What Others are Saying about Raised Up:

“Hi, just a note to say thank you for your book, Raised Up…. I’ve been reading/studying it. It has helped me cope with my job and trying to understand why I am doing something I don’t want to do!” Keep writing, brother :)” Paula Adams

“I am on the 6th chapter of this book (Raised Up) and this are really good. I will also be ordering your book I Die Daily. Wow so much more than I incurred. This is so power-packed! I have to finish because this is awesome. A fully surrendered life is a life well lived in the death even as our Lord and Savior.” Carol B.

“Just finished your book Raised Up and am reading through I Die Daily. They are a real blessing. In fact, I will be using them as the basis for our home group study if you don’t mind. Blessings to you in his holy name.” Gavriel Smith

I Die Daily Cover upright smaller.jpg“I just wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the book Raised Up. It is very good. That is the message that should be echoing every church in the world. I have had a time with leaving myself in the tomb. I needed this book and thank you for your knowledge of the Truth. Thank You.” S.

“This book really highlighted for me the powerful Scriptural truth that ‘the only way up is down.’ We all want to be raised up by the LORD, but He only lifts up those who first humble themselves before Him. The message in this book stands in stark contrast to the flesh flattering messages found in so many other books, and I believe that is because Raised Up is true to the divine order of the Gospel: death, then burial, then resurrection. While deceiving voices point us to the pursuit of a positive self-image, wealth, and self-exalting earthly success, I believe this book points us in the right direction by teaching us to follow the Savior down His self-sacrificing path toward Calvary, and beyond.” M.

“This book will help you get into the flow of the essential daily cross and resurrection power of Christ. You will become addicted immediately and will never be the same. If you just want to be entertained and made to feel good and not be conformed to the image of the Son of God, then you will not want this book. This daily cross is what Jesus commanded for all who will truly follow Him and so it’s an absolute essential and dodging it like the vast majority of leaders do today will not profit your life. If you want a smooth ride into eternal damnation, just keep moving and go buy a seeker-friendly, cancerous book that will further delude your life. If you will truly follow Christ, you must engage in this daily cross He commanded. So, if you are an honest-hearted person, you will want to get this book and your life will never be the same as a result of reading it!”

More …We are already positionally “raised up” with Christ and seated together in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6) and yet, there is the daily raising up that is essential to fruit-bearing, overcoming, and victorious life in Christ (Romans 6). God’s aim is that His Son will be glorified to raise up His people, and yet He has set some conditions for that raising up – the individual disciple must take “root downward” in order to “bear fruit upward.” (Isa. 37:31) This is what daily personal participation in the cross of our LORD is, where we choose to follow Jesus by denying self and  losing our lives in order to gain them in Him both now and forever (Jn. 12:24-25). It’s only the bowed down remnant of Christ’s kingdom that He will raise up to fruitfulness. Living the “raised up” life consists of laying down flat before the LORD in utter humility before His holy Majesty – taking “root downward” so He can then cause you to “bear fruit upward.”Jesus taught us that only the seeds that fall into the ground and die are going to bring forth fruit unto eternal life for God’s eternal glory (Jn. 12:24). Our hearts and minds must be permeated with this truth that is central to the Gospel message. May God bless us to “receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save (y)our souls” as we take in, meditate upon, and obey our LORD’s message of the cross (James 1:21). This volume is design to do just that – impress and invest this message deep into the heart of the saint. The importance of dying daily cannot be over emphasized. The cross must be at the center of our lives. Jesus commanded it and we must honor Him by daily surrender, crying “LORD, not my will but Thine be done!” Find out more about this Christ-elevating, self-denying walk found throughout Scripture, be stimulated through the encouraging words of “Raised Up.” This essential biblical message of the daily cross is expressed in living color in this volume. Please consider adding this book to your personal library and perhaps giving a copy as a gift to a friend or family member. This volume will prove to be one of the most important books in your library due to the imperative nature of the message of the daily cross (Christ’s and yours). To have a copy is to be able to feed your spirit on this vital message on a regular basis.
