The spirit realm is real. Demons, angels, and the universal laws at play in this dimension impact us daily. For too long, we have neglected the invisible war being waged for our souls in this realm. In this teaching, Michael Miller unpacks some simple yet profound truths about the spirit realm and how to walk in victory from our common enemies. Miller, along with Bob Randall, teach on 3 spiritual doors that many believers leave open resulting in demonic oppression and bondage. Find freedom through these teachings and apply life giving truths to your life. For it’s truth that sets us free by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus asked an obvious question to a sick man in John 5 when he said, “Do You Want To Get Well?” Yet the man did not say “YES!” His answer was sourced from discouragement, confusion, and lifelong excuses. Many believers do the same thing today. In this teaching, Michael Miller along with Sharla Brenneman give understanding to why this happens. They reveal how wounds and trauma impact our hearts and how they skew our perspective of God crippling us from receiving the needed grace and mercy He is ready to give us. If a believer sees Jesus incorrectly, we won’t entrust our broken hearts and receive the healing we need. God is the only source for healing of our traumatic heart wounds. God wants to Father us, Jesus wants to Heal us and Holy Spirit wants to mother us.
Michael Mauldin and Sharla Brenneman share their personal testimonies towards forgiveness from the heart. Forgiveness from the heart is absolutely necessary for us to be free from the self imposed, tortured prisons of unforgiveness. In this sermon, Michael and Sharla share keys to really forgiving from the heart as well as some of the hang ups and beliefs that keep us from being free. Jesus is our model for forgiveness! Key Scriptures are: Matthew 18:21-35, Luke 23:34, Hebrews 12:15, John 12:24, and Romans 12:17-18
F R E E D O M is the point. Jesus came to liberate everyone. Yet his definition of freedom is oftentimes different than ours. In this teaching, Michael Miller clearly lays out why freedom is the reason Christ came, what freedom is for the believer, and how to get free. It’s raw, vulnerable, and transparent, including his own personal journey into freedom from sexual brokenness.
When the troubles of life come our way a tendency is to hide who we really are, focus on the negative, and in this process we get stuck in winter wilderness seasons. In this sermon Michael Mauldin shares the parable of the Groundhog, highlights Israel’s own Groundhog season in 1 Sam 13 & 14, and how this relates to our own lives following the journey of Jonathan and his armor bearer through the narrow place into victory.
Terry Lindsey (UR Dallas Elder) and Miller share a pastoral word directed to the Upper Room family. It was clear Holy Spirit was directing the shepherds to address specific and abnormal demonic warfare surrounding the Upper Room community specifically within the family unit. This podcast is less a teaching and more of an insight into our family.
Jesus so values the “real estate” of your heart that He died to live in it. When He speaks, He speaks to your heart. As it says in Hebrews, today if you hear His voice, don’t harden your heart. This message will help you identify any barriers (post it notes) you have to hearing Him in your heart.
Peter Louis continues the series from the week before by sharing how the Gospel not only cleanses us from sin but allows to become partakers of the divine nature. This new nature allows us to walk in intimacy with Jesus while effortlessly bearing fruit for the kingdom of heaven.
Peter Louis discusses the launch of his new book, Back to the Gospel: Reviving the Church through the Message that Birthed It. He shares his heart for the church to come back to the beauty and power of the Gospel and to discover the all sufficient power of the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from sin and bring us close to God.
We don’t like to be weak. Weakness is not celebrated, encouraged or pursued. We cover up, hide, and often overlook our weaknesses. Yet, God loves our weaknesses and chooses our weakness to bring forth His strength and glory. Miller teaches on the Biblical definition of pride and how to embrace your weakness.
