You Are a New Creation

Rev Steve Scroggs

Since God chose you to be His son or daughter, it is time for you to put away your denial and acknowledge your destiny! You are a new creation. You are special.

First of all, when you receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you are born into the family of God. This means you are a son or daughter of the King. Eternal life flows through you.

Second, the kingdom of God is within you. You have all the resources within you to live strong, courageous, and confident! YOU ROCK!

Your only limiting factor is what you believe. Believe, you are a new creation.

The Soul in SozoLife

The Soul in SozoLife

Eternity Holds the World

He Holds the World

The soul in SozoLife is healed and restored to wholeness. This is required for an ongoing relationship with the eternal God. To walk in your created purpose you will need God to Save (SOZO) you. God original purpose for you is written in Genesis 1:26. “And God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion… over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”[1]

 

SozoLife Knocks!

I heard a knock. The church was silent on Mondays. When I opened the door, she stood trembling. She said, “Hi… I heard you cast out demons here. Is that true? I have been visited almost every night for years now. When they first came they were friendly and would take me places in the spirit. Then they wanted me to do things for them. Lately, they have been telling me to do things that I do not want to do. When I say no, they hurt me and threaten me and my family. Can you help me?”

I had not seen this level of brokenness before. She was tormented with thoughts of depression and suicide. She had been broken so many times that she thought she was a piece of dirt with the value of a grain of sand. The enemy used the people she cared about to pulverize her. Although her response was instinctual, she chose unforgiveness and opened a doorway to the demonic realm.

 

Torment in America

Sad Teenage GirlHer story was unbelievable. As we talked, she recounted story after story. Experiences of childhood violence, exploitation, neglect, and cruelty. The stories starred her father and mother as villains of violent abuse, and co-stared other distant family members as protagonists.  Then later, her mother’s boyfriend enters the cast hurling insults with foul-language, physical beatings, and sexual violence to pleasure himself. He heart was crushed over and over again, she turned to some of her “imaginary friends,” unclean spirits to “help” her. As the relationships grew, the demons began to come at night when she was asleep and take her places.

Since her life was filled with abuse, she invested her life in anger, resentment, bitter envy, and selfish ambition with a quest to validate herself through meticulous accountability. (This kind of life is shown in the Harry Potter stories.) As a result, she sought out occult ritual, spells, and curses for protection, and a witch’s coven became a much needed alliance. But, what she did not see coming was the torment of demon possessed people. Regardless of what you believe, a demon will always steal, kill, and destroy whatever it touches. This is the objective and the enchantment.

As I listened to her, my heart broke. As a baby, her grandmother inducted her into the Cherokee Shaman witch doctor rites. Through her young adult years, her relationships continued a pattern of abuse as she moved from one traumatic experience to another. The depth of her obsession reached critical mass when she was committed to a psychiatric treatment facility. On one such occasion, she was sexually abused by a Catholic priest.

Her strategy was to protect herself through whatever means necessary, until she realized that it didn’t work. She came because there were more powerful unseen forces at work.

 

light and bibleSilver Lining

There was a silver lining. As a young girl, she attended a Vacation Bible School, and received Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, but at home the abuse did not stop. Even as a child she remembered crying out to God for help, and he would touch her with his love and light. God saves a soul through faith, not through a life of perfect choices.

Although she believed God, she was still holding unforgiveness and bitterness toward those who abused her. When she came, her life and mental state was shattered.

 

A Gift

Yet, somewhere in the midst of all the brokenness she received a “natural” gift for healing. When she laid hands on someone, she could sense the sickness and extract it from their body through her arms. Then within the span of an hour, she belched and released the sickness. (This was in 1992, years before The Green Mile.) I saw her use this gift. It was this gift that charmed the Witches’ Covens. When she attended the Coven, people were healed, and it looked like the witches had ceremonial healing powers.

As we began to minister she was set free. Through a number of sessions, she completely gave her heart and soul to God. Jesus saved (Sozoed), delivered, healed and made her whole.  Through a relationship with Holy Spirit, she began to walk in the authority that the cross of Jesus Christ provided. But there was a process of transformation.

