This second edition adds about forty six pages to the first one and brings interesting declarations like, ‘Victory over the Edomite or Fainting Spirit, Prayers against Tongues of Backbiters, Gossips and Evil Spirits,’ etc. Prayer is the art and act of communicating with God. It is our link with heaven and the realms of the spirit. It is the power source of any human being who desires to succeed God’s way. Prayer is our most important Christian duty after righteousness. It is an art because we have to engage in it according to biblical principles. It is an act because prayer cannot be totally delegated but be embarked upon daily and incessantly for individual victory. Communication with our bridegroom becomes a necessity for meaningful relationship. Prayer is the life giving breath of a modern day Christian. God does not do anything without speaking forth and this is the ministry of the prophet. John reveals that, ‘in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God (John1:1-3). God created the universe by spoken word. In the Hebrew language a word represents the very thing spoken because God created all things by His word. The word therefore defines the reality of the object. In the Hebrew the word for object devarim or dawbar is the same used for ‘word’ because a word does not just represent size, colour, shape but the very spiritual essence since it was the word that brought it into existence. God made Adam to name all the animals He created because Adam had the ability to speak like God and become co-creative by the spoken word. Speaking should be backed up with faith and that’s the reason why the spoken word is referred to as the spirit of faith. Our words are not supposed to be empty or void of power. God says, ‘so shall my words be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it.’ (Isaiah 55:11).

In Christ and the Decree, one of the foremost scholars of Calvinism today expounds the doctrines of Christ and predestination as they were developed by Calvin, Bullinger, Musculus, Vermigli, Beza, Ursinus, Zanchi, Polanus, and Perkins. Muller analyzes the relationship of these two doctrines to each other and to the soteriological structure of the system. Back by demand, this seminal work on the relationship between Calvin and the Calvinists is once again available with a new contextualizing preface by the author. It offers a succinct introduction to the early development of Calvinism/Reformation thought.

What if you were given written prayers specifically worded by God just for you to help perfectly manifest guidance, protection and healing for you and your family now, in the past and the future? What if these prayers already carried God's approval, promise, and power to expand your awareness, cleanse the governments and religions, calm the storms, feed the hungry and transform the environment? Wouldn't you want to be part of that and say those prayers? That is what the Divine Decrees are and more! The Divine Decrees are what God has blessed the children of man with to assist them in this crucial time of shifting into the timelessness of God's Love. People of all faiths in all parts of the world know this time we are living in is a very critical time - and indeed it is. God knows how many are suffering, and has shown numerous times in the scriptures that it is through the spoken word that the power of transformation can take place. God has now given his children additional ways to become stronger and interact with him and the Holy Angels. These are the words of God, shared with you to give you additional protection and assist you in your choosing of Love over fear, and in helping manifest these changes and transform the world.

aThe ultimate end in a decree, [is] the shining forth of Godas glory, and the communication of his goodness must indeed be considered as prior, in the consideration of the Supreme Disposer, to everything.a Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely held as perhaps the greatest American preacher and writer. In his sermons he had the amazing ability to combine the best of both worldsarich, deep theology and intense, practical implications. In his writings he shines as one who leads people to climb summits of thought and worship where few have gone. His God-centered direction in teaching is much needed today. His God-centered view of the Glory of God and Jesus Christ is more relevant than most understand.
