Demons and Strongholds III

In our third installment of Demons & Strongholds, specific teaching about the “how” of bringing down strongholds will be presented. 

We will address these questions: 

-- Where is the war fought?
-- What weapons do we employ?
-- How do we wage this war? 

Understanding of our greatest weapon against demonic activity is crucial for our well-being.

Demons and Strongholds Series Continues

As our series on Demons & Strongholds continues, we will examine the two-fold agenda of demons and how Satanic stronghold operate.  The early church had challenges by brethren under the influence of demons. 

Timothy was given clear instructions on how to deal with such individuals. 

We are given clear instructions on how to recognize strongholds in our own lives and the remedy offered “in Christ.”

New Series: Demons & Strongholds

Beginning next Sunday, we will start a new mini series on Demons & Strongholds, and examine the activity of the evil one and his agents in the past and in the present. The key weapon the believer possesses is the knowledge that Jesus Christ has authority and dominion over any and all evil powers.

Awareness of satanic influence must be balanced with awareness and acceptance of Christ's remedies. No one denies that the devil is in the business of oppressing people with all manner of difficulties. He counts on us not appropriating the benefits of Christ's blood.

The study will take notice of the foundational principles we will need to study this topic, what demons do and how to be delivered from them, and the importance of pulling down strongholds.

Our Nation's Independence

 This week we celebrate the 4th of July – our nation's independence. Independence is a good thing as long as it doesn't translate into a feeling of independence upon Almighty God.

This Sunday we will talk about our freedom “in Christ” and how a secular society wars against God's Kingdom. Not all of our founding fathers were believers, yet there was a profound respect for the place Christ played in the hearts of the early citizens.

We will ask what a secular society looks like and how believers can properly respond to the frightening trends of the day.

The Greatest Immigration II

 This Sunday we continue our study on The Greatest Immigration.  People risk everything in order to experience “the better life.”  Our nation used to welcome immigrants, but all the illegal border busters has changed our opinion. 

Truth is, when we look back in history, the first illegal immigrants were the pilgrims.  No visas, no permission, no invitation to enter this land we call America, but they came in droves until the entire population reflected a new nation. 

How are believers to respond to all the modern border busters?  This Sunday we will seek Christ's heart on this matter. 

Greatest Immigration Story in History

 What was the greatest immigration in history? The Hebrew Exodus? Pilgrims coming to the New World. Twentieth century Europeans coming to America? Illegal aliens in our present day?

None of these.

Sunday we will talk about immigration – why people do it - and what Jesus has to say about those seeking a better life.

God's Plan For Fathers

 This week's Father's Day message will feature two very popular songs of our day, Because You Loved Me, written by Diane Warren and The Greatest Man I Never Knew, performed by Reba McIntyre. Two very different songs tell two very different stories about the influence and power of fathers in the home.

If your children wrote a song about your influence, what would the words reveal about you? Dads need a plan if their children are to receive and carry a message of hope for their future.

Sunday we will discuss the plan.

True North

 This Sunday, we will take some time to congratulate and pray over our three graduating high school seniors. As we see in so many examples in Scripture, we all have the opportunity to share from our faith and experiences with our friends and family. So, this week, several of our members as well as the familes of our graduating seniors will be sharing what they have learned and what God has shared in their lives.

Come join us!

Three Classic Lies

 This past week I read an article on the web entitled, Ten Lies We Believe by John Locke. It was primarily about the lies we accept in the arena of politics, and how blinded we are by the media and Hollywood. Locke's words were quite radical, and it made me wonder about the many lies we that affect Christian community.

This Sunday we will look at three classic lies about happiness and how the Holy Spirit weighs in on the subject of lies and happiness.

Fine Tuning Our Prayer Life

 Mark 9 tells the story of how the disciples failed to exorcize a demon from a man's son. The disciples were saying and doing the right things; but without the desired results.

They had the authority to heal and drive out demons, and yet this time there was failure. Why is it that some prayers seem to get no answers? In story, Jesus will be addressing what to do when close to a breakthrough.

What do we need to know about prayer that will help us get to the next level?
