LIVE With Greg Locke: 7 Bible Proofs of Demonic Warfare

The critics of deliverance ministry most often point to this argument: They claim it is impossible for a born again Christian to suffer demonic oppression, and in their estimation, they believe the Bible itself says so.

The first verse these critics will point to is 1 Corinthians 6:19, which says believers are the “temple of the Holy Spirit,” which we absolutely are. But in the context of the passage, we see that Paul is explicitly talking about sexual immorality and is reminding us that we should never desecrate our bodies (our temples) with perversity like fornication. Moreover, verse 19 never states that such perverse contact is not possible for one who is indwelt with the Holy Spirit, just that it must never happen.

In verses 15–18, he is talking about the way we treat our bodies through idolatry and the perversity of the culture. Not one time in either of these passages does the Word of God say that a Christian cannot be under the influence of a demonic spirit. In fact, since we know that idolatry and perversity are an example of how “we wrestle” against spiritual wickedness (Eph. 6:12), we can see that such struggles are evidence that evil spirits can without question attack our minds and our bodies.

It might surprise you to read this, but I have come to believe that prayer in and of itself is not necessarily powerful. After all, religious people pray. Even well-meaning Christians try to put a spiritual label on things they are doing in the flesh, even spiritual practices such as prayer, fasting and praise.

Israel Authorities Reevaluating Blockage of Visas for ICEJ Clergy

The future of a major evangelical organization operating in Israel for more than 40 years could be threatened by government bureaucrats. That’s because its workers have been blocked from obtaining visas.

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem told Israeli media the government rejected their request for clergy visas because it determined the ICEJ no longer qualifies as a “religious institution.”

ICEJ Vice President David Parsons told CBN News, “We’ve faced about a three-year period now, because of COVID, because of five elections in 3 1/2 years, mid-level bureaucrats and a lot of these [government] ministries have been free to make their own decisions without proper supervision from above—from people who sort of see the wider picture of, say, the Christian support for Israel—how strategic it is for the Jewish state.”
