About Deborah Esther Nyamekye
Deborah Esther Nyamekye is a prolific writer, poet and entrepreneur. Deborah is also a self published author of a number of books in the Christian, Poetry/Spoken Word and Historical context, some of which are available on Amazon for purchase.
Deborah works for the Health Care sector and since 2013 has served the Body of Christ in the capacity as teacher, prophetic intercessor/prayer minister and counsellor in collaboration with a number of Christian ministries as well as working as an Itinerate minister organising seminars/workshops (2016-2018) that included teaching practical bible based living, assessing potential and discussing whether people are utilising all their God give talents, skills or abilities.
In 2019, Deborah also partnered with a UK borough's mental health program for young people in the area of creative writing. One of her poems was performed at Lancing College, Lancing Michigan during a theatrical production of a play called "I have a Name" in November 2019. Another poem was selected to be included in an Anthology of International Poets entitled Poetic Bond VII. Deborah has participated in Spoken Word/Poetry reading and discussion forums. The uniqueness of Deborah's poetry/spoken word in her book The Witness is that most of them are expressions of human life and her perspective of the world that many share, discussing war, faith, justice, peace, love as well as, through poetry raising awareness with regards to domestic/child abuse, mental health etc...
As with Chapter 1, in Chapter 2 poems cover topics that are intended to raise awareness and to start or ensure conversations about serious issues affecting humanity never stop as openness and transparency is the beginning of healing, rehabilitation or liberation through various means. Poems in chapter 2 expose things as they are and at the same time express a desire and hope for justice, truth, deliverance and a change of circumstances.
In chapter 3, a certain type of person is portrayed namely the hater, offender, self-aggrandiser and their victims. In chapter 4, the dark side of the human mind and motives in juxtaposition with an equally dark world are laid bare. Humanity has the greatest influence over the world than any other creature; what unravels is a reflection of what’s deeply embedded in the hearts and minds of mankind…not a pretty picture and that’s an understatement. It is evident within the poems of Chapter 5 that hope of the positive human experience, a personal redemption story including the restoration of interpersonal relationships is possible and must be clenched tightly never to let go when attained…Come what may harmonious co-existence is possible. Chapter 6 is a reflection on seasons of the year, about places (i.e. Africa, Ghana, London), situations in life and attitudes. Chapter 7 address the subject of love, emotions associated with love and how people deal with these emotions. Chapter 8 is a mixture of poems that are reflections, prayers, provide counsel, motivation and inspiration.
Please add a review after you read the book. Thank you Deborah

Yahweh Reigns: Inspirational Prophetic Christian Poetry, Volume 3 is one of four volumes of books written by Deborah Esther Nyamekye.
They cover diverse subjects for the purpose of praising Yahweh, Yeshua, the Messiah and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) as well as for the exhortation of those living their lives as Yeshua’s disciples. Deborah has also been inspired to write poems that are songs, prayers and prophetic encouragement/counsel/warnings. The poems speak of Yahweh’s control over all things and His faithfulness, protection and everlasting love for humanity. The importance of salvation, righteous living and intimacy with Yahweh as well as the readiness for Yeshua’s Second Coming are also common themes.
Deborah Esther encourages readers to use these unique poetry books that have scriptural references within or at the base of most of the poems, in their times of personal prayer and meditation before Yahweh as well as during group prayers and fellowship.
The inspirational teachings, packed with scriptural quotations or references are written as exhortations, devotionals or motivational articles with counsel. In most cases the author wrote the teaching first and was inspired to write the poem or poems that relate to the teaching soon afterwards. In some cases the poems were inspired by certain scriptures the author read or by a certain trend of thought giving the inspiration to write the teaching or exhortation derived from them. This book is ideal for personal and group study, enjoyment and inspiration.
This book is Volume 2 of the Treasures of Wisdom series by the author, Deborah E. Nyamekye.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT).
God’s ways are not easily understood by the human mind, in fact they may appear foolish when human beings try to interpret them with their limited understanding apart from God. However God in His Sovereignty as the All-powerful Creator and Controller of the universe always knows what He is doing. These teachings are inspired by God given revelation from scripture and are either based on case studies of biblical personalities, specific incidents or focus on specific topics with general scriptures that reveal God’s ways founded on His principles.
The inspirational teachings serve to give a clear insight and understanding of God’s ways or wisdom that affirm ageless principles underlying His actions and manner of governing His people and the world in general. They are also written to teach and encourage or exhort the believer in Christ with the hope of helping them in their quest to be renewed daily with a mind of Christ, therefore drawing closer to God through Christ. The apostle Paul in the scripture below explained that it is only those who are spiritual who can receive and have understanding of truths from God’s Spirit. These truths are the ways or thoughts of God. These “spiritual people” as Paul states have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinth. 2:13-16 NLT).
