I bought a bookstore over a year ago, and turned it from unprofitable to profitable. It wasn't quite profitable enough to pay my rent and utilities for home, but it was paying for itself and then some.
A few months ago I entered into contract, buying another bookstore; one that could potentially sustain our needs.
For a little while, yet, I have the first bookstore to pay rent toward. An expense I do not enjoy and want to be free from as soon as possible. God will take care of it.
Then there are personal issues, and these I will not detail; but I hope to write articles that will be a blessing to everyone who reads them, and will help you to walk with God.
I will tell you this, Satan is our adversary. He hates us who belong to God. He wants us to be defeated, he wants our lives in ruins. He can't make that happen, but he desires to have all of us that he may sift us as wheat. You remember what he did to Peter? Oh, but Jesus prayed for Peter! The devil didn't know what he was doing when he messed with Peter. When the storm clouds rolled away, Peter stood up on Pentecost and began the turning of the world upside down! The devil still hasn't learned after all these years. That old serpent with curse the day he laid his hands on me.

I just wanted to put these two messages on here for anyone who would like to listen to them.
First is a message preached shortly after a week of Revival. God touched and blessed us in the meeting, glory to his name! Also, if I remember correctly, this was preached the day after we brought my son home from the hospital, February 17, 2008.http://www.fileden.com/files/2010/2/26/2775915/5353%20Keeping%20Revival%20Alive.mp3
This is just a short message on the forgiveness of sin through the blood of Jesus Chirst.http://www.fileden.com/files/2010/2/26/2775915/5281%20My%20Sins%20are%20Gone.mp3

We are living in a day where many translations exist on the market for Christians to choose from. Many people have put forth arguements for and against various translations. Confusion abounds among the people of God, and the debate has been reduced in many places to emotional appeals, faulty comparisons, and ad hominem attacks. I preached this message in a Sunday School service at Faith Independent Baptist Church. I pray it will bless you.
