Devils don't have to multiply to demonize people. There are many of the same spirits which oppress many people. I realize,at THAT time,that it was not just the apostles who could cast out demons but this was for a sign. We don't need to cast out demons today. People are only set free by His word and Spirit. If you know of anyone who actually can heal and deliver people from their infirmities then you must direct them to all of those who would so benefit. You do realize that it is the gifts of healing (plural) and not gift/ singular? Wouldn't the gift be that which is given to the one who is healed and not in reference to the one who "heals"? God does the work. We pray and seek His wisdom. There are many today who are so bold as to take credit for being instrumental in God's miracles but that they believe this shows their lack of discernment and humility.
It's a liberal university in a liberal town, and this head pays attention to the bottom line.
Wikipedia wrote: DePaul University is a private university in Chicago, Illinois. Founded by the Vincentians in 1898, the university takes its name from the 17th-century French priest Saint Vincent de Paul. In 1998, it became the largest Catholic university by enrollment in the United States. Following in the footsteps of its founders, DePaul places special emphasis on recruiting first-generation students and others from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The university enrolls around 16,000 undergraduate and about 7,600 graduate/law students, making DePaul the 13th largest private university by enrollment in the United States, and the largest private university in Illinois. The student body represents a wide array of religious, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds, including over 60 foreign countries
John MacArthur said or, wrote: Beloved, listen to this. This is the point I've been trying to make in this message and the message before. You take care of your own life before God in the area of holiness, and demons have no way that they can bother you. That's the point! We don't need to run around and have the demon of fingernail biting and post nasal drip cast out of us. We don't need to be preoccupied with all kinds of long, drawn-out sessions of the Christian exorcism using the Name of Jesus like a formula. Beloved, I just believe this: That the Bible says here's a case of people who are having fellowship with demons and Paul simply says, "You examine yourself, and you enact judgment in your own heart. You bring about confession and repentance in your own life, and man, you're acceptable."
...let me make one point - and I don't want it to go any further than this one point. This: I don't need you as other Christians to take care of my own holiness. Do you understand ... I can take care of myself. That's between God and me. Now, I may need you to rebuke my sin, but it's up to me to be honest enough to confess and repent of it. That's between me and God.

Itâ€™s reported that international terrorists have used info provided by Snowden to make it harder for our government to spy on their communications.
The founding fathers of this country would be considered traitors to Britain according to the definition. The military is sworn to protect against enemies both foreign and domestic. If they were to stick up against powers that be who do evil in our government one group could consider them traitors and another group see them as upholding their oath. My point is there is a time and place for everything and the lines are not so black and white when dealing against corruption which snowedin is confronting. The fact that most of the public supports him in a republic that is broken and is suppose to be run by the people and for the people. They want us to follow our role as they neglect to follow their role in representing and sticking up for us. The system is broken the lines are blurred.
Very well narrated I am always overjoyed when I find narrations like this. Especially of such a great book. I have always had an interest in reformed materials in audio-book format since this is my 31st year of narrating. When I find others adding to the number, I feel a kindred spirit and love in our common Savior and thankfulness that He is stirring others up to edify others in this way. Very well done.

Hey Penned I believe preachers/Christians should talk about every issue that is mentioned in the Bible. This includes marking out evil I.e abortion and any other moral issues the Bible brings up. If you bring up all the moral problems there will not even be a need to address political problems the congregation should be walking in the Spirit and in truth and have no problem with making all their daily decisions. A Church that is laking in the full council of the Lord of course will be week and not have discernment in such things as politics.
Just my thoughts. Should a pastor tell someone who to vote for? I think not we are to do all we do by faith and the guidance of the Spirit. To one it is right to vote for Trump to go against the far left movement to another not voting is right for them. But voting Hillary well I could give a speech about why that is wrong
I also gave a comment just today about Muslim immigration. Which many PC people would frown upon lol.
It seems many would disagree with your view on pietism penned -https://gotquestions.org/Pietism.html 1Ti 2:1Â I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;Â 1Ti 2:2Â For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.Â Heb 12:14Â Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord
I see nothing in the bible that calls us to be politically active and use government to shape the world. Since Satan is the ruler of the air, how can anyone expect a utopia-type America? "Pietists were basically interested in the religious renewal of the individual, belief in the Bible as the unfailing guide to faith and life, a complete commitment to Christ which must be evident in the Christianâ€™s life, the need for Christian nurture through the faithful use of appropriate devotional aids, including sermons and hymns, and finally a concern to apply the love of Christ so as to alleviate the social and cultural ills of the day" - source http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/issues/issue-10/youre-such-pietist.html
better check your facts wrote: This is a Catholic fundraiser From Wikipedia The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, commonly known as the Al Smith Dinner, is an annual white tie fundraiser in the United States for Catholic charities from the Alfred E Smith website Founded by His Eminence, Francis Cardinal Spellman in 1946, to honor the memory of Alfred Emanuel Smith, New York's renowned Governor and patron of the "Little People": the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation brings hope to the neediest children of the Archdiocese of New York, regardless of race, creed, or color. http://www.alsmithfoundation.org/
Well then Clinton should not have been invited to that dinner because she supports everything that the Catholic Church is against. And Kaine should not have been invited to that dinner either since he supports everything the Catholic Church is against.
