Born from Bethel Church’s high spiritual energy conference for women, ‘What if…’ Beni Johnson, Sheri Silk and other keynote speakers present their evidence of what can happen when you attach your own unfulfilled dreams to the will of God and pursue them in his power.
Describing the conference, Beni Johnson wrote: “The word most often used to describe what the Lord is saying is HOPE! There is so much hope for the future! That is what I have on my heart for this year’s Women’s Conference… that God would touch each woman who is coming and that she would have heavenly encounters and live out her destiny! Fully alive people have great plans!”
So what if... you fulfilled your dreams and weren’t afraid any more? What if you needed healing and received it? If you believed in yourself and partnered yourself to the most amazing God you could learn to live out of your passion. Beni and Sheri invites you to join your hopes and dreams with God's love and, with his anointing, be transformed and released to see what he will do through you.
With contributions from Brittney Serpell, Dawna DeSilva, April LaFrance, Theresa Dedmon, Jenni Johnson and Julie Winter, these inspiration women authors and speakers show you what can happen you live out the instruction of Romans 12:2 - “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will,” in the power, strength and love of this most amazing God.
What If... by Beni Johnson and Sheri Silk was published by Destiny Image in January 2013 and is our 17208th best seller. The ISBN for What If... is 9780768403114.
Praise for Beni Johnson's from readers of her other books:
• The Happy Intercessor
"God bless you Beni for your clear, uncomplicated, honest walk through your experiences. It is a must for everyone who prays. It will save you some pain and bring you into a deeper measure of your calling, with results!I read it in two days, It was so cool to read."
"Well grounded in the Bible and full of practical examples of prayer projects she has been involved with. It puts prayer back in its proper place: fun, dynamic, effective, worthwhile, based in Scripture, led by the Spirit, and full of adventure. I love the way she builds on different aspects of prayer. It's a book that I expect go back and revisit."
"A delightfully refreshing and very positive look at intercession. A joy to read, very practical and has revolutionised the way I see intercession."
• The Joy of Intercession
"Beni has a deep relationship with God and this comes through as you read her journey and suggestions for prayer. There were days when she made me realise that I had not understood my relationship with my heavenly Father and it changed my perspective in my prayers."
"Beni relates a powerful story of her journey as an Intercessor with great joy and sense of wonder at God's hand at work in peoples lives. A first rate teaching, reflection and powerful witness to forty days (and a life time ) of interceding in the Spirit in Jesus Name... Thank you Lord and thank you Beni for oepning the eyes of my heart to the deeper joy of being an Intercessor with the Lord."
Some images just breathe out a promise freedom and liberation. The cover for Beni Johnson and Sheri Silk’s ‘What if…’ just does that. Against a dark background the bright, almost golden image bursts across the book's cover in an explosion of freedom and joy. You can feel your heart lift just to look at it, even briefly.
It’s always interesting to look at an effective cover image and discover why it works, and why it works in the context of the book. The contrast of the bright image against the dark background is the first thing that gets noticed and attracts the eye. Indeed, the eye is drawn into the golden nebula of what, on closer inspection, is a cloud of dispersing dandelion ‘parachute’ seeds. We’ve all done it. We’ve all picked up a seed head and blown the small seeds free; trying to free them all in just one breath. To the left of the golden haze is the ‘un-blown’ seed head with its parachutes bound and still. While they stay there, they’re not free to spread and grow and won’t fulfil their primary purpose – to carry new life far and wide.
The message is clear. The seed head to the left is packed with potential but not achieving its purpose. To the right, the liberated seeds are heading out to grow into new dandelions – just like the one that made them, spreading new life and golden flowers to the joy of nature lovers and the despair of gardeners everywhere. The seeds' potential has been turned to reality, and the cycle of new life continues.
In the centre of the shining cloud of fresh new life, a young woman leaps with all the joy of life. Her hair is free, her arms and feet bare and her face turned sunwards. The arch of her back, the reach of her arms and the flex of her knees all show a release of energy. Even her fingers are spread in the enjoyment of being fully aware of her own self; who she is and what she can do. Her youth, vitality, optimism and sheer joy of being is something we all recognise and aspire to.
The cover promises a fulfilment of potential we all long to realise, while the book’s title, ‘What If…’ holds up the image as a real possibility, though clearly in a spiritual sense. The book’s publishers know we can all read this image and that it will have an impact on us. We can read the symbols and we yearn for the implicit, life changing, spiritual experience.
Ultimately, this is a ‘how to’ book; how to change yourself from the potential depicted on the left of the image to the empowered spiritual reality on the right. But as with all ‘how to’ books, the transformation is up to you. Until then, it’s just a hope, an ambition – a dream of what might happen if you let God release the potential of your spiritual dandelion. The book can only show you the difference and ask you the question, ‘What if you joined your dreams with the most amazing God?’ – Les Ellison
Beni and Bill Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church, Redding, California. They serve a growing number of churches that have partnered with Bethel for the purpose of spiritual revival. This apostolic network has crossed denominational lines by building relationships that enable church leaders to walk in both purity and power.
Beni has a call to intercession as an integral part of the Bethel Church mission. She is in charge of the Bethel's Prayer House ministry teams and its intercessors, bringing her insight into strategies for prayer and her involvement in prayer networks.
Beni's heart is to help people begin to bring joy through intercession. She believes that being an intercessor is capturing the heartbeat of heaven and declaring or praying that into your world. It is true agreement with heaven.
In Beni Johnson’s book, ‘The Happy Intercessor’ Beni takes you into the Father's heart to be overwhelmed by his presence and fullness of joy. From this place she helps you see things from God’s perspective and understand the world in which we are compelled to intercede. Praying and speaking with fresh insight, Beni helps you to see that we no longer have to pray from a place of defence. Instead we can tale the initiative, speaking our petitions and most important our declarations of faith, with authority and in anticipation of the breakthrough to come.
