About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Marilynn grew up in a solid Christian home, coming to Christ at the age of 7. Marilynn has been actively involved in Church life since age 10, including activities such as joining her Mom and sister in singing special numbers, choir, teaching Sunday School, leading open session, planning lessons, and more. Marilynn attended both public and private schools growing up, and attended North Island Community College on Vancouver Island and Trend College in Kelowna, obtaining certificates in receptionist work and computer repair.

Marilynn's life was turned upside down when her marriage fell apart and she had to flee. Following her divorce, God began slowly but surely re-introducing her into ministry beginning with an online website known as Tribulation Force Headquarters, patterned after the hit series, "Left Behind" by Tim LeHaye and Jerry Jenkins. God used that site to take Marilynn into online prayer meetings, Bible studies, and debates aimed at helping others become further grounded in their faith.

God sent a Pastor into her life in 2005, who a year later would be instrumental in God's hand to bring much healing to her heart, mind and emotions, and restore her to ministry in God's House. As a result of this restoration and healing, Marilynn discovered skills in sound and multimedia that she hadn't previously known about, and found herself in Rwanda for 3 weeks.

Throughout her life, Marilynn has written poetry and published a few of them in the American Poetry Anthology(two issues). She's also written numerous unpublished articles on end-time eschatology and the news, written unpublished short stories, word studies and more.

It was as she was journaling through the healing process back in 2007 and 2008 that others began coming out of the woodwork wondering how to get closer to the Heart of God. The dream for this book was birthed in 2008, but the inspiration to actually write it wouldn't come till the summer of 2011. Stacks of notes were sorted into major themes between 2008 and 2009, and a trip through the Psalms in 2009 and 2010 entered the mix as Marilynn began to pull it all together in July of 2011.

Marilynn lives with her two teenagers, cat and gerbil, in Kelowna BC Canada. Her day job sees her fix computers, program cash registers, and engage in multimedia for her church. In the evenings and on weekends she's a soundtech helping with various events through the year from funerals to workshops to concerts and weddings. Marilynn still sings in the choir, holding down the tenor section, and sang on her church's praise teams for several years as an alto or tenor substitute.

Glossary

GLOSSARY OF TERMS USED IN THIS BOOK

This list may grow and change over time. So if a term, concept or phrase isn't here, feel free to ask for it.

"Agape Love"

G26

ag-ah'-pay
From G25; love, that is, affection or benevolence;

Agape Love is the way God shows His love for mankind, selfless, kind, fierce, protective, always looking out for the good of others. 1 Corinthians 13 does a great job explaining this kind of love. It is not a love found between lovers, or between brothers. It transcends both kinds of love.


"Assuage"

From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

  1. to lessen the intensity of (something that pains or distresses) : ease
  2. pacify, quiet
  3. to put an end to by satisfying : appease, quench


"Balm of Gilead"

Jeremiah 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

Mark 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Jeremiah asks a rhetorical question in this verse that would prove prophetic of Christ's coming to earth. Balm has been known since ancient times as having healing properties. There is only one source that could heal the sins of a nation, of a people, and that is Christ Himself. This rhetorical question goes on to ask is there no Physician there? Christ said that He came to heal the sick, not the whole. The similarities between Christ's attributes, and the attributes of this ointment have earned Him the title, "Balm of Gilead". Various hymns and spirituals have been written about this.


"Castanets"

A handheld musical percussion instrument made famous by Spanish dancers.


"God's self-defined roles as Father, Husband, Friend, Brother, Master"

God the Father
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

2 Peter 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Christ our Brother
Mark 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

God as Husband
Isaiah 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Christ our Friend
John 15:14-15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. (15) Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

Christ our Master
Matthew 23:10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

John 13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

"Section Titles in Psalm 119"

Psalm 119 is unique in that it uses every letter of the Hebre Alphabet to begin the various statements in each stanza. This is only observed if read in the original language. Some Bible translations include these letters at the beginning of each stanza in this Psalm. In "Becoming the Bride of Christ: A Personal Journey", a verse from the stanza beginning with the Hebrew letter "Daleth" is quoted. "Daleth" is included in the quote as per the Bible translation used in this study.


"The Shema"

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. (6) And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: (7) And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (8) And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. (9) And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

This is part 1 of the larger prayer properly referred to as The Shema in Jewish tradition. This is the part quoted by the young ruler:

Luke 10:25-27 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? (26) He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? (27) And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. This is the same part quoted by Christ:

Mark 12:28-34 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? (29) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: (30) And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (31) And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (32) And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he: (33) And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. (34) And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.


"Word of Knowledge"

1 Corinthians 12

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. (8) For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; (9) To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; (10) To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: (11) But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

This gift is often used in Evangelical/Charismatic in a manner suggesting previously unknown knowledge of a person's or church's situation and addressing it directly. Some refer to this gift as similar to that of the Gift of Prophecy and would classify it as a prophetic gifting. This is suggested due to the way God would impart knowledge to the prophets of the Old Testament.
