About the Book:
The Next Great Move of God(Book by Dr. LaSalle Vaughn).
This author Dr. LaSalle Vaughn has written The Next Great Move of God-Christians Returning To Their Hebraic Roots. This book asks the question, “Have you ever considered the Jewishness of Jesus?” Most Christians are well versed on the topic of salvation but never leave the foot of the cross. As a result, they are likely to live defeated lives and experience many years of struggle and frustration. The purpose of this book is to equip people to look at the Bible through Hebrew eyes, helping to understand the need to be obedient to the entire Bible in a daily walk.
About Dr. LaSalle Vaughn (the author):
Dr. LaSalle Vaughn is the grassroots authority and advocate at the forefront of the next great move of God, which is Christians returning to their Hebraic roots. In addition to building the New Beginnings Childrens Home at Canaan Land Ranch a place of love, hope, and restoration for abused children, and authoring over fifteen books, he pastors one of the largest multicultural, multicolored congregations returning to their Hebraic roots in San Antonio, Texas.
When it comes to taking difficult and even controversial spiritual subjects and making them understandable, no one can do it more eloquently than Dr. Vaughn does. Vaughn is the quintessential teacher who himself studies under the leaders in this biblical field.
I haven’t not finished this book but I am almost half way through and so far I am learning so much from it. I do see a need for Christians today to embrace Jesus’ Jewishness, while not all of us will start keeping kosher or speaking Hebrew (and no I haven’t read that the author thinks this either) we seem to have lost sight that Jesus was in fact a Jew. There is not shame in that and the God we all serve is one that has grafted us Christians or Gentiles into that family!
One thing that I especially found myself agreeing with was the fact that some Christian churches preach that there are two different Gods. I’ve never understood this, since the Bible tells us that God is the same today as He was yesterday and will be tomorrow. The God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament are one in the same, and it seems that churches today have decided to create a new modern God – one that doesn’t condemn sin or looks the other way – when that isn’t the case at all.
Since I haven’t finished the book I can’t say for sure if I’ll go on enjoying it, but I must say the first half has been very interesting and enlightening. While I wouldn’t consider myself a Messianic (since I’m not Jewish and can’t convert) or a Hebraic Christian (I do enjoy celebrating Christmas as the time of our Saviour’s birth) but I can see how embracing our rich Hebraic culture can give us a more meaningful look into our Faith as Christians.
