Dr Joseph Luxum is a world traveler; an optometrist by trade and a trained musician, songwriter, composer and conductor. Lived in Jerusalem, Galilee, California, Texas, Florida and Holland.
Currently he and his wife Jennifer live in upstate New York. His latest book, entitled “War in a bottle” published by WestBow Press, deals with bottled up and often unresolved issues. The diffusion is not an explosion. The miraculous heavenly peace, which absorbs all unrest fills and takes over any restless territory. “Peace I give to you not as this world gives…” said Jesus (John 14:17). Perfect peace comes from the perfect realm which is not of this world.
Dr. Luxum writes music and records it in his studio. He is the author of more than 30 books. A preacher and Bible teacher. He studied Judaism, Christianity and Islam
and is quite well versed in most of religious subjects.
As a preacher, author and composer Dr. Luxum allots special seasons to teaching, writing books and composing new songs, classical pieces that also include an opera. The latest piece of music he is busy with is an opera, which he wrote in 1982 in Jerusalem.
Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in that house, eating and drinking what they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not keep moving from house to house. Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you’ (Luke 10:5-9).
Jesus told us to: "not keep moving from house to house' but stay in one place." Besides preaching the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:15) and teaching God's Word we are also commissioned to heal the sick. That blessed house, and now also a revival center, begins to attract more and more visitors.
In time such a revival center can become a church, but it should remain a revival center without any formal structure. A revival center keeps on reviving and keeps bringing in the new and the fresh.
Revival cannot be quenched; its flame must be kept alive. Peace on Earth and good will toward man’ (Luke 2) angels proclaimed at the birth of Jesus, yet there is no lasting peace. What sort of a peace were angels proclaiming?