 

Every Good Gift

key-light-spiritWhen I heard her story and saw the gift of healing, I sought God with a question, “Lord God, is this gift from you, and the subsequent healing from you?” One morning he gave me this scripture:

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”[2]

The understanding that every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father, began to open new understanding. It does not matter where I receive a good and perfect gift; at home, at work, at church, at play, or even at a non-religious gathering. Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights. When someone receives healing, deliverance, provision, or any good gift, it came down heaven. John the Baptist agrees with this as well.

John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”[3]

The mystery that God expresses in scripture inspires the soul to believe, and what you choose to believe rules you. The scripture is clear.  The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. But, Witches want people to believe they have great healing power. This is one way evidence can be manipulated to lie. If demons can heal why not go to them? Demons do not create life, give healing, or bring the peace of God. I have not found one place a demon ever creates. God alone creates life, health, and healing.

 

A New Perspective

It had been months since her deliverance when she showed up at my office extremely disturbed. She opened the Bible to Job 38:31-33, put her finger on the page and said, “Why is God using the Zodiac?”

After I collected my thoughts, I realized her world view was upside down. I said, “God is not using the Zodiac. He created the signs in the heavens that you call the Zodiac. Everyone who uses the constellations as the Zodiac is using the signs He created to focus their faith for a personal advantage. ‘All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made.’[4] He is the source of all things.'”

 

SozoLife Opens the Soul

As God began to open the eyes of her soul, she saw a dark fog-like cloud surrounding her, with little static lightning bolts sporadically illuminating. She had lost her identity in her childhood, and began to believe that she was the sum of her dark secrets. She was visited by a demon and told that he would protect her. The demon lied, because that is what they do. But, since she wanted help, she agreed; but over the years her identity was eclipsed by this ominous cloud of depression.

After this was revealed I said, “This is good news.”

She said, “Good news? This is not good news, it’s a demon. What do you mean its good news?”

I responded, “Well, all that you have been experiencing, and all of the symptoms you have recounted are the energies and characteristics of this dark cloud. This means that it is not you! All of the thoughts of suicide and torment are not your thoughts. It is the demon that is manifesting as this ominous cloud.” Then I said, “Do you want to keep this demon and his assaults?”

She said, “No! Are you kidding?”

I reacted with a small chuckle, “I have to ask that question so that your will can engage.” As I began to reveal the authority that Christ had established for her, she was filled with a righteous anger for the years this demon had stolen from her.

God led her as a gentle lamb to His cross, and then walked with her to complete freedom. Today, she lives saved, delivered, healed, and whole. Only Jesus heals the body soul and spirit.

HEALING IN THE SOUL

You can have healing in the Soul!

Can you imagine a life of peace and confidence?

by Steve Scroggs

It’s a true story not all that different from yours. Like me, you may have walked up behind someone taking papaSkyyour name in vain. The accusations hurt, the facts sketchy, but the betrayal went all the way to the bone. Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Jesus knew what he was talking about! God’s process to heal the end time warrior’s soul is sozo – the Greek word translated saved, delivered, healed, and made whole. You can receive Healing for the Soul in Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul said, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (sozoed)”.[1]

 

A New York Artist

When a troubled forty-something man arrived, the smell of apple blossoms floated on the fresh sunlight. He was well-known in his New York City community as the He-man tuff-guy, a brilliant tattoo artist, with a strong Bronx accent. He wanted all the right things for his family, but those who defied his personal sense of justice survived wounded in the wake.

His wake began in his teen years after suffering inhumane abuse. One day as he stood to subdued his step-father, an almost euphoric feeling swelled up within him, moved him to a bystander position, and took control of his body. He was never hit again, but he made a pact with an unclean spirit.

This complicated his marriage and family relationships. After almost thirteen years of a court moderated divorce, he has begun to experience the same feelings coming up inside him toward his not-so-understanding defiant son. He said, “I know if I keep this spirit my relationship with my son will be destroyed. I sense the swelling in me when my son disrespects me, and I know it is just a matter of time. Can you help me?”

