“Be a contender for the Faith, not a pretender of the Faith.”
Compiled by David Allen Rivera (2000)
There is nothing that can happen to me today that my God cannot handle. When I go to my knees, God will help me stand up to anything. And because I walk by faith, and not by sight, I know, that with God, all things are possible. I go where others fear, fight where others fall, and triumph where others fail. No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper, and when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
I bend, but I will not break. I will go on to the end. I will never give up, and I will never surrender. What doesn't kill me, will only make me stronger. I have no fear in what man can do to me, because through Christ, I am more than a conqueror. I am an overcomer and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
It is not important that I be the best, only that I do my best. Without Him I am nothing, with Him I am everything. Champions are not men who never fail, they are men who never quit. Remember, it's hard to beat a person who never gives up. Expect to win. I am a winner and I will walk in victory, because I have put my trust in God. He is my Deliverance and my Salvation. He is my Fortress and my Defense. He is my Shield and my Buckler. He is my Rock and my Strength. It is He, who fights for me, and I shall not be moved.

This is my Bible, this is my Sword.
I go into battle, with the Word of the Lord.
Spirits of darkness, demons from hell–
You have to go, you are expelled.
I do not fear an attack in the night;
For I stand in His strength, and the power of His might.
So, go ahead devil, make my day.
I’ll show you what happens, when I kneel and pray.
I am a warrior, and I’m here to proclaim:
That victory is mine– in Jesus name!
Written by David Allen Rivera (2000)
The power and majesty of God's true Word,
Is something that really needs to be heard.
Citing Scripture as your proof,
You must rightly divide the word of truth.
For you to that, the NIV you must shun–
If you doubt this warning, go to Matthew 17:21.
Be bold and be strong, walk tall in the Lord,
See demons tremble, when you're armed with the Sword.
You'll keep lost souls, from Hell's fiery flames,
Because you'll be using the Authorized King James!
Do you know where your Bible came from? Most people don't. Many people are using the same Bible they started out with as a child, not even thinking about its pedigree. Even those people using a King James Bible just assume that it’s the right one without knowing where it came from and the history behind it. The consensus is just to criticize other Bible versions because they're different than the verbiage of the King James Bible, and the reason for that is because they come from a different group of ancient texts. This book gives you a brief survey of the origin of the King James Bible, and its evolution through various English Bibles. Knowing the background of the King James Bible will give you a new appreciation for what this text actually represents, and will give you insight into why many people consider this version to be the true Word of God.
Holding Onto Your Faith in the Last Days (2013)
With a government pushing us closer and closer to Socialism in this country, and the New World Order increasing its stranglehold; it’s crunch time for Christians. Obama has said that this is no longer a Christian nation, scholars who call themselves Christians are gutting our Bible, and many churches are adopting New Age concepts like contemplative prayer in an attempt to get some kind of spirit moving in their services. This is no longer ‘business as usual.’ Trying to keep it on the road is not going to keep it on the road. The time for casual Christianity is over. There is not going to be a pre-Tribulation Rapture. So, if you think you’re going to be taken out of here– think again. The Bible talks about the “falling away,” which refers to Christians who will lose their Faith in the Last Days. Even the “very elect” have been, and are going to be deceived; so what makes you think you’ll fare any better? Now is the time to take stock of yourself and get your spiritual house in order. If you expect to endure through the Tribulation, you better be standing on a firm foundation. This book will challenge you in many ways to return to your first love, and reconnect with the God that wants you to endure. This is a controversial, no-holds-barred call-to-arms. Are you ready to fight?
A History of the New World Order
Little does this country know, it has been infiltrated by conspirators. Members of an organization, who, for over 237 years, have controlled the destiny of the United States– and are now poised for the establishment of a one-world socialist government– with them in control. It sounds unbelievable, like something out of a James Bond movie, yet, it is a fact. A fact that the media has refused to publicize, even attempting to cover it up and deny its very existence.
In 1910, a group of International Bankers secretly met on a small island off the coast of Georgia. Their plan: to formulate a program to destroy the financial structure of America. To do that, they manipulated Woodrow Wilson into the presidency; and in 1913, Wilson signed into law the Federal Reserve Act and the Federal Income Tax. In 1921, these International Bankers established the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The U.S. Government took advantage of the CFR's experience in finance and foreign affairs, and one of their study groups became part of the State Department in 1941. The secret goal of this study group was to condition the Congress, and the people of this country to accept the establishment of the United Nations (UN). The UN, initiated in 1945, does not seek to promote world peace and cooperation– it was the first step towards a one-world government that is being sold to us as a New World Order. The CFR is a subsidiary of the Round Table Organization, a group of British elitists, who are a continuation of the Order known as the Illuminati. They have been controlling world events. They control world leaders and the money that runs their countries. They can elect a President, and they can kill a President. They can shut-off the oil, they can shut-off the food– they can plunge the world into war. Even though they operate under the strictest secrecy, their goals have been known for over 2,000 years.
