This book is a really good read. I was skeptical, being more accustomed to theologically heavy books (Francis Schaeffer, C.H. Spurgeon, etc); and this book was, but didn't seem like it by it's cover. Was a great book I'd recommend every believer who wants to better understand their identity in Christ. I learned a lot from this book, you might as well.
Kris Vallotton is a false prophet, and you only have to read the first two pages to understand why. The whole premise of the book is based on a "conversation" he has with God (while awake). As such, he is claiming to report the very words of God. This is dangerous ground, and 1 John 4:1 tells us to "test the spirits to see whether they are from God". How do we test spirits? We compare what they say to the real, unchanging revelation of God in Scripture.
I will quote from page 22 words that Kris claims to have come from the very mouth of God: "Moses was born to lead the Israelites out of slavery. Moses had to be raised in Pharaoh's house so that he would learn how to be a prince and not have a slave's mentality. A leader who is in slavery internally cannot free those who are in slavery externally. The first 40 years of Moses' life were just as important as the 40 years he spent in the wilderness."
Kris also says this about Moses on page 22: "I'm sure that everyone would laugh at his jokes, even if they weren't funny. Because Moses knew he was significant, he had confidence. I saw that without confidence he never would have felt empowered to do anything to help his Hebrew brothers."
So Kris is claiming special insight from God about Moses. One problem. What he says about Moses completely contradicts what the Bible says.
If being raised in the "royalty" of Pharaoh's house was so important, why does the author of Hebrews write this in chapter 11? "By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh's daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin." Did you catch that? Better to be mistreated with the people of God than enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. So much for the benefits of royalty.
But there's more.
What does the BIBLE tell us about the "confidence" of Moses? This is what Moses said to God after God told him to go to Egypt "Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue." (Exodus 4:11) Wow. The life of the party? Full of confidence? The quick witty guy with all the good jokes? Nope. Moses said "Please send someone else." (Exodus 4:13)
So what does God do? Does he remind Moses of his "royal heritage"? Does he give him a pep talk? No. He sends someone else to speak for Moses. Who does he send? Someone from the royal court who understands they are a prince? No, he sends Moses' brother (who was raised as a slave) to speak for the guy raised in royalty. The irony is rich.
Are there any slivers of truth in this book? Sure. But that's to be expected. Here's what Paul said about guys like Kris Vollaton: "For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their ends will correspond to their deeds." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).
So don't be duped by the good reviews from people in Kris' church. This is a dangerous book written by a false prophet who is leading people away from the gospel. God doesn't use people because they are raised in royalty. Who does he use?
"God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him." (1 Cor. 1:27-29) Amen!
I've given copies of this book to friends and relatives. I believe that too many believers don't really comprehend what we have in Christ and this is an uplifting, scriptural account of what we have. God bless and may you keep getting doctrinally sound books like this. Love, Ed
This book has come at just the right time for me as the Lord has already spoken to my heart about our Blood-bought destiny as a kingdom of priests to our God and to reign on the earth. Kris Vallotton's personal story impacted me greatly and convicted me that I have not completely thrown off the shackles of self-doubt and assumed my identity as a daughter of the Most High King. For anyone who is hungry for more of God or who longs to see His Kingdom come on earth, this is the book.
