Have you ever believed God had made you sick to teach you a lesson? Do you believe God wants some to be sick but others to be well for a divine purpose known only to himself? Have you struggled with a healing in your body or spirit but it seemed as though God just doesn't want to answer your prayers for healing? Do you believe you've got a thorn in the flesh that God is using to refine your character? These are lies. This quick read will help destroy the traditions of man and lies of religion that nullify the power of God in your life.

Many Christians believe lies about God that keep them bound and prevent healing in their bodies and in their lives. In his conversational style, Steve helps you learn what some of the top lies are that hold Christians and unbelievers back when it comes to divine healing. You, too, can receive healing and heal the sick. Quit believing lies today. God is not just "able" to heal, he is willing! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Bremner.

For a group of scientists, their Christian faith is put to the ultimate test: going back in time to find the true meaning of faith in Christ. For Dr. Graham Parker, his journey takes him back to the crucifixion. For his assistant Raj, his journey is the beginning of time itself. All Christians have come to a crossroads in their faith.Though this is a science fiction-based story, the lesson in faith is still the same. We must look no further than our own hearts according to God’s word. The characters in this story use outlandish fictional means to search for a deeper understanding of faith. In the real world, we often search for the meaning of faith in our pastor, church members, or a mate. The reality is that we must look no further than the scriptures. It is there hidden in plain sight from yesterday, the past, and ages to come. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1, KJV) 1.

Learn the whole truth about the Holy Spirit. It&#8217;s not a bad thing for Christians to respond to the Holy Spirit with wide-eyed wonder. Certainly, the Holy Spirit should inspire our awe and admiration. Unfortunately, for many believers these feelings of wonder come about as a result of puzzlement instead of adoration. But the truth of the matter is that the role of the Holy Spirit does not have to be a mystery in our lives and we will miss out greatly on God&#8217;s power if we choose to ignore Him. In Relying on the Holy Spirit, Charles F. Stanley cuts through the confusion and introduces us to a living Person as real and active as God the Father and Christ the Son. We can know what God&#8217;s Word says about who the Spirit is&#8211;and how to develop a relationship with Him. The Charles F. Stanley Bible Study Series is a unique approach to Bible study, incorporating biblical truth, personal insights, emotional responses, and a call to action. Each study draws on Dr. Stanley&#8217;s many years of teaching the guiding principles found in God&#8217;s Word, showing how we can apply them in practical ways to every situation we face.
