By John Miltenberger 10/25/2017 “Everyone’s a winner before the contest begins.” Sometimes I shudder inwardly when we sing warfare songs in church. While we loudly, dare I say proudly, proclaim to the heavens what mighty warriors we are, the truth is we are baiting a bear we perhaps have never met. Let me say right here that while I do not fear Satan, I respect him, and I respect him because fighting him by myself …

By John Miltenberger 9/8/2017 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. [1 John 3:8; NKJV] The spiritual warfare that has been assailing us all, expresses itself in a punch/counter-punch scenario that will go on until the end of the current age. The infusion of political correctness into our civil …

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 …

By Greg Laurie For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. —Ephesians 6:12 Peter couldn’t take it anymore. He had watched His Lord’s anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane. He had watched the group of soldiers come to arrest Him. So he took out his sword, took a swing, and removed …

Spiritually Lethargic

A lack of energy and enthusiasm considered lethargy. It is a state of being in which one is drowsy. Some would describe a lethargic person as lazy or slothful. The lack of enthusiasm to pursue spiritual matters is a symptom of spiritual lethargy and the cause of spiritual immaturity and stunted growth. Lethargy is an attitude and a dangerous one at that. The Bible warns the devil is a roaring lion looking for someone to …

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 …

Most of us have had an occasion where an unexpected trial or obstacle has knocked us flat, interrupting everyday plans and routines.

God values honest communication. But once we have vented our frustration, fear, anger, and confusion over the obstacle, we must pause …
