I had no God previously since ; and I was introduced to Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism that came in after Gautama Siddhartha Buddhism which came down from the Primal Buddhism which there are no ancient writings just artifacts.
My friend and I had trained during electronics in the making of pc boards, she was Japanese and we became friends and she introduced me to the Lotus Sutra. There is no god in Nichiren Shoshu. They held I had no God previously since ; and I was introduced to Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism that came in after Gautama Siddhartha Buddhism which came down from the Primal Buddhism which there are no ancient writings just artifacts.
They held to a monistic view believing that there is no separation between Creator and Creature but being protected by Buddhist, Hindu, and Shinto gods regarded as spiritual forces. The main chanting of mantra was enlightenment, propsperty, and healing from chanting nam-myoho-renge-kyo expressing devotion to the law of karma.
Fulfilling worldly desires that brings enlightenment, which can be achieved in a life time. This was founded by Soka Gakkai in by Tsunesaburo Makiguchi Not the same as Ancient Buddha which they only found artifacts of a Buddha sitting yoga style. Well the Lord had other plans for me my neighbors were Christians and they had a friend that played guitar it was the guitar that attracted me to church.
I thought that is what they meant by church. So I attended and received salvation and lost my roommate. Was blessed with a good job, and gained prosperity in Spiritual things of God. I had spiritual encounters a few times before the Japanese roommates, but did not know how to seek God properly.
I recommend this to all new born again Christians that need to develop a strong love and relationship with God. The author and I have many things in common except I do not have the Church religion background. I stepped out in faith, and I have the same fundamental experiences when face to face with God in my life with God It is a must read book and their is scriptures and it is only for those who want to become wealthy spiritually instead of worldly wise.
May 06, Jeremy Manuel rated it liked it Shelves: christianity. Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. Despite this, my thoughts on the book are mixed. The point of the book is to find ways to experience God. In particular to see where God is working, and to be involved in His work.
Overall, I thought that the principles that Blackaby presents for doing this are pretty solid. Nothing comes to mind that made me really wary when it came down to his basic principles of how to experience God.
There were two things that I did dislike about the b Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. There were two things that I did dislike about the book though. First, it suffers from appearing to be a bit prideful. I don't know Henry Blackaby so I have no idea what he is really like, but the writing style of the book just smacks of arrogance sometimes. Even in trying to be humble at one point he says that God had to look high and low for someone as ordinary as me.
Not to mention constantly referring to some conference where he tells how somebody's life was changed by reading his book.
Not that it isn't good to have testimonials, but the frequency of such examples, with few examples that don't involve the book or Blackaby himself, started to rub me the wrong way. The second problem I had with the book, was that it gave a lopsided view of how God may speak to you. Many of Blackaby's examples are amazing. It is about how he and his wife were called to Canada to pastor a small church and all the amazing things that were done there or how people were called to serve God in amazing circumstances and amazing outcomes.
These examples naturally led me to ask is this how God speaks to everybody? What about God speaking to people in the everyday, in our communities, in things that are not "full-time ministry. We are not all meant to be Paul or Moses at least in terms of our accomplishments. So while I thought it was solid on its principles, the tone of the book and the examples it gave slightly diminished its value in my eyes.

When I read this the first time I was so excited to find someone who believed exactly as I did about the way God speaks to His people. Of course, Blackaby provides a tremendous amount of scriptural support for his position, so that was also very helpful. His view remains unusual, though no longer unique.
He will lead you provided you are doing the When I read this the first time I was so excited to find someone who believed exactly as I did about the way God speaks to His people. He will lead you provided you are doing the other things in the book Where others say, "the Lord helps those who help themselves," Blackaby answers that God often does nothing until His people can "cease striving" and rest in Him. I have never read a better explanation for the way God speaks, including how to know His voice, and the various media through which he speaks whether scripture, other Christians, circumstances, or the Church.
This is an excellent book and I cannot recommend it too highly. I'm glad they made a 'book' version. The workbook is probably better because it is so engaging. But so many people will not buy or really use a workbook, so the book version will reach a lot of people. Apr 22, Shane Gliser rated it it was ok.
A concerned Christian's review: Nobel intentions but with more theological holes than you can shake a cross at. For example the very thesis verse is taken out of context and thus flawed.
This is not to say that it is without value. It is good at getting people into the word and getting people used to the i A concerned Christian's review: Nobel intentions but with more theological holes than you can shake a cross at.
It is good at getting people into the word and getting people used to the idea of seeking God on individual level. In that regard, it's great. However, due to the flawed theological premise, it could lead to long-term disillusionment, frustration, and unfounded fear and doubt for believers who have been told through the book that if they're not hearing from God that there is something wrong with their Christian walk.
God has shifted me to a place of liberty.
It is a good question to ask, since we as evangelicals believe that God is eminently active in the world and in the lives of His people. There was a time in history when the truth of a God who is at work in the world was looked on as superstitious nonsense. Many were not ashamed to say that indeed there was a God, but if so, he must be one who simply set the laws of nature in place, wound the world up, and turned it loose to unwind itself without His guidance. I, for one, am glad that we do not serve a God like that!
There were no references to his academic letters, theological acumen, skill at biblical living, or personal holiness. The implication for the audience was clear: He listens to God; they should listen to him. It is hard to think of anything that has captured the imagination of Christians recently as aggressively as the idea of hearing the voice of God. The notion is, to many, so obviously Christian, so undoubtedly Biblical, that its truth is beyond question. To challenge it is akin to spiritual treason. Without it genuine closeness to the Savior is not possible. It is not surprising, then, that a book promising to lead the believer into such intimacy would be a best-seller.
