James: How Then Should We Live? A Bible Study Series From the Book of James by Matthew A. Knight offers a short Bible study sharing wisdom and insight that offer readers Biblical principles the Church and individuals are to live by. 

James, nor the author, compromises and the author has written this series to point Christians to what Scripture says and speaks of in conducting church and thus, walking out our Christianity by our deeds. These principles are key to living a “true” Christian walk and inviting the Holy Spirit into congregations and one’s life. Whether new or mature believer, this book will ignite faith and wisdom that bring hope in the new way of living in Christ.

With such chapters as: Favoritism, Taming the Tongue, Covetousness: the Cause and Cure, and A Warning to Rich Oppressors, introducing readers by the famous quote, “Faith without Works is dead.” So one might ask, What does that mean? How do I show faith and do good works? Are they both the same thing? Giving Biblical wisdom, the book of James, and the author’s additional explanations go along way to helping one understand that God’s ways are higher than ours.

This is a highly recommended read for all Christians, reminding them to go back to the basics and remember why you are different as a Christian, as an ambassador of God, and how the spiritual and the practical come together. This means you not only profess to be a Christian, but follow Christ’s commands in your relations to others around you. Mercy triumphs over judgment and all are called to this holy road.

Gospel for Asia News Release – For Immediate release.

WILLS POINT, TX (ANS – February 9, 2018) -- Missionary organization GFA (Gospel for Asia, www.gfa.org) is calling attention to a usually ignored, delicate subject at the heart of much of its caring work -- a lack of toilets.
In the first of a new series of major articles tackling big social issues, GFA has drawn back the curtain on the widespread health problems caused by lack of adequate sanitation—and the opportunity that provides for sharing about God’s love.
Around 2.3 billion people globally do not have access to good sanitation facilities, reports Karen Mains, while almost 900 million are forced into open defecation -- a practice which is, she notes, “hardly a dinner-table topic or a mission committee agenda item.”
But such practices cannot be ignored, because they create all sorts of health problems -- with about 1.5 million people around the world each year dying from polluted-water diseases. Nor are the dangers limited directly to sickness -- women are often at risk of assault when they look for somewhere sheltered to relieve themselves.
Governments and organizations are responding to the need, including one foundation which offered financial incentives for innovative approaches to new toilet technologies.
Among the innovations are a solar-powered toilet that converts waste into charcoal, which can then be used as fertilizer; portable rickshaw toilets; and a bio-digester toilet designed to convert human waste into gases and compost.
In addition, Mains says, “hundreds of concerned social entrepreneurs, engineers with altruistic motivations, East Asian water initiatives, and countless faith-based organizations are tackling the seemingly intractable worldwide dilemma of toilets, sanitation systems and sullied water.”
Inadequate sanitation is a big concern in India in particular, where the current prime minister, Narendra Modi, campaigned for office with the slogan “Toilets Before Temples.”
For the past several years, GFA has also had a heightened focus on the issue throughout Asia. In 2016, the organization constructed more than 10,000 latrines with dual-tank sanitation systems.
In addition, GFA teams constructed almost 7,000 “Jesus Wells” providing communities with fresh drinking water, distributed almost 15,000 water filters to purify drinking water, and provided thousands with free healthcare and education about the importance of personal hygiene.
Such efforts have made a big impact. “This saved the lives of people from illness,” said one villager. The results have been spiritual as well as physical, with people experiencing God’s love through the GFA representatives.
“Christianity has everything to do with sanitation,” Mains writes. “We serve a God who is expecting us to help restore the world he created to its original design. That is a world, among many other things, without rampaging diseases.”
The special report, “Saving Lives at Risk From Open Defection: using outdoor toilets to improve sanitation,” has been published at GFA’s website (www.gfa.org/special-report/open-defecation-outdoor-toilets-improve-sanitation). Other topics to be addressed in the series include social justice, illiteracy, community development, and violence against women.
Commenting on Mains’ article, GFA founder Dr. K.P. Yohannan, said: “God is desperately concerned about the poor and suffering, and even more so the helpless and vulnerable… Now God has given us the opportunity to show the world what He looks like through our mercy and compassion, which can be shown through something as simple as noticing and seeing these people who are without a safe, working toilet” (www.kpyohannan.org/2018/01/04/sharing-gods-heart-poor-helpless/).
He added: “Helping those who are vulnerable and in need is not a burden or an obligation, but an opportunity to be like Christ by entering into their pain and then choosing to do something about it.”
From free healthcare to fresh water and sanitation projects—providing an outdoor toilet for a family costs just $160 -- much of GFA’s community-based work is centered in improving living conditions and inspiring people to live fuller lives as a result.
GFA (Gospel for Asia) www.gfa.org and its world-wide affiliates have -- for more than 30 years -- provided humanitarian assistance and spiritual hope to millions across Asia, especially among those who have yet to hear the Good News. Last year, this included more than 82,000 children, free medical services for more than 180,000 people, 6,000 wells drilled, 11,000 water filters installed, Christmas presents for more than 600,000 needy families, and spiritual teaching available in 110 languages in 14 nations through radio ministry.

