Jesus Driven Ministry by Ajith Fernando

This is an EXCELLENT book to read for those of you who, like me, are desiring to enter into the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ. I have been taking some online bible classed through Pillar Of Truth Bible Institute and this was one I was required to read for one of the classes. IT IS VERY GOOD!!! One thing I love about the Lord…when you are studying something in the right season…He teaches you in between the lines…He is doing this with me with this particular book. One of the things taught…is not to set “holiness” aside as some are in the habit of doing. It is taught here that some in biblical times lost their power due to operating in the gifts without also being characterized with the Lord’s holiness. This spoke to me BIG TIME as recently the Lord spoke to me through 3 little foxes. I knew what this meant…the little foxes being so called “little sins” which grow up to be quite destructive!!! In my case…He was calling to mind…little foxes in my own life…one was…coming home to find I was not charged for something and taking a lonnnnnggggg time to go back and pay for it. I did go back and got ‘er paid for…as know it is just too big a cost to let it go. Just one example of the many nuggets in store for you in this book. For me this book has been one of those “just can’t seem to put it down” type of books and I look forward to time with the Lord as I read the lines and listen in between the lines. May you be blessed and enriched and more prepared for the ministry the Lord has for you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!!!! ~amen~

Miracles Are For Real by James L. Garlow and Keith Wall

If you are someone who loves to read other’s testimonies as I do then this is the book for you! Something I have learned regarding testimonies…if the Lord is leading a person to share one…then this is what the Lord is intending to do for you!!! I recall a time when I was praying for a miracle for my Dad. He was dying of cancer. In the midst of my weeping and begging God for this miracle for my Dad the Lord responded to me and said, “Will you still believe in miracles if I don’t give one to your dad?” I answered quickly back…”YES!” He then said, “Well, I’m going to do something special for your dad.” The Lord was faithful…He led me to anoint my dad with oil and to ask for Him to baptize my dad with the Holy Spirit. I overheard my mom sometime later saying she had heard my dad speaking in some other language. I believe what you read about, immerse yourself in…that this is what will take place. Immerse yourself in this book and read about other’s testimonies of miracles…they actually do happen!!! God bless you in your walk with our Lord and I pray all you who are seeking miracles for yourselves or for loved ones…I pray in agreement with your prayers…IN JESUS NAME I PRAY…~amen~ I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a book review. I was not required to write a favorable review. Freely I have been given and freely I give. I received this book from Chosen publishing.

The Essential Guide to Healing by Bill Johnson and Randy Clark

“The Essential Guide to Healing” By Bill Johnson and Randy Clark This is my first time reading any of either Bill Johnson’s or Randy Clark’s writings. I have heard of both of them, just have not read them. Having said that, I will not hesitate to read either of their writings in the future! This is an excellent book and one I recommend. One of the topics which really stood out to me was written by Bill Johnson. It was in Chapter 8, “The Power Of The Testimony.” What Bill Johnson wrote helped give me a much greater understanding as to why God oftentimes has us testify as to the things He has done for us in our lives. Has encouraged me to be more obedient when asked to share one of my testimonies. Bill explains that giving our testimony is prophesying God’s intent for others. I say amen to that one! Another one of the topics which stood out to me was written by Randy Clark. This topic was in Chapter 10. “ Words Of Knowledge For Healing.” How even just by Randy teaching about having a word of knowledge which leads to healing caused others to also rise up in this most powerful anointing! I loved just reading the testimonies which Randy shared throughout this chapter. These are just two of the things out of many in this prophetically charged book. I feel stirred in my spirit man having read this book and encourage you to do the same. I am glad I read this book and will be referring back to it time and time again. I received this book free from Chosen, a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for a free review. I was not required to give a positive review but give it freely. Much deserved.
