Some of the last words Messiah spoke to His disciples were of something He called the promise of the Father. He declared that they would receive power when the promise came upon them. He commanded them not to leave the city until they received it and He indicated that only then would they be his witnesses in Yerushalayim, Judea, Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. What is the promise of the Father? Is it for today and is it for you? In this book, Jim Brown tells how he went from resentful skeptic to enthusiastic recipient of the promise of the Father. He then demonstrates how his experience lines up with Scripture.
You will want to have your Bible open as you read this book so that your decision as to whether the promise of the Father is for you is based on Scripture, and not influenced by the opinions or doctrines of men. You may need to put aside things you have been taught and set your heart on discovering what Scripture says about the promise of the Father. You also may need to put aside any bad experiences you may have had with Charismatics or Pentecostals. If the promise of the Father is meant for you, then you need to receive it. This book addresses how to do that and what you should expect to happen when you do.
