Contending Altars of Worship

Just like in the times of Elijah and Jezebel, today we are contending for the altars of worship. As you may be aware, in the recent Grammy awards ceremony there was a performance that literally portrayed Satanic worship. In 1 Kings 18:21, Elijah is speaking to the people in his famous showdown with Ahab, Jezebel, and the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel. He says, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him and if Baal, then follow him.” Then the text notes an interesting observation, “But the people answered him not [...]

Deliverance Made Easy

Believe it or not, deliverance can be easy! Achieving deliverance from darkness can definitely be a battle, but by grace complete victory belongs to you, provided that you are prepared, well-clothed and well-armed with God’s every provision (see Ephesians 6:11-18). In fact, most of your success in battle lies in the preparation. The actual engagement of deliverance does not have to be messy or difficult at all. (Obviously, it is important not to take the enemy lightly or flippantly. For a much more thorough handling of this subject, see my Deliverance from Darkness Curriculum Kit.) The Gospel of Deliverance [...]

3 Satanic Traps to Avoid

He rules over fallen angels and demonic spirits and incites them to seek to establish footholds in our minds and hearts. Here are 3 common Satanic traps we need to both discern and avoid. 1. Disguises and Masquerade Parties Falseness and deceit are part of the fallen human condition. Scripture warns us against status-seeking people within the church who claim to be more anointed and righteous than they really are, who masquerade as men and women of strength and integrity but who are [...]

7 Ways to Shorten Your Seasons of Struggle

By |2018-03-29T13:56:36-05:00March 29th, 2018|Recent Articles|0 Comments

Battle is part of the Christian life. There is a real enemy and you were born into a war. So seasons of struggle are a given. But can you shorten your seasons of struggle? I believe you can, and I believe that the Bible is filled with good advice toward this end. You do not need to prolong the agony. You can arise and conquer. One of the enemy's ploys is to make you roll over into a passive position. When that happens, you are no longer actively engaged and the devil can roll over you. It is important to [...]

Satan Fights Dirty: How You Can Be Ready

You have to run over the devil before he runs over you. You are standing on a battlefield (perhaps a different one than you were last year at this time). You may be standing in the middle of an army or you may be standing all alone. Are you just going to stand there, waiting to see what will happen? Or are you going to do something that will allow you to get and keep the upper hand? King David gave us a psalm that we should graft onto ourselves so that we can be true overcomers: “I pursued [...]
