Theantric Action

Since the inception of the church, Christians have struggled with the dilemma of representing the infinite God to mankind. The process of theantric action is the only provision whereby Christians are able to manifest the true nature of God in their mortal bodies within the Body of Christ and to...

Righteous Only Through Him

The depravity of the human heart must be reckoned with: “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) Modern man is very reluctant to acknowledge his unrighteousness. He turns from God’s provisions to self-defense mechanisms and support systems to prove he is...

Transformed by the Word

Examples of people who were transformed by the indwelling Christ are seen throughout the Word of God. In Mark 5:15, the demon-possessed maniac became a calm, quiet disciple. John, once a vindictive Jew, was supernaturally transformed into the apostle of love. The Samaritan woman of ill repute met Jesus at...
