Bought this for my Kindle... Looks good. I was a teen in the late 60s and a young mother in the 70s. Altho I grew up loving the Lord and never had a "wild time," I was fascinated by the "Jesus people." God did some mighty things through them!
An excellent read about an extrodinary life!
May 1970. Lonnie led this young Marine to a lasting relationship with Christ and baptized me at Corona Del Mar. That began a lasting friendship lasting over 20 years. I knew of his struggles and failings. But Christ was the core of our friendship. Though we saw each other rarely, when we reunited our fellowship was as if we'd seen each other just yesterday. Miss him still.
Lonnie touched my life over gees 25 years ago. One of the strongest and powerful evangelist! Like all of us, he had some demons to tackle. Now I firmly believe he's in the company of our Master and Lord Jesus! See ya soon or whenever we meet in the sky! Thanks for sharing. Love eternally, Rick
Ordered this book a couple of weeks ago. Got it. Killed it.. WONDERFUL BOOK--LOVED IT!
Lonnie led me to the Lord in 1971. I was 14. When he prayed I felt the Spirit move in the room like a gentle wind. I encountered a supernatural God. I have never been able to be satisfied with anything less, all these years later.
I just finished the book, man!....awesome! How long do I have to wait to get "The Great Commission"? Totally inspiring book, I broke down several times as I read it. In fact it is funny, while reading about the clubfoot, a gentleman came into our store telling us about his bird having a clubbed foot. Also yesterday I had an encounter with a man that that Lonnie prayed for. I know of a few people personally that got saved through his ministry. I have listened to their testimony, mind blowing. Anyway, praise Jesus!
My wife grew up under Lonnie in a church in Santa Cruz he was associated with called Mission Christian Fellowship. She was wreaked by Holy Spirit.
....God foreknew Lonnie all that would happen in his life and predestined him to glory in spite of sin. God gets more credit for the glory he did in this vessel than any credit we should want to take for anything. Let God have all the glory and all the credit, Lonnie wouldn't have had it any other way!!!
Favorite Story: ...So much water under the bridge, and so so much of Lonnie Frisbee there, like another life. I was what is called now, 'radically saved,' in San Diego. As a very new believer I stumbled here and there between fellowships, that were then in people's houses mostly, and every one including me, had very long hair. The first Maranatha outreach concert was in San Diego. I had been to a strange church and was approached by their people at the concert telling me, " you are meant to go to our church." I was confused and afraid. A girl I talked to took me to talk to Lonnie about it. As I walked up to all these really tall men, there was a shorter man in the middle of them. He turned to me, and without any hesitation or even an introduction he said, ' these men are not of God. They have a spirit of divination. Stay away from them.' Like it was said of Jesus, He had so much power and authority! It startled me.When he prayed for me everything turned white, bright white. No one had told him why I was there. I subsequently moved to Costa Mesa and I can tell you, I never before or since met anyone like Lonnie. We all loved him so deeply because he loved Jesus, and was so loved by God. Lonnie's physical father had huge problems. Lonnie found the father he was longing for in God, the Father. Most people never understood that.
I'm reading it right now. Can't put it down. I feel as if I knew him. I wish I did.
...I've read the book twice, the first time in one day..lol, it was sooo good! When will book 2 be out? I'm really looking forward to it! Blessings!!"
I LOVED this book!! It felt like Lonnie was right in the room talking to me. I so miss his encouragement. He was a tremendous support during the 80s Buena Park Ministry. Can't wait to see him again! :) <3
Loved the book, cant wait for the second book. There is a reason why so much interest in this man now and not twenty years ago. I think we have more compassion and less judgement now and perhaps even though Lonnie has gone to Glory, he is still influencing the growth of the church and giving people hunger for the Holy Spirit. Can't wait to meet him in heaven someday!
I read the excerpts (on the website) and then listened to Lonnie speaking! It is wonderful. I can't wait to read the book!
I never met Lonnie but I did have a dream a couple years ago. A friend and I were walking along this railroad track in the dark. And there stood Lonnie all lit up like a guiding post... He was pointing his index finger toward a huge white cross ahead of me. It was glowing. The interpretation I got at the time is there is another major Jesus people revolution just ahead and it is very important to stay on track. This train is bound for glory this train.
I believe GLORYING IN THE CROSS and all that it means in simplicity is a key to opening that portal... Thanks for keeping his memory alive. He was a significant signpost not only of a historical move in recent history but what the grace of God will do in anyone's life... no matter how broken. I believe a double portion of Lonnie's mantle is ready to be taken up... and I have my sights set on the same community he was drawn from. God is not done with the neo hippy jam movement that is ripening in the harvest fields right now... I can tell you that much
Read this book, it's awesome...
