The first reason is the example of the Lord. He demanded that the disciples forsake all to follow him from the beginning and they left all and followed Him. About total separation from sin, the Word of God teaches that all those who practise sin are lost and the Lord always took for granted that all who followed Him had said their final good-bye to all known sin. The Lord did not allow the rich young ruler to make a superficial commitment and follow Him in order to have time to think about paying the whole cost. He brought him face to face with the whole cost at once and the man made the choice of keeping his money and keeping himself away from the kingdom of God. He bid men count the cost.

Give a copy to your friend, spouse, neighbor, colleague, parents, etc. and they will be blessed.
The supreme challenge of our time is the effective presentation of Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and the building up of the church which is His Bride. This is a difficult and demanding task. If we are to achieve our objectives, then a wholehearted commitment is absolutely necessary.
At conversion, God puts His Holy Spirit within us. This sealing of the believer with the Holy Spirit constitutes a mark of ownership. If our lives are consecrated to the Lord, then our property has to be consecrated as well. We cannot consecrate our lives and leave our property unconsecrated.
If property is to become available for the Lord, it must be delivered from self: from that tyranny that wants to own it, control it and keep it for the use and worship of the self. Therefore, the Holy Spirit must sever our property from the world and from self.
The world was not only judged. It was condemned. It has no future whatsoever. The believer cannot truly invest in this world. We send this book out with prayer that it should stir the hearts of those who belong to the Lord to acquire permanent riches by investing in the Lord and in His gospel here and now.
Read it and let your life be transformed!
As clearly outlined in the book, Professor Fomum's basic message has not changed. From the start, it was the power of a man’s all. Today it is still the power of a man’s all.
The different topics covered in this book are:
- the price to pay to be a disciple,
- the foundations of the disciple's life,
- the purpose of the disciple's life,
- the disciple's sufferings, and
- the disciple's reward.
Read this book and you will be challenged and encouraged to follow the Lord whole heartedly.
Someone may not be able to find time to pray for one hour in a stretch in the morning, afternoon or evening. For others if they found time, they might not know how to use it. Each of these groups of people can use the suggested programme for fifteen minute retreats that are in the following pages and find their prayer life transformed.
By having four fifteen minute retreats a day, one has actually spent one hour before God. Many people will find that they accomplish far more in four retreats of fifteen minutes than in one retreat of one hour. The advantage of fifteen minute retreats is that even people who cannot concentrate for long periods are able to concentrate for fifteen minutes and thereby pray effectively. Also, the retreat is over before the person is bored. The person thus looks forward to the next retreat. There is the additional advantage that most believers have enough to talk to the Lord about in fifteen minutes. This solves the problem of people who are confused about what to say to God for a long period of time. Then, even the busiest people have time for this retreat, and children too.
It is hoped that the fifteen minute retreats will help the one who retreats to enjoy the Lord so much that he will find that the fifteen minute period is insufficient for his communion with the Lord and therefore he must go on longer retreats. This is good. It is excellent.
It is an in-depth study of chapters 6 and 7 of the epistle to the Romans. The believer is saved from the consequence of sin and delivered from the power of sin. Therefore, he can experience deliverance from sin and the power of sin on a daily basis.
This book answers two fundamental questions and, by extension, all those related to them:
How did we become sinners?
How can we get out of Adam's nature?
How can we become a slave to righteousness?
How can we experience walking by the Spirit?
It is also in this book that you can discover the spiritual meaning of the deliverance of the law.
It is a true and practical guide in sanctification. May the Lord bless you in its reading.
- What are its causes and manifestations?
- What are its consequences?
- How can one be delivered from the grip of laziness?
This book, by Professor Zacharias Tanee Fomum, will help you to find answers to these questions, but much more to release the full potential that God gave you, in order to make it available to the kingdom of God.
According to the author, this book is a strong message to all lazy people who will no longer be lazy after reading and obeying its contents.
Inspired by the Parable of the Sower, Professor Fomum teaches on the different types of hearts. There is
- the wayside heart,
- the stony heart,
- the thorny heart, and
- the good heart which is symbolised by good soil.
The author identifies the importance of the heart and gives the characteristics of each heart, while showing that each man is responsible for the type of heart he has. To have the heart that is good soil, ready for planting, you have to overthrow the self in you and rid your heart of all forms of idols.
Why does the author dwell so much on the heart as soil? Because
- it is good soil that bears good fruit.
- It is good soil that bears great fruit.
- It is good soil that bears abundant fruit.
That's why he goes on to speak extensively about ways to bear fruit in abundance.
This book is to be read through and studied for a radical change of heart and a fruitful evangelism ministry, because as the author says, ‘‘It is ripe fruit that produces ripe fruit!"
About this book, Dr. Lester Sumrall in his Forward writes:
"Many have written concerning fasting. Few have experienced extended fasts several times per year from forty-eight hours per week and from twenty-one to forty days' duration with such results as Dr. Fomum and believers in some of the Churches in Cameroon....
The reader of The Ministry of Fasting is caught up in the reality of fasting unto the Lord....
Along with Bible characters, the Church fathers from Savanarola, Martin Luther, Knox, Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, and modern Church leaders, both living and dead, are cited as exemplary among those who valued fasting unto victory in Christ....
Dr. Fomum explores
- the aspects of fasting,
- interference of spirits, and
- the different reasons to fast:
- for deliverance,
- for ministering unto the Lord, and
- for mourning...
He helps one with
- preparations for fasting,
- how to intercede while fasting,
- how to break a fast,
- what to do after a fast, and
- how to maintain the results of a fast.
