Book Review: They Shall Expel Demons by Derek Prince

I’ve read They Shall Expel Demons by Derek Prince many times. I think it is a great book on real life spiritual warfare that many Christians try to ignore. Deliverance should be a normal part of the Christian life not something for specific ministries. It should be a part of everyone who believes in Jesus. The title of this book is explained in the gospel of Mark. “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark‬ ‭16:17-18‬ ‭KJV‬‬. I was excited to see how this classic book has been updated and expanded. In the expanded version, each chapter has several questions relating to the chapter making a study out of each informative chapter. Some examples of questions asked are Why can’t demons be fallen angels? What was Jesus’ one requirement for those who minister deliverance? What are four simple conditions people must meet to receive deliverance? To what areas of our lives must the Holy Spirit have access in order to indwell us? After the study questions there is a life application. The life application is further questions and activities to apply what the reader has learned to their own experiences. After the life application, there is a memory verse like Galatians 5:1 and 2 Corinthians 2:14. Each chapter ends with a faith response. The faith response is a prayer or declaration for the reader to walk in greater freedom through Jesus. I think that the expansions of this classic deliverance book will help many people in greater ways because it gives further insight and help. I encourage every believer to read this book because it’s a part of what all believers should be able to walk in. Now more than ever our walk as a believer in Jesus needs to be normal to walk in the supernatural.

Book Review: Destroying Fear by John Ramirez

Destroying Fear by John Ramirez was published just in time for the world to see fear manifest through the earth during the lockdown of the Coronavirus. Fear has been a tactic of the enemy in every generation since the fall of Adam and Eve. In Destroying Fear, John Ramirez explains how fear and worry prevent us from walking out the calling that God has created us to do. When we live free from fear and worry and we walk out the calling that we were created to do, we are dangerous to the enemy and his kingdom of darkness. Each chapter has stories of experiences from around the world and throughout history to show the reader that they are not alone in this spiritual battle. He explains how rejection, lowlifes, sickness, unworthiness, inferiority, failure, self-pity, guilt, shame, disgrace, suicide and isolation are all voices from fear. The most powerful part of this book is the pages of prayers and spiritual declarations that are found in every chapter. These prayers will help every reader become confident in their purpose in their life and their place in Gods Kingdom. I recommend a lot of books but this is the first book that I’m whole heartedly asking everyone to buy. Reading and praying through Destroying Fear by John Ramirez will change your life!

Book Review: Where is Wisdom by Scott James

My daughter reading “Where is Wisdom” by Scott James


Where is Wisdom by Scott James is a children’s book inspired by Job 28. I don’t think Ive ever studied Job 28 until I got this book to review. I don’t really like children’s story books that simplify the Scripture but I think that Scott James did a good job making Job 28 relatable to children. I love the vivid colors in the illustrations. On the darker pages where there is a cave or dark room, the illustrator uses the light to pop out of darkness and making the entire picture light. The only thing I could say negative about this book is that I think if the illustrations would be of people wearing modern clothing would make the reader realize that wisdom can be found today not just in the days of the Scripture. I love how the book points to Jesus. On the last page are three resources. First to remember the main Scripture verse Job 28:23,28. Second to encourage the reader to read Job 28 for themselves and see how it relates to the book by Scott James and then relating to Colossians 1:15-20 and Colossians 2:3 and how Jesus is our greatest treasure. Third, there are questions to think about to have a greater understanding of God and the treasures that He has hidden for us to find. I recommend this book to anyone with a child or a children’s library.

Book Review: 90 Days with THE GOD WHO speaks by B&H Publishing Group

90 Days with THE GOD WHO speaks, is developed from “The Gospel Project: Adult Leader Guide”, copyright 2012, by Lifeway Christian Resources. I wish they would have given credit to their team of authors because I like looking up other works of authors and following different ministries. With that being said, I love books about how God speaks, and is still speaking to today’s generations. The table of contents captivated me. Each title reveals a different thing to reflect about how God speaks. The book is laid out as a devotional is meant to be used in any way that would best add to your current study. I like how each devotional starts with scripture and has scripture reference throughout the story or explanation. Each devotional ends with questions to ponder, or things to do, like reading specific scripture, or praying about specific things related to the day’s devotional. I think that this is a good beginners guide to hearing God’s voice. I am disappointed that this book only talks about God speaking in Scripture. I’m also disappointed that it leaves the reader more hesitant about prophecy, because the only mention of prophecy, is of a prophecy that was wrong. The book says nothing about learning to hear God’s voice to the specific individual through the Holy Spirit.

          There is no mention about God speaking through dreams today, or to the people through scripture. I have researched dreams in Scripture, and learned that there are about 90 times that the word “dream”, can be found in scripture. My favorite is found in Job, (Job 33:14-18 NASB Indeed God speaks once, twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, sound sleep falls on men, they slumber in their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, seals their instruction, That He may turn man aside from his conduct, keep man from pride; He keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from passing over into Sheol.) There is no mention about how our own voice is powerful. God created everything with His voice, and He created us in His image, so our voices are also powerful, and have the power of life and death. (Proverbs 18:21 NASB Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.) We need to be careful with our words, because we will be held accountable for what we say. (Matthew 12:36 NASB But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.)

          I would recommend this book to specific denominations that tend to believe that God does not speak through prophets or dreams today. I feel that the book could be much more encouraging and impactful in the reader’s walk, if it covered how God not only spoke through scripture, and to the people of those times, but how God still speaks today.

Book Review: Discernment by Jane Hamon

Discernment by Jane Hamon is a must have for anyone wanting to grow in their ability to discern the spiritual and understand the things that God is showing us in this day and age. Jane Hamon uses personal experiences and stories to draw the reader into the concepts and how they still take place today. The book begins with explaining how to hear the voice of God. The rest of the book goes through various things that we need to discern today like the times, anointing, hearts, to lead, to build, the Spirit of God, angels, demons, the human heart, spiritual warfare, intercession and strongholds. The book ends with explaining how to have eyes to see and ears to hear. I enjoyed reading this book. I like how the author continually backs up what she is saying with scripture. I love how descriptive this book is. There is so much to gleam on with many activation activities that you could easily turn this book into a group study. I love the personal stories shared throughout this book. My favorite chapters are the chapters about discerning angels, discerning demons because of the testimonies in these chapters. I liked the chapters about discerning and identifying strongholds because of the detail in the definitions of each of the different characteristics of spiritual strongholds. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to grow in their spiritual discernment either as an individual or in a group setting.

Book Review: Which Shape Should I Be by Pamela Kennedy

Which Shape Should I Be by Pamela Kennedy is a funny book teaching shapes with beautiful illustrations by Holiday Conger. It consisted of 22 pages or 11 2page spreads. Each page spread has a rhyme about the shape and then a picture to find the shape. The rhyme that my daughter is looking at in the picture is about a heart. It says “Mom and I cut cookies shaped like hearts to have with tea. Pretend to eat the cookies made the way ours would be” On the opposite page there is a girl with a cookie tray with three cookies. One cookie is a heart, the second isn’t a circle and the third cookie is a star. My two year old likes pointing to the different shapes in this board book.

I highly recommend this book for any young child learning shapes or needing a book to build their reading confidence and fluency.
