Deliverance From Evil Spirits is Much More Relevant Than you Think

Deliverance From Evil Spirits is Much More Relevant Than you Think

It is one thing to read the many accounts of deliverance from evil spirits in the New Testament. It is quite another thing to realize that these stories are relevant to our lives today. One of the false notions about deliverance from evil spirits is that the topic is not very pertinent to the average believer. Christians will readily acknowledge the existence of the the devil and demons because of the clear scriptural accounts. But the...

How to Incorporate Deliverance into the Life of Your Church

How to Incorporate Deliverance into the Life of Your Church

When reading the New Testament, it becomes quite clear that deliverance from evil spirits was a normal part of the ministry of Jesus and was carried on by the early church. Yet, it is often avoided, ignored, or seen only as a fringe ministry in much of the modern western church. If we are going to make deliverance normal again, we will have to remove the confusion, fear, and stigma from this topic. That is part of the reason why I wrote...

We Don’t Need to be Afraid of Evil Spirits!

We Don’t Need to be Afraid of Evil Spirits!

When people consider the topic of evil spirits and deliverance, there are a variety of responses. For some, the thought of demons is too daunting and fearful to even think about. I mean, can’t we just focus on Jesus? Why do we even need to bring up dark topics like deliverance from evil spirits? One of the reasons that I wrote Keys for Deliverance is to remove the fear associated with this topic. It would be nice to be able to ignore...

Sermon Series: Let My Daughters Go!

Sermon Series: Let My Daughters Go!

I recently finished a sermons series at Threshold Church called Let my Daughters Go! The messages focused on valuing and empowering women in the kingdom of God, and I believe that this is a big topic on the heart of God right now. God’s design from the beginning of creation was male and female; both created in the image of God, both blessed by God, and both given dominion over the earth (see Genesis 1:26-28). The Fall of mankind...

Are Evil Spirits Behind Suicide and Self-Destructive Behavior?

Are Evil Spirits Behind Suicide and Self-Destructive Behavior?

A young lady recently told me her testimony of deliverance from demonic influence. She had suffered from depression and tormenting suicidal thoughts for several years. During a Sunday morning service, I was praying a prayer for deliverance over the congregation. When I commanded the spirit of oppression to come out, she physically felt something leave her. This happened about a year ago, and she has not had depression or suicidal thoughts...

Being Moved with God’s Heart of Compassion

When we minister to others, it is so important to be moved with God’s heart of compassion. Whether it is sharing the gospel, praying for healing, casting out evil spirits, or meeting needs, we must allow the Lord’s love to fill our hearts for the people to whom we minister. Ministry is not just about having good answers, saying the right words, or praying the right prayers. First and foremost, it is about having the heart of...

Sermon: The Power of a Father

Sermon: The Power of a Father

Last year on Father’s Day, I preached a message on the power of a father. As Benjamin was being born to the patriarch Jacob, his dying mother attempted to give him the name Ben-Oni (meaning “Son of My Sorrow”). But Jacob insisted on calling him Benjamin (meaning “Son of my Right Hand”). As his father, Jacob established him in his identity, not allowing him to be marked with a negative name that was not consistent with his...

How Preconceived Beliefs Impact our Spiritual Discernment

How Preconceived Beliefs Impact our Spiritual Discernment

Sometimes we tend to think that when God speaks, moves, or acts, it will be completely obvious that it was God who acted. But in many cases, the Bible paints a dramatically different picture. I was recently drawn to study John 12:27-29, where Jesus is preparing to go to the cross: “Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father, glorify Your name.”...

Healthy and effective leadership requires a wide variety of character traits and skills. We must first have a heart-posture of serving the ones we lead. We must have the right foundations in place: intimacy with God, security in our identity in Christ, and integrity of heart and behavior. Then, we can grow in the gifts and skills required to lead. While many are quick to recognize the danger of domineering and controlling leadership styles,...
