And the Word came with Power


In stock



“God show yourself stronger than the spirits!”

For years Joanne Shetler had prayed that prayer. And now the village was in an uproar. Two old women who were powerful spirit mediums had decided to worship God. The spirits were angry and the village was terrified. The people pleaded with Joanne: “Those women can’t do that, the spirits will kill them.”

In the past those who had tried to quit serving the spirits had paid with their lives. Now, everyone was watching, waiting for the two spirit mediums to die.

This is the dramatic story of how God set in motion events that knit Joanne and the Balangao people together in a spiritual battle that changed them forever. For centuries the Balangaos had worshiped the capricious and hard-to-please spirits who made relentless demands for sacrifices. They knew the spirits had power… did God have power?

You will be inspired and challenged by the simple obedience of this people transformed by the power of the Word.

Verse for today

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
