Book Review: The Power of the Prophetic Blessing: An Astonishing Revelation for a New Generation by John Hagee

Pastor John Hagee's newest book is The Power of the Prophetic Blessing: An Astonishing Revelation for a New Generation. The cornerstone of Hagee's new book is that true peace and wealth come not from Donald Trump or the lottery, but from God, and God can bless man, as well as man can bless God. "When God blesses man, it is to bestow good health, abundant success, and prosperity, both materially and spiritually. When man blesses God, it is presented in the forms of thanksgiving, reverence, obedience, praise, and worship. When a man blesses his fellow believer, he recites the Priestly Blessing of Numbers 6:22-27 and then proclaims the Holy Spirit-inspired Prophetic Blessing." Hagee declares, "When God Almighty, King of the universe, places His blessing upon you, no person on Earth can take it from you, and no power in the universe can eliminate it from your life!"

Although my husband watch John Hagee's sermons on television frequently, this is my first time to review one of his books. I am blessed with the opportunity to do so and I was not disappointed. This book is an excellent read. John Hagee writes with a fluid style, each concept flowing clearly and cleanly into the next making The Power of the Prophetic Blessing easy to read. The book is full of well-researched material it is beautifully composed with his theme divided into three sections and eleven chapters. The “Think on This” sections peppered throughout the book highlight the concepts covered in each chapter in a quick, memorable way. Every chapter focuses on something related to how you can bring God's prophetic blessing into your own life and work. Hagee's interpretations are solidly based on traditional Biblical values and he never strays from God’s Word. The invaluable part of this book lies in the personal stories that fit well with his book sections. For example, in the Genesis Blessing chapter, Pastor Hagee details how his son, Matthew was born and how he was called to preach the Gospel.

This book has been a blessing to me and it will touch the lives of my children. It is one thing to be a hearer of the Word, and another to act based on God’s Word. The Power of the Prophetic Blessing is based in Biblical truths and in order for the blessing to transform our lives, we must believe it, receive it, and act on it. I highly recommend The Power of the Prophetic Blessing to anyone desiring to know more about it and how to apply it to life.
