Check Mate? Don't Move!
Written by Jim Staley

What do you do when your back is up against the wall, you're out of options, and you don't know what to do?

If we're not faced with a pit of snakes, we're faced with flinging, fancy swords coming at us from every direction. If we're not facing giant boulders chasing us back down the very mountain we just climbed, we wake up tied to an altar with some evil guy trying to reach into our chest and take our heart out for his dinner.

Seated Together in Heavenly Places

Seated Together in Heavenly Places
Written by Jim Staley

Now that we are starting to understand the difference between the soul and the spirit of a man, the difference between the “spiritual” Word and the “physical” Word, the desire of the Spirit for us to receive the wisdom and revelation of the knowledge of Him, we can continue in Ephesians chapter two and discover where this authority and spirit man actually reside.
