Review: The Power of the Prophetic Blessing by John Hagee


About the Book:
 Humans have forever been searching for a guarantee of the good life-from Ponce de Leon's quest for the proverbial fountain of youth to our twenty-first century search for a mystical Shrangri-La. But all to no avail!
 That's because the supernatural something we seek is not a magical place or an enchanted kiss that transforms the ugly frog into Prince Charming. The only supernatural ingredient that produces the good life became a reality thousands of years before Jesus of Nazareth was born in Bethlehem's manger. That supernatural something was introduced in the book of Genesis by God Almighty as He spoke and released the power of the Prophetic Blessing over the lives of Adam and Eve.
 The power and permanence of the Prophetic Blessing has been clearly charted over the centuries in Scripture. The Jewish people have obeyed the principles and long received the blessing; however, its potential has been overlooked by most Christians for over 2,000 years.
 This transforming supernatural blessing, when spoken by spiritual authority, has the power to sculpt your future! And as you'll discover from Pastor Hagee  in this incredibly encouraging book, the words of this blessing carry the power to revolutionize your life-and the lives of your children and grandchildren-for today,tomorrow, and forever, so that you may all experience spiritual, physical, emotional, and relational prosperity.

My Review:
 Pastor John Hagee is someone that my family and I watch regularly. We love him as well as his family. We are continually blessed by Pastor Hagee's teachings and we learn a lot from him. I loved the book first and foremost because he goes into detail about the Prophetic Blessing from the very first time it came into existence. Reading his book makes you feel like you are listening to him speak. It is worded in such a way that I could hear him speaking it, which was wonderful. Little did I realize that the Prophetic Blessing started with Adam and Eve and continued on down the line through Abraham as well. The Pastor goes back in time and shows you how this blessing has played out over Israel over the years. Sometimes it really makes me laugh at the irony that when Israel is continually protected by the Lord's favor that people are just amazed. It is written about in scripture that these things would come to pass is it not?
 The Pastor goes on to tell us how to release and receive the blessing. Who wouldn't want this blessing passed on to our children and grandchildren? I have always believed that our words carry a lot of weight. And I try to avoid the best that I can to say things in a rude and crude manner especially to my babies. Sort of the say it so shall it be mentality. I never want to put in their heads that they are lazy or rude or will be a failure because I feel like that will define their destiny and that is something I do not want for my children. The Pastor talks about our jobs as parents to pour blessings out over our children to love them, to correct them to bless them. I pray the blood of Jesus over my children daily and I told the Lord that I want him to lead them and have dominion over their lives. It is a terrible world out there we need to protect our babies and this is the best way to do that. Who but the Lord to keep them safe?
