Supernatural Transformation, Untapped Power Within

In his book “Unleashing Heaven’s Breath” Steve Hannett shares practical tools that open the Scriptures to the reader as a living epistle, an entryway to power, and a more intimate relationship with Jesus. This is Steve’s story of his miraculous healing from cancer.

“Unleashing Heaven’s Breath” is carefully researched, with well documented endnotes, biblical in content, anointed teaching, and inspirational in presentation. Steve is a gifted communicator, passionate in delivery, and humble in spirit. Steve’s prayer is that his readers will “Discover the Ultimate Secret to Releasing Signs, Wonders, and Miracles” available to Christ followers today.

I found the chapter summary points especially helpful. The reflective questions make the book a unique resource for individuals or for interactive Bible study in a small group or discipleship/mentoring relationship. The questions might also be used as a devotional journal for individual focus and personal application. Another inspiring feature is the declarative prayer statement provided at the end of each chapter. These prayers can be life changing.

Self-Deliverance Made Simple – Keys to Closing Every Door to the Enemy of Your Soul by Dennis and Dr. Jen Clark

Finding Freedom and Deliverance through Forgiveness – Taking Personal Responsibility for Our Spiritual Growth

In their book “Self-Deliverance Made Simple” Pastor Dennis Clark and Dr. Jen Clark provide readers with tools to help them understand and receive empowerment, self-deliverance from spiritual bondage and supernatural healing through forgiveness.

Pastors Dennis and Jen Clark work as a team pastoring the Kingdom Life Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina. They are founders of Full Stature Ministries and have developed a systematic proven approach to empower believers for ministering healing, freedom, and deliverance.

It is their desire to clear up confusion regarding God’s sovereignty, the continuation of spiritual gifts, and the demonstration of God’s power. They envision healing for churches and individuals that will result in well-adjusted families, and healthier churches.

Many readers will resonate with the pointers and “practice exercises” exercises that lead to experiencing peace while waiting on the Lord for His presence. I found the “Practices” on the subjects of forgiveness, gratefulness, healing loneliness, and overcoming fear especially significant.

Dr. Dennis shared his testimony of personal healing and how this has impacted his life and ministry. Dr. Jen told of her training in psychology, the misconception and error and of how through Clark’s teaching,  she received miraculous deliverance and transformation as she recognized the truth about the seat of our emotions, freedom through forgiveness, and how to tap into the supernatural peace of God.

The Clark’s writing is genuinely compassionate; their message holistic and reconciliatory. The book is scripturally based, carefully researched, and well documented.

Self-Deliverance Made Simple “is a source of inspiration and information for readers seeking to “make Jesus Christ” Lord of their life, to experience freedom, and to assume personal responsibility for their spiritual growth.

Authority to Heal – Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power by Randy Clark


Reviewed by: Richard R. Blake

 Foundational Evidence and Powerful Testimonies of God’s Miracle Healing Power

In his book “Authority to Heal – Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power” Randy Clark demonstrates the relevance of Biblical scholarship, Church history, and the formation of theological conclusions. Clark looks into Scriptures and the history of the Church to establish a Biblical foundation for divine healing, and the continuation of Spiritual gifts and a theology of supernatural empowerment, and the impartation of healing as a birthright available to Christians today.

 Examples of miraculous healing in the ministries of Moses, Elijah, Elisha and other O. T. prophets were used as prophetic indicators to point Israel to their coming Messiah. Jesus’ healing ministry in the New Testament fulfilled many of these prophecies which also confirm his identity as the Christ, the promised Messiah.

The book is filled with life lessons in walking for faith, understanding spiritual warfare, prayer, and stewardship. Amazing real-life stories are included which testify of authentic, verifiable miracles of healing and deliverance.

Clark is motivated by a heartfelt desire to clear up some of the confusion and misunderstanding, regarding the continuation of spiritual gifts and an expectation of the miraculous. Clark testifies of how his own personal healing experience moved him from academic thinking to recognizing the truth that, “God has always intended the ministry of healing to be a normative part of the life of the Church.”

Thoroughly researched and well documented “Authority to Heal” is scholarly, thought provoking and relevant for today; a valuable resource for both clergy and lay Christians. This is a book that will resonate with anyone ready to tap into God’s anointing by “Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God’s Healing Power.”

Experiencing the Heavenly Realm by Judy Franklin & Beni Johnson – A Book Review


Experiencing the Heavenly Realm – Keys to Accessing Supernatural Encounters

Reviewed By: Richard R. Blake

An Invitation to Encounter God in New and Deeper Ways – With a Heart Anchored in another World

“Experiencing the Heavenly Realm – Keys to Accessing Supernatural Encounters” is centered on the theme of invitation. Firstly, it is an invitation to encounter God and His love in new and deeper ways. Secondly it is Judy Franklin’s invitation to the reader to learn from lessons she learned along the way in her spiritual journey, supernatural experiences, and visions while accessing God in heavenly places. The book is designed to experience spiritual growth, and to a new realization of the power of prayer available to believers today.

In this new expanded edition, Beni Johnson’s first chapter “Healing the Whole Man” challenges the reader to recognize that God wants to connect with us, by laying aside the entanglements that keep us from experiencing these heavenly encounters.

The first eight chapters include activation exercises designed to help you, the reader, to “engage with the Holy Spirit and invite the presence of heaven into your life.” I started my own Encounter Journal to discover what it means to lay aside all the entanglements holding me back from entering into God’s rest, to experience a new awareness of His love and of His presence.

Judy Franklin preserves the beauty and innocence of a childlike faith; while exploring and interpreting the deeper hidden mysteries of God in light of the basic tenants of the church. Judy also relates lessons learned from object lessons, and symbols revealed in her visions, of spiritual healing, evangelism, and the ministry of intercessory prayer. Her visions and experiences are reminiscent of the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament visions of the Apostles, Peter, John, and Paul.

The book includes sincere testimonies of men and women, from every walk of life, who have had their own heavenly encounters. Beni Johnson brings an additional challenge and invitation, for the reader to understand from the scriptures that it’sGod’s intention to take us into His realm to uncover his glorious mysteries…to experience God’s love and be changed into His likeness.”

“Experiencing the Heavenly Realm” is for those willing to risk believing in a big God – for those hungering to know God personally, in an interactive unique relationship. The lessons learned will linger in the hearts and thoughts of the reader long after closing the last page of the final chapter.

Rediscover the 8th Mountain –  Wisdom from the Ancients

In the 1960’s Christians across America were singing the song “In Times like These You Need the Savior” written by Ruth Caye Jones. Now, sixty years later in their book “The Forgotten Mountain – The Place of Peace in a Time of Confusion” Don Nori Sr. and Ambassador Clyde Rivers are offering hope to another generation on a quest for peace in a time of confusion.

he end of chapter one I knew I was on the edge of a threshold, transcending man’s earthly contemporized perception, moving into the pronunciation of the wisdom of the ancients, those Old Testament prophets, who received their “wisdom from above,” who spoke of current events as far back as ancient Egypt, and of things to come in the last times. I knew I was moving into the realm of new vistas of prophetic insight and understanding into the truth of Scriptures often overlooked, that change the heart.

Much of the inspiration for the material, within the chapters, of this book come from the writings in the “Classic Wisdom on the Kingdom” by Dr. Myles Monroe,” included in the closing pages of this book.  Another important feature is the “Glossary of Terms That Change the Conversation.”

Dr. Nori and Ambassador Rivers write of the role of ambassadors. kings, and priests, and of inner and outer governance, of changing conversation. They bring a message of hope, divine love, inner fulfillment, personal destiny, and a yielded heart.
