EXTREMELY INTERESTING BOOK!
“I had borrowed this book from a friend before I went and purchased my own copy and I just had to write this review. I love how the author combined the two stories: That was fantastic. The book was detailed and the characters well developed. Real Illusions was really captivating and keeps you wondering what’s going to happen next. This is obviously a real author with real talent and I can’t wait for Real Illusions 2! I would urge the author to see how fast she can publish the next one because this novel/series is a winner.”

Synopsis: REAL ILLUSIONS

The mansion in the woods holds chilling secrets that have sauntered down throughout the generations. Trent Matheson, a victim of a brutal past he had absolutely nothing to do with is afraid of what lies within him. Struggling to live an ordinary life, he finds that the control he once possessed is slowly slipping away. The money, the power, the newly-found love… cannot subdue what is inherently a part of him. He is entering ‘The Season’ where he will be forced to face the essence of who he is in a fight for his very life.

Real Illusions offers a remarkable edge where two storylines are intricately intertwined. It’s as if the reader is getting two books in one. No one can guess the ending… no one.

God can do extraordinary things through ordinary people like you and me.

Maneuvering through this life…

Each one of us are on a special journey. This life is made up of so many roads, mountains, twists, turns, barriers, obstacles, and if we maneuver correctly, we will ultimately arrive at our intended destination. When we see an obstacle in the road of life, if we just keep standing behind it, will it move? Absolutely not! We must apply some form of pressure to somehow get it out of our way so that we can continue travelling onward. Sometimes though, the obstacles are too big and we cannot push them alone. We need help.

If you feel you are facing an obstacle today and perhaps, you looked at this issue for months or even years, I want you to know that you have what it takes to clear the road. You may not feel strong, but What lives inside of you has more power than you can imagine. It’s that all-powerful Force within that can not only remove the obstacle, but can also crush it into a million pieces so that that particular obstacle will not form again.  

Learn what it takes to successfully and victoriously maneuver throughout this journey. This will inspire even those who cannot see a flicker of hope left.  .

Why Are We Fighting Against Each Other?

What I’m about to write here today is something that I believe all of us, as Christians, need to hear. God is truly disappointed in the way that we have failed to unite as a single body. When I was growing up, my father was Catholic and my mother was Methodist – they still are. We never attended the Catholic church to my recollection as my mother’s church was where we often went. My father was not really a church-goer although He believed in God. Although I attended the Methodist church while young, my siblings and I were christened in the Catholic church. However, when I became an adult, I went under the ‘non-denominational umbrella’ as I didn’t like the thought of being separated by denomination.

Now twenty years later, after going under that non-denominational umbrella, I was recently instructed by God to document certain things in a book entitled, Seeing Beyond the Natural, Student: Me … Professor: God. I would say that some things recorded in that book would not sit well with many ‘churchy’ – people who are led by ‘religion’ instead of by The Holy Spirit. Although, I am not Catholic, I was given a real-life revelation concerning purgatory or what one might call “The Mysterious Realm”. This is by no means what the book is about. Rather, it documents wonderful testimonies of miraculous healings, supernatural experiences, victories and insight that would inspire anyone whose heart is truly turned towards God – in spite of denominational boundaries. However, I realize that it may be classified in the minds of some as ‘controversial’. I would think that some die-hard supporters of certain denominations would not be happy with my findings pertaining to purgatory or whatever one might want to call it and therefore, not want to accept what God has clearly shown me as truth.  I anticipate that certain pastors might want to keep this literature from the grasp of their congregation mainly because if the truth be told, it would knock down the walls of denomination and they would have to face the fact that what they have been teaching may not be the whole truth when it comes to spiritual matters and they may feel as if another denomination will be highlighted as being correct to a certain degree. Thus… the separation I mentioned at the first part of this blog.

In spite of all the different denominations, we must know that Jesus never intended for us to be at odds with one another thinking that we have all the answers thereby putting on an air of arrogance toward everyone else. If we call ourselves Christians, we should always want to support each other in the work of our Lord putting aside mere traditions for the time being. It is reported that Padre Pio once said that Jesus appeared to Him and said that “My house has become a theatre of plays…”. Obviously fighting against each other and separating the body of Christ by denominations and tradition is not the way Christianity at its core truly is. What I have found over the years is that unfortunately, many pastors have ‘brain-washed’ people into believing that because they are of a particular denomination, they should not associate with others of a different denomination or even visit their church. The body of Christ has become too ‘churchy’ and full of tradition and theatrical plays that the average church-goer tends to be more into their pastor and the ‘idea of church’ than yearning and desiring a real meaningful relationship with God. Even before going to Calvary and giving His life for all of us to be saved, Jesus knew that there would be many leading His flock who would deceive His flock. People, I encourage you to get to know God for yourself. Sure, go to church, show your pastor honor and the utmost respect as he is your spiritual leader. However, you must bear in mind that your salvation is not totally dependent upon him by any means. He, too, is human and is inclined to make mistakes and sometimes he may teach simply what he has been taught by tradition, but your responsibility is to study the Bible and seek God for yourself because on that day when you have breathed your last breath, your pastor or spiritual leader will not be the judge of your soul. Neither do they have a heaven or hell to put you in. He will also have to answer for himself and if he didn’t get it right or deliberately misled you as part of the flock, he will be judged for that. You will be judged for the fact that you had the knowledge, which is the Word of God there for you to explore and study for the enrichment of your own soul and God was always available to you in prayer for guidance, among other things. You will not be able to cast blame on anyone that may have misled you particularly when you had the knowledge to search the truth for yourself.

