Bestselling author and pastor John Hagees new Bible prophecy book, The Power of the Prophetic Blessing, offers an exciting message of encouragement and blessing for today and for generations to come.
He says, "You have the ability, through the power of the blessing, to revolutionize your life. Every blessing recorded in Scripture is available to you for the asking. These blessings have the power to resurrect your dead marriage, bring supernatural joy, and provide you peace of mind."
For Gods people, prophecy is a word of hope, deliverance, bounty, and richness for their life and family. When God blesses man, it is to bestow good health, abundant success, and prosperity, both materially and spiritually. Hagee shows how this powerful prophetic message of blessing flows throughout the Bible and can be used today to create an abundant and prosperous life. The Power of the Prophetic Blessing demonstrates your God-given power to prosper in challenging times. You were born to be blessed!

samcivyEugene, ORAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Way to Pray for Your Family and YourselfAugust 30, 2012samcivyEugene, ORAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In this book John Hagee writes about the power of the spoken word, and especially the words of God. This author believes huge blessings are available from the prayers found in the scriptures that are really prophecies.
Examples of these prayer-prophecies are God's words to Adam and Eve and Jacob's deathbed words to Isaac's twelve sons. Hagee shows how historically each of Jacobs spoken prophecy-prayers came true.
In the New Testament, Hagee shows how the verses called the Beatitudes are really prophetic prayers we can pray for our families. And our spiritual authorities can pray these prayers for us.
These prayers can dramatically change our lives in many areas. Hagee explains the in-depth meanings of each prophecy-prayer and how these apply to each of us. However, for the prophecy-prayers to be effective they must be `received' and acted upon. And I do wonder somewhat about Hagee's thesis--is he maybe stretching the scriptures a bit?
The Power of the Prophetic Blessing is a well-written, easy-to-read volume that can encourage readers, especially younger people and young parents.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5your words can control your futureAugust 27, 2012bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1John Hagee believes in the power of words. He believes in the power of blessing. He writes, "You have the ability, through the power of blessing, to revolutionize your life and control your future." (18)
In this book, he explores the Prophetic Blessing. "The Prophetic Blessing is a spoken declaration by a spiritual authority over the life of an individual. The words of the blessing carry the power to control and direct the life of the person over whom they have spoken." (94)
He first covers the Priestly Blessing of Numbers 6:22-27, notes that its content cannot be changed, and looks at the three promises it includes.
He distinguishes the Priestly Blessing from the Prophetic Blessing. The Priestly Blessing is God's declaration. "The Prophetic Blessing is the spoken declaration by God's spiritual authority concerning the life of an individual." (26) The Prophetic Blessing is unique to each individual.
He reviews all the blessings of the Bible, such as that in Genesis, to Abraham, Jacob prophesying over his sons, and Jesus' prophetic blessings (the Beatitudes). He covers the six scriptural requirements for releasing and receiving a prophetic blessing.
While I appreciate a book on the power of spoken words, I think Hagee goes a bit far sometimes. As I noted in the first quote above, Hagee says I have the ability, through the power of blessing, to control my future. Where does that leave a sovereign God? I would rather submit myself to Him and let Him control my future.
Hagee paints a dire picture if I don't speak the Prophetic Blessing. "If you refuse to proclaim God's Word over your life and the lives of your loved ones through the Prophetic Blessing, you cut yourself off from your High Priest in heaven." (214) Really!
And it seems Hagee has included some sloppy, at best, or deceptive, at worst, review of Abraham's (Abram's) life. He writes that Abraham "obediently left Ur, his family..." (54) The Bible scholars I've read say that Abraham taking his nephew lot with him was an act of disobedience to God's command to leave his family behind. Hagee also writes that God told Abraham to leave Canaan and go to Egypt. Hagee would have us believe that Abraham giving over Sarah (Sarai) to the Pharaoh was an act of faith in God's deliverance. (56) I just reread Genesis 12 and just don't see it.
Hagee speculates, "As [Abram] sojourned in Egypt, his thoughts were on the Prophetic Blessing God had spoken over him." (55) Really! Hagee knows what Abram was thinking about?
There are some problems, too, with Hagee's interpretation of Joseph as a type. For example, based on the fact that Joseph that Joseph revealed himself to his brothers the third time they came to Egypt, he says Jesus will reveal himself to the Jewish people the third time they enter the Land. (152-3) This was May 15, 1948, nearly 65 years ago. So, are the Jews still waiting for this revelation?
Also based on the Joseph type, Hagee says Christians will be raptured before Christ returns just as Joseph asked the Egyptians to leave the room before he revealed himself to his brothers. (153-4) Does Hagee really mean to have the (faithful) church he believes will be raptured likened to the Egyptians, earthly and ungodly people in typology? I think he has stretched the idea of typology beyond credibility.
Lastly, Hagee spends a great deal of time writing about Israel. I know he has strong feelings about Israel, but he spends way too much time on the nation in a book that is supposed to be about speaking blessings on your children, your wife, etc.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Clear and scripturalAugust 15, 2012Jill JonesOpelika, ALAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5John Hagee is well-known for his support for Israel and the Jewish people. As founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), he is educating thousands about the importance of supporting and praying for the nation of Israel.
In "The Power of the Prophetic Blessing," Hagee shows through Scripture how we can show our support for Israel and the benefits and rewards we reap for doing so. He also shows the repercussions for failing to be a blessing to His people.
Looking at Israel through the eyes of Scripture opens our eyes to the importance God placed upon their role in His kingdom. Even though Christians are grafted on to the vine through Christ's sacrifice, God did not forget about the Jewish people. They are still the people of the promise and favor is shown to those who show favor to them.
We have often heard that we are to bless Israel. Hagee tells us, using Scripture and straightforward talk, why. From the blessings of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the blessings of Jesus in the Beatitudes, we find remarkable reasons to be the blessings God intends us to be. Hagee's passion for Israel and love of Scripture are beacons of light to a world becoming less sensitized to the people of Israel.
