Dancing through the Storm focuses on these concepts: You can recognize and resist abuse in relationships. Love can only be expressed properly through knowing God intimately and knowing yourself. A healthy relationship doesn't just happen. It is the fruit resulting from heeding the promptings of the Holy Spirit and applying God's Word in every situation. Marriage is a "God thing," created by God before sin entered the world. A blessed marriage is a synthesis of three not two because Christ is to be the head. Through Christ, you can fully recover from an abusive situation.

In a culture where gender neutrality is the ideal, why is it significant that we were created differently as male and female? As the ethical consequences of the gender debate in the last generation manifest themselves, this book explores biblical teaching in order to work toward a Christian perspective. This discussion traces the theme of creation as male and female through the canon from the Pentateuch to the epistles and demonstrates how Pauline interpretation flows from Genesis 1–3. The grounding of the distinction between male and female in Genesis 1 as the climax of creation suggests the ethics associated with creation as male and female abide universally and for all time. This book intends to present a comprehensive, yet reasonably concise, presentation of biblical teaching on creation as male and female without bogging down in the detailed disputes between complementarian and egalitarian writers. This discussion considers each passage within its literary context, and patristic writers from the first few centuries of the church function as a control on interpretation.

There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.

The revised edition of A Theology for the Church retains its original structure, organized under these traditional theological categories: revelation, God, humanity, Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the church, and last things. Each chapter within these sections contains answers to the following four questions: What does the Bible say? What has the church believed? How does it all fit together? How does this doctrine impact the church today? Contributions from leading Baptist thinkers R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Paige Patterson, and Mark Dever among others will also appeal to the broader evangelical community. Included in this revision are new chapters on theological method from a missional perspective (Bruce Ashford and Keith Whitfield) and theology of creation, providence, and Sabbath that engages current research in science and philosophy (Chad Owen Brand). Chapters on special revelation (David Dockery) and human nature (John Hammett) have also been updated.

Melody prays that your spirit is quieted after reading her book and you are freed to politic from biblical conviction and insight, versus loyalty to this world's systems.

Prepare to Overcome: A Believer's Response to God's Call to Intimacy. The signs of the times, the end of the age, the last days, are words and phrases we are hearing more and more. Indeed, the signs are surrounding us and for those with eyes to see, the end of the age is surely drawing near. But what does that mean, exactly, in a practical, day-to-day response for a child of God? Is it just enough to know our place in history? Jesus admonished the Pharisees and Sadducees for their inability to discern the signs of the times; believers are exhorted to watch and be sober, but then what? Are there things to do in preparation?It is a great privilege as a believer to be chosen by God to live in so significant a time in history. The references to the last days in the Bible build to an ever-increasing crescendo until reaching its full culmination in the proclamations of Revelation to overcome.To overcome is to be victorious, undefeated, to prevail; by default, to not be overcome. As students of Bible prophecy regarding the last days in which we live, it becomes apparent that the Overcomers are an elite company defined by God as His choice ones, superior in their humility, and therefore victorious in their day. They are likened to the Obedient, the Royal Priesthood, the bride, the messenger of the Lord, and His Zadok priest.Contrary to the assumption of many, not all qualify; there are conditions that must be met. In the end, the only opinion that will matter on the great and terrible day of the Lord is His; all people would do well to know what it is. Indeed, there is much to prepare to overcome.

God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit It was the hope that the idea of The Holy Spirit and Me would be highlighted in some of the verses that I picked in the people I chose to portray and myself. Part One The women whom I chose to relate to my great-grandmother Mwandiitaani Madzianike are Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Bilhah, Zilpah, Hannah, Peninnah, Elizabeth, Naomi, Ruth, Orpah, Samsons mother, Anna the Prophetess, Michal, and Tamar. They shared a few common things with her, one of which is the fact that they were either barren or associated directly with someone who was barren, and barrenness caused their husbands to have children with other women. Then they all later had children or remarried and had children. This led me to Deuteronomy 7:14 KJV, which states, Thou shalt be blessed above all people; there shall not be male or female barren among you or among your cattle. Part Two That led me to the Saurombe Clan, whose great-grandmother is Mwandiitaani Madzianike Saurombe. She was married to Saurombe the Third after she ran away from her first husband, only to discover later that she was pregnant. Saurombe married her, and she had fifteen children. The Holy Spirit and Me The Holy Spirit and Me is the rest of the book. I hope you will find it interesting and encouraging that God wants us to know that he cares for all our needs, and his word is true, always.
