God gave to us a mind, will, and emotions.

And then He gave us a spirit that has a conscience, a God awareness; that has the same 5 senses as the body and that help us live in relationship with the spirit realms - both demonic and heavenly.

8 truths that transform how we view our authority in Christ. In this podcast I share the importance of Christians understanding their spiritual authority. #Foundational #spiritualauthority #Gideon #stewardship

Have you ever picked up a book, having never read it, but knowing something wasn't right about it?

That is your spiritual senses at work; and God created us to discern evil, not learn evil. That is why God put the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the midst of the Garden.

God never intended for the human race to know good and evil.

He gave to us a triune being, just as He is a triune being, so that we would discern evil, not learn evil; because when you learn evil, it creates a curiosity that will draw you to it.

"Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.”

Alexander Pope

8 Transforming Truths About Your Authority in Christ

"What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels (Elohim), And You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet" Psalm 8:4-6 Emphasis mine

  • God made you in amazement and honor
    • With value and worth
    • God created us to rule and reign with Him
  • We were created to be stewards over what God made
    • Sin damaged that
    • Jesus reversed what sin did
