About the Book

We may experience pain, suffering, and trials in our Christian walks through life, but no one has been through more battles on their Christian walk than one man—Jesus Christ. When we are facing difficult challenges and obstacles in our lives, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can show us how to overcome and find victory in the tough times.

Meat in Due Season is an inspiring devotional guide that can help fellow believers survive the storms of life, and it is a hands-on scriptural guide with one thing in mind—the Lord and how he can help his children make it through. Author and minister Victor Kennedy shares his own life experiences and offers a window into the major trials he experienced while writing—the daily devotions often reflect a situation that literally happened on that very day.

By reflecting on God’s Word and on the example of Christ, you too can find victory in the tough times and get a greater appreciation of your times of peace. Especially with Christ’s forgiveness, you can be motivated to forgive and walk with the Lord to the peace, joy, and fulfilment that he provides along your journey.

About the Author

Dr. Victor A. Kennedy, Ph.D. (Doctor of Theology), serves as one of the pastors in the Assemblies of Jesus Christ Ministries. He has been a member and minister there for nearly 25 years. He spent 11 years conducting weekly services at the Juvenile Detention Center in Rockville, Maryland, while serving as a police officer, and detective with the Montgomery County, Maryland Police Department. He served on the Montgomery County Police Department for 29 years, and retired in 2012. He was an investigator for 18 years in the Family Crimes Division-Missing Children’s Section, and handled over 8000 missing children cases. In 2013, Dr. Kennedy started a new life chapter, and now serves as a Case Manager 2 at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, Virginia. He views his role in locating missing children as a direct parallel to his ministry; finding and recovering the lost.

Dr. Kennedy was privileged to represent the United States in international powerlifting competition. He was a 3-time Drug-Free National Powerlifting Champion (1989, 1991, 1992). He is a former American Record holder in the squat at 944 pounds. He often uses the challenges of lifting heavy weights, to illustrate spiritual lessons of life. In other words; No pain…No gain, or “You can’t quit halfway through the lift”.

Dr. Kennedy began sending out devotional text messages in 2015, as an encouragement to some of the church members. The 10 to 15 weekly recipients, quickly grew to over 100, and not long after, to over 200. The text message devotional ministry, opened the door for him to write this devotional book, “Meat in Due Season”. He stresses the main tenants of Jesus Christ’s amazing love and forgiveness for us. He frequently makes the point to forgive everyone for everything. The benchmark scripture that Dr. Kennedy weaves into his personal life, and writing is Mark 11:25-26, where Jesus says, if we do not forgive, we are not forgiven. Dr. Kennedy makes this a clear theme in his writing, teaching, and preaching.

He is a lifelong Maryland resident, and sincerely desires that all readers are strengthened and encouraged by this book.
