Overview

Under Cover: The Key to Living in God's Provision and Protection by John Bevere, Tom Parks

To walk in true spiritual authority, a believer must be submitted to God’s sovereign authority. In this book, John Bevere shows readers how submission to this divine order grants the Kingdom’s provision and protection.

John uses his personal mistakes to illustrate riveting truths about repentance and forgiveness. As he focuses on the true authority of God, he is careful to explain by example the important difference between “submission” and “obedience.” The same struggle with divine authority is also represented through the lives of John the Baptist, the Apostle Paul, and other biblical figures.

Excellent teaching on understanding Authority; the difference between obeying and submitting. This is a truly liberating teaching and truth from the word of God. John Bevere, certainly lines it up with the Word. You're life will be changed. Truly you will then understand Psalm 91 and what it means When it say's "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed Under the Shadow of the Almighty. Be blessed!

John Bevere, I believe, is a sincere man of God who intends to encourage God's people with biblical truth; however, on this subject I found his handling of Scripture a bit misplaced in some instances. He tends to rely heavily on the traditional ideals of positional leadership and authority, which are popular among most of those who teach 'covering theology.' The concept of 'church covering' is not even found one time in the New Testament and Jesus, in fact, told His disciples NOT to serve His body as 'authorities' who were over them, bearing titles and having men address them as such (Luke 22:25-27; Matthew 23:8012). A study of church history reveals that most of the implications of 'official' ministry terminology found in our KJV's come from romanistic influence and do not appear in the original texts and are unheard of in the first couple centuries of Christian writings. For example, many passages in the NT that refer to 'offices' of ministry simply refer to 'serving', 'leading by example', or 'being watchful and caring for' the Lord's flock (emphasis on the flock being 'the Lord's') not ruling or excercising authority over others. Jesus' own directive to His disciples was, if you want to be great, serve! Lay your life down! Wash feet! The principle service of the 'leader' is to serve and build up the body, to cause her to mature in Christ and become dependant upon her Lord and learn to hear and follow Him as the Head. This happens from the 'bottom-up' NOT the 'top-down.' Today, in many churches, men are viewed as the head of the church body and programs and authority structures are emphasized over personal relationships and the necessity of knowing Christ and submitting to the prompting of the Spirit. Unfortunately, Bevere misses it also when he encourages believers to submit to church authorities even when they are out of line and depart from truth. The Bible NEVER sanctions such requirements on believers! Bevere suggests, in essence, that by obeying leaders it is the same as obeying Christ (even when they are wrong) and that by disobeying leaders it is the same as disobeying the Lord. Such teaching is also absent from the Word! The apostles encouraged the flock to always obey God rather than men. While the book makes some positive statements about the atributes of good and godly leadership (which I enjoyed), there are a number of other (what I believe to be) unbiblical directives and perspectives shared concerning submission to leadership and the very idea of 'being under' men, which is opposite of what Scripture teaches, which is that leadership is not positional, but functional and works 'along side of' the body, building her up. An absolutely excellent book on this subject that I would rather recommend is 'Who Is Your Covering' by Frank Viola. Frank's book involves a direct study of specific passages in the New Testament regarding the subject of leadership in the church, rather than just pages of perspective and traditional teaching. Frank leaves no stone unturned in this book and every question about biblical leadership and the popular concepts of 'covering' are dealt with extensively. Another fantastic title is Watchman Nee's book, 'The Normal Christian Church Life.'

In my search for understanding why sometimes you can be right, but still be wrong in the eyes of God this book helped me to see that although we may be right about things doesn't mean we break rank and get out of the will of God concerning the church we are in or the leadership God has called us under. I had been in the valley of decision as far as church and God lead me to read this book. It will bless you and set you free.

Just a quick note...this book's title has changed to 'Under Cover- Your Secret Place of Freedom'. Definitely a must read!
