HOW ARE CHRISTIANS RECOGNIZED?
“The born-again Christian is not recognized by the fact that he always carries the Bible with him or by the number of meeting he attends. In the spiritual world (or the spirits’ world), Christians are recognized by the LIGHT that shines continually like a very bright votive candle in their hearts, or like a halo of light around their heads, or like a wall of fire around them. When the Christian was walking, we could see angels walking together with him, one at his right hand and another one at his left hand and yet another one behind him. For this reason, it was impossible for us to come close to him/her. The only way we could succeed was to make him sin, and by this he opened a door for us to enter. When a Christian was driving a car and we wanted to harm him, we could see that he/she was never alone in the car; there was always an angel next to him/her. Of, if only the Christian knew everything that God has in store for him, he wouldn’t pollute himself with sin and wouldn’t live carelessly!” (Excerpt from an account of an ex-agent of satan).
“Just for one Christian, the devil can decide to ruin a lot of souls, thinking that he can kill him, but he always fails. This kind of incidents happen to a lot of Christians without them knowing it, but God always sets them free. The problem is that THE DEVIL DOESN’T GIVE UP. His thoughts always sound like this: ‘I can do this’, but he never succeeds. As long as the Christian walks in THE LOVE of God and abides in His love and doesn’t get involved in the things of this life, the devil will NEVER succeed, no matter how strong his attempts are. Only the unbeliever is at his disposal.”
WHEN LEADERS LOOSE THEIR COURAGE, CHURCH LOOSES ITS POWER.
The relationship between the church leaders and the church members is a great mystery. When you see that the pastor is full of love, faith, joy, because he is not afraid of any bad report, of any disease or demonic attack, then the church gets strong and stays strong, because the leaders are full of courage and faith.
But when leaders only preach sermons and have no solutions to the problems in the church, nor courage to confront, nor faith, where does the church go to find help?
This is why, nowadays, churches need leaders FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, WITH PASSION FOR GOD AND WITH LOVE AND THE SPIRIT OF A SERVANT FOR THE PEOPLE.
Let’s pray for this situation and not judge them.
Let’s pray that they will be so motivated and searched by so many unsolved problems, that they will reach that moment of DESPAIR, of FIGHT and say: “Lord, change me, transform me, or take my life away as Moses also said, but save this people…”
It’s not only the leaders who are guilty, but also the people who don’t “do their homework”…
It’s EASY to just sit down and listen to a sermon and then judge it. But what do you do to see a change in your life and the life of others? How much do you insist upon the WORD, PRAYER, FASTING AND INTERCESSION FOR ALL PEOPLE?
We ALL need CHANGE, REVIVAL, SINCERE REPENTANCE, FILLING with the Holy Spirit, so that we can be witnesses for CHRIST.
The earth today needs to see THE POWER of Christ manifested through us.
Now, in this time of crisis, the church is called to pray, fight and be the one that brings SOLUTIONS and ANSWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
When the Church of Christ is not light and is not filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, disaster comes. The evil one is free to have his own ways, because nobody (or too few) disturb him.
Revival comes for those who sincerely SEEK God and are willing to work for the advance of His Kingdom.
But NOTHING will happen if we do NOTHING for God.
Instead of criticizing, judging and complaining, let’s all TURN OUR HEARTS TO GOD, in fasting and prayer and ask Him to give us His heartbeat for the lost world who is in deep and bitter suffering. You can make summer only with one swallow. You can change the life and destiny of one person, if you care and you have the heart AND LOVE OF JESUS.
