Exciting Insights and Essentials to Entering into and Experiencing the Realm of the Spirit

In her book “The Seer’s Path, an Invitation to Experience Heaven, Angels, and the Invisible Realm of the Spirit” Ana Werner describes her incredible encounters with the Lord Jesus.  Throughout the book Werner addresses questions regarding the gift of the Seer, the marvels of heaven, spiritual; warfare, revelatory visions, and evangelizing.

“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.

This is a book that will resonate with anyone seeking a deeper understanding of what it means to experience more of God, the fullness of his power and the reality of knowing his presence

Werner is passionate about her message, direct in her approach, and powerful in her presentation. She is confident in her writing style and known for her transparency, spirit filled ministry, and love for sharing the heart of Jesus and the message of the gospel.

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


Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

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.

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.”
