The command to preach the Gospel in order to win souls and make disciples of them was given by the Lord Jesus Himself. In this book Soul Winning and the Making of Disciples, Dr. Z.T. Fomum reiterate that command with emphasis on the fact that every child of God is called upon to carry out this Great Commission and anyone who fails to obey is rebelling and courting God’s disfavour. Soul winning goes hand in glove with the making of disciples because it is a chain process – those won to Him must be made into disciples and taught how to win others and make them into disciples. In this whole matter, the Spirit-filled life is a prerequisite, for Jesus asked the disciples to wait until they were clothed with power from on high. But the Spirit of God would not fall on the fearful, worldly, indulgent, lovers of ease, lovers of pleasure and compromisers. All such must repent and get right with God. We send this book out with prayer that the Lord would be pleased to use it to produce labourers in our generation to carry out the urgent task of soul winning and the making of disciples.
This book is the fifth in the series ‘‘God sex and you." From an impeccable knowledge, understanding, and mastery of the Scriptures, the author, Professor Z.T. Fomum, argues convincingly that, as the king of the household, the prophet and the priest of his wife, a man is solely responsible for the success of the marriage according to God's bidding. The need arises for the husband to put his 'self' under control, to love his wife as Christ loved the Church, to have a supreme goal and to pray and fast for her. Every man is to love his wife using God's evaluation system in the Bible. Many marriages fail because the partners are using personal, traditional, customary or modern evaluation systems. This book can make you wise onto salvaging and saving your marriage, for those who are married and providing a solid foundation for those who will marry one day.
What is a successful marriage? How do you get to a successful marriage? What's the role of the wife in ensuring a successful marriage? These questions are, among others, current and recurring questions to which Z.T. Fomum provides answers, based on the Word of God and on his long experience in marriage. Since it was sin that disturbed the first union between Adam and Eve, you should know that the health of a marriage depends on the place that God occupies in that marriage, from the very beginning. It also depends on the wife’s ability to take on the character of Christ, so as to restore the sovereignty of God in the union where man is honoured as the earthly husband. The wife can therefore orchestrate a happy marriage, provided that her heart is free from all forms of idols. Filled with the Holy Spirit, the woman subject to God will be the anchor of a successful marriage on earth. Women are not asked to submit because they are secondary beings. No! They submit because that's their responsibility, and God says so. That's what stabilises the marriage and propels it to success. This book is simply good and true. It is recommended to everyone before and after the marriage celebration.
I recently spent one month in one of the leading countries of the world whose population is said to be twenty-five percent Christians. Yes, the claim is that one out of every four people is born again. I was also told that the divorce rate was sky-rocketing. One minister even told me that the divorce rate among believers was just as high as the one among the unsaved. I was told that leading ministers of the gospel were divorcing their wives and marrying other women, while continuing to have the blessings of God on their big ministries. This set me thinking! Were they using a Bible that was different from the one I was using? Were we in different religions? I began to think seriously on the subject. I read and re-read the Scriptures. You will find in the following pages the fruit of my study.
“This book is light. If you got married in darkness, read it; it will help your marriage to come out of darkness.” God is the Author of the marriage institution. A successful marriage begins in God, continues in God, leans entirely on God and culminates in God. Marriage was also meant to be a lifelong wonderful experience; yes, a kind of "heaven on earth." However, marriage for many, has played out differently as "hell on earth." In this one-of-a-kind book, Z.T. Fomum postulates a number of factors that may help heal already broken marriages. These factors, if obeyed, will make good marriages better and better marriages best. The author expounds on the basic problems of marriage, such as: sexual matters, financial matters, the problem of children in marriage, servants in a home, as well as the thorny problem of family members. It is a book to read in order to find a lasting solution to these problems. It is a tool that the Holy Spirit can use to make your married life pleasant.
