Satan Has No Power, Only the Ability to Deceive!

Christian Life Issues
Once, many years ago, when I was preaching, the Lord spoke to me and said, "Satan doesn't have any power over you; the only thing he has is ability, and that is the ability to deceive." There are a lot of people that consider satan to be an all-powerful being, when, in fact, he's not! He lost whatever power he had as an anointed cherub of God when he was cast out of heaven and fell to Earth (Luke 10:18; Isaiah 14:12-14) He is not equal to God in any way, and he never was! We have to realize that all he is, is a disenfranchised spirit that is seeking those that he might deceive. The Scripture says in 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the…

Halloween and the Occult!

Christian Life Issues
As a good Baptist teen-ager I felt that there had to be something supernatural, something beyond our normal "human" abilities to life. I had enough spiritual insight to know that there was "something" supernatural available to mankind, but not enough to know what! I was totally ignorant of God's supernatural, that is, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, healing and the miraculous. My church taught that all of God's supernatural had been done away with, and we were left assuming God had "gotten tired" or something. To me as a young Baptist lad, the Holy Spirit was an "it", not a "He!" (The Holy Spirit IS, of course, a "He!") However, due to this desire for something supernatural in my life, I was pulled into a study of the "scientific"…

Just What Do We Mean by “HyperFaith?”

How Faith Works
"HYPER," meaning "excessive, above, or beyond," or, "more than", and it is "used as a prefix to technical concepts to convey a more advanced capability." "FAITH" is defined Biblically as, "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) "Hyperfaith" is a term coined by critics of the Word of Faith message that is supposed to be derogatory... however we embrace it! After all, having "excessive, above or beyond," or advanced capability in the area of Biblical faith sounds excellent to us! In upcoming articles we will be talking about what faith is, what it is not, and providing excellent IPTV (Internet Protocol TeleVision) video shows, as well as more audio podcasts about how YOU can use the God kind of faith!

Why Speak Your Faith?

How Faith Works
There has been a lot of discussion in recent years about the "Word of Faith Message", or "The Power of Confession", or maybe you've heard the term, "Name it and Claim it!" The question at hand is as to whether it is Biblical to teach that "profession brings possession" is a simple matter of checking the Bible, the Word of God, to see if the scriptures lend credence to this teaching. An often quoted scripture is Romans 4:17, "(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." Note that God, it says, "makes alive the dead, and calls those things that be not, (are…
