Overview

Respected Prophetic Leader Offers Biblically
Grounded Predictions for What Is to Come

R. Loren Sandford has long been internationally respected as a grounded
and insightful prophetic leader. A regular writer for Charisma magazine's Prophetic Insight newsletter, he has cast a poignant prophetic vision for Christians everywhere during these uncertain times. Using Amos 2 and 3, Sandford presents detailed predictions of the days to come. He reveals the pattern of indictments and penalties leveled against Israel back then that mirror America and the Western world today.

Yet within his sober reflection, he reveals the heart of the Father and the hope of glory for the body of Christ. With clarity and piercing biblical insight, he helps believers understand what is to come, and he gives them practical advice on how to prepare spiritually--for the events that will unfold and for their role in all of it.

    Having studied under Elijah House Ministries, I have had the opp

    Having studied under Elijah House Ministries, I have had the opportunity to learn under Loren Sandford’s teachings back in the mid-90s. He comes from a spirit-filled family and ministry that ministers healing through prayer counseling, where repentance and forgiveness are key. He, of course, has moved on to become a pastor and called into the prophetic ministry.

    As the book covers states, “R. Loren Sandford is internationally respected for his integrity, accuracy and insight, casting a poignant, detailed, Biblically grounded prophetic vision for the future.” However, he considers his role as a pastor who loves people and longs to see them live well in the Lord Jesus Christ comes first over being a prophet. But he uses his prophetic gifts to prepare his people to grow, mature and be ready for what is coming next.

    I will say I definitely have some issues on his interpretation of some of the events/people involved, but that is not the crux of the book. There are many different interpretations, and he states that he does not claim to have absolute accuracy. All he asks is that we have an open mind, which I’ve done.

    What Loren does do is the exciting part of the book! He exhorts, corrects, disciplines, and teaches about what we need to do to be ready for in the coming days–the times before Jesus returns. He knows difficult times are coming, but he also points out the great opportunities we have to witness and bring others to Christ.

    Loren seems to be ‘hard’ on the America churches, but after reading how many churches are going astray from the cross of Christ, His resurrection, repentance, and salvation through Jesus alone, I can understand his pointing out heresy and false prophets. And he doesn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg.

    His loving heart is like a father’s heart (actually the Father’s heart) in wooing us back to the Lord. Repentance and humility with love seem to be the dominant themes for us to return to and seek God’s heart.

    He sets out three different parts in his book. Some of the titles sound easy to figure out, but Loren has deep, rich, meaty concepts that he shares. You won’t want to miss any of them:

    Setting the Tone: Having God Heart; God’s Heart Revealed; Toward a Genuine Revival
    The Days to Come: The Days of Amos Revisited; Five Years to Prepare; Repentance; Revealing the Sons of God; the Final Invitation: Revelation; Signs of the Baal Spirit; Strategic Prayer Fire; The Cloud of Glory Has Moved; The Great Apostasy; The Samson Generation; Revelation Events Foreshadowed
    Short Themes: Islam; A New Jewish Exodus; The Looming Threat of War; More on America

    He charges that the Church at large needs to wake up and be ready to help others when the difficult times arrive. To do that, some repentance is in store, as well as moving out of our self-centered mode of thinking. I prefer him ‘saying it as it is’ than beating around the bush. Sometimes we need that charge to get us up and moving.

    Loren’s book, Visions of the Coming Days, is not a hyped up, cataclysmic book to tickle our ears and instill fear. Knowing the background of Loren, he is one to listen to and learn from. His message of getting prepared is real and necessary today. Prayer will be a vital part of how things transpire, and the Body of Christ needs to get in touch with the Father’s heart and will for each of their lives through prayer. Time is short.

    I did find parts of the book hard to understand, with the cohesiveness shy of making sense. But the meat of the book came across in a very clear manner.

    This book was provided free of charge by E. Hollister of Chosen, a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.
