The first step on your road to spiritual victory

October 16, 2013

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.

 1 John 4:1–2 

I think that many people today don’t give the devil enough credit. Here’s what I mean: Many Christians believe that when Satan is at work, it’s easy to see it’s him. But the truth is that Satan very often disguises himself as an agent of good. In fact, if Satan were to walk in the room right now, you might be tempted to worship him!

The devil disguises himself as an angel of light. He’s clever, cunning, and attractive. He even preaches on Sunday from time to time! He’s involved in many “spiritual experiences” and is often mistaken for God.

So with such a powerful enemy against us, how do we have any hope of victory in spiritual warfare? Well, the answer is Jesus. He is the ultimate diagnostic as to what is from God and what isn’t.

If you’re not sure whether something is of God or is not, ask yourself the question, “Does this glorify Jesus?” If it does, then you can know it’s from God. If it takes glory away from Jesus, then it’s not. Discern what’s from God and what’s from the enemy, and you’ll take the first step in finding spiritual victory!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013

Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
