There are many devotional books available containing brief, daily inspirations that benefit all who read them. This book is different in two respects. The first is obvious: it contains two readings per day—732 in all. The second, more important difference is that the author wanted to do more than offer inspiration; this would make this book no different than so many others. The messages in the book are study sketches in that the content is not only inspirational, but also educational, challenging, and encouraging. Most of these writings were based on author Michael J. Akers’s teaching of adult Bible studies for more than thirty years and learning what really brought adults to want to deepen their knowledge and application of the Word of God.
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High (Dan. 7:25) Satan is a slanderer who has deceived men into falsely blaming God for his own works. Sadly, the majority of Christians have bought into his deceptions and denigrate God’s character in their sermons and Bible studies. In this study we will examine several areas in which God is always getting the blame, even from His own children, and show the reader that Scripture actually points to Satan as the culprit. Once we have learned this truth then we will learn how to walk in victory over all satanic circumstances.
Almighty God, Christ of the last days, has expressed a variety of truths, uncovered every truth and mystery in the Bible, and revealed to mankind the inside story of the three stages of God’s work, the mystery of God becoming flesh and God’s work of judgment in the last days, etc. This testifies that Almighty God is the return of the Lord Jesus and that He is the appearance of God in the last days.
The present volume is devoted to religious and philosophical concepts in relation to divine parenthood on the basis of biblical tradition, its reception, and ancient context. Extending from classical to late antiquity, the articles focus on the designation of God as "Father".

Jesus Christ came into this world to bring God’s influence into man’s situations and circumstances, so that man may regain his God-given ability (dominion) which was once lost in the Garden of Eden. I believe the letter ’g’ in the word ‘grace’ stands for God. When you remove that letter ‘g’ then what you will have is ‘race’. Running the race of life without God can be frustrating; it is a life of hardship. Jesus therefore came to pave way for man to combine divinity with humanity in order to conquer satan and the world system. We live under grace dispensation, but not all Christians enjoy the grace of God. This book therefore teaches us the basic steps, attitudes, characters and decisions we must take in order to bring to manifestation the grace of God that is already placed upon our lives through redemption. The word of God says; “Arise, shine, for thy light is come ...” (Isaiah 60:1). The light is there, but it will not shine without an input from you, if the light must shine, then you must arise. In the same vein, grace to become all that God programmed you to become in life is upon your life, but there are some practical steps you will need to take that will automatically set grace at work in your life.
In Finding All Things In God, Hans Gustafson proposes pansacramentalism as holding the potential to find the divine in all things and all things in the divine. Such a proposition carries significant interreligious implications, particularly in the practice of theology. Presupposing theological practice as divorced from spirituality (lived religious experience), Gustafson presents pansacramentalism as a bridge between the two. In so doing, Gustafson offers a history of spirituality, sketching the foundations of a classical approach to sacramentality (through Aquinas) as well as a contemporary approach to the same (through Rahner and Chauvet). Through three fascinating case studies, this book presents particular instances of sacramentality in lived religious experience. Gustafson offers an exciting method of 'doing theology', one which is entirely compatible with the interdisciplinary field of interreligious studies.
