Escape the enemy's deadly trap! The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God - offense. Most people who are ensnared by the bait of Satan don’t even realize it. Don’t be fooled! You will encounter offense, and it’s up to you how it will affect your relationship with God. Your response will determine your future. If offense is handled correctly, you will become stronger rather than bitter. In this tenth anniversary edition of his best-selling book, John Bevere shows you how to stay free from offense and escape the victim mentality. With more than 400,000 copies in print, this audio book includes testimonials of transformed people who have read the original book and a devotional supplement, featuring discussion questions, scriptures, and prayers. You will find answers to tough questions like these: Why am I compelled to tell “my side” of the story? How can I fight thoughts of suspicion or distrust? What can I do to stop rehearsing past hurts? How can I regain trust after someone deeply offends me? This audio book will help you escape the enemy’s “offensive trap” as well as empower you to stay free of offense, enabling you to have an unhindered relationship with God.

"Forgiveness is the KEY"
This book was referred to me by a friend. Actually she said to be sure to get the hard copy because the book is so full of scripture you will want to look everything up the second go around.
Yea yea-- All I seem to have time for now a days is to listen. Get it!!!!!!!!!! There is so much information on forgiveness in this book. I struggle with forgiveness period!!! I guess when I forgave I wasn't truly in my heart letting it go, if I even forgave at all. I harbored grudges and lots of anger towards those that hurt or offended me. This book showed my how NOT to do that any longer. I am now working in the right direction in being able to forgive with an open and loving heart thru God, to truly cast my burdens on Him and FORGIVE and ASK for forgiveness!!! Forgiveness helps us to grow into the people that God really wants us to become. Loving, caring, full of kindness towards others and showing honor to Him.
Any place that you are at in your life, this book will show you so much more of Gods love and understanding. God's hand will be on you as you go thru this book and He will rain down His blessings when you finally receive the true understanding of forgiveness.
Get this book. Take the time to ask God to open your heart and to feel His presence while you are listening and He will guide you. You will see and feel the change.
In God's love and forgiveness,
"detox for the heart"
yes, most definitley. currently listening to it again. I want to keep fresh what I have learned and see if there is anything I missed the first time.
I could feel the annointing throughout the whole book.
sensitive to Gods voice
the whole book did, but the portion of when you justify your actions because you have been offended. when we do something, even though the bible backs us up... with what spirit, cause or reason am I doing it? vengence is mine says the lord... I finally get it.
This book is powerful and life changing. It is a must read for everyone who struggles with hurts. Forgiveness is necessary to go with life after one has been hurt. John did an excellent job writing this and presenting it. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
"Love John's preaching"
Relevance to personal situation and how easily he made it understood!
Yes, all of his teachings are relevant at one time or another.
I get a lot out of his teachings.
When it made me realise how I fell into Satan's trap!
"I am FREE"
this book was truly a blessing to me I would definitely encourage my wife to read it as well
"A Topic We All Need to Listen to and Understand"
This book tells about a very important doctrine from God's Holy Word and explains how God expects us to deal with offenses when they happen. John Bevere uses stories from his own life and from the Bible to illustrate the points of this doctrine so that we can understand how choices we make when we become offended can affect ourselves and others.
Some parts of this book are difficult to listen to and will evoke emotions that the listener will need to deal with after listening. I don't recommend listening in one sitting. I think it's best to take this book in pieces and deal with the emotions a little at a time.
"Excellent book, do yourself a favor and get it."
If you are a Christian struggling in any area of you life, and you are having a hard time putting your finger on the problem (or maybe you know) read/listen to this book. It was a true gift of the Spirit. I listened to the whole of the book while on a long drive and was convicted, edified, taught and blown away! I will be buying a copy to read and reread often.
"Can we earn salvation by being unoffended?"
I struggle with the idea that we are daily impacting our salvation based on how well we forgive. This is contrary to salvation based on grace so that no one can boast. The book had a very valid point in that if we withhold forgiveness, it will be withheld by God. However, the author seems to have forgotten that God knows our frame and remembers that we are from dust (Psalm 103). We cannot perfectly forgive others, because if we could do any task perfectly, we would progress towards not needing a savior. Read the book with discerning wisdom. If you are overly scrupulous, read with caution. Do not get tricked into thinking we can earn God's love and grace by impressing Him with our methods of human interaction. I derived helpful information from the book, but won't likely recommend it to my friends.
"forgiveness is possible"
if a person is struggling with bad memories anger resentment or any issue where they feel they cannot let go of hurt , yes this is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to get help
Powerful book. I'm buying the paper version too for reference. Life changing for sure- even in the few weeks since I've read it...
"absolute deliverance. Please purchase and read!"
This book proves that God has called me and the many others who have listen and read it. I now have a testimony. prepare to be humbled, then get ready to embrace peace like you never have in your entire life. I am still in amazement at the mysterious ways of how God calls us to peace. John thank you for allowing God to use you. Thank you! Thank you!
since becoming a christian and being baptised lots has gone on . struggling with forgiveness this book gives amazing insight and hope , I can highly recommend it.
