KAWAM How Unfortunate How unfortunate that the author listened to her friends and tried to write a novel around what is, undoubtedly, most interesting research into archeological crime. No way! Deception 6: Demons "shmeemons". All this demon talk is crazy mumbo jumbo. Demons have nothing to do with my sinful obsessions. I just need to be more disciplined and fight harder for holiness.
This is the only deception I want to push-back on today.
California pastor, Jack Hayford, said it this way, "You can't disciple a demon and you can't cast out the flesh. The reason we can't ever seem to get free from certain sinful, habitual, compulsions isn't because we don't want free.
And it isn't because we haven't been disciplined enough or prayed enough or tried hard enough. It's because we are captive to a demonic stronghold. We need deliverance as well as discipleship. Question 4: How can we gain freedom from demonic deception? Answer 4: Follow the process I outline below:. Wise up. Read, receive and apply Bible truth. The most neglected weapon in spiritual warfare is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God - Ephesians It crushes the enemy. Tear down.
Review what you believe. Reject anything that does not square with plain Bible-truth. That's how you destroy demonic strongholds:. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. Demonic spirits will fight you every inch of the way. But the truth always wins! Believing the truth is another potent weapon in spiritual warfare: the belt of truth and the shield of faith - Ephesians , 16 - will protect you and help you stand firm.
Step out. Pray and declare. Again, this is a powerful weapon in spiritual warfare - Ephesians You'll need to do this verbally and out loud. Father, I approach your throne of mercy in the name of Jesus. I can see that I've been leaving a door open in my life to the attacks of lying spirits. I confess that I lack faith and knowledge of your Word so I am vulnerable to demonic deception.
Forgive me and help me walk in the freedom of your truth from now on. Satan and all lying spirits, I bind you in the mighty name of Jesus. I resist you and I reject your lies. I stand in Christ and in his truth. You must go now. The door to my mind and heart is closed.
Some things never change: Today, God offers us spiritual fullness in Christ - he's all we need - but there are so many deceptive teachings that turn us away from Jesus. Cancel anytime. Your stronghold in my life is broken in Jesus' name.

I have overcome you by the blood of the Lamb. Your stronghold in my life is broken in Jesus' name.
Father, thank you for the victory I have in Christ. Help me to walk in the new life he has given me. Please give me a hunger for your Word and the self-discipline to read, study, receive, and apply it.

I pray all this in the name of my God and Savior, Jesus Christ. My email junk file is full of scams. Google filters them all out, but sometimes I take a look - just for laughs. Apparently, there is a prince in exile who will pay me a million bucks if I'll let him deposit his fortune in my bank account for safe keeping.
Taking on the uneducated, working-class but gifted Smith as his assistant, Rawlinson schools him in matters both archaeological and unethical. What to do if your dig is not as productive as you had hoped?
Buy artifacts on the black market. Having trouble with a translation? Make it up. Research challenged by colleagues? Discredit theirs.
As if forgery were not enough, Rawlinson also dabbles in anti-Semitism and racism. Oppert vacillates from being a main to a secondary character, but he is probably the most fascinating of the long list of them. The author occasionally allows her characters to engage in long, dull conversations, rehashing events that occurred off-screen, but otherwise she manages to create a mainly interesting mystery.
