Day 96: What Is Our Internal Enemy?

In the Rebellion and Fall of Adam, two terrible things happened to us: 1) We have each been declared guilty before God because of Adam’s sinful “vote” on our behalf, and 2) We have each inherited the corruption of sin that has marred our ability to think and act in a godly way. Understanding who we are “in Adam” is the first step in comprehending how Christ has set us free and empowered us to live an entirely new KIND of life.

1 John 5:19
We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of The Evil One.

We are living in a world that is engaged in a Great Spiritual War. There are only two sides in this Great War: those who are allied with the One True God as His beloved Children and those who are still enslaved by Satan—The Devil—in the Dominion of Darkness.  This week, we begin to explore how we engage in the spiritual struggles that take place around and within us.

Day 90: Who Is The Holy Spirit?

By Stacy Tyson | 2024-07-07

John 16:7
But I (Jesus) tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I am going away. For if I do not go away, The Advocate/Witness will not come to you, but if I go, I will send Him to you.

It is important to know and understand the reality of the Spirit’s ministry to us because His presence in us connects us vitally to the life of the Father and Son. He also empowers us to so that we can engage our daily battles with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead!
