This was a fascinating read to me. The Holy Spirit uses Jonathan to impart some amazing insight regarding the unseen realm, along with some terrific and practical godly wisdom. This book is worth keeping handy because it's worth going back to, again... and again.

This book has helped me understand how God uses me in this way. I have experienced alot of these things on my walk with God and this book has helped train me even more. Such a misunderstood gift that we should embrace.

Insightful book with a significant exercise of activation at the end of chapters. Affirms that God is all about signs and wonders. Gives more understanding to the supernatural and spiritual realm. Great book!

Enlightening and instructional, engaging the reader to take a trip into the supernatural with prayer journaling and mental visualizations.

This book was fantastic! I've been meaning to read it since July, so much truth and biblically-sound wisdom to help me press in deeper with my spiritual walk. Just what I needed.

Amazing practical advice for seeing in the Kingdom realm

I loved everything in this comprehensive book on seers and prophets and seeing in the Kingdom realm. I wish Jonathan would have gone in more detail about his personal experience with the month of seeing in the kingdom realm. I heard him talk about that experience in a podcast once and he went in a little more detail, so I wish there would have been more of that.

I enjoyed this book and really gained a lot from it. The only reason I rated it a 4 rather than 5 is that in a couple of places I thought Jonathan made a huge stretch in his interpretation of Scripture in order to make a point.

I really enjoyed this book, I had not heard of the Author prior to this book, I found it online, read the book, and then giften a couple copies to a couple of friend that I knew would benefit from it. I like Jonathan's approach to teaching, he explains everything in simple english. Also it was nice to see that others are having similar experiences in the supernatural without all the sensationalism that appears to be more common than not, lastly I should mention that a few comments he made in thi ...more

I loved this book and had a hard time not rushing through it. I had to slow myself down so I could really learn and experience every chapter through the activation sections.
This book is a practical guide for people who have or want the gift of discernment or what the Bible calls "discerning of Spirits". Everything he teaches in this book he backs up with scripture. He also gives practical exercises to help activate the gift of discernment in you. I highly recommend this book if you feel you ha

I have gleaned so many things from this book and it is one that I plan on referencing and going back to in the future. This was a very worth while read and so needed in the Body of Christ today! This book like no other explains the gift of discerning of spirits in full detail and how to stir that gift inside of us all. So glad I read it!

This book was a real blessing and it was definitely encouraging. I have never really been "spooked out" by the spiritual world but coming from a western-rationalize-everything-away culture, it was refreshing to read about the unseen realm. It is definitely not an exhaustive study but covers enough to get a thorough understanding. Highly recommend!

Enjoyable to experience such thoughts of others who have been given understanding in this realm as well. Worth the read.

I was told to stop reading with three chapters remaining for yet another time.

Technically I have not completely the book in its entirety, however, I have read what has been given unto me at this time.

This book is phenomenal!!! It was great to have solid biblical application and explanation of the spiritual gifts. I appreciate what Dr. Welton has to say, and it has greatly increased my walk with the Lord. I see and hear from Him like I never have before.

This book was a waste of money. He sounded like he was "tooting his own horn" rather than sharing wisdom. His knowledge was shallow and elementary, and inaccurate in many places.

Although I believe that his experiences may be true,he fails to educate properly on the topic.

Really good book full of practical insights on the gift of the discerning of the Spirit. A lot of reminders of things the
Lord has already shown, but good to be stirred up in these things. I recommend it.

This booked confirmed a lot of things for me. It was nice to have someone who already is operating in a prophetic realm magnitudes higher than your own to help you along. It wasn't a huge revelation for me, but I did get a lot out of it.

This book took so long to read not because it was difficult or boring, it just had exercises in the back and took a lot of thought. That combined with a crazy summer. I thought this was a great book and might read it again soon when I can digest it a bit more.

this is a very interesting book, worth reading as it is simple & understandable. It's my follow-up book to "the seers"

Importantly, I've learnt a lot from this 'teaching' book.

Love the scriptural references mixed with personal experience. The activations are also helpful as well. This is a practical guide for discerning spirits and prophetic seeing.

A fifth generation believer, Jonathan Welton is propelled by a powerful Christian heritage. Exhibiting extraordinary wisdom as a teacher, he helps individuals discover fresh experiences of kingdom realities. Even those who have grown up in the church are challenged afresh as they hear the unique perspective that Jonathan carries.

With a duel calling of both teacher and seer, Jonathan raises the st
“God has given us the tools to build enough faith to access any door, yet He leaves us our freewill to decide when to fast, when to pray, and when to listen. When we decide to build our faith, it is something we initiate, and then in response He increases our faith so that we can experience more of His Kingdom. This is a fundamental element in our relationship with God; He gives us the choice of the relationship we want: “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8 NKJV). Another way to say it would be, “The ball is in our court.” 2 likes
“Luke 4:18: “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed…” This verse is rarely thought of as referring to spiritual sight, but let us look a little closer. Jesus said that He was anointed to preach good news to the poor, which is a spiritual activity. He was anointed to proclaim freedom to the prisoners and to release the oppressed. I propose that this does not refer to actual prisoners and oppressed people, as evidenced by the fact that Jesus was not literally opening jail cells to set captives free. Instead, He healed and freed hearts and delivered others of demonic oppression. This leads to the conclusion that perhaps Jesus was not only healing the physically blind, which He certainly did, but also the spiritually blind.” 2 likes
