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.

In his book “Angel Armies – Releasing the Warriors of Heaven” Dr. Tim Sheets delivers a powerful apostolic message at a time when many theologians are prone to “explain away the supernatural realm.” Dr. Sheets tells of a recurring prophetic vision, a revelation of a Holy Spirit movement of supernatural power coming like a vortex of revival fire.  He describes a Third Great Awakening, unprecedented, ablaze with the burning power of Christ’s presence in the greatest revival the world has ever seen.

Dr. Sheets writes from a biblical viewpoint, revealing amazing insight and understanding into the nature and ministries of angelic forces. Dr. Sheet’s has been diligent in prayer and study in preparation of this powerful in depth, life altering revelation.

Step by step Dr. Sheets explains from the scriptures how angels minister to us as heirs of salvation, how they assist us in fulfilling our destiny, and as ministering spirits in natural and spiritual realms. He includes instruction on King David’s understanding of angels, and on the intrinsic nature of angels. I received a new understanding into the role of angels and their ministry in the lives of the apostles Peter and Paul, in the life of Jesus, and from Old Testament examples of Gideon, Joshua, and Daniel.

The Person, Power, and Presence of the Holy Spirit – Authentic Christian Living

Within the first page of David Diga Hernandez’s book “Carriers of Glory – Becoming a Friend of the Holy Spirit” I knew I was about to receive a unique message from God through His Holy Spirit, a message that would leave “a major mark on the timeline of my personal and spiritual growth.”

I found myself immersed in the desire to know and experience more of the Holy Spirit’s transforming power for consistently living a life of holiness. I gained new insights into the importance of humility in the realm of prayer when threatened by spiritual warfare. Hernandez carefully details the work of the Holy Spirit in the body life of the church, the source, oneness of the Godhead, the categories and nature of the spiritual gifts, and the Spirit’s prompting and guidance ministry to the believer.  He goes on to develop the concept of being intentional in cultivating a growing relational friendship with the Spirit. The final chapter answers the most frequently asked questions on the fundamental Pentecostal teaching on the doctrine of the person of the Holy Spirit.

Hernandez’s writing is penetrating and anointed; an inspired passionate Charismatic message with informative insight into the Biblical teaching on the friendship and person, on the teaching of the Holy Spirit.

Identity and Destiny – A Message of Hope and Redemption

In their book “Created with Purpose” Johannah Clark Leach and Victoria West Henady share their stories that are testimonies to the grace of God in their lives. The authors write with transparency identifying personal vulnerabilities experienced in their youth. They pass along the lessons they learned by breaking a pattern of destructive choices and of being healed of brokenness.

The book is divided into two parts. Part One looks at the personal journey of discovering and becoming “yourself.” These chapters can become a tool for the reader to find encouragement, comfort, and hope, especially for anyone facing difficulty in discovering their identity in Christ.

Part Two helps the reader in areas of living with grace, sharing your story, fulfilling your destiny, and unlocking your dreams. I received new insights into the stewardship of the mind, taking control of our thoughts, communicating effectively, and the importance of a positive attitude. I also liked their approach to guiding the reader by providing practical specific steps to hone in on activation in their walk of faith that ignites faith in others.

Johannah Clark Leach founded Dance Revelation. Victoria West Henady has a Master’s Degree in Counseling and works with Johanna’s father, Dr. Randy Clark, in the organization Global Awakening and in the dance studio with Johannah. Johannah and Victoria have a passion for mentoring young teens and youth, in Christian values, social skills, and working through finding their identity and destiny.

This is a book that will resonate with a new generation of youth who are focused on Christ’s mandate to discipleship, discovering purpose in life and stepping into their destiny through understanding the deeper meaning of loving God, self and others in light of the redemptive love provided in Jesus.
