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.

This is now the third book of Jonathan’s I have read and I have to say he just keeps getting better and better.
This book addresses the fact that we as Christians know that will have been saved and will go to heaven when we die but miss out on the present aspect of salvation so that we experience much less than what is available. And because we experience so much less we start to think that this is normal.
Jonathan carefully expounds the truth of all that is available to us as Christians now. He opened my eyes to long-held beliefs that were hindering me from taking possession of all that is available (and I, like the Israelites settled for far too little).
Jonathan also systematically outlines how we can remove the veils (such as unforgiveness) that hinder us from approaching Heaven and demonstrates this through practical real life examples.
Like his other books I love his vulnerability: he is honest about his failures as well as his successes in his journey to growing into the fullness of Christ and experiencing more of heaven on earth now. This is so encouraging as it made me believe that it isn’t just for “super Christians” but for me as well.
I found this book so encouraging as I learnt more of my identity in Christ and was so uplifted by his stories. So much so that reading it lifted me out of a depression I had sunk into due to discouragement.
