My friend Philip “Wild Man” Hicks was living in the fast lane – reporting sports, eating fire and partying with the likes of Jimmy Buffet, Hunter S. Thompson, and Robin Williams. All of this was to come screeching to a sudden halt, though, with a burglary gone wrong and a Mafia hit man at the wrong side of a .357 magnum! Dig into this page-turner to see how Jesus Christ could capture the heart of this “rebel without a cause” and infuse new life, faith and meaning to those around him.

“A marvelous and intensely interesting account of God taking a man out of darkness into light.” Merlin Carothers, Author of Prison to Praise, Power in Praise and Praise Mountain.
“Philip’s life is a greenhouse for the impossible! One captivating story after another will give you the courage to face your life situations with expectation instead of dread. His method of writing reminds us of Frankk Peretti’s, author of ‘This Present Darkness’. Powerful and life-changing! Pastor Francis and Suzie Anfuso, Senior Pastor, Founder of Christian Equippers International.
“In our packets we give to inmates who receive Jesus, we include various books to encourage their growth. But when it comes to inspirational stories available today, your book is “the book of books!” Pastor Art Hallett, President of Evangelism Explosion’s International Prison Ministry.
“The Cross and the .357 Magnum is an encouragement to those who don’t follow Christ and a faith builder for those who do! Filled with miracle after miracle, you will learn how the truth can really set you free!” Dr. Samuel M. Huddleston, Asst Superintendent, Norcal/Nevada A/G. Author of “Five Years To Life”
“Philip Hicks is another wonderful story of Jesus reaching into the prison to produce a trophy of His grace! Though we represent different theological traditions, I rejoice over his story and ministry!” Chuck Colson, Founder and Chairman, Prison Fellowship
“The Book of Acts has no official ending. It is apparent that the Holy Spirit intended it this way. Why? It is because new chapters are to be written on a regular basis throughout human history.
Such a chapter is the content of Philip Hicks’ book, The Cross & the .357 Magnum. I recommend this read for any and all who are interested in the miracle power of God!” Dr. Glen D. Cole, Pastor Emeritus, Capital Christian Center, Sacramento, CA Superintendent Emeritus, Assemblies of God, Northern California/Nevada.

We take power over all the power of the enemy using or operating in our government. We send the host of having to pull down strongholds that have been built around Washington DC, in the capital, in the White House, in the Senate, in the Pentagon, in the House of Representatives, in the seat of justice, and in the Supreme Court. We pull it down, let it fall, the enemy no longer has power over our nation. Angels go and get them. We pulled in every lie, every deception, and we say that every plan of darkness will be exposed. We speak truth righteousness and Justice rule in America!

Looking Through Walls: Based On a True Story
The year is 1916 and life of a man from humble beginnings and a woman he could have never envisioned would play such a huge role in his life are about to be tested, time and time again as tragic events unfold around them.
Hailing from South Carolina, Harold Deal knows what it means to work hard and never lose sight of his small town values, but when the young architect accepts a position far from home, his life and the lives of those left behind are forever changed.
Mae is instantly smitten when she meets handsome Harold. He’s unlike any man she’d ever met before. His drive and ambition are only matched by his warm heart and unwavering zeal for life. But, no sooner does their love affair begin when the world around them is rattled by a deluge of disturbing events. On top of that, another threat looms; this one, determined to disrupt their lives and pull them apart.
Set against the backdrop of a time of great change in the United States and the world, a young couple struggle to hold onto their love in the face of turmoil, both on the home front and in the place Harold holds near and dear to his heart.
Will their love withstand the strain or will the bond between mother and son prove to be too much for them to bear?
The first time I find the mention of the peace is in the sacrifice. Lets take a look at the true meaning of a peace offering. A peace offering in the Old Testament was a voluntary sacrifice of thanks, praising and giving thanks. Shalt sacrifice … thy peace offerings…: in all places where I record my name I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. (Ex 20:24) Our covenant is a covenant of PEACE and Jesus is our peace offering (sacrifice)
I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light (demonstration and revelation) of the Gentiles; (Is 42:6)
So why did all this take place?
1. To open the blind eyes,
2. To bring out the prisoners from the prison,
3. TO (BRING OUT) them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
Our covenant is a covenant of PEACE. It will open blind eyes and set people free.
It looks like this is what happens in a revival!
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me (WITH JOY) to preach the gospel to the poor;
1. he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
2. to preach deliverance to the captives,
3. and recovering of sight to the blind,
4. to set at liberty them that are bruised,
5. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19)
God wants us to have all we need and desire so that we can have peace and bring peace to others.
