The foremost training series in the world teaching you how to become emotionally whole by hearing the voice of the Wonderful Counselor (Isa. 9:6)! This is the key book upon which the rest of the products in this series are built upon.

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear or guilt? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?

Yes, there is! It is built on your ability to commune with God and to receive a freshly spoken word from the Holy Spirit within your heart. These materials will show you the way to emotional wholeness through personal interaction with Almighty God within your spirit, as it is recorded in your journal.

A genuine word from the Lord heals the broken-hearted. All the “how to” books can never do what a rhema word from God can do for the inner man. You will learn to let God speak to your heart and counsel you about the basic emotional pressures of life such as anger, doubt, depression, condemnation and inferiority. You will learn to let God replace these with His opposites, as His voice releases His grace within your heart. Those whom the Son sets free are free indeed!

"His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor" (Is. 9:6).

"The words that I (Jesus) have spoken to you are spirit and are life" (Jn. 6:63).

Counseled by God was formerly titled Pure in Heart.

Testimonies from Those Who Have Learned to be Counseled by God

 

Counseled by God has played a huge role in cementing my healing from depression in the autumn of 2009. This book has provided a stream of hope, confidence, passion and love, which has led me to marriage, to paid employment, to voluntary activities and to a greater-than-ever love of God and of people, including myself. To me, this book has been a miraculous and supernatural study guide. I am so grateful to God for His inspiring the creation of this book.  I so want to promote this book to friends as ‘the best thing since sliced bread’. ” Simon John Townend

The Counseled by God Course Brought Deliverance with Assurance
by Camille Stevens, a CLU student

Do you feel like no matter how much you serve God, you really should be doing more? Do you ever wonder if the more time you give to “ministry”, the more God will love you? Do you think you just might earn extra points with Him based on the number of hours you spend in church a week? Do you feel guilty saying “no”?

If so, read this. Camille shares her journey of being counseled by God through condemnation, anger and more with refreshing openness and honesty, in a way we all can relate to. Click here for her story. You’ll feel better just for reading it!

 

 


“Abandon Yourself to My Love”Two-Way Journaling from Vince Rizzo
My son, I love you with an everlasting love. I desire for you to seek Me with your whole heart. My plans to use you are immense, however you will need to walk closer to Me in order to fulfill all that I have planned for you.

You are so busy with many things - some that I have called you to take on and some that I haven’t. Learn of Me and learn of the rest and peace that I offer. Learn to enter into My rest, and when you have mastered this you will find true peace and happiness and you will find that I can still accomplish much through you without the pressures you sometimes feel.

You are on the beginning phase of a new journey that I am taking you on. You are learning new skills from obtaining intimacy with Me and you will take these truths and teach others. Don’t feel like you have to learn everything overnight. I know that you are excited but just take it one day at a time and we will do it together.

Intimacy with Me is developed over time and stillness is a gift. And it is My gift to you as you don’t think that you can remain still with all of the energy and a million things to do and to think about; however, with My help it is possible. As I have said in My Word, learn of Me and I will give you rest. Many are unwilling to sit at My feet. If you are willing, you will be amazed at what we can do together throughout each and every day. The gifts that I have given you can only be learned and mastered through your intimacy with Me. Knowing Me in an intimate way is the only way to truly imitate Me and to walk out My life through you.

You are an expression of Me only when you are walking closely with Me. I am the vine and you are a branch grafted into Me. You must stay attached to Me in order to grow and blossom into all that I have for you. Ease yourself of all pressures as I’m with you and will go before you to make you a success.

You have a great amount of passion within you and know that it was placed there by Me. This passion will be contagious to others and they will see your spiritual hunger and they will become hungry, too, by being around you. You soak up knowledge like a sponge soaks up water. When pressed upon, that which is in you flows out in abundance. Keep soaking, My son, and keep overflowing to all that you come in contact with.

From here on in I’m calling you to a closer walk. I have called you as a prophetic seer and a dreamer of many dreams. Learn of My ways in this area and as you press in with your faith, you will begin to see more and more clearly.

Like all gifts, your sight must be developed and your faith strengthened by constant and consistent use. Up to this point you have only tasted a small portion of what I have for you in this area. You have always heard My voice and have dreamed dreams; however, now you are going to gain the tools necessary to develop them for My glory and kingdom. Free yourself of all hindrances and abandon yourself to My love.

We provide several resources to help you present this powerfully and effectively in a group setting, including DVDs and application activities.

We have trained coaches who have mastered this topic who will commit to working with you for a 90-day period.
