Interview on WJTL: Keys for Deliverance

This morning I had the opportunity to be on the morning show of the local Christian radio station WJTL. I had a few minutes to share about my new book Keys for Deliverance. The topic of deliverance from evil spirits is often avoided in the modern church, but for Jesus and the early church it was normal. We must take a closer look at what the Bible teaches us about this important subject. I am excited to have had the opportunity to share about this topic and help spread the word about the book! You can listen to the brief interview by clicking...

The Role of Angels in the Ministry of Deliverance

The Role of Angels in the Ministry of Deliverance

The spiritual realm is real, and the reality of angels and demons is a topic that is found throughout the Bible. The following is an excerpt from my new book Keys For Deliverance, on the role that angels play in deliverance ministry: While the topic of this book is on demons and deliverance from their influence, let’s not forget that the spiritual realm is not relegated to darkness only. God has hosts of angels that are sent into the world to do His work, fulfill His commands, and minister to His people. In fact, the writer of Hebrews says...

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 thought of casting out a demon or needing to be delivered from one seems far-fetched or extreme. However, the...

3 Ways to Maximize the Gift of Tongues in Your Prayer Life

3 Ways to Maximize the Gift of Tongues in Your Prayer Life

I have been praying in tongues for about fifteen years. But the past few years especially, the Lord has been highlighting the importance of this valuable gift in a greater way. If you already have this gift, I encourage you to use it often. If you’re a believer and you have not received the gift of tongues, I encourage you to pray and seek God to receive it. There are various purposes for the gift of tongues, and one of them is praying in the context of personal devotion. The apostle Paul clearly describes this in 1 Corinthians 14:18-19:...

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 Keys for Deliverance. We cannot afford to avoid this topic any longer, and we must have clear, biblical, and...

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 the kingdom of darkness altogether, but we do not have that luxury. Our ignorance in this area has...

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 brought about sin and the curse, and this also caused a breakdown between male and female. Throughout history,...

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 since. Praise the Lord! The Spiritual Side of the Equation There is much talk about suicide prevention and...

Being Moved with God’s Heart of Compassion

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 God. As I study the life and ministry of Jesus, I am struck not only by what He did, but by why He did...

Sermon: Deliverance From Evil Spirits

We recently had a special deliverance service at Threshold Church. During this service, I preached a message on deliverance from evil spirits and then we flowed into a corporate ministry time. Many people were set free from demonic influence during this time! The topic of deliverance is much more relevant than many people realize. There is a great need for clear, biblical teaching and healthy practice of the ministry of deliverance. When we clear away the confusion and fear, the way is paved for many people to be set free. In this sermon, I...

5 Truths About Demonic Influence

With the recent release of my new book, Keys for Deliverance, I am focusing a lot of my articles on the topic of deliverance from evil spirits. This is a subject that we must remove the confusion and fear from, so that it can become normal in the church again. Deliverance is much more relevant than many people realize. Here is a small sampling of issues I have seen people set free from when they were delivered from evil spirits: Depression and other mental oppression; suicidal thoughts; fear and anxiety issues; pornography, lust,...

Making Deliverance Normal Again

The topic of deliverance from evil spirits causes a wide variety of responses. Some people would rather not even think about it, deeming it to be too dark, daunting, or depressing. Some are fearful of the subject and avoid it altogether, while others are overly fascinated by it. Many people are entirely skeptical of any such talk, considering the concept of evil spirits to be superstitious, outdated, or simply irrelevant to their lives. As the church, it is time to take an honest look at what the Bible teaches us about demons and deliverance...

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 destiny (see Genesis 35:16-18). In the same way, we can sometimes be labeled with hurtful or negative things...
