The Bible warns [parents] against extremes in dealing with our adult children. It tells us to avoid trying to control [them] once they become adults. When children become independent, a major transition takes place: They are no longer under our authority.
The Life that's within us is not only a creative Life, but it's part of His own Life. That's the reason we have the authority to speak to a devil, 'cause it's God's own creative Life, if you're anointed. Correctly. Not you, it's not you that speaketh, but the Father that dwelleth in you.
I have had the privilege of preaching the Gospel on every continent in most of the countries of the world, and I have found that when I present the simple message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with authority, quoting from the very Word of God-He takes that message and drives it supernaturally into the human heart.
How would you judge the lawfulness or unlawfulness of 'pleasure?' Use this rule: Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sight of God, takes from you your thirst for spiritual things or increases the authority of your body over your mind, then that thing to you is evil. By this test you may detect evil no matter how subtly or how plausibly temptation may be presented to you.
