Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

Resisting, Restricting, and Revoking the Plans of the Enemy

“Issuing Divine Restraining Orders from Courts of Heaven” powerfully presents evidence of the concept of operating within the Courts of Heaven.

Chapters are made up of prophetic teaching on essential aspects of working within the courts of heaven, specifically as they relate to restraining orders for restricting and revoking the plans of the enemy.

I have had several opportunities for serving and observing several jury trials in my lifetime. I have been exposed to the court system as providing justice for the citizens of our country. Because of these experiences and my observations, I am intrigued by Dr. Myles’s book “Issuing Divine Restraining Orders from Courts of Heaven.”

A Life Application Section, which includes a related memory verse and powerful questions for reflection and application, adds meaning to understanding the concept of the Courts of Heaven.

Other features I found helpful included:

  • Biblical Case Studies
  • Supernatural Testimonies
  • Powerful Scriptural Evidence
  • The extra lined pages at the end of the book for personal notes
  • The eighteen Activation Prayers
  • Instructions for how to use your spiritual authority to empower you and cancel the devil’s plans!

“Issuing Divine Restraining Orders from Courts of Heaven” is a part of the Official Courts of Heaven Series.

Training in the Principles, Protocols, and Proper Practice for Ministering Personal Prophecies to Others

Activating the Gift of Prophecy – Your Guide to Receiving & Sharing What God is Saying” is designed to provide useful tools and practical exercises for putting into place a meaningful plan for entering into a prophetic ministry.

I found this information and the exercises to be very helpful, practical, empowering, and enlightening. The authors write with passion, are Holy Spirit inspired, their writing is fast-moving, interesting, highly stimulating and right on target, written in present truth and a “now revelation” of God. They take the mystery out of the prophetic ministry by clarifying answers the questions:

 

  • What is Prophecy?
  • What are Ways to Hear God’s Voice
  • Why is Using Discernment Important
  • What are Protocols in Prophecy
  • What is meant by The Language of Prophecy
  • What are some Keys to Practicing More

 

 

The foreword by Tom and Jane Hamon and the introduction by Bill Hamon speak highly of Jermaine and Rebecca Francis and of their ministry with the Christian International organization founded by Dr. Tom Hamon.

 

“Activating the Gift of Prophecy” is a clear call to a new generation to activate their prophetic gift so that others can hear God’s voice to impact their world.

Affirming God’s Eternal Purposes for the Jewish People

As I read and reread the preface to this new, expanded, edition of “Our Hands Are Stained with Blood,” I have had to search my heart to examine my attitude toward Jewish people, their history, and my understanding of an apostate church.

Dr. Michael L. Brown traces the fourth century through the Holocaust, including the bad press Israel consistently receives, and the anti-Semitism expressed in the pulpits of our churches today.  Readers are challenged to make a difference in shaping the church to end this cycle of persecution and violence toward the Jewish people.

“Our Hands Are Stained with Blood” is not a book for casual reading. Each chapter is worthy of intense study in a search for a deeper understanding and genuine enlightenment regarding anti-Semitism. in the church.

Important detailed chapter end-notes provide evidence of the careful thorough study and research Dr. Brown has done in completing this expanded version of “Our Hands are Stained with Blood.”

As I scanned the contents, feasted on the forward, and previewed the chapters ahead; I knew that Dr. Michelle Corral had a message for me in her book “Secrets of the Anointing.”

Dr. Corral opens the book by introducing the seven avenues of access and the bondage breaking power of the anointing of God’s Holy Spirit. She compares the successes and failures of familiar characters of the Old Testament.

Dr. Corral provides the reader with tools for learning to rely on the Holy Spirit and His anointing, it’s purpose and power. Each chapter also includes a prayer or prophetic word designed for the reader to enhance their relationship with and power of the Holy Spirit.

These proven principles of the anointing of the Spirit are back by the result of Dr. Corral’s forty years of experience operating in the anointing.

I was challenged to embrace God’s plan, purpose and will for my life and to recognize his purpose and mission for me to become an agent of change.

I can wholeheartedly recommend “Secrets of the Anointing – Walking in a Lifestyle of Holy Spirit Visitation” as a pattern of empowerment and enablement during the critical moments and challenging circumstances faced every day by Christ’s followers.
