Waking the Dead has two distinct parts. The first is to open our eyes to how dirty Satan is playing in this war between him and God. We, unfortunately, are the ones who are stuck in the middle because he knows if he gets to us, he hits God right in the heart.
Now, that may sound like a really big downer, but I highly recommend you keep reading. The second part is all about the amazing tools we have available to us that are directly from God. Our loving Father knew that the war was going to wear us down and make us want to declare defeat, but John’s response is a firm “No!” He then goes on to help us realize the gifts we have been given and, more importantly, how to use them.
I remember when iPads were the new, big thing. There was a commercial that showed a son giving his older dad one. It was such a wonderful gift, after all, it cost a small fortune. The son quickly saw though that his dad didn’t really appreciate the gift – simply because he didn’t know how to use it. (I couldn’t find the American commercial, but you’ll get it, even if you don’t speak German).
It’s the same with us. We have remarkable, powerful tools that many of us don’t even realize. These tools are more valuable than we could ever appreciate, but do we know how to use them? Allow John to walk you through the “owner’s manual” step-by-step to see what value these gifts hold for you.
