I am excited to share with you a truly incredible resource that I have the honor of “hosting” on this blog. First, let me give you a little background as to how this came about…
Last year, the most viewed and also the most commented on of all posts and pages published in 2013 was the page, “The Headship of Christ in the Gathering of the Church“. This is very encouraging for it shows there is a growing hunger in the Body of Christ to explore what it means to meet and function together under the practical headship of Jesus Christ. One of the comments on this page was from Gospel Fellowships. They commented briefly on the teaching and then said that they had a free ebook on the same subject, Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ, and left a link to the website.
I didn’t reply to the comment right away as I wanted to first check out the resource they were offering to know whether I should commend it to my readers as well. Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect. So I went to their site, then to Amazon, downloaded the Kindle edition, and began reading. A few days later I replied to their comment, and after explaining my delay in responding, I said the following:
“I have now downloaded the free Kindle version and am about 1/4 of the way through it. I have been so richly blessed, stirred and encouraged by it that I have ordered three physical copies. May I say, it may just be the best book on the Church that I have ever read! I want to HIGHLY recommend it to those who read this blog. May it find wide circulation in the Body of Christ in this hour. I believe it is a prophetic gift and a strategic manual for the Church in the last days!”
I received a gracious and humble reply back from them …and then I kept on reading the book with increased blessing, confirmation and conviction in my heart. (Since then I have also listened to the audio book through, which is wonderfully done!)
This is truly an extraordinary work which resonates deeply with my heart, and, more importantly, I believe, with the heart of God for His Church. I will share more about it on the page I will link you to shortly, but first let me finish the background to my hosting of it here.
A number of months ago, I contacted Gospel Fellowships to let them know I wanted to promote the “Principles Book” to my followers in a post. They were very gracious in their reply, and then made an extraordinary offer. They invited me to host the entire PDF and mp3 versions of the book, fully downloaded, on my blog! I was blown away!
As I thought about the practical aspects of this, I felt the best way to do this was to reproduce the download page for the book from their website, with their permission. This way, all of the PDF and mp3 (audiobook) links would be right there to access, along with links to the Kindle, Nook, print edition (Amazon) and other versions they offer. This was agreeable to them, as well, and so that is what has been done, along with some introductory comments of mine to my readers. I have also, subsequently, embedded the complete YouTube playlist at the bottom of the page, as well as a sample video of “Principle One” (which I love) after my comments, to provide this format on the blog as well. It’s all right there for easy access!
So, without further ado, here is the link to the Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ resource page:
[This page may also be accessed any time under the “Resources” tab on the header bar and “Resources” menu on the sidebar.]
As one final note, I desire to help spread the word concerning this resource to as many as possible and ask if you would also partner with me in this. Would you either share this post, or go to their website and use their share buttons to promote it through whatever social media means you may use? That would just be awesome!! Thanks!
I’d love to hear back from you also with your comments and feedback on it once you’ve had a chance to dig in!
I pray you are richly blessed!
Love in Him,
