WHO IS JESUS is the title of a book Philip Powell hopes to have ready for the CWM-INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE – September 14 to 20, 2014. The Conference will be held in the luxurious Twin Towns Tweed Heads Gold Coast (QLD-NSW) RESORT. Listen to the introductory and welcome video listed herein.
From early childhood I have been intrigued with the question of my title, ‘Who is Jesus?’I am now in my 76th year, and diagnosed with prostate cancer and other physical ailments, some of which were debilitating and the treatment enervating in the extreme. One was designated bursitis, which was a recurring and at times excruciating affliction in my left upper arm and shoulder. On Thursday January 23, 2014 – I arranged a cortisone injection, which brought temporary relief for about a day and a half then the pain returned with a vengeance. On further investigation it was discovered that the pain was associated with the prostate cancer which had spread to the shoulder blade. I have received Radio Therapy (not chemo-therapy) treatment which has helped to reduce the pain and am now facing the future with confidence in the ability and goodness of the Lord.
So what has this personal testimonial got to do with this book? Am I seeking sympathy? No, definitely not. I am conscious of the fact that many people of my vintage and less, suffer more than me. No-one in this vale of tears is immune from suffering no matter how loudly the “word of faith” crowd protest otherwise; so why this book and why now?
