Spiritual Blessings

God has made available every spiritual blessing for the believers, but many have not reached out to receive what He has for them. Many don’t realize they are available, while others would rather depend on their own strength or resources, claiming they don’t want to bother the Lord.  

The purpose for these spiritual blessings is to enable you to accomplish what the Lord wants to do through you. This is not only for you, but also for the body of Christ. When Moses killed the Egyptian and had to leave Egypt, he was a general in the Egyptian Army. He failed, because he was depending on his own strength, but after meeting with the Lord, he received spiritual gifts, which enabled him to lead all of Israel out of slavery. 

Tell the Lord you are willing to be used by Him as He sees fit.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.

Kathy M. Warden releases The Bridge from OneDayBow

A must read - 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!

A Great Fictional Read

In his new book release, 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. 

Captivating, this novel involves a deeper story, one that is of spiritual warfare.

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, known as the Prince of the Air, and his 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.

Waiting for Earth’s demise – their (Lucifer and his fallen angels) goal is to keep man separated from GodRevealing 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!

Further revealing such great events like 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.

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.

This is an amazing read, one that Christian enthusiasts will love as the author has written a novel that is not only creative, but gives insight into the evil that was in the world before its beginning – Satan.

Holy Union Between Man and Woman


The Sanctity of Marriage 

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.

An insightful, powerful book that advocates the sanctity of marriage and speaks against the Legalization of Same Sex Marriage in America.  ~ CBM

Samuel A. Oghenejabor unveils the Legalization 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

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!

Peace For Your Children

Isaiah 54:13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.  

Tension is greatly increasing in the lives of many children today. Violence at school, in the street or at home is of great concern to both children and parents. Stress seems to increase in a greater measure each year, and there appears to be no end in sight. Some places have increased security measures in order to relieve the fear and tension. Many children seem to have lost their joy and appear to be very unhappy.  

The Lord promised in Psalm 91:11, “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” Remind your children of God’s promise, and tell them to depend on His Word to given them peace in any situation they find themselves in. Remind them to depend on the power and authority of the Name of Jesus. Nothing can stand against the power of the name of Jesus!

Wolves Among Us


Watch out for false prophets

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing 
Kenneth John Marks
CBM Book Reviews
10.0 out of 10.0 stars

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. - You may get your copy of A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing at Amazon or in Kindle.

The Good Helper

Hebrews 13:6 So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”  Today might appear to be the worst day of your life, but God wants to turn it around to make it one of the best days of your life.  Do you recall the Children of Israel when they reached the Red Sea? They were very discouraged because the Egyptian Army was right behind them, mountains were on both sides, a tremendous storm was overhead, and the Red Sea was just ahead. They seemed to have no answers for their problem. Then God told them not to be afraid. They were to stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He would accomplish that day. He also told them that He would fight for them and they would hold their peace, see Exodus 14:13-14. God wants to fight for you to give you a great victory today. Expect Him to undertake in a great way.

What Does A Spirit Filled Believer Look Like


Christian Author Robert LaBarge


New Release - 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 what is known as the Father’s Love.  One will find his book touching, powerful and life-changing as the author speaks with candor and Biblical wisdom that make living a Spirit-filled life easily understandable and yet, accessible to all.

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 writings that share 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.

What is great about this book is that 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., as some might think. 

The author 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. Thus, 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 that comes highly recommended for those that desire for “more” and wonder about the moving in the Spirit, the Baptism in the Spirit, the gifts and the Spirit-filled life.

Christian Author Henry Hon

One: Unfolding God’s Eternal Purpose from House to House by Henry Hon stems from his experience as a Christian within house assemblies in the Body of Christ and the scripture verse as stated in John 17:23 (NKJV) as Jesus prayed to His Father, “. . . that they be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”

Count Your Blessings and Give Thanks

2 Corinthians 6:1 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.  The first favor God has made available to us is Salvation. 

The Lord wants to save everyone, but not everyone is willing to accept it, and live for Him. Those who turn down the gift of Salvation are inferring that it was provided in vain. 

The next great favor God has, is meeting our needs on a continual basis. Many Believers frantically come to the Lord in prayer during the time of need, but after it has been met forget to thank Him, or live for Him. 

God’s favor will finally stop, because He sees that it is being treated lightly and not really appreciated. Start counting the blessing you have recently received, then praise and thank Him for them. 

As you remember them, you will be able to remind others of what God has done for you, which will show His faithfulness.

A Must Read - CBM Christian Book Reviews

This story will delight parents, (and make kids and parents alike chuckle). Little J.J. is sweet and sincere and he just can’t believe some of the messes that landed him into time out, time away from video games and grounded him for a month. Written from J.J.'s perspective, we find the inner-workings of a little boy learning about life. The author invites you into the story from the beginning and readers will be captivated by J.J. as he begins his story while having his head stuck between the rails of a staircase.

This book quickly became one of my favorite books for children, as the author encompasses facets of sound parenting that embrace communication in a fair and calm manner without guilt and condemnation.

The Importance of Stewardship

Order your copy of Back to Eden at Amazon or in Kindle. Be sure to visit the author at Dr. Simon Thiessen

Dr. Simon Thiessen gives readers an insightful and thought-provoking book that offers a systematic Biblical approach to the issues of wealth and poverty. With several key concepts, the author speaks broadly of the evangelical movement that divides into two basic groups:  

One group stresses the personal relationship with Jesus Christ while ignoring their social responsibilities to the poor and the other that stresses both a personal relationship with the Lord that encourages, a practical evidence of their faith as expressed in our responsible stewardship of our entire life. Beginning from Creation to the Fall of man, the author takes readers on a discovery through the Bible from Old and New Testament text that reveals a fascinating understanding of Scripture when it comes to becoming prosperous, what it means to live life abundantly and God’s structure of wealth. As the author states, Our purpose is to arrive at a perspective about wealth and poverty which is in accordance with scriptural teaching.

  • ISBN #978-1-4602-8484-1 (Paperback)
  • Book Review by CBM Christian Book Reviews
  • 10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Within this, and by combining academic research, Christian theology and the varying facets of human nature, the world, sin and righteousness, the author shed lights on what the Church’s social responsibilities to the poor are from a Biblical viewpoint, thus answering key questions that come to mind regarding wealth and possessions. Mentioning that God has given us spiritual and natural laws that govern the universe, the author helps readers also understand fundamentals that qualify Christians to partake of the goodness of God that involves a firm commitment to covenant that must be observed. 

Such chapters as: The Creation – Fall Events, The Concept of Possession and Poverty Invaded by Creation and Fall Event, The Sinai – Covenant Event, Wealth and Poverty in the Old Testament, New Testament Wealth and Poverty, Living in Truth – Sanctification, Christ and the Rich, The Teachings of Paul and Soteriological Implications. 

These chapters further reveal Biblical truths in such a way that one will be forever enriched, offering a balanced scriptural mindset when it comes to wealth, poverty and the worship of the Lord. The book also reveals the dangers of wealth, and what it means to truly prosper.

This is a must-read for the entire Body of Christ to be made aware of truths that are within the Word of God.  With the modern prevalence of the prosperity Gospel and for the person that has questions (in regards to wealth, materialism, money, possessions, and how they relate to eternity), this book comes highly recommended. Well-written and concise, the transparency of this book will no doubt bring deep conviction while reminding Christians of the importance of stewardship with their possessions, time and influence. 

Our privilege in the service of God is not to be taken for granted -- this book brings enlightenment, education and inspiration to those who desire a true and firm commitment to the Lord.
