Why are relationships so difficult sometime? In this e-book Raven discusses relationships with husbands, wives and others, relationship with God and the absurdity of one human being being over another human being.
Touching God…knowing him intimately, communicating with him, knowing his presence. This is something we must nurture. A very important part of knowing and touching God is prayer. Prayer’s most basic definition is talking to God. Just about all religions pray in some form.
Prayer is the very lifeblood of the spirit but it is sadly the least emphasized or it is taught as just a way to get something from God. As blood is to the body, prayer is to the spiritual man. It carries away impurities, fights spiritual diseases and furnishes oxygen to our spiritual minds. Prayer tears down walls between you and God. It heals our spiritual deafness so we can believe and hear the voice of God. This author pleads for you to put aside religion and tradition and whatever excuses you have for not believing and consider these words and PRAY. This is how we touch God and connect to Him.Also available in Paperback.

True Spirituality. Just saying it brings to mind a myriad of responses and reactions, some very emotionally charged and most polar opposites of each other. It is said if you want to start an argument then mention religion or politics. I have to agree. However, I propose to you that true spirituality has nothing to do with religion. I think a big part of the problem is the messed up definition most of us have of what it means. True spirituality has nothing to do with religion or any particular set of beliefs. It is an all-encompassing view of life and not denying that things are more connected than most want to accept. True spirituality carries over into every aspect of your life. It’s not something you have to stir up, pay up or wind up. It becomes as real as the air you breathe, invisible in many ways but so real and vital to you as an individual. True spirituality is something that comes alongside everything you do, every thought you think and everything you see. It becomes a filter through which you view all things on a level that just makes sense. Also available in Paperback.
ARE WE MAKING THIS TOO HARD?
So many are so confused about what a Christian is and what it means to truly walk with God. It starts by having a relationship with God Himself. It isn’t about religion, that’s a man made thing; It is about relationship. It is knowing who you are in Christ. It is knowing and believing what the Bible says. When you realize who you are in Christ and what He has accomplished on your behalf then it will become natural for you to live for God. Not struggling. Not trying to pay a debt you think you owe. You will be transformed. You will be free.
So many religions have made it so difficult and many sincere people are lost in a labyrinth of confusing doctrines. Don’t be lost in the labyrinth any longer.
This book is about being free. It is the way out of the labyrinth of confusion and bondage. This book contains a series of teachings that I have given through the years. If it is truly God’s Word it will be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path not confuse us more and cast shadows over the path we are walking. Darkness is not a force in and of itself. Darkness is the absence of light. May God use this book to shed light upon your path. Also available in Paperback. 6.69″X9.61″ 405 Pages
The Case For Intelligent Design
Is evolution a fact? Is evolution science? Is there a case for intelligent design? Ever since Darwin and his work Origin of the Species, written in 1859, it has been more or less accepted that evolution was the only explanation of where all life originated from and that intelligent design was only a religious belief. However, with the advancement of technology scientists have been able to study life on a molecular level with powerful microscopes not available in Darwin’s time. With the discovery of DNA and the complex molecular machinery of certain bacteria many scientists are challenging the theory of evolution and believe intelligent design is worth reconsidering and should be put back on the table for consideration.
In this book I wish to present the mounting evidence in favor of intelligent design as an explanation to the origin of life. I will look at microscopic molecular machines; tiny machines composed of molecular material that compare in many ways to machinery created by human beings. I will look at DNA and the complex information it contains. I will also consider some of the flawed reasoning in the scientific world that is actually shutting out certain realms of possibility and does not encourage good science. 8-1/2″X11″ 8 Pages
Holy Bible, Wholly True
By Winkie Pratney
This is a reprint of an old article from the late Keith Green’s newsletter. It is by a Swedish biologist named Winkie Pratney and is incredibly insightful. As a scientist he presents an amazing plausible case fro the Holy Bible being inspired by God and its accuracy. Many people argue that the Bible is just some made up book but Pratney does a great job presenting evidence that cannot be denied. 8-1/2″X11″ 3 Pages

THINGS I WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD ME WHEN I BECAME A CHRISTIAN
This book is about things I have learned the hard way. And not just me because as I taught this I surveyed many people and asked them what they wished someone would have told them when they became a Christian. My heart really went out to them because many of the things they wrote to me were cries of pain, people really trying to live for God but struggling.
