Unclean Spirits

Demons are evil or unclean spirits (cf. Mk 1:23 with Mk 1:32-34; Rev 16:13-16), and are fallen angels, servants of Satan (Mt 12:26-27; 25:41). There is only one devil, but myriads of demons who serve the devil and make his power practically universal. A demoniac (Mk 5:1-20) is a person whose personality has been invaded by one or more demons, who at will can speak and act through their human victim,…

Under A New Law

Dr. Mitchell was impressing upon us that we are not under the Law when we’re in Christ, but we’re under a new law—the law of LOVE. He used this to illustrate:

Under God's Watchful Eye

Let us not be like the two little boys on the hilltop, one of whom was up a tree stealing apples and the other watching to make sure they were safe from observation. They were blissfully unaware that someone watched them through a telescope several miles away, noting each motion and even the guilty expression of their faces as plainly as if he had been in the tree with them. How absurd for the boys…

Under Seige

Theologians tell a story to illustrate how Christ’s triumph presently benefits our lives: Imagine a city under siege. The enemy that surrounds they city will not let anyone or anything leave. Supplies are running low, and the citizens are fearful.

But in the dark of the night, a spy sneaks through the enemy lines. He has rushed to the city to tell the people that in another place the main enemy…

Under The Wagon

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of corn in the road. The former who lived nearby came to investigate. “Hey, Willis,” he called out, “forget your troubles for a spell and come on in and have dinner with us. Then I’ll help you get the wagon up.” “That’s mighty nice of you,” Willis answered, “But I don’t think Pa would like me to.”…
