Tactics

Satan does not have the power to confront God and win. Rather, he needs to do his dirty work with espionage. He wants to corrupt and disrupt the plans and work of God. So, the third key to victory is to guard against the Devil’s ways.

Sources of Illness

All illness results from sin, but not all illness is because of sin, and certainly not all illness is sin. Part of the context for understanding divine healing is to recognize that we have an enemy who is seeking to disrupt, corrupt, and destroy God’s purposes. We can’t attribute everything to the Devil, but we can’t discount his role either. Just as we must reject sin we must reject the Devil as well. Through Jesus we have authority over the Devil and his works.

Very Good, But Not God

Once we know who we are, we need to know where we are and how we answer that question determines a lot about how we live. The world we live in is neither junk nor divine, but good because it is made by the same God who made us in his image. That means our relationship between the creation and God is full of purpose!

We Are Loved Beyond Measure

Who Are We? It’s an essential question that everyone asks because we have a sense that we need a purpose — we need value. Christianity has an answer to this fundamental human question: we are loved by God.

Appearances Can Be Deceiving

Finally! they’re going to get what’s coming to them. Or, are they? How can there be both justice and mercy? And, what does that mean for us as the people of God?

Down But Not Out

There will be times when we’re down, but that doesn’t mean we’re out. God will pick us up again and set us on our feet. The key is to hang on and let him do his thing — it’s all going to be alright!
