Messages from Heaven: Is Anyone Listening?
Even a Tyndale House executive seemed to acknowledge this, in an April email to Beth about the film crew obtained by the Guardian: Beth adds that when consulted on the cover and title of the book, Alex was strongly against the ones that were eventually chosen.

But all parties seem to agree that Alex did not write them, and he never signed a contract with Tyndale and on the copyright register. While Alex is listed as a co-author of the book, Kevin Malarkey is listed as the only claimant of the copyright. The copyright, as it turns out, was lucrative. Kevin Malarkey built a speaking career on it, traveling and giving interviews — alone.
He could not be reached for comment for this article. The dam began to break in August Early that month, Alex logged on to Facebook and went on to the fan page for the book. He can access the internet himself, with a computer he controls with his mouth.

There, he left a cryptic comment under his own name: Fans began to reply angrily, questioning whether this could possibly be the real Alex. Whoever controlled the fan page deleted the comment. Beth Malarkey later posted a copy of the Facebook comment thread to her blog. Her emails are long and complicated, quoting passages from the book and then explaining what is wrong with them. Almost all of the inaccuracies, she say, relate back to a single theme: Kevin and Beth Malarkey are still legally married, but do not speak to each other, and have not for some time.
According to the emails newly obtained by the Guardian, Harris acknowledged that Beth had presented larger issued with the book, writing: Even if we could make a case for breaking our contract, the book could and probably would be back in print with another publisher within a few weeks. We have to give the author, in this case Kevin, a chance to respond. As far as giving Alex a voice, we would be glad to talk with Alex and hear what he has to say about the book. I offer again to come to your home to talk with you, Kevin and Alex, for the purpose of giving all three of you a voice.
I know you are concerned that there might be repercussions after such a meeting, but would they be worse than the current situation? At the very least, I think a phone call with you and Kevin is essential. When the Guardian contacted Tyndale House for comment about the email correspondence, the publisher wrote back with a more detailed statement: According to Phil Johnson, who keeps in regular touch with Beth and provided her emails with Tyndale House to the Guardian, the reason Beth did not agree to a meeting was that the situation seemed adversarial to her.
Beth Malarkey simply kept complaining on the internet. And for years, nothing changed.
How do you know God is speaking to you?
Until Alex posted that open letter. On Friday, as the headlines and Malarkey puns were still flying, Johnson spoke to Beth Malarkey on the phone, gauging her mood. She has declined all press interview requests , citing childcare obligations. Her feelings, he told the Guardian, are mixed.
Listening To God
Listening to God requires a right attitude in our hearts. In order to listen to God and receive His instruction, we must want to do His will, much as Habakkuk did. God honors the heart that is fully surrendered to Him. If we are stubbornly clinging to our own desires, we are likely to get a garbled message that will not be God's voice at all. As a result, we are likely to continue pursuing a path that is contrary to the one God has designed for our lives. If you do, you can trust that He will direct your path.
Listen to His message, and be quick to obey. Write down what He tells you and be ready to share it so that others may understand.

When you listen to God and obey Him, you will discover a life that is full and rich with purpose, confident you are following the Master's plan. God , the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus , the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried , and rose from the dead according to the Bible.
If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior , declaring, " Jesus is Lord ," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
