The Four Divisions of Demonic Powers

“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, emphasis mine). We can see from this scripture four classes, or divisions, of demonic powers: (1) Principalities, (2) Powers, (3) RulersContinue reading “The Four Divisions of Demonic Powers”

Be Careful With Your Life

(NKJV) “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces” (Matthew 7:6) What does all that mean? I like dogs, and that sounds derogatory. Is it? No. “Do not give what is holy to theContinue reading “Be Careful With Your Life”

The Nephilim And The Rephaim

Why are we hearing so much about giants in the church these days? I’m suspicious. I smell a doctrinal trap. (NKJV) “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33). Confusion introduces false teachings in the Church and causes division and strifeContinue reading “The Nephilim And The Rephaim”

Ears To Hear and Eyes to See

(NKJV) “The Holy Spirit spoke rightly through Isaiah the prophet to our fathers, “saying, ‘Go to this people and say:“Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand;And seeing you will see, and not perceive;For the hearts of this people have grown dull.Their ears are hard of hearing,And their eyes they have closed,Lest they should seeContinue reading “Ears To Hear and Eyes to See”

Are Warriors Important In God’s Plan?

(ESV) “‘Now rise up and go over the brook Zered.’ So we went over the brook Zered. And the time from our leaving Kadesh-barnea until we crossed the brook Zered was thirty-eight years, until the entire generation, that is, the men of war, had perished from the camp, as the LORD had sworn to them.Continue reading “Are Warriors Important In God’s Plan?”

What Is God’s Mission?

What is God’s mission? What is His vision? Why does He tolerate the evil in the world? Did He know what would happen when He created the Devil? Adam? Did He know that death, sickness, brutality, deception, and tyranny would occur? Of course He did! So why did He choose to go down this road?Continue reading “What Is God’s Mission?”

The Perfect Storm

(ESV) “In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel saw a dream and visions of his head as he lay in his bed. Then he wrote down the dream and told the sum of the matter. Daniel declared, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven wereContinue reading “The Perfect Storm”

Concerning Spiritual: (17) In Part

“Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.When IContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (17) In Part”

Concerning Spiritual: (16)

We’ve come a ways with this study on “Concerning Spiritual.” And I’ll continue it through 1 Corinthians chapter fourteen. Why? Because so much of this has been lost in the church. Jesus restored the knowledge of the gifts of the Spirit to the church, but the church has largely turned a blind eye. In theseContinue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (16)”
