The little book, "In Him," is by Kenneth E. Hagin. He is the best Bible teacher that I have found, among those in full-time ministry. Better than any pastor, or evangelist, or any other teacher. I believe I've learned more from him than from any other man on earth. I guess he passed away in about 2003, at about age 87, but he wrote close to 100 books while he was on earth, most of which were best-sellers (selling over a million copies each). He also has audio tapes, etc.
You can go to www.Rhema.org on the internet, for more books by Kenneth E. Hagin. At the home page, click on "bookstore." His son, Kenneth W. Hagin is also an author and a pastor, but I prefer the books by Kenneth E. Hagin. That website is for Rhema Bible Training Center, Broken Arrow, OK, near Tulsa, OK.
Another rather good Bible teacher is Norvel Hayes (www.nhm.cc). I saw him not long ago on the GTV channel (about channel number 364, or so), on Direct TV.
Norvel Hayes has a Bible School in Cleveland, TN. Seems like it's called, New Life Bible College. He has written some books and has audio tapes. See www.nhm.cc Hayes was telling on TV about one of his Christian students who had something wrong with her legs. She was able to walk with the help of crutches. Hayes told her to command her legs to be normal every day. She started doing that every day, and sometimes more than once a day.
Hayes said after about six months, she went to the shopping mall with her friends, and was walking along with her crutches. She felt the power of God come on her, and threw down her crutches, and walked off with normal legs. I believe it happened just that way. Thank you, Lord Jesus!
An important thing for Christians to have is the Baptism with the Holy Ghost, with the speaking in unknown tongues (unknown languages). In Acts chapt 1, Jesus said, "You'll receive power after the Holy Ghost has come on you." It's more power for the Christian, and the Lord wants every Christian to have it.
Unfortunately, some have been taught against it. A Baptist preacher in Houston, TX tried to tell me the Baptism with the Holy Ghost with the speaking in unknown tongues has been done away with. Oh really? Then how did I get it when I was about 13 or 14 years old? And how have I been able to pray in a language I never learned, and don't understand, every day since then, for the last half century? No, it hasn't been done away with. That man was taught wrong, so he teaches wrong.
In Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John, John the Baptist says that Jesus is the baptizer with the Holy Ghost. So, ask God for Jesus to baptize you with the Holy Ghost. The evidence that you have received it will be that you speak in a language you don't understand. But God understands all languages.
Now God doesn't take control of your mouth and tongue. No, he gives you words to speak, and then you give those words your voice, and speak them out.
"But when you pray, believe that you receive the things you ask for, and you shall have them.", says Jesus in Mark chapt. 11. It's no good asking God for something without putting your faith with your request, and expecting to receive what you're asking for.
