In the New Testament, the government of the local church was given to the elders of that church, not to itinerant prophets, nor to the prophets within that church. Paul wrote, “The elders who direct the affairs of the church are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching (1 Tim. 5:17). There are two groups in the church that continually cause problems for the leadership of the church. One group is the prophetic people. Because they frequently have visions, dreams, and unusual impressions, they may have a tendency to think they know more than the leadership of the church. Some get offended when the leadership doesn’t listen to them. They assume they know better what the Lord wants for the church. The other group that frequently causes difficulty is the intercessors. Intercessors are people whose primary ministry is to pray. They spend long hours in prayer—frequently more than anyone else in the church. Sometimes this makes them feel more spiritual than the leadership, and they resent not having a significant say in the affairs of the church. Both of these groups, the prophets and the intercessors, are required by God to submit to the elders.

All this stated, I don't know much about Dr. Jack Deere's theology other than what I've heard on these two cassettes and 3 CDs I've heard of his, so this review is strictly on the 2 cassettes...and I HIGHLY recommend you get your hands on a cassette player or boom box with a cassette player and GET THESE CASSETTE TAPES!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and God Almighty bless you richly with ALL He has for you and everyone you know.