A Fruit Bearing Ministry

Diamonds in the Dust: The Story of a Compassionate Woman in Northeast India by Steven Ritland and Sentikumla Ao reflects the missionary work of Sentikumla Ao. Mrs. Ao's grandfather worked with the famous Rev. Edwin Clark, whose missionary work in the early 1900's to the Nagas created the only state in India where Christians form 90% of the population. Her biography presents her work that continued his work and was God’s call on her life. Revealing God’s love for the unwanted, the broken and the addicts in the farthest remote region of India – a separate state known as Nagaland. Sentikumla's ministry focuses on rehabilitating victims of drugs, alcohol and HIV/AIDS, overflowing from Nagaland into the neighboring state of India, Assam. By God’s grace in action and the “unrelenting” love of God, this book reveals a completely surrendered life of serving God selflessly.

Reflecting the heart of God, seeking the lost and those outcasts the world rejects, this book is a tribute to God, to missionary work and to those who completely yield their life to whole-heartedly serving the Lord – no matter the cost. You will see in this biography the Word of God come to life. Make no mistake, there is sacrifice and pain, but the joy, the peace, and the rewards outweigh all that are available on Earth.  

If you are thinking about living a transformed life or missionary work, this is a book that portrays the grace of God in such a unique way. Sharing her life story, the missionary, Sentikumla and Steven Ritland have put together this book along with photos that will certainly make an impact on one’s life.

As one Spirit and faith-filled believer, this mighty woman and missionary is used by God as the hands and feet of Jesus. Through her work, caring for the poor addicts, much fruit has been borne and God is revealed, displaying that He can work mightily through one person that is dedicated completely to Him. This is an inspirational work that shows just how far God’s love can reach, that His arm is never too short, and it is only pure joy to yield to God, as this one missionary has. 

Sentikumla's ministry has produced much fruit within the community, churches and governments. The tide has changed in the way drug addicts are now treated (in some parts of India) and they now have hope and a place to go.

If you would like to get involved with the support of these programs for the youth, her contact information is provided. Her ministry is a worthwhile ministry, “. . . saving that which is lost.” AMAZING!

“Diamonds in the dust reflects the wonderful redeeming and passionate love of God that tirelessly looks for the lost and broken, regardless of sins, class, race and socio-economic structure.” ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews - 10.0 out of 10.0 stars

He Sent His Son: Eyewitness Accounts

He Sent His Son: Eyewitness Accounts by Jim & Carol Zeigler takes readers through a delightful experience of eyewitness accounts taken from the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth in Luke and Matthew. 

Beginning with the announcement of the Angel Gabriel to Mary, readers will gain keen insight into the sharing of the events leading up to and following the birth of Christ. Concisely written, the author highlights the true meaning of Christmas, the salvation of Jesus and what that means to those who believe and those who would not believe. Jesus’ birth and His coming as the Messiah was foretold in the Bible as the author gives insight into the Jewish traditions, the names and meanings of some of the Hebrew names of God while speaking of the hope in the One who was born to save all who would believe upon His Name.

Revealing the political and religious climate in Jesus’ time, and mentioning historical aspects of the Bible, Jesus’ prophesied coming in Isaiah, coupled with the events leading up to Jesus’ birth make for a faith-filled journey. As Christmas is just around the corner, the author speaks of Christmas as one of his favorite holidays. Yet, traditionally speaking, he describes Christmas as a time of benevolence, gift-giving and time with family. This “worldly” way and commercializing of Christmas has crowded out the holiness and honor that this season holds for each person who believes (and for those who do not yet believe). He speaks of the Christmas holiday that has become nothing more than a greedy intent to bring money surrounded by false traditions and stories such as Santa Claus, the Elves and Reindeer. (One cannot dispel the fact that he speaks truth about the Christmas season and what the commercialism, not to mention spending money that we don’t have). Thus, the purpose of the book is to remind and teach others of the sanctity of Christmas and point those to the Messiah that was born to die for His People’s sins. 

