Being OK with Not Being OK – Embracing God’s Design for You … and Everyone You Know (and Don’t Know) (#1985) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.

For now, you’re broken, and you aren’t going to be “fixed.” Granted, you may have some days that are better than others, some circumstances that seem to indicate that you are “OK,” but the wearisome cycle simply will recur.

Thus it is by design – by divine design. Father is bringing you to a place where you are OK with not being OK, where you simply rest in His current purpose and plan in your training and development for that grand and magnificent culmination that He has so wonderfully and skillfully designed especially for you – in your next life.

Church in Ruins, The: Brief Thoughts on II Timothy (#3325) Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. This brief survey of Paul’s last epistle will reveal that while almost 2000 years have transpired, the condition of the church has remained the same, and indeed has worsened in accordance with Paul’s warning to Timothy. This book is not a call for a re-awakening of “the church,” because it is apparent that this is not Father’s plan. Rather, it is a call to individual men – men whose place in the Christian religious system has left them empty, stagnant, and restless – to awaken to Father’s call to be His faithful servant and stand outside of that system to look for other faithful men as well.

De Kerk in Puin: Een Korte Overdenking van 2 Timotheüs, Paulus’ Laatste Brief aan de Kerk (Church In Ruins - DUTCH VERSION) door Clyde L. Pilkington Jr. Dit korte overzicht van Paulus' laatste brief zal onthullen dat, hoewel bijna 2000 jaar voorbij zijn, de toestand van de kerk dezelfde is gebleven, en zeker nog erger is geworden, overeenkomstig Paulus' waarschuwing aan Timotheüs. Dit boek is geen oproep voor een wakker worden van "de kerk," omdat het duidelijk is dat dit niet Vader's plan is. Nee, het is eerder een oproep aan individuele mensen - mensen van wie de plaats in het Christelijke, religieuze systeem hen leeg heeft achtergelaten, stilstaand, rusteloos - om te ontwaken bij de roep van Vader om Zijn trouwe dienaren te zijn en buiten het systeem te staan en uit te zien naar andere trouwe mensen. 116 paginas PB $9.95

Daily Gleanings: 365 Selections on Scriptural Truths (#1836) Editor: Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.  This book contains a collection of gleanings from some 200 different authors. These excerpts are intended to be an encouragement to those who are walking on a different path with the Lord – a journey that is “outside of the camp.” Some quotations are from beloved and trusted authors, but more often than not, they are from unusual sources. Sometimes, it is simply amazing how an author can admit in print to some grand truth that their writings and ministries otherwise generally deny. For the authors of these quotes, the truth that is conveyed by them may oddly seem “out of place”; but in some ways, the more unlikely the source, the more amazingly it testifies to the truth – and the fact that it cannot be hidden. ISBN: 9781934251836 -- 253 pp, PB, $19.95

Daily Goodies: 365 Thoughts on Scriptural Truths (#1747) by Clyde L.

God’s Holy Nation: Israel and Her Earthly Purpose (Contrasted with the Body of Christ and Its Heavenly Purpose) (#2275) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.

Israel plays a key role in God’s plan of the ages. Though currently she has been set aside “until the times of the nations be fulfi lled,” He is by no means done with her.

Today, God is operating His purpose in the ecclesia – the Church, the Body of Christ. The Scriptures provide us with the clear, critical distinction between God’s earthly nation and Christ’s celestial body.

Christendom, however, has diminished Israel’s divine significance in an attempt to advance their artificial homogenization of Scripture’s grand theme, thus obscuring the glorious evangel of our day – “the Good News of the Happy God” committed to the trust of Paul, our Apostle.

This work highlights some of the more prominent distinctions which belong to God’s literal, physical, earthly nation. In so doing, it is our desire to allow the reader to see more clearly God’s dealings with God’s favored nation, so that they may in turn embrace a far greater calling and purpose. ISBN: 9781934251887 -- 360 page PB $19.95

Heaven’s Embassy: The Divine Plan & Purpose of the Home (#5675) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. The home is central to all of God’s dealings with man throughout the course of time. It is His Divine “institution” and “organization” upon the earth; and for the believer, it is the Embassy of Heaven. An embassy is “the residence or office of an ambassador.” Since the believer is an ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:14-21), his home is thus the Divine Embassy of heavenly ministry. Pauline ministry is centered in the homes of believers. This is even the true sphere of the Body of Christ; for this reason our apostle speaks of “church in thy house.” This book doesn’t focus upon the external specifics of the ministry of Heaven’s Embassy (such as hospitality); that will be saved for another volume. Instead, it looks at the inner-workings of the Embassy itself; focusing upon its very nature and internal purpose and function. 250 pp. PB $19.95

