This book has changed my consceptions on authority. Since i started studying Kenneth Hagins books my spiritual life has gone to upper levels ! This man of GOD has passed away but his books are still touching my heart by some how making me going forth. Thank GOD for everything that his ministry represents to me and the lives of many.
This guy was given up by 5 doctors to die of major organic heart conditions and a blood disease as he was near complete paralysis, but He took God at His Word and believed it for Truth only. He pastored a church for over 12 years with his wife where they didn't burry one church member from disease, sickness, pre-mature death, etc., as all were healed by Christ through Faith in the Word. He just believed God and would continue praying for his church people until they were healed, and all of them always were as Kenneth E. Hagin believed (Acts 10:38). After researching this book and comparing it to the scriptures it is completely accurate with the Word. You cannot read this and read the Bible scriptures and find any difference between the two teachings. I never learned this in church, but I wish they had taught it in the churches I went to. I would love to find a church one day that teaches this full Truth, rather than the lies of Satan, although God bless everyone especially the church. He adds nothing to the Word and takes nothing away from it. Kenneth didn't write this, but God wrote it through Him and this book highlights the written Word that gives us Authority over the enemy and all his power (Luke 10:19). I personally had a swelling problem within my brain and believed the Word literally and was healed from my sickbed when I could barely even move by believing Christ (1 Peter 2:24) (Is. 53:5) (Ex. 3:14) (Jn 8:58) and these scriptures Hagin highlighted in this book and other books God wrote through him including God's Word on Divine Healing, The Will of God in Prayer, Baptism in the Holy Spirit and Foundations for Faith. If you don't believe my review of this bok, at least look upon the physical healing Kenneth E. Hagin experienced and believe on that miracle from God. This is the best book besides the Bible I've ever read.
This book fascinates, no doubt. At least for some time, until you learn, that discipleship does not depend on principles on how we should do the things Jesus called us to do, but it depends on the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I was stuck to this book and all of Hagin's writings I knew, because they offers the quick solutions that are totally controllable with our mind. Which is the classic dead end street, because it does not really understand the growth of a disciple. Example Luke 9,1. Jesus gives the disciples at a specific point authority to heal all sickness, when they were with him quite some time, and learned much from him, face to face. While Hagin teached that every born again already has this authority since day one. Hagin's teaching is built on only a few scriptures, sometimes even twisted (example: if you know much of his and of other people's teaching in the word of faith movement, read the verses before an after Proverbs 6,2, and see, what Proverbs 6:2 is really about, and what they want to make it say) or even totally ignoring many other verses, that do not support the theology or principles he made of the others. Sometimes it may works the way he says, but only because it is then the plan of God in this situation. As Jesus says, he can only do what he sees his Father doing (Jn 5,19), so it all depends on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and not on principles Hagin seemed to see in the bible. Oh yeah, a half star for using at least a few scriptures. And by the way, I believe in healing, but I do not ignore scriptures like John 3,35-36, 1 Corinthians 11:32, Galatians 5,19-21 or James 5,16 on the topic. Greetings
