John Bevere

John Bevere and his wife, Lisa, are ministers, best-selling authors, and the founders of Messenger International. Over the last twenty years, his book The Bait of Satan has sold millions of copies, helping countless people get free from the deadly snare of offense. But before any of this, John had to walk through his own story of learning forgiveness and allowing God to heal deep wounds from his past.

In this course, John uses Scripture, personal experiences, and practical steps to help you escape one of the enemy’s greatest traps.

Don’t allow yesterday’s pain to steal tomorrow’s joy.

We all want to experience the life God has for us—so why is it so few of us actually do? In a word, offense. Jesus said it is impossible for offenses not to come. Nearly every day we are mistreated by others—even those closest to us. Left unaddressed, these wounds from past wrongs will wreak havoc in our lives, stealing our vitality and thwarting our purpose.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Jesus invites us to embrace a new way of living.

Forgiveness is the central theme of the Gospel message. If we want to enjoy the fullness of our life in Christ, we must embrace His example and forgive others.

We know this is a difficult topic to navigate. That’s why we’ve created a course that guides you through the process of identifying, addressing, and releasing life’s pains and disappointments.

Don’t allow yesterday’s pain to steal tomorrow’s joy. God’s ultimate purpose is reconciliation and restoration. He wants you to thrive in your relationships, your marriage, your job, your church, and your world.

Today, join millions of others on the journey toward living free from offense.
