We are all familiar with Bible teachers whose knowledge fails to translate into vision, action or understanding. Conversely, there are teachers whose prophetic gift is considerable, but their grip on Scripture is weak. Christians are easily misled, becoming "prophet hunters rather than God chasers", as Rachel puts it. However, a good Bible teacher, alert to the Spirit's leading, is truly worth hearing. This balanced approach is a foundational element of Christian ministry that Rachel is anxious to share. "This book will take you, the reader, on a journey that will train you to respect and handle the word of God correctly and then equip the prophetic gift within you ...This book seeks to inspire you to read your Bible more deeply, speak His word more profoundly, and understand His revelation more completely."
Rachel Hickson and her husband Gordon run Heartcry, which helps local churches with training in the areas of prayer and the prophetic. Rachel experienced remarkable healing following a car crash at age 24. She has a widely recognised ministry using words of knowledge and is much valued as a preacher and evangelist.
