“Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible” by David Diga Hernandez – A Book Review

Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible

Truths on the Roles of the Holy Spirit Found in the Scriptures – Genesis through Revelation

David Diga Hernandez introduces the reader to nine symbols of the Holy Spirit in his book “Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible.” Beginning in chapter one David delineates between; specific mentions, symbolic mentions, and subtle mentions of the Holy Spirit. The next 66 chapters reveal references to the Holy Spirit in of the books in the Bible.

David begins with his childhood memories to relate stories of the supernatural power of God: accounts of divine rescues, unusual occurrences, miraculous healing, and angelic encounters. These stories are interspersed throughout the text and illustrate clearly the biblical examples of miracle and mystery revealed in the Old and New Testaments and provide spontaneous glimpses into the very heart of God in the person of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. David’s fervency and enthusiastic spirit are contagious.

As I was reading, taking copious notes and enjoying an extended period of study, I was moved to stop often, allow the Holy Spirit speak to my heart, and to respond to the awareness of His presence in an intense sense of worship.

“Encountering the Holy Spirit in Every Book of the Bible” will resonate with Bible teachers and students alike, who are looking for in-depth teaching, on revival, pneumatology, and new dimensions in the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

  • Instruction with Points to Note

The Principle & Power of Kingdom Citizenship – Keys to Experiencing Heaven on Earth By D. Myles Munroe – A Book Review


Reviewed by Richard R. Blake

A Training Guide for Citizens of the Kingdom of God in the context of the Present Day

Dr. Myles Munroe has a gift for taking a complicated concept, breaking it down into bite-sized chunks, bisecting and dissecting these into visual word pictures that open to the reader a new understanding of eternal truth.

In “The Principle & Power of Kingdom Citizenship” Dr. Munroe helps the reader understand the characteristics of a Kingdom, the rights and benefits of citizenship, and the principle of dual citizenship. Dr. Munroe’s gifted teaching style empowers and enables the reader to recognize and enter into their rights as citizens of God’s kingdom.

A whole chapter is devoted to exploring the uniqueness of Kingdom citizenship drawing from the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, from the prophecies of Isaiah, and Micah, as well as from the book of Acts and from the writings of the Apostle.

Dr. Munroe discerns truth from the scriptures and illuminates these same truths to challenge the reader to accept the responsibility of citizenship, to exercise their authority as ambassadors of Christ, and to impact the world around them through the power of the Kingdom of God. “The Principle & Power of Kingdom Citizenship” is a tribute to the legacy of Dr. Myles Munroe.
