An Amazing Journey in Search of Love,
By Richard R. Blake (San Leandro, CA)
“The Path of a Prophet” is a chronicle of John Mark Pool’s spiritual journey. John Mark uttered his first word of prophecy as a three year old toddler. At age seven he responded to the salvation message and began preaching a few years later.
His journey took some detours over the years. These wrong turns are related here in hopes that the reader will be able to avoid the same mistakes. I, personally, appreciated John Mark’s openness in making himself vulnerable to the reader. This openness reveals his dependence on the Lord for his strength and his desire to bring honor to the Lord.
Returning from a preaching mission, John Mark came home an empty house. His wife had left him with their children and furniture. Heartbroken and devastated John Mark sought the Lord for His will and spiritual and emotional healing.
Two years later as an active staff member of a large church John Mark faced another set back. His staff position was abruptly terminated and he was banished from ever returning to the church property. Once more, claiming God’s love, and faithful to God’s calling on his life, as a prophet, John Mark went on to follow God. The Lord provided a new beginning in worldwide prophetic ministry and blessed him with the love he had been seeking for a lifetime.
Beautifully written “Path of a Prophet” is an amazing love story of God for man, and a man’s answer to the call of God on his life. Compelling.