My hope is when you read these words that you too will gain new insights and understanding in how to really pray, how to really study God’s Word, understand adversity and more. I don’t claim to know it all. The words I present I present humbly, but I also present them with the power and authority of a Bible believing child of God. The truth will set you free (John 8:32). It is my desire with this book that God will use these words to set you free to be all that you were meant to be in Christ. Also available in Paperback and quantities may be purchased at a discount price.

By Benjamin Raven Pressley & John Manning
Homosexuality is a much debated subject in the world today and in the church in general. God does place loving boundaries on our expressions of love and sex life. And though the Bible speaks clearly that sexual relations are to be confined only in a marriage between one man and one woman this is no excuse to hate and bully those who are involved in other types of sexuality. God wants the best for his children and it is often difficult to get this message across to anyone. This book is two-fold for it first of all presents what the Bible says about homosexuality. It is also backed up by many scientific studies of homosexual populations. Secondly, this book attempts to bring the church into a place of love like Christ had for all people and to realize we all fall short of the glory of God and how we can present the Bible’s message of love to the homosexual.
REFLECTIONS OF A RAVEN
PHILOSOPHY, THOUGHTS & MUSINGS
By Benjamin Raven Pressley
From early on in my life it has seemed that I have looked at things deeper than many would. I see things differently. I see deeper meanings even for things that seemingly may not merit deeper scrutiny. I have been accused many times of over-thinking things. I have come to peace with this long ago. I realize that what I see and feel are reflections, reflections that if pondered and meditated upon are able to bring us greater understanding, peace and wisdom. Most of these reflections take place when I am writing, some when I dream, some when I meditate, some when I pray and some when I am sitting in the midst of a congregation of people on the street or gathered together in one place. It is time I shared these reflections. I hope you will read and ponder these reflections and treasure them as I have.
Homosexuality and the Church
By Daniel Garvin
Homosexuality has become a very inflamed social issue without a doubt. The church often finds itself at odds with the homosexual community knowing deep down this should not be for did Jesus not die for ALL our sins? Do we not ALL fall short of the glory of God and need a savior? Dani’el Garvin is uniquely qualified to discuss this subject as a ‘two-spirit’ Native American. In this book he examines the science between the differences in the sexes which is not as black and white as people may think. He also shares the love of God for all people and has a message the church and everyone needs to hear.
What’s Wrong with The Church?
By Daniel Garvin
The church is supposed to be the entire body of believers of Jesus Christ. It was born when 120 people entered into an upper room in obedience to Christ’s last command to them in human form. They were to pray until they were endued with power from on high which is exactly what happened after many days of prayer. Those 120 went on to establish the church in Judea, Samaria and the uttermost parts of the Earth. They performed miracles, healed the sick, brought people back from the dead and saw people’s lives changed forever, gloriously born again. What happened? How did the church go from being a powerhouse to the church as we know it today? Dani’el takes a very informative look at how the church has changed throughout history and how it can get back on track in this book.
By Daniel Garvin
Hidden truths come in all forms. Ask yourself what is the difference between the way indigenous natives think and western settlers? How about Jews and Christians? Are there irreconcilable differences among world views? What about sexual differences or emotional, rational and spiritual differences? Can we understand that people are simply different without demonizing them as weird? This book is full of native wisdom from Mi’qmaq Elder Dani’el Okinow Garvin and others. This collection of writings have hidden treasures within them for those who seek.
