How to Shield 🛡️ Your Children from the Occult 👁️ 😈 | Ephesians 5:11
Ephesians 5:11-13 says:“Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.” (NKJV)Most countries, states, or provinces recognize that the parents of a child are the natural guardians of the child.A guardian is one who guards or protects.We are to guard, to protect our children!And yet, in a culture that is rampant with luciferian and occult indoctrination and influence, how can we do that effectively?It is crucial for parents to understand that Luciferian Child trafficking doesn’t begin once the child is abducted; it begins through generational conditioning. It begins with getting parents to let their guards down. It began with decades of occult propaganda through the media, witchcraft, satanic objects and curses to be allowed into the homes of unsuspecting folks.In this week's episode, we set out on exposing these occult tactics that the elite are using against our children to keep them from the light of Christ.We tackle cartoons on TV and movies, video games, toys, symbolism on children's clothing, and much, much more!You'll definitely want to share this episode to spread the awareness!As always,Be blessed and thrive on!Sebastien & ElisabethP.S. Parental advisory: The content of this podcast is NOT for children.

Intentionality 🚀 and the Believer 🕇
In his bestselling book, The 15 laws of Growth, John Maxwell lists intentionality as the first and most important law of personal growth.The law of intentionality states that growth doesn’t just happen.Whether you’re seeking... Intellectual growthFinancial growthSpiritual growthOr even physical (muscles) growthIt will require intentionality. You won’t become smarter or more knowledgeable by accident or prayer alone. You won’t become richer by accident or by prayer alone. You won’t become a strong believer by accident or by prayer alone. And you surely won’t have the physique of a bodybuilder by accident or prayer alone.These things require purposeful planning and action. They require intentionality.And yet, there are many believers who think that it will all happen supernaturallycfor them. They think that if they believe enough for it, or pray enough for it, or decree enough for it, their lives will transform supernaturally. Well, in this week's podcast, I (Sebastien) will talk about the importance of intentionality in the life of the believer. And, yes, I'll probably step on some toes, but that's why you like this podcast, right?

The Devil 👿 Will Always Fight You 🥊 Over These 3 Disciplines 👇🏻
The word Disciple is from the word discipline. In other words, disciples are disciplined. As disciplined disciples, we need to implement habits in our walk with God.For years it was believed in the personal growth community that it takes 21 days to develop a habit. Recently however, some scientific studies and experiments have proven this to be a fallacy.According to Phillippa Lally; a health psychology researcher at University College London, a new habit usually takes a little more than 2 months — 66 days to be exact — and as much as 254 days until it’s fully formed.Yes, it probably takes this long to mortify the flesh.So, what are the 3 disciplines that the devil and his henchmen will do everything in their power to keep you from?Well, it’s not rocket science. You probably know them already...But just to be sure... you'd better listen anyway. ;)Oh, and I (Sebastien) also cover seven steps to develop a new habit to help you to be well on your way in resisting the devil!Be blessed and thrive on!

Pack Up Your Tent 🏕️ and Move On 🚶♂️!
1 Peter 2:11 says:"Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul."The definition of a pilgrim says: One who journeys in foreign lands. One who travels to a shrine or holy place as a devotee.A pilgrim is always on the move. A pilgrim doesn't stay put for long.While they may pitch their tent in one place, they never do it for too long.The Bible says that we are pilgrims on this earth. We are travelling through.But our journey doesn't strictly limit itself to our time on earth, but is also determined by our journey into truth.God has called each of us to be lifelong learners. To learn something new each step of the way with Him by our side.This means that as we learn and grow, we'll also embrace and abandon, learn and unlearn, consider and reconsider. Our knowledge base and understanding will change with each passing season. Sometimes, it may even change into something that's downright scary!Like Thomas Jefferson, we too should be able to say: "I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way."So, how far are YOU willing to change and adapt as God shows you new truths?

The TOP 6 Reasons People Leave Christianity
Last week, Paul Maxwell, a former Desiring God writer and the author of the book The Trauma of Doctrine, has announced he is no longer a Christian. It shocked a lot of people, and yet, he was only one more who bit the dust in the last couple of years.Since 2019, we have seen quite a few BIG names renounce their faith and basically leave Christianity.These BIG names are just the ones we know about. There are countless people who leave christianity, or churchianity, everyday.George Barna, wrote the book Churchless, which is about the growing trend of people foregoing church attendance.In an article about the book, he wrote:“The Number of Churchless Americans Has Jumped by Nearly One-Third in Just 20 Years."So... how can this be understood, or explained in any way? What causes people to "leave the faith"? Or perhaps they're just leaving... Churchianity?This is what we'll answer in this week's explosive episode!

