Unlock Healing and Breakthrough for Your Life

Jesus didn’t come to earth just to save us from hell. He suffered, died and rose again for complete deliverance and healing. Soul wounds affect each of us and leave broken places in our lives. When we seek inner healing but don’t also close demonic doorways to the enemy, we simply mask the issues and may find ourselves in more bondage than we experienced previously.

A respected minister of deliverance, Kathy DeGraw will show you through biblical insights, real-life examples and practical instruction how you can
· discern and destroy the roots of fear, anger, addictions, rejection and other strongholds that just won’t go away
· use the tools of repentance, forgiveness and robust spiritual warfare prayers and declarations to walk into freedom
· minister deliverance and inner healing to others
· and more

The Holy Spirit wants to open your eyes to the strongholds that have kept you stuck. It’s time to be unshackled and free!

Disclaimer: A few weeks ago I watched American Gospel on Netflix. This has, and continues, to change my faith and is bringing my focus back to the Word and the Gospel. Unfortunately, I signed up to review several books by authors I don’t necessarily agree with any longer. In fairness, I am still trying to read them for gold, but now I am seeing a lot of things I never would have saw before that I no longer agree with or I am questioning. I think it’s only fair that I tell you that and the bias I am coming from.  

My thought:

I appreciated in this book that at the beginning of each chapter there was a quiz where you can reflect on if this is an issue for you. For me, in the past, I have struggled with pride and it was interesting to read that I still have things in this area I need to work on. Things that I normally wouldn’t consider prideful but definitely can be.

Each chapter ends with a lot of action steps, prayers and declarations you can do to “overcome” these shackles.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of prosperity gospel and “new age” type stuff in this book. On page 81 the author states the her disobedience could prevent a mighty act of God. I totally disagree with this. God can still move you just might not get to be part of that if you are disobedient. God is all powerful. He doesn’t need anything to move, but I believe He loves using those that will be obedient.

On page 112 I about wanted to throw the book away. The author says: “Through prayer and a series of events, the Lord affirmed that I could declare out and claim a Dodge Charger.” What?? To be fair, I used to believe this stuff and do it, which only led to me feeling entitled to things. This stuff makes me feel ill now. This is not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus gave his life for me, for you and rose again. I don’t need a Charger, I only need Jesus.

So, I did like the reflecting on things that you might be dealing with but overall this is not a book I would turn to due to the false teachings that I find in here.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com, or favorite your retailer.
