October 3rd, 2017

Episode 71 - Show Notes for Anita Marie York Interview pt 2

 

Anita Marie York, author of the book “Is Your Jesus The Bible Jesus?”

Biblical scholar for close to 60 years.

She has written extensively on religious topics for most of those years.

She has been published in TWO different religious journals on many occasions.

Welcome back to the program, Marie York!  Glory to God!

Background on her Spiritual journey.

Last time, we went in depth on WHY she wrote this book..

This interview, we go into some detail on the Book of Romans…

What was Paul really trying to say in Romans chapter 7?

What are the three immutable Bible facts that PROVE Christians can live, right now in this life, without sin?

What question did Paul ask that is 100% opposite of what is being taught in most churches today?

If that is the case, many churches today might say “you are wrong” in your conclusion. How do you respond when you hear them say something like that?

Where can people buy your book, “Is Your Jesus the Bible Jesus?”  Amazon?

 

 Well, folks, that is all the time we have for today…I want to thank you, Maria, for coming on our program today.  I wish you all the best with this book. It is a needful message in this day and hour.  Folks, I really encourage you to get this book, read it, pray about it, compare it to how your church has been operating…compare it to the Bible…pray about it – and let the Holy Spirit guide you in deciding if “Your Jesus is the Bible Jesus?” or just something made up to make people, basically, feel good.  Amen.

Episode 70 - Is Your Jesus the Bible Jesus? - Marie York Interview pt 1

October 1st, 2017

Episode 70 - Show Notes for Anita Marie York Interview

I would like to introduce to you someone who has written a book that tugs at a cord in my heart that I’ve been preaching on for several years…that what we – especially in America – call “CHURCH” is nothing like the “CHURCH” the Bible talks about or wants us to be about…

Welcome to the program a woman who has been a Bible Scholar for close to 60 years…has written EXTENSIVELY on religious topics over those year…has been published in numerous monthly religious journal many times…is the author of two books – the latest one is the one we will be talking about today, “Is Your Jesus the Bible Jesus?”

Folks, welcome to the program, Marie York!  Amen…Maria – welcome to the program!

Other than that brief introduction I just gave, tell us – “Who is Marie York?”

Can you give us some background on your Spiritual Journey?

What was it the prompted you to write this book?

What is the message you are trying to convey through this book?

Are you trying to “Change the way we do church?”  Many churches would say you are “wrong” – how do you respond?

If you are correct, and in my opinion you are, what should churches do?  What can pastors do?

Ok… where can people obtain your book…where can they buy it?

Do you do speaking engagements concerning your book?

 If someone wanted to get ahold of you…perhaps to ask you some questions or to ask you to come and speak to their church or church group…how can they get ahold of you?

Folks, I really encourage you to get this book, read it, pray about it, compare it to how your church has been operating…compare it to the Bible…pray about it – and let the Holy Spirit guide you in deciding if “Your Jesus is the Bible Jesus?” or just something made up to make people, basically, feel good.  Amen.

That’s all the time we have…for Marie York and myself…I want you to remember to BE BLESSED IN ALL THAT YOU DO!

Episode 67 - Living Successfully - David Ince

September 24th, 2017

Episode 67 Show Notes for David Ince

Today, I have a special guest that is going to bless your socks off.  David Ince is the Founder and Co-Director of “Living Successfully, Inc.”  David is a trained and qualified Professional Life Coach and Human Behavior Consultant through the  Christian Coach Institute, he is a published author of “From Idea to Implementation” – Living Your Passion” – a short e-book that is available on his website; he has 25 years of business and management experience in the Information, Communication and Technology field; he is a speaker and lecturer in the area of “Application of technology in business;” he is a lay preacher, a volunteer for youth track & also a field coach and he is a hobbyist photographer. 

WOW!  Help me welcome to the program, David Ince! 

WHO IS David Ince?

You are the founder of Living Successfully, Inc. How did you decide this type of organization was needful for this day and time?

What type of services do you offer to churches and to ministries?

 If a church were to call you or email you and decide they needed your services…what takes place…what are the steps in trying to help them?  What can they expect?

It’s a given that Christians are to be stewards over God’s resources – how can you help?

You say – after you have prayed – don’t forget to make a plan!  What do you mean by that?

You believe that KNOWLEDGE is the the key to success?  Why?

Discuss the term “Discernment” and how it relates to what you are offering churches (and others) through your organization.

