The truth about Spiritual Warfare
Among some other false doctrines in the church today, two of them have really serious consequences for believers. Although they are integrated with each other the second doctrine is actually a result of the first one. These doctrines are “generational curses” and “spiritual warfare”. Although both these doctrines have no Biblical foundation, many Christians believe in them like they believe in Christ Himself.
This book proves that “Spiritual warfare” is a false doctrine. The necessary Scriptures that support this statement are discussed in detail. People are actually oppressed just because they believe in this doctrine. This book will challenge your beliefs on this subject and it will set you free.

Understanding the prophetic times we live in (A report of imminent events)
During the morning hours of Tuesday, June 2, 2015, the Lord Jesus Christ instructed me to write this report. He called it a “report” because He wanted me to write it as a “report of imminent events” to those who wish to understand the prophetic times we live in. The aim of this report is to bring clarity and to counter confusion in the lives of many Christians regarding the end times, especially regarding the prophetic time we live in at this moment. The Lord’s aim with this report is clear: Clarity will equip and enable God’s children to follow His vision for and in this time period we are living in now. It will enable them to report for duty. It will enable them to become mighty instruments in God’s hand. End times ministry does not only mean that God is at work. It also means that we have some part to play in order to enable God to carry out His plans. This report will enable God’s children to stand up and be counted”.

FREE BOOKS: END-TIMES DOCTRINES AND PROPHECIES!
Have you ever wondered why the Roman Catholic Church invented the very popular end times doctrines that mainline churches so often thrust down our throats? It was invented and made popular in order to keep the church in bondage. This evil strategy was unfortunately very effective but, I am pleased to say, the battle for the truth is not over yet! Increasingly more and more pastors and scholars of the word of God are being set free from these erroneous doctrines.
Right through the ages God’s true and faithful servants kept the true end times doctrines and prophecies alive. Many of these servants of God wrote wonderful books on this subject. Because of the importance of having these books in your personal library, I took the liberty to prepare an excellent compilation that you can download for FREE below.
These books will keep you updated on what God is about to do in the earth, where we stand on the timeline of Biblical prophecy and how the Jewish nation of Israel really features in end times prophecies and end times events. You are in for a wonderful experience and many pleasant surprises whilst you explore these Biblical truths. Believe me, these books will set you free!
A Brief Commentary On The Apocalypse
This is my all-time favorite book on end times doctrines. It has been and still is one of the best commentaries on the book of Revelation that I have read. If you want to get into the best, most learned analysis of the end times, this book is for you. Sylvester Bliss really wrote an all-time bestseller here. It is just absolutely excellent!
The Hope Of Israel
This theological classic demonstrates that modern Dispensationalism’s doctrine of the restoration of an earthly kingdom to national Israel is a revival of the very same erroneous teachings which led to the crucifixion of Christ and the persecution of the early Christians by the apostate Jews. In the book, Philip Mauro proves that Israel’s involvement in end times prophecies is not what mainline Christianity from within the ranks of the institutional church wants us to believe. If you want to have an unclouded and clear perspective on end times prophecies and events, you really need to read this book. This is excellent reading material!
Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the
Apocalypse of St. John
Originally published in 1733, this book is more than an interpretation of some prophecies contained in the Bible. It also reveals Newton had knowledge of many aspects regarding history and the first followers of Christ.
This is a book I read online years ago and thought I needed to add to my bookshelf. Isaac Newton had some special insight into Biblical Prophecy. He really opened my eyes in understanding the Biblical symbols of Daniel and the book of Revelations. Besides Sylvester Bliss, Isaac Newton also played a big role in changing my view on end times prophecies. Chapter 2, which covers the different meanings of the symbols in the Bible is especially of great value. I really recommend this book to the Bible scholar who wants to know what the books of Daniel and Revelation are really all about.
This book can also be read online here: Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John
(J. Stuart Russell)
A classic defense of the Preterist view. Goes through the whole New Testament examining every text which talks about the Second Coming (Parousia) and explaining how they were all fulfilled in the first century in connection with Christ’s coming in judgment upon the Jewish nation in AD 70. Originally published in 1878. Examines every NT text which relates to the Second Coming, showing that it had to occur at AD 70. This is the book which convinced David Chilton and many others. Endorsements by Walt Hibbard, Gary DeMar, Ken Gentry and R. C. Sproul, Sr. Second Printing of New Edition. Includes Russell’s “Afterword” from his 2nd edition (1887), a picture of Russell, and biographical sketch. Forewords by Walt Hibbard and Ed Stevens.
What Happened In 70 AD?
(Edward E. Stevens)
An excellent introduction to the preterist view. Easy to understand. Affirms the first century Return of Christ. The Matthew 24-Luke 17 chart, list of fulfillments mentioned in Josephus, chart on the intensification of the TIME statements, and the annotated bibliography of preterist writings make the book “worth many times its price” (according to its reviewers). Affirms the completion of all NT books by the time Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70. There is a regular printed version of this book available as a separate product in the National Preterist Association website store.
The Analysis Of Sacred Chronology
If Chronology is “the soul of history,” it is equally so of prophecy. Without it, the Scriptures would lose much of their harmony and beauty. It is carefully interwoven into the sacred text, and gives the order and dependence of the several parts on each other. The Chronology of the Bible is as important in its place as any other subject of revelation. When disregarded, sad errors have been made in locating the historical and prophetical Scriptures. This book will help the Bible student to understand Bible prophecy.

