About the Book

When pastors and evangelists preach, they try to convince you to change your lifestyle now. This is not their fault. They know that they have to do this. They have to get you close to God because time could be short. That is not equipping and preparing. Equipping and preparing means giving you the tools of the trade. That is living God’s Word and how to plan to do this. The Word teaches that pastors are to equip the servants. All that time convincing and not equipping is destroying God’s world. Jesus equipped and encouraged God’s children and changed the world. What is our excuse?

We need to divert all our mental and physical abilities to become like Jesus and begin to feel these changes in our bodies. We have to stop becoming people of behaviors. Over many generations, we have reacted to what we have seen and heard and to the pleasures the world has given us. We don’t look and listen to God anymore, because he doesn’t give us what we want when we want it. When the world sees this, it gives us what we want and we take it. We are not patient enough! God gives us what we need. As long as the world dangles that carrot in front of our faces, we will continue to pull that heavy, burdensome load of sin and pain. It is only by seeing and hearing what God does in this world to bless his children that will show us how his grace and greatness will tower above our fears.


About the Author

Rick Richards lives on an orchard in southern Ohio with his wife of forty-one years. They have two kids and two grandkids. Rick struggled for many years trying to understand God’s plan for reaching the kingdom. He knew that the Word was the answer, and God had to make it simple. Rick was saved when he was twelve, and he knew who God was, but at eighteen, he was lost and confused. He had no idea what he wanted to be. God finally sat him down the hard way and gave him two choices. Rick has been writing God’s messages for more than twenty years and never knew why until now.
