Are you by chance thinking to yourself:



It won't get any simpler or straightforward than reading this 'FREE' book by Dr Norman Vincent Peale


PS: Curiosity, depression, anger, frustration, negativity ... this book invented 'simple' 🙂

Consider: the evidence available of our Living God, Jesus Christ

"And all were astounded at the evidence of God's mighty power and His majesty and magnificence. But [while] they were all marveling at everything Jesus was doing, He said to His disciples, Let these words sink into your ears: the Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men [ whose conduct is opposed to God]" - Luke 9:43-44 

Consider: the evidence available in support of our Creator going into 2019

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" - John 1:1-3


Just sixty (60) years ago, our North American Continent was still proudly and rightfully boasting the works and evidences of our Living God, with renowned published books, including 'The Power of Positive Thinking,' full of testimonies from paupers, psychiatrists and psychologists, family physicians, and corporate leadership.

Jesus said: "You Must Be Born Again"

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. “Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:5-8


In the fall of 1987, after being asked to leave the matrimonial home of his second (2nd) wife, with an eight (8) month old daughter up stairs asleep in her room, yours truly was introduced to this 'Jesus' by way of a book entitled 'The Power of Positive Thinking,' by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale; we could categorize this book as anything but religious ... and if read as a remedy for stress alone, the pharmaceutical and medical centre world today would be shy 40% minimum of its need.

Jesus said: "I have overcome the world" so let us sing to the Lord!

... or this perhaps

... or this

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." John 16:33 | Come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1 

Knowing and teaching the word of Jesus to our children remains a wise decision - Select your language and listen

"You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up." Deuteronomy 11:19 


Killing rampages, excessive bullying, weapons and violence, especially in our school systems, never took hold until after 'The Holy Bible' was removed ... the book that teaches: You must have no other gods before me; You must not make yourself an idol image or bow down to them; You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God; You must have one day of rest (Sabbath) in every seven; Honor your father and mother; You must not murder; You must not steal; You must not testify falsely against your neighbor; You must not covet anything belonging to your neighbor; I will lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands - OR - I will lay the sins of the parents upon the children in the third and fourth generations to those who reject me.

*** When you click on the bible it will open to the book of John. For the greatest benefit we encourage everyone to start here, then Matthew, Mark, Luke, and on through the balance of the New Testament. As for the Old Testament (OT), begin with Proverbs then Psalms and then from Genesis through to the end of Revelation. Somewhere along this journey, as with all readers, you will begin to sense as to why people refer to this book as the living word of God. Our Creator God and Savior...Jesus Christ is alive and well ***

Some come to know Jesus by way of a 'too-close-to-home' analogy

"Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom." Proverbs 11:2 


We are all human! For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. All sin can be forgiven! Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved. We are saved by faith, not by works! 

ARE YOU GUILTY AS CHARGED ... SOWING THE SEED OF EXPECTATION and blaming yourself ... feeling you must be doing something wrong or inadequate for not receiving said gift as promised by the one asking for such a seed?

*** Take 8 min 53 seconds and watch 'Giving With Conditions is Not Giving to God' 

Give in proportion to what you have. 12 Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. 2 Corinthians 8:11b-12 (NLT) 

We must never add nor take away from God's Holy inerrant and infallible word: Deuteronomy 4:2 | Revelation 22:19 | Proverbs 30:6  



Have you fallen for it? Yours truly, has, as well as millions of others have also.

Ministry has become all about the seed you sow, and not the word of God.

*** False Prophets ... start HERE

*** False Teachers ... start HERE

*** Idolatry ... start HERE

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." Luke 2:14 (KJV)

"But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people." Luke 2:10 (NIV)

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37 (HCSB)

When We See The World For The Black & White it is

Not denying it ... Not running from it ... Knowing its true colors ...

... that truth begins to set us free ... unimaginably

Seeing The World for what it is, is Not a Bad Thing

Being bold for truth is not judging any one or any thing ...

When we put God first...we become the best spouse, parent, friend, neighbour, co-worker, etc., etc., while discovering plentiful love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and goodness in return for faith alone.

But hold on a minute, you're thinking: "I've known plenty of Christians and they've been as bad as those who are not!" No excuses! Unless God is first, we too are no different than anyone else apart from one crucial point; the soul of a born-again Christian will live on for eternity...they are saved.

4 verses from scripture can help - John 11:25 * Romans 10:9-10 * Romans 10:13 * 2 Corinthians 5:21

God wants you to know Him

God's greatest desire is for you to see a clear picture of His character. When you see Him clearly, you will find His love irresistible.

