As Pastor Veach says in the book’s forward, “May these devotionals create a daily awakening in your heart and make you even more useful in the Lord’s hands. Stay prepared ... Jesus is coming!”
Arthur Blessitt, host of the “Praise the Lord” show on the TBN network, which recently interviewed Pastor Veach (http://www.rockyveach.com) said, “This book full of scripture and wisdom deals with real life and how to live in the Way of God. For many there is sudden zeal, a desire to live for Jesus and share Jesus with others. Then in time often the fire dies and one’s life is only filled with dreams and wishes but not power and fruit bearing as a living witness for Jesus.
“Now, I challenge you to take a daily journey in following Jesus for the next year. I can assure you that your life will be powerfully transformed with the infilling of the love of God and a desire to share Jesus with others. You will be filled with the glorious expectancy of Jesus’ return.
“Rocky Veach is a personal friend but much more a true man of God – a man Jesus is raising up to carry the torch of biblical knowledge and wisdom mixed with evangelism and witness. As I grow older and my time is shorter, I am thrilled to read this book and know the great hope we have for the Gospel to go forth to all the world in the generation now and to come. Rocky is a powerful voice in this fresh new wave of the Glory of God sweeping the earth. I wholeheartedly recommend Everyday Preparation for Jesus’ Return!”
An example devotional from the book follows:
Finishing What Jesus Started
“…but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now… you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:5, 8 NKJV
Jesus’ strategy for building the Church in His absence is notably straight-forward, simplistic and meant to be viewed as continuous from the day He left until the day He returns. The same approach He used in ministry He now gives to those who follow His call. Remaining immersed “in” what the Holy Spirit initially pours “upon” us is our primary objective. This ensures that we will personally experience the Spirit to spirit connection, life, and power before we try to pass it on or explain it to someone else.
Next, we learn our practical approach to delivering Christ’s message. It is carried by “witnesses,”
