Description : Most people desire the Power, the anointing, the effectiveness that Jesus had but they seem really not to walk in it. As a result, they get frustrated and stop trying, and settle where they are, which is barely enough.

The book ties deep key truths necessary for the believer to become effective in doing the good works He created us for. The book will help you set your mind above, and walk in supernatural abilities that will will fascinate you. Your life is about to change in a way you have never imagined possible.
Description : In the first century, endemic food shortages left 25 percent of the population below subsistence level and another 30 percent at risk of slipping below subsistence. In the face of such serious food shortages, the Gospel of Matthew advocates for a society in which all people can have access to sufficient food. Matthew critiques first-century practices and attitudes of both aristocrats and peasants that helped or hindered that goal. It does this by depicting Jesus teaching and performing positive practices that provided the Matthean community with an example to emulate, as well as condemning some negative practices and attitudes. For I Was Hungry and You Gave Me Food provides a pragmatic lens and a new descriptive paradigm of food access in the first century. The perspective and model are useful for analyzing passages concerned with life-and-death issues of the Matthean community--or situations for any other Christian community, past or present. Should not every person have enough food to sustain physical life?