 

Jesus Speaks

handofgod1davincciThe “shadow play” concerning unclean spirits is surrounded with mystery. We don’t want to talk about the highly deceptive and extremely controlling fallen angels who are tasked with our destruction. But Jesus spoke to our freedom.

But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Just as you have guardian angels to protect you, you also have familiar (family) spirits; demons that travel blood-lines to visit the iniquity of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.[2] “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”[3] The artist’s enemy was not his step-father. Although demons exist invisible to the natural eye, they incite others against you. This attack exploits your fear, doubt, and unbelief. The battle originates in the mind. John’s heavenly vision shows us how to win.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. … for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he hath but a short time.[4]

The key is Jesus Christ. When you share a personal relationship, you receive salvation, strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ. Salvation is soteria from the Greek sotersavior, deliverer, and speaks of the complete redemption received from our infinite King-Savior.[5] Strength is dynamis – inherent miraculous power residing and enacted by virtue of His nature. Kingdom is basileiathe sovereign authority to rule all realms of creation simultaneously. Power is exousia privilege of authority one exercises in judicial decisions…[6] The authority to rule comes from God, and the privilege of mastery comes from the Anointed One. Since Jesus was revealed to destroy the works of the devil, when he left, he gave that commission to you.[7]

The devil that controlled the artist stayed at his bidding. As the Spirit of truth opened his memories he received a new perspective. When he was a teen-ager, he took matters into his own hands, cried out for help to overpower his abuser, and summoned an unclean spirit. Jesus said, But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. When he submitted to the rule and reign of God, Christ set him free. But, how did his soul reason with God?

First, he was saved by confessing the sin of unforgiveness. His choice to harbor years of bitterness fostered a lie, “I have a right to be wounded and defend myself through whatever means necessary, and use the pain to protect myself from future abusers.” This decision linked his destiny to fallen angels, and left the forgiveness and comfort of the Holy Spirit in the dust.[8] His new confession, “I have a right to defend the kingdom, but I will forgive anyone who offends me. I will trust and solicit the help of God and His angels to protect me.”

Second, he was healed by repenting of his personal sense of justice that said, “You are abusive and will always intimidate. Therefore, I will arouse whatever power necessary to dominate you. You will not hurt me or my family again.” These judgments approved the devil’s strategy, and left “walk in the Spirit” and “trust in God” stranded.[9] His new confession, “I will honor and respect those in authority over me, and confront the principalities with the anointing of God in truth. And then appeal to the Father for power and authority.”

Third, he was made whole by confessing the sin of idolatry – implementing vows that made himself god, “I will never let anyone hurt me like that again. I will not trust anyone who hurts me. So, when I sense the same violent abuse, I will send my defender.” When he opened this door he failed the grace of God, and signed up for torment.[10] His new profession, “I confess the sin of idolatry, and I give my life to the only true God. I will cry out for his help in my time of need. I will fight the good fight of faith, receive what God allows, and then obtain healing from His hand.”

Fourth, he was delivered by casting the demon away. After you replace the legal stronghold with truth the demonic has no right to stay.[11] His commandment, “By the authority of the Word of God, and through the power of the Blood of Jesus, I bind you unclean spirit of intimidation and murder in Jesus’ name. You will leave my life now; you will leave my body now in Jesus’ name. I do not want you, I do not need you, and I renounce any involvement with you. Leave and present yourself before the throne of God according to Job chapter one and verse six. And, do not return to me in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Fifth, he was healed when the perfect love of God entered his soul.[12] He was cured from almost twenty-five years of demonic abuse, and he literally looked ten years younger.