The author states (speaking about Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds, the Wise Men, the Inn Keeper, Herod, Isaiah, Simeon and Anna, “We can learn from them the way we are to live our lives, believing God will always accomplish His will. We need to live expecting His appearance anytime.” Powerfully written, this book will speak to your heart and mind, bringing such a deep appreciation for the salvation of Jesus.

With such chapters as: Gabriel-The Angel Sent from God to Announce the Coming of Messiah, Mary-The Young Mother of Jesus, Joseph-The Stepfather Who Raised Jesus, The Innkeeper-Unknown by Name and Oft Maligned, The Shepherds-Those Who Were Looking for His Coming, Isaiah-The Prophet Who Told Israel How to Recognize the Good King, The Wise Men-Who Followed the Star to Find the King, Herod-The Evil False King of Judah, Simeon-Who Waited for the Consolation of Israel, and Anna-The Prophetess Who Served in the Temple.

This is a wonderful book to read during this coming Christmas season, to give to family and friends, and to teach children the deep blessing of Christmas or just to reinvigorate faith. Hats off to these writers who took the time to remind us all just how important and wonderful this season is!

This book also comes highly recommended to use an evangelical outreach to those that would need the faith to believe. He Sent His Son is an excellent faith-filled journey through the birth of Christ that will not only rekindle faith, but also birth faith in others to believe in the salvation of Jesus as the Savior and Messiah of the World!

Available In Kindle - The Splitting of the Adam


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CBM Christian Author Press Release

Waynesville, Ohio – Author and teacher, Don Felumlee, releases his new book: 
The Splitting of the Adam: It’s Time to Awaken!

Intriguing and Insightful, Don Felumlee writes a powerful book, exploring the highly debated subject of the coming of the Lord ~ CBM

Written to expose the word of truth, revealing that the Bible “interprets itself,” thus unveiling a journey to spiritual maturity for the Bride of Christ into the image of Christ. Stating that those who believe are called to become spiritually mature, revealing a need to utter abandonment in the Lord. The author makes it abundantly clear that it is the Harvest that is first and foremost on the Lord’s mind. Therefore, he sounds a great awakening call – like a Trumpet - to the sleeping Church. With prophetic insight and keen scriptural study, he presents to readers the spiritual ascension of Jesus’ Bride-as the image of Christ- and brings a Biblical understanding of what that will look like.

Written to those who understand that the Lord requires a surrendered heart, mind and soul, Felumlee points to a great awakening coming to shake His Church, as we approach the coming of the Lord, that will be encompassed by the hope and power of the Kingdom that is available to EVERY BELIEVER.
With a multi-faceted approach, author and teacher Don Felumlee speaks on the subject of maturity and the End Times, debunking traditional beliefs on such subjects as:  The Rapture, The Great Tribulation, the Bride of Christ, offering the importance of teachings from the Bible and Jesus’ parables on His appearing and the Ten Virgins.

This book opens eyes and hearts to understanding that a “Splitting of the Adam” must occur as the author states, offering a fresh and divine perspective. Fascinating, Don Felumlee’s new book brings revelation of the Word and deep scriptural truths, recommended for new and mature believers alike.   
As an author, teacher and one who has studied his Bible for many years, holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Ohio State and a Diploma from Rhema Correspondence Program in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Don Felumlee wants believers to know power that is available to them through Christ in the here and now.

He states, “What Satan is most afraid of, is that sooner or later, every believer will ultimately discover the power of the Kingdom in the right here and now!”  His purpose is to become a voice to all who would heed Christ’s call to His End Time Church, stating that, “his eternal purpose and calling has grown ever so abundantly clear: to become a third-day battering ram against the lifeless traditions of present-day Christendom so that the image of God can be gloriously reformed within every believer!” 

He, his wife, Stacy, and their six, loving children currently reside in the small, historic village of Waynesville, Ohio.

Praising The Lord

Psalm 111:1 Praise the Lord! I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.  

When you study the rest of the above psalm you will see that you are to praise Him for His faithfulness and justice. Praise Him with your whole heart. 

The more you sincerely praise the Lord, the more you will find that God will give you something to praise Him about. Many Christians limit their praising the Lord to the times when they have something to be joyful about. 

They hurt themselves by doing this because they limit the power of God from flowing through themselves. There will be times when you do not feel like praising the Lord. It then becomes necessary to spend time giving a sacrifice of praise to God. 

