In Esperanza today we went to the market to witness, we encountered 'Pan'... He lives in the woods and tells me he has his path. We did share the gospel, bought him a red tea, gave tracts and talked about Jesus. He says he has ..... he has his path?
He quoted us his poem, played his flute .... lives in the woods. To him Jesus was a good teacher.. We told him how he can turn to Him as Savior, Lord and God. ...
We met a man named Gordee and shared the gospel, he thought Jesus was a good man and when I asked him about where the human race came from .... and what is after death, his answer was " thats a good question" "thats a good question". Gordee like a few others we talked to felt the the quest was to find the answers to these big questions but that they did not have a clue how.
If God is not the answer about origins, life, living, meaning, death and the after life then who is, what is it and where are they?
When you think about it out side of Christ what are the answers to lifes most underlying questions?
Where did we come from? God, nothing, random, aliens? Whats the meaning of it all, and what happens at death and why do we die, lie, cheat, make war, harm others? The Cross, who Jesus is and why Jesus hung on it engages all the answers. There is in Him a look away from the unanswered questions, there is the message that God is and that God has come for us. That God loves us and that we can come to know God..personally. In Jesus we find the final hope, the meaning of life, the reason for the presence of evil, the what and why of death ............and the triumph of God over it all.
I find in all the discussions with so many in the last 5 days that most are without hope, answers, ultimate reasons and ............. then there is that sad surrender to no answers.
It is clear that some are open to anything because they have ....nothing.
Next to a man who plays PAN... I wonder if he realizes who Pan really is. He rejects Christ.
In the Da Vinci Code templers 'church' building at Rennes-le-Chateau, where occult book stores, conspiracy and the promotion of a false christ who is not God nor Savior swells and that statue of a devil greets people ... I unleashed....... I couldn't stand the silent dead occult presence. I had to raise my voice to God (Acts 4) and pray inside... to defy the darkness, deception and lies of gnosticism. I prayed and asked God to crush the lie of the spirit of antichrist that pervades the place. To crush and counter the lie that has gone out from here in the movie/and writings. I gave praise to God over and over again, to Jesus as Savior, Lord and coming King..... and asked God to save, heal and deliver. I felt His powerful presence and His hope surround me... I did not hear anyone but when I was done I turned around and 4 or 5 people tourists came in and were listening, one was sitting in a pew, they stood silent to the prayers and declarations, praise and spiritual warfare prayer. I really with all of my heart believe God will answer in power the prayers of this Day-December 2 2012
THE REVELATION OF GOD
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understooda it.
6There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.b
10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of natural descent,c nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,d who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’” 16From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,e,f who is at the Father’s side, has made him known. Johns gospel
