Jesus was given instruction by the Holy Ghost to go to the other side of the Sea of Galilee. It is not revealed in the Bible whether He knew what His assignment was once He arrived—He simply knew that He was to go. As a violent storm came, the disciples feared for their lives while Jesus slept. When Jesus cleared the storm, He told His disciples that they were going to the other side no matter what happened—the disciples did not share His faith as strongly.
It’s essential to believe God’s Word and walk by faith, not by sight. Jesus said that the Bible and the works that He did, and the greater works we shall do, teach us how to walk in power as He did. Going to the Other Side by Samuel Taylor addresses how we can walk in spiritual power as Jesus intended. Understanding the power that we have when we allow faith and patience to work together, and discovering the power of the spoken word, compassion, Jesus’s death, communion, and baptism in the Holy Ghost are essential for believers to walk in spiritual power as God intended.
Through this book, an unbeliever can come to the Lord and a believer can walk in the power of the Word. Taylor’s wish is to help those who read his book to better understand these powerful, spiritual principles and inspire them to walk in power, making a difference in their lives and the lives of others.
