London Blasts: the devil strikes again


The Bible teacher AR Bernard once said of the September 11 attacks, that what we see in the natural realm (ie this world) is a reflection of what is happening in the spirit realm.

Something huge happened then. Something huge happened today in London and in the spirit world.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Ephesians 6:12

As a Christian I believe that the End is near, that's why the devil is panicking, in a rage because he knows his time is short. So he will start using evil weapons like terrorism to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10).

This may have been a deed claimed by the Al-Qaeda but this is not a religious war. This is a war between good and evil. satan is using Islam as a tool to try to hit the Christian world, but Islam is not the enemy — the devil is.

Let's help in every way we can in the natural: send supplies, aid, encouragement.
But more importantly, for all believers reading this, let's PRAY. The powers and principalities of the spirit realm are destroyed by the power of God's word. If we destroy them in the spirit, they will not manifest in our world.

Put on the full armour of God as spelled out in Ephesians 6:10-18, so you can take your stand against the devil's schemes, not just in your life and in Singapore, but in all the world:
1. The belt of truth
2. The breastplate of righteousness
3. Feet fitted with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace
4. The shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one
5. The helmet of salvation
6. The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests."

The ending has already been written: the battle is already won. But the devil is counting on the world not to have read the Book. Read it, so he can't fool you.

I pray for the families of those killed in the blasts, and for the comfort of the Lord to flood London and the nation. We must pick up our efforts, heat up our prayers and FIGHT. Terrorism doesn't get to win.

Yes madam. He's the father of those made fatherless and comforter of those in fear. He's Jehovah Rapha, and Jehovah Shalom. Let his healing and peace descend upon the madness that threatens to consume the city.
