There are strongmen in the demonic kingdom--spirits that rule over individuals, families, cities, and nations. Scripture reveals there are also godly, angelic rulers assigned to watch over every family and nation. God has an army. He is the Lord of Hosts, the Lord of Armies. In Daniel 10 the command was issued for Michael to fight against the strongman holding the people of Israel in bondage. He came against the prince of Persia so God's people might be set free and return to their homeland. Before this event ever took place on Earth, it was accomplished in the heavenly realm. The powers of the demonic princes were broken by the angelic forces of the hosts of God, and it set the people of God free. In this teaching Frank Hammond explains that Jesus said his Church is now going to come against the rulers of the satanic kingdom. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Hammond.

One of The Economist's Books of the YearDavid D. Kirkpatrick, a correspondent for The New York Times, was banned from Egypt for writing this book: the definitive account of the turn back toward authoritarianism in Cairo and across the Middle East. Egypt has long set the paradigm for Arab autocracy. It is the keeper of the peace with Israel and the cornerstone of the American-backed regional order. So when Egyptians rose up to demand democracy in 2011, their 30 months of freedom convulsed the whole region. Now a new strongman, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, is building a dictatorship so severe some call it totalitarian. The economy sputters, an insurgency simmers, Christians suffer, and the Israeli military has been forced to intervene. But some in Washington - including President Trump - applaud Sisi as a crucial ally. Kirkpatrick lived with his family in Cairo through the revolution, the coup and the bloodshed that followed. Then he returned to Washington to uncover the American role in the tragedy. His heartbreaking story is essential to understanding the Middle East today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David D.