The Geneva Bible
(Tolle Lege Press)
The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James Version by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th-century English Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress (1678).
In 2006, Tolle Lege Press released a version of the 1599 Geneva Bible with modernized spelling, as part of their 1599 Geneva Bible restoration project. The advisory board of the restoration project included several Protestant Christian leaders and scholars.
This Bible is the most authentic Bible that I have ever compared to the original languages and texts. Feel free to use this Bible as your primary source of information for Bible studies. There is just not a better translation than this. It can be conveniently read online here: 1599 Geneva Bible
A hard copy of the Geneva Bible can also be obtained here: Tolle Lege Press or you can download it for FREE at the link below
American Dictionary of the English language
The Noah Webster English dictionary is the only dictionary that can safely be recommended to the Bible Scholar. Unfortunately all other dictionaries, concordances and lexicons are just not worth utilizing. Very few Christians know about the hidden or underlying dangers of utilizing concordances, lexicons and dictionaries. Please read the post, “Recommended Bible Study Tools” for more information on the many pitfalls of utilizing concordances, lexicons and dictionaries. It is really an eye-opener.
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary contains the foundation of America’s heritage and principal beliefs. It is contemporary with the American Constitution.
It is an excellent reference for classical literature, Bible studies, history papers, and the ground work of explanation and reasoning for America’s national documents.
Christian readers will find it rewarding to compare Webster’s definitions of such words as: marriage, education, sin, law, faith, and prayer, with those given in any modern dictionary. The difference gives an appreciation of early American values.
The dictionary can be read online or it can be downloaded for FREE.

So You Don’t Want To Go To Church Anymore
(Wayne Jacobson and Dave Coleman)
What would you do if you met someone you thought just might be one of Jesus’ original disciples still living in the 21st Century? That’s Jake’s dilemma as he meets a man who talks of Jesus as if he had known him personally.
One: Unfolding God’s Eternal Purpose from House to House
Just as Jesus and the Father are perfectly ONE, Jesus desires His people to be included in this complete oneness. He made the ultimate sacrifice in order to achieve His consummate goal: He died on the cross for all people, and, in triumphant resurrection and ascension, He gave three gifts so that “. . . they [we] may be ONE.” The three profound gifts are: eternal life, truth, and His glory. No, He did not leave His people with a religion, because religion results in division—but, instead, He lovingly bequeathed His followers with free gifts. When these gifts are received and enjoyed, dissimilar people miraculously become ONE. These three gifts bring joy, love, peace, kindness, fulfillment, and purpose for all people. God’s eternal purpose is for humankind to enjoy such a wonderful and mysterious ONEness together, in Him, as the uniting bond of peace. This book expounds on becoming and functioning as ONE through these three gifts. It was written so that both Christians and non-Christians alike can easily understand it. It will take you on a journey through the Bible, into God’s eternal purpose, and into your own home (from house to house). Jesus prayed that when His people are ONE, then “. . . the world may believe. . .” in Jesus Christ. Today’s dream: Reset to ONE; Revival Next!

