From Col Stringer’s Introduction.
The power of the mouth, when in agreement with the image of the heart, is awesome. It can change lives, personalities and situations. But faith is mean’t to be a rest – not a work! The tragedy is that few Christians are aware of, or ever tap into, this realm of the spirit. Sadly, many live (and die) below their blood brought rights.
Proverbs 29:18 says: “Where there is no vision, the people perish…”. Strong’s Concordance says the word for “vision” is the Hebrew word “chazown” which means “mental or spiritual sight, a dream, a revelation”. It comes from the root word which means to “gaze at and mentally perceive”. The writer could be describing spiritual eyes, or, the modern term of “visualising”. Without a goal, vision, visualising – you will perish! Your dream or vision is your pictured goal!
There is a place in God’s Grace where we can flow with the Holy Ghost, where our struggle ceases, where we can be borne aloft by the very breath of God. I believe God has created a part of our souls, our minds – the imagination, which is a key to moving in the realm of the spirit. Our mind is the pendulum which contacts both the physical and the spiritual realm. Unfortunately modern man has almost lost the use of this ability and has become “spiritually dull”. I refer to believers here, the world is spiritually dead to the things of God.
But times are changing, there is a new breed of man, a new calibre of believer arising, men and women who are no longer content to play at Christianity, but desire with all their hearts to live and move in the realm of the Spirit. We live in exciting but also dangerous times, I believe we are about to witness one of the greatest outpourings of the Holy Spirit this world has ever experienced. My prayer is that you, the reader, will be ready, that you will allow the Holy Spirit to make His Word alive in your heart.
Read this book with an open mind, a teachable spirit, and allow the Spirit of God to lift you to new heights of soaring in the realm of the spirit. `If deep within you the voice of the Holy Spirit whispers “Yes!” to the things I will share with you here, then begin to use it. Your life, your walk with God, your prayer time and faith will never be the same again!
This is the fourth printing of a book originally published in 2006.
