If we want God to answer our prayers in a specific way, we need to ask Him specifically for what we desire. God blesses specific prayers! In this teaching, Jamie Buckingham shares the Old Testament story of Hannah, a barren woman who prayed fervently for a child–and not just a child, but specifically, a son. God blessed her specific prayer with the birth of Samuel, who she dedicated back to the service of the Lord. Do you have a specific prayer? God wants to answer it! The key is to come to Him with a childlike heart, an open ear, and a willingness to obey whatever He tells you.
Daniel was a man of great patience. When faced with persecution, hardship, and temptation, he refused to take the easy way out. Instead, he remained faithful to God and waited patiently for God to rescue him in His own time and in His own way. In this teaching, Jamie Buckingham uses Daniel’s example, as well as trials and lessons from his own life, to encourage us to be faithful and to have patience in difficult times. God delivered Daniel from the lion’s den. He will deliver us too. Are you patient? Will you allow God to do His work in you in His timing? Remember, God is never in a hurry. He has plans for your life—and if you trust Him enough to wait, He will bring them to pass.
There is a lot of shaking going on in the body of Christ. It is a deep shaking that may feel like our roots are being pulling out. If that is happening to you, ask yourself this question: Who is doing the shaking? Is it God or is it Satan attacking? Remember, as a Christian, even if it is the Devil, God controls the work of Satan as it affects the lives of His followers. If you are a child of God and have committed yourself to the Lord then you are under His control and His protection. When God moves in your life, change will occur. The question is: will you cooperate with God or will He have to shake you up a bit? Change calls for us to move out of the way of pride and into the way of humility. And if you are not willing to humble yourself on your own, to change your ways, God will change you, and it may not be comfortable or painless, but it will always be for your good and for His glory.
Do you have a desire in your heart—a deep longing that you hope for day after day, year after year? Do you have some sort of unrequited yearning that is burning deep within you, something that you want very badly to happen, but it hasn’t come about yet? I believe there is within most of us a desire or a dream or a vision that we hope will one day come to pass. I firmly believe that God wants you to have the desire of your heart, whatever it is. But I also believe that there is a godly way by which your desire will come to pass. Simply wishing for it is not enough. There is more to it than that.
Does criticism devastate you? Does it make you feel rejected, despondent, even angry? If so, this book could change your life. In this book you will hear the Word of God. As it soaks into your mind, it will bring you to that place that you will know who you really are in Christ, that you can stand up against that which is wrong, and you can have the strength to receive the kind of correction God wants you to have. There are two kinds of criticism and two kinds only: that which is justified and that which is not justified. The wise person knows how to discern between the two.
The story of Hosea and Gomer is probably the greatest love story in all the Bible because it is a real-life demonstration of the love God has for His people. Hosea took Gomer, a town prostitute, to be his wife. When she eventually left him, Hosea bought her back from the threat of slavery and death. His actions demonstrated how God gave his most beloved Son, to purchase us and save us from the bonds of sin. This extraordinary story transcends the years. Jamie Buckingham is a master story teller and this is a story he tells in a manner no one else can.
What it is really like to be inside the kingdom of God? Is everyone just lounging around all day, not working hard, relaxing? What Jamie Buckingham describes in this booklet is probably far different from your own version of what being in God’s kingdom is all about. Jamie answers the question: Why is my life still so hard even though I have been a follower of Jesus for so long?
In this booklet, Jamie reviews the 10 recorded instances in the Bible where real people were actually raised from the dead. Then he lists the 3 specific things that must be in place for that to actually occur, things that were common to each of the occurrences in the biblical accounts of people being raised from the dead.
Healing is at the very heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord manifested Himself—He made Himself known—through healing. Why healing? Because that is where God’s heart is. God’s heart is toward suffering people. Jesus didn’t countermand medicine. He just went beyond it. This book, taken from a teaching by Jamie Buckingham, explains why the healing power of Jesus is still relevant for our lives today.
There is a curtain on the invisible world. Yet, what is beyond is marvelous. Angels surround us, prepared to fight our spiritual battles. All we need to do is to pray in order to activate them to fight on our behalf. Prayer is the key to activating angels.
This full-length book is written so the church can be prepared for the end times, the days before the return of Christ. Chapters include True and False Teachers, Dominion, Deception, Inner Healing and Spiritual Gifts. Told in a way only Jamie can tell, this is a book for all Christians.
We all face death. The scriptures say life is a mist that appears for a little while then vanishes. Life as a Christian is a process of not only knowing how to live, but learning how to be ready to die.
Do you want to hear from God, but you have trouble discerning His voice in your life? Using Hebrews 10 as his text, Jamie provides essential principles addressing the question of being able to hear God, and have Him hear you as well.
This booklet is taken directly from Jamie’s last sermon, preached to the Tabernacle Church in Melbourne, Florida in January 1992, less than a month before his death. “We simply can’t afford to quit,” Jamie stated. “We must finish the work the Lord has given us, so we can be complete…All you have to do is endure your situation. Persevere. And when God knows you’ve reached your limit, He will step forward with His faithfulness and bring you through.”
In this booklet, Jamie Buckingham shares how the weights in this life, like the weights on a grandfather clock, keep us moving in the right direction. Without them, we may stop seeking God’s guidance, or just stop altogether.
Jamie pokes fun at himself and our cultural definitions of beauty as he asks the question: How does God see us? Jamie introduces us to Leah, a woman in the Bible who was not only unattractive; she also had a beautiful sister—and they were both married to the same man! This is the story of how Leah came to know God’s acceptance and love, despite her less-than-perfect outward appearance and her always-second-place social status. It’s also a story about you and me and the rest of the ugly people in the world—and the overriding truth that God looks beyond our physical imperfections to see our heart.
The blessed tree, like a godly person, will not bear fruit all year long. There are seasons for bearing fruit and there are seasons for not bearing fruit. In those barren seasons we should not be discouraged. God is still working on and through us, and we will produce fruit in the proper time. But we must remember, even when our branches are barren and the rains don’t fall, to keep our roots dug deep into the reservoir of Living Water.
It is God’s plan for us all to grow old and to go through physical changes. But it is not God’s purpose for us to grow old and stop serving Him. Regardless of how old you are or how you feel physically, God has a plan for your life. Regardless of age, you have high value to God.
“If we truly believe God is in charge, we might as well relax and enjoy life.” This is the theme of this booklet as Jamie gets personal with fellow pastors as well as with himself. This book will make you laugh, and think, and perhaps allow you to enjoy life just a little more than before.
It is difficult for many of us today to imagine living in a nation without religious freedoms. But that is what Habakkuk had to endure. When he took his complaints to God, you might be surprised at God’s response.
Jamie shares what we as Christians are to do when it turns out that God’s plan for our life is different from our hopes or our dreams.
