About the Book:  Discover How to Partner With Your Invisible Allies!

The world is curious about angels! Pop culture places great emphasis on these invisible beings, nearly idolizing them.

But, have you ever wondered: What do angels do and how do their tasks affect me? Through Bible-based revelation-combined with his dynamic, personal encounters with the angelic realm-Tim Sheets invites you to experience the unseen world of Heaven's mighty warriors.

Discover how angels:

  • PARTNER with Christians to bring transformation and deliverance to entire regions.
  • SUPERNATURALLY work with your prayers to release Heaven's answers and allow breakthrough in your life.
  • BATTLE in the spirit realm to give assistance, provide protection, and bring deliverance.

From Genesis through Revelation, Scripture is filled with angelic encounters: Jacob, Daniel, Mary, John-and even Jesus Himself-were all assisted or visited by angels.

Angels are more than invisible guardians of the Heavens-they are fierce soldiers commissioned to overthrow the powers of darkness.


About the Author:  Dr. Tim Sheets is an Apostle, Pastor, and Author based in southwestern Ohio. A graduate of Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, he returned to Ohio in 1979 to pastor The Oasis Church in Middletown.

About the Book:  Experience Salvation, Healing, and Deliverance in Every Area of Your Life

For too long, the popular understanding of Christian salvation has been limited to securing a place in Heaven. Sadly, many Christ-followers experience constant defeat during their time on Earth. Something is missing.

The Biblical concept of salvation comes from the Greek word ‘Sozo’ and has a holistic implication. Power and victory flowed through the New Testament Church because the early Christians understood how to live out their salvation in a way that impacted every area of their lives— spirit, soul, and body.

In SOZO, Dawna De Silva and Teresa Liebscher provide revelatory teaching and miraculous testimonies that paint a stunning picture of how to experience Heaven’s freedom in every area of your life.

You will receive:

  • practical tools to deepen your relationship with the Triune God—Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.
  • victory strategies to help you disarm lies, break harmful patterns, shift spiritual atmospheres, and access the often-unreached realms of abundant life.
  • keys to experience inner healing by breaking addictions, overcoming obstacles, and walking in sustained deliverance.

Salvation is not simply a ticket to Heaven.

It is abundant life that begins now…and continues forever.

About the Authors:  Dawna De Silva is the founder and co-leader with Teresa Liebscher of the International Bethel Sozo Ministry. She and her husband, Stephen De Silva, have ministered from Bethel for the past twenty years as well as preaching, speaking, and authoring books. Dawna’s manual on Shifting Atmospheres has become a sought after tool for daily empowerment. Whether training Sozo, preaching, shifting atmospheres, or ministering prophetically, Dawna releases people, churches, and cities into new vision and freedom. No matter how traumatic the wounding, Dawna ministers with authority and gentleness, imparting hope and healing.

Teresa Liebscher is a co-leader of the Bethel Sozo ministry headquarters at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. She is also the founder and leader of the Shabar ministry. The Bethel Sozo ministry was birth in 1997 and the Shabar ministry in 2006. Teresa travels the world training, mentoring and ministering in both Bethel Sozo and Shabar ministry. Her passion in all areas of her ministering life is to not only connect individuals with each member of the Godhead, but also to make sure that connection is healthy.

In Destined to Win, he passes on the lessons that will help readers discover who they really are, overcome destructive behaviors, and become equipped for their kingdom purposes.

Confronting the challenges that limit Christians—such as living shackled by past pain, fear, and unforgiveness—Vallotton offers practical solutions to the of­ten-complex problems that undermine their destinies and derail their pur­poses. With personal stories and biblical teaching, Destined to Win combines practical wisdom and profound revelation to unlock the latent potential present in each person.

Kris travels internationally training and equipping people to successfully fulfill their divine purpose.

  • Find out where you can go online to get your very own copy of DNA Transformation. (16:10-16:29)

About the Album:  Terry released DNA Transformation, because of the overwhelming response and call for her to record her unique sound. The album creates a perfect atmosphere for prayer, soaking and study, as well as providing a dynamic soundtrack for life. The sound has been called “a bridge across denominations and races”, and appeals to Christian and non Christian alike.

About Terry Holloman:  Terry started playing music at the age of eight, playing organ and trombone. It was at fourteen that she first realized she was called of God to music. Her mother made her play the organ at their church, but even though she did so reluctantly, it was then Terry first felt the Presence of God. “It was like electricity shooting through me.” Terry said. She never forgot it.

Terry is now a powerfully anointed keyboardist, minstrel, writer and producer, and has developed a very unique sound, which is fusion of Bethel style soaking music, spontaneous song and jazz, with urban touches. Her passion is to share her heart for worship with a wise spectrum of the Body of Christ.

She is the Founder of a powerful, unique worship/intercession ministry called “The Mary Experience”, named from the reference in John 12:3, where Mary of Bethany poured the ointment on the feet of Jesus. The ministry, based in Atlanta, Georgia, was created to give psalmists and minstrels an opportunity to be a voice to help people hear God’s heart through music. Much of the flow of music, song, spoken word and interaction is totally spontaneous,  and releases an atmosphere of freedom, joy, and deep connection with God and one another.

The two became close friends, but it wasn't until Médine returned home that Craig--coming to terms with his own wounded heart--realized his love for her. But civil war had broken out in Congo.

Separated by continents, cultures and the ravages of war, Craig and Médine never stopped believing that faith, hope and love can surmount even the most overwhelming obstacles. Part romance, part thrilling adventure, their story is an unforgettable, miracle-filled journey of impossible love. You will be amazed by the God whose own great love for each of us will always overcome.

Will you say yes?

In her warm, conversational way, bestselling author and Proverbs 31 speaker Suzanne Eller shows how, when you say yes, you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the worries and excuses.

So come. Walk with Jesus. Listen to his words. Step into the harder places of faith--but not alone. Learn who you are, but more so who he is to you.

The road will wind, your feet will get dusty. But you will discover the unexpected beauty of following where he leads. And that is worth everything.
