A worker of the adversary came into the church Sunday morning, in the form of a little brown skinned woman. Ranting and raving while pointing her finger in the pastor’s face, spewing out words to the top of her voice calling him the devil. Telling him what he should do as far as him being a shepherd.
The choir just sang their second selection, and began to take their seats. When this little lady marching up and down the center aisle quoting what sounded like the word of God. The saints were giving God praise, but as the church begin to settle down and a hush came across the congregation. This lady piped up even more. Being disrespectful and disruptive as the pastor prayed.
The pastor then grabbed his microphone and came down from the pulpit to pray for this individual. Which angered her, it appeared. She got louder, as she told one of the mothers in the church not to touch her. She approached the pastor as close she could and began ranting and putting her finger in his face.
Pastor’s son attempted to push him aside, but pastor would not allow him to get involved. Pastor prayed, along with many others, we begin to praise the Lord. Worship went forward and the lady grabbed her things and exited the front doors. As praise continued, the spirit of the Lord begin to get more and more powerful.
We continued service, but upon exiting the church. This lady was across the street about a 200ft away, yelling and crying.
I had never seen this sort of behavior in a church house before. But it doesn’t surprise me because of the times we live in. The scriptures tells us in John 4:7-10 to; Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. Matthew 24:33
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13
There is a time of trouble that is soon to break upon this world, and the main force of it will be directed at God’s true commandment keeping people. This time of trouble was prophesied to happen by Daniel:
Daniel 12:1 …’And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.’
ENCOURAGE YOURSELF: Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Note that he comes in all forms. Watch and pray! Please read your bible, fast and pray, live a holy life, do away with evil thoughts and behavior. Study your bible so when praying or fighting the enemy you have scriptures to help you. Living holy will give you power. You must be able to cast the devil out and not be over taking.
