As Lonnie's older brother, I had the opportunity to see up close how Lonnie flowed with the Holy Spirit in a real relationship with the Father and the Son of God. Obedience is better than sacrifice
There is a lot of anointing on this book! I had the privilege of being part of Lonnie’s life and ministry. Neither of us could have imagined all of the wonderful things we would see as God poured Himself out. Lonnie was a good friend, father, and Elijah to me. I’m forever grateful
Sometimes the Lord uses a person knowing that they will be obedient no matter the cost, and He will use them in powerful ways. Such were the likes of King David, Moses, Smith Wigglesworth, William J. Seymour of the Azusa Street Revival, Jonathan Edwards, and the list goes on. Lonnie Frisbee was one of those instruments the Lord used in mighty ways in the late 1960s to the end of the 80s and beyond. I hope that after reading this book, you will be inspired to say “yes” to the Lord when He calls your name for a task––one that He wants you to complete. My friend with Improbable People Ministries says that God uses improbable people for impossible tasks. That’s Lonnie Frisbee. My wife and I knew Lonnie for many years, through triumphs and failures. Through it all, his heart and mind was always stayed upon the love of his God and the work of His Kingdom. Enjoy the book!
Every movement of the Holy Spirit has its strengths and weaknesses. Why? God uses man. The Jesus People Movement changed my life forever. I tasted, experienced, and absorbed an entirely new and different culture to Christianity. Lonnie Frisbee was a forerunner and trailblazer of this amazing movement where Jesus Christ was kept central. I am so grateful for Lonnie’s sacrifice and the wake he helped create with signs and wonders following. Blessings to all who read this series of books and become trailblazers as well.
Reading through this second book on Lonnie's life, I am more taken than ever with the incredible anointing on his ministry and the simplicity, sincerity, and even rawness of his story. I have loved learning about God’s work in and through this bold and courageous ambassador of His Kingdom. This story of God's ceaseless favor on his life in spite of Lonnie's pain and rejection is such a paradox. It is also a great invitation that God is extending to us. Lonnie's life is a testimony of God's faithfulness to use “whosoever will….”
Lonnie Frisbee was a Holy Spirit man who understood the heart and nature of God and one of the most amazing prophetic and apostolic revivalists of our day and age. He carried an anointing of “electric power” that cross-pollinated to many streams and networks of churches, impacting countless individuals in America and the nations. I was privileged to meet and know Lonnie for a brief period of time in my life as a young adult, but what he imparted to me was life-changing! I accredit much of what I know and understand in power gifts of miracles and healing to my time of impartation with this 20th century legend. Lonnie truly was a man after God's own heart!
I was asked to write a short endorsement for this book about Lonnie Frisbee. I feel like I could write two chapters. Lonnie was one of the most anointed, the most controversial, and the most conflicted people and had the most radical stories of the Jesus Movement and beyond. I asked him one time why we didn’t hang out. He said, ”Positive poles repel one another. The Lord probably wants to give you a ministry,” and just walked away. What do you say to that? Well, par for the course. My wife Donna and I were both at church on Mother’s Day in 1980 when Lonnie shared. The church was very ripe for revival––God used Lonnie Frisbee as the match that ignited a firestorm that went around the world. Thousands came to know Jesus as Savior, and thousands were also introduced to the gifts of the Holy Spirit! Sometimes we don’t know what we have until it’s gone. Rest in peace, Lonnie. God knows you deserve it.
"Lonnie...was always reminding us of the need to shine the light of Christ into the dark places of the earth."
We were blessed to be friends with and mentored by that radical evangelist and missionary Lonnie Frisbee, who was used by God to bring great impartation to our lives. Lonnie’s impact directly influenced our ministry, and we are still preaching in many different and often dangerous parts of the world. When we recently ministered in St. Denis, Paris, France, which has 160 mosques in that one area of the city alone, we remembered Lonnie and how he was always reminding us of the need to shine the light of Christ into the dark places of the earth. God lit that place and the people “Frisbee style,” with Holy Ghost fire to evangelize the region!
