Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media, was raised in a Pentecostal pastor's home. But it was also a home that, he says, was not politically active.
On a recent episode of Prophetic Spiritual Warfare on the Charisma Podcast Network, Strang tells prophet and deliverance minister Kathy DeGraw that the situation when he grew up was very different than it is now. But, as a Spirit-filled Christian, a leader, a journalist and the author of four books on Donald Trump, Strang believes today's church needs to wake up to the realities of what is happening in the spiritual realm.
The problems we see in our nation today are not just cultural but "examples of spiritual warfare, where people call right things that are wrong and things are wrong that are really right. in terms of biblical principles and what God wants," Strang says. "And we Christians have to stand up. I'm very concerned about the passivity in the church."
He adds, "Now in Pentecostal circles and certainly in the early days of the charismatic movement, deliverance from demons was a big thing, and people would pray to get victory over the demon of nicotine or alcoholism or some other kind of addiction or anger.
"And I know personally people who have been gloriously delivered, but I can remember having discussions with other Christian leaders and saying, 'Those are the easy demons,'" he says. "The real demons are what they call the principalities and powers and rulers in high places that control entire cultures and countries.'"
And that's what is happening in our country, Strang believes. To hear more of his discussion with Kathy DeGraw on this episode of Prophetic Spiritual Warfare, listen to the entire podcast here.
