Delayed by Deceit addresses the current culture as it relates to the subtle attacks from Satan, our enemy. Jesus valued three aspects of an attitude that is right with God: faith, hope, and love. Of course, the devil wants to attack us on these three aspects through various niches of culture. This is not an 'end times' book; it is more of an 'awaking opportunity' that addresses what normally obscures the view of a person as they understand who Jesus is and what following Him is all about. The author of this book, Clair Westview (a surname) was led to write such a book since having received the unseen gift of what the Bible calls 'the discerning of spirits' according to 1 Corinthians 12: 7-11. This gift is not accepted since it is vastly misunderstood in the world-this blessing gives more evidence of the truth of Christ and the Bible He gave humankind. After being in the corporate business world of Finance/Accounting for over 12 years, the author was 'led out' or 'called' by Jesus into Christian service by writing about various topics of the unseen spiritual warfare of this world. While wanting not to be known by the public because of maintaining the integrity of the writing, the author, under the surname of Clair Westview, has been a Christian for over 21 years. The spiritual gift that is used to write was given in 2002. It is the desire of the author to follow Jesus and what He wants to have the author write about in regard to the real unseen spiritual battle we all are in.
