Last Days’ Warning to the Church

Who Goes To Hell ~ Recommended For Every Person, Believer Or Not, To Review And Consider ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews. 

Kindle Special .99

This book is a Last Days’ warning to the Church. Stating that the return of Jesus is near, the author asks a poignant question, “Will Jesus be coming for you? Or, will you hear him say, ‘Depart from Me. I never knew you.’ ”

This is a stern warning against complacency perpetuated by wrong doctrine. In this book, the author presents fundamental teachings that will help one discern the Kingdom of God, and what is required to enter. Digging deep into Scripture, the author journeys, records and comments through a resounding amount of teachings and scripture verses, offering an overview of the main elements of salvation and the Kingdom of God. 

Sound Biblical doctrine remains the focus to include the parables of Jesus. Developed through much study, one would do well to read this book and discern for themselves and ask, Are they going to Heaven or have they been deceived either by self, the world or both?

With discernment and insight, this book has 64 chapters explaining who goes to hell with many other teachings explaining the temporal and the eternal. While that may sound daunting, the book is laid out well, giving each chapter its own subject title. Making each subject easily understandable, the reader will understand what the Kingdom of Heaven is like, understand Who Jesus is and why we need to be re-born into the Kingdom of God, understand who goes to hell, and so much more, while offering fresh revelation, insight and inspiration into our inheritance as believers in Christ. 

One will come away knowing the paradigm of the two co-existing realities: the Kingdom of God in Heaven and on the Earth. Additionally, both the New and Old Covenant teachings are also included within the book, which gives readers a firm grasp of the curse of death that Adam brought and the new life Jesus offers through His death on the cross.

Influential, powerful and most importantly Biblical, this book is full of wisdom for these Last Days to becoming a pure and spotless Bride that Jesus is returning for. This is a highly recommended read for every Christian, unbeliever and skeptic. Get your copy of Who Goes to Hell: The Lie Christians Believe as a download in Kindle.

Christian Book Review - Diamonds in the Dust: The Story of a Compassionate Woman in Northeast India

Steven Ritland and Sentikumla Ao release Diamonds in the Dust: The Story of a Compassionate Woman in Northeast India.

CBM Christian Book Reviews - 10.0 out of 10.0 stars - 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.

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. Her 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!

You may order your copy of Diamonds in the Dust: The Story of a Compassionate Woman in Northeast India in Kindle as download. It is also available at Barnes and Noble and at other fine online bookstores.

A Truly Fascinating Read

You will love reading Don's new book. 

With chapters such as: The “Ends” of the World, Eden’s Analogy, The Death of Adam, The Righteous Shall Never Be Removed, Spare the Rod-Spoil the Child, The Gathering, The Seventh Trumpet, The Twinkling of an Eye, The Meeting in the Air, It Doth Not Yet Appear, Looking for His Appearing, Lightning from the East, The Parable of the Ten Virgins, and Closing Remarks clears the author also ends confusion about the return of the Lord, the End Times, the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, with additional teachings on Jesus’ parable and Scripture that lead the Body of Christ into spiritual maturity, thus emanating the image of God. Additionally, with Greek root words keen scriptural insight speaks of a transformation within that fosters a renewing of the mind and debunks traditional church beliefs.

Adding that, “The religious church systems, both denominational and nondenomination, alike have lost their first loves. Rather than bringing their converts back into the image of God and revealing to them their true identity.” 

The author has written a book to reveal true identity and the purpose of the gospel of the Kingdom of God. His book preaches the Kingdom and the transformation of the mind and spirit, to be led as Sons of God by the spirit of God.

This transformation takes place as we continue to reign with Christ as Ambassadors of Christ and His Kingdom. Unveiling the meaning of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, leads us to twelve gates of Heaven that are a Fellowship of Suffering – all must partake of to enter. 

This is spiritual maturity, as one grows from glory to glory. The Church has forgotten this or does not know it.  Dethroning of the carnal mind to a perfected mind in Jesus Christ, as His Bride, is the process the church must go through.

One Flesh

And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh. Matthew 19:5

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.

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

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.

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!
