Cometh the Day, Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Book

“C.S. Lewis once said that “The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” Pastor Okoro seems to have done so a lot faster by giving this book to the body of Christ.”
-Dr Joseph Takon, Pastor, RCCG City of David, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
After about 4 yours of hard work, my pride and joy, my baby, my long-awaited and much talked about book, Crushing The Devil: Your Guide to Spiritual Warfare & Victory in Christ rolls off the press today!
A special thank you to everyone who Pre-Ordered their copies of this awesome new book. You helped to give it a healthy start on the book rankings! Yesterday April 30th, it was ranked as follows on Amazon.com:
ü  #21,1117 out of about 8 million books in the general books category
ü  #36 in the Christian educational books sub-category; and
ü  #44 in the religious warfare subcategory
And not to be outdone in the United Kingdom, it was ranked as follows on Amazon.co.uk:
ü  #30,661 out of about 5 million books in the general books category  
ü  #1 in the subcategory of books on Christian miracles; and  
ü  #81 in the subcategory of books on spiritual self help
To mark this auspicious occasion, I am reproducing excerpts from the Prologue of Crushing The Devil to give you a taster of what to expect from the book:

“Whatever your station or position in life, there is always room for improvement, enhancement, and perfection. I say this with a great sense of humility. Regardless of what you are enjoying at the moment, the Lord says that he has something better for you! No matter what you have achieved, attained, or accomplished in this world, there are more challenges and blessings ahead. God says that you have stayed long enough on this mountain. It is time to press forward to take more territories and receive more trophies. There is more work to be done. There are yet more victories to be won, more successes to be achieved, more triumphs to be obtained, and more accomplishments to be made.
In Deuteronomy 1:6–8, we read that God spoke to Moses in Horeb, the mountain of the Lord. God told him that the nation of Israel had stayed long enough on that spot and that it was time to move on. That probably came as a surprise to them! Horeb was God’s mountain. It represented the presence of the Lord. The Israelites had experienced divine encounters on this mountain. Why would they want to move from this place that had come to signify God’s presence?
Like Peter on the Mount of Transfiguration, they probably wanted to build tents in Horeb and make it their permanent home. However, God had better ideas, because as good as Horeb was, it was not their final destination. It was not the Promised Land. It was at best a bus stop. They were but pilgrims at Horeb. God had something better in store for them. The only way they could get into the Promised Land and obtain God’s best was for them to move forward. There was no other way…”
