A Word of  Encouragement from our
Director of Missions

“Surely, It Will Get Easier...Right?

  Haven’t we all been amazed, if not shocked, by the persecution of fellow believers around the world? On May 10-13, 2017, some 600 representatives of persecuted Christians from 130 countries assembled in Washington D.C. for the first-ever World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians. The summit was hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Franklin Graham said to the group, “Today, powerful demonic forces that are absolutely opposed to Christ and His church reach across national borders and cultures, and they see Jesus Christ and His followers as their enemy in their struggle for world wide dominion.”

  This is Satan’s great attempt (still, today) to “...come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time” (Revelations 12:12). We are certainly in a cultural war but we are also facing great spiritual warfare. We are struggling “...not against flesh and blood, but against...world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places”                                    

(Ephesians 6:12). This behooves us to “fight fire with fire”—the fire of Satan’s wrath with the fire of God’s Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “...all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (II Timothy 3:12).  But “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (I John 4:4).

  The church today—and each pastor, in particular—must be wise to Satan’s schemes. Satan would like to divide the church, keep it in turmoil and keep it ineffective with the gospel. We must resist the devil and appropriate the power of God’s word and God’s Spirit in our lives to overcome our enemy. Pray for your fellow Christ-followers both here at home and around the world that we will be faithful and true to our Savior even in the face of great persecution.

Encouragingly your, Russell Cook