Isaiah 52:7 tells us: How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings. We demonstrate that good news…
1. that publisheth peace;
2. that bringeth good tidings of good,
3. that publisheth salvation;
4. that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
In this scripture it shows us that salvation is peace! It is peace because of our restored relationship with God. We now can change any of our circumstance that don’t line up the kingdom of peace with the word to be made JUST and RIGHT.
Salvation here is the Hebrew word, “yeshooaw.” It means saved, deliverance, victory, prosperity, health, and welfare. Jesus took on the cross the punishment that we needed to have PEACE.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows…But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Is 53:4-5)
Peace is a result of the finished work of Jesus. Peace is a power that works through our righteousness. When you know who you are in Christ because of what He did for you, then the fruit of righteousness will be peace.

Your home’s roof has to battle day and night against all the forces of nature. From rain and snow to wind and hail. You’re home’s roof is always in the weather and always exposed. That’s why so many home’s roofs start to show wear only after a few years. Getting your home’s roof back in good shape means you’ll need to get roof inspections in Michigan. Here are some reasons why getting these roof inspections is a good idea and…
Have you ever been bullied? Do you sometimes feel like an ostrich? If you are human than you have. The biggest bully is the devil and it is HE that is behind every bullying! He bullies us into not receiving what the blood of Jesus paid for us to have and he bullies people into bullying others. Here is our vision and mission in this ministry. I thank you for keeping this project in prayer. Our needs are finances to do this at a professional level, professional help, creativity, skill, knowledge and my ability as a ventriloquist to write the script, and preform it. Skill and wisdom to write the books, studies, dvds, Al my husband to do the music, prayer cards, coloring books and posters. The right tools and professionals in each field and when done FAVOR, promotion to go into the right places to preform.
Bully proofing children in today’s society is the commission of this ministry.
Successful bullying prevention includes education, preparation, and teamwork. We start by educating the children using puppets, comedy and audience participation. Our team of puppets includes Niki the monkey, Sergeants Gramps, our gorilla and others.
Bullying is a real threat to children and teens.
Suicide is the third leading cause
The victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims.
Bullying destroys the child core identity and self esteem
There is hope
Our program is not offered at school because the foundation is the Word of God which provides permanent life changes in every area of a child’s life
We create a safe environment where everyone understands bullying and we empower children to actively intervene to prevent and stop bullying in their own lives.
When children understand who they are in Christ they can change themselves and situations, and bring changes to their families and communities around them. They are made aware that they are children of God, greatly loved, valuable and special. Every child has a God ordained purpose in their lives. With our life- changing ministry that shares how the can have successful living, they will no longer be under the power of fear, but know knowing that they have a life filled with purpose, they will be experiencing their full unlimited potential.
Do you really know who you are and the power you carry in you?
We are to subdue everything that gets out of God’s will. What might be that you ask for? If you are sick, you subdue it and command health to your body. Jesus took all your sickness and diseases on the cross so they wouldn’t have any power over you.
Enforce healing and health in your body! We are not bossing God around; God already did the finished work for us. Now, we are to command the devil and spirits, weather, our bodies etc., to obey what Jesus accomplished by the finished work on the cross. Jesus ALREADY PAID for us to be healthy and healed now we command it to be so. We do not ask for what He already did and said is ours. We do not beg; God is not holding it from us. We ENFORCE it with the authority given to us IN CHRIST. God gave us all dominion as kings on the earth. He wants His Kingdom (heaven’s government) to rule on earth, not Satan’s.
Dominion is a term used in a kingdom. A king is to reign, rule and have dominion. God created us to rule as kings on earth but we have fallen far from that. Thanks be to God who has placed us back into our position as king in the kingdom of God by what He accomplished in Christ.
Luke 16:16 says, “The law and the prophets WERE UNTIL JOHN. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.”
Mar 1:15 says, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”(Repent means to change you thinking from Old Covenant to New Covenant—It is all yours now freely because of what JESUS Did FOR you!)
Psa 103:19, His kingdom rules over all. (God chose to put the kingdom IN YOU! You are to enforce what Jesus paid for you to have on the cross.)
Luk 17:21, “the kingdom (royal power, kingship, dominion, rule, a kingdom, the territory subject to the rule of a king) of God is within you.”(Wherever you go the kingdom goes. It is by God’s power, not something you have to earn or feel; it is God IN YOU) 1Co 4:20 “For the kingdom of God … in power.”
Jesus gave us all authority on earth and gave us the keys to bring heaven on earth. We do this by the words of our mouth. Whatever the blood and body of Jesus paid for, we are to speak it BUT whatever comes to kill, steal and destroy we are to not allow it.