God wants his children to live in Shalom by resolving their past in the context of truth. He said, “Come now, and let us reason together… though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow…”[13] When the human soul is subjected to trauma, deceptions will prevail from the soul unless one comes and reasons with the Father. The Apostle Paul called this, “…transformed by the renewing of your mind…”[14] God loves the human soul and gave his life’s blood to redeem it. Teaching the sons of God how to process their soul with the Spirit of truth releases them to become a cleansed and purified Temple of God, possessed by the Holy Spirit.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

God whispers. The rustle in the trees is not the only wind that blows on earth. There are times when God whispers truth into the soul of a man or woman, and a song is born. He whispers to your heart. He says, “I love you, and I created this world so that you could experience me and know me.” The Father loves you, and wants you to enjoy the life He has given you. He has given you a way to be happy, in whatever circumstance you find yourself. The decision is yours, because you make up your own perspective by the focus of your thoughts and paradigms.

In 1988 Bobby McFerrin wrote a BIG little song that swept the world titled, “Don’t be worry be happy!” It won a Grammy Award for the song of the year. I loved the song then, and I like it even more now. The whole world listened, danced and moved with Bobby’s song, but I don’t think they understood it. God was whispering through a musician and most of us missed it.

The Blessings of Musicians

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy

In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry, you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy

Don’t worry, be happy (x4)
Oo, ooo…

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy

The land-lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy

Look at me, I’m happy

Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got no girl to make you smile
Don’t worry, be happy

‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy

 

Don’t worry, don’t worry, don’t do it, be happy
Let the smile on your face
Don’t bring everybody down like this

Don’t worry, people will soon pass
What ever it is

Don’t worry, be happy

I am not worried, I am happy

Most people are happy when everything is going good, because it seems easy to be happy when your life comes together. But the Father wants you to be happy and joyful in every circumstance, good or bad. How do you do that? Number 1, always praise your Father in heaven for everything that comes into your life. (2 Chronicles 20:1-30) Choose to say, what I experience I am experiencing with God and is my opportunity to trust Him and believe Him. Number 2, thank God for every circumstance. (Job 1) Choose to say, thank you God, I believe you know best, and you are allowing everything to come into my life for a purpose. Number 3, choose to let the event play out in faith believing that God will work all things together for good. (Romans 8:13-30) Choose to say, the story I will tell from this experience will be the most exciting and most encouraging part of my earth’s journey. God created this life for you and he knows how to make everything work together for your good.

Your mindset; the paradigm of life and the filter through which you choose to process life will determine whether you have a positive or negative state of mind and whether you will enjoy or hate the life God has given you. Have you ever met a person who always saw what could go wrong in every circumstance? You know him as the critic who can never see the silver lining, or the eternal purpose for the difficulty you will face, but only congratulate himself when the bad happens he predicted. There is another way. 

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks:for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

When Job was faced with the worst circumstance in his life he made one declaration, “Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” In all that Job went through the scripture says, “In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.” (Job 1:21-22)

When the Israelites were facing an enemy massively larger than they, they bowed their knee to the Lord and began to pray. Their imminent destruction was at hand. Tomorrow they would all die, if they believed the press. But King Jehoshaphat led his people in prayer. He didn’t call the defense minister, he didn’t call the generals, he didn’t call other nations to join him. He called God to join him. The scripture records it this way.

“And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord, before the new court, And said, ‘O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee? Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever? And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying, If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help. And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit. O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do:but our eyes are upon thee. And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.'”

The King’s eyes were turned to God, and in this circumstance he only had a few choices. He could have said, “we are all going to die, so eat drink and be merry.” He also could have said, “I told you this was going to happen… if you all kept on sinning and treating God badly.” But instead, he choose to focus his own heart and the heart of the people on the only one who could save them. And then, someone in the crowd who was tuned into God’s channel began to prophesy.

“Then upon Jahaziel…, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation; And he said, ‘Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you. And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground:and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshipping the Lord. And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

In the face of certain destruction the King and the people of Israel began to pray and seek the Lord for their help and protection. This strategy is the only strategy for you and me. The only way to engage God’s help and favor is to pray and trust him! Do not complain. Do not threaten. Do not challenge. Do not swell up in anger. Do not stand up for your rights. Give yourself completely into the hands of your loving and gracious heavenly Father. There is a time to fight, but the first step in God’s economy is surrender and trust.

