We were in the land of the cheeseheads last month.
Terri and I are doing very well, by the grace of God! We are presently in Knoxville where we just finished up in their Bible conference and youth meeting. Both were a great blessing and a privilege to be a part of.
Four of my books are now fully published and I am planning on getting two more finished in the next month. It is amazing the spiritual opposition that takes place when publishing a book! I know I am repeating myself from last entry, please forgive me.
After leaving Madison Baptist Church we pulled into Bible Baptist Church, Reedsburg WI. They had but recently poured a new slab of concrete that had been beautifully finished off. As I pulled into the parking lot my RV wheels locked up with broken brakes and I dragged the RV onto the cement pad putting dually black skid marks right across the new cement. Well…Pastor Weiss, it is broke in now!
I want to say thank you so much to Bro. Dan who labored and repaired the brakes on the RV!
Got to go for now. Jesus may come today. Wouldn't that be great!!! And, no, the dead in Christ will not be walking around for 40 days and nights before the rapture. Don't let anyone steal your blessed hope!
Just a quick update. Had a great meeting with Pastor Mike Weiss in Madison, WI. Will be in Reedsburg, WI Saturday and Sunday with Pastor Fred Weiss. Yes, they are brothers physically and spiritually. The whole family has an amazing testimony!
Terri and I are doing well.
Two books just about ready to be fully published. Praise the Lord! Jesus, Talk to Me is being republished so as to be correctly formatted for epub and Kindle books. And then my newest book, Even As God is about ready. I should receive the mss from the pre-publisher today or tomorrow and then the process of uploading to the various venues will begin.
I have been pushing myself to get Good Vibrations ready for the pre-publishing examination. It is a re-worked version of my book on the voice exercises to restore a persons voice, or for someone who just wants to strengthen their voice. I am very excited about getting this book published.
I will then have two more, one of which is Pursuit and the other is Defiled. I may add information in Defiled on Aromatherapy as well as Reflexology and therapeutic Message, all three of which are spirit based medicine practices that grieve the Holy Ghost.
The publishing of these books has been a battle. But by the grace of God we are making progress, especially when we pray. Without prayer we just spin our wheels and get nowhere. How do I know that? Because I have tried to go in my strength and I get no where. At times I even end up losing ground if I don't pray.
Well, I started out to write a brief note, but it has grown to be a little more than that. It is so good to be saved and washed in the blood of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Most High God, He is the King of the Universe, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father one day, and the Lord Jesus Christ is my Saviour, My God who dwells in my body right now! Glory to God!!!
Lately I have been concentrating on publishing and finishing the seven books that I have written. Each book is in a various stage of publishing. While some are offered on Amazon, yet there are other venues that the books need to be published upon. Each venue has it's own quirks.
I have been trying to publish to epub, which is the main ebook version that is used on iBooks and others. Upon submitting the file to a place called lighthouse24.com in order for them to check it I found out that I am not even close to having the manuscript ready to be uploaded in that format. I thought it was decent, but there are a number of legalities that I did not know about that could cause me a lot of trouble. Not with what I wrote, but with fonts that I used. This is frustrating as I have spent a good number of days trying to get it ready.
I am thankful for lighthouse24.com and their help in publishing books. There are fees associated with their services, but I am realizing that I cannot do it all. The fees are looking more reasonable, which will free me up to concentrate on the writing, type setting, and editing after the proof reading. Yes, a lot of work goes into the publishing of a book!
In this age there is the print version of a book with Amazon.com. Then there is another print version for distribution through Ingram Spark. Then there is the Kindle version, the epub version, the Barnes and Nobles version, and a couple others as well. I have read that each of these different formats should have their own ISBN number. And then if you want to print a book in hard back it requires its own ISBN number as well. So the publishing of one book could take as many as seven ISBN numbers.
With seven books I am looking at up to 49 ISBN numbers, though I am not planning hard back versions at this time. Thank the Lord for a man who purchased a block of 100 ISBN numbers for us as they are not cheap!
