In recent weeks, the world has witnessed a relentless barrage of historic natural disasters, prompting many to ponder the reasons behind this alarming trend.
From devastating wildfires in Maui to the fierce onslaught of Hurricane Hilary upon southern California, the destruction wrought by Hurricane Idalia along Florida’s Gulf Coast, and the looming threat of Hurricane Lee menacing the East Coast, it appears that our planet is reeling under the weight of unprecedented catastrophe.
However, these catastrophic events are not confined to raging storms and wildfires; we are also witnessing a surge in powerful earthquakes across the globe, echoing the prophetic words of Jesus about the end times (Matt. 24:7-8; Mark 13:7-9; Luke 21:11).
In 1 Corinthians 12 we find a list of the manifested gifts from God to the body of Christ. These spiritual gifts are given “for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,” (Eph. 4:12). I’ve heard pastors say there’s no such thing as deliverance ministry in the Bible, but one of God’s gifts to the body is the discerning of spirits, whether angelic or demonic, and the proper use of this gift is directed to the church.
Deliverance and its derivatives are indeed Bible terms that pervade the whole of Scripture, so the fact that the word ‘deliverance’ is never found followed by the word ‘ministry’ is irrelevant, and it’s foolish to think otherwise. The words ‘youth’ and ‘ministry’ aren’t found together in the Bible either, and no one would ever claim there is no biblical basis for such ministry.
Though the word ‘deliverance’ is used broadly in reference to all types of spiritual freedom, the discerning of spirits should always involve the casting out of demons once demons are discerned. This is what we call deliverance ministry.
The rapid proliferation of artificial intelligence has stirred profound contemplation among Christians, prompting questions about the moral and ethical ramifications of this ever-expanding technology.
In the ever-evolving landscape of AI, the future remains uncertain, characterized by the promise of remarkable technological advancements juxtaposed with fears of job displacement and ethical dilemmas.
Dr. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, highlighted the dynamic nature of AI, where new moral debates overlap with technological evolution. Speaking on CBN’s “The 700 Club,” he emphasized the urgency of this issue, saying, “This is a truly frightening prospect.” Dr. Mohler urged fellow Christians to closely scrutinize the claim that AI could potentially develop a form of consciousness.
