A game changer - The Publisher
(DESTIN) Capt. Ben Marler is releasing a third published book this week with 200 copies to arrive on March 29, just in time for Easter. "I AM NOT ASHAMED OF (You Need This Book!) JESUS" is "100 pages of Powerful Persuasion." It follows closely behind the daily devotional: 4 o'clock in the morning In a Sleepy Fishing Village Called Destin.
Dedicated to "Those in Christ who are weak and fearful and need to be made strong and courageous in witnessing in these last days,"' which he says, is all of us.
With 19 chapter titles that include, "Christianity is Not a Popularity Contest," and "Brothers and Sisters We are Outnumbered" it offers surprisingly gentle methods of sharing your faith in Jesus, such as speaking softly with a child like voice.
He also recommends writing out your personal testimony in both long and very short versions, and handing them out. He promises "more JOY than you can handle," comes from serving Jesus.
Personal stories reveal how in 1974, Capt. Ben had an amazing experience with the Holy Spirit, a rippling-like sensation, that he felt moving from his toes up to his lips while lying down, which he believes gave him specific power to win lost souls- the same supernatural power that the disciples experienced in the book of Acts. His wife Joan had a similar experience. While kneeling and telling God how much she loved him, Jesus came, lighting up the whole living room.
Capt. Ben relates, once you love Jesus for what He did for you, taking your punishment on the cross, you mustn't be ashamed of the gospel which has the power to save men's souls from hell. If you are, then the chilling words of Luke 9:26 apply. Jesus said, "If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and the glory of the Father and the holy angels."
All profits go to Old Destin Fund charity which provides food and other help to hurting people.
Capt. Ben is the author of Old Destin Through the eyes of a Child.
