Episode 012: John Bevere on Killing Your Kryptonite


On the latest episode of the iDisciple Podcast, iDisciple CEO David Henriksen is joined by one of iDisciple’s incredible Kingdom Partners, John Bevere. John and his wife Lisa lead Messenger International, a ministry that has spent decades spreading the Gospel. Along with leading Messenger International, John travels the globe speaking and sharing the Gospel, and is the writer of multiple books. John is joining us to discuss his latest book, Killing Kryptonite: Destroy What Steals Your Strength, and to share some insights into tapping into the power of the Holy Spirit.

John and Lisa founded Messenger International in 1990, and in almost three decades of ministry have been able to spread the good news of Jesus Christ around the world, and transform millions of lives in the process. The Beveres have a heart to not only see believers know the Word, but to walk in the fullness of its power.

Killing Kryptonite is a challenging read that addresses that very mission, and offers answers to why so many of us are unable to experience the divine strength that was evident among first-century Christians. In the book, John reveals what this kryptonite is for many believers, why it’s compromising our communities, and how to break free from its bondage.

We pray that John’s passion and biblical wisdom will stir you to action in your own life, and that this podcast will help you walk in the fullness of Jesus’ power!
