The Enemy has lost the war, and if we will take authority as Jesus has given us permission to do, then the Enemy will also lose the battles he wages in your life and mine.
We need more than a tepid, easy-to-swallow, so-called gospel that is void of power, holiness, and transformation. We want a rebirth of New Testament Christianity.
How do we show justice and grace? By loving God and others. We shouldn’t be forced to choose one or the other. We need both.
We live our whole lives under the moral mandate to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
