Publisher's summary

From the author of Pigs in the Parlor...

Jesus gave the commission to cast out demons to the entire Church in Mark 16:17. When God calls us into ministry, He equips us. The gifts of the Holy Spirit, as presented in 1 Corinthians 12, represent God's empowerment to believers to accomplish this task.

We must rely on the Holy Spirit for the ministry of deliverance and nothing else, not our own understanding, or the voice of demons, but only the voice of the Holy Spirit to guide us in deliverance and spiritual warfare. Through the gift of the discernment of spirits, we can defeat the enemy in the very place of his counsel and strategy, because God can tell us what (and who) we are coming against.

God is a jealous God. He does not permit us to go to any other source other than Himself for wisdom, knowledge, guidance, or power. Through the Holy Spirit we are able to know all that we need to know in order to defeat the devil and his evil spirits.

POWERFUL and ENLIGHTENING

I HEARD HISSING AND GARBLED DEEP VOICES WHILE THE PRAYER SECTIONS OF THESE RECORDINGS WERE PLAYING.....AND A EVIL PRESENCE IN MY ROOM AND A HEAVY PRESSURE ON MY BODY.....AND PRICKLY SENSATION ON MY SKIN, UNLIKE ANYTHING YHAT I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE....
I WAS NOT FRIGHTENED, I TOOK A DEEP BREATH, REBUKED THE EVIL PRESENCE IN JESUS NAME AND PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS!
I AM FINE....BUT I EXPERIENCED A DEMONIC SPIRIT'S STRONGHOLD DISSIPATE AND RESEND RIGHT IN MY PRESENCE IN MY HOME.
I HAD BEEN OPPRESSED BY SOME SPIRITUAL ABUSE AND THE OPPRESSION IS NOW LIFTED....I AM FREE AGAIN....AND COMPLETE FORGIVENESS FILLS MY HEART....PTL! THIS WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I ALSO LISTENED TO THE REJECTION....AUDIO AS WELL......JACKIE PARMER CORTEZ

Discerning of Spirits

This has helped me in understanding the process for discerning of spirits. To learn that it is something all spirit-filled believers should be able to do, it is from God alone. I would refer this book to anyone who wants a clearer understanding of this gift of the Spirit.

Unlevel Sound

I would like to say I love it because the content was great, but the unlevel Sound was annoying. There were parts I could not hear no matter how much I turned the volume up.

50 / 50 of dark or the Light? How developed is you

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I just do not understand how a man can be so convinced that the Spirit of God speaks to him and that if God relays a message through him to another that God told that person a truth that must be excepted for healing, yet not know God's Church or listen to the Priesthood of that institution of Christ's ministry. Much of what he says as far as sins and demons I do not doubt, but that he actually has true discernment I would actually question if he is a minister of darkness himself.
It also is a speech and not a book.

What was most disappointing about Frank Hammond’s story?

I was hoping he was going to speak more on the Full Armor of God and not merely mention it not even by individual peaces besides the obvious Sword of the Spirit. He also did not get into the Gift's of the Holy Spirit, but only mentioned 2 or 3 of them without great detail.
He mentions the High Priest and bad relations with God, because of kings disobeying God through disobedience to those Priests, yet he is not in the Church from the sounds of it, thus doing the same thing; just he is not a king.

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

He did call enough sin for sin and that is good even if the fullness of Faith is not in it, at the same time I didn't catch anything as far as major error in moral teaching.

Any additional comments?

If people are truly delivering people from bondage to sin, addiction, sickness, or any diabolic oppression and or possession I would like them God willing to be much more detailed in that development of Faith through in a sense teach on how to form the Armor of God rather than simply mention it. Perhaps key points on interior development such as contemplative prayer and meditation of the Sword of the Spirit which we know is the Word of God. Perhaps addressing the spirit of effemininity as it is an ever growing problem today. If this really is about growing in Holiness how to we become a more Godly people living in the Commandments which is Love.

Good book for Beginnerswho want to understand discerning of spirits

I like the way he introduces his information.
In addition, how he gave clarity and understanding to those who have no knowledge about discerning of spirits.
