Some of what
Writes Will Shock you!
Healing the Earth . . .
A Time for Change
From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
You are about to read one of the most revolutionary books for Christianity today. Whether you download this immediately in e-book form (if you're like me, you can't wait to get the information in such shockingly new books)—or if you order a book or books for gifts for all your friends this Christmas season—you are about to embark on a journey of brand new discovery of the THINGS OF THE KINGDOM over which mankind has been given dominion. That includes not only God's people, but the entire animal kingdom—both on the earth and in the sea. And it includes the birds of the air, of course!
Yes, it includes your dear pets and the wildest of the wildest man-eating beasts of the earth.
And that which mankind has dominion over even includes the weather! But you're also about to learn in John Sandford's book, "Healing The Earth," that there are times you should not even try to avert the course of nature—even if you have the power to stop a destructive storm. You need to read this book to find out why.
Now, even if you don't read the whole book, you probably don't want to miss Chapter Four. It's called, "Animals can think!" This is going to be either quite controversial to you, or...more likely, you're going to find yourself saying, "Well, of course they can…now that you put it that way!"
Here are just a very few amazing Excerpts from this book, "Healing the Earth!"
From Chapter Four: "Animals Can Think"
"...Of course, it is always easiest to pray about events in an animal's life that you or someone you know has witnessed first-hand. But one thing that can make praying over animals more difficult is that where there are no witnesses, they can't tell you their hurtful memories. Don't think that you always have to know the [animal's] memory in order to bring healing."
From a TRUE STORY about a Wild Wolf that Stole Food and then was repentant:
...The wolf did not presume to come close. In deep shame, she would not lift her eyes from the ground. It was plain that she was imploring some act of pardon. The hermit had pity on her confusion. He ordered her to come near, and with a caressing hand stroked her head. Then he refreshed the culprit with a double ration of bread. The wolf received her pardon. She put her grief aside and renewed her habitual visits.
...They knew the constriction [of the bull] would eventually castrate him. But he was thrashing so violently that all [of us] were being kicked and tossed about.I stepped in to help hold him down, and the Lord brought the following words to me, spoken as if from the bull's perspective: "I didn't think you would do that to me."
Quietly, I apologized and said [to the bull], "I'm sorry. I knew they would succeed in doing it anyway, so I thought if I helped, it might not be so hurtful to you." Was that only imagination? I did not invite that; I was shocked when it happened, and immediately sought the Lord about what my response should be.
I wonder how often God would like to let us know what animals are needing and feeling, if only we had ears to hear Him. I long for the day when the Lord shall have so healed us that this can happen. Many friends have told me how they are sure that the Lord has relayed to them what their animals needed to say—often a quick word of warning of some danger the animal could see but they couldn't.
I came home one afternoon and found our collie dog, Julie, waiting for me. As I stepped out of the car, she looked at me intently. Our eyes locked, and though Julie did not audibly speak the actual words, it was if she said, "I'm sick. Take me to the doctor." It was so clear that I wondered if I was hearing it with my physical ears!...If what I "heard" was audible, there is clear precedent in the story of Balaam’s donkey...But at the moment, there was no time to ponder these questions. If what I heard was not from God, it would not hurt to take her to the vet anyway. But if it was from God, and I did not go, Julie could suffer. Immediately, I opened the car door and
invited her in. I drove her to the veterinary clinic and returned home. A couple of hours later, the veterinarian called us to say, "Her entire womb was filled with pus. We've had to perform a hysterectomy.. If you had brought her an hour later, it would have been too late; she would have died." God had allowed me to know what Julie needed.
Here's what others are saying about the book:
John Paul Jackson:"...Some of what John writes will shock you, some will surprise you, and all of it will make you think more deeply about God and what He intended when He created mankind, the Heavens, and the Earth. In reading Healing the Earth, you will come away with a greater appreciation for what God put mankind here to do. You will discover that our purpose for being here is tied to all of creation in unexpected ways."
James Goll: "As for me, when I read this manuscript, I was amazed, enlightened, expanded, thrilled, and my heart even skipped a beat a time or two. Just think — God wants to heal the land! God wants His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that if we confessed our sins and repented of our wicked ways, God would forgive our sins and 'heal our land.' Is that really a part of God's redemptive plan? Yes, the very earth cries out for healing.
Now you can order John Sandford's new book, "Healing the Earth" in normal soft cover book form or as an E-book, Both are available right now and if you order the ebook you can be reading it just moments from now.
Healing the Earth ... Time for Change introduces a set of Biblical perspectives for interacting with creation as men and women of God. When we turn from our wicked ways, the land is HEALED along with us. John and Mark unfold this neglected truth, urging us to turn from hurtful attitudes towards God's good earth, as well as false ideas that spawn destructive ways of relating to it. We will not see a perfectly restored earth until after Jesus' return, but for now, to whatever extent our lives reflect His glory, the earth may be set free to do likewise.
If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
