There is a prophetic voice emerging out of mainline Christianity today and Chuck Pierce is one of those Prophets. He captures, in one volumn, the heart of God and what Christ is doing in the hearts of this generation in preparation for His soon return.
Chuck Pierce opens a window into the Spiritual realm easily understood by anyone. He speaks of intercessory warfare and explains God's strategy in tearing down strongholds of the enemy.
He talks about and explains the coming Apostolic Church Government and the raising up of Prophets who will and are admonishing us to prepare our hearts before God.
Chuck Pierce has defined in depth what God means in His Commandment to 'Love God first with your whole heart and soul, and your NEIGHBOR as yourself.' Jesus Christ longs to share the fire of His love with us. Embrasing Him intimately is key to our growing up in Him.
Chuck Pierce shows us the way. One small paragraph sums up the whole of his prophetic message here:
"As we learn to operate in our gifts, the Body of Christ will function as it was meant to. No demonic force, including lawlessness, will be able to stand against a fully functioning Body of Christ. Operating properly in the gifts will lead us back to love (1 Cor. 13:1010), where we can work together according to the heart of God." (Page 203-204).
Now perhaps, as dreams are the means which many prophet's receive from the Lord, it seems to me, unless one is the John the apostle, relating all the details of the dream is a little bit superfluous for most folks. I get that God talks in dreams at times, and to His prophets in dreams at times. However, re-telling all the dream details doesn't really excite me. Just get to the point, if possible, of what is thought to be the interpretation, and then get to the point of what the application is to your readers lives. If those points were made in this book, I have long since forgotten them from when I first read this book and found the endless detail of the dreams too much information for me to digest and then sift through what may have been the really important stuff in there.
I think it says somewhere in the bible, let someone tell their dreams, but let him who has the Word of God speak as well. The body needs clear direction, clear vision from above. To whatever extent a dream is blurring, and unclear, it fails to serve it's purpose, if it's doesn't get translated into a Word which can be acted upon in faith. If anything, the prophets need to give clear Words, or go into their closets until what is unclear becomes explained.
I cannot recommend this book.
The cry of Chuck Pierce book, The Future War of the Church is for the Church to awake! While I am a quick reader, I was still surprised last night I read this 300 page book in full. I could not put it down because in it is an urgent message for members of the body of Christ, particularly those who are still finding God asking them to align and not abandon the local church - even if the local church has abandoned them. Originally written in 2001 prior to 9/11 (and revised/updated/re-released in 2007) the prophetic words are rich with punctuation now of how the Spirit of God is supplying the ministry and message given to Chuck Pierce and Rebecca Wagner Sytsema.
We, the Church, the Body of Christ, must not run and hide, nor fearfully reject the non-traditionalism move of the Holy Spirit. That which we don't understand, can still be quite grounded in the Word of God. The Church NEEDS its gifted apostles and prophets just as much as it needs its pastors, teachers and evangelists! Who is man, apart of the Spirit, to determine what is of God and what is not? Is not that the office of the Holy Spirit to confirm or deny a moving of God? Too long has the members of Christ who are gifted in Apostolic and Prophetic ministries been sidelined, removed, stripped of authority, and denied access to the local church.
What are We afraid of - that the Spirit of God might take control of equipping His people for the work of the ministry? Is it that leaders in churches do not want to see God's power distributed freely as He chooses, in the manner He decides, in the timing He ordains, in the way He designs, through the vessels He deems? Is the controlling spirit so strong in the halls and office of pastoral staff?Read more ›
