Raised in a 7th day Adventist Christian home, Eric Wilson began training in the martial arts at the age of fourteen, just after his parent’s separation and divorce. Searching for purpose and meaning in his life, and struggling to understand the storm which had destroyed his family and his home, Eric began the journey on a path which promised confidence, assurance, and control. Yet little did he realize the darkness into which that first step would lead him, nor the influence which these mysterious arts would play in his own marriage and his walk with the LORD. In sharing the Glad Tidings of the miracle which the LORD our God has done through His Sovereign love and power in breaking the chains which held him in bondage and darkness for nearly 25 years. And now, through this powerful new series, not only are the powers of darkness working behind the scenes revealed, but most importantly, the Way by which every soul may find Hope and Assurance, Redemption, Salvation and Restoration and of our Lord’s great desire to set every captive free !
