    "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..

    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.

    "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.

    "Thank God for John Bevere!!"

    This book was mentioned by one of the ladies in the life group l was in, and l listened to it during the free Amazon Audible offer! What a blessing on evey level! I thank God for showing me myself, and correcting, and healing a broken place in my heart. I also thank God for helping me to go to another level in forgiveness, and dealing with conflict. Thank you Father for this message, and your servant who brought it to your church.

    "I've lost so much time..."

    I'm 31 years old and spent at least 18 years holding on to situations in which I have been offended. I feel as if a weight has been released from my life since listening to this book. I am motivated to live differently and this book gives a good anchor and foundation to start doing that...

    "absolute deliverance. Please purchase and read!"

    This book proves that God has called me and the many others who have listen and read it. I now have a testimony. prepare to be humbled, then get ready to embrace peace like you never have in your entire life. I am still in amazement at the mysterious ways of how God calls us to peace. John thank you for allowing God to use you. Thank you! Thank you!
