Episode 120 Our Greatest Enemy What is our greatest enemy? Is it Satan? The World? Those who say they hate Christians?

Episode 117 The Church at Prayer Prayer is one of the great mysteries in the working of God. It defies human logic, but it is at the center of our warfare against the enemy.

In our last program we introduced this subject b…
 
Episode 110 Is the church Spiritual Israel? Is the church Spiritual Israel? We know that God has used Israel in a very significant way in His working in the past.
