What I did last year (and for a few years actually)…

December 2019

For the past few years, I have been working with Jesse C. Jones (a lifetime friend of the Crosnoes) on a number of books and new testament bible study guides.  These books are all available on scribd on my account there.  You can add them to your kindle account if you have one so you can read them from there.  The books are free to download and share – whatever works for you.

The links on scribd:

https://www.scribd.com/lists/4293528/Books-for-Believers-Seekers  (for the list of books)

https://www.scribd.com/lists/22254455/Bible-Study-Guides-by-Jesse-C-Jones (for the list of study guides)

In these books, Jesse occasionally shares personal references to when he had an encounter with the Lord and mentions my mom and dad specifically in the book “A Man of God” which is about Brother Frid (a great bible teacher and mentor).  It is a remarkable body of work and I am glad to have been able to help make them available.  I served as both editor and publisher and am mentioned in the preface for the bible study guides.

I also did the simple cover work on the bible study guides, but a fabulous artist named Rex Morache did the others. I found him while looking for the cover art for the book on Revelation.  The cover for that book is one of his works that he permitted us to use on the book.  The others he created specially for us.

I hope you enjoy them all and that they bless your life!

Love,

Sandie

The Case for Christ — one Man’s Journey to Find the Truth

The movie is compelling on so many levels. It was refreshing to see a journalist actually dig for a story and admit when he makes a mistake! The story is about Lee Strobel and his efforts to research and debunk the ‘myth’ of Christianity and faith. He is a writer and a seeker of truth from beginning to end.

 

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13

If you are paying attention you can almost see the hound of heaven pounding on the door of his heart.  You can see the prayers of his wife materialize on the screen.  You can feel the agony of a man’s journey to find the truth even when it defies all he has built his life around.

Don’t miss this movie when it is in your area.  You and your entire family will enjoy and probably learn something too.  Did I mention there is a subplot that is as compelling as the main story.  It revolves around a court case and a media story that causes his conviction wrongfully.  I wonder how many of us would have had the courage to admit we were wrong and correct the matter?

Here is the website about the movie.

If you stay for the credits you will find out what happened to each of the main characters and even the children.  If you want to read the book, it is available on Amazon.  Click here for more info or to order online.

A Man of God — A Tribute and a Testimony to Brother Frid

 

This book is very personal to me and my family.  My folks met the Lord with Jesse and a few other people many years ago in the 1960’s.  Our families visited together through the years and they taught us about their encounter with Jesus, their study of the bible and encouraged us to seek Him too.  I remember bible studies in various homes specifically for the children.  Many of the children met Jesus along the way and were baptized in the Holy Spirit as well.  They now have their own stories to tell and most their own families.  Special thanks to Jesse and my parents for pointing the Way and for bible teachers like Brother Frid, and Pastor Hong Sit and Derek Prince who gave us a firm foundation for life’s ups and downs.  A few years down the road, my dad became a bible teacher and I have a few of his studies on tape.  Jesse, retired now, has been writing and I am glad for the opportunity to share some of his work.  I pray it will be a blessing to many and that we will leave a clear path for those that follow us.

Thanks Jesse for putting this part of the story in print!

The Man of God - Brother Frid

The Preface to A Man of God by Jesse C. Jones

This is a story about a man, a place, and a time when the lives of many people were touched by a power they did not know existed, nor did they know that this power was available to them.  The man that God used to demonstrate this power was unassuming and  totally devoid of the pride of life that plagues most men, and has led an untold number into exaggerated self-esteem and conceit.  He appeared in this appointed place without fanfare, and he came into our lives as a result of an event that he had no part in, and, as far as I know was not even aware of.  That he had been prepared for this place and time seems to be without question, for things happened rapidly after he began to be used by God in the ministry to which he had been called.

Looking back on this time, some fifty years ago, makes me think about how a large storm moves through a place and changes everything, and then is gone.  Like many of the changes brought about by the storm, the changes wrought in the lives touched by God through this man have not gone away, for they were changes to men’s hearts, and all the issues of life come from the heart (Pr. 4:23).  I know first-hand about the changes in the lives of my family: this is something we will consider later in the book.  But to tell this story in any meaningful way I need to describe the effect of this man’s ministry on other’s lives.  There were many people touched by this outpouring of God’s grace and I am personally acquainted with only a few: many have gone on to their eternal reward.  I wish I had more detail on the life of the principal character, but he and his wife have long since departed, and after fifty years there are relatively few knowledgeable sources still around.  Nevertheless, I have used the contacts I could identify.  I pray that readers will be touched by this story as I have been through the power of God manifested in this man’s life.

LONANG: Law of Nature and Nature’s God

LONANG is an acronym for the Laws of Nature and (of) Nature’s God, a phrase first used in the U.S. Declaration of Independence, 1776. The phrase is also a plural contraction; a somewhat shorthand way of saying “the law of nature and the law of nature’s God.”

But the concepts embodied in the phrase didn’t originate with Jefferson. The law of nature was a common term used by historic legal writers such as Grotius, Burlamaqui, Blackstone and others. The law of nature’s God, a lesser used term, was more commonly called the divine law, or the revealed law, meaning the laws of God revealed in verbal form. So what are these laws, and what can be known about them? This is our task . . .
