About the Author
Jonathan Brenneman was born in Rochester, New York and raised in Pennsylvania. Although a very troubled child he was at the same time very religious. He read the Bible from cover to cover when he was seven years old, all the while questioning and wondering about the existence of God.
When Jonathan was nine years old, he woke up one morning with bad back pain. His mother prayed for him, and to his surprise, he felt something like a hot ball of energy rolling up and down inside his back, and the pain melted away. It was shocking to say the least, but it convinced him God did exist! He later told his friends, “I know that God is real. I felt his hand on my back.”
In spite of this experience, Jonathan still had no peace. He prayed the “sinner’s prayer” but with no change until two years later when he had a “born again” experience. It felt like heaven opened and unexplainable joy and peace descended upon him! He was different, and knew it! The things he had felt so guilty about that he tried unsuccessfully to change, were simply gone.
After this time, Jonathan dedicated his life to the Lord as a missionary, going on his first mission trip at age fourteen. As a teenager and young adult he continued to travel and learn languages. Then, in a time of desperation when he was twenty years old, Jonathan went to a Christian conference where the Lord touched and encouraged him. It was the start of a supernatural lifestyle and growing in spiritual gifts, during which time many amazing miracles and healings began to happen.
Jonathan worked in construction, but in between jobs he began to visit churches in the United States and Canada as well as in Latin America and Eastern Europe. Jonathan has encouraged the believers, shared testimonies, and spoken with unbelievers and prayed for them. He’s also worked with children and seniors. Jonathan believes it’s a wonderful and tremendous privilege to be able to serve the people for whom Jesus gave his life.
Jonathan is now a missionary in Rio de Janeiro Brazil with his wife Elizabeth, and daughter Rebekah. He loves people, enjoys being with them, and rejoices at seeing what the Holy Spirit does in their lives. He likes to minister in the role of teaching, laying hands on the sick, visiting the elderly, and working with children—always loving them so they in turn will learn to love others with the love of God.

I could rave on about how good this book is, if you check the "Look Inside" feature and read what the endorsements say and read the foreword by Cheryl Fritz of Inside Out Training and Equipping school, says, you will get a good idea of what to expect. What i have to say is this. You owe it to yourself to spend $8.00 to really get the meaning behind the thorn in the flesh mystery. Also the title of the book also has a very exciting meaning and you'll be blessed by that.
I am 33% percent though the book, and I already have my monies worth!
Jonathan writes with an easy to understand conversational style and all his verses so far have been needed and in context and he isn't scripture stuffing the book to make himself seem more spiritual as some authors do. He writes has written a compelling book so far as I have read.

And what about that passage in 1 Corinthians 12 where it says that the Spirit distributes gifts as He wills? Doesn't that mean I can't have all the gifts? That might not be so! Once again a great mystery that hinders a lot of people is uncovered. It is so good to have someone expose the lies of the enemy
And what about lying signs and wonders? Don't we need too be careful about signs and wonders. What about things that are happening that are not int he Bible. What should we do with them? Jonathan will put your mind at ease or if nothing else give you plenty to chew on in his book.
This is a book written by a simple guy, who has been there and done that and wants to share with you that, you too can do mighty things!
I commend it to you!

Jonathan made the Biblical case for why we SHOULD PURSUE and EXPECT to do the VERY SAME things JESUS did AND GREATER! The traditions of man /wrong teachings (which I didn't even KNOW I had!) were EXPOSED-the ones that BLOCKED the POWER of God in my life! Permission was granted for me to DESIRE and GO AFTER the MIRACULOUS! No longer do I feel Guilty for WANTING POWER and needing answers on how to go about seeing the Kingdom manifest in my life. No longer do I feel I must settle and only see people get saved, but then watch them stay sick and oppressed.
In the book, Johnathan uses the Bible to explain why we are instructed to pursue LOVE AND POWER-defining LOVE and expanding on what our traditional ideas of LOVE are. He points out the false teaching which many believe that teaches going after the miraculous will lead to pride and deception- (that is what I was wrongfully taught!) He shows how the Bible tells us we are to EARNESTLY desire the gifts-ALL of them. He shows how we must CULTIVATE the gifts and GROW in them and explains POWER is always a means of serving others-not for self-glorification! Jonathan goes on to say LOVE (JESUS) would want the BEST for everyone-sickness, oppression, mental distress, etc. those are NOT characteristics of LOVE! So, of COURSE we MUST have POWER to deal with ANY kind of problem a person has-body, soul, mind, and/or spirit wise!
Thank you, Johnathan, for showing us walking in HIS anointing is POSSIBLE for EVERY BELIEVER. Thank you for raising the bar and showing us how we SHOULD be experiencing the miraculous DAILY! The feeling I got from this book is Jesus is EXCITED AND JUST WAITING for us to HURRY UP AND LEARN what we ALREADY have! This book demonstrates how we can UNWRAP the GIFT and start WALKING in JESUS' anointing! He reminds us it is by GRACE- (thank goodness!) NOT by jumping through those proverbial hoops to try to WORK UP something!
Johnathan's writing comes across as authentic with a pure motivation of LOVE-longing to see the captives set free-no power trips here! And might I add that he has seen God use him to do some miraculous healings? Oh, yes, he has! Jonathan's only desire is to see believers equipped to do the same! I will surely be reading this book over and over-it was just that meaty.
God, bless you, Johnathan. I look forward to reading more of your writings and just purchased two more of your books today!
