A brother needs our support! - 07/24/13 01:43 AM

Shalom everybody! I wanted to bring something to everyone's attention. A good friend of mine, and a very devout disciple of Yeshua, is currently writing a book that absolutely needs to be written! I've spent many hours with him discussing what the Holy Spirit has put inside of him, and believe that this message can make some serious differences in the modern day church.

His name is [name removed by Moderator]. He is currently hosting a fundraiser to gain the capital needed for publishing. He's actually already received a commitment from Thomas Nelson to publish it, and now he just needs to come up with some funds!

This book is aimed at the Gentile church. It goes through some of the most commonly dividing aspects of the Bible, and applies the original (mostly 1st century Jewish) context back into the scriptures. With the understanding he's been given on the Apostolic writings, if he can get this information into the church, it could make a world of difference!

Please, let's all do what we can to support him!

It might not have been your intent to misrepresent, but [name removed by Moderator] is still quite a long way away from being ready for publishing.

I don't feel I misrepresented the situation by any means. He is actively writing, and intends to keep writing as he is directed by the Holy Spirit, funds or no funds. He currently works as a sub-contractor for a sales and marketing company, and the research funds were so he could possibly take a couple of weeks off to focus on his writing. Regardless of whether those funds are raised, he will continue writing with the time he has!

Yes, he is a long way from fully funded, I agree! That's why I brought his needs to the attention of this community.

...and you had not been accused. Rather, I have simply pointed out that your initial statement about someone in need of some funds for publication is incomplete. I do not know EliYah's policy related to solicitations here, but I do recognize one when I see it, and I believe people need to use great caution whenever one might pop up.

There is not enough information about this ministry posted and since this is focusing on providing financial support, the person who wrote this book or is writing this book has to come on here and post on the forum himself in the proper format for this forum and provide enough detailed explanation to be more than just a "please support me financially" post. It has to contain sufficient content appropriate for this forum to be permitted. I don't see enough information, so this topic post is locked.
