How to Listen, Hear, and Apply God’s Word in Everyday Living

Worldwide ministry leader, Ed Delph, and David Lake, pastor, business owner, and marketplace ministry collaborate in this deeply challenging analysis of the principal of the Greek word Rhema as used in the Word of God. In their book “Redefining Rhema – Responding to God’s Voice Releasing His Purposes on Earth” address a Biblical reality of hearing first and speaking second.

The authors are forthright, confident, and authoritative in their presentation. Their work is well documented with a balance of apostolic gift driven ministry and mainstream Christian theology. Pastors, Global Christian Leaders, and other Visionary Missional Leaders highly endorse the book.

Important evidence of validation of the principles presented in the book is found in the chapter “Illuminating Leaders, and Influencers, and mind molders.” In this chapter both men relate testimonies of God’s working in their life story through, a faith-infused utterance from God, providing illumination and direction, clarity and instruction in the next step in their lives.

“Redefining Rhema – Responding to God’s Voice, Releasing His Purposes on Earth” is important reading for Christians worldwide, ready to take the challenge of  “hearing God’s Word” and then “releasing” the message “in the marketplace sanctuary where God has placed you.”

Bob and Laura Larson have collaborated in the writing of “Set Your Family Free.”  This guide book is designed to provide biblically based counseling, founded on scriptural principles, and sound psychological practice, combined with spiritual and emotional Inner Healing.

“Set Your Family Free” is uniquely different from Bob Larson’s other books. In this book the reader is provided with a proactive plan for using biblical knowledge to raise spiritually equipped children with an understanding that will enable them to avoid falling into demonic strongholds by using an offensive approach when facing spiritual warfare.

Using a case study as an example Laura describes a plan for purposeful parenting that resulted in repentance, restoration, and healing. An important step in this instance was the necessity to help these parents recognize the dangers of the previous generation’s predispositions, before they could resolve the negative spiritual impact these negative behaviors on their son.

Dozens of similar stories tell of ways that Satan attacks families, and tries to destroy marriages. Therapeutic interaction, and deliverance prayers may be needed to restore these families to a biblical model.

The logical progression and organization of the material in “Set Your Family Free” heightens reader understanding, assimilation of the principles, and for taking the action steps necessary to make application of these principles to real life issues. Hundreds of other keys and suggestions are presented with positive suggestions to produce spiritual growth, and victory over the powers of darkness.

“The Seer’s Path” is uniquely organized using the term “activation” as it relates to specific chapter themes, prayers, and discussion questions. I found the “activation prayers” to be wonderful models, preparing hearts for worship, thanksgiving, and introspection, leading to soul searching confession, and commitment. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are carefully designed for self-examination, leading to a commitment to take specific action.
