Satanists Pray AGAINST the Church!

July 15, 2009 at 8:23 AM

I received the emailed version of Jan Markell’s newsletter “Understanding the Times” this morning and was a bit shocked to read the cover article by Heidi Swander.  Here are the first two paragraphs:

I was stunned recently by the story of a pastor from Brazil.  One day in the not-too-distant past he was airborne and seated next to a lady who, at 6 p.m., began praying fervently.  When an opportune moment presented itself, he asked her if she was a Christian.  Much to his chagrin she said, no, that she was praying to her father, Satan, for the demise of pastor so-and-so.

As the conversation progressed, this Brazilian pastor found out that the Church of Satan worldwide has set aside the 6 p.m. hour every day to pray for the demise of the Christian church, and most specifically for its pastors. It would also appear that they assume or are assigned specific Christian leaders to pray against.

Heidi goes on to remind us that it is 6pm someplace throughout the world at any given moment.  The saddest part of this entire thing is not that Satan’s minions pray to him for his will to be done, but that I do not pray as fervently as they do!  This is a wake up call and should be to all of us.  Even though Jesus said that “the gates of hell” will not prevail against His Church, we can assume from that comment that they will TRY desperately to destroy the Church.

Is it not interesting that our defeated foe continues to work hard AS IF he has NOT been defeated?!  He knows his time is short and he also knows he will not prevail, yet he has not given up.  He continues to move ahead with his monstrous plan to destroy the Church.  Barring that, he creates as much havoc as possible, with one skirmish after another against
God’s elect; ultimately, against God Himself.

Folks, if you are a Christian reading this, then it goes without saying that prayer is the best weapon we have against the dark forces of Satan’s global empire.  As we know, he constantly roams the earth looking for anyone that he can devour.  He is the prince of the power of the air and uses that to its fullest to accomplish the tasks he has lined up.

Many are saying that we are in the End Times.  I believe it and in fact, with everything heating up the way it has been, it becomes nearly impossible to say that we are NOT in the End Times.  We await one significant event, which will kick off the Tribulation/Great Tribulation:  the signing of the 7 year covenant with Israel, by one man who will act as leader of the “free” world.  This maniacal genius – spawned from hell itself – will pretend to be an ally and friend of Israel, but of course will simply be biding his time until he can overthrow them.

Christian:  we know the end of the story as it was written in eternity past!  Christ is victorious and therefore WE are victorious IN Him.  Paul tells us in Ephesians that we are seated with Christ now:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:3)

The entirety of Ephesians speaks of our calling and position in Christ, along with the manifold blessings of being “in” Him.  He is the Head of His Church, which is His Body.  There is nothing that can stand against Him.  Our responsibility though is to pray and trust.  We need to pray for His will, His wisdom and His protection for all within His Body.  If Satanists around the globe are praying for their master’s will to be accomplished, how much more do WE as Christians need to pray that God’s will be accomplished?

Daniel of the Old Testament was a virtual prayer warrior, who understood the need for and privilege of praying to the God of the universe.  God does NOT need our prayers to accomplish His goals.  He invites us to JOIN Him in warring against “powers, principalities and powers” which seek to overthrow God’s will and His eventual Kingdom.  In doing so, we share in the blessings of that victory.  Pray.  Pray long and pray often.
