More than a book; it's an experience!
I have read the book Ã¢ÂÂOpen HeavenÃ¢ÂÂ by Tommy Tenney twice in a month. It is great! It is extraordinary!
It is so rich in fresh revelation on true worship and GodÃ¢ÂÂs glory in our lives that it is extremely difficult to comment on the book in a few sentences.
Anybody interested in experiencing GodÃ¢ÂÂs presence in a true, fresh, deep, intimate way should read this book.
Tommy Tenney has an extraordinary gift of writing on Ã¢ÂÂhighÃ¢ÂÂ things of God in a way that is easy to understand; he stirs up the longing for more of GodÃ¢ÂÂs touch and presence in our lives and on the earth.
The author takes well known biblical stories, notions and passages and gives them a new meaning and depth. And his goal is to shake us a little bit and lead us from a grey zone to the higher zone of GodÃ¢ÂÂs Throne where we can experience a true touch and life-transforming, healing and delivering power from Open Heaven.
Who will benefit from the book?
Those desiring to get nearer to God and to experience more of Him in their lives wonÃ¢ÂÂt be dissapointed; theyÃ¢ÂÂll get a fresh boost of encouragement to more passionately love, seek, worship and serve God.

A passionate call to worship
This book is a passionate call to worship, real God centered worship that pursues God for his own sake. If you want to stay the same leave this book alone but if you are truly open to God read this prayerfully. This is not a book of nice blessed thoughts but a provocative look at how God should be at the centre of our lives. You will find no neat formulas in this book but rather a passionate pursuit of God. Our God delights in having a deep relationship with his children but that is that on his terms alone, we are called to stop confining God to our own formulas and realize that the almighty god is also the lover of our souls. Our relationship is based firmly in his grace and that is affirmed on every page.
as we worship God he will shine the light of his holy presence upon us this will call us to deep repentance for our neglect of him and his ways. Tommy Tenney believes that if we encounter God this way we will know his cleansing and gracious forgiveness. This will enable us to realize a deeper closeness to God as he opens the heavens to us.
We are taught that we need to seek the anointer not the anointing, we have got so accustomed to seeking the anointing we have tended to forget the God who anoints us.
It is a time to give up on seeker sensitive services and replace them with Spirit sensitive services, we should not be entertaining man but rather entertaining God. He highlights the path to getting to this place is not only repentance but also adversity that hammers out our character. He also shows that as Jacob was blessed and limped as a result we need similar deep encounters that will mark us for the rest of our lives.
Are you and I open to such life transforming teaching that leads right into the presence of God? if we answer affirmitively we can become channels of blessing to our families, Churches and Nations but we will need to count the cost.
This book has one passion the worship of God and for those of us with tidy theological minds its message may not seem to fit all our neat categories BUT the author puts the first thing first and that is the glory of God. If you find yourself questioning some minor detail in the book, I plead with you to put that aside for the moment so that you will clearly hear God calling you to worship him.
Only buy this book if you are willing for God to change your life. Are you willing to be a doorkeeper in GodÃ¢ÂÂs house, holding open the door of GodÃ¢ÂÂs presence if so buy this book and read it prayerfully..

He's still a God-chaser!
In this book he describes very well the frustration of church when we are seeking God's hand and not God's face. He's hoping that there are other worshipers God's kids, out there that feel the same. Scripture is given to show God's desire for our presence and that God isn't looking to feed "casual nibblers but that he feeds the hungry". A sobering presentation of the fact that we often live our lives that basically say, "God we know how to go on without you". And we also run our church services and the things we do FOR God, in the same way. Learn how to carry the "Blue Flame" of God's presence.
