Overview


Break free from this subtle destroyer and reclaim a life of passion and purpose.
Pythons have an interesting way of killing their prey. They constrict it until it can no longer breathe, literally suffocating the life out of it. In the spirit realm Satan often works in the same way, slowly slithering his way into our lives, attempting to choke the very life out of us.
 
The python spirit can squeeze the joy out of your worship and prayers. It can pressure you to keep quiet when God wants you to speak up. And it can steal the peace of knowing that you belong to God. But there is a way to defeat him. You don’t have to become his prey.
 
The Spirit of Python helps you understand the strategies of this subtle destroyer, how he works, how to detect him, and how to break his hold from your life. You can learn to:
 
·          Recognize the early warning signs that you are under attack
·          Find the ways you may have unknowingly given him access into your home
·          Bring God’s deliverance and restoration into every area of your life
 
We are in the middle of an unseen spiritual war. God wants to break the coils of the serpent off of your life. He wants to help you breathe again.

The Spirit of Python by Jentezen Franklin prepares the reader for the invisible, spiritual battle with Satan. The concept of the "Spirit of Python" refers to the tactic of the devil to squeeze the life or Holy Spirit, out of each and every believer. In other words, if Satan can not stop you from believing the good news and being born again in the first place, he has an evil "plan B" in which Satan will attempt to squeeze the spirit filled life out of you- in essence making you miserable and ineffective as a Christian. This empowering book has the ability to give even the most apathetic of readers, a renewed faith and energy. What a wonderfully accurate analogy to describe Satan's tactic to that of a Python that slowly squeezes breath and life out of its victim. While there are so many writers that attempt to describe spiritual warfare in a passive academic way, this author presents a new twist in explaining spiritual warfare and literally shows its impact in the reader's life. Spiritually this book is uplifting and eye opening. Practically it addresses common issues effectively. For example, spiritual dryness and the lack of willingness to pray- are also "python" styled tactics of the devil. Simply the sense that we have a million things to do or worry about- with no time to pray- is a tactic of the devil! And Franklin's effective response is genius in its simplicity. Write down everything that occupies your mind, everything causing you to worry or be too busy. Write each and every thing down on a sheet of paper- then when you finish the list, thank Satan for reminding you of these things then move on and pray to God! Its simple, yet effective nonetheless in redirecting one's worries to something more spiritually fruitful. The author provides a lot of insight into circumstances that many readers might never consider, such as the importance of one's environment or spiritual atmosphere. Idea of atmosphere has multiple meanings when it refers not only to the physical environment or location, but also the world we live in and the air we breath- Satan's sphere of influence through deception, brainwashing, society and media. He also covers the different types of evil spirits or demons, based on their style of torment. As a Charismatic Christian writer, Franklin believes in literal spiritual gifts such as healing and the reality of demonic possession as he describes true incidents from his own life experiences. To his credit he does acknowledge that many mainstream readers may find these stories difficult to believe- nevertheless Jentezrn does not apologize or compromise on his faith. He does not water down his message or tone down the anecdotes he shares in his book for the sake of those who may scoff. He writes with credibility and authority and uses scripture to back up the validity of his message. The author gives a brief history on the origin of sin and Satan and how it relates to the deception and tactics of Satan we find that confront his. This background information gives the reader a complete and comprehensive view on the subject of sin and evil, in general as well as the particulars of Satan and his Python-like strategies to choke the life out of us. I believe every reader will be able to understand and relate to this book. I feel that every Christian can benefit and find renewal through this book as the author illustrates how Satan's python styled tactics interfere in every believer's life. As a blogger for the Booketeria I received this book published by Charisma House for the purpose of writing this review.

Jentezen Franklin in his new book, “Spirit Of Python book coverThe Spirit Of Python” published by Charisma House Exposing Satan’s Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You. From the back cover:  Break free from this subtle destroyer and reclaim a life of passion and purpose.  Pythons have an interesting way of killing their prey. They constrict it until it can no longer breathe, literally suffocating the life out of it. In the spirit realm Satan often works in the same way, slowly slithering his way into our lives, attempting to choke the very life out of us. The python spirit can squeeze the joy out of your worship and prayers. It can pressure you to keep quiet when God wants you to speak up. And it can steal the peace of knowing that you belong to God. But there is a way to defeat him. You don’t have to become his prey. The Spirit of Python helps you understand the strategies of this subtle destroyer, how he works, how to detect him, and how to break his hold from your life. You can learn to: •          Recognize the early warning signs that you are under attack •          Find the ways you may have unknowingly given him access into your home •          Bring God’s deliverance and restoration into every area of your life We are in the middle of an unseen spiritual war. God wants to break the coils of the serpent off of your life. He wants to help you breathe again. Pastor Franklin has divided his book into three sections.  Section One:  God Reveals A Deadly Enemy, Section Two:  The Python’s Plan To Squeeze The Life Out Of You, Section Three:  No Longer His Prey!  This is one of the most fascinating exposes I have ever read.  Everyone should read this book.  If you have ever found that you feel that your spiritual life is drying up or wasting away then perhaps it is being crushed out of you and you just didn’t know it.  I believe that this book should be read a number of times and then put on a shelf where it can be referred to over and over.  It is also a great gift for friends and family so that they, too, can learn about the spirit of python and get rid of him Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Charisma House.   I was not required to write a positive review.