His Face

For many, "seeing God clearly" requires that they see God's face. However, how He looks is not the issue. Seeing and understanding His character is what's most important. The more clearly we understand Him, the more we will find His love irresistible. As we begin to experience His love, our own lives will begin to make more sense.

God most clearly reveals His character in three great events. The first is His creation of man and woman--and His giving them the freedom of choice. He created humans with the ability to choose to love Him or to hate Him! The death of Jesus Christ, God's only Son, on the cross as our substitute is the second great event. In that act He paid the penalty we deserve for our hateful choices toward God and His ways. Jesus' death guarantees forgiveness for those choices and allows us to spend eternity with Him. The third event confirms the first two and fills every heart with hope: Christ's tomb is empty! He is alive, living to fill us with His love!

God to You

Jesus' disciple John wrote that if everyone wrote all the stories they knew about Jesus, the whole world could not contain them. Our knowledge of God helps us understand His love, character, and grace. Experiencing that love begins a lifelong adventure in growth and service. This knowledge and experience powers our mission to tell the world about His love and His offer of salvation.

Scripture directs how we live.
Scripture is a road map. The Bible is God's voice, speaking His love personally to you today.

The Bible speaks the Creator's directions to us, like a detailed road map that clearly shows the exit ramp directly into heaven. It is also much like an owner's manual for a life ready to be lived on the cutting edge of liberty.

Sometimes His voice speaks through stories, such as those of David and Goliath, Ruth and Boaz, Naaman's little servant girl, Christ on the cross, and fisherman Peter learning how to tend sheep. Some of these stories teach us how to handle the troubles we face each day. Others fill us with hope and peace. Each of them is like a personal letter from God to you.

Own Choices

Portions of Scripture are direct instructions and laws from God such as the Ten Commandments, recorded in Exodus 20. These tell us more about God and His expectations for us. When people asked Jesus to summarize these commands, He focused on the way God's love affects the way we live. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind," He said. And "love your neighbor as yourself."

On other pages the Bible gives God's practical advice and encouragement through parables, lists, promises, and warnings. Amazingly, though many different writers throughout thousands of years wrote the Bible, each page describes the same God in ways we can understand and apply in our lives today. This book is always His voice talking personally to anyone who is willing to read and hear.

God loves us even when we choose to reject His love. In those times He allows us to walk away into the life of our own choices. Yet He is still there, always ready to redeem us from the results of our decisions.

Jesus is the one who never changes in a universe that always does. Jesus is Creator, Sustainer, Savior, Friend, God's Son, and God Himself!

God's Will

Everything in this world is always changing, even our desires, interests, skills, and body shapes. But Jesus? He's consistent. He's always the same. Sure, He's always surprising us and touching our lives in thousands of new and different ways, but His character is unchanging. He's God's Son, the Creator, our Savior, and Friend.

Jesus has promised to be all of that, and more, for each of us. We can trust His promises because He is God. When the words of Colossians say "in Him all things hold together" (1:17, NIV) that includes everything in our lives. He keeps us whole when the enemy is trying to make us fall apart.

'We Are Not God,' identifies with scripture, word for word, nothing added, nothing taken away, all 31,173 verses worth, that Jesus is one of the three persons, called the Trinity, who make up our one God. The Bible describes Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit as each being committed to our growth as Christians and to our salvation as their children. They made this salvation possible when Jesus came to Bethlehem as a human baby. He lived a life perfectly in accord with God's will and then died innocently for all of our sins. He was placed in a borrowed tomb, but He came back to life three days later. Now he is in heaven interceding with the Father for us, preparing for our deliverance from sin and death.

His Face

When everything may be falling apart, when you feel totally alone in the universe, Jesus is right there in the center of it all, offering personal peace and hope. Allow Him into your life. He immediately begins "remodeling" who you are and how you live. Jesus, in fact, is busily transforming His followers into accurate representatives of God's character.

Look to Jesus, and you'll be looking into the understanding and loving face of God.

God's vision for you is  life as He lives it!

God loves you, and wants to give you the highest quality of life imaginable.

No, not a second-rate existence somewhere on earth, but the highest quality of life imaginable, here and in eternity with Him! That's what God wants us to have. The best!

This is why He provides church families where we can belong. This is why He gives each of us special gifts and talents, so we can live life fully. Amazingly, this is why He's concerned about what you're doing, when you're doing it, and how you relate to Him. God doesn't want anything to get in the way of our friendship. He especially doesn't want us to get involved in anything damaging or hurtful. He's like a loving father or a good big brother. He's someone who loves you so much that He's always looking out for you.


When God designed you, He included special talents and skills that will help you become a uniquely valuable individual. These may be your ability to teach, your love for others, or your leadership skills. Still, whatever special gifts you have received, God has also provided all of the energy and wisdom necessary for you to use them well.

