Two New Books on Amazon

Strange things happen.

I had no idea I could write fiction.

For the longest time, I'd been writing non-fiction and essays.

Lo and behold, God's Light shone upon my writer's heart and said, "It's time!"

Nah, I made that up.

But God did shine His Light upon my writer's heart and got me to write two short fiction books, which at first I put on a public platform.

But God knew better.

So, the Holy Spirit gave me this idea yesterday of publishing it on Amazon, for I do have an author's page there from previous ebooks I've written years back.

But when Spirit activates you, boy, you've got to be ready!

So, anyway, the cover you see up there is "ARMAGEDDREAMS" and it's now LIVE on Amazon!

Another book, written within the same day (I know, weird) is "SCRIBU", also LIVE on Amazon.

It seems, Spirit's driving me to write a series of books, for I feel it in my bones and in my heart.

To let you in on a secret?

I've just finished writing the 3rd book in this series, just moments ago, and I expect it to be LIVE on Amazon, tomorrow or so.

Of course, will let you know as soon as it is.

By the way, I also created a new blog for my SCRIBU books which you may view here.

Please welcome into your heart my short fiction books.

This will take my end times and spiritual warfare studies to the next level, and to yours, too!

(NOTE: All books are for General Patronage, so that means all people, of all ages, can safely read my books.)

What the Word of God Means to Me As a Writer

Gone is the speed.

There is more thought now.

Better care.

Openness for correction.

Even greater responsibility.

But more zeal, thirst, and love.

And it's all for JESUS.

That's how my life has changed since GOD made me born again on 6 September 2019.

As a writer and lecturer, I deal with words.

But why must I exercise greater care with thoughts and words more than ever? 

Because words, written or spoken, have power.

Matthew 12:36-37
King James Version
36 But I say unto you, 
That every idle word that men shall speak, 
they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, 
and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

A writer with Christ in her heart, must really take more love and care in the choice of thoughts and words.

Words can either be a blessing or a curse:

James 3:10
King James Version
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth 
blessing and cursing. 
My brethren, 
these things ought not so to be.

Ideally, all my words will have come from the HOLY SPIRIT alone, the One Jesus asked His Father to help us:

John 14:16-17
King James Version
16 And I will pray the Father, 
and he shall give you another Comforter, 
that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; 
whom the world cannot receive, 
because it seeth him not, 
neither knoweth him: 
but ye know him; 
for he dwelleth with you, 
and shall be in you.

When you become a true believer and follower of Christ, everything changes.

You change, your life changes, your work changes, your manner changes, you are simply a changed person.

You only profess and reflect all things Jesus in every aspect of your life, work, word, and deed.

You become a true follower of Jesus, believing that He is the SON of GOD, sent by the Father, and have come to save the world:

1 John 4:14
King James Version
14 And we have seen and do testify 
that the Father sent the Son 
to be the Saviour of the world.

And maybe the verse below applies to those of us who are renewed in spirit, with new work to do:

Mark 2:22
King James Version
22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: 
else the new wine doth burst the bottles, 
and the wine is spilled, 
and the bottles will be marred: 
but new wine must be put into new bottles.

Only God is Good

I celebrate my two months as a baby Christian today, the 6th of November 2019.

In that time, I've started really reading the Bible and studying it, taking down notes which have filled three notebooks and used three ballpens already.

And that's only from having read Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, part of Numbers, and the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and nearly done with John.

It is no boast, my dear readers. 

If the Bible has 66 books and I've only read not even eight, that means I have 58 more books to read.

Long way to go.

It is hard work for I aim to get things accurately about God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Salvation, Eternal Life, and Bible Prophecy. 

I am not a theologian.

I'm just a quiet and independent writer and researcher who has embraced Christ in full as a two-month-old born-again Christian.

I also love God with all my heart and thirst for Jesus' Words.

The Bible has so many beautiful verses from God, Christ, the prophets, and the apostles, but somehow, ONE particular verse really puts things in perspective for me, my life, and my work, and here it is:

18 And Jesus said unto him, 
Why callest thou me good? 
there is none good but one, 
that is, God.

Mark 10:18 
King James Version

In so very few words, Jesus reveals His own humility, even as John the Baptist, His beloved cousin and precursor, had this to say about our Savior:

27 He it is, 
who coming after me is preferred before me, 
whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

John 1:27 KJV

God knows the heart of man. After the Flood, God has this to say about man:

21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; 
and the Lord said in his heart, 
I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; 
for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; 
neither will I again smite any more every thing living, 
as I have done.

Genesis 8:21 KJV

Very humbling, isn't it?

But if you can accept our true nature, then you know we all need to be corrected, and that's why we must look to Jesus as our Savior.

If you cannot accept it, then the world is still too much in you.

And you know who rules the world, right?

Check this previous post in case you're not aware. 

But all is not lost.

The Bible says that Jesus is the Way to God:

6 Jesus saith unto him, 
I am the way, the truth, 
and the life: 
no man cometh unto the Father, 
but by me.

John 14:6 KJV

If you really aim to know Christ, you must lose that ego.

Only Jesus must remain.

Remember this, then:

30 He must increase, 
but I must decrease.

John 3:30 KJV
