WHERE EVIL SPIRITS CAME FROM AND HOW TO CAST THEM OUT


‘In the synagogue there was a man who had an unclean spirit and he cried out with a loud scream, “Ahh! What have You to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know Who You are – the Holy One of God!” Jesus rebuked him saying, “Be quiet and come out of him!”  When the demon had thrown the man down, it came out of him without injuring him.  They were amazed and said, “What Word is this? For with authority and power He commands the evil spirits and they come out?’” (Luke 4:33 to 36).
We have written this Bible study for your information, solely to deal with the subject of the devil, demons and how to take authority over them.  We are not to gloat about the God-given authority we have over the devil. ‘I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power the enemy possesses and nothing will in any way harm you.

EXPOSING SOME MYTHS REGARDING THE BIBLE

Most certainly the Bible is for everyone, and anyone who is able to read can read the Bible and those who can hear can listen to its teachings.  The simple things in the Bible can be understood by anyone who reads or hears it, but the deep spiritual meanings are hidden unless God Himself opens their spiritual eyes so they can understand. ‘He opened up their minds so they could understand the Scriptures’ (Luke 24:45).  Unless God opens our spiritual eyes and ears we cannot fully understand what is written.  Many Christians have trouble understanding what God is really saying, as did the twelve disciples. ‘They understood nothing of these things.  His words were a mystery and were hidden from them, and they did not comprehend what He was telling them’ (Luke 18:34).  As a consequence of their inability to comprehend the spiritual meanings hidden deep within the pages of the Bible, many non-believers and lay-preachers have written stories, legends a…

WOMEN SHOULD NOT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER MEN IN CHURCH



‘Wives, be subject to your own husbands as a service to the Lord. The husband is the head of the wife as Jesus is Head of the church, Himself the Saviour of His Body. As the church is subject to Jesus, so let wives be subject in everything to their husbands’ (Ephesians 5:22 to 24).
This is an issue that can keep people out of God’s will and therefore out His Kingdom. 
The Lord is not pleased with women’s liberation because women should never have authority over men. 
Sadly though, women’s liberation has seeped into the modern-day church, and God’s teaching on this subject is discarded by many as just being the culture of the day during the writing of the New Testament. 
That attitude is so wrong because that infers some of the Bible is outdated, something we all know is untrue. 
The Lord expects women to be submissive to their husbands today, just as they were to be so when the scriptures were written.
