    "Forgiveness is the KEY"

    This book was referred to me by a friend. Actually she said to be sure to get the hard copy because the book is so full of scripture you will want to look everything up the second go around.

    Yea yea-- All I seem to have time for now a days is to listen. Get it!!!!!!!!!! There is so much information on forgiveness in this book. I struggle with forgiveness period!!! I guess when I forgave I wasn't truly in my heart letting it go, if I even forgave at all. I harbored grudges and lots of anger towards those that hurt or offended me. This book showed my how NOT to do that any longer. I am now working in the right direction in being able to forgive with an open and loving heart thru God, to truly cast my burdens on Him and FORGIVE and ASK for forgiveness!!! Forgiveness helps us to grow into the people that God really wants us to become. Loving, caring, full of kindness towards others and showing honor to Him.

    Any place that you are at in your life, this book will show you so much more of Gods love and understanding. God's hand will be on you as you go thru this book and He will rain down His blessings when you finally receive the true understanding of forgiveness.

    Get this book. Take the time to ask God to open your heart and to feel His presence while you are listening and He will guide you. You will see and feel the change.


    In God's love and forgiveness,

    "detox for the heart"
    Would you listen to Bait of Satan again? Why?

    yes, most definitley. currently listening to it again. I want to keep fresh what I have learned and see if there is anything I missed the first time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could feel the annointing throughout the whole book.


    What about John Bevere’s performance did you like?

    sensitive to Gods voice


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the whole book did, but the portion of when you justify your actions because you have been offended. when we do something, even though the bible backs us up... with what spirit, cause or reason am I doing it? vengence is mine says the lord... I finally get it.


    Any additional comments?

    thank you..

    "Excellent book, do yourself a favor and get it."

    If you are a Christian struggling in any area of you life, and you are having a hard time putting your finger on the problem (or maybe you know) read/listen to this book. It was a true gift of the Spirit. I listened to the whole of the book while on a long drive and was convicted, edified, taught and blown away! I will be buying a copy to read and reread often.

    "Might be good for some but wasn't for me."
    Would you try another book from John Bevere and/or John Bevere?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Bevere’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think some people could gain something from this book but there are many other books that are much better out there.


    Any additional comments?

    Not saying this book is horrible but it defiantly didn't rub me the right way. at first i thought i didn't like the book because maybe it was something i need to hear but just didn't want to but after i finished it and prayed i realized this is not the case. The main problem i have is how self important the author is. The second is the message, i believe sometimes you will have to do stuff that isn't %100 what you want but you should never blindly obey someone just because they say God says it.

    Story
    "A Topic We All Need to Listen to and Understand"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bait of Satan?

    This book tells about a very important doctrine from God's Holy Word and explains how God expects us to deal with offenses when they happen. John Bevere uses stories from his own life and from the Bible to illustrate the points of this doctrine so that we can understand how choices we make when we become offended can affect ourselves and others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Some parts of this book are difficult to listen to and will evoke emotions that the listener will need to deal with after listening. I don't recommend listening in one sitting. I think it's best to take this book in pieces and deal with the emotions a little at a time.

    "Don't be trapped"
    What did you love best about Bait of Satan?

    Like so many of the testimonies used in this book I have to say that I like the way it points out to me places that I am baited and trapped, when I thought that I had overcome those things in my life.
