More are They That are With Us

Afghanistan has seized the attention of the whole world. Now more than ever we need to keep our focus on the Heavenly realm of spiritual reality. Last Monday I wrote about the evil nature of man without Jesus. I explained the background of our ministry name from the account of the prophet Elisha when surrounded by the Syrian army. His servant was terrified, but Elisha saw a truer reality than the flesh and blood troops on the ground. He saw that the Syrian army was outnumbered by a heavenly army of chariots of fire. This was my comment Monday: “More are they that are with us than they that are with them. Look into the spiritual realm and see the chariots of fire and the angels of Yehovah God surrounding and outnumbering our enemies. We have read the end of the Book, and we win!”

This applies to the Christians in Afghanistan today. Pray for them. Yes! But, pray with faith. Pray with your eyes on the heavenly reality. Yehovah God is still in total control. According to Joel Richardson of Sheep Among Wolves, the greatest evangelism on the planet is first in Iran, and second in Afghanistan. He says also that the greatest persecution of Christians is North Korea, followed by Afghanistan. You won’t see it on the news. We have to sharpen our spiritual eyes. I pray as Elisha did for his panicked servant, that God would open our eyes to see the chariots of fire and His holy angels.

So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Yehovah, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then Yehovah opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17

Afghani Christians are living in the final Book of Revelation. It is amazing, but true, that Jesus gives supernatural grace at the very time of greatest persecution. Throughout history there are stories of Christians who ask God to let them serve Him even to the death.

From Facebook 8-21-21: “We received news that the underground church in Kabul Afghanistan has been martyred. Our friends have been in contact and met together last night in deep prayer. The last words she spoke was “ we feel your prayers because this supernatural boldness came over us and we were singing in the spirit even the kids said mom we will not deny Jesus. As they were on the phone they heard screaming and gun shots. God is so powerful they went to be with the creator filled with joy. We will be fasting tommorow for the churches still fighting please join.”
 
KEEP PRAYING! Their reward is great. May the enemy encounter Jesus and His love that they repent.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”  Revelation 12:11-12

Pray that persecuted believers will find the supernatural authority Jesus declared, that allowed Him to have peace all the way to the cross. We need not fear man or the devil. Yehovah God has all power and authority.

Then Pilate said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You?” Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.” John 19:10-11

Yes, pray for the Afghani believers, but pray with faith and hope and even joy of the eternal victories being won even now in this present day. I continue to hear loud and strong in the Holy Spirt:

More are They That are With Us Than They that are With Them!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain for Israel,