At this time all seven books are written, but there is some editing still to be done on a few of the manuscripts. The seven books are:
2. HERE COMES THE BRIDE
4. JESUS, TALK TO ME
5. GOOD VIBRATIONS - VOICE
6. DEALING WITH BAD IN-LAWS
7. EVEN AS GOD
If the Lord brings it to mind, would you please pray for me and the publishing of these books. I am getting requests for some of them and people are waiting for the publishing of them.
There are some other books in the works but have a long way to go.
1. AROMATHERAPY AND THE BIBLE
2. THE SONS OF ZADOK - I have had requests for this and it will be quite a book on the millennium and what a Christian will do for one thousand years.
As for some public domain old books we would like to publish: STEPPING HEAVENWARD by Elizabeth Prentice and do it in proper quality and with original black and white charcoal sketches from the 1879 edition. This would be done in hard back.
Another public domain book that I personally would like to publish is Foxes Book of Martyrs. It is available on amazon.com but I would, Lord willing, like to do a good quality hard copy version. I have the manuscript.
God bless, and thank you for your prayers.
Below is written in the spirit and memory of Alex Dunlap, founder of The Conversion Center. He wrote little tracts like, Ten Reasons why I smoke, and Ten Reasons why I cuss, and Ten Reasons Why I am not a Roman Catholic - PANT 5/01 - Folder - Anti-Catholicism n.d. - 19 down
10 Reasons Why I Follow Satan
1. I like losers
2. I enjoy a good hot fire
3. I always wanted to become a worm
4. Because Satan is so good to me by giving me drugs, booze, a broken home, crippling diseases and a destroyed life
5. Because I hate light and sunshine
6. I enjoy weeping more than joy and happiness
7. I like being alone and having no one who loves me
8. I love the smell of rotten eggs
9. I want eternal death and agony instead of eternal peace and rest
10. So I can grind my teethe
Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Rom. 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Finally!!! My latest book is now available. The second in the sermon in a book series titled, Dealing With Bad In-Laws. Yes, you read that right. $8.95 at Amazon, 115 pages.
It is also listed in the store page with a brief description.
Arizona Sunset a couple weeks ago.
My Cambridge Bible after only 12 times through. Do I have it rebound or do I buy a new one? Cost is almost the same either way. I am very frustrated with Cambridge as I have returned two bible over the years for bad bindings. They gave me a free bible each time but I wish they would last longer. I don’t want an Oxford and after seeing how many typos there are in my LCBP King James Dedicatory, I have gone back to my Cambridge.
I am leaning on sending it to Norris book binding in MS.
Just a quick note that I am switching to another web hosting service. Hopefully it will go smooth and this website will not be off line. Still working on books and web sites trying to get it all together as quick as possible. When in meetings this work is next to impossible to get done so am working on it while I can.
We are in Indiana having maintenance repairs done on our RV. All has gone very well.
I have not said much about it but I have been very busy trying to finish the publishing of two of my latest books. They are books two and three of the series, Sermon in a Book. Volume two is titled Dealing With Bad In-Laws, and Volume three is Titled, Even As God which deals with restoring relationships Biblically.
It is amazing the spiritual opposition that takes place when writing books and producing music. Lord willing, today I should finish type setting Even As God as well as Dealing With Bad In-Laws. I am running out of time here in AZ as we will leave next week for Indiana for maintenance repairs to the RV and then on to meetings.
After these two books are published then I intend on republishing my book on voice exercises and have changed the title to “Good Vibrations.” Then there are a couple of public domain books that I would like to publish.
It has been good to park here in AZ, stay warm, and work on these projects. The Lord has given assurance and has blessed as we have worked on these projects.
Just thought that I would give an update.
A servant of the Lord Jesus Christ,
WARNING: There are Bible Believers who are recommending the Homeopathic HCG diet! Pragmatism is not the test for using this but the word of God is! Since there is not one single physical molecule of HCG in the drops you put under your tongue then what is it that is having an effect on your appetite? It is spirit, aka energy as in Ki or Prana, and no it is not man’s spirit or the Holy Spirit! It is an occult metaphysical spirit that a born again child of God has no business partaking of! If you have been using the HCG diet then you need to repent. For more information see my articles on Homeopathy at curiousarts.org. Or better yet, CHECK OUT HOMEOPATHY FOR YOURSELF!!!
