Taken by Force
"And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force". (Matthew 11:12) There are forces of evil which oppose God’s word and His work. We see the hands of satan working against God and His church in this world. As the people of God obtain an awareness of the kingdom of God, they will receive and activate power; to do, to be, and to speak in the power and authority given by God. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the rulers of the darkness of this world. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they might have life and that they may have it more abundantly.
This class will discuss the battle of good and evil, light and darkness, salvation and damnation, the importance of the awareness, and understanding of the kingdom of God, in contrast with satan’s kingdom. It is the goal and desire for each participant to leave this class with a deliberate and purposeful determination to operate in the God given power to reach the lost and snatch the souls from the grips and hands of the enemy.
