From Darkness to Light

From Darkness to Light

Fall has arrived — the leaves are changing, and the weather is cooling down. This weekend, families around the world will celebrate Halloween with costumes, fall festivals, decorations, and plenty of mischief.  While this can be an exciting and wild holiday, we cannot forget that this is also a time of something much more sinister. This week’s blog might seem familiar — I’ve talked about this particular guest before. But stick with me here, because we’re going deep into some real, serious issues that could very well be standing in your way between where you are and where God wants you to be! We are in a spiritual war for our future. The Devil and his army are real, powerful forces that can invade your life, keeping you from moving forward. My 1onOne guest, John Ramirez, spoke with me about the very real, very powerful presence the enemy has. Born into a line of warlocks and witches, John rose to a third-ranked high priest and soldier in Satan’s army. Initiated at the age of nine, this was the only life John knew. He spent twenty-five years in that role, practicing witchcraft and spiritualism. He described how soldiers in the Devil’s army acted in the spirit realm to keep people away from God’s plans and shake the faith of believers. This is horrifying stuff, friends – and it’s real. The Devil isn’t just a costume or an idea. He is crafty, cunning, subtle, and waiting to lead you astray. The Devil wants to separate you from the Cross. He and his army search for people who are struggling, people who...
This Is Your Moment — Take It By Faith

This Is Your Moment — Take It By Faith

This Is Your Moment — Take It By Faith: 1onOne w/ Damon Davis There are times in everyone’s life where you just feel stuck, but when you move by faith, incredible things happen! Life is firmly in the mediocre lane. Maybe you’re struggling with finances, or your relationships, or your health. Have you settled for living a less than extraordinary life? Pastor Edward Kirkpatrick of the Abundant Life Church shared the tools to seeing the manifestation of God’s presence in our heath, finances, and relationships when he joined me in the 1onOne studio. He’s written an incredible book called Divine Healing Now! In it, Pastor Kirkpatrick walks readers through the methods, strategies, and steps to take to achieve a breakthrough in understanding how to receive God’s healing powers. It’s an easy read with audio and DVD components to help readers know what Divine Power really is! Now, I know I keep using to word “breakthrough,” but I want you to understand that a breakthrough isn’t always a forceful event. It doesn’t have to be a struggle — you with a sledgehammer tearing down walls — breakthrough can simply be understanding what God deems possible for you in your life! There’s no way I could capture all Pastor Kirkpatrick shared with me in his time on the show, but I want to hit the highlights. What’s holding us back? Not understanding God’s Will! Hosea 4:6 says, “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.” God wants so much for all of us, but we settle, accepting our situations and problems for what they are. Lack of expectation. Expectation breeds manifestation. We...
The Essentials of Optimal Living

The Essentials of Optimal Living

The Essentials of Optimal Living: 1onOne with Damon Davis Our bodies are designed like fine vehicles — without the proper care, we can’t function correctly. If you’re feeling broken down, there’s a way to repair your body and get back on the road of life. Dr. Joel Wallach has been on a lifelong quest to discover what makes our bodies work. The answer, it turns out, is surprisingly simple. We get sick and feel worn down and miserable because our bodies aren’t getting the nutrients they need to maximize our genetic potential. He shared with me his personal experience of a childhood plagued by Tourette-like symptoms. Unwilling to accept such a grim fate, a young Dr. Wallach set out to figure out the cure doctors couldn’t offer him. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals cured his symptoms! Think about it, gang. If we’re made in God’s image, why are we plagued by health issues? God doesn’t want us suffering from disease and chronic conditions that cause us discomfort and maybe even premature death. People everywhere are giving in to what they’re feeling, becoming defeated by a bad prognosis or just feeling worn down. Eating well isn’t enough. Exercising isn’t enough. Taking medication after medication to deal with symptoms without resolving the condition isn’t the answer! The answer is in Dr. Wallach’s 90 Essential Nutrients program. It’s a colloidal supplement program featuring 60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, and 3 fatty acids all designed to work together to get your body back to where God designed it to be. Dr. Wallach’s research and message are helping people regain...
Unforgiveness: The Real Blessing Blocker

Unforgiveness: The Real Blessing Blocker

Unforgiveness: The Real Blessing Blocker — 1onOne with Damon Davis It’s one of the greatest choices one can be faced with… forgive and forget, or hold on and never let go? People often feel that it is easier to simply shut others out who have hurt them. But in reality, this leads to a closed spirit, heartache, bitterness, and can even turn to physical pain and suffering in the long run. At the root of a closed spirit is unforgiveness, and its agenda is to block God’s blessings from flowing in your life. You see, God intends on blessing you, but a bitter and unforgiving mindset will block you from receiving the very thing that God wants you to have in life… freedom! Matthew 6:14-15 says, “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” God makes it very clear that in order for us to receive forgiveness we must be able to forgive others. Ask yourself — is it worth it to miss out on heaven just because of your refusal to forgive? That kind of mindset will never hurt the person or circumstance that did you wrong, it will only hurt you! Everyone — including you — needs to be forgiven for something. That’s why Jesus died on the cross — to offer total forgiveness for all sin. If Jesus can forgive you for what you have done, then surely you can show forgiveness too. Make a choice to forgive. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you accomplish...
Understanding Your Body and Your Blood

Understanding Your Body and Your Blood

Understanding Your Body & Your Blood: 1onOne w/ Damon Davis Most of us try hard to create a good and healthy lifestyle. We eat well, we exercise, we get plenty of rest, and maybe we even take supplements to make sure our bodies get what they need. Why, then, do we still struggle with issues like fatigue, swelling, stubborn body fat, and pain? The answer, it turns out, is surprisingly simple. Like it says in Leviticus 17:11, “The life of the body is in its blood.” It’s in our blood. Seriously! I recently had the pleasure of being joined by my friend, Dr. Joe Christiano, on the 1onOne show. Not only is he my friend, he’s also a celebrity trainer, nutritional counselor, and naturopathic doctor. Dr. Joe shared with me his book, Blood Types, Body Types, and You. His book reveals the source of our physical ailments — our blood types and food interactions. I’m no doctor and I don’t have room in a short blog post to share all that I learned, but here’s a breakdown. God designed our bodies to process foods in a certain way. The foods that benefit us are determined by our blood type: I’m talking A, B, O, and AB. In the same way that you wouldn’t transfuse type B blood to someone whose blood type is A, we shouldn’t eat foods that are incompatible with our blood type. This means we can eat as healthy as we can, but if we’re not eating correctly, our problems will persist! Blood Types, Body Types, and You is an incredible guide to getting your eating habits on...