My Journey Into The Father’s Love
By Daniel Garvin
My original biological father was an alcoholic, so my relating to a father image was damaged until one day I connected with the Heavenly Father who told me He wanted to reconnect with me, because “Before I was born He knew me and consecrated me.” Then He did an amazing thing; He downloaded in me what was His nature, His unconditional, immeasurable love. It was like a substance came into me of His love, and I’ve never been able to get over it! It filled every part of my being, body, soul, spirit, mind, will, and emotions. It was like a spiritual force surging inside me, and out to the world around me. What I hope to accomplish with this book now is a description of my everyday intimacy with my heavenly “Daddy” through His son Jesus the Christ.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love, and with loving-kindness, I am drawing you into my arms of love.” Jeremiah 31:3
By Daniel Garvin
“Poetry reflects the heart to the extent that reading it opens your spirit to see into the depths of the spirit and the soul. This opens one up to the supernatural realm and expands one’s vision to ‘see’ beyond the natural everyday reality. May these poems cause you to ‘see’. A’Ho.”–Dani’El Garvin
Dani’el invites you to enjoy and be touched, inspired and challenged with his original poetry from the heart of a Miq’mac elder who follows the ways of Yahweh.
Unity In The Body Of Christ
By Daniel Garvin
When the world recognizes our unity as true believers in Yahshua/messiah, then they will come to know the love of our Father Abba. The was the last recorded prayer of Jesus/Yashua was in John 17 where he prayed that his people unite as one together in the greatest force in the universe Abba/God’s love. My book ‘Unity In The Body’ addresses these issues and how we all can come together as one.
By Daniel Garvin
We live in a culture focused on self esteem that is to the point of narcissism and self worship. The god within is the theme of the New Age today. I say, God help the world if I am God! Only God should be esteemed. We get our true identities as his wonderful creations and not from ourselves or others. Let’s worship him for the way he created us. Psalms 139 wonderfully puts things into perspective. In my book ‘God Esteem’ I try to bring things back into a Godly balance on who we are and who he is.
How To Minister To The Transgender In Your Fellowship
By Daniel Garvin
Gender, strictly speaking, is binary, male and female, determined by the sex organs you are born with, however, mentally it can be more complicated than that. During birth fluids in the womb can strongly bias a ‘brain sex’ in certain people. But just as 2% of the world’s population are redheads there are 2% of the world’s population that have a more complicated DNA and chromosomal diversity. The X chromosome is one of the two sex chromosomes in humans (the other is the Y chromosome.). Females have two X chromosomes, while males have one X and one Y chromosome. Early in embryonic development in females, one of the two X chromosomes is randomly and permanently inactivated in cells other than egg cells, normally, but every now and then scientists are observing XX males, XY females and XXY. Native Americans have described the XXY person to be ‘two spirits’. As a Native American and the author of this book I identify with the latter designation. There are many terms used to describe these more complicated people like Klinefelters, Hermaphrodites, XXXY tall athletic women, to name a few. In nature we observe that worms have both genders. Male starfish and sea horses carry the eggs. The Clown fish can change from male to female. Is the Creator one of diversity or is this the result of the fall told about in the book of Genesis? Christ taught that there are those who are born as eunuchs. John 9 says God can be glorified in the midst of birth problems. Walking in holiness and purity is the key. In my book I endeavor to explain and bring unity in the church on this often divisive issue. I share my struggle and how the Holy Spirit helps me to lead a pure life.
MY JOURNEY INTO EXPLORING THE HOLY SPIRIT
A SANE THEOLOGY IN THE MIDST OF EXPERIENTIAL VUNERABILITY
By Daniel Garvin
The Holy Spirit…The Baptism in the Holy Spirit…Why are these such controversial and divisive topics? Are the gifts of the Holy Spirit even relevant for today or have they ceased as some believe? I want to address all these issues and more as I share my journey and how the Holy Spirit taught me by experience and study of God’s Word, the Bible. I think you will find it eye opening and a blessing!
