A Test of Faith

Christians are facing the greatest period of personal threats to their faith. Is it happening to you?

Every day something challenges our resolve to remain faithful. This includes:

  • Public opinion
  • Political opposition
  • Our own desires
  • The media propoganda, and
  • Many other things

Do you ask when facing these challenges “why me? why us? why them?” We can all ask these questions and there are two scriptural answers note the first at Ecclesiastes 8: 9 “All of this I have seen, and I applied my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, during the time that man has dominated man to his harm”. this point is emphasised in the Psalms 146: 3 “Do not put your trust in princes Nor in a son of man, who cannot bring salvation.”

Human rulership, leadership and the inclination of the heart are never leading to salvation. Our lives are too short, we have the tendency to look after our own and left to ourselves the outcomes are always littered with unintended consequences.

The second scriptural reason 1 Peter 5: 8 “Keep your senses, be watchful! Your adversary, the Devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking to devour someone.” that someone is you. Why? Let the Bible explain Revelation 12: 7 “And war broke out in heaven: Miʹcha·el and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9 So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.” He is on a limited timeline. Revelation 12: 12 ...”Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”

The scriptures give us hope, however, notice what the Bible also explains in Revelation 3: 11 “I am coming quickly. Keep holding fast to what you have, so that no one may take your crown.” Jesus promise to act on our behalf

Action on our part

We are not to fight or engage with the Satanic controlled governments and leadership of this world. We are to focus on what Jesus instructed at John 17: 3 “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.”

We must get to know God and Jesus Christ. Our faith draws us into union with Christ and his father. Therefore, we need to take note of the time, grasp the limited opportunities and build our faith.
