Book Review – The Divine Romance by Gene Edwards

Book Review – The Divine Romance by Gene Edwards

The Divine Romance was such an amazing book that I read it 4 times. From front to back the book just stirred my spirit and gave me goosebumps over goosebumps.

Why I loved it

Gene Edwards has the ability to write a story in such a way that is captivating to the spirit. I am the kind of person who always read between the lines. I am always looking for some deeper spiritual meanings and this book was filled with it.

Gene Edwards were able to tell the story of the spiritual birth of God’s Bride while telling the story of creation and the birth of his people (Israel).

What the book is about

From out of the eyes of the Angels, God creates the universe and Adam and Eve. Then the story goes on to reveal that a piece of God was released in the beginning and God hid it within each and every person ever born. In a wonderful, deep and loving way Gene tells the story of how God loved Adam and Eve, how they lost the garden and became a people struggling to love Him back the way He loved them.

Then God sent himself in bodily form to die for the sins of his people. The crucifixion is told from out of the eyes of Jesus and also the Angels. The Angels were very active during the crucifixion. Gene tells how they each had an assigned duty to perform during the crucifixion and in the spiritual world they all helped to bring sin, death, law, time and everything associated with darkness to the cross. Jesus Christ concoured all things that day.

Between the lines you notice how Gene brings across his inner belief of God in us. He tells the story of salvation and how God made it possible for man to finally come into the presence of God through that piece of God which was placed within each of us right from before all things were created.

Throughout the book you are totally in awe of how much God loves you and to what lengths He went and still goes today to just be loved by us.


This book stirs my spirit and I will read it again and again. It’s one of those books every person on earth just needs to read. It will open your eyes to the spirit and to the love of God. God desires to have us as his Bride and have a living relationship with each of us. I read this book while I was in the process of learning how to spend time with God. This book gave me a great needed push in the right direction. This one and a few others who I will also review here gave me a strong foundation to build on in my spiritual growth. It is a definite must read.

This book is available from ABE books. It’s hard to find but they have it.

This book was one of those who gave the founders of The Shoe Ministries the juice to keep going. Today they have many books and study materials available to aid seekers of the Truth in Finding God.

Happy reading.

Book review – The Shack

Book review – The Shack

Before I say anything about The Shack I just want to say: I loved it!

Why I loved it:

I believe that the mind of a person can be compared to a garden. The First parable Jesus ever told was about a Sower sowing seed in different kinds of soil. (Luke 8:5) I learnt from The Shoe Ministries that the word ‘heart’ also represents the ‘mind’. They have a whole teaching on it. Jesus explained the meaning of his parable to his disciples afterwards in private and he said to them that the different kinds of soil in which the seed fell represented the state of a man’s heart!

What the Shack is about:

The story of the Shack is talking about the state of a man’s heart. A man who lost his daughter to a serial killer. A man who was struggling to make peace with what has happened and went to find God and peace in the mountains. There he met God. The way he met God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit was completely unconventional and very amusing at times. He learnt that his heart garden was filled with thorns and the Holy Spirit helped him to work in his heart garden. Then Jesus helped him to believe again and they walked on water. The presence of God gave him rest and peace and in the end he was led by God to find the body of his daughter and they buried her body in a wooden box which was built by Jesus the carpenter, in the soft and prepared soil of his heart garden which was prepared by the Holy Spirit.

This man found peace in a new whole heart which was no longer filled with thorns and rocks but soft prepared soil in which he was able to sow good seed and God could provide for him. After his experience he was able to patch things up with his wife and kids and be a blessing to other people.
You can get the book from ABE books. They specialize in new, second hand and rare books. You can find just about anything on their site. - Passion for books


This book blessed me and I hope it will bless everyone who reads it or watches the movie they made.

I did not want to give away too much, it is best that you should read or watch it yourself.

Happy reading! Feel free to leave your comments!

ASUS wireless Router Review

I have owned a few wireless routers so far. I know everyone always buy’s the Lynksys routers and I have had a few of them too but recently I bought an ASUS 3 in 1 N300 wireless router. (RT-N12HP_B1 model) Let me tell you about my experience and my recommendation.

What is a high power router?

The one I bought is a high power router. I needed something with a longer range. High power means the antennas are a bit longer than the usual and the router projects signal further. We have rock walls and the signal struggles to get through, so the high power antennas helps to project the signal through the rock walls.

What does 3 in 1 mean?

This particular ASUS router has three modes.

Router mode, Repeater mode and Access Point Mode.

I find that using a three in one router is more beneficial as our environment and our internet needs may change from time to time. Instead of having a single mode router this one can give you three different ways of accessing the internet by either connecting directly through your modem or by connecting wireless and therefore extending the range of your internet or network further and stronger.

As the picture shows you can see that Router mode means the Ethernet Cable or your modem connects to the router and your devices connects to the internet by connecting wirelessly to the router.

Repeater mode means the router connects to your existing router wireless and then broadcasts the signal to your devices. This helps improve or extend the signal throughout your environment.

Access Point mode means your router is connected through a wire to your existing router and then broadcasting signal to your devices. This is useful if you need to extend your network to another building for example.

Really Easy setup

I was surprised by the easy setup. I am in no way an expert when it comes to networks and I was really not feeling up to even trying to get this thing to work. I have always had someone with more knowledge help me get the routers connected. So I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the setup was. Even I could do it!
I downloaded the ASUS router App on my phone, plugged the Ethernet Cable into the router, switched it on and followed the on screen instruction from my phone. It was very easy. When you need to set your router up for straight Router mode you do not need any other help other that the ASUS app.

I however needed to set up my router as an Access Point. Therefore, I found the web interface easier to use.

I used the ASUS app to find the IP address of the router and then I typed the IP into my web browser to access the web interface. In my case my router IP address was

As in the image you can see what the web interface looks like. I was able to set up the AP mode by just following the onscreen instructions.


This is what the ASUS app allows you to control

  • Gives you easy setup
  • You are able to keep an eye on both your network traffic and your connected devices anywhere and at any time .
  • Manage internet activity – Take full command of your network by controlling who can access the internet, and allocating the bandwidth for each device. You’re even able to manage how your kids use the internet, and prevent unauthorized users from hogging network resources.
  • Create temporary WiFi access for your guests without sharing your password.
  • The App helps diagnose your security settings by scanning for
    • Password Strength
    • Infected Device Prevention
    • Vulnerability Protection
    • Malicious Site Blocking
  • Maximize bandwidth to gaming devices for optimal performance

My recommendation:

Based on my experience with this router I will definitely recommend the ASUS wireless router. I was impressed by how easy it was to use. So far the router has been up and running for 3 months and I only rebooted it once in that time. I think it is a very reliable router and the range I get out of it is very good. The Asus routers are also very cheap compared to other brands. This particular one which I bought was just $30 from Amazon. Feel free to look for other ASUS wireless routers and modems.  Below is a list of models who all supports the easy to use ASUS App. Amazon stocks quite a few ASUS routers.
