Publishers Description The western Church has an unhealthy force in her midst, warns prophetic pastor Loren Sandford. It is a consuming focus on "self" and it is eroding ministry and blocking revival. Sandford speaks to the growing undercurrent of hunger for what is truly authentic. He explains the critical need for sacrifice and challenges the church to return to the cleansing power of Jesus' blood. Readers who long for a return to true faith and genuine prophecy will find their spirits refreshed by this message and see new power and life in ministry. Anyone with a heart for prophecy, intercession, and revival will answer this call to recover biblical focus and rediscover biblical levels of Holy Spirit manifestation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Purifying The Prophetic?
Here are some endorsements: Nov 19, 2005
"In Purifying the Prophetic, Loren challenges us to uproot and overthrow some of our culturally acceptable New Testament traditions and errors. He pleads passionately for the Church to experience God's love to such a degree that the kingdom of self is displaced with a culture of honor, purity and love. The results? A fatherless generation will be drawn home to the Father's house."--Jack Frost, author, Experiencing Father's Embrace; cofounder, Shiloh Place Ministries
"This is the first time I have read a book that is speaking correctives into the prophetic movement, as well as into other areas of popular Christian culture. It has the benefit of being written by a highly prophetically gifted leader. The book is forthright in its message and may offend some people. If it is read in the light of the spirit intended, however, it will bring desperately needed correctives into today's Church and into the wonderfully God-wrought ministering gift of prophecy. Loren has been a friend of mine since 1995. At that time he prophesied life, future and hope over me during a very difficult period of my life. I recommend Purifying the Prophetic to all who move in prophetic ministry already, to all who want to move in prophetic gifting in the future, and to all those who are about to give up on prophetic ministry because of the problems associated with it."--Fred Wright, international coordinator, Partners in Harvest
"This timely book will enable you to keep the scriptural mandate to 'despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good' (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21). This is a much-needed work."--John Arnott, senior pastor, Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship
"Loren Sandford's book Purifying the Prophetic is an in-your face, gut-checking, heart-wrenching, reality-based review of current prophetic paradigms that need serious adjusting. It would serve the reader to be warned beforehand: reading this book could cause your blood pressure to rise."--John Paul Jackson, founder, Streams Ministries International
Purifying the Prophetic - a word for the emerging church of our times Sep 29, 2005
What I love about this book is that it encapsulates the exact and specific point of failure in the things addressed. It defines and verbalizes the failure (and the true solution) in simple,clear,and accurate measures.
The solution being: embracing and living in the true Spirit of Christ. This book clearly defines and identifies the elements of living out true Christ life minus extra clutter and agendas.
What a word for our times and for the true church! What a call to BE the true church! Of course scripture contains all this truth however we have been subverted from the true meaning of it and through repetitive wrong teaching or preaching missed these VITAL truths in it.
I will be getting more copies for giving away. I already know of a few who would be greatly encouraged and helped by it as I.
Purifying the Prophetic could become a manual for the emerging true church in this time we are coming into. It supersedes any outward circumstances and so, whatever the end of all that's going on the stuff in this book is useful across economical, natural, and even I daresay cultural boundaries (even tho it is focused toward Western culture)
