Satan is the father of all lies and a master illusionist. An illusionist is someone who deceives others by giving a false or misleading impression of reality. Therefore, the devil works tirelessly to convince us God does not mean exactly what He says. Thankfully, Satan’s suggestions can never stand up against the light of God’s Word. “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not …

We Were Like Animals

2/6/2017 I also thought about the human condition–how God proves to people that they are like animals.                     [Ecclesiastes 3:18; NLT] My adventure in prayer last night could be called, “I slept while my spirit meditated.” Several days ago my wife and I had a couple over for supper, and after eating some of the best lasagna I’ve ever put in my mouth, we sat down …

Seriously?

1/6/2017 I’m continually impressed by how serious the Bible is, and what impresses me the most is the disparity between how serious the Bible is, and how un-serious we sometimes allow ourselves to become in our faith. In short, in our churches we quickly grow too familiar with God as an eternal Person, and His Word, as an eternal reality. And as we locally subject ourselves to other believers, we take on their normal, which …

Our creator, the Creator of the Universe, has promised to be our refuge, our strength, and our help. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1 (NKJV) With faith, we remember who is in control.

There are several stories in the Bible where God calls one of His chosen into a place of solitude and seclusion. The apostle Paul, who has one of the greatest conversion stories in the Word of God, was led into the desert for three years. During that time the Holy Spirit instructed him in the ways of God. Saul, later known as Paul, had persecuted Christians with near fanaticism until his conversion along the Damascus …

Should We Rebuke The Devil?

cherylz1961 BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS, BIBLICAL ANSWERS, BREAKING NEWS, FEATURED ARTICLES 0 Comments

Some Christians believe they not only have the authority to rebuke Satan, but that they should be rebuking him right and left. There is no biblical basis for such a belief. Unlike God, Satan is not omnipresent. He can only be in one place at one time. So, when believers find themselves under spiritual attack, it is highly unlikely the devil is personally behind the harassment. Of course he does have a legion of demons …

By Greg Laurie And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. —Philippians 1:6 So, you say you tried Christianity and it didn’t work for you? My reply: Nonsense! Let me ask you these questions: 1. After you were “converted,” did you begin to study and memorize Scripture? Psalm 119:11 (NKJV) says, “Your word have …
