A book that I did not know I am writing, it just happened. Based on positive Facebook postings that I did for the last three years, adding each entry to a word document, mainly for spelling checks; I was encouraged by the Holy Spirit to publish it as revelations to an average person (Lay person). A testimonial, fully inspired by the Spirit of the Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

A devotional book, full of encouragement and very positive, with two different entries per day, as perceived by an ordinary man, with no theological training, no writers training, not in my mother tongue. Inspired by my new found relationship with Jesus Christ, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the inborn purpose God created me for. Being in the dessert for far to long, chasing my own pleasure at all cost, I asked God one morning what it is He wants me to do. I opened my Bible for the first time in a very long while and there it was; (1Co 14:26) So here's what I want you to do. When you gather for worship, each one of you be prepared with something that will be useful for all: Sing a hymn, teach a lesson, tell a story, lead a prayer, provide an insight.
It was so simple, there is nothing special you must do, you are the church, the body of Christ, 24/7, you need to gather as a congregation to praise and worship you creator, who knew you before you were born, you yourself, one of His miracles. Audibly He spoke to me for the first time in my life and he said to me "By the way, I want you to be baptized for My sake". I was baptized the very next day in the middle of winter, in rain in an ice cold swimming pool, in the name of the Father, His son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of truth.
My life changed, I now have an unfair advantage, I have God in my corner.