The Naked Church
THE NAKED CHURCH is an invitation for believers to forsake superficial Christianity and discover true intimacy with God. This compelling book will challenge you to look beyond the externals of contemporary church life with its glittering buildings, extensive programs, beloved celebrities and political muscle and find a relationship with God that will bring his powerful, life-changing presence into everyday circumstances. At a time when it’s popular to be “spiritual” and easy to be “religious,” Wayne Jacobsen sounds the call back to the joy and freedom of a dynamic relationship with the living God.

Starting organic churches
A Short and Simple Guide for the Newbie By Milt Rodriguez
It’s now very documented that over 60 million American Christians have left the institutional/traditional churches over the last ten years! What is going on? Are these folks dropping out of everything? Have they fallen away from the faith? On the contrary, they are looking for MORE! That is, they are looking for much more than they received from the institutions. They are looking for more of the life of Jesus Christ in His people. They are looking for more freedom to live by and serve this Christ. They are looking for a Family, a group of believers who share their lives together. In other words, they are longing for the authentic expression of Christ in and through His Body, Bride, House, Kingdom, and Community!

He Loves Me: Learning to Live in the Father’s Affection
So many Christians believe God’s love is fickle: when they sin, He turns away in disgust and anger. They vacillate between “He loves me” and “He loves me not” because of their behavior. That reasoning, writes Wayne Jacobsen, is as flawed as pulling petals from a daisy. Rather God’s love is sturdy, enduring, and undisturbed by people’s failings because God loves humankind not for what they do–but who they are. They are God’s beloved creation.

Grace the forbidden Gospel
(Andre van der Merwe)
“With clarity and efficiency Andre rips the lid off confusing scriptures and shines such brilliant light upon them that will fill you with edge-of-your-chair excitement. I guarantee you that all through this book you will be saying “Wow, I’ve read that scripture so many times before but have never understood it like this!” (Ryan Rufus – Pastor, City Church International, Hong Kong)
“What a treat to read a truly non-religious book that effectively reveals God’s amazing grace towards mankind. In this book Andre clearly shares Jesus; who he is, what he’s done and what life in him is all about. Explained is the huge difference between Old and New Covenant living and the common problem of mixture. Reading this book could cause you to experience new found identity, freedom, and boldness.” (Art Henkel – Director, Grace Connection Canada)
Rethinking the will of God
This book is a synthesis of several conflicting positions on the subject of God‘s will. Namely, the mystical (God‘s will is known only to our spirit) and the reasonable (God‘s will is revealed to our mind). More importantly, it is a discussion of how I have practically resolved the issue in my own walk with the Lord. (Frank Viola)
Freedom from religious bondage
True religion is the practice of the presence of God in one’s life. There is no greater demonstration of faith than a man who walks with God in the good times and even in the bad times; a man tempered by trials, strengthened by His grace and devoted to humility. But what happens when religion has become a by word for an institution rather than a walk of faith or a pilgrimage with God? In this book you will learn how to walk with faith, overcome religiosity and be set free to live the abundant life God has called you for. (Edison Macusi)
The Convergence Code
(Dr. Lance Wallnau)
This book is a great tool in helping you discover how to get 100% clear on your calling – and what to do first!
Do you know what personal convergence is?
Convergence is the place where your gifts, talents, and acquired skills combine with a role that empowers you to do what you were created to do. It is a word to describe what happens when you enter your ultimate purpose —you become actualized, come alive, in a role that pays you to do what you do best. This divine assignment becomes “the work” that your whole life has prepared you for. The convergence stage of life taps into your power to make an ultimate contribution. What’s an “ultimate contribution”? It’s Moses freeing his people, Joshua enabling them to possess their land, David consolidating a kingdom, and Solomon building a house as he administered the nation at the height of its glory and power as a type of the kingdom to come. In this stage of life, the leader is moved into a position that makes the fullest possible use of their experience, temperament, talent, etc.
