Halloween. Two.

Authority over the Enemy.

All Hallows is the traditional time to point out that God has more power over the darkness, demonic, evil and wickedness in this world! It is also a time of dressing up and having fun with our children?

For believers we are reminded of the struggles that we face everyday and we see and know that God through the Holy Spirit has given us the authority to rebuke the Devil, knowing that he will flee from us.

Gods love for this world can only truly be found in His one and only son Jesus, who went of His own choice to the cross to die for our failures! His resurrection from the grave made the victory of taking away the sting of death! The world fears many things, but there is no fear in Love, in Jesus love.

Halloween. One.

A night for the Devil?

Based on north-European paganism, Halloween/All Hallows has become a time in the Christian calendar to remember that we believers have a daily adversary  who is out to get us at every cost, to take from us our assurance of trust in Jesus.

Satan, the Devil and His demonic host are as real, we see their handy work in the world everyday, terrorism, corruption, starvation, child abuse, intimidation, violence, gangs, criminal activity, murder, drugs and alcohol abuse?

But with Jesus we have the authority to rebuke the enemies attacks on us and he will flee, if we refuse to give into temptations!

Refugees. One.

From Africa.

It is sad to say it, but the real victums of the many disasters on this continent are the poor people who have been left behind? The boat people off the coast of Libya are the rich, who can afford to get out, but they face much exploitation by those who traffick people.

Many countries in Europe today do not want these migrant refugees, because they know they are a drain on their resources and yet many are professionsal who will fill those undesirabable jobs?

Many Europeans had to leave between 1800 up to the present to go to both the United States of America and Canada, in effect invading another peoples land and exploiting them? But today too many excuses are to be found in refusing people from this, that and the other.

Numbers 11:5,  Deuteronomy 7:18,  Matthew 16:9,  Mark 8:18,  Hebrews 13:3,  Revelation 2:5.

Finding comfort in the Bible. Part-Three.

Knowing God.

The world claims that it wants to find peace, this is the solution to all of humanities problems? But the more it claims peace, the more it does war? We often hear people in the Middle-East and Africa say, ”That they are a peace loving people, and tomorrow they chop off the heads of their prisoners in the name of God?

When we come to know God, through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, we have been set free from legalism and idolatry into a New Life relationship! And now that we are in this New place, we understand by the Power of the Holy Ghost/Spirit within us that we have a peace and a hope that the world can never have because of their open rebellion and rejection of God!
