Overview

Trying the Spirits by Terry Ivy

"There is nothing as exciting as when we first come to Christ and realize that the Holy Spirit becomes the guide to lead us through life. Realizing our sins have been forgiven through Jesus Christ and having the joy of knowing and hearing God's voice is beyond description. Then something happens. We discover that many other voices join in the fray, attempting to compete with Jesus in convincing us of God's will for our life."

In "Trying the Spirits", author Terry Ivy shares the Scriptural mandate of how believers are to test every spiritual impression, teaching and manifestation. He walks us through the seven biblical principles we should use to avoid deception. This book is for anyone who desires to embrace the majestic work of the Holy Spirit in our generation without becoming a recipient of religious foolishness.

About the Author

Terry Ivy is a husband, father, pastor, speaker, author and church planter. He surrendered to Christ in 1980 at the tender age of 18 and entered full time ministry in 1985. He is the author of many books dealing with the life of the believer and helping leaders understand some of the complex issues of ministry. Terry is also the founder of Project India, a ministry which trains indigenous church planters for taking the gospel to rural unreached areas of india. Since Dec. 2011 he has overseen the planting of 176 churches in previously unreached areas with over 35,000 new converts. He, along with his wife Susanne, have established an orphanage in India which cares for 16 children.

Nothing excites Terry as sharing God's Word to challenge and encourage leaders and believers, and in sharing God's love and truth to those who do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Meeting, encouraging and spending time with other believers, especially leaders, is one of the great joys of his life. Terry has spent his life pouring over God's Word in order to discover the treasures of the Lord has given us. In 2008, he was diagnosed with cancer and experienced the horrors of chemotherapy and radiation. However, as he will tell anyone, those times were 'painfully precious' and brought the understanding of God's heart even closer in his life. A devotional book for those going through suffering is in the working.

Terry and Susanne have been married since 1983 and have 3 grown boys: Joshua (1987), Joseph (1989) and Joel (1992). Terry lives in Mississippi, but is available for travel and speaking engagements.
