In Thirsting for Life and Reality, author Karl Loescher challenges believers to realize their full potential in Christ. He poses difficult questions, and challenges some commonly held beliefs, in order to help us truly understand all that the Father has available for His children.
Many of us live our day-to-day lives with only a partial understanding of what it means to be a Spirit-filled believer. Unfortunately, our narrow comprehension of God has limited the power in which many of us operate. In an attempt to give the church vision and direction, Karl explains several commonly used terms, such as justification, sanctification and glorification. He also discusses baptism in the Holy Spirit, manifestation of faith, the genetic fall of man and our inherited sin nature, the trap of self-deliverance, the fruit of the Spirit, and the role of gifts and talents.
Karl Loescher's genuine, God-given revelations for the body of Christ will surely inspire you to pursue all that the Father has in store for you. It is God's desire for you as His child to mature, and to pass from mere religion into a continual thirsting for the fullness of Christ, until suddenly you experience God's Life and Reality that satisfies!
This is a great book! I first met Karl Loescher through my itinerate prophetic ministry years ago, at which time God had imparted a word for ministry that would bless and inspire the Lord's people in the direction they should go. I believe that through this book, this word, among others spoken to Karl over the years is coming to pass.
Reading this work will inspire you and change how you see things! I'm not an avid reader; so going into this I doubted my wisdom in agreeing to review this book. Yet as I read and re-read it, I was happy I had taken on this project. This was a time of learning for me, and it was a time of enjoying the revelation God has given to my friend Karl.
Karl's calling and gifting empowers him to impart to people through writing. This book is well written presenting a strong case for the subject at hand. This is a thorough study, involving a tremendous amount of research balanced with much scripture and insight.
I believe these are things that people should know and I encourage the reader to press through to the end; you will be greatly blessed. I feel there is an added benefit from a re-read, to be able to get all the truth and revelation contained herein. Karl had brought us great truth, and has fully explored it. I want to personally thank him for the effort and time he took to get this accomplished.
I appreciate that this book can speak to new believers to create a good foundation of truth as well as those who have been Christians for many years that need a deeper walk with God. There is truly something for everyone. I believe God is raising Karl up to be a voice of change in this hour that will take on subjects that people have institutionalized or become complacent with.
Pray therefore, and ask the Lord to help you glean what He is saying to you in the words of this book, you will be presently surprised as I was. You and I need this revelation. With it we will grow in Christ and experience new realms of glory and anointing! Enjoy! --Mike Boland, Church Planter, Pastor, and Prophetic Minister