The more you study His Word, the more you will find things to praise the Lord for. Make a real effort to become better acquainted with the Lord through praise.

The Transformed Life

With heartfelt compassion, the author’s hope and prayer in reading this book is that individuals will find lasting freedom in Christ and come to an understanding that they are more than conquerors in Christ.

Global News Releases presents The Victim’s Cry: Discovering Hope & Healing Through Forgiveness by Steven D. Griffin is an encouraging book that exposes truth from a Christian perspective to help readers find lasting healing and freedom from past offenses, pain and unforgiveness. 

Christian Author Steven D. Griffin presents steps to dealing with past offenses, disappointment and deep bitterness, the author writes from his own journey after separation in his own marriage. 

The author Offers Biblical knowledge, and additionally sharing some of the reasons why we suffer in this world, the author writes a concise, yet simple book to discover hope and healing through the power of Christ. Full of Scripture and Biblical insights on the issues of forgiveness, heart attitudes and judgments are examined that presents to readers refreshment to the soul, giving them practical solutions to seek after God and His plan for healing. 

You will also learn from the Introduction that the book is a God-birthed book written from someone who has experienced God’s plan of restoration. As the author highlights this statement from the Lord, “I want you to write a book about My plan of rescue for people who have been hurt. Many of my people are bound up, and I will use this book to help set them free.” The author offers hope to those who feel like victims. What is quite unique is that he begins with the definition of a victim. As it turns out, we all have been victims at one time or another. 

Divided into 5 Open and Shut Steps to Freedom, such issues as selfishness, bitterness, anger, hatred, judgments address heart attitudes that help readers identify these feelings and emotions, turning to God for help. Once identified through a godly lens, the truth of God’s Word is applied and a renewing of the mind begins, refreshing and cleansing the troubled heart and emotions. This is a wonderful book that gives the keys to finding restoration in one’s soul that brings a transformed life, and in turn transformed relationships through forgiveness. Readers will find that broken relationships can be repaired.

I cannot recommend this book enough, in that it gives the Biblical steps to finding restoration in relationships and helps readers take a look at their own heart, inspiring them to look up to God. Reading this book also produce godly character by presenting to readers a practical application of God’s Word. Freedom will be found if the steps are applied and the person submits to God. Increased intimacy with Christ will also be developed and lasting peace, love and joy will be found as people are set free.

This book comes highly recommended for anyone that needs encouragement, understanding and hope to issues that have caused strife, division and separation within their life.  For those struggling with anger, resentment, depression and unforgiveness, this book will help those individuals release these feelings and find relief. I have to say to the author, “Thank You,” for hearing from God and having the courage to follow through. His testimony of how he clearly heard from God and obeyed is inspiring!

In The Press - Christian Basic Training

A must read Christian book - CBM Christian Book Reviews


Christian Basic Training: The Basic Foundational Principles of the Christian Faith by Craig TFeigh helps new and mature believers alike get back to the basics of their faith. 

As the author 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.  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 child of God and 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.


Created for individual use and within a group setting the author offers classes on Christian Basic Training and encourages all to understand the truth of God’s Word. This is a highly recommended read that covers a broad spectrum of the key foundational principles of the Christian faith that enlightens many facets of the Gospel in an easy-to-understand and fascinating read.

It was this discovery that others were desperately trying to steal, and even kill Kevin for. The dangerous race to the finish line to redeem his wife’s work is almost complete.

Full of edge-of-your-seat drama, the author begins by drawing readers into Kevin’s world with an action-packed scene driving through Iraq’s arid desert. Adding to the validity of the novel, many believable discoveries of recent archeological artifacts confirm the reliability of the Bible as an accurate historical document. As well as mentioning the existence of certain key characters in the Bible, such as Pontus Pilate, merely bolstering the truth of the Bible.

Each chapter flows into the next and there are many mysterious happenings as Kevin remembers his beginning in this mission as he was pursued by mercenaries on a vendetta to stop him. Why are they so interested in stopping this grand discovery of a lifetime? His travels lead him to the Middle East, namely Iraq, as he continues his wife’s life work.  Filled with nuances, Kevin comes to terms with his grief over his wife and reconciles that all things are possible with God.

Encouraging all believers to trust in God on a deeper level, even throughout grief and difficulties, makes this read an inspiring, intensely written Christian fiction novel. Kevin Foster is the great main character, full of integrity, intelligence and a deep love for his wife that is a tribute to the romantic side of men, reminding married couples of the agape love that should be evident between a couple.