I Am! Who and What God Says I Am! The Divine Reckoning of the Renewed Mind; Daily Thoughts on Divine Life (#1737) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. People are always talking about their attempts to discover their true selves – their efforts at trying to “find themselves.” The believer in the Lord Jesus Christ needs to find out who they really are. This doesn’t need to be such a difficult search. All that is really needed is a careful look at the Scriptures, and a simple faith in the words of who and what God says we are. God knows who we are; all we need to do is to believe Him. This book catalogs the Divine Record of who and what God says you are. It is a short encyclopedia of faith; the truth about you. It is the truth about you, simply because it is God Who has said it. God has spoken these truths concerning you – the real you.  Believe His record! Refuse to be a shell of a person, pushed into a mold of Adamic conformity. Be the real unique you whom God has designed you to be. Refuse to be bullied out of your divinely designed identity that our Father has given you. Understanding and believing these glorious truths will allow you the freedom to be at rest. ISBN: 9781934251737 -- 107pp PB $9.95

I Choose! Living Life to Its Fullest (#4120) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Forty-Eight Daily Thoughts on Divine Life. You are alive! Yet not just alive, but alive with the very life of God! Don’t allow your “What if…” imaginations of the past or the future to lay claim to the present that God has given you. Allow the objective, unchanging truth of who God has made you in the Lord Jesus Christ to transform your mind and life as you take this spiritual journey of I Choose.” ISBN: 9781934251324 / 1934251321 --192 page PB $16.95

King James Version, The: 400 Years of Bondage – 1611-2011 (#4682) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. 1611 was not a high spiritual mark in the history of the church, the Body of Christ. Instead of being a grand year of the pinnacle of preservation or perfection of God’s Word, it was rather the sad depths of the subtle corrupting of God’s Word by the historic union of governmental and ecclesiastical politics. 76 page PB $9.95

A Look at Alcohol in the Scriptures (#1150) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Don’t be fooled by the teetotalism. Contrary to what many attempt to teach, the Scriptures are replete with the divine gift and godly blessings of alcohol. 54 page PB. $4.95

Outsiders, The: God’s Called-Out Ones – A Biblical Look at the Church God’s Ecclesia (#4125) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. In 1995, after sixteen years of being in the “pastorate” the author walked away. He left the "religious system" by resigning from the very “church” and “ministry” he had formed.  In many ways this work is a testament to these actions. This testimony was thirty years in the making -- the results of a spiritual journey that the author found to be common to other saints scattered throughout the world and across history. This is an opportunity to explain why some who love the Lord no longer "go to church." It does not seek to persuade others to do something different; but rather to simply be who and what they already are “in Him.” This is an uncovering of the truth of the church, and an encouragement for the members of His Body to enjoy the position and standing “in Christ” that they already possess, realizing that they are truly “complete in Him” (Colossians 2:10), that He alone is their Life (Colossians 3:4), and that His Life is full of freedom (Galatians 5:1).  ISBN: 9781934251614 -- 128 page PB

Plowboy’s Bible, The : God’s Word for Common Man (#4425) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Shocking conclusions from the man that brought you The King James Bible Song. This book represents years of study and a significant change in understanding. Raised on and trained in a “King James Only” position, most of the author’s teaching ministry was centered on the defense of the KJV. He had early associations with major proponents of this position and their followers. He actively taught classes and seminars on the subject of Bible versions. For many years he distributed thousands of books from a collection of over 100 different titles in support of the KJV position. Here he shares what he has come to see that has caused him to completely abandon his former position. 254pp PB $19.95

The Salvation of All is a book about a “Good News” that will reach its final goal in the salvation of all mankind.

Suffering: God’s Forgotten Gift (#5150) Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. Two gifts given to the believer are mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29. The first is “to believe on Him.” This is a glorious gift. Every believer has been given this gift from God. Those who possess it may not even fully recognize it as a gift from Him, but indeed faith is God’s wonderful gift to us. Faith is a rich gift from God, but there is also another gift from God to the believer, mentioned by Paul in Philippians 1:29, that is equally as glorious. The second gift is “also to suffer for His sake.” This, too, is a glorious gift. Every believer has been given this gift from God as well, but those who possess it often do not fully recognize it for what it is. Indeed, suffering for His sake similarly is God’s wonderful gift to us. Paul teaches us to embrace this second gift as well as we do the first! ISBN: 9781934251584 -- 100 page PB.

World Affairs and National Politics: And the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus
(#4250) by Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr. When did nationalism begin? What is God’s purpose for nationalism? Is the United States a Christian nation? Does any government have Favored Nation Status with God today? Should believers support Israel? What did Paul have to say about our citizenship? What is our role in relation to nations? Is our job to rid the world of evil? What should the believer’s attitude be toward earthly authority? Should all obedience to earthly magistrates be absolute? Are believers to pay their taxes? Where does voting and jury duty fit in? Why was the apostle Paul executed? These and many other questions are addressed in this groundbreaking work! ISBN: 9781934251911 -- 258 page PB $14.95
