In case you missed it, I've added a new Category - - Book Reviews. I just thought I would share my analysis of those books I've read recently (are currently reading) that may be of interest to others in the Look Up Fellowship community.
Today, it is my pleasure to provide you with the first Book Review published here! It's of a book called "Spiritual Warfare: The Invisible Invasion" by Thomas R. Horn who is also the CEO of Raiders News Network (RNN).
We all know Ephesians 6:12 that reads, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." However, I'm willing to bet that most people are like me, and that beyond a mere acknowledgement of that truth we rarely give spiritual warfare much thought or consider how it is being conducted on a second-by-second basis in our daily lives.
This book certainly opened my eyes! I've had it sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time now, and just never took the time to read it. About 2-3 weeks ago, I begin to hear it calling my name so I picked it up and started reading. If it weren't for the holidays and end of the year rush I probably would've finished it in half the time it took me to read it from start to finish because it's that compelling.
In this book, Thomas Horn considers our cultural plight from a spiritual perspective. Some questions that he addresses include:
Can modern nations be besieged by ancient demonic powers?
Is there a cause-and-effect relationship between our cultural disintegration and the unseen activity of demons?
In attempting to answer these and many other important questions, Horn also presents biblical solutions to the evil plaguing our society today. He gives the reader the spiritual weapons they need to reclaim their communities.
Personally, it was chilling to read about Horn's own experiences with spiritual warfare as well as the forces and tactics employed by Satan on a regular basis to destroy individuals and communities.
I was also intrigued to learn that this book was published back in 1998, and yet it's even more relevant today than it was back then (already over a decade ago!).
My copy of this book has underlined sections and notes in the margins on just about every page since that's how involved I became in the subject matter. So, that being said, it's difficult for me to pick out only a few sections to include here.
Instead, I'll simply promise to return to and refer to this great work in the future. I'll also leave you with this excerpt that Horn included in his book to sum things up for you.
In "The Rebirth of America," John Price notes, "Repentant Christians in prayer will be able to do more for America than all the government programs rolled into one." I found that to be quite appropriate for us today.
In the end, Horn reminds us that revival is the inrush of the Spirit into the body that threatens to become a corpse. That's what America needs.
Do yourself a favor and pick-up a copy of this book as it's well worth the time and investment.
