John Hagee may be one of the most interesting preachers in the world today. He is the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational charismatic megachurch with more than 19,000 active members, according to John Hagee Ministries.
Hagee believes in traditional Pentecostal practices, the absolute authority of the scripture, baptism by immersion, and evangelism. However, his relationship with Israel, his social and political activities, and many of his books are considered controversial to many people, yet one can trace his every statement to something inside the Holy Bible. Herein lies what sets his detractors on edge: if God is with Hagee, then who can be against him?
Hagee's newest book is The Power of the Prophetic Blessing: An Astonishing Revelation for a New Generation, and the book has been released in 2012 during one of the worst global economies to ever plague the world, a time when prosperity sermons are a favorite among preachers of many denominations and demanded by many congregations. If you pick up this book looking for a magic genie to delivery your every wish, you'll be disappointed. The cornerstone of Hagee's new book is that true peace and wealth come not from Donald Trump or the lottery, but from God, and God can bless man, as well as man can bless God. "When God blesses man, it is to bestow good health, abundant success, and prosperity, both materially and spiritually. When man blesses God, it is presented in the forms of thanksgiving, reverence, obedience, praise, and worship. When a man blesses his fellow believer, he recites the Priestly Blessing of Numbers 6:22-27 and then proclaims the Holy Spirit-inspired Prophetic Blessing."
As you read The Power of the Prophetic Blessing: An Astonishing Revelation for a New Generation, you will discover how this divine proclamation, guided by the Holy Spirit, will supernaturally reform your life and the lives of those you love. The book is richly researched, proven by an eight-page Notes section in the back. The book is beautifully composed with his theme divided into three sections and eleven chapters. Each chapter is tellingly dotted with signposts called "THINK on THIS," short but memorable points that capture the gist of the text you are reading. The book is structured so you can easily pick it up and put it down, but you may want to first read the book from cover to cover to absorb the full effect.
Overall, the book's layout may seem like an extended exposition of well-known Bible stories explained by Hagee and amplified through the wealth of knowledge he has gained through his many decades of research. Every chapter focuses on something related to how you can bring God's prophetic blessing into your own life and work. Hagee's interpretations are solidly based on traditional Biblical values, and he never strays too far from God's word. You'll find the book also personalized by some appropriate anecdotes from his life.
The book builds to the final pages, where everything described in the hundreds of Bible stories dovetails to eight Proclamations, where the power and majesty of the Prophetic Blessings of God to His people are unveiled, and these are the most powerful messages you may ever invoke:
* Proclamation over Your Children and Grandchildren
* Proclamation over Your Wife
* Proclamation over Your Business
* Proclamation for Health and Healing
* Proclamation in a Time of Testing and Trial
* Proclamation for Emotional Stability
* Proclamation for the Favor of God
* Proclamation for Divine Prosperity
Hagee declares, "When God Almighty, King of the universe, places His blessing upon you, no person on Earth can take it from you, and no power in the universe can eliminate it from your life!"
You, and probably everyone you know, may feel as if the paths of your lives have come to a crossroads. One of the signposts looming ahead is The Power of the Prophetic Blessing: An Astonishing Revelation for a New Generation. I recommend using this book as a gift that can impact your family, your career, and every other aspect of your life--producing supernatural results beyond your dreams.
