About This Podcast
Our experience in the New Age affects the way we think about things like spiritual warfare and deliverance ministry.
Is this a good thing? Or is it bad?
In this episode I talk about spiritual warfare through Scripture and how it specifically relates to the New Age experience, “strategic level intercessory prayer,” deliverance ministry and discernment.

Scripture Discussed in This Podcast
Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness. – Matthew 10:1 (NLT)
Matthew 10:1 got me thinking about the casting out evil spirits part of this commissioning and what a specific situation this was.
When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!”
“Yes,” he told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.” – Luke 10:17-19 (NLT)
This is a broader application of the idea that followers of Jesus (this time disciples) can cast out demons but it is still a specific instance.
These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. – Mark 16:17 (NLT)
This line is falls in the end of Mark which some scholars question. I talk about this in the podcast. I am not comfortable with disregarding Scripture but I can see why Dr. Heiser advises us to not place our doctrine on this verse alone.
