Welcome

The word "devarim" is an English transliteration of the Hebrew word for "words" (sometimes also transliterated "debarim"). I chose this name for my site due to my avid interest in all things relating to the Word of God (both the Living Word, Jesus, and the written word, the Bible). Since a large portion of the Bible (most of the Old Testament) is written in Hebrew, I have been learning this beautiful language in the hope that, one day, I will be able to grasp the richer meanings of the original text that are all too often lost in translation. This site will be used as a repository for all things relating to the Word of God, including my own writings - hence the name "devarim" or "words"!

Please note that, where I link to articles in other websites, or where I link to the home pages of websites, this does not mean that I necessarily endorse everything that is included on those web sites. I merely include links where I believe useful insights can be gleaned towards a fuller and deeper understanding of the spectacular and holy Word of God. I very much subscribe to the way of the Bereans in Acts 17:11, and encourage you all to do the same... don't take anything that anyone says/writes on board without first checking the Scriptures to "see if these things are so."

Author: Mike Wright

5 of 8: Justin Peters interviews Pastor & Author Jim Osman on the subject of Spiritual Warfare and Jim’s book: "Truth or Territory: A Biblical Approach to Spiritual Warfare". In this episode, Justin and Jim talk about the unbiblical practice of “Spiritual Mapping” which is also known as strategic level spiritual warfare (SLSW).

Though common in many churches - even many non-charismatic churches - these are dangerous and unbiblical practices built upon Scripture verses that have NOTHING at all to do with SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
