and Sodom and Gomorrah.  But there are others and the author warns of such punishment if same sex marriage is made legal.
.
As history repeats itself, the author offers the solution ~ turn to God in repentance and do not allow the legalization of same sex marriage. Thought-provoking and challenging, this book not only provides his opinions, but God’s Word as the only standard. As he reveals, going against God’s ways, bring severe consequences.
.
Holding a Master of Science Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Grand Canyon University, Samuel A. Oghenejabor has a passion for the poor, under-privileged, and the mentally challenged /disabled. As a devout Christian and strong believer in the power of  God’s Holy Word, his book challenges all to not go along with the Same Sex Marriage Agenda and to make righteous decisions for America.
.
As an advocate for the mentally ill and disabled, he currently works with the mentally ill and substance use/abuse with individuals in a behavioral health setting. His desire is to see God’s people humble themselves, repent of their pride, rebellion and wickedness and submit to God because “He will abundantly pardon.” ~ A highly recommended read!

Kenneth John Marks writes a fascinating novel based on the Scripture that Jesus spoke and said, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.” (Matthew 7:15–16)
.
Beginning with a Prologue by Michael Dorner (the main character’s father) that was penned back in the 1950’s, Dorner journals his concerns for choosing of a certain pastor, Stan Gordon. The author then segues into a narrative from Jake Dorner, his son as he looks back upon his childhood upbringing and writes of his memories of when Stan Gordon came to preach. As the story unfolds, readers will see that Michael Dorner’s concerns were well-founded as A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing reveals.
.
Addressing such heart-felt issues as God’s grace and forgiveness, this book takes readers on a journey through different characters in need of God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. Such issues as guilt, abortion, the foster care system, etc. are addressed in this engaging novel that speaks against false teaching. The author does a great job in laying a foundation of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ that glorifies God in all His ways. A very intriguing, thought-provoking read that points others to the grace of Jesus Christ.

Diary of a Charismatic: Essays on the Spirit Filled Life by Robert LaBarge offers insight into his journey and what being a Spirit-filled believer looks like.  Once an Atheist, Robert LaBarge shares about his coming to salvation in Jesus Christ brought about by the 1970’s Charismatic Renewal movement that impacted the Catholic Church and his entire family.  His personal journey is marked by finding true love in Jesus as Lord and being powerfully touched by the Father’s Love.

.

In each short writing the author relates Scripture and presents Biblical teaching to many aspects of the Kingdom that shed light on life in the Spirit. Beginning on being born from above and the moving of the Holy Spirit and outpourings around the world, document the Charismatic movement and speak on such subjects as: salvation, Jesus as Lord, trusting in God, the grace of God, as well as the spiritual gifts that were indicative of this movement.  Offering encouragement and guidance into how to receive the gift of tongues also brings further discussion on other gifts such as: the gift of prophecy, discernment of spirits and deliverance, and gifts of healing that offer readers wisdom.  With candor, and some light humor, this book will assist readers in coming to know Jesus that brings a deeper understanding of what being filled by the Holy Spirit means Biblically and experientially.

.

The author offers a true Biblical perspective of the Charismatic movement for those that doubt and gives readers knowledge that the focus of that movement is really understanding that Jesus IS Lord – Lord of Your Life, coupled with coming to know Him in intimate relationship. He condemns the idea that the Spirit-filled life is emotionalism conjured up to make one feel good, great worship, etc., and also shares that there is available from On High a Baptism in the Holy Spirit that continues today, citing quick historical evidence of modern-day Acts signs and wonders. His point remains steadfast that signs and wonders did not end with the last apostle; they are evident in the Church throughout history.

.

The author makes a fantastic statement that describes what life in Christ is meant to be that I have to include (p.11), “Modern Pentecost is about surrendering our souls to everything that the Father desires for us. It is about us being weak and Him being strong and the Holy Spirit leading us in our weakness to do strong things. It is about faith that is alive, hope in the midst of the worries of this world and learning to love all those with whom we share this earthly soil. And it is about trusting Him, that when we yield our heads and our hearts, our feet, hands and tongue, that He knows who we are and can do all He has promised.”

.

An amazing read and comes highly recommended for those that desire for more.
