In the last few years, Junior has completed several books he began working on years ago when he first began speaking. Many years, many experiences, and many hours of study later, some of those books are finally complete and available for purchase.
Four Rivers Flowed from Eden: Who God Is, What He is Like, What it Means
Education & Discipleship
Fourrivers flowed from Eden and watered the entire earth (Gen 2:10). Paul says, "For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes…have been made intelligible and clearly discernible in and through the things that have been made…" (Ro 1:20 AMP). These four rivers, then, have a declaration about their Creator: He has four main attributes. As these four rivers watered the entire earth of that time, so also God's four attributes provide or offer life to all humanity. Did not Jesus say "rivers of life"would flow and overflow in any person who believed in Him, watering every corner of their life? These rivers flowed from a place called Eden, which means in Hebrew "delight or pleasure." God Himself is delight or pleasure (Ps 16:11). Eden is a fitting illustration of God. Just as these four rivers flowed from a place called Pleasure, so also God's four attributes are outflows or expressions of the perfect pleasure that He is. We find the purest, most pristine happiness by drinking in our Creator's four attributes daily and for the rest of our lives.
Psalm 36:8 (NKJV): ...You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
New Testament Prophecy: Healthy, Mature Prophetic Ministry in the Church
Education, Ministry, & Leadership
The validity or nature of contemporary prophecy is a struggle in today's born-again, Bible-believing community. Commendable, responsible Christians are situated on various points of the opinion spectrum. Prophecy is indeed a subject with significant electricity. Speaking for Yahweh Elohim, explicitly or implicitly, is a matter of daunting voltage. Christians of different generations and different geographies have had variable attitudes toward prophecy. However, almost all Christians in two thousand years of church history have believed in some level of Spirit-guided speech. It is simply too common and too recognizable among born-again worshipers. Junior deSouza Ministries unequivocally and unapologetically celebrates and practices New Testament prophetic ministry. This resource is devoted to educating and equipping the body of Christ, the prophetically-oriented in particular, on this important ministerial apparatus. May you read the following with an open Bible and open heart under an open heaven.
Think of all the First Coming signs: a pregnant virgin (Isa 7:14), a birth in Bethlehem (Mic 5:2), a devastating infanticide (Jer 31:15), a mysterious retreat in Egypt (Hos 11:1), an Elijah-esque prophet in the desert (Isa 40:3), and so on. We often take these fait accompli signs for granted, not realizing we are under an identically grave responsibility to recognize the prophetic precursors to the Second Coming. We are never to be concerned with a specific date of Jesus' return. Instead, the Spirit has provided numerous scriptures with verifiable signs to signal the final generations of human history to His overcoming remnant. Perhaps the most important of these is Daniel 2, Nebuchadnezzar's dream of a strange statue.
Humanity as we know it is fundamentally unsustainable. The century that brought us the most unprecedented advances in intelligence and technology also brought us the most destructive global conflicts in human history...with new ones looming on the horizon. Jesus said this present age of civilization would end, and not millions of years down the road when the sun burns out or burns us up. He gave numerous indicators that would mark that "fourth quarter" generation. He even said the ekklesia of that generation would recognize itself. Could we be that generation? Maybe. In the last hundred-plus years, so many eschatological signs have been and are being fulfilled that we no longer have to look for them, we have to list them! This book does just that: organizes and simplifies the eight categories of signs found throughout the totality of the Old and New Testaments, and their easy-to-verify fulfillments. For those of you turned off by endtimes emotionalism, foolish date-setting, and seemingly irrelevant Bible prophecies, this book will breathe a fresh apocalyptic rationalism into your worldview.