The book is written, as the others of his books, in a teachable, expanded outline format. The earnest intercessor and serious spiritual warrior will want to read this book."
In fact, even if you fear fasting, this book will help you to start this vital Christian discipline.
God’s purposes in the New Covenant are tied to people who are filled with the Holy Spirit. The greatest need of the hour and the Lord’s perfect will is that each believer be filled with the Holy Spirit and filled with power. Although He is waiting anxiously to do this, He can only fill those who are empty. Those who are filled with sin, self, the love of the world or the love of the things that are in the world cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit, because they are already filled with the wrong thing or with the wrong things.
In this small practical book, Prof. Fomum presents the seven heart conditions, together with a well-thought-out list of the things that often fill the hearts of people and so hinder them from being filled with the Holy Spirit.
We encourage you to prayerfully go through the list, acknowledging, hating, uprooting from the heart and carrying out the necessary restitution once the illegal presence of any of the listed things is identified in your life.
Immediately you present a pure heart to God, He will fill it with the Holy Spirit. He is eagerly waiting to fill you. Empty yourself without delay.
The burden he is labouring to discharge is to bring every believer to develop an ever-increasing life of prayer, with the aim of destroying the devil’s plans and purposes. Throughout his message, it emerges that to wage spiritual warfare, you must:
1) Identify your enemy;
2) Build a hedge of protection around you and around everything that belongs to you. That should be in addition to the hedge already built by God.
3) For more range in combat, you've got to draft in a great number of people of quality;
4) You and them have got to be united for the same purpose;
5) Do not omit the role of angels in combat.
6) Finally, know that whoever engages in combat must persevere until the end. Don't ever give up till victory.
This book is a very practical and precious work meant to lead you to realise, as a believer, that you must pray or perish.
Read it now and act!
Especially during the last days, you experience numbness in hands, muscle contraction, waist pain, pain on the knees or joints. This is evidence of inadequate preparation in calcium intake. It is advisable to feed on calcium-content foods like carrots, dry fish, garden eggs, various nuts while preparing for a fast. However, if you feel these symptoms, take calcium tablets that are chewable or can easily be diluted in water.
‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
It is a revival book whose ultimate goal is to enable those who experience backsliding in their intimate communion with God, to find the necessary advice, wisdom and motivation that would enable them to succeed in returning to God. It creates both the desire and the challenge, in the backslider, for an effective return to God.
It exposes ways and means to know
- revival in the personal prayer life,
- revival in the personal fasting life,
- revival in the personal use of time, as well as
- revival in one's attitude towards sin.
This book will lead to real revival and restoration. The author, Z.T. Fomum, gives a series of thoughts on prayer, fasting, sin, righteousness and the use of time. You will also find in it the crippling marks of a backslider.
Z.T. Fomum, the author, defines time as one of the most precious gifts that God has given to man.
Since time is a gift from the Lord, the author is convinced that its correct use cannot be separated from a deep knowledge of God and His will.
Decent use of time requires careful planning through the development of a timetable that devotes the best hours to the priority things of life, in accordance with the revelation of God and the work that the Lord entrusts to us.
By an analytical demonstration with estimated figures, the author convinces us of the dangers which the loss of time involves, even in the smallest proportions, both in time and in eternity. In this book, you will find some accounts of the use of time of the author and others.
Deeply rooted in the Bible, The Way of Victorious Praying by Zacharias Tanee Fomum is a textbook both on the theory and the practice of prayer.
From the beginning, Zacharias Tanee Fomum brings the reader into the prayer life of the Lord Jesus and outlines the devil attacks on prayer and the believer's way of victory. Further on he explores topics like:
- Praise and thanksgiving
- Praying with the Spirit
The book ends with a teaching on how to pray for the local church and gives some practical issues with regards to prayer.
AS such. The Way of Victorious Praying is a foundational book on prayer. All the other books on prayer written by Z.T Fomum are an expansion of one or other aspect handled in this book.
The Way of Victorious Praying is a manual of prayer, a guide to the ordinary individual in his search for truth and his need to establish contact with God. It will inspire and instruct believers, churches, prayer and intercessory groups in the spiritual art of prayer.
Read this book and you will be challenged not only to pray but to become a man or woman of prayer. And then, you will rejoice to see your prayer answered.
May the Lord bless you as you obey the message!
After the new birth, a man’s spirituality is not measured by his capacity to preach great sermons, to cast out demons, or to heal the sick. Such capacities could be the manifestation of spiritual gifts, which are received from God, regardless of who the person is. Such a person may
• be totally unrecognizable at the slightest provocation,
• be selfish and self-centred,
• love sin,
• hide or blame others for his mistakes and failures,
• get worried when faced with the least problem, and act before he has prayed about it,
This talks of an unbroken life in which, unfortunately, most believers who truly confess the name of the Lord, find themselves several years after conversion.
The purpose of God in the new creation is to produce people who attain spiritual maturity, by quickly attaining the stature of broken men and women. God does it through the cross, to break and destroy the natural man and, by the work of the Holy Spirit, to build the character of Christ in the believer. Brokenness therefore depends on the degree to which a person has allowed the cross and the Holy Spirit to work in him.
Taking Jacob’s life as a basis, the author shows how one can go from the state of the natural man (unconverted) to that of a carnal believer (unbroken), then to that of a spiritual believer (broken); that is, a life in which the believer
belongs totally to the Lord,
allows free access to God in the minutest details of his life,
no longer presents any obstacle to God.
Read this book. It will challenge you and help you to make progress on the pathway of brokenness, to such an extent that you will soon be able to confess with apostle Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”
