Editors: Johann P. Arnason , Shmuel N. The overarching theme of the book is the historical meaning of the Axial Age, commonly defined as a period of several centuries around the middle of the last millennium BCE, and its cultural innovations. The civilizational patterns that grew out of this exceptionally creative phase are a particularly rewarding theme for comparative analysis. The book contains essays on cultural transformations in Ancient Greece, Ancient Israel, Iran, India and China, as well as background developments in the core civilizations of the Ancient Near East.
An introductory section deals with the history of the debate on the AxialAge, the theoretical questions that have emerged from it, and the present state of the discussion. The book will be useful for comparative historians of cultures and religions, as well as for historical sociologists interested in the comparative analysis of civilizations.
It should also help linking the fields of classical, biblical and Asian studies to broader interdisciplinary debates within the humanities sciences. Editor: Ralph L. Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion RSSSR publishes reports of innovative studies that pertain empirically or theoretically to the scientific study of religion, including spirituality, regardless of their academic discipline or professional orientation.
Programme to Combat Racism. Contact Sales. Programme to Combat Racism Its origin Since its inception, the WCC has taken a strong stance, namely that "any form of segregation based on race, color or ethnic origin is contrary to the gospel and is incompatible with the Christian doctrine of man and with the nature of the church of Christ" WCC Evanston Assembly, He'll let you succeed, that you might further fall.
He will let you get away with sin, that sin might greatly entrap and then snare you. He is quite content to be patient. He has great power. It is sheer folly to underestimate the power of the devil, or to doubt his power. Why do we need deliverance? Acts and Ephesians speak of the power of Satan. He has supernatural power, dark power, devilish power, unholy power, chilling power. His power and craft are great and armed with cruel hate. On earth is not his equal.
When Lucifer fell, He took one-third of the angels with him. Today we call them demons, and Satan is lord of them.
Through his demon spirits, he not only controls individuals, but literally works to control nations. So often at the UN, at the negotiating table, the devil is an unseen presence. If you question that, consider this:. We must understand just how dangerous our enemy is. The Bible teaches that in the last days there will be a resurgence of demonic power, destroying civilization as we know it.
I believe the world is about to enter into the Great Tribulation after the Rapture of the church. What will people be like during the Great Tribulation? Revelation Murder —look at the violence now in our streets and the unrepentant abortion rate. The devil is behind the drug culture, and the biggest pusher is the devil himself.
Fornication — Satan is a destructive force through all forms of media and the internet. Sexual sin dominates the world of music, movies and TV.
Destroy the Works of the Enemy
Almost all sex on television is outside of marriage. Remember the Ezekiel passage we looked at, which some scholars believe may indicate that Lucifer was also particularly gifted in music. Much of rock music glorifies drugs, sex, and even devil worship. Here the apostle Paul is lamenting the presence of false teachers who appeared in the early church and began wielding influence.
Thievery : graft, greed, corruption, bribery—they run the gamut from politicians and corporate titans down to the smallest embezzlement from an employer. Turn to 1Timothy They preach another Christ than the Christ of the Bible. The devil has warped and twisted the minds of people as he has denied, perverted and twisted the Word of God.
All this looks very grim, and it is. The kingdom does not belong to Satan ultimately. It belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ. He legally purchased it back with His own blood at Calvary. The Resurrection put Gods seal upon the contract! Are your sins under the blood of Christ? Are you saved by the power of the blood? Jesus breaks the power of cancelled sin, as the hymn says. His blood can make the foulest clean. His blood availed for me. Even if it costs me my life. We overcome the devil when we who have received Christ as Lord and Savior take up and put on the whole armor of God.
You know this: Before any pilot—commercial, private, or Air Force fighter jet—takes off, he runs through a checklist. Here is your checklist! Notice he says here the whole armor, not just part of it. A soldier protected in one spot but vulnerable in another was going to be killed. Any time God says something once, we should pay attention. But when he repeats it twice in one paragraph , we should sit up and be on the alert! The antidote for that is the truth. What did the helmet protect? The head. The mind.
He gets our thinking processes warped and tangled up when we are not seeing life through the prism of the Word of God. How does salvation protect our minds, our thinking? Salvation gives us an entirely new worldview. Did you know that the Word of God is a sword, able to take out the enemy? It is! In all this armor, note that the Word of God Sword of the Spirit is our only offensive weapon.
All the other armor is protective. But this armor goes on the offense. The Word of God is your best offensive weapon. This is why you need to be 1 Reading the Word daily and 2 committing it to your memory. This is why Bible memorization for children is so important.
Get that Sword firmly in their grasp while they are young. The point is: Quoting Scripture out loud to the devil is a battle cry he dreads. Make his minions shrink from you when you begin wielding the Sword of the Spirit and brandishing it boldly! Speak His Word to the devil. Speak it out loud. Get specific! Be intent! Here are your weapons against the devil.
Here is how you overcome him:. The Blood of the Lamb Are you saved? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? If so, you are under the blood and clothed in His righteousness. He sets the prisoner free! His blood can make the foulest clean! The devil hates the blood of Jesus Christ and recoils from it.
The Word of your testimony Speak it boldly. Testify directly to the devil and his minions what God has done for you. Remind them: They are already a defeated foe! The Armor of God Consciously put on the armor. Dress yourself for the battle. Everyone can do that if you choose to. Because if we can keep them from praying, we can beat them every time.
But if they pray, they'll beat us every time. Long-range missiles. Short-range missiles. Which missiles have been fired recently and how far they can reach. But Adrian Rogers has famously compared prayer to a guided missile. You may want to print this off and tape it to your mirror or place it in your Bible as a reminder that you literally have at your fingertips a guided missile against the devil.
Prayer is like an intercontinental ballistic missile. This kind of prayer is unstoppable. The devil can't stop me from praying. He cannot keep my prayers from being heard. And he cannot keep God from answering. Are you saved? Then you need not fear! You need not flee! You can stand in the name of Jesus. But you're not going to stand apart from prayer. The battle is won through the blood of the Lamb, the word of your testimony, the armor of God, the sword of the Sprit, and prayer.

But he is not there yet. His Personality 2. His Position 5. Turn to 2 Corinthians What does the Bible call the devil here? How did he get to be the devil?
Did God create the devil? What happened? Isaiah tells us. The last part of verse13 reads: …the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Verses pronounce his judgment, an end that will finally occur in Revelation , when he and his minions are cast into the lake of fire: 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
His Chief Weapon Deception. His Mode of Operation His method is the lie. He deceives that he might deprave, destroy, and damn.
