"Luke Volume II", often called "The Acts of the Apostles", completes the "Pentateuch of the New Testament". The traditional title of this book is, in some respects, a misnomer: It primarily deals with the "acts" of Peter and Paul. It really should be called "The Acts of the Holy Spirit". This review will explore the continuing mysteries of Hag Shavuot in Acts 2; the surprises in the history lesson Stephen gives the Sanhedrin in Acts 7; the controversies dealt with in the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15; and more.

Daniel had the most incredible career imaginable; he was transported as a teenage captive to a pagan empire and became the primary confidante to the ruler of Babylon. When Babylonia was taken over by its enemies, he rose to the second or third position in the Persian Empire. There are only two people in the Bible other than Jesus Christ of which no evil is spoken, Joseph and Daniel.

For thousands of years, most of us have either had or still hold to misconceptions, myths, legends, or traditions about Satan and the underworld. What is Hell, Hades and Gehenna? How do demons differ from angels, and what are their limitations and agenda? What is Satan's origin, agenda, and destiny? What is the Age of Hybrids? How do we prepare ourselves through spiritual hygiene and the armor of God?

Never gets into the meat he promises.

Claims he will cover it later and never does.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gordon Russell’s performances?

Chuck explores the contradictory behavior of UFOs, and other demonic deceptions, characteristic of the end times. Are they real? Why do UFOs enjoy a military classification higher than our most sensitive weapons systems? Why are the events which occurred in Roswell, New Mexico, still classified since 1947? Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an alien visitor?

What would have made Angels better?

More Biblical information about Angles instead of Star Trek Holodeck theories.

What was most disappointing about Chuck Missler’s story?


I didn’t expect a seminar on the scientific merits of holograms and the theories behind them. For the author to that we live in a dimension that he suggest is really a Hologram and our current reality is structured that way is a tremendous departure from the Bible to the scientific theories of someone whose spiritual life we know nothing about and have not been proven out of the Word. I did not purchase this book for a science lesson. The Bible nor the Holy Spirit has not revealed the existence of any Holographic portion to the universe. The author seems to suggest we are in some kind of” Petri dish” that God has hidden from us when the book of John says that the Holy Spirit will reveal all things to us (John 16:l13).

How could the performance have been better?

By staying with the revealed facts of The Word.

What character would you cut from Angels?

tthere aint none

In Daniel 10 the command was issued for Michael to fight against the strongman holding the people of Israel in bondage. He came against the prince of Persia so God's people might be set free and return to their homeland. Before this event ever took place on Earth, it was accomplished in the heavenly realm. The powers of the demonic princes were broken by the angelic forces of the hosts of God, and it set the people of God free.

Pneumatology refers to the study of the Holy Spirit in light of the Bible. It is an area many parts of the body of Christ have overlooked, which has truly hindered our spiritual growth and the advancement of God's kingdom in the earth today. John G. Lake walked with the Holy Spirit and sought after him ever so carefully. He was a man of study and wanted to know how God healed the sick and how Christ worked through man by the Spirit's involvement.

You will learn how to: Encourage yourself, overcome seriously bad days, stay connected to your destiny, access Heaven's open door, and disarm hell with thanksgiving.

What would have made Strengthen Yourself in the Lord better?

Rejecting the premise that the Lord is the author of testing. James 1:13 says that God is not the author of this testing. How did Jesus, Paul and the many other Apostles strengthen themselves in the Lord?

What was most disappointing about Bill Johnson’s story?

The character of David was not so hot when he was tempted while lusting after Bethsheba he did not strengthen himself in the Lord, nor did he seek the shelter of the Lord after he committed the adultery. To further hide his sin, he killed the husband of the woman he committed adultery with instead of trusting God to deal with the mess. See 2 Samuel 2:1 where David again asks God for direction (he did not ask where the woman was concerned).

How did the narrator detract from the book?

No life in the narration, like he is reading from some notes. WHAT is "...is a man after my own heart." Twice he uses the disciples in the boat to show their lack of faith (is that the only biblical examples he has?)

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed in the book. No commentary on the only time David did not strengthen himself in the Lord where Uriah The Hittite was concerned. David knew it was another man's wife! God could have and would have helped David (2 Sam. 12:8) but, David did not ask...

Any additional comments?

BTW, I listened to this three times...David and The Apostle Paul are my favorite leaders. How did Paul strengthen himself in the Lord? David was King, Prophet, Minstrel, and Psalmist; Paul was Prophet and later Apostle. I think we spend too much time in the Old Covenant and not enough time explaining the New Covenant and the Government of God for today and tomorrow.

Living a Life of Fire, by Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, is the amazing life story of one of the world's most successful promoters of the Christian message. Bonnke's name is known around the world - from Taiwan to Timbuktu, from Cape Town to Calgary - and is synonymous with gigantic gospel campaigns in Africa, where not just thousands or tens of thousands, but hundreds of thousands of people are won to Christ - in a single meeting.

Would you consider the audio edition of Living a Life of Fire to be better than the print version?

Yes because you can hear the excitement of the author as he describes the work of and for The Lord.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bonnke's meager beginnings on the street corners; the same as here in America.

What does Reinhard Bonnke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

his heart for God and the lost souls he reached.

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

Yes, but is was impossible. His personal presentation provided something no other book of this sort has; the Anointing of the Spirit of God! All the other books had a speaker; this had the fire of the author and could be felt, in spite of his accent, by the listener.

Any additional comments?

I messed up the call of God on my life because I lacked so much but, it was all my heart that ... I have always longed for the intimate relationship He provides and this book reminds me of the miraculous I've seen and experienced in The Lord.

Many Christians have a limited view of God and His Kingdom. For centuries we have viewed His Kingdom and His Kingdom agency, the Church, from the limited perspective of our own experiences and the traditions of man. With such a narrow perspective, it is no wonder most people think there has to be something more to this than what we are currently seeing. And there is!

In his unique teaching style, Pastor Bill Johnson delivers a message to help listeners pursue God for greater measures of His presence than they have ever known before. In Face to Face with God, readers will learn: How to "set up an ambush" to apprehend God rather than just waiting on God, what it means to enter "the favor of His face," and how it changes history.

Any additional comments?

I have had similar encounters over the last 50 years but did not know how to maintain the level and intensity of the encounters. Nor was "The Church" forthcoming with any practical teaching on these experiences and the fact that these are a normal part of the Believers walk as a Kingdom Dweller. Believers at this level of intensity are ignored, marginalized or thought of as strange because "The Church" isn't walking in these experiences. BELIEVERS do not FELLOWSHIP with other Believers who have walked down this path.
