“I want to do more than hear a word from God. I want to become that word.
That is revelation’s ultimate purpose—for the Word to become flesh.”

—James Goll
What is “prophetic revelation” from God? And what is the believer’s role in receiving and activating it? James Goll, author of the best seller The Seer, explains that although some believers are especially gifted as prophets, every follower of Jesus receives the gifts of revelation and discernment. And every believer needs to use them! In fact, without discernment and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, we cannot progress in our use of any of the gifts and callings. With clear explanations, scriptural illustrations, and real-life contemporary stories, Goll demonstrates how we can receive revelation through the natural senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste—and how to open ourselves up to the comparable supernatural senses through which God wants to speak. He also removes uncertainty about how to discern revelation and test the spirits, so that every believer can fulfill their ultimate purpose: extending Jesus’ powerful kingdom on earth. The Discerner is both a wonderful introduction to the prophetic lifestyle and a challenging call for those already immersed in prophetic revelation.

   When I think about my friend James Goll, I think of a man without compromise, a man without guile. He reminds me of the prophet Daniel in the Scriptures because he is single in focus and a man of integrity. His life, in good times and in bad, seems to be a prophetic parable of God’s limitless grace working in the life of His servant. This servant of the Lord is also one of the finest students of the Word I have ever met. His pursuit of all that is true seems to attract insights and revelation in a measure that is not normal for most of us. James Goll’s passion is to make it practical, and then give it all away. I believe the book The Discerner is a gift from this prophet to the church. And much like his book The Seer, it will mark the church for decades to come. Read, enjoy, and be inspired, equipped, and empowered for such a time as this.

  As I travel the nation teaching spiritual warfare principles, one truth becomes painfully clear: the body of Christ, at large, lacks discernment. The reality is that many believers have simply not been activated or trained to discern spirits. Yet discernment is a vital gift in this hour as false prophets, false teachers, and even false christs are rising around the world with smooth sayings, rhymes, and riddles.
Discerning of spirits is one of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit Paul lists in 1 Corinthians 12:7–11. It is the Holy Spirit-inspired ability to distinguish between the operations of the Holy Spirit, a demon spirit, and the human spirit. Discerning of spirits is especially helpful in prophecy, where we need to test the spirits to see if they are of God (1 John 4:1). It’s also vital in spiritual warfare so that we accurately determine what we’re battling instead of just beating the air through guessing games (1 Corinthians 9:26).
James Goll’s latest book, The Discerner, equips the body in discernment. Given the goings-on in the world and in the church, this book is right on time. Readers will understand, with clarity, how to press into the gift of discernment in its many manifestations, as well as cultivate biblical discernment to test the spirits. I thank God that James wrote this practical book. It is truly for such a time as this.
