Soul's Gate by James L. Rubart - REVIEWED

About Soul's Gate
Book 1 in the Well Spring series.

"Every now and then we get a break from reality. A glimpse into the other world that is more real than the reality we live in 99 percent of our days. The Bible is about a world of demons and angels and great evil and even greater glory."
What if you could travel inside another person's soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds. To help set them free to step boldly into their divinely designed future.
Thirty years ago that's exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his future.

Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and teach them what he has learned.

They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity-and how to step into the supernatural.

Their training is only the beginning. The four have a destiny to pursue a freedom even Reece doesn't fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them and he'll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

My Thoughts:

You are life.  We need it.  You are freedom.  We long for it.  You are truth.  We have to have it.  Come now, Spirit of God.  Come now, Jesus.  Come, Abba.  We invite you in to do what you would do.  So be it.”  (Reece’s prayer early in the novel)

Oh reader, don’t read this book as you would some fairy tale.  I almost did.  And then I realized the truth that was captured in this story.  And it blew me away.  True, the Soul’s Gate journey is fiction in a literal sense, but the truth that all Christians are in a warfare against evil is very true.  Spiritual battles can and should be waged.  Believers need to believe God’s Word as truth and live in the victory that comes from listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit.

Soul’s Gate is an amazing story that, if you will open your heart and mind, will have a profound effect on your spiritual life.  I loved the brokenness of each of the characters.  I loved the way they wrestled against sharing the truth.  I loved the way that the truth did indeed set them free.  I love the fact that God has placed a “Reece” in my life at this moment, and I will be paying close attention to their guidance.

I’ll close with more words from Reece: “We are living in the midst of an epic battle that will not end till the new heaven and the new earth are revealed.  There are no neutral zones; there is no Switzerland in this fight.  And sticking our heads in the sand is not an option.”  VERY TRUE!! VERY TRUE!! Read this book! Seriously!
