    "Power to God's people!" The book ‘Empowernomics’ starts thus: “It was a beautiful spring morning in Baltimore, Maryland. I was at the end of my tether. As an immigrant in the United States, my life had become a constant drudge through an endless struggle through a dark valley of trials and tribulations, woes and impediments…” But it is not a sad song. Despite the rather wordy title - ‘Empowernomics: understanding the system of God’s purpose for mankind - an Outline of the Core Teachings of Rev. GENE C. BRADFORD’ - this book is a concise package that traces the common sense steps a confirmed agnostic takes in his desire to discover the logic of Christ. It also picks the common threads that run throughChristianity as taught by the prominent teacher Rev. Gene C. Bradford, pastors the Full Gospel Tabernacle Baptist Church in Windsor Mill. Achampong, with this first attempt at non-fiction, delves, albeit cursorily, into the basic tenets of the Christian religion under the... More > guidance and direction of the seasoned preacher Bradford, an economist by profession. The writer takes one through the unfulfilled and delicate life of an agnostic immigrant in America “and the pain associated with my journey through this dark valley” who serendipitously bumps into Rev. Bradford who patiently but sternly breaks the whole conundrum of life down in front of him using scripture from the bible, sermons, television programs, treatises, and the example of his life. “Like Nehemiah says of Ezra, Bradford ‘read distinctly from the book, in the Law of God; and …gave the sense, and helped … to understand the reading’, Achampong explains. “I began to understand that we all have already been empowered by Calvary to achieve [God’s] purpose through the sufficiency of God’s grace”. This is the understanding that Bradford calls ‘Empowernomics’. The book continues with an account of how these revelations start Achampong on a new quest for enlightenment, which causes “the burdens that held me down, the doubts that blinded me and the carnal focus that sought to stifle my spirit, … to systematically strip away. I understood that by seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, I was reorienting my mind to focus my treasures on God thereby concentrating on His purpose with the faith and belief that the things I need to reach my goal would be given through His assured providence. And that God's grace abound to all good work for those who work according to His purpose,” he writes. ’Empowernomics’ puts one’s life into focus: all of a sudden, “dark overwhelming plumes of fleshly concerns that had deliberately consumed my waking moments and clouded my vision, started to dissipate, giving way to a bright sky with clear views and an enduring purpose in sight and within reach. Hitherto, the only way I knew to work towards solving my problems was to pray and/or ask for prayers. Now I understand that if you want peace, you have to produce the peace yourself for Christ stated that ‘blessed is the peacemaker’. “ Achampong writes that “rituals such as the very actions of praise, worship and prayer do not seem to count as righteousness if it they are not anchored on faith and unconditional love. To show one’s love for God and the understanding of His purpose, one needs to sow the seeds of righteousness and multiply the seeds sown so the world may see one’s light and glorify He who is in heaven.” The book “Empowernomics” is an attempt to reproduce in a lucid, linear way, an outline of the teachings of the teacher Rev. Gene Bradford, the message of Christ, the purpose for mankind on earth, the essence of the message that redirected the writer back to his “greater purpose”. Everyone must read this.< Less
