It is this author's contention that God has several principles, which if followed can lead to success either in business or in life itself. He further contends that although many of these same principles may be found among the motivational speakers and thinkers of today, that they were originally derived from Holy Scripture, whether or not these modern spokespersons are aware of it. He points to Jesus' teachings on the growth and inclusiveness of the kingdom to show that not everyone who preaches or practices Kingdom principles will be found to be in the Kingdom at the end. The seventeen chapters of this book contain seventeen articles relating to seventeen of these principles with quotable quotes and examples from the author's novel, Of Such Is The Kingdom, A novel of Biblical Times.

I, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on June 8, 1943 to a Christian family and accepted Jesus at an early age. In Jr. High School, I became interested in writing and drama. I wrote poems, articles and a few short stories, and plays. In college, I won second prize in a contest with a Biblical short story, which now forms part of my first novel, “Of Such Is The Kingdom, A novel of the Christ and the Roman Empire,” published in 2003.
In 2010, I wrote the sequel, “Of Such Is the Kingdom, Part III,
Power and Persecution, A Novel of the early Church and the Roman Empire.”
I also wrote a Sci-fi novel, “Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth” and a non-fiction book, “Principles of the Kingdom."
I graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 1970 with a B.A. degree in Bible-Literature, and from Biblical School of Theology in 1974 with a M. Div. Ordained in November, 1974, I served as assistant pastor/Bible teacher in several churches. I also served in a foreign-student ministry, where I met my wife, Berenice Carett from Venezuela.
In 2014 I wrote an American historical novel, called "The Christmas Victory."
Just what is inspiration, what does it do, and of what does it consist? You'll find the answers to theses questions here, but barely. I pose that inspiration consists of three elements. But why these three in particular, and how do these elements fit and work together?

Principles of the Kingdom (God's Success Principles)
INSPIRATION can be a powerful thing. It can keep you going when all around you cries out .quit!. It is even more powerful than motivation, as motivation gives you your basic reasons to keep going—it tells you why you want to do what you do, because motivation is based on goals. These, in turn, may be based on necessity want or desire. But, inspiration fills those reasons with hope, possibility and enjoyment and keeps the .grind. from becoming too .grindy. But just what does inspiration consist of? I posit three elements: purpose, vision and mission.