The Transformation of the Church
By Daniel Garvin
The Church has attempted to go through a reformation under Luther, Calvin, and many other reformers. Through them Catholic canonized scriptures have been translated and made available to all. However, what system were they trying to reform and improve on? The church of today has been heavily influenced by pagan roots. This new perverted form of Christianity goes back to the Babylonian and Canaanite curse. This is the root system of even today’s contemporary Church. When you draw nutrients & sustenance from a polluted root system, then try to reform a pagan system, you still end up with a polluted version far from original first century Church and what it was meant to be! Learn more in this eye-opening book from Dani’el Garvin.
Indigenous Native Two Spirit Identity
By Dani’el Garvin
Have you ever heard the term ‘Two Spirit’? Among those who have heard the term often describe it wrongly as the Native American term for transgender. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many tribes had what they considered a gift to the tribe, the birth of a Native two spirit medicine person. These special intersex Natives embodied a pan-Indian third gender, who could identify with both male and female identities. The truth is, a two spirit gifted tribal member had more to do with spiritual good medicine, as they often possessed a seer gift, and very little to do with sexualization. A two spirit person doesn’t really fit into the LGBTQ expressions of sexualization, nor do they desire to have physical and surgical alterations. Our focus is primarily on the Spirit, and our identity role in tribal culture. Dani’el Garvin knows. He is a two spirit Miq’maq Native American. This book will help you understand what a two spirit truly is. Dani’el shares the heartbreak and rewards of his journey as a two spirit person and offers direction and hope to others who may be struggling with their sexual identity.

The Truth of Restoration
By Rabbi Jeffrey L. Weiss
This E-book will fill you with deeper scriptural understanding that the LORD wants His body of believers to know and take ownership of. It is not about religion, rather it is based on a relationship with the One true God! Man has created all the religions through their religious dogma, but God desires a Covenantal relationship. His Truth is black and white. Man’s theology has created all the gray areas. Do you really have complete understanding of God’s Marriage Covenant, The Oneness of God and The True Essence of the Messiah? As well as the correlation of: 1) The completion of 6000 years from Creation, 2) Yom Teruah (Rosh haShanah) 1999, 3) Succot (Feast of Tabernacles) 1999, 4) The Native Americans as the Gatekeepers of America, 5) The End Time Restoration and the Two Sticks becoming One in the Hand of YHVH and 6) The Hardeeville Explosion in the year 2000? If not, then you will definitely need to read The Truth of Reformation – Second Edition!! If you are a Christian and are searching for Truth, this is the book for you. If you are a Messianic believer and are still questioning some things, this is the book for you.

ZEN POETRY MOMENTS HAIKU AND SENRYU FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS: A celebration of moments in time
By Joseph J. Truncale
I have always loved the simple elegance of the haiku and senryu forms of poetry. The haiku and senryu in this collection were created specifically for the many different occasions humans may celebrate, as well as the many emotions one may have experienced in a life time.

MARTIAL ARTS AND WARRIOR HAIKU AND SENRYU
This book is focused on haiku and senryu relating to the history, philosophy, techniques, and tactics of numerous martial arts, warrior professions, and self-defense combative systems. Haiku is a Japanese poetry form which was created from a linked poem form. Basho is considered the father of what we know as haiku today even though he did not invent this poetry form. Haiku is a 17 syllable poem with three lines. The first and third line usually has 5 syllables and the second line has seven syllables; however, it is more important to focus on the message of the poem. Where the formal haiku poem is usually about a moment in time including the seasons and nature, senryu poems are subjective in nature and can be about the nature of man, his foibles, follies and can also be a humorous poem. Unlike Haiku, Senryu does not usually have a seasonal word. It is hoped those who appreciate the warrior philosophy and arts will enjoy these haiku and senryu I have written which comes from the heart. 8.5″X11″ 96 Pages
