The Day I Met Walt is based on a true story about a four-year-old little girl named Aleesa who got in trouble for not telling the truth but learned a life-changing lesson from that one mistake. She immediately went to Jesus for comfort. And not only did he comfort, he forgave and continues to show his love and remarkable grace. Through this lesson of repentance, God gave her a gift and a new family friend and restored hope and joy in the heart of a burdened soul. By empowering Aleesa to write this book, Jesus is continuing to bless many others through the retelling of this simple but remarkable story! May your heart be joyous in the Lord today and every day as you experience the power of his love!

Glancing to the left, Jeff was surprised to see the small, white church sitting a hundred feet off Highway 85 in the middle of a field of bright, yellow daffodils. He had never seen so many daffodils in his life. There was nothing around except for the small church in the daffodil-laden field, a parking lot to the rear. He wasn’t sure if he had ever seen a whiter church, it seemed almost to glow in a reflective yellow. The illuminated message sign by the highway is what really captured his attention.
Some seventy years ago, in a California mountain community, Frances Metcalfe formed the Golden Candlestick, a remarkable covenant fellowship dedicated to worshiping the Lord and interceding for the nations. For more than fifty years, they experienced some of the most extraordinary encounters with the King of Kings, and now for the first time, their complete works are compiled in an authorized, three-volume set by James Maloney, in honor of the heritage they conferred to The ACTS Group International.

Throughout the body of Christ, many students and teachers of the end times are awakening to the solidly Scriptural basis for the Islamic Antichrist theory. Hidden In Plain Sight, which develops this interpretation of the end times, will no doubt greatly add to the growing understanding of the Church as the Day of the LORD draws near. Mark Davidson, who I have come to know and exchange ideas with over the years, is a humble and careful student of both the Scriptures and history whose work must now be considered by everyone who seeks to understand the days ahead. -Joel Richardson, husband, father, New York Times Bestselling author of Islamic Antichrist, co-author of God's War on Terror, internationally recognized speaker and activist.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fight cancer at sixteen? Have you ever asked yourself how someone could be diagnosed with cancer and still believe there’s a God or that something good could actually come of it? Have you ever considered what it’s like to live after being struck with such a catastrophe? When I was sixteen years old, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. While in the hospital, many people gave me journals and pens and told me to use the gift God had given me to write. Not long after I began my journaling process, God laid it on my heart that I would someday publish my journal to encourage others. Three years later, my story is published just for you. I pray that it makes an impact on your own story. After all, that’s why we’re here, to make an impact, leave a legacy, and be love, all on behalf of Christ. I hope your perspective is transformed by the beauty of Christ as you step into my world and witness it shatter and heal in a way only explained by the God of the universe.
Many people join churches for the same reasons they would join a local country club: it is close to their home, their friends are members there, their kids like it, and it doesn’t require much commitment as long as you are current on your dues. Church membership must mean more than that! Our reasons for becoming members of a particular church must be more philosophical than pragmatic. When someone stands before an entire congregation and becomes a member of a particular congregation, we should see that moment as a high and holy moment where the vows being taken are weighty and significant. There are usually only two times in someone’s life that they stand before a congregation and say, “I do”—at their wedding and when they join the church. Don’t Swear in Church (unless you really mean it!) is designed to help all of us consider and reconsider the significance of the vows we take as the Bride of Christ.
From the popularity of cable television shows concerning building choppers or the criminal aspects of the motorcycle gang lifestyle, to the phenomenal success of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, no one can deny America has become fascinated with bikers and the machines they love. Author Dave Spurgeon provides a firsthand look into the world of the Harley enthusiast and beyond. He takes you to where few have dared to tread—into the sinister, and often misunderstood, reality of the true one-percenters. He takes you on a ride into a place about which many are curious, but few know well. Be advised: This is not the exhaustive work of an investigative reporter, nor an account of the zealous efforts of an undercover law enforcement operation. This is the personal chronicle of Spurgeon’s 15 years in the fast lane. Sobering, sometimes humorous, yet always painfully accurate, it begins with his love affair with the motorcycle and then continues into the ominous 1%er Brotherhood of the bike gang culture in America. You will be educated, entertained, warned, and enlightened by this brutally honest narrative from a man who has been there and back and lived to tell about it.

By the author of Obsessed.
