Bill Johnson discussing the "Presence" (source)

Review of Chapter 4 authored by Bill Johnson:
"Recovering Our Spiritual Inheritance"[1]


“God is glorified by not speaking in plain language to you.
He’s glorified by speaking in parables, symbols and dark sayings.”

–Bill Johnson (TPOH, 31)


Though this chapter does not fit The Physics of Heaven’s exploration of the ways quantum science can energize the Christian faith (i.e., tap into Pentecostal power by harnessing the universe’s quantum “sounds, vibrations, or frequencies”), the authors decided to include Bill Johnson’s teaching “on recovering our spiritual inheritance... because there are whole realms of insights that belong to the people of God we’ve failed to explore and, therefore, haven’t been leaving as a legacy for future generations.”(TPOH, 29) If today’s indifferent Church fails to move forward by reclaiming “lost ‘God truths’,” “a vacuum forms that the enemy fills” and “future generations of Christians” will loose the inheritance this generation should have left to them.[2](TPOH, 29) In developing this theme, Johnson employs the word “inheritance(s)” and “generation(s)” numerous times.[3] The chapter’s title, “Recovering Our Spiritual Inheritance,” suggests that there’s an inheritance out there to be recovered, reclaimed and bequeathed to future generations. “It’s time to start constructing... a hundred-year vision,” he says later.(TPOH, 37) So what does Johnson mean by the “legacy” he wants this generation to reclaim and pass on to future generations of Christians?

“a time to keep silence, and a time to speak”
(Ecclesiastes 3:7b)


It has been ten years since the Herescope blog was first launched in the Fall of 2005. 832 posts later, we are still writing and publishing, but only by God’s grace. How much longer we can do this is fully in His hands. Times are darker. So many have drifted away from the faith. We continue to write and to warn because of our love of the brethren. Our hearts break daily as we see the consequences of a church gone astray from the glorious message of redemption found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Early in the 1980s I was a right-to-life activist and leader. My first experience on a live TV debate was with a man who was the director of the local abortion clinic. The interviewer was sympathetic to his position, not mine. I was intimidated and terrified. Throughout the interview the other two had the upper hand. Finally, near the end of the debate, the interviewer, in order to attain the appearance of objectivity, asked me to comment. I blurted out, “Abortion is a barbaric and brutal solution to a complex human problem. Surely we can find other more peaceful alternatives than the shedding of innocent human blood.” There was a prolonged moment of stunned silence. The abortion clinic director appeared shell-shocked and mumbled an inarticulate reply. The interviewer hastily concluded with a garbled “something to think about; thanks, folks, for watching.”

I was surprised at what had just come out of my mouth. But I meant it with all of my heart. I hated violence. It got me thinking about the shedding of innocent human blood. How long would God tolerate it? How long would we in America continue to live in peace and affluence? I had hoped for systemic revival – true revival where people repent – but it never came.[1] The abortion mills chugged along relentlessly, and slowly society – and the church – became acclimated to it.
