As we seek to understand the unseen our focus is always on God. But we must also be aware of the negative spiritual forces that exist. These forces have impacted the world and have also wrongly impacted the lives of many Christians. The good news is that we can be set free.
On April 2nd, David J. Jones will be helping us sort through the myths and misunderstandings pertaining to the demonic realm. We will discuss Kingdom theology, what spiritual warfare really means and learn when and how the Bible says we should respond. Join us as we gather in a place of safety and confidence in knowing that He is with us. Let no other stand against us.
Conference outline follows below…
SESSION 1: MYTH, MAGIC AND MAKEBELIEVE
In this section, David will discuss the prevalent misconceptions about the kingdom of darkness, and some of the history behind these ideas.
There will be a background teaching on pagan thoughts and ideas such as Gnosticism, magic, astrology and the idea of Rome as a deity.
As well, a background teaching on Hebrew thought, and a comparison of the Pharisees, Sadducees and popular thought will be covered.
SESSION 2: THE CHURCH AND THE POWERS
Here David will explain territorial spirits, giving Biblical examples and outline the affects of the work on the Cross; namely that these powers have been disarmed.
He will also discuss the idea of authority, where it lies and the principle of resisting evil. He will teach on the nature of possession, exorcism and deliverance.
SESSION 3: THE CHURCH AND THE POWERS (CON’T.)
In this continuation of Session 2, there will be a more detailed explanation of principalities and powers including a look at hollow and deceptive philosophy, darkness and light, the supremacy of Christ, the principle of standing behind and the power encounter.

Saul (1 Sam.16:14-23)
