The lies of homosexuality dissipate because a life of purity in Christ Jesus decidedly removes the homosexual deception. Each step toward Jesus brings us closer to His image, and we are changed. We emerge free to be exactly whom Father God created us to be. Leaving all secrets with honesty and transparency before God and man, forgiving ourselves and all abusers, we emerge in our true identity with a heterosexual desire. This desire for the opposite sex is as natural as apple pie. Leaving the judgments, the facades, the sins, and all idols, the stark truth remains. Our true identity is found in Jesus Christ alone.

It is a book about hope for terminal illness that comes from the power that is higher than everything.It brings people closer to God,to be able to communicate in trust with him in everything. It takes away humiliation of death that comes from terminal illness; it brings hope to those who have lost it because of troubles. It will bring healing, mend brokenness, and bring wholeness in families and it helps people to be able to give glory to God because of his mighty deeds. It teaches that praising God as our protector pleases him and he continues to pour out his favour and revelation upon us. It teaches the importance of righteousness, faith and love in humanity. "God touched me, healed me, and made me whole again." God extends his mercy in our lives and call us for his Kingdom, to be his vessels of his glory and honour. When we are weak, he becomes stronger. Readers will take heart and be comforted and assured about God's love. It helps us to combat Spiritual Warfares and teaches how to put on the full armour of God. Our truthful God cares and never tires in our lives. It is all about God's divine purpose in our lives. God is real, he moves and is aware of the struggles of this world. There is hope for terminal illness and that hope is anchored on the Cross, on the power of the blood of Jesus that purchased us. Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."


God’s Means of Effecting Man’s Reconciliation

Theologians are constantly accused of only speaking in theories, positing arguments to be considered by the mind with little bearing on the practicalities of life. This view is both blinkered and generally unjust, but it is also the case that some fit that description without perhaps realizing it. Chris Woodall argues that doctrine is not only a compelling tool but also a critical one, without which we would struggle to understand God's purpose or our place in it. The atonement is not a subject that lends itself easily to being considered from a merely philosophical perspective. After all, how could you possibly present the atonement as being necessary, real, and beneficial without that presentation impinging on its practical application? In this book, Woodall seeks to treat the subject matter as a valid hermeneutic by which our understanding of the whole of Scripture may be greatly enhanced. Thus, the concept of the atonement must be seen as both a continuous thread in the Bible and a key to unlocking some of its secrets.
