Satan cannot be in all places at one time. His knowledge and power is limited. He is no match for the Lord God Almighty. However, the devil has an enormous army of demons who obey his every command. Believers ought to know the origin of Satan’s army and remain watchful of their schemes. Thank you […]

Local churches are brimming with people of all backgrounds and beliefs. However, we rarely think about the unseen world; the invisible war that takes place within the heart of the congregation. “It comes as a shock to some people to discover that Satan goes to church. Through his demonic forces, he is actually running some […]

Living by faith is a universal practice. The object of faith is different for Christians. Believers trust in the living God; unbelievers trust in themselves and other men. There’s no doubt, the Lord honors faith (Heb. 11). This is precisely why Satan viciously attacks our faith. “According to Romans 1:17, the Christian is supposed to […]

More than anything, Satan wants you to feel guilt and shame for your sin. He compels you to take your eyes off the Savior and place them on yourself. “As long as you are feeling guilty, you are under indictment and you are moving farther and farther from the Lord. True conviction from the Spirit […]

If we are not mindful of Satan’s devices, he will defeat us with discouragement and doubt. Our sole defense is the armor of God (Eph. 6:12-17). The Wicked One does not simply want us to yield to temptation, he desires us to live in absolute guilt and shame. He revels in watching us operate in […]

by Pastor DeSpain
It is utterly foolish for mankind to believe that he can live independent of God. Since the Garden of Eden, Satan has tempted man to depend on the creature rather than the Creator (Rom. 1:25). In reality, an individual acting independently is acting under the ruler of this world, the Devil (2 Cor. 4:4). Men […]

When we reflect on King David’s “great” sin, we typically attribute it to his adultery with Bathsheba (2 Sam. 11). His adultery led to the murder of Uriah, his newborn baby, Amnon, and Absalom. However, this was not his greatest sin. There was a greater sin that resulted in the death of 70,000 people. This […]

If Satan cannot deceive Christians into believing his lies mentally, he will then attempt to destroy them physically; as illustrated by Job. His objective is to cause pain by attacking our bodies and all that relate to it. This lesson will not deliberate internal demon possession, but rather outward demonic oppression on the believer. Thank […]
