True peace is the fruit of being confident in God’s love; it is born of the revelation that, regardless of the battle, "Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4).

Words are powerful weapons in this war. They have...

Spiritual oppression is like microbial contamination. Elisha and Gehazi had a glimpse into the invisible war between God and Satan. We know from the Bible that Satan and his demons were once exalted, now fallen. They are powerful but limited, active but defeated. Be encouraged of God's power, aware of Satan's schemes and prepared to fight spiritual battles. Sermon one from...

Scripture: Revelation 3:12-13
Can you believe that your thinking can dynamically impact your physical, spiritual and emotional health? As a Christian neuroscientist, this information is transformational. We cannot afford not to ”bring all thoughts into captivity to Christ Jesus (2nd Corinthians 10:5)! Proverbs 23:7:"What man thinks is what he really is." The above statistics concerning the impact of...

The number of very large churches continues to increase, as our graphic dramatically illustrates. And within that group, the biggest churches continue to get bigger. In the past I’ve written about everything from sanctuary sizes (very few new ones over 5,000) to the first megachurch (start with Pentecost when “about 3,000” were converted, per Acts 2:41) to global megachurches...

You can beat temptation. Satan's tests us to meet our needs in an illegitimate way, to use power for personal gain, and to de-throne the Lord of our lives. From Eve to Christ we see Satan's battle plan. He is a defeated foe. Preached at Fellowship Church. From www.creativepastors.com. Used by permission.

Topic: Spiritual Warfare
What motivated the early church to press on under threat of rejection, persecution, and death? It’s the same thing we need to overcome our fear of sharing the gospel with our neighbors—gospel courage. I have a dear friend who has a beautiful wife, one very precocious little girl, and one little boy who’s the mellowest kid I’ve ever seen in my life. My friend loves his...
