A good friend tells the story of a small industrial town that lost 100 percent of its electricity when the plant shut down. They called a local electrician to take a look at it. He was unable to fix the problem. The next step was to call the large electric company in the metropolitan city an hour away. An electrician was sent out. He took out a hammer and began to tap in one area, listen, and then tap another. He did this for an hour. Then he returned to the second area he had tapped and drew back and hit the area with his hammer at full strength. The lights came on in the city.
A week went by and the town received a bill for $100,000 for the electrician’s services. The town mayor was upset at the outrageous cost. A letter was sent to the electrician stating the town felt the amount was not fair for the amount of time and effort expended on this job. The electrician replied,
“The hammer cost $5.00. Knowing where to strike costs $95,995.00.”
The value of this small book lies in the fact that God, through the ages, has given us the place to strike with the hammer, and we have literally missed His clues for solving a great mystery. Now, He is pointing to the key place again to strike. When you know where to strike, it makes all the difference in the world! Take hold of your “hammer.”
I dare you!
Israel has always been God’s strategic family, meant to be used to bless the earth. If you are a born-again believer, you are entitled to Israel’s promised blessing. Now, that’s good news. Throughout Test Me!, I unravel the secret key to unlock where to use the hammer.
Finding this key will…
I will reveal to you what God has revealed to me, my family, and thousands of others: The Malachi Mystery!
I’ve always believed God has given us a decoder to the mysteries of His Word. Understand this: God has not hidden secrets from us; He’s hidden them for us. The only qualification for you to understand the revelatory keys to unlocking His mysteries is to give Him control of your entire life. When you decide to give Him your life, you become set apart from the rest of the world who has not yet declared allegiance to Him.
