The Holy Spirit At Work

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.  

A battle starts to take place in your mind as soon as you become a Christian, because the enemy wants to get back what he has lost. The Holy Spirit wants to keep what has been accom­plished. The satanic forces will put thoughts into your mind that are contrary to what the Lord wants you to think. You have to decide whose thoughts you are going to accept. 

The mind of each one of us has a controlling factor, which is the spirit of the mind, and must also be renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit, see Ephesians 4:22-32. God wants to renew your mind, to remove the contamination that could have filtered in by being in contact with the world. Allow yourself to be “washed” in the Word daily. The closer you get to Him, the less of the world will stick.

Testing Our Faith

Here is a book that every new Christian should read,  Christian Basic Training by Craig TFeigh helps new and mature believers alike get back to the basics of their faith.  10.0 stars ~ CBM 

As Craig states, “Like fire tests gold and silver, God commands us to test ourselves daily (2 Corinthians 13:5) to be sure that our heart is right with Him and that we can defend and articulate our faith.  

Faith: Testing our faith is essentially getting back to the basics and building for ourselves a strong foundation.” This is the premise of this foundational book that will build faith, instruct believers in sound Biblical doctrine and provide a keen understanding of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

As a believer in Jesus Christ, one understands that decisions made here upon Earth have an effect on our eternity in heaven. In this book, Craig TFeigh reveals some alarming statistics of Americans polled in regards to their faith. An alarming 66% of the 89% Americans polled are not sure whether they will get to heaven or not. This makes it necessary for Christians to understand the basics of their faith and what the cross did for them.

In addition, the author reveals through scriptural interpretation your identity in Christ. This is a simple way to understand many of the questions you have about the Bible that gives not only firm scriptural truths, but gives a firm foundation to build upon. Whether just coming to Christ, or as a well-seasoned believer, the foundations never change and it almost guaranteed that readers will learn something in this book.

Overcoming Depression's Grip

Soul Doubt by Leo J. Battenhausen, as an author and psychotherapist, discusses the overwhelming and detrimental impact that depression and suicide are having upon society in the United States. 

Additionally stating  alarming statistics from the World Health Organization (2016) that suicide and depression are presently at an “epidemic high”. The author also adds that the organization’s prediction is that by 2020 depression will be the most diagnosed disease after heart disease. 

These facts, coupled with society’s views and attempts to “cure” depression with various treatments and drugs, bolster our culture that expresses itself as its own God. Selfishness, greed, media, government, and liberalism’s mantra have taken away from family and marriages like we have never seen before in the United States. 

With this in mind, the author makes an impressive statement – People need God and need to believe in God. With a focus on giving solutions to depression and suicide, intertwined with keen insight, he offers this book to help others recognize and be free in their souls from destructive thoughts and behaviors that are literally killing many.

Giving an overview of healthy parenting and relationships that include marriages, the author explores the human condition and the soul. Offering a laymen’s view of the soul, he explains the doubts we possess in relation to satisfying the deep void within. 

Despite technical advances in this information age, the author shares that we as humans are not developing as we should and have forgotten who we are. Advocating that parents invest in their children in meaningful ways, to include their parenting skills, he also exposes a spiritual side to the issue of the mind, soul and emotions. Offering readers an understanding of the realm of the soul, a secular worldview is also considered. His position is that we cannot ignore our souls, which is the essence of who we are.

Revealing what really wages war against our souls, will and emotions, the author has written a compassionate book that speaks frankly to believers and non-believers alike, sharing that there is hope and a solution to this soul problem. Well-balanced, informative, encouraging, his insight is an important work tackling the woes that plague our society, but more importantly offers real answers and hope that presents truth. The truth that God is real, and that we all need God, is something that the author will not compromise. Stating in his book description, “Soul Doubt breaks through with solution-focused answers and PROVEN ways to battle depression and suicide.”

Truthfully, this is a much-needed book in today’s society. As a skilled professional, he knows the human condition and speaks of the healing of the soul, mind and spirit. Presenting a wealth of knowledge, the spiritual battle, modern-psychology, the author offers real answers to those who are suffering or know someone who is suffering. This comes as a highly recommended must-read for all parents, married couples raising children, teens, young adults and newly married couples.

America’s Beginnings and The Bible


The Christian faith and the Bible

In America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible: A Select Study on America’s Christian Origin, Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D. shares America’s rich biblical history and Christian heritage. CBM Christian Book Reviews ~ 10.0 out of 10.0 stars

Focusing on the American Revolution and afterwards, the author writes that America was founded on Christian principles and biblical practices that our Founding Fathers instituted, stemming from the formation of our government and the Continental Congress. 

Unwaveringly the author also reveals contrary claims by secularists and irreligionists that America was founded and “arose from the barrenness of secularism,” give way to an intriguing book that gives insight into America’s beginnings, formation as a nation and the underlying Christian legacy of America as a nation.

Divided into three sections: The Continental Congress and the Bible, Three Founding Fathers on the Bible, After the American Revolution, Conclusion: American Renaissance and coupled with three Reading Sections -  Defense of the use of the Bible as a SchoolBook, President of Congress Starts Bible Society & By the Bible or By the Bayonet, the author sheds light on the legacy of freedom, commitment to the Christian faith and the Bible, that helps readers understand and presents a brief glimpse into the motivations and truths from which our Founding Fathers relied upon.

With this perspective in mind, this book also provides viewpoints propagated from American Academia, jurisprudence and other disciplines that seem to ignore the facts. Further giving an overview of the initial thirteen colonies that sparked America’s growth and the first decrees of fasts and thanksgivings originally declared, coupled with the ensuing American Revolution, the author shows that America is a country that is nationally based upon the Bible. As the author states,Rather, both private and public writings overwhelmingly demonstrate that America's Founding Fathers intended and did establish American government upon biblical principles and practices.” 

This simple, yet historically accurate read comes highly recommended to all Americans, Patriots, Christians, college students and to the general public that serves as a reminder to get back to the foundational principles our country was founded on. Knowing your heritage and history is important and this book presents a keen understanding of “how” our great nation came to be. 

Concise and to the point, factual information presents and relates the importance of the Christian faith and the Bible in America.  History’s past can be confusing, yet this book is one of those books every American should read, know and understand. It is our privilege, duty and honor to take a stand for what was so costly – our freedom.

Sins Forgotten

Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.  

When you come to Jesus and ask Him to come into your life and make you a child of His, He does what you ask Him to. You have now become His child. 

The Holy Spirit, who caused you to come to the Lord in the first place, next bears witness with your spirit that you are a child of God. Thoughts that God rejected you, or you are not a child of His, doesn’t come from God, and must be resisted. 

The enemy may remind you of your past, telling you that you were very bad, but remind him of what the Word says. Isaiah 43:25 tells you, “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”  

Start rejoicing that you have been made a child of God, and His divine protection is over you. Expect the Lord to give you guidance, and to direct you all day.

The power of the Holy Spirit

Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, accord­ing to the power that works in us.  

Have you tried to overcome difficulties, but seem to remain trapped? It is necessary to replace the old vision in your mind, to one of victory the Lord has for you. God wants to give you a new vision for your faith to work from. 

This new inner image will show you that you are to be free from the problem that has affected you. The prospects of believing it will come to pass, will sometimes be more than you can think that God will supply. 

Expect the promise seen in Ephesians 3:20 to be fulfilled in your life. This power God has for you, is already flowing through you, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Raise your level of faith, then release the words the Holy Spirit wants you to say, which will cause the changes to take place. God is faithful, and will fulfill His Word in you.

Real Life accounts of Heaven

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! ~ CBM 

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!

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.
