Back in the 1970s or ’80s, there were numerous reports of satanic crimes; however, the public believed the lie that such things do not happen. I believe God is beginning to expose what is really going on in this world, the demonic agenda that is supernatural and real.
There are strange things happening to the earth and its creatures. There are political upheavals and bad financial crises worldwide. There are also people who believe that God is evil and the devil is good. Those people pray against Christians. In fact, many of them pray more often to their god than most Christians pray to the one true God. The good news is that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. He said, “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you” (Luke 10:19).

Unfortunately, the things they told us don’t happen are happening. The demonic realm seems emboldened, presumably because they know their time is running out, as Jesus is coming soon. It is time for Christians to get serious about following God and about walking in the authority of Christ. Let us not become victims of demonic harassment; rather, let us walk boldly in that authority and set the captives free. Pray. Lay hands on the sick. Exercise the gifts of the Spirit. If Jesus is coming soon, we might as well just go for it and see God’s supernatural power work through us. However, do not forget to remain in the Secret Place, securely attached to the vine, which is Christ.
Maranatha – our Lord is coming!
