With the Promised Land before them, the children of Israel didn't have time to be indecisive followers of God, believing God one minute and complaining the next. Their fathers before them did that and died in the wilderness. The first generation of Israelites were not victims of the circumstances that opposed them; they were victims of their own unbelief.
Years later under the leadership of Joshua, the same opportunity for possessing the Promised Land awaited a new generation. God commanded them to believe His Word and obey it. Obedience to God's Word would ensure their victory. As the second generation of Israelites trusted and obeyed God, they obtained their long-awaited inheritance.

THE WORD OF GOD teaches us that evil spirits are fallen angels that have been dethroned by Jesus Christ. Our contact with demons should be with the knowledge that Jesus defeated them (Col. 2:15). Therefore, we can reign over them.
God made the earth and everything in it. He then gave Adam dominion over all the works of His hands. In other words, Adam was the god of this world until he committed high treason against God and sold out to Satan. Adam didn't have the moral right to commit treason, but he had the legal right to do so.

THERE IS A LOT of negativity in our world today. People are angry, impatient, and rude. Say one wrong thing and they fly off the handle. Research shows that there's a new phenomenon called "internet anger." They've found that ANGER IS THE MOST VIRAL EMOTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA. If you want to get people riled up, put an angry post on social media and that anger will spread like a fire.
Sadly, many Christians have fallen into the anger trap. They are putting up mean posts and having full-blown arguments on social media and elsewhere. What happened to love?

THERE IS AN epidemic of people being unhappy with themselves! We concentrate on loving God and others, but what about ourselves? Jesus was once asked which of the Law's commandments was the most important. He replied:
MATTHEW 22:37–39 (NLT)
37 " 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.'
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

PEOPLE OFTEN BECOME fearful when diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Time and time again, I have seen fear grip people's hearts when doctors tell them that there is nothing more medical science can do for them.
I understand what it is like to receive bad news from a doctor. When I was 13 years old, I was having severe headaches. I found out that I had a brain tumor. It was about the size of my fist and was located at the base of my skull.

JESUS SAID that in the world you would face pressure. This is because Satan is the god of this world, and he is always out to pressure, test, and tempt you. It might be health pressure, financial pressure, ministry pressure, or family pressure. What you do when the pressure is on makes all the difference in your outcome.

LET'S FACE IT. No one is perfect. When you make a mistake, the enemy often tries to tell you that it's over! He wants you to throw in the towel. We all mess up. But it's not the end. God said that if you ask for forgiveness, it's yours, and you can go on. Our Heavenly Father is the God of second chances—and third, and fourth, and fifth, and sixth chances!

Kenneth W. Hagin opened A Call to Arms Men's Conference with a strong exhortation for men to see themselves as champions. It was a powerful time of bonding, brotherhood, and breakthrough. For three days in November, men listened to messages on their identity in Christ, the power of praise and humility, and enduring to the end. The weak left strong, the sick left healed, and men were transformed from the inside out. They were equipped and empowered to be everything God called them to be in today's world. Mark your calendars for A Call to Arms 2018, November 1–3.
IN 1990, Kenneth Moore received the heartbreaking news that his father had died. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) had cut short his dad's life.
As Kenneth and his wife, Brenda, were leaving the church after the home going service, a thought passed through his mind, "You're going to go the same way."
Kenneth sloughed off the thought. After all, he graduated from Rhema Bible Training College in 1989 and was full of faith. In 2004, he even began

DOES IT SEEM that your life is filled with crises? You handle one crisis, and just when you think you can catch your breath, another one crops up. I can totally identify! It seems that if I am not handling personal or ministry situations, I am supporting others that are fighting crises of their own.
What is the proper response to a crisis? As I was pondering this thought, several scriptures came to mind. Psalm 120:1 (NIV) says, "I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me." David was always experiencing crises in his life. As a shepherd, when he was protecting his sheep, he relied on God to
