God Of Abraham Isaac And Jacob And Me from the Author: M. D. DeVita. How do you begin a book about the God of the universe? Why would anyone even try? To those who believe in him there's no need for more printed matter to prove Him, and to those who don't believe, no amount of written material will convince them of who He is. For any who aren't sure, and who would like to believe, or need to believe in Him it's worth writing about His revelations to me. Of course He's told us who He is in His inspired Word, the Bible, but how do you begin to find what you need in a "book" that spans centuries? Since He is pure spirit, how can we begin to know Him and come to love Him? This was St. Augustine's famous question. "How do we love someone we don't know, and how do we get to know someone we don't love?" God does give us some understanding in the Bible. We are told that Jesus is His son, that Jesus is "in the Father" and the Father is "in Him." We are told that "He and the Father" are one and that when we have seen Jesus, we have seen the Father. Jesus tells us, that He will send His Spirit as a comforter and witness and we're told that when we are "saved, " His Spirit abides in us. We're told that when we are baptized by Jesus with His Holy Spirit we have a special unity with Him, and that we can be "led" by His Spirit, be "full" or "penetrated" by His Spirit, be "in the power" of His Spirit and "anointed" by His Spirit. We are also told that His sheep hear His voice. So it seems that if we are His sheep, and He is within us by His spirit, then we should hear His voice rising up from within us! I believe this and I believe I experience this on a regular basis. In this book I testify to you about the wonderful things He has said and done in my life. The word "testify" in the Bible comes from the Greek and literally translates to "give evidence." So this book, such as it is, is my testimony, the evidence I give about who my God is. It is not open to argument or debate because it is not a theological paper. It is something personal between God and me. I set it forth as a testimony of things God has done and said in my life. Many of these are spectacular, so some friends and other excited believers have told me I should share them with others, who may want to or need to hear them. I had my doubts about recording everything, but then God gave me the title of the book and the call to begin. I am a medical doctor, licensed and in good standing, and I claim to be a credible "evidence giver." The book consists of a series of narratives about personal supernatural experiences as well as some supernatural events involving others. There are stories of prophecies I have lived to see come to pass, and of prayers that have been answered involving others and myself. These are set forth in no special order; however, as much as possible, there is an intent to be chronological. Some testimonies are short; others are long. You may begin reading anywhere and skip about, as you like.

The God Of Abraham Isaac And Jacob from the Author: Steven F. Darsey. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob brings readers on a surprising journey from the dawn of divine-human communion to the present, showing how this mysterious, ongoing relationship holds the keys to true worship. Laying a new foundation for understanding worship, the book makes a compelling case for distinguishing the church's practices from those of the world. Recognizing the holiness of worship, the author observes that music itself, apart from language, conveys its own theological meaning; that, similar to Scripture, there is an evolving canon of sacred music; and that, to mitigate idolatry, the spirit of worship must be tested to ensure that it addresses the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When this timeless liturgical journey with God is honored with vital commitment, worship will be compelling and transfiguring to all people, at all levels of religious experience.
