About the Book

Book: End-Time Shaking and Revival

Author: Guillermo Maldonado

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Theology/Eschatology

Release date: October 5, 2021

Shaking…Then Revival…Then Harvest!

The end times are unfolding before our eyes.

First, there will be unprecedented shakings.

Today, the world is shaking in alarming ways. And this is just the beginning. Nations, institutions, economies, families, individuals, the earth’s environment, the cosmos, the spiritual realm—in every dimension and sphere of life, we will see powerful waves of shaking that disrupt the course of our lives and take away our false sense of security in earthly resources, compelling us to return to our Creator.

The main purpose of these shakings is to judge the people of the world for their sin and rebellion against God. Yet God is using the shaking we are now experiencing to refine believers so we will be purified to become the remnant that is ready for Jesus’s imminent appearing.

Second, there will be unprecedented revival.

As we respond to the shaking with repentance and wholehearted devotion to God, we will be prepared to take an active role in the coming last-days revival in which God’s sovereign glory will be revealed! There will be an all-inclusive supernatural movement characterized by miracles, healings, salvations, financial provision, prophetic visions, renewed holiness, powerful worship, strong discipleship, and profound love.

Finally, there will be an unprecedented harvest of souls with global impact!

The Holy Spirit will empower the church to reach the lost with the demonstration of miracles, signs, and wonders. Millions of people worldwide will come to genuine repentance, surrendering their hearts to the Lord Jesus.

In End-Time Shaking and Revival, best-selling author Guillermo Maldonado expands on last-days themes introduced in his previous books, revealing how to…

  • Avoid God’s judgment
  • Respond correctly to the divine shakings in your life and in the world
  • Be revived and continuously filled with the Spirit
  • Participate in the worldwide harvest
  • Move in supernatural power

We must understand God’s cycle of end-time events so we can align our lives with His momentous purposes in these last days!

MY REVIEW 

 This book talks about signs that the end times are coming. Just think about the last few years we have gone through. We saw financial crisis, jobs lost, a pandemic and more violence break out. The author talks about the shaking of the church and preparing for when Jesus returns. He does sound passionate about what he writes but there were some points I didn’t agree with. I have been hearing for years that Jesus is coming soon. Yet we don’t know when that is, so why do people keep saying he is coming soon? Maybe it is a wake up call for Christians. We don’t know when but we know He is coming back. Are we ready for Him? That’s what I take away every time  I hear that phrase. 

I thought the author made some good points and used scripture to illustrate his points. The author talks about natural disasters we have seen more frequently and how we need to start paying attention to what is going on around us. I liked some parts of the book but then I stumbled on a reoccurring theme. The author in just about every chapter talks  about his ministry and promotes it as much as he can. This disappointed me because the book has some  useful information that was  overshadowed by his mention of his ministry too much. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

From Isolated to Influence

 

“He’s not listening,” Cathy fumed, as the civic leader towered over her. She went home and “plopped open” her Bible.

 

There’s got to be something here about people who don’t listen. She found over 40 ways Jesus communicated.

 

Plus, she gained new respect for one of the most fascinating women in scripture. Jesus, the Master Communicator, engaged the woman at the well in just one conversation. She immediately zipped from lonely to leadership. We can, too!

MY REVIEW 

How many of us have heard someone say to you, “We need to talk.” Oh my I know this isn’t going to be good if it is my spouse saying that. I am already thinking of ways to defend myself even though I have no idea what the conversation is going to be about. What if instead it was a conversation that would improve our relationship? Many of us don’t like confrontation and would rather say nothing. In this book I found great ideas of communicating with others in a gentle spirit.

I’m not one to hold back how I feel about what things , which at times was very hurtful to who I was speaking with.  But there are times when I’m in a room full of people that I feel all alone. The simple reason is that I don’t want to be rejected by anyone, so I say nothing, I wonder how many friends I could have had if I had just had faith? We sometimes don’t want to have difficult conversations with others because it is a hard subject to talk about. “If we want to be influential in our relationships, we do this with a spirit of Love.” 

The author draws on the story about the woman at the well and explores how conversations can be started and flourish. The woman was a bit timid as she approached the well. After all, no one liked her and certainly didn’t want to talk to her. But one person did and his name was Jesus. What a glorious moment that must have been to have Jesus talk to the woman who others avoided. That one moment in  time changed how the woman felt about herself. Can you remember a time when you were feeling down and someone came to you and encouraged you? Don’t miss your chance to speak to someone who may be hurting. Reach out to those who are bullied and rejected. Start conversations that open doors to sharing the Word with others. 

