The Life Of Faith (book review)

Mrs. C. Nuzum was a missionary to Mexico for many years in early 1900’s. For twenty-seven years she lived in constant pain and suffering health, unable to do very much and was worn out very quickly. God gave her a healing touch, restoring her health, strength and abilities. This was done by faith in God and in His word and promises. Her life was one lived by faith.

Although this book sounded like one that would talk about her life, it does not talk anything about her life past the first chapter. It is more about how to live a life of faith.

Beginning with salvation, Mrs. C. Nuzum looks at what the Bible says that believers have. She looks at what it means to put aside the things of this world and to live a pure and holy life for God. She points out the power that believers can have in having faith and resisting the devil. Finally, she looks at what faith is and how to make it grow.

Throughout the book she is constantly using scriptures. Most of the scriptures used have a reference as to where to find them. Others just quote part of verses in her own words.

Even though this book is very short, it is packed full of truth. It is a lot to digest and apply to one’s life. There is no condemnation in the book but will challenge the reader to look at his life and examine how he is living it, whether by faith or not by faith. She encourages every believer to take hold of what God has given by faith, knowing and trusting that God’s word is true and faithful in every circumstance in life.

I highly recommend reading this short book. Although it was originally written in 1927, what it contains is true and applicable to today.

Jesus Politics
How to Win Back the Soul of America (book review)

Phil Robertson, famous from Duck Dynasty, takes a look at Jesus in politics and the voting booth. He believes in having a kingdom manifesto–a public declaration of policy based upon God’s Kingdom and standards according to the Bible.

In each chapter he takes a look at major issues that can be found in the voting booth and politics. Beginning with a self-experience that brought him to understanding the issue, he then goes into what the problem is. Then he takes a look at what God says in His word about the issue. At the end of each chapter, he challenges the reader to take action and how to take that action inside the voting booth. He also does a short synopsis at the end of the chapter of each chapter pointing out the problem, the manifesto of the King, and putting it into action.

Some of the issues he looks at are money/business, gun ownership, environmental issues, family life, healthcare, mercy and forgiveness. Throughout each chapter he uses a lot of scripture verses and also quotes from the founding fathers of America. He points out how leaders in America have turned America away from the Godly principles the nation was founded upon.

I really enjoy how he weaves in stories of his experiences dealing with each of these issues. Phil is not extremely harsh in pointing out the faults, but he also does not back down from the truth placed in God’s word. It is made very clear that it is the responsibility of believers to vote people into public office who will not back down from holding up God’s word as law in the land.

Whether you are into politics or not, I highly recommend reading this book to have a good view on what is occurring in America in the voting booth, especially this year with voting this week. It is a fairly short read and very easy to read. Phil will encourage you to take a stand for God in the voting booth to make America great and one nation under God again.

Jeter Women–Lives of Courageous Faith, Sacrifice, and Service (book review)

Betty Jeter Jernigan is a married lady who was born into the Jeter family line filled with missionaries. She and her husband are currently missionaries to recruiting and training Emergency Service Chaplains through the Assemblies of God.

Led by the Holy Spirit she undertook to draw up stories covering five Jeter women since 1883 up through 2013. The five women she writes about are: Callie King Jeter, Theola Tucker Jeter, Ernestine Jeter Doan, Louise Jeter Walker, and Gertrude Dudte Jeter.

With each of these women Betty looks at some of their childhood, young life, work, missions work, marriage, family life and death. Some of their stories are very funny, some very sad, but all are encouraging. Each one shows great amounts of faith, while also having fears and discouragement in troubles and challenges. Some were kicked out of nations because of their work, others were under times of severe war in the immediate area where they were living.

It is amazing to read about the number of lives that they touched for God in many different ways all over the world.

Many of the stories show how much faith these women had put in trusting God and His Word with their entire lives. They often sacrificed a lot to be able to do what God asked of them, putting aside their own lives to reach others.

Betty points out that each of these women had met their full potential in God for His mission for each one on this earth, whether they lived a very short life, as Theola, or a long life, as Gertrude.

I have personally met Gertrude and two of her sons, both missionaries today. She was a great woman of God. I also personally know Betty and her husband Dr Robbie Jernigan.

I highly recommend reading this book if you love true stories, stories of missionaries and faith building stories. It will challenge your faith in God and being all that God has called you to be.

The Theft Of America’s Soul (book review)

Phil Robertson, from the show Duck Dynasty, takes a look at America and what has changed in America and what has caused that change to occur.

In this short book, each chapter takes a look at a lie that many Americans have chosen to buy into and believe. All of the lies begin with the lie that God is dead. The premise is that if God is dead, then everything else breaks down and can be changed.

Throughout the book he looks at ten different lies. A few of these lies are: truth is relative, sex is for self-gratification, God did not create life, and Christians should keep quiet.

Each chapter begins by looking at the lie and how it is promoted, then he shows what Scripture says and how it is a lie from the devil. Scripture is constantly used throughout the book. He also quotes many of the founding fathers of America, pointing out how America was built upon Biblical and Godly principles, but has walked away from them. Phil also uses a lot of examples in his own personal life on how he had once bought into the lies and how God changed his own life.

This book will make many of the woke people in America angry. It goes against the culture being promoted in America today. He challenges believers to see the truth and work to be a witness and bring America back to God.

I highly recommend you read this book. Open your heart to hear what God has to say and to see the truth of how America has had its soul stolen by the enemy and what can be done about it.

The Goblin Hunters (book review)

The Goblin Hunters (book review)

This is the sixth book in this series by Samuel Schiller. In the last book the Third Legion had beaten the Moloch priests and the First and Second Legions that had rebelled against King Osric.

The Red Goblin, Klabaga, was angry that the priests had lost, but set out to seek the help of a group of trolls from the Zarrin Tappeh to go against the humans again.

While Klabaga is raising his army, Evan follows God’s leading to go somewhere and is captured by Ahmed and sold to the enemy. Aine Ceallaigh gathers the Third Legion together to go through the mountains to gain help against the rising goblin armies. The chance of surviving the trip through the mountains is very slim, but they go anyways.

Throughout this story many lives become intertwined with each other that were previously separate. One of the main characters realizes some mistakes he has made and the horrors of the priests of Moloch. He chooses to become a believer in Iosa (Jesus) and follow the One True God.

Several characters learn to hear from the bird, Julian (the Holy Spirit) in guiding them on their journey. Klabaga can notice that Evan is in the area with the Spirit of God upon him.

This story is very graphic in its descriptions of the battles that occur between the goblins, trolls and humans. It flows back and forth from the goblins to the humans describing what each are doing. There are some parallels to some of the characters in the Bible as to what some of these characters go through on this journey and battle.

Focus on God and His power is often referred to by the characters. Hearing and obeying God is highest priority that many learn as they go along not understanding God’s leading.

Sadly, this book ends with an opening for another book and stating that it will continue in another book, which is, as of yet, to have been written. I will not reveal how the battles end. It may be good or bad. You must read the book to find that out.

I highly recommend reading this book, only after reading the previous five books in this series. It is an encouraging story to build one’s faith in God and trusting that God will make a way where there seems to be no way. It also shows that life is often a series of battles against the enemy, though most often not physical ones as found in this story, but of spiritual battles.
