Johns new books are out!

Experiencing the Reality of the Sevenfold Spirit of God


by John Crowder
Sons of Thunder Publications

And out of the throne go forth lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and seven lamps of fire, burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God - Rev. 4:5

John's long-awaited Seven Spirits Burning is an extensive, Biblical plunge into the nature and operation of the sevenfold Spirit of God. This book unpackages a deep theological and Christocentric understanding of the seven Spirits. John has taught for years on the seven Spirits, but not until now has he released this detailed compilation of his study and experience. This book could possibly be the magnum opus of anything written to date on the Spirit's sevenfold nature. It is a must read for anyone interested in walking in the anointing.

 Enjoying John's new books!

Stuff they never told you about the finished work of the cross



by John Crowder
Sons of Thunder Publications

The gospel is a mystical message, based on an instant and effortless union with God achieved at Christ's cross.

When you think of the cross, do you think of fun?

If the answer is "no" then you have not been taught the cross aright.

There is a delicious feast prepared for the believer. Nothing is more satisfying than the revelation of what Christ has conclusively accomplished for you. This book threatens to turn your Christianity upside down. No longer a struggle to please God -- the Truth will plunge you into a celebration of what He has done for you.

With clear revelatory truths on the New Creation and the scandalous joys of the cross, Mystical Union  promises to be one of John’s most revolutionary, lifechanging works. The happy gospel of grace is about uninterrupted union with the Divine. This book lays out our most core beliefs. It promises to wreck your theology and cheer you up with undeniable Biblical truths on the free gift of perfection.

I am thouroghly enjoying my husbands book, loving the writing style and the nugets of wisdom.

Today I am reading from "Mystical Union" and I have to share an exerpt from ch.2:


 The most scholarly minds all agree that a mystical death with Christ purchased union with Him.  But then a theological dishonesty creeps in.  We are next taught that- although the old man is dead - we still have a daily process of putting that old self to death.  I die daily is a common motto!   

They call it a paradox.  Two opposites that are held in tension.  They say your fleshly nature is dead, yet it is till in need of crucifixion.  Paradox indeed!  I call this a lack of revelation at best.  Lazy exegesis at worst.  The scriptures never contradict themselves.  The word "paradox" sounds fun, but there are far fewer of them in scripture than you would imagine.  Lobotomy is fun word as well, but I don't want one.  People think, "We haven't figured it out, so it must be an unsolvable puzzle!  A paradox!"  There are no unsolvable puzzles>  Every mystery has been plainly published on the tree.

The word people use for this supposed process of killing the old self is "sanctification."  It is widely believed that sanctification is a lifelong, extended journey of becoming holy.  A process of removing sin - progressively having one's soul purged over an entire lifetime.

The Greek verb "to sanctify" does not mean to "purge and purify over a period of time."  The word hagiazo simply means to "set apart" or to "make separate for God."  The moment you were saved, you were set apart for God.  Sanctification is not a process.  It is a Person.  The Bible tells me so!

And because of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Cor.  1:30, ESV)