By the way, how God feels about death is part of the quality life He offers. For followers of Christ, death holds no fear. Remember, Jesus defeated death on Calvary and has given us freedom from death. Cemeteries, then, are filled with followers of God who are in the "peaceful pause before the resurrection." Yes, they are dead, but that death holds no power over their future. Jesus is coming to take them (and those of us who are still living) HOME! Death is almost like a wintry promise of spring.

Faith for today, and for the future, comes by way of seeing this life "overflowing" with hope!

Because love is the key aspect of His character, God is also deeply into gratitude. Before we even finish saying thank you, He's already busy sending more blessings.

His Rest

In the heart of God is a place you can experience as home. God loves you, and wants to spend time with you personally, one on one, as two close friends.

Because you and God are friends, you will spend time together as friends do. Each morning you'll share a hello and a hug and discuss how you can face the day's events together. Throughout the day you'll talk with Him about how you feel. You'll laugh with Him at funny things and ache with Him over sadness and hurts. It's pleasant being God's friend, able to snuggle comfortably into the safety of your relationship. You can always trust Him to treat you well, because He loves you.

The seventh day (Saturday) is an extra-special part of the relationship. The Bible, from Genesis through Revelation, describes the seventh day as the one day God has set aside for focused fellowship with His people. God has named that day "Sabbath" and asked us to spend it with Him. "Remember the Sabbath day," He says, "to keep it holy." The Sabbath is a whole day to deepen our friendship with the Creator of the universe! A day when we're together, Jesus with us and us with Jesus.

We do not argue the point of celebration services being on Saturday or Sunday, as it is also fair to believe as supported in scripture, that Jesus became our rest, our 'Sabbath,' our 24/7, 365 day a year overseer.

No Limit

Also worth mentioning, we read in the Aramaic Bible, Mark 9:39 - Yeshua said to them, “Do not forbid him, for there is no man who does a powerful work in my name and can soon speak badly about me." In other words, in fair assessment, if we are speaking truth in Jesus' name, no matter the day, He is not about to cast us out because of it...and both Saturday & Sunday of rest wouldn't nor couldn't hurt any of us.

There's another great truth about friendship with God. It doesn't end in a cemetery, for God is planning a homecoming better than anything we can dream. A homecoming filled with angels, trumpets, Jesus, and resurrections! He's promised to being His followers, those who have accepted the offer of His life-changing love, from this earth to His home, a place He calls heaven. A place where our friendship can go on growing forever, endlessly, joyfully!

God keeps a family album and your picture is in it. God loves you and has a plan for your life. God's love is about you. Personally.

God made you and has a very special plan for your life. It's a plan that will fill you with hope, love, peace, and activity. In fact, when Christ paid the penalty for sin on the cross, that gave Him the right to claim you as His own. As a result, you can experience His love and priceless salvation freely and fully without limit.


By the way that album includes all people: Nepalese, Brazilians', Nigerians', Yupiks', Germans', people of every nation, culture, background, gender, hair color, and foot size. In God's eyes all are equally "children of the King, should they choose the living God"!

Salvation? God cleans away all our sins and replaces them with His goodness. We don't have to be "good" for Him to accept us. Nevertheless, we must accept His promise and allow Him to clean out everything the enemy has left in us. Then we begin to experience the transforming power of His love. It's like a giant war: one side pulling us toward empty pleasure and destruction, and God urging us to accept His offer of peace and purpose.

Remember, Jesus has already won the war. He is victorious! We celebrate His victory in our lives when we participate in the Lord's Supper. This meal includes three symbols:

1. Foot washing (John 13:5 - which symbolizes our commitment to love others as Jesus loves us),
2. Bread ("This bread is my flesh," Jesus said, "which I will give for the life of the world," John 6:51, NIV), and
3. Wine or grape juice ("Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life." John 6:54, NIV)

Eternal Life

To help us understand how God can transform us into His children, Jesus modeled the process of baptism for us. Baptism symbolized dying to self and coming alive in Jesus. Full immersion baptism is important because by being fully buried beneath the water we symbolize that God's grace fully fills us with His new life for the future. Through baptism we are truly born again in Jesus.

Eternal life, peace, purpose, forgiveness, transforming grace, hope: Everything He promises is ours, because He's offering it and He's shown we can trust Him to do exactly as He promises. He who calls upon His name (by faith alone) is saved and His promised gifts are ours as part of the package, while becoming an active part of His family.

The Promise

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life (1 John 2:25).

And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God's promise to Abraham belongs to you (Galatians 3:29).

The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call (Acts 2:39).

Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it (Hebrews 4:1).

House of the Messiah Ministries ( was first envisioned in the fall of 1987.

