As I travel the nation teaching spiritual warfare principles, one truth becomes painfully clear: the body of Christ, at large, lacks discernment. The reality is that many believers have simply not been activated or trained to discern spirits. Yet discernment is a vital gift in this hour as false prophets, false teachers, and even false christs are rising around the world with smooth sayings, rhymes, and riddles.
Discerning of spirits is one of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit Paul lists in 1 Corinthians 12:7–11. It is the Holy Spirit-inspired ability to distinguish between the operations of the Holy Spirit, a demon spirit, and the human spirit. Discerning of spirits is especially helpful in prophecy, where we need to test the spirits to see if they are of God (1 John 4:1). It’s also vital in spiritual warfare so that we accurately determine what we’re battling instead of just beating the air through guessing games (1 Corinthians 9:26).
James Goll’s latest book, The Discerner, equips the body in discernment. Given the goings-on in the world and in the church, this book is right on time. Readers will understand, with clarity, how to press into the gift of discernment in its many manifestations, as well as cultivate biblical discernment to test the spirits. I thank God that James wrote this practical book. It is truly for such a time as this.

It would be difficult to imagine a time in which discernment was more important than now. James Goll has been an observer of, participant in, or leader of almost every important wave of the Holy Spirit in ministry for forty years and is perfectly suited to teach the church how to navigate the various competing moral, spiritual, and political paradigms in this modern world. His new book, The Discerner, is full of rich insight and allows us to benefit from all that experience as he has watched and interacted with leaders, churches, denominations, and movements. As you meditate on this book, you will gain a greater understanding of the forces that affect your life and how to intelligently maintain your walk with God. Read, learn, and grow up in Christ.

Dr. James Goll is one of God’s chosen and anointed vessels to identify prophets and to grow the prophetic gifts and abilities within the body of Christ. He has skillfully taught and mentored on various aspects of prophetic revelation over the years, and now he introduces a very important component: The Discerner. There is very little written about this subject, and yet it is vital for us to understand. Many readers will find themselves defined as “discerners” when they read this book. As always, Dr. James Goll has penned a remarkable work that will continue to teach and train others for generations to come. Well done!

James is such an immense treasure trove of wisdom and revelation on everything to do with spiritual seeing and discerning. No matter what level of discernment you presently have, this amazing book will provide an upgrade to the next level. The chapters on your spiritual senses are priceless. It is all connected to growing in intimacy with God—and that will be the fruit of your reading this wonderful book.
One of the greatest gifts God has given to His people is the gift of discernment. How we need wise, compassionate discernment in these last days! In The Discerner, James Goll lays out before us a clear and concise teaching on having a heart to discern the works of God and the deeds of the enemy. I’ve not read a better book for preparing us for the days to come. The ones who discern the ways of God will be the ones to lead us into the coming glory. Every pastor, leader, intercessor, and worshipper must read this book. Every believer will be built up and given tools to be a valuable discerner in the days ahead. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend. They will thank you for it!

This was a well written book that provided other perspectives to assist me with teaching. The author knows the subject and did a fine job of imparting the knowledge and experiences of his life path.
