1. WE NEED TO BELIEVE THE BIBLE IS TRUE IN ALL RESPECTS.

“THIS IS THE WORD OF GOD.
It is supernatural in origin, eternal in duration, inexpressible in value, infinite in scope, regenerative in power, infallible in authority, universal in interest, personal in application,
inspired in totality.

List of Enemies

Evil spirits entice people with sinful temptations. When yielded to, temptation result in corruption and eventual domination by evil powers.

As well as this, we could consider the false gods, philosophies and religious movements with which people are led astray.

As well as this, there are other spirits which work to bring destruction to people’s lives in different ways.

This article seeks to list many of these evil powers. It cannot be exhaustive.

Sin can be divided into three categories: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. (1 John 2:16).

Strategic Intercession

All of us are called to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We are called to pray always and not lose heart (Luke 18:1). Yet God is ALSO interested in the quality and effectiveness of our prayer lives.

Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” The most effective prayers then are those that bring a manifestation of God’s will as revealed in the Scriptures to the situations on earth.

God wants none to perish and be lost.

Demon Influence in Culture

“We know that we are in God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.”
(1 John 5:20)

Keys to Overcoming Sin

A major part of spiritual warfare is resisting the devil’s enticement’s to compromise on God’s principles. We give the powers of darkness a definite advantage when we do anything that actually compromises the intimacy of our fellowship with God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit. Worldliness is anything attitude or occupation that makes your heart just a little colder towards the Lord.

What Jesus did in Spiritual Warfare

God the Father sent Jesus into the world for a reason. The Bible says in 1 John 3:8, “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.” Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. One demon sensed this when he cried out through a man in the synagogue, “Have you come to destroy us?” (Mark 1).

In order to overcome the devil’s works, Jesus needed to overcome severe temptation. This he did firstly in the wilderness at the end of his 40 day fast. He did it by saying, “It is written” and following it up with a quotation from God’s Word.

Knowing God

Knowing God is an amazing thing. I’d like to help you to know Him.

If God has touched your heart through this site and you would like to get serious with God, it could be the beginning of something wonderful. I urge to consider deeply the fact that there is a God. He has revealed Himself in so many ways. His Holy Spirit calls you today. God is awesome, holy, and powerful – yet He loves you deeply. The stories on this site are part of a witness to you that God is real. If you are not really convinced, I urge you to read more from this site first, and maybe even write and ask questions.

Two Versions of the Gospel

In the evangelical/pentecostal churches there are actually two different versions of gospel being presented by people who would claim they take the Word of God as their authority in faith and practice. I want to draw your attention to the fundamental issue in question here, because it has to do with your ETERNAL SALVATION.

Man Saved from Sexual Addiction

This testimony is about my husband and how he got free from sexual addiction. He came from a religious family (controlling). He became addicted to porn and masturbating. His family almost broke us up soon after marriage, and I was so upset all the time, he felt rejected by me. He used it as a comfort, so he went back to the porn and masturbation. He had had a problem with it in the past, but it had been fine up to this point when he felt rejected. Then it got BAD. The more he felt like he’d caused pain in my life, the more he hurt me, the more he turned to sexual sin.
