"The general has done it again! Cindy Jacobs was born to be a pioneer, a forerunner, and to lead the way so that other believers could cross over into the fullness of their destiny. . . . Two things I love most about The Essential Guide to the Prophetic are the application section at the end of each chapter and how Cindy always insists on developing character to carry the gift. The only thing I can add to this essential prophetic manual is a loud AMEN! Well done, good, and faithful steward. The next generation will be richly blessed!"

James W. Goll, founder, God Encounters Ministries and GOLL Ideations

The word of the Lord is what sets people free. When I think of a seasoned prophet, I think of Cindy Jacobs. And through all the fires of difficulty she has experienced in her lifetime, she stands strong, with an absolute confidence in the goodness of God. From that place of assurance, she gives us a profoundly practical guide to the prophetic, which is perfectly fit for every believer. Please prayerfully devour this book."

"Cindy Jacobs teaches the proper way of exercising the gift she has used publicly during a renowned ministry career that has spanned decades.

I encourage you to study this book, learn how to exercise your gift, and become an integral part of God's solution to healing our world."

"Never has there been a more crucial time to clearly hear the voice of God. Confusion, chaos, and a cacophony of other voices muddy the modern waters of needed direction. Yet heaven has ordained a fresh clarity and a new discernment to weaponize our witness and solidify our faith.
