Have you ever been given information that changed how you interpret life? Have you ever been given information that was so detrimental it detoured your dreams, desires, and destiny? Have you ever been given information that made you question your spirituality? Your life, your dreams, your desires, your destiny, and your spirituality has been challenged. How do you deal with this, and how do you handle what’s been given to you?

In the book, “In 5 Days”, Zachary Wayne Lavender allows you to step into his world of eight years and five months of hemodialysis treatments, kidney transplantation, and the mighty power of God’s grace and strength that covered and protected him on this journey. Zachary opens his heart, mind, and soul and shares his experience of a realm that many are fearful, frightened, and fainthearted. His openness and candid spirit will keep the reader engaged from cover to cover.


Victim of Circumstance

Naaman was a soldier; a captain who had won many victories. And yet, he had a secret. He had a disease so serious, if anyone knew of this, he would have been excommunicated from society. Naaman was a man of valor, carrying around a stench; an odor, while leading others. What are you hiding under your armor? What are you dealing with behind closed doors?

In “Victim of Circumstance”, Zachary Wayne Lavender unlocks his soul to allow you the privilege of seeing a panoramic view of his struggle, and the power of God to bring him through it and out of it. With wisdom and power from the Holy Spirit, Zachary opens his heart and shares very deep and divulging insights into a world that many are afraid to disclose for fear of being labeled. His transparency will move you from fear to faith and challenge you to become all that God has ordained you to be.


An Audience of One-The Seriousness of Worship

When we speak or hear the word “worship”, we immediately relate the word to spiritual, religious, or Biblical connotations. We would be correct. The Bible is the only foundational teaching that gives us proof, truth, understanding, revelation, and knowledge regarding worship. For many years I thought I knew the meaning of worship. I even thought I had all the answers and why God created worship. It wasn’t until COVID-19 invaded the earth, I began to understand that God wants us to worship Him according to His Word and not man’s word.

“An Audience of One-The Seriousness of Worship” is a book, given to me by the Holy Spirit to have us exhaustively examine our worship toward Him. I was seven years old when my parents introduced me to the church and worship. I am fifty-nine years old and there are times I don’t understand worship nor do I understand what God desires of my worship. When I walked away from man’s opinions, ideas, and interpretations of what we call worship, I was able to understand that God wants us to worship Him according to His Spirit and His truth.

We’re living in evil, uncertain, and perilous times. Diseases, famines, devastations, and all sorts of destructions are plaguing the earth. God is speaking and we’re not listening nor are we responding. This is all due to our lack, deficient, incorrect, and unbiblical “worship.” We can no longer afford to execute worship according to our opinions. There’s a book filled with God’s desires concerning how we must worship Him. It’s time we open it, read it, study it, and apply it, the way God commands. In Spirit and in Truth.

A Restless Evil 

What does it mean to be restless? Restlessness is the unwillingness to remain still, quiet, and calm. Never at rest, unceasingly agitated, as in a “restless sea.” Restless describes what happens when our tongue is consistently out of control and no restraints are present and practiced. It cannot be quiet or remain still and calm. Other translations describe the tongue as “unruly.”


The book of James, also known as “James the Just,” is probably the oldest book of the New Testament.  It was written for Jewish Christians scattered among all the nations (James 1:1). James was writing to a community of believers to encourage them to continue maturing and growing in their new Christian faith. One area their new Christian faith demanded of them was the use of their tongue and the importance of their words.


A Restless Evil challenges the reader to begin taking inventory of their tongue. James wants us to know that our words are not just floating sound waves caused by air traveling through our larynx. Our words have power! Our words are so powerful that the Bible announces they can cause “life or death” (Prov. 19:14). The power of our tongue can destroy another person’s spirit in many ways. Mentally, spiritually, and in some cases, physically. A judge's or jury’s verdict can cause someone’s life to travel a path they never imagined. A weather reporter can predict the degree of weather we can experience by his words. God spoke the world into existence by the power of His words (Gen. 1:3–29).


A Restless Evil will convict, captivate, and catapult you into another dimension of discovering that your tongue is a “restless evil” full of venomous poison—challenging to tame!