I liked the different examples from the Bible as well as personal accounts the author used  to  shows different ways to communicate. One thing I noticed was the importance of prayer. It is our way to communicate to God. Have we forgotten to pray before speaking with someone about a problem? Do we invite Him into our conversations? We need to be able to speak truth without being afraid. How we approach it is important. Come with a gentle spirit and allow God to give you words of wisdom as you talk through any problems. 

I will say that at times the author confused me, it seemed like some chapters ran together and there was no real subject that stood out. The author rushed through some keys points and at other times stayed on a subject too long. Perhaps the book could use a bit more direction in some areas with more precise follow through with thoughts and examples. Even though this book was not my favorite I do think there are a few helpful insights.

About the Author

aprilApril Hayman lives in the high desert of California with her husband and their three sons. During the day, she focuses on homeschooling the boys and working on client projects. She writes at night when the temperature outside is only somewhat cooler than during the day.

Her passion for reading began in grade school and her teachers often reprimanded her for reading when she should have been completing her math assignments. Now she reads whenever she likes and writes for those who love to read.

April collects fountain pens, has too many pen pals (and always looking for more), journals sporadically, creates art when she can squeeze it in, and hordes stationery.

 

More from April

I’ve always loved to write. I still remember pounding out a science fiction story about a lizard man on my Grandmother’s typewriter, with its sticky ‘e’ key, then excitedly asking to read it to her. She patiently listened and praised my writing. I was thrilled even though, now as an adult, I realized she was humoring me. I continued to write on an off for the next twenty years, but it wasn’t until I found National Novel Writing Month that I really began to write in earnest.

 

I’d already begun my search into story structure and, one day while researching, NaNoWriMo popped up on my browser window. Interested, I clicked over and I was intrigued. Here was a chance to write 50,000 words in thirty days with a support group of other writers! And, with a day to go, I signed up. After all, how hard is it to write 50,000 words?

 

Turns out, it’s super hard. Especially when you’re new to story structure, developing characters, and correct pacing. It was a fabulous disaster of a story, but I did manage to hit my mark and “win” that year. And, best of all, I’d met Chautona Havig. She and I became friends and her brilliant writing advice and support has meant the world to me.

 

Every year after that, except when I moved away, I participated. Eventually I became a Municipal Liaison, the head volunteer and writer wrangler, for our area. It was a lot of fun but not one of those books has been published. They’re just for me and I love them, even if they’re awful.

 

Eventually, my participation was noticed by my three boys. While all of them enjoy reading to varying degrees, writing was always hard for them. Not that they don’t love to tell a good story. It’s the writing part that’s hard. Anyway, my eldest son finally decided to join the Young Writers Program (NaNoWriMo for pre-teens and teens) one year and got bitten by the writing bug. We’re currently working on his latest story. I’m so happy to have passed on my love of writing to him and his brothers!

MY REVIEW 

 I really enjoyed reading about a woman pilot with the setting in the early 1920s. Willie is an exception character with fierceness and skills that other pilots wish they had. She wasn’t well received as a pilot because who ever heard of a woman pilot. I cheered when she took to the skies and did stunts that took my breath away. Her life changes when she goes to Hollywood as a stunt pilot. What an exciting time she had as she improved her skills. 

Hugh was a large man but I think his demeanor was quite gentlemanly when it came to being around Willie.  His size may intimidate others, but not Willie. She finds him intriguing but he will not share anything about his family. Willie was a little upset that he didn’t trust her enough to confide in her. 

I wasn’t familiar with the fairytale this story was loosely based on so I had to read it. My curiosity got the best of me and I had  to know more details to see how the author interpreted the fairytale. I must say her creativity was amazing and I love the direction she took readers where  greed, power and jealousy are found in several characters.  I liked how Hugh protected Willie by going away. There is where the story really gets good. 

We are introduced to Queenie who happens to be a pilot like Willie. I did not like Queenie at all because she was arrogant, prideful and deceitful. There is much at stake for Queenie and her family as they are involved with dealings that could put them behind bars. Her tricks find Hugh in a situation that could cost him his happiness. The action starts when Willie and Queenie decide to fight for the person they love. The author captivated me by how these two women were going to duel it out. What an edge of your seat moment as the planes come  to life as danger draws near. Who will win the race? Can Hugh  be saved from making a big mistake? These questions can be found in the pages of this story that draws on the emotions of greed and deception to take what they want. In the end, does greed pay off? 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
