I read the Kindle version of HEAVEN AWAITS THE BRIDE while my husband was driving us to Moravian Falls, NC, and back. I had read about the book on a Moravian Falls Website, which posted Sid Roth’s (“It’s Supernatural“) interview with Anna Rountree. I figured that the book would put me in the mood for visiting Moravian Falls, an area dedicated to God by the Moravians, a Protestant denomination. It did.
Often I start a book and don’t finish it, but this book was an exception. I couldn’t put it down. The book made me examine my own walk with the Lord. Do I “love God with all [my] heart and with all [my] soul and with all [my] might?” (Deuteronomy 6: 5, Luke 10: 27).
Despite the elaborate descriptions of Jesus, the heavenly hosts, and the throne of God, Rountree’s statement about loving the Lord above all else moved me the most. In fact, I would say that the theme of the book boils down to Deuteronomy 6:5.
What does it mean to love the Lord with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might? I’m not sure but I’m determined to find out. This life-changing book is revolutioning my relationship with God through His Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). The book is “deep” and reads like an allegory; but make no mistake. Anna Rountree makes it clear that everything she wrote actually happened, and I believe her. Also, she backs up her portrayal of heaven with scripture after scripture.
Before you read HEAVEN AWAITS THE BRIDE, it’s helpful to have at least a basic knowledge and understanding of the Bible. Thank you, Ms. Rountree for sharing your story.
