Tell us a little about yourself. I am a retired FBI agent and recipient of the Attorney General's Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement. I have a ministry of teaching on the Hebrew roots of Christianity and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was a Christian for twenty years and never heard of the baptism in the Holy Spirit. In my book, The Promise of The Father, I tell how I went from resentful skeptic to enthusiastic recipient of what Jesus called the promise of the Father. Many Christians know little about what Scripture says about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Many more have been turned off by wacky Pentecostals or soured by Cessationist doctrines. Based on my study of the Scriptures, I have come to believe that the promise of the Father is for today and it is something the Father wants all his children to have.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that by objectively studying what Scripture has to say about the promise of the Father, folks will realize that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is as Peter states, "... for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself." Acts 2:39 (NASB)
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I have been teaching on the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the Hebrew roots of Christianity for many years. Both subjects have been a fire in my bones. Addressing both topics in this book, has been a great joy.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Dennis Bennett, author of The Holy Spirit and You was the person who led me to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirt
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The promise of the Father is for today and for you. As the end of days approaches a break neck speed, the church needs to be clothed with power from on high through the baptism in the Holy Spirit more than ever.
