I just started doing this but my book reviews will now consist of my highlights. The passages I underlined while reading. I believe I would want to see this from other people so I might as well give what I would want to receive.
"The normal Christian life is not supposed to be an exhausting wrestling match with a dead man, but is an abundant, joy-filled life with God, salted with an occasional season of strong resistance from our archenemy."
"You have to make an effort to sin because it is no longer your nature"
"And third, we probably did nothing wrong to cause the battles. As a matter of fact, we are usually in a battle because we are doing something right"
"The devil hates to see restoration in any area of our lives or in the lives of others."
"When we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by circumstances or situations, it can be a sign that we have traveled outside our metron, exposing the low places of our walls."
"An idol is anything you trust more than you trust God, or anything you have to check with before you say yes to God."
"Prophecy is one of God's most destructive weapons against the lies of the enemy that isolate us and separate us from the body".
"Prophecy is like a nuclear weapon in the hands of a believer."
"It is tough enough to be in such an intense battle that you cannot see the forest for the trees. But it is stupid to set the forest on fire with our tongues."
"We do not produce righteousness we protect it"
"He is telling us that listening to the Holy Spirit and prophetically proclaiming what he says is our only offensive weapon of warfare."
"Any time we turn to the devil's devices to solve the issues of our soul, we step out from under the umbrella of God's protection and become vulnerable to the elements."
"We are in Christ,therefore we carry his authority into every circumstance, every geographic location and every situation.
"It is time that we give our children more than a Happy Meal. We need to teach them how to deal with the destructive forces of evil from the time they are little."
"It is hard to imagine, but I am convinced that demons are more afraid of children than they are of adults. There is something about childlike faith and innocence that God protects in an extraordinary way."
"Witch-hunting in our souls plays right into the schemes of the devil. He is not called the accuser of the brethren for nothing. He is the master re possessor, convincing people that their new found freedom is undeserved."
"On a personal level, if you have the gift of discernment and you sit next to someone troubled by an evil spirit of pornography, you most likely will experience pornographic thoughts or pictures while you are in that person's space."
"I think many Christians with a strong gift of discernment are diagnosed with a bipolar disorder because they do not know they are gifted. They think they are experiencing mood swings, but they do not understand that they are simply sensing the spiritual atmosphere in a particular metron."
"When you have a strong negative opinion about someone do not trust your gift of discernment."
"I have watched people try to overcome their fear of an evil spirit by yelling at the demons to come out. Raising your voice will not increase your authority. Demons do not respond to anger, manipulation or control. They only respond to authority."
"The demons have to leave when we unearth the root cause of their attraction."
"When camping in dangerous places, it is often recommended that you keep a campfire going to keep the predators away. When we set our hearts on fire, demonic predators stay out of our camp."
