Imagine you are in a place of deep worship, lost in the sweet communion of fellowship with the Lord when suddenly the atmosphere changes and the thick cloud of a heavy presence tangibly saturates the space you occupy. Speech is gone and your body feels almost paralyzed with the weight of His presence pressing you to the floor. You can only speak on the inside because your tongue is too heavy to move. Unable to move or speak physically, you carefully and reverently whisper in your spirit, “God, what is this happening to me!” The response is crystal clear and precise, almost like a loud whisper, “You have asked for my glory!”
The pursuit of intimacy with God requires a focus that incorporates the whole man: spirit, soul and body. When one commits to knowing Him in a deep intimate way, He will show up, sometimes in unexpected ways and circumstances. One will either take flight or stand and fight against the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. God is to be feared and He is bigger than who we think He is and more powerful than we can imagine. This book reveals the great God we serve through personal encounters experienced. To know Him, to love Him and to experience the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings should be the primary goal of every believer. May this book stir up in your heart a hunger and a thirst to walk in the fear and knowledge of the Lord, pursuing holiness and obedience before God so you will be propelled to do exploits in His name and experience His true nature.