When you choose believe God mountains will move when you speak to them. Look at the mindset of Israel as they go out face the enemy.

Harp and shofar

You are the Instrument of Praise

“And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, ‘Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.’ And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endures for ever.”

This strategy will always be rewarded. It may not turn out like you think, but it will always be rewarded! Look what happens when the people began to sing and praise the Lord. You must answer a huge question! IS GOD REAL? While He is invisible, will he intervene in physical circumstances? Does He want to intervene for you?

 

“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them:and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped. And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.” 

You must begin to see with His eyes! When a bad situation comes, you are getting ready to be blessed and prospered, if you will stand with the Lord! Praise in the midst of difficulties is a theme in the apostle Paul’s writings. 

“Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” Romans 12:15 KVJ

“And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.” 2 Corinthians 2:3 KJV

“Rejoice in the Lord alway:and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippians 4:4 KJV

This Book can Help You

This Book can Help You

On day, on my way home from our church, Mountain Vintage Fellowship, the Lord whispered to me. “I give all the music you hear on the earth. Life is hard here. Without music man would not survive. And I give all kinds of music. Music will touch people in every stage and in whatever emotional state they find themselves. Music is an eternal medium that will always remind you of me. There is meditative music for those who seek serenity, angry music for those who are angry, happy music for those who are happy, depressed music for those depressed, praise music for those who praise, and worshipful music for those who worship me. When people are young and rebellious, I have a way to touch them. Through their music. And usually, as people grow older and learn how to resolve their conflicts their taste in music changes. Music is an eternal medium that falls from heaven into the soul. But, the words come from the heart and can bring darkness into the music. Be happy and enjoy what I have made for you”

You always have a choice. But you may say, “I can’t help but see the bad, because bad is always happening!”  When your heart and mind has been trained to see the bad, you will always see it first. But, that does not have to be your focus. Choose God and live in His promise and Power.

Remember what to do! Number 1, always praise your Father in heaven for everything that comes into your life. Number 2, thank God for every circumstance. Number 3, choose to let the event play out in faith believing that God will work all things together for good. The story you live and share will bless thousands. Life is short, live it! Don’t worry, be Happy! God created this life for you and he knows how to make everything work together for your good.

SozoLife: Healing for your Soul

Healing for your Soul

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.[1]

“My life is falling apart! I ache inside for peace and love, but I don’t know why I cannot have it. Does God really love me?” That day I was sitting with an anxious, thirty-something year old, who was over weight and appeared to be forty-something. The stress line map on her face indicated dashed dreams, fragmented expectations, and shattered promises. This is not the life Father God wanted for her. She continued, “I always have a sense of cold darkness around me. I feel like I’m isolated, alone, depressed, and hopeless. There have been times that it is all I can do to get out of bed in the morning. It is like a dark depression that is mixed with fear and anxiety.” I am not sure if anyone in my 30 year counseling ministry experience had as many words to describe her condition. I thought, how could someone so in touch with his or her feelings be so far from hope? There is a difference between knowing what you feel and knowing how to resolve emotional conflict.Continue Reading..

Why So Much About Demons?

Are they there? Can an invisible being hurt me? Why so much about demons? Many people are tormented and do not know why. I have felt a massive urgency to write about demons or fallen angels. (Job 1:6,7) Many times disease is driven by a demon. Disease is invisible and torments the soul of man. Like the picture in this post, the artist paints angels and demons, but seeing them and dealing with them is another matter. Mystery surrounds the spirit realm, but do not fear Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

And there was war in Heaven

And there was war in Heaven

It is absolutely astonishing to me how many people in the west; Europe, England, America and Canada believe that the Spirit realm is a myth. I have talked to people who live by their wits and they will say heaven is not real, hell is not plausible, angels are a work of your imagination, and demons are the ghosts of dead people. In other words, “IT IS ALL IN YOUR MIND!!!” But when Jesus walked on earth he taught his disciples and his followers how to defeat them. He said, the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come to give you life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) First, satan is you enemy not God’s. Two, the enemy’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. Third, the way to defeat him is Continue Reading..