The Holy Spirit takes residence inside all that are saved. The anointing power of God intensifies within us and through us the more we desire to know Him intimately – apart from our attending church and partaking in traditional ceremonies. When we can sit alone and yearn for God to direct us and draw nearer to us, we are being connected to Him in a deeper way. True lovers of God are not religious people. They are people who have a real relationship with God in a way that causes them to stand out from the crowd. People can sense when there is a strong anointing upon someone’s life – both saved and unsaved people can sense it. They may not always be able to put their finger on exactly what they’re sensing but they know that there’s something about that person that is remarkably different and in a good way. This is what we all should aim for as Christians – to truly be a light unto the world. How can we be that way if we constantly fight against each other and fail to support one another in the advancement of the kingdom? God is not pleased by this and whether we want to believe it or not, the fire in hell burns much hotter for those that profess Christianity and totally rejected the Ways, the Awesomeness and Reality of God – than those who never professed it.

I pray that those of us who are guilty of playing with God would take a long, hard look at ourselves. Examine our hearts and our motives and get it right in the sight of God. None of us are perfect – we all make mistakes, but God is looking at our hearts. He will judge us by the state of our hearts. I pray that we will unify as followers of Christ and make Him our top priority – above all others. All denominations should recognize that we are all one body – no single denomination has it completely right. Therefore, we should be willing to communicate with one another in order to learn from one another. The Holy Spirit, if He is truly within that person, will guide him in the truth. He will not be persuaded by mother, father, pastor, deacon, or tradition – he will be persuaded by the Holy Spirit. The separation within the body of Christ merely because of tradition benefits the kingdom of darkness more than it does the Kingdom of Heaven. God is not pleased.

My 40 Day Spiritual Fast – the best 40 days of my life!

I have integrated the “discipline” of fasting into my life for many years now and believe wholeheartedly in its power to produce incredible results. When we fast for spiritual reasons, we are humbling ourselves before God and demonstrating that we recognize we are nothing without Him and can do nothing without Him. We are displaying our dependence upon Him in every way and amid the situations we face. Chapter 21 of my book: Seeing Beyond the Natural, Student: Me … Professor: God gives much insight into this discipline and how it can greatly benefit every believer.

Here’s an excerpt:

There are some circumstances in life that command a “take the bull by the horn” sort of approach in order to break down giant obstacles and barriers of delay. The discipline of fasting doesn’t appear to be something that is regularly taught in Christian churches these days, yet it is one of the most life-altering, powerful practices that a believer can undertake.

About a year ago, the Lord instructed me to go on a 40 day fast (absolutely no food – just liquid). Before then, the longest I had ever fasted was ten days. At first, this was a scary thought for me (I was hoping I would survive – I mean really survive!), but I was aware that God always gives us the grace and fortitude we need to do what He directs us to do.

I embarked upon the journey and as the days and weeks passed, and the physical changes took place within my body, what was most remarkable was the spiritual changes. I felt God sustaining me through it all and our bond was becoming even stronger. He gave me clear instructions during that period that had to do with certain situations in my life and I watched the most amazing things occur that didn’t make any sense in the natural. God showed Himself strong and He left my family and me totally in awe. Toward the end of my 40 day fast, I started to feel sad that it was soon coming to an end. It was a serious physical sacrifice, but it was the best 40 days of my life. I had a remarkable time with God that I cannot describe in words and I witnessed barrier after barrier and stronghold after stronghold BROKEN! Most importantly, the extremely close relationship I already had with my awesome Creator became even closer. My spiritual eyes were open to see even more amazing things and I know I am still reaping the rewards of my intense sacrifice.

Not everyone will be led to such extreme fasting, but all spiritual fasting is honored by God. I received breakthroughs in shorter time-spans of fasting, but God always has specific reasons when He leads us to fast for certain periods of time. As I note in my book, allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. If you listen well enough, you will hear Him. He will speak into your spirit.

Fasting & prayer are two very powerful weapons that produce amazing results. I am convinced that if you want something bad enough, you’ll do whatever it takes to achieve it – even if it means denying yourself and humbling yourself before your Creator in accordance to His will.

Be blessed by real-life miracles, supernatural experiences, miraculous healings & financial breakthroughs documented in Seeing Beyond the Natural, Student: Me … Professor: God (we call it God’s book). Also, get the insight that God has personally taught me that is bound to change your life forever. Read the reviews all over our Facebook page and see how lives were changed in various ways.

God bless you & be encouraged in your life’s journey.

Excerpt from ‘Seeing Beyond the Natural, Student: Me… Professor: God’

“I was being pulled from my bed as if under the waves of the sea into a place that was gray and gloomy in appearance. It reminds me of a really overcast sky. I found myself in a building that I was unfamiliar with. This place had several small rooms and as I walked through (although I couldn’t feel myself walking), I noticed how almost colorless the whole scene, including all the rooms and everything inside the building was – just gray as far as I could see and everywhere I looked. The immediate feeling I got was one of loneliness. I felt completely, utterly alone and a shadow of uncertainty followed me everywhere I went. I didn’t understand why I was there – all I knew was that I wish I wasn’t and I yearned to be around my loved ones again. In this state, I wasn’t sure if I were dead. I thought I must be, yet I felt very much alive.”