Henry Kissinger, the former Secretary of State, National Security Advisor and author of a number of books on foreign policy, who is a frequent guest with the PBS interviewer Charlie Rose; appeared on his show on Friday, March 23, 2007, in the first of a series of interviews with various politicians, on the future of America’s Foreign Policy and its role in the world, called A Memo to the Next President. Kissinger said (in the last few minutes of the show): “Yes, we are living in a period of tremendous turmoil now. But I think that at the end of this administration (Bush), with all its turmoil, and at the beginning of the next, we might actually witness the creation of a New World Order, because people, looking in the abyss, even in the Islamic world, have to conclude that at some point, ordered expectations must return under a different system.”
This seminal work still stands alone as the definitive reference compendium on the origin and history of the Illuminati, the New World Order, and their efforts to establish one-world government. Approaching the subject from a pragmatic point of view, this book takes you step-by-step through history to give you a concise explanation about how their plan is being accomplished. Do you want to know why, even though a new President is elected or the majority in the Congress changes, things don't seem any different? When you hear that ‘They’ are responsible for something, do you want to know who ‘They’ are? Learn about the origin and history of the New World Order, and how they are driving an unsuspecting world towards the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
A Complete Look at the Doctrine That Established the Church (2010)
This is the sequel to A Study of the Gospels which continues with the theme of considering the Bible as a single informational source, rather than a collection of disjointed writings. After the Gospels, the subsequent writings documented the work of the apostles to spread and expand upon the teachings of Jesus to establish the Church. The New Testament provides the basis for the doctrine that the Church was built upon, and it is that doctrine, and our adherence to it, that defines us as Christians. There are expectations made upon us, and many are not even aware of what they encompass. Even though we are in the world, we are not to be of the world. This book will provide some insight into the foundational doctrine that represents the sinew and muscle of the spirit man that we are to aspire to.
Reconciling the New Testament Canon (2008)
No study of the New Testament is complete without the obligatory trepidation of having to consider the four separate Gospels in regard to the life and ministry of Jesus. Their origins, subtle differences, and sequential variations have always been stumbling blocks to dealing with the accounts as a singular narrative. This book looks at the authors of the four Gospels to get some insight into the “Synoptic Problem,” and then collates and reconciles, not only the Gospels, but other relevant New Testament passages, rendering them in the language of the authorized King James version. Although it is intended as a study tool only, it is a literary work that enhances the understanding of God's Word.
UNDERSTANDING 'THE MATRIX' (2008)
Illustrated with 350 pictures
When Warner Bros. released this Sci-Fi Action movie in 1999, expectations weren't that high. That is why it was filmed in Australia, rather than the United States– to save money. However, it turned out to be one of the biggest Box Office hits that year, and became the first DVD to sell over a million copies. Shortly after it came out, parallels were made between Jesus and Neo, the film's hero. The movie was being discussed in regard to its spiritual symbolism and its veiled references to a government that is keeping its people in delusion. This book will break-down the movie scene-by-scene, examine the symbolism and themes, and analyze it from a Christian point-of-view. Now you can find out what the sermon illustrations were all about.
The Truth of Bruton Vault (2007, 2014)
Illustrated with 186 photographs & graphics
Since 1938, a small group of esoteric researchers have attempted to garner public support to force the Bruton Parish Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, VA to allow an excavation beneath the foundations of the original church in the cemetery behind their current building. They believe that a secret 300 year old Masonic vault twenty feet below the ground is protecting a priceless collection of information, artifacts, and treasure. Now, after 75 years, the truth is finally revealed. This is the only book available that covers the complete story of the Bruton Vault.
What Does the Bible Really Say About Tithing (2004, 2013)
Throughout my life, I have heard so much about tithing. It wasn't really something I thought about. I sort of took it for granted that ministers, educated in Bible School, knew what they were talking about. Then I decided to study it for myself, and to see what the Bible actually says about it. Somewhere along the line, a fairly straight-forward concept was interpreted to mean something completely different. What was meant to be an outward manifestation of an inward commitment has been turned into a regimented act of religious duty. It's time to stop tithing and to start giving.
The Pagan Origins of Our Major Holidays (1997)
When I was growing up, my Mother would take me to church nearly every day, and twice on Sunday– at least that’s what it felt like. Since I didn't have a choice in the matter, I could go and hate it; or I could go and learn something. I chose to go and get something out of it. Day after day, service after service, I heard sound fundamental Biblical teaching, and even as a child I began to realize that there was something seriously wrong with the basis for our holidays. In the early 1970s, when I was a teenager, I started keeping a research file on the origins of our holidays, because I knew that someday I would have to expose them for what they are– pagan celebrations. Holiday tradition is so deeply entrenched in our culture, with a deception so complete that it represents one of Satan’s greatest victories. You owe it to yourself to learn the truth. Find out how the observance of these holidays may be robbing you of spiritual fulfillment.
