Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry - poems that are intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word.
This poem describes how God's blessing and anointing works as we shift from one paradigm to another

Shifting Paradigms
By Ken L Birks

From glory to glory we come into the presence of the Lord
New thought patterns are brought into the captivity of His Word.
Leaving more of self behind as paradigms shift, we transform.
Old thought patterns give way to new liberties in the Spirit.
With faith we anticipate and believe for what's next without limit.

With new ways and habits established, fruit begins to appear.
Former customs and practices based on false premises, disappear.
With each paradigm shift comes greater anointing to press forward.
With anointing, strongholds of the past are destroyed without agitation.
New strongholds of righteousness appear reinforcing the foundation.

With each paradigm shift we are taken further into destiny.
From glory to glory, gifting and talents come forth with clarity.
Going forth soberly, ministry is birthed with the measure given.
With gifts differing in proportion to faith, vision and purpose release.
Faithfully ministering in God’s ability, His glory and presence increase.

As new paradigms take hold, pieces of the puzzle come together.
The picture is clearer with distinction of each piece’s importance.
Value is seen in one another as each piece finds its place.
Esteeming other pieces according to their value, glory is released.
The body of Christ begins to emerge as the Spirit breathes life.

With the ministry of the Spirit now glorious, righteousness exceeds.
As we see ourselves transformed into His image, He leads.
As paradigms shift, we behold the glory of the Lord in a mirror.
When handling others as belonging to Christ, His presence is there.
From glory to glory, transformation of His body becomes clearer.

The Journey:
Discovering the Invisible Path

By Kenneth L. Birks

The Journey by Ken BirksThe goal of this book is to give you, as a Christian, a glimpse into the path God has purposed for your life and to help you seize your destiny and purpose. In doing so, you will be able to live the role created for you. Whether you are just starting out on your journey, anywhere in the middle, or have become detoured and lost your way, this practical guidebook will help shine the light on the invisible path that not only leads to God’s goodness and experiencing His kingdom within, but also to the greatest adventure of your life.

Comment: The Journey is your GPS for the Bible. The problem is solved. The riddle is deciphered. Like a trusted guide, Ken makes complex concepts simple and masterfully unpacks the Bible’s greatest mysteries. He provides a sure foundation upon which to build a lifetime of insight.—Francis Anfuso
