"A person is vaccinated by receiving a dead or weakened version of a virus in order to make him resistant to it. Satan, the father of lies, works to undermine and weaken our understanding of the gospel, so that we become resistant to it." "If you apply these simple gospel truths, they will bring you into a present experience and demonstration of heaven." The gospel is designed to bring us into a present experience of heaven. If we are not experiencing heaven now, we should consider how we may have become resistant to gospel truths. Present Access To Heaven helps us to do just that, dealing with every lie and hindrance that is keeping us from experiencing heaven now and walking as heavenly people. It makes a scriptural case for just how much is possible right now in Christ, and is full of true stories illustrating the truths presented.

Jonathan Brenneman was born in Rochester, New York and raised in Pennsylvania. Although a very troubled child he was at the same time very religious. He read the Bible from cover to cover when he was seven years old, all the while questioning and wondering about the existence of God. When Jonathan was nine years old, he woke up one morning with bad back pain. His mother prayed for him, and to his surprise, he felt something like a hot ball of energy rolling up and down inside his back, and the pain melted away. It was shocking to say the least, but it convinced him God did exist! He later told his friends, "I know that God is real. I felt his hand on my back." Jonathan dedicated his life to the Lord as a missionary, going on his first mission trip at age fourteen. As a teenager and young adult he continued to travel and learn languages. Then, when he was twenty-one and during a time of desperation, Jonathan went to a Christian conference where he was very encouraged and touched by the Lord. It was a start of a supernatural lifestyle and growing in spiritual gifts during which time many amazing miracles and healings began to happen. Jonathan worked in construction, but in between jobs he began to visit churches in the United States and Canada as well as in Latin America and Eastern Europe. His ministry journeys have included Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Belize, and Brazil. In these places Jonathan has encouraged the believers and shared testimonies, and spoken with unbelievers and prayed for them. He also worked with children and seniors. He dedicated a lot of time to talking with, praying for, and encouraging people wherever he went, all the while growing in an experience of a love for people that is beyond understanding--for it is God's love. Jonathan believes it is a wonderful and tremendous privilege to be able to serve the people for whom Jesus gave his life. Jonathan now lives in Rio de Janeiro Brazil with his wife Elizabeth and daughter Rebekah. He loves people very much, enjoys being with them, and rejoices at seeing what the Holy Spirit does in their lives. He likes to minister in the role of caring for people, laying hands on the sick, visiting the elderly, and working with children--always with the intention of loving them so they in turn will learn to love others with the love of God."
