Kickin' the Devil Out!

After tonight’s service at the youth camp in Montgomery, Alabama, one young man came up to me and hugged my neck and said, “Thanks for helping me kick the Devil out of my life!” I would say that was the theme of the night. After I preached on the blood of Jesus, the young people answered the call, surrendered to Jesus and kicked the Devil out of their lives. One guy was dramatically delivered of demon possession while many looked on. They had never seen anything like it before. Several young people testified to me of being personally set free from addictions and compulsions including homosexuality, pornography and self-mutilation. When I see what Satan is doing to the youth, it makes me all the more determined to preach the yoke-destroying message of the Gospel which is the only answer for this generation. Sometimes when it comes to demons and demon possession, most people immediately think of the third world...India, Africa or Haiti. But the truth is that even in the refined cultures of western civilization, demonic activity is just as rife and often happens right under our noses. We may diagnose it as some medical disorder and treat it with drugs or psychotherapy, but there is only one real solution. We have to do what these young people have done tonight through the power of the blood of Jesus. We have to kick the Devil out!

Hey Dan! Elijah told me yesterday at CCF that Daddy is in Paris, where the french fries are! He also informed me that he will be naming his baby brother Elijah.

We're praying for you!