Kingdom 👑 Leadership Series | Episode 8: Loving ❤️ People
As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series in this episode, we tackle the importance of loving others, or, as some versions of the Bible put it: charity, which is love in action.Jesus said to His disciples (and His future disciples): “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” ~John 13:34-35, NKJVBy commanding a level of love that goes above and beyond norm, Jesus established the cultural benchmark of the Kingdom. It is by this that others are to be stirred and enticed to become citizens themselves. In other words, they will know you by your fruit.Love is the overarching cultural characteristic of the Kingdom of God. By it, people feel the presence of the King, acknowledge His servants, and desire to become citizens themselves.As believers, we are to live as Kingdom citizens in such a way that it provokes questions for which the Gospel of Christ is the answer.Myles Munroe said:“The Kingdom is the love of God prevailing in politics, in business, in government, in media. It is all the impact of the laws of God creating a social environment where the strong help the weak, where those who have give to those who don't. It's a society where relationships are built on love.” ~Myles MunroeThere is no better way to expand the Kingdom of God than by genuinely loving people and adding value to them.When people feel loved and valued, they want to be around you more, and that’s when you can make them have an encounter with the living God. There is no Kingdom leadership or influence if love is absent.

Kingdom 👑 Leadership Series | Episode 7: Knowledge 🧠
What you don't know ''CAN'' hurt you Nobody is edified or led adequately when knowledge is absent.As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we now take a deeper look at the importance of knowledge.It has been my observation that knowledge in the body of Christ has suffered two major setbacks in recent years.It is scornedIt is ignoredThis reminds me of the quote by Mark Noll in his book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, which says, “The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind.” knowledge, or acquiring knowledge cannot be ignored as something that is trivial. This, is a deadly mistake that pleases the Enemy greatly.Kingdom leaders simply cannot be ignorant.Remember: Ignorance is not a sin, the desire to remain ignorant is.

Kingdom 👑 Leadership Series | Episode 6: Servant-Leadership 🛎️
What is Servant Leadership? Servant leadership. The first time I heard the term, I was in my twenties. While I understood where the term came from, and to a certain degree what it meant, I still had a long way to go in applying it.First of all, the term itself seems like a comical contradiction. The two words seem like they don’t belong together. And yet, for Kingdom leaders, it just fits in line with other Kingdom principles.The least we can say is that the Kingdom of God is, unlike most of our latest tech, counter intuitive. Indeed, the Kingdom is a system of…1. Exaltation through Humility (James. 4:10)2. Strength through Weakness (2 Corinthians 12:10)3. Freedom through Servitude (Romans 6:18)4. Gaining through Losing (Philippians 3:7-8)5. Living through Dying (John 12:24)6. Finding through Losing (Matthew 10:39)7. Receiving through Giving (Acts 20:35)And to that list, we could add Leading through serving.In this episode, we'll look at just how essential servant-leadership is in the Kingdom of God.How important is it, you ask?Well, as the old American Express ad used to say: Don't leave home without it.Nuff said.

Kingdom 👑 Leadership Series | Episode 5: Humility 😌
The pitfalls of pride & false humility Both Peter and James remind us in their respective epistles that “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”This week, as we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we will talk about the necessity and the benefits of humility. We’ll also address the pitfalls of pride and false humility.All great leaders in the Kingdom of God understood that without humility, there is no leadership in the Kingdom of God.But what is humility? Is humility thinking you are just a little higher than cow dung? Hardly. And yet, many religious people would have you believe this.The dictionary defines humility as: a modest or low view of one's own importance.Note how it doesn’t say a low view of one’s own capacity, or ability to contribute. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: freedom from pride or arroganceI like that even more.C.S. Lewis said: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”So, this week, we'll teach you how to think of yourself less.Hey... You're welcome! ;) Watch the Broadcast: [embed]https://youtu.be/wnoXj43tTUE[/embed] Don't miss our Live Brodcasts every Monday & Wednesday@ 7:30 p.m. EST on our YouTube Channel! sign up to our email list if you would like us to send you our weekly podcast and broadcast via email.

Kingdom 👑 Leadership Series | Episode 4: Count It All Joy 😊
What 4 Kingdom Leaders had to say about Joy There’s a kid’s song that we’re all familiar with called: Down in my HeartThe last couplet goes something like this:And if the devil doesn't like it he can sit on a tackSit on a tack,Sit on a tack,Sit on a tack,And if the devil doesn't like it he can sit on a tack to stay.Well, guess what…The results are in, and the survey says that indeed the devil doesn’t like it when a Believer has the joy of the Lord!This is why he tries desperately to steal it from you!There is an old story about the devil who was retiring from his work. He wanted to get rid of all his tools. He had a garage sale and displayed all his tools with a price tag. There were all kinds of tools like malice, hatred, jealousy, deceit, bitterness, pride, betrayal, adultery, cruelty, ungratefulness, and many more. All of them had its own price, some more expensive than others depending on its usefulness. But one of them was set apart marked with the highest price. When the devil was asked why this particular tool was the most expensive, he said, “Because this is my sharpest and the most useful tool; it is called depression. With depression I can do anything I want with anybody regardless of their education, religion, wealth or fame. It always works; it never fails.”Well, Joy is listed in Galatians as one of the fruit of the Spirit. If we did like the devil in the story, we too could set it apart with the highest price tag because with it, we can also do anything. Joy never fails.In this episode, we’re going to look at 4 great leaders in the Bible and what they said about joy.Friend, after this episode, you will count it all joy.
