Excellent, excellent, excellent! Great read and it not only helps you understand people more, but also helps you to become aware of who you can really trust to be your true friend. I wish I would of had a book like this in my younger years walking with the Lord it could of saved me a lot of heartache. But praise God better late than never and now I know how to choose my friends and acquaintances more wisely after all most people especially Christians don't intentionally set out to hurt you they just don't know any better and with God's help and the understanding this book has given me concerning false friendships, betrayals, etc. life has just become a lot easier. I give this book a five * rating
I so love this cover-- It drew my eyes to it. So of course I needed to get it to read.
The temptation not to forgive hit me right between the eyes-- why well because I've been wrestling with the idea of what my older sister had done to not only my Mother but my sister and me. I could for give her easier if it were just me but our whole family. I go to God in prayer he is the only one that can guide me.
This book is only 243 pages but it carries a great message for all who read it and react upon the words. There's places in this book you will want to stop think back on your life and see what you need to do about those circumstances., then above all else pray for guidance in what God wants you to do maybe different then your thoughts on it.
Learn what to do with betrayal we all go through -- some times with just people we meant, maybe a person we thought of as a friend or even one of our family members.
Have you heard of calling Someone an "Old Goat" or does that really tell my age? Well actually it's not being disrespectful -- but a term to identifying a person who was always butting heads with everyone and noising into situations where they were not invited-- know someone like that?
Few believers need to read the resume of Judas Iscariot, the personally chosen apostle of Christ who will fully chose to betray the Savior= ( I know this but are you like me and did not know his last name)?
Judas Goat was the name of an actual goat especially trained to work at a slaughter house -- This is interesting to read how this goat reminds you of Judas and so it is called =Judas Goat you'll have to get this book and see what this says.
There's chapters on who is sitting in your third chair very interesting makes you think==
There's Chapter on Believers who are Vexed By A Devil hmm= Read Matthew 15:22, KJV
this is a must have. I recommend this book highly.
I received this wonderful book free from Booketeria for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed our entirely my own and no one else's. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest.
Perry Stone in his new book, "The Judas Goat" published by Charisma House helps us How to Deal With False Friendships, Betrayals, and the Temptation Not to Forgive.
From the back cover: When people you trust betray you
Betrayal by enemies is expected, but when it comes from family and friends, it can be devastating. Perry Stone uses the intriguing example of a Judas goat to show you how to deal with the betrayal in a biblical way and find the strength to forgive.
A Judas goat is an actual goat that is raised with the sheep in the field; eating with them, sleeping with them, and generally gaining their trust. When the time comes to lead the sheep into the slaughterhouse, the sheep will follow the Judas goat into specially marked pens, the back of trucks, and in some instances into the slaughterhouse itself. The Judas Goat makes a strong correlation between this goat and the people in your lives who are operating with ulterior motives, helping you understand:
Â· The betraying strategy of potential Judas goats in your life
Â· The three levels of relationships and whom you should let into your inner circle of trust
Â· How to address false rumors and lies from those close to you
Â· The critical danger of unforgiveness, and more!
To have someone betray you is one of the most hurtful acts that can happen to you. Someone you trusted, someone you thought was your friend suddenly, without warning, turned on you and their act leaves you open and exposed. At some point, to some degree, it is probably going to happen to everyone. King David said it happened to him by someone who ate at his table, meaning one of his best friends. It happened to Jesus in both Judas and with Peter. Perry Stone has given us a way to heal if betrayal has already happened to us and a way to deal with it if it has not happened yet. I believe that this book should be read slowly and carefully and then put on a shelf where it can be referred to easily if need be. It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they, too, can heal and be prepared for any betrayal that may happen to them.
