Satan’s number one weapon is deception. The Church’s number one need is discernment. The Discerner will take you on a journey of discovery into God’s revelation for us today!

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.

About the Author


I just finished reading James Goll’s new book, The Discerner, and – wow! Let me say it this way: there are many books about hearing God’s voice, but this goes way deeper, gifting you from the riches of James’s life experience and prophetic ministry. It gives you a road map for navigating how to manifest the revelation you receive, and letting God change your n=very nature in the process. James is an encyclopedia of revelation and supernatural materials, and this book is like a capstone of all his previous wonderful works on revelatory gifting. I highly recommend it, and I immensely enjoyed it!

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 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 in to the gift of discernment to test the spirits. I thank God that James wrote this practical book. It is truly for such a time as this.
