Demonic Eyes - Spiritual WarfareYou won’t find anything on spiritual warfare in your science books. They don’t even have it on their radar. What science can “see”, however, is the presence of invisible realities we never knew existed. Things like bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and radioactive emissions threaten our lives even though we cannot see them. It’s time to gain eyes to see what science is blind to. Two invisible kingdoms are at war all around you; sometimes you even feel the “tug of war” going on within you. It really helps to know what you are up against–that way we can “guard are hearts with diligence” and take effective counter-measures through Holy Spirit directed prayers.

The Lord of the Flies

The Lord of the Flies (He’s Been Busy like a Bee)

Wounds from the past often get contaminated by false beliefs about God. This is heart breaking to see, especially when the person was raised in a Christian environment.

But you can’t leave it there! Think of your interior like a pressure cooker: Even with…

My older brother and I used to dam up the creek in the woods near our house (what did you think I meant?). The woods were hilly so the creek was swift. The soil was heavy with clay and perfect for plugging spaces between the “boulders” we would tumble into the water to form our makeshift dams. It was so much fun! We loved making the dams; but even more, we loved destroying them (hey, we were boys!) and then…

The Monkey Trap

The Monkey Trap

Ah, the monkey trap… What is it you may ask? Only a most ingenious way to catch those tasty, high flying monkeys, dreamed up by hungry, indigenous people on the jungle floor! The beauty of it is that the monkey trap uses the exasperating nature of the monkey against him. Imagine the poor natives taunted and at times pelted by these irascible creatures who stay safely out of reach in the branches above them and you will see how truly poetic is the…
