Watch: Wide-Awake Faith in a World Fast Asleep by Rick James
Little description: To be asleep is to be oblivious to being oblivious. The danger of sleep is the danger of carbon monoxide: it’s colorless and odorless, and you’re anesthetized before you know it―before you ever hit the floor. And for the follower of Jesus, it’s just as dangerous―because the Christian who is “asleep” is spiritually unreceptive. If anything will be our undoing, sleep will.
In this thoughtful, engaging, challenging book, Rick James dives deep into the New Testament’s teachings on spiritual wakefulness, calling Christ-followers to defy the darkness and remain awake as they await Christ’s return. Because being awake―continually in prayer, watchful for God’s will, expectant of open doors, cautious of sin, desiring to serve, eager to repent, continuously giving thanks, willing to witness, embracing of humility, overflowing with kindness, persevering in obedience―changes everything.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Rick James unpacks the way for Christian to stay awake. He describes the great sleeping sickness, a disorder that sweeps the earth, a real threat to the human body, causing brain to sleep and not awake, stuck in between to realities of the dreams and the physical world.
He explains how to discern the will of God, and be prepared in times of the enemy’s attack. The main topics of altering spiritual perception. There is mention about the heavenly rewards… Basically the book is all over the topics needed for the common Christian to know in this last days.