Its Doctrinal Statement was noted then and remains to this day as follows:


We acknowledge and recognize ALL SCRIPTURE, The Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, with emphasis Rev 22:18-19 | Deut 4:2 | Prov 30:6, as GOD BREATHED, useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16), to all and for all ages, in the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST is the Son of God.

Born of the Virgin Mary (God in the Flesh), out of Spiritual Conception, as promised by God our Creator and Heavenly Father, was crucified, pronounced dead, buried, raised from the dead on the third day, as God promised, and whom, in this present day, and at this very moment, sits at the right hand of His (Our) Heavenly Father awaiting His glorious and triumphant return ... AMEN!

How & Why We Connect With The Living God

No matter what we believe, we can look around us, at home, work, on the news, and see that our world is falling apart at the seams, socially, spiritually, morally, ethically, materialistically, and with no indication of slowing down or how to resolve the problem.

Religion is often found at the forefront of issues, caught up in the dilemma of, what religion is the right one.

Your author embraces the thought, ‘Forget religion!’

There is no proof in religion, but there is abundant proof for divinity. Consider there are only two types of religion: 1/ Human Accomplishment (Man) and 2/ Divine Accomplishment (The Living God)

If you have ever pondered the idea about who or what to believe, what faith is or is not true and divine, from the overwhelming plethora of thoughts and perspectives available to us this day and age, this book {How & Why We Connect With The Living God}, removes all confusion with the use of an acronym “YOU ARE WORTH IT” and then targets the scripture, word for word that unfolds for us the ‘How’ and ‘Why’ we would and should give serious consideration for what comes next, after life as we know it comes to an end.

‘YOU ARE WORTH IT’ is broken down as follows:

Y/oke…we live and learn from the yoke of God
O/verseer…we live with the gift of an overseer
U/nity…we live in unity with all men

A/bstain…we live abstaining from all unrighteousness
R/epent…we live in righteousness through repentance
E/dify…we live to edify others of the grace and love of God

W/ork…we live, work and do all things as unto Him
O/bey…we live to obey honest correction and rebuke
R/ejoice…we live to rejoice in our freedom and peace of mind
T/ithe…we live to give (tithe) in furthering His absolute truth
H/umble…we live in humbleness at all times, void of pride

I/nheritance…we live in His inheritance, which is also ours
T/hanksgiving…we live to give thanks for all things in Christ’s name

You truly are worth it, and encouraged to add this brilliant ‘How’ & ‘Why’ approach to your library … for the reason of simplifying the clear distinction between human accomplishment (man) and divine accomplishment (God) … while discovering the absolute truth of Jesus Christ and His inerrant, infallible word found within the pages of The Holy Bible … all 31,173 verses worth.

Apples to Apples - the truth will set you free

The objective of this book is to spread the good news, the message of hope and love, in a way that people will take notice of both sides, as with the need for every story, and perhaps for the first time, become desirous for truth over fiction, falsehood and mythology that is running rampant in our ‘anything-goes’ culture.

There is much more at stake when we choose to believe in something. We must take eternity for example, more seriously. When we close our eyes for the last time what happens to us? Is there such a person and place as ’St. Peter at heavens pearly gates?’ – Or the ‘devil with the red face, two horns and a pitch fork?’ I’m being somewhat facetious here, but also very real.

All ‘religions,’ including Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, New Age, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism or Christianity, for example, proclaim, “We are the way.” So who’s right?

Is there more than one way to heaven?

Should we not justify these beliefs by considering the proof or factual evidence available in support of what is proclaimed as being true; are facts no longer relevant?

How do we know man is not the author of our belief system, or whether or not the text is God inspired?

Is there archaeological evidence in support of the books being referenced and professed as true?

Is there evidence in support of divinity, versus man playing god?

Should we be considering the definition of idolatry prior to placing our eternal soul and trust in something or someone?

Is there anything that separates the scriptural writings in which we believe to be true, from countless other faiths, such as how life began ... where the different languages and skin colors came from or perhaps information that only exists in our text long before man's discovery of said text?

Should logic and common sense be taken into consideration as we evaluate our faith of choice?

Should we for example place our trust in a faith that believes in all prophets, when all proclaimed prophets throughout history came delivering different messages? One Buddhist for example, not judging, claims we have a soul ... and another says we do not!

This book, 'APPLES TO APPLES - the truth will set you free,' is a side by side comparison of 12 faiths in which billions are placing their eternal trust. It is the author's humble opinion that no one can read this book and walk away without having a clear distinction between man playing god, and the divine God in action.

What do you believe? | Are you going to heaven when you die? | How do you know? | Do you care?

Perhaps it's worth a closer look, considering eternity is a very long time.
