The Christians’ Hide-Out! (I)

THE greatest enemy of man in this world is the devil. His major assignment against man is to kill, to steal, and to destroy, in every area of life. And that is why he (the devil) walks about like a roaring lion, looking for whom to eat, and looking for whose lives to waste, through whatever means, using his human agents,as written in1 Peter 5: 8.
And some of his human agents, to mention only a few, can be armed robbers, hired killers, kidnappers, the wicked in the society and native doctors, hired by your enemies to carry out this wicked assignment against you. Jesus, who cannot lie, said in Matthew 10:36,“And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.” Even these human agents of satan are found in the Church and even amongst the so-called Pastors, Prophets, as written in Jeremiah 5:26, who have become tools in the hands of Satan, to catch others in order to kill either physically or spiritually, or to put them in bondage of fear, by bewitching them, so that they can remote-control
their lives. In 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, it is written,
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness whose end shall be according to their works” and in verse 13, it is written, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.” Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7:16.“By their fruits, Ye shall know them”. They perform lying wonders, and with sweet tongue, make money out of their congregation, as
written in 2 Peter.2:3, and I quote, “These teachers in their greed will tell you anything to extort money from you. But God has condemned them long ago and their destruction is on the way” – (RSV).
These are all tools in the hand of the devil. As long as the devil lives, he will continue to go about seeking whom to destroy. Christians must therefore, remain in a hide-out, which must be beyond the reach of Satan and all his human agents. Even Jesus Christ, when He was born, had to be taken to a “hide-out”, in Egypt, when King Herod, the human agent of satan, sought to kill Him, as written in Matthew. 2: 13 – 14, 19 – 21.
If Jesus Christ, as a baby had an enemy, who sought to kill Him, and if satan could use one of His apostles, Judas, an insider, to betray Him to His enemies outside, much more then, as mere mortals, are we exposed to enemies within and outside the family.
Our safety is not in any human being, neither is it in any cross (be it wooden or metal) or in charms or
rosaries; neither is it in “anointing oil” or in anointed handkerchiefs or in anointed candles, or in the reciting of Psalms, for protection. NO!! The hiding – place of any Christian,“is to ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY,” as written in Psalm.91: 1b. And what qualifies one to abide under this shadow of the Almighty God, is to have the Spirit of Christ in-dwelling in him/her. Anyone, who does not have the Spirit of Christ is none of Christ, as written in Romans 8:9c. A man or woman, a boy or a girl, who has not the Spirit of Christ, must have the spirit of the devil, and must therefore be an easy prey for Satan to devour at his own will. Being born of the Spirit of Christ is not enough; that is just a pre-requisite to come under the shadow of the Almighty God.
But if a Christian, who is born of the Spirit of Christ, must be securely protected under this shadow of the Almighty God, then he/she must DWELL in an
inner “SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH GOD”. And what is thatinner secret place? It is the TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD. The truth of the WORD OF GOD is that word of God that is pure and free from any human addition or subtraction, and also free from any human interpretation. Most Christians today, are NOT dwelling in this “Secret Place” of the MOST HIGH GOD, because they are either destitutes of the truth, or have rejected the truth or have turned away their ears from the truth, because they cannot endure sound doctrine, as written in 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
