This part of the spiritual armor is good news for us but very bad news for Satan and his domain.
Let’s begin today with a review. Paul is in prison chained to a guard 24 hours a day- seven days a week. As he is observing the soldiers uniform, the Holy Spirit begins to speak to him about spiritual armor. He takes note of the belt around the soldier’s waist. He notices that ...read more

In spiritual warfare there are no rules, no rounds, no countouts, no one to stop the fight. Whoever fights the hardest, the meanest, and lasts the longest will win. There is no draw. You either win the battle or lose the battle.
This week I caught a glimpse of the MMA. Has anyone seen these matches? They are brutal. They take place in a cage where two opponents fight three to five rounds. Every round is 5 minutes in duration with one-minute rest period in-between rounds. Non-title matches must not exceed three rounds. ...read more

There are a lot of debates about the origin of evil but is it possible that God is responsible? A rather difficult subject attempted to be explained.
I want to tell you the story of Farmer Joe who had an accident. When the accident first took place, Farmer Joe decided not to sue the trucking company responsible for the accident. Later he reconsidered. In court, the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe. "Didn’t ...read more

Spiritual warfare is confined to within us. Satan is defeated and powerless unless we chose to give him his power back. This sermon looks at 5 ways we can do that.
Let me begin today with a reminder of what Sun Tzu wrote in his book “The Art of War.” “It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; ...read more

Satan often sends unexpected storms into our lives but Jesus counters with a commanding word of peace.
A wife woke up one morning and said, “Honey, I just had a dream that you bought me a new gold necklace. What do you think it means?” “I don’t know, but Valentine’s Day is coming soon. Tuesday, you’ll know,” He replied. A few nights later, she again woke ...read more

Often our spiritual battles are fought behind bars made of human reasoning. This sermon discusses breaking through that stronghold and destroying the debates of Satan.
A new soldier was on sentry duty at the main gate. Security levels were high. His orders were very clear. No car was to enter unless it had a special sticker on the windshield. A big Army car came up with a general seated in the back. The sentry said, "Halt, who goes there?" The driver, a ...read more

Like Paul, we are all slaves to our sins. But Jesus bought us from the slave market to set us free. So why do we continue in bondage. This sermon attempts to answer that question.
Come with me in a time machine this morning. We will travel back to Rome circa 60 AD. We find ourselves at the Graecostadium, the slave market. As we wander around, we see men, women, and children standing on revolving blocks. Immediately we observe the fact that these people are nude, totally ...read more

Satan seeks a road into our minds to decieve us and destroy us. This sermon deals with blocking that road.
It was an uneventful day. It had been 50 days since Passover. The streets of Jerusalem were busy with people rushing around preparing for yet another festival, all except for a few who were gathered in an upper room at the Temple. They were called people of The Way because they had followed a man ...read more

Satan wants to convince us our problems are greater than they are. However, like David, we need to rush Satan and not cower.
. I want to start this morning on a light note. Translations from English to a native tongue can be especially difficult. Here are a few examples. Sign in a Tokyo hotel: Is forbitten to steal hotel toweles please. If you are not person to do such thing is please not to read this ...read more