Most powerful demonic force? Tolerance and PC

When David was in the middle of answering that question – we had technical difficulties…so you know the devil did not like what he was saying – AMEN!

September 22nd, 2017

Episode 66 - Show Notes for Debbi King

On today’s program, I want to introduce you to a child of God that has been through the fire and been through flood…but God is faithful and brought her out into her wealthy place…

Debbi King received her Bachelor of Science degree from the Univ. of South Carolina in 1990…by 1998, she had to file for bankruptcy…but armed with the wisdom and knowledge of what she learned, she rebuilt her financial life and now teaches and empowers others to do the same…

Folks, she went from over $200K in debt and only making $10K as a single mom – to being debt FREE and having a successful ministry… She is the president of Lovell Ministries, a ministry she started in 2012 to honor in memory of her maternal grandmother…amen and amen…

She is the proud owner of “The ABC’s of Personal Finance” – a recognized national personal finance and life coaching firm…a motivations speaker, personal financial expert and author of two award winning books, “The ABC’s of Personal Finance” and 26 Weeks to Wealth and Financial Freedom”

She is a contributor to multiple media outlets in addition to speaking around the country on the subject of money and living your authentic life…

Debi is happily married with a beautiful 19 year old daughter, 4 step children and 5 grand daughters!  I can relate…amen!

Folks, welcome to the program – Debbi King! 

Who Is Debbi King?

What was the situation you found yourself in back in 1998?

How did all of that happen?

Tell us about when you had your “ah-ha” moment or your “come to Jesus moment – if you will…

What kind of changes did you make to turn your life around?

So, God moved in and began to change, not only your heart, but your mind as well…how did you get your “message’ through all of the “mess?”

Why did you think it was needful to write the book, ABC of Personal Finance?

Well us about starting your ministry…why a ministry and not a business?

On your website, I see a picture of you and Oprah – how did that happen?

Are your books available on Amazon as well as through your website?

If someone wants to get in touch with you…ask you a question or to ask you to come and speak or to do an interview such as this - or to hire you to help them…how can they do that?

September 20th, 2017

Episode 65 Show Notes for Jeff Horton Interview

Have you ever wondered about changing your career…maybe writing a book or a screen play…but you were scared about leaving the secure, quote unquote – REGULAR job?

Well, today’s guest did just that. After twenty-five years in the Information Technology field, Jeff Horton decided enough was enough – and left it all behind to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Not just any writer…but an author of several family friendly books…and TWO screen plays…he has, in all, besides the two screen plays…EIGHT published novels in several different genres – including apocalyptic fiction, science fiction, religious fantasy and some romance thrillers as well.

When Jeff is not writing his next novel, he enjoys spending time with his family, going to church and reading…so not only does he WRITE stuff for others to read – he READS what others have written also!  Glory to God…

What are the names of the screen plays you have written?

Are they in any type of production, etc?

You offer a blend of Christian and Contemporary Christian writing…can explain what that means to our audience?

You have 8 novels…is that correct?  Is Heaven’s Oasis your latest one?

Tell us a little bit about Heaven’s Oasis…

Now some of the reviews for Heaven’s Oasis talk about how you intertwine the romance element into the developing plot. Some say that it sounds like some aspects of it may be based upon your own life…is that true?

 I guess what we want to know is – what sets your novels apart from the rest of the field?

What is the main topic of interest that you like to write about? Why is that?

As far as advice for up and coming authors…How do you promote your works?  It can’t be just through Amazon…there has to be other other avenues of up and coming authors to gain access to…can you give any information on that?

 Folks…I don’t know about you…but I have been blessed by what Jeff has been sharing with us today…I want to encourage you to go to his website…www.hortonlibrary.com – and just look around…read some the clips he has there…read some of the reviews…and – most of all – purchase a book!  Glory to God!

Episode 63 - Sentence Sermon Ministry - Dr. James Harvey

September 10th, 2017

Episode 63 - Sentence Sermon Ministry - Interview with Dr. James Harvey

 

OK…today, we have a very special guest on our program…and he is going to be discussing some things that you may have heard me preach about before on my radio program, “Freedom Through Faith.” Dr. James Harvey is the founder of “Sentence Sermon Ministry.”