Mat 16:19, “And I will give YOU (all Christians) the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind (forbid, prohibit, declare to be illicit, declare unlawful) on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose (to deprive of authority, to declare unlawful, to break up, demolish, destroy to dissolve, to destroy, to overthrow) on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Mat 12:28, “I cast out demons by the Spirit of God … the kingdom of God has come upon you ( the reason why the Spirit of God is in you is for you to act so that the power of God would come Out of YOU!)
“Your kingdom come, Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.” (Luke 11:2) The only reason for the kingdom or government of God is to ENFORCE what has been accomplished in Christ For US!
The government in you, in power, is to enforce the finished work on the cross.
Here is what happens because the kingdom of God is in you: Luk 10:9, “And heal the sick …say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’”
Excerpts from “All Things are Yours, Stop Crying & Take it!” by Robin Bremer buy it on Amazon.com
Did you ever have one of those night and days when everything goes wrong and you have the opportunity to get stressed out? Do you want to know what I discovered that changed my life?
I just had one of those days and nights! I have learned a lesson that has changed my reaction to stressful situations.
I know that everything that happens is INFLUENCED by the spirit realm!
To many people just accept what happens as oh that’s normal that is what is to be expected. To many people think, “What will be will be” or they say God “Allowed it” so it must be God’s will after all he knows the future. NO! It is not normal to be stressed, sick, diseased, fearful, depressed or any other demonic inspirited negative emotion. Let me show you in the word of God that the spirit realm influences every negative circumstances.
Mat 16:13-23 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. ( God, Holy Spirit -from the spirit realm influenced him and gave him the answer BUT did you notice that Peter was not aware that it was God who told him)
Mat 16:19-23 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed[fn] in heaven.” Then He commanded His disciples that they should tell no one that He was Jesus the Christ.From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.
NOW look and see what happens when Peter is influenced by the demonic realm. Peter had no clue that he was being influenced by the spirit realm. Listen to Jesus response.Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” ( Jesus was talking TO Peter when He said “Get behind me Satan” )
So in this scripture you can see when Peter was influenced by evil and good from the spirit realm. YOU TOO are influenced in everyday activity and life are unknowingly influenced by the spirit realm. We are LED by the Holy SPIRIT. Do you think that this only happened to Peter. NO this was an example for us to see that things we say, places we go and things we do and think are influenced by the spirit realm. So next time you feel a twitch in your body and all of a sudden you remember a list of family and friends that had that same twitch and died of _______ sickness or disease you are under the influence of the demonic. The next think that will show you that the demonic is setting you up is that someone will come by and mention casually that so so just died of ______ the same thing you are thinking you have! Or you will go by the TV and someone will be talking about symptoms of that disease. Make note of how many ways and times that this same subject you are worried about will show up in what you see and hear. After you see this pattern you will begin to be wise to it and take authority over the demonic influence.
So don’t stress out over what appears to be bad stuff happening in your life. Take authority over it and keep your eyes open to continue reminders thought out the day that could put you in fear and instead laugh at the enemy when you see his pattern, because that means you can stop it and change the situation. When we see what the enemy is doing it makes our victory faster.
“Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had become as Sodom and had been made like unto Gomorrah” (Romans 9:27).
During the last four months, I have connected with over 6,000 Twitter users, people from all over the world. I blocked many caught up in Satanic worship and others who indulge in pornography and such sins. I saw the culture of those who live to promote ungodliness. But I also cried with a man in England who tweeted his dying wife’s last breaths, for a young man in Ecuador whose girlfriend was killed by police, and for the man living in the Colorado mountains whose little kitty was eaten by a wild animal.
What caught my attention during my “tour” of the world is that the light of God shines strongly through the darkness. I met missionaries working in schools and orphanages in the poorest of countries. I found preachers teaching Muslims the Bible in the Middle East and Africa and saw Christians laboring against odds to spread the Word in Communist countries. A young woman in Los Angeles belted out the hymn “In Christ Alone.” Her face was lit up with the joy she felt singing about her Lord. All over the world, bloggers, book authors, website builders, singers, counselors, churches, and preachers tell about our Lord and His love for mankind.
Yes, just as God had a remnant of Israelites who obeyed Him, He has a remnant in our world today. Their voices are heard by millions. They work tirelessly and sometimes give their all to save others physically and spiritually. They are shining lights in a world of darkness.
God still calls each Christian to show His love to others. We don’t have to go around the world. Maybe we can just step across the street. Let’s be a light shining in a world of darkness.
