Highly respected Bible Teacher Rick Renner alerts the reader of the importance of examining or testing dreams, visions, and supernatural manifestations occurring in the world today.
His book “Testing the Supernatural” is written to provide the reader with practical tools to effectively test supernatural manifestations and delineate right from wrong in the realm of dreams, visions, and revelations.
Renner introduces principles for testing false prophets. Beginning with a Biblical model, he establishes the criteria for testing the authenticity of the dream, vision, or revelation by considering four questions. These questions can be used to determine other’s claims as well as verify your own supernatural experiences.
Other examples from the scriptures, including looking at specific examples, were used to verify the manifestation’s truth. I found the paradigm developed by the Ephesian Church helpful and instructive.
Rick Renner is recognized internationally as an author and for his broadcast “Discipling Nations.”
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