Dr. Harvey has authored three books in his professional life. He has authored ten books in the field of Christian living and has been a newspaper columnist as well. Dr. Harvey has been a community college president – AMEN – a senior vice president and partner in an international management consulting firm based in Washington, DC; a former dean at Hope College and has his MA and PhD degrees from Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan – just down the road a bit from my hometown of Port Huron, Michigan – Glory to God…and Dr. Harvey also has broad experience as a public speaker on a wide range of topics.

Dr. Harvey explains what “Sentence Sermons” means and how it is helping churches.

With these signs, the churches are actually ministering to the thousands that pass their churches everyday.

But, I’ve seen some signs that have a “cute little quote” – you know, like “You think it’s hot now – come inside and get saved from the real heat wave that’s coming” and things like that…you know, that makes you roll your eyes… Is that the kind of things you are recommending?

I’ve seen some signs that seem to stay up for months. How often should they be changed?

What are some of the requirements a church should have in place to do effective ministry like this?

Tell me about your email newsletter – from “Perverse University”

You believe churches need to rethink how they treat their seniors. What do you mean by that? How should they change?

You have written a book entitled, “The Resurrection – Ruse or Reality”…This book takes the reader into a court room setting where they must make a decision as to the outcome of the trail of Jesus. Correct?

 I did my Master Dissertation on the same subject at Johns Hopkins University. I then turned the dissertation into a book called, “The Six Trials of Jesus” – it was more a less a book on Leadership as well as a book on the resurrection…but I’m not here to talk about my book…

Tell us about your book and how you would like churches to “rethink” how they teach on the resurrection. What do you mean?

 You have written several other books as well: Seven for Heaven; 701 Sentence Sermons, Volume 4 is on your website – I take there are also volumes 1 thru 3?

And the book “Run Through the Tape?”

Are all of these available on Amazon as well as your website?

LIGHTENING ROUND:

What book are reading now?

How can we know there is a God?

Last question?

Episode 62 - Women in Ministry, Missions and Discipleship - Dee Stokes pt 2

September 6th, 2017

Episode 62 - Show Notes for Dee Stokes Interview - pt 2

 

Today on the program, I am continuing the interview with Dr. Dee Stokes. Due to time constraints, i was not able to conclude her interview on Episode 61. She has some very important, vital and powerful information she provided as we wrapped up our interview - including THE LIGHTENING ROUND! And I wanted to make sure you got it!  Amen!

So, you may hear some things you also heard in Episode 61, as we "rewound the tape" (so to speak) in order to provide you with the information at the end...but that's OK, because it will be good for you to hear the other things again! AMEN!

Now, let's just back into the interview with Dr. Dee Stokes. I am providing a lot of the same show notes from Episode 61, in case you want to follow along, contact her or order her resources.

 

I want to introduce you to a woman who has the heart of God – FOR God’s People…and she has done it all…amen.  DOCTOR DEE STOKES is a retired professor AND basketball coach on the college level…I’ll let her tell you a bit about that….I think that is just awesome!  But after 18 years of basketball she decided to get into the BIG GAME of winning souls and guiding people to the cross…amen!

 

 

Dr. Dee shares some of the problems she faced in making the decision of leaving her teaching and coaching career to go into full time ministry.

Dr. Dee shares some of the obstacles she had to overcome.

Dr. Dee shares with us her heart for missions and gives some insights about a missions trip she recently completed in Peru and Columbia.

Dr. Dee explains how she uses seminar, mission work, workshops, etc. – not only to provide services to pastors – but in an effort to impact players she has a chance to interact with.

Do consider your work as one that makes disciples?  How does discipleship training work through your ministry?

One of the areas you are very familiar with, unfortunately, is grief…you have a section on your website called, “Grieving the Death of a Dream.”  Tell us about that…

 Dr. Dee has written several books, “Experiencing Grace: One Woman’s Year Long Journey with God After the Death of Her Mother” and “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inside Basketball Edition” and “21st Century Leadership” – and some others….and she explains what 21st Century Leadership means and what she sees we need to do as we go into the 21st Century.

 

THE LIGHTENING ROUND:

What major project are you working on right now?

What was the number one thing that held you back after accepting your call into ministry?

What was the best piece of advice you received concerning your call into ministry?

Besides the Bible, what book are you reading right now?

What is your favorite ministry program on TV?

How can we know there is a hell?

How can you know for sure you are saved?

Last Question: If your life and ministry was a dream, but God allowed you to keep all the memories and experiences, what would you differently and why?