Scripture Becomes More Real To Me We hear about Mary, but we never really give it all that much thought, or at least that is what I have always encountered & understood. In this sermon, that all changed.
For the very first time, I met the Marys. I know who & what they are for the first time. This is exciting for me.
As a woman, I now feel more close to the Lord. I see how those 3 Marys were used, what they meant, who they were & now I look at myself & my relationship with Christ so much more differently.
I don't know why God chose Pastor Nibert to impart this information to me, but He did & for that I am so very thankful. I love the Lord Jesus Christ so much and not only want to be with Him, but to be as close as I can to Him. These sermons serve to make that desire possible. I am so happy & I feel so loved. Especially after hearing this sermon.
Thank you Lord Jesus, thank you.
pietism is vile. and left the church in such a pitiable position that it took a wealthy businessman to call out the corruption that our churches no longer felt necessary to call out.
Jesus Christ is Lord of all, Lord of Creation, King of Kings, and Commnsts put Christians in concentration camps for saying His name because it is affront to them being Lord of the land.
Being a Christian automatically makes them a criminal in a commnst state because in a commnst state, the state gov or the consensus is the highest law, even if it conflicts with the 10 Commandments and the Conscience.
Christians do not seek to be political, but in so doing our Father's Business, we are political.
By nature our work is political.
Again, we do not seek to be political,we are not seeking to gain power, but our nature is conflictory with this world and so by doing our Father's business we are an affront to the political system when that system is corrupted.
In China if a woman is pregnant and doesn't want the forced abortion, she creates a political problem. They have to send in a magistrate and force compliance.
If a med student is told to perform an abortion as part of degree and refuses, he is brought before a board.
a nurse told to "turn up the morphine", every occupation we
Is your hope in this temporal world? Are you hoping for some kind of utopia, someone to rid the planet of evil? As Frank stated, most wrongly fight the good fight, putting their hope in men/politicians. No one here is straining gnats. Many here have done their research, both candidates are vile.
In any case, this world is not my home, why worry about how things are done? This world is under the control of the evil one, do you really think Trump will go against the grain and do right? My bible says evil men will wax worse and worse. Not sure why you think Trump will make things better, but you have a right to choose to vote. Others have a right to choose not to. Let each one do according as they deem right.
Many here understand 'God and country' simply do not mix. We are on a journey to a better country, and our Lord has prepared a place for us. I will not vote, however, your statement in reference to voting for Hillary will bring down God's judgment is interesting. Do you have a verse to back that?
Well, at least we know where. Hillary stands, no flip flops on her She is for killing babies in the womb, no if ands or buts. She is so worried about kids being killed by guns out of the womd but ok to murder while in the safest place of all. Vote for her and bring down God''a judgement on America .Strain at a gnat and swallow a camel as Jesus told the Pharisees.
"Media" = Isn't that completely synonymous with Liberal?
Being part of the entertainment industry is usually Liberal.
Therefore :- Democrat. Socialist. Immoral. Politically Correct. Supports Sodom and Gomorrah. Anti Authority in society. * [But] Big Brother Liberalism must rule all. * [Thus] Any detractors from the cause should be excommunicated from nation, society and community life. * Or RE-educated!!
Frank wrote: Good comment brother. The only thing is most of us define the "good fight" differently.
Yes most of what people consider as "the good fight" is not much of a fight in any aspect of there life. I consider the good fight as walking how the Bible has set forth and warring with the flesh and anything that is not the truth set forth in the word of God.
That is exactly what is wrong many are not fighting the good fight. Good observation
Exactly Christopher. Here's an example of his flip flopping, TRUMP: As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, I'm pro-life. I'm totally against abortion, having to do with Planned Parenthood. But millions and millions of women -- cervical cancer, breast cancer -- are helped by Planned Parenthood. So you can say whatever you want, but they have millions of women going through Planned Parenthood that are helped greatly. And I wouldn't fund it. I would defund it because of the abortion factor, which they say is 3 percent. I don't know what percentage it is. They say it's 3%. But I would defund it, because I'm pro-life. But millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood. Q: In 1999, you said you were "very pro- choice." Even supporting partial-birth abortion. TRUMP: I've evolved on many issues over the years. And you know who else has? Is Ronald Reagan evolved on many issues. And I am pro-life. And if you look at the question, I was in business. They asked me a question as to pro-life or choice. And I said if you let [that quoted excerpt] run, that I hate the concept of abortion. I hate the concept of abortion. And then since then, I've very much evolved."
