Randy Clark: Supernatural Missions

Rolland Baker speaks about the tremendous value of the gift of prophecy, especially as it relates to the power to impact missions.

I found the accounts in Supernatural Missions about the tremendous growth of ministries that operated by the power of the Holy Spirit to be very powerful. In some cases “before” and “after” scenarios were presented; the results were staggeringly different. I also appreciated that these reports came from different parts of the world. Rolland Baker’s chapter on the power of the gift of prophecy in the missionary task was excellent. In Bob Ekblad’s chapter, the section on facilitating transformation through correcting faulty views of God (page 270-280) was interesting. And Don Kantel’s four accounts of the multiplication of food at Iris Ministries demonstrate that Jesus is still doing this kind of miracle in our day.

God is still doing today by His Spirit what He did in the days of the first century believers. Armed with this knowledge may we have the faith and boldness to pursue ministering with His power.

This book can both inform and inspire the reader (hopefully both). Depending on your experiences and interests you may gravitate toward certain chapters more than others. The truth that this book makes clear is that God is still doing today by His Spirit what He did in the days of the first century believers. Armed with this knowledge may we have the faith and boldness to pursue ministering with His power. By God’s grace may we go from information to inspiration to implementation so that He may accompany our obedience with accompanying signs. This book may help move us in that direction.
