Books by Bill Johnson
Bill Johnson is the Senior Pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California, USA, a fifth generation pastor with a rich heritage in the things of the Holy Spirit.
The current outpouring began almost immediately after the Johnsons started to minister at Bethel in 1996, although at first only in seed form. Yet it grew rapidly and they began to see many healings including multiple cases of cancer healed. They rejoice that healings and miracles have become normal today.
Bill Johnson writes: ‘Many visit Redding weekly, hoping that God will touch them. I am happy to report that many leave well and whole. But many others leave in the same condition in which they came. I refuse to blame God for this, as though He has a purpose in their disease. While Jesus did not heal everyone alive in His time, He did heal everyone who came to Him. His is the only standard worth following.’
This move of God has brought Bill Johnson into a deeper understanding of the phrase, ‘on earth as it is in heaven’. Heaven is the model for his life and ministry. Jesus lived with this principle by only doing what He saw His Father doing. Learning to recognize the Holy Spirit’s presence, and how to follow His lead enables us to do the works of Christ, destroying the works of the devil. Healing and deliverance must become the common expression of this gospel of power once again, and not only in church, but in schools, workplaces and neighbourhoods.
Bill Johnson shares these understandings and his journey in his many books. A good place to start is with his first book, When heaven invades earth.
