The healing of the author from many spurious prophesies he has been given.
He does speak some truth in that, the Catholic Church is dead, it is religious (which God is not) and it is not of God. He also calls to account the many sins found in the Charismatic movement. There is no doubt that this is true. However this has SO wounded the author (and it can do that for sure and the Charismatic movement has deeply wounded many of God's children) that he no longer believes in a living God who can actually interact with his children, who can have a two-way relationship with God. THAT hurt my spirit and it is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. The only reason God's speaks through another person is when the person spoken to, is not listening, too wounded to hear, too deeply in sin or whatever. The greatest sin of the charismatic church is that it FORCES people to prove that they are filled with the spirit by operating in gifts they simply do not have. It's not that you cannot have these gifts but being filled with the holy spirit requires one thing and one thing only - total and complete and genuine submission to God. MOST people do not want to do this but they still want to be accepted into a church. They are told that they DO have a gift and that they must find it and start operating in it. Preachers actually stand in front of their congregation and pretend to speak in tongues saying 'bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub' and that's all they ever say. Utter absolute rubbish and they KNOW it's utter absolute rubbish but they stand as an 'example'. No wonder so many are damaged by the Charismatic church. However there IS a real relationship to be had with God and it IS with a LIVING GOD not a dead God who only spoke to and worked through people centuries ago. People must be allowed to have the amount of faith that they want, must be accepted to submitting to God the amount they want - and stop being forced by charismatic leaders (who are themselves deceived) to operate in gifts THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE. It's rife in the Charismatic movement.However this author has been damaged by them and has closed himself off to a relationship with a LIVING God who CAN and WILL be a real presence in your life if you will only let him. Is caution required in pursuit of this relationship? Absolutely 100%. But it exists and should be pursued.
The parts that intimate that God cannot and does not communicate with people today, that there is no living God, that there is only scripture. The parts that say all communication from God today is rubbish and that HE WILL NOT LISTEN TO ANY OF IT. Does discernment have to be engaged when listening to God - absolutely 100%. But this author is so damaged and he doesn't know it. Much of what he says is true but he is also killing the belief in a God that actually exists. God cannot be dead to humans other than through scripture - and yet still be alive. HE IS ALIVE. HE IS A LIVING GOD! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! It cannot be otherwise.
Everything. The story. Joel's accent (lol so sweet). The fabulous message. Praise God!
Buy it. You'll be so glad you did.
Loved it all because it's a book that feeds your spirit.
The fact that the author pursued God with fervor and gave EVERYTHING. So few people do that and so they never really get to know God. When you are like that you hunger for others who know God because every word that comes out of their mouths feeds you.
yes definitely I've listened to it and am still listening to it. Over and over. Love it.
Top work. Thank you.
I am a spirit-filled Christian and listening to this book 'fed' me spiritually all the way through, every word, and it's a long book.
It was all good because it was written by someone filled with the Holy Spirit; so the words were living water. I luxuriated in it all.
Really loving easy-listening. Some readers are irritating but not so this one. Really nice.
It contains words that feed you.
I know this book doesn't come just from the effort of writing a book but from the author's whole life. SO worth it.
It's very clear, great technique and you know the Greek that they are teaching in a very short time.
I guess the other units will be very good if they are done the same way.
Greek, Greek, Greek
Learn fast and easy
The rest is all in Greek so you have no idea what it is saying or how to learn it. Stupid, stupid, stupid
I would, and will, listen to this book again and again and again because it is read beautifully and it is the best emotional and spiritual food that you will eat - ever.
The character is you, the focus is you and it gives you hope.
I haven't. I will though.
This book is good from the first word the last - it is mentally and spiritually delicious.
Brilliant. Well done. Thank you so much.
This books SEEMS to be giving a very high level view of project management. And six sigma WT???
Put something of value into it and drop the six sigma rubbish.
It's great that 'honour thy mother and thy father' is questioned in this book. There are some parents who should not be honoured.
Don't know about moments but the whole book questions the way abused children are told to 'forgive' and 'honour' those who abused them when our bodies are telling us that our truth is so important.
A caring genuine sounding approach I suppose.
It gives you the freedom to accept how you feel, to be understanding of yourself instead of being understanding of the abuser.
I wanted a book written by someone who really wanted to be near God.
Soaking in the word of God and another person's experience of it.
God and the author.
It just help to feed me spiritually. Thank you.
