Powerful Ministry in Ephesus: Acts 19:19-22
Scripture: Acts 19:19-22
In this class we study how lucrative secret information about the world of the spirits has been throughout history. Those who turned to Christ publically burned their books which had great value. Those who peddle occult secrets claim to hold the key to averting bad fate. The gospel is not based on techniques to manipulate spirits or curses, but on having a relationship with Jesus Christ through the gospel. The people in Ephesus rejected the occult. We explain how deceived people still promote secret information and techniques to break curses and cast out demons. There are many who do so in the name of Christ and become wealthy in the process. Others are not motivated by money, but still teach techniques and secret information that claims to give people freedom from demons or curses. The truth is that believers have been transferred from domain of darkness through a relationship with Christ. We have access to the throne of grace and do not need secret information or a professional exorcist.
