Ben R. Peters



Holy Passion: Desire on Fire

Igniting the Torch of Godly Passion


God is a God of passion and He is looking for a people with passion!


“I can no longer be satisfied with just being ‘good.’ I want to be wasted by His love, lost in His gaze and fired up by the torch in His eyes. I want to be motivated to do things that make no sense to man, but advance His Kingdom in supernatural ways. I want to live in a glory realm that is saturated with His splendor and the creative, miraculous power of His love. I need Him! I want Him! I desire Him—with a passion!”—Ben R. Peters


In this book, Ben Peters discusses the difference between passion and desire, and how to transform desire into passion. He also presents us with a host of holy passion, from the New Testament church, to the historical church, to the contemporary church. He also tells us how to multiply, steward and blend the holy passion God gives us with the passion He has given to rest of His church.














A Manual for Raising the Dead



Raising the dead is nothing new. Elijah, Elisha and Ezekiel did it in the Old Testament. Jesus, Peter and Paul did it in the new. Today, Christians all around the world are doing it. As Paul asked King Agrippa, “Why should it be thought incredible by you that God should raise the dead?” (Acts 26:8). Raising the dead is not for super-Christians, but is in the DNA of every believer.

Ben Peters fully expects to see literal, physical resurrections, as well as spiritual revival, take place before our eyes, through faith in the Living God. This little book will help you discover some of the valuable life-giving principles revealed in Scripture, including:


  • Who is able to raise the dead
  • What you do and don’t need to raise the dead
  • How not to raise the dead
  • The most important key to raising the dead
  • Prophesying life to dry bones
  • Understanding breath, wind and spirit
  • How to minister life to the dead




Prophetic Ministry:
Strategic Key to the Harvest


The harvest is ready. Are you ready to gather it in?

Jesus said that the harvest is ripe, and He has chosen His church to bring it in. Toward that end, He has given us a very powerful tool: prophetic ministry. It is a ministry that shows God’s love and care to those who do not yet know the Lord Jesus Christ by revealing His plans and purposes for them.

Ben Peters knows from first-hand experience the value and effectiveness of prophetic ministry as an evangelistic tool. Along with his wife Brenda, he has been doing prophetic ministry since 1999 and has seen countless salvations, healings and miracles as a result.

In this timely book you will learn about:


  • How prophetic ministry builds up, encourages and activates believers for harvest evangelism.

  • How prophetic ministry prepares the way for signs and wonders, leading to salvation for many.

  • How to hear prophetic words from God with greater clarity.

  • How prophetic ministry can help you overcome the fear of evangelism.

  • How to prepare for effective prophetic ministry.

  • How to multiply prophetic ministry and increase the harvest by developing mentoring relationships.

This book contains nuggets of truth that are not only fascinating but, vital for the day in which we live. It shows you the Biblical pattern for New Testament Evangelism—from John the Baptist to the Apostles. As one who has seen the transforming power of Jesus through prophetic ministry for many years, Ben Peters knows just how valuable a tool God gave us for the harvest. You will be challenged to shift your paradigm radically, when it comes to both prophetic ministry and the harvest.

God's Favorite Number:

  • Why is unity so important to Jesus and His Father?

  • What are the rewards for unity?

  • How do we build unity?

He paints for us a prophetic picture of what that glorious unity looks like, and lays out fresh insights and practical helps on how we can get there. What a joy to discover that the Harvest is not only gathered in but gathered together!"—Jeff Doles


Catching Up to the Third World:

Seven Indispensable Keys to EXPLOSIVE Revival in the Western Church


Why don’t we see miracles and revival here like they do in other countries?

This is one of the most common questions asked by Christians in the West. Finally, here are some real answers to that question, along with practical solutions to the problem. Catching Up to the Third World reveals how God is provoking the Western Church to godly jealousy, to produce a powerful revival in the “First World” nations, so that the resources of the West can be most effectively utilized in the coming global harvest.

Many biblical principles are revealed in this easy-to-read manual, including:

  • Confessing the sins of our spiritual fathers

  • Pursuing biblical unity and divine encounters

  • Prophetically encouraging and activating every member of the body of Christ to their destiny and function

This book highlights seven major keys that could change the western church forever: the Hannah Key, the Leviticus Key, the Ezekiel Key, the Isaiah Key, the Parable Key, the Kingdom Key—and the Greatest Key of all!


"In Catching Up to the Third World, Ben Peters helps us understand what keeps us from experiencing the kinds of signs and wonders that are being seen in the “underdeveloped” nations of the world. Identifying sources of pride and barrenness, he then shows us the way to repentance—to correct our motivations, enter into the heart of God, and prepare us to receive what God longs to do in our region of the world."—Jeff Doles



Signs and Wonders

To Seek or Not to Seek


Signs and Wonders–To Seek or Not to Seek clearly answers the controversial question that it asks. The conclusions of this thorough and fascinating investigation of the faith-making power of the miraculous will be difficult to refute.


At the same time, the author endeavors to present the information in a very non-offensive manner, with the goal of bringing the whole body of Christ into greater unity rather than division. Readers on both sides of the "signs and wonders" debate will learn to listen to each other and learn more about God's chosen ways to bring people to faith in Him.


Signs and Wonders takes a thorough look at every case of conversion recorded in Scripture. It also looks at church history from the early church fathers until today. It looks at what is happening today and around the world and how sings and wonders are being used to bring people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.



Folding Five Ministries into One Powerful Team

Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers are still much needed today, until we all come to "the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ." Folding Five Ministries Into One Powerful Team, by Ben Peters, shows how we can begin to recover and benefit from all these ministries at the congregational level and enhance the balance and maturity of the Church.
