Overview


When people you trust betray you
Betrayal by enemies is expected, but when it comes from family and friends, it can be devastating. Perry Stone uses the intriguing example of a Judas goat to show you how to deal with the betrayal in a biblical way and find the strength to forgive.
 
A Judas goat is an actual goat that is raised with the sheep in the field—eating with them, sleeping with them, and generally gaining their trust. When the time comes to lead the sheep into the slaughterhouse, the sheep will follow the Judas goat into specially marked pens, the back of trucks, and in some instances into the slaughterhouse itself. The Judas Goat makes a strong correlation between this goat and the people in your lives who are operating with ulterior motives, helping you understand:
 
·          The betraying strategy of potential Judas goats in your life
·          The three levels of relationships and whom you should let into your inner circle of trust
·          How to address false rumors and lies from those close to you
·          The critical danger of unforgiveness, and more!

    With its vivid, embossed cover depicting the close up of two wea

    With its vivid, embossed cover depicting the close up of two weathered, rough horns, The Judas Goat is a newly published by Perry Stone. This timely book focuses on betrayal. This book delivers the truths of the gospel from the perspective of the problem of betrayal- something that many, if not all readers, are familiar with in at least one area of life. As mentioned, betrayal by enemies is to be expected, but to be betrayed by those who are close- is extremely painful, and can sap the strength of anyone- emotionally, physically and spiritually. Whether you have been betrayed by an enemy, coworker, relative or even your church- this book is for you.

    This inclusive book is well rounded, starting with a spiritual and historical background in the bible of betrayal. The weary, apathetic, angry reader will find spiritual motivation and nourishment from Stone's words. Written for a modern generation, the author takes a subject close to home for many readers, and addresses it - empowering even the most angry and apathetic of readers into action and faith.

    Not many readers- secular and religious alike, may realize that the bible has an abundance of wisdom, stories and anecdotes about betrayal. Most of the biblical heroes have been victims of betrayal as well and scripture has much to teach everyone about the facts of betrayal and how to use it. Stone gleans every bit of biblical truth as well as sociological information about the concept of betrayal for the reader to get a better grip on understanding betrayal and facing it in day to day life. There are important lessons- difficult, yet empowering at the same time- about forgiveness and sin. This is not a book that is simply written to tickle the ears of its listeners to use Paul's New Testament terminology. This book will give the reader insight into betrayal and the strategy of the Judas Goat- and how betrayal works. The author educates the reader into the subtle strategies of Satan that are subtle and destructive. Yet this book doesn't stop there as it also covers the topics of confession and restoration. This is not a self help book but rather a life changing book. It is an entire curriculum and life changing book combined into one volume.

    I learned & grow from this book

    This book gave me more understanding about how people live, and how much we need the Word of God. Christ in us is the hope of glory, and apart from Him, we are nothing.

    Perry Stone in his new book, ¿The Judas Goat¿ published by Chari

    Perry Stone in his new book, “The Judas Goat” published by Charisma House helps us How to Deal With False Friendships, Betrayals, and the Temptation Not to Forgive.




    From the back cover:  When people you trust betray you




    Betrayal by enemies is expected, but when it comes from family and friends, it can be devastating. Perry Stone uses the intriguing example of a Judas goat to show you how to deal with the betrayal in a biblical way and find the strength to forgive.




    A Judas goat is an actual goat that is raised with the sheep in the field; eating with them, sleeping with them, and generally gaining their trust. When the time comes to lead the sheep into the slaughterhouse, the sheep will follow the Judas goat into specially marked pens, the back of trucks, and in some instances into the slaughterhouse itself. The Judas Goat makes a strong correlation between this goat and the people in your lives who are operating with ulterior motives, helping you understand:




    ·          The betraying strategy of potential Judas goats in your life
    ·          The three levels of relationships and whom you should let into your inner circle of trust
    ·          How to address false rumors and lies from those close to you
    ·          The critical danger of unforgiveness, and more!




    To have someone betray you is one of the most hurtful acts that can happen to you.  Someone you trusted, someone you thought was your friend suddenly, without warning, turned on you and their act leaves you open and exposed.  At some point, to some degree, it is probably going to happen to everyone.  King David said it happened to him by someone who ate at his table, meaning one of his best friends.  It happened to Jesus in both Judas and with Peter.  Perry Stone has given us a way to heal if betrayal has already happened to us and a way to deal with it if it has not happened yet.  I believe that this book should be read slowly and carefully and then put on a shelf where it can be referred to easily if need be.  It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they, too, can heal and be prepared for any betrayal that may happen to them.
