Tell us a little about yourself. I am the father of three wonderful adult children and the husband of one wife. I cut my teeth in ministering to others by teaching in the Women's Detention Center of the Baltimore City Jail at the age of 16 and have been teaching since then. That led me to preaching in church, the Maryland State Penitentiary, the House of Corrections in Jessup Maryland and now at the Jessup Correctional Institution. I have been an Elder of the church since 1978, an Overseer of a Company of believers for five years and a warrior against the kingdom of the enemy since 1975 when true conversion took place.
What was your motivation behind this project? As I state in the book, I was told to write by GOD, given a title by GOD and then given the direction to go to lead others to HIM. HE showed me how to take a problem we all suffer with and how the enemy uses it to his advantage in keeping us away from the truths GOD has given us in HIS Word. The knowledge that CHRIST is soon to return gave me the urgency to write, my desire that souls be saved into HIS Kingdom and my desire to be obedient to the will of GOD were my motivating factors.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? It is my prayer that those who read will be drawn closer to GOD; question some of the lies they have been told by others, themselves or the enemy of their souls. I desire the eyes of the children of GOD be opened to see this life we live is truly a war between GOD and the evil one who was kicked out of heaven. I hope that the deceptions of the enemy be revealed and sincere believers will walk away from them and live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of GOD.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My shortcomings were brought to the forefront and my struggle has increased because I still suffer with solo power issues. As I deal with sickness in my body the enemy turned up the heat trying to make me immobile, however I serve an awesome GOD who when at the right time said to the enemy enough, it didnt make a difference. HE went on to tell him, as imperfect as he is, he still serves ME and while leaning on a staff HE still preaches MY Word.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The greatest influence and source of inspiration is my mom who taught each of her six children of the love of JESUS CHRIST. Her assignments of learning the Scripture, ready the Bible and taking us to church are precious memories. It is her adherence to the Word of GOD that has us all in church today. My favorite author would have to be HOLY SPIRIT and I still find unthought-of truths as I read and re-read HIS 66 letters to a world on the brink of destruction.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Be like those in the church of Berea who searched the Scriptures daily to see if what was being taught or preached was not from man but from GOD. Always use the comparative method on any subject in the Word knowing that GOD does not change nor does HIS message to us. If there appears to be contradiction it is us and not HIM.
