Summer Update and DVD Special

31 years ago I was driving with a hangover and listening to Bill Gillham teach on Rom. 6 that we are “dead to sin and freed from it.”  31 years of freedom from addiction and what is the one thing you must know to be free? It is so simple and basic that most Christians miss it. You must know and believe who you are in Christ. Why do most miss it? They think there is something they must do. What has to happen? They must know that there is nothing to do and “apart from Christ they can do nothing” (John 15:5). The Apostle Paul summed it up in 2 Cor. 1:8, 9 We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead”. No one gets free until they experience that. There is nothing to do. It has already been done! IT IS FINISHED!!! What did I do 31 years ago? NOTHING!

Our ministry focus is on the webinars. We are conducting four webinars a year. We have completed the first two and will do two more beginning in the fall. We will begin with the Helping Others Overcome Addictions based on the book by the same name. The first seven chapters of the book cover the problem of addiction, how people become addicted and God’s answer for addiction which is freedom in Christ and the 8th chapter is what to do and stop doing to help others overcome addictions. It is eight sessions and we will follow it with the Freedom From Addictive Behaviors Basic Webinar based on the Conference but it has been shortened to six sessions.

We are now offering the Freedom From Addictive Behaviors Conference DVD set for $10 with no shipping costs. Send me your mailing address and I will send it to you with an invoice. There are nine messages including my testimony of freedom and Julia’s testimony of freedom from codependency. There is also a Conference Manual that goes with the Conference DVD’s and a Leader’s Guide with discussion questions for use in a group setting. Both can be downloaded for free from a link on our website at the “Online Store”

The summer is always a challenge for us who live on support. If you could help with a gift it would be greatly appreciated. 3 ways to do it:

1) Make a check out for your tax deductible gift to Grace Walk Ministries and send it to them at Grace Walk Ministries PO Box 817 St. Petersburg, Florida 33731. Be sure and enclose a note in the envelope indicating it is for Mike Quarles.

2) go to the web site at www.gracewalk.org  and click on “Donate” in the top menu. Click “Online Donation Form” and fill out the form including the amount; in the FUND drop down box designate your donation for Mike Quarles (if no designation, it goes in the general funds). Follow the form prompts to complete your transaction. Again, this is a tax deductible method of giving.

3) If you do not require a tax deduction, you can simply send a direct donation via PayPal to freedfrom@bellsouth.net.

Freedom From Addictive Behaviors Webinar – March 5

Freedom From Addictive Behaviors webinar series Begins Tuesday, March 5!

If you’re tired of trying so hard…this webinar is for you!

What do you do to get free? NOTHING! 3O years ago Mike was driving along with a hangover after his wife had kicked him out of the house. He was listening to Bill Gillham teach on Rom. 6. Bill said that it says you are dead to sin. Mike believed the truth and was freed from addiction. What did he do? NOTHING! He had a hangover and was driving in a car. BUT he has been free from addiction for 30 years!!!

Six Tuesday evenings, beginning March 5, 2019. 8:00PM Eastern; 7:00PM Central

This event is free. Voluntary donations can be made here.

Register now!  https://my.demio.com/ref/nc57xNwHiUKIHjcC

The Freedom from Addictive Behaviors Webinar is based on the truth that God’s Answer for addiction is freedom in Christ. Mike Quarles and Vernon Terrell teach the webinar. Mike is the Director of Grace Walk Recovery Ministry and has co-authored five books on freedom from addiction. Vernon has worked in the corporate world for 30 years and ministered for over 34 years. God has already provided freedom for every believer through the finished work of Christ. “It is for freedom that Christ set you free” (Gal. 5:1). Scripture is clear that every Christian has died to sin and been freed from (Rom. 6:6–7). So the answer is not working steps, programs, or observing spiritual disciplines, but faith in what God has done. The key to freedom is to know your identity in Christ and that He is your life, but this has been largely hidden from Christians. Mike had been a Christian for 18 years, graduated from seminary and served in the pastorate but was hopelessly addicted to alcohol. This webinar is dedicated to the belief that God’s answer for addiction is freedom and when a person understands who they are in Christ, he will know “that when the Son sets you free, you are free indeed (John 8:36). The six sessions are:

1) The Strange Odyssey of a Legalistic Preacher who became a Drunk, Discovered Grace and Was Set Free – Mike Quarles testimony of how he found freedom from addiction
2) The Problem of Addiction – A biblical understanding of the root problem of addiction and how it develops
3) The Price of Freedom – The requirement for experiencing freedom and why so few are experiencing it
4) God’s Answer for Addictive Behavior – Understanding God’s clear, complete and definitive answer for addiction
5) Strongholds of Addiction – The lies we believe that keep us in bondage of addiction
6) The Most Liberating Thing You Will Ever Do – Forgiveness, an act of spiritual warfare

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Simply Profound Faith

You and I Are the Dirty, Smelly Manger in Which Christ Was Born

Now don’t be offended as that is the best news that you will ever hear. If you are like me and struggled with an addictive behavior for eight years or really even if you have not the vast majority of us know how far we have fallen short of being a decent husband, wife, parent, sibling, etc. Not to mention being a good Christian. If not, then this is not for you, although I believe that most of us are in that category or will be there sooner or later. As Jesus said “Apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). The apostle Paul put it like this: “For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate (Rom 7:15) and “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?”. It would appear that Paul in a state of brokenness and despair found the answer he was looking for when he said, “Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Rom. 7:25).

But what does he mean “through Jesus Christ our Lord”? It is so basic and simple that most Christians miss it. Does he mean only those who are obeying Him as Lord? NO, he is not exhorting you to obey but simply pointing to who you are in Christ. Faith is primarily recognition. It is recognition and belief in who you are in Christ and what you have in Christ. It is so simple that it can be summed up in one verse, I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Gal. 2:20). Now if that is true, the following is also:

1. The old sin-loving sinner that you have been trying to shape up and stop sinning is dead and gone and the sooner you stop trying to shape up the old dead self, the sooner you will realize that you do not have to.

2. Christ is your life (Col. 3:4) and is living in you and if that’s true, then

3. You are one spirit with him (1 Cor. 6:17) and so you are dead to sin and freed from it (Rom. 6:6, 7).

Now if the above is true you are free from all bondage, sin and addictive behaviors. Now I am not saying that you don’t sin, or have addictive behaviors, etc. All of us will struggle with those until we believe the truth that sets free ( John 8:32). But you need to believe in your heart for it to be true in your life. The first step is to realize that all the advice of well meaning people (pastors, counselors, and friends) of what to do will not set you free, but only keep you in bondage. WHY? Because there is NOTHING to do. Jesus has already done it. IT IS FINISHED!!!

It took me 51 years of my life, 3 years in seminary and 18 years as a Christian before I believed the “truth that sets free”. That was 30 years ago this past October. Now I have not lived a perfect life as my wife would gladly confirm, but Praise God I have been freed from addiction for 30 years.

A year after I found my freedom I wrote a little booklet “The Key to the Victorious Christian Life and published it as a ebook on Amazon. You can get it for free through Dec. 16. Just go to http://amazon.com and type in “key to the victorious.”

Christmas Season Update

 But when the time had fully come God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law that we might receive the full rights of sons (Gal. 4:4, 5)…The glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Col. 1:27)

Health crisis

One day in July, I begin having symptoms of a stroke. Julia called 911 and I was soon in the ER at Northside Hospital.  After numerous tests, the Doctor said they found blood on my brain. I told him I had a bad fall at home in May. He thought that might have caused this now.  He recommended surgery where they drill a hole in your head and go in and drain the blood, but Julia and I said we would go home and pray for guidance. We got a lot of prayer support from our church, family and many friends. In Sept I went to a VA Doctor for a second opinion.  Later he sent me a letter saying, “Your CScan looks good! There is resolving blood on the brain but it is very small and doesn’t require surgery”. Praise God as that is what we were praying for!

Family news

Savannah my daughter’s middle daughter was married in November to Austin Williams. Audrey and her other daughters, Tiffany and Aryele, and my son Randy all attended. It was a wonderful time with family! Audrey is the Career and Technical Education Test Coordinator at Venice FL High School where Tiffany, 16, is a Junior. She is the Student Leader at the 180 House, a Youth for Christ Ministry. Aryele graduated from Florida Gulf Coast College in August and started teaching at a Charter School in Ft. Myers FL the next week!
