If You Believe Miraculous Gifts Have Ceased, You’re in for a Big Surprise! What caused a former Dallas Seminary professor to believe that the miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit are being given today? What convinced someone skeptical about miracles that God still speaks and heals? A dramatic change took place in Jack Deere’s life when he took a fresh look at the Scriptures. He discovered that his arguments against miraculous gifts were based more on prejudice and lack of personal experience than on the Bible. As soon as Deere became a seeker instead of a skeptic, the Holy Spirit revealed himself in new and surprising ways. In Surprised by the Power of the Spirit, Deere provides a strong biblical defense for the Spirit’s speaking and healing ministries today. He also describes several reliable cases of people who were miraculously healed or who heard God speak in an unmistakable way. Finally, he gives sound advice for using spiritual gifts in the church. Written in a popular style, with the care of a scholar but the passion of personal experience, this book explores: - The real reason Christians do not believe in miraculous gifts - Responding to Charismatic abuses - Were miracles meant to be temporary? - Why God still heals "‘Must’ reading for all Bible-believing Christians. I wish with all my heart I could place it in the hands of every conservative evangelical." - James Robison, Life Outreach International

What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world. Designed for use as a college or seminary course, Conformed to His Image helps us build our lives on a fully biblical perspective. Exploring twelve approaches to Christian spirituality in depth, Dr. Kenneth Boa corrects our tendency to pick and compartmentalize. Pointing the way instead to an integrative, whole-life approach, Dr. Boa shows how each spiritual paradigm discussed is just one important facet in the gem of authentic and powerful New Testament living. With chapter overviews and objectives, questions for personal application, a glossary, and a list of key terms, Conformed to His Image will prove a defining text for the student, pastor, and church leader of today . . . and tomorrow. 12 Facets of the Complete Christian Life Relational Spirituality: Loving God Completely, Ourselves Correctly, and Others Compassionately Paradigm Spirituality: Cultivating an Eternal versus a Temporal Perspective Disciplined Spirituality: Engaging in the Historical Differences Exchanged Life Spirituality: Grasping Our True Identity in Christ Motivated Spirituality: A Set of Biblical Incentives Devotional Spirituality: Falling in Love with God Holistic Spirituality: Every Component of Life under the Lordship of Christ Process Spirituality: Being versus Doing, Process versus Product Spirit-Filled Spirituality: Walking in the Power of the Spirit Warfare Spirituality: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil Nurturing Spirituality: A Lifestyle of Discipleship and Evangelism Corporate Spirituality: Encouragement, Accountability, and Worship

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

Western society is in crisis, the result of our culture's embrace of naturalism and postmodernism. At the same time, the biblical worldview has been pushed to the margins. Christians have been strongly influenced by these trends, with the result that the personal lives of Christians often reflect the surrounding culture more than the way of Christ, and the church's transforming influence on society has waned. In Kingdom Triangle, J.P. Moreland issues a call to recapture the drama and power of kingdom living. He examines and provides a penetrating critique of these worldviews and shows how they have ushered in the current societal crisis. He then lays out a strategy for the Christian community to regain the potency of kingdom life and influence in the world. Drawing insights from the early church, he outlines three essential ingredients of this revolution: ? Recovery of the Christian mind ? Renovation of Christian spirituality ? Restoration of the power of the Holy Spirit He believes that evangelical Christianity can mature and lead the surrounding society out of the meaningless morass it finds itself in with humility and vision.

This book is a personal testimony of a Christian woman that began to hear the Lord speak by His Holy Spirit. While she was driving in her car one night she was surprised by the Holy Spirit and was surprised by the clarity in which she could hear His voice. The book tells about her thrilling adventures as He taught her to hear Him with great clarity. He set her on a path of journaling His words and showed her what He desired in a relationship. He began taking her on many adventures and teaching her by way of the Holy Spirit through many visions. The Lord taught her about His ways and His kingdom. He taught her of the love He had for people. What's more, He taught her to pray by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. The book is, in part, a study on what the Bible says about God speaking. It also describes a God that still wants to communicate just as he did in many scriptural accounts. It encourages the body of Christ to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.

Edwards y el Gran Despertar Según una tradición, no estaba programado que Edwards predicara en la capilla de Enfield el 8 de Julio [1741], pero lo hizo en sustitución de otro predicador. Aparentemente, el Gran Despertar no había llegado aún al distrito y reinaba allí una total indiferencia de que sucediera o no, tanto que cristianos de distritos vecinos habían dedicado casi toda la noche anterior a la oración, no fuera que “mientras las lluvias divinas sucedían todo alrededor”, no las hubiera en Enfield. Edwards tomó como su texto Deuteronomio 32:35: “A su tiempo su pie resbalará”, repitiendo un sermón que había predicado en su propia iglesia poco antes sobre el tema: “Pecadores en manos de un Dios airado”. [Eleazer] Wheelock reportó a [Benjamín] Trumbull cómo los presentes, que había caracterizado como “indiferente y presumida”, tanto habían cambiado antes de finalizado el sermón que se habían “humillado con una convicción tremenda de su pecado y peligro”. –Iain Murray, Jonathan Edwards: A New Biography (Edinburgo, Banner of Truth, 1987), 168. La predicación por medio de la cual el espíritu de estupor fue abatido en la década de 1730, era escrutadora y convincente. Se estaba levantando un grupo de hombres para quienes la gravedad del pecado, la posibilidad de una profesión falsa de fe en Cristo y la indiferencia de un mundo perdido les era una carga apremiante. Detrás de sus declaraciones públicas estaba su visión de Dios y de la eternidad. Sus valles de humillación personal se habían convertido en valles de visión y, como dijera alguien que siguió en los pasos de Edwards siglos después: “Cuando los pastores captan una vista del valle de visión, y del abismo sin fondo en el cual cada hueso se va hundiendo, sienten que es importante advertir y alarmar a los pecadores, y solo entonces predican para muerte, predican para la eternidad, predican para el tribunal de Dios, predican para el cielo y predican también para el infierno”.—Ibid, 133. Autor: Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
