Spiritual Warfare

We have just arrived from the family camp and new tasks waited for us.
While we were in the camp, 25 young people arrived from Norway to help new houses building  in thre villages and share the Gospel . They brought  building materials and financial support as well. They went back on the weekend, we arrived and 25 other people from the other Rumanian DTS. In this international team were some family with kids: Portuguase dad, Swiss mom with 3 kids, German dad, Philippino mom with 2 kids, American mom, British dad 2 kids, Rumanian couple with an adopted Hungarian daughter, together with some German and Swiss young people.
The house was full with life, mornings I set the tables, made coffe and tee for 50 people. Fortunatelly the weather was sunny, we could eat outside. Afternoons were sport programs, evenings talent show, bonefire, big conversations.

Every morning we could listen to teaching from Dean Sherman. Petra read last December his book about relationship. She showed me some details from the book, these helped me to understand why broken the human relationships so often and what should we do against this. When I heard I will have opportunity get to know him personaly I was very glad. I was not disapointed, he is a man of great learning, kind, have a good sense of humor.
Lot of people visited his teachings – almost from the nearly cities the english speaking people. We needed a bigger place, so we cleaned the close disused lutheran church.

Dean thought about the relationships and the spiritual warfare.
God’s first commandant was: Take care for the enviroment, rule over all in the earth! Their relationship with God was blessed.
Adam and Eve sined against God. Their relationship with God became broken. The independent not blessed by God.
Sin is disobedience to God, bad relationship.
Since that we don’t have rule over death, sin. We have rule over each other.
If you want blessing of God, keep in unity! Evil is blocked when we loving God and each other. Evil only able to entere to bad relationship.
Ruling over Evil, not each other!
Death rules over us because of the sin. Death came from sin not from God!
„But from the time of Adam to the time of Moses death ruled over all mainkaind, even over those who did not sin the same way that Adam did whe he disobeyed God’s command. Adam was the figure of the one who was to come.” (Rome 5:12)
We have to fight agains the sin. We are living on the earth, but we don’t fight of the world’s weapon! It doesn’t changes human heart.
„… put on the full armour of God, so that you will be able to stand up against the Devil’s evil tricks. For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age!(Ephesians 6:11-12)
The battle is not yours, is God’s.
Fighting with prayer against Satan! „The prayer of a good person has a powerful effect.”(James 5,16)
Who is praying MUST BELIEVE will get from the Lord what asked.
„But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubt is like a vawe in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind. A person like that, unable to make up his mind and undecided in all he does, must not think that he will receive anything from the Lord.” (James 1,6-7)
Don’t be a passiv Christians! Don’t just go to the church! Be the church!
Have to be active, personal relationship with God!
