I had asked the Lord yesterday what He wanted me to share today in this post about Kingdom POWER. Why was I not surprised when, just moments later, He answered my question? 🙂
I had been in a meeting with a Forever Sister-in-Christ. One I was meeting face-to-face for the first time, after she had seen me speak last week. She invited me to speak to a group she founded over two years ago. A group that gathers women together and encourages them to “Dare to Share” their testimonies about what God has done for them.
She even quoted the Scripture that had inspired her to start this group: “For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” (Revelation 12:10-11)
My speech last week was all about overcoming. The world, my flesh… and even, in part, the enemy whose only agenda is to steal, kill and destroy. Spiritual Warfare, when the stakes were really Life or Death. Having heard that testimony, she now wants me to share it with the women the Lord has drawn into her sphere of influence.
I can hardly wait! 🙂
We said our goodbyes. I started my car. Seeing the time, I rejoiced! It was 6 PM, so I could listen to one of my favorite, nationally-syndicated radio hosts — Janet Parshall. A highly-respected Christian voice in our day, who tackles the toughest issues that confront us in today’s “marketplace of ideas.”
Why was I not surprised when her topic last night was Spiritual Warfare?! With a guest she herself highly respects — Dr. Karl Payne, Pastor of Leadership Development and Discipleship at Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington and Chaplain for the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.
Follow this link and listen to the 55-minute program, “Put Your Armor On” — https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/in-the-market-with-janet-parshall/2018/02-2018/2.15.18-the-world-and-the-word—put-your-armor-on/
After listening to Dr. Payne, I ordered his book — Spiritual Warfare. Chapter 2’s title caught my eye: How did a Non-Charismatic, Ordained Conservative Baptist Minister Ever Begin Working with Demonized Individuals? How, indeed?
Perhaps because the Lord showed him the need? And then broke through the snare-like deceptions the enemy had laid in his path, to keep him from seeking to meet that need?
Snares like, “But Christians don’t experience this, do they?” and “Even if I did, how could I ever dare to go up against an enemy so much more powerful than I am?!”
Dr. Payne has spent the last 30 years debunking LIES like these… and helping people overcome demonic interference in their lives. It might surprise you to know that most of those he has helped are Christians.
If you want to be able to identify when real demonic activity is present in your life, and mobilize real Kingdom POWER to break free from it, Dr. Payne offers practical, proven, step-by-step “how to” instructions.
Have you ever experienced a demonic attack and…
… felt helpless to repel it? Or empowered to overcome it?
